    Default The "Rolled a 1" Game

    Ok, folks, I came up with a new game... I think. There might have been a game like this, but I don't know if there was... so let's leave it at that.

    Alright, here is how this game goes. There will be a Posted skill check for a specific action they will be taking, and the poster below you has to post a result from rolling a 1, or crit-failing, that took effect from their skill check. After that, the poster then posts a new skill check scenario.

    For example, lets say the poster above you said that there is a skill check they are making to push an orc off a bridge. The poster below them would say that they rolled a 1, and instead they lightly caressed his back.

    So let's get this trainwreck started!

    -----

    I am going to make a Persuasion check to parley with the elves that are poaching our tribe's boars.

    You accidentally say what is possibly the worst insult to elvenkind. Ever. You are captured and/or murdered in an appropriate fashion to the elves in question.

    You sleaze out the best chat-up line you can think of: "say, that gate isn't the only thing I'd like to enter, if you know what I mean *wink-wink*" The swift knee you receive between your legs tells you that the guard knew exactly what you meant, and she didn't like it.

    You yell "toss another shrimp on the barbie, you flamin' galah!" to little effect. A nearby Australian crocodile expert overhears you and takes offence at your stereotyping and terrible attempt at an Aussie accent. He responds by telling you "that's not a knife, THIS is a knife!" before pulling out a much larger sword than yours and joining the fight against you.
