Where should I put a question about how a homebrew and roleplaying?
I have a question about how a mechanic I'm considering implementing would affect roleplay, and I'm wondering where I should put it.
I'm considering designing my own RPG, and I'm wondering to what extent social rolls should be a part of conversational gameplay. On one hand, having lots of different social rolls would allow the rules to more accurately reflect a character who is good at some but not all aspects of conversation (e.g, being good at noticing lies but bad at telling them could be represented by a high Sense Motive and low Bluff), but having many different social rolls can cause conversations to collapse into just rolling with little or no actual in-character speech. On the other hand, having few or no social rolls causes a character's social proficiency to be almost entirely dependent on the player's acting, for better or for worse.

Re: Where should I put a question about how a homebrew and roleplaying?
Sheriff: Either but not both. Roleplaying General seems best to me because you don't have any homebrew to offer, you're just asking a general question about how social rolls affect gameplay.
You could do what you suggest add long add you do it in sequence and not simultaneously. We don't want people creating two threads in different sections for the dante thing.
