The Pit of Despair

Postby Warlock on Thu Mar 24, 2011 4:01 am

Welcome, Mortals, to the Pit of Despair.

This is a relatively short forum game in the style of LoneStarNorth and EvilCoatrack's games. Some elements are borrow directly from them (without their permission, but I honestly don't think they mind. Its not like any of us make any money off of doing this.).

Instructions are quite simple. Sign up. Read the current day's update. Post your actions. Chaos ensues.

This game does not have any fighting, so no need for worrying about HP, Att or Def. This game is not so much about skill as it is about luck. There will be several spots available. (How many? I'm not exactly sure yet. At least 10. Maybe more. If I get too many sign-ups before closing the sign-up time, I may randomly choose who gets in.)

More than anything, this is a test of my own ability to run such a game. Both LoneStarNorth and EvilCoatrack have done such brilliant jobs with their games, I just had to try. Since this is my first game, I'm going to ask for a little leeway on my update schedule, since I have no idea how long it will take me to get the updates done each day. In general, there will be about 24 hours between updates, it could be less, but more often than not, it will be more. Weekends are especially tricky for me. Depending on how this games goes will determine if I attempt a longer, more involved game similar to LSN and EC.

To sign up, please state your character's name and choose skin and clothing colors. (All goblins will be wearing pants and a vest.)

SPOILERS:A word of warning! This game is not like LSN's and EvilCoatrack's games in that goblins will most assuredly die. There are multiple paths through the "Pit of Despair", however some of them are quite literally "dead ends". Due to the magics involved in creating the "Pit of Despair", you can only move forward, never backwards. There are dangers in the "Pit of Despair" and many goblins will not make it out alive. Those who do surive do so because of luck. Some of the dangers you will face are based on your choices within the "Pit" and some are random. Do not mourn over long for those lost, lest you share in their fate. Good luck!

Please choose another skin color. The background is white and white skin won't show up unless I outline your goblin, which might be difficult over multiple updates depending on your action. I can do a very light grey (#ECECEC), if you like.

You name is fine, however what you do or don't do will determine how you die. Also, there are no "hidden destinies" in this game. Finally, you may have been crushed by a falling piano played by a monkey in a top hat previously but survived the ordeal. :P

Sounds fun!

You Got It Just Give Me A Second



Clothes green shirt and pants

You Got It Just Give Me A Second (Yougot for short) the result of another naming ceremony gone wrong. After his birth Yougot was taken to the tellers hut for a proper name, the teller at the time was moving heavy objects in her hut and called out "you got it just give me a second"... Unfortunately the goblin's of Yougot's clan were not too sharp, and were long gone by the time the teller was ready, already celebrating the birth/naming of You Got It Just Give Me A Second.

Here are stats for a player race I created, compatible with 3.5 D&D. Please steal.

SPOILERS:Tasty People
+2 Charisma: Tasty People have strong natural pheromones.
-2 Wisdom: Tasty People have a racial predisposition for making bad decisions.
When faced with an encounter involving a predatory creature, a Tasty Person must make a Charisma Check. If the DC (15) is met, the creature will attack the Tasty Person to the exclusion of other targets who are not also Tasty People who have met this DC. The DC should be modified for monsters with a strong sense of smell, I leave this to your discretion as a DM. The monster is not forced to attack the Tasty Person if doing so would cause it to take an attack of opportunity.
A Tasty Person's starting class should be treated as his favored class.

Four hours after the initial post, you have 13 takers. Have you decided how long signups will go?
