Oh I fully expect my existence to be nasty brutish and short. I really haven't got my brain around the set up at all but Kuru deserved a bit of support.

So, since I suspect we won't get one more person before tomorrow, I am toying with the idea of eliminating the second visitor role to broaden the pool of ordos and seeing if that will work with 12.

What does the group think?

I think that would make it more workable for a smaller group, yeah.

Well, I'm not on Facebook so I certainly didn't.

Not hearing any dissenting voices, I will reduce the number of visitors to one. I think the one I will keep will be the Visitor that Dies.

I will wait until tomorrow to send out roles, just in case.

I will again, like last time, be relying on Excel to randomly pick the wizards.

I will, however (and this is an important note), allow people to decline the role of wizard since it is an involved one.

I have a birthday party to attend tomorrow afternoon so I probably won't be sending roles until late tomorrow US time.

I did, and then it got reposted. So people have heard. Also btw we pestered Nog and Greenie this weekend again; I'm not sure if they wanted to join still or not. Should check.

But hey. This all being said, does it mean we are starting now? Because then I am not sure about my participation. I am on holiday the upcoming week and basically traveling a lot, so if it starts now, I am going to be like 99% unavailable until next Sunday. I sorta counted with that it would start only later, when I am safely back. Well it might mean missing like three days, which with these numbers means... not sure if it's worth it for me to take part if it starts immediately. (That said, not sure how many people are aware that this is starting now. Better re-contact them... I just warned Lommy, but not everyone checks the 'Downs regularly these days.)

I had intended to start today, but I'm not opposed to putting it off.

I mainly wanted to start before July because Lalaith indicated that she might not be able to play if we waited too long to begin so we're kind of in a bind where we might lose people either way.

Oh darlings, please don't rush on my account, I'm sure I could hang on for a few days...
How long do you think the game would go on for, Kuru? Things might get tricky for me from around July 20th, should I be spared for that long....

It could run for a full week at the absolute limit...which would probably be an absolutely awesome game...but it is unlikely that it will last that long. Probably four or five days would be a realistic expectation.

For me personally it would be better to wait until after June 30 as I've got a work trip on June 29-30 which wouldn't preclude me from posting, but would make it more difficult.

Ok. I'm in, if it's still possible to sign in - and let's hope Greenie gets her problem solved as well.

I mean who could withstand the lure of the Dueling Wizards?

Ha! See, folks, patience pays off

And yes, hopefully if we wait a bit, Greenie's account can also get sorted out.

That would be also ideal for me; I am back on the 2nd, but obviously if there is a Night 1 first, or even if there's already Day 1 before it, it should not be such a big deal (I should be able to check and make one post or whatever, just not anything very much commited until I am back).

***

Regarding the rules - which I have finally read - few random questions, Kuru:

Can a dead Good Wizard talk to dead Gifteds? (Same way as when they are alive, i.e. through you?)

What exactly happens if by some unfathomable means the Good Wizard selects the Evil Wizard as a Visitor? Will they get a message "sorry, error" or basically "ok, you didn't make a Visitor, but you scryed an Evil Wizard", or..?

And so what is the final thing about the Evil Wizard killing people? So can the Evil Wizard actually make kills alone, or are the WWs required for that?

Yes, since we don't need to start this week, sign ups are still open.

We will need to close them no later than July 7 in order to get the game rolling in time. Might end it on July 1 depending on what people think.

Quote:

Since the Netherworld is kind of a dream state anyway, I think that the Good Wizard can PM the Hunter and the Ranger if they are in the Dead Thread whenever. By that point everyone will know who the Good Wizard is anyway. I will clarify that in the rules.

EDIT: This only applies to the Hunter and Ranger. The Good Wizard may not PM either Visitor.

Quote:

If either Wizard tries to directly act upon the other Wizard in any way their identities are revealed. I will also clarify that in the rules.

Quote:

I think the rule is going to be that the Evil Wizard can make kills once he/she has made a wolf.

Posting to see if I have the same problem as A Little Green, who is having difficulty posting here although she can sign in. (ie, not playing--off soon on holiday).

Has there been any progress on Greenie's issue?

I am going to give one more week for signups, but will close them (for real this time) on July 7 as we need to get this show on the road at some point.

You'd be most welcome! It's not exactly an RPG: more like soap opera melded with a savage fantasy/murder-mystery.

If I can be of any help, count me in ... but I'm not really sure how it works. I think I'd need to see it happening to catch on, and I might go wrong if I were participating.

Really, the Dueling Wizards theme is new to me as well. However, reading over previous games is an excellent primer if you haven't already been doing so.

Give it a try, Pervinca. I'd be delighted to mentor you. Unless we end up on different sides, of course...

But if you want to ask any questions about the rules, now is probably a good time.

Just a reminder to everyone that I am closing signups at the end of today.

And a reminder for everyone to please make sure you have space in your PM box. Otherwise I will have to have Hagrid knock down your door to tell you, "Yer a wizard...whomever."

Alrighty, with that I declare signups to be closed.

Roles will go out later today. If I can get confirmation from both wizards we can get NIGHT 1 started at 8 PM US Eastern, which will be the deadline in this game. If not we will have to start NIGHT 1 tomorrow.

Note, I don't live in the Eastern timezone so this is actually more ambitious for me than it may seem.

Since we have 16 players we get to have both Visitors and the Evil Wizard gets four picks (but only three active wolves at any one time).

I have decided that the Good Wizard cannot continue to scry once they reach the Dead Thread. Since the Evil Wizard cannot create any more wolves or scry I thought it fair that the Good Wizard cannot scry.

I believe that is it. Please let me know if I've forgotten anything important.

Again, please make sure your have space in your PM box.

Good luck everyone, and I hope you enjoy the game.

Due to unexpected contingencies, the game will not begin this evening.

But, we will commence tomorrow evening/morning/afternoon/etc. at approximately this time!

Stay tuned!!!

I'm not sure whether I was in or out, but I have to attend a meeting tomorrow evening. So probably best if I just try to observe this one and get the hang of how it works.

Oh you don't have to worry it won't all happen at once because of time differences. Please stay. I don't want to be the only one getting head around the format.

OK, I'm scared, but I'll stay! I'll read the rules again.

Will it happen in this same thread?

There'll be a separate thread for the actual game. This thread will still be open for game-related announcements, and so forth.

Inzil is quite right, there will be two threads posted for this game. One for the Living players and one for the Dead players.

Since each DAY and NIGHT phase lasts for a full 24 hours, there is no need to worry about missing any particular period during those times.

The game threads will be posted in just a few minutes.

A reminder to everyone to please go into your User CP, go to Edit Options, and click the box next to "Use Invisible Mode" to go invisible for the game.

Lucky thing for me, I forgot to uncheck it after the last game.

Although, for me I guess it technically doesn't matter as everyone knows I will be PMing all over the place.

....So that's what happens when I miss Day One.

Terribly sorry I didn't make it. The day ended up being crazier than I anticipated. It shan't happen again!


P.S. Top notch narration, Kuru! I cackled.
