There was once a goblin clan, simple and self-sufficient. Like many goblin clans, their needs and lives were uncomplicated and carefree, respectively. The only real concern was the occasional adventurer wandering through and killing them for XP.

For this particular clan, the MAFIASCUM CLAN, no adventurers had come into the area in many years. For this reason, the clan was prosperous and growing. One day, though, a goblin went out foraging in their usual area near a cave, and heard some strange sounds coming from within. This was the first anyone in the clan had ever heard of such a thing coming from this cave.

After some discussion among the elders, the Chief of the clan eventually decided he would explore the cave and make it safe for everyone. The Teller told him that she foresaw many more dangers than he would be ready for, so together they picked out six strong goblin men and women. After some training and a motivational speech, the group entered the cave, ready for the mysterious dangers inside.

rulesThis game uses a very simple set of mechanics. Each of the 8 goblins will be controlled by one player. Most goblins have the following stats:
5 HP (health points)
1 ATT (attack strength)
1 DEF (how much ATT you can take in 1 turn before losing HP)

These stats can be improved with items you collect in the dungeon.

The Clan Chief, who will be elected pre-game, will have the following stats:
6 HP
2 ATT
2 DEF

The Clan Teller, chosen by the chief, will have the commonplace stats, as well as the following ability:
Each turn, for your action, you may choose to heal one goblin in the same room as you for 1 HP.

Additionally, there may or may not be items that function differently when possessed by a Chief or Teller.

Each turn, all goblins will have 1 Move and 1 Action to do in either order, both of which are optional.
1 Move brings you to an adjacent room. If this if the first time anyone in your clan has seen this room, this ends your turn.
1 Action can be used to do any of the following:
-Attack a creature or object
-Pick something up
-Interact with something in the environment
-Move 1 extra room
-Trade items with a fellow goblin
-Inspect something closely
-Anything else that I feel would take your whole turn to accomplish

The following are free actions, meaning you can do them as much as you want on any turn:
-Moving within a room
-Talking
-Swapping an item you're using with one in your inventory
-Looting any number of items from a creature you killed or helped kill the previous turn
-Dropping any number of items on the ground
-Being generally aware of your surroundings
-Anything else that I feel wouldn't take any time at all

It's always everyone's turn. Whoever posts first acts first that turn (Also, looted items go to: [a player who killed the owner of the item on the previous turn] before [a player in the same room as the item] before [a player in an adjacent room]. This takes precedence over posting order).

Goblins cannot choose to attack each other. Your inventories are limitless but separate. Your group has a psychic link which allows you to communicate with each other and see each other's surroundings. When a goblin dies, they may magically send one item to another living goblin. The rest of their items must be buried with the corpse, SO SAYS CLAN LAW.

I will be posting M/W/F, usually in the EST afternoon. If you don't post between my posts, your goblin doesn't move or act. If you need to go v/la, you can elect any player or non-player to post in your place till you get back.

The dungeon is dangerous, and some things should not be faced alone. That said, this game will feel slightly silly if the eight of you stick together as one group the entire time, so feel free to go your own way.

beginningYour goblins need names!

Goblin naming conventions are based on the Teller's predictions about their life at birth. All goblins have names like "Seeks-to-be-Free" or "Breaks-a-Leg" or "Becomes-Vegan". Pick a name (any name) like this for your goblin, please.

Anyone who wishes to take themselves out of the running for chief/teller may immediately pick any of the other six colors.
Whoever has the most votes for Chief in (expired on 2019-04-29 09:30:00) will become Chief (and preferably will have already picked a Teller).

Since being Chief or Teller or having a specific color will not affect your first actions, you may also begin to post those immediately, regardless of whether or not your color/position has been officially decided. My update will come sometime Monday.

You're in the first room of the dungeon. What do you do?

Sorry to those who didn't make it! I planned this game with 8 players in mind, and this seemed like a fair way to do sign ups. I'll message the four of you if I ever need a replacement (which, if a player ever misses 3 updates in a row without asking someone to post actions for them, they will be replaced). Thanks for showing interest! <3

Chief Probably-Shouldn't-Be-Here and Teller Seeks-Worldly-Truths have been decided!

