CityQuest OOC

    Voting and OOC shenanigans here to avoid cluttering the main thread.

    So this is a chan-style Forum Quest.
    For those unfamiliar with the format, one person (that'd be me) is acting as a sort of Gamemaster/Narrator for the events of the story. You, the audience, get to collectively steer the actions of our hapless, helpless protagonist through the world by the long and respected tradition of raising hands.
    I'll provide options to choose from in each post, but suggestions are welcome, particularly if you can think of something that I've forgotten as an option or a more interesting approach to a problem.
    At the end of an arbitrary period, suggestion or option with the most votes is selected as the next choice that moves the story forward.

    All of that voting should go on here, rather than in the story thread which I'd like to reserve for the actual story/game. It's tidier like that.

    N.B. Some of these forum quests use hacks or watered down versions of Tabletop mechanics. This one certainly is going to do that, but it's mostly in a behind the scenes sense, just to help avoid potential pitfalls of the protagonist always winning when it counts. For those interested, things will loosely be informed by FATE Accelerated Edition. If people want more concrete/in the foreground mechanics, we can do that but otherwise it'll mostly be a set of guidelines for me to work by, rather than the underlying framework of the universe.

    • Three votes for Reading
    • Two for Skulking
    • One for Ruling.
    Those who have enjoyed other options, don't fret. You'll be seeing some of these other characters, they just won't be our viewpoint/player character.
