Just an FYI for everyone..

I am getting shoulder surgery on 6/8, so if the game continues until then and I drop off for a day or so, that's why.


Also, is Ricks power daily or a one shot?

If I'm in, I'll be out of town 6/14-17. Game might be over by then (or I'll be dead) the way things have been going lately. When is the start?

Yep, have to get enough sleep to run morning sessions of Paranoia RPG.

I'm in, but there's no way I'm staying online again waiting for RMC to show up again at the last minute instead of going to take a piss.

Hi Newcastle,

I'm sorry, but I am going to have to support my man Unagi here and ask that Tru1cy not play. He is almost as bad as Kenetickid. Almost. His lack of play in the last 2 games were epically bad though. I totally understand real life getting in the way of playing a game, but I also think a little effort needs to be required every now and then. If nothing else than for the integrity of the game itself and courtesy to the people you are playing with.

Just my 2 cents.

re: Truicy,

I sympathize with those who decry his participation, I also do wish he'd talk more. The game is a lot more pleasant when everyone is participating and we aren't hanging around waiting on folks. I do think he was a drag last game because we were wondering where he was and part of me was thinking that he could have been a special due to the delay in posting. I think it helps the game's health overall with folks participation regularly (real life excuses understood of course).

I also believe in giving people a 3rd, 4th, 5th, etc...chance. What I am hoping....is that perhaps if truicy is interested it could come with the caveat that he noticeably increases his participation...say minimum of 5-10 substantial posts per game day.. more than saying "hi" and a lot less than a deep analysis.

I would hope he acknowledges that and states that explicitly. Then of course follow's through. Under that circumstance I'd be open to letting him play, but would also be willing to listen to what folks have to say.

Does that sound like a fair compromise Unagi & BB? That is of course should we cross that bridge since he has not signed up yet.

Am very much willing to listen to what folks are saying. I am not sure how else to navigate this. Since he hasn't signed up; though I am sure he has seen this.

When I send out PM's I will refrain from including him though.

Does that work?

I don't even mind the "Hi" posts that demonstrate players are reading or following the game. The biggest trouble is when people actively don't post. They post here or other forums but not in the game thread. It makes it look as though they are ignoring the game which ruins it for everyone else. We always talk about killing the silent but never do it because it doesn't seem to aid the village side in finding wolves and yet in the end it becomes harder to get a village vote done because we end up needing their numbers. I think the silent method is a crap way to play for both sides. If you don't want to actively play then don't play, imo. Past tru1cy has been quiet. Last few he has been silent. Huge difference. Grundbegriff is bordering the same territory recently.

Is there any objection to the rule set? Please go through it and poke any errors or problems with it.

I haven't read the rules, but I can play with the caveat that I'm on vacation from 6/21-6/28 and I'm not sure of the wifi situation. It's possible I will have the chance to be extra wordy with nothing but time on my hands or it's equally possible I'll go silent for the full week.

Ya know I am gonna add a line to the rules since we have so many vacationers playing. Just if you are one of those, let folks know prior to enjoying whatever it is...be it goat cheese, skydiving, or hugging 6ft tall rodents with your progeny.

Thanks all for joining.

updated the rules portion. any comments? if something seems unbalanced please let me know and will work to create a good balance.

Rules explained/FAQ /Minutiae
-TDog’s protection extends even if Tdog dies at night.
The seers are a bit different:
Shane (infected seer) will only learn if they are a normal survivor or special survivor
Carl (Survivor seer) will only learn survivor role or wolf alignment
- forums will be set up for wolves & Masons
-no edits
- Time limits. First day will be 14 days. Weekends count as 1 day. Willing to be flexible.
-start on a day cycle
-if traitor recruited is a survivor special, loses role when switching (ie loses shot, scan, protection)
-if seer scans the traitor prior being turned, seer will be told that that person has been turned.
-Traitor MUST be recruited by end of night 2. Use it or lose it.
-The infected recruit power is viewed as a global power and not resided in 1 infected.
-Infected traitor will get results of scan on night they were converted. (if applicable).
-If infected try to recruit Tdog's his day protection extension is nullified if recruited. Night protection still stands
-Multiple folks going on vacation, just give a heads up when you're slated to go and approximated when we can expect you back.

I would definitely consider it differently if Tru1cy came on here, apologized, and then promised to do better. I just don't see him caring enough to do that. Just so we are clear, I'm not mad at him. This is a game and I am sure the things he is doing is more important to him. I just don't think it is fair to the rest of the players to have a game where he agreed to participate and not even show up for a week plus at a time. It screws with the game mechanics too much.

Lagom...hmm how to put this delicately. Truicy has a history of being quiet. Agreed? This last game he disappeared for a good week hamstringing the rest of us who were playing. As far as folks could tell he was ignoring the thread. This is not the first time this has happened. His uniquely low level of participation hurts the game play. If we could get it bumped up some more, i think we'd all welcome him.

Thanks for dropping by! Maybe next time. :D

It would be more productive if you engaged in the discussion instead.

IMO Unagi is being a little harsh, but the concern he's raising (people joining but not actually participating) is a real concern. I think tru1cy's been fine in general, but he did essentially drop off the face of the earth in the last game. I do think it should be discussed more before we get to the "I won't play with so-and-so" stage, though.

I very much like what Remus and bb2112 have said on this topic. Wish those were my words.

What is it that I said that was harsh, El G?

If he signs up for this game (or any other that I sign up for) I respectfully "UN-Sign Up" for it.
I super apologize for any crunchi-ness this proprieties , but I'm done playing with people that religiously don't play.

D. O. N. E. done.
Ah this.

Yeah. whatever, I stand by it. I'm just totally tired of watching 13/14 people basically play (with various levels of involvement) and yet tru1cy continues to constantly sign up and then just ignore the game entirely. It's not in the spirit of these games AT ALL, and well - sorry, I honestly think I'm doing "The Game" a favor by being the resident "dick" about this, I guess. So enjoy your "IMO Unagi is being a little harsh, but the concern he's raising (people joining but not actually participating) is a real concern". The 'real concern' needs to be dealt with, IMO.

LL the problem stemmed from tru1cy not even logging on at OO for over a week (almost 2 weeks) so he was not even participating in silence but he was active at Gaming Trends. It created a problem when I was modding the game, That last day I kept delaying because I didn't want him establishing his innocence by not even logging on at OO but eventually I had to move on. I want tru1cy to play but at least give us a warning if something is up and you may not be as active.

I don't really see it as harsh. IMO, your passion on the topic just shows how much you care. You are committing your time and effort to a game that is supposed to be played by all of us. When one falls down on their commitment once you can look at it and say something came up or they may be having a rough time. When one falls down on his commitment consistently, it does take away from the enjoyment of all. I'm good with it. :D
