    Alright you miserable wee donkey, welcome to GordIOT! This is an IOT all about running your own restaurant and trying to be the very best while avoiding the wrath of everyone's favorite angry British food critic, Gordon Ramsay. Taking inspiration from the series Kitchen Nightmares, MasterChef, any restaurant simulator, and the Roll To Dodge series, the premise is as follows: you will be able to create and customize your own restaurant, and will be given points at the beginning of each turn to put into specific variables based around your restaurant. At the end of each turn, rolls will be made, which can be affected by how you spend your points, and the player who comes out with the worst rolls will be eliminated from the game.

    Rules are over here

    ROIGHT YA DONKEYS, DON'T SLACK OFF.

    Restaurant Name: Cantina Sunrise
    Restaurant Style: (Gourmet) Tex-Mex
    Signature Dish: Chimicherry-Changa
    [Also, Quesarito Sushi with Guacamole-Wasabi sauce]

    FOOD QUALITY 1 + 7 = 8
    Although still young and looking for suppliers and talent, Cantina Sunrise believes in top quality produce, to quality preparation, and top quality burristas.

    APPEARANCE 1 + 2 = 3
    Cantina Sunrise does it's best to look tip top shape, but overall ends up looking more messily homely than pristine.

    ADVERTISING 1 + 0 = 1
    Cantina Sunrise relies entirely on word-of-mouth buzz.

    SIZE 1 + 1 = 2
    Cantina Sunrise has a small renovated location with mostly outdoor/public seating, having only recently graduated from curbside selling straight from his apartment's kitchen.

    PRICE 1 + 0 = 1
    Somehow, Cantina Sunrise has been unable to raise prices above $2 despite high cost and quality of ingredients.


    FINAL

    Food Quality: 8
    Appearance: 3
    Advertizing: 1
    Size: 2
    Price: 1

    Notes: You might want to make a program for separate rolls per player, otherwise, I'm pretty sure everyone will tie.

    EDITNOTES: Also, you might want to define Price and Quality a bit, since it's kinda confusing atm.

    Restaurant Name: Emiya Kitchen
    Restaurant Style: Japanese, although it serves certain Chinese and Indian dishes due to the demands of angry Church officials.
    Signature Dish: Unlimited Bake Works - A desert platter consisting of various baked goods, imitations of the signature dishes of many different pastry chef. But there is no rule that says an imitation cannot surpass an original. Here I come, King of Angry British Chefs - do you have enough appetite in stock?

    Food Quality 11 - Shirou Emiya cooks pretty nicely (for a guy) and his assistants Rin, Sakura and Archer cook very well also.

    Appearance 1 - The restaurant is his living room. A nice living room, but its weird eating in someone's living room when you think you are going to a restaurant.

    Advertising 1 - Word of mouth, who needs ads when you have swords?

    Menu/Restaurant Size 1 - Its his living room. Tiny.

    Price 1 - Shirou tries to keep his food cheap and affordable without compromising its tastiness. In the world of Gordon Ramsy, this is a rookie mistake.

    Riiiight, let's see what we have here.
    If you're here you know you've got a bit of an issue, yeah? That's what we're trying to get across here - you need to improve, or be eliminated.

    Brisket, done right, can be amazing. But are you sure this is seasoned? Really? It's bland! It's blander than a clean chef's jacket! It's blander than half the comedy in this show! You're going to need to get your act together, bozo, because "Paw"'s pretty upset.

    Skeletoni's, yeah, I can see that. How are you supposed to feed anyone on these portions? And this singular meatball looks like... Is that supposed to be cat food? It sure bloody looks like catfood.

    Frozen beef, frozen noodles... have you considered opening up an ice cream stand? They need someone with the skill to freeze things that you have. And how much do you try to sell this for? That's outrageous!

    Steak is overcooked. Steak. is. OVER. COOKED! Restaurants are more than your pet project! SHOW SOME RESPECT!

    Very ambitious. Too ambitious, perhaps. Let's try some of this...
    :vomit:
    Poisoning me doesn't earn you any points, you realize that, you clown?

    How do you mess up all these ingredients? Why are you trying to be special? Why don't you begin AT THE BEGINNING?

    The Tuna's BLOODY RAW! Tuna! Expensive fish! Salmon AND Tuna! How much money are you losing, all of it? Seems like it!

    Not even touching that food. Gimmicks in restaurants can be deadly, you do realize that?

    :vomit:
    Fermented fish? Fermented fish???
    Honestly I'm this close to just shutting the competition down now and sending you all home.

    Is... Is this from one of my cookbooks?
    Are you serious? Your own front room?
    Are you sure you're in the right Gordon Ramsay show?

    I've been in India, I hope you realize that. Because this is hardly Indian. It's bland, bland, BLAND.
    ---
    Right, all your food needs work. Serious work. Hopefully we can get some of that done.

    Everyone has.... 10 points. 10 points to improve an aspect of your restaurant for next time we meet up. I expect improvements, though that won't be too hard.
