  1. The cycle will be extended for 24 hours.
  2. LG49/AN3: Hour 3.5 - Cycles of Anger and Forgiveness Gavilar smiled. “Shall we do this one democratically, perhaps? Whoever has the most votes leaves my presence. Stand if you wish to send Liss away.” One person stood. Then another. And another, and another, and... Thava winced, standing as still as she possibly could against the back wall. If one servant could get kicked out, any could. Gavilar looked at Liss. “Out of my sight.” She bowed, with an indecipherable look on her face, and left. Just as the guards at the entrance were about to close the door behind her, a jaunty figure strolled through. Adolin grinned. “Did you miss me?” As everyone blinked at him, he waved a piece of paper in his hand. “Found this right outside. Anyone have any idea what it means?” Once for ev’ry Parshman slain, Twice for ev’ry shattered plain, Thrice for all Alethi gains, Beat thus the Parshendi refrains. Though in anguish we would fain Have our people thus remain, Forged of iron are our chains, Rise now to Parshendi refrains. The downtrodden who have lain Down and accepted human reign, And toiled for these years in vain, Shall come to Parshendi refrains. All will then hear cries of pain, As the human power wanes, And the pride of men is stained, When beat the Parshendi refrains. Come! let blood from heaven rain, Shatter glass and windowpane, Armed, now as the human’s bane, Parshmen sing Parshendi refrains. All Alethi arise, abandoning asinine aspirations as any assault against an ally angers all. Affronted at all attacks, Adolin argues against an alien as Amaram arms all anguished Alethi, attempting an attack at any adversaries. Arrayed at attention, all Alethi are aggressive, and any audacious aliens are afraid and abscond, angered and anxious, anticipating an attack afterward, again. Liss was ostracised. Adolin has returned from ostracisation. Vote Count Liss (12): Wit, Navani, Amaram, Jasnah, Ash, Restares, Tearim, Ialai, Klade, Elhokar, Drunk Beggar, Thaidakar Hour 3.5 has begun.

  3. LG49/AN3: Hour 3 - Eavesdropping Thara shook her head. Chulls in the palace? The night was growing strange already, and she had a feeling it would only get worse from here. She tried to smile politely as she moved through the crowds, but didn’t feel like she was quite managing. Hopefully, the room was dim enough and people had drunk enough that they couldn’t tell. “Wait - what’s that?” someone said behind her. “Up there!” Thara looked up automatically, then blinked and squinted. Up in the rafters was a shadowy figure. How did they even get up there? she thought. She’d thought she knew all the secret nooks and passageways of the palace... “Guards!” someone else called. “Guards! Go and get that person down immediately!” Great, Thara thought. It was going to be a long night... There will be an ostracism vote this cycle. This cycle will end at 11am BST on Sunday 16th September.
  4. LG49/AN3: Hour 2.5 - A Public Safety Announcement Thara held the drink tray close and tried to blend into the wall behind her. The room was silent, too silent. It had only been a few minutes since the King had spoken, trying to mediate the argument that had riled the room. Accusations thrown out right and left, and not just at nobles. A servant had even been accused. Someone like her. What if someone accused Thara of treachery? She shuddered. And then she saw a fluttering out of the corner of her eye. She glanced to her right, where a piece of paper floated to the floor nearby. Bending (and, remarkably, keeping drinks on the tray), she picked up the paper. Hello, Ladies and Gentlemen. This is a public safety announcement for all attenders of the "Treaty Party." It appears as though we have had an infestation of chulls in the palace. It is not entirely clear how they got in the palace, but a bunch of chulls and chull larvae are wandering around the palace. Repeat, chulls in the palace. Please do not aggravate or slaughter the chulls as we attempt to remove them carefully from the palace. Thank you for your patience. Most things you see in here are misdirection, fluff, and red herrings. Or perhaps just regular red chickens, since we’re on Roshar. Or red chulls? Who knows? She was so confused, she missed Adolin Kholin, that handsome prince, leaving the palace. Adolin was ostracised. Hour 2.5 has begun. It will end Thursday, the 14th of September, at 8am BST (1am MDT) Vote Count Adolin (6): Torol, Ialai, Aesudan, Liss, Drunk Beggar, Amaram Aesudan (1): Dalinar Liss (4): Wit, Adolin, Tearim, Jasnah Ialai (1): Klade Player List 1.

