Title: Best in Class

Created by: C.J. Morton

Tragedy Set: Basic Tragedy


Description: A deranged and amoral student blames a classmate for her isolation from her peers and her crush's rejection. Unfortunately for her unsuspecting target, her father is both wealthy enough to make her twisted wish into reality, and sufficiently devastated by his failure to save his wife that he wants nothing more than to make those around him suffer as well. A diligent cop and his loyal daughter are doing their best to protect their beloved hometown, but they have much to contend with. An orderly unjustly fired from the hospital resents his new office job and seeks answers, but his assertions that something is wrong at the hospital are only creating panic. A violent young Yakuza member'rs behaviour is only becoming more erratic and unpredictable due to his concern for his younger brother, hospitalized and helpless. Will the protagonists be able to guide this town to a peaceful future, or will two twisted generations commit a crime that will tear their community asunder? They will be putting themselves at great risk to find out...

This is my first attempt at creating a custom script. I have a group who will play test it this week or next. Any tips/critiques would be welcome - particularly, I'm concerned about balance. Reading through the creation guide, I know I picked several of the more difficult plots/subplots/culprits. My intention in creating this script was to make a fast-paced gameplay experience where there are several loss conditions the protagonists will need to account for, and lots of information to gradually be revealed throughout the loops. Let me know where I succeeded in this goal, and where I failed completely!
