 The need to keep players informed about creatures'​ potential, advantages and the Game Leader'​s dice rolls has led 6d6 to adopting an open-book approach to leading the game. For the most part the Game Leader does not hide monster sheets and other paraphernalia away from the players. It is a literal open book. Not all information is shared with the players, being surprised is part of the fun of role playing; but most of the Game Leader'​s information does not need to be secret. Game Leaders are encouraged to give players a quick overview of a monster'​s abilities before a fight. It speeds the game up and also reflects the characters'​ abilities to judge and assess danger that is hard to replicate in purely descriptive terms. Ultimately players need to be trusted not to abuse the situation nor to act on information their character does not possess. If your players cannot be trusted in this way it may be time to find new players. The need to keep players informed about creatures'​ potential, advantages and the Game Leader'​s dice rolls has led 6d6 to adopting an open-book approach to leading the game.
