Intrigue and Combat in one game?
« on: October 31, 2022, 05:04:30 AM »
So, my friend has been running a 5e game, we took a break, and she's planning on starting a new one soon. We're looking at doing a one shot this week to kinda of get everyone back into the rp swing, and it's sort called the elephant in the room to speak up-

The issue is that most people in the group are more into intrigue and interpersonal drama, while I'm more about dungeoncrawling and combat--if I were any good at interpersonal drama or achieving objectives through talking, I'd have a better life right now.

Is there a system, or maybe a hack or something, that handles this sort of split in player tastes?

In this kind of situation people generally play an adventure that contains both so everyone can be happy (I don't know of any 5e third party/homebrew stuff that would handle this).  If you're like me you could also look into playing something that isn't D&D but I don't know if playing a system that handles intrigue as another sort of combat would make the intrigue focused people happy.
