Fiasco Playset: Occult Strangeness
For a long time, I’ve talked about how I’d like to make an Unknown Armies-inspired Fiasco playset. A few months back, I got started on one I didn’t finish. Leonard Balsera gave me some good notes on it, and a couple friends have contributed elements to it, but I stalled out in March and haven’t look at this since.
I figure that means I should crowdsource elements from you fine folks.
Occult Strangeness (the working title) is a mix of Unknown Armies, Hellblazer, and similar inspirations. It’ll have two modes: street-level and cosmic-level, which will mean two different Needs tables and two different Aftermath tables (and likely nothing else, other than a paragraph or two of text about that).
You can see the work-in-progress document by clicking on this Google Drive link.
(Because Google Drive was being crappy this morning, I couldn’t edit the file to say that the Needs list is currently a mix of street and cosmic, as I haven’t added to that part since Lenny told me to separate the two scales.)
Put your ideas in this post’s comments. If I get enough to roll on (including ideas that y’all spark from me as I read your comments), I’ll put up a playtest file.
- If you aren’t conversant in the source material listed above, but have a sense of “spooky occult folks,” drop ideas down. It’s on my to curate the playset, not on you to tell yourself no.
- If you have an idea but I don’t have a category for it, don’t stop yourself from suggesting it. Maybe as the categories shift around, that idea suddenly fits into a hole.
- Did you read this far? Can you contribute even one idea? If not, why do you hate freedom?
