Roll for the player above you: Redux
« on: November 14, 2017, 02:27:14 pm »

The last one died ):

Lets try this again!

Standard 6 sided die rule: 1 is 'complete fail', 6 is 'overdid it'.

Example:
Quote
I revive Roll for the player above you

[1] Your attempt gets annihilated on the way to the server.

I always roll a 6

[4] Somewhat successful. It only counts in another universe.

I attempt to revive Roll for the player above you.

[3] Well, it's here. No way of knowing how long it'll last.

Create some kind of proper RTD; a dungeon crawl, for now.

You are succesful, you have a decently sized group of people who are interested in playing, possibly to many for you to GM, and it has custom species and classes with randomly generated but thematically appropriate abilities

However in doing so you notice a trend with your worlds events that leads you to believe you may in fact be living in an RTD. This taxes your mind heavily, knowing that even the most inane action could have dire consequences, and that you exist only for anothers entertainment.

[2] you become a gnome urchin, which is to say you live in someone's garden begging for money and food. It's a hard life, and you're fed up of it. You are far from rascally too.

become the first boss of the dungeon crawl RTD, a giant insectoid that summons zombified people via parasitic larva planted in their heads.

Congrats! You are the first boss.

Specifically, you're the tutorial boss.
Your zombies are weak, and their sole purpose is to provide predictable enemies that new players can test out the mechanics on. You yourself are an easy fight, too; your HP is low, your only attack is summoning more of these weak zombies, and so on and such forth. Players just strong enough to complete the tutorial take to farming you for money and summoning items. The zombies they can make with these are at least twice as strong as your own.

Now, create the dungeon! It will be infinite - in fact, it will be set in the Infinity Mansion! Yes! It's perfect!
Get lost, my players! Get hopelessly lost!

[1] You make a very finite hut. A boss in the form of a 1 hp goblin gimmick lives inside. Getting lost is literally impossible

Build a bandwagon for people to jump on. give it a time machine.

Well, since I've been replaced by a goblin, I guess my becoming a tutorial boss is invalidated.

[6] your bandwagon time machine turns out to be a bandwagon reality-hopper. As such, one of the first things you do is land in my boss room (which is in an actual dungeon where I am not a tutorial boss) and end up with me putting a maggot in your head, which starts eating your brain and turning you into a zombie.

Level up a couple of times and learn some fighting moves since 1hp goblin dude took my place as tutorial boss.

Eh. Well, you didn't die, but you've had to run from the fights you've found yourself in. You're going to need to find a lower-level area if you want to level up... which is probably going to be hard. May I suggest whaling on the goblin for a while?

Try salvaging my failing RTD. Maybe we can try a more Undead Hunt-esque game this time?

EDIT: Just so you guys know... first post? I fudged the roll. :p
Didn't have a die-roller available, and it just seemed to be appropriate for the action.

The attempt fails in a dramatic fashion that forever discredits you in the eyes of the Forum. The resulting avalanche of hate forces Toady to assign moderators and push back the next DF release.

I end this game.

[2] you fail to stop the game, as you are not the one who started it.

farm the 1 Hp goblin for levels using my zombie minions to help!

Well, the goblin's been farmed alright. Problem is, you used your zombie minions to farm it... and they were the ones that got the XP.

They don't want to be your minions anymore.

Pass the RTD off to someone competent (not Ghazkul) and make a character myself.

The person you hand it off to turn out to be Tiruin! Your character is nice and rounded.

I learn RTD and Mafia knowledge from somebody.

You find a lot of dragon themed loot and a new party member

Smoke Mirrors has joined the party!
