Almost Home~~A Story Game

Discussion in 'Games, Jokes, and Fun!' started by earlybird10842, Jan 31, 2014.

  1. You are a lost dog, cat, goat, or rabbit--you once lived with humans but they took you here and left you. And now you have a choice--join up with the herd of your animal, go with a band of travelers of your species who want to find a new home with humans, or live and try to survive by yourself.

    This is not a roleplay, you don't have to create a character, can use any character at any time--even if it isn't yours, and don't really have to commit to the game like you do an RP--you can make one or two posts, then leave. But please PM me or @BettyBlueSilkie , and the charechter creator before doing anything drastic--injuring or killing another chicken, going broody and hatching eggs, ect.

    *chicken herd
    *dog herd
    *goat herd
    *Rabbit herd
    (these herds can be named and new herds for each species can be created. Ranks can be made for the herds. Organized bands of travelers can also be created.)

    MAP (Sorry it is so small!)


    -only 3 characters created (at most)
    -no harsh language
    -follows BYC rules
    -must be realistic--although animals can talk to each other, no magic, ect. This is not fantasy.
    -This is not a roleplay, in the sense that you can use other people's characters. With that said, please ask before doing anything big, and if a character's personality/history is set, think about those factors when you play with that characters, so an ultra-shy bunny isn't talking a chicken's ear off.





    -Are they in a herd, loner, or trying to get back to humans?:

  2. Lillia stood where the humans had left her. (This is the star on the map, most or all of the animals had been left in this spot.) to the south, she could see grass, at least three acres, and then a lake. Then, to the north were mountains. To the west there was forest. And to the east was the dusty winding road leading back toward where Lillia had came from. The sun, with its weak springtime glow, failed to warm her from the wind pouring across the land. It ruffled her feathers and chilled her in some place beyond her bones. Some place which had stayed warm until the humans--had left her. Why? Lillia didn't know. She didn't know what to do, where to go. The spring breeze seemed to freeze her, and so she did not forage, did not walk toward the forest, whose aromatic pines called her, nor did she try to walk down the road, to try to go back to the humans. She did not go through the meadows to find food and water. She just stood. Waiting. For nothing.

    Meanwhile, Tina was freaked out because a big storm was coming, she could feel it in her bones! Her owners have moved the day before and forgot about her, leaving her trapped in her coop alone. suddenly a big bolt of lightning hits the ground with a BOOM and crack! Tina was worried she knew that she had to leave soon or she would be fried chicken! She took a good swig of water and as much food as she could fit in her beak and charged to the door BANG! The door swung open and Tina raced for the woods. Soon she found a tree that fell over and Tina thought to herself " it looks sturdy" and she burrowed in. When Tina had her owners she wished that she saw them more and that she had brothers and sisters to talk to, but she had never felt this alone in her life. thinking that she wouldn't make it through the storm, she fell into a deep, deep sleep and when she woke up the storm was passed. Tina jumped for joy because she was so happy that she was alive! as she looked around she saw that many trees have fallen, and her coop was crushed.
  4. The noise of the distant storm , miles away in the human lands, startled Lillia. "It's coming this way" she thought, panicked, "and I don't have shelter!"
    Panicked, she ran toward the woods.

    *whew* Finally have time to start!

    "Great. Just great." Thought Molly. She looked around at the cage, and the forest she landed in. The cage had been halted from it's fall by a tree. There was a small pond a few feet away, and even further away there was a very steep hill that led to a small clearing. She was on a truck with other goats and chickens, but her cage hadn't been secured down, and she was thrown off when the truck hit a pothole. Now she was trapped. Molly started sniffing the lock trying to see if she could open it. She backed up as far as the cage would allow, then bashed it with her head. She failed to realize that the lock was already broken, and continued running down the hill and into a puddle. After shaking off she stood up to her full 18 inches and acted like nothing ever happened. "I knew that would happen. I was just rinsing off after that awful fall." She strutted down to the hill that eventually led to the clearing.

  8. Lillia heard the sudden splash. She turned and saw not the bear or bobcat she had expected, but a small, plump, brown and white goat. She exhaled, and considered talking to the goat. Was she friendly? If she would try and attack Lillia....But then again--Lillia looked at the approaching storm clouds and hurried to the goat.

    Molly heard a commotion coming from her left. She turned and looked, and saw a small brown and white thing hurtling towards her. "Ahhh! It's a bomber Chyken!!" Molly screeched. She remembered all the stories her siblings told her about the Chykens, and how they would jump on the back of goats, and poop on them, and peck their ears. She started running as fast as her little peg legs would allow, which was about 5mph.

    Umm, earlybird? This roleplay has certainly been quiet.
