In Your Game

This was a Joke that was played upon in an evil game that I once played in where a PC tried to come up with a "standard Issue" EVERYTHING ( SI: Cat, SI:Bird, SI: Octopus, Etc.) The point was to offer players a Magic token that could summon the creature for one quick use. What that use happened to be was up to the PC that used it.

This also played off a 1st edition Ad&d joke about a wizard having a Disable Trap Spell. The ingredients needed for this spell were 1 standard Fighter or Barbarian, 1 really good Lie, and then the wizard just pointed to the area and the spell was cast. The materials of this spell might be used up in the casting of the spell. ( Joke: the PC who went forward might die)

Examples of Use:

* PC's come across a hall way they think is trapped. No body can find traps so instead of putting themselves at risk, send in the S.I.E.G. to walk the hall way. If a Trap triggers, Goat is gone, and now its safe. ( well maybe)

* PC's Find them selves getting overwhelmed by a fight, deploy A S.I.E.G. to fight one monster, or act as a shield for another. Goat will fight till death, or take damage for one while they heal quick.

*PC's need a quick distraction as a group of ruffians close in at a local tavern. No room to start a bar fight, Deploy a S.I.E.G. to distract the ruffians while you get the upper hand.

Ok, like I said in cbox, short. Very short. You could probably have passed it as an idea. But that being said, it is a simple but nice idea, though a bit on the cruel side maybe. Poor goats.

You seem to be targetting fantasy, yet it reads like a modern day Commercial. I get that it's supposed to be Gnomish, but it's hardly an invention after all, it's just a goat? Unless it's some kind of summon fake goat spell or an inflatable goat or something. More details!

I dunno if you have unlocked freetext yet, but you should probably slap on a 'Silly' freetext on this when you can.

I'll give you an extra .5 just for the idea alone and because you caught me on a good day, but it is on the short side.

It's ment to be silly, its something that was "invented" in an Evil game we were playing. It's a running joke in my group of gamer's, if the creature is too strong, and every one else has fallen down, deploy A S.I.E.G. and Get the F*** Out of there.

I promise, i will add to this!

Maybe if it was a bat-winged, carnivorous goat, i could see it.

Hmmm. I loved it and laughed all the way through.

I took it tongue in cheek and accepted it for what it was and I left fully satisfied.

SIEG tastes good too!

Cute bit of silliness. There should be a fifth word, beginning with the letter E, so the acronym can be SIEGE. Maybe a highly specialized version which permits the user to win free of a besieged location. The Standard Issue Escape Goat.... okay, I got nothing. I just want to see it become "SIEGE." :P

We need a shot of strangeness from time to time. This certainly delivers :)

A group of humans living in a mountainous area have spent generations mining, drinking home made liquor, and generally not spreading the gene pool around enough. The end result is a sub-race of humans who no longer have necks, rather their heads protrude from the upper portion of the torso between the shoulders. They have beards, and lacking the ability to turn their heads, can only see what they are directly facing. They are simple and to the point, and direct to the point of bluntness.
