Bio Break

It’s sometimes interesting to think about what our culture thinks important enough to have rules in games. I’ve never killed anyone, or grappled a giant, or fallen into lava but RPGs certainly have those eventualities covered.

But I have pooped. In fact, I’ve pooped a lot. Likely once a day for most of my life. Sometimes two or even three times. I’m not entirely sure we need a lot of rules covering this. Knowing size, colour, and texture is probably needless. But ignoring something so common seems odd.

And where exactly do you go while in a dungeon? Do you just find a corner somewhere? Given Rule One of adventuring is “never split the party” and going off by yourself is certain death, this might lead to some awkward party interactions.
