Day Start/Ends:


As you may have noticed Magic is gone, and with no way to defend ourselves various evil beings have invaded the school posing as students and are looking to kill us all. Luckily there are still some various ways of obtaining magical abilities to aid us in this fight. However only ONE person can gain magical abilities from each of these ways.

So before we can start selecting ways to attain magical abilities you will all undergo an Exam composed of two parts, a written exam, and a demonstration. Once that is done you will be ranked based on your performance and be given an opportunity to select a magical power. I want to state no cheating will be allowed during any portion of this process each and every one of you must privately submit your selection to me and if I see anyone working together you will be expelled immediately.




Rules:

This is a game. Everyone who signs up to play must be considerate of each other, never get personal, and focus on having fun. Once the game starts, having signed up is a commitment: inactivity is just as inconsiderate as rude comments. All players must have read, understood, and agreed to the Civility Pledge.

- No communication between players outside of the game thread or shared QTs at any time. This includes passing references, jokes, or cases in other games or threads, whether in context or not.
- If the game thread is locked, do not post. If you are unsure if something is locked, ask the mod by PM.
- Direct or verbatim quoting of mod-provided information is strictly forbidden. Paraphrasing is okay.
- Players must post once every 24-48 hours unless they have an announced V/LA. We are less strict about this than other mods, but please, if you agree to play the game, please play the game.
- Do not edit or delete posts, ever. If you need to clarify or correct something, post again.
- Invisible text, font size less than 10, and spoiler tags are not allowed. Do not use the same font colors as the mods.
- Cryptography is not allowed, which includes coded breadcrumbs. We are more strict about this than other mods. See this post for examples of things I consider to be cryptography. If you are trying to set up some kind of code, it's probably illegal, and you should ask me first.
- The time between a lynch being reached and a flip being provided is called twilight. All players may continue posting during this time, including the lynched player.
- Dead players may not post in thread or QT. A lynched player is not "dead" until a flip has been provided.
- Personal multimedia, such as video or audio recordings, are not allowed in the game thread.


The Voting Rules:
- Votes should be in this format: Vote: Playername. Votes must be bolded, must contain a colon, and there must be space between the colon and the player's name. Improperly formatted votes may or may not be counted, based on mod disrection. Unambiguous nicknames are acceptable.
- Unvotes should be in this format: unvote or Unvote: Playername.
- Unvotes are not required if changing your vote from oneplayer to another.
- You may vote: no lynch.
- Lynches occur when a simple majority (rounded up) of living players is reached. Once reached, a lynch cannot be undone.


The Rest:
- If you have an issue or problem with the game, please PM the mods. Do not post complaints in the game thread.
- Mods make mistakes - please point them out gently. If they can be corrected, they will. If irreversible, they will stand as final to be commiserated over after the game.
- Ask all questions and make all requests directly to the Mod via QT or PM. Questions deemed as "universal" (defined as questions for which the answers should be available to all players) will be requested to be re-posted in the Game Thread and answered there.
- Prods will be issued by request after 24-48 hours of inactivity unless otherwised covered by a VLA. Players are subject to replacement or modkill upon the third prod request.
- All rule violations will be dealt with according to their severity, as determined by the mod.


Deadlines:
- Days will last seven IRL days.
- Nights will generally last two IRL days, but might in certain cases last longer.

Other Games / Fire Emblem Heros
« on: February 09, 2018, 12:42:27 pm »
Hey anyone on here play Fire Emblem Heros? It's a silly mobile game but it does have some enjoyable fire emblem tactics and character/team building is enjoyable. Most of the game is played against developer generated maps so whales that spend tons of money to get better units aren't a problem like they are in most similar mobile games. The only time you compete against other players is in the arena and their team is still controlled by the ai so if you are smart you can still work around most whale teams.

I ask because I have accrued most of the best units in the game and need help theory crafting multiple teams. This was the best place I knew with people who would enjoy doing that.

If you don't play the game but enjoyed any other fire emblem games I would suggest giving it a try. The main story is essentially a fire emblem game except you can only deploy four units per map and movement is slightly different (armored 1, infantry/flier 2, cavalry 3). Most characters are obtainable as 1-5 star units and you can increase a units star using feathers which are not a super rare resource. Finally all characters have a base kit of a weapon, support or movement ability, special, and some of an A/B/C/D skill. You summon new units from rotating banners where you have an increased chance to get a few 5 star units an I have found orbs which you use to summon are also not a rare resource if managed even slightly.

The advanced level of play and where I am looking for some help comes in when it comes to bane/boon of units and skill inheritance. Each unit when summoned has a randomly increased and decreased stat making even duplicate units slightly different and you can get rid of any unit to give 3 of their skills to a different unit. This makes creating the theoretical "best" units very very subjective as two of the same characters with different stats could be better suited to four totally different skills and play a totally different role in a team.

General Discussion / Game of Thrones (show) [spoiler warning]
« on: July 17, 2017, 09:44:20 am »
Hey so I really enjoyed the survivor thread where people discussed their thoughts on current episodes and I'm sure there are lots of game of thrones fans that would enjoy doing the same.

I figure the thread has one big spoiler warning so no need to use spoiler tags unless it's for book specific knowledge which pure show watchers may or may not want to know. Assume when coming to the thread that you have seen the most recently aired episode.

I would love to discuss everything from plot theories and thoughts to episode structure and directorial decisions.

General Discussion / Rowing
« on: October 14, 2014, 01:11:23 pm »
So I was rereading the swimming and running threads and realized there are a lot of athletes on here with good advice and ideas so I thought I would make a thread about my recent passion of rowing.

