Ninja Warlock
« on: May 31, 2008, 01:54:47 am »
Well here's how it is. Last night i had this pretty cool waking dream. It was about a ninja warlock who was infiltrating an orcish community centre to rescue some cute little animals. So this guy was really stealthy and he could use magic to boot. He was climbing on walls and ceilings like spider-man (i assume by application of magic) an had to sneak past and entire hall full of orcs attending a motivational speech or something.

Anyways, the idea was so awesome that i think i might actually make a meta game of it.

So, here's the Ninja Warlock the intended rescue-ee and Gu-Ragh Community Centre.



So here's the deal. The orcs have kidnapped and imprisoned the Ninja Warlock's ally, the hamster looking thing. They're keeping it somewhere inside the Gu-Ragh Community Centre. Since the Ninja Warlock's magic is fueled by being nice to cute little animals, he is obligated to rescue the friendly critter. So he is going to infiltrate the community centre, sneak past the orcs inside, find the critter, sneak back out with critter and then we're home free. If only it would be that simple.

The Ninja Warlock is a master of stealth and is trained in the deadly arts. He wields a small katana and has some darts and stuff on him too. He also has access to magic and can use it for all sorts of things. The Ninja Warlock uses a combination of ninja skills and magic to stick to walls and ceilings and has pretty much unlimited use of this ability.

Some rules:

  • The point of this game is to be stealthy, so no gratuitous killing.
  • Magic works by telling me what you want to do with it. It has to be something that would have a simple one word name, like 'illusion' or 'silence'.
  • Feel free to ask me about stuff that isn't depicted in the illustrations or an explanation of what stuff in the pictures are.
  • The pictures will not be colored.
  • Updates will be sporadic at best.


So lets get started.



The Ninja Warlock has just reached the Gu-Ragh Community Centre. He is at the end of the parking lot furthest from those carts parked near the centre. Something big must be happening because there are a lot of carts parked at the other end of the lot. As you can see the lot is bounded by a curb and some pretty dead bushes. They should really fire their grounds keeper. The Ninja Warlock has to find a way into the building without alerting any orcs. There are probably some guards patrolling the place and other orcs just visiting the community centre and using the facilities. There may be creatures other than orcs in the place too.

So, what is our course of action?

Cartwheel over to that funny looking box! Then, look at what's inside!

This should be fun.  ;D

Update!



The Ninja Warlock moves behind the very dead bushes and speedily cartwheels over to the box, which happens to be a dumpster. With some furtive glances around to check if he has been spotted, the Ninja Warlock lifts the lid of the dumpster to look inside...



And gets a face full of gremlin. The Ninja Warlock is not amused. He pulls the irascible creature off of his face and chucks it back into the dumpster slamming the lid after it. Yeah, don't peek inside dumpsters. Luckily no one was around to see this humiliating display. Without losing his composure, the Ninja Warlock decides to try the window near the side entrance and see whether he can enter there.



A couple flips and a wallcrawl later, the Warlock Ninja is on the wall over the window. Unfortunately this is the kind of window that doesn't open, but there are some posters attached on the inside and the Ninja Warlock gets a chance to look inside the building. The window is directly over a table with two chairs which are fortunately unoccupied. The room the window looks into appears to be a cafeteria or cafe of some sort, it is completely deserted though. The posters look like they're detailing events happening at the community centre but the writing is all in orcish, which is a language the Ninja Warlock has never had the (dis)pleasure of learning.

The Ninja Warlock hears footsteps coming.

What now?

Make 1000 years of pain to whoever comes near, because it's random.

Use your magic skillz to make yourself look like a simple Orcish painter. Who is painting. The wall.

Wait for the person who is passing to leave, then follow them.

Um, how would you react if you found someone randomly painting a public building which pretty obviously isn't official since theres no other painters, scaffolding, etc.?

Meh, but if you say so. Will wait for more ideas though.

Use copy on the orc, knock him out and hide him in a locker/closet.

Update!



The Ninja Warlock quickly and silently jumps up onto the roof over the entrance. He hears the footsteps get closer and eventually he sees a goblin carrying a rake step out. Must be the gardener. Goblins are often used by orcs for menial labor.

The Ninja Warlock looks up and notices an open window above his position.



Before the Ninja Warlock can make a move towards the window, a smokebomb explodes next to the dumpster. The goblin also sees the explosion and walks towards it to investigate. No wonder all the plants are dead...



As the smoke settles down and the goblin reaches the dumpster, a pair of gloved hands shoot out and break the goblin's neck. The body is then dragged behind the dumpster and the Ninja Warlock can hear someone fumbling with the rake.



Then some guy in a ridiculous costume steps out from behind the dumpster. He must use some pretty awesome hair gel too. Is that a cape? The Ninja Warlock hates wannabes. The wannabe isn't aware of his surroundings and just walks towards the doors without noticing the Ninja Warlock.

The Ninja Warlock hears the doors open, and so does the wannabe. The wannabe does some completely unnecessary hand motions and mumbles something and casts an illusion on himself to look like a bald orc with a paintbrush and paint bucket. He then proceeds to paint the wall blue. The Ninja Warlock hears an angry exclamation in orcish from underneath his hiding spot and a throwing axe flies out and embeds itself in the "painter orc's" head. The wannabe's illusion disappears with his death, revealing his true form. The Ninja Warlock hears orcish swearing and the orc producing it comes out, retrieves his axe and dumps the body in the dumpster. The discovery of the dead goblin behind the dumpster produces more swearing and it too goes into the dumpster. After this, the orc examines the vandalism of the wall and swears some more. Then he goes back inside.

What now?

(Yes. I just did that.  ;))

Well, that was random. o_O


Use copy to copy the look of the swearing orc then go inside. When you see him, knock him out and hide him in a locker/closet.

Cool update Neoskel  :D.

Ok sorry for the last post (I was high on sugar), i'll take it seriously from now on (with moderation).

Just be carefull when entering that window and try to turn off the lights with some magic. Assuming orcs don't have nigh vision. If that's the case, make more light.
