Judge Horrific Tone Requirements: 1 GM, 3 intense but respectful players, 1 timer, 1 hour, 13 index cards with a Tone written on each: Cold Creepy Depressing Foreboding Gory Gritty Hyperbolic Humor Morbid Raging Subtle Suppressed Suspense Strangers Carly, Tai, and Stacy are staying the night in a motel by a lake. Players, take 3 secret Tones apiece and write the name of one player (including yourself) on each. GM, frame each scene in under a minute. Be curt and obvious. Always “Yes, And”. 1 minute: Did you want to stop here? 2: Does the deer hurt you? 1: Do you successfully call the police? 3: Are you locked out? 1: Do you have a weapon? 4: Do you hurt anyone? 1: Are you calm? 5: Do you escape the motel? 1: Did you live? When time runs out: “Which of your Tones best matches Carly’s portrayal? Point to that player. Tai? Stacy? Carly, start at 3, -1 for only being pointed at 2/3 times for her portrayal, -2 for two points during others’ portrayals.” GM, give a one-liner addendum to the scene for each character. 3 critical success 1+ success -1..0 failure -6..-2 critical failure
This is a brain burner, be careful.
