The Lorelocke Challenge
By Aetherstorm~



Overview:
This specific locke challenge is very loosely based on the fantastical role-playing game of D&D, similarly dependent on a set of dice and led on by a highly immersive story, or, occasionally known as, a campaign.

This form of -locke relies entirely on thel isachehedron most commonly known as a d20.

It will decide the fate of the dragons living the course of your story. You are the Dungeon Master. They are the players. You create a story for them to live, and, though they may not be rolling initiative for every battle or depending on their unique statistics to get them through a wide variety of obstacles, it is very similar in fashion of having an interactive world where actions and consequences alike are decided by the roll of a die.

The only difference is that you are more than the Game Master.
Not only do you shape the world and decide what happens to it, as this is a locke heavily dependent on the creative arts of writing and drawing, you also decide everything that your ‘players’ do as well; it’d be a rather hard story to write on your own otherwise.
Thank you for reading!

The rules are as follows:

The assignments are as follows: Worldbuilding, Character Building, Challenge (Non-lethal), Challenge (Fatal), or New Encounter. If you wish to start out simply, without the struggle of assigning your own numbers, you may used the ones as follows:

2. Character Building
3. Worldbuilding
4. Worldbuilding
5. Challenge (Non-lethal)
6. Challenge (Non-lethal)
7. Character Building
8. Worldbuilding
9. New Encounter
10. Worldbuilding
11. Challenge (Fatal)
12. Character Building
13. Challenge (Non-lethal)
14. Character Building
15. Character Building

This will decide whether a dragon is challenged by nature, an opposing force, or some version of themselves. Beyond this, you can be as creative as you like!

If the roll landed on Fatal, assign each of your dragons a number and roll for which one will die!

Next is Character building, which, like challenges, can vary depending on the number you roll! There’s a lot of variety in Character building, of course.

Ooooh this sounds really fun! I could use some dragons from my lair that don't have a story yet, it's a great anti-writer block idea!

This sounds really interesting! I might have to do this with a few dragons. Just bought quite a few new dragons and have some older ones that need lore.
To set up a thread or not....humm?