The other goblins have been named:
Freezes-Balls-Off
Refuses-Cookie
Worships-Artichoke
So-When-Does-The-Prophecy-Start-Oh-It-Already-Started-Wait-So-Is-This-Also-Part-Of-The-Name-Well-Oops
Bowls-with-Balls
Burns-It-All-To-Ashes

And yes, feel free to call each other nicknames! (looking at you, Oops :shifty: )

If you have not yet posted actions for the first turn or chosen a color, and would like to, you've got about six or so hours before I post the first update. Anyone who doesn't claim a color will just have one assigned (red, magenta, green, and yellow remain).

Well your Teller ability sure seems magical! Other than occasional Teller foresight and Teller healing, your clan of goblins is not used to goblins doing magic, though, no.

turn 1All goblins remember their names, and are ready to go!

Image

Oops looks around the room. He sees two treasure chests, two skeletons, and a large green gelatinous cube. Also, he sees that in addition to the entrance to the room, there are at least two more exits - one up and to the right and another past the skeletons - plus this large set of silver doors on the lower level with a button on the wall next to it.

Bowls-With-Balls looks for weapons. He finds a sword of some kind, but it's inside the large gelatinous cube. Up to him if he wants to try to get it.

Burns-It-All-To-Ashes picks up a torch. It feels right. Freezes-Balls-Off does the same. [see spoiler below for item information]

Worships-Artichoke charges the skeletons, and randomness decides for him that he will attack the left skeleton. As far as he can tell he does no damage. Meanwhile, the skeleton hits him for -1 HP.

Teller Seeks-Worldly-Truths decides that that looks fun, and does, um... the exact same thing (though randomness pits him against the other skeleton). -1 HP.

Refuses-Cookie and Chief Probably-Shouldn't-Be-Here guard the door. Feels like it needs guarding, you know?


Spoiler: New Item
Torch. +1 ATT while lit.
Tags: 1-handed, Fire


Spoiler: Notes
Generally, "looking around the room" shouldn't need to be an Action. If there's something you want to examine, pick that thing as your Action. If you're not sure what I drew, ask, and I'll tell you whether it should be obvious (how dare you insult my art) or whether you need to examine it to find out. In this case, though, it functioned well as an opportunity to introduce this first room, so thank you.

When attacking enemies in a group, you can decide whether you'd like to pick one out or (by default) let randomness decide. The rolls of the dice determined that you'd each attack a different skeleton, which may or may not have made you less effective at hurting them.

I won't be posting updates of each goblin's status at every round (things like inventory, HP, etc), but I will keep track of them, so if you need to know where you're at, just ask!

Chief Probs and Cookie need to post within the next 2 turns or I'll begin looking for a replacement.

TURN 2
Image

Cookie wants to open the chest in the bottom right, but realizes the gelatinous cube is entirely in the way. Upon getting close to the jelly, it attacks him. -1 HP.

Burns attacks the skeleton on the right, doing minor damage to it. It hits him back for -1 HP. Freezy has a similar situation play out with the skeleton on the left. -1 HP.

Arti tries to climb the wall, but finds absolutely no grip. Meanwhile, Seeks heals Arti for 1 HP.

Chief Probs joins Cookie in longing for a treasure chest he cannot yet reach. Thankfully, the jelly does not attack him.

Bowls... jumps into the gelatinous cube. He does manage to touch the sword, but he realizes the jelly is going to be too thick to actually swing it. He also realizes he has limited time before he starts losing health because of a lack of oxygen.

Meanwhile, Oops decides he needs to know what's in the room to the right. The magic dungeon game rules prevent him from seeing anything until he enters the room, so he walks to the next room, finding...

Image

6 pairs of colored buttons, a purple hallway that curves away into the wall, and a vague awareness that there's more going on underneath him, though he has no way of seeing what that is.

He also remembers that goblins (at least in this universe) have dark vision, and in most cases don't need a direct source of light.


