__________________________

Previously on The Hobbit Insanity, Orco del Oro, along with his helper, Mordor Troll, decided to direct a reenactment of The Quest for Erebor. Some highlights in that RPG (viewtopic.php?f=14&t=145 ) include the death of the person who was supposed to play Tauriel, Dain earning the title of 'Oakenshield', an impromptu actor's union strike, the incapacitation of the director, Orco del Oro, and the complete collapse of the stage at the end of the curtain call. Those were just some of the highlights, so please feel free to revisit that thread.

Anyways, a new director has been appointed, and a new location has been setup in Derndingle over in Fangorn Forest. Derndingle was the clearing where they had the Entmoot you see, and it is one of the few clearings in Fangorn Forest where one could setup a theatre without getting grabbed by Huorns. The new director is Fingsanya, an affable being with dyed light-blue hair. She wants all the actors to have fun and enjoy themselves ^_^. Her co-director represents the Fangorn Huorn Contingent, Shrubstache the Angry Huorn. This huorn was once a shrubbery but has now become more entish and gained sentience. Shrubstache the Angry Huorn will ensure that all actors obey the many rules of Fangorn that have been etched along the Misty Mountains for all travelers to see, for there are many rules and Fangorn specifically discourages the use of paper.

Fingsanya trusts that the casted members, based on the prompt, can improvise the script. Shrubstache the Angry Huorn does not trust any of you, however, and has stone tablets with cues etched on them. Anyone who is brave enough to enter Fangorn Forest may see this theatrical performance. To compensate for their time and the danger of traveling through Fangorn Forest, they are given food, like fallen leaves; refreshments, including ent draughts; and Bruised Fruit. Boxes of Bruised Fruit are next to all audience members' seats. After all, ents only eat fruit that naturally falls off of trees and they expect you to do so as well.

_________________________

FANGORN PROMPT SPECIALTY


During each prompt, all applicable actors will be assigned a different word they have to use a certain amount of times in their post. You will be penalized if you do not use the word/use it the incorrect amount of times.



FANGORN ROTTEN TOMATO MINI-GAME



All actors are 'voluntary' participants of the Fangorn Rotten Tomato Mini-Game. The game will occur immediately following the end deadline for a prompt (a prompt lasts for 48-72 hours, depending on said prompt). In this game, Shrubstache and any interested audience members can throw 1 item of whatever they wish at any actor they wish to target. Idle actors make great targets after all :). It will be recorded each time somebody is hit by fruit on the "Board of Rotten Tomatoes". This board shall be edited in the OP of the OOC thread and updated accordingly


MINI-GAME RULES

1. All actors automatically enter the mini-game.
2. The mini-game will occur immediately after the end of a prompt and before the beginning of a new prompt
3. Audience members have 48 hours to choose 1 item to throw at one actor
4. Following the 48 hours, Actors have 24 hours to respond.
5a. A 6-sided die roll shall be cast. If actor does not respond, a result of 1 will result in a dodge, 2-6 will result in a hit.
5b. If an actor responds with a post I like (funny, serious, seriously funny, etc.), I will increase the dodge rate accordingly up to a die roll of 5 (1-5) resulting in a dodge.
6. Each time a person is hit, it shall be recorded on "The Board of Rotten Tomatoes"
7. If you get hit, 1 point will be deducted from your score on the board (e.g 0 becomes -1). Dodging will earn you one point, however (e.g 0 becomes 1)
8. There are hidden achievements in this game, and if you meet these arbitrary achievements, you will earn points in this RPG
9. Those who end with a score of at least a 0 or higher may automatically reprise their role for the next section of the RPG (the next casting call). Those in the negatives will have to manually sign-up again.

OOOH YAY! Insanity is back! Are the rabbits in this part yet? If so, I'd love to play a rabbit and can I please have Balin again?

I'm unsure of who I'll be using as my actor in this thread, but Zarâm is the most likely one to get involved in something like this.

@Dimcairien Luiniel ...I reread the script and indeed they are in this part! You get to play as a rabbit and you also have Balin!

@Lirimaer Yes, go ahead! Gandalf was not in the last RPG. The last time he appeared in the Hobbit Insanity was back in the Old Plaza a few years ago, where I had a St. Bernard's dog replacement actor play as him.

I read that as Kill me please. Which I thought was a bit extreme.

I would like to play as many trolls as other people do not claim, and I prioritize Bert, William, and Tom for myself in that order, if that makes sense.

Also, if nobody else claims Radagast I might as well play him too I am a wizard after all frig

@KingODuckingham Radagast is yours, and I have reserved you Bert. If no one claims William or Tom you get to play those parts too :D

Okay, the First prompt is up! After a week, then the audience shall respond accordingly.

Oh by the way, in terms of the assignment of words, you don't HAVE to use them. Just know that you'll get a penalty if you don't, probably in terms of lowering the success of saving throws in the rotten tomato mini-game.

But if you do use them... Heh, you might get some benefits.