I just started rowing recently with a standard machine to build up the base muscles and I want to transfer into rowing in open water(my city has a club) next spring.

I was wondering if there were any other rowers on the forum or people that have used rowing machines and what their opinions are.

Forum Games / Power Roles
« on: March 14, 2014, 11:09:49 am »
So I was bored and wanted to come up with some interesting power roles to discuss. I'm not sure if any of these exist or not just going off what comes to mind.

Empower - each night you may target a player and any night actions they would take now become an empowered version of that power. Examples of empowered actions are;
Cop: results of your copping will be revealed by the mod upon request
Doctor: now gives one shy bulletproof as well
Tracker/watcher: now gives an action history chronicling all actions from prior nights
Reloader: now gives more shots
Neighborizer: the mod will instead create a masonry
Vigilante: your shot becomes strongman
Those are just a few examples of what it could do

Shield generator - each night you may place a shield on a player which returns any actions that would target them to the player who originally used he action

Mail carrier - 3 times during the day you may send the mod a message to be sent to another player(hiding your identity but being sent from confirmed town or may send a message directly to another player but no confirmation of alignment, or hidden sender an alignment)

Live/death roles - obviously we have roles regulated by day/night and even/odd, but I love the idea of regulating roles by alive/dead for example;
Doctor: each night you will target a player to "medicate" upon death, all players who have been medicated will be protected for 2 night(upped to 2 to account for the potential that your targets die before you) the intent being instead of a chance to protect each night, you have no protection while alive but tons of protection after you die.
Cop: while alive you will receive no results of your coppings, upon death all of your results will be revealed to the town

Coward - upon death the mod will randomly chose another town player to take your place.

Hero - upon lynch of any player you may(or compulsive) chose to take that players place, their alignment will not be revealed. Potentially compulsive D2 or D3 Hero

Please read
The Civility Pledge before signing up for this game. If you have not /pledged there, you cannot play here.

Excessive personal attacks or uncivil behavior may be dealt with by modifiers or modkills.


General Gameplay and Etiquette:

1. You may not quote private Moderator-supplied information (either real or fabricated) of any kind. Paraphrasing (for role claims, etc.) is acceptable.
2. Personal communication outside of the forum postings is NOT ALLOWED unless your Role PM specifically allows it.
3. If you have a role with a Night action, your choices are due to all mods by the posted deadline (generally 48 hours from Night start during the first few Nights; later Nights may have shorter deadlines). If we do not receive your choice via PM by the posted deadline you will forfeit your actions. In case of multiple submissions, the last valid one before the deadline will be used. Generally, one team member may submit the Night Actions for all team members.
4. Roles with Night actions will not be able to submit an action on Night 0 (i.e. during the confirmation stage), unless your Role PM specifically allows it.
5. Any player with a Night action may instead submit a “No Action” PM to let the Mods know that you do not want to perform your expected action that Night phase, unless your Action is compulsory.
6. As a general rule you should aim for one post every 24 hours, minimum, to keep the game moving.


Voting, Deadlines, and Player Death:

1. A simple majority (rounded up) of all living members must agree on one person for a lynch to occur prior to deadline.
2. Once you have reached a simple majority no further unvoting will change someone’s fate. Further votes will also be ignored.

5. Please submit vote revocations as either Unvote: PlayerName or Unvote. Unvotes are not necessary before changing votes.
6. You may Vote: No Lynch - a simple majority of these vote types are required to send the game to Night phase without a lynch.
7. Once you are killed (either via lynch or night kill) you may no longer post in the game or in Quicktopics, except for twilight. This means that you do not even get a “Bah” post. The dead in this game are silent, but will be invited to the Spectator Quicktopic.
8. Do not edit or delete posts. We don't want some players having more information than others. If you want to clarify posts, feel free to double post.

4. Please bold all requests to the Mods so that they don’t get missed.
5. Prods of missing players will be issued automatically after 48 hours of no activity or upon request after 24 hours of no activity. A prodded player has 48 hours to respond or risks replacement. A player who has been prodded 3 times is subject to replacement without further notice.
6. Rule violations will be dealt with according to their severity, up to and including a Modkill.

General Discussion / Gold Ranking: AMA
« on: August 06, 2013, 12:09:07 pm »
So I was figuring out where to post this and I decided a new thread would be nice.

I just recently achieved Gold V in league of legends after about 100 ranked games.

As the topic says, this is an AMA, it is meant to be league related but it doesn't have to be exclusive to that.

Introductions / Hurray Introductions!
« on: March 25, 2013, 03:01:40 pm »
So most of this is probably going to be repetitive but oh well.

I am Robz888's younger brother. I live in east Lansing Michigan and am turning 21 in 29 days. This is true despite my claim of being 19 in my first ever mafia game. I actually said it mistakenly while explaining that I was young and innocently nervous, hence my scummynes(i was scum) I have never been so scared that robz would realize I lied about my age and call me out on it, then I couldn't decide if me correcting myself would be scummy anyway and decided to leave it. Luckily robz is a horrible person and didn't realize I'm not 19(just distracting from the fact that me forgetting how old I am is waaay more embarrassing)

I am in college studying interpersonal communication and want to do anything involving people!

I was an alright dominion player when I started and played often enough to remember what cards did. I lost interest and started taking long breaks in between bouts of play. Most recently I have not played for a looong time, I was unaware iso had gone down. I have started playing on goko but still getting the hang of things(its going much slower without robz tutelage)

I am an extremely dedicated League of Legends player, and have played most well rated free to play online games. Be it shooter, mmo, turnbased, or rts I play a wide variety of games. My musical tastes run as wide and varied as my gaming tastes however the "talent" is sadly located fully in the later.
