SPIDERS II: Electric Boogalo (the search for Curly's gold)
« on: October 06, 2010, 04:50:05 pm »
LOL RULES LOL

There will be three Spiders.  They will be known collectively as The Spider.  Two of the Spiders will know each other, one will not know either.  Each round ("round" is defined later), one of the Spiders will choose a Citizen to subsume.  If subsumed, the Citizen is out of the game and will sit on the couch to watch Jersey Shore reruns.  They can post in the thread, but please refrain from excessive speculation or act as if nothing happened.

There will be initially two Discordians.  They will not know each other, and no one else will know who they are.  Every round, one Discordian can evangelize a Citizen.  There will be a 50% chance that the Citizen will convert and become a Discordian.  The new Discordian will know who converted him.  If not converted, the Citizen will not know who the Discordian is.

If a Spider tries to subsume a Discordian, there will be a 50% chance they will not succeed.   If a Discordian is not subsumed, they will be given two names.  One will be the Spider that attacked him, and one will be another player.  They will not know which is which.

If a Discordian tries to evangelize a Spider, there will be a 50% chance they will be subsumed.  If they are not, they will not know they escaped a Spider.

If a Discordian tries to convert another Discordian they did not convert themselves, they will create a CABAL.  The CABAL has a 100% chance of converting a Citizen, who will then be part of that CABAL.  It will be up to the CABAL if they want to make it public. The CABAL will be broken if all but one of the members are subsumed or Put On A Bus.

If a Spider tries to subsume one of the other Spiders, they will begin to create The Machine™.  All three Spiders must be subsumed in order to create The Machine™.  Once created, The Machine™ has a 100% chance of crushing both Citizens and Discordians, but only a 50% chance if the Discordian is part of a CABAL.  If The Machine™ has not been created, the Spider still has a 50% chance of subsuming a Cabal member.  Once created, The Machine™ will continue to exist, even if one of the Spiders is Put On A Bus (see below).

Every round, the Citizens will discuss and choose a fellow Citizen to Put On A Bus, where they will be forced to surf TVTropes.com for the remainder of the game, and can not participate.  A simple majority will choose who to Put On A Bus.  If no simple majority is reached, then no one gets Put On A Bus that round.  Citizens who are put on a bus can still post in the thread, but please don't act like you weren't just kicked off by a bunch of paranoid freaks.

With that in mind, if a player who has been subsumed or kicked off has a funny or clever idea of how to communicate with the rest of the Citizens (see: Cudgel's radio transmission in the last game), PM me about it, and I'll see if it can work in the game.  The idea is that if you try to creatively contribute, it will make the game more interesting.

A Round will be defined as the length of time it takes for EVERYONE playing the game to make a post.  The game will not continue until everyone has posted in that round.  If a player hasn't been contributing to the thread very much (i.e. consisting mainly of "this is a post" or "I vote ___"), I may not wait for them to post before moving on.  This will be decided on a case by case basis.

Depending on how the game is going, there may or may not be clues in the various narratives as to the identities of the Discordian and the Spider.

The game is over when either all the Spiders have been Put On A Bus, or all Citizens have been Subsumed.

If all Citizens are Discordians at the end of the game, and all Spiders have been Put On A Bus, then the game ends with REVOLUTION.

To Recap:
-At the beginning of the game, no one will know who the Discordians are, even to each other. 
-Only two of the three Spiders will know each other.
-A converted Discordian will only know who converted them. 
-Each round, there will be a vote for who gets Put On A Bus. 
-A Discordian has a chance of not being subsumed by a Spider.
-A Discordian has a chance of converting a Citizen into a Discordian.
-A Discordian can create a CABAL by converting a Discordian.
-A Spider can create The Machine™ by subsuming all three Spiders.
-A round is not over until all eligible players have made a post.
-If you're subsumed or Put On A Bus, please act like it.

MOTHERFUCKING SPIDERS, MOTHERFUCKER.

They're everywhere.  They're in your cereal.  They're hiding behind billboards, they're dressed as cops, they look like you mother.  They're real as shit, and they're gonna get you.  They're gonna turn whatever you call a life and turn it into a shell of an existence, a mockery of color and spark.

What you gonna do?  You gonna run away and hide yourself from living?  Then they've already won.  They're planning, I tell you.  Waiting for you to slip up, to forget what's important.  They want you to stop caring, they want you to be like everyone else, they want you to not make so much noise, they want you to stop remembering.

They will find you.  They will spin their webs.  They will trap you.  They will make it all go away.

_____________________________________________________

You know there's something wrong.  You know that you have to fight.  You know you have to convince the others.  And you know, somewhere out there, there's someone who thinks the same way you do.  Oliver put on his hat.  He had to go find the other.

OFUK GAME ON!



-Assuming In Character- So.... Anyone see any good movies recently?
If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in

Posting ITT.

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, shattered underpance lies,
With blown elastic, and exploded back,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Doktor Howl, Spag of Spags:
Look on my ass, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

I'm going to be very busy for the next 3 days on a project at work.  If for some reason I don't check in, please feel free to continue the round without me (ie, don't let me keep the whole crowd waiting).

If we are supposed to post in character, it might be helpful if we were given a context.  like a setting, and such....
otherwise, it would seem a bit disjointed and floating, no?

I'm in a bar, and it's night time.  And I manage to find this boring.

Yeah, sounds like me.  :lol:
