Run for a friend. Don't tell them how it works. Put eleven six-siders in front of them (five red, six blue). They invent a character. Real-world setting. SCENE: A child in their family home, in trouble for something. Play the scene. Learn about them. If they're a white kid, remove one of their red dice. Otherwise, take a blue. If they were born male, take a red. Otherwise blue. If their family is wealthy, take a red. Otherwise blue. SCENE: They're a young adult, discovering their sexuality and gender identity. Someone's teasing them. Play the scene. If they're straight, remove a red die. Otherwise a blue. If they're cisgender, a red. Otherwise blue. MAGIC EIGHT-BALL: They roll the six remaining dice. Tally up the blues. Re-roll sixes and add them, too. Reds count for ZERO. 1-5: The world treats you like shit (poverty, crime, untreated depression) 6-11: Every day's a struggle (don't get sick) 12-21: You do okay, but keep your dreams small 22-29: You're one of the lucky ones 30+: The sweat of the proletariat is at your disposal. You're golden. SCENE: Sometime later in life. Show us their destiny (if you can stomach it).
