used for the first roll,
if the qualifying roll for a section is not met a
/Roll 10 dice is used for a
only one save per section allowed.
Roll of die is done after the approach to a section and before text entry of action/words so you know what is
the outcome and can roleplay it accordingly. Be creative. A section must be completed successfully to gain points.
This will not be easy but the prizes will be worth it if you do.
One person at a time to go the
ONE TRY an event.
Note: It is possible that no one will complete all the sections so prizes will carry over to the next run of the Gauntlet. It is not actually easy to make it all the way through, then again, more than one could too.
If during the time allotted for the event cannot cover all those who signed up, time will be scheduled for each until all have had their chance. A roll of the die: /roll (100) will determine who goes first and so forth of those signed up. Signing up will start when the event starts without taking on any others after this date. So you can be later than the start of the event to still sign up - giving such time for those who cannot make the event at its start but can later if it is still going on.
First Section: 5+ DIE ROLL to manage the Shifting Platform. Planks move up and down, dipping forward, backwards and side to side. While you are concentrated on the moving floor watch out for the swinging padded arm willing to knock you off into the piles of hay if the uneven floor doesn't send you there first. SAVE needs a 4+ DIE ROLL to be successful in avoiding being sent off the side.
Second Section: 7+ DIE ROLL to manage the Ejection Traps. Sections of floorboards can give way at any time, shooting up into the air a good six feet on giant springs. To add to the difficulty, pebbles and acorns shower down, making the foot hold more precarious still. Will you slip and fall, be ejected in the next step or manage to hold on keeping your footing to the next section. If ejected you'll most likely land in a thick, deep piles of stinky kelp. SAVE needs a 5+ DIE ROLL to be successful in hanging in there.
Third Section: 9+ DIE ROLL to manage the Bumper Spindles with large padded bumpers. You will need to dart, duck and turn quickly to avoid the arms with the large bumpers of two spindles at one point overlapping. If you get hit, you'll get launched onto deep piles of wet feathers along the sides unless you can hold onto the spindle's arm taking you to the other side. SAVE needs a 6+ DIE ROLL to be successful in holding on.
Fourth Section: 12+ DIE ROLL to manage the Large Balls. Oversized balls made of steel as they swing around at random, no pattern. On top of that, some of the floor slats are not fastened down in a way, you step on it just right it can flip up behind or in front of you. Can you managed not being whacked and thrown off the side? Sides are full of wet black sticky wool, baa baa black sheep. SAVE needs a 7+ DIE ROLL to be successful in managing to stay grounded if hit and make it to the next section.
Fifth Section: 15+ DIE ROLL to manage the Floor Spikes. Poles with blunt ends will shoot up randomly through the floor. Notice those holes? Don't get your foot caught let along your chin hit in a punch knocking you off the platform and into troughs of swamp water to soften your fall. What was that thing that just slithered by? SAVE needs a 8+ DIE ROLL to be successful in keeping from getting knocked off.
Final Section: 18+ DIE ROLL to manage the Pendulum Blades. You are lastly greeted with the sound of rhythmic swishing of very large blades hung on pendulums. There are eight in total and all timed differently, some swinging from left to right and some swinging from right to left. The timing between is crucial to coordinate. Your timing and protective gear worn, the only padding between being sliced in half or impaled otherwise. Trenches of mud await you otherwise if you fall. SAVE needs a 9+ DIE ROLL to be successful. If successful, you only get nicked, perhaps a slice taken from the padding worn as you step out onto the finish platform with steps leading down.