  5. Players should refrain from using voting colours for anything other than voting, and should endeavour to make sure their votes are clear. We reserve the right not to count votes we believe require interpretation.
  6. Reserved for clarifications.
  7. LG49/AN3: Hour 2 - A Night of Revelry and Revelation Thara stumbled out of the corner away from the brightlord, who had seemed rather irritated at being found. She’d managed a gulp of wine, after all, which helped at least a little with the hoarseness. “Wine, brightlords and ladies?” she asked by rote. The drums of the not-parshmen thrummed, shivering in her bones. Everything seemed to be speeding up - by the time she’d crossed the room, her tray was emptied. “Look at this,” someone slurred next to her. She turned to find an Alethi who she didn’t recognise staring at her. “Isn’t it awesome?” “Brightlord?” Thara asked uncertainly. He lifted something in his hand. “This! I just got it yesterday, haven’t had the chance to try it yet. Lean in close...” Cautiously, Thara leaned closer to look at the thing in his hand, which looked like some sort of tiny fabrial within an intricate net of wires. “What does it do, brightlord?” He grinned loopily at her. “This.” He squeezed the sides of the fabrial sharply. BANG! Thara stumbled back, ears ringing. That had been loud. She barely stopped herself from glaring at the brightlord. Instead, she smiled politely, bowed, and moved on, entirely unable to hear more than a buzz. Storming brightlords and their storming toys. Hour 2 has begun. It will end on Wednesday, the 12th of September, at 8am BST. My apologies for the delay in getting this cycle up. I hope you'll appreciate that this game has a lot of moving parts, and a lot had to be worked out behind the scenes.
  8. This turn is now over. Please bear with me whilst I sort out rollover.
  9. LG49/AN3: Hour 1.5 - Veneers over Venom Lords and ladies bickered amongst themselves, skirmishes masked by sugary sweetness. How very new and exciting, Thara thought, holding a tray of drinks and smiling just as falsely as the rest of them. If only they’d drop that veneer of civility and just say things, like normal people do. But then, she reflected, there was probably a reason for that civility. Being rude to your local butcher would at worst just mean you got meat elsewhere. Being rude to the king’s son, or advisers, or other such exalted persons? That could have Consequences. Thara would probably just get thrown in jail, though. That was probably just small-c consequences, on the scale of things. The fracturing of alliances that held the newborn kingdom together would be much more important Consequences. Thara shook herself and smiled even more brightly. “Wine, brightlords and ladies?” she asked the nearest group, only to realise that these were no brightlords. In fact, they weren’t even human - she’d just offered wine to a group of... not-parshmen. She could never remember what they were actually called, but that was close enough. She held her breath, hoping one of them understood her. Or that they liked wine. “Not for us, young one,” one of them said in a strange, sing-songy accent. He sounded... amused, maybe? One of the Parshendi took a goblet, though, despite the glance of the one who had spoken. Thara grinned inwardly - some things weren’t so different, it appeared! She continued on, weaving through the crowd of everyone who was considered important. “Wine, brightlords and ladies? Wine, brightlords and ladies?” She could feel herself growing hoarse, slowly. But it would be extraordinarily poor form to drink from her own tray... She glanced around the room searchingly, then started slowly working her way towards a particular corner of the great hall. When she arrived, she ducked into a hidden nook that almost no one knew about and took a significant gulp of one of the oranges she was carrying. She almost dropped the precious glass when she heard a voice from behind her say “Ummm...” Hour 1.5 has begun. It will end on Monday, September 10th, at 11am BST. Clarifications: When cooperating, you must specify the action you are cooperating on. This rule was waived this turn due to a lack of clarity. In addition, you must also specify every member of the group with which you are cooperating, not only the person taking the action. (e.g. “I am cooperating with Elbereth and Alvron to help Wilson perform the action Charm Mailliw.”) If a player holds an item and is killed, the item goes to their killer. If a player holds an item and is ostracised, the item goes to one random individual who voted on them. Two votes are required for a player to be ostracised. Barring special circumstances, ostracised players may not PM, and lose access to all docs they may be in. Player List 1. Gavilar Kholin (Amber Vulture) 2. Dalinar Kholin (Amethyst Scorpion) 3.

