Frayed Knights Interview

Rampant Games Jay Barnson talked to Gamepro about the soon to be released Frayed Knights: The Skull of S'makh-Daon.
Barnson's also trying to add to the genre with a new system he calls "drama stars." You earn "drama stars" when "dramatic things" happen to your character, and the rewards can be so great that they even revive your party when characters are "incapacitated" (you don't die in Frayed Knights unless the entire party is KO'd). But drama stars don't carry over with every save -- Barnson says that they only carry over if "you continue exactly where you quit in a previous session." The idea is to keep you from "save-scumming," as he terms it, reloading when a die roll or encounter goes against you.
