Title: SPIDERS: It's not a game.
Post by: LMNO on September 21, 2010, 12:57:23 pm
The players:
BDS
Cudgel
Dok Howl
Dr James Semaj
Eater of Clowns
Frederieke van Noodleberg
Iptuous
Joh'Nyx
Mistress Freeky
phoenixofdiscordia
Remington
Requia
Rumckle
Sigmatic
Storebrand
That Green Gentleman
Triple Zero
  

The rules:
-Each round, everyone in the game must post before the vote can be taken.  A majority vote will kick one person out of the game.  
-Each round, a Spider will attack someone.  If they succeed, that person is out of the game.  
-Each round, a Discordian will choose someone to convert. If they succeed, that person becomes a Discordian.

Game ends when either the Spiders are defeated, or they subsume everyone.  There are finer points, but I will go over them when and if the situation occurs.

Morning breaks in The City… Not so much a break as a slow tear in the night's hold, the sun like a wet yellow marble pushing through tissue paper in an overcast sky.  The bleak, uncomfortable angles of various half-used skyscrapers line the horizon like an orthodontist's night mare.  The City wakes up.

A pall has fallen over the citizens of The City.  There is a quiet dread on their doorsteps.  Somewhere in the night, or perhaps in an accumulation of a lifetime of nights, the citizens had lost something.  Life had become a flat, two-dimensional representation of respiration, punctuated by trips to the coffee machine.  Most of the citizens had a distant memory of when The City was young, before the bright colors in the streets faded and chipped to become miasmic hieroglyphs. 

It was almost time.  The Spider opened its six eyes and looked over The City as the morning commute began.  The ground had been set over an eternity of apathy and escapism, and would soon yield its fertile fruits.  Tomorrow… Yes, tomorrow The Spider would cast its web over the fractured landscape of The City and begin its feast.  It could sense the coming of The Machine™.  It could feel the inexorable power.  The inevitability.

Somewhere in the monotony, a mind awoke.  A flash of insight, a playful grin, and a plan.  A way to get back to the before, and a way forward into something new.  Something bad was approaching, but it was important to know that it could be stopped.  It was time to go out there, and make a difference.  It was time to tell the others.

The Citizens held a town hall meeting.  In their hearts, they knew that something in The City meant them harm, but they didn't know what to do about it.  How do you deal with a formless, nameless, intangible threat?  Eventually, it was agreed that the only thing that could be done was to find out who is most responsible for the heavy, morose weight that has befallen The City.

_________________________________________________ _____________________________________


Round 1 has begun.  Every player must make one post before a vote can be held.  The soonest the next round will begin is in 24 hours.

Fuck me, I'm going to get either subsumed, in the hopes that I'm ACTUALLY a spider and so make a machine, or shipped off on the bus, aren't I? Goddammit, and this game was already more promising than the last one. :sad:

Yep, calling it now. Iptuous and/or Cudgel is a spider.

You guys should listen to me. I'm not a spider, or even the discordian. That would have been cool, though.
Title: Re: SPIDERS: It's not a game.
Post by: Jasper on September 21, 2010, 08:03:19 pm
Hmm.

I keep getting the urge to be clever and try to be a higher level player than the others, but I am not so smart so I won't go making guesses just yet.  

Freeky, it's alright.  First round is always a guessing game*, and the talkiest people are naturally the most suspect.  Pointing fingers this early on is meaningless.  

Going by what I know of game theory, I think out best option at this point is to just talk and think, and leave guesses until later in the round.


*ETA: More of one than usual, rather.

For reasons not fully understood, the citizens found themselves gathered in a Starbucks.  Faint traces of Joni Mitchell floated in the air, barely at the verge of audibility.  A voice spoke up.  "So, whose fault is it, anyway?"

A dozen eyes flashed and glared.  Citizens started calling out names at random, perhaps due to past arguments, or petty grievances.  You could feel the paranoia steadily growing as wild accusations flew about, followed by threats and recriminations.  Fingers clenched around travel mugs, assessing them as potential weapons.  This was going to get ugly.

"Hold on, hold ON," someone in the group shouted.  "We should make this a majority thing.  Nine votes.  Seriously.  Now, let's hear it."  The rest of the crown muttered angrily, but with a grudging shrug of their shoulders, agreed.  It was the fair thing to do.

_________________________________________________ ______________________


Time for a vote.  Unofficially, we have:
Dok Howl – 1
Semaj – 2
EoC – 1
Joh'Nyx – 1
Remington – 1
Rumkle – 1
(based upon the below quotes)

You will need NINE votes in order to get someone Put On A Bus this round.

If you do not plan on voting, please post as such.  Also, it would be nice if you clearly stated, "I vote for _______", and then follow with an updated tally.


Casting my vote: 
EoC - 1
Im voting for Remington, not out of spite, just to comply with the "voting" requisit, because im probably not going on before LMNO gets back.
I vote for JonnyX, because he's not here to defend himself...

I don't think that's a good idea at all. It would kill off citizens at a very quick rate, plus, abstaining from voting becomes pretty much meaningless, as you cannot prevent (any) people from being sent away at all.

---- what I was originally typing before "2 new replies have been posted" ---- >

People, people, if we don't reach a majority, nobody gets put on a bus.  Since we have no evidence, we're far more likely to vote out a citizen than we are a Spider, and just as likely to get rid of the Discordian as we are the Spider.  I don't think it would behoove us to even attempt to reach a majority this round, so I'm showing up here for role call and will abstain from voting.

I think this is actually a reasonable reasoning.

The only reason I can think of to vote for putting someone onna bus, is that it'll make *something happen*, which might result in clues? Or not? Ideas anyone?

Also somebody will get subsumed by a spider, but we won't know who that is either, right? Wait no, it's 50/50 the spider will succeed. Will we know if he/she succeeds?

And the Discordian will try to convert someone, when that happens it'll be their little secret? Will we know if the Discordian succeeded or not?

Also, the Discordian can PM people, right? So it would be in his/her advantage to start PMing people if they are fairly sure they're not spiders?
Say the Discordian figured that Iptuous can't be a spider because of his question ("do they know already, or get a PM next round?"), would it be in his/her advantage to PM Ippy his/her identity? Or is that also dangerous on the chance that Iptuous might get subsumed in the following round(s) and then informs the other spiders as to the Discordian's identity?

Also, ummm, say I got subsumed this round (or later), what forces me to take the Spider's side? But then, same could be asked for the vampire game. However, being subsumed and choosing the Citizen's side would probably ruin the game really quickly. So what's forcing me is not ruining the game? Or would it be allowed? Citizens might not believe me?

Nayyyyyy. While I think that nine is a tall order, the game should surely revolve around posting arguments to persuade other people, not just three or four people grouping together and everybody else voting willy nilly (lol, i said willy) Perhaps a compromise of sorts? 50% of players - 2 votes or 40% of players or something like that?

Also, abstaining from voting this round. Sorry.

For the record, it's nine this round (17/2=8.5, round up to 9).  Next round will be whatever 50%+1 is (depending on how many go away).


Trip, it's only 50/50 if you're a Discordian.  If you're not, it's 100%.  And if you're subsumed, you're out of the game.
Title: Re: SPIDERS: It's not a game.
Post by: Eater of Clowns on September 22, 2010, 04:41:16 pm
Like I said earlier, in the beginning when we have nothing to go by and such a large number of citizens as opposed to Spiders, it benefits citizens to not put anybody on a bus.  The odds there favor us sending away a potential ally, not the Spider.  If we don't reach a majority this time, that's actually good.

The problem is that later in the game, when we don't reach a majority (not if, when) we won't be able to eliminate people when we definitely need to.  On the flip side of that, we can assume that less people will be present in the game at that point, so it will take less people to make a majority.

