|XXXXtreme STREET LUGE
||[Mar. 13th, 2008|08:36 am]
A role-playing game
Your character is an extreme street luger. He vaguely resembles vin diesel. Pick three characteristics (build, coloring, haircut, attitude, eyes, hands, voice) in which your character resembles Vin Diesel. In all other ways, he does not resemble Vin Diesel at all. Pick which ones apply.
Your character has the following attributes, measured 1-8
These correspond to the Vin Diesel comparisons. For anything that you have in common with Vin Diesel, go ahead and give yourself an 8. For anything else, roll 1d6.
Note: If you are Vin Diesel, go ahead and take an 8 in everything.
Also, seriously, Pitch Black was *so* much better than Riddick. e-mail me and tell me what the hell happened.
Oh, you have one other stat:
I am famous to this many people:
It starts at 1. It can get as high as 14
The first one is your mother.
The game has two parts. Luges and Ordinary Life
You don't actually play a race. You just play the aftermath of a race, where you all review what happened over cheap beer at a someone's house. The person whose house it is is who-ever won the race. Who won the race?
Who won? Everyone draw a number of cards equal to their fame, or two and take the worst if they have no fame. Highest card won the race. That person gets one prestige! About which more later. If more than one person has highest, it was a photo finish and you're arguing about it. No one gets the prestige.
So, each person gets to ask each other person a question. Which is basically about how they dealt with some tricky obstacle of the course, or about how they wiped out some time, or whatever. Basically about something that they did on the course. This requires then to use one of their attributes to answer. So you're like "oh, it totally reminded me of the time when ..." that's history. Etc. Each questioner determines what attribute you use to answer, but you can choose to force an answer with another attribute, in which case you take a penalty.
Then you see how your answer is received. If you used the questioner's suggested attribute, draw a card. If you used your own, draw two cards and take the highest.
Compare the card to your attribute. If it is equal or lower, you gain one prestige. If it is a joker, you did really well but you screw up your story. Lose one prestige but gain one in any attribute below 7. If all your attributes are above seven (like, if you're Vin Diesel), you just screw up.
Shoot the shit until everyone has asked someone else one question eace. You cannot answer a question with the same attribute twice, so if someone asks you an attribute you've already used you can use any attribute you haven't with no penalty.
Then you try to convert your prestige into fame. Draw cards, one at a time, for each point of prestige. Is it higher than your present fame? If so, add one to fame. If not, discard it. When you've finished this your prestige goes to zero.
Then you have to deal with daily life. You have three things you want. These can be things like:
1) Get into community college.
2) Ask the hot girl at the club on a date.
3) Move out of my mom's basement.
Have a scene where you try to do one of your things. Draw three cards and compare to an appropriate attribute. If all of them are lower, you succeed!
If you are the most famous street luger, you may use your fame instead of an attribute. If there's a tie, no one can. This means that you are trying to get the people who think your famous to deal with your shit for you.
If you accomplish all three of your things, you win! You're happy.
You can also decide to drop out of street luging. In this case, you don't get to hang out with the guys anymore. Each time you miss a race, your fame drops by one. If your fame reaches zero, another attribute drops by one. However, when you do other things, you only draw one card to compare to your attribute, rather than three.
