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:
: Epic Fail. Your efforts only worsened your situation.
: Fail. Your skills or luck were insufficient.
: Meager success: The situation didn't improve by as much as you have intended.
: Success: Your efforts were sufficient to achieve your goal.
: Epic Success: Your skills and luck have combined to ensure your success.
: 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