If we do it by person with the most votes, we're guaranteed to send someone away each turn, which both helps and hurts the citizens.

If that's what it comes down to, I'll go with the "most votes gets eliminated" idea.  I have nothing against the game going on a while, but with the goal being to win I don't think we would ever get enough majority votes to eliminate someone when we really needed it.

Just read Trip and BDS's arguments, posted while I wrote this.  They make fair points, and I'll vote to stick with majority.
Title: Re: SPIDERS: It's not a game.
Post by: LMNO on September 22, 2010, 04:43:29 pm
So far, 2 aye to 3 nay.  I'm tempted to use the 50%+1 system, as it would prolong gameplay.
Title: Re: SPIDERS: It's not a game.
Post by: Triple Zero on September 22, 2010, 04:45:48 pm
If you're subsumed you're out of the game not turn into a spider? So we're not gonna get overrun by Spiders? Whooooo! :D

In that case, the Discordian might consider PMing Iptuous, if he or she feels that it's a safe bet.

That said, can ANYONE give me a good reason why it would be in the advantage of the Citizens to put ANYONE on a bus already this round, except "for the lulz"? Cause IMO it makes anybody campaigning for sending people on a bus already this round suspect ...

---

OTOH EoC also makes sense, maybe we can lower the threshold to 1/3rd? Dunno, sounds kinda quick-triggered scary to me as well.

Let me see if I have this right (I'm not a mathspag):

13 Citizens
1   Discordian
3   Spiders
17 Total

That makes 14 non-spiders to 3 spiders, so it'd be just under a 1 in 5 chance we'd actually remove one of them from the game?

So assuming we continue to not eliminate anybody, and the Spiders eliminate 1 citizen per round, at what point is it a reasonable risk to start putting people on a bus?  And importantly, how big of a target am I making myself?   :lulz:

No, I suppose you can be wishy washy until LMNO calls it quits. Though I'd say this means your vote now changes to "abstain", not "not voted yet" (for LMNO's keeping tally of how many people still need to state what they do with their vote)

Also, I abstain from voting this round.

I'd almsot vote for Freeky, since she was one of the most keen on putting someone on a bus already, which in the first round, really only supports the spiders.
Same reasoning would go for Howl btw, in addition to the irony of him being a spider :D

But, without any further evidence that's no use and I'll abstain this round.

and FRED you updated the tally wrong, since Ippy removed his vote for Semaj AND Sig voted for Fred.

CAN WE PLEASE PROMISE THAT EVERYBODY WILL REPOST THE TALLY WHEN THEY CHANGE THEIR VOTE (that means you, Ippy)

Dok Howl – 1
Semaj – 3
Remington – 1
Rumkle – 1
Fred - 3
Cudgel - 1
Sigmatic - 1

is that right now?

The argument lasted all day.  No one could agree on who among them was to blame.  They decided to table the discussion until the next day.  One by one, they went back to their apartments, houses, and condos.  Tomorrow would be another day, and it would come quickly. There was work to do.

___________________________________________________________________________


Another day done.  The sun already setting by the time the front door is reached.  Dead lightbulb on the front porch makes the keys slip the lock and rattle to the ground.  A sigh as they're picked up, wincing at a stab of pain in the back.  Up the stairs.  Can of soup in the microwave.  Reach for the remote.  Click.  Bland flavors.  Sit on the couch.  Bland colors.  Catch a glimpse across the room.  Glint of glass.  A bottle on the counter.  From that party that didn't happen last week.  Lack of interest.  A drink's not going to hurt.  Takes the edge off.  The whiskey has a sharp edge that sears the nostril, but it smells like a color.  Something that stands out in a beige life.  A glass turns into two, goes down quickly between episodes of "Minute to Win It."  Bottle's empty.  How did that happen?  Something rattling in the bottom.  A pill.  That doesn't make sense.  Things are getting fuzzy, can't seem to stand up.  There's something… wrapped… around…

Oh.  "America's Got Talent" is on.


Dr James Semaj has been subsumed by the Spider.  He is out of the game.

________________________________________________________________________________


Chuck waited for his morning train.  He did his best to avoid the crush of commuters around him, and jammed the earbuds for his iPod into his head, and fiddled with the controls.  Nothing happened.  He smacked it a few times, and the screen showed him the ugly truth: The charge ran out. With a sigh, Chuck leaned against the kiosk, and looked around with a bored eye.

"Pssst."

Turning left, Chuck saw a head peeking out behind the kiosk.  The head was grinning.  "Psst!"

"Yes?"  Chuck regarded the head warily.  He wasn't sure he could trust a pair of eyes that shone so brightly this early in the morning.  Either that, or Chuck wanted some of whatever coffee this head had been drinking.

"Are you awake?"

"Of course."

"No, I mean…" The head looked around conspiratorially.  "…really awake."

"I don't follow you."

"Right, right.  Do you like your job?"

"It pays the bills."

"But do you like it?"  The head was eager.  

"Of course not," Chuck scoffed.

"Well, why don't you do something about it?"

"What, quit?  Then I'd be out on the street, broke and hungry."

"No one said anything about quitting," the head grinned.

"Wait, you mean… Oh, wow."  Rusty gears inside Chuck's head started grinding.  He was reminded of his days in High School, how he kept himself amused by pranking his classmates.  Those had been good times.

"Yeah, I think you got it.  Here, let me show you something."  A hand emerged from behind the kiosk, gesturing Chuck closer.  

In the distance, the 7:15 train blew its horn as it came into the station.  Chuck watched it pull in, and stop.  The doors opened.  He watched people file in and out.  As Chuck watched it pull out again, a slow smile began to creep across his face.  He would catch the next one, maybe.  This looked like the beginning of a good day.  He turned back to his new friend.  "Ok, so tell me more…"



Discordian conversion: Successful.

based on, we dont take turns like in previous games everyone attacks each other at once. round one spider bites, we vote discordian discords. all at once.  so the spider would have to choose while we were still voting (and would also have to vote)

TECHNICAL NOTE:

Anyone can make their choice at any time. Special players were notified at post 1 of this thread.  They were in contact with me the entire time.  The order they're carried out, however, is Vote>Spider>Discordian.

If a Spider attacked someone who got voted off, then it would simply be redundant.

In other words, you can't use that as a way to tell.

I think Cudgel is a spider.  He votes to kill Semaj, and can't get enough votes (three votes, was it? Hmm.) and makes an unconvincing show of remorse.

As an aside, what happens if someone is targeted to be subsumed and converted on the same turn?

it happens in order.  it's not simultaneous, so i would assume that he is subsumed first and discordian chooses someone else, right?

It would seem that Remington was out for Semaj from the beginning. Voting no on the rule change would have been a safe bet for him, if he already planned to take out Semaj. Same goes for Cudgel, actually. I'm still not casting my vote, but it might be a good idea for us to keep an eye on those two. But if those two ARE the spiders, there's still a third out there. Anybody else notice Sig's Freudian slip? He said "we" in reference to the Discordians. Could be he's a Discordian. Or, it could be that he is actually a spider, and put that in there so we would associate him with the Discordians. On the other hand, it could have been totally metagame and irrelevant. 

But I'm just blowing smoke, the only thing I know for sure is that Semaj was neither a spider nor a Discordian.

Well, I guess that's fair. But since you pulled this strategy last game, when LMNO was getting too close and using logic, this is making you look suspicious too, Fred. But I didn't name you,  and if you were a spider, it would probably behoove you to let me keep making these assumptions for awhile yet. I don't think you are the spider.

@Semaj at least the spiders got you, and you weren't the first victim of your teammates' paranoia.

