Genie RPG

Postby Millumi » Mon May 14, 2012 2:40 pm UTC

This game is kind of like corrupt/misquote a wish in RPG form.
So, in this game you can choose to post 3 ways
If you put italic text on, you can be the narrator, and move the story in whatever direction you want. For example, you can make a person lose the lamp in between wishes, and have it go to someone else. You can create any setting you want, hell, if you don't like what is happening, you can just put "...and then they woke up."
You can be the genie, when you make a post as the genie, put your message in bold. The genie can grant, corrupt, and mishear wishes. If you mishear it, say what the genie thought he heard.

And finally, you can be a normal person. You can make wishes or try and get back the lamp when you lose it.
Anybody can play as any character.

Now to start the game:
In the deserts of ancient Egypt, a small excavation team digs up a dirty old lamp, one of them decides to send it back to their family at home, but before reaching it's destination, the box is opened by Joe Smith the mailman, who accidentally rubs the lamp, summoning the genie.

Hear me, Mortal! I have been summoned to grant your wishes - but choose your words carefully, for wishes do often have unintended consequenses.

Foolish Joe Smith could have wished any one of many wonderful wishes. Instead, he arbitrarily chose the one thing that would certainly result in his doom. For, though the knowledge is now lost to the pitiful mortals that wander this planet, female Genies are among the most treacherous, most deceitful, and most evil of all the ancient Djinn. Until this very day, they had been locked away deep under the crust of the earth. Truly, Joe Smith the Mailman has consigned himself, along with all his fellow humans, to a horrible fate.

Very well, if that is your wish. You are now infused with the pure essence of Awesomeness. Your every action must be awesome, so you can never again do mundane things... like eating, drinking, sleeping and so on.

Joe Smith was puzzled by this. It seemed to him like dying of thirst or hunger would be just as un-awesome as eating or drinking. However, he didn't ask Ahlech the Genie to clarify because he was too embarrassed. Instead, he asked for a new wish - one that would fix the mess he's made of things thus far.

Unfortunately for you, mortal, that would be an incredibly mundane solution to an already borderline-mundane situation! Any being infused with the essence of Awesomeness would know this, even a simple human like yourself. Your reward comes with an unreturnable price - and a completely awesome one at that - me!

I will do as you wish, but firstly know this: As a punishment and curse for forcing me to remove myself from existence, your wealth will be greatly diminished for the rest of your days! Hear me, Mortal, when I say, that a Genie is not to be messed with. Especially one who has a cool title like "Genie of Wealth and Royalty".

You wish to know whether you can have more wishes? Very well, wish granted.

That was your only wish, though.

But.. but.. All the classical stories describe genies as granting three wishes, or even more. I'm going to sue you for false advertising, Genie!

Oh. Well... yes and no. No, you usually cannot have more wishes, and wishing for more wishes just wastes your wish. But as I... forgot... to grant your wish for a while, I do owe you another wish.

Joe Smith realized the folly of his wish just before 1 million brass genie lamps materialized all around him, crushing him under an immense weight. Just before the moment of death, he managed to croak out a single wish...

Joe Smith is now immortal, but still buried beneath a million brass lamps. The weight prevents him from moving. This is going to be a very long eternity for him...

Dunno, I guess, but most of 'em are dead now. Turns out if ya leave a genie for too long it dies. I'm not a genie, not officially, I'm only a kid, my boss is one of the few genies left alive. He's gonna be so pissed off I took this customer away from him, probably best, this way he dies!

The genie then pulls out a fag and begins to smoke it.
