And so our story begins...

... In the small, clustered Metrovol city district of Paboi, named after the Russian who originally founded the community. Now home to dens of thieves, criminals, and hit men, the streets that wind through the broken down tenements are more often flowing with blood than with money from the local coffers.

It is on these cold city streets that our three heroes find themselves, none of them yet knowing that they will one day be at the top of the food chain... for better or worse, fractured or united... anything is possible within Fate's sight. All Fate knows are its chosen, and from them it shall weave an insurmountable tale of malice, vice, karma, piety, blood, and honor. An epic to favor the streets and spit on the offices of the wealthy, the greedy, and the unrelenting militia who so often hunt on the meager and infest their lives with misery and woe.

Yes, it is here. And it is now.


For there you all stand. The date: November 13th, 1989. The air is cold and wet with recent rain. It never snows anymore, at least not over Metrovol proper.

On an average day such as this... what might our heroes be found doing?

That's your cue, sorry.

Also, here's how this will work:

Since this is a "success" based system, you'll need a table indicating the successes needed to achieve your actions.

    *[-1] Automatic Failure: That is, if you roll 1d6 and apply a stat penalty, a score of -1 or below means you automatically fail that action and I dictate what happens.
    *[0-2] Menial Task: This is the requirement for something as simple as flipping a light switch or pouring a cup of coffee, depending on the stat, of course.
    *[3-4] Dim Feat: This is the roll required to succeed in any action that falls slightly inbetween average and menial tasks.
    *[5] Average Schlep: This is the roll required to do something at an utterly average capacity, such as shoot an slow moving target with a rifle, or dance like a lunatic.
    *[6-7] Impressive Task: These are slightly above average actions, like talking a person out of fuming at you and letting you buy them a few drinks.
    *[8-9] Incredible Feat: These are awesome actions that go above and beyond the normal an average human could pull off, such as pin-pointing a high-speed target at 50 paces.
    *[10] Godly Action: These are the nigh-impossible feats you always see in movies, like slicing a falling cherry blossom pedal in half with your katana without disturbing the air, or landing a headshot with a rifle while doing a backflip to avoid nearby combatants. Even for those who have 4 in a stat... Godly Actions are difficult to achieve.


So, you declare your actions, I tell you what your target number is (one of the above numbers) and what stat you will use, and then you roll. If you succeeded in reaching or surpassing that number (adding together your roll, plus bonuses/penalties from the stat, plus any Luck uses (which must be declared before you declare your action)), then you dictate what happens then. You do not get to use "and"s or "then"s; keep the actions short.

However, for every 1 that you pass the requirement by, you get an additional little bit of description that you can add to your action (thereby allowing you to use "and"s, "then"s, and etc).

For example:

Dave declares he wants his kick-ass street brawler named Mikey to punch the guy nearest him. His GM tells him this is an average action that uses Fortitude. Dave's Brawler has a Fortitude of 3. He rolls 1d6 and gets a 3, giving him a 6 total. Taking into account his extra description, he declares his action: "Mikey stands up and lands a blow on the nearest guy's face, knocking him out cold." The "knocking him out cold" was Mikey's extra description; if he had just totaled a 5, his action would not have knocked the guy out, just done a little damage.
