Do you smell it? Do you enjoy how it smells? Did it smell you?
Smell is one thing that is so often left to the side in a game. Animals smell for hundreds of feet. Monsters under the bed can smell where Mom and Dad are sleeping and know when to attack. Races smell other races and know when to engage or to avoid. Gamers smell after hours of nonstop playing. Yeah, anyway…
So what is the deodorant for your character, monster, and gamer? Dirt, mud, food, death, over the counter smelly stuff? Did you smell the rain, fire, the zombies, the undead, or the pretty girl?
Roll for it.
Don't forget this important sense.
