Title: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Cuddly Khan on December 10, 2012, 07:49:45 PM
I'm not sure if you all already know how to play this but here goes.

One person say something good happens and the other something bad happens.

eg.
Person 1: Once upon a time there was a princess, unfortunately she was stuck in a tower.
Person 2: Fortunately, one day, a prince came to save her.
Person 3: Unfortunately the prince fell down a hole on the way there and died.
Person 2: Fortunately there were some stairs so the princes could just walk out anyway.

etc.




Ok, so I'll start.

One day Bob was on his way to the pool to have a swim, unfortunately it started raining.

Fortunately, Bob slipped, hit his head and then promptly drowned in the pool so the fact that it was raining didn't matter at all to him.

Unfortunately a passing lvl 9 cleric resurrected Bob so he had to deal with the rain after all
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Jubal on December 10, 2012, 08:31:21 PM
Fortunately, the cleric had an umbrella and gave it to Bob, so Bob was better able to deal with the rain.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Silver Wolf on December 10, 2012, 08:38:43 PM
Unfortunately, the umbrella seemed to work perfectly fine at that particular moment.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Dimos on December 10, 2012, 09:55:38 PM
Fortunately, the rain stoped after a while, so the umbrella was of no use anymore...
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Silver Wolf on December 10, 2012, 10:44:20 PM
Unfortunately, the possibility of Bob's unexpected unnatural death is now a lot smaller.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Cuddly Khan on December 11, 2012, 07:08:31 AM
Fortunately, the lvl 9 Cleric leveled up to a lvl 10 Cleric, making the possibility of 'Bob's unexpected unnatural death' much less likely to happen.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Jubal on December 11, 2012, 09:56:47 AM
Unfortunately, a new edition of the Rules That Be was released and clerics got nerfed, making wizards now a far better build.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Silver Wolf on December 11, 2012, 01:23:52 PM
Fortunately, Bob suffers an unexpected cardiac arrest.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Pentagathus on December 11, 2012, 09:22:52 PM
Unfortunately god does exist and he sends Bob to hell for eternal torment. What a alpaca.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Cuddly Khan on December 12, 2012, 10:32:09 AM
Fortunately, in Hell, Satan offers him a deal, that if he worked as an agent for him than he could go back into the real world... as a daemon in service of the devil.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Silver Wolf on December 12, 2012, 01:35:51 PM
Unfortunately, he proves to be incapable of such task so the devil rips his soul apart.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Jubal on December 12, 2012, 02:42:59 PM
Fortunately, Bob's friend the cleric (now level 12) reconstructs his soul and resurrects him again.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Silver Wolf on December 12, 2012, 05:00:48 PM
Unfortunately, Bob comes back to life as a horribly degenerated, mewling spawn with almost no signs of rational thought.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Cuddly Khan on December 12, 2012, 07:23:40 PM
Fortunately, Bob came back with a very huge urge to kill... everyone... anyone...
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Dimos on December 15, 2012, 03:14:10 PM
Unfortunately he had forgoten to bring his axe with him.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Silver Wolf on December 15, 2012, 03:46:24 PM
Fortunately, his hands are already disfigured and full of razor-sharp bone outgrowths, so the murders will continue.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: feet on December 17, 2012, 05:32:15 AM
Unfortunately, he's lost.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Cuddly Khan on December 17, 2012, 07:02:17 AM
Fortunately, the police caught him and through him in jail.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Silver Wolf on December 17, 2012, 10:08:44 AM
Unfortunately, his lightning fast metabolism allows him to chew through iron bars at the rate of 1 kg per minute.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: feet on December 18, 2012, 09:32:05 AM
