I am pleased and nervous to welcome you all to join in my first open PBF playtest. Everyone's welcome to jump in! Don't worry about turn order. Download a current copy of the rules PDF here
.The Blurb:WATCH THE WORLD DIE
is a collaborative narrative game allowing any number of players to create their own custom apocalypse. There are no winners, and everybody loses. Grab 2d6 and get ready to ruin everything.The Rules:
Play will take place in this thread. We'll skip Phase 1. I'll take the first turn, so the first person to post after me will get to choose whether they want to "Make It Worse" or "Relieve It". There's no need to be invited. Just go ahead and take the next turn as instructed by the rules. Think about linking your Events and Responses to those of previous players (this is not strictly required, but it is cool).A Few Formatting Guidelines:
If you're starting a new year, underline the year in bold at the top of your post. Please show your rolls after each Event or Response, and end your post by indicating the new Pressure total.Special thanks to Paul_T, without whose gentle advice I wouldn't have had the balls to do this.
If you just want to read the apocalypse without all the out-of-game chat, I am keeping a condensed log here
