MC: "Ok, you are at home. What do you do?"
Player: "Flip on the radio, crack open a bottle of homebrew, and kick back on the couch..."
MC: "Ok, suddenly... you are pounced on by... Ninjas!!!"
Player: "I pat his head, and say; 'Good boy Ninjas.'; and sip my bottle. What's on the radio?"
Player: "Nice. I think Static is pretty good at getting unbiased news out; and listen to her talk about the movements of III and his Dogs along the Westreach Highways... seems they have done heavy damage to the border patrols of The Patriots and The Republicans; but, the Corporate Independent Alliance is sponsoring a sizeable bounty on his head, and increasing security on all caravan routes with an open invitation to all mercenaries. I finish off the bottle, wash it and hang it on the rack. When Static starts playing music again, I ask Ninjas if he wants to visit Rolfball."
MC: "... woof?"
Player: "Good boy, Ninjas. Let's pack some rats&rounds into the Solar-Rover. Then we head out east, into Circuit City."
MC: "What just happened?"
Player: "We hit a bit of loose debris, skidded into the median, popped a tire, and overloaded the converter... the Rover stopped humming, and the running lights went out. Is that one of the Dog Packs on the overpass?"
sometimes, if you just let the player play... unexpected stuff happens...
but, if it gets dull, don't forget to pounce on 'em with Ninjas.
