Northern Isles Game 4

Recommended Posts

Thank you everyone for agreeing to play and watch. Here are the ground rules. Only the moderator (me) and people who are playing the game and are alive may post here. Anything else will be instantly deleted.

 

The current living players are:

 

Andraste

Ash Lael

BainIhrno

Creator

Dikiyoba

Doom Warrior

Excalibur

Imban

Nioca

PGLB

RCCCL

Sarachim

Sporefrog

Marlenny

Wz As

Xelgion

 

Some ground rules:

 

1) If you are playing PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES. They have been updated since the last game.

2) Private communication is allowed.

3) Submit your actions to me by way of PM in the thread I started with you. If I cannot figure out what you want to do, I'll simply ignore it, so try to be clear.

4) Actions will be processed in the order they were received when I get around to them. Read the rules for how often you can submit and any other exceptions.

5) Please posts all rules questions in your PM with me or in the rules topics.

6) If you are not playing or dead, please do not influence the game. You may look, but not touch.

 

Otherwise, the game begins:

 

Monday, April 13 at 10 PM EDT

 

No action submissions will be accepted before that. A few people tried to submit some things, and those posts will be ignored. In other words, submit again after the game starts. I'm doing this not to be a jerk, but to make sure everyone gets a fair chance at getting their post in. I'm sorry if you are busy at the start time, but it is impossible choose a start time that works for everyone.

 

Also, if you have not done so already, reply to my PM topic with you as soon as you can. If you do not within 24 hours of me sending it to you, you may be replaced.

 

Just a reminder, no actions that kill anyone will be processed until:

 

Tuesday, April 14 at 10 PM EDT

 

Also, the game will end at the latest on:

 

Monday, April 20 at 10 PM EDT

As far as I'm aware, it's okay to start your PMing now. Stareye implied it's fine somewhere, and he didn't object to it last round...

You may start strategizing now. You may not submit any actions until I officially start the game. If you do, I will simply ignore them. If I happen to be in a helpful mood, I might even tell you that you need to submit it again. smile

 

I got a couple questions on the known enemy lists. Hopefully this will clear what those imply.

 

The most important thing to realize is the known enemy lists are hypothetical tool to help out players. They are based solely on comparing victory conditions, and should not be taken to imply that said roles exist in the game.

 

While anyone on your list is definitely your enemy, the list is not necessarily complete. A few roles (such as the Darkside Loyalists) have hidden targets. If you are a target for one of the roles, you will appear on their list, but that person not on yours. If it were, there would be no point to secret targets. Further, people on your enemy list do not necessarily need to be killed (or to kill you) to achieve your victory condition. They are assembled quite broadly to keep as many options open to victory as possible.

 

When someone makes an attack, I use the actual enemy list, which is secret to everyone except me, to decide the battle flow. This may or may not match your known enemy list.

 

Also, another point about enemies relates to artifacts. If someone currently has an artifact you need as part of your victory condition, you are enemies. You have motive to kill them to get the artifact, and they have motive to kill you first to prevent you from getting it. To clarify, someone simply having need for a similar artifact does not automatically make you enemies. The person must actually possess it.

Hey Creator, I'm getting a message about you being over a topic limit or something. Is your inbox full?

This is a common quirk of the UBB PM system. If you type someone's name in, you need to spell their current display name EXACTLY right. If you do not, it gives that weird message as opposed to a more intuitive error.

It's easier to open up the person's profile and click "Send a Private Message" since it always spells it right. smile

Public Service Announcement: A few people still have not gotten back to me. If you do not respond within the next few hours, I will replace you. It is not fair to all of the other people who agreed to participate.

 

Otherwise, best of luck to everyone.

 

Round 4 begins! smile

That's just because Ash Lael didn't bifurcate from The Creator until a good few years after they joined the community. tongue

In case anyone was wondering, messaging someone telling them that I am Vahkos and am going to kill them doesn't sound like a very sustainable strategy for playing as Vahkos.

It could be a double fake! That's just the sort of treachery that'd be perpetrated by Vahkos! wink

No shots fired? A bit of a surprise... usually one or two people take a swing when killing becomes available.

 

Or maybe Stareye's just making us sweat...

I would be an absolute fool if I broadcast the answers to those questions.
