I am a day late. It's unclear whether I am a dollar short.
At the end of yesterday's post on GM improv, I promised an absurdly silly stunt-challenge. Here it is, I will be defying Thantos himself in a feat of derring-do. Naw, I am not going to jump Snake River Canyon, at least not today.
Here's the pitch:
I will need four volunteers from the (virtual) audience. Preferably four stalwart souls with FLAILSNAILS characters. You there, sir, with the foppish hat and black toga, you will do nicely.
Wednesday or Thursday of next week at 8:30 Central US time I will meet you in the Google Plus game arena. I will prepare no map, no encounter, no plot line, nothing. I will be meeting this challenge armed only with my home setting, the HC.
Two hours before said time—nay, a mere 20 minutes before—each volunteer will send me my clues for running the game, in order:
- An adventure hook.
- A second adventure hook.
- Three locales (building, cave, ship, what have you) where said hooks can play out.
- A mac-guffin.
A show of hands from the volunteers.
