Everyone is John

Everyone is John
A competitive roleplaying game for three or more people. Everyone is John is a humorous, competitive roleplaying game about playing the various personalities of John, an insane man from Minneapolis. One participant is the GM, or, in Everyone is John lingo, "Everyone Else." All of the other players are Voices in John's head. Everyone is John uses six-sided dice (you really only need one, but it might be easiest if every participant carries one) for play. Voices Voices are the Player Characters of Everyone is John. Willpower Willpower is a pool of points that the Voice can spend to take control of John or improve its chance of success in any given action. Skills Each Voice has two or three skills. Obsession This is kind of like a winning condition: if you complete your obsession more than other Voices complete their obsession, you win. If you're going to seriously compete with the other Voices, you probably should keep your sheet a secret. John John is a totally insane man in Minneapolis.

Motivation: What is it that really gets your character’s motor running? Instinct: What is your character’s first reaction to a threat (physical or otherwise)? Approach: What archetype is your character best known for being? Now just because every character in D&D is combat-capable does not necessarily make them all warrior-type personalities. Carrion, Tiefling Earth WardenMotivation 3 (Information); Instinct 4 (Protect Others); Approach 10 (Disciplined Commander) Though the city of Bael Turath stands in ruins, much of the Tiefling heritage lies buried ignobly around the Known World.
