    Roll to dodge
    Original concept and rules by Mouse

    Roll to Dodge is a fun game where you play with a group of (6) people. Think Dungeons and Dragons in a sense. You will be placed in a certain scenario, and you (may) be given a certain objective. Now here's the catch, for nearly every action you make, a die will determine the outcome.

    The numbers on the six sided die are marked as such...
    1) Epic fail
    2) Kinda fail
    3) Kinda success
    4) Success
    5) Perfect success
    6) Overshot

    For example:

    Jack wants to jump over a wooden fence.
    I roll a die and it lands 4. Since a 4 represents normal success, nothing too bad nor too good happens, you just complete your action.
    Thus, Jack jumps over a wooden fence.

    Let's say Jack rolled a 1. The outcome would be much different now.
    Jack tries to jump the wooden fence, but trips over his shoelace and smashes his face through it, breaking his nose.

    Now what if he rolled a 6?
    Jack runs as fast as he can to gain the momentum he needs to jump the fence. The momentum is so great that he jumps the fence, but keeps gaining altitude from his jump and doesn't seem to stop. Jack literally jumps across the entire world and lands right back where he started, behind the wooden fence.

    I'm sure you can get what the rest of the numbers represent.

    Rules!
    Only (6) people may play at a time.
    -This is based on a first come first served basis
    -If you did not make it in time, I can still add you to the waiting list
    -I would like to keep this game moving at a good pace, so you will have 2 days max to take your turn or you will be removed from the game and the first person on the waiting list will take your spot
    -If you have a legitimate excuse for an absence, then your spot will be frozen until you come back.

    This game will use the declare system. You declare your move, then when everyone's move has been declared, they are all taken, the die is rolled, and results are decided.
    -I will not post results of the actions until everyone has taken their turn

    I will only count the first action you post. If you post multiple actions (Jump the fence, then punch the guy in the face), then I will only roll on the "Jump the fence" action.
    -There will be some exceptions to this rule
    -Other minor actions may be used with your major action (look around, talk, ect)
    -Observing your surrounding will not be effected by the die
    -Talking to NPCs or players will not be effected by the die

    You may post almost any action you desire
    -If you want to attempt to harness the power to fly or spontaneuosly grow a third arm, you can do so.
    -You may not god-mod and ruin the fun for everyone, however.

    You may kill or be killed by players or your actions
    -Be weary of what you do, if you attempt to kill another player early in the game and fail, the results can have devastating results
    -Attempting to do something stupid can lead to a very funny death

    Certain events can affect your next roll
    -If you do something with perfect success there may be a chance your roll, or everyone's roll, can be increased by +X amount, or be predetermined
    -The same can be applied if you have an epic failure, only your roll will have -X amount
    -If a certain action has an effectiveness on a body part, then any action requiring that body part will be effected (Jack's arms are broken, -3 to any action used by his arms)
    -The same can have positive attributes

    So I need players. This is all kinda based on luck. If you die, you're dead. You can't go back. You died. Final.

    Please note. This was totally not copied of another forum... If i didnt state earlier. You start with 13 HP. But this can change.

    The SU form is basically as follows

    Character Name:
    Any other stuff: (Background, Special abilities. Etc. You dont have to be a human. Heck you could be a pokemon.

    Ouch. Sorry moderators. Ive only just realised theres a Non pokemon trivia forum. Could you possobly move this there? Thanks.

      I'd like to sign up, please.

      Name: Wild Jr.
      Characteristic Traits: Male, pretty average. Looks like the guy in my avatar. Never goes anywhere without his trusty Cyndaquil and GameBoy. Has a bag stuffed with Oreos. Also is kinda humourous. Picks the worst time to make a joke (Eg: Big ugly hairy monster: "RAHR! I will eat you!". Wild Jr: "Ugh! Y'know, dude, they have this new invention that may help you. It's called brushing your <bleep>ing teeth!").

      Yeah, that's just about it. If there's something not allowed or something missing, I'll edit this.

      Cheers!
      -Wild Jr.

      EDIT: The Cyndaquil is nicknamed "Cyndy"

              A change in rules! Not that it makes that much difference.

              More then six are allowed. Ive upped rhe cap to twelve. So more people can play at once. Although it doesnt seem like thats gonna happen :/

                Name: Pip
                Characteristic Traits: Uhh... well... for starters.... he's not human. The word for his species is actually Piplup. Pretty normal for his species, though he's about in inch taller. He never goes anywhere without his trusty partner, a cute little Joltik. A long time ago, scientists put a translator on him, so now everything he says is heard in English. He is very brave and daring.

                  Name: X
                  Characteristic Traits: A very silent person. Does not do much. Not much about him is known due to insufficient data. Wears a Parka that covers his Torso completely. Wears a cloth on face till eyes. Jeans and converse sneakers. Apparently has black hair. Carries a PSP and his two Pokemon, Altaria and Arcanine everywhere. Seen very rarely. Wears earphones.

                  That's my character. Will he qualify?

                    Okay, people. Sign ups are open again. I'm gonna take over this game as it's a brilliant idea, only Volkner isn't around anymore (I have no idea why)

                    So, sign up, and let's begin!
