Forum Games / The Gate
« on: July 30, 2012, 10:02:13 AM »
just saw War Story and was inspired. The rules are similar but there are some changes. Along with any options provided you always have the choice to Run,wait,observe,useorinvestigate.

Death is a possibility. In the case of death the dying person cannot be revived, and the story will immediately resume with a different person.

CHECKPOINTS will always appear Glowing in red. ACTIONS wil always appear in bold. INSTRUCTIONS will always appear in italics. OBJECTS will always appear in blue.

ALL RULES MAY BE OVERRULED BY THE USE OF INSTRUCTIONS

In the unlikely but possible event of all playable characters dying the game is lost.

Now, without further ado the beginning of the story



You are practicing for a half-marathon, as you run down the sidewalk past the park you notice a pillar of light shoot into the sky from one of the buildings not too far in the distance, only about a half mile off you stop and use your cell phone to take a photo of the pillar of light. suddenly you realize that after running six miles you are quite thirsty and may want to go to a restaurant for a drink.

CHECKPOINT

If you die before reaching the next checkpoint the character is resurrected at this point in time

General Discussion / TSOG Poetry
« on: August 08, 2011, 05:17:51 PM »
put in some poems that might be applicable in TSOG, just for fun.

here are a few to start from
Quote
Little figurines

Little clay figurines are born wet.
We mold them with our fingers,
we mold them with our words.

But each day they harden, yield less and less.
The sun burns scars in them, and they surrender
their moisture for relief. But

the rains come, and they cannot taste their wetness.
The ground moves, and they rattle asunder.
Brittle men now, they must all crumble to dust.
Quote
words flowing from an opened mouth
like waves upon the sea
changing yes, but staying great
a cliff into a beach

yet as we sit and listen
as a sapling drinks its trickle
from a great spring underground

we listen to the changing tale
we cherish these words as treasure
from the magic silver tongue
of the tired storyteller
Quote
The dread men are peered
Upon by poor eyes.
Their weary bones complain of
Injustice to the fire above.

No love or peace or joy comes,
But just one hope, that
Their stolen time will be
Given back.

The dread men are stared
At by sad eyes.
Their weary hearts protest of
Greed to the men above, but they
Know it is right.

so have at it poets, they don't need to be excellent or even all that great, we're an accepting enough community to encourage anybody's poem no matter if the Robert Frost, Pablo Neruda (an awesome poet) or some talking cat.

Forum Games / Conversation stoppers
« on: July 16, 2011, 09:22:31 PM »
You have one line to silence a room, do your best.

We'll start out with a scenario (wedding, child's birthday party etc.) and the next poster stops the conversation and gives a new scenario.

EXAMPLE:

negotiating with the mob

Smartyfarts-

Godfather, I hardly know you screw you and you're whole operation.

Son/daughter saves your life.

Moesiris-

What a wonderful accident you ended up as.

Wedding

Not example anymore.

Scenario: late for wedding.

•Healing (the extent to which you can heal yourself or others or otherwise regain health): low.

Special / Other: may use Shadow or Light element [Note: It is understood that such an ability has only been witnessed in two Shadowlings canonically, but for the sake of variety, it is a choice one may make.]



Psy healer

There is also a limit on the complexity of the item: no greater than Mechanic technology, unless modern technology is available (like a spare processor or a computer screen). In other words, be reasonable.]

The Traditionalists: these are
essentially the opposite of the modernizers and completely distrust all factions in the modern world.


Modern world


United Nations (UN)

Modern Suppliers' Alliance (MSA): will stop at nothing to extract the black gold from the newly-discovered island

.

The Corps of Psionic Research (CPR)

Unable to afford treatment due to the plummeting price of crude oil and irresponsible fiscal habits, both of his parents succumbed to a drug-resistant cholera outbreak.

Party member 1's name: Leela, his sister.

Party member 2's name: Samir, a friend of Moushtak's from business school and now co-owner of the remains of the Ramoughdin corporation.
