    So I've been having trouble getting out of bed recently and I read somewhere that the best way to get out of bed in the morning is to have something that you want to do in the morning. So I figured that doing an R2D update would be quick thing I could do every morning and would be something I couldn't easily do in bed, which would give me motivation to get out of bed.

    Don't know what R2D is? I'll quote the rules from Roll to Dodge: Ludicrous Edition to explain:

    Other Important Notes/Changes from Last Game:
    • Each player may submit one action per turn (unless I say otherwise).
    • As the whole point of this game is to get me up in the morning, I will usually update in the morning (AEST/ADET timezone). Don't get it in by then? You snooze, you lose.
    • All players start in their bed, waking up from a restful night's sleep.
    • Death is not the end, but merely a new beginning.
    • I will make a reserve post and then the game shall begin...

    (2) You fall out of the wrong side of bed (-3 HP). You can't find your glasses anywhere and you can't see without your glasses! (-5 to eyesight checks).

    (20) You float to the ceiling effortlessly, upon standing on the ceiling you realise that you are the 15th Dali Lama. Pretty epic, my dude (+3 to Dalai Lama related activities).

    (8) I avoid your attack, because I am the GM. In my infinite mercy I do not inflict a penalty on you.

    (6) NIGHTMARE!!! You are being chased by the Teeth-Fally-Out-Monster.

    ROLL TO DODGE! (6) - The monster successfully rips a chunk out of your (dream) flesh, -36i HP, 2i/turn damage from bleeding and 40% of your (dream) teeth fall out.

    (4) Turns out incepting with exactly zero training is a really bad idea. Not only do you get attacked by Omega's subconscious, you get chased by the Teeth-Fally-Out-Monster as well!

    ROLL TO DODGE! (x2):

    (12-1) 11 You dodge the dream bullets epic style.
    (19) The bullets fly into the teeth-fally-out-monster, severely injuring it (-42i HP, 3i/turn damage from bleeding) and drawing aggro away from you and Megan.

    (2) Not if your sleep paralysis demon can do anything about it!

    ROLL TO DODGE (crippling terror)!

    (6) AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! (-40i HP, +1 Terror from being terrified)

    (1) Not only do you fail to find a pillow with sufficient fluffiness (-1% Honour/turn), you are suddenly surprise attacked by your nemesis the famed pillow samurai Sasaki Kojirō! (no relation). If you do not defeat him in this pillow duel, your honour will be irrevocably stained!

    ROLL TO DODGE!

    (8) Sasaki Kojirō pelts you with his prize pillow as you feel the honour draining from your bones (-26% Honour).

    (19) I git gud because I attended AA's meme seminar (+1 to all player's rolls next turn). AA's meme seminary becomes famed world wide (+1 to giving meme seminars) and both me and AA gains a Fate Point (Fate Points are complicated, read AA's and my stats).

    (13) Sleepymus Prime, one of the smaller Autobots who can transform from a bed into a couch, rolls LordArgon out to the bathroom.

    ****************​
    I do a JoJo pose.

    The Teeth-Fally-Out-Monster roars and begins chasing the Megan's Subconcious Security Guard #1 (MSSG#1).

    MSSG#1 ignores the Teeth-Fally-Out-Monster and goes all Terminator like at Crezth.

    Megan's Subconcious prepares to summon another security guard to remove Crezth.

    Rosie's Sleep Paralysis Demon continues to be horrifying.

    Sasaki Kojirō (no relation) boasts about how he will become the Shogun of Dream Japan and unite the country under his rule once he has defeated Carthasis.

    Sleepymus Prime awaits further instruction.

    "Sometimes dreams can get pretty crazy, Megan," I say over her objections as I pull a dream bazooka out of hammerspace and fire the rocket missiles.

    Addressing the famed Sasaki Kojirō () I speak thus: "You would attack a man without his pillow sir? There is no honour in this. Continue on this path if you wish to commit pillowmurder like a thug. Allow me time to locate a suitable weapon, and then, we shall duel like samurai."
