We Accidentally Fed Hitler Chicken Biscuits in Fiasco

Fiasco is a story-telling RPG system for three to five people -- and one of the major benefits to Fiasco is that you can, essentially, do anything you want with it. There are hundreds of player-made kits for different settings, and each of these settings come with pre-made builds.
