Dogs are famous for learning new commands all the time. Characters in Strays get better, just like pets learn new stuff, and just like kids get smarter every day! Milestones Characters in Strays get better by wrapping up story arcs, which is when the GM rewards everyone with milestones. After stopping a particularly nasty bad guy, after freeing a bunch of animals, after accomplishing anything that’s a big campaign goal, the GM should stop, take a look at the group and their great deeds, and dole out a little extra lovin’.
Whenever one of your aspects gets you into trouble, makes your life a little harder, or introduces some complications to the plot, that aspect is being compelled. This happens one of two ways: Decision compels: This type of compel forces you to make a hard choice, maybe for some sort of responsibility you have, or a negative character trait that keeps you from thinking clearly. Maybe chasing those squirrel thieves into the dark woods is dangerous, but you’ve got Scruffy Justice as an aspect, and the GM wants you to go running off after them.
2: Decide whose action it is. 3. Take an action on your turn, if needed, defend against actions on someone else’s turn. First off, the GM needs to be clear to everyone who is involved, and what the scene is like. This will normally entail a quick recap of who’s there (and participating), and also a few scene/situation aspects (quick little phrases like “garbage-strewn alley” or “empty lot with tall grass” is enough). For a conflict, the GM also has to define zones. Zones are the loose measurements of distance in Strays, breaking a big area down into smaller, bite-sized, chunks, normally just for a conflict.
