  1. Callor stepped out of the thick woods ringing Fal Dara, his white cloak with the golden sun making a splash against the darkly covered thicket that previously enveloped him. He felt vaguely uncomfortable standing there exposed, in the open between two nexuses of evil. The whitewashed tower, with its shiny exterior that fooled most, but was still full of rot within, was closer than the Dark One’s prison. However, Shayol Ghul seemed to emanate his madness. By means of the Blight spreading surely and slowly over the Blasted Lands and encroaching on the northern kingdoms, the Dark One advanced, and a strong hand was needed to intervene that did not belong to Tar Valon witches. And Callor knew whose hand that would have to be. Smiling at his orders from the Lord Captain Commander, he took to the road fully, prepared for his presence to be announced to the Keep he neared. Let them! Agelmar would be as wet clay in his hands when he saw what the Children could do. A few minutes of warning would change nothing. The Light would shine on and protect those who resisted the Dark One at all times. And Pedron Niall stood for the Light. The guardsman on the walls of Fal Dara Keep blinked. A party had appeared, essentially out of nowhere, on a stretch of clear road empty a second earlier. He frowned, motioning his fellows to hold the gates against the newcomers. Peering closer, he was unsurprised to see an Aes Sedai and a Warder among their number, even if the man looked familiar. The guardsman tried to place him, but the name was slippery on his tongue, and he could not grasp it. Those thoughts were driven from his head by the Aes Sedai, who serenely reached into one of her pouches and showed Agelmar’s sigil, a token of entry. Having little other choice, he let the Warder and his Aes Sedai in, glancing at the others as they passed. Mostly youth, though seemingly an Ogier among them, and an older gleeman. He did not know for what purpose they were there, but the woman had flashed Agelmar’s sign, and as such was to be allowed entry. Curious about the new arrivals, but unable to abandon duty, the guardsman contented himself with watching the north road, and the Blight as it crept slowly closer. Pain. Pain was all Aginor felt, from head to toe. A constant reminder of his failure. A constant reminder that his recklessness had trapped him at the surface of the Wheel for three millennia, while eras came and went. The pain stayed with him for all those millennia, and it did not vanish with his release. Yet despite this pain, Aginor was determined to see that his body would have advantages. He straightened, shrivelled skin screaming in protest from the treatment, and looked towards the Spine of the World. His eyes, at least, were sharp enough to see the mountain range clearly, even as far away as they were, and the dark shapes in that direction coming towards him. Squinting, he made a pretense of studying the mountain ranges. Maybe its formations would be the key to finding what he searched for. Somewhere in there lay the Eye. He just needed to come upon it. Aginor chuckled aloud, loud enough for Balthamel, similarly shrivelled, to raise an inquisitive eyebrow. She did not see what he did. Looking directly at him, moving in his direction with purpose, the shadows materialised: a small contingent of Darkfriends came before him, kneeling. Then Aginor truly smiled. It’s been a month-long drought (or should I say Blight ), but welcome to MR32: The Blight Encroaches! This game, if you didn’t catch it from the RP, is a Wheel of Time game set at the end of The Eye of the World. The Forsaken are trying to destroy, overwhelm, or use the Eye to cut off the fledgling Dragon, al’Thor, from using it against the Great Lord of the Dark. Meanwhile, the Light is frantically defending the Eye against the encroachments of both the Blight and Forsaken, and seek to drive them back and kill them to strike a major blow on behalf of the Light. This game will start at Fal Dara Keep and move back towards the Eye as it continues. My co-GM for this game will be Elandera (@Ookla the Rogue). Our Impartial Moderator is @Alvron. All of the rules for this MR may be found here, in this Google doc. If anyone has any rules questions (and I imagine they do), please do not hesitate to ask. I’ll be saving the first post for a player list and rule clarifications. It is worth noting that the rules are not technically set in stone, as the game balance committee might want me to make tweaks, so until they pass the game, consider this ruleset unfinished. That said, I will try to keep all of you updated on the status of the ruleset until it is confirmed. Actually, I lied about that doc having all the rules. I did not address one set of rules: those pertaining to Ooklas. I am aware that the Ooklas are a wonderful festive way to celebrate Sanderson (having assumed the role of one myself), but they can cause issues regarding identity in SE. I’d hate to have mere confusion about names and identities derail lynch discussion or confuse action orders, and as such am placing the following guidelines for Ookla users: 1. If you changed your name to an Ookla, please place your usual name within your title. 2. If you changed both your name and profile picture, please conclude all your posts with a boldfaced line that states your regular name. Players that only changed their name are not required to do this but are strongly encouraged to, to help out your GMs. (You always have our best interests at heart, right? ) 3. Once the game has begun, do not change your name or profile picture any longer. 4. When voting to lynch on an Ookla, cast your vote in the following format: Regular Name (Ookla Name). For instance: “I vote Fifth Scholar (Ookla the White-Cloaked) for imposing pointless Ookla restrictions.” Also, it might help a lot of people could just generally refer to others by their usual names. 5. Please just call me Fifth. My Ookla name is just for RP. Thank you for cooperating with all of the above, and I’m confident that if everyone tries to adhere to it, we shouldn’t have identity-confusion issues. Signups for this game will close Thursday 6 December 2018, at 10:00 PM EST. (Rollovers in general will be around 10 PM EST.) The countdown site is broken, so do math if you need an exact number.