The Discordians can form a Cabal, I think, but I don't think there is any benefit unless the spiders have formed the Machine, right? It wastes a round they could be converting more Discordians in preparation for the Machine. More Discordians means less chance the Cabal gets disbanded by the Citizens voting one away. On the other hand, having a Cabal in place before the Machine is formed could mean the difference between getting steam rolled by the Machine and stopping it. Tough choice, really.

Sure. You just can't vote. Since you weren't given any idea of who made you a couch potato, your guess is no more informed that any others'.

Phoenix-you don't know what "backsies" means?  Have you never played tag?  You can't tag the person who just tagged you.

This was covered in the other thread. Please review.

Only thing I can think of right now is that there was somebody that said it would be hilarious if Semaj got voted off in the first round again (like happened last games? right?).

Looked through the thread, people who fit that qualification: Cudgel, TGG and Remington.

So either that person is the spider, or it's someone else with a misdirected sense of humor--as it may be funny that it happened again, but it's not cool that Semaj doesn't really get to play again. And apart from the running-gag value of the act, there wasn't much reason for the Spider to specifically pick out Semaj either.

somewhat arbitrarily adding up plusses and minus to remarks by people from the thread I suspect TGG slightly more than Cudgel and Remington, but because Cudgel is high up in the votes, I'm gonna vote for him:

Dok Howl - 1
Fred - 1
Ippie - 3

If all of the spiders voted for Cudgel, they could easily be stacking the deck and keeping us off-track. Voting for a person with lots of votes just because they have lots of votes... is silly. It will get easier for the spiders to stroke our paranoia if there are fewer of us. Cudgel might even be a Discordian, and then what happens? We are down to one "good guy" again. And the spiders are stronger for it.

wait...
why would a spider abstain?
wouldn't a spider want to always vote in order to thin the pack as much as possible?  jump on whatever bandwagon is winning?
 i'm abstaining because last time i voted for Semaj, and it turned out that that was the wrong choice, and i felt bad after he was subsumed because it was really just a pot shot...
so now in the absence of any clue, i don't want to screw anybody over just 'because'...

Well, I think that the spiders would gain an advantage by getting people voted off early, like Iptuous is saying. On the other hand, they might abstain in fear of voting off one of their own, until they formed the Machine. This makes it tricky...

"Can we vote now?"
"Yeah, I've got things to do back home!"
"Hey, can we talk about this first?"
"Fuck no!  Why do you want to talk?  You one of them intellectuals?"
"No, it's just that, we don't really know—"
"Maybe it's you!"
"I'm just trying to help…"
"Help, nothing!"
"Yeah!"
"Yeah!"
"Let's do this."

Cudgel felt a hand on his shoulder.  A large man, with an impassive face, leaned in close.  "Look, son.  You're acting strangely, and as you can tell, we don't really cotton to that.  You might want to take your act elsewhere."

"You don't understand!  I'm the one person who can make a difference!"

"No, you don't understand.  We don't want you here.  Now go, before people get unpleasant ideas in their head, and you wind up with a few fresh bruises."

Cudgel backed out the front doors with a wary, hurt look on his face.  "This is such a mistake," he muttered.  "Fuck it.  You guys get what you deserve.  I'm moving to Seattle."  Turning his back on the crowd, he headed for the bus station.  As Cudgel turned the corner, something fell out of his pocket.  One of the citizens picked it up.  In Arial, it read:


"THERE IS NO ENEMY ANYWHERE."





The Citizens have put a Discordian On A Bus. Cudgel is out of the game.

________________________________________________________________________

"Yeah, I'm going to have to ask you to work late tonight."

My heart sank at the words.  It's not that I had anything special to do… let's be honest, my life consists of alarm clocks, computer screens, coffee, take-out pizza, and a six pack of beer while staring at whatever sports ball game is on the TV before passing out just as the alarm clock goes off again.  Still, the eyestrain, fluorescence, and added boredom of work seem to multiply every minute past the allotted eight hours.

"Am I gonna get overtime for this?"

"Sorry, no can do.  But you can keep your job."

I shook my head slowly, and turned back to the screen.  Names, dates, and figures flashed before me as I compared, analyzed, double-checked, and verified.  Around me, the insistent din of the office faded as various co-workers packed up and went home. 

At 7:00, the motion detectors kicked in, and started shutting off the lights in the sectors where there was no movement.  The setting sun made a final attempt at beauty, and then gave up and sank below the horizon.  A lone tube of florescence glowed above me, doing a poor job of offsetting the glare from my monitor.  I yawned, and reached for my mug.  The coffee was room temperature, weak, and bitter.  I grimaced, and swatted an itch at the back of my neck.  James, Nancy.  $78,002.98 My eyes were burning from the strain, and my neck was cramping up.  Subsidized towards Edward Collins, Inc. 7.18.03. I tried to stretch, and my shoulder muscle seized.  It felt like someone was jabbing me with an ice pick. Cf: Policy 7836580-M726. 

Things went soft.  I put the coffee down.  There was work to do.  I had to please the company.  Things would get better if I do this well.  My eyes half closed, and I knew I would be able to do this as long as it took.  Even if it was for the rest of my life.  That would be nice.  Something that bristled with hair brushed gently against my cheek.  The overhead bulb abruptly went out, and the only light that remained was the comforting glow of the computer screen as it illuminated my face with a cold blue wash. 

In the dark, something scuttled away.


Sigmatic has been subsumed by the Spider.  He is out of the game.


_________________________________________________________________

Chuck knocked on the door.  It opened.  A woman looked back at him.  "Yes?"

"Um… Hi.  Did you know that God is a woman, and her name is Eris?"

"Excuse me?"

"That is… I mean…"  Chuck started to turn away.

"No, no.  Wait.  Is this some sort of, well, I don't know what.  Some sort of initiation prank?"

"Not really.  Sort of.  I just wanted to see if you would be interested in doing something, uh, interesting."

"Now that's intriguing.  Come inside.  Drink?"

"…OK." 

Chuck walked through the door, and into a one-bedroom apartment that was decorated in some sort of 'Bohemian Bordello' design.  Red velvet hung from the ceiling and walls, draped and billowing, with gold trim accenting various aspects of the room.  She sat down on a black leather couch, reached over to a small table, and poured what looked like high-quality scotch into a glass.  She held it out.  "Please.  Drink."  She patted her hand on the cushion next to her.  "Sit."

Chuck took the glass and sat down.  The alcohol smelled rich, and smooth.  He sipped, and it slid down his throat like fiery candy.  He took another sip.  Immediately, his head began to swim, and he closed his eyes.  He heard her ask, "Are you all right?"  He felt her hand.  "Here, let me help you.  Let me help you… Forever."

His eyes snapped open.  He stared straight in her face, and saw.  Solid black eyes, tight and hard.  Teeth like needles.  A hungry, feral set to her face.  She hunched her back, and grabbed his arm with a grip powerful enough to make him gasp.  "Come on… Give me a taste.  I'll make it all better."  A thin, wiry tongue slipped from between her teeth, and lashed the air lewdly.

Chuck wrenched his arm from her grip and leapt for the front door, kicking over the table in his struggle.  The woman pounced, but caught her foot on the corner of the upturned leg, and tumbled to the ground.  Chuck yanked the door open, and fled into the street. 

The woman slowly closed the door, and sat in the center of the room.  She curled her four lower legs around herself.  "Shit."




A Discordian tried to convert a Spider.  They were able to escape.  The Spider does not know who the Discordian is.

Johnny pm'd me saying that he was a spider, and knew I was, too.

I think he was trying to draw me out, not offer an alliance, though.

But we should stick him on the bus anyway, to show the Spiders we mean business.

