Hi Joshua,

It sounds like you're saying that a Protagonist _can_ be placed on a Shock that the player of that Protagonist occupies.

It also sounds like you're saying that the same Protagonist should _not_ be placed on an Issue that the player occupies.

Are both these correct?

I give up. Joshua, what you wrote as "I'm saying" "You're saying" are also incomprehensible to me. We need a translator or to be speaking in person, or something.

Best, Ron

Alan, that's correct.

Ron, fex nernum hobot pernanki hooho. Also, secondarily, lemme try again:

Procedurally, the key mechanics/rules impact of owning a Shock is that you should not play a Protagonist at a juncture with that particular Shock. (yes, there are some exceptions, if you really want to play a Protagonist and such a cell is the only one left, but again, my recommendation is simply not to permit it).

One such exception is common: when there is only one Shock and everyone is playing a Protagonist. It doesn't cause a problem because changing the Shock provides color and context, not a moral moving target like changing an Issue does.

the glyphpress's games are Shock: Social Science Fiction and Under the Bed.

I design books like Dogs in the Vineyard and The Mountain Witch.
