    NOTE - Conflicts has been moved to a Discord, meaning we're no longer using these forums. If you want to join based on the information shown below, contact me and we'll see if it can work out.

    Honorary credits go to @PL45M4 D3V45T4T0R for being an original host before we parted ways and @bigbluu722 for listening and helping me brainstorm for ideas, alongside with proof reading a lot.

    Some things to note about this forum game
    -Yes, I know I'm not amazing at writing, and some people can deem my writing as cringey. I know, I know, I like criticism, but please don't mess around with this. I spent actual hours of effort drawing, typing, planning, so don't join for ironic purposes or make fun of me for doing this.
    -I'm not the best map artist and some things will probably not be exactly to scale, additionally speaking there is no scale, meaning I don't know whether it's measured by miles or feet, to be honest. It's just there so you can imagine what Valleys looks like for yourself.
    -This forum game highly relies on our Discord server. If you're not in the Discord server or I don't allow you to join it, you will not be participating in this forum game, period. This means I also get to make judgement on whom I allow to participate.


    What is Conflicts?
    Conflicts is a forum game made by me and partially @PL45M4 D3V45T4T0R, which takes place in a fictional world called Valleys. Including drawn maps, lots of info for typing, and me included, you're able to join and make your own character to explore this world and try to achieve your goals. I know that, compared to other forum games (i.e. Plasmatic Reality and/or Kingdom of Bismuth), this is going to take a bit more of a convoluted turn. Questions are perfectly okay, and I will try to help you understand a lot of the things that go on here, since I know it is going to get a bit crazy and joining is a pretty big info dump.

    How do I play?
    To play Conflicts, you first need to know how decisions and stats work, alongside with making a character and joining our Discord server (pm me for a link).

    All decisions are made off of a 20 Sided Die decided by Sidekick, a discord bot for dice rolling. Each decision has a chance out of 20 to succeed (note that succeeding isn't always necessarily a good thing, and sometimes percentages can be a lie in certain circumstances. For example, succeeding to say something doesn't mean the intentions of saying it is resolved, it just means you succeeded in saying something). Depending on what number you get determines whether you succeed or fail in the action chosen.

    Note that the exact number you get still matters. For example, if you need to get a 3 or greater to succeed, rolling a 3 would be barely making it while rolling a 20 makes you do it practically perfectly.

    The formula used to show your chances of succeeding in a percentage is (x -/+ y)5 - 5, x being the original number and y being other external variables added or subtracted.

    Here's an example of a decision. Lets say you're running from a dragon, and you have the following choices,
    [ KEEP RUNNING ] Surely you can eventually outrun the dragon. (14 - 5 Dexterity)
    [ TRY AND HIDE ]
    You can obviously outsmart a dragon. (3 - 1 Wit)

    This means that your chance of trying to hide is a 2 out of 20 chance, while trying to run is a 9 out of 20 chance. You're probably wondering what exactly Dexterity or Wit is, which is what the next section is for.

    STATS
    There are 7 total stats in the game (or 8 if you're an ilmig). These stats are Vitality, Dexterity, Strength, Charisma, Intellect, Wit, and Perception - Stability is also an additional stat for ilmigs.

    [ VITALITY ] is a stat that determines how healthy you are and how much you can endure before injuries, death, or infections happen.

    [ DEXTERITY ] is a stat that determines how flexible, acrobatic, and fast you are in all physical actions like running or moving your arms.

    [ STRENGTH ] is a stat that determines how strong you are physically like how hard you can punch or pull, or how how much you can carry at once.

    [ CHARISMA ]
    is a stat that determines how friendly and good you are at talking, which helps bartering, lying, and knowing social cues.

    [ INTELLECT ]
    is a stat that determines your booksmarts and knowledge about intelligable things, and also increases your mental thoughts and influences how good you are at magic.

    [ WIT ] is a stat that determines your streetsmarts and strengthens your reflexes and how keen or sharp you are.

    [ PERCEPTION ] is a stat that determines how good you are at noticing certain things by using your five senses.

    With that out of the way, the last thing we need to talk about is . . .
    RACES
    These are extremely brief summaries of every race - if you want detailed versions, I suggest reading them on the Discord server, specifically the channel #grimoire-races.

