Risky Roulette Plus

#1

Post by S1x » Sat May 12, 2018 3:21 pm

Welcome to Chanceland Arena! I am proud to announce that when you enter this thrilling unpredictable stage, you will certainly die.

Exciting, right?! How can one resist?

When you walk in, you receive your first Plus Card called Standard Survival. It grants you 15 Health Points and puts yourself in play in the arena. I have enemies waiting to smack that HP to 0. Every round, they will attack at least once. To defend yourself, you will have actions you can perform each round as well; some hurt the enemy, some buy you time, and some may annoy the other players trying to stay alive. If you manage to defeat the enemy (good luck with that), they will drop a bunch of Plus Cards that you can collect to enhance your survival further against the next one. However...

Every action or Plus Card you select has a Roulette Point value. Every time the total RP reaches a certain amount, I will spin a colorful wheel and perform an extra attack on you based on what it landed on. No matter what strategy you may try to deploy, I have some way of ruining your dreams.

Before showing you your first enemy, we need to see how many people choose to step in at the very beginning. This will also determine what the first RP threshold is. Anyone can enter at any time, and there may be times you strategically want to delay entering until certain things have passed. Your goal is to stay alive longer than anyone else who participates. If you die, you can re-enter (after a short cooldown) to beat your record, help others, or maybe even hinder others. Re-entering will be unavailable late in the thread, but the game only ends when everybody dies. :)

Details on RP and Minus Spins
Spoiler.
The RP threshold is:
40RP + 20 more for each living player. Only recalculates after a Minus Spin.

*S1x's Possible Attacks (aka Minus Spins)*
Heart Break - Deal 6 damage to a player. Damage reduction is cancelled and turned into a damage increase.
Chanceland Missiles - Shoot 3 missiles that deal 4 damage to random players. For each one that misses, fire 10 more missiles.
Diamond Dust - Deal 3 damage to each player. If they used the default action all of the last 3 rounds, deal 15 damage instead.
Club Smash - Deal 10 damage to a player. 50% chance to Stun them. (Stun = Actions are limited to Rest and Recover Now.)
Hard Drop - Add a Tetromino to the field. It counts as a player with 4HP, and auto-casts Line Clear each round. (Line Clear = Deal 1 damage to EVERYBODY.)
Spade Skewer - Deal 8 damage to a player. They will recieve 3 more damage from attacks next round.
Annihilation - Cast Heart Break, Diamond Dust, Club Smash, and Spade Skewer in order. If nobody died, repeat this.

*The Wheel*
0 Green - Annihilation
1 Red - Heart Break
2 Black - Chanceland Missiles
3 Red - Diamond Dust
4 Black - Club Smash
5 Red - Hard Drop
6 Black - Spade Skewer

10 Black - Club Smash
11 Black - Spade Skewer
12 Red - Hard Drop
13 Black - Chanceland Missiles
14 Red - Heart Break
15 Black - Club Smash
16 Red - Diamond Dust
17 Black - Spade Skewer
18 Red - Hard Drop
19 Red - Heart Break
20 Black - Chanceland Missiles
21 Red - Diamond Dust
22 Black - Club Smash
23 Red - Hard Drop
24 Black - Spade Skewer
25 Red - Heart Break
26 Black - Chanceland Missiles
27 Red - Diamond Dust

31 Black - Chanceland Missiles
32 Red - Heart Break
33 Black - Club Smash
34 Red - Diamond Dust
35 Black - Spade Skewer
36 Red - Hard Drop


Because this is the very first game, this will be highly experimental and you may see me making adjustments mid-game if I feel it's necessary. thanks for bearing with me

Your first enemy is:

Annoying Squirrel
Image
This critter has been trained to repeatedly throw sharp objects at people staying in the buffet too long. This makes it a great fit for the arena.

This enemy has 1 move for every 3 players (minimum 1). Its possible moves are:
Spoiler.
Bite - Deal 5 damage.
Tail Smack - Deal 5 damage.
Falling Stick - Deal 2 damage. Increase Nuts by 1.
Forage The Arena - 25% chance to dodge attacks this round. Increase Nuts by 2.
Throw Voice - Confuse a player.
[Nuts >=1] Snack Break - Heal half your missing HP. Decrease Nuts by 1.
[Nuts >=1] Acorn Lob - Deal 9 damage. Decrease Nuts by 1.
[HP <=50%] Gliding Bomber Squirrel - Deal 7 damage to a random player. If there is greater than 1 Nut, decrease Nuts by 1 and repeat.
[Black Space] Bounce Off Heads - Deal 6 damage to each player that did not deal damage to you this round.
[Red Space] Fury Swipes - Deal 4 damage to random players X times. X equals the number of times you were hit this round.

Round 1
Annoying Squirrel's HP: 90/90
S1x's RP: 0/100

Random User: 15/15 HP, 0 rounds

Available Actions (You will select the default action if you do not respond in time. You will have at least 48 hours, and can change your action if I haven't yet updated)
Wait (20RP) - Do nothing this round. This is the default action.
Shoot (6RP) - Deal 3 damage.
Crafty Decoy (25RP) - 50% chance to dodge attacks this round.

That's what I was thinking of picking. Since you've volunteered to go first I'll go with that second as long as RU doesn't also do that.
