Hellmouth High: A Fiasco Playset

As part of my resurgent efforts to get regular content on this blog, I give unto you Hellmouth High, a Buffy-inspired playset for the Fiasco roleplaying game, created by yours truly (the playset, not the game, I mean). In other words, I had this kicking around on my hard drive from ages past and figured I might as well make some use of it. The game Fiasco has been mentioned before here when Wil Wheaton and friends did their awesome actual-play video. You can also clicky on the image below to view the pdf.

Thanks to the folks at Bully Pulpit Games for providing the template for creating this. Also, stay posted for my review of their newest game, Durance, whenever I can spare the time.

Edit: The playset has been updated to include a Creative Commons BY-NC-SA 2.0 license. I forgot to add it first time around, but assume the earlier version can be likewise shared, hosted, remixed, whatever.

Wil Wheaton and friends play Fiasco

I’ve been meaning to review the game Fiasco, but Wil Wheaton has provided something much better: video of an actual game of Fiasco played with actor Alison Haislip, screenwriter John Rogers, and author Bonnie Burton, part of Wheaton’s Tabletop series. For those not already familiar with the game, Fiasco combines improvisation, collaborative storytelling, and randomly generated story elements to produce a Coen brothers-esque story about people with “powerful ambition and poor impulse control.” The game itself is available from Bully Pulpit Games.
