Okay, time to start up the most dangerous Fiasco playset ever created. It could completely unravel, and be totally awesome. Who knows.

I'll sort of "run things" for the time being until things get going...

Max of four people:
1.ghostOfChristmas (me) signed in
2.downeymb signed in
3.Narl signed in
4. Rishi signed in

Once we're all signed in, I'll get the seat order organized, and the dice pool going.

Hey... Matt (downeymb) directed me towards this thread, since I was trying to get a PBF of Fiasco going last month, and it never got off the ground. I'd like to join in.

I've only played Fiasco once (F2F).

No problem. In some regards, the "timing" of forum play doesn't really do a good job of showing off this game. Having F2F experience is actually pretty helpful, I think, since you have a better understanding of how the game is supposed to be played. You'll probably miss a lot of the "back and forth" creative aspects of F2F; but at least you'll understand why it's not there.

This is the link to the playset:

http://wordstudio.net/thegist/?p=2237

Once we get confirmation from Matt, I set up the table.

I just finished watching season 5 of Doctor Who last night, so I am all set for some time travel shenanigans!

"Time to get the wacky Quantum Accelerator started! Let me just strap in here and..HEY I told you never to run the control panel while you've got your 48 ounce of coffee in your hand, you might "

ZZZZZAAAAAAAP!


Feel free copy and quote the token below when you make your selections.

Rishi has the first decision.

As per suggestions in the playset...

We'll have to figure out who gets to play the "Youngest Sam" as the situation becomes more clear. Then everyone will be assigned their age based on chronological order around the table. Youngest Sam will get to call the first scene.

All right. I'll pick up a 4 and put a Need between me and Matt - To Undo. It seems very time-travel appropriate and leaves room for all kinds of trouble.

Matt's next?

And I'll snag another 4 and put an Object between me and Narl - Valuable. Gotta have something that goes back and forth between various copies of us!

By the way, the Fiasco book recommends that each character is only tied to one need. Also, for four players they recommend one location, one object and two needs. So do we now assume the other need is between Narl and Scott and that there's a location between me and Scott?

We need a location, in any case.

I'll grab a 6, and throw a Milestone between me and Scott.

Let's make this interesting. I'll grab a 5 and define the milestone between Rishi and Scott.

And let finish off the relationships. 6 gives Matt and Leonie "Far Future and Distant Past."

Which would seem to imply on first glance that this would make Loenie "youngest Sam" working occur way around the table to Matt as "oldest Sam."

Or maybe not.

This would make sense, in that you probably only want a character chasing after one need, instead of two of them.

This makes sense in the world of four different characters (to get characters to compete against each other due to different needs). In this world where we are all playing the same character, I have no idea how this impacts the game. Obviously, as a character grows up, his needs change, so I have no problem keeping to this recommendation.

In fact, having old Sam come back from the future arguing with a younger Sam with two different needs could turn out to be quite amusing.

Hmmmm...I can definitely see some stuff going on here. If I am the distant future, and Rishi and I have a need to undo and our relationship is defined by love and loss....

Ooooooo.....

I can see some tragedy befalling our dear poor Sam. How tragic!

I like the idea of Matt being the oldest Sam and Leonie being the youngest.

Let's solidify that with one of those 2 that we need to use.

Matt gets to be disfigured.

I suppose Leonie could be disfigured and I've already discovered the miracle cure, as well. But hell, I like the idea that I'm a mess.

Since Leonie and I have a valuable object, let's get a need for that in play.

Actually, it could be fun both ways.

A) Young Sam is disfigured, future Sam goes into the past to give him the serum that will make him beautiful, so the rest of his life will supposedly become better (and of course that won't happen)

B) Young Sam is beautiful, future Sam goes into the past to warn him of the incident that causes the disfigurement (and most likely makes things worse)
