Noctem de Magia Academy...Ice Cream Parlor?!
(Link to the main thread!)
Another event, another event thread! Welcome one and all to Noctem de Magia, Roliana's premeire school for magic. Though at the moment, something seems to be a bit...off. For one, the school's far too chilly, though given the heat outside that could be considered a blessing. For another, well....
The Great Hall is filled with ice cream. Everything in the central cafeteria is made from ice cream or it's friends; wafflecone walls, cookie tabletops, sugar-candy windows, and dollops of ice cream on the tables and stuck to the walls. It's a sugary, ice-creamy paradise! Or it would be, if we could figure out how to turn it back before the hall melts.
Oh, and there's sweet treat monsters randomly spawning in the halls and classrooms. Several of the staff have already ended up in the infirmary due to incidents with the melty, sweet-treat monstrosities. Thankfully, no students have fallen victim...yet. But as a precaution, all students are to be escorted to classes and dorms by a teacher (yes Daegon, this means you). But that doesn't mean there won't be a few, ah, enterprising students who decide to take on one of the confections themselves....
We got a minigame going on! Since there's ice cream monsters wandering the halls and causing all sorts of havoc, I figured it'd be fun to add a bit of a dice-rolling game to the event...as well as (maybe?) a bit of an RP element. Here's how it works:
A couple times a day (usually when I'm online/when I feel like it), there's going to be a "boss" come along--an ice cream monster. There'll be various flavors with different stats and abilities, dependant on the "flavor" of ice cream. Example:
For damage, you roll another d10. What you get for that is the damage done to the boss's Hit Points (HP). Once it's HP hits zero, it melts into an intert puddle of melted ice cream. Each Boss defeated earns the attacker(s) points equal to the Boss's difficulty rating (1-6).
But wait, there's more!
In addition to the hack-n-slash element, there's also a bit of stealth involved. Because of the fact that these ice cream monsters are a lot less sweet than your average dessert, the faculty is patrolling the halls. And you students fighting the monsters? Teacher avoidance. Here's how this part works:
After you've attacked the Boss, roll a percentile (two d10s; one for the tens column and one for ones). I'll roll one as well, and if you roll higher than I do then you successfully avoid the teacher. If I roll higher, then you get caught by a teacher and not only is the Boss insta-dead, you lose points according to its difficulty rating. So if you want to win, try not to get caught!
To keep things fair, I'm putting a restriction on the attacking: you can only attack the active Boss either once every fifteen minutes OR after at least one other person attacks. That way, it's (hopefully) a bit harder for one person to monopolize on the attacking!
As for winnings, I'll hand out one random rolipop from the event shop at the end of the event to the person(s) with the most points earned. Runners-up will get bust arts of their avatars ^^.
SCOREBOARD I hope to see you all having fun during the ice cream mayhem while it lasts! Happy hunting![/align]
