We decided to try The Fast, the Furious, and the Feminist.
We decided to use the Ryan Macklin cards to fill in the blank spots.
Our story is called Deathrace against the Patriarchy
The year is the futuristic year of 1955
Our heroes are:
Cassie F.: Secretly, her f is short for frankeinstein and is unwilling to confirm whether it was the doctor or the monster. She has monster hunters after her.
Her customized weapon is a black and red rhinestone tommy gun.
Her car is the Down Deb a stripped down Jallopy.
Flashbacks: When she's being chased, she gets flashbacks. They are always in black and white and not always within her lifetime.
Jeannie: She's an older gal whose rumored to have been run out of hollywood after slugging the director.
She racing against the Patriarchy.
Catch phrase " are you ready for your close up <pow!>.
Quirks: always rolls for feels
Customized weapon: no one is sure, but it's under the dashboard. She keeps saying "nobody has seen it."
Her car is the Purring P a teal cadillac
She may have had a kid out of wedlock (oh nose!)
Location: The mean streets of Milkwalkie
Gang name: C-GEE (because they cannot decide on anything else)
"while you were casing silverback road for the next race, you saw the canadian motorpiggers also casing it.
Cassie f rolled the following
Jeannie rolled the following
based on the backstory card, cassie (too slow) was politely pulled over by the canadian motorpiggers that was tense (Jeannie was grabbing her weapon from underneth the
dashboard) until they began to talk and appeared friendly (especially after Jeannie turned on the deep, confident, sexy, voice). After a polite conversation, we made nice
on both scouting out the road and giving the canadian motorpiggers kudos that can be cashed in at a later time.
"you and PC were travelling to the "soda shop" when they encountered hostility from FBI.
As they pull up to the race, they realize they are being tailed. Purring P floored it, but the Down Deb took longer to rev. It becomes a drag race, but they start racing each
The race disappears from both of their minds as a flashback occurs.
Jeannie's flashback is to the orphanage where she had to give away her child out of WEDLOCK! to a man in black. Her lip quivered, but she dealt with it like a woman.
Cassie also has a flashback at the same time. It appeared as a turn of the century film reil of a Baveran castle. She is in a tower with steps being heard coming to the door.
She avoids causing a crash as she jolted herself back into reality before the door opens.
It was at this point, we decided that all dice would be rolled and had no clue how to health and didn't care.
Cassie and Jeannie leave the Gmen in the dust, but tempers flare as they continue to race. As Jeannie pulls ahead, her flashbacks kicks her fury into high gear. Jeannie sees a guy and a girl on the road driving ahead and she cuts them off, where the couple is forced to stop.
Cassie pulls herself together, despite lagging behind. She's been here before as her flashback also happens in black and white, but instead it was 2 decades ago before she was born? The rotary car phone goes off. Cassie pulls over and picks up the phone. It is a manly voice on the back saying "they passed the test."
It honestly felt like a great way to setup a plot and less of an actual game, but we might have been doing it wrong.
We had no idea how to track damage, or use difficulty for enemies.
We had no idea of equivelent of Radiance
Still it was a blast (but that might have been our insanity).
BTW this is a lot more fun if you yell out "flashback" when you roll the die. :D
