Quote from: Ron Edwards on November 28, 2005, 04:29:01 PMIt also so happens that the actual breakup is not explicitly played; it happens between the During and After chapters, but isn't shown.
QuoteWell, the couple has broken up. Or at least that's what they tell themselves and everyone else. The actual breakup is not depicted during play. This chapter is about the aftermath. The proposed situations are all instances of unavoidable further contact, in which the two people must deal with one another face to face.
QuoteAll things do come to an end, though. Barb and Jake have broken up and made a big deal about it to all their family and friends. People still think of them as a couple, though, and they do live in the same city and share many of the same habits. Unplanned and unwanted meetings are far too likely.Do not narrate the actual breakup. See the title of the game. That's all Barb and Jake are ever going to say about it.
