Post subject:  Housepets! Forum Roll to Dodge Game

Welcome, one and all, to the very (technically*) first Housepets! Forum Roll to Dodge (hencforth HPRTD) game! The rules are simple; "each player submits an action, and the GM rolls a six-sided die to determine the result of each player's efforts. There are six levels of success, depending on the number rolled." And what's that I hear you not-asking? "What are the possible oucomes?" Well, I'll tell you, even though you most likely know!

[1]! Epic Fail! Like tryin' to pull the sword from the stone, except the sword shatters!
[2]! Failure! You just can't pull it out.
[3]! Partial Success! It breaks, but it's still around dagger-sized! Plese note the exact degree of success depends on the GM.
[4]! Success! Du-nah-nah-NAAAH! You got it out!
[5]! Great Success! You pull it out with such a fashion, you get a +1 for three rolls, or until you discard the sword!
[6]! Overshoot! You pull so hard, the rock flies into your face, KOing you, and it's still stuck in the rock! Ehh... Stone sword get, at least...

Now then, let's get started...

*See DESTROY THE WALL and DESTROY THE WALL 2: WALL'S REVENGE

Spheniscin: [4] As you peer into the coding, the text editor closes. For shame, Spheniscine. You should know better than to bite the hand that gives you a present. However, just so this doesn't happen again, I will extend some, as you say, "slack". Character limit raised to "15" for all embers and members!

Esko: [FREE] As you submit the form, a question forms in your mind. You ask the program why it wants the information, and how you attained your currency.
The world I am about to show you may indeed be grand,but it is far from safe. You are being asked these questin in order to prepare you for the dangers you will soon face. The money? Well... Let's not hang lampshades.

Aaron Mio: [3] You sit on it, but it's more uncomfortable than the chair you were sitting in.

Aqua: [UNPOSSIBLE] Text appears on the monitor you're sitting at.
The doors have been one-wayed. Escape is unpossible. But soon, as soon as the one who has not posted in the topic here appears, we shall begin our journey.

~~~
A strange whirring starts coming from the moniters, and more forms appear.

What are you? (Human/Other [specify])
Describe yourself?
Do you henceforth agree that all injury sustained is the fault of the inflictor, and you are not eligible to sue, no matter how severe the injury? (Yes/Duh/Um... I guess?/The only options are yes, so it doesn't matter./Objection? OVERRULED!)

Yehoshua
Fire that sprouts from my body and I control
Please read above answer
Yes.

Second form

I'm a folf, it's a fox and wolf hybrid.
I have mostly the body and musculature of a wolf, the fluffy tail of a fox and orange fur that sometimes gets annoying because it's hard to be subtle when you're orange.

I will not sue anyone for any injury I take, I prefer to return the injury even though I won't because people tell me I'm a nice guy.

Author:  Reima [ Wed Jun 15, 2011 7:26 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Housepets! Forum Roll to Dodge Game

I ponder answering the questions, but then I also decide to sit on the floor.
"The computer doesn't need to know about me," I think.

"After all, as far as I know, it just randomly decided to kidnap me.
Though, it could be trying to help me...but it spoke of 'dangers' in a new world...so I'm really not quite sure."
I am conflicted as to whether or not speaking to the computer would be a good idea...

Post subject:  Re: Housepets! Forum Roll to Dodge Game

Pfft, everyone says escape is impossible... And why do I have an [UNPOSSIBLE] beside my name?

Anyway, the second form:
What are you? (Human/Other [specify])
Human

Describe yourself?
Use your camera (my avatar is right beside my post). And if you can't tell, it is a dark blue cloak with blue robe. Though I am probably going to get new clothes soon, robes are out of style now, even for a wizard.

Do you henceforth agree that all injury sustained is the fault of the inflictor, and you are not eligible to sue, no matter how severe the injury? (Yes/Duh/Um... I guess?/The only options are yes, so it doesn't matter./Objection? OVERRULED!)
What? I can't read that. But the only options are yes, so it doesn't matter.

Reima: [2] After missing the floor and landing in your chair, text appears on the screen.
Hey, it's alright. I mean, it's not like you won't have friends to help you, right? In this room, there's three other people that have a 95% chance harboring no ill will towards you. Even if you get hurt, they'll help you. And in the slight chance one of them doesn't like you, they'll realize that you have to stick together, and might even warm up to you. So take a chance, have some fun, and trust in others. Motivation bonus! For three non-[UNPOSSIBLE] or [FREE] rolls, 1's are converted into 3's!

Aqua: [FREE] Form accepted! Please stand by.

Yehoshua: [Free] Form accepted! Please hold.

Hmm I begin to question the reasons to tell the computer all about us, but then again, maybe it isn't... Or is it? This is all too confusing, where's the keyboard on this computer, I need to delete that stuff.

Author:  Reima [ Wed Jun 15, 2011 8:18 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Housepets! Forum Roll to Dodge Game

I'm still slightly worried about the weird computer and it's interest in me, but I decide to fill out the form anyway.

What are you?
The tiny fox in my avatar (obviously not drawn by me, for clarification's sake).

Description:
I am a traveler. I keep my daggers around in case someone tries to attack me for any of the various reasons that people would have to do so. Not that I've given them those reasons or anything... ;)

I then turn my worries to the idea that the computer said only three of the four (5?) people in the room are likely to be on good terms with me...
I look around the room to try and see if anyone looks familiar or particularly menacing...

Author:  dynaslash [ Wed Jun 15, 2011 8:32 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Housepets! Forum Roll to Dodge Game

Spheniscine: [UNPOSSIBLE] Errors: Invalid Description, In order to proceed, please accept the legal agreement.

Yehoshua: [UNPOSSIBLE] While we've done nothing to the keyboard in front of you, we are sorry to say that submitted forms are inaccessable, except for name changes.

Esko: Form accepted! Please wait.
I never said they wouldn't like you. I said that they MIGHT not like you. 95% chance they WILL like you.

Archy: Form accepted! Hang on.
~~~
Over the intercom, a voice is heard. Thank you for participating in the Hail Pledge Raise True Diamond, or HPRTD, experiment. All participators who have finished the form, please take an elevator to a Preparation Room, where you will be presented with a specal piece of technology that will aid you on your journey. Thank you, and please enjoy the experiment.

