Highlighting Stats
« on: March 12, 2012, 07:51:22 PM »
In a recent session through various machinations every character had Hard highlighted. The resulting session was a total bloodbath. I'm wondering if anyone else has experimented with using different highlighted stats to set a theme for a given session, especially as the MC.
For example, we're starting a new game soon, and I'm considering highlighting Sharp for all the characters. This would encourage them to examine situations and ask questions which would be nice for the establishing feel of a first session.
Have any other MCs played with with?

I'll use it to hopefully "nudge" the game in a certain direction. If I want that session to be Weird, I'll highlight everyone's Weird. If I want everyone to spend more time talking to each other and looking around, I'll highlight everyone's Sharp. And If I feel like watching a bloodbath, i'll highlight everyone's Hard.

And, as MC, if I want all the PC directly interacting... I highlight Hx!

Works like a charm!
