Title: Bullet point reminders - Producer - Conflict
Post by: stefoid on January 21, 2010, 03:03:45 PM
Hi, Im going to create two or three threads, one for each type of list that I have in mind.  The purpose is to collaboratively come up with a list of maybe 6 or 8 one sentence bullet points that players and/or producer can refer to, when they are learning the game.  These points are not about the rules of the game as such, but the skills that need to be learned to play good, fun games of PTA.  i.e. if the list was about tennis, one such point might be  -" keep your eye on the ball".

If nothing is happening, inject a Focus+Agenda related Bang into the scene to generate conflict.

Monitor PC actions for potential to be tripped-up by their issue

A Bang is most likely to be a Dispute - Someone whose goals are opposed to, or interfere with the PCs goals.
