    WOOHOOO yep here it is. I've been wanting to make another text adventure for while now, and the first one flopped horrendously, so here we go. But first
    [​IMG]
    Annnyway, here are the rules:
    1: No being a jerk to everyone obviously!
    2: No matter what, you can't have a redo on your turn. No exceptions.
    Yes, there are only two rules, but I am very lazy.
    1: No being overpowered. 2: No Terrarian OCs.

    STORY

    In a dark tower, two recruits are standing. A man walks into the room, dressed in dark armor. He has a glowing sword on his belt. He addresses the recruits...
    "My name is Loran. You two have been chosen to serve under the great emperor. I will be in charge of training you to become the ultimate warriors."
    (So yeah, that's the beginning of our story! I'll start when two people join :))

    Madder Terrarian

    So... do our characters have to have no past experiences? With Return to Neibreth, we had opportunity to develop our characters' backstories because they already existed beforehand. With the way this started out so far, it seems like our characters have to have no past experience in battle.

    Otherwise, I'll probably join with an OC I've already created.

    Hope you're a good storyteller! :D
     
  4. TheGuy

    TheGuy Eye of Cthulhu

    Yes, your characters will have past experience (if you want them to), but like in RTN, they don't really have recollection of how or why they're here. I'll explain it all when the game starts.

    Alright
    --- Double Post Merged, Dec 2, 2017, Original Post Date: Dec 2, 2017 ---
    Also, what's the difference between base attack and basic attack?
     
  6. TheGuy

    TheGuy Eye of Cthulhu

    Base attack is the attack points if you just punch someone or something. Basic attack is the default or most basic attack you have (like if you were a swordsman, your basic attack would be swinging your sword). Don't ask me why I put this, because I honestly don't know why.
    Edit: found the notes I made for this. So basic attack, as I said is your default attack. Base attack is how much it does. Any other attacks and how much they do can go under the Ability section.

    Annd I'm back. Let's do this!

    Messis (@Madder)
    and
    Solen (@Mr. Fury)
    Location: The Tower of Darkness

    Messis wakes up, dazed. The last thing he remembers is... nothing. He has no idea how he got here, in this dimly lit, purple-walled room. Messis decides to look around, and sees a strange man in the corner. Meanwhile, Solen sees that the other person has finally woke up. Suddenly, the doors open and purple-flamed torches illuminate the room. You can now see that the room is just a purple room with no distinguishing features except for a well-worn couch. A knight in black armor walks in.
    "Greetings, champions. I am Loran. I rule under the great emperor. You may as well forget about your old lives, because they don't matter. Now, kneel before your master!"

    The Supressor (@IHATETHISSIGNUP)
    Location: The Mountains of Danai

    You wake up, in a very foggy mountain range. To your left is a giant black cube. To the right is a large kingdom, with people bustling about, seeming to be setting up stands to sell random crap. In front of you is a lanky man on a stool. He is working on some sort of cube. He tosses it up, and it transforms into a bird. He laughs. "Be free, little birdie!"
    He seems to notice you. He gestures for you to come to him.

    cocks his head sideways, and then slowly and, as usual, silently, towards the man.

    BTW ‘s “name” isn’t “The Suppressor”, its . “The Supressor” is just a cool nickname people sometimes call . If you at any point use “The Supressor” for simplicity, that’s fine, but remember that that’s not ‘s real name.
