Uta's Making This Up As She Goes

For Faranth's sake, One has gone senile and is running around in pink panties and old-man socks. Someone get clothes on that man!

Yeah, that's right. . . . The Infamous One is here. And we get to play dress up. As this is purely a dice game, let's pray that the dice gods love you, because . . . I have the feeling One is holding a dagger behind his back, and it's got your name on it.

Please note this was sketched in a rush. It may or may not resemble the actual person.

How to Play

1 Sign up with a Wing! There are 4 slots per Wing . . . . For a total of 16 players! Please announce whether you're for Arcturus, Bellicus, Cruentus, or Damascus in your sign up post. Also, please choose whether or not you will be a Player or an Helper!

What's the difference you ask?

A Player actually rolls to stick the pieces of clothing on One. The numbers they roll are where the clothing gets pinned.

A Helper rolls a different set of dice. They can choose which Player in their Wing they wish to aid as well as which piece of clothing they wish to move. The numbers they roll will move the clothing both vertically and horizontally, depending on the number rolled.

The advantage to this is not only do they help rack up points, but yes, they are allowed to pick what piece of clothing they move AFTER they roll.

They must announce who they are helping first, and hope for the best, but they can edit what piece of clothing they hope to move from that player after they consider the roll.

Teamwork, man.

If a Helper does not wish to play during a round, they do not have to roll and can pass by stating as such.

Every Player will be playing as if they have their own empty board. (Lucky you -- a naked One to admire all by yourself.)

2. When Uta starts a round, she will choose the piece of clothing and post current 'results', to show who has racked up what amount of points, and where One's handy clothing is resting.


With each round, Players will roll TWO eight-sided dice.

The first dice represents the vertical number.

The second dice represents the horizontal number.

Notice that the horizontal row does NOT go up to 7 or 8. 7 is considered a duplicate 1. 8 is considered a duplicate 6.

The piece of clothing will move/land on a square using the red star (no pun intended) as its guide.


Helpers can post anytime once a round begins, though it is usually beneficial to wait until at least one Player in your Wing has posted. That way you might have something to actually move.

Decide whether or not you're going to Pass or play. If you Pass, please post in the thread as such. If you decide to try to help, please do the following.

Helpers will roll TWO 4-sided dice, as well as announce WHO in their wing they are helping. This cannot be edited. The dice represent the BIG numbers on the board. So if a Helper rolls 1,1, that piece of clothing will move They will then declare (by editing in their post) what piece of item they wish to move up two squares.

Once they roll their dice and pick the Player they are aiding, they can then edit in what piece of clothing to move.

3. Uta will announce a stop after 12 hours (or more depending on her schedule.

She will tally points, post Players Current Results, and continue on.


Yeah, that's right. Players points are tallied depending on where a piece of clothing stops.

Pink is worth 0 points.
Aqua is worth 1 point.
Green is worth 2 points.
Purple Squares are worth 3 points. Oh yeeeeah baby.

Points are divided per player/post. So say Player A puts a piece of clothing on 6,2. That's a teal square so Player A gets 1 point.

Then Helper B rolls a 2,1 for that item and that Player. That moves the item to 7,3 which is a green square. So that Player gets an additional 2 points.

Matching a Piece of Clothing

So what happens if you get lucky and roll a piece of clothing where it should go on One? Or a Helper aids your cause?

If you get a match on where the clothing is supposed to go, you get 5 points! This is why teamwork is so important. And precision.

4. After all the piece of clothing are on the board, Uta will tally up points. The winners will be the Wing whose totals have the most amount of points!

There may be a prize or two for most 'unique' looking One at the end. . . but that's not guaranteed.

1. Wasn't this supposed to be a wing contest? Wtf Uta. . . . It was going to be, but . . . We already did Faux-Thread which was precision-ish. And Archery. And with all-the-dramaz going down with Stamina Shipnapping, I figured we could use an OOC game to break up the drama. We'll simply assume that whatever Wing wins this game, won the precision contest. And leave the RP and plot up to you guys, if it needs a mention at all.

Or if Shipnapping Staming really DOES result in an end of the Games, then this is purely for OOC humor and good times.

Come on, it's a mostly naked One. Can you blame me?

2. Where are the prizes, Uta!? What, a naked One isn't prize enough!? OK, so . . . we're working on them. Celeanor is working on them as we speak. What are they? Probably fire-lizards, but honestly I have no idea. I promise to add them as soon as we get 'em!

3. Uta, these rules don't make sense. EXPLAIN YOURSELF! It is late and I am le tired? If something doesn't make sense, feel free to ask. I'll try to re-word or give better examples. Honestly though, just think of this as a more advanced and beautiful form of Pin-the-tail-on-the-Donkey. Except we're using One (and he is an a**) so . . . I mean.


I didn't say that out loud.

4. Where are the clothes!? If we're putting him on clothes, why do I not see them!? I will show each piece of clothing every round. Until then it's a surprise.

5. What about Christmas Eve and Christmas!? I won't be around to play! Well. I probably will be a bit spontatneous myself next week. We will break for Christmas Even and Christmas Day, and pick up again after. So there's no rush. I also wlil be pretty lenient time-wise, since I'll be visiting family myself. . . . slow game will be slightly slow. It should be six rounds total after sign-ups.
