Beware: Hazards Ahead (System Agnostic)

A guest post by Bobby Evans

In my experience I’ve noticed that a lot of first time or novice GMs lean heavily on the combat side of most systems, but there is so much more.  Sure that plate armored fighter has faced off against a dragon, but what about quicksand.  Your wizard might fly right over pit traps, but heaven help him is he catches a cold.  Hazards can come in a lot of shapes and sizes each one just as harsh as the last.
