CCCP # 1

Recommended Posts

What:

 

- A random encounter (adventure would be "HCCP - as in, Hardcore Community Contribution Project), where one person starts the story and the others each pick up 1 - 1 exit and continues from there.

 

How:

 

- The topic starter begins a new story and finishes it without providing exits. The next contributor adds an exit with its required rolls, flavor texts, rewards, etc.

 

- Only "rule" is to try creating matching sections. Length, tone should be consistent throughout the whole if we wish to run these babies for the DLCs...

 

Why:

 

- It should be fun, and fun it shall be.

 

- Putting our resources together, we should be able to create quality encounters relatively fast (as each contributor only has to pay attention to a given section of the whole, the individual sections should be deeper than otherwise)

 

- It could create a never ending bond between the modding krew (which is kinda small at the moment, but it could change any day...)

 

----

 

You just love sleeping, but who doesn't, right? The layers of warm blankets upon layers of sheets with the smell of spring...it's a piece of heaven, especially during times of heavy study.

 

Getting up in the cold, hitting your face with icy water, shoving down some unwanted food your throat while the soothing images of your now cooling bed still lingers in your memories however, is what you really hate. And Mondays.

 

Magic and power is for the strong and willing to take, and as such you slip into your comfortable (yet slightly fluffy) slippers and embark on the perilous journey which finally leads yout to the bathroom. After a few essential stops there you are ready for another step down the path of a successful mage - making your teeth shine like the Glass Towers of Verdia.

 

While trying to recall that dream you had about a weeping wall your brushing slowly halts to a stop. Looking into your own eyes in front of the mirror, you can't help but to notice the complete lack of hair on your head. Not that you don't look good with your now shining head, still this mysterious absence of hair bothers you.

 

This is going to be one of those weeks...again.

Exit 1

EXIT TEXT

Negation. This looks suspiciously like a prank.

 

TEST

Insight/Negation Vs. 6

 

SUCCESS TEXT

No hair, hu. Come on guys, you may not have had your warm chocolate yet, but still, that's so underestimating it's nearly insulting!

 

So they think you wouldn't remember the prank @random male student@ (referred to as @pranker@ after) pulled on @random female student@, that suddenly caused her nose to vanish in class?

 

Peuh-lease.

 

Well, you don't happen to have your wand with you in the bathroom and you can hear snickers outside, so your trusty toothbrush will have to do the trick.

 

You carefully trace a toothpaste circle on the floor and close it, isolating yourself from outside magical interference.

 

Concentrating, you try to get a better awareness of the way the prank was pulled on you. It seems very easy, with a framework of revision thrown in with a touch of glamour for the details. Your hair is still here, it has just been... shrinked, and skin colored.

 

You decide a simple dispel will do the trick, and while you're nearly sad to destroy @prankster's@ work of art, you get around to casting it.

 

The problem with such a fine spell is that any metaphorical blow will tear it apart. Your dispel has the effect of a bar of soap thrown at a pirate. The inconvenience immediately disappears.

 

Oh, well, here actually goes quite a valid excuse for skipping class. Anyway, you still feel proud of your work.

 

SUCCESS EFFECT

+1 composure

smooth pheme obtained

The problem with isolating yourself from magical influence is that your own magic cannot get out. While doing all your preparation and analysing, it has seeped around, and concentrated more and more in the space around you.

 

As a result, when you finally get around to casting your dispel, its intensity is amplified a thousandfold. A big flash, a great bang.

 

When you finally manage to open your eyes, you directly check out on the damage. Legs, check. Ribs, check. Hair...

 

Looks like your thin shrinked hair didn't survive the explosive spell. You've just literally dispelled your own hair!

 

Awwww man... this story is going to stick to you until the end of times!

 

FAILURE EFFECT

Embarrassed

Stress +2

-1 to charm for 12 rounds (hair re-grown magically let's say :) ).

EXIT TEXT: Court Hairstyles: Bald is Beautiful! Wear it with style.

 

Charm/Court Hairstyles vs ?

 

SUCCESS:

 

Darling, don't you realise, bald is in! All the fabulous ladies and gentlemen of the court are doing it after Lady Orvilla, fashionista extraordinaire, had that unfortunate encounter with a drunken barber and a pair of shears. There's nothing quite so beautiful as the light of the sun reflected off of a depilated scalp! Luscious tresses are so last week!

 

You hold your head high with confidence, secure in the knowledge that you're following the latest court trends, and soon the sniggers of the other students turn to envious glances. By the time the spell wears off and your hair returns in its full glory you've managed to persuade several of the other students to shave their heads as well. It's almost a pity you've rejoined the haired masses.

 

SUCCESS EFFECT:

+2 Confidence.

 

 

 

FAILURE:

 

Try as you might you can't seem to persuade any of the other students the Sixt von Rupprecht look is one worth emulating. They snigger and point at you as you walk down the hall, @Random Male Student@ complains in class that the light bouncing off of your nude noggin is distracting him from his work, and worst of all you've picked up a nickname that will likely plague you for months. After the hundredth cry of "Baldie Egghead!" you resort to wearing that really ugly hat you got for your birthday until your hair regrows. Anything is better than bald.
