PC Masterclass - An Open Roleplay Challenge

Do you want to play a game?

Rules:
  • You may make a single; maximum 1500 word; in character post describing how you achieve the goal presented to you in the following scenario.
  • There are no follow up posts.
  • No edits.
  • No further explanations.
  • No Dice, Roleplay not Rollplay.
  • The ‘ruleset’ or settings in use will rotate capriciously with my moods and whims – which are predictable only through use of complex star charts carved into the walls of The Nameless City.
  • Only one submission per player per scenario, please.
  • I do not enjoy deus ex machina.
  • Be original.
  • Be generous with RPXP.
  • Be awesome. Don’t worry, you’re awesome just for participating.
  • In about two weeks, assuming people think this is fun, I will post a new scenario and hold an informal poll to see which solution people liked the best.
  • If this game catches on I will move it to primetime with its own folder for archives, OOC chat, etc...
  • Please put your post in spoilertags, and label your post as a submission. I will add a table of submissions with links into each scenario post.
  • The first deadline is 0000 EST, February 22, 2019.

The Challenge:
You are a young, but experienced Twi’lek Scout investigating a cave on a murky terrestrial world. Rumor has it that an old cache of supplies was hidden in the cave, but you were unlucky enough to trigger an old proximity frag mine someone left to prevent people, like you, from pillaging those supplies. You dodged much of the blast escaping with only minor scrapes, but the path out of this chamber is blocked with rubble. The height of the chamber reaches nearly fifteen meters and is roughly ten meters in diameter. After the explosion knocked a large portion of the roof loose you notice that several vents in the ceiling are periodically spewing out a noxious green gas, which is slowly filling the chamber. You estimate you’ve got three minutes, plus or minus one.

How do you get out of the cave alive?

You only have a few items in your possession; 2 throwing knives, a vibroblade, medpac, a utility belt, a blaster pistol, a few days of rations, binder cuffs, liquid cable dispensor (15 meters), a tool kit, short range commlink, 3 glow rods, and 1250 credits.

TL;DR Twi’lek Scout climbs up the wall and uses her blaster to set off the fumes. Explosion uncovers a path to an underground river. Underwater river leads to the supplies, conveniently right next to her ride out. Twi’lek Scout spends a lot of time in pain and scratched up. She does it all without pants

If it weren't for the last second, nothing would get done!

I’d like to thank everyone for their submission. The first round is now over.

For the second round I’ll do something the Pathfinder and DnD crowds can get behind, since they’re the most populous on site.

The Rules

Deadline: March 15, 2019

The Challenge: The wizard is dead.

The cleric went mad and threw himself in the unholy flames of Morgoth.

The dwarf got separated a few miles back – his leg caught in a bear trap.

And now here you are. Your black yew longbow in one hand, seven arrows left in your quiver, shaking with fatigue and dehydration – you stand in the bowels of the earth. Dark flames licking up from the depths of the underworld your goal is just a few dozen feet ahead. The glittering jewel you came for – the Starstone of Varundûr. Its glittering golden light illuminating its eternal protector. The ethereal undead demigod, Naraka Yama. He sees you with his cold grey eyes – pallid blue flesh stretched across his bloated frame. The stench from drowning in the primordial sea, you can smell it from here. It makes your eyes water.

You are a Ranger from Great Northern Plains, you fought in the war against The Mad Death, you are resolved. If you can retrieve the Starstone the suffering has been worthwhile. Fail, and if you’re lucky, your death will be swift.

How do you retrieve the Starstone of Varundûr?

Well, it appears no one is interested at this time.

I'll leave the thread open so anyone who wants the practice can still post.

Happy Gaming.