Unfortunately, the bar's bronze.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Silver Wolf on December 18, 2012, 09:52:08 AM
Fortunately, that makes it's digestion even faster.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Cuddly Khan on December 18, 2012, 10:31:16 AM
Fortunately, the cell Bob is in is also imprisoned in another cell.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Dimos on December 19, 2012, 11:01:38 AM
Unfortunately the other cell is unlocked...
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Cuddly Khan on December 20, 2012, 05:13:06 AM
Fortunately, there are guards...
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Dimos on December 20, 2012, 09:37:51 PM
Unfortunatlely they are scared so much to act!
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Cuddly Khan on December 21, 2012, 12:32:21 AM
Fortunately, someone triggers and alarm.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: feet on December 21, 2012, 02:00:48 AM
Unfortunately, the alarm's broken.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Cuddly Khan on December 21, 2012, 10:15:41 AM
Fortunately, a guard runs and alerts everyone.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Dimos on December 22, 2012, 11:52:49 AM
Unfortunately, Bob had already escaped, and now he's in the alley, next to the prison...
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Jubal on December 31, 2012, 12:34:10 PM
Fortunately, the alley has a sandwich shop.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Dimos on December 31, 2012, 12:45:18 PM
Unfortunately Bob is allergic to chilly-stuffed sandwiches...
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: feet on January 05, 2013, 02:55:13 AM
Fortunately, the shop is on fire, turning the chilly sandwiches into ash.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Dimos on January 20, 2013, 03:53:16 PM
Unfortunately, Bob is responsible for that fire...
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Scarlet on April 16, 2013, 09:32:15 PM
Fortunately, he loves the bright orange flickery stuff.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Jubal on April 30, 2013, 09:44:06 PM
Unfortunately, fire kills. (Stop, drop, and roll, kids)
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Scarlet on May 03, 2013, 10:27:57 AM
Fortunately, he becomes one of the (many varieties of) undead.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Dimos on May 15, 2013, 06:41:15 PM
Unfortunately, he can't see the sun he so much loved in his real life! (Because the sun would kill our undead Bobby)
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Scarlet on May 16, 2013, 04:13:21 PM
Fortunately he had his own polly pocket fusion reactor.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Phoenixguard09 on May 29, 2013, 04:17:26 PM
Unfortunately, it was in his pocket. Which burnt off with the rest of his clothes.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Pentagathus on May 29, 2013, 05:47:32 PM
Fortunately, unbob likes being naked even more than he likes the sun.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Gen_Glory on May 29, 2013, 07:07:01 PM
unfortunately he suffers from porphyria so his skin begins to blister horribly
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Phoenixguard09 on May 30, 2013, 04:16:29 AM
Fortunately, his skin regenerates at the same rate as the blistering.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Scarlet on May 30, 2013, 12:18:31 PM
Unfortunately, this balanced equilibrium can easily be altered by the addition of other sources of electromagnetic radiation.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Phoenixguard09 on May 30, 2013, 03:10:29 PM
Fortunately, Bob can invest in an umbrella, which is quite affordable at this time of year and has been proven to reduce the effects of sunlight upon unprotected ski by up to seventy-eight percent. Or so I have been told.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Pentagathus on May 30, 2013, 08:30:38 PM
Unfortunately, Bob needed to reduce the effects of sunlight on his skin rather than his skis.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Dimos on June 02, 2013, 03:01:01 AM
Fortunately he found some sun-lotion, tossed in a trash can (with a high level of skin protection against the dangerous sun-rays!)
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Son of the King on July 17, 2013, 10:47:20 AM
Unfortunately there was hardly any sun cream left in the bottle, and it barely covered one arm.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Lady Grey on July 17, 2013, 11:36:10 AM
