Disaster simulation as an RPG

Nickles: Hah hah! I say "This is Mayor Greg Nickels and I order you to go investigate the dirty bomb!"

DM: Okay, roll against Charisma and see if he's convinced. Meanwhile, what do you do, Gary?

Seattle Fire Chief Gary Morris: I grab my Fire Axe of Tor +2 and slide down the pole to my truck...

My brother's done quite a few of these. I'll have to ask him if that's what it's really like.
