So I'm MCing a Monsterhearts
one-shot this coming Sunday (Saturday, for you people in the Western Hemisphere), and am sweating bullets. Some of it is the usual pre-game MC jitters that I get before every session regardless of what I'm running. The rest of it is specific to this particular game though, as it's essentially a con-game being run over Skype with people I've only interacted with via another gaming forum. I'm extremely nervous that I'll screw something up and run a horrible session, turning them all off to Monsterhearts (it's the first time for all of them, [insert virgin jokes here]).
For my prep I've got a list of 40 random student names, provocative questions to ask (thanks to this fantastic thread
), and a massive, boner-popping crush on this game. I realize that's all you really need, as the players will (hopefully) generate lots of hooks and strings for me to yank with those questions. But I'm wondering if people would be kind enough to share some of the interesting situations they've encounter in a game of Monsterhearts
(either as a player or as an MC). Something like:
The douche bag popular kid, [name], is sitting on a brand new motorcycle in the front parking lot of the school. He's hitting on all the hot girls as they come out of the building after school. What's going to happen when he hits on [PC's girlfriend/crush/best friend/etc.]?
I thought of that one while walking past the local high school yesterday and seeing almost exactly that very situation. So does anyone what to share a situation and help me out?
