April in Paris game

Post by Hermes Serpent » Sun Jun 05, 2016 7:19 pm

This was anew for 2016 scenario written for Games Expo and it went beautifully and featured emigres both Russian and Polish, a French Antiquarian shop owner and a French dancer all employed by a German posing as a Swede to retrieve a winged statue. Much time was taken to speak in poor French accents to large numbers of NPCs in the search for the statue's current owner. The players had such a lot of fun in 1938 Paris that they had to be urged once or twice to actually do some investigating. Not a bullet was fired or knife used other than at a dining table and mostly only interpersonal skills.

No-one spotted which film I'd stolen the plot from until very close to the end and that player kept her mouth closed for the sake of the game. A brother and sister were playing the Russian emigre and the chorus girl and the sister is not going to let her brother escape a teasing for his performance as Fifi Labonne and it might even come up at the Christmas family get-together.
