Give the monsters a fighting chance using this simple house rule.
In our game we have agreed on a simple house rule, when the game start each characters has 2 light fate tokens which can only be used when the player is rolling a die for a monster against another character, by spending a fate token you can reroll a single die, you can only use one token per encounter and they cannot be resplinished. This makes some encounters particularly deadly like the Basilisk for example or it can change the outcome of the game from victory to defeat if used judiciously against the Lord of Darkness.
Alternatively you could decide that each time your resplenish fate you also resplenish one or more of your light tokens or you could decide that each character start with the same amount of fate tokens, but this would make some character more powerful than others.
Tell me what you guys think about this house rule.
