Ben, I'm composing a little options-flowchart of the Key Phrases, for a single player to refer to. I think I've got it down complete and right.

Except for one thing. Textually, da rules say, And That Was How It Happened can respond to anything except You Ask Far Too Much. Um ... is it possible to respond to It Shall Not Come to Pass with And That Was How It Happened?

I was under the impression that It Shall Not Come to Pass had to go directly to the dice, period, do not pass go. But can the other player say And That Was How It Happened instead, and simply concede, without going to the dice?

Best,
Ron

It shall not come to pass ends conflict.  Therefore, no key phrase can be used to respond to it.  Including And furthermore.

Similarly, no key phrase can be used to respond to And that was how it happened or But it was not meant to be.

So, in conclusion, And Furthermore can:

1) Begin conflict.
2) Be used to respond to the following phrases:
But only if
And furthermore

Thanks!

I'm good with all the other possibilities; your comments on And Furthermore match what I've got on the chart.

I shall now attempt to compose it electronically with my mad Draw skilz.

Best,
Ron

Would you be willing to share this diagram with the rest of the class once you have completed it?  Being very selfish, I would find such a thing quite handy.

No! I'm going to have it hand-printed on expensive paper by oppressed migrant laborers, and make you pay for it at an obscene markup!

(jeez)

Of course I'll make it available, probably by sending the file to Ben for the site, if he wants. That's why I'm bothering to make it into an electronic file in the first place.
