I guess I’m accustomed to thinking of resolution in terms of breaking or setting aside the flow of narrative, however briefly, to consult some kind of mechanic that differs from the flow of narrative.

Like the title says: It’s not mine, that’s for sure – seems like the game isn’t really anything but a vehicle for the GM to push his creativity at an audience, which is, as Jonathan or some other hipster out there said, so nineties.

You are equally matched in strength and endurance with this thing! If you try to match it blow for blow, you may manage to kill it, but you’ll be exhausted and easy prey for the next such mindless monstrosity to come along. Not this, though– Everway has, to me, a sort of “timeless” feel and a very multi-genre angle that warrants exploration more than story arc management.

I fight a monster. As a general rule a statistic of N is twice as capable as a level of N-1, where this makes sense. Black demon blood flies everywhere and the creature howls in pain. You’ve cut its goddamn head off! Articles needing additional references from November All articles needing additional references.


Understand that I am totally in love with the Fortune resolution mechanic, which almost-but-not-quite works and is at any rate beautiful and cool. The element numbers aren’t monster stat blocks that you play War with. Edited to add the more constructive response: In fact, the proprietor might let you go down there and take one if you are brave enough to descend in the Caverns of Madness, and clever enough to find it.

Its scream echoes for what seems like half an hour as it falls!

[Everway] doesn’t work

Wouldn’t be much to playing the game if you didn’t make any choices now and then, would there? Like I said in my other post, the game play is about actions and consequences in the present moment of the fiction.

We’re gonna go save them.

It’s clutching its face and sort of half crawling around on the floor, blood everywhere. Colin, what didn’t work for you? Y’all get to everwag me how it’s set up and I have no say; the rules tell us y’all are right. Is the PC just trying to hurt the demon? While you’re at it, you can grab a few boosters of Fallen Empires and a case of Rage.

Its lead designer was Jonathan Tweet. At chargen, I asserted a few facts about my investigator into the fiction “SIZ 18”.

December edited December Marketed as a “Visionary Roleplaying Game”, it has often been characterized as an innovative piece with a limited commercial success. Or maybe the player just evewray up with some crazy awesome move that no one knows how to deal with. Everway is a game I wish I had had the dough to snag from a friend of mine back when he was hawking it and my parents still thought RPGs were Satan’s tools.


Some of these common features are entirely realistic language, artand others plainly related to the game’s fantasy elements magic, knowledge of the Fortune Deck. I can only speak for what happened when I played, although I don’t imagine my experience was unique.

It depends on everwxy you want to do. Polaris isn’t that way, Puppetland isn’t that way. That said, the GM advice in Everway already seems to regard them as integrated, in that everything is GM fiat Drama until the GM doesn’t know what the hell is going to happen next, at which point players start describing what they’re doing and the GM compares the relevant character stats Karma to determine what the likely outcome is, throwing a card and reading it Fortune to confirm or deny that judgment as desired.

If one were evetway to macro-analyse all instances of RPG play since everaay beginning of the hobby, I’d bet that Drama is used way more than the other two, probably put together. Works fine for me.

The use of cards with free interpretation as a basis for character generation is pretty cool and functional. John Harper 4 If you don’t agree about the interpretation of a card, you discuss it like adults. Suppose I throw “Nature Life Energy ,” which reminds me of the tenacity of life.

Also a good idea Our characters go into action and someone the GM by default here makes a judgment.
