I would like - if I may - to take you on a strange journey. This was my favourite series of gamebooks as a kid, and I thought we could play through them together.Are you sitting comfortably?Then I'll begin.
First three posts to roll 2d6 get to determine LIFE POINTS.
rolled 1, 4 = 5Yo.
rolled 2, 2 = 45? Unforgivable!
rolled 6, 1 = 7>>8706096lawl
I turn to page 32...oh wait.. this isn't a choose your own adventure? Gay.
>>8706121I think it is actually, just with stats.
28 LIFE POINTSNext section. They do get smaller, I promise.
>>8706144Yes, it just gets off to a slow start because it's the first book and wants to set the scene and such.Roll to hit, let me know if you're trying to bop him on the nose.
rolled 6, 6 = 12Initiative, first die for Pip, second for Jake.
rolled 4, 1 = 5And again.
rolled 1, 4 = 5go for the nose, Pip!
rolled 4, 5 = 9Jake retaliates.
Pip: 12, 6 damageJake: 6Pip: 3Jake: 9, 3 damagePip: 8, to the nose, 0 damageJake: 5Pip: 4Jake: 4Pip: 6Jake: 7, 1 damagePip: 10, 4 damagePip Wins!
Strange men want to carry me off? They're clearly pedophiles. I put up a fight.
Pip points at Merlin and says "Fire Finger 1!" to try and set the old guy's beard on fire.
... shouldn't that be called lightning finger, then?
>>8708345Who the fuck gives a kid two wildly inaccurate, highly devastating fireball spells? That's like putting a nuke in your toddler's playpen.
>>8708420Could be worse. Could be Elminster
>>8708420Or leaving shotguns lying around everywhere.
Anyway. Since normal God-fearing people tend naturally to turn to the right, Pip goes left.
Pip chooses to speak politely, showing submission and waiting for him to present a better target for backstabbing.
I'm not wandering off into any bushes. Who knows what sort of deviants lurk there? CASTLE ONWARDS!
Oh fuck yes, I have Grail Quest books. My book was red and had an Imp on the cover, I think.Shit, when the power would go out, I'd break out a candle and go to town on those fuckers.
>>8709994http://homepages.tesco.net/~parsonsp/html/grailquest.htmlNot sure whether you mean 3 or 5 there. 3 is the first one I read and still my favourite. I should have started with that one, really, since there's less prologue.
Well, the book says he always leaves the portcullis open and the book would never lie, surely, so there's no need to dash and I should creep carefully!
Why are Chickens capitalised?
>>8710162Because it takes a lot of investment to get started in the agricultural industry, even in those days.
unless the game is cheating I don't have a secret chicken-talking ability, so I'll go check out the barrels. maybe some of them hold gunpowder.
>>8710069Oh shit, I meant The Castle of Darkness.
>>8710344Pip was talking to the chickens on his farm earlier. Which isn't to say that they understood or talked back.Barrels it is.
GO TO 14GO TO 14GO TO 14GO TO 14GO TO 14
no option to turn the barrels into a giant flaming mass of burning apple booze? Alas.i'll probably regret ignoring the chickens later but for now let's take the steps up
rolled 4, 3 = 7is it time to die horribly yet?
well, if that puts me back at the chickens i can try talking to them, and then they can peck at my open wounds.
>>8710908Shit, attacking my life points directly...!
LIFE POINTS: 18>>8711066And they do.
rolled 4, 2 = 6am i dead yet?
>>8710772All things come to he who waits.>>8711536Yes. That is a classic first death, you should be proud.
Aww. Didn't we start over?
>>8713478I'm tired, I think we'll call it a night and start from the forest tomorrow or something.