Fortunately, just as he'd used the last of the cream covering just one arm, the sun went in and dark clouds covered the sky.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Son of the King on July 17, 2013, 12:10:43 PM
Unfortunately, it started lashing down with rain.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Othko97 on July 17, 2013, 06:23:55 PM
Fortunately, he had a coat.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Son of the King on July 17, 2013, 06:25:20 PM
Unfortunately it didn't have a hood.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Othko97 on July 17, 2013, 06:34:18 PM
Fortunately he also had an umbrella.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Son of the King on July 17, 2013, 08:39:52 PM
Unfortunately it was a sun shade really, so the rain came through.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Scarlet on July 18, 2013, 11:36:29 AM
Fortunately, he also has a wide brimmed hat.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Dimos on July 18, 2013, 12:37:42 PM
Unfortunately he left it behind... (It was too heavy [ ;D] for his fragile arms to carry...)
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Son of the King on July 18, 2013, 01:11:29 PM
Fortunately he had a friend who carried it for him.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Dimos on July 18, 2013, 04:22:15 PM
Unfortunately, a bloodthirsty hyena attacked his friend, and ate the hat along with him...
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Lady Grey on July 18, 2013, 05:26:23 PM
Fortunately, watching his friend ripped to pieces by a hyena made him forget all about the rain.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Son of the King on July 18, 2013, 07:53:21 PM
Unfortunately, the hyena was not satisfied with just his friend.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Lady Grey on July 18, 2013, 08:47:05 PM
Fortunately, Bob was certain he wasn't tasty.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Othko97 on July 18, 2013, 09:33:10 PM
Unfortunately, Bob's idea was incorrect
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Son of the King on July 18, 2013, 11:10:01 PM
Fortunately he was less tasty than the dead zebra nearby.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Othko97 on July 18, 2013, 11:12:17 PM
Unfortunately, the hyena was still hungry.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Dimos on July 18, 2013, 11:33:37 PM
Fortunately Rob could climb trees like a chimpanzee (  ;) Hyenas' can't climb  :P )
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Son of the King on July 18, 2013, 11:34:56 PM
Unfortunately the tree fell down.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Lady Grey on July 18, 2013, 11:57:50 PM
Fortunately, as it did, it impaled the hyena.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Son of the King on July 18, 2013, 11:58:35 PM
Unfortunately, a lion happened upon the scene.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: comrade_general on July 19, 2013, 12:15:29 AM
Fortunately it was the cowardly lion.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Son of the King on July 19, 2013, 12:27:52 AM
Unfortunately he'd brought a brave lioness.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Lady Grey on July 19, 2013, 12:39:07 AM
Fortunately, cowardly lion didn't impress the brave lioness at all. Neither did Bob, as she seemed to have very little interest in him.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Othko97 on July 19, 2013, 07:13:58 AM
Unfortunately, Bob let out a sigh of relief upon realising this and attracted the attention of both lions. The lioness pressures the cowardly lion.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Son of the King on July 20, 2013, 05:53:46 PM
Fortunately the cowardly lion is not totally whipped, and so resists the pressure.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Lady Grey on July 20, 2013, 10:41:23 PM
Unfortunately, the cowardly lion thought he might himself have a try at being a fearsome one at that point.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Son of the King on July 21, 2013, 06:57:06 PM
Fortunately, he wasn't very good at being fearsome and did a miaow.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Cuddly Khan on August 03, 2013, 09:42:56 AM
Unfortunately, he had a 1, 000, 000 man army of Wombats with him.

