  1. The tenets of the Yay are thus And now, YAY
  2. Vin barely succeeded in killing the Lord Ruler, but something went wrong during the fight. The scene ended with Vin limping away, barely conscious and out of pewter. Eventually, she fell unconscious and died. Elend was unable to gather the support needed to ascend and rule Luthadel, so the Steel Ministry was able to clamp down its iron (or steel?) fist. As Ruin's influence grew, he wormed his way into the mind of an unlucky Inquisitor. That Inquisitor was tricked into releasing Ruin from his prison, and things only went downhill from there. After a rather dubious gap in logic and storytelling, all of the Inquisitors went mad and started killing everyone. Because that's just how life works. Welcome to LG59, lovely people. Housekeeping and General Notes: @Coop772 and I will be GMing this game, and @Alvron will be the IM. The game will start on Monday, September 2, 2019. Rollover will be at 12:30 PM PDT.

  3. Day 1 - We Survived It seemed that after everyone realized what had happened to Arr, the entire station had gotten really quiet. A few people talked in the main lobby or in small groups, but they mostly kept to themselves. As such, Draff was left alone to his thoughts over the course of the night. He strolled through the hallways of the station, hearing bits and pieces of conversations between other people who couldn’t sleep or needed to be around others. Suddenly, he heard a noise down the hallway. His heart pounding, he ran towards the noise to see what had happened. He turned the corner, and found Wilco lying with his back against the wall, head between his knees. When he heard Draff running towards him, he quickly looked up with a scared look on his face, which quickly turned to relief. Draff noticed that Wilco’s left eye was swollen, and his lip was bleeding a little, but he seemed aware enough of what was going on to respond to questions. After a bit of a talk, Wilco said someone jumped him while he was walking down the hallway, but he had managed to get a little bit away before he had to sit down. He thought Draff must’ve been the person who jumped him before he saw Draff’s face. Draff sighed. That could’ve been much worse, he thought to himself. At least Wilco seems to be able to keep going. ~ Amanuensis was attacked, but survived! PMs are open, but remember that each player may only make one new PM each turn. Remember to include me and Mailliw in all PMs, and group PMs ARE allowed. There is a two-vote minimum for a lynch and a tied lynch results in one of the tied lynchees’ death. Player List: This turn will last 48 hours and will end at 7:30 PM CDT on June 14th.
  4. Day 3- We Are All Holes in the Fabric Steel flew at speed, weaving between Krell and Defense ships. Destructor blasts flew around him, but nothing came close to hitting him, with his speed. He wrapped one Krell with his Light-Lance, sending it spinning away. He watched that one get shot down by a turret from below. Well then, it appeared that the rebels had a vested interest in not letting the Krell get to the base either. But he was wary of getting too close to those turrets, lest they shoot him down out of pure opportunity. Steel saw one Fresa being ganged up on by several Krell. He tried to get to it, but another ship managed to shoot down one of them before they shot the harrassed Fresa down. As it was, the Fresa was forced to retreat. And they weren't the only one. Several other ships got ganged up on by Krell. None were shot down, but many took a lot of damage. Steel circled up above the battle, and pursed his lips. The skirmish was going better than the previous night, but not much better. He saw a lot of ships not coordinating, and thus wasting their time. It was frustrating to watch, but Steel wasn't in charge of all of them. Finally, he watched 4 remaining Krell ships disengage and flee away. All the ships began heading back to the hangars. All of them. None of them had been shot down? Well then, perhaps it had been a good fight after all. Especially as this time everyone had actually gotten up in the air. He flew back in, and didn't see Ironsides lying in wait to yell at anyone. Climbing out of his Fresa, he saw several ships that were barely held together at all. The pilots all seemed ok though. He was relieved, though the mechanics were panicking. His Fresa was fine, as always. His shield had even held up this time. "I swear I saw an odd ship, one that didn't show up on my radar or nothing. I tried to shoot at it, but then it was gone! It moved faster than even the Krell did! Have the Krell made some sort of new weapon or something?" a pilot was whispering to another, as they walked out of the hangar. "What was that, Storm? What did you see?" Storm turned around. "Oh hey, Steel. I saw some sort of ship flying around in that battle. It made maneuvers that were way more than any Grav-caps would be able to handle. It didn't much look like our tech, or much like the Krell either. It was really odd." "Hm, I'll have to keep an eye out for it next time. We'll have to assess whether it's hostile or not." Steel mused. "Anyway, I'm hungry, and everyone survived, so lets get some grub. It'll be on me." The various pilots seemed particularly thrilled about Steel paying for their food, and there was a general rush to the cafeteria. Doomslug was making some progress in her journey when she got picked up. How rude. She fluted at whoever had picked her up. The person shook her about a bit, but of course Doomslug stuck to their hand. Stupid person. Then the person decided to try and stuff Doomslug in a gun. What in the world??? Doomslug fluted angrily in protest. She didn't fit in the tiny tube. Thankfully the individual recognized that, and took her out. And then performed the ultimate insult, and stuck one of their fingers inside one of her flutes. Doomslug promptly disconnected herself from the person's hand, fluted a rude noise, and scooted away from that horrible person. What she was looking for, that person DEFINITELY didn't have. ____________ No one was shot down! PMs are closed, and the lynch is open. Remember to submit any repair actions you wish to make, and to submit your ship requests. This turn will be 48 hours because of my birthday/friends tomorrow. So it'll end at 8:00PM EDT, 5/31/19. Good luck.
  5. I'm totally serious about this. It's significant enough that it deserves its own thread. I used to love this show as a kid, and still kind of like watching it with my three-year old cousin sometimes. Any thoughts on this?
  6. MR13: Treachery on the Terris Peaks GMs: Elbereth and Twei History turns and shifts, and a little piece of metal moves just slightly... “Right. You’re qualified, you’re coming. Your bag, please?” The young man froze. “Why do you need my bag?” “Inspection. We need to know if we should provide you with a better bag or if yours is sufficient. Also, extraneous metalminds aren’t allowed. There shouldn’t be a reason for you to have a coppermind, for instance. I’ll be carrying the only one, to record what happens at the Well.” He very reluctantly handed his bag over. “I’m not perfectly packed yet,” he tried. “There’s some stuff that I want to take out...” “Really? I thought you said you were ready to go, right now.” “Well, yes... I mean...” He stopped as she pulled out a metal cylinder. “Don’t open that, please! It’s private.” “Privacy isn’t private when you’re dealing with the protection of the most important man in the world,” commented Tindomë wryly, opening the metal cylinder. It looked to have words printed on it. The young man stayed silent as she read, head hung in defeat. She looked up at him. “‘He must never be allowed to complete his quest’? ‘Alendi was never the Hero of Ages’? ‘Alendi must not reach the Well of Ascension’? This is signed by Kwaan. The traitor!” She threw his backpack back at him. “Get out of my sight. No traitors will be allowed on this mission.” He stared at her with hate. “Very well. But I have friends who are packmen. You can’t stop them all!” He turned and stalked away. “Friends, huh?” she said softly to herself. Unfortunately, Rashek was right. She didn’t have nearly enough packmen yet, and she didn’t even know if she could trust those she’d already accepted. She looked down the long line of hopefuls. Most she could dismiss off the bat, of course. Previous experience as a packman was required, and most of them didn’t even have that. But those who did... She couldn’t turn away a willing hand, even if that hand might turn traitor. She’d just have to try to figure out who was who as fast as possible, and make sure Alendi was protected at all times. Tindomë rubbed her forehead. She’d never thought this was going to be easy, but it wasn’t supposed to involve traitors. She tossed the metal sheet to the ground and beckoned forth the next applicant.

