So, I've recently been toying around with a new RP mechanic, but I wanted a bit of popular opinion before I try to expand on this concept. In a roleplay, a group of 6 characters work together to solve puzzles in order to unlock new abilities. Regardless of who solves the puzzle, the entire group gains a new ability, less one random member. The reason one person is excluded is to create an interesting problem for the group. The group members individually never know if their efforts will be rewarded for any given puzzle. However, I also can see that this creates a power imbalance in the cast that could be considered unfair. I'm currently not sure if this is a good idea, but I'd like to hear how you'd react to being a part of such a system.
