Another favorite from the past returns...
Welcome back to Lhûn Boat Racing!!
This is a game very similar to other types of racing you may have participated in, with an added RP challenge and a few twists thrown in. The game will be based on dice rolls, thusly:
A = Move Rolls: If you choose A and roll 1, 3, or 5 you move back 1, 3, or 5 spaces. If you get 2, 4, or 6 then you move that many moves forward.
B = Action Rolls: Choosing B means a 20-sided dice is rolled with a predetermined either forward or backwards move and some action you will need to perform.
Additionally, there are several types of space on the board, as you can see above. If you end on a space that says ‘Shortcut' or ‘Go Back’ you will be automatically skipped to the relevant space.
Before arriving at the ‘Go Either Way’ juncture, you must state in a post which direction you want to go (straight ahead or down), and may do so as far ahead as you like. If you fail to state which way you want to go before reaching the fork in the course, a direction will be selected for you.
Lhûn Bay Crab – Landing on this space means that an unusually large and friendly crab has latched onto your vessel and wants to play! Go back two spaces.
Large Wave – Oh no! If you have landed on this space, your boat has been capsized by a wave out of nowhere. Lose a turn.
Each race will have various RP prompts for all racers, which you must incorporate into your posts! You may be as silly or as serious as you like. To give your movement choice, bold at the bottom of your post which type of Roll you would like and, at some point before you reach it, what direction want to go when you reach ‘Go Either Way’. You will not have a set number of rolls- instead, we will play until the first three racers cross the finish line! If more than one person rolls out at the same time, the player who rolled out by the most spaces will be considered the winner, and so forth.
Each race is open to only seven racers! Once all slots are filled, the race will begin, with updates every ~48 hours. To sign up, simply RP your entrance to the starting line and claim you boat from the colors available below, either by bolding the color at the top of your post, or putting the image in your post!
It's a beautiful sunny day on the Gulf of Lhûn, with midwinter sun sparkling on the water! A chill breeze nips at exposed flesh and racers would be wise to prepare for a cold race. One never knows when the weather might change or the creatures that live in the Gulf might start to wonder what's going on above their heads! A pair of tall buoys have been set up to indicate the starting line and the master of the race, the ancient scarred mariner Davos Seaworth, sits perched atop one of them like a grinning albatross, spyglass in hand, awaiting the arrival of the racers...
Signups will last 5 days or until all slots are filled, whichever comes first.
Depending how fast the first race goes, we may run additional races in the same thread, with signups reopened for new racers to get in!
