Quote from: MegueyOk, the game is great, and I'm thrilled to be playing with Carrie & everyone else. But especially Carrie, since she's been a huge 'potential gamer' in my head for a year.
QuoteI love the fan-mail economy, because it really rewards good play, good ideas, and nurtures good agreement between players, and that's cool. The scene-setting was great for me, because I often feel a bit like I'm in a black-box stage when playing, because the setting has not been set.
QuoteI got very little screen-time, but felt like I had pivitally important sceens.
QuoteI even got fan-mail for my timing on saying "Then who's blood is it?"
QuoteI do have to respond to Joshua though: QuoteHow's about this: with three Protagonists being played by women and one by a man, the three women all see the available powerful roles (given the 1940s environment) as being in the hands of men. I wanted to play Vicky because she's a journalistic Rosie the Riveter and First-Wave Feminist. Um, I looked for what character I wanted to play, and then what gender it was. I wanted to play someone that would be tied into the political situation at the time, to increase the feeling of setting, and being a part of 'the good war' seemed perfect. Yet I wanted to be around, so I couldn't be on active duty. Being injured in duty and ok with that seemed especially cool, and when I put all the pieces together, that character was male.

QuoteAnother strong possibility for me was the Black woman blues/torch singer, with interesting connections that would have included some clan stuff and some early civil rights stuff. But that's a different show;
QuoteNoone's playing a closeted homosexual (that we know of) or a political activist or a migrant farm worker, either.
QuoteAnd J, that photo's not exactly a candidate for reduction surgery.
QuoteRemember the clothes of the era, the tailoring, and the way underwear was built, and rethink that angle. Or, just be really clear that Vickie being really painfully chesty is part of the character, and not just a stereotype you're falling into.
Quote from: lumpleyQuoteB) when is the right moment in the scene to call for a conflict. B is the thing that takes me a couple episodes to feel solid about. It's different with every group.Yes! Several times I had to stop myself from rolling like you would in Dogs - the very instant that something might even possibly be at stake. I was like, "okay, let's roll dice! Yet there's not enough information yet! Vincent to brain. Brain? Come in brain..."My players willing, I think we'll try d6s next time. We'll still do odds-evens but we can just look for that center pip.-Vincent
