    Default roll to dodge (accepting pre-sign-ups)

    IMPORTANT: time limit for posting has been reduced to 36 hours

    welcome to roll to dodge

    in tis game you create a character and once we have about 8, we will start. every time some kind of event happens and you have to pick a command for your character to prevent yourself to get into trouble. the last person standing wins.

    The action results are defined by a six-sided die roll:
    [1]: Epic Fail. Your efforts only worsened your situation.
    [2]: Fail. Your skills or luck were insufficient.
    [3]: Meager success: The situation didn't improve by as much as you have intended.
    [4]: Success: Your efforts were sufficient to achieve your goal.
    [5]: Epic Success: Your skills and luck have combined to ensure your success.
    [6]: Overshot: Your efforts were more than required for the goal's completion, and your luck is such that side-effects are inevitable.

    note that the more complicated your command is, the more likely it is to get a low roll

    you have 36 hours to post since the start of an event. once everyone has picked a command or the time is up I will post the results of the command and the next event. you know I'm a human so I might not get everything up in time but I will try ASAP. if people haven't posted at the time I post the next event they get some kind of punishment and don't get an extra command for the next event.

    you also have 10 health and 10 mentality.
    if your health becomes 0 you die. if you die you're out of the game.
    if your mentality becomes 4 or lower you will enter insanity mode:
    in this mode you roll a 12-sided dice instead of a 6-sided one.
    1-3 = Auto Death. 4-5 = Epic Fail. 6-7 = Fail. 8-10= Success. 11-12 MEGA OVERSHOOT!.
    a mega overshoot has even more insane and random side effects than a normal overshoot, for example if you planned to try jumping over a wall and you roll a 12 you might jump so high you get into space.
    you can also gain more mentality and go back to normal if you don't want to risk auto death or a too extreme mega overshoot or something.

    items:
    during your quest you may find helpful items. you can use them by mentioning them in your command, but be careful because if you get a low roll you might lose your item or get hurt. you can also use the items you assigned with your character in your sign-up. besides your sign-up items you may only have 5 items at a time. if you get more than that you need to leave excess items behind.

    status:
    you can get afflicted by positive or negative status conditions. for example, you might break your leg, causing any commands involving using your legs (like running) get a lower roll. or you can become twice as big, causing you to deal more damage and get more max HP till it wears off. however, you might not fit in holes you need to crawl into or you can accidentially trample your allies.

    allies:
    you might recruit allies during your quest. these will follow you on your quest and help you. some of these have HP and can be killed. they may also turn against you.

    rules:
    all sppf rules
    you have to be active, as mentioned before if you don't post a command 36 hours after the start of an event you'll get punished and lose your command
    put all rolls in bold
    you may carry a maximum of 5 items not including your starting items
    you may not edit your post, if you do your roll will automatically result into a 1
    NEW RULE: if you have any questions or comments about this game, please send it in a VM, don't post it within the thread


    here's the form for your character:
    Name: Your character's name.
    Gender: Your character's gender. Male, female, other, none.
    Backstory: You character's backstory. You aren't signing up for an RP so it shouldn't be three paragraphs long, but at least give something.
    Major skill(if applicable): A major skill that your character focuses around. A roll involving this skill will be easier on the character. Keep it fitting with your character, a British policeman will not be a master with a gun.
    Minor skills(if applicable): 2-3 minor skills that your character has. These won't help as much as a major skill, but will help if one comes in handy. Keep it fitting with the character, your rebelious teen won't be speaking five languages.
    Equipment(if applicable): Starting equipment. Keep it reasonable.

    referees:
    me
    if you want to become a referee, tell me while signing up for a game and if you do well enough I'll accept you

        Spoiler:- example round::


    also, from now on, I'm accepting pre-sign-ups! just post in this thread with the filled-in character form found in the OP. for the next round I'm accepting a maximum of 10 players. when this round ends I'll send a PM/VM. people who have signed up for this round may also pre-sign-up. you may freely edit the post with the character form till the next round starts.

    pre-sign-up list:
    1. calin (trot away)
    2. OMNIGOAT (shattersoul)
    3. TCO (omegagoldfish)
    4. delila (queenunfezant)
    5. Brick (pancham4life)

    alright, so we're gonna start now!!

    you all appear in a small cave. there's totally nothing there apart from a few candles so there's light. there's an exit but it's blocked off by a large rock. you'll need to find some way to destroy the rock and get out of here.

    you get 48 hours to post your roll, good luck!

    monster guy and shattersoul: you have edited the post while the rules have clearly stated you're not allowed to, the next time you edit your post the roll automatically becomes a 1 and monster guy, please bold your rolls

    gwendolyn
    [roll 2]
    you used psyshock on the rock, but it wasn't affected at all. you got frustrated by this and lost 1 mentality.
    (-1 mentality)

    thanos
    [roll 3]
    you tried to find an alternate route but there was none.

    abel aimatos
    [roll 4]
    you wasn't detected all the time.

