Author Topic: 2P PTA?  (Read 1404 times)
« on: July 07, 2009, 02:28:38 PM »

Hi, I'm a newbie to PTA.  I've read through the rules & am looking forward to playing, hoping to get a 4-player session in in a few weeks.  In the mean time, I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for running a 2-player session/series? This would be myself & my spouse.  It seems like it could get a little one-sided with only 2 players, my idea is to possible switch roles as producer for each episode or possibly even a scene by scene basis?  Any ideas or suggestions?

I'd go with a strong Producer and 3-4 well-defined NPCs myself. The success would largely depend on the Producer being able to run something like three simultaneous plots for the same character, so that they'd have a suitable amount of variety and pacing. The series would be something with a strong lead character, probably the sort where the lead has internal monologues all the time. Dexter is sort of like this, it really only has one lead.

Still, more players would be considerably easier for this game.
