I release my little gadget called 'Grimace'.

This rogue's gallery was initially intended for sandbox games like Apocalypse World, Monster of the Week or Monsterhearts.
Games where characters are created on the go.They are supposed to feel real and authentic.
With Grimace, you can pick a random face to inspire a whole character. Or you can choose a specific face to fit a concept you already have in mind.
Grimace is of course quite functional in traditional games as well.
For example, we used it efficiently on a Song of Ice and Fire game ( without going so far as giving a face to every single bystander!)
It wouldn't be out of place in a Cthulhu or Warhammer game either.
Have a look! :D

Monster of the Week / I need to really understand how fights work :)
« on: February 04, 2013, 05:49:26 PM »
Please, help me to be a better keeper :)

Last friday, I tried my luck on Monster of the week with my fellow players.
Well, it could have been worse.

So I need to really understand how fights work .

Here's a little game for MOTW veterans :)
I'll describe one scene that happened during the game and I hope you'll try to translate it in terms of Motw basic moves.
(Actually i've got four scenes to describe, but I'll try my luck with this first one... for starter.)

Case number one :

Following a private photo shooting session with the cheerleader Anna Hoytt, the Mundane Philip Mars reach the third base and beyond on the couch. But something goes wrong.

As she rides Philip, Anna grabs his film camera and slams it on the teenager's face with a lurid roar.
Poor Philip catches the device in extremis before she strikes again.

Philipp struggles and finally throw her down the coach with a kick, tearing the broken camera away from her at the same time.
He seizes a jacket and rushes to the door , stark naked , as Anna's manicured nails misses him by inches. He slams the door and flies into the university corridors without further ado.

Obviously Anna is a minion. she's mind-controlled by some kind of demonic parasite.

Are you inspired ? I've got some more complex cases ;)

There are no stupid questions... I hope

I need some advice here.
Do you think it could work?
Playing Dungeon World with a single player in a play by post game?

Please don't throw rocks at me :D