  2. The missive used stiff, formal writing, as if the unit's situation was common-place. They read it over and over again, trying to find someway out. "We have reason to believe that your unit has been infiltrated by traitorous elements. These elements are dangerous, and constitute an immediate threat to the general public. As such, your unit has been quarantined. You are not allowed to leave the front. Leaving the front will be grounds for immediate execution. Do not attempt to leave the front. If you are successful at eliminating the traitorous elements, we will reconsider your sentence. Please note that time is limited. Even now, these elements are plotting against you and your country. Good luck." The soldiers couldn't believe what they were reading. Traitorous elements? Who in their right mind would try to support the wild chalklings. And what was that part about immediate execution? It seemed impossible, and yet, even as the soldiers discussed, the Forgotten among them plotted and waited for their chance to strike. And so another tale of woe and violence began on the plains of Nebrask. Mid-Range Game 27: Quarantine Welcome to Mid-Range Game 27! I'm Sart, the GM, with @Straw as my Co-GM. This game is set in the Rithmatist series. The Rules: Rule Clarifications: Player List: This game will start in a week's time. Let me know if you have any questions about the rules. Quick Links:
  3. "Are you sure about this sir?" Tina asked, nervously. "It's our only option. If that part of the Circle breaks..." Samuel paused, grimacing. "No, this is the only way. We need men, and we need men now." "But sir, most of these men were discharged! You'd be sending them to the slaughter." "I know that!" He slammed his fist on his desk. "I know that. But it's the only option we have. Our other soldiers are stretched thin enough as it is. We can't afford to lose any more soldiers, and we can't afford to lose any more ground. The only option we have left is to find more Rithmatists, and those don't drop out of the sky. We need all the help we can get, even if they are a bit unusual." "But sir," "No more objections!" Sam yelled. "I don't like this any more than you do, but this is our only option. I'm sending in the order." He wired the missive through. "You're dismissed colonel." She sighed. "Yes sir." As Tina left the room, Sam let out a rare smile. "The Rithmatists were sure to be slaughtered." he thought to himself. "They would be outnumbered and outgunned as soon as they entered the war zone. His operatives among them would make short work of the remaining survivors. And with that part of the Circle undefended, it would surely break. And once that happened," his eyes began turning a milky white. "The Forgotten would rule." Welcome to Mid-Range 21! This is a rerun of my first game, MR3. Both games are set in the Rithmatist universe. In order to encourage role play, please include in your signup why your character was discharged from the military. Below are the rules. The game will be running on Monday, April 17th. Rollover is at 7 PM Central Time, 1 AM BST, with turns lasting 48 hours. I look forward to GMing you. Let me know if you have any rule clarifications/other questions for me. Quick Links:
  4. Mid-Range Game 15: The Dula Revolution -------------------- Welcome to Duladel, the greatest city in Opelon, Kolo? It's election season here, and people are campaigning left and right. Of course, some Derethi rulos have shown up and are causing trouble, but what harm could they possibly do? -------------------- This scenario takes place in an affluent section of Duladel just before Hrathen begins the revolution. There are three distinct groups with their own victory conditions.: -The Derethi Converts: The nobles that have secretly converted to Shu Dereth in the hope of gaining political power after the revolution. They win if they outnumber the non-Derethi players, regardless of whether or not the Jeskeri Mysteries Cult controls the senate (the Cult loses in this case.) The Converts have their own doc, and can use a kill action on each night cycle. -The Jeskeri Mysteries Cult: They win if the Derethi Converts are exterminated while half or more of the Senate belongs to the Mysteries. If the Derethi religion is stamped out and the Mysteries Cult does not control the senate, the members of The Cult will be executed (and lose.) The Cult also has its own doc, and can use a kill action on each even-numbered night cycle.. -The Dulas: The Korathi, Jeskers, and Shu-Kesegans. They win if the Derethi religion is stamped out, but if The Cult controls half or more of the Senate seats at the end of the final cycle, all Non-Cultists will die horrible deaths (and lose) -------------------- Day and night cycles will be separate in this game, each lasting 24 hours. rollover is at 12:00 AM