Roll to God: Waitlist open. (Assuming the world survives)
« on: April 03, 2017, 05:08:59 pm »

Spawn as Johiah


You spawn as Johiah!

Create simple rules and description!

You create simple, easy to understand rules!

Ok so this is the part you should know if you want to play:
You are a God. Kill the other Gods.
You can create creatures. A roll to create is out of 10, each of your created creatures adds a -1 to your rolls.
Each stat added to your creature is 1 more roll cost, IE: Monster Hydra of Death: 1 health, 1 attack, and one move speed, is 3 or higher to succeed.
P1 is player 1, P2 is player 2, and their created creatures would be 11 and 21, respectively. To create more powerful creatures you can "ascend", which requires a roll of 8 or higher. each ascension adds one to each of your stats, and a +1 to creation rolls. That's about it. This is a social experiment to see how quickly this falls apart. I will play in an attempt to keep it under control. To play, just ask to be spawned.
Oh yeah, creatures in combat can only attack once per turn, and whoever rolls higher moves first. Tie is broken by movement speed, and then a reroll.
Creatures can be ranged, but a 1 roll point cost per tile of range is added.


P1: Johiah (Health: 1/1, Defense: 1, Attack: 1, Move Speed: 1)

  |1|2 |3|4|5|
A|O|O|O|O|P1|
B|O|O|O|O|O|
C|O|O|O|O|O|
D|O|O|O|O|O|
E|O|O|O|O|O|

I created this to see how long it takes before the community turns it to chaos.
Some other rules are that to move you say "creature 11 to cell A1"
Creatures controlled by P1 start with 1 and then the creature number (Ie 11)
P2 has 21
etc.
etc.
Stats modifying rolls with bonuses or maluses need 2 points to succeed (Ie Cultist: Health: 1/1, Defense: 0, Attack: 0, +2 to summoner rolls is a 5 or higher to succeed on a 10 sided die.)

On another note, Standoff is a game I'm running. Ever want to kill someone with your very own Stand? You've come to the right place.

Aaron Blaez, Chroniqler, spawning in at E3. Let's try summoning in something basic to start with...

Let's get the Dovahkiin. A Khajiit. One that only just learned fus.

Is your role just to +1 whatever Glass says.
Yep, as ever, I bestow upon Glass the expected +1
I'm gonna say we go with whatever Glass's idea is.

None

The world trembles as you blaze into existence!

Creatures:
21: Fleshy Blob: Health: 1/1, Defense: 0, Attack: 0, Move Speed: 0

The world trembles as you... chronicle? your way into existence!
You attempt to create a dovahkiin, and fail utterly! A fleshy blob fleshes around... (1+1=2. 6 needed)
You did not specify statistics, so I am making it rather basic to start with.

(I will try to update daily)

Sir Lootington spawning in at E5.

Create a tophat monster with as balanced stats as are possible.

I spawn in the top-right corner (A5) and conjure a cat (low health and defense, but good at dodging attacks) at A4.

Work on a potential forum game for my return to Bay12. Figure out parts that puzzled me before. Find more things to figure out that I can't. Work on another game instead of solving them. Get distracted and stop working. Remember it a week or two later. Remember I'm still on hiatus. Illogically, Be too ashamed to return yet. Repeat ad nauseam.

Finally have a game completely ready. Wait a week before posting it out of laziness.

It can't move or attack? Huh.
Imbue it with the ability to move.
I move over to E2, and if the blob can move I shift it down to E3.

EDIT: scratch that. Rewrite the sketchy blob out of existence, and try to make that Dovahkiin Khajiit again. At E3. He should have good move and dodge, but low attack and health. As he should have fus, that should manifest as a knockback projectile-type attack that stuns the target if they hit an edge of the arena.
I still move over to E2.

C |O|O|O|O|O| O|O|
D |O|O|O|O|O| O|O|
E|O|O|O|P2|21|O|P4|


P1: Crazyabe: Level 1 (Health: 1/1, Defense: 1, Attack: 1, Move Speed: 1, +1 to creation and ascension rolls, and +1 to ascension cost)
Creatures:
None

You, uh, stand there.

P2: (Glass) Aaron Blaez, Chroniqler: Level 1 (Health: 1/1, Defense: 1, Attack: 1, Move Speed: 1, +1 to creation and ascension rolls, and +1 to ascension cost)
Creatures:
21: Dovahkiin Khajiit: Health: 1/1, Defense: 0, Attack: 1, Move Speed: 2, Special Power: Fus (Knocks an enemy back one tile)

You recycle the blob to help make the dovahkiin (5 needed, 3+1=4+1 for recycle=5), and move to E2, while the dovahkiin is in E3.
(Move speed and dodge are the same thing.)

P3: OceanSoul: Level 1 (Health: 1/1, Defense: 1, Attack: 1, Move Speed: 1, +1 to creation and ascension rolls, and +1 to ascension cost)
Creatures:
31: Cat: Health: 2/2, Defense: 0, Attack: 2, Move Speed: 6

(10+1=11)
Critical success! All of the stats of your cat are doubled!
Oh, and you purred into existence, much like a fancy car.

P4: (Tankkit) Sir Lootington: Level 1 (Health: 1/1, Defense: 1, Attack: 1, Move Speed: 1, +1 to creation and ascension rolls, and +1 to ascension cost)
Creatures:
41: Top hat monster: Health: 1/1, Defense: 1, Attack: 1, Move Speed: 1

You walk onto the board, leaning on your cane and tilting your hat to the competition.
You start simple, a nice top hat monster. Basically looks like a shorter slenderman with a top hat. (5 needed, 5+1=6 rolled)

A mysterious force does something somewhere

Give a tip of the hat to Sir Lootington with the black riding hat that spontaneously appeared on my head when he arrived and brought hatness to this game. "Willing to declare truce until such time that we are not on top of each other?"

Attempt to create a wall from C2 to C5; move self to E1 and Dovahkaaz (that means dragon Khajiit in TES dragon language, and is the proper way to refer to a Dovahkiin Khajiit (not that they would necessarily agree)) to E2.

Also, try to add another move speed to the Dovahkaaz.

While doing all of this, pray to the omniscient and omnipotent Random Number Gods that give us lesser deities/demigods our power, and request an mere additional +1 to this humble attempt at defense.

Attempt to create a wall from C-1 to C5; move self to E1 and Dovahkaaz (that means dragon Khajiit in TES dragon language, and is the proper way to refer to a Dovahkiin Khajiit (not that they would necessarily agree)) to E2.

Also, try to add another move speed to the Dovahkaaz.
Doing that would require a roll of 9 or higher. One for each wall, then two for the move point. You get a +1 for being level 1, but still, 8 is a tall order.