We have established in prior games that PMs are fair game, due to the treacherous and horribly immoral aspect of these games.

That being said, I vote to put Johnny on the bus, because of 911.

Anyone who disagrees hates America and loves Saddam's WMDs.

If a Discordian openly admitted to it, then he/she is definitely actually a spider.

Except that Cudgel knows who Discordian Chuck is, cause he converted him, according to the (first) narration, the person that got converted was Chuck, so Cudgel must have been the Original Discordian.

So if Discordian Chuck would please to PM Cudgel with the identity of the Spider they failed to convert, then Cudgel could tell us.

This is foolproof because:
a) Cudgel knows the identity of Chuck since he converted him/her
b) and we know (now) we can trust Cudgel cause he's a dead Discordian

So, for once, THIS round should be pretty clear cut.

And those who protest that Cudgel may not provide this information cause he's on a bus:

1) are spiders themselves

2) forgot about the treacherous and horribly immoral aspect of these games.

3) When Semaj got offed Dok Alphapance said himself they could talk but just not vote:
Uh, Dok. Am I allowed to keep talking in this thread?
Sure. You just can't vote.

Well there's ways of foiling the "who's online" information, if that's what you're talking about.

It only shows the last recorded action, so if you open the "write PM" screen, and in a second tab browse around some thread a bit, it will only show "is writing PM" for half a second or so. Do the same thing after you press "send" and hardly anybody will be the wiser.

Dok A said he would allow it, ergo it is not cheating. But.....if it would make the game less fun for all I won't share whatever it is that Chuck tells me.

The fillings in your teeth begin to vibrate, filling your mouth with an uncomfortable feelings of someone cramming a personal massager cranked up to eleven in your mouth. Just as you realize that you don't have any fillings the vibrations turn to sound.

-static-
te-garble bargle shhhhhh-on?
-high pitched whine-
Test test test is this thing on?
 -the sound of someone tapping on a glass window-

Hello? Can you guys hear me?

"What the crap is this?"
The people around you on the street look at you briefly before slowly wandering away from you faster.

Not so loud. Do you want people to think you are crazy?

'Cudgel?" You mumble surprised.

Yes. It's Cudgel. You would be surprised how much work it was to trasmit audio through the fillings in someone teeth when they don't have teeth.

"wha"

You get cut off.

Enough pleasantries. Seattle sucks. It's wet and dank and there is too much patchouli stinking up the air here. That is not why I just hijacked military spy satellites to make a collect call. I know who one of the Spiders is.

"who?"

That "lovely" girl Pho. Watch out for her. Chuck told me he tried to eat him.

I leave for a weekend and this is what happens? Well, I guess there's no point in trying to defend myself, since we really have no reason not to trust Cudgel. I mean, he doesn't have anything to gain from lying about what he was told. I have my future at stake, so lying behooves me. The glitch is i know I'm not a spider. Cudgel knows that, too. But, i suppose you will take his word over mine.

Two things:  The person who PMed Cudgel in confidence might have been a spider feeding him misinformation.  Also, who wrote the interlude, the PMer or Cudgel?

ETA:  Though my arguing position is highly dubious (subsumed lol), I suggest going with what Cudgel says, then if it turns out he was wrong (assuming the fraud Chuck wrote that interlude) we scrutinize the writing to try to guess who it was.

The only evidence that I’ve really seen (beyond some people just acting strangely, as if that means anything in a place like this) is Cudgel’s announcement.  And since I would find it both hilarious and cathartic to yank everyone’s leg in that circumstance, I don’t know how much credibility to give that.  Other than that, I don’t see any reason to think PoD is a spider.
But since I get the feeling I would get ribbed for continuing to abstain, I will vote for Freeky, just so she doesn’t feel left out anymore. :)

Trip,
How can you dismiss my contention that it could easily be a (pretty funny) joke on the part of cudgel?

Because it means you think a completely random guess is better than assuming Cudgel is still on our side.

there's 13 people minus you, chances of hitting a spider by random guess are 3 out of 13 = 23% (ZOMG) plus risking to accidentally hit the last Discordian with a chance of 7%.

Also if Cudgel'd want to fuck with us, he'd have a 15% chance of giving us one of the two other spiders by accident.

... um. and that's about where my probability calculations are starting to confuse me but picking someone at random is only going to give you more chance of hitting a spider than following Cudgel's advice if you are VERY sure he MUST be pulling a joke on us. Where "VERY" is either about 2/3rds or 4/5ths ... I think. Maybe someone else knows. But it's probably a lot.

Not that it matters much since your vote does not matter much.

Pho glanced at her watch.  She was late for that day's meeting, and so walked briskly towards the Starbuck's.  As she approached the large glass door at the entrance, she noticed a piece of paper with a scrawled note taped to it.  

"Pho: Gone across the street. At Charlie's Pub.  C U There!"

Snatching the note off the door, she hurried across the busy street, frowning.  Something wasn't right.  The front doors of the bar were half open, and she could hear someone inside, singing.

"We're caught in a trap… I can't walk out…"

Pho stopped, and glanced at the awning above the doors.  "Live Kareoke Nitely," it read.  A few more voices joined in the lyric.  "Why can't you see… What you're doing to me… When you don't believe a word I'm saying…"
 
There was a burst of laughter then, and Pho shook her head.  This wasn't how it was supposed to be working.  Dammit, they were getting along.  Everyone was singing now, blaring out the chorus.  "WE CAN'T GO ON TOGETHER, WITH SUSPICIOUS MINDS; AND WE CAN'T BUILD OUR DREAMS ON SUSPICIOUS MINDS…"

Pho tried to take a step forward, but couldn't.  The sheer joy and happiness rolling out of the bar was overwhelming.  She took a step back.  

"Hey, watch it!" a voice shouted.  She turned to see a bike courier racing towards her, taking up most of the sidewalk.  Instinctively, she jumped out of the way.  Unfortunately, she jumped into the street.

Looking up, the last thing she saw was the front grille of a Greyhound bus.  Emblazoned across the top was the destination:  "NOW-HERE".

Thump.

Inside the bar, a voice faltered.  Something had changed.  Hurriedly, they went back to mouthing the words, hoping that no one would notice the slip.  No one did, and no one noticed there were, in fact, two faces that suddenly seemed terribly uncomfortable.

One of the Spiders has been eliminated.  The Machine™ cannot be created. PhoenixofDiscordia is out of the game.


____________________________________________________________________


Ofuck how could this have happened I was just going to see her tonight because I felt there was something familiar about her just like looking in a mirror and there wasn't any resentment or bitter antipathy like the rest of these fuckers no not hate but something to use to abuse to consume to fuel and I was sure that she would be the one to finally get them all and crush the weak under my feet and what was up with that radio message how could she have missed that scrawny little fuck he couldn't even stand up for himself when the rest of these deluded fools started accusing him and ofuck there's another one of them out there somewhere I have to find them but there's another one of me too and we have to find each other so we can feed and control and control and control and have to get them and eat them and I'll show them how to be happy and I'll take away their cares and worries and I'LL MAKE IT ALL BETTER..

The Spider did not subsume anyone this round.

_________________________________________________________________

Chuck took the day off work.  A quick call to the boss was all it took; that and a few well-timed coughs, of course.  After a brief stop at a local copy shop, he was soon on the streets, a ream of paper in one hand, a stapler in the other.  KA-CHUNK.  

Every time a staple jabbed into a telephone pole, Chuck smiled.  This should be pretty fun.  KA-CHUNK.  He glanced off to the right.  Down the street, someone had stopped and was peering at the flyer Chuck had left behind.  The smile slipped off his face as her realized that it would be pretty obvious who had put it up there.  Chuck quickly turned and walked in the other direction as the stranger looked his way, tore the flyer off the pole, and shouted, "Hey!"

