Ink Training Missle


A missile ment for a presant or future based RPG

It's a trainee’s worst nightmare. When flying these rockets explode when reaching a certain distance from the plane, splattering it with thick black ink that the pilot must clean himself. When doing this the character must roll a kind of willpower check. If they don’t pass it they get horribly mad and go into a blind rage.

A little bland...

Ok, I'm not against modern games, so this idea is fine and good, but it needs to be more than 4 sentances long.

Firstly, for the ink to hit the pilot, he would have to be in an exposed cockpit and flying slow and low enough for that. Even in that case, the missile would have to be able to explode infront of the plane to hit him, but that can be done with a computer as smart as an everyday calculator. But then to cover the plane, it has to be gallons and gallons of ink, at least 10 or twenty, and that is going to make it's flight characteristics all messed up, so a real missile will behave completely differently. And even when flying low and slow enought for an open cockpit, most any liquid will be blown away by the force of the wind, so for the ink to stick it would have to be very viscious and sticky as well, like a mucus or snot.

Aside from the physics of the thing, Why will the pilot go into a blind rage? Who uses it, who invented it, why not just use a lock on training system so they don't waste potentially useful ammunitions? What's the story?

You right it is a bit idealistic, but who plays these games for the realisticness? If it real matters to you that much play football or chess then everything will be realistic.

First off I never said it hit the pilot, also I never said it covered the whole plane ether. It jus covers about square yard of it. Your right in the since that it would be horribly sticky, it has the consistency of tar mixed with super glue and dries at extremely fast rates. Oh and the blind rage thing I am sure you would get very angry when trying to clean supper glue and tar off anything while your superiors yell at you for being incompetent. The reason I came up with this is to liven up a generally boring training system. (How many times have you ever enjoyed the tutorial in anything?) It’s more fun to dodge something visible then invisible.

P.S. Thanks for the input you really helped to fill up some holes. :)

I also don't think that ink would cause people to go mad, but then again, i guess strange stuff happens in rpgs all the time.

The ink itself does not cause the people to get angry, but the act of cleaning it up.

o ok. if i was an idiot, i wouldn't assume that youre saying that just to counter me.

I don't play to be realistic, but common sense has to reign supreme. If this ink only covers a square yard then it would have to be one hell of a shot...or hundreds of them used at the same time.

I highly doubt any kind of training would entail shooting a tar ball of super glue at anybody. And the last person to clean it would be the would be the maintenance person. Pilots don't do manual labor, even in space I would think. That only happens in Star Wars but then they have droids to do it. Even if they did clean it they wouldn't do it in the would they? Whey would you want blind rage in a training mission anyway? After all, if this happened everytime I am sure they would stop using it because of the multiple training accidents it caused.

It would be better off just staying ink that did come off after a few minutes and get rid of the rage part.

Tagging taken to the next level. This reminds me of the cyberpunk use of pellet guns, with pellets doped with narcotics or hallucigenics or acid. Or in other kinds of games, where you use holy water or other banes.

The idea is fine but it needs a much more detailed description.

Agreed - Vehicular Paintball is not a bad idea, though this is more of an idea seed then a submission.

Nine times out of ten, it’s the undead that do the running.

Not strictly animal or vegetable, the Corpse bud is a peculiar individual that shares characteristics from multiple kingdoms and species. In appearance, all corpse buds bear a shape of a large rounded top bud divided into four lateral segments, and a much longer, narrower bottom bud, also divided into four segments. Between the two halves are a set of four radial limbs, rounded on top and flat on the bottom, covered with tiny serrated hooks facing towards the body. In overall size, it’s limbs reach as wide as a spread hand, with the body being as thick as a fist. It is as long as a human hand from top to bottom.

Internally, the top bud of the corpse bud contains a bacteria filled membrane that produces the hydrogen that the corpse bud uses to stay aloft, and a series of fungal gills for the dispersal of spores for reproduction. The lower half of the bud contains a number of fine filaments, as well as a sharp barbed stinger containing a powerful local anaesthesia.

The Corpse Bud mobilizes by inflating its top bud, and steers by rotating its arms rapidly about its body. The corpse bud ordinarily drifts with the wind, orienting towards the scent of recent decay and death. It preys on the recently dead, burrowing the lower bud into the victim, using the anaesthesia in case the victim is dying, and not truly deceased. Once embedded, it releases its filaments into the body, replacing the current nervous system. This gives it full animation of the body, and allows the corpse bud to direct it.

Corpse buds are not a malevolent species, being primarily concerned with breaking down the host body for food, and infecting the reproductive cycle with spores in order to mate with other corpse-bud bodies. To preserve the corpse for this purpose, Corpse buds will seek out dry locations to prevent bacteria from destroying the corpses. This often causes a large number of corpse buds to gather in a single location.

In culture, Corpse buds are used to repair broken spines or degenerative diseases, as the sentient mind will easily overcome the mind of the non-sentient corpse bud. Once infected by a corpse bud, however, removal is usually fatal, and the infected individual cannot reproduce, or risk infecting another. Thus, it is a technique often reserved for the elderly, or a last resort.

Necromancers and other dark sorcerers will often preserve the corpses of their victims magically, and infect them with corpse buds, creating traditional undead as well, so as to seed their lairs with undead both offensive and non, in order to throw their enemies off balance. They will also enslave the rudimentary minds of the corpse buds, and transform the docile things into a plague. There have also been accounts of magically transformed corpse buds with stronger minds and a taste for living flesh, but thus far all accounts are unproven rumors.
