From publisher blurb:
RANDOMLY GENERATE AN AMAZING TIME!
Maybe you're a new storyteller and you'd like some help getting your first chronicle going.
Maybe you're a profoundly experienced storyteller and you just want to add some oddities and complications to help bring a story to life.
Maybe you're a fan of Mage: The Podcast and you just want to subsidize my purchase of a new microphone.
This book. Will help. All of you. Probably.
A Magickal Fiasco: Full Tilt Story Creation for Mage is a guide to story seeding, a process where you randomly generate a web of relationships, intrigue, and motivations, hooks to get the story going, and some complications because no story ends how anyone thinks it should. Based on the wildly popular game Fiasco by Bully Pulpit Games, all you need are some 10-sided dice (or their digital equivalent), sticky notes (or their digital equivalent), and a dream (or its digital equivalent) and you too can create plot lines and story hooks never before seen in under an hour.
But I'm an amazing ST why would I use this?
Maybe you want to run a one shot, or characters encounter NPCs you've not planned, or a player said "oh yeah, I bet you couldn't run a randomly-generated plot from one of the guys at Mage: The Podcast" and you wish to prove that person wrong. In all these cases this tool will help.