Chuck walked faster, trying to stay nonchalant.  He risked a glance behind him, and saw the stranger running.  "Hey!"  Panicked, Chuck turned around slowly.  "Yeah?"

"Did you do this?"  He held up the flyer.  Below a picture of a gracefully swooping handlebar moustache was written in big, bold, capital letters, "HAVE YOU SEEN THIS MOUSTACHE?  BECAUSE IT IS AWESOME."

Chuck coughed nervously.  "Um…"

"It's fucking hilarious.  My name's Peter."

"…Chuck…"

"Ha!  A likely story.  Hey, you know where these would go over great?  Down in the fashion district.  C'mon, I'll show you."

I do think Johny's PM attempt was him trying to mete out those he was suspicious of.  It was not a brilliant maneuver, HOWEVER, I do not think he is a spider.  He was one of the first that took Cudgel's word and voted for Pho.  Now, I would say this is the move a genre savvy spider would make, except it wouldn't mesh with the fact that he blew it with the PMs.  So unless this is some wild xanatos gambit I'm falling into...

On the other hand, unless like I said at least one of the spiders is genre savvy by voting for Pho, we can reasonably suspect the remaining spiders either voted for someone else or abstained.

I realize this puts me among their number, and so I'll defend my action.  Honestly, it comes down to not really liking the idea of someone that was put on a bus being integral to the development.  Not saying they shouldn't be participating, because it's at least partially my fault Cudgel is gone in the first place, but I wasn't a fan of it.  So that's really all it boils down to.  And I would like to add that I abstained only after it was clear Pho had the majority enough vote that it wouldn't have made a difference.

I was thinking Dok was a spider, but now I think he's just fucking with everyone for shitsngiggles.
Otherwise his actions just don't make any sense...


You're operating under the assumption that you have all the facts about how this game works.

pfft...
you should know, Dok, that i operate under the assumption that i don't really understand anything at all...
I also operate with a healthy fear of unstable folk such as yourself, and therefore didn't want to use language reminiscent of E-prime, which i believe is one of your triggers...

You wound me, Fred, you really do.  If you can't trust your Doktor, whom can you trust?  That's as bad as the prior accusation that I may be less than completely stable.

And my legs may be hairy, but not spidery.  They are massive, like mighty oak trees.  I can kick through a 1975 Mustang.  No shit.

All Babylon jokes aside, the evidence is incontrivertible:

I abstained from voting due to lack of evidence, and apparently that makes me prime suspect, so I figure I can at least enjoy flinging shit for one round...

I think Ip is more likely.  Before I was subsumed, he PM'ed me

Sig,
i'm thinking that Dok is a spider.
i was kinda creeped out by his comment, because i interpreted it as meaning that he was using his horrible admin powers to snoop my PMs and saw that i was in communication with LMNO (which is true, but on a totally different topic)
he convinced me that he didn't do any such thing, and was just bluffing, but his tone is pretty cagey...

what do you think?


And I told him I suspected him just as much as I suspect Howl.  Next thing, I'm an apathetic couch blob.  Hmm.

Excellent.  I think you will find that being the villain is a little habit forming, and has many advantages over being the hero.  If it weren't for the horrible deaths we villains must eventually face, there would be no disadvantages, whatsoever.  Consider:

1.  We get to ravish the women.  You get to rescue them.  Enjoy those sloppy seconds, assuming you aren't one of those "pure" types that won't get any at all.

2.  Maniacal laughter.  We get to do it, you don't.

3.  Secret bases.  Until the hero screws them up, there are no cooler digs, anywhere.

4.  Revenge.  Show them, Dr Semaj.  Show them ALL.

5.  Heroes don't get paid.  Villians get an army of radioactive gorillas.  Decide.

All you have to do, Dr Semaj, is change "Dr" to "Doktor", and start reaping all the rewards of being the bad guy.  Sure, you'll wind up falling out of a zeppellin or into a vat of acid...But everyone has to go sometime, and why not enjoy yourself while you're here?

Incidentally, I will now say for the record that Ippie and Johnny are the spiders.  169% guaranteed.

Keep spinning them webs Dok, no one knows anything for certain, and claiming otherwise is of ill intent.

And the turn to the darkside is now complete. The only problem is, we villains tend to have no compunctions about killing each other off, so he's probably going to come after me now. Ah well, it was worth it.  :evil:

That will teach you to have a cutsey avatar.

In your next incarnation, try using something more appropriate.

This one more to your liking, Dok?

Can't see it on this comp.  Will advise later.

Iptuous sat in front of his computer at home, angrily surfing various chat rooms and websites.  He usually took pleasure in dropping subtle comments into conversations, turning things in just the wrong direction.  The new technology made his life so much easier; but today, he was on a mission.  They had to pay.

[Dawn] Im bored.
[Arachno23] u should have another drink.
[Dawn] good idea lol.

[Bobby] wut the fuk is up with school
[Bobby] gonna start a protest
[Arachno23] what's the point? No one will listen anyway
[Arachno23] nothing you do will ever matter.
[Bobby] ur right.  Fuck it.  
[Bobby] Nvr mind

[Freeky] squee! Gonna go out and look for the WEIRD tonight!
[Arachno23] Don't bother.  Any fun you may have will be shallow and meaningless.
[Freeky] Why the fuck are you, some sort of Diabolus Ex Vacuus (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DiabolusExVacuus) or something?
[Arachno23] What?
[Freeky] Click the link, genius.

Iptuous clicked, and started reading.  Then he clicked again.  And again.  From Chandler's Law to Dropping a Cow to What It Says On The Tin to Having a Heart to Soul Jar to Epileptic Trees to Schrodinger's Butterfly to Downer Ending to Nightmare Fuel.

Click.
Click.
Click.

And some say he's still clicking, even now


One of the Spiders has been eliminated.  Iptuous is out of the game.

_______________________________________________________________


The last spider clung to a minaret, high above The City.  In it's heart, it knew that another of it's kind had gone away.  It had to be clever now.  It had to be smart.  And it knew it was.  Smarter than all these… snacks.  It would move silently, it would move swiftly.  It would make sure everything went according to plan.  It would start tomorrow.

The Spider did not subsume anyone this round.

"Hey, mister."

"Yeah?"

Peter jumped up and down.  "Come on, you cabbage!  Show some life!"

"Could you please go away?"

"Don't be a sheep!  Even black sheep are still sheep!"

"I'm serious—"

"SERIOUS?  You're like '1984', only 26 years late!"

"Ok, look.  If you don't stop bothering me, I'm going to call the police."

Peter stopped abruptly.  "Really?  You'd do that to me?"

"If you don't stop bothering me.  I've got more important things to do."

"Like what?  Work your job, get your pay?"

"If you must know, yes.  I have these things called 'bills' and 'rent'.  I don't suppose you'd know about those things, from the looks of you."

"Hey…"

"Go play your silly little games with someone else.  I really don't have time right now."

Look, here's the PM:
I'm not sure of anything ATM...
What exactly makes you think that you know I am " for a fact" a spider.  :)

Because at the start of the game LMNO gave each one of us the name of another Spider. He gave me yours, and maybe he gave Howl mine, but im not sure if he indeed is one; you on the other hand, know who the other spider is and we can make a daisy-chain of trust.

Lord, Cudgel....
yeah. it can be refuted as far as validity.  screenshots could be too, i guess....
but you're missing the point.
the point is, Johny is NOT the spider....  (i was being facetious)
he was claiming to be the spider in order to draw one out, just like he did with several other people.
but in making that claim, he blundered by not realizing that the spiders didn't actually know the identity of one other spider from the beginning.... if he was a spider, he would have known that.
In my messages with Dok, he agreed, but still wanted to bus him, so it seems apparent that Dok is a spider.
I don't see any plausible alternative....

