    Tragedy Looper #2 Tutorial Game (First Steps)

    This game will be running Script #2 in the Mastermind Rulebook, using the "First Steps" Tragedy Set. I will be the game's Mastermind. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    This Game is Officially on Hold

    Game 2
    1. @Mesk514
    2. @SuperJack
    3. @Gyrlander

    If you can no longer participate or take your turn in a reasonable amount of time, please let us know so that one of the other Protagonists can take your turn for you.

    Thematic text will appear in a blue font like this. This information is mostly intended to weave an immersive story around the actions we are taking throughout the game. I will remain purposefully vague until some fact has been undeniably confirmed, such as a character's role or a plot in play. This information is not intended to give hints or mislead you.

    Use the following information to help you figure out what's going on. Below you will find:
    • What the Characters do
    • All the Main Plots possible (reminder: only one of the three is being used)
    • All the Sub Plots possible (reminder: only one of the three is being used)
    • All the Roles that will be assigned to characters if a Main or Sub Plot is active (reminder: a person can have no role, and no more than one!)
    • The abilities of the Roles, and if Goodwill usage can be denied by the Mastermind (note when the abilities can activate as well if the Mastermind can deny the usage of a Goodwill ability!)
    • What the Incidents mean (Each has a different Culprit, which is NOT a Role!)

    Players know the following things:
    Tragedy Set: First Steps
    Number of Loops: 4
    Days per Loop: 5

    Action List

    This is a list of the actions that the Protagonists and the Mastermind use, together with some details on exactly how the actions work. Use this if some effects conflict and/or you don’t know in what order to resolve things. “Together” here means “played on the same location or character”.

    Tips and Reminders
    1. Be sure to fully discuss your options and come to a consensus with your fellow players before posting your moves.
    2. The leader should take the time to map out the known information at the start of each day. The other players should examine this information for any mistakes in logic.
    3. This first script has one plot and one subplot. Each character can have only one role but a character with a role may also be culprit in an incident.
    4. When you have decided what to play during Phase 3, please post your choice in bold and red color in the thread (like this: "[Action] on the [character/location].") Remember: Once you bold what you're doing, it cannot be undone! You can be thematic in your post, so long as it is clear what acyion you are performing and where/on whom.
    5. Only one protagonist action can be played on any one location/character. A Protagonist action can be performed on the same character/location as a Mastermind action.

    Phase 4: Resolve Actions

    The Girl Student travelled to the Shrine at the end of the school day, to visit her friend, the Shrine Maiden, who has been having trouble sleeping lately. The Doctor also visited the Shrine to see another of his patients.

    Meanwhile, the Office Worker was having a particularly stressful day. He had cost his company a major account and no matter where he went, he felt as though people were talking about his failure behind his back. Fortunantly, Gyrlander manages to calm him down and remind him that he was a valuable member of the company with a bright future ahead.

    Phase 5: Mastermind Abilities
    The Shrine Maiden has a brief consultation with the Doctor while he visits before returning to her conversation with the Girl Student. She hoped that she might feel better by the end of the day, but instead she only seems to feel worse.
    The Shrine Maiden gains +1 Paranoia.

    Phase 6: Goodwill Abilities
    You do not have enough Goodwill to use any abilities.

    Phase 7: Incidents
    Something is causing unease to spread, as you predicted.
    The Patient gains +2 Paranoia. ☹☹
    The Girl Student gains +1 Intrigue.

    Phase 8: Switch Leader
    Tomorrow's leader will be: @SuperJack

    Phase 9: Day End
    Everyone has a peaceful night's sleep.

    Re: Tragedy Looper #2 Tutorial Game (First Steps)

    Information we gained this day:

    Girl Student / Doctor / Shrine Maiden is Conspiracy Theorist. (I think it's probably Girl Student as the Mastermind used a vertical movement on her, which may be he trying to get Shrine Maiden to 2 Paranoia.

    Shrine Maiden is the culprit of Increasing Unease.
