At the table, Tash rolls a bunch of dice as Farid describes what’s happening. Five of Tash’s dice come up six or more.\
Farid: You feel a prickle on the back of your neck. Roll Awareness to detect the supernatural creature sneaking up on you.
Tash: Five successes.
Farid: You’re sure now, a demon stalks you, hidden in the shadows. Roll Alertness to spot it.
Tash: It’s been a long time. Alertness is different than Awareness?
Farid: Awareness is a sixth sense to detect the supernatural. Alertness is being able to see what’s in front of you.
Tash rolls her dice. Most of them come up ones.
Tash: Botch. What does that mean?
In the game, Tash is staring right at a hulking demon without even seeing it. Emma grabs her axe, exasperated.
Tash: I just know there’s a demon around here somewhere…
Emma: Oh, for Cain’s sake!
