  1. A Desperate Alliance In the midst of the chaos and turmoil of the War of Reckoning, a faint beacon of hope shines. The Parshendi, in a surprising move, have offered peace to the warring Alethi Highprinces. Atop a wide plateau in middle of the Shattered Plains, the Parshendi and Alethi delegations meet to attempt the negotiation of a lasting peace treaty. But such a momentous occasion has not gone unnoticed. And on Roshar, secrets abound. From the shadows, many sets of malicious eyes watch the proceedings. None of them seek the same ultimate goals - indeed, many are mortal enemies of each other. But all are united on this one thing: that these fragile talks should bear only a stillborn fruit. Welcome to MR23: A Desperate Alliance! This game is a faction game, rather than a standard game of Sanderson Elimination. In the basic game, there will be 5 factions, each with separate win conditions. However, if enough players sign up, up to two additional factions may be added. There will be no Day/Night Turns in this game, rather, it will be played in 48-hour unified Turns. The game will end either when one of the hidden factions achieves their win condition, or when all members of hidden factions have been eliminated. The Alethi and Parshendi peace delegations are public factions: every player will be revealed as a member of one of these two factions at the start of the game. The Parshendi and Alethi have unique sets of roles available to them. All of the remaining factions have members hidden among the public factions - these hidden factions do not share win conditions with the public factions, but their individual win conditions may be compatible with other factions. Or they may not. Hope you like intrigue! Factions and Roles: Alethi: Parshendi: Sons of Honor: Voidbringers: Ghostbloods: Signups for this game will last until Tuesday, July 11th at 7:00 PM, Mountain Daylight Time.

  2. Aftermath: Peace Talks The death of Rif sparked a short, swift struggle among the survivors on the plateau. Petyr lunged for the last member of the fanatic cult that had dedicated itself to the destruction of the peace talks, but Kreshela's Shardblade swung up to interpose between them. Only Anya's last-second dive between them saved Petyr's eyes from flashing to smoke. As Petyr and Kreshela began to match blades against each other, Dalinar strode in, his massive Shardplate fully intact, and forcibly pushed the two of them apart. "Stop it! Stop this!" His booming voice echoed across the plateau. For a brief moment, everything stood still. Then, almost reluctantly, Petyr and Kreshela dismissed their blades. The skirmish sputtered out, as Alethi ambassadors and Parshendi scholarforms dropped their improvised weapons. Eshonai walked forward, and Dalinar stepped aside. Behind him, the body of the last Son of Honor cooled, slain in the fighting despite Kreshela's protection. Eshonai's voice thrummed to the Rhythm of Resolve. "Are there any else that oppose peace?" The silence was deafening. Dalinar stood next to her. "Then shall we proceed with the negotiations?" ------------------------------------- TBD (A Joe in the Bush) was lynched.

