Back again this time a question about The Denotation.

When I see they have an implement such as a pencil, or in my players case a paintbrush, often times my player will use their implement to create constructs within the overlay of the Veil in the hybrid space. Things like painting doorknobs on locked panels, or painting blindfolds over the sensors of a gun drone.

I鈥檓 enjoying this as a creative way for the player to produce solutions to obstacles, but upon reading the recommendations and examples of the playbook from Cascade, I don鈥檛 really see any examples of the moves being used this way (since most of them deal with the manipulation of data rather than the production of digital constructs which affect the veil).

For the most part, I鈥檝e been having my player roll subvert when they wish to add something to the digital overlay of the hybrid space.

My question is, lacking examples of this sort of productive capacity of the implement in the book, is this something that is intended to be within the scope of the playbook? Is the Denotation intended to be able to produce new objects with their implement rather than just alter the intended meaning of existing iconography?

Thanks!

  1. Yeah for sure, since in hybrid space data can appear as physical objects anyways, manipulating and creating new things seems within the scope. Playbooks are intended to be somewhat open to interpretation so people can use them in creative ways.
