Your characters are on the USS Impetuous. It uses a Schroedinger Engine (the crew looks outside from time to time and asks “are we there yet?”; it’s theoretically faster than FTL Drive but it feels like it takes forever).
Your character can be assumed to have everything appropriate to the genre so don’t ask if your stowaway has a towel or if your Killbot has a circular saw and death lasers. Everything from the Galactic United Earth Explorers (pronounced Gooey) is McGuffin™ brand.
The captain is taking a nap. The first officer and all the senior staff are playing bingo. You can’t disturb them because That Would Be Bad.
The ship is getting hot. You should probably do something about that.
Note: I tried to make it shorter. This is the shorter. New players can join at any time. Anyone not currently playing is considered “napping.” Play will start once a few people have joined. Play will end in about a week.
Hi. I’ll be your Facilitator. The game of Impudence is designed to be a rules-light, forum playable, comedy RPG. The cornerstone of Impudence is the idea that letting your character do whatever you want—as long as the dice favor you—is more important (or funnier anyway) than sticking to a set plot.
Declare your character’s name and anything else you like. Your Facilitator will roll to generate your rank, species, and family history.
You get one die per factor your Facilitator deems relevant.
The score calculation is: add up the total number of points rolled and divide by the total number of die rolled. Round down. Example: R1=2, R2=3; 2+3=5; 5/2=2.5; 2.5 rounded down = 2.
Anything higher than 3 is a success.
Action Points are awarded by the Facilitator after you do or try something hilarious. If you choose to spend an Action Point, it will be added after the roll average is calculated.
Your facilitator may award AP as early as your Character Creation if something you chose, when combined with the roll for generation, was hilarious.
###Rolls for BBS###
In the interests of preventing a bunch of overhead or external sign ups for something new, you will state your three choices (from Alpha, Beta, Charlie, Delta, and Foxtrot) and your Facilitator will tell you what the scores were (and calculate success/failure).
##Order of Play##
First post, first played. Turns take however long they take.
Roleplay the results of your last roll, ask the Computer or colleagues any questions you have, and (if you have an action you’d like to play) declare which three die (Alpha, Beta, Charlie, Delta, Echo, Foxtrot) you’d like to play.
