Dead Weight Working Docs

Here's the Google doc where I'm writing the game:

I'll post links to character sheets and other game materials when they're ready.

In longer play do you imagine there are other towers? I guess it strikes me as very much like 28 Days Later.

And I was going to ask a question about the coins but I think I get this now. I get one quad free, the other three quads take one type of coin each, and I can stack up to three of the same type and have "stacks" as a quality.

So, I have to balance how many different types of thing I stick in my bag (and decide what penalty to my mobility that I want to live with), and try and get stackable coins of the same type.

I can see the MC offering me quarters when I want pennies and dimes.

Yes, yes, and yes.

You are totally on the Dead Weight wavelength, Gregor.

I just want to say, that bit about writing down and crossing out injuries that then become scars? Awesome.

There might be another kind of punk, who writes really big to minimize the number of scars. Still, a punk thing to do.

Friggin' punks, man. They're everywhere.

Glad you're diggin' the scars thing, Meg.

I feel oddy compelled to shout "Yay punks!", but that's clearly just a Rocky Horror relic.

I went and registered just so I could ask about the relative sizes of American coinage (I'm Australian), and only NOW realize I can just google...

Awesome hack, by the by.

This one looks like it would be loads of fun to run. I'm anxiously awaiting my chance!

Just finished reading this.  Great stuff.  This would be a really fun game.

I think I'm going to steal the scars idea for mine.

So...  Will there be more dead weight goodness coming?  Is this game still in development?

It's on the back-burner right now (behind The Regiment, at least).

But Daniel and I are still talking about it. There may be a 'beta' kind of thing in the near future (basically a cleaned up version of the Google doc).

I'm just going to reanimate this thread to show my love of the idea and for the sheer pun of it.
