Welcome all! As you may know, D&D is a very popular RPG board game that involves limitless adventure, rolls of dice and hours of fun! So, I give myself the responsibility of becoming the Robot Master Master, and will create your adventure from the ground up, as YOU see fit! That's right: give me a scenario and we'll jump right in! (I can also do it for you if requested.)
Rules: -Multiple games can be played on this thread at once. Remember yours. -EVERYTHING is pretty much decided by a roll of the die. Even if I don't show it. Good luck! -This works just like D&D in that, there are no traditional "rules" per se, but as we go along, we'll cross bridges as we come to them. -You may tell me if you'd like that game to be harder, normal, or "beginner friendly". -There will only be 10 stats (5 good and 5 bad) unless otherwise specified: =Strength: How you do damage, move heavy objects, fighting style, etc. =Wisdom: How you solve puzzles, get ideas, invent things, etc. =Skill: How you handle things, get out of situations, etc. =Sneak: How you can steal, move undetected, etc. =Charm: How you can get people on your side, persuade, etc. =Creation: How you can build, make traps, etc. =Destruction: How you can destroy, hack firewalls, etc. =Speed: How fast your character is. =Defense: How you take damage. =Control: How you get viruses, how you can command soldiers or machines, etc. Now, how this works is that you will choose 5 stats to boost and 5 to decrease. I will roll a 100-sided die and tell you your new abilities accordingly. Example: I want to boost strength, but choose to decrease Skill. I roll a 7 for Strength and 56 for Skill. My new stats would be 7 Strength and -56 Skill. If you choose not to boost nor decrease an ability, it will remain at zero. But, if you boost one, you must decrease another, and vice-versa. ABSOLUTELY NO TAKE BACKSIES. Keep in mind: These can change! (For better or worse!)
After the request is made (preferably via PM, as we would like to keep this thread for the game itself.) I'll place your Group Request on this thread and people can join and leave as they please. PLEASE CONFIRM WITH ME FIRST! I will take your Ability boost/decreases to an 100#RNG and give you each a Character Card (kept on a Pastebin, and you can keep on on your Profile if you like). Alternatively, you may boost a stat to whatever you like, but you must decrease another by that much as well.
Well, we need players! For our first game, I'll not limit the amount we can have, but it will be difficult with huge groups. Specify on a number of players you like in your group; the group creator will be Captain. Or, if you'd like, request a Solo Play.
Have fun! Keep in mind, though: My free time is quite limited regularly so, patience is a virtue. Hopefully, it will have been worth the wait.
Lotus heads her little self over to Vappy Sector, eager to see what could possibly ential this ever-so special visit of his... Of course, watching from the sidelines, as she probably isn't allowed here via social standard alone.
A buff, magnificent (and quite handsome) Subterranean stands on the platform, crudely set up next to the bath house. He addresses the frantic crowd chanting his name with a loud and booming voice.
Friends! For years we Subbies have been treated like lessers! Always being pushed below the surface, like we're not good enough. Who is to speak for us? Not a soul. It has always been the Humans, those vile surface dwellers, who've been in control. All we've ever been to them were pests. But soon... We will take the surface, and the Humans will be the one to live in poverty, not us! Haha, yes... This will be such a great coup d'etat, it will live on in history forever!
The crowd is now very riled up about his plan. This could spell bad news to the balance of these ecosystems...
But, of course, we can't have anybody ruining our little plan here...
He points directly at your hiding spot. Get her.
In a single simultaneous motion, the entire embodiment of Vappy Sector turns and leers at you. Luckily, years of stealth have trained you how to escape flash mobs and the like. Lotus was already booking it to the surface, for anywhere down there she's a fugitive just because some guy declared you a snitch! Either way, that can be dealt with later. For now, she needs to find somewhere where she can at least sleep. You can't even begin to imagine what they could be doing to the other Invalid Subterraneans like you... But not now.
For now, defense is #1. Not only can you not trust your fellow Subbies, the Humans also despise your kind. Nowhere is safe from them.
Well... At least it is night time. Nobody's around to hate you.
Juan's Wharf (above Vappy Sector) -Ferries -Business Bay -Theatre -Peach Beach -Sandopolis -Main Street (leads to Arcadie Island)
Lotus goes to Sandopolis, maybe there's a temple she can hide in. Of course, there's probably gonna be traps and ghosts, but she could use the former to her advantage. She'll also need a less convincing disguise than some robes.

Lotus travels Peach Beach in the night silence for a bit, eventually reaching Sandopolis. Great idea! she thinks to herself, Probably... Deserted.
A rim shot is heard elsewhere.
In Sandopolis, she makes a list of things she needs: -Shelter -Disguise -Source of heat and cool for day and night in the desert respectively -Some way to rid herself of Ghosts and traps...
She stands in the midst of a freezing sandscape, made vapid by lack of color and sunlight. The only parts of interest are the ruins of what seems to be multiple Stonehenges. Not much of else populates the area, but this is only the first area here...
Lotus, ever hopeful, tries digging with her claw hands out some of the ruins. While an entire city would be too much to dig up, (duh,) she did find some nice stones and the sand down here is very nice and fine.
Lotus presses onward. As she does, the hills become bigger, and the ruins become more plentiful. One even reaches so high, the hill of sand covering it pours a small stream of sand, creating a sand fall. You know, like a waterfall, but... Whatever!
The ruins continue to become more whole with each step. She begins to feel like she might not be alone here, some of the "ruins" look pretty clean. What could this mean? Either way, she continues with her little excursion, eventually finding a ruin so large, she could get lost in it! SHe could do something else, but this looks like a good hiding spot!
A lone traveler known by simply "Pixel" treks the world in search of wonder, fame and fortune! And just his luck, he seems to have stumbled upon a kingdom in need of assistance! As the town crier announces:
Manly men of Sinjid! His Highness the King Krin has declared an economic disaster! With our import failing, he has made the royal decree to begin searching the dungeons of the caves for a temporary solution to this issue! Half of all guardsmen have been dispatched for such, and any and all townspeople are encouraged to assist the kingdom in a like manner! All profits brought before the kingdom's treasurer will be recompensated proportionately!
The townsfolk spot you in the crowd. A lot of them seem to disregard you, but other look like they don't like strangers around their peaceful kingdom. The village chief also seems to have spotted you, and is gazing from afar. Maybe he wishes to talk?
Sinjid Kingdom: -Armory and Smithy -Sinjid Market -Sunsnug Island -Job Counter -Inn -Master Hunter -Wycademy -Grandma's Hired Hands -Dungeons
What will you do?

Pixel hails the chief, and walks up to the... Healthy man.
He greets you, his voice low and gruff.
Hello there, trav'ler! I see you've made a way into our fine complex.
Er, yes. Hello to you.
Just call me chief. Anyway, If you want to know what you can do here, consult your Reference Sheet.
Well, I suppose you heard our little announcement there. It isn't necessary, but you'd probably get some respect from... Well, anyone here. Oh! And take this. Just a little gift, 'cuz I like you so far.
He hands you a small jewel. You can feel it is brewed with a power... The power to give you Protection!
Great. Thanks, Chief!
You now have control over yourself.
What will you do, today in the Sinjid Kingdom?
