27 years. I mean, for those who played White Wolf’s Vampire: The Masquerade or other World of Darkness games. Not that, um, I was one of those weeeeeird people

Dang you beat me to it. Vampire The Masquerade was my first. I ran a Vampire game for a little over 2 years until I joined the Military. It seems I've always related soak to damage in games. My love of Vampire is most likely why the Narrative Dice System felt just right my first play through.

Ah so you've been do our gaming sessions.

 Our game last week degenerated into drunken babbling and fighting over a large stuffed crocodile in order to better lay on the floor while gaming. We've decided to have a "sober" week this Friday because, well the game goes nowhere most weeks. It doesn't help that one of my players is a bartender and makes wicked good mixed drinks.

That is the danger of adult gaming. It sounds like your group made the wise call.

What's wrong with Soak?

 

That it looks too much like a mechanism to mitigate the lethality of the game which actually does not rely on or enhance the narration.

It's clumsy but it is easy.
