"Pique" RPG System Concept 2 (diceless, court intrigue)
Pique is a role-playing game system that uses cards to represent aspects of each character. It was designed by Brent P. Newhall.
The game must be comfortably playable at Starbucks. E.g., the group should only need a small table for playing space, and not attract undue attention with distracting props.
The only physical object required to play is a set of custom cards. I may include other objects, as long as they're easily portable and would fit on a small table, but I think I can stretch those cards to do everything needed.
The game will be playable with no GM, though GM-based play will also be supported.
Gameplay will focus on court intrigue, though combat will certainly be supported.
