Thanks to Shazbodiak for the idea.
You will be playing one of the various personalities of John, an insane man from Minneapolis.
A quick summary of the rules can be found here for the original game, but for the Storium adaptation we will be playing it a little differently. It is important that you read the rules though if you don’t already know how to play.
Each voice or personality has 2 or 3 skills. Most voices only have 2, but you can start with 3 if you start with 7 willpower instead of 10.
This game uses a currency called Willpower to earn the spot to control John.
Your obsessions are the things your personality really wants to achieve, it is essentially a life endeavour. They come in three different tiers: Level 1 (pretty easy), Level 2 (more difficult/risky) and Level 3 (nearly impossible). You need one of each. Please write your obsessions in your character discussion area (not description!) and I will grade them if they’re not graded correctly already.
Scoring is simple: Add up all the (obsession level * number of times achieved) and that is your total score for the game. The highest score wins.
Bids, skills and your obsessions can be recorded in the character log between me and yourself. You should keep these private if you want to play competetively. I will give you your own private google spreadsheet keeping track of everything for you once you have given me all the required information.
When in control of John, typically you would describe the action that John undertakes and roll a die to confirm whether it succeeds or not. For this you will post the action that you would like John to undertake along with an optional willpower bid and I will be calling out the roll on my end in the discussion on the right. (Storium, you should have text dice rolls already like Roll20!)
Personalities can be named to your liking. A picture and description are encouraged, the description detailing how John received your personality.
None of Storium’s obstacles, strengths, weaknesses or subplots will be used in this game, so you can just leave them blank.
