Quote from: Arturo G. on August 05, 2006, 09:34:54 PMThe interactions between the child and the minions should be surely weird! Was he using his position to control the minions? Or was it a more complicate and nasty relationship? Please, tell us how it went.Arturo

QuoteVarious conflicts occur at each person's turn, with overtures far surpassing actual errands for the master in number. (Which leads me to a question: can the minions have more than one overture in a row?)
QuoteThe minion acted mostly like I imagine a beast aspected minion is supposed to, mostly with appeals to raw physical sensation and debasement. He would on occasion manipulate the emotions of the minions, but this only by using body language and physical contact which accented his childish "vulnerability."
QuoteOften I had him take the Intimacy die right off the bat, with physical measures intended to evoke a parent-like bond, like soft touches and the use of child-like "cuteness" being the norm. Finally, temper tantrums of the kicking-screaming variety, along with insults levelled at the minion occurred once or twice to try to startle the minions into acceptance.
QuoteThe way I played it, the master is always attacking the minion's self-worth. Any contributions that are made are not good enough; .... .... The feeling that I tried to the players is that nothing the minions do is worthwhile to anyone.
QuoteThe players cleverly found loopholes which permitted them to avoid violence; the mutilated carpenter had his ears stitched shut instead of removed, and he was sold to a freakshow instead of killed.