Spoiler: Notes
Y'all seem to think this dungeon is made to be real easy or something! It's got "Doom" in the name, folks. You gotta work for the those treasure chests!

All players are 3 missed turns from being replaced.

turn 3
Image

Burns, Freezy, and Probs finally realize the power of teamwork and attack the skeleton on the right together, killing it. It drops a grey coin, which disappears into Hammerspace until the fight is over. Meanwhile, the "skeleton on the left" decides it doesn't like that name and moves to the right. Both skeletons attack Burns, causing him -3 HP (for those of you watching at home, I'll go ahead and call this one out: 1 HP remaining).

Arti outsmarts the dungeon master and jumps down a level to get to the chest. He does indeed manage to open the chest, revealing a red and blue shield, just before getting attacked by and sucked into the jelly. Combined with the sting of jumping down a floor, Arti takes -2 HP.

Bowls struggles to breathe, but bites down on the jelly. He takes -1 HP, and he thinks the jelly was hurt by his attack, but shucks if this thing isn't big - hopefully he can hold his breath long enough for it to die.

Seeks heals himself to full health, and then takes a deep breath. He's got his work cut out for him.

Image

In the other room, Oops presses the right lime green button. The floor rumbles slightly. Then Cookie presses the left purple button.

Image

The purple hallway rotates to the left, revealing... more skeletons. Dumb.

Spoiler: Notes
It didn't feel this unbalanced pregame...

All players are three missed turns from being replaced.

In all fairness to my sense of balance pregame, I did assume some things about what kind of actions y'all would take early on.
But I don't apologize for the difficulty - it's THE DUNGEON OF DOOM!

Friendly reminder that you each have ONE Action per turn. I would interpret this as two Actions, and when I am left to interpret a multiple-Action turn description I randomize the final result.

Yes, there are two purple buttons (right and left).

Cookie presses a button, and is relieved to see the purple hallway spin back in the other direction, hiding away the three skeletons from before.
Oops picks up a torch.

Image

Seeks heals Burns 1 HP.
Burns, Freezy, and Probs kill the second skeleton, while its dying swing hits Freezy for -1 HP. 1 Skeleton Coin pops out of hammerspace. Burns, Freezy, and Probs have dibs.

Arti tries to swing his arms, but realizes that sort of attack is ineffective when stuck in goo.
Bowls tries to use magic powers he does not have.
Both take -1 HP for not breathing.

Freezy picks up the Skeleton Coin (see notes for description). Then he(?) and Oops attack the cube of goo! They can tell they're doing some damage, but it seems the goo probably still has more than half its life left. The goo in turn attacks Freezy for -1HP.

From inside the goo, Arti tries to swim out. He manages to get to the edge of the goo for just long enough to take a breath, before feeling himself be pulled back inside. Well, at least he didn't take damage for not breathing. He also gets the feeling that if he worked with another goblin he could get out of this thing.

Bowels pees himself a little. He can't breathe, but Seeks heals him, negating the damage he would otherwise take this turn.

Chief Probs guards the door.
Image

Cookie grabs the remaining torch from the purple hallway.
Image

Burns runs left, and finds a pink lever, a wall fountain, a dangerous looking floor and a single kuo-toa (frog-person).


Spoiler: New Item
Skeleton Coin. Has a carving of a skull on both sides.

You don’t, no. The weapon and shield inside the cube are still in the possession of the cube. If you are trying to escape it, though, you can try to bring one item with you. Remember that looting a single item from the environment is in most cases your full action.

turn 6
Image

Seeks heals Arti, undoing the lack-of-breathing damage he would take this turn.

Cookie attacks the goo, clearly doing damage. Though the goo doesn't have a face, it's obviously becoming uncomfortable with the amount of damage it's taken. The goo deals -1 HP to Cookie.

Bowls escapes the goo with Freezy's help. Yay breathing!!!

Arti relaxes in goo suspension. Probs and Oops stand watch.

Image

Burns tries to burn the metal lever. The pink paint *sizzles* and darkens slightly.


