    Post A New Dawn [Combat Adventure / RPG / Full Dusk is upon you!]

    First of everything, i'd like to apologize for the entire mess this first post has eventually turned into. Dont mind it, just ask if there is anything; Else it should be possible to dig whatever information from it that you are looking for.

    Also, we are currently not officially accepting new players.

    ---

    So yeah, i figured i would make one of these. So i did!
    This is a mix between an adventuring game and Supernerds Defeat the ____ game. You will fill out a character sheet, and then proceed to battle a number of enemies for glory, spoils, and because you like killing things. You can create anything at all, although if you choose to be a big bad dragon, it is more likely you will be a small, cute dragon. Make your own character, and fight the evil enemies!
    I will use a D20 (20 sided die) to roll actions.

    PLEASE NOTE THAT I WILL TAKE CARE OF ALL THE TECH STUFF. THE PLAYER WILL ONLY NEED TO SPECIFY WHAT THEY WANT AND BLAH BLAH, AND IT SHALL BE SO.

    Please delete the various extras (#'s and ( )'s, thank you.)
    Character sheet
    *: Optional
    #: Required

    Players:
    1: Riou Hawkeye (Riou)
    2: Ziras (Ziras)
    3: Redas (SarcredSleuth)
    4: Remah (Unknown_Entity)
    5: Kyllik (Tseralith)
    6: --- (Kicked for inactive)
    7: Somye (BlazerC)
    8: Tavareiss Faradone (Wiseguy)
    9: Corvid (wardengreen)
    HOSTILES:
    1: Aconi (Sjasogun)
    2: Dynem (Zefferen)

    EDIT INSERT # HERE
    Lots of people! Lots!
    *grumble*
    Too many, really.
    Anyway, there is now a HOSTILE TEAM. No more players are accepted on the protagonist team, so if y ou want to join, you shall be HOSTILE. Unless you choose to simply wait on the waiting list.
    Hostile characters gain some benefits, but there are not as many of them. If you like killing the good guys, nows your chance.

    Yeah to hell with above statement

    Waiting list:
    1:
    2:

    EDIT: It will be possible to 'level up'. At some point, i will simply declare that everyone gains some extra hp and / or a skill, special ability, or stat.
    Also, stats stack, but not skills

    EDIT II: Some rules are very loose, such as what you can do and so. If you figure that you would rather hit something a deal harder, then specify it so and it shall be so - but at the cost of hit chance or something equal. In theory, ye can all cast spells and perform other shenaniganz, although i would recommend you just went with what you picked. The only exception is healing - you need either the wisdom, ego or intelligence stat to cast healing spells.

    EDIT III: I am very sorry for the darned mess on this page. Just kinda live with it?

    EDIT IV
    A note on skills
    Skills can be basically anything that gives you a bonus to something, or is a passive of some sort. You can even pick a skill that enhances your special ability! Try to get creative??
    A note on special abilities
    Special abilities are a way of saying 'I GET TO PWN THINGS'. You can pick something with ridiculous high damage but a long cooldown, or vice versa. The base effect power of a special ability is 350, plus one additional effect if it has a cooldown of 8. An 'additional effect' can be something such as life steal, or aoe. If there is no additional effect, the damage of the ability is increased a little deal.
    In addition, any special ability that would normally have missed get a +5 bonus to the roll, since it is extremely boring to miss as such. This only occurs when it would have missed, though.

    EDIT V
    Please be aware of the fact that i will take care of all the tech stuff - ie, calculating damage, bluh bluh and bluh. All the players need to do is manage their abilities and so forth in a way that makes sense, and post their actions, and that is that. If you are scared off by the unnecessarily complicated dice or what, then i tell you this
    Dont
    Be

    Got it?

    I've also chosen to include a SAMPLE CHARACTER with this edit, for whatever reason. Here goes.

