Fun Forum game

Postby cheeselovingtree on Fri Aug 22, 2008 7:54 am

Ok there's a bit to read but this is totally worth it. It's not D&D or some shit like that either.

The rules-
The rules are simple:
1. Post an action.
2. I will roll a six sided dice and tell you the outcome of your action.

If, by some odd twist of fate, something is flying towards you, you get a free roll to dodge it. If you die, you lose the game. You win if everybody else is dead.

Here is how the die rolls work out:
1- Epic Fail: Have you ever tried to do something and screwed it up so bad the the original situation is now 100 times worse? This is the Epic Fail. From setting off an alarm while trying to hack a computer to drowning in a glass of water you just tried to drink.
2- Failure: Whatever you just tried to do, you didn't.
3- Marginal Success: You did what you tried to do. Sort of. You attempted to read the book, but spaced out for a bit and just flipped the pages.
4- Success: You did what you were trying to do. This is to the letter of your post, so it may not give you an effective result.
5- Perfect Success: This follows the intent of your post. Bullets warp around you and the universe goes out of its way to help you.
6- Overshot: Hulk Smash! Your punches send people through walls. Whatever you wanted to do happens, but in the most straight forward way possible and with excessive force. Alternatively, it will be the most off-the-wall, reality-shifting thing I can think of.

You can virtually do anything, but be careful since you have a 50% chance of screwing it up. If you post multiple actions at once, only the first action will be taken. This will disregard all other actions and intent.

Also, if you attempt to take an action without an intermediate action (example, you try to wear a shirt you are not carrying) the action auto-fails. You can't take the same action twice in a row, and only the first action you submit before I post the results of every bodies actions will be resolved.

Example:
ME: You wake up on an enormous bed. There are several other people here. Your mind is hazy, and you can't remember anything about the last few days. You are extremely thirsty. You notice a single glass on a table at the far end of the room. You are unable to discern it's contents.
Player1: I crawl out of bed.
Me: Roll[2]. You flop around a little, groping several other people on the bed.
Player2: UGH! Get you hands off me! I kick Player1 in the face.
Me: Roll[6]. You seem to levitate over the bed for a few seconds, then shoot straight up towards the ceiling. You execute a perfect flip, your toes just brushing the roof, and snap one leg forward in time to connect with Player1's face. The force of your kick makes the bed explode. People go flying all over the room. Roll to Dodge[5]. Everyone missed hitting the glass.

Death: Eventually, you are going to Epic Fail that roll to dodge a shotgun blast to the face. Or you'll overshoot a tackle and dive through a 50th story window. The point is, you are going to die. You can keep posting after you die, but cannot take any more actions. Keep an eye out though, death may not be the end for everyone...

it's totally awesome.

Okay, starting post.
You wake up in a room, chained to a wall. On the ground below you is a library, and a table stacked high with books, 3 guns, a sword, 5 sponges, a cuddly toy. and even various narcotics. Looking around, you see the other forumites chained to the wall with you, and a caged tiger at one corner of the room. What do you do?

Now you post your action. When a bunch of you have done this I will roll to see what happens to all of us. If you want to join late you need an entrance so we know you're there. For example "I walk into the room." That counts as an action, so I roll to see how your entrance went.


My action- I try and pull the chains out of their sockets.

2: you accidentaly say something from The nearest KKK meeting instead. You get lynched by an angry mob of black people. Luckily, though, they busted up your chains.

6:The chains bust loose. in fact, the whole wall monty is on busts loose. Behind the wall is a gigantic 4 year old. Monty leaps into the air with it and molests it so hard it explodes. Monty lands. pieces of 4-year old are flying everywhere! Roll to dodge.

Me: (1) I get hit full on in the face with a bit of the 4-year old's thumb, shattering most of the bones in my face.
MEK: (4) You land unscathed.
Fulgrymm: (6) you are miraculously untouched. In fact, a bit of the 4-year old breaks your other chain.
Monty: (2) your ribs are broken by a piece of the 4-year old.

Actions this time.
I attempt to heal my arm and face.

I wrote: I attempt to heal my arm and my face

2: I'm only using one hand, and drop the bandages on to my toe, bruising it. the bandages clatter on to the floor out of my reach.
MEKofTheMEKkingdom wrote:I totally see if there is some sort of way out and not some.. sort of... force field...

4: You see a way out! There is a window.
Monty Montahue wrote:I rip open my sternum and then, using a roll of masking tape, attempt to fix my broken ribs.

That's pretty fucking badass.
3:You rip open your sternum and begin to fix your ribs. However, the pain is pretty fucking bad and you do a shoddy but passable job.
Fulgrymm wrote:Aight. I grab a gun and begin looking for a way out.

3: you pick up the gun, and you accidentaly misfire in the direction of (I used a random method to pick the forum member) me!

Roll to dodge
3: I dodge, and the bullet breaks the final chain holding me up. I fall down from the wall, so surprised I wasn't prepared for the impact, and break both my legs.
Fun fact: the only working limb I have left is one of my arms :smug:

ed atiln wrote:I try to enter the room by digging up to it all the way from Mole land.

5: you dig your way successfuly into the room. It is mind-blowingly awesome-looking.

My action this turn:
I reach for the bandages, (now within my reach) so I can heal myself.

me: (6) I grab the bandages and miraculously completely heal myself. There is barely a scratch.
Monty Montahue wrote:I erect a dispenser

(6) a dispenser is up and running, slowly giving health to all of us.
MEKofTheMEKkingdom wrote:I totally jump. :smug:

(4) You jump. nothing exciting happens.
Fulgrymm wrote:I take my badass unidentified gun and go with ed.

(Roll to decide what kind of gun it is-(5) it's a rifle.)
(1) You go to follow Ed, but slip on a bit of 4-year old, fall, and break your nose.

I grab the sword, and try to see what's in the next room.

(4) you do exactly that. You look out the window. There is a fifty-story drop outside.

I'd just like to point out that Ed being near a window makes him pretty vulnerable. Remember you win when everyone else is dead :smug:

My actions this turn:
I pick up one of the sponges.
