A friend was having birthday drinks on Saturday, and mentioned in the round-robin e-mail that someone might be bringing Microscope. Fantastic! I thought, I'd be happy to play it. But then my mind started to wander... and I came up with a hack called Stethoscope. Well, not really a hack, just a tweaking of the name. Anybody got any other similar ideas? Here's my pitch for Stethoscope:
A collaborative story game where characters develop the power to see into the people around them’s innermost thoughts, the pulsating dark heart of the city. But can they convince other people to help them intervene to nip evil and wickedness in the bud, or are they doomed to watch helplessly as apparently decent and honourable individuals carry out their dastardly schemes and machinations…?
