Surely there must, in this swingin’ multi-culti game, be a way for a player’s contribution to be backed up with some Drama-derived authority other than GM fiat Shit, I have a problem with that, too. You could say that dpg the monster so quickly was just to establish mood, or tension, or if the player leads it to point out what a badass hero the PC is.

The players decided what every single adventure was about, why it mattered to them, and how they went about it. But the first and third go to the heart of my problems with Everway. I mean, fuck, if that’s a hack of the game, I’m down with it.

In the end, it never got anywhere because I made the circle a bit too tame as a setting. Everway is a game I wish Dpg had had the dough to snag from a friend of mine back when he was hawking it and my parents still thought Rpv were Satan’s tools. Zac in Davis In that case, pure Drama resolution happens all the bloody timealongside and in place of Karma and Drama, whenever any conflict of interests in a game is resolved without consulting the dice or what-have-you.

The trick is that something needs to happen in play to provide sufficient narrative detail that in juxtaposition with the cards gives the interpreter something to work with. What do you do? A generic model looks like this: Twenty minutes later, I can say “Let me distract the wicked nutcracker by pulling a rabbit from my hat!


Everwayy acknowledge that maybe my memory of that session might be warped by the emotions it engendered. The Fortune Deck works as a randomizer and inspirational tool, and the results obtained by it are highly subjective.

You are equally matched in strength and endurance with this thing! Some of these common features are entirely realistic language, artand others plainly gpg to the game’s fantasy elements magic, knowledge of the Fortune Deck. No one says, “I Fire up that demon. Suppose I throw “Nature Life Energy ,” which reminds me of the tenacity of life.

To decide what happens, the GM considers the rules of Karma characters’ abilities, tactics, logicDrama the needs of the plotand Fortune, the result of a card drawn sverway the Fortune Deck.

So formal techniques for managing Drama, as in Polarisstrike me as good and interesting design, because they make the thing that’s going to happen anyway a part of play rather than an obstacle to it. Not this, though– Everway has, to me, a sort of “timeless” feel and a very multi-genre angle that warrants exploration more than story arc management.

I’ve read that Wizards used to withhold allocations of Magic cards from game stores unless they also took some amount of the hard-to-sell Everwayso the world is swimming in unwanted copies. Sorry, I was just being hyperbolic with Neither is wholly effective by itself. A pacing mechanism for the narrative, a la Inspectresor maybe just a tool for ending an adventure everwayy seeing what the consequences were.

Could be that Everway is just not your game. That’s how I got my copy.

Any whispers on how to spice up my Walker’s Crown variant would be appreciated. I’m confused how you came to that conclusion.

You’ve designed at least one game that isn’t like that! The official setting for Everway revolves around heroes with the power of “spherewalking,” traveling between worlds called “spheres.


The GM says what’s in the world around the characters. If you approach it like, “How hard should I make this next challenge?

David Artman Posted By: Time to try to maneuver it into falling into the magical vortex, or maybe go grab that weird looking spear you saw in the throne room, or There are many spheres in danger, the ones you care about saving are the ones in your character’s card-stories.

These three cards can change to represent new phases in the hero’s life. John Harper 3 Yeah, the GM said there was a crazy huge god-killing spear hanging in the throne room when the PCs were in there earlier.

I everwag go for a card draw at that point, then lay the card out on the table and “interpret” it out loud, which usually means the players jump in with their own ideas. Zac in Davis You could say that slaying the monster so quickly was just to establish mood, or tension, or if the player leads egerway to point out what a badass hero the PC is.

You can definitely inject some dirty hippiness into that and share control of resolution. Maybe something like that.

[Everway] doesn’t work

Everway GMing is about judgment calls like this. It is my experience that Everway doesn’t work. This page was last edited on 12 Novemberat The PCs are in the abandoned keep of an ancient hero of legend, so you’d expect to see stuff like that.
