Thanks for posting Figg!
I should point something out though.
Although it is perfectly acceptable to react to other people's actions from that same round (I mean if you see their posts above your own in the thread) the actual outcome of their actions will not be decided until the current round is over.
Therefore, Bungo may not even succeed in making a sling, and Azriel never said anything about burning the sling he might have made, only creating fire that would be capable of burning it.

I'll update tomorrow, or in 10 hours or so. Feel free to change your action if you like. Although conjuring a deckchair out of mid air with cocktails would be a perfectly fine action as well.

Liberals Vs. Purists: Round one
Bungobaggins: Craft a sling by fashioning the long grass into rope
[3] You manage to braid some long grass together, but cannot manage to make a sling out of them. You are left with several knotty lengths of grass-rope.

Azriel: Create fire to burn sling
[6] Rubbing sticks together vigorously works excellently, but you somehow manage to set yourself aflame from the intense friction. Your hat is on fire!

Pettytyrant: Construct Distillery
[1] You feel a driving urge to produce alcohol. However, after rummaging about in your sporran, all you end up with is an empty bottle of Buckie and a distressingly sober outlook on life.

Mrs. Figg: Conjure a deckchair complete with martini drink-holders.
[1] So complete is your faith in your conjuring powers (having read Harry Potter many times) that you sit back onto the chair you thought you just conjured, but your bustle finds nothing but thin air! You plop painfully down on the hard ground.

Round 1:

Sign me up for the liberals Very Happy (No amount of Scottish crabbit will ever make me change my mind about the LotR trilogy Nod )

Done.  Smile  (I put you into the game-overview on the first and second page).
I'll just plop in your stick-man in Round Two.

It is a free-form (no real rules apart from one or two, kind of like Forumshire!) forum game. The idea is that the moderator (me so far) puts up a scenario and anyone who wishes to join asks. In this case I drew a picture of a landscape. Anyone who wants to play spawns as a stick-man. They then post an action, which I roll a die for (die, as in a single dice). If they get a low number the action fails horribly, if they get a higher number it succeeds (basically).
I describe and draw (poorly) what has happened, and they react in the next round to what has taken place.
It's basically a turn-based role-playing computer game, but instead of using a computer, we use a moderator. I take the inputs from the players and display what happens. I've never tried it before, but I think it'd probably be a lot of fun. I'm having a great time moderating so far anyway. Although I get a little impatient sometimes.
If only people would post their actions in a timely manner!  Mad

Damn it no alcohol?!  Mad 
Right time for a rammy instead then  Twisted Evil 

Smash the end off the bottle to make a sharp weapon- any broken shards of glass get Bungo (he is on my team isn't he?) to use his grass string to bind it to a stick to make a spear.

On the plus side I looked up "rammy" and now know what that means.

I have read everything and have no idea what's going on, though it sure is entertaining for all that...  Very Happy 

It being a game - you'll need at least one fan... so I'm rooting for the Purists!  cyclops

Of course, if the Purists play badly, I will - like all loyal true fans - criticise them more than I would every criticise the other team, who of course, don't matter {{{and stink like skunks anyway! Mad}}}

Purist Purist Purist... ooy!  cheers