    Name: Azoras Vashya
    Race: Alternian Troll
    Gender: Male
    Primary Stat: Wisdom (+3 to all helpfull abilities)
    Skills: Twohanded swords (+2 to damage with twohanded swords), Spontaneous healing (+3 to healing roll with healing spells cast only every fourth turn), Shatter-void (Whenever his special ability ends, Azoras immediately does 75 damage to all enemies in sight.)
    Special Ability: Sword and Void
    Azoras enters a state of the unfettered mind, causing him to deal 50 extra damage, be incapable of missing, and decreases the chance he is hit by 2. This lasts for 3 turns and does not take any time to activate. Has a cd of 8.
    Title: DM's Sample Character
    Description: My avatar
    Bio: I would link you to my trollslum page if i thought you cared.

    Edit VI

    I've decided to make just one more spot open because the party needs a healer. Anybody who applies MUST BY RIGHT APPLY AS A HEALER. Sorry to disappoint, if that is the case.


    Edit VII
    Game closed again. We are now a total of 10 people who give shit about this game. Yay!

    Edit IIX
    BlazerC has submitted fanart!




    Edit IX
    And thus i finally make everyones stats public.




    E X:
    Oh yeah, by the way. When i first started this, i failed horribly at my own updates, thus, if you are actually reading though this, please keep in mind that the first few pages are probably pretty shitty. They get better later on, though.

    I definitely did not start the defeat the ____ battles!

    Re: Another Day, Another Battle, Another Adventure

    THIS GAME STARTZ NAW, even though Riou absconded. Bluh, atleast Redas gets to take an action? Maybe?

    You are standing in a sunny meadow. To one side, theres a bunch of trees, and apparently a forest beyond and over. Ahead of you, the meadow stretches into the horizon. You were here to meet a questgiver, who would set you on a quest of some sort. You are not sure, you did not pay attention when you were told as much.

    even the trees

    Re: Another Day, Another Battle, Another Adventure

    You try to kill Riou.
    I will now roll for your common sense.

    Nah, you just sorta kill some of the trees and the grass. You go about your shenaniganz for a while, then...
    two unicorns appear behind you. Suddenly they just stand there.

    The one to the right speaks.
    "Reeeedaaas! Riiiioou! You are to go on a quest, to the mountain of fire! To find the purple umbrella! The purple umbrella, Reeeedas!"

    ((Yes, i just did that to you.))

    ACCEPTED.

    A shadowy figure stands at the edge of the woods. He is undetected by the other two, although the Shadow himself has a nasty feeling that the unicorns know he is there.

    You hit the one to the left. It explodes in a comical fashion as if it were made of paper. Something hard hits your back.
    Yes, a unicorn is standing on you. And you are lying down. It is worth mentioning that it is the same one.
    "Reeeeedaaaass, you must go an an adventure to the mountain of fire!"
    "Reeeeeeeeeeeedaaaas."
    Sanity: 90%


    You guys just tell me whether i should be more or less silly. For now i am in silly mode, however. Fear it.

    (Try to be a little less silly?)
    The Shadow quickly whips over, using one of his 10 throwing knives (can has?) to fling it at a unicorn, aiming for the throat. (Counts as a small weapon, right?)

    The unicorns both disappear into thin air just as the knife leaves your hand. It settles into the grass a little bit behind Redas.
    A spooky voice speaks from apparently nowhere. It sounds as if the speaker is moving away at a quick pace, the way the second half of the sentence comes out.
    "The mountain of fireeee...!"
    In the distance, just opposed to where the forest is placed, a giant, huge mountain suddenly looms. It wasnt there before, hell if it was. The jagged peak is surrounded by a nimbus of red light, surely the result of something burning.
    You figure this is the mountain the unicorns babbled about.
    Redas gets up. Yes.

    Why the hell would I listen to those unicorns? I go and retrieve my thrown knife, hide them up my "sleeve" where I can fling them from later. I will then go in search of a town.
