The 75th Annual Brontogames

Postby Friday » Tue Jun 09, 2015 6:02 pm

For thousands of years, we've had an annual contest. A culling. A test of survival. A test of skill, of luck, of guts. Many enter, but only one can leave.

Welcome our brave Brontos!

District One
nosimpleway
A man of few words and fewer good rolls. Not much is known about him except that he can summon a van to attack with when desperate. The van will immediately break down and have no effect.
Traits: Runner, Weathered, Stealthy

District Two
Mothra
Legends speak of two tiny girls who brought this creature back from the dead. Beware his powder attack, which can blind up to himself, and any nearby allies.
Traits: Boy Scout, Tough, Weathered

District Three
Mongrel
Winner of the 51st annual Brontogames, he won by causing his opponent to laugh at his silly hat and then choking him to death with it. Super moves include: Posting, Posting, Posting, Posting.
Traits: 5th Level Khef, Boxer, Light Sleeper

District Four
Mizore
A being with many names and shapes. Some claim he is Caithness, winner of the 23rd games, others say he is a Thing who wandered into the wrong game.
Traits: Berryology, Boxer, Light Sleeper

District Five
Classic
Always on the winning team.
Traits: Tracker, Hardy, Fighter

District Six
Beatbandit
High school year book quote: "Killin' a man ain't no thang but a chickan wing on a string."
Traits: Stealthy, I make cakes, Fighter

District Seven
Laserbeing
A time traveler from the 80s, this grim black caped overlord seems to be obsessed with finding a certain firey-haired elven bounty hunter who he believes entered the games.
Traits: Tracker, I make cakes, Good Nose

District Eight
Kazz
Kazz has already won the game, good game guys
Traits: Tough, I make cakes, Boy Scout

District Nine
Niku
Summoned here to do battle with his ancient rival Mothra, Godzilla has entered the games under an assumed name.
Traits: Tracker, Runner, I make cakes

District Ten
Romosome
Winner of the previous Brontogames, Explosion Dog still has no idea what is going on or why he is here.
Traits: Doge, Doge, Doge

District Eleven
Newbie
The mastermind behind the existence of EK, Newbie once killed a man for using too many evil fires. When asked about his plan for winning the games, Newbie simply replied "Fuckbug will aid me."
Traits: Runner, I make cakes, Berryology

District Twelve
Grath
After being sucked into his monitor, Grath finds himself actually inside his monitor, which is really cramped especially because he's got a flatscreen
Traits: 5th Level Khef, Berryology, Good Nose

District Thirteen
Frocto
Hailing from the distant planet Rocktopus, Frocto has come in peace with two missions: One: to win the games, and Two: and he's all out of bubblegum.
Traits: Good Nose, Hardy, Trapper

The elevator you are standing on rises slowly through the darkness. Up ahead, you squint as a tiny pinprick of light widens to a blinding glare. Your eyes adjust to take in the situation: The Brontos are arranged in a circle around a Cornucopia filled with weapons and gear. The countdown timer ticks steadily down. You tense, preparing for the slaughter that must come.

Five, four, three. Two. R^2 steps off the platform (1%) and is immediately detonated. One.

The games are on.

We have now begun the Cornucopia Event.

You may:

1. Escape at any time. This immediately ends your participation and puts you in The Open.

2. Search the outer circle. This gives you a 50% chance to find any one-two non-weapon gear.

3. Search the inner circle. This gives you a 50% chance to find any one weapon.

Brontos who search the outer ring will have the option to attack any other Bronto in the outer ring after the search phase ends.

Brontos who search the inner ring will have the option to attack any other Bronto in the inner or outer ring after the search phase ends.

The Cornucopia Event continues until all players but one are either dead or have fled to The Open. The one who stays until all other have fled or dies gains initial control of The Cornucopia. He or she will gain whatever equipment they want to max capacity, heal to full, and then destroy the rest.

There are no alliances possible until the Cornucopia Event ends.

After each searching round, any Bronto who did not flee is subject to being attacked. Unlike Confrontation, you do not get automatically counter attacked when attacking during a Cornucopia Event. The only penalty for attacking others is pissing them off.

Except R^2.

The trumpet sounds. You dash from your podium, the spoils of the games laid out in front of you.

*****************

Newbie searches the inner ring, but finds nothing.

Niku searches the inner ring, but finds nothing.

Grath flees the event, moving to The Open.

Beatbandit searches the inner ring, finding Throwing Knives.

Frocto searches the outer circle, finding Flint, and a Jacket.

nosimpleway searches the inner ring, but is unable to roll well.

Mongrel searches the outer circle, but finds nothing.

Laserbeing searches the inner circle, but finds nothing.

Mizore searches the outer circle, finding a Jacket.

Classic searches the inner circle, but finds nothing.

Mothra searches the outer circle, but finds nothing.

Kazz searches the inner circle, and grabs a Spear.

Romosome searches the outer circle, grabbing a Backpack, not realizing it's empty.

*******************

We now move on to Attack phase. Those of you in the Outer Circle, you may attack any other Bronto in the Outer Circle. Those of you in the inner ring, you may attack any Bronto, with the exception of Grath.

Attacks made during the Cornucopia Event are special and do not use normal combat rules. You just get a free attack.

You may choose not to attack anyone, to avoid making enemies.

PM me your action asap, including the choice not to attack.

There is no running away at this time. You can run next search phase. The only choices right now are attacking, or not.

Grath, you're done until the event ends.

Hmm.

In an effort to speed things along, I'm going to ask that players PM me their Action Trees.

What this means is instead of doing one move at a time, I want to do two moves at a time.

So, right now, PM who you're attacking (or not attacking) and then ALSO what your next action during search phase is. (Inner, Outer, Flee.)

You may make your Action Tree as complicated (I attack Frocto, then, assuming I have no injuries, search outer, unless my attack kills Frocto and I get his stuff, (or have any injuries) then flee) or as simple (I don't attack, then flee) as you want.

I'll be doing this for the rest of the event.

There seems to be some confusion about the order of actions, so I'll clarify:

You must send me who you attack, and then, what search you do. (or if you flee during search phase.)

You cannot make a tree that says "I attack no one, then search inner ring, unless attacked, in which case I hit them back." You can do retaliatory attacks, of course, but not until the next action round.
