Quote from: TonyLB on February 09, 2006, 12:34:36 PMWow ... that's a lot of rambling. I really, really, really don't have this clear enough in my head to describe it with precision. Is what I'm saying making any sense to people, or am I just babbling my own private moon-language?
QuoteStuff that goes on cards
QuoteThe person who will eventually choose between the two options being listed
QuoteThe person who holds the Misery Dice bowl
QuoteThe state of having a card in front of you, rather than in the middle (not exactly "control", not exactly "profiting from", but something between the two)
QuoteThe state of a card being in the middle, where anyone can include it as stakes
Quote from: Bryan Hansel on February 10, 2006, 03:04:53 PMWhy not just Trait Cards and Stake Cards? It's simple and describes them perfectly.
Quote from: TonyLB on February 10, 2006, 11:03:38 PMThe thing is, I can't figure out (outside of the obvious one-on-one confrontations) how to distribute those cards. If four people are all fiddling around, adding and removing stakes on the decision, how do you know which of the three non-choosers gets a given card?
QuotePreston wants to keep Becky safe. Becky wants to get close to Preston. Victor wants to find Preston's weak spot, and use it to destroy him.Becky asks Preston whether he loves her. She puts "Preston/Becky relationship" on one side of the stakes. Victor is watching in secret. If Preston admits his love for Becky, Victor will know that she's his weak spot. Victor puts "Becky's safety" on the other side of the stakes.Suppose Preston denies his love for Becky. The relationship is back in Becky's court. Victor has no motive to be involved, and really isn't thematically tied to the issue of Becky's anger and rejection. The card has to go to Becky's player.Suppose Preston confesses his love for Becky. Becky's safety is now a tool that Victor can use against Preston. The card clearly has to go to Victor.

Quote from: Joshua BishopRoby on February 11, 2006, 02:55:18 PMAdditionally, is there any narration that gets paired with the die-rolling that determines what's at stake?
