Title: Stupid Things You Would Do
Post by: Cind on November 16, 2018, 11:06:09 AM
If it didn't hurt anybody and you could do something stupid in the game, what would it be?

I would probably make a throne of dwarf bones and skulls because I both admire and loathe them, from past experiences in the game.

I would sit on it and drink Fale noble's blood from a cup made of gold and diamonds because Fales love to party.

Then I would retire from my magnificent throne and expect everyone to treat me exactly the same way as before and go about their business like nothing had ever happened.

I suppose I ought to throw in magickal happenings or some kind of crime wave that was my fault, but I don't feel like it. Maybe for a RL day, prices would be super low due to a kind of economic bubble similar to Black Friday. People would then associate me and my dwarf bone throne with those super, super low prices.

Actually ask the crowd at the Arena where I can get a mimosa in this bitch.

Crowd surf the arena during a match.

Build some sandcastles and stick little flags made from scrap cloth and bundled stick figures and play pretend.

I'd introduce items that have no business being in the canon, such as three dildos I designed once but did not decide to waste mc tries on, stress balls (because life in Zalanthas is stressful and I love those things), different types of food that would break the game if sandwiches really are retro-removed like they say (such as pasta and pizza) and those little items that are such a thrill for millennials like me, such as an obsidian pendant in the shape of Pikachu.

There would be five new caves in the game, two of them hard to access, which would contain permanent glued-to-the-floor altar items that have their own string of code. For example, if you brought two candles to an altar item and put them inside the altar (it would be a container, like a table is) then they would automatically light and last three RL days, and a few hours since some people would do this at peaktime.

You'd be able to

>l viciously.spiked

This altar, to those who have been, looks remarkably like the architecture of Luir's, enough to give pause. Thick, black sides and arching, thick black spikes made of obsidian pierce the air at a normal human's shoulder height. The bottom of the altar appears to have remained unfinished out of the cavern floor itself, perhaps to aid to keeping the heavy thing upright. This creative lack of finishing allows for the impossible removal of the altar itself without heavy tools. The whole thing gleams underneath whatever dim torchlight is brought to bear near it.


>put thin.taper altar

>The figure in a dark, hooded cloak places a candle upon the altar and lights it.

Wear an electric guitar made out of mekillot bone and obsidian on my back.

And fucking shred.

... I seriously thought about a pickpocket/magick_subguild_that_offers_invis who roams the wastes and "plant"s 'sids and sometimes items on every creature. So for a jozhal it's only five 'sids, for a scrab it's 20 'sids, for a bahamet it's 400 'sids and a silk dress.

Imagine the faces of the new players who find coins in animals just like every H&S MUD.

You die.

Was one step removed from this. Made a bard-like PC sub-linguist who only sang Death Metal in Mirukkim. Basically just translated Cannibal Corpse lyrics into Zalanthan and spoke mirukkim.

The plan was to, eventually, find an elkrosian or krathi who could do special effects.

A dwarf or half-giant singing this Dethklok song would legit be the funniest shit ever to me.

Whenever I get the message that a PC has died:

goto pc.corpse
arrange corpse with its skull cut open and brains eaten.

Start singing "Always look on the bright side of life" when part of a group about to die in the arena.

Gather an adventuring party and sit down in the upstairs of the bards barrel to roll up characters and embark on a pencil and paper adventure in an alternate world.

Quote random movie lines, for no reason.

The smirky, dark-haired man has arrived from the east, carrying a small basket.

The smirky, dark-haired man exlaims, in sirihish:
"We came! We saw! We kicked it's ass!"

I tried to introduce rosaries as a thing, although I suppose if staff wanted to retroactively ban sandwiches then euro-style rosaries were out of the question. I think you can still do prayer beads, though, although coded objects don't exist in the game.

I have this urge to have my own Pikachu follow me around in the game, that I got around Professor Baobab.

Sandwiches and sunglasses.

Sandwiches and sunglasses.

Sunglasses, I can understand, to a degree. That is exceeding the level of technology they want to see IG. Sandwiches...I mean, putting a piece of meat between two pieces of bread, while delicious, doesn't seem like a technological miracle or anything.

I don't think it's the level of technology that's at issue but rather the word itself.  I, personally, do find the word rather jarring and anachronistic in the game just as I would a "carru burger" or the like.

That's true. A sand witch is a totally different concept in Zalanthas. People would probably avoid calling food that. It doesn't stop me from OOCly getting hungry every time someone mentions a Sand Witch, though. :D

Sand Witch is my character's (unsuccessful) prostitute name.

Edit: I'm not too sure that something sunglasses-like is beneath the technological level of Zalanthas..it'd just be something you wouldn't see outside of a curiosity item used by Nobility or young Merchant House family members looking to make a name/brand themselves.

Something else stupid I'd do...now I'm getting a slue of things I might actually want to do, IG.  Stupid, sure, but they'd be fun.

Honestly? I want this thread to live forever. I know that's not the case, but you guys should spill what dumb, awful or interesting things you would do if the game would let you.

I think I would join a group that all my friends were already in and help raise them to stardom and wealth and power simply because it was a group all my friends were in. Also, I'd convince them to adopt a trademark gesture, symbol, phrase, or the like, and it would be absolutely Hello Kitty My Little Pony, neutering-level cute. Mostly, I'm thinking of a group of gritty, rough, hardcore raiders I used to be friends with, but wasn't actually in, back in the day.

Hahahaha Yes!  And finally get frustrated with the concept, flip the table, kill everyone in the room and then yourself.  Get everyone to roll up new characters and do it all over again.   ;D

There is nothing saying you can't come up with an Armageddon based DnD ;)

Have fun figuring out how the system should work tho, seeing as he only have d6...and can't read and write...pictures work!

I'd suggest Cards Against Humanity...but let's face it, that's everyday life in Armageddon.

Oh! Oh!

Cards FOR Humanity! Every answer card means the Templar or the Noble or the crazy gortok who hasn't eaten in three months won't kill you!

This is the wrong thread for this, this belongs in a "Shit you should do for Christmas time in Arm" thread.
