Dragon Slayers Wiki Link

The Score (Taken from the PDF)

‘If you want to keep those hands, get them off my magic cloak.”

The bumpkins in this pissant mountain town could never have taken down that dragon. Their biggest hero hasn’t seen battle since Drozzek rode down from the Smoking Mountains three wars-to-end-all-wars ago. That old fuck they call their town wizard fried his brain with one too many “elixirs of awareness” and can’t even light a campfire with all his spells combined.

So yeah, we rode into town, a bunch of outsiders ready to solve that problem. Solve a motherfucking dragon. And no, we don’t care what they think. And yes, we’re fucking heroes. These yokels should worship at our feet. They didn’t blast those mummies to dust or make a deathtrap built with technology lost centuries ago their bitch. And they sure as hell didn’t slay that dragon.

That’s our dragon, and its gold is our gold. So unless you’re bringing us ale and whores, get the fuck out before we transform you into a turkey and serve you for dinner.

OK, first thing we will determine is the turn order. This is done by comparing the population of the towns you grew up in. We'll set the circle from that ^_^

As for me, I grew up in Long Beach, North Carolina. Even today is has a population of a little over 6000 people. ^_^

Hi all. Good stuff.

Erich: would you mind linking to the playset in the first post? For quick and easy reference (I access rpggeek from several different devices...).

I'm originally from the village Smedsby (Smith's Village), which currently boasts 8000 souls, according to Wikipedia.

It is such an unimaginative name that there exists several places with the same name in Finland.

Not a problem. In fact, the wiki that I linked to has the playset in web form for ease of use.

I'm here! Looking forward to the game! I could make a case for growing up in any of 3 different towns, but the one I most identify with is Pittsford, NY, population 29,405.

I can't wait to see how this plays out. Last time I played this, I was a zombie attached to someone's wizard as a relationship. Now that's awkward. ^_^

I think I might have the big number for town population. I grew up in San Jose, CA - about one million people.

Skimming through the playset, this looks like it's going to be an interesting ride.

Alrighty then... the table is set. I'll roll the dice for us

Black Dice 8d6 = (4 + 4 + 3 + 1 + 2 + 4 + 5 + 2) = 25
White Dice 8d6 = (4 + 4 + 2 + 5 + 6 + 4 + 1 + 4) = 30
Initial Dice Pool

1 2 2 3 4 4 4 5
1 2 4 4 4 4 5 6

Alright, we'll follow the general guidelines for Fiasco games. We'll each go around the 'table' from top to bottom and choose a die and place it somewhere between players. You do not have to only pick dice for yourselves. Feel free to place them where you want to place them. In fact, this is kind of encouragement to create as much havoc as you can in the setup ^_^

As you take dice, copy the die to the item you want to place it at and mention the result of that die. Color does not matter here, only teh number.

As an example, I am going to take a black 4 and put it as an object between Matias and Steve. since it is a 4, that means the object is some sort of magic item. it would look like this when done

Matias
R:
O: 4 Magic Item
Steve

If someone wishes to define the item, say using a six if it was available, they would do the same thing again by placing the six next to the first part and referencing the item in question.

Matias
R:
O: 4 Magic Item 6 Pocket magic doorway
Steve

Once two dice are placed for a position, either as a Relationship (R), Object (O), Need (N) or Location (L), it is considered full. When we are done, we'll have two dice in every position and have a better idea about our situation.

Of course, as we place dice, please remember to remove them from the pool. This will help us keep track of things. The final die is wild, so Wind, when it is your final placement, you get to decide it's value.

I have placed the table and dice in a quote box. feel free to quote the previous person and keep the table information. It will help keep things clean.

When we are finished, there should be one object (which I have created), 1 location and 2 needs. The same person should not be connected to both needs, so by placing the object already, then the pairings for needs will be myself and Matias, Steve and Wind. However, we don't know what those needs are yet, so have fun with those ^_^

So, to start with, I will take a 4 and place an object between Matias and Steve.

Since it's my first time playing Fiasco, I'm hoping that it's smallest city to largest so that I go last - gives me a chance to learn a bit from example.

Not sure if its in the rulebook, but could we agree that not one person is connected to two needs?

Yep. Mentioned that in my edited post. Pretty much by the way I started it, I've already set the needs positions. We just won't know what the needs are until someone puts the dice down.

And yes, wind, you will be last, so you can see how things work a little first ^_^

Have at it folks!

Wind: Just so it's clear, you choose one of the dice (color completely irrelevant at this point) and match it up to some element from the playset. There are three levels to each element: a category (Relationship, Need, Object, or Location - you don't need a die for this), a subcategory (which you choose based on the dice that came up), and an actual item from the subcategory list. Obviously we need to choose subcategories before items.

You can place your choice wherever you want - it's perfectly fine to put it between, say, Matias and I, thereby influencing our characters.

There's no rule about what order these choices have to go in - you could, for example, choose the specific Magic Item between Matias and I at this point, or you could choose a new category to plop down. The The Fiasco Companion does, however, recommend working on relationships first for new players.
