Er, not every name listed above is a publicly displayed name, I think. Could someone clear up discrepancies please?

To clarify, although I've been allowing exchanges of coins without a confirmation from *both* player, this differs from item/artifacts gifts/trades. This is, of course, to avoid players playing hot potato games with them.

We pretty much figured it all out. I would have contacted you, verifying what items you need. Offered them to you, you would have accepted. There may have been a little wait because of the two trade limit, but the end of the game was pretty much assured.

I mean you can call me a jerk, and maybe it's just pent up aggression after that last game, but I was fully intending to Rod of Alacrity the blademaster into your face. It's your first game, you aren't allowed to win yet! tongue

 

Great job moderating Marlenny.

 

I want to know how Duck died, haha. And who was responsible for killing gladwell? I was about to do it to avenge Sleeping Dragon.

Duck died because despite having Skribbanne in his inventory for most of the hours of Day 2, he failed to consume it by day 3.

Apologies to all of my victims, and especially Nioca. One of these days, I'll stop stabbing you in the back. tongue

Good game everyone.

 

I'd just like to say that the Gladwell Alliance was royally screwed from the on-set. It wasn't anything Marlenny did, she did fine, nor was there any actual physical disadvantage. It's just that there was some really bad mojo following us around from Day 1. It was like Murphy's Law as it applied to Northern Isles; every time we made a step forward, something came along that set us back five steps. It's almost funny how badly everything went for us.

Wow...that was a quick game. Is this the first time that all three DLs have won?

 

In case anyone was wondering, the 5 names I received at the beginning of the game were:

Stareye

Thuryl

Sporefrog

Omlette

w-dueck

Oh, and I had a trade agreement with *i too!

 

Good game everyone.

 

EDIT: Out of curiosity, who tried to kill me at the beginning of the game?

I tried to kill you with bandits, but you were apparently protected by the mystic symbol.

This was extremely fun to Moderate (special thanks to Sporefrog for keeping me up to date on what he and the DLs were doing), but so extremely hard at times.

 

I made a handful of mistakes, from reporting Sleeping Dragon's death right away instead of waiting the 24 hours, to forgetting to edit out people's items, to other not so innocent things tongue , but thankfully it wasn't anything that broke the game nor gave someone an advantage over others. My advice to anyone thinking about Moderating is to read and re-read everything several times and try and decide what all the vague things will mean and make a clear post about it. And don't attempt this without talking to Stareye a billion times before hand. Perhaps have a quick game on your own to see what it'd be like.

 

I also think it is in the player's best interest to not have their trades/actions being processed so quickly, but it was certainly interesting to watch tongue

Nope, the Balm he crafted was what saved him.

Gladwell's alliance failed mostly due to Paranoia. Had Wz. As not send Duck to kill Sleeping Dragon and instead killed the Micklebur, he would've won. He could have simply forced the Adventurer to join him. Once this was accomplished, Wz. As was set to go.
