I’ve finally started watching Fargo and it’s an interesting prism on FatT, and Jack’s playstyle in particular. I was wondering why you would make this cool hitman character (Fourteen-Fifteen) and then play them as a bumbling comedy of errors, but that’s basically the Fargo formula (throwing no shade, I love it).
Also, following on from the Tips at the Table discussion about alignment, Fargo is a really interesting template for how alignment can fit into modern stories. I think part of the problem everyone has with alignment these days is that black-and-white stories feel old fashioned, but Fargo is definitely a world with likeable Lawful Good characters and other characters who are walking Evil. And it’s believable and compelling storytelling.
(it also makes me want to play a paladin based on Marge Gunderson)
