Love how I point out the obvious. Overgrown path (same one as twist) with the pocket knife that has a 25% chance of landing a tetanus hit!

*yawn* studying is boring. Lets see what's on Psypoke at the library. Oh it's starting.

The card is familiar. Was going to get the bow because I can actually use one well in real life. The rope, unless used as a weapon has no real purpose (I think). The leather belt.... Hmmm. Canteen.... This should go with the bread. At least a group has food and water with it. The ball. Either pokéball or something else. The hat? Obviously a Yankees hat. But what are the Yankees doing in this world? Maybe code?

I choose the card. I think I know what its used for.

Quote:

Now, the location. Three different paths. We don't know the weather, but for me it seems humid. Weeds, swamp, windflowers, thorns. No variety. The paths must be close together. I think we may be rejoining later.


The windflowers. In my experience, games and movies will have some kind of monster. My guess, it lies here. Wouldn't be surprised if a giant Venus Fly Trap lives here.

The thorns. Most concealing. Can't go off path. Seems like a one way road. Hmm...

The swamp. This seems the most promising. Maybe a few crocs or alligators. Moss. Here is where it looks promising. Moss. Moss ALWAYS (if my knowledge of SpongeBob and scouts is correct) grows facing north.
A sense of direction helps. It shows where we came from where we are from the place we were. We will be able to make a map.

That is why, although my item will be used for a different purpose most likely, I choose the swamp path so my card (made out of paper) can be a map. Problem, we need something to write with. Dang it. THE ARROWS MIGHT BE THE ONLY THING WE CAN WRITE WITH!!! SANGUINARY. Gosh darn it.



Anyway. Overview:

Swamp: GhostPony with Rope. Me with Card and plan.

Field of Death (flowers and weeds): Sanguinary with bow and arrows

Thorns of Death: Twistedturtwig with Hat. Haunted Water with pocket knife.


EDIT: HAUNTED. WHY..... EVERYONE IS CHOOSING THE THINGS PEOPLE COULD WRITE WITH AND THEN GOING ON A DIFFERENT PATH. Out of the last available items and the rope.

The rope could be made as a quill. So could the metal part the threads through the holes in the belt.

Agreed. I'm glad I'm not the only one going down the third path. And, if my hunch is correct, all of those three "strange" items are very special. Someone might want to take the first one, what I'm assuming to be a Pokeball, which could be very useful as well if a group runs into a monster of some sort.

For what it's worth I have an EXTREMELY strong gut feeling what the card is

I think it is "Black luster soldier" from Yu-Gi-Oh

I chose the rope and the swamp, because if someone get stuck in mud, I'll use the rope.
Sorry, forgot to add my reason above. ;)

Damn, we're a Pokemon forum, right? If there are no Pokemon in this story, then Argo is a n00b. I pick the strange ball and I'll follow the third path. It's hard to walk, but this means huge imaginary beasts can't walk in it as well.

Chill, just a theory, but if you're taking the Pokeball, the first path sounds the best. Tall grass and weeds... possibly a connection? I mean, that is where you find Pokemon, after all.

Too late, all choices are final. No second chances. *cue thunder and lighting*

9/3=3
Meaning, there are three paths and nine players, so 9 players divided by 3 paths means that there will be repeats.

I'm taking the extra leather belt and I'm going down the overgrown path.
Only one thing left.

Bow+Arrows: kill stuff
Knife: kill stuff
Belt: ?
Rope: ?
Canteen: might get the chance to fill it up at a river. Maybe offer some to a NPC in return for something?
Bread: same thing about the NPC.
Pokéball: what I would have chosen
Card: Black Luster Soldier (/envoy of the beginning). Maybe trade it to a collector?
Cap: Maybe we'll run into some Yankees fans from the future who will help us?

Looks like I'm stuck with the bread... or am I?
I take Argo's bag (and jacket if he had one) and the bread.
Thinking outside the box ftw!

oh, and I take path 3.

Okay, so this is the three paths, and who went where, with which item:

Grassy Path wrote:
SanguinaryScientist - Bow and arrows

Sanguinary, it looks like you'll be on your own. You've got the bow and arrows though, so you can use them to fight off an enemy, or hunt for food, both of which are very good uses. You might even be able to find some more arrows along the way, or make them yourself.

Marshy Path wrote:
James - Mysterious card
GhostPony - Rope

GP could use the rope as a snare to catch food, or to save one of the two of you from falling. James, since the card is probably that Yugioh card, I wouldn't write on it, and instead save it for if you're attacked by someone or something so that you can summon the soldier guy to help.

Overgrown Path wrote:
twist - NY baseball cap
Haunted Water - Rusty knife
Dare - Canteen
ChillBill - Pokéball
Eeveelution-Master - Belt
DragoBoy - Bread (and possibly bag)

As for my group, we've certainly got the advantage of size, and the most items. We've got a small weapon in the knife (with the 25% tetanus chance, of course), a bit of food, and a reusable water container in the canteen. The belt could be used for... something, I'm sure. Maybe to hold something together at one point, or trade to someone. The Pokéball, we could use to capture a monster if we find one, and maybe make it fight for us. And, if my hunch is correct, we might see (or not see!) that the hat of mine might prove to be more useful then we might have first imagined...

(EDIT: forgot to add Chill to the list)

@ everyone: Wow. I never knew I'd get such fast responses. I'll post the next part as soon as I get the chance! Next few days, maybe tonight or tomorrow.

@ Drago: I was waiting for someone to try this. Congratulations, you figured out that this game is slightly more realistic than it seems. You get the bag, the bread, and the jacket, which yes, Argo was wearing. Course, it has a hole in it from being shot and killed and all... But you still got in.

@ TT: Thanks for the list. Now I don't have to do one myself.

Part two coming soon!

Nobody's home

All by myself
Don't wanna be, all by myself anymore

Hard to be sure
Sometimes I feel so insecure
And love so distant and obscure
Remains the cure

Lets see....

Drago you sly smart ass...

GP, looks like we're alone... In a swamp. Make a swamp monster to protect us?


To teh owner of the pokéball... There was one in the last game and was never used...

Y U NO COME WITH US TO THE SWAMP?!?!?! Y U ALL GO TO THORN MAZE?!?!?!


Also, I think the thorn thing might be a maze. Have fun...

So, at least one of us is dead as -

- one choice: death

- one choice: continuing

- one choice: getting something good


Sanguinary, good luck. You will need it against the Piranha Flower.

James, I have confirmation from Argo that for the first couple of rounds at least, you won't be able to die. It would be kind of stupid if someone died on the very first round. So about 2 or 3 rounds in, that's when the chance to die will start.

How to survive in a swamp:

1. Scream at the others for not coming to the luxurious mud pond resort.

2. Almost die because you're a massive klutz and fell into the swamp.

3. Have GP waste his rope saving you.

4. Almost die again because of alligators.

5. Waste your Yu-Gi-Oh trading card.

6. Cross paths with the thorn maze group.

7. Make sure your lister guy is alive.

8. Slaughter the group until your Luster knight is hungry with power.

9. Provoke the Luster Knight.

10. Die a horrible painful death. :D
