The Magic Portal

Post by BadgeAddict » Wed Aug 26, 2015 1:59 pm

Dorvak, the great and terrible wizard, who lives in the black tower at the edge of the swamp, is looking for Cannon-fodder volunteers to go on an experiment adventure in which there will be probably nothing great riches in order to collect a very special egg.

He invites every able bodied goblin to sign-up and go places where no goblin has gone before.

Notes:
Death is permanent and the game will continue until the last surviving goblin dies, at which point another group of volunteers will be rounded up and pushed allowed through the portal to pick up where the last group ended.

Character Stats:
5 HP
1 ATT
1 DEF

Actions, Combat & Movement:
Every action in this game will take place in parts of a TURN. 1 TURN contains 10 actions points (AP). Starting out, you won't know how many AP it takes to do something, but you will be given change. So, if you do something that only takes 1 AP, the next turn you will have 19 AP to use. You may spend your AP however you want, even repeating the same action over and over again. Change not spent on your next turn will be lost.
Known Action Costs:
Movement = 2 AP, Walk = 2 AP, Sneak = 3 AP, Run = 3 AP
Combat = 2 AP

Moving into a new "area" costs 2 AP but will spend all of your remaining AP.
Combat on the other hand costs 2 AP but does not spend all of your AP.

Updates:
Will be at minimum 2/week, if I'm able to update more I will.

To sign up, simply add your name, color & gender to a list and within a week or two we'll start.
Art Style will be (should be) similar to what I've done in the past.

Tastes Everything
#FF8000
Male

His name says it all.

His chief Swallows-Poison was understandably nervous about drinking poison and dying, so was much relieved when Tastes was born. He soon was employed as the official taster to the chief, and got to try all the best dishes first. Unfortunately, the chief died, and when it was determined he'd been poisoned, Tastes was run out of the tribe. Unbeknownst to him, the poisoner had taken to dosing things that no other goblin would put in their mouth... but Tastes. He'd built up a resistance to the poison by licking sticks, rocks, etc., so when the poison was added to the chief's drink, Tastes suffered no ill effects.

I am in with Remedy, light green. (Too lazy to come up with a different char, just "clone" the GAl Remedy into this non-GAL Remedy).

By the way, although not necessary, If you would like to add a backstory, I wouldn't discourage it.

Done. It's more of an ethos than a backstory per se, but it sums her up :)

I plan on starting this evening. It's not too late to sign up, though if you do, I would expect your character to have a name like always-late or never-on-time. :D
