Ah, the Esoteric Order drinking game. What are your top picks?David S. - "Indeed." (You mentioned that Larkins did this, but I associate it with Schimpf.)David L. - "And in due time." This was often repeated particularly during Pendragon.Desiree - "*laugh* Nnno!"Honorable mentions and pet peeves:- Early on Jade would stuff food in her mouth anytime she was going to talk. I could picture it. Pop a crunchy something in, lean sideways with an elbow on the table and then start speaking. :D- Renea forgot how combat works. Excused for having baby brain (is that the expression? Being abscent minded during/after pregnancy. That thing.)Jen doesn't get one. Her snarky comments are always a delight. What a woman. ;)
Drink if you can't tell if Jen's horrified/astounded reaction to something is tongue-in-cheek or not :)
I don't know if it's any comfort for all the emotional intensity at the beginning this week, but I think that's connected to why this makes for such effective listening for us, your loyal fans. I mean, when Amy kills Aaron or vice versa, I will *care*...And on that subject, it was very melodramatically genre-appropriate for Amy to decide that Aaron was really to blame for Dawn's death, and not the person who, you know, *fired a Dragonfire round into an apartment without bothering about who aside from Aaron was in there.*One question:- Do you think that the "clue"* mechanic plays significantly differently because what Amy is investigating is a reality already established in Neon Masquerade and known to both GM and player, just unknown to Amy as a character?*It's a White Wolf game. Shouldn't they be called something like "Signes" or "Hinweisen"?