Fire
You've read the user lisence agreement? (Yes/Yes/Not really but noone cares so yes)
No one cares, so yes just to make this box go away

What are you? (Human/Other [specify])
Other: A shape shifter, frequently in the form of a white anthromorphic dog, six inches tall with insectoid wings.
Describe yourself?
I am a traveler and adventurer. A variety of forms have allowed me to cover distance and survive many things. I often take on the shape of a small humanoid formed dog as it appears to scare off strangers. Otherwise I have been known to travel as a human or various other animals. Over time, I have also learned magic, enough to create, throw and manipulate fire.

Do you henceforth agree that all injury sustained is the fault of the inflictor, and you are not eligible to sue, no matter how severe the injury? (Yes/Duh/Um... I guess?/The only options are yes, so it doesn't matter./Objection? OVERRULED!)
I agree and state that I believe in Hammurabi's Laws

First Action:
I observe the computers and at first attempt to find flaws in their security and determine their specs. Simple things such as attempting to access the shell or other silly things like that.

(Out of character): I'm just building the character, love. I was just mentioning that there are more than 3 people in the room, but the computer said:
dynaslash Wrote:

Meaning that it is uncertain to my character whether he can trust the other people around him. He can trust the three people the computer was talking about, but first he needs to figure out which of the people those three are. He has a great deal of people who would like to see him dead after all, and needs to make sure they are not in the room with him!



Alright, so back to the game.
My next action I suppose is walking into the elevator, because at this point I'm starting to become more curious than anything.

This shall be interesting. I get up from the computer and go over to the elevator, waiting on the others to see just what awaits. Inside, I look at the panel to see how big this facility is.

I simply stand there and look at the others entering. Human form for now to avoid freaking anyone out. People freak out when they see bears, tigers and unusual things in elevators. I wish the elevator would go faster.

Since we are all in the elevator waiting for whatever lies ahead, I decide to strike up a bit of conversation.

"So...what brings all of you to this random, ominous elevator on this fine day?"

At the same time, I look around the elevator for any clues to where I might be. Symbols, logos, things like that.

"You intrigue me...
You are obviously no longer among the living, but still, here you are. How in the world did anyone manage to capture you and put you in this situation?"

I then think of why someone would want to randomly place all of us in such a weird situation...still looking for hints on the wall.

I have no choice but to sit here and observe. My fellow.. captives? Or perhaps participants are not of the largely human variety I usually encounter. Still, I think I'll keep my cards concealed. Why give a potential enemy any information of use when they can be taught the hardway? Travels have shown never to be too keen to give away information until you know the individual getting it.

"I suspect we are all best off proceeding with an objective of observation. Whatever is going on here, we will have to see more of and about it before a reasonable action can be devised" I tell them, "otherwise, our own actions may act against us."

Next Move:
Enters the elevator, and salutes the others inside. Sits down on the elevator floor and looks at his fellow passengers. Notes a small moving figure inside his empty pockets and throws it at a random passenger.

Edit:

Action: I sit in the corner of the elevator and start "people-watching" seeing if there is anything of particular importance in the room that I should know about.
