True fog of war

Another attempt at gamer horror in 140 characters, for Flash Fearsday. Rules below.

The gaming table is empty. A true fog of war.
Disorders are issued and resistance unmet; a non-zero sum game.
But -
What else do we not see?

You can join in - it's just 140 - and leave the narrative or a link at Lunching on Lamias.

Here are those rules then, some propluristemic content, for many, maybe all games.

True fog of war

You will not need: character sheets, maps, miniatures, counters, terrain or a board. All dice may be used, unless you are taking the optional higher random approach. Play.

Tip: Be sure you're at the right table, and not a piece on any other, in a stranger game.

All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players. I don't think there's any way to really ascertain that we aren't all pieces in someone else's game.

Maybe the best we can hope to do is to play out our roles doing marvelous and unexpected things with the constraints of the stats we're assigned.

I'd bet on balance we are, and that many if not most we're entirely unaware of. A very fine conclusion. Here's to all the marvellous and unexpected things to come!
