Suggest a Curse! Making a List of 100 for d/100 Usage

Recommended Posts

 

 

As the name suggests, I am compiling a list of 100 curses in this thread! This list will be usable for d100 rolls in the Dice Rolling Thread. For example, @Tyler just used the d100 roll there to correspond his roll result with a curse from a list of curses elsewhere.

Well, now we'll have our own list of 100 curses so that, if your character runs into a supernaturally adverse scenario and you're looking to mix up the possibilities, this list will be at your disposal!

I am taking suggestions for this list for the foreseeable future, so please provide me with scrumptious ideas for curses!

Rules

15 curse suggestions allowed per player.

Do not link to or reference external sites in this thread.

There are a couple small details I will add, but this system will be completed AFTER the list of 100 curses is gathered, reviewed, and accepted.

The duration of the curse is going to be a d6 roll for number of posts affected, but I'll pat down the full system after the curses.

How to Use Curses

- Go to the Dice Rolling thread and post.

- Use the d100 value to determine what number on this list your curse is. If there are extra rules to your curse, read as they pertain.

- Use the d10 value to determine the number of posts for which your character is affected (unless rules to curse state otherwise).

100 Curses (91, Almost There!!!)

1. Character can't stop crying for the duration of this curse.

2. Character's gender is swapped for the duration of this curse.

3. Character falls into a highly sensual romance with the first object they see for the duration of this curse.

4. Character's head will be on backward.

27. Character will be transformed into a horse.

28. Character will transform into whatever they fear the most! 28a. And overcome their fear because they got to walk a mile in the shoes of that thing? Maybe roll for 1 = overcome, 2 = over-empathize, and 3 = completely replace with new fear

29. Character's body will be changed into a geometric shape. (such as a sphere, cube, pyramid, etc.; no extremities and only able to wiggle for movement)

30. Character will blow up like a balloon and float away. (think Aunt Marge in Harry Potter 3)

38. I can't remember the name of this one to look it up but basically no.2 in reverse, where the sufferer believes that a stranger is a close friend

58. Dance, Pardner! Curse: The bottoms of the afflicted's feet feel like they are bare and on asphalt under the noonday sun in July in south Texas, as long as they are touching the ground (flying character may be able to cheat this one) for the duration.

59. You Dirty Motherfucker. Curse: The afflicted's hands are undetectably coated in a thin layer of jalepeno juice for the duration, causing every eye rub or ball scratch to deposit the substance somewhere it really, really ought not to be.

60. Dear God, There's MORE? Curse: An inviolable ghostly figure appears and begins listing all of the things that are wrong with the afflicted; personality flaws, physical attractiveness, mental deficiencies, sexual disappointments, etc, each backed up with supporting evidence from the afflicted's past (as distant as necessary). The ghost will occasionally stop talking for a few seconds, long enough to make the afflicted think the curse is over,  then will begin again

60. Contagious Curse: Everyone touched by the afflicted individual will be cursed as well (roll for new curse for each individual effected). The carrier will not feel any different and won't have a way of figuring out they are spreading curses until they've already done so and reasoned it out.

61. Curse of the Hydra: The two closest people to the afflicted individual will be absorbed into their body and will become a head attached to said body. The original afflicted will maintain control of the body movements, but each head will be able to move independently. Every person subsequently touched by the afflicted will also be absorbed.

72. Angry dad: A man stands nearby, grimacing and shaking his head at your every decision.

73: Disappointed parents: Two elderly figures appear, making suggestions to better your character’s lifestyle. They’re not mad at your character’s decisions, they’re just a little disappointed.

74: The wasp effect: Character becomes a wasp, drawn to every flower they see out of a sense of duty.

75. Character falls in love with the first person or object he/she sees.

76. Rumble Curse: Every turn you are affected by the Rumble Curse, you roll a new d100 to determine which curse affects you this turn.

78: Beeflies of all types spawn near and swarm your character.

