Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned: if you'll pardon my language, father, I just can't stop fudging the fucking dice.
I've been playing with this group of new players since last year and I still have yet to even KO one of their characters. Last session I must have fudged like eight or nine rolls in succession.
>an enemy caster passed a crucial saving throw, I fudged it to fail
>a successful grapple turned into a successful dodge, I ignored the enemy creature's stat bonus and let the character dodge
>a critical hit turned into an outright miss because the player was panicking about his character's health.
They probably would have lost the fight if I hadn't done all that.

I don't even know how the players would handle it, at this point. I'm not certain they know the rules for death saving throws. It's at least my fault for letting them get this far without facing any serious harm, but I know at least one of them is prone to ragequits and I definitely don't want that. They get upset enough if they roll poorly or if they're slowed or grappled or otherwise inconvenienced at all, but if the fights are too easy they also get bored.

It seems like everything I do either bores or irritates them, but they all insist at the end of the sessions that I did a good job. I don't get it. I'm worried that they're only in the game because they assume everyone else is, and recently one of them has started insisting that she's always too busy and that we should just play without her so I'm worried that it's all on the verge of falling apart for real.

Sorry if that was a lot. I needed to get it off my chest. I'm just not sure what to do.

I make me sick. Maybe there are books like this I can just read instead.

I really did not expect this. It is a very well done short story with very good use of understatement. It feels very real because of how well the writer described just what was relevant. I'm a big nerdy baby for getting choked up by a story as simple as this. I think I'm going to go to bed now and hug a pillow while I go. Thank you for sharing it.
