Post Roll to Dodge - Island
Roll to Dodge (Original concept and rules by Mouse) is a turn-based role-playing game where your actions' success probabilities are determined with a dice.

--------------------
----- Rules:

Every turn consist of the rollers (players) posting their actions. I then post the result.

A maximum of 6 human rollers play at a single time. If you sign up when there are no open slots, you will be placed on the waiting list.

Your actions' success probabilities are determined with a dice. The success layout works like this:

6. Super success, possibly over-shot
5. Good success
4. Average success
3. Barely success
2. Fail
1. Super fail

Your success probability is also effected by certain conditions you have. For example, if your action is "Eat cake" and you have a condition that says "Missing Teeth", that may cause some problems for you.

Another thing to keep in mind, doing impossible (what is "impossible" depends on theme) things usually tend to completely fail. Like, creating a magic sword out of thin air.

Simple actions, such as walking and talking, aren't influenced by the dice roll. You can have a simple and a major action in the same turn.

Turn-posting format:

> Walk to John and punch him.
"Take that sucker!"


Note how actions are bold and underlined, while speech is in quotes and not underlined. The "punch" action will be affected by the roll, while 'Take that sucker!' and "Walk to John" will not.

In the game, you have limited space in your inventory and a limit on how many things you can wear. If you have some sort of bag equipped, you can use it to expand your inventory.

Things in the "Equipped" slot are worn, while things in "Inventory" are simply held onto.

Abilities let you do things you normally can't do, or they boost your performance somehow. If you had the ability "Photosythesis," you would regenerate health in the sun. Active abilites are abilites that you can conrol, while passive are automatic. You gain abilities through experiences, reading a book, or learning from someone else.

--------------------

I said one item!

One ability is allowed. (Not one in active AND one in passive though, 'cause 1 + 1 = 2)

BTW, slight rule revision to help clarification:
Quote:
Things in the "Equipped" slot are worn, while things in "Inventory" are simply held onto.

I'll roll later tonight after dinner.