Spoiler: Notes

Brassherald is 1 missed turn away from being replaced.
Felissan and Krazy are 2 missed turns away from being replaced.

turn 7
Image

Oops, Freezy, Cookie, and Bowls attack the slimy cube. They do significant damage. The goo hits Oops back for -1 HP.

Arti, Probs, and Burns (peeking from the other room so I don't have to publish multiple images this turn) think from a distance, "huh, I bet if one or two of us had tried attacking this round, the goo would be dead." None of them move. Arti takes -1 HP for not breathing.

Seeks glares at each of them as he heals Freezy for 1 HP, though his glowy eyes make it hard to tell.

Iconeum has elected Ausuka to post actions for Bowls while Iconeum is v/la for a couple weeks.

Announcement


I am going on vacation from Friday, May 31 to Sunday, June 9th. I will not be able to update this game's art, so I will not be able to update the game to reflect your actions until June 10th. Any time between now and June 10th, feel free to post your action for the next turn.

In the meanwhile, all goblins who are not the chief or teller are missing at least 1 HP (and y'all are missing way more health than I intended by turn 7, oops!), so we're gonna do a HEALTH GAIN MINI GAME! All goblins will have a chance to gain one health for themselves or a clanmate.

Details to come sometime between now and Friday.

HP RECOVERY MINI GAMEYour mini game is Farkle!

You each get three turns. You do not have to take your turns in order, so feel free to take all three of your turns right after reading this.

For every 1000 points you earn, your character earns 1 HP, which you can assign to your own goblin or another, needier goblin.

Hopefully things will be more balanced from here

A single 1 or 5 can always count as 100 or 50 points, respectively.

Whenever you have successfully set all 6 dice aside, you get to roll all six again as part of the same turn.

Sorry if the rules are unclear. I’ll double check your rolls and scores later today or tomorrow to make sure nobody cut their own scores short

HP regain mini gameDue to some confusion regarding the rules (and wanting to avoid a long time re-explaining the minigame and playing it out), you all get +1 HP! Chief and Teller, let me know who you want to take your HP, since neither of you need it.

turn 8
Image

Most goblins attack the slime cube! It dies! It drops a sword, a shield, and a lime green coin. Everyone except Seeks, Arti, and Burns have first dibs.

Arti, meanwhile, makes his way back over to the chest, which still holds a red and blue shield. Everyone in the room has first dibs. Seeks heals Arti.

Burns remains in the other room.


Spoiler: Notes
It makes a Slorp sound as it disintegrates into the floor. This doesn't matter, it's just a fun fact.

All current players are 3 missed turns from replacement, except for Xalxe.
Looking for a replacement for Xalxe.

turn 9
Image

Seeks heals Freezy, who eyes him up to see if he thinks he could throw him up to the chest (too much work to show Freezy failing to throw a goblin, since no goblin volunteered). Both hold their new shields (see Item Descriptions below).

Chief Probs grabs the coin (see Item Description below).

Cookie presses the button next to the double doors. Everyone hears a low, distant hum from below the floor. After a few seconds, there is a loud THUMP and the hum goes away.

Burns rushes into the room to help with the gelatinous cube. He notices he's a little late to that party.

Oops and Bowls guard the door. A sword sits on the floor, unclaimed. Nobody has dibs.

Image

In the next room, Arti presses the left teal button, and hears a faraway rumble below him.

Spoiler: New Items
Wooden Shield. +1 DEF.
Tags: 1-handed

Captain's Shield. +1 DEF. Can be thrown for 2 ATT anywhere within the same room as the holder, and it will return.

activity rule changeWhenever a player misses three turns, they will go into ~Shared Mode~. This means anyone can post actions for that goblin, until their player returns to or a new player comes along to claim them.

turn 10

Bowls and the Chief watch as Burns loots the sword. (see Item Description below).

In the next room, Oops asks Freezy and Arti which buttons they've pressed so far. Nobody responds... :shifty:

In the room left of the main room, Seeks heals Cookie back to full health, while Cookie pulls the lever, Kronk!
Things... change.