Nope.  All will be made clear when the dust settles.

911.  Freedom.  What about our towers?  If we fight them over there, we don't have to fight them over here. 

Johnny is a terrorist, as I have already proven.  Also, his PMs to everyone were a double game.  He was fishing for REGULAR PEOPLE AND DISCORDIANS, not spiders, using reverse psychology to make it look like a bad attempt at flushing out the spiders.

No need to feel like a dupe.  There's good reason not to trust both Joh'Nyx and Dok.

The way I see it, by killing Joh'Nyx, we can reasonably expect to find out that either he is the Spider or Dok is the Spider.  On the other hand, by killing Dok, we find out whether or not he's the Spider but not necessarily whether or not Joh'Nyx is the Spider.

So if our chances are about equal either way, we might as well go with the action that will give us more information to go on.

The group, a bit smaller, gathered again at Charlie's Pub.  They were all smiling, laughing with each other.  "This is easy!" chirped Alice.  "I can feel it in my bones.  We're almost done with this! 

"Can't you just feel the electricity in the air?" asked Larry.  "They last few days, it's been like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders.  But I think we all know what needs to be done, now."

The group turned and stared at Joh'Nyx.  He looked up.  "What?  Why are you guys… Hey, wait a second."

"You have to admit, he's been acting weird," said Marvin.  "I think he needs to go."

"Agreed," chimed in both Evelyn and Darrell.

A voice cried out from the back, "I don't like the looks of him!"

Joh'Nyx looked around.  "Well, it looks like I'm not wanted."

"Damn right!"

"That's fine.  I was planning on moving to Brooklyn and opening up a vegan beef jerky shop, and sell second-hand moustaches and PBR on the side."

"Good riddance!  Go back to Brooklyn, Brooklyn!"

As Joh'Nyx headed out of the bar, the citizens high-fived each other, and looked around expectantly.  The final shreds of grey would soon be lifted, the fear and misery that had hung over the city would soon be gone…

Nothing happened.


Joh'Nyx has taken a bus to NYC.  He is out of the game.  He was not the Spider.


______________________________________________________________________


"Doc, you gotta help me.  I haven't been able to sleep in weeks."

"Really?  What seems to be the problem?"

"There's just so much going on, you know?  I feel like if I close my eyes, I'm going to miss something.  I look around me, and there's just apathy, everywhere I look.  But things need to happen, you know?  Things need to get done.  There's more to life than just paying you bills.  There are people that need help, there are things that I need to learn, there's just… you know… too much to do."

"Ah, yes.  I understand completely.  It's Stress."

"Well, it's stressfull, yeah…"

"No, no.  You are experiencing Stress.  That can be very dangerous.  You must try to calm yourself."

"Calm myself?  Doc, have you read the paper lately?  There's nothing to be calm about."

The man in the white coat scribbled something on a prescription pad, and then reached into his desk and rummaged around.  He eventually withdrew his hand, and proffered it.  In his palm were three small pills.  "I've written you a prescription that will help, but until you get that filled, you should take these."

"But I don't have to sleep right now."

"They are not for sleeping.  They are to relax you.  Doctor's orders."

"But—"

"Mister Remington, may I remind you that you are in a Doctor's office, and I can have you committed for resisting medical attention?  A twenty-four hour observation to start with, but it would be easy for me to diagnose you at this point.  Now, take the goddamn medication."

Stunned, he took the pills from the Doctor's hand, and popped them in his mouth.  With a cough, he swallowed them dry. 

"Good.  Now, let me show you to the door."  The Doctor took Remington's hand, and led him to a door.  As it opened, all Remington could see were thin strands of silk, woven in an intricate pattern.  His eyes became heavy, and a soft hiss began to drown out all the wild, untamed thoughts in his head.

"Thanks, Doc.  I'm starting to feel… much more… relaxed."

"Good, good.  Glad to hear it.  Now, go to the pharmacy, get your prescription, and take one pill every six hours.  You'll be fine."

"Yes.  Fine."  Remington walked out of the office, and down to the elevator.  Yes.  He would be fine.  Nothing is a problem any more.  No more worries.  None at all.


Remington has been subsumed by the Spider.  He is out of the game.

____________________________________________________________


Jack sat at his desk.  He tried to do some work, but his mind kept drifting back to that odd encounter yesterday.  What a freak, he thought to himself.  But still.  There was something about that guy.  He seemed so free, so happy.  Shaking his head, he tried to focus on the galleys in front of him, but it just wasn't happening.  Where have I seen him before?  Oh, yeah!  It was at those meetings.  Weird, he always seemed pretty reserved at those things.  Hey, don't I have his email? 

Jack checked his pockets, and found the list of contacts that was passed around at the last meeting.  There.  "Peter".  He moved to his PC, and typed out a quick message.

"Peter: Maybe you're right.  Maybe there's more to life than a paycheck.  If you're still interested, meet me at the Purple Shamrock tonight at 8:00.  –Jack"

He hit send, and then leaned back in his chair.  Could be, he's just posing, and is actually fairly dull.  Then again, this could get interesting. We'll see…

Okay, it's a given that Dok is the spider, or at least seems to be. But what if he isn't?

Let's look at possibilities for AFTER Dok gets the boot, and it turns out he's not.

Requia barely posts, as does Storebrand, but they're usually on. So does BDS, and Remmy. Are they trying to fly under the radar? Maybe.

Also, EOC didn't vote against Pho when Cudgel told us the other discordian told him she was a spider, which is suspicious as fuck. If you recall, Ippie did the same thing, I think.

Voting for Dok, but there are other targets to consider, if it turns out he's one of us.

I've given my reason, Freeky, and I hope the fact that I've been acting to benefit the citizens' winning has been clear.  I've been wrong, yeah, but so has everyone here.

I did point out that the people who didn't vote for Pho were suspicious, myself included.  I gave my reason, and I stick by it, and I'll be revisiting that reason after the INEVITABLE AWESOME VICTORY OF THE CITIZENS.  Actually, Ippie's failure to convincingly argue why he didn't vote for Pho is what led me to cast my vote against him (the first vote against him, for the record, so you know I wasn't going with the flow to stay alive).

Anyone still alive is a suspect, even though statisically they're not likely to actually be the Spider.  But if we're just throwing accusations around, Freeky, why are you so keen to determine who is next to go when we haven't even found out if Dok's our man yet?

It's a clever foundation you're working on.  Last round, you voted for me and said you thought I was the Spider even after it was clear Joh'Nyx would be going, without even giving a reason.  So now it's already in people's heads.  Now, you're re-establishing the distrust with a reason, in spite of me having already addressed it, to further sew that seed.  I can expect that if, somehow, Dok is not the Spider, that next round I'll be the target you focus on in hopes to get support.  Sounds exactly like how a Spider would divert attention.

BUT - I'm not accusing you of being the Spider.  Like I said, everyone still around is a suspect.  What I'm doing is making it clear that any action, significant or not, can be used as evidence against someone.  Cudgel pointed this out right before getting sent out (so, clearly, it's smart of me to use this proven ineffective technique  :lol:).

Man this game is fun.

To be honest, I'm just trying to think ahead here. I am very suspicious of Dok, particularly since he's been acting the same IRL as he has ITT, but he's denied being a spider so emphatically whenever I asked if he was that he might be telling the truth. So I dunno, that post was mostly for my own benefit, but also to get other people thinking, too.

Also for reasons I can't explain, I'm suspicious of Trip. Probably he isn't one though.

