Peril Soup at Duck House

Display GM(s) As
Amanda Robinson

Rufus T. Firefly, the newly-appointed leader of Freedonia, has been the target of several failed assassination attempts. Players are characters tasked with figuring out who wants Firefly dead and putting a stop to the assassination attempts-- except that they ALSO want Firefly dead.

"Plot" is a loose (very, very loose) mashup of Agatha Christie's Peril at End House and the Marx Brothers' Duck Soup, with a lot of player-driven background added in. Players do not have to be familiar with either story. In fact, players may wish to avoid both stories entirely, lest they be wildly disappointed in how far the game strays.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Characters are people who want Rufus T. Firefly to die, either for personal reasons or political ones. They are also people who Firefly would task with stopping the assassination attempts (though Rufus T. Firefly is originally a Groucho Marx character and "You were selling peanuts outside my window so I made you a cabinet member" is perfectly reasonable to him, and thus any thin excuse will do just fine.)

Character creation uses the Paragraph System, in which you tell me a paragraph about your character, and I reserve the right to ask questions.
