I imagine they just amble around, not really going after anyone or anything. Maybe they'll be hostile towards anyone showing up in their patch of the Spooky Forest, but that could depend on the overall malevolence of their masters.
If there are ghouls/zombies, maybe they'll go feral and start hunting people to eat, but I still don't understand why something that's dead needs to eat. A wood full of feral ghouls might be kind of creepy and a good setting for a side-adventure.

They immediately swarm into formation and dance-walk to an open area where they can perform large-scale choreographed movements. A core of skeletons form up in the centre and connect their bodies to make a raised platform while the main host spins, dances, circles and chants around it. After their requisite song and dance number, they clear a path for the intelligent undead to make their way to the platform, where the new warchief will be decided by danceoff and/or rap battle

As you advance on the gawping slave, fire dancing at your fingertips, Mortia emerges from a door to your left. You couldn't have timed it better if you'd planned it. She's dressed in elaborate robes dyed a rich blue and trimmed with gold thread. Silver beads sewn into the fabric glitter at her neckline, drawing attention to a enormous ruby sitting at her throat. The dress is composed of three or four layers of silk, accompanied by a thin veil which does little to actually hide her face but is covered in a floral patterning. The clothes she's wearing probably... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
As soon as he's out of earshot Profectus starts laughing, which prompts Darzi to cease pretending to be a corpse. She stands up, adjusting her clothes where Ricky's tentacles had set them askew. “That went well.” She casually remarks. “I'm surprised he didn't scream though.”
You shrug your shoulders, watching the doorway through which Mortia and the slave left. The festivities seem to be dying down, at least the music's stopped. “I think he was trying to.

Changing the subject, you decide to find out a little more about this ceremony. “So before we decided to mentally scar that arrogant little bastard for the rest of his life, what was he saying about the ceremony? What's all this going to entail?”
Fulvia speaks up, summarizing what they were told in a dull monotone. “Zaahir is to call for a momentary halt to the celebration at which point he will name both you and Mortia to come stand before him.

Information: Daikon's mission to Planet Echa nearly ended in disaster on multiple occasions. He and his team nearly perished, and none escaped without injury. However, Daikon not only managed to conquer the world, but he convinced its surviving people to pledge allegiance to Frieza, and provide the galactic overlord with technological wonders. In addition, he secured a battle enhancing drug for the Saiyans, which he delivered in secret to the Saiyan scientist Kamatsuna. Now, he has been summoned by Lord Frieza himself.

Your name is Takashi Wakui. You are a sixteen-year old, Japanese high school student living in a world where half of humanity possesses Personas—manifestations of inner souls as demons, spirits or deities. In the past, you had been one of the unlucky ordinaries lacking a Persona. Then a game called AETHER was forcibly installed on your smartphone. Initially it appeared to be little more than a piece of nasty spyware, extremely persistent and impossible to remove.

Today didn’t start out so well. You woke up to the shrill beeps of traffic and the rabble of the city, with a pounding ache in the base of your skull and stiffness in your arms. The pair in the Velvet Room had struck again. Whenever they cared to ‘converse’ with you, you always woke up feeling like a tank had just ran over you. That’s not even getting into what they did a few weeks ago. The blood spewing from our mouth, along with the searing pain in your heart, had been all too real.

>[MAX PRIORITY] On 6-May-2129 at 8:00 am, the corpse of Fumika Shibuya will be found in the Grey Ward of Akumachi City. Her mutilated limbs and torso will be strewn around a local scrapyard. Analysis will reveal signs of intense mechanical augmentation, far beyond the limit of what humans can tolerate. Further inspection by the other Players will reveal she has been murdered by the Denizens residing in Sector 3 of the Blackened Void—Area 019. 9 days, 0 hours, 30 minutes and 0 seconds remaining.

The sharp crack of a finger snapping drags you back to reality. Shizuka is staring from across from the table, frowning and arms crossed. “What’s with you, today?” she asks, “You’re making me worried.”
You raise your head and blink. Upon seeing the concern etched on your older sister’s expression, you give her a smile. It is awkward and feeble, but you try nonetheless. “It’s nothing, nee-san. I’m perfectly fine today.”
“For a boy who says those words, you don’t look the part, Takashi.” Shizuka replies. Her eyelids raise by the tiniest of fractions. A hint of jade peeks out. You breath catches in your throat. If Shizuka fully opens her eyes…well, you don’t want to think about it. At all. “I saw your mood flicker between rage, misery, confusion and acceptance. That’s more like what Daisuke typically feels at the bar on a Saturday night. Something is up, I know it.”
“I’m really am okay, nee-san! Honest!” You blurt out. Shizuka remains impassive. You smile falters an inch. “Look, I did receive a message from my friend. Except it wasn’t Celeste.”
“Who, then?” Shizuka asks.
“Takauji! You know, the guy I meet up with in martial arts club. I trained with him yesterday. He showed me how to dodge. He’s a secretly a fan of really depressing stories and showed me this clip from a movie he watched. It’s, uh, about a pair of star-crossed lovers, one awakened and the other not. It’s when the boy tries to use his magic to save the ordinary girl, but his family drags him off. It’s really emotional, nee-san!”
For clarification, you don’t know if such a movie exists. It probably does, though. Some hack director or two has likely taken hold of such a generic idea in the eighty or so years of magic’s history. You also don’t know if Takauji has tastes for those kinds of movies. He’s the kind of guy who would enjoy reading shonen manga or watching action flicks instead.

>>43742806 I don't have time to tell more specific stories now, but our best game started with this pitch:
Players would develop characters from the Hero level to the Demigod level in Chicago during the time period between WWI and WWII. This period would be split into five different stories, each about five sessions, and each separated by a 4-5 year time-jump. During each time-jump, the characters would automatically increase by one Legend rating and their player could describe at least one major event that occured... Comment too long.

How does this make sense? Tying knots, playing an instrument, and picking locks are skills. They determine what a character can do or give some bonus. But any non-mute character in a role-playing game can talk (since it's a human being playing a role), so why are these "skills" with associated "skill checks" in so many systems?
