Game XC: My Three Benders

Postby Okaros » 10 Dec 2015, 17:30:09

or alternatively: "A Tale of Betrayal in Old New New York"

Good news, everyone!

I've managed to repair and upgrade my stem cell vat, so now you can go on many deliveries at once! We'll just create a few clones of you and presto! everything's nice and safe. And with these special communicators I've invented, you'll be able to securely communicate with your clones across the entire galaxy, using your unique Delta Brain Wave frequency. That way you won't have to worry about your clones getting into mischief without you.

Speaking of mischief, I've added a failsafe to each of your clones: If the original you dies, all your clones will die too. That way, they can't be used to create an unstoppable clone army that conquers the entire Universe. Isn't that wonderful?

Just sign this form here and step over to this booth and we'll get started with the not-at-all invasive and painful tissue sample collection procedure!

This is an Everyone's Special game.

End of Day will be 10pm Eastern.

Day Zero begins as soon as I get things set up. Day One Begins 10pm SUNDAY (12/13) and Ends Monday at 10pm.

The usual, default rules apply (more details to follow in the formal rules thread that I'll be creating). PMs will not be available in this game.
-----

Each of you will be playing a character from Futurama, to be assigned and announced at the start of Day One.

The twist? There will be more than one of you playing the same character. One person shall be the original. When they're killed, all of their clones will die with them.

Each character will have a power, and every person playing that character will have their own individual copy of that power to do with as they please.

Each of the characters will also have a shared subforum they can use to communicate with each other via their Delta Brain Wave Communicators. Except for Fry. He doesn't get a subforum since he doesn't have a Delta Brain Wave.

Characters and general types of powers potentially available for play, depending on number of signups:

Characters:
Leela
Fry
Bender
Zoidberg
Hermes
Amy
Zapp
Kif

Powers*:
Vig shots
Knockouts
Spying powers
Communication powers
Vote manipulation
Power Blocking
Power-targeting seers (see who a person targeted, or who targeted a person, or some variation thereof)

There will NOT be:
A GA or any revival powers
A Role or Team Seer

*Note: These are themes for the powers. Multiple types of the same theme could be present, but with different mechanics/effects/etc...

For those that might be worried about the game running long/into Christmas, I think the added lethality of this game should keep the pace up quite nicely. :)

If you're on The List, you should now be able to see the Employee Lounge (and only the Lounge). If you're seeing anything else, please let me know.

Yes, your assigned character will be part of the public Player Roster.

It's worth noting, however, that powers will not be revealed on death. You'll have to figure out what people can do on your own, though some will be more obvious (vig shots) than others (spying powers).

Team affiliation and status as an original/clone will still be revealed on death.


And in case anyone is worried: There's no mandatory RP burden anywhere here, the character assignments are for thematic purposes only.

Not going to be able to run this with just 8 players, so hopefully others will sign up before it's too late. :(

Currently at 10, would need at least 12 for the game to be interesting/fun so that's the bare minimum for launch. Holiday season is rough. :(

I've sent two email blasts already, another seems overkill. I did PM Blind shortly after he posted in the other thread, he hasn't picked it up.


With the addition of Smirker, we're at 12, so I'll get things started shortly.

If at least one more person shows up late I can add you (Blind) and San as well and avoid disrupting things.

(Due to past history, I'm in the camp that doesn't particularly trust the perpetual-in list. :( )
