"This game is gonna get pretty interesting." "Define interesting." "Oh god, oh god, we're all gonna die?" Welcome to Mid-Range Game 55: Sudden but Inevitable Betrayal! The theme of this game is based mostly on Serenity, the movie following the Firefly series. If you have not watched either, I recommend at least the movie. (Though, really, it's a single season. You've binged more than that in a day. Don't deny it.) It's not necessary in order to still enjoy the game. @Ookla the Porched (Araris Valerian) will be IMing. Here are the Rules in pretty doc format. See below for not so pretty formatting. General Rules Alignments Roles Sign-ups will close Monday, December 20 at 12 p.m. (noon) PST. Special Note: Ookla Season Because we are nearing the end of Ookla Season, please include your normal username in your sign-up post. I also ask people to vote using normal usernames because Ooklas get mixed up too easily. Players Rule Clarifications Quick Links
I'm planning a roleplaying campaign that I'll be running with my friends, and I want to put together a playlist of background music to set the mood. The campaign will be a Firefly-esque space western. I've already pulled some songs from Firefly, obviously, as well as the soundtracks from Bastion and Titanfall, and I'm thinking about using a couple from Journey. I'm looking for additional suggestions. I'm especially in need some more intense songs that still have a similar flavor but would work well for combat. Any ideas?
The Everstorm has come. Heralds and Voidbringers alike are returning. The Vengeance Pact has broken, shattered like the Plains themselves. Some Highprinces flee, returning to their princedoms, trying to prepare as best they can. Others rally to Dalinar’s call, fighting their way across the near impassable Plains to the Oathgate, and Urithiru. Your small group once belonged to Highprince Thanadal’s camp, but now you are searching desperately for the Oathgate, hoping against hope that you arrive before you succumb to the elements. Bound together by adversity, you would like to believe you can trust each other. Not all is as it seems, however. Trouble has been drawn to your expedition like rotspren to a wound. Bridges collapse, chulls die; your progress has been hindered left and right. And it’s beginning to seem as if it might not all be coincidence… Factions: Roles: Mechanics: Welcome to LG13! Sign-ups are starting now, and will end on July 13th, at 11:00 PM CDT. (This will also be the regular roll-over time.) Check back to this post fairly often; I'll try to keep an up-to-date player list, as well as rule clarifications and links to various write-ups. If anything comes up, or you've got any questions about the Fair Play Rules, (which you should probably go give a read, if you haven't already) the impartial mod for this game will be Little Wilson. Feel free to ask any questions you might have, and if you're interested in being part of the Spec Doc, just send me a PM.

It's complicated. F.A.Q.s: 1. Why does Progression come last in the Order of Actions? Progression comes last in the Order of Actions because you are not meant to be able to use it to protect yourself, and I don't want people working around that. Additionally, as Progression is a healing power, it makes logical sense for it to occur after the kill has been made, so there is something to heal. 2. Will Division and the Eliminator Kill be distinguishable in the write-up? Are people saved by Progression revealed in the write-up? Yes they will. However, in the case of Progression, it is only made known that someone was saved from a kill, not who was saved. This holds true for players saved by Abrasion and Tension. (Progression will be distinguishable from kills blocked by Abrasion or Tension, though.) 3. Which actions will players be informed of if they are targeted by them? They will be informed of Division, the Diagramist Kill, Progression (if it saves them from a kill), Illumination, Transportation (if it successfully redirects an action) and Adhesion (if it successfully blocks an action, although this will be indistinguishable from action failure for other reasons). 4. Does someone with Transformation have to specify whether they are looking for a player's Alignment or Role? Yes, you will have to specify which you're looking for. If someone forgets to specify, I'll flip a coin to see which they get. Quick Links:
Titan Arum posted a topic in Entertainment DiscussionOk, as an avid Browncoat (aka fan of Firefly), I cannot believe that I was oblivious to the fact that Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion are currently crowd-funding to create a web-series called Con Man! The premise of the show sounds amazing! It's awesomely funny that the entire premise is to make fun of themselves: it follows Alan's character, who was the pilot of a sci-fi space show called Spectrum, and his buddy who was the captain of the space ship (Nathan, of course, and the character is "as famous as Matt Damon"), after the show was cancelled too early. The title is Con Man because it follows them around as they go to various conventions. Besides me, who else is super excited by this show? Has anyone else contributed to the IndieGoGo fundraising? If so, at what level did you commit and why? I decided to commit $60 so that I could get a Con Man t-shirt and watch the show before it airs. Some of the other levels are amazing...I wish I could afford them. Because who wouldn't want to be a background character on the show or go to the premier in LA?!
