So here’s the deal. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I know you’ve heard it all before, but this is the real thing. A sure thing. No risk. Huge payoff.
Don’t you give me that face. I’m not kidding here. We have all the intel. We have blueprints of the bank. We have a man in the inside. We have a professional team. Look, I didn’t even want to tell you about it. Less people means the money gets divided into bigger piles. A bigger pile for me means I get to spend the next fifteen years in my own brand new vacation house on the beach, drinking margaritas. But Big Berta insisted that you’d be informed, so here we are.
Yeah, I don’t really like margaritas either. So, are you in?
This game is a short game, intended to take 6-8 scenes.
The characters will probably have some background connections to each other, which we will be able to discuss in the comments before the game begins. I’ve recently discovered that this is a fantastic way to enhance character interaction, and I want to try it out here.
I’ve prepared some initial strength and weakness cards, but I did it mostly to amuse myself. Feel free to invent new ones, or to use those that are supplied.
The characters should all have some sort of criminal background. You can use the nature cards that I wrote for inspiration, but once more, do not feel bound by them. I only ask that you refrain from submitting undercover cops, snitches, or any other character which is working with the law enforcement agencies.
If any player moves another player’s character, please ask him beforehand, and do it nicely. Afterwards, be receptive for change. Some people are very protective of their characters (I know I am).
If anything in the game makes you feel uncomfortable, please let us know immediately, and the problematic subject will be avoided. Respect for other people’s triggers is critical. Having said that, this is a story about bank robbers and it will probably have some basic violence, filthy language and guns. If any of those things feels as if it might bother you, please discuss this with me beforehand and we will decide together if this is an issue.
