Participation Game - Discussion / Signup

Postby DastardlyOldMan » 11 Oct 2016, 17:59:21

So, after some of CADs comments really hit home last game, I'd like to run a little bit of a variant on vanilla, similar to what we've seen with the "day doesn't end until everyone votes" flavor. I'd like to do a Mandatory Participation game: the thought here is that each player is required to submit n 'posts of substance' each game day (including Day 1, which may be a bit of a challenge, but we'll see). Given that we're a bit more casual bunch, I'm also planning on making each game day last ~2-3 days of real time.

I'm going to be the ultimate judge of 'posts of substance' - but in general, a post that comments on the human/wolf nature of some subset of the player base, with some level of reasoning behind it. The goal here is to generate discussion, but I will penalize those who aren't participating to the expected level.

Penalty votes will not be publicly revealed until the next day's tally.

I'm going to run this with anti-sniping measures (I think I've done this before); the day won't end at any particular set time, and it definitely won't end within 30 minutes of the most recent vote (barring one voter flipping back & forth in an effort to extend end-time).

I'm planning on Vig & GA; no Seer; slightly lower wolf count than the 3:1 ratio that we typically see.

I realize this won't appeal to everyone, but I wanted to throw the option out there. The longer days and probably-lower-player count makes me think that it could run in parallel to another game, assuming the other-game GMs are OK with that.

Thoughts on format? Interest?

The theme will most likely be some kind of Senate or Council setting, where talking is a way of life.

So, to be clear, this is not necessarily the next up TWG, this will be an extended signup thread for discussion; DOM will start the game when he sees fit since he'd like to run it parallel to another GM's wolf game.

Also, in.

I came to post something similar. Quantity, I can do, but quality is a very subjective term. If we are doing a senate floor style game, I'd like to think I could bring the fillibuster though.

More discussion with a longer day length? Sounds good. Count me in.

I feel like this is going to be fun.

Quick question: is this envisioned to run parallel to another game?

A friend in DC thinks he can get me actual close caption files from senate fillibusters. I figure, why not?

Tentatively IN, depending on timing. The slower pace makes it more tolerable to my schedule at the moment.

Starting a new job and lots of catching up to do. Sadly I'll be out for the next few rounds while I acquaint myself with the new world.

So with DOM running this in parallel to another game, is CAD or rekard up? Or am I up?

If only there was an Overlord in charge of keeping track of the GM list... Maybe you should appoint someone, Omega? :eyebrow:

Hey! Just because the list falls behind doesn't mean I'm not staying on top of things; I've already contacted rekard and he had implied he would be putting a signup thread up soon....

I'll officially update the list, but rekard should be next.

Ryvvn does a bang up job. That said, there is a reason I don't want to be responsible for that thing!

I tease, of course. The opportunity to make a smart-ass comment was too good to pass up. :twisted:

I can play depending on the setup since I'm GMing. I could be too busy with GM duties.
