Each Explanation

  • Start with an overview of the mechanic, then go into a deeper explanation.
  • If there are many aspects of the mechanic to explain, consider using a bullet list.
  • Include an example if the mechanic's application is not obvious.
  • Images are not required, but can be a useful visual aid.

Link to Other Mechanics

Add links to other system explanations to invite the reader to delve deeper into learning related mechanics. For example, the explanation for Crush Triggers in BBCP includes links to related systems like Barrier Blocking.