79: The Rude Scyzophrenic: A second, persistent voice enters your character’s head. Your character can still say whatever they want, but immediately after your character speaks, the voice booms from your character’s lips denouncing whatever your character just said.

80: Quzzical: Every statement your character makes must be a question.

81: Your character is blind for the duration of this curse.

82: Your character now deigns down on others, suddenly under the impression that they are of kingly/queenly stature and those around them are but squires.

90: Your character is convinced everyone around them is just a figment of his or her imagination.

91: Your character thinks they are invisible, but they are not.

92: Moral Swap: If your character is normally moral, they suddenly become highly immoral for the rest of the thread. If they are regularly immoral, the effect is the opposite.

93: Giving Candy to Babies: Children are attracted to your character under the impression that he/she will give them candy. This decreases stealth because children are always accosting your character for sweets.

94: Your character gains a new fear voted on by the rest of your party for the duration of curse.

95: Curse of the Flaccid Sword: Your character now wields a floppy sword that can only be slapped into enemies— the sword does not cut.

96. The Curse of Fatal Death: Your character instantly dies. Then regenerates. Upon regeneration, memories and general alignment remain the same, but your character's appearance and personality are altered, as if they were a 're-imagining' of the same character. Over the course of the next ten minutes, your character will die and regenerate anywhere from one to four more times (either pick a number or roll it), with the final regeneration returning them to their original self.

97. The Curse of Curses: Re-roll three times. You are now affected by all three curses you rolled. If two curses contradict each other, either merge them or pick one. If one of the three re-rolls is this curse, then guess what: it still applies.

98. The Curse of Cursing: Your character is now indescribably angry, and for the duration of the curse must insert at least three expletives in every sentence they speak or think. Expletives cannot be repeated within a given sentence (e.g. no "fucking fucker," be creative).

Aw man, since I've got a list of 50-something curses, I could contribute so man, but I'll try to pick the best ones...

1. Character's head will be on backward.

2. Characters face will disappear.

3. Character will be transformed into a _____.   --  Honestly, you can have as many transformations as you can think of things to transform into, I don't know how you want to count this Amenities, if you have it be each number is an individual subject, or a category (as my list has) or just one shot thing for a transformation that gets picked by a separate roll or author choices.

Imo for number 3 you should specify an individual creature so others can do the same and we can have some really varied results built up from a crowdsourced effort 

Making suggestions one at a time . . . 

1. Character draws friendly fire in combat situations for duration

I don't know what Amenities is thinking, but for my model, I used a dice roll to determine the number of post turns. However, a user could also do other things, like determine an in-universe time frame (several hours, days, weeks, months) or a thread count even.

If we do each suggestion as an individual transformation, then my suggestion shall be tree. Then 2/3 of my curses shall be from Dante's Inferno. Hehehehe.

I love this idea!

1.) Character forgets the last 15 minutes every time their name/nickname is said for the duration of the curse. 

2.) Character switches alignment for duration of curse. (Ex: Good becomes evil, lawful becomes chaotic, neutral changes to something else, etc...)

3.) character hallucinates a swarm of spiders crawling on their body.

Oh I had a few in my maddening mists thread too. The ones that seemed to have worked out best are

1) Berserk - disregards friend or foe, sees every moving thing as something to be defeated

2) Personality change - suddenly have an opposite personality (this can actually turn a gloomy person.. happy??)

3) Nightmare - seeing things that are not there or distorting everything into much worse than it is

Oh, it might be worth it for the transformation-related ones to specify whether or not the character retains sentience or not. I usually operate with them retaining their mind, since that's better for the player (and funnier for the character).

Agreed. In fact that should be the default assumption and people should just note otherwise. Cause it would not be fun to make between 1 and 6 posts about being a tree, waving in the breeze, and photosynthesizing. Maybe one post but definitely not six

1 post about that would actually be appealing ?