  10. This cycle is over. Please bear with me whilst I get the next cycle up.
  11. As I'm under the weather, rollover will be delayed three hours, to 11am BST tomorrow. The new rollover time may continue until Wilson is back from holiday, but will be made clear in the new thread tomorrow.
  12. Clarifications How many actions do I have? Everyone has only one action per turn. What's the RP reward? Each RP post gives you one point, and you can use the points as an action booster for your own action, making you more likely to succeed. 1 to 1 point to percentage, so 10 points adds 10% to the action. Can I only use the points gained from RP on that same turn? No. It accrues over the course of the game until you use the points as a boost. If you RP 20 times over 5 cycles, and then want to use your points to boost an action, you'd get a 20% boost (or less, if you wanted to only use, say, 15 points).
  13. LG49/AN3: Hour 1 - Watch the World Ending It’s difficult to say that a Shard of Adonalsium is at a particular place. We permeate entire worlds, and don’t really use the Physical Realm all that much anyway. But - if you were to pick one single place, where essences congealed slightly more than anywhere else, tonight you might land upon newly-minted Alethkar, in the palace in Kholinar. Tonight we watch the gathering there a little bit more than anywhere else. It’s a cloudy point, where the future diverges in a thousand directions. Shards may have more power than any mortal, but mortals still rule our fates at times. Alethi dance to listener drums as has not happened in a long time, even by our standards. Lords and ladies gossip as if nothing has changed, unknowing of the power and the danger gathering. The High King sits at his throne, his fate hanging in the balance. I see growth everywhere I look: the young brightlord taking his place at the high table for the first time, the more curious Parshendi learning of a culture entirely foreign to them, the ever-so-fragile peace trying to solidify into something more real. I hope it does. Honour sees differently. He sees the promise, the treaty a binding symbol of newborn duty. He sees the servants who take pride in their duties, and the guards bound to protect their king, an interweaving golden web of promises kept and oaths bound. I don’t know what Odium sees. His thoughts are his own, as usual. I only perceive that he smiles. On this one night, the night that decides the fate of nations, we watch. We cannot interfere - our plans will succeed or fall through as the mortals will - but we watch, and we hope. LG49/AN3 has begun! This turn will last until 4:00 am MT on September 8th: Player List 1.

  14. With apologies, we're going to delay the game start 24 hours, to give time to finalise the starting state and recheck balance. We're sorry for the delay, and any upset this might cause to schedules, but hope the payoff from the additional time makes it worthwhile.
  15. It’s long past due that we closed this game. I had enormous fun watching it play out, bringing back fond memories of LG12. Much credit is due to the Elantrians, and Hemalurgic Headshot in particular, for the spectacular restoration of Elantris in the minimum possible number of turns. Special mentions should be made of Steel and Elenion for creating a frighteningly effectve Derethi cult, and of Seonid for masterful play in foiling them. Many thanks to Herowannabe for running such an iconic game once again, with characteristic efficiency and judgement, and to Fifth Scholar and Elbereth for their significant efforts made to support Hero. As always, if anyone would like to try their hand at running a game, just get a hold of Seonid, Alvron, Wilson or myself. Not only will we get you added to the list (and the GM PM group), but we'll be more than willing to help out in any way we can. You can also post game ideas, ask questions, and get feedback from everyone over in our Art of Game Creation thread too. With all the games that we've run so far, we have plenty of experienced GMs that can help you refine any game you're working on. Thanks again to everyone who played, and we look forward to killing seeing you in future games!
