did somebody mention mURDER

It's that time again! Possibly? Happy holidays, it's time for all of your friends to die!! ♥

AKA I'm thinking about running a murdergame come December! I'm thinking the game will start approximately the week of Dec. 6th (very approximately), and will probably last from the beginning to the middle of January. This is a tentative post to see how much interest there is for that timeframe, but also because I'm mulling over two ideas and I'd like to see which one sounds more fun.

Both ideas will work with the standard mafia set-up (mafia and villagers, voting off the weakest link, etc), but with roles tweaked to fit each idea. Both will also have mystery and puzzle solving elements, since how characters will have ended up in their situation is crucial to "winning" each game and escaping.

The concept is vaguely based on a few missions in the Mass Effect series, but which missions those are is a secret! I don't want to ruin the surprise. Characters would be on an abandoned space station, and they would be killing each other for the chance to get to the escape pod, since the AI in charge of the station has locked them out until they reach the arbitrary number of seats in the pod. So for example, given a game of 40, the game will end when 8 people are left alive, since this is how many seats are in the escape pod.

Characters arrive in a mysterious location, and unbeknownst to them, they're all taking part in an experiment on human(oid) psychology. Characters are sorted into test and control groups, though they don't know which is which, nor will they initially know that they're taking place in an experiment. Characters will be encouraged through "experimental methods" to kill each other, though the incentive for characters to kill each other will differ greatly depending on which group they're in.

Comment here with which idea you prefer, and your whether you'd definitely be able to play or might be able to play! Characters are optional, though I'd like to hear it, haha. This is definitely not a commitment, since I'm just gauging interest to see how feasible it is for me to run as compared to some other things I'm interested in!

i vote hard sci-fi... that sounds fun

ALSO I'M NOTICING EVERYONE ELSE IS LEAVING MORE SUBSTANTIATIVE COMMENTS SO i'm not actually sure if i'll be able to participate, since my job means i'm away from a computer for 8 hours at a time almost every day... but the spirit is willing ok

UGHHH I CAN'T PICK... I do like the hard sci-fi idea tho. I might be able to play!! If I do I'll probs give Kashuu a break and bring in someone from the Assorted Shitheads Collection.

Hard sci-fi sounds like fun but so does unethical experimentation... And when I think about the characters I want to play, experimentation sounds like the better option?

I'm coming no matter which you pick though YOU CANNOT KEEP ME AWAY. I'm thinking either Gi-ne again or Vegeta or maybe even yet another dumb saiyan, who knows?

Britt here! Unless something major comes up in the next month or so I should definitely have the time to play in December/January. They both sound really interesting, but personally I'm a little more interested in hard sci-fi. I'm debating Elodie from Long Live the Queen, because she just hasn't been killed in enough different ways already.

...or maybe Sei Tominaga from Kaze Hikaru because I can't get enough of Shinsengumi crossdressers i guess dammit

BOTH SOUND GREAT... i don't know Mass Effect but i think maybe sci fi is what I'd lean into? I'm also definitely interested, yes

this is lucy voting hard sci fi!! THOUGH...THEY BOTH SOUND FUN...so i like either way...SO COUNT THIS AS A "CAN'T EVEN PICK" VOTE, I GUESS

as to definitely in or not, i probably can be? :|a and as to who...uh. the top possibilities are riza hawkeye from fma, cress darnel from the lunar chronicles, sonia nevermind from sdr2, aradia megido from homestuck, orrrrr nah from fire emblem. almost assuredly one of those five, i think!!

edit: or ibuki mioda, because she's ridiculous and i miss her, too. this edition of lucy apps murder games is "who do i miss playing the most"

I prefer the experimentation plot honestly! but both are definitely good... Yes...

chara wise, puts hiji in a box... tho i think ive been pretty set on bringing someone from the same series.. which gumi.. who knows im keeping it a secret.......... it is a mystery.png

Although my final exam week literally starts on Dec. 7th.. BUT I think december 6th will still be okay?? I dont think my exams will be that bad prays

this is marion and i vote for unethical experimentation. though i like both.

no clue about character yet. might go with luna from virtue's last reward because we always need a cinnamon roll, but i'd rather see a fleshed out concept before i decide if i can even commit.

[personal profile] gravesite 2015-11-18 05:38 am (UTC)(link)
i'm leaning a bit more towards the experimental one, but they both seem interesting THIS IS A HARD DECISION...

as for who i'm bringing — probably just tsuru again!!

i was 2 lazy to log out of here but i like both!
im more partial to mass effect option since thats my jam but i'd be good with anything tbh!

as for availability i'll be gone from dec 11th - 26th but should have internet access! :9 if for some reason i dont or im unable to fully participate ill def let you know asap so i dont idle out but yes...#down for murder

[personal profile] impheired 2015-11-18 05:41 am (UTC)(link)
BOTH OPTIONS ARE SO GOOD I CAN'T DECIDE? i'll be happy with either but i'm gonna put my vote in for hard sci fi!

unless something significant happens between now and then, i should be able to play this time. not with kuzuryuu, though possibly with a different dangan. or rei from persona q. we just don't know, the setting's probably going to affect my decision.

ESKI HERE... Ideally I should be around and available, though, I'll be operating on UK time for part of December, haha.

As for characters... I'm kind of leaning towards Percy from the Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus series because I miss playing sarcastic teenage protags that need to do the thing despite knowing that doing the thing is probably going to get them killed tbh.

I dare you to ship with my character bc joke is on you Percy is literally canonly unsinkable so bring it

Definitely want to app, so depending on things are around the time of it opening expect me!! With who idk. I have lots of very good options.

[personal profile] ninjawon 2015-11-18 06:06 am (UTC)(link)
omg i know i replied on the plurk but this is probably easier for you to keep track of:

i think i might be able to play!! this is my last semester so my exams aren't that bad but for now i'll just say that I'm def interested!! though if the timeframe shifts to start in january then I won't say no to that either (wow yaywon make up ur mind)

the unethical experimentation one sounds fun! both sound pretty interesting tho

i might bring an obscure otome/sakyou sagihara from ken ga kimi!!! or maybe julian... or maybe juri kuran from vampire knight or tokidoki rikugou from amatsuki... prob someone dumb tho

a quick comment as i run to work which may or may not be edited with more opinions/info bUT I WANT TO BE HERE retail hell will kill me almost definitely?? but i will be here. 8')

depending on the setting picked will decide which character i want to bring I WILL CONSIDER IT AND GET BACK TO YOU just know that both settings are A+ and i would play in either

EDIT: so here i am, i like both settings tbh, so whichever you decide to go with i'll definitely app to. i'd be leaning more toward bringing hinata back for the sci-fi, and bringing pekoyama to the experimentation one. because? just because. i'd hope you'd eventually run both settings! but if you only ran one, i'd have to lean toward sci-fi because i think in the plurk you mentioned that one would have a little more mystery-solving involved. ANYWAY i'm hype.

edit edit: or i could bring a love live. or i could bring both. who knows.

Just to say, both will have mystery solving elements, don't worry!! That's a new mechanic I'd like to try out based on feedback I got in shiptrap about the villagers not having much to do, haha.

i'm interested but i'll be traveling (with wifi accessibility) around new year to mid jan. So my activity will drop then but I should be there for all the crucial bits.

ALSO. I like both ideas omg, but leaning towards hard sci-fi. i'll think who to bring but if saving on time i'm gonna bring this loser with an easy to kill body (wait)