    ellie akiya
    [roll 4]
    you rolled the rock out of the path. the path is now free.

    code red
    [roll 5]
    you successfully powered up. you deal more damage for 5 turns.

    markus

    location: (new in green) you all appear in a small cave. there's totally nothing there apart from a few candles so there's light. there's an exit but it's blocked off by a large rock. you'll need to find some way to destroy the rock and get out of here.

    you all get out of the cave. there are 4 doors. there are no other exits so you must enter one of the doors. a maximum of 2 players can enter the same door. each door must be entered by at least 1 player. first come, first serve. you need to post which door you will enter (door 1, 2, 3 or 4) along with your roll (you don't need to bold your door choice)

    enemies: (new in red) each other

    other: (new in blue) you spot a skeleton in the place with the 4 doors. it holds a sword, shield and helmet.

    you get 48 hours to post, if you don't post in time I will randomly pick a door that isn't already picked by 2 players

    ref comments:
    wow, I didn't expect the rolls to be so poor
    gwendolyn: fail but focus blast would be more effective
    thanos: I didn't really plan to include any alternate routes
    abel: why pick that as a roll if there are no enemies at all and the players don't even bother attacking each other?
    ellie: I planned the rock to be stuck in place and unmovable but since no one else succeeded in destroying it and you got a decent roll I allowed it anyaway
    code red: you got the best roll of all players, nice
    markus: oww, better luck next time but I give a hint: check the ''others'' section

    also remember, I use a RNG to determine the rolls so if you get a 1 3 times in a row it's bad luck

    gwendolyn
    [roll 5]
    you simply took the shield then entered door 1. you quickly managed to block code red's wave of cyber energy with the shield.
    (shield obtained)

    thanos
    [roll 6]
    you cut off the skull and took its helmet. then the skull suddenly came to life and asked you if you could put its head back on its body. you did and the skeleton joined you. however, he only has a sword now. the skeleton followed you while you entered door 2. you also got hit by code red's wave of cyber energy but the helmet reduced the damage.
    (-1 health, skeleton joined, helmet obtained)

    abel aimatos
    [roll 1]
    you found totally nothing useful except for a spider who bit you. you're now poisoned. every time you roll a 1 or 2 you will take 1 damage. the poisoning wears off when you roll a 6. then you ran away from the spider and entered door 4. you also got hit by code red's wave of cyber energy.
    (-4 health, poisoned)

    ellie akiya
    [roll 2]
    while thanos cut the skull off the skeleton it came to life and joined thanos, taking its sword with it. you enter door 2 empty-handed. you also got hit by code red's wave of cyber energy.
    (-2 health)

    code red
    [roll 6]
    you dealt 2 damage to everyone in the room with your wave of cyber energy. you also destroyed a wall revealing a chest. you opened it and it contained a magic ring. it halves mentality loss. then you entered door 3.
    (magic ring obtained)

    markus
    [roll 5]
    you just threw the broken sword. it hit a hidden switch revealing another treasure chest which contained an axe. you picked it up. it now belongs to your starting items since you had no weapon and thus doesn't count toward your item limit. then you entered door 3. you also got hit by code red's wave of cyber energy.
    (-2 health, axe obtained)

    location: (new in green) you all appear in a small cave. there's totally nothing there apart from a few candles so there's light. there's an exit but it's blocked off by a large rock. you'll need to find some way to destroy the rock and get out of here.

    you all get out of the cave. there are 4 doors. there are no other exits so you must enter one of the doors. a maximum of 2 players can enter the same door. each door must be entered by at least 1 player. first come, first serve. you need to post which door you will enter (door 1, 2, 3 or 4) along with your roll (you don't need to bold your door choice)

    door 1 leads to a grassland which may look innocent at first but carnivorous plants and slime monsters live there. gwendolyn is currently in this place.

    door 2 leads to a desert. you will lose 1 health every 2 turns here because of the heat. you need to find a oasis to heal. there are also some pyramids which might be worth exploring. thanos and ellie akiya are currently in this place.

    door 3 leads to a maze inhabited by ghosts. you need to find your way out of it. code red and markus are currently in this place.

    door 4 leads to the mushroom kingdom. I don't really need to say anything here: it's filled with stuff like goombas, koopa troopas, mushrooms, coins and ? blocks. abel aimatos is currently in this place.


    enemies: (new in red)
    in room 1: carnivorous plants which bite people who come near and might poison you. they have 6 health. slime monsters which have 8 health.
    in room 3: ghosts which have 7 health each
    in room 4: goombas, koopas and spinies. the goombas have 5 health, koopas and spinies have 6. jumping on goombas will instantly kill them, koopas will hide in their shell when jumped on. if you jump on a spiny you'll take damage.


    other: (new in blue)
    in room 1: there's a house in the grassland that might be worth a visit.
    in room 2: there are pyramids in the desert and an oasis somewhere. you can heal there.
    in room 4: there are coins and ? blocks.
