GMWhere is Maxim?Right now, I know more than Maxim as a character does, so I'm the GM in this turn.
3
PlayerI'm at one of my "offices" which is a nightclub called Indigo. It's noon time.Random roll on RT's location table:
Roll(2d10)+0:
4,5,+0

4,5 or 5,4, just to have some latitude.
Offices/Rush Hour or Nightclub/Noon

Name of nightclub came from http://www.fantasynamegenerators.com/nightclub-names.php#.WjXURUnibIU

GMWhat is he doing?ali molly said ten blades glittering
5
PlayerI need a history lesson, so I went to my friend Julie. She has some history programs and databases and she's having them sift through the data to find the personal history of the two artists. They are focusing on the period during and immediately after the war.

I also got a hold of some art history microsofts and I'm analyzing the artists handwriting and their known works for neuroelectronic patterns.

13
GMYour sometime collaborator Ali drops by; not an unusual thing.

"Maxim, I was just thinking about you." To Julie, "Hi Julie."
It makes sense to bring in Ali as part of AIWA, since Yasmin had instructed her AI assistant to get in touch with him.
chat was not really a dealing
14
Player"Ali,just in time. Make me an Old Fashioned and sit down."

I'm going to tell him I made a deal. When he comes.

GM"History," Ali says with exaggerated seriousness, as if humoring you. "I can drink to that," he says before downing his drink. deal said the flatline no ice
26
PlayerI tell him the information about the deal and that I'm trying to sort it all out.deal of information and sort itI think that the concordances indicate that the Player will tell Ali about the deal (otherwise why mention it?). Plus he's got a mutual friend working on it, so it can't be that secret.

deal stand you got enough time
27
GMSo, I think that we've reached a point where it makes sense to go to the dice. My intent is to give Maxim the nCon 'Impaired' by getting him drunk.A player can't be unaware of the adversarial nature of Face Off scenes. I have to assume that the imaginary player knows I'm there to mess with their character.

At the same time, I have to think that in a game like this, sometimes as a player you have to give in a little for the sake of the scene. So, I'm imagining that if Maxim's player was a real person, they'd be playing along and taking the bait to help make a better scene.
28
PlayerI want to get the pCon 'Connected' to show Julie found a contact I can follow. deal was they had get my

GM(Wins by 1 margin of success. slaps 'Impaired' on Maxim. Increase INF by 1.) Basically, I get Maxim drunk, and con the data out of him (which justifies the +1 INF)Roll(3d10)+0:
3,1,8,+0
pg. 31 says I can increase INF by 1, so that would make sense.
deal where is it london case
30
PlayerAli keeps feeding Maxim more Old Fashioneds, making Maxim's much stronger than his or Julie's. When Maxim is properly drunk and takes a bathroom break, Ali rummages through Maxim's device to copy the data found so far. There is bound to be something useful there (justifying the +1 INF)



Julie tells him, "You're trying to con Max."



Ali just shrugs, and says "Already did," as he kisses her on the cheek. Then he quickly leaves the nightclub.



Julie shakes her head disapprovingly, but she knew it was all part of the game.
drunk case rum- maged in thedrunkRoll(3d10)+0:

AIWA has more successes, so Maxim is the loser.

(Loser does not achieve goal, but narrates results.)

I don't feel like I need concordances to tell me what happens as it's dictated by the dice results. Still, I looked for some to see if it would word things differently than me.
