Perplexicon: A New Arena

Welcome to Perplexicon: A New Arena (obviously based on Piecewise's Perplexicon).

This is my first time GMing anything. And I don't have much in the way of writing skills or creativity. Which means this is probably going to crash and burn in less than 5 10 pages soon when you guys get bored of it.

Perplexicon: A New Arena - The Fallen
« Reply #2 on: September 10, 2014, 02:32:27 pm »

The Fallen

Current death count - 35

SaberToothTiger/Stanislauss Y. Hurt - Bled out after getting his lungs stabbed by Simon.
Dermonster/Real!Derm - Got instakilled by radiation from his failed spell.
Beirus/Beirus - Was in the same room as Real!Derm while he failed his spell. Radiation is bad.
akkudakku/Simon - Was above Real!Derm while he failed his spell. Irradiated to death.
SalsaCookies/Bert - Had a heart attack caused by the Inactivity Syndrome.
SaberToothTiger/Stuffed Steffen - Charred to death by Varee and Thrakor.
Varee/Varee - Suicide by GM. Got irradiated to death.
SaberToothTiger/Yet Another Mook Sent to Death - Nearly melted off his own feet, fell unconscious, got thrown off a platform and then got his head chopped off by Fake!Derm.
werty892/Werty - Killed by Gigas, who broke a large glass spike Werty summoned earlier into shrapnel, ripping him to pieces.
Eotyrannus/E Ohtyr Anus - Got a hole burnt through his chest by Hregar.
Mallos/Horus - Set on fire, then cut in half by Thrakor.
Lost in Nowhere/Li - Got cut up quite badly by Fake!Derm, who then proceeded to fire a crystal spear which ripped Li's head off, while making a (somewhat) sexy pose.
superBlast/Gigas - Accidentally threw himself off the platform, nearly got his arm cut off by Beirus, tried to run away from the adamantine man, who then stabbed his vitals and cut his head in half once he lost consciousness.
4maskwolf/Mask - Suicide by GM. Got everything except for his head turned into lightning.
werty892/Werty - Got decked by Thrakor's bone-covered fist, who then proceeded to accelerate the aging of his face.
Scintillant/Scintillant - Got experimented on by Fake!Derm, whose actions made him get splattered on a wall.
swordsmith04/Hregar - Got into a very long fight with Beirus, which ended with him having to abandon his body to become a head spider in an attempt to escape. Beirus managed to catch him and gave him a bath in magma.
superBlast/Gigas - Suddenly dropped dead due to the Inactivity Syndrome.
Eotyrannus/E Ohtyr Anus - Fell face first on the ground, which lead to the breaking of it (and everything inside) - thanks to the Inactivity Syndrome.
Wolfkit/[maniacal laughter] - Had his last laugh as he was being ripped apart by a volley of crystal arrows summoned by Fake!Derm.
Generally me/Gertrude the edible - Suicide by GM. Turned into a zombie.
SaberToothTiger/Coward McGannigan - Got his arm cut off by Beirus. After a brief chase he ended up getting cut in half as well.
Andres/Lupus - Had so much things to keep track of that it made his head explode.
Delekates/Delekates - Decided that he's no match for the other players, causing body to turn inside out.
blazing glory/Starn Gundar - Got glued to the floor by Thrakor, who then threw a giant ball of lava on top of him.
ATHATH/The Manipulator - Had a plan to become the Arena itself. Got shattered by Beirus when "his ascension was assured". This death could be compared to an anticlimactic boss fight, methinks.
ATHATH/The Rogue - Had a plan to become the Arena itself. Had his arm turned into a zombie by Fake!Derm, got his legs cut off and then got stabbed through the head by Beirus when he was about to start ascending. This death could be compared to some mook masquerading for a boss, methinks.
FallacyofUrist/Oric - Got stabbed by Larnik in the throat, which led to his death. Took his revenge while in the grave by making Larnik burned so badly that he fainted.
swordsmith04/Larnik - Got blasted with a powerful fire spell by Oric, which caused him to faint a little later due to his burns while trying to dodge away from Fake!Derm. Got his head stabbed off.
Shaporia/Ser Kindle - Lost his !Science! and decided that life is no longer worth it. Performed a beautiful swan dive down into the Pit.
ATHATH/The Manipulator - Had a plan to become the Arena itself. Got turned into a statue by magic when trying to ascend. This death could be compared to a boss dying off-screen, methinks.
Toaster/Thrakor - One of the two beginning characters that survived past turn 50, was finally slain by Fake!Derm, who crushed his legs with magma and stabbed through his heart.
H4zardZ1/Redz Biltubacca - A failure during his experimentation caused him to become covered in a fluid that caused extremely rapid aging. He has now become part of the Arena and is serving his newfound role as dust proudly.
Illgeo/DRPA-001 "Nile" - Attempted to copy Derm by accidentally killing himself with radiation.
ATHATH/The Manipulator - Had a plan to become the Arena itself. Got turned into a chunky salsa by Fake!Derm while trying to ascend. This death could be compared to... uh... dammit, I'm running out of boss fight comparisons.

I blame Corsair's Perplexicon: The New Age, and me being a noob at GMing.

You have 1 more point.

Edit: Now that I thought about it some more, 19 points might be a bit too much. If you guys think so as well, I'll lower the starting amount to 10. Or 12.

He changed it already. And 19 is fine. It's fun. More murder, less accidental death from botched rolls.

But you can only murder someone if they botch their rolls.
