[RPG] How to lie in Dungeon World


I can't quite understand how, if at all, you roll to lie in Dungeon World.

Parlay does not work because you don't necessarily have some leverage on the character.

You don't roll to lie. You roll to see what the lie gets you.

Stating a thing that's not true doesn't require a roll, as it doesn't necessarily provoke a Move. The roll comes in when you want the person to act based on that lie, and that will usually suggest a different Move based on what you want to accomplish.
