The Best/Worst game of Ding Dong Ditch Ever
Backstory: We’re playing a custom game set in the Fallout universe using the GURPS system, Taking place before Fallout New Vegas. We had come across a park full of dead pine trees, and suspecting it to be trapped we decided to go around it. As we went our DM kept making secret rolls for my Perception as i was the forward observer.
DM: Alright. So you failed your first perception roll, but you succeeded in your second to hear the click as you step on the mine.
Me: Well damn. Hey Mac (Our demo man) Want to take care of this?
Mac was giddy as he disarmed the mine. This proceeded to happen 4 more times, giving Mac the total of 6 mines. We proceeded down along the path unhindered after those hiccups and came across a makeshift barricade between two apartment buildings. A door was cut into it.
Mac: It would be great if you could plant a mine on the doorstep, then run away.
(The dm makes a secret roll for my Weirdness Magnet.)
DM: Well, there is a door bell. As in a piece of rope attached to a bell.
Alice: We should Play Ding Dong Ditch with the mine.
Me: But we don’t have a bag?
Proceed the 5 minute conversation of how to get a bag, what to use in place, how to get the shit for the burning bag.
Mac: Ok, so we’ll use the sling from the medkit for the bag.
Me: And I’ll squeeze dogmeat like a bagpipe to get the shit out of him.
Mac sneaks up to the door and plants the mine, sets the makeshift bag on fire and rings the bell. After running away the door opens and the raider steps out and see’s the bag.
Raider: “Real Mature guys! Real fucking Mature!” failing his intelligence roll, he stamps down on the trap, and is blown all over the New Vegas Strip. I’m laughing my ass off and so is my character as anothe raider stands in the burning wreckage of the barricade.
Raider2: “What the fuck happened?” (Silence for a few seconds as Mac aims at him with a laser combine.) “Who the fuck is laughing?!“
He then gets shot in the chest twice, setting him on fire. He looks indignant for a second upon being shot, and proceeds to fall over dead. Our 4th player finally arrived at the best possible time as i’m still crying from laughing.
