Changes this Round

Here's a general list of changes for this particular round:

-General carifications on when roles activate and the order of events in each given phase.

-The Spy can activate their ability starting cycle 2, meaning the Spy will have to survive 2 Murder Phases and 1 Voting Phase before getting their first question answered.

-The Priest role has been removed. It really only acted as a safety net for the Spy and led to more confusion than I believe it was worth.

-The intent of these rule changes are to shift game more in favor of the Killer and Lawyer

-I'll be allowing any number of revotes up to the 2 day time limit. The PM with the latest time stamp will be your final vote.

-I'll be sending out a PM to everyone announcing their roles. If you want a second PM claiming you're another role I'll happily oblige. Send me a PM requesting your false role message and I'll send it to you.


This Round's Theme

This round will task its participates with establishing a new home among the barren wasteland. Every cycle during the Voting phase a scenario with multiple choices will be presented to everyone in the game. While voting for execution players should also include which option they would like their struggling band of survivors to take. After voting whichever option received the majority of votes will be the decided course of action for the entire group. Death posts are encouraged (but not required) reflect this decision.

This is SR with a name change

Looks like there was some kind of time warp and posts got devoured. Not many here but lol

Well well well, is it that time again?

Caramel Frappe:
... Wait, what happened to the post i've made earlier? Am I going crazy?

The radiation poisoning has probably started giving you hallucinations. It's fine, these things happen. *Starts talking to a sock on his own hand* Don't they Mr Johnson?

Fat Hippo:

@Caramel Frappe: Don't listen to him. Radiation poisoning a myth. Nothing at all to worry about. DEFINITELY NOT A THING.

But seriously there was apparently some site maintenance yesterday. I didn't realize that myself and actually lost an update to the OP as well. Luckily this is why all my major posts are also saved as a txt file.

Pretty off topic but is anyone else having trouble changing their avatar or have I just forgotten that it keeps blanking like it doesn't know what a picture is whenever I change it?

Whoo we're back! Looking forward to it.

Also... I know it's a little petty, but it would be cool if I could get my name added to the Hall of Murderous Infamy since I won the previous round. I know it was a little stacked in my favor though. Dunno who would go about making that change.

@tastysnack: Wait, who are you? You were Jack O' Ripper, right? Why does everyone keep changing their usernames? First SR now you. Can't keep my lists straight.

gritch:

I am indeed the artist formerly known as Jack, sorry about the whole mess.

But seriously my avatar won't show at all.

The Raw Shark:

Two options:

A - Wait an indefinite amount of time for it too show up

B - Try uploading the avatar from a different device

We can see your avatar by the way. The deal is, whatever device you use won't show your avatar, but everything else will - try logging in on something you don't normally use and see if your avatar appears, if it does, reupload the avatar on that device so it appears on your normal one.

Thanks guys, that did the trick.

Count me in.

As of an hour and a half later, no luck. Sorry Caramel.

Uh, every Avatar I try now (even ones I made / wore before that worked) aren't working ... what's happening.

Showing up now for me.

Is it too late for me to join? Because I want.

Just as a FYI to everyone (I'm not certain how these things work so maybe this is unneeded but I'm going to say it until the game starts just in case :D)

There is a very very very good chance that at multiple points, I will talk about using my banhammer (like "Oh, I'm about to get voted off, be a shame if my banhammer accidentally flew out and hit someone..."). For the love of God, I am always joking when I say anything of that nature :D

Just a heads-up because I guarantee I'm going to make that joke. Hell, I already did it PMing gritch when I asked to join (although I still argue that making me the killer and my murder weapon being the banhammer WOULD make the game much more exciting with higher stakes but for some reason, that idea got shot down) :P

I'm excited for my first game in my many years being on Ze Escapist.

Wow, a few old faces here on the player list I haven't talked to in a while! How's everyone doing?

Fat Hippo:

It's all good in the hood bud. (Jack O' Ripper here)

The Raw Shark:

Damn you people and your fancy name changes! I used mine to remove the ellipses between the "Fat" and the "Hippo".

Query: Why did you change your name to The Raw Shark? Every time I read it I can't help but begin to salivate.

Fat Hippo:

Yeah I was wondering why something felt a bit different about your name as well.

I kinda thought the Jack the Ripper thing was running kind of stale for me after a particularly boring class regarding socio-cultural phenomenons and thought may as well update to something I don't seem to be getting sick of any time soon. So I just lifted a nickname from that one chapter in Watchmen and here we are.

Well I for one am certainly looking forward to a fun adventure of eating mutant rats and roaches!

Roles have been assigned! Check your inboxes! Cycle 1 Begins!

Killer, Medic, and Lawyer may now act.


*Inspects porn magazine* What is this lame-ass vanilla crap? Bah!

Here we go kids!

Vanilla porn! What the hell, did the Apocalypse happen and ruin all the freaky stuff!?!?

*looks outside

...oh, right. The world did end and I just heard a horror movie "go investigate it and you probably won't be murdered in a gruesome way" noise.

I'd be willing to bet that most of the people who were able to survive an apocalypse event would be into the freakiest stuff. Bring on the leather boyscout uniforms and animal heads. One post and this scenario is already losing authenticity *tsk tsk*

Caramel Frappe:
Was going to post a Mass Effect: Andromeda GIF to express how I felt about the match starting until I came across this.

I think Caramel needs to die just for posting this

Six months previously.
(A portal opens)
A figure steps out, a giant Triceratops with a rocket launcher on its back and it's Flesh rotting. "Good thing I managed to fix my teleportation technology before stupid snake lich bitch found out about my plans." It said with a smirk "Now I can finally be alo..." He then looked around noticing everyone that was looking at him "You must be here to escape the fallout."

"...FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!"

And That's the story of how I've been trapped here for six months And the worst part THIS FUCKER doesn't appreciate my awesome "what's up" joke. But as long as this doesn't turn it into another serial killer plot I think I'll be fine. I just have to wait for my teleportation technology to finish recharging. Just a little bit more time.

Is that an actual line from the game? even if it's paraphrasing a line I think that just gave me a tumor.

Blinking into the blinding sunlight of the surface world you had only ever dreamed of, in the distance you see the outline of a giant humanoid figure making it's way towards you.

A new challenger appears!

image

It's a giant freakin' robot!

Loudspeakers blaring it yells the following:

Viral Wolf:

"Humans....

There are two things you should know:

First, any human on the surface will be completely annihilated by our Human Eradication Army.

Second, oh. You're already killing each other. Never mind. Carry on."

And with that the giant robot trudges off through the bleak wasteland back to wherever it came from.

Lettuce execute the giant robot

Oh good, looks like Frappe has brought all the weird porn into the post-apocalypse then. The day is saved.

So does nobody want this other porn? It seems I mispacked my bag and let me tell you, fellas, it's been a rough 6 months.
