  1. I'm planning on reading them all, so I will get round to that one! The next M. Banks book I plan on reading though is Feersum Endjinn because I picked it up dead cheap at a second hand bookshop, so I actually have it to hand to start reading.
  2. My favs so far are Look To Windward and Excession. I'm lead to believe that The Hydrogen Sonata is gonna be one of the ones that I especially like (though I adore them all (except for Inversions) of course).
  3. I am reading The Hydrogen Sonata by Iain M. Banks. Finally on the last (published) of the Culture books. Been very excited for this one.
  4. We did skip cycle 6, yes.
  5. The meteor hit hard. The first strike caused devestation - but it was only the beginning. Wave after wave of smaller projectiles, combined with the dust covering the atmosphere, conspired together to, bit by bit, kill anything and everything. It was over. Creation had been for nothing. Nobody won! But like, seriously, no one was even close to their win conditions. I do apologise for the utter mess that this game has been from beginning to start, and I'm grateful to everyone for not going off on one at me. You're welcome to look in the Spec Doc for my reasons as to ending the game early (or.. late, as it were). It's not pretty. Again, I'm sorry. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your time in SE - I probably won't play again (even though I definitely recall swearing off playing before...). You can catch me on the discord - come talk to me about the horrors of US imperialism, mathematics, or cute animals. Your choice. Here's to making SE history.

  6. "All humans are descended from one pair of ancestors, Rangi and Papa, who are also called Heaven and Earth. In those days, Heaven and Earth clung closely together, and all was darkness. Rangi and Papa had six sons: Tane-mahuta, the father of the forests and their inhabitants; Tawhiri-ma-tea, the father of winds and storms; Tangaroa, the father of fish and reptiles; Tu-matauenga, the father of fierce human beings; Haumia-tikitiki, the father of food that grows without cultivation; and Rongo-ma-tane, the father of cultivated food. These six sons and all other beings lived in darkness for an extremely long time, able only to wonder what light and vision might be like." Maori Creation Story No rules were voted in! The Rule Submissions for this turn are: #1 - The Brotherhood can convert no more than three people in addition to those converted when the faction came into existence during the course of the game. If they have made these conversions, and target someone they would normally have converted, nothing happens. I know this won't matter too much now, but I'd still like to fix this anyway. also, if allowed, I'd like to use my secret-keeper power on this one.

  7. The turn is over! Rollover shall be out... at some point.
  8. " When the earth first became hot and the heavens churned and the sun was dark, land emerged from the slime of the sea. The deepest darkness of caverns, a male, and the moonless darkness of night, a female, gave birth to the simple lifeforms of the sea. The coral that builds islands was born, and the grub, the sea cucumber, the sea urchin, the barnacle, the mussel, the limpet, and cowry, and the conch and other shellfish. Born was the seagrass, guarded by the tough landgrass on land; born was the Manauea moss of the sea, matched by the Manauea taro plant on land; born was the Kele seaweed, and the Ekele plant of the land." - Kumulipo Rule #1 was voted in. The Rule Submissions for this turn are: #1 - changelings 4 factionless are converted to the changeling faction. This faction has the following win-condition: Have at least one member survive till game end. Collectively absorb at least 2/3 of the roles. This refers to the unique instances of the role, not the total amount of roles in the game (so the changelings only need to absorb 1 strong-willed, 1 potato-master, 1 elementalist, etc.) 1 Changelings can absorb the power of a lynched person (who has to have died from the lynch), provided he/she voted on that person during the lynch with a red(killing) vote. One random role the person had is added to the collective pool of roles the changelings have access to.The use of this faction power is mentioned in the write-up, though the identity of the changeling isn't revealed (For example: Drake Marshall has been lynched. A changeling has absorbed one of his roles). Any changeling can decide to start using an absorbed role at the end of a night cycle. He will lose his own roles, but gain the absorbed role until the end of the next cycle. Afterwards, he'll lose the absorbed role and regain his own roles. After use, the absorbed role is put back into the 'pool', and can be used again by another changeling. A role can be used in consecutive cycles, by both the same changeling or by different ones. 1 changeling can also choose to watch someone during the night. If this person dies during the night, one of his roles is absorbed, in the same manner as when someone has been lynched. However, any actions against the watched person during the night have a 33% chance of hitting the changeling watching him instead. Ecthelion III has died! They were a Potato Master.

  9. i'd like to apologise for forgetting one of the rule proposals
  10. "Long ago, well before there were any people, all life existed in the sky. Olorun lived in the sky, and with Olorun were many orishas. There were both male and female orishas, but Olorun transcended male and female and was the all-powerful supreme being. Olorun and the orishas lived around a young baobab tree. Around the baobab tree the orishas found everything they needed for their lives, and in fact they wore beautiful clothes and gold jewelry. Olorun told them that all the vast sky was theirs to explore. All the orishas save one, however, were content to stay near the baobab tree." Yoruba Creation Myth No rules were voted in! The Rule Submissions for this turn are: #1: A giant meteor will strike the thread on Day 7, killing everyone, reducing their lives to 0. The game will end after the meteor strikes, with win conditions being determined at that time. #2: Drake Marshall has died! They were a WorldSmith and a member of the Brotherhood of Peace. They were a Dungeon Master! No one was lynched!

  11. "In the beginning, neither heaven nor earth had names. Apsu, the god of fresh waters, and Tiamat, the goddess of the salt oceans, and Mummu, the god of the mist that rises from both of them, were still mingled as one. There were no mountans, there was no pasture land, and not even a reed-marsh could be found to break the surface of the waters. It was then that Apsu and Tiamat parented two gods, and then two more who outgrew the first pair. These further parented gods, until Ea, who was the god of rivers and was Tiamat and Apsu's geat-grandson, was born. Ea was the cleverest of the gods, and with his magic Ea became the most powerful of the gods, ruling even his forebears." Babylon Rules #1 and #3 have been voted in! The rule proposals for this turn are: #1: An action may be spent to pass any item you hold to another player. This does not include bunnies. The Rules, as of Day 4: Factions Roles General Abilities Passive Rules The Lynch Set-up The way the ruling in proposal #1 went, bunnies would still eat pancakes. This would, however, have been ridiculous. They now eat nothing. I'm letting you all off on this one, because apparently everyone assumed it was working that way anyway.

  12. Night 3 is over. We'll be taking 24 hours to do rollover, so sit tight. In addition, because the edits I made didn't save last night: Drake got lynched instead of Straw and Len's rule proposal shouldn't have been posted.
  13. Rule #5 is no longer being considered for the rule proposals - it should have been deleted last night but for some reason that didn't work
