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
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.
The venue has been reserved for... hroom-hrum, to set a deadline would be too hasty now, would it not? Known as "Derndingle Clearing," it is commonly known as the area where Entmoots occur. Little do most of the public know, however, this is also where plays, monologues, professional wrestling bouts, musicals, operas, plots to bring back the Entwives, and illegal gambling occurs (the payout on which tree would lose all their leaves in Middle-Earth is quite lucrative you know!). Hence why, "Derndingle Clearing" has always been a clearing, rather than a new forest. On this occasion, giant, long, bench-shaped stones have been placed around the clearing for audience members to sit or stand on. There are multiple gaps allowing for actors, actresses, creatures, and other props to enter and exit the "grassy stage" whenever they wish. The stage indeed is made out of a different colored grass to mark where people turn In-Character and act. The stage is certainly not made out of wood, for that violates multiple policies within the Huorn Acting Guild.

Within the forests surrounding the clearing is the backstage area. Multiple huorns, animals, and plants of all species, sizes, and whatever else, are responsible for the costumes and makeup. Kistrel the Intelligent Spider is also here helping out. Because of her intelligence, Kistrel has made an alliance with the huorns in Fangorn in eliminating pesky Invasive Bugs and other Invasive Creatures. If you attack Kistrel, expect the entire forest to start clubbing you everywhere.
Also within the backstage forest lies Fingsanya, who is currently sprawled on a stone bed sleeping. Containers of blue dye surround her. While she is asleep, Shrubstache the Angry Huorn is in charge.
Actors: Welcome! You have either been willing or unwillingly recruited to play in this stage production. When you're not acting, you can be anywhere you want, just not on the different grass of the Derndingle Clearing. Feel free to RP 'backstage' in the forest, get to know your fellow actors, interact with the animals/plants/trees/huorns, etc. All actors, creatures, props, and everybody else who wish to report in, please look for the sentient giant shrubbery and report in. When you are ready to get dressed/put on prosthetics/make-up/etc., please approach Kistrel (Kirstel) the Spider and the helper huorns/animals/plants. Feel free to godmode their actions, but please don't kill Kistrel, you don't want to have the entire forest turn on you, after all? The goblins? Oh and kill some of those invasive bugs hiding around while you're at it.
Audience: The seats are free. Please have a seat, and do not do anything that will upset Fangorn Forest.
