Deck Of Fridays 17: Didn't See You Coming

Welcome back to DECK OF FRIDAYS, our weekly feature here at FATE SF. We make a draw from the Deck of FateRPG Inspiration Cards, or another Aspect-generative randomizer. Then we do something interesting with it, using the Aspect as inspiration for a campaign or scenario seed, a situation, scene, location, NPC, thingie, etc.

This week's draw from the Deck of Fate is a card with the Aspect: Didn't See You Coming Point, a card with a +1 value. So, an element of surprise or distraction creates mildly favorable circumstances for someone who seeks to act first and/or evade detection.

Perhaps the PCs are approaching a checkpoint, roadblock, or security station. Here is a 4DF table of reasons why the person responsible for spotting your approach failed to do so!


Didn't See You Coming, the Table

Roll 4DF and consult the corresponding result below.
  • -4: I am so not high
  • -3: Sooooo sleepy
  • -2: Kinda busy flirting right now
  • -1: Distracted by communications (e.g., texting, VR, comms, phone, etc.)
  •  0: Oh, I'm just too busy noticing everything to have noticed you
  • +1: Wow, that person over there is really attractive
  • +2: You were not the person (droid, alien, etc.) I was looking for
  • +3: Busy with a real emergency
  • +4: You have a sympathizer or secret admirer*
*They really DID see you coming but they are on your side!
