Interview with a drunk GM

Post  SosieTerrehaute on Sat Dec 29, 2012 12:57 pm

ME: What ever happened in Madrid?
MATT: Everyone died. Full scale war.
ME: What, why?
MATT: All the civilians tried to hide, but it turns out you can't hide from EI Nukes.
ME: Why did the Nu--
MATT: Collateral damage.
ME: ..Oh. Wow. Everyone died.
MATT: YEP. AS far as the Nuke's were concerned, they were fighting the spire itself.
ME: Which they were.
MATT: Yep. And the only other people who went in there were after them were Malenbrach. It wasn't looking good for them.
ME: Man, it seems like every time we as players have a chance to intervene, and then don't, the thing the UIG does to 'fix it'--
MATT: Is much worse than anything you could have done? YUP.
ME: Is that so we actually intervene?
MATT: YUP.
ME: And we never do?
MATT: YUP.

Remember, everyone, you can lead a player to water but you can't get them to investigate all the dead horses. Or swim.

MATT: It's not that people don't investigate, it's that they do it as a side action.. or even spend a full action, and look at it and go.. Yep, that's happening. Sometimes, you just need to go get a bunch of guys from Oracle together and break into a place and figure out what's going on. Since it'll be worth A LOT OF MONEY*. But they'll go, "It's a super high security spire, how do we do it?" And the answer is, You're in fucking Oracle, do your goddamn job.





* Added in this is also: Save a lot of lives, though Matt didn't explicitly say it, since Keelung/Taiwan, Madrid, etc.

MATT *increasingly drunk*: SERIOUSLY, grow a pair and BUST IN THE JOINT. What, do you think I am gonna kill you all in the first ten minutes? Come on.
ME: Would you?
MATT: No. Of course not. That wouldn't be fun at all. I'm just the GM. I don't have any power.
ME: So would you wait to the end of the session?
MATT: Nah, probably mid-way, when the layers of gradual stupidity people have been building get to a point where I can no longer ignore them.

This conversation happened like.. a week ago.

ME: Oh my GOD.

ME: 'Johnny makes love to a dummy; says 'Ain't it good to be alive'.' ...That guy they blackmailed with the meat dolls. Makes love to a dummy. JONATHAN GEIGER. Oh my god we blackmailed one of the Future Boys. Accidentally. Ahahahaha.
MATT: *very very faint smile*
ME: I'm right, aren't I? Wow. That is some planning. I knew I knew his name from somewhere on the meatdoll mission.
MATT: *whispering* The game is a delicate and elaborate tapestry of plot.. ..that no one cares about.
