Choose one player as the Actor. All others are Directors. The Actor takes 2d6 and begins to narrate a normal (fictional) day. As the Actor describes events, any of the Directors may interrupt by saying, “Hold” or otherwise indicating. When a hold is called, the Actor must roll. On a 7+, the Actor has privilege and may continue to narrate. The Director may assign a privileged identity to the Actor. On a 6-, the Director explains why the action was more difficult than expected and assigns a non-privileged identity to the Actor. The Actor proceeds, including any assigned identities in the narration. Try to vary holds across Physical, Mental, and Social privileges. Continue until everyone agrees that the Actor’s identity has been sufficiently defined. Rotate roles; play again. Examples of privilege (in my culture): Physical: vision hearing fully-functioning limbs absence of chronic pain/disease allergies minimal/absent access to transportation, goods, and services Mental: predictable and controllable sleep non-medicated normative mental function neurotypicality lack of addictive behaviors family/friend support network lack of external stressors Social: white heterosexual and monosexual male cisgendered appearance and binary pronoun selection socially-accepted body type normative fashion expression unaccented English as primary language Anglo-American name
