Pulling A Rashomon

Ritual

When Vasilisa Titov tells a story, that story tends to take on a life of its own. When the characters are drawn into a surreal story flashback, this Ritual begins.

Specifically, the Ritual is officially invoked whenever Vasilisa (or another character with the ability to tell stories in a way that breaks fourth walls., which could be any of the characters under the right circumstances) says something like:

"I can tell you exactly what happened!"

Then everyone gets to do one of the following:

  • Offer a short description of something that recently occurred as if it was being portrayed in a flashback. You are allowed to embellish or take liberties with actual events in this description.
  • Reacting or emoting at a description made by someone else.
  • Retell a portion of the story already described by another character, while putting your own spin on it.
  • Offer a short description of the characters in the flashback describing them as if they are entities simply acting out parts independent of the story being told.
  • Doing something that starts a different Ritual, if you can, and combining the two Rituals thereby

The Ritual ends when someone (preferably multiple people, in unison) says something like "And that's how it happened!"
