Quote from: Ron EdwardsCharacters (in respective order of the three players listed above): a depraved male samurai who eats his victims' hearts and still nurses at his mother's breasts; a depraved female samurai heavily in S&M, as well as whatever you call wanting to kill your partners during sex; a slothful male ronin who kills, steals, and manipulates because it's the easiest way to be comfortable, yet idealizes his friendship with a woman he's never met.Events during play ... oh man, I'm not even sure I want to go into this ... suffice to say, the challenge was to create dramatic interconnecting stories using templates including sexual torture, broken hearts, corporate intrigue, and capitalist demons from hell, and I think we achieved this to a large extent. I suppose that in keeping with the topics of the above threads, I might as well disclose.Kyber's character ended up naked and dead, straddling (still inserted) the also-naked and equally-dead body of her mortal enemy in a pedophile-prostitute house; she was slain by a poisoned French tickler, and he was killed by her with a broken-ended glass rod, through the eye, as her final act. My character ended up embracing his sex-slave as the only person who'd never betrayed him, and killing both her and himself on his own sword, pinning them together, with his valet decapitating him as the seppuku clincher.
Quote from: Sifolisreveng? o god yes....the reveng factor is backed up both in rules and in the player's mind from get-go....how many times have i held grudges agaisnt a characture that killed my last guy i was playing? only to come in with a pre-determination to kill that rat-asshole with my next FCO i bring into play...y'see, the game has an indepth rule system that actually allows OOC knowledge, yes yes, you actually ALLOWED to benefit from such info that you shouldnt know....there are rules that limit what kind of OOC knowledge your allowed to use, and what kind you cant...but if im pissed cus you killed my last guy, bet your ass i may hold a grudge and kill you with my next guy....this is condisered "cheesy" or "metagaming" in more civil games..but in BB, thats just par for the course and players are not to be punished for such actions.
Quotebut as you said, that can be seen as just "in house" ways we play, and other players may play peacfully if not from our group....
Quotethere ARE rules on making a player a ledgend actually...and yes, players who die the worst of deaths are often saluted for all games to come....and yes we all have had brutal deaths that are still talked about today, years after it went down.
Quotethe whole "my arm got cut off, dont get blood on the access panle" thing you said, was so much like what actually goes on in BB that i felt you must have played....
