About the Story

"These three are a hardened bunch. No matter how you’ve hammered them independently, they haven’t caved.

But then Second Detective Leftenant Gustav Schmidt got the bright idea: put ’em together and see if some sparks fly.

So far, no luck, though. You need to ask them some more specific questions. Perhaps you should discuss the stolen items–the mask, the banana, and the tea." -- (Introductory Text)

Discord by Sean Barrett was an entry in Speed-IF -1 so the usual expectations of slight implementation very much apply. It also helps to know that the requirements for that Speed-IF were to "Write a game in which Hank Buzzcrack, Mother Theresa, and/or, T.S. Eliot are involved in a plot to steal any or all of thousands of litres of tea, the golden banana of discord, or a suspended mask."

I was ignorant of the above during my first play-through and felt like the premise was the setup for a joke that never delivers a punch line.

Barrett's take on the requirements was to have the PC interrogate the three characters after their peculiar heist. It was fairly easy to exhaust the conversation tree and thereby win, but I never connected all the dialogue into a coherent story. It may have helped to know something about "Hank Buzzcrack".

Over all it seemed like the ludicrous situation and combination of characters was meant to carry the humor and deliver a few chuckles, but for this reviewer that never happened.
