I must admit that I'm getting a weird "Happy endings are teh suxxorz!"-vibe from this. I've been reading Poison'd recently and the one thing that felt a little unnecessary, was how the rules seemed to restrict the group from having certain positive outcomes (namely redemption without death) to the events of the fiction. It strikes me as a quite deprotagonising.
All this talk about rules inviting unwelcome (or interesting) events into the fiction I can totally get behind; but if it's at the exclusion of welcome events created by the rules it just seems a little... annoying.
