Okay, at risk of dominating the conversation and hijacking Caustic's game, I've got something more to throw out. Here's what I was thinking:
<Snip, snip... snip snip... snip... fuck... Snip... snip>
How does that sound to everyone?
Fantastically good idea.
In addition, I'll break out some photoshop, if I have time, and encourage others to do the same.
I'm open to additional contributions, by the way... but in the meantime, I feel confident in giving this a whirl.
This is an open call for characters, ladies and gentlemen.
Please drop me a PM with your basic character:
1) concept and *brief* history/description
2) motivation for playing
3) player's limits
The game is 5 card stud: the Two Down, Three Up variety... I'll track hands. Each player will start with two cards, face-down, and can bet on those. Each of the next three turns, if they choose to "stay in", they will get a face-up card. If they get a joker face-up, they get the action. If they get it face down, they can CHOOSE to take that action during the game and get the appropriate reward. And the jokers are always wild.
Basically, just like Silkcat laid out in the snipped scene above.
Who's up for a game with a Devil?
BTW: here's a 'handy' reference for those of you who were raised by nuns and friars...http://online-casino.webpark.pl/images/rank_of_poker_hands.gif
