Mutants and Masterminds, one game down. - Mon, Apr 13, 2009
Last Sunday (yeah, I’m a slacker), was my first game as the Mutants and Masterminds storyteller.
I must say, it went rather well.
There is one aspect that I got a taste of when I ran Shadowrun that I really see now. No matter how concrete you think your story outline is. No matter how much you have prepared for the game thinking of all of the possible sidetracking your players will go on, they will always think of something that you didn’t. We spent most of the game ignoring the fact that all of the superheros of the world went missing (except the ones in Stockton) instead on trying to balance the budget of California so the Stockton Arena wouldn’t get shut down.
Yeah. My players wanted to move the prision system to another dimension to save California money. Yeah, I’m at a loss too. It wasn’t until I made something very dear to them go missing did they get back on track. Wow, screwing over the rest of the world to save the Stockton Arena and California. Never saw that coming.
Other than that, keeping my fingers crossed for another good game.