GMT, or 7:00 PM US Central time. -------------------- Roles: -Gyorn: This is the leader of Duladel's branch of Shu-Dereth. The role is only available to members of Shu-Dereth. -Abilities: - Dakhor Spies: Each day cycle, the Gyorn can inspect a single player to learn their role, but not their alignment. -Korathi Acolyte: You've recently converted to Shu-Korath, and you're eager to fulfill your mission to bring about unity through love and brotherhood. Derethi Converts and Mysteries Cultists cannot be Korathi Acolytes. -Abilities: -Korathi Forum: An Acolyte begins the game with their own special doc, which they can add one player to once each night cycle. -Kesegan Monk: A monk of the Kesegan sect. You've received training in the martial art of Chaysan, which gives you a significant edge over your enemies. You can perform one of the following actions each night cycle: -Abilities: -Kesegan Guardian:Can guard any player currently in the game each night cycle. If a kill action is used on that player, the identity of the attacker will be revealed to you via PM and the player you're guarding will not be killed. You can use this action on yourself, but the identity of your attacker will not be revealed should you be attacked in this case. -Vigilante: Can attack any player currently in the game each night cycle. If the player is a Derethi Convert, Mysteries Cultist, or Duelist, they will be informed of the attempt made on their life and the kill action will fail, and you'll be informed that they defended themselves. If the player is being guarded or otherwise unable to be killed, you will be informed of that. Otherwise, the target will die. -Merchant: This player happens to be a particularly wealthy merchant, and they have the option of getting out of town if things are getting rough for them. -Abilities: -Business Trip: Once per game, these players can choose to skip a night cycle. They will not be able to take any actions that cycle, but are immune to kill actions. -Duelist: You've trained extensively with dueling swords, and use this power to guard the Republicans from those who would do them harm in these troubled times. -Abilities: -Guard: These players can select a Senator to defend each night cycle, and during that cycle, kill actions used against that player will be blocked. You will be informed whether or not that person was attacked. -The Landlord: An affluent citizen in Dula society. Your money and influence give you the ability to change the results of elections. -Abilities: -Affluence: Landlords can add an extra, anonymous vote to either the Election or the Recall on Night Cycles. ---------------------------------------- The Senate: The Senate (I'm calling it the Senate, though the canon probably has a different, as-of-now unstated name for it) is the center of Dula society. Each night cycle, there is both an election and a recall election, in which a player is selected to join the Senate and forced to leave the senate, respectively. 3-5 players will be randomly selected to be the initial Senators. These players can have any role or religious affiliation. Senate Discussions take place on a public doc. A senator must have at least 2 votes on them to be elected. A senator must have at least 5 votes on them to be recalled If the Election/Recall vote is tied, the Senator to be elected/recalled will be selected randomly from the top tied contenders. The senate can have no more than 5 members. If 5 players are currently in the senate, only the Recall election will take place that cycle. In addition, no Recall Election will take place if there are 2 or less players currently in the senate. Votes for Election are in green Repealing Election votes are in red Votes for Recall are in blue Repealing Recall votes are in orange I hope that that's... not too confusing. Basically, lynching takes place on day cycles, elections take place on night cycles. Senators are protected from kill actions on the night in which they are elected. ------------------------------------- The Senate has two main functions each day cycle: Senate Vote: Whoever the Senate collectively votes for in the special vote on the senate doc will recieve three additional votes on them for the lynch. Senate Inspection: The Senators also vote to inspect one player once each day cycle. The player's role and alignment will be revealed via PM to a random Senator. Senators will vote for a player on the public doc. A simple majority will determine who the senate vote and the senate inspection goes on. And finally, once per game, the senate can vote to suspend the lynch entirely. This requires the agreement of the majority of the senate in a simple yes-kolo or no-kolo poll. ------------------------------------- An award goes to the player that creates the most posts that use the word "kolo" more than twice.

