After much petty bickering amongst themselves, the gods have finally come up with a way to determine which among them has the most loyal of followers. They decided that they each would pick one human among their followers to be their champion and represent them in a labyrinth of challenges. The first human to retrieve the artifact at the center of the labyrinth and return it to their god's altar will be granted the gift of immortality and become like unto a god themselves.
This RP will be Roguelike in that characters may grow far more powerful as they overcome trials, but more importantly death will be permanent. Expect to make more than one character, as your first (and probably many more after that) will certainly die. So don't get too attached. This RP is meant to be challenging, yet still roleplay oriented. While it is certainly up to the players how to Roleplay their characters, I hope to see teamwork, betrayal, and plenty of PVP.
Gameplay: In this game we will be using dice to ensure a fair game for everyone, as well as to spice things up with a little random factor. Players will not need to worry about any stats or dice rolls however, as all of that will be handled by me, your benevilent GM. The GM, and his dice, will have the final say in everything.
Each turn, players will be presented with the next room their character encounters. The player then makes a post for how their character intends to overcome that room's challenge, as well as the exit they intend to take if they complete said challenge. The Gm, will then reply with the outcome of their strategy as well as a description of the next room. This will keep a steady pace throughout the game that will keep things entertaining for all of us. This pace will only be interrupted by player conversations so that roleplaying can occur, but remember that your character is on a mission for their god and will not likely stop to chat for a week.
Characters: Blessed are you, oh great champion, for it is your destiny to enter the labyrinth and fight for the honor of your patron deity. Your audience in this endeavor, the gods themselves, wish only to know three things of you:
2.Which of them you represent ((can be any god from any myth))
3.Each of you was chosen by your god because you have a special skill that sets you apart from the rest. Briefly describe that skill, as well as how confident you are in it (("as good as I can fight", or "better than anything else", no actual numbers)).
Your fellow Champions may be interested in hearing about your background so they may better know their enemy. If you wish, you may also detail a brief history of yourself.
Before you enter the Labyrinth, you may also pick one weapon to start out with. Choose Wisely.
Once these things have been provided, Stats will be randomly generated based on your god (followers of Athena will be smarter than those of Sekhmet, who will be better at combat), and then your character will be placed within the labyrinth to face his/her first challenge. Post when you're ready, Good Hunting.