  4. Day 8: The Duel Ethelinar stalked the plateau, scowling. Dalinar was a fool. Peace with the Parshendi was unacceptable. How were the Heralds to return and restore the Vorin Church to its rightful place if the Parshendi did not summon a new Desolation? With a curse, he turned and walked towards the center of the plateau. There, he saw the Parshendi Shardbearer. There were rumors in the camp that the Shardbearer had murdered Max Mercury and Zephyras. This was an affront that could not be allowed. He counted his heartbeats as he summoned his Blade. He would see that travesty brought to justice. And by doing so, Dalinar would surely see that peace could not be maintained. His Blade coalesced in his hands, dripping condensation. He pointed it at the Parshendi across the plateau. "You! You murderer! I challenge you to a duel, to avenge the deaths of my people!" Dalinar rushed over to intervene, but was stopped by the Parshendi leader. She whispered something in his ear, and Dalinar was still again. Was the man bewitched? Dalinar raised his voice. "The challenge has been issued and accepted. The duel is to the death. May the warriors fight with honor." Ethelinar smiled a feral smile, and charged. The Shardblades shivered as they clashed, the massive swords ringing across the plateau as the warriors fought. The Parshendi parried, and parried, and parried again. Ethelinar growled. This close, he could see large rents in the Shardplate, where the red and black colored skin showed through. Smiling, he pushed even further for the kill, only to be parried again. He let out a howl of frustration. Why wouldn't the savage just lie down and die! Suddenly, from the watching crowd of Parshendi came a cry of rage. "You traitor!" A hulking Parshendi stepped forward, fearsomely armored and with red spren dancing around him. Ethelinar knew him - Corinoc. He'd tried to kill him before, but the massive savage had survived somehow. "You betray our whole people for what? A piece of paper that says there is peace? There is power enough to wipe these miserable humans off the face of Roshar. Feel it now!" Red lightning danced at his fingertips, and blasted towards the Parshendi Shardbearer. Ethelinar laughed. After this, it would be simple to convince the rest of the Alethi, even Dalinar, that the savages couldn't be trusted. But a smaller Parshendi jumped in front of the lightning at the last minute, rolling away singed and burned. He couldn't tell if she was dead or alive. The blast still knocked the Parshendi Shardbearer off of his feet, and Ethelinar moved in for the kill. Out of nowhere, a Shardblade materialized to block his stroke. "You would strike your opponent when they are downed by treachery? Where is your honor, sir?" With a grunt of rage, he shoved the wielder out of his way, only to find his opponent on his feet again. He shouted to the heavens. "By the Almighty and all the Heralds, why won't you die!" He charged forward, only to be forced back by a flurry of quick blows. He parried them with blinding speed, wishing once again that he had also won Shardplate in the duel that had gotten him his Blade. As he parried yet another powerful blow, his foot hit a rock at the edge of the chasm. He looked down to see that he was standing at the edge of the plateau and the blow he had turned aside had carved off the piece of stone he was standing on. Suddenly he was tumbling down. His head struck the chasm wall, and he never saw the ground. ------------------------------------- Day 8 has begun! Corinoc (cloudjumper) was lynched but survived.

  5. Day 7: Princess of Death Hema sat in her tent that was lit only by a few spheres on her small table. She didn’t want to draw attention to the fact that she had been awake all night. She sat anxiously by her spanreed trying to keep in constant communication with all of her contacts. She had a feeling growing in the pit of her stomach that today was going to be a disaster. She couldn’t reach a few of the people she needed to make her plans come together. There had been a tension rising between her and the others among the party of “peace treaty members”. She had tried to fit in, but she had always been a blunt person, and she could tell that the others sensed her apathy towards the peace treaty. In truth, she had been sent here to stop the treaty, but she was supposed to be laying low. She sighed, running her hands through her hair, while sitting back and waiting for her contacts to respond. The spanreed jumped to life, startling her. She tensed, and started following the lines it penned. She paled, realizing this day might’ve just gotten much worse. She tried to reach her other contacts, but no one was answering. She panicked, and rushed from the tent, looking to find one of her comrades. She didn’t make it 10 feet before being jumped from behind. Someone had been waiting for her. Ten heartbeats….just ten heartbeats. She couldn’t do it. It was against her orders from the Sons of Honor to use her blade during the peace committee. She wouldn’t disobey her orders. She struggled to get free, and cursed herself for not donning her armor in her rush to leave the tent. With it, she could’ve gotten free with ease. She was hit from behind and all went black. Hema awoke to a riotous commotion, and cracked her eyes. Her head pounded, and she could see a large group gathered around her. It was still early morning, and she couldn’t quite make out all of the figures standing around her. She was lying on the ground with her hands bound behind her. Apparently, they were discussing whether to turn her over to Dalinar, or just kill her and throw her in a ravine. Her blood ran cold as she realized this was the end for her. She had gone into this mission knowing the cost. She struggled to her knees and spoke, causing the argument to stop and every eye to turn on her. “I confess to being a Son of Honor, or a Daughter of Honor actually.” She laughed ruefully. “My husband was a loyal soldier in Dalinar’s army, and died because of the Parshendi. Sadeas is at fault as well, but the Sons won’t let me do anything about him for now.” I want revenge for my husband. I won’t agree to any peace treaty with a people responsible for so much pain. It’s my life or theirs. You may as well kill me now. Please do, for I couldn’t bare to cause Dalinar anymore pain by finding out what I’ve done.” She bowed her head, waiting for their response. It came in the form of a quick death, granting her final petition. -------------------------------------- Day 7 has begun!

