RTD horrors 2: Finish him. game 1 turn 22
« on: December 06, 2015, 11:52:34 pm »

A parallel game for RTD horrors to ease the strain a bit.
My first time as RTD GM, Most of this is copied ad-verbatim from the original. Also inviting anyone from game 4 who wants less crowd, cultists and such will be kept.

Unlike the other game all turns will be done at once so players can interfere with one another equally.



You are an eldritch horror from beyond the rift, one of many. You spy with your power a world full of beings, easy to persuade and willing to serve one such as you. You must reach this world and have it for your own, by any means necessary.

Rules:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Rolls:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Making a horror:
character sheet:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Blank sheet:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Abilities should have a dash beside them like so: "-Floaty:Can float" or  "Abilities: As a floaty from the land of floaty it can float and drift."
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Standard RTD rolls determine outcomes of things, but, for example, if a weakling horror tries to wrestle a strong horror, they have to succeed more than one roll to get an advantage before actually winning.

The game ends when:
1) there is a winner:

2)The cascade completes
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Anyone want to play? I'll accept 6, go beg Aslandus after it's full. Or just beg I suppose, the limit is just for sanity reasons anyhoo.

Edit: Stuff that's been added:

Waitlist:

Think that's everything.
One thing to note is that cultist numbers can go much higher and will be needed. For example making a large nuclear bunker would need... let's say ~2000 cultists with construction equipment and materials, but only 20 with money would be needed to buy a old out-of-the-way farm. Also training and supplies in general will be more important.
I did not look hard through all the tabs to edit them.
The rules are not absolute, if something would happen in a situation then it happens, death is final though.

For inspiration

Name:Tax Goat™
Abilities: The Tax Goat, as the Elder God of Possession and Repossession, has the ability to repossess anything within 50 feet of itself, including friendship, these items are returned to the eldritch wilds. It can also split it's essence in multiple pieces, making it so that it can be in more then one place at a time.
Appearance: The Tax Goat is a humanoid goat creature, with Brown and White fur, and Black horns, it possesses one thing that normal goats don't, thumbs!
Homeworld:The Eldritch Wilds, a place that is much more based on the power of expectation then the material plane.
Story: The Tax Goat was created when a particularly greedy eldritch business cow attempted to summon an elder God, and promptly got his life repossessed.
Goal: To gain everything of value from this planet called Earth, he doesn't need to be king, he just needs the money! (Pronounced E-Arth.)

-Malignant Presence:0

What?
You can play if that's what you are asking.

Naa... that comment is pretty much perfect.

Nice, slightly generic yet well done. I assume that since you have any appeal at all you will be hiding your true goals?
"Etc." short for etcetera, more of the same, used in replacement of text that the observer should be able to deduce from what's presented and/or of no importance. atleast thats what I think it means, what does it mean?

Re: RTD horrors 2: A new r̶i̶p̶o̶f̶f̶ beginning - game 1 3/6 players.

Power is way too low, you could take 1 from presence and appeal, you might take a second from presence and put it in mindlock or something as you don't seem to have any passive effects.
Also the universe is a big place, I would scale it down a little (just the planet or the solar system), or are you going to move in the heavy construction equipment and spend the next few billion years shifting galactic superclusters into tasteful shapes?
Also why 2 appeal? No no not complaining just curious, I can imagine: "FINALLY a revenorator(how do you spell that?), we have black holes the size of a fist! And the moon, it's sorta dull don't you think? Just a big rock really, it needs some color, some pizazz."

Also Goat? How did you get 2 appeal? Just promises of huge gobs of cash?

Oh, because of the fact that you receive 50% discount on "Taxes" so instead of you getting taken, that Half-Man that took up residence in the tiny bed won't bother you any more... And because the government REALLY likes their taxes!

So your excuse is that just that many people want to watch the world burn?... ok
I just got some cool ideas if you roll well on recruiting.

Oh, because of the fact that you receive 50% discount on "Taxes" so instead of you getting taken, that Half-Man that took up residence in the tiny bed won't bother you any more... And because the government REALLY likes their taxes!
What the H(eldritch wilds)L do you mean? what tiny bed? which half man?
I will start the game tomorrow evening if nobody else comes ok?

And finally I can't seem to get my profile pic to display, any suggestions?
There's a lot of question marks?

It appears to be the evening of tomorrow:
Several extra dimensional intelligences spy a vast magma sphere, the top layer has cooled and some lifeforms seem to inhabit the surface of it, a more gullible variety seems to have developed a civilization. Several extra dimensional intelligences shout "DIBS!". Several extra dimensional intelligences glare at one another.
