Dream Fighter

(Thanks to Joyous Theta for help with the idea!)



"Do you understand the conditions of this experiment?"

Dr. Zahner finished explaining to the group. It was a test of a person's abilities during lucid dreaming - a simple concept that had much to reveal. In a first, Dr. Zahner's work would unite multiple people into a single shared dream - something unheard of, until now.

"If you are ready to proceed, please step into your rooms and lie down. The experiment will begin shortly."


Game
The nature of the game makes it hard to explain up front without spoiling things. As new mechanics come up, they will be explained in green text. To demonstrate, I'll explain a mechanic now.

The game, like many others, will be conducted with a d20 to determine roll successes and failures. Buffs and debuffs will be applied based on a character's current status. For example, a roll may look like this:

Alice: 11 + 2 (Ring of Power) - 3 (dazed) = 10

The base roll, or the number rolled by the die, is 11. The Ring of Power gives an extra 2 points to this roll, but Alice being dazed takes 3 points away, making the final roll 10.

I'll start when we get around 4-5 players, but that's not a limit.

I'm gonna say no to shapeshifting right off the bat, while I don't mind maybe working it in as a power later on, I think immediate shapeshifting is gonna be a little overpowered to start with.

Both sign-ups look fine. I'm cool with self-inserts as long as it fits with the story (and for a realistic self-insert, I don't see why it wouldn't).

Accepted as Merlijn, but if you'd prefer to switch to Betty before the game starts that's OK too.

ugggh such a dilemma. Kinda depends on how wacky the rp is gonna be. If it's kinda serious or extremely wacky i prefer the self insert, if its mildly wacky I prefer Betty.

While I am going to lean into the dreams aspect for some more unrealistic stuff, I'm going to be running it as a serious game, so I think based on that the self-insert would fit what you're looking for.

Well then her appearance is a self insert from Words of Power, for the time being. Can't be bothered to write up seperate looks.

This one, right? Assuming you're talking about just the appearance part of the sign-up sheet, then you're good to go.




I'm going to start in a day or two if there's no more signups, but I'll keep signups open for a little bit after starting in case anyone misses it.

Re: Dream Fighter

While this is the first turn, I'm still accepting sign-ups, so feel free to fill out an application and I'll write you in.

After lying down, everyone in the party can feel slightly dizzy as everything fades to black.

Chapter 1: Good Night

--------

Once they wake up again, the world looks strange, almost as if you can't quite focus on any one detail. Slowly but surely though, the world begins to come into focus, and the party can see they are in a large room.

"Hello? Hello, can you hear me?" a voice calls out from nowhere. "This is Dr. Zahner. I hope you can all hear me... from what I'm reading on my end, you should be completely conscious within the dream now."

As Dr. Zahner continues to speak, more of the room comes into detail - the previously blank walls suddenly gain texture, the motionless floor becomes the tile floor they were standing on before they lied down, and the lights from above suddenly gain form as they become lamps, tucked away between the ceiling tiles above.

"You're probably a little confused. Time is hard to pin down in a dream, but you've only really been asleep for... six minutes and thirty-one seconds. It took a little longer than I was expecting, but everything seems to have gone well. We can officially begin the dream portion of the experiment. Take a look at that cabinet over there."

A cabinet, made from metal, rests against the wall next to the party.

"In that cabinet, there should be some supplies to help with the test. There's a few things you can do, of course. You could test the limits of your shared dream, or try messing around with those supplies. There's a little training grounds outside if you want to practice. I don't have too much of an insight into what exactly you're doing, but I can hear you... er, for the most part. So if you have any questions, now would be a good time to ask, before we get started. I'm not sure what will happen to communication between us later in the experiment, but just know I'm monitoring you from the outside."

"Take this time to get acquainted with your surroundings and how the dream works. I'd recommend not thinking about it too hard. There are a few things I'd like to try, to see how they work in a shared dream... but it's a very bad idea to start that if all of you are completely confused."

As the rest of the room finally faded into view, Dr. Zahner stopped speaking.

The room was relatively large, and there was a door to the outside - likely the training grounds Dr. Zahner mentioned. The cabinet sat next to a table, which had four chairs seated around it. Behind them was some sort of poster, although it wasn't very clear what it said - if it said anything at all. There also seemed to be a light switch next to the door, presumably for the overhead lighting.

Grayden takes a look at the supplies.

The drawer looks pretty normal. Inside the drawer are a pickaxe, some pencils and paper, a box of replacement guitar strings, a few paperclips, and some pairs of socks.

Upon first glance, the only thing resembling a weapon seems to be the pickaxe Grayden found. However, after checking a little more, [REDACTED] manages to find a small dagger in a hidden compartment.

Jason manages to fly, getting a better view of the building from above.

The roof seems to be non-existent - or at least, Jason doesn't hit it. Jason can see the training grounds next to the room they're in, along with some sort of storage room nearby. It's a little hard to make out from this height, but there are definitely a number of extra rooms outside the one they're in.

Grayden takes everything he finds in the drawer, and, uh, flies as well?
If he succeeds, he draws a floor plan.

Re: Dream Fighter

"So we're all just gonna ignore each other then. That's... ugh" I sigh as I roll my eyes. I look up as I talk a bit louder "So is there anything we should be doing or are you just gonna creep on us for no reason". I sound a bit annoyed.

Re: Dream Fighter

Jason attempts to manifest a device that puts people into mutual dreams. It's based on that one movie about shared dreams.