    Humans are basically the generic race - they want unity and they discovered the main type of technology, steam technology (electricity and all that stuff has been entirely missed).
    +3 To Any Stat(s)

    Ilmigs are slightly smaller, like dwarves. When an ilmig dies, they leave behind a tuning, or a ghost. Ilmigs are able to capture tunings and convert them into energy, which they call holotech. Additionally, ilmigs have an eighth stat called Stability, which helps keep away depression (as ilmigs get a lot of depression and/or suicidal thoughts) and allows them to see tunings better.
    +2 Vitality, +2 Stability, +2 Strength
    -2 Intellect


    Sendrows are the aquatic race of the bunch. With killer instincts, they aren't the most friendly ones, but they're really good at killing. Additionally, they have the ability to hive, or talk to other nearby sendrows using their mind instead of their mouths.
    +3 Strength, +2 Wit, +2 Perception
    -3 Charisma

    Cyndigs
    are similar to what people describe them as "magma lizards." With the ability to traverse cold and hot temperatures, alongside with having rock hard skin and being able to endure a lot, they're able to trade easily and therefore became very wealthy as a race. A huge downside to them is the fact that they cannot use magic, whatsoever, or use magic-related tools or technology.
    +4 Charisma, +4 Vitality
    -2 Dexterity, -1 Perception

    Lyrae
    are the most similar to humans except for their horns, which grow over maturity and are based on where you are in society (You will have ram horns, which means you're an adventurer. Other examples are how criminals lose their horns and the royal family has tree branches for horns). Additionally, they're able to use a specific type of magic called frauning, or blood magic, and can technically live infinitely, but have very weak skin.
    +3 Dexterity, +4 Intellect
    -3 Vitality

    With that out of the way, here are the character sheets!

    Character Sheets

    Name
    : Name here, nothing overly complicated, don't mind if you don't have a last name
    Gender: Male or female
    Race: One of the five races given above

    Basic Character: Personality, characteristic traits, backstory, practicalities, etc. go here

    Points Assigned:

    You are given 18 Points to assign to the stats below (or 21 if you're a human). Delete all "Racial Bonuses" except for the race you are (for example, if you're a sendrow, delete all racial bonuses in parentheses except for the sendrow ones). Your stats cannot go below 1, and they have to stay at 1 or above after the racial bonuses. There is a maximum of 8 points in one stat. Don't add anything for Stability if you're not an ilmig.

    [ VITALITY ]
    (+4 Cyndig) (+2 Ilmig) (-3 Lyrae)
    [ DEXTERITY ] (-2 Cyndig) (+3 Lyrae)
    [ STRENGTH ] (+2 Ilmig) (+3 Sendrow)
    [ CHARISMA ] (+4 Cyndig) (-3 Sendrow)
    [ INTELLECT ] (-2 Ilmig) (+4 Lyrae)
    [ WIT] (+2 Sendrow)
    [ PERCEPTION ] (-1 Cyndig) (+2 Sendrow)

    [ STABILITY ]
    (+2 Ilmig)

    Town Location: Towns are shown below in the maps, represented by flags. Flag color shows which race they are. If you don't know the towns, most likely you haven't read through the map in the Discord server.

    Unless I get proved wrong, RIP Holiday Menace until Both Plasmatic and Conflicts are dead. Hope I'm wrong. Hmm... also, isn't it interesting that 3 semi-popular creators are doing forum games atm? Yeah... I'm not surprised

    Welp, *cracks knuckles* time to get this started. Don't mind any... well... blinding white light for a minute... tee hee...

    Name:
    Red

    Gender: Male

    Race: Lyrae

    Basic Character: Red is around mid-adult, with a strong heart for safety and compassion (though his skin is like jelly-strength). His horns are very big and strong due to minimal criminal records. Speed and skill was Red's thing when he was a child, in which he succeeded in his lifetime. For some townspeople, Red was considered a hero for his countless successes when times of the Lyrae get grim. However, Red wanted to go bigger... said by this excerpt...

    "Valleys seems like a perfect world, but Red wants to discover everything about this said "perfect world". Using the skills he learned as a child, and with his very trusty (though not very powerful) wooden wand he likes to call, "The Wand of Nature", Red searches for intelligence, power, and strength to eliminate any threats to make this "perfect world" safer."


    Starter Weapon: A basic wand made of wood that currently has some essence in it. (Red nicknames it "The Wand of Nature").

    , DIEKONRADISH, VIVIAN, JOE, WOLPERTINGER (INDIVIDUAL DECISIONS)

    It turns out being in a city as remarkable as Heavenforge and walking outside the day after entering the place can cause some confusion - this was no different for you.

