    ROLL TO DODGE
    “Well, Here I Am”

    Welcome to my second installment of Roll To Dodge.

    Skip this part if you already know the rules.

    1. Post an action.
    2. I will roll one of my trusty six sided dice and tell you the outcome of your action.

    If, by some odd twist of fate, something is flying towards you, you get a free roll to dodge it. If you die, you lose the game. You win if everybody else is dead.

    Here is how the die rolls work out:
    1- Epic failure. You actually take the exact opposite action.
    2- Failure.
    3- Marginal success.
    4- Success.
    5- Perfect success.
    6- Overshot.

    You can virtually do anything, but be careful since you have a 50% chance of screwing it up. If you post multiple actions at once, only the first action will be taken. This will disregard all other actions and intent.

    Also, if you attempt to take an action without an intermediate action (example, you try to wear a shirt you are not carrying) the action auto-fails. You can't take the same action twice in a row, and only the first action you submit before I post the results of every bodies actions will be resolved.

    Example:
    You all are trapped inside a jail cell. What do you do
    Player 1: I take out my laser cutter and cut through the bars
    Me: Automatic 2: You rummage around in your pockets for the nonexistent laser cutter. You trip and fall on someone's foot.
    Roll to dodge for Player two: 3
    You manage to pull out most of your leg, but your toes got crushed.

    Player Two: UGH! I kick Player 1 in the face.
    Me: 6: You jump up and seem to levitate over the Player 1. You execute a perfect flip, your toes just brushing the roof, and snap one leg forward in time to connect with Player1's face. The force of your kick makes the room explode. People go flying out the cell. Roll to Dodge[5]. Everyone miraculously missed the glass of water.

    DO NOT FREAKING SKIP THIS PART EVEN IF YOU ALREADY KNOW THE RULES

    Of course, this game isn’t one of those normal Roll to Dodge when you seek to kill everyone else :evil:.

    This game is about survival. You seek to live as long as possible while performing actions that will make your character comfortable.

    Since this game is no longer about killing other people, different way of determining winners apply.

    Scoreboard.
    Performing any action that allows your character to become more comfortable: +5 point

    Performing any action that allows your character to become happy: +10 point

    Performing any action that allows your character to become ecstatic: +20 point

    Killing a weak enemy trying to kill you: +1 point

    Killing an intermediate enemy trying to kill you: +5 point

    Killing a strong enemy trying to kill you: +10 point

    Killing a very strong enemy trying to kill you: +15 point

    Killing a Boss: +30 points.

    Dying: -70 point

    Heavily wounded by an accident: -20 point

    Sloth: -30 point

    Becoming displeased: -5 point

    Becoming hateful at oneself: -10 point

    Teamkill: -20 point

    (Note: a takedown of a very strong, or a boss creature will earn everyone heavily involved 2/3 of the points possible)

    (Note 2: Be creative :evil:.)

    Waves of enemies:
    To accelerate the flow of the game, I have taken the liberty of putting in official waves of enemies. Things will become apparent when it gets there…


    Anyways, you all wake up in a house. There is nobody else inside there except for a convenient arms dealer selling weapons. (No, he does not sell replacement arms.... okay, maybe he does).

    Although there probably is a puma in the basement, as evidenced by "BEWARE OF THE PUMA" signs, the lack of stairs (somebody ripped it away with the strength of Hulk), and a locked door (god knows how you figured out how it was locked).

    Outside world is filled with snow. There is a crashed plane outside which you all presume carried you into this mess. There are cries of pain in the snowstorm that envelops the house, but you don't know where it comes from.

    But you know one thing, they can't be good.

    Your all are thirsty, hungry, and cold. Your inventory spaces are emptry as well. Now GO!

    Wow, totally just realized something I never thought of before. Also in.

    I'll get down to some summoning then. We could always use some summoned allies/fodder. For now I'll try to summon:

    Loki the evil, hated, tormenting clown from Fall From Heaven who also spams said phrase. "Here I am"

    DA TUTORIAL
    Because everyone needs n00b time.

    1: You say "OH MY GAWD LOOK! A DISTRACTION!!!" causing the gender-confused arms dealer to look behind her in fright. You pull out a Plasma Rifle MK-5 from your back pocket that you didn't realize you had and shove it into her infinite storage of weapons.

    2: You somehow find yourself at the mercy of the Arms Dealer's pistol
    Roll to Dodge: 4: You manage to dodge the full blast of her sonic pistol in time, but sonic pistol being sonic pistol still manages to make you urinate while wearing your pants. This makes you mildly (?) uncomfortable (-5 point for you boyo)

    1 (RNG hates you): You summon Ayn Rand.

    3: You find yourself checking the place between your legs for some reason. You now know you are male.

    3: You summon a pinecorn, ON FIRE!

    6: She leads you up to her room, but not before converting the Infinite Storage of Weapons into a vending machine
    +10 points

    5 (wow): She leads you up to her room as well.
    +10 points

    4: You find some pillz (+5 point)

    5: You find it. It's outside near the plane.

    5: You are warm and cozy (+5 point)

    1: You get hit by your very first snowball (-2 HP). Not to mention that it is VERY, VERY COLD OUTSIDE (-4 HP)

    1: You summon a neigh-undestructable obsidian statue of D00M that sticks to living things (you) and sucks all magical abilities out of it
    Meanwhile, strange shapes dance amidst the snow storm. But what could it mean?

    I go outside and make a stockpile of snowballs. Nuts to the arms dealer, snowballs are so much more powerful than actual weapons and also whimsical.

    EDIT: You know, after I clicked 'Submit Post' and it was taking really long to load the page, I said to myself, "oh God, I've crossposted with the update" and you know what? It turns out I'm a freakin' psychic.
