For all those books that have gone out of print and been eliminated from the game.  Also for general chatter among the players.  Remember, don't give anything away here!

I consider us both well behind; my brother and father are reading "A Dance With Dragons", the latest book... As are all but like, two of my friends who are also reading, who are on the book before it, I do believe.

I can't wait to see what HBO does with the story.  If the series follows the books at all, it's just going to get more awesome.

I'm doing good. Vacation time is coming up soon and we're still deciding on where to go. As the purse strings are tight we're considering Wales, we've got accommodation ready and waiting for us (free always a good thing) and there's tons to do there. We'll be on the coast - diving and surfing (or failing miserably at the latter >.< )

we're taking lessons at the moment which honestly don't seem to be helping much at all lol but all still fun
We're debating whether or not to head into Cardiff to watch Wales play England as well but we had only planned on staying for 7 days, the rugby game would push us in to 9 as we're going by ferry. So might have to rethink that part.
I won't get excited until we've made the bookings  ::)

I had to Google a couple of the character choices myself, so I wouldn't be surprised if some of them are a little difficult to guess.  In some cases, guessing roles in the game might be easier.  :D

Someone reminded me of a party game I played in high school.  The names of fictional characters were printed on pieces of paper and pinned to the guests backs.  Each guest had to figure out by the way people talked to them who they were supposed to be.

So, shall we add a time limit for votes, as in Remiel's game?  It isn't so bad when it's this sort of vote, but for the lynch votes we'll want a little more speed, I think.  :)

I say be lenient on the first vote (this one) then add a limit.  Probably 5 days to a week, in my opinion.

I think waiting until everyone has voted is a good idea for the first round.  That way, no matter what happens the rest of the game, it gives everyone some data on which to base their decisions, no matter how trivial or inconsequential.

Okay, we'll call that final for the Librarian vote, unless FoamWeber votes in the next hour or so while I'm getting myself organized.  :)

Otherwise, from now on we'll have a seven-day voting cycle -- that is, voting ends either when the time is up or when everyone has voted.  Once we have fewer people, I'll probably adjust it down to five or six days, unless that starts causing problems.

In the meantime, feel free to mingle and try to guess characters if you like.  :)

Anyway, I have a sig image for this game -- about time, right?  It links to the main thread.

Sorry for the delay -- I was without power for much of Friday, and also without internet afterwards, even once the electricity was sorted out, so I'm still playing catch-up.  *sigh*  But hopefully we can find a steadier pace now.

Night roles, please send in your choices!   :D

Only one antagonist left?!  Dammit!  If this ends too early, you must run this theme again.  I love it! :D

Well. I should start getting mt thread up... If this trend continues, this one is going to end sooner than planned. Anyone else want in? Link to the planning is in my Signature, click the shakespeare quote. Now to go find what I've already written and go post up stuffs.

And Val- Please do run this one again! This looks like it's going WAY too fast.

I don't know if that counts as epic... but it was certainly fun to write.  :)

And I think that's the shortest game ever, though at least there was a lot packed into those few rounds...

... Wtf.

H'ok. I'll finish setting up this weekend and start my game on monday. JEEZE, this was a short game. Well played.

And can I just say, i'm proud of myself this game? Beguile's was my next day vote. Meaning I was going to vote for antagonists two of the days. I didn't suspect kyrsa, but I was kinda responsible for her death :D

I was Rebecca, the first Mrs. de Winter, from Daphne du Maurier's novel "Rebecca."

She was dead, of course, by the start of the story but she made no less of an impact for that.

For those of you that didn't see the post regarding the early reveal of my character, I was Luna Lovegood (though I don't feel I did her justice, bleh) from Harry Potter. (though, in hindsight, Hermione would have been a better choice, considering we're in a library. Ah, well.)

*bows to Remiel's demands*

And other people's demands.  I'll run the theme again a little later on, once Analise's game starts winding down.  So everyone can ponder new characters.  ;D

Here's the play by play, which, short as it is, is still fascinating:

Day one:
Marguerite, a Protagonist, is lynched.

Night one:
The Antagonists target FoamWeber, a Protagonist.
The Detective investigates Imogen, an Antagonist.
The Matchmaker makes FoamWeber and Kyrsa the Lovers.
The Guardian protects himself.

Day two:
Imogen, an Antagonist, is lynched.

Night two:
The Antagonist targets Remiel, the Guardian.
The Detective investigates That Girl Analise, the Matchmaker.
The Guardian protects himself.
The Alchemist targets Beguile's Mistress, an Antagonist.

I've never seen that particular situation with the Cupid role, and probably never will again.  When I realized what had happened, I spent several seconds blinking at the screen in amazement.  Heh.  But all the good luck was with the Protagonists, and all the bad with the Antagonists, so not a very long game, unfortunately.  Still, I'm glad you all enjoyed it, and I'm sure the next one will be longer.  :)



And here, in no particular order, is the cast list with characters and special roles, as applicable:

That Girl Analise - Luna Lovegood (Matchmaker)
---
FoamWeber - Miss Marple
---
Remiel - Jack Sparrow (Brave Soldier)
---
Marguerite - Phantom
---
Ryven - John Taylor
---
Moirae - Titania (Mysterious Killer)
---
Leorobin - Allan Quatermain
---
Kyrsa - Arya Stark (Antagonist)
---
Imogen - Jack Reacher (Antagonist)
---
Beguile's - Rebecca DeWinter (Antagonist)
---
Kendra - Hercule Poirot
---
Aiden - Dr. Watson
---
Falanor - Roland Deschain (Forthright Detective)
---
Josietta - White Queen

I think I figured out Leo was Quartermain and Analise was Luna, but sadly, that's all I did.

OMGosh! I disappear for the weekend and the game ends?! :o

it was awesome though and would love to see this theme again ;)

YAY - I got two characters right  ;D

did consider Captain Jack because of the broken compass but didn't bother checking to see if the movies were based on books or not >.<
silly me  ::)
