Conversion Experience: Chin Music #1

Chin Music #1
Image Comics; July 2013; $2.99

Chin Music is an interesting mix of noir and supernatural. While the story is a bit disjointed at times, by the end it starts to come together. The gist? Famed detective Elliot Ness is possessed by a spirit from Egypt who uses Ness' body to help others. In the final panel we see Al Capone's head explode as he is shot from a magic bullet fired by Ness.

     For today's Fate Accelerated (FAE) conversion, I'd like to present a stunt that may emulate Ness' magic bullet trick.

Magic Bullet
     Because I can create a Magic Bullet, I can Carefully fire a gun at a target anywhere in the city once per day. Because the target will not know the bullet is coming, he or she does not get to roll dice for defense.

    1. It looks to be a neat comic. Number 2 is out, so I have to take a look. :)

  2. How does one come up with this idea? Elliot Ness possessed by an Egyptian spirit???

    1. It's pretty bizarre and i look forward to seeing the concept more fully explained. I love the bullet trick, though. So long, Al Capone. Boom! Headshot.