  5. This was the 'invitation' being sent out to all of those who have earned notice or been deemed worthy. Only half of the invited are expected to return willingly, Grim knew. The ones that didn't would just be used in the required initiation rituals. Game Rules: Sign-ups will last a week, until sometime on Sunday, October 18th! Quick Links:
  6. Special Thanks to Ben McSweeney for making these icons and Awesomeness Summoned for making them available online. On the Isle of Nebrask, there was one simple rule: keep the Circle whole. The Circle was a line of chalk, surrounding the island, containing the wild chalklings. If it broke, they could swarm out, and decimate the United Isles of America. On the Western Front, a new group of Rithmatists were gathering. Their mission was simple: if the line washed out, they had to repair it. Their commanding officer, Tammy Kingswright, addressed the group. “We are defending our homeland today. The Circle may be holding today, but it could fall at any moment. A single raindrop could ruin our line, and destroy our way of life. We’re not going to allow that. Come rain or shine, we will protect this country! Now, who’s with me?” Mid-Range Game 3 is now open for sign-ups! I’m looking for around 20 players, but the more the merrier. This game will start a day after Long Game 8 ends. Rules: Setting: You are part of a group of Rithmatists, battling wild chalklings in Nebrask. However, it appears some of your battalion actually support the chalklings, and are secretly trying to sabotage the front lines. General Rules: This game has the day and night combined into one cycle. Players will vote on who to lynch in the thread, while sending the GM (me) their special action in PMs. PMs between players are not allowed in this game. Each Cycle will last 48 hours. Rithmatics: To combat the chalklings, most soldiers (excluding Non-Rithmatists) use Rithmatics. Each day, you may do one of the following. However, you may not repeat the same action two cycles in a row. Line of Forbiddance: You protect yourself for the cycle. As long as this stays up, you can't be killed. Line of Vigor: Cancel a target player's action. Line of Making: You create a chalkling that will spy on a target player. Unfortunately, chalklings are extremely dumb and can only be given extremely basic commands. Chalklings will walk in a straight line and will only return to you if they run into a wall. If a player was using a Line of Warding or Forbiddance, you will be informed that they were protected. Otherwise, nothing will happen. Line of Warding: The camp gains one defense for the cycle. (See below) Advanced Rithmatics: You can substitute one of these for your special action, if you have been taught them. Line of Revocation: Kill a target player, as long as they aren't protected by a Line of Forbiddance. This is only available to Rithmatic Scholars. Line of Silencing: Cancel a target player's vote. Special Roles: The Forgotten: You command the wild chalklings, and you win once you outnumber the good-guys. Every night, instead of using Rithmatics, one of you can kill a target player. You are also immune to Wild Chalkling kills. Of course, you have access to a Google Doc to formulate plans. Non-Rithmatist: You are clearly crazy. You sneaked onto the front-lines without having any powers! However, you have studied Rithmatics extensively, and have learned about Advanced Rithmatics. Once per game, you can give a target Rithmatist access to these powers. Sentry: As long as you stay alive, you passively give the camp 1 defense. See below for details. You are also immune to the Wild Chalkling kill. This role will be added if we have enough players. Artist: Because you can draw them so well, your chalklings are smarter. When you use Lines of Making, you will learn what special action your target did that turn. Defense: Since the camp is on the front-lines, there is always the threat of wild chalklings invading. The power of the chalklings is equal to the number of Forgotten. The camps defense is equal to the number of people making Lines of Warding plus the Sentry bonus. If the power of the chalklings is greater than the defense of the camp, a random player is killed. This kill ignores Lines of Forbiddance. If the camp's defense is equal to, or greater than, the power of the chalklings, the camp doesn't lose a player. Quick Links:
