Clan Rampage (Forum Game)

Postby ReadsVoraciously on Sun Aug 21, 2011 7:15 am

The Story
Throughout goblin lore, one can find numerous tales of goblins justly defending themselves from the attacks of other races. There are countless stories of the virtuous acts of goblin heroes as they protect the innocent and destroy evil invaders: The Clan of the Cryptic Fall. The Finders Clan. Clan Fourem. Clan MightyOak. The StoneTear Clan. The names go on and on of righteous goblins on noble quests.

This is not one of those stories.

Clan Rampage has a different societal structure. They do not have warcamps for the purpose of defending their village, because their village IS a warcamp. Goblins in Clan Rampage are taught to embrace combat from an early age. Goblins have to EARN the right to live permanently in the warcamp. Once they have been taught basic combat skills, young goblins are organized into small raiding parties, and are sent out into the world to conquer and invade non-monster settlements. The purpose of this behavior is to strengthen the goblins enough to be able to fulfill the goal set for them by the village. The goal is simple in nature, but difficult to achieve. They must bring back the heads of adventurers. No goblin party can return to the village without at least 1 adventurer head per goblin. They are able to return once they have met this requirement, sharing their knowledge and training with the future generations.

So this is the tale of one of these fledgling raiding parties, 7 goblins that must prove themselves to earn a place in their society by going on…THE RAMPAGE.


The Village

The prospective clan members are gathered before their mighty chief, Scalps Adventurers, and their wise teller, Hexes With Wild Abandon. Chief Scalps examines the line of goblins, sizing them up before proclaiming, “It is a tradition in our proud clan for the chief and teller to be present at the Departure Ceremony for our brave, young goblins as they begin their first rampage. You 7 goblins have a long, difficult journey ahead of you. Those of you who succeed will have proven yourselves worthy to become permanent members of our infamous clan. Those of you who fail will hopefully die bravely in glorious battle, living on in the songs and stories of your comrades-in-arms. Also as part of our traditions, you will be choosing new names for yourselves, discarding the fated names provided for you by our teller. This is symbolic of our view of fate. Fate does not control us. We control our own destiny. As proof of this, you will be provided with no weapons, armor, or items of any kind. It is up to each of you to earn all of your power. At this time, you will select your most courageous member as your raiding party leader. You will also choose the member most gifted spiritually to become your teller-in-training. Now go forth younglings, and remember, “No goblin ever won a battle by dying for their clan. They won it by making the enemy die for theirs.”

The Rules

Signing Up
If you would like to play, please signify your interest with a simple post, such as “I would like to play.” Please do not post any character information until you are selected to play. Players will be randomly selected from all those interested. The random selection will be Monday evening.

Character Creation
When you are selected, please post your character name, gender, and color. If you select female as the gender, please also post your hair color. At this time, please also vote for your party leader and teller-in-training. All standard goblins have 1 att, 1 def, and 5 HP. The party leader receives a bonus point to each stat, for a total of 2 att, 2 def, and 6 HP. The Teller will receive the skill, Maglubiyet's Guidance, which warns the Teller when adventurers are nearby. This is a passive ability which is activated at each update. The Teller also has the potential to learn other skills as the adventure progresses.

Actions
Each goblin can perform 1 minor action and 1 major action per turn, or 2 minor actions per turn. Minor actions must take place chronologically before major actions, as all major actions end your turn.

Movement
Movement into an unexplored area is a major action. Movement into a previously explored area is a minor action, making it possible to double move as long as the first area has been previously explored. Movement between previously explored indoor rooms is a free action. Movement from an indoor room to a previously explored outdoor area is a free action. Movement within an area is a free action.

Item/Object Interaction
Using items, such as potions, is a major action. Giving away items is a minor action. Looting found items is a minor action. Looting dropped items is a minor action during combat, or a free action after combat. Equipping or unequipping items is a free action.

Inventory
Each character has their own personal inventory. There is not a shared inventory. There is no limit to the space in your inventory.

Combat
All combat actions and healing are major actions. Healing takes place at the same time as damage. If a character reaches 0 HP and does not receive healing, they are dead. All items found during the adventure are deemed clan property upon a clan member's passing. Any clan member may claim the items of a fallen clanmate on a first-come first-served basis.

Updates
At the beginning, I am only promising an update every other day not including weekends (Monday, Wednesday, Friday), but updates may become daily if time permits. The game is mostly drawn (about 80%) so I will be using weekends in the beginning to draw the remaining scenes/characters. Once the end scenes have been drawn, updates will occur more frequently as previously described. Updates will occur in the evenings, around 10pm Central Time.

1st Question: Not at the beginning
2nd Question: The basic information in the first post is enough information to explain how the goblins know each other and their goal. However, if you enjoy Role Playing and creating a back story or adding to your goblin's personality, feel free. :D

So I'm guessing taking adventurer levels is not allowed because adventurers are bad, right?

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.

Tasty People speak Common.

Sure, take adventurer levels...then your clanmates don't have to travel as far to find an adventurer head :D

In all seriousness, no. No adventurer levels.
