Ludo was bored. None of his usual games held any enticement. Even his favorite players had just lost their shine. Sure, as a ancient being of immense cosmic power, he had such slumps before. But the 'others' had after the first such slump forbidden him to make anyone participate against their will. They did not have to know the rules, agree upon them, or even play fair and without cheating. But they had to agree to playing a game.
And that was exactly what he would do and even using his favorite species of player. Humans. They just had that kind of spirit and intellect that would make such a game very fun. And they were stupid and backward enough to agree to things without knowing exactly what they would agree on. With only a little application of his power, he set everything in motion. An advertisement on every mayor website.
Island Paradise, The Game of a Lifetime. Click here to play. And then a picture of a beautiful tropical island, with handsome men and women in the background, as well as a big red button that said: PLAY.
And then all he had to do was wait. And for an immortal he had to wait only for a very short time before some hapless mortal would click that button.
Upon clicking the button, the player is instantly transported to the island, where, on the ground around their arrival is a perfect circular ring of blank squares, as well as a most excellent miniature of themselves. So detailed it is uncanny. As well as others. Each placed on different squares. On the floor, in the center of the ring there is a message engraved in a language that seems to just seep into you mind, making it perfectly clear whatever language it is you speak. There was also a pedestal with upon it a dice bowl holding two ivory white six sided dice.
"Welcome to the Island. You are playing a game of Do Unto Others. Once per day, you have to roll the dice and answer a question from the card that appears. Preventing someone from rolling or answering the card makes you immediately forfeit the game. At any time you can forfeit the game willingly. The winner is the last player on the island."
Actual game information without too much of a spoiler.
The cards and the dice rolls determine those affected by the cards. The answer to the questions on the cards becomes true. This can and will have effects that alter the characters in some way. Mentally or physically (and in game universe terms ... 'permanently'). So for a change you will not have to take in account the sensibilities of people's Ons and Offs. 'After the change' has happened, you can at any time quit the game in character. It is after all the goal stated to declare a winner. There is also no rulebook present. beyond what is stated at the center, but I warn the players that there ARE rules. Some may even make common sense.
Each game day, will be one week in real time. Giving everybody ample time to socialize or explore, or enjoy the results of the magic.
That is all, hope there is a lot of interest.
