Stand Strong in Your Convictions

Lauren McManamon and I talk about her game Girl Underground as we discuss the move Stand Strong in Your Convictions. At the heart of this game is a sense of empowerment and discovery by The Girl who is striving to turn imposed manners into personal beliefs.

The GM is pretty hands-off with this move, only stepping in to mix things up on a miss.
