Don’t talk to me about BW2, ever. I don’t want to talk about it with you.
Do you know the basic rules of an RTD?

If not, here's An example for you.

The game is simple, before you perform your action, you must roll to breathe. If you get lower than a 3, you die and will remain dead for the rest of the game.

The last person to die/stay alive is the winner.

Good luck.

Round Two:
well, this may or may not end well.

if i somehow die first, understandable have a great day.

First, you roll to breathe: [4] You successfully manage to breathe

[6]: You sell so much weed out of your basement that the local mafia sees you as a threat and sends a hitman to kill you. He's lean and mean, and he's soulless like a machine, you must roll to dodge!

[4 for Goon/1 for Sugar]: The Goon shoots you in the head with a shotgun, splattering your grey matter all over your precious cannabis, ending your operation permanently.

You are dead, may you rest in peace.

I purchase a respirator in case I ever forget to breathe in the future.

First, you roll to breathe: [6] You successfully manage to breathe

[2]: You realize however that you are broke, and cannot afford to purchase a respirator. I guess you need to get back to work if you're to survive.

I roll to breathe.
I buy an inhaler so I can have help breathing now and later

You roll to breathe: [5] You successfully manage to breathe
[1]: You don't buy an inhaler and instead wind up smoking some of Sugar's Left-Over cannabis, the resulting smoke causes your lungs to spasm and you start to choke. You must roll to dodge!

[2 for Smoke/3 for Myz]: You just barely manage to recover from the smoke, and you take a seat next to Sugar's dead body while you question your course of action.

I hold my breath

First, you roll to breathe: [5]: You successfully manage to breathe

[2]: You decide that holding your breath could make you accidentally choke and cause you to stop breathing in the future so you don't hold your breath.

Results:
Sugar - Dead
Egg - Alive
Myz - Alive
Hobo - Alive

Round Three:
Oh well, I guess that I need to get some cash.

I get a job working at a respirator factory so that I can hopefully get a discount on their products in the future.

You roll to breathe: [3] You successfully manage to breathe

[6]: You not only get a job at the respirator factory, you get so highly promoted that you become the CEO. But because you were promoted so quickly, the stress of having to run a company is severely impacting your physical health, and you have a heart attack! You must roll to dodge!

[2 for Heart Attack/4 for Egg]: You luckily manage to survive your heart attack, and take a few days of rest at the local hospital.

I roll to build up speed for 12 hours.

You roll to breathe: [1] You fail to breathe and suffocate slowly in the painful lack of oxygen. Your life flashes before your eyes... what were you going to accomplish with your action, how were you going to change the world. Well, it sadly doesn't matter now because you are dead.

May you rest in peace.

This is probably a mistake.

I look up tutorials on how to master breathing.

You roll to breathe: [2] You fail to breathe, you begin to realize that this world is unfair, that the rules of this world are clearly very broken and unhinged. But it is too late now to change neither the rules or your fate. You slowly fade into the darkness while wondering why the dice didn't roll the way you needed them to. Oh well, I guess you are dead.

May you rest in peace.

I meditate to practice how to control my breathing.

You roll to breathe: [3] You successfully manage to breathe.

[2]: You attempt to meditate, but you just simply cannot control your ki enough to focus it into your breathing technique. Well, there's always next time.

I drink an ice cold beer

You roll to breathe: [3]: You successfully manage to breathe.

[4]: You grab yourself a cold one and sit on your couch while you watch a news program announcing the deaths of Sugar, War Anvil, and VGBM.

Results:
Sugar - Dead
Egg - Alive
Myz - Alive
Hobo - Alive
War - Dead
VGBM - Dead
Unknown - Alive

Okay, the heart attack was a setback, but hey, I’m rich now! I can finally purchase that respirator. While I’m at it, I give all of my employees free respirators as well. I can afford it.

Round Four:
Ok, did not expect to survive that. I go online and look up techniques to improve meditation.

You roll to breathe: [2] You fail to breathe and begin crawling on the floor, trying to reach a tank of oxygen. You force your body forward, inching ever closer to the tank, your hand reaching the hose and then... nothing. Your limbs plop to the ground as you proceed to pass on, it's a shame that you are dead.

May you rest in peace.

Okay, the heart attack was a setback, but hey, I’m rich now! I can finally purchase that respirator. While I’m at it, I give all of my employees free respirators as well. I can afford it.

You roll to breathe: [6] You successfully manage to breathe

[5]: You not only purchase a respirator for yourself, but for all of your employees. They are very appreciative and hold a celebration in your honor. You have the ability to reroll to breathe next turn, after that you'll have to get another respirator in order to keep the effect.


boy howdy how am I still alive?


I ponder life's great mysteries

You roll to breathe: [2] Your mouth begins to foam as the air in your lungs slowly begins to evaporate into Carbon Dioxide. You try to take one last swig of your beer, one last reminder of the happiness you felt... but the glass falls to the ground and shatters. You try to lap it up, to get one final taste of the alcohol into your system, but you fall over on your back as your eyes roll ever closer into your skull, causing you to finally realize that you are dead.

May you rest in peace.

Because Myz didn't have an action last turn, I will roll for their breathing now.

[1]: Myz suffocates in an out of focus scene that will not be described because the cameramen couldn't capture any footage.

FINAL RESULTS:

TheTRUEgge - WINNER

Sugar - Dead
Myz - Dead
Hobo - Dead
War - Dead
VGBM - Dead
Unknown - Dead


Thank you for playing!
