Dead Game Walking

Mostly a thought experiment this one, inspired by recent discussion and a touch of excentric humour.

Take any actual play account of a gaming group you might think of. Now imagine they all had rubber knives (wont hurt anyone). And every time one of them detects that there is no way of continuing play that they have agreed with as yet, they stab everyone else! Insert this into the actual play text. After the stabbing, they’d do whatever they do in the actual play account.

I just like the imagery, because to simply say “At each of those points, the game actually ended. Then afterward they started a new game but didn’t admit it to each other” sounds drab. Also the imagery is kind of fun to talk about even if you want to ignore the hypothesis.