Yeah, I was just reminded that Trip came up with the idea of the other discordian telling cudgel who the spider was, so yeah. I'm a dumbass. :lulz:

Okay, it's a given that Dok is the spider, or at least seems to be. But what if he isn't?

Let's look at possibilities for AFTER Dok gets the boot, and it turns out he's not.

Requia barely posts, as does Storebrand, but they're usually on. So does BDS, and Remmy. Are they trying to fly under the radar? Maybe.

Also, EOC didn't vote against Pho when Cudgel told us the other discordian told him she was a spider, which is suspicious as fuck. If you recall, Ippie did the same thing, I think.

Voting for Dok, but there are other targets to consider, if it turns out he's one of us.

Remmy got subsumed, so... Remmy was not the spider. Just sayin'.

Yeah, yeah. After today, give me some slack on the particulars, okay? It was ABYSMAL.
I am the trickiest damn Spider there ever was. I subsumed myself to throw you people off my trail  :link:

Technically, Trip had the original idea of the remaining discordian telling you about Pho, and Dok pointed the first finger at Ippie.

He conveniently forgets that Pho's clever takedown wasn't his idea, I posted the only evidence that actually incriminated Iptuous, and that there is still no evidence for Dok.  Only readings of his behavior. 

So it is kind of amusing how happy he is to point out his infallibility.

I was not informed of that fact. :argh!:

Fred
Requia
EOC

Dok is pulling for Fred, I think it's highly likely that Requia is since she just wants to off Dok for no reason (although that's what Dok did to Johnny), and EOC is one shifty bastard.

I don't think Dok would campaign so hard for Joh'Nyx, knowing that he'd be eliminated if he was wrong, if he was indeed the last Spider.

I'm keeping my vote for him because I see less to trust in his actions than in those of the remaining players.

That said, if we don't bus off someone this round, we're still in good shape.  Ten people remaining, 1 Spider, 3 Discordians, 6 Citizens.  The next subsuming should give us something to go on, and time is on our side with Discordians either spreading or stumbling upon the last Spider.

It actually might benefit us not to send anyone off, since we're likely as not to have two allies removed in one round rather than one.

Freeky, I appreciate that you think of me as a shifty bastard, but really I'm just cripplingly paranoid.  I've lawl of 5'ed myself into thinking that the Spider is capable of the most ridiculously complex plots and manipulation far beyond anything I could actually execute myself.  That being the case, I am just as clueless as to the actual identity of the Spider or Discordians as if I were roll a die for it.

I agree, and if FRED WOULD EVER GET ON, we'd probably find out if Dok is the spider or no. I can't shake the feeling that he is one.

Dok isn't the Spider. :lulz:

How do you know?

If he were a Citizen, why would he have been trying so hard to get Joh'Nyx bussed? If it was just for giggles, it wasn't exactly helping the Citizens cause.

I disagree with EOC suggesting we don't bus off anyone this round. Because while he's right in that we can probably spare an extra subsuming, time is on our side, not bussing anyone this round is exactly what would be best for the Spider to get time back on its side. Or isnt it? :?

I don't see how.  We aren't really sparing a subsuming, we're avoiding sending a potential ally away on top of that subsuming (if we aren't sure).  You also were in favor of skipping the first bus when the odds of hitting the Spider were 3 in 17 (1 in ~5.66), yet aren't when the odds are a slimmer 1 in 10?

The citizens were puzzled.  That should have worked.  They were told that Joh'Nyx was to blame.  They had trusted—

Nine heads turned and faced Dok Howl.  He shrugged his shoulders.  "What?"

"Why the hell did you tell us to do that?"

"He was obviously the wrong kind of person."

"What?"

"He was a threat to national security."

"You're an absolute nutter."

"HA!  It was for the greater good."

"Ok, that's it.  You're out of here."

"FOOLS! If you do not follow me, you will all surely die!"

[aside] "Can someone call security?"

"SUCKERS!  YOU'RE ALL A BUNCH OF SUCKERS!  THE SPIDERS WILL GET US ALL!  YOU NEVER LISTEN TO ME!"

That was when the bartender pulled out a tazer and fired 50,000 volts into Dok Howl.  Sparks flashed from his fillings, and he began to cackle.

"HAHAHAHAHAHA! FEAR ME, HEED ME AND LISTEN!  IF I AM CAST ASIDE, NONE SHALL SURVIVE!"

He was still hurling mockery and invectives when they finally dragged him out.  Dok Howl was last seen on a bus to Tuscon.

But it turns out, he was right about one thing…


Dok Howl is out of the game.  He was not the last Spider.

__________________________________________________________

Later…

"You look troubled."

A shadow fell over me.  Ah, Marvin.  "Oh, it's you.  Hey.  Yeah, I'm kind of bummed out."

"What's up?"

"It's just that nothing seems to be going right.  I keep trying to make decisions, but then don't work out.  What am I doing wrong?"

"Oh, that's easy.  You're trying too hard."

"What is that, some sort of pseudo-Zen bullshit?"

"No, you really need to just stop making decisions.

I had no idea what Marvin was talking about.  He stepped closer.  Putting a hand on my shoulder, he leaned in close, and said, "Stop thinking so hard."  His grip was tight, almost painful.

"Ow, hey, cut it out!"

"Listen.  Stop thinking.  It's the only way."

Too late, I figured it out.  I tried to run, but there was something wrapped around my feet.  Marvin leaned in even closer, and I could feel his breath on my neck.

"No more thinking, Requia."



Requia has been subsumed by the Spider.  He is out of the game.

_______________________________________________________________


Jack looked across the poker table at Bob.  "You know, Bob, I've been thinking."

"Yeah?  I bet $20."

"Raise $40.  I think we've been going about this entirely the wrong way."

"I'll raise another $10.  How do you mean?"

Jack glanced to one side conspiratorially.  "What if this whole thing isn’t about who to blame, but about just getting the hell up and doing stuff yourself?"  He tossed another $20 on the table.  "Raise $10."

"I don't follow you."

"Why do we keep blaming our situation on everything except ourselves?  What if the whole answer is that we have to do the work on our own?"

"Sounds reasonable.  Call.  But how do we go about doing that?"

"By forgetting all the rules, and making up our own.  What you got?"

"Straight, Queen high.  I'm still not following you."

"Like this."  Jack laid his hand down on the table.  Bob, looked over at the cards, puzzled.  Smiling, Jack said, "I have the Ace of Spags, the Pi of Pies, the Five of Fives, The Shoe of Fish, and the Blank Card.  I win."

A grin spread over Bob's face.  "Are you…?"

"Yup.  You in?"

"You bet."

Dok, at least you had a hell of an outro.   :lulz: 

8 left: 1 Spider, 4 Discordians, 3 Citizens

I said it last round, and I'd like to reiterate it, I don't think it benefits us to ship anybody off.  Right now we have no decent leads.  The Discordians know who one another are, and as the rounds go on they'll either keep building forces or stumble upon the remaining Spider, at which point they can just all vote the Spider off.

Freeky, Fred, and I are the three chief suspects right now, because we've been pretty vocal, and the chances that at least one of us is a Discordian are pretty high.  If we get rid of a Discordian, and the Spider subsumes another (which has a 50% chance of being a Discordian), the citizens are down to 5 and STILL won't know who the Spider is.  I don't want to hemorrhage our forces any more than necessary.  I think time is on the side of the Discordians.

I still don't understand the tactics you were working, which was my biggest source of suspicion.

Which tactics?  "Engaging in the game, instead of having no fun while hiding and hoping nobody notices me?"

I'd rather get put on the bus, thanks.

At least this way, I can watch you all get converted to spider chow.  I also happen to have figured out who the spider is (it's amazingly obvious, when you think about it), but I think I'll just sit here and gloat on the horribly stained bus seat to which I have adhered.

