This is a crafting game I've been throwing around for a while now, but I think I should try and post it now or it'll keep bugging me, lol. Dark Constructs is based off an old RPG I used to have, Crafters Legacy, in which you find yourself on a shattered planet and must build stuff to survive. This is simply that, plus whole bunch more.
------------------------------------------------------------
You wake up on a small planetoid somewhere. You can remember some things about yourself, but how you got on that planetoid is confusing you, until the memories hit you hard...Large comet...impact...planet shatters...and then blank. You look around at your new home, and notice off in the distance that there are a few other planetoids like yours. The sun seems to have disappeared, so you going to have to build in a darkness. Better start on your dark constucts sooner, rather than later...

Equipment: (backpacks, armor, etc, it's simply what you wear)

Inventory: [Anything that you collect/make that doesn't go anywhere else goes here] (0/10)
Supplies: [anything you have that is craftable] (0/10)

You will gain more types of crafts when they arise

You stand up and look around your planetoid some more. You see a bunch of trees over to one side, and what's left of a mountain behind you. You hear a couple strange noises from nearby. If your going to build, you better do it quickly...

(Equipment is left blank until you make some, lol, but don't worry, your not running around naked, xD)

You do so. Right where you just were, a strange creature walks up and sniffs the ground. It looks like a large scorpion, but instead of a scorpion face, it looks like 3 dog heads were welded on. It sniffs some more, but then scurries off. what now?

The three dog heads of the first picture, and the (photoshopped) size and body of the scorpion in the second is what you saw on the creature

((Dees sounds nice. Also, when you say part of a mountain...))

I go behind a tree quickly, and try to sharpen the edge of my axe as fast as possible, ready to fight anything out there.

I cut steps on the largest tree with the axe, so i can climb it easier, and look around from higher ground.

There is no equipment until you make some. And you need to craft a sharpening stone before you can buff your tools. So...What are you going to do?

No equipment until you make some. And none of the trees are large enough to do so, but you could try shimmying up one. What do you do?

You do so. You eventually run out of the forest, and are met by a mountain side. There is a cave some ways up on the mountain. What do you do?

I try to shinny up the tree. Or climb if there are branches.

I listen to hear any sounds from the cave, if there aren't any, I will enter.

(by the way, what's the time is in the game?)

(late morning-ish, or do you mean like the age, or something?)

The only sounds from the cave you hear are the occasional drips of water. What now?

((*Sticks tongue out*))

I'll read my axe while hiding behind the tree, peeking out to see what the rustling is.

You do so. Although you don't see anything, that doesn't mean whatever made the noise is far off. What do you do now?

You do so. You can't see very far in the cave. As you go into the cave, you hear a strange groaning sound, as if there's a metal construction somewhere that is older than dirt. What do you do?

I will observe and wait a second more before heading out towards the rustling that took place, being more cautious as I get closer to it.
