Re: RMM25: Buffy/Angel Mafia (N0 - D1 starts June 9)

The air is full of tension at Hyperion Hotel. The paranormal detective agency named "Angel Investigations" has retreated to their headquarters after their last, unsuccessful fight with their archenemies at Wolfram&Hart.

"This is too much for us to handle. Don't you see that?", yells Cordelia. "This time, we cannot win on our own. Wolfram&Hart is about to open a portal to a hell dimension, giving all kinds of unspeakable horrors way to Los Angeles, and there is nothing we can do about it!"

"And what do you suggest we do?", asks Angel. "We've already contacted everyone that owes us a favor in LA. Everyone is too afraid to support us, expecting to be crushed."

"There is a way, and you know it."

"What? No, no way. You can't possibly... I'm sure they have enough to deal with themselves. This is not an option."

"Angel - I don't know what happened there between you and Buffy, and honestly I don't want to know. But we need her here. And if you're too afraid to ask her, then I certainly will."

And with these words, Cordelia runs to the telephone, leaving Angel sitting in his chair, stunned.

It is daily routine, but Buffy knows blowing off some steam will be good for her right now. She doesn't know where the vampire hides, but he should be somewhere on this graveyard. Stake in her hand, she rushes from gravestone to gravestone, trying to feel the presence of the undead. Suddenly, a melody plays from her pocket. Her mobile phone. "Dammit", mutters Buffy.

"Yes, who's there? I'm kinda busy, you know." A sudden movement behind Buffy makes her turn around.Two vampires obviously heard her phone ringing and stand right before her. Buffy kicks the left one in stomach, striking for the other one with her stake.

"Cordelia! How have you been? No sorry, I'm not really in the mood for small talk. So what's the matter?" Buffy does a backflip to evade the vampires attack, attaining a defensive postion behind one of the gravestones.

"Permanent darkness, you say? Sounds interesting." The vampires now close in on Buffy from both sides. Buffy puts the hand that doesn't hold the mobile on the gravestone, pushes herself up, and with a spread of her legs kicks both the attacks in the face.

"Well, as you might know, we have our very own gate to a hell dimension here at Sunnydale." With that, she jumps one of her attackers who was pushed to the ground by her kick, and drives the stake through his heart. The vampire dissolves to a could of dust, but at that moment, the other vampire jumps Buffy from behind, pushing her to the ground.

"Ugh... yes, of course I can how that's dangerous. Can't you deal with that on your own though? I thought you guys were like the Avangers of LA." Buffy rams her elbow into the attacking vampire's chest, then turn around to face him. His teeth draw closer to Buffy's throat.

"Okay, fine. We'll just leave the Hellmouth unattended for a couple of days. This better be worth it." Buffy's knee hits the vampire's private parts hard, and she uses his moment of pain to get on top of him.

"I'll tell the gang, sure. No problem. See you then." With that, see stakes the other attacker. Behind the gravestones she senses more movements. This is going to be a long night...

Okay, claiming time.

I have a restriction which limits the amount of times I can vote per day. If I overstep this amount, bad things will happen. That's all I'll say about it.

I don't think it's a big deal, it basically just means I can't participate in RVS.

Thoughts?

I think that while silverspawns claim basically says nothing, it's at least some kind of attempt to move away from RVS before it even happens. Aside from hockeysemlan...

My role cares about other people's flavor names. How does everyone feel about the benefits/drawbacks to flavor name claiming?

Hmm I guess I don't care much. But I don't know flavor so I'm not sure if I would be giving something important away.

so, what do other people think about flavor claims?

Setup says
Quote from: setup
6. Flips, flavor and role names
Each role comes with a flavor name from either of the series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel". It also comes with a role name that gives a short flavorful description of what the role does. These role names need not follow established terminology.
and
Quote from: setup
Flavor knowledge is not required (though helpful) to play the game.

to me, that sounds like scum!who!knows!the!flavor could gain information about which players are more likely to be powerful PR's. I don't think that's worth the risk.

I don't know how important chairs' role is though. If he thinks it's a big enough advantage, maybe we can do it.
