Default Truth or dare!


Apparently the last issue's staff Inquisition was not sufficiently scarring--heck, it was only fatal to one person; where's the fun in that?--so they've naively agreed to brave the onslaught again. You can choose to either ask questions to specific people, or general ones answerable by anyone...and possibly everyone. Depending on how cruel I feel, I will give each staff member a choice between answering one of your questions... or something along the general vein of being eaten by a dinosaur. (Isn't that a good dare? I dare you to be eaten by a dinosaur!)

...Seeing as all of the dares I choose will almost definitely culminate with an untimely, gruesome death, we need some 'truth' questions that'll make the choice hard. No holds barred. Let's make this game good.

What happened last time then? I must have missed that...

Here's a general question: What is the most excruciatingly embarassing thing that has ever happened to you, and I don't just mean leaving your flies undone or mistaking a stranger for a friend, I mean really shockingly embarassing. Dish the dirt. Now.

Well. Depending on something that may or may not happen tonight, I just might have a ready answer for that one...

Yes--the original plan was to all answer the same question, but it didn't happen. This time we decided it can just go either way.

The most embarassing situation I found myself in... probibly explaining to a doctor and a trainee nurse about an 'encounter' in great detail...

Night Wanderer, doesn't the game specify that the victim--I mean player--has to pick "truth" or "dare" before they know what the question is? Or is that just how I played it growing up?

How about:
"We know you must have lied somewhere on your staff resume. What was the lie? Tell us the truth!"

Rules? Never was much of a fan of those.

I may post it in the 'decadence' writing competition... I can kill two birds with one stone this way >>
Also that way you get to hear the terrifying tale in all its perverted sordidness.
