Let’s run this baby through its paces. I want this to be a game to see what kinds of cool things the engine lets us come up with creatively.
I will attempt to have very frequent scenes, during my active hours, since cards are limited per scene. If you get left behind too many times you’ll be De-Animated if you are holding up the story, but that’s ok because characters reincarnate infinitely. Any time you “De-Animate” a signal will be sent to Central Reanimation. Once you catch up just edit your character’s name by adding one to your Reanimation Counter (use a Roman numeral after your name, DACJ I would be my new name after my first resurrection, then DACJ II, etc…) and await printing. Your new body will be 4d printed in no time and your personality uploaded and updated to show your new emergency medical services debit.
Once you make the name change, jump right back in the story, give a brief (or not, whatever its its good story) resurrection story and Bob’s your uncle. Of course, unless you were awarded a free resurrection you’ll have to find a way to eliminate your Emergency Medical Services debit (Assets) cards before you may play any Strength cards. Its all in this pamphlet.
I will introduce challenges and scheme to pit the players against one another, and along the way try out some methods of conflict resolution.
If you win control of an outcome you can move other characters around but not permanently incapacitate, kill, maim or teabag them. Keep in mind the spirit of this exercise on both sides of that coin, since I expect most people to have frequent experiences of both. If it goes well maybe we’ll figure out a reasonable way to kill each other too.
If someone reasonably objects to a recent move let me know in commentary. If its too late to ret-con you’ll be handsomely rewarded for your Wrongful De-Animation upon your (free) resurrection.
I want this to be fast and loose, and want you to be intelligent and to take liberties to a point and expect liberties to be taken. That said, if I feel someone is either deliberately or unintentionally and unalterably (meaning I’ve tried talking to you and we can’t agree on my vision) hurting the experience I will retire them permanently (with no handsome reward).
Setting is Faux-Detroit, a stereo-type riddled, cliched, futuristic version of Detroit, Michigan. Make up whatever cyber-punky tech stuff you want if its in your character and fits the story. If it goes too far outside my realm I’ll ask you to modify it someway. Expect plenty of tropes and hackneyed stories.
Maybe no one will join this game, it probably sounds like a cluster-f*, but I’m curious what this puppy can do…
Let’s go tell a great story
