LG33: Term 1, Month 1 - What is the Meaning of Life? Chancellor Varda stood above the empty skin of what had once been Master Namer Droughtbringer, now a gruesome husk. This hadn’t been something to do with his Naming. He had been ridiculous, but not quite this idiotic. This was something far worse. “It’s coming again,” she murmured to herself. That night, the Chancellor addressed the assembled students. “What is the meaning of life?” she began. “It’s an age-old question, and one without any simple answer.But it’s the question I wish to pose, over the next few months. We are the University, the greatest center of learning in the modern world! Can we not solve this question, at long last? There is an answer. Perhaps many. Each of you, during the upcoming terms, will consider it, until you have found an answer to your satisfaction. Consider the great philosophers, the opinions of your grandmothers, the voice of a beggar across the street. Find your answer. What is the meaning of life?” “I ask this, because it has become relevant lately. You will need that answer, many of you. Death is coming. “Master Drought died last night, to a Skindancer attack.” She raised a hand to forestall murmurings. “No, they’re not fairy tales or children’s stories. Yes, they’re real, and yes, they’re here. Until they are exterminated, the coming months will be hard. “You cannot trust your friends, because anyone could be a Skindancer. But we are the University, are we not? The center of learning in the modern world? Arm yourselves, my students. Advance in the ranks. Find the Skindancers among you and wipe them out, until we remain, purer for the battle we have won!” She paused, then continued quietly, “And consider, as you do, the meaning of life, in the case that you are one felled by the fighting.” Magestar stood before the Horns, a large crescent-shaped table with the nine - currently eight - Masters sitting at it, all looking down upon him. He shivered a little, but did not let that deter him from his protest. “It was only a joke! I said ‘hey, in that case I’m probably a Skindancer, sure’, but only in reference to the fact that a friend called me ever-changing! It was a natural response. You can’t discipline me for it!” Chancellor Varda frowned down at him. “A joke in poor taste, then. Very well, student. You may go. Be more careful in the future.” Magestar was brought on the Horns, but all charges were dropped! Droughtbringer has been found dead, killed by the Skindancers! Long Game 33 has begun! You have 36 hours to send in any and all actions (sabotages, elevation points, going to Imre) and decide who should be brought on the Horns. Important Note: Please label all PMs “Term 1, Cycle 1” or “1.1” for this cycle, and continue doing so throughout the game for each respective cycle. That will make the GMs’ lives much easier for counting. Also, more clarifications were put into the writeup. Check there before you ask your friendly GMs, please. Player List 1.
