  1. Your Main Event reminded me of the time Kennedy had that whole oratory (though none of the other players were there) — which i roleplayed out — and may have actually swayed an npc or two. It also helped that I was rolling well, but I’m sure, had I failed, you (byron, as gm) would have made the crowd disperse or have Kennedy make a fool of himself.

    I think the real key, is more than having the players describe their actions (before and after the roll), but to (like the problem you have with JD) have the players Remain In Character! I know OoC stuff can interfere, but those obstacles can be banned, or at least limited during game.

    This is a roleplaying game. The whole point is to step out of real life and immerse yourself in a world and role that is different. Perhaps if there was an IMMEDIATE reward for good roleplaying, then maybe those people who have a trouble getting into character, will actually try and do so.
