didn't submit your classes in time. You tried to get
into the Advanced Quantum Entanglement class (you did
name your cat Spooky Action after all) but amazingly, it
was filled. Great. Now what are you going to take.
You look down list of available classes and it's pretty
ominous. Go ahead and turn the page past the physical
education classes. There will be no getting tied up to
the school mascot this year, Thank you very much. Wait
a minute! Underwater RC submersibles. Oh crap! It
just filled up..most likely one of your friends stole
the last spot. Hmmm...here's wood shop. How bad can
that be. They will have tools and when the teacher's
not looking, you can finally refine the robotic chassis
you've been working on. Yes. Wood shop should be
fine. First day of class arrives and you take your
seat. Immediately, your realize this is a grave mistake
for any self-respecting geek. You look around an
realize that most of the students are sporting heavy
metal black t-shirts and have assorted body piercings.
They're all discussing whether they'll make a Fender
replica or go the Gibson route. What are those???
You've awoken in geek hell as you feel your
technological prowess slowly seep out your ears.
wanted our Fantasy Geek game to reflect this sudden
change of fortune with the Wood Shop trap. When you
apply the Wood Shop trap to a player on your opponent's
team, they will feel an immediate hit of 4 points to
their Techmology category for a single player. 4 points
is a big deal on an average baseline score of 3-10 for
any given player in any given category so this trap goes
along way to taking the Techmology category. The person
who receives this ill-gotten gift from you will see that
you're the sender. If they had already applied a
protection Perk such as Wrist Watch Calculator (has to
be applied to same player in advance of trap), the Wood
Shop trap will have no effect. If they applied an Alien
Tech perk, their score will be partially protected from
the boost of that perk. They could also apply a Cloned!
reversal perk to send the Wood Shop trap back at you.
Oh, the options are vast and the retribution swift in
the geek game of perks and traps. We'll let you decide
which way to go.
Wood Shop trap will last through the end of the week
(end of play) and will figure into the final weekly
tally to see who wins the week. All perks and traps
will reset and be removed from players when entering
into the next week of play. The traps such as Wood Shop
will be viewable on the main geek battle grid for all to
see so don't think your attacks will go down
anonymously. The picture for the Wood Shop trap is that
of a giant chain saw on a pure white background.
Granted, you're probably not going to find a chain saw
in a standard wood shop class and if you do, run for the
door! It's a horror movie in the making. The lore of
the Wood Shop trap is this:
your classes wisely. Some classes might just reduce the
brainy technolical prowess you've been cultivating all
these years. Then, what are you left with? Don't
answer looks because that's a dead end.