    Minding your own business in a rather popular plaza, all of the people hustling about to do their affairs, you ponder what you want to do on the start of this day. Time is of the essence, and adventurers don't waste any resources they have! Concentrating on where you want to go first, you scan your surroundings, trying to avoid the common commotion from the locals. After spending some money at a local inn, you're ready to do something.
    *Bluu - Getting glances from other people was rather uncomfortable. Although all races were allowed here, the sudden notice of little sendrows in this area became obvious when you started getting nervous looks from locals.
    *Others - How fun this is!

    [ LEAVE THE PLAZA ] Let's be honest ~ The current areas given to you are rather trash. The most closest and sensible exit is a gateway to a park with nature. Other lyrae are there, and it seems like there's more areas that way, might as well go there, right? (0)
    [ VISIT NEARBY ADVENTURER'S SHOP ]
    The most intriguing stand out of the ones in the plaza is the adventurer's stand that's selling items for a decent amount of gold. They might have something good, and if they don't, you'll still get a taste for what this place has for you, alongside with being able to ponder on where you want to go next afterwards. (0)

    Atlas is as depressing as it is rumored.

    Despite being one of the most popular towns of the world, the place had a misty feel to it, from the somewhat gray air to the straight faces all the villagers had. The majority of people looked like they belonged more in a history book than a town that was originally meant for guilding. The appeal of being in a place known for its past historical events of surviving the closest you could get to a bomb was not as exciting as it appeared. After sleeping at a nearby inn, you just wandered around the area, hoping for something interesting to happen with little luck. On the bright side, the inn costed just as much gold as the gold you found left on the ground that you decided to spend it on.

    That is until you hear mutterings about a witch trial being held that day.

    [ ASK THE LOCALS ABOUT THE WITCH TRIAL ] I mean, how else would you find out what the commotion is about? (5 - 7 CHARISMA = -2)
    [ WAIT AND SEE ]
    Maybe it's bad - witch trials were never meant to be surprise parties. Maybe seeing how it unfolds and trying to discover it on your own would be a better solution. (0)
    [ GIVE IT NO THOUGHT, LEAVE ]
    You haven't ventured far into town yet - leaving would be easy. The mentioning of a witch trial just confirmed your suspicions about how lame this town is. The only question is where from here. (0)

    Arriving in Halla Village was definitely a treat.

    The expectations were unmatched by the arrival of the top notch guards surrounding the place. The climb was tremendous, and the destination was practically almost 20 degrees colder from the beginning, and gave you soreness all around your body. Entering the area immediately made you feel warmer as fire engines were placed around everywhere, compound crystals littered around the area in multicolored versions. The sights were true! Elevators actually did exist, and although weren't the top quality speed, it was still an amazing truth to behold in your mind that you have moved through the air without your feet.

    After finally exposing yourself to the treats of Halla Village by a good nights rest in a cozy area, you realized exactly how expensive this place is, but it was well worth it. Now, where to next?
    [ -40 GOLD ]

    [ WALK AROUND, ENJOY THE SIGHTS ]
    Halla Village was a lucky pick - everything seems so futuristic, and the tourists and adventurers swarm together like moths. Wouldn't hurt to join them and enjoy the sights, maybe get used to being here a bit more before taking off in an adventure for glory. You'll be avoiding others though, keeping to yourself is important when visiting these feisty places, wouldn't want to get robbed. (4 - 3 PERCEPTION = 1)
    [ ADVENTURE GUILD ]
    Okay, we already had enough time to enjoy the place. Halla Village happens to have the luxury of having lots of adventure guilds, or areas to complete quests for gold. Might as well, right? (0)

    Taiga Stones is neat.

    Which you pretty much expected, since the place is in the middle of a stranded desert. Cyndigs are able to take the heat, but only them, which left no room for other racial tourists. Sleeping in a rather comfortable inn that let the price be on the house since apparently tourists are able to sleep there for free, you were pretty happy with the results of coming here. The main idea of finding the fire artifact was still fresh in your mind, and you pondered exactly what you wanted to do to conquer this thought in your mind. Every other location is designed for finding it, so walking for a few minutes would help form a party with others and you could already be well off on your way!

    [ LOOK FOR AN ADVENTURE GUILD ] Taiga Stones has adventure guilds, or areas that are for doing quests requested by other locals in return for gold upon doing it. Taiga Stones also allows people to meet up at adventure guilds to form parties to venture towards the artifact though, so it's getting two birds with one stone. (0)
    [ ASK AROUND WITH THE LOCALS ]
    Won't hurt, right? Maybe you'll find out some useful information. (16 - 5 CHARISMA = 11)

    Ruinia definitely deserves the title for the most popular city in the world.

