Categories Musing “Awesome, I failed.” Post author By doycet Post date 2006-06-09 2 Comments on “Awesome, I failed.” Random Heroquest thought, prepping for the Firefly game tonight: Failure means conflict. ← For tonight: → AV’s, Rudalak, Munchies, and YOU 2 replies on ““Awesome, I failed.”” That is so freaking key to the mindset in an HQ game. We’ve all grown up on D&D/D20 “failure means you’re lying on the floor bleeding out; do you have another character sheet ready?” Fear of failure means fear of action means fear of creativity. One doesn’t *do* something because the risk (death, and a simple, unheroic death at that) is so high. Must. Keep. This. In. Mind. Or, to put it another way: “Failure *is* an option … because it’s not really failure, just *redirection*.” Pfft. Failure is just an excuse to try to talk Doyce into something *really* odd.
