Household Held [On Hiatus, art laptop borked]
This will be a game about building a house.

Household Actions:
Days have 6 turns, and Nights have 6 more. Each turn, every roommate under your control may perform any two actions of the following:
  • Move: Move your roommate up to 2 rooms, or locally within a room
  • Renovate: Begin constructing a new room, or change an existing room (reliant on items and materials)
  • Craft: Attempt to create something using specific selected items/materials. You may specify an objective, however if you cannot complete the named objective with your selected materials, you will fail.
  • Research: Learn how to create a specified object (item/material/furniture/room), or learn of a object that can be made with specified materials. The same object can have multiple recipes, and the same set of ingredients can have different results.
  • Improvised Action: Any other action you wish to attempt.
For any action you take, you may cite specific conditions (from the room, your skills, your circumstance, etc.) to aid in your action or change its result, with varying degrees of success. Additionally, negative conditions can hinder your actions at my discretion.

Invader Actions
Invaders have all of the above actions except Renovate and Research. They also receive the unique action Rummage.
  • Rummage: Search for a random item in a room or furniture. You must be in the room to Rummage in it, and likewise must be on a space of a furniture to Rummage it. Furniture have an increased chance of finding items.

Other Rules (Less Vital):
SpoilerShow

Roommate Sign-ups:
Any category may be sacrificed for a copy of another.
Name: What you are called (Ben, Kyto, Raven, Cilidaleus, etc.)
Occupation: What you were before the calling of home ownership (cashier, missionary, librarian, tactical advisor, etc.)
Associated Skill: Your most notable skill from your occupation (fencing, dancing, mimicry, zoology, etc.)
Furniture: A plain furnishing (couch, nightstand, microwave, portrait, etc.)
Item: A simple object to hold, such as a tool or weapon (hammer, flashlight, mug, rope, etc.)
Garbage (up to 5): Trash you could find loose in any pocket (string, penny, wrapper, button, etc.)

Anyone may join the game. After the first update, newcomers will face a slightly different situation become invaders (see "Becoming a Roommate"), but will still use the above to join.

Invaders have no access to the actions Research or Renovate, but instead have Rummage.
  • Rummage: Search for a random item in a room or furniture. You must be in the room to Rummage in it, and likewise must be on a space of a furniture to Rummage it. Furniture have an increased chance of finding items.

To become a roommate, a player must start any Day or Night on the space of a couch or bed. There cannot be more roommates than discrete rooms. If there are no roommates, all other players immediately become roommates. In the event that there would be more roommates then rooms, the new roommates are randomly selected, with higher weighting based on the room they are in.

He was created for the army before he was retired for becoming too old or not enough wars. Those teeth are mementos for all the men he punched while fixing up tanks.

Day 1 - Turn 4 - Midday

[Image: n0XqZ2o.png]

Billy cuts deep into the moop with The DualSaw, sensing nothing but greed from its figure. Critical physical damage! Slain, it disappears into a pile of dust, which Billy instinctively loots.

Iros attempts to hit the Generic Room in the name, but fails to deal any abstract damage with a stick.

Steve rummages in The Couch twice, finding a coaster and a kleenex.

Klive goes to sleep on the floor of a generic room. Klive is more vulnerable in this state, but may receive minor benefits upon waking up.
