For this year’s Game Chef, I struggled, but came up with something I am proud of.
Here is the character sheet.
With blunt as one of the ingredients, I had this idea of teenage drugdealers. With sheepskin as a synonym for a diploma, well, now the game started to have some heart, so what started as a game title derived from a Ghostface Killah song, turned into more.
Fishscale is a game about the lies these teenage drugdealers tell themselves and others in order to survive, and how these lies become truths, and how the truth becomes lost is the sticky-green haze. These teenagers are looking to get into the best colleges, and the GM serves as admission counselor as the game session draws to a conclusion.
