A Magickal Fiasco: Full Tilt Story Creation for Mage

Suggested Price $2.99

Effortless(er) Story Creation from one of the guys at Mage: The Podcast


Maybe you're a new storyteller and you'd like some help getting your first chronicle going.
Maybe you're a profoundly experienced storyteller and you just want to add some oddities and complications to help bring a story to life.
Maybe you're a fan of Mage: The Podcast and you just want to subsidize my purchase of a new microphone.

This book. Will help. All of you. Probably.

A Magickal Fiasco: Full Tilt Story Creation for Mage is a guide to story seeding, a process where you randomly generate a web of relationships, intrigue, and motivations, hooks to get the story going, and some complications because no story ends how anyone thinks it should.  Based on the wildly popular game Fiasco by Bully Pulpit Games, all you need are some 10-sided dice (or their digital equivalent), sticky notes (or their digital equivalent), and a dream (or its digital equivalent) and you too can create plot lines and story hooks never before seen in under an hour.

But I'm an amazing ST why would I use this?
Maybe you want to run a one shot, or characters encounter NPCs you've not planned, or a player said "oh yeah, I bet you couldn't run a randomly-generated plot from one of the guys at Mage: The Podcast" and you wish to prove that person wrong.  In all these cases this tool will help.

Is this a Fiasco supplement?
No, but if you want to make it one, I'm not going to stop you.

Why are you releasing it as pay what you want?
My goal was to put it in as many hands as possible also the Fiasco license requires it to be free or PWYW

Are you going to make version for game>?
Maybe, just maybe. The process of making this one nearly killed me so I'm going to need some recovery time.

How large is this file? Having no preview or page count makes it tricky to know what I want to pay. The suggested price would of course work, but still.

Decided to buy unseen. Looking through my 23 page PDF now, looks interesting.

Huh. Let me fix that. And if you find you don't like it, I'll be glad to refund you.

Publisher Stock #
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