Unfortunately, they are now zombies so the get back up again and start attacking again.

Fortunately, zombies are slow moving and cannot easily cross running water.

Unfortunately the sea creatures went extinct about 20 minutes ago.

Fortunately the waters were rapid so they got washed miles away down stream.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Dimos on September 14, 2013, 10:31:37 AM
Unfortunately the waters washed miles away Rob, along with the zombie-enemies. They were stuck in a swamp.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Cuddly Khan on September 15, 2013, 04:24:29 AM
Fortunately the swamp was full of friendly tree Ents.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Dimos on October 18, 2013, 12:12:41 PM
Unfortunately, the zombies were still present and enraged!
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Cuddly Khan on October 18, 2013, 11:15:31 PM
Fortunately the tree Ents weren't friendly towards zombies and they smashed them all to mush until none were left.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Jubal on October 19, 2013, 10:19:37 PM
Unfortunately the zombie mush turned out to be flammable and burned the Ents.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Cuddly Khan on October 20, 2013, 03:28:22 AM
Fortunately there were some cleaners nearby that cleaned up the mess of burned trees and zombie mush..

Fortunately he still has 3 hearts.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Dimos on February 11, 2014, 02:23:31 AM
Unfortunately he has Portugal-heart diseace, which causes them to explode one by one!
Boom! he lost -1 heart (again!) Boom!

Unfortunately, Pentagathus isn't part of our mushroom cult.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately

Fortunately, Pent can take over your cult with his Wibulnib Empire.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Cuddly Khan on July 18, 2014, 03:22:37 PM
Unfortunately, if he did that than he'd go on to take over Exilian.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Gmd on July 18, 2014, 03:30:48 PM
Fortunately, he has attempted that several times and failed. (cringes at flashbacks)

Fortunately a generous arctic pharmacist was on hand to provide them with his newest invention: Polar bear Rennie tablets
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Caradìlis on October 17, 2018, 09:36:57 PM

Fortunately you think of something to say at the last moment. A scientist who happened to be recording the utterance is moved to shed a single tear, and share the video with some friends. It's so powerful that rapidly spreads. The same day it gets broadcast worldwide on television and radio.
People stop what they are doing to listen to the broadcast, and everyone is changed for the better. People that were enemies become friends. World leaders unite on the issue of climate change and work together to fix the problems. People destined for a life of crime change their ways for good, and animal cruelty becomes a thing of the past.

Fortunately the wasps leave the job of setting up their communist revolution to a rather stupid wasp called Clive. He misunderstands what he is supposed to be doing so instead sets up a hippy commune. It turns out the wasps rather like it though, so they all sit around playing bongos with other insects, eat funny brownies and say "far out" at things.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately

Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Jubal on October 28, 2018, 11:36:44 AM

Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately

Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately

Unfortunately, the trees objected to having to put up with humans among their number, and went on strike.
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Tusky on October 28, 2018, 07:23:04 PM
Fortunately, that strike meant that the scientist's machine would no longer work properly and the humans reverted to their old squishy skin and bone selves again. Angered, they threw the scientist in jail
Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Jubal on October 28, 2018, 07:39:38 PM

Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Jubal on November 24, 2018, 11:45:48 AM
Fortunately, the fact the cat is hidden under the armoir means that it cannot catch and disembowel Professor McBlusterfluff's Highly Trained Titmouse, and the bird is thus able to deliver you an important letter.

Unfortunately, this means their attentions are elsewhere.
They uncover what they perceive to be a nefarious a plot by some clowns to defraud the circus they work for, but is actually a simple plan to give sweets and toys to the children at their next performance. They wrongfully arrest the clowns, along with some potential accomplices working at the circus. The evening's performance is reduced to featuring one lonely trapeze artist and Keith the horse riding juggler.
They struggle to win over the crowd.

Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately

Unfortunately the van was also carrying a book about science headed to a scientist that would have told him how to complete his tricky experiments. As a result of not receiving the book the scientist tried to use guess work. This failed, and the experiments went wrong. Instead of inventing a top grade scientific discovery, he made a petri dish go poof in a puff of black smoke.  It left a sooty mark all over his face and moustache, and cracked a lens on his glasses

Fortunately, the prison is the worst possible habitable place the intergalactic federation could think of to send us, a dying planet being choked by its own population, mostly covered in potentially lethal fluids, with vast wastelands uninhabitable due to extreme conditions and only a few fringe areas with satisfactory conditions to keep us all in, many of us living in cramped and inhumane conditions with poor sanitation and lack of basic services. We are condemned to this prison, called "Earth", for many, many years to come. Welcome home.

Title: Re: Fortunately, Unfortunately
Post by: Tusky on October 23, 2019, 10:50:24 AM