Well, Sir Coyote has admitted that he was lying to you about Dok, I obviously lied to you, but Dok is the only person so far who you can actually trust. Or so you think. He hasn't lied to you... yet. But he is advocating that you vote off TGG, as am I. Take his word over mine, if you'd like. The clues are there. Read LMNO's descriptions more closely. The last spider is female. It may not be TGG. It could be you, Freeky. But... what do I know, I'm just a spider in Now Here.

Trust me, or don't. Doesn't matter to me. But you can't trust your Discordian friend on the outside. He stopped caring about you after he settled down in Seattle. Maybe I should go there.... pay him a visit.

The group eyed each other nervously.  Their number had diminished significantly, and they were nervous and unsure of what to do.  They could feel the empty presence of the departed all around them.  They were driven into indecision.

No one was Put On A Bus.

________________________________________________________________

Rain.  Grey, cold, penetrating rain.  It was the kind of weather that makes a person want to crawl back under the covers and sleep for the rest of the day.  Storebrand was that kind of person.  Putting her head under the pillow, she tried to block out the sounds of the morning commute.  

She knew that any moment she'd start feeling the inevitable guilt about skipping work.  It always crept up on her, like a heavy weight on her chest.  She always wondered where this dedication to her job came from.  In school, her work ethic left much to be desired, and a streak of anti-authoritarianism made it hard for her to get a job when she left college.  It probably cam from those years when I was living on Ramen noodles and cheap beer, she thought.  That'll make anyone think twice about holding on to a paycheck..

Ah, there it was, the tickle of guilt that starts in the gut, and spreads.  A heavy pressure eased its way across her body.  With a groan, Storebrand tried once more to avoid the facts and escape into her bed.  Hell, maybe she should just play hooky today, skip work and just go where her feet took over. She rolled onto her right side… Maybe five more minutes?  

Or at least, she attempted to roll over.  Snapping awake, she suddenly realized that there was an actual physical pressure on top of her.  With the pillow over her face, she couldn't see what was going on, and began to panic.  A pair of hands held the pillow fast, and Storebrand felt another pair of hands circle her throat.  They tightened, but didn't squeeze.  It was as if they were searching for something.  

The hands dropped to her shoulders, and Storebrand was roughly flipped over onto her stomach.  She heard a voice hiss, "It's time to go to work!  Working is better than sleeping!" as a rough and sticky rope was wrapped around her neck.  It began to tighten slowly, and as she started losing consciousness, the hands began to pull and tear at her pajamas.  She couldn't move, couldn't breathe, and then, with a forceful shove, she could feel—

Storebrand woke with a startled, choked scream.  She was alone.  She raised a hand to her throat, but there was nothing wrapped around it.  She stumbled out of bed, shuffled into the bathroom, stared in the mirror.  Half-asleep eyes gazed back. Her head felt like it was stuffed with cotton.  Work.  Have to go to work, she thought as she wandered back to her bedroom closet and tugged at the door.  She shrugged out of her nightshirt, and began getting dressed.  There was a long day ahead of her, and another one after that.  As she thought about her future, endlessly cut into eight-hour increments, she idly scratched at the back of her neck.

There, in the hairline, were two small bumps.  They itched now, but that would soon fade, just like everything else.

Storebrand has been subsumed.

_____________________________________________________________

"Marvin!"

"Hey there, Bob."

"You got a minute?  Want to get a drink?"

"Sure thing.  There's a bar just around the corner."  

They entered a dimply lit pub, decorated by dozens of mirrors hung on the walls.  Bob grinned at the sight of his reflection bouncing around the room.  "This place is cool!  How come I never heard of it before?"

"It tries to keep itself under the radar.  You know, for the coolness factor."

"Awesome!  Listen, the other night I was playing poker with Jack, and—"

"Hold on a second.  You want a drink first?"

"Yeah, ok."  

Marvin gestured to the spindly bartender, who poured out two small glasses of whiskey.  He passed one over to Bob, and bowed his head.  "Cheers."  With a gulp, they downed the liquor.  Bob shook his head.  "Whoa.  That was rough."

"It gets better the more you go.  Have another."  The glass was immediately filled again.  Before he knew what was happening, Bob had another shot down his gullet.  He looked around the bar, and the reflections weren't as funny anymore.  He and Marvin were duplicated all across the bar, dozens of times.  Dozens of heads.  Dozens of… arms… Why does it look like Marvin has more than one. pair. of.  Oh, shit.

Marvin leaned in close, his black eyes shining bright.  "Here.  Have another."


A Discordian tried to convert the Spider, failed, and was subsumed.  Freeky is out of the game.

tsssssssssss

*drools venom*


Since this game started, I've been staring at spiders a lot more recently.  It is kind of incredible, if you get the chance, to watch a spider construct a web from scratch.  They're kinda genius for that, and the dexterity and fine motor controls they've got are unfathomable.

Uh, I mean down with the spiders :argh!:

have you ever seen a retarded spider?
i mean one that obviously was dosed with some chemical, or had some horrible mutation which prevents it from working right?
i watched this one spider construct a 'web' where he kept going around in the same ring over and over and over.
for, like, 20 minutes, she twiddled her spinnerets continuously for nothing.
terribly frustrating to watch...

I would've just killed it.  No sense letting it increase my universe's entropy.  I mean, it probably wasn't happy.

That Green Gentleman rushed about her room, frantically throwing clothes and other assorted things into a backpack.  She knew they'd be coming for her any minute.  She glanced out her apartment window, and saw the ragged horde marching up the street.  Only five of them left.  Five, she thought to herself.  The universe is an ironic bastard.

She walked swiftly to the back fire escape, and scuttled up to the roof.  She'd have to get away, recoup, find more of her kind somewhere else.  Maybe New Jersey.  At the very least, it was a plan.  Without looking back, she hopped and scrambled her way from building to building, following the setting sun.

The last of the citizens burst through TGG's door, looking wary but angry.  However, it soon became apparent that the last Spider had left town.  Relieved, they all started to smile.  The final strands of oppressive coercion had lifted from their hearts.  They knew that this was the end.  Never again would they feel the soul-sucking ennui.  Never another endless routine of work, eating, sleeping.  And now, they're never going to give it up.  It's never gonna let them down.  Never gonna run around and desert you. Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye, never gonna tell a lie and hurt you.

THE SPIDERS HAVE BEEN DEFEATED. THE GAME HAS ENDED.

In case you were wondering, this is what my spreadsheet looked like by the end of the game:

Well, that was fun.  Now, to review what worked and what didn't, and refine the game mechanics.

First off, MOTHERFUCKING SCRITTENS to LMNO, for the best (IMO) narration in a werewolf-type game I've seen so far!!

(as far as refining game mechanics, I dunno yet, I'm gonna wait for other's remarks and add to that.)

Aww, thanks.

I'll start a new sign up thread, and we can discuss what worked and what didn't.

Yeah, LMNO, that was phenomenal.  The narration made it.  Thanks a bunch.   :D

I can't believe no one has commented on the fact I ended the game with a Rickroll.

Remember when there were enough people to play a game like this?


Remember when we thought it was a joke?



















...Remember when I was able to write a solid paragraph?

Just read through all of this thread. Man, that was a wild ride. Yet somehow Werewolf/Mafia games always seem confusing to me, and not even in the fun way. Curse my brain! :argh!:

...also, I swear LMNO miscalculated the "put on a bus vote number" in one round. Page 29, start of round 4.
13/2 = 6.5
6.5 + 1 = 7.5
7.5 rounded up = 8
8 =/= 7
Not sure if that got corrected but uh...good job there, man :lulz:
Now to binge read the other instances of this game.
