In another forum, Crisper asked (regarding the US Presidential Election
>Goddammit, where's the fucking Dungeon Master, anyway?
GM: Roll your final election
night success rolls.
GWB: [rolls] 11! Marginal success.
AG: [rolls] 11! Also marginal success.
GM: Ok. Let's see how bad this is... [rolls] 18. Well. Isn't that special.
Critical chaos table ... GWB, isn't your brother in charge of Florida?
GWB: Yeah... but he's a NPC...
GM: Too bad. AG, Florida was called for you on election
night, but has
shifted back to GWB by ... [rolls] twelve hundred votes. Al has a
[rolls] 0.2% lead in the popular vote but is losing the electoral
college if Florida stays in GWB's column.
AG: Recount! Recount!
GWB: No fair, if I'm winning...
GM: Marginal success.
GWB: But that was a success!
GM: [rolls] 18 again! An excellent success. The election
in one of the Florida counties screwed up the ballot so all the
voters with IQ under 100 or over 75 years old voted for the wrong
person or twice.
AG: I sue! No, wait, I don't sue, the *voters* sue...
GM: Roll to convince some voters to sue.
AG: ...[rolls] 14! I got 'em!
GWB: This is just terrible. We can't be doing this to the country.
Concede already, Al.
AG: Did the media see that? Did they?
GM: GWB, make a saving throw versus media.
GWB: [rolls] 8. Nope.
GM: Make a saving throw versus public opinion.
GWB: [rolls] 12. Close enough?
GM: People are shaking their heads, but not trying to burn down your house.
GM: [rolls] 17. Excellent. The first recount results show GWB's
lead narrowing to... [rolls] 350 votes!
AG: I want a hand recount.
GWB: No, you don't.
AG: It says I can have a hand recount. It's on Page 41 of the Election
Masters Guide, third paragraph, second sentence.
GWB: Don't be a Wussy Rules Lawyer.
GM: [flips pages] He's right.
GWB: Well Damnit. I'm suing to stop him anyways.
GM: You're suing to overturn the rules?
GWB: Damn straight.
GM: Oh-kay... roll for it.
GWB: [rolls] 15! Hey, look at that, I got a 15!
GM: Good, but not good enough to overturn a game rule...
AG: Haw Haw.
GWB: See if I share my pizza with you next time.
AG: Hey, don't get Snippy.
