The Return to Therradin!


Hey folks! I’ve put together a very loose decision making dependent group game! For those of you who are experienced with games or perhaps visual novels which features ‘paths’ dependent on your choices then this is forum game is for you! Return to Therradin is first and foremost – a ‘team’ game – you’re not out to kill each other, you’re playing together with those of you that sign up. Keep that firmly in mind before signing up as you will require to chat amongst yourselves, this isn’t a game where you can sit quietly throughout and hope you go unnoticed. You must contribute to the group for the game to actually progress! Active forum gamers who genuinely wish to participate are encouraged!

Previous forum games of this manner that I’ve run:

The Thieves of Therradin. An adventure based on a group of thieves looking to rob a grand city, featured one armed gorillas, a butcher selling the group to a slave market, and even a goblin which got racially abused throughout the adventure!

The Survivors of the South. A zombie apoc adventure featuring a random old man rocking on a chair in the middle of nowhere, the strongest survivor dying within the first few decisions and a man with pants on his head winning a fist fight.

The Slaves of Sargos. A unlikely band of slaves had to tackle a magically enhanced labyrinth for their freedom.

Take part in this one if you’d like! 10 slots only. I've recently finished university so I have the free time to host a good game :)

A set routine of how this game will play out


Rules


Backstory



Scenarios

I'll be filling in the wiki for fun as we go along... probably. Couple of player profiles, locations, an event here and there.

Quote this post and add your name! 10 is a good number so we aren’t waiting on a lot of people.

I was actually thinking about limiting 'legend' players, people who have took part in these games before so we can see some fresh faces, guys like hawkeye/conqueror and such. But, I feel we need dedicated dudes who can read more than one paragraph so, old faces are welcomed too if there's any still lurking around >:3

A good leader has faith in his people. I trusted my followers to add my name and I was not disappointed.


Oh Juscha is joining. We'll be on the same team so don't try to kill me.

I underestimated your sadistic nature, I won't make the same mistake again :S

This is making my resume for becoming the leader again look bad

I hear Chabe wants to be leader these days, his resume includes;

Racism against goblins & other green-skinned friends.

Senile old man character who is unreliable.

Isn't heroic in the slightest.

It depends. If you're either a goblin, an orc, a gorilla, someone really young, someone really old, someone really innocent, someone too foolhardy, overly ambitious, a little crazy or even just a little knowledgeable, you're probably going to meet an unfortunate end.

If none of the above apply, well...you're probably in trouble anyway. Goodluck.

A word of warning for y'all newcomers. Orcs, goblins, ogres and their ilk are not to be trusted.
They're likely to stab you in the back, beat, maim, kill, rob or rape you. Trust me and don't trust them.

We are 10 adventurers but we have 5 tents. Does that mean that 2 people will share a tent. Depending on the answer, I may opt for tenting out tonight. Also, it won't be cold if we cuddle and use our body heat to keep warm...

(disappointed that us Thieves can't steal from the caravan's)

It really is a shame

I think we should either tent out and use our body heat to keep warm, or join with the travellers and go to the roadside inn (if there's trouble we can use the travellers as a distraction and run!)

fudge paying the caravans to let us join... unless we can steal stuff from them and get stuff worth more than what we gave. (we are thieves after all)

if we were the only ones going to the inn it would've been alright but you don't know if the other travellers would go and steal our stuff.

hmm if we sleep in tents we can indeed keep each other warm. We also got horses outside they would make noise if there's danger closeby right.

we don't know what kind of species is in the caravan, we have wapons to protect ourselves though, but if they're trained in combat we're doomed. If all they really ask is money it won't be too bad, but I think we can better safe that for when we need it more. Though what Jatz said about stealing the stuff doesn't sound too bad and we indeed are thieves. but do 10 people + the owners of the caravan really fit? lol

If we have tents, we may as well use them sooner or later. I figure once we get to Therridan we'll probably be relying on inns unless shenanigans occur. I'm wondering if people would be standing watch though whilst we're sleeping.

I'm leaning towards tents so long as we'll have people standing guard in intervals or something. I'm expecting us to get robbed otherwise because that'd just be a classic moment for us poor old "thieves".

Voting for option B (the tents). It's too risky to do much else, and as everyone has said, we can stand guard and huddle together to keep safe. I don't think we could pull off robbing a caravan just yet.

I don't think it wise that I share a tent with someone, I have uncontrollable urges. I can't help it, it's what I am.

I reckon we should go to the inn, it'll be safer for you guys that way and we might be able to steal some things whilst we're there.

You dirty thing, you.

My vote's already been cast, but I don't mind what the group ends up deciding to do.

A cold wind blows across the group, and the distant walls of Therradin do not look reachable tonight, they decide it’s time to settle down for the night. T

Don't get fooled by the cold wind because we're in the middle of summer.
Vexper said:

But it’s also the city which holds the annual ‘Mid-summer auction’. A week long selling bonanza whereby all the great merchant companies, gangs, organised crime syndicates, certified sellers and common folk gather together to sell and buy wares from all around the country.



Anyways our aim is to find a hidden treasure, a blank document with white ink on it. We need to get information which we may get from those travelers. In the backstory it's also written that

Vexper said:
in recent years the city has started to sprawl even further, outposts feature along all the main roads, highway robbers were lurking out amongst the rocky plains. Makeshift stalls were dotted everywhere, some of the boldest of traders had even established some traveling inns along some of the most well secured roads.

Maybe those people are going through one of those well secured roads and we could hop a ride.

Knowing Vexper though these people will eventually get attacked by robbers. Anyways I'm going to go with A or C.