  6. Day 4: Retribution The deaths of Locke and Aredor came as a complete surprise to the entire contingent. The two artifabrians had worked closely together, and had helped to identify Plato Anderson as a holder of unholy power. That, in turn, had threatened to upset the entire unstable balance of power in the camp, especially after an unknown Alethi had murdered Arbol as well. So when the artifabrians indicated Kintas as a potential murderer, Eshonai decided that she had taken enough. Would the Alethi accuse and bring to trial her entire delegation, simply on grounds of being Parshendi? Stalking to her tent, she opened a chest. Inside were Shardplate and a Shardblade, the last of them possessed by her people. One of her most loyal followers would be given the honor of bearing them. If the Alethi were going to hide their murderous intentions behind the trappings of deliberation, she was going to give her people a chance to defend themselves. As she returned to the camp, she found the camp in turmoil. The bodies of Locke and Aredor were lying in the center of the camp, riddled with decay. Eshonai shivered involuntarily. What could have done this? She hoped it was not more of her people adopting the forms of the gods. They couldn't be that desperate yet. An Alethi body hung from a gibbet as well. Raaman, a guardsman in Dalinar's camp, had been charged with the murder of Arbol. The evidence gathered seemed to indicate an innocent man, however, and Eshonai was certain that more was going on beneath the surface. -------------------------------------- Day 4 has begun! It will end in roughly 48 hours. Remember that there is no Night Cycle - all actions are performed during the Day Turn, along with votes and the lynch. Raaman (Hemalurgic Headshot) was lynched!

  7. Day 2: Betrayal in the Camp The atmosphere in the peace accords camp was tense even before the incident. That was to be expected, Eshonai reflected, given the two parties' mistrust of each other. After the bridges that had crossed the plateau were destroyed in the night, the mood turned downright murderous. The Alethi blamed her people - that was also to be expected. Her people blamed the Alethi, citing it as a devious ruse to justify murdering the delegation. For a few hours, it almost seemed as if the peace accords would break out into mass violence, and she began ordering her people to prepare to protect themselves. But Dalinar - a remarkable man; she was glad she had picked him to negotiate with, as his honor had almost certainly saved the lives of her people - managed to control his followers, and she prevented any violent reprisals on her side. Only Plato Anderson among her people had been injured in the troubles, though he swore that some Alethi had tried to murder him after everything had cooled down. In one respect, she mused, she was grateful that the bridges had been destroyed. She now knew that somebody in the camp was trying to sabotage the accords. And she would find who it was, and stop them. -------------------------------------- Day 2 has begun! It will end in 48 hours.

  8. Day 1: Fateful Greetings Dalinar Kholin watched the delegation move across the Shattered Plains. The bridges joining the plateaus moved slowly, armored chulls dragging their immense frames with methodical slowness. The bridges were sturdy, capable of supporting a cavalry charge, and his folk walked confidently across it. This peace treaty could be a gift from the Almighty. With the war ended, he could get the fractured political leaders of his people back home, governing as they were meant to. Alethkar could cease pouring years of resources into an endless war, and use her newfound unity to become strong and prosperous. But first, peace had to come. Not everyone would be happy with it. Many of the Highprinces loved the play-act of war that this had become. No real risk to themselves, and a great deal of financial gain from the gemhearts of the plateaus. Some might even violently object. He looked back at his company, walking over the chasms. He hoped no traitors walked among them. -------------------------------------- Eshonai sat in nimbleform, on a rocky mount overlooking the meeting plateau. The Alethi had come armed, of course. That was to be expected. She hummed the Rhythm of Satisfaction, though. After years of war, she had offered a peace token and he had actually come! There might be a way to save her people after all. But she had heard worrying rumors from the scholars - rumors of new and dangerous forms, connected with their gods. Some among them might be desperate enough to assume those forms. She would have to keep a close watch on her own. -------------------------------------- Day 1 has begun! It will end in 48 hours.
