Looter's Delight, Flabort Edition: FoU up to 2 player kills!
« on: August 08, 2017, 10:23:30 pm »

You are somewhere strange. Perhaps you were on your daily jog and turned the corner onto a street you've never seen, or you went through a door that was never there before, or you simply woke up here, but you have never seen this place in your life. It does have a strange feeling of familiarity, despite the alien landscape of groaning purple trees that turn to look at you, hyperactive orange grass shaking itself to warn you off whenever you step on it, islands floating in the endless sky with a void below, and cylindrical buildings that walk around on spindly legs.

Except for you, this place seems empty of people - it is clear people have been here, but there don't seem to be any now. A path extends before you, and you are drawn to follow it. Eventually, it leads you to  a dusty town; many buildings ruined, toppled onto their sides and broken open, with only a few meandering between their fallen fellows. One such building has light coming from it.

You climb up inside it, and find a glowing terminal, it's alien text perfectly legible for an unknown reason. "Hero who has found this place, you are destined for battle. Not far from here is an arena where other heroes and villains gather, to do battle for glory and loot! Place your hand upon this screen to seal the contract, and receive your first artifact. Upon reception of your loot, you will be transported by this vessel to the arena, where you may start slaying your foes and receiving more loot. For Glory!"

You are confused, but when you place your hand in the indicated space, the console fills with details about yourself, before going dim. You look up, and see gathered waiting in the same building a smattering of other "heroes" sitting on a bench. You feel the building lurch, and start moving towards it's destination...




Welcome to my take on a Looter's Delight game. As always when I run a game, it will be far more complicated than needs be. That said, you probably already know the basic rules: Most actions on a six sided die, modified by your skills. Take actions each turn towards trying to kill your opponents or towards surviving longer than them. Killing an opponent earns you a random piece of loot, which helps make you more powerful. Kill ten or more opponents, and you win - you may then choose to exit the game, or keep in the game and go for a high score.

But then that's where my twist comes in. Your skills are influenced by your hand, which is in turn based on your deck. At the end of each turn (and at the start of the game) your character will have 5 cards drawn from your deck, which you'll be able to expand by killing opponents or NPCs. This hand of 5 cards will let you know the skills you will have for the next turn. Cards from your hand get shuffled right back into the deck before drawing new cards. Some cards may also have abilities which you could use instead.

Furthermore, loot is generated from a Publicly Sourced list of items, modifiers, things, and other words. You can contribute to the list, sticking to the guidelines below, though when loot is generated it may not be interpreted exactly as you intended, especially for more abstract things.

Character Sheet
Name: Your character's name.
Description: A brief description. Not their life story, but a sentence to a paragraph is fine.
Stats: Your unmodified stats, before cards. You can put a + in a stat by putting a - in another stat, maximum ++ or --.
  • Strength (Attacking in melee, lifting heavy things, etc)
  • Dexterity (Attacking in range, using small tools, etc)
  • Agility (Going first, avoiding attacks, etc)
  • Endurance (Surviving attacks that hit, or harsh environs)
  • Willpower (Using magic items, magic cards, etc)
  • Luck (Gives better loot, cannot put -s into this although cards can give -s)
Spoiler: Deck (click to show/hide)

The Cards
Remember, you may have no more than 4 copies of a single card. You gain a card in your deck whenever you kill an NPC or a Player. You may opt out of adding a card to your deck.
Spoiler: available at all times (click to show/hide)

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.

I'm giving out free hypnosis sessions on Discord. DM for details! I'm always looking for talented and/or bizarre subjects! You'll never know how talented you are until you try!

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.
