The Pit of Danger (Forum Game - "The Pit of Despair" Sequel)

Postby Warlock on Thu May 12, 2011 1:43 pm

Welcome, Mortals, to the Pit of Danger.

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.
Note: Sign-ups are not open yet. Sign-ups will start tomorrow morning and I will be opening a few slots at at time roughly every hour. This is to give everyone a fair chance at joining and to give everyone fair warning that a game will be starting soon.

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

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 Danger", however some of them are quite literally "dead ends". There are many dangers in the "Pit of Danger" and many goblins will not make it out alive. Those who do survive, 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!


REMEMBER: SIGN-UPS ARE NOT OPEN YET. SIGN-UPS WILL START TOMORROW MORNING AND ONLY A FEW SLOTS WILL BE OPEN AT THAT TIME. AFTER THAT, ROUGHLY EVERY HOUR, A FEW MORE SLOT WILL BE OPENED UNTIL I FEEL THERE ARE ENOUGH PLAYERS. KEEP WATCHING THIS POST FOR MORE INFORMATION.

No rules against it. Anyone can sign-up when the slots are opened. Slots are available on a first come, first served basis. The first slots will be available sometime between 6:00 AM and 7:00 AM Eastern. That means that everyone is being given at least a 12 hour notice of this game starting up. More rules as well as back story for the characters will be provided later this evening. Good luck!

Sorry, no dibs. I will only be opening a few spots every hour. I'll probably open the first spots around 7:00 AM EST and more will open every hour till at least 3:00 PM EST. That's at least 9 slot opening times. There will probably be 2 or 3 slots opening each hour. I'm considering about 20-25 slots total.

"The Pit of Danger" Back Story

You are all part of the "Hey Watch This" Clan. This clan was started by Tempts Fates's 2nd cousin, Chief Look-No-Hands! As such, they all share the same death defying drive (but unfortunately they aren't always successful in defying death). As such, they constantly seek out new dungeon crawls to try out their skills and satisfy their thrill seeking nature. Recently one of the scouts came back (after drawing the short straw, the other three members of the scouting party got to try it first but haven't come back yet) to report on a new crawl which was just discovered. The sign outside the crawl labeled it as "The Pit of Danger". It was located just past the Howling Woods (and was a stones throw from the front door of the Gobl'INN, how something like that sprung up overnight is anybody's guess).

The Pit of Danger - Updated Rules

As with my last game, there is no need to worry about HP, ATK or DEF, however there will be items available in this game, some of which, if used properly, can help you avoid being killed in certain situations.
There is also a list of achievements, each of which can be activated by doing certain things. You'll have to figure that out for yourself. Some are easy, but some are a bit tricky.

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.
