Debrief

In Debrief, you will tell the story of three operatives-in-training that were involved in a training mission that went wrong. This short is for four players. Three of you will play the operatives, and the fourth will play the debriefing officer. Each operative will have an opportunity to tell their side of the story.

The player of the debriefing officer should start the short off by choosing an operative player. The debriefing officer should ask the operative to recount events as best he can recall them.

Each operative is being kept in a separate room for debriefing, so no other operative can correct or argue with an operatives statements. However, as the operative currently being questioned, you can pull other operatives into your recollection. Their players will play the operatives within the scene, but under certain restrictions. If the operative currently being questioned, makes a statement about the other operatives attitude or behavior, then that operatives player must abide by it. For example, the statement “Fred was acting squirrelly like he had something to hide” would require that Fred be played as if he had something to hide.

The player of the debriefing officer should feel free to cut a scene at any point and switch over to another operative. This player should also ask questions about details from other stories, ensuring that the seperate narratives all have the same general events and lead to the moment when the mission went wrong.

The short ends when all of the operatives have told their side of the story. As a group, collectively decide what will happen to each of the operatives after the debriefing.
