So how do people feel about the party Tension meter?
Any hypotheses on how it works?
In the video, not only was it raised if there were in-game character interactions, but if two PLAYERS were starting to go at it.
This is a phenomena that I've seen, personally. I've had a player so upset at the condition of his character due to Psychic Backlash (caused by my Psyker in Dark Heresy) that he spent Fortune Points to help him kill my character. He, as a person, wanted to kill my character.
Things got pretty awkward after he sawed my PCs throat open (well, I had to spend a Fate Point, and his hand was stopped by a Deux Ex Machina). Anyways, it was pretty bad, and it changed the course of our party interactions forever.
Have any of you had any bad experiences like this?
Do any of you think that this Tension meter might smooth out any game grudges between players?
