The Great Gnome Journey- turn 4 (open for all)

Post by askstoomuch » Mon Aug 08, 2016 3:04 am

A long long time ago, in a land far far away, there was a dark and magical forest.
The forest was known by many names, none of which you knew, to you it was simply the forest, and you dont do silly things humans do like naming everything you see, or wash your self on frequent level.
No sir, you are a propper and respected gnome, all you care about is the great gnome journey.
And today, well today is the day that story begins.

Sure :)

Mac (Male).

Mac is an old man, with a deeply-rooted hatred for humans. He is surprisingly strong for his age and has a knack for fixing and making small mechanical objects. He is enormously stubborn and distrusts everything magical, believing it to be "unnatural" and the cause of almost as much trouble as humans. He walks with a cane, mostly so he can wave it around wildly while making long-winded points about the youth of today.

As theis and m0rt also requested a little more information ill make some up for you =p.

You are a gnome, not the cute little creature, big red hat, white beard wearing mushroom living goody two shoes that we all know and love.
In this game gnomes live in the dark scary forest, and play the leading role in many childhood nightmares, they are a misunderstood and badly mistreaded race, being forced off the human lands several hundred years ago, after they got blamed for crimes they never commited, because of this both races have a strong hatred for another, the orgin of this hate has long been forgotten by both sides. The humans carried on and concider a gnome to be nothing but the stuff of legend, a thing only the very young or very insane ever talk about.
The gnomes have never forgotten there hate,and have fortold off a great gnome journey a legend generation in the making, the plan is simple,figuring our how to do might be a little bit more tricky they have driven us from our lands oh so many generations ago, it's time we return the favor.

Pfft! Humans are clearly the cause of everything that is and has ever gone wrong in gnomish society and it's time they were taught a lesson. I recommend a hand-delivered, sternly-worded letter.

You can do this in ever way you want, in about a day when i have some more players i will make a first post, basicly introduction to what your suppose to do and qui k explanation of the rules (simpel dice based rules) the leader of the gnomes will set you off to your first mission which is reach a small settelment closest to the forest and drive the humans from your right full lands.
You wil be given weaponry and gear, new players can join when ever they want

Any more questions ? Im trying to be vague =p

What's the tone of the game going to be (comedy, serious, horror etc)?

I'm essentially curious as to how ridiculous I can go without screwing up the game :)

From the sound of it (and knowing asks) you can go full crazy horror with a pinch of comedy. Wearing peoples faces as a disguise would propably not be out of question :roll:

The Gnome Journey

Turn 1
A long long time ago, in a land filled with magic and wonder, there was a clan of gnomes the last of its kind. For generations the gnomes ruled the realm, living one with nature. That all changed when 293 year ago (or 7 gmometons, the average life span of a female gnome with blond hair, who only drinks and smokes during the great gnome festivities) the humans showed up from the northern realms, the were large cruel being that did not live in peace with nature but choose to make her nemd to there will. The first few years gnomes and man lived in peace, but man wanted more and more and took a little bit more of the lands of the gnomes every single day, soon the gnomes were forced to give up there lifes and move into human cities seeking employment. This happend more and more as the years passed and the gnomes quickly became cheap work forces to help meet the demand of the ever increasing greed of men.
All of this changed when 7 human children, 6 strong boys and such a angel of a girl disappeared. The blame quickly found the gnomes who claimed to innocent of all the accused crimes. Men didnt want to listen and the gnomes where kicked out of there homelands, all that didnt want to leave were butchered like cattle
The gnomes fled into the dark and magical forest surrounding the newly claimed human kingdom.
Waiting ever patiently for there moment off revenge.

Now 293 years later the time is here
3 choose warriors (choosen in a game of rock paper scissors) were selected to leave on a mission (suicide mission would be a better term) to scare the humans off there lands in what ever way possible
To help them to this the new chief a loud mouted wild haird madmen famous for his buisness succes, gave them a wide selection of gear to choose from
Come my fellow gnomes ! He yelled as they all gathered watch or heroes pick there weapons !

He first showed them a rack of clotches and armor to pick from (please choose one) a leafy outfit great for sneaking and stealing. A robe that will channel your bonds with mother nature, an armord outfit made out of discarded human cooking equipment which will give you plenty of protection

He then showed them a pile of weaponry, both rusty and cheap (please choose a weapon you want, every non magical weapon someone could get there hands on in the middle ages will do)

Third he had a poorly locked treasure chest clearly filled with discount magical artifects. He opened it and the gnomes could clearly see
-a fine cloak of bearskin
- an wristcrossbow clearly made by elven magic
- a black dagger
- a skeleton brass key
- A blue mug
- a pairy of glasses with tinted black glass in them
(Please only pick one)

Finally he you a detailed map of the human lands 3 places ar marked

Flatstone city, a large city, several hundred inhabitants, lots of dark alleys and abbondend buildings good place to hide and strike in the dark. Famous for it flatstone pizza

Sint smos monstary, famous brewery lots of strong ales and spiced wines come from here, beloved in all the human lands , nhabited by just a few monks

Tavern town, a wrongly named town. It only has 3 farms and a small inn favored by adventurers

Rat takes the leafy outfit, a dagger (or sword, for them) and the blue mug.

He then suggest to go to sint smos monastery, to pee in their ale and poison it!

"well I sure as shit ain't wearing no human-made garbage, so I guess I'll wear the dress! That cloak should cover it up OK...

And I guess I'll take my trusty cane. She's not let me down yet!"

So, unless the is has a preference, Mac will choose the robe, a quarterstaff and the cloak.

"HAH! You guys are STOOPID for not taking the super armor! also where's my axe?! Rat.. I'll piss in your ale for taking the blue mug.. Otherwise the plan sounds fine.."

Grot will take the armor, a battle axe and grab the glasses since he was so rudely robbed of a potential drinking mug.. Being forced to drink directly from the tap isn't the worst that could happen though.

There were only three outfits burns, and Mort got the leafy one already. You can have Mac's dress if you want it though? He'd probably rather wear normal clothes than sully himself with human or magical stuff.

Normally no, but i do support evil ideas. All of you will get general adventuring gear including a bucket so you can have a pickaxe