    In fact, that's an understatement. The only way to see no one else nearby you within a 20 feet radius is by closing your eyes or going to illegal areas. The feeling of being on a floating island is breathtaking, as you can feel the ground levitate, raise, lower in the air - after a bit, it feels like gravity has lost most of its impact. Buildings of any kind rose up from the ground to lure tourists, locals, and adventurers alike into their area, like a competition of how much attention you could get. Bright colors were plastered everywhere and sometimes a cloud would go through the area, which would mysteriously only laminate the buildings - asking nearby locals made them respond that it had something to do with the materials responding to water vapor. Since it's a floating island, walking up involved using a lot of complicated methods that ended up blurring into the same idea of going higher in the sky by using balloons, but it was a very costly factor. Now that you were here though, what now? The main interest is the air artifact, so, do you want to make a party to visit it by going to an adventure guild, or what?
    [ -110 GOLD ]

    [ LOOK FOR AN ADVENTURE GUILD ]
    Ruinia has adventure guilds, or areas that are for doing quests requested by other locals in return for gold upon doing it. Because of the nearby air artifact, Ruinia also allows people to make parties to adventure to the temple at them. Why not try to go to a nearby one - there's practically one every 50 yards. (0)

    Won't hurt, right? Maybe you'll find out some useful information. (8 - 3 CHARISMA = 5 RED) (8 - 2 CHARISMA = 6 WORTAL)

    Reignfold was not lying - this place treated all sendrows equally like gods.

    A short visit has piled into a relaxing day of treating yourself to stroke your pride knowing how hard the journey here was. After a bit of thinking though, realization of no adventure guilds here made a slight dilemma. An adventurer mainly made money off of adventure guilds, as they gave quests for money. No adventure guilds, no money, and eventually you'd be dead. It's possible you could've missed one while relaxing - it was a rather busy day.
    [ -60 GOLD ]

    [ LOOK AROUND FOR AN ADVENTURE GUILD ]
    Maybe you missed one? (17 - 3 PERCEPTION = 14)
    [ IT'S TIME TO LEAVE ]
    It was nice being here, but if you can't benefit from here, what's the point? (0)

    MANE, PLASMA (INDIVIDUAL DECISIONS)
    Centerfude is the definition of rich kids.

    Ilmigs and cyndigs walked around everywhere, not another race in sight. It was obvious that the majority of people walking around were locals, and rather rich ones - whether they held jewels or gold to show off their wealth, they walked around as if they owned the place. But they never did it for no reason - everyone was in a hurry constantly. After spending a bit of gold, you wonder where to go next.
    *Mane - The idea of the Cave of Sorrows is interesting for you.
    *Plasma - Talking is fun!

    [ -45 GOLD ]

    [ TALK WITH THE LOCALS ] Talking is fun. You'll talk to cyndigs or ilmigs, depending on your race. You feel like gathering information anyway, plus talking about stuff isn't a crime. (9 - 5 CHARISMA = 4 MANE) (3 - 3 CHARISMA = 0 PLASMA)
    [ WALK AROUND TO LOOK FOR AN ADVENTURE GUILD ]
    Adventure guilds are places where you can visit quests requested by locals and resolve them in return for gold - basically the profit of an adventurer. Something you might want to find in this rather busy and complicated town with holotech everywhere. (11 - 1 PERCEPTION = 10 MANE) (11 - 2 PERCEPTION = 9 PLASMA)

    SEHN
    You haven't seen anything related to crystal growing.

    Of course, the mere idea of compound crystals growing on plants sounds like a half-assed lie. It becoming a reality could change the world, so it's obvious you wouldn't see it done publicly, but it was a shame to know that you wouldn't be able to see the reason why the place is so popular in action. Nevertheless, you had a good sleep without spending gold while on the way here, and you're willing to adventure out for something now!

    That is, until you find out a snowstorm is hitting that day. Locals say that snowstorms hit Volace frequently, especially the tundra areas, but it was still sad to hear that one was actually happening within such a short timespan. The sun has became engulfed in clouds as seemingly harmless snow started to fill up the areas. You're currently outside, and you're wondering that . . .

    [ YOU SHOULD STAY OUTSIDE ] It doesn't seem like the most logical option at first, but you have relatively tough skin, alongside with the fact that there might be something interesting when it snows! Plus, the snow won't disappear for a good amount of time - going inside an inn would mean being trapped inside, since no windows really open. (7 - 3 Vitality = 4)
    [ YOU SHOULD GO INSIDE AN INN ]
    Snowing in a village means you should take safety precautions - if the locals are going inside the houses, then you should too. They've lived here longer than you. (0)
