|Poor, poor lad....|
Gaining a vantage point on a gantry I'm set upon by four Jock types and a brawl ensues. Ryan steps in whilst our comrades prefer to watch. Hard pressed, punched to the head, I go all paranoid flagellant on Jock 1 and succeed in taking off his head, rather literally, just as a dozen plod roll in and all make a bee line.
Having kicked off I apparently have no choice but too charge, so do whilst waving around Jock 1's head. Ryan melts back into the crowd which is fair enough. I wake up in a holding cell with a load a load more bruises.
Charlie's Tech Priest goes down the negotiation route to secure my release but runs into red tape and a hefty fine he can't afford to pay. He goes official demanding my release as a member of the Inquisition. No dice .....literally.
No dice, no dice, no dice.
Apparently our Inquisitor and the Governor used to play golf together! He does manage to transfer the funds though as Charlie wasn't in on the bet or the winnings.

Tempers amongst the group fray with the feeling that the price wouldn't be so high but for our ill gotten gains. Several of us feel that we could just leave this planet to its fate at this rate. All it needs is one paranoid malcontent to set it all off...........
At this point Mr C looses his rag a bit too and things get a bit heated. Not happened before but were mates so all sorted our quick enough.
Interesting point that as well as learning a new game system and the dynamics of its setting the dynamic between players and GM needs to learnt as well. Much will be dependant on experience levels, real life that is.
What is the groups motivation to play but what also is the GMs motivation to provide that? As players with plenty of campaigns on the clock we look for tangents and quite enjoy a bit of anti-hero now and then. As a fairly new GM Mr C enjoys the control of running through the scenario and "ticking the boxes".
Everyone has bad days and in honesty we all got a bit heavy handed. We also have a group joke of "all against Mr C" that has stood for many a year in the best possible way. The learning process is more than just the rules :)
As Mr C is firstly my mate as well as landlord, house-mate and GM we have a bit of a chat about how we each see my character's characteristics and how they can be played. We admit that we both find my (character) issues frustrating so a little modification has been agreed upon. Flagellant goes and the character points re-spent, I'll just have to spend some time actually reading the rulebook, never my strongest suit.
The sacrifices one makes for ones gaming group :)
