Alrighty... There are some really nice options in this playset. I'm loving it already. But I gotta take a Warfare relationship with Peter so that removes one black 3 die.

Re: Stragglers table
Any of you guys have any ideas on solidifying the Warfare relationship. I want to make sure it fits with the scenario given I'm either a Necromancer or the lackey. Any ideas?
Otherwise, I'm thinking of going for an object.

Re: Stragglers table
If its a struggle we can always leave it till the end, the final die is wild (it becomes whatever number you like)

And I say you shouldn't worry about making it fit, half the fun is making it fit afterwards. Remember 'fiasco' in all things!

Oh yea! I forgot about the wild thing.

And I should have specified: making it fit meant making the most mayhem...

Re: Stragglers table
My apologies for the delay. I should have given you guys a heads up. Got swamped with work... if you thought online summer classes would be easy, like me, you are very wrong my friends.

Lemme tell you, the temptation to explore poultry porno was intense but I went with this instead...

Re: Stragglers table
Quick question though. I know the needs are tied to relationships. Are the objects and locations as well? Or do they appeal to everyone playing?

Like the animal, whatever it may be, can it come into play for any of us? Same with the temple.

The object and locations would be a bit more tied to those characters, but they can easily become part of other player's stories.

Re: Stragglers table
I just wanted to make sure. I was first introduced to the game through the youtube show tabletop. So even after I have read the manual, I still think of things as they went down in their playthrough. They took a few liberties there. But at the same time, that shows the versatility of the game.

Re: Stragglers table
I think as long as the game is fun and everyone is got a interesting plot, anything goes.

Have you read the section where they talk about how you can do different kinds of scenes, Montages, 2 parallel scenes at once, quick cuts to somewhere or sometime else during your scene, etc.

lots of interesting ways you can do the story. I read someone did the first scene with the characters stuck at the bottom of a dungeon then the rest of the game was how they ended up there.

No I didn't! Is that the second book they did? I know about the montages.
That sounds pretty damn awesome.
