The Thing: Evolution (Playing Thread)

Postby Friday » Sun Jun 04, 2017 5:53 pm



Doctors. Doctors will save you, this time.

If they don't let their own paranoia and insanity drive them to doom everyone, that is.

12 poor souls trapped in an arctic wasteland.

Grath
Newbie
Caithness
Hardly Ideal
Kazz
Kayma
Mothra
Leeham
Niku
Sharkey
fbm
Zara

4 Dynamite.
2 Flamethrowers.
2 Doctors.
1 Paranoid Doctor.
1 Insane Doctor.
2 Things.

The hunt begins.

Niku has the Wire. He may, at his discretion, test anyone except himself.

Each player has one Hammertime. Days last 48 hours. Each hammertime used extends the day by 24 hours.

Dynamite may not be thrown today.

Day 1 has no time limit.

Role PMs going out now.

All roles sent.

If you somehow did not get a PM from me, let me know via PM or in #finalfight.

It is now Day 1.

Voting is now open. All players check in.

(I'll be back in two days to advance the game.)

Don't worry, guys; I'm sure the medical profession will save us.

It just occurred to me: while I'm gone during day 1, I'm allowing the players to self-report.

Niku can use his test, and you guys can vote test. Whoever is the recipient of those tests, please state, in bold, what you are.

Do not report anything other than Human/Thing. Do not reveal if you have a weapon or are a doctor.

You can advance to night 1 (and send in your Doctor scries, flames, and Thing turns) this way while I'm gone. The game will have to pause there for my return if you get that far.

I'll be reminding the flamers each night that they need to send me a PM every night, even if they're burning nobody.

I'm an insane drunk paranoid human doctor thing with dynamite and a flamethrower and an overdeveloped sense of grandeur checking in.

Also, in character, I am a human.

Voting to test Niku out of some perverted sense of symmetry.

Alright, it's been long enough that I don't remember. Are we voting on the person who Niku is supposed to use the wire on (in which case Niku is an invalid voting subject; can't test himself), or are we voting on a second test aside from Niku's, and his is a bonus? I'm pretty sure it's the former, right?

Also, guys, we have so many fucking doctors. So many.

do we have patience for all these doctors!

anyway, Newbie, there are two tests. Niku's test is at his discretion, and the other test is the public vote.

Can a thing even have the wire on the first night? That seems just fucked up enough to be true in this ever changing world in which we live in. You know, the one where we revere Paul McCartney as a great songwriter. I'm voting we wire the wireholder. Paul McCartney Niku.

Well, at least until someone can show me why that's a bad idea with math. Because I bet you can, zara. Punk this whole thing with some straight up numbers. We who are of

As a paranoid insane doctor, I fear the coming of Cthulhu. Thus, I agree that we should test Niku just in case.

Clearing the guy with the wire sees like a good place to start. Niku.

Still waiting on Hardly Ideal. Day One may not have a time limit, but that's no reason to dawdle!
