Dark lord RTD
« on: August 26, 2011, 04:43:20 pm »

Hmm... I think it's time I make another of these. Slightly more complicated rules than usual though! Essentially, while success/failure is still determined by a simple die roll, skills and items do not give bonuses to that roll(Usually. Some things will give +1s, but never more than that. and even that is rare) Instead, skills give you extra abilities that can modify your roll in a number of ways. ie: Say you have the skill "Marksman". By mentioning you wish to use the skill in your post, you can take a -1 to your damage roll, in exchange for +1 to hit. (Items work similarly, though their effects MUST be applied when using them, instead of being optional)
Spoiler: couple other examples (click to show/hide)

Setup: You all are recent graduates of a prestigious academy. The place teaches everything from swordfighting to magic, and has turned out a number of successful graduates. Oh, and the faculty insists it's a coincidence that 90% of those graduates tried to take over the world. Your group in particular has received an old abandoned tower with minimal furnishings as a graduation gift. Clearly this has NO connections to world domination plans. Nope. None at all.

Name: Bob B. Boberton (Goes by Robert the Terrible)
Inventory: Incendiary sticks, Fire proof clothing
Skills: Pyromancer, Burn proof, Great chef
A bit of backstory if you want: Bob was a young man who enjoyed setting things on fire, he did so at an alarming rate, his fires to date cost him 3 carpets, 1 cat, 3 chickens, 8 chairs, two tables, 1 great aunt, 1 fully furnished home, and 68 suits of clothing. He came to the academy to learn to control his talent with fire, while he never liked his great aunt it was a cautionary tale. One of these days he'll vaporize someone he likes.

Name: Shargas
Inventory: Bone Staff, Jet Ring
Skills: Life Eater, Soul Eater, Dream Eater
A bit of backstory if you want: Shargas is a clearly human necromancer with unusually sharp teeth and completely white eyes, which obviously doesn't mean a thing. He showed a particular interest in some of the more ambitious, wide-ranging, and in some cases permanent aspects of necromancy (and power in general), which sat quite well with his instructors for reasons not relating to world domination in the slightest.

Name: Robid Hoon
Inventory: Bow and Arrow, Green Hat
Skills: Archery, Stealth, Learned Economist
Bio: When Hoon was a child, he would always go into the woods, and pretend that he and a band of men would slay foolish tyrants, save stranded damsels, and make the peasants lives better. However, when he was shipped off to school, he like all the other children in Nommingham had to take economics and he quickly realized that the only way the economy worked was on the backs of the poor, and that stealing money was counterproductive in the long run. However, it was during this time that some guy in a green hat and peasant clothes with a bow robbed him at arrow-point, and from then on Robid Hoon developed a distinct dislike for the lower classes. In the academy, he studied  archery and adopted a green hat just like his assailant, but he promised himself that he would steal from the rich to pay himself, and make the peasants pay for their insolence.

Turn 1:
Well, the graduation ceremony is over, and your group has moved into their new tower. It's a bit bland, and the land around it contains a few too many flowers, but it'll do for now. It's even got a decent sized dungeon and a throne room. No throne yet, but hey, details. Now, time to get to work putting everything you have learned to use...
