Survive unspeakable horror move
« on: November 09, 2012, 02:13:28 AM »
There's a custom move I made for a horrory dangers. It's got three variants, I actually used only the first one. Sorry about style, I'm not native speaker.
 
Survive unspeakable horror
When you survive unspeakable horror, roll +WIS. 10+, choose 3. 7-9, choose one.
* you can report clearly and in detail what happened to you
* you do not write the Bond with the horror
* you can meet the horror face-to-face
* you can sleep peacefully
 
More harsh one:
 
When you survive unspeakable horror, hold three. Spend your hold one-to-one to:
* report clearly and in detail what happened to you
* meet the horror face-to-face
* get a night of peaceful sleep
* pretend that this whole thing never happened
 
And more gentle one:

When you survive unspeakable horror, roll +WIS. 10+, choose 3. 7-9, choose one.
You're not Defying Danger when:
* you report clearly and in detail what happened to you
* you meet the horror face-to-face
* you get a night of peaceful sleep
* you pretend that this whole thing never happened

Regarding the first move: why wouldn't you want to write a Bond with the horror? "The lurking terror of the hills must be destroyed" sounds awesome and could be a source of adventure (not to mention xp).

Well, forcing a Bond just doesn't feel right to me.

Sure, of course. But in your move, it's written as a bad thing: "you don't write a Bond with the horror." I think you should change it to "you may right a Bond," because only good can come from a new Bond.

You've got a point. But it's kinda harsh for 7-9 result. You get to write a Bond, but you're in a lot of troubles. Better if you get to write a Bond no matter what, like that:

When you survive unspeakable horror, roll +WIS. 10+, all three. 7-9, choose one.
* you can report clearly and in detail what happened to you
* you can meet the horror face-to-face
* you can sleep peacefully
Also you may write a Bond with it.

Yeah, that's exactly what I had in mind. That's cool.
