Castle Fudgeenstein

I have decided to go with the "Fudge" card system for Castle Faulkenstein. The system will work as follows.

Everyone will bring their own deck of standard unmodified(Shawn) 52 card poker deck.

We will stick with the skill system from the book. (suits and levels will remain the same)

During an action the player will flip the top 4 cards from his deck your base level will be your skill level.

In suit=plus
Off suit same color= minus
Off suit Off color = blank
Joker counts as +2 and is considered In suit

Levels off success will remain from the book as follows
Fumble = 3 below challenged drop. in other words if you need a excellent result an average or below would be a fumble.
failure= -1 to -2
Standard success = tie or +1 result
Full success = +2 to +3 result
High success = +4 result

Sounds great, gets rid of that "working your hand for later" and "begging" for a throw to get a card out of your hand.

Very very true.

Unless you can count cards, in which case I will be begging for more draws until I get more Clubs in my remaining deck *grin*

BTW: Brian did you mean a normal 54 card deck (including the 2 jokers) or were you intending to shaft us by dropping jokers against us? *pththththth* :-P

Shawn don't make me introduce a burn a card rule here!

Yes everyone gets their two jokers.

I think it was a success. The mechanics didn't get in the way of me enjoying the story. (Which I am, BTW)

I also spent the session not grumbling internally about the system, but instead enjoying the story.

Which, like Tim, I'm enjoying.

Very glad people are having a good time. I felt like I was a little off my game last week pacing wise but hopefully I will be back on track this week. I estimate 3-4 more sessions for completion. I'm not sure who is running next is it Tim?

Locnar said...

It's me.

It's me.
