You know the thought experiment about replacing all the parts of a boat one by one as it gets in disrepair, and whether or not it is still the same boat? Well, this is basically a silly improvisational story version of that! - At the start of the game, I provide a sentence that will be relatively normal. - Each poster gets to add, remove, or place one word. - Once it gets to the point that none of the original words of the sentence remain, someone will be able to follow up with their own sentence, which can be progressively altered.

The idea behind this is that eventually we may have a complete story, one that depending on what page you're on will look far different.

Let us start with our first sentence, which will not remain the same for long:

Grandma should come home in a couple of minutes.

Rules n What This Is
What is this?

This is an adaptation of a forum game on TV Tropes to the Trouble Cube Forums.


1. Don't godmod. This includes autohitting, having items you don't have a sufficient amount of currency for, etc.

2. Don't be unnecessarily rude. If you're doing it for laughs or in-character, then it's fine...but maybe specifiy it if it's not obvious.

3. When working to earn Rubikoins, it's encouraged that you roleplay and talk to people while doing so. However, these actions will take some time, and you must do each action for a certain amount. If you fail to do this, you will not earn money.

4. Don't kill people, unless you're fighting in an RP. If you want to battle, use the Arena.

Places are seperated into districts. You may roleplay with anyone in the same district. To go to a place, type ">go to [Place]".

* Residential District (Where all of the houses are. You may put furniture you buy at the Supermarket inside.)\

* Financial District (Includes Supermarket, Clothing store, pet store, Papa's Pizza, and Target):

** Supermarket (Where to buy most furniture and basic goods. It even includes a furniture section. As time goes on, more items will be added to the list, so check back every so often.) The current list includes:

Update Log:

  You Get An Item for Defeating the Above Avatar
Posted by: AyyBee121 - 03-22-2021, 06:55:06 AM - Forum: Forum games - Replies (7)

Say this is a video game. If you defeated the above avatar, what would they leave behind?
Example, with Cube-tan:
You Got: Trouble Cube
A strange Rubix-like cube with Cyan, Purple, and Reddish Pink faces. You can't, for the life of you, figure out how to solve it.

  The Street Trolley
Posted by: AyyBee121 - 03-22-2021, 05:38:59 AM - Forum: Roleplays - Replies (15)

In a colossal underground city in-between the words lies a trolley, not unlike those seen in San Fransisco. Through the mall-like structure it goes, picking up passengers from shops, homes, apartment complexes, and portals along the way. You get on the trolley, only to find others waiting as well. You don't have very much time to talk to them. What do you say?

This is a free-to-join, open RP. Feel free to drop in an any time, as any character(s).

  The Slakoth Run
Posted by: Guma - 03-20-2021, 21:23:27 PM - Forum: Alive Blogs - Replies (4)

[Image: the-slakoth-run-logo.png]

Many Pokémon challenge runners have stood up to the test of completing an entire game using only a single weak and unevolved Pokémon. MahDryBread, Jrose11, Pokémon Challenges, you name it. So I figured, if it's that easy, why not try it myself? In this run, I'm seeing if I can beat Pokémon Sapphire with nothing but a single Slakoth—and no items in battle. Can I do it? Only one way to find out.

The reason I picked Slakoth is of course its Ability, Truant. If you don't know, a Pokémon with Truant will “loaf around” and not use a move every two turns. Despite Slakoth's base 60 Attack and Defense, which is surprisingly good for an unevolved Pokémon, Truant combined with its other stats being weak will make even the early game tough. It's an ability tailor-made just for Slakoth and its final evolution Slaking.

Which begs the question: why does Durant have it?

* I must catch a Slakoth in Petalburg Woods and only use it for the rest of the game. I am not allowed to evolve it.
* I am allowed to catch other Pokémon for HMs, so long as I don't use them in combat. They must gain as little experience as physically possible.
* In-battle items are banned. Held items and out-of-battle items are fair game.
* Save scumming is allowed. I can reset from my last save by pressing A+B+Start+Select whenever I want.
* Emulator-specific tactics such as savestates and speedup are banned.
* The run ends once I defeat Steven Stone.

With my options and Trainer all set, I was ready to go. Also, #DownWithShiftMode.

After going through the usual motions, it was time to pick my starter. Now, MahDryBread always does this thing in his solo runs where he replaces a specific starter with his Pokémon to make sure the rival will have a type advantage over it.

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-27-19.png]

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-29-35.png]

Well, I'm not MahDryBread, so I picked Mudkip. It learns every required HM, but I would still need more HM Pokémon.

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-37-22.png]

Fucking finally.

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-38-43.png]

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-39-49.png]

Unfortunately, both the first Trainer battle on Route 102 and the first Brendan fight were completely unavoidable and caused Mudkip to gain some experience. Hopefully this is where it stays. I managed to avoid all other Trainers on my way to Petalburg.

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-42-28.png]

Of course my dad, with his 2 Slaking, was fully supportive of my goal.

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-46-04.png]

At last I arrived at Petalburg Woods. Along with catching 2 more HM Pokémon, all I had to do was wait for the magical moment to arrive.

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-53-20.png]

Meet Sloth Geller, the Pokémon that will conquer Hoenn or loaf around trying.

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-03-46.png]

And loaf around trying.

She's got a Lax nature, which is + Defense and - Sp. Def. Could be better . . . but could be worse.

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-01-30.png]

My HM Pokémon were stored in the Box for later.

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-05-37.png]

I fainted for the first time against the Lass on Route 102, as Zigzagoon are the single most annoying Pokémon for Slakoth to deal with, as they're really fast and can lower her Attack with Growl. And she had two of them. So I reset, focusing on the wild Pokémon instead before moving to Trainers. Fortunately, Scratch is 100% accurate and has STAB.

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-21-01.png]

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-27-14.png]

There was surprisingly good luck with crits while grinding.

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-30-37.png]

Slakoth fainted again against a Taillow on 104 the same level as her. Even his Seedot was a pain because of Bide.

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-33-13.png]

Oh yeah, this asshole.

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-51-07.png]

Ladies and gentlemen, the LOAF-OFF! [airhorns]

I demolished the 6-Wurmple Bug Catcher and the Team Aqua Grunt in the woods and went to battle the Trainers on the second half of Route 104, wherein I had not as much trouble as before due to Slakoth's higher level. One Trainer did give me problems, though.

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-56-43.png]

This Shroomish had Effect Spore, which put me to sleep *twice* on the first attempt, which caused me to faint and restart. (At this point, I'm not keeping track of faints anymore.) Second attempt, she paralyzed me, which is scary when combined with Truant. But Slakoth stood up against the odds, ate her Oran Berry, and attacked on every turn she could, winning the fight.

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-58-10.png]

What is it with kids and criticizing me in these games? First that boy in Dragon Quest XI who called me “horrible” for not getting his cat off of a rooftop, and now you.

[Image: Pokemon-Sapphire-Version-Europe-Rev-1-20...-13-01.png]

So now I'm at Rustboro and Slakoth is at Lv. 12. She learns Slack Off next level, which could be essential, but there's no way I'm beating Roxanne at this level. Signing off for now.

Because why not discuss all of our favourite fanworks? If you have something you'd like to reccomend, advertise your own fanworks, or talk about the tropes and other prevalent things in the genre, go ahead and post here! Just remember to keep it clean and to not link to explicit fanworks.

To start discussion, for all of you Yu-Gi-Oh! fans, I have discovered "A Delectable Collection of Scrumptious Tales", a small collection of fanworks relating to the Madolche card archetype that I have really enjoyed.
