QuoteTom would be at her mercy, wouldn't he? If someone else (Ashley, for instance) described Ranma ending up in a frilly pink dress, it would be Julie who decided whether or not to veto that. Ryoga's a decent guy though, right? He wouldn't ... Julie wouldn't allow such a thing. Right? Right?
Quote from: Joshua BishopRoby on February 24, 2006, 02:04:34 PMOh hey, maybe exercising the ability listed on the card nets you dice or whatever. Cause how much would it suck if a character had a trait that never came up in play? Get the player to display Ranma's genderbending in a 'safe' situation (like eating ice cream) by rewarding them for it, and get the other players to display the same in a complicated situation (when the grandparents visit) by rewarding them in the exact same way.
Quote from: TonyLB on February 24, 2006, 03:38:16 PMNow what if your reward/cost, when you use an ability, is that you put a die on the card? A GM die if you used the card to succeed at something (Ranma becomes a girl to eat ice cream) and a player die if you used the card to introduce a complication to your life (clueless Kuno wants to have a duel with boy-type Ranma, and insists that girl-type Ranma watch and cheer ... complicated!)

Quote from: Clyde L. Rhoer on February 24, 2006, 06:14:00 PMMy first question is, can you only place the dice on the card while it is down on the table? Why are the dice ephermal instead of the cards? How many cards are there? One card per player? Can there be less than one per player?
QuoteI had a thought, or a dream, or whatever during the night. It gave me another reason for pushing for "Veto" abilities in some sense or another: they help structure a story. This is sort of an expansion on what I wrote here about running structured/plotted stories in Capes
