    This is a simple game based off the original Roll to Dodge by Seon, and its evolution under Thorvald of Lym

    The Rules are pretty simple:

    1. Post an action.
    2. Your result will be determined by the roll of a die.

    Any action that triggers a third-party attack on the player immediately grants a free defence roll.

    'Ludicrous Edition' increases the variability of results with a 20-sided die (actually a short Python script) that in addition to establishing the immediate success of an action, also determines random items found, health/power/money gained/lost, etc. The basic breakdown is as follows:

    1 : Unbelievably total failure. Action WILL backfire.
    2-4 : Failure, with penalty
    5-7 : Marginal failure with possible penalty
    8-10 : Failure, no penalty
    11-13 : Straightforward success
    14-16 : Success, with possible bonus
    17-19 : Success, with circumstantial bonus
    20 : MAXIMUM POWER. Guaranteed success, with added bonus.

    Under binary conditions, 1-10 fails, 11-20 succeeds.

    Note that attempting an action requiring an intermediate action (i.e. starting a car with no keys) automatically fails. Also note that the same action cannot be taken twice in a row. Take heed that your GM is unstable, and may tweak the playing field independent of player actions. Almost anything goes, but be warned that metagaming will anger me, an bad things will happen

    Each player may submit one action per turn. I'll update whenever I feel like it. The game is played until one player remains alive.

    10: The only thing you shape-shift is your face as you scrunch it up, trying to gain such powers.

    2: Noone takes you seriously, the embarrasment harms your rolls for the next two turns (-2 for 2 turns)

    I obtain a bat'leth.

    OOC Question: Is this all the first round? Going to summarize everyone's actions at the end. Or did those above get in an early round or something?

    19: It is very sharp indeed, and light to use. (+1 damage on succesful attacks, +1 on attack rolls when attacking with it.)


    I'm throwing in rounds all over the place. As stated in OP, i'll update when I feel like it. Things will slow to a twice daily update during the working week.

    Ok but it says one action per turn - so does a turn include multiple updates?

    Also I get forge some iron greaves as my next action.

    Edit: thanks. But just a heads up then I figure keeping up twice a day or more might be hard for me, don't know about other players

    Every time I post the result of your action, you are free to post another.

    8 (6): Slovakia does not grant you asylum. The Rebels are unimpressed and set about beating you up before releasing you.

    ROLL 2 DODGE! (19) You easily dodge their attacks and steal a AK47 (with ammo) as you escape

    9: No, you don't.

    5: The greaves don't fit! They cause you to lose dexterity

    2 (1): Turns out you were not sold a pet duck, but instead a terror duck. It attacks you.

    ROLL 2 DODGE! (12) The terror duck misses in its terror drive and flaps off looking sheepish.

    If Slovakia are unimpressed, I dress up as a Gypsie and wagon myself to Hungary where I ditch my disguise and look for another rebel army to raise.
