Between Life and Death

To infiltrate the town, only masters of disguise will do.

Between Life and Death

Postby necklessone » 02 Mar 2015, 05:31:31

tl;dr Flavor in this post, rules in the second.

The last thing you can remember is the smoke. You thought the burning would have been the worst but the experience of drowning in the searing fumes...well, it was certainly the worst moment in your short life.

But it's over now and you're floating in some sort of grey void. Maybe the Lord hasn't gotten around to calling you yet? You've got to be a shoe in for heaven; you were just murdered in his name!

"Doesn't that bother you?" A voice whispers from just over your shoulder. A little, you admit to yourself as you try and figure out how to turn. With a sort of dog paddle, you are now face to face with an angry black cloud. It's almost comforting.

"You don't have to go on, you know." The cloud pulses as it speaks. You like this cloud. "You can go back with my help. We'll gather our allies and get revenge." Wow, that does sound good. Hey, the cloud is getting closer.

"Open your mind," the cloud says. "And also your mouth." And suddenly your drowning again, but this time the vapor is cold. And it claws at your lungs with sharp little talons.

Welcome to the dark side, you poor soul. By spilling your innocent blood, the town has awakened the evil they thought they were preventing. An evil that is consuming you and urging you to avenge yourself.

For today, I need four things from you:

  • Choose the form of the destroyer: I'll need you to choose what kind of monsters are attacking the townsfolk. You can go for a classic like werewolves, or you can choose something completely random (giant sentient kiwis) and watch as I roll with it.

  • Harvest the souls: Choose 4 players to be the enemy team this game. Once the selection is made I will add them to this forum.

  • Empower the darkness: Choose which additional powers you'd like to see added to the game. You may choose more than one.
    • Lovers: Two lovers will be chosen randomly. If one lover dies, so does the other. Lovers may be human or enemy.
    • Additional Enemy + Seer + Miller: You would get to choose a fifth enemy teammate. The human team will receive a seer and a miller (a human who seers as a wolf). If you do not choose this option, the humans will not have a seer.
    • Vote Manipulation: The enemy team and two human players will receive some sort of vote manipulation powers.
  • Revenge or peace: Decide whether you'd like to be added to the dead at the end of the day or if you'd like to stay in the enemy forum. If you leave, you'll be just like any other dead. If you stay, you'll be able to post in here. You do not count for the parity victory.

Choose the form of the destroyer.

I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never ever possibly destroy us... Marshmallow Peeps.

(We'll actually go with Chicken Boo and his cousins. Giant Chickens in Disguise)

Empower the darkness.

Forty years of darkness? Earthquakes? volcanoes? That seems a bit much.

Empower the next two weeks of darkness, then.

That's a bit more reasonable. So, when you say vote manipulation, will the two humans who have vote manipulation know there's another human manipulator at play?

Answer hazy. Wait for the Good Reverend.

Okay. In the meanwhile, let's go with the extra Chicken combo platter.

It's Miller Time?

You made the pun, not me.

The humans will know there's more than one manipulator. Extra chicken plus seer and decoy, coming up.

I'm s little said I don't get to use the confectionary golems of Staïp Ouef, but this is going to be fun too.

Harvest the souls.

Harvest? Yick. I'm having bad flashbacks to my summers back in high school upstate when I'd earn pocket money detasseling.

Harvest the souls, or burn some more.

Um... more?

Yes.

Well... okay, then. I think it's only fair to get Caesar and Cato on board, since they've already got the plumage. rekard is already pure evil, so he's in. We'll bring his partner-in-crime Snake in, too. And we'll round out the party with our Bonus Bird: Omega.

Oh, then go for the Golems. I was just trying to make it easier for your narrative.

Well, fine then.

If we're stuck with Giant Chickens, let's make it a real cluster-cluck. Lovers AND vote manipulation.

Revenge or peace?

THERE CAN BE NO PEACE UNTIL REVENGE IS MINE!

Ahem. I mean, revenge please.