  7. Welcome to The University! You’ve heard about the famed institution your entire life, dreaming of attending and possibly even learning the arcane arts. Well, congratulations! You’ve finally made it. You’ll have no problem impressing the Masters enough to let you into the school, though perhaps your tuition could be high. Or it could be low. You just don’t know! All you really know is that you’re where you’ve always wanted to be, and you’re here to learn all you can. But what’s this now? Rumors abound of Skindancers in The University. But the Skindancers are all supposed to be dead, right? Apparently not, because sure enough, students and Masters alike start having problems. Most of them seem to go crazy, and the Crockery is filling up, though some even die. Although you’re no Taborlin the Great or Kvothe the Bloodless, you and a bunch of fellow students have taken it upon yourselves to solve the mystery. You’ve resolved to eliminate the Skindancers once and for all. Only then will you be able to resume your studies and learn to your little heart’s content. Good luck! Section 1: Game Basics This section entails the basics of the game like the factions and their win conditions, the cycles and order of events, and how voting works. Section 2: University Basics This section entails basics that are related directly to this game and the University. These include the currency system, social classes, lodging, admissions, insanity/The Crockery, and discipline points/The Horns. Because of the epic length of this game, it's continued in the next post.
  8. QF12: The Time of Reckoning there's You live in California. Or you used to. Nowadays it's called Persepolis, named by the Epic who's ruled here since Calamity rose. All things considered, he isn't the worst. Public infrastructure is mostly gone, sure, but killing is frowned upon. A few months later, you woke up with powers yourself. You've pleased Perseus, and have made your way into his service. Perseus has need of all of you, but you would do well to remember: you are replaceable. Every day, Perseus chooses the worst among you, those who have contributed the least, and kills them. Personally. Every day there is a reminder that no one is untouchable. Even Epics. Even you. always You come from somewhere else. You've seen what the Epics do. And you've sworn to execute any who break the law. By a strange coincidence, that is almost all of them. For what they have done, for what they do, for what they will do, there will be a reckoning. And you are bringing it. another Alignments role Roles If you don't contribute in Perseus' Court, you don't live. Any player who does not post in the thread, the GM PM, or another PM in 2 full cycles will be killed by him mercilessly. Notes: The only means of PMs is Telepathy. No other PMs are allowed. The write-up will include all kill attempts. Only dead players will be named in the write-up. There may be hints in write-ups, but it is not a good idea to read too much into wording. The number of Telepathy PMs will change depending on how many people sign up. It will be edited into the rules once the game starts. Order of Actions: 1. Perseus' Kill 2. Passive Powers 3.

  9. So we have a very successful Sanderson Memes thread, so I thought we should have a regular memes thread. Please be polite and respectful. Without further ado.... Memes! .
  10. Similar to "Read, Supply, Elect", but fandom-specific for the most part and more items on the list. Standard "I post, you answer and supply a fandom, the next person answers and supplies a fandom", etc. etc. Anyways, without further ado, I present the Fandom Game! For example, let's do Harry Potter. I'd push Draco off a cliff, set Umbridge on fire, date Hermione, marry Luna, wrap a blanket around Cho, and be roommates with Fred and George. Let's start with a simple one. Mistborn.
  11. ALL ABOARD THE BANDWAGON! Alright. Everyone else was doing it, so I figured, why not? I like questions. So have at it. Ask me anything you want, and I will answer. Probably. No questions about my life before 8th grade though, kay?
  12. Punography- post your puns here! When chemists die, they barium. Jokes about German sausage are the wurst. I know a guy who's addicted to brake fluid. He says he can stop any time. How does Moses make his tea? Hebrews it. I stayed up all night to see where the sun went. Then it dawned on me. This girl said she recognized me from the vegetarian club, but I'd never met herbivore. I'm reading a book about anti-gravity. I just can't put it down. I did a theatrical performance about puns. It was a play on words. They told me I had type-A blood, but it was a Type-O. PMS jokes aren't funny; period. Why were the Indians here first? They had reservations. We're going on a class trip to the Coca-Cola factory. I hope there's no pop quiz. I didn't like my beard at first. Then it grew on me. Did you hear about the cross-eyed teacher who lost her job because she couldn't control her pupils? When you get a bladder infection urine trouble. Broken pencils are pointless. I tried to catch some fog, but I mist. What do you call a dinosaur with an extensive vocabulary? A thesaurus. England has no kidney bank, but it does have a Liverpool . I used to be a banker, but then I lost interest. I dropped out of communism class because of lousy Marx. All the toilets in New York 's police stations have been stolen. The police have nothing to go on. I got a job at a bakery because I kneaded dough. Haunted French pancakes give me the crepes. Velcro - what a rip off! A cartoonist was found dead in his home. Details are sketchy. Venison for dinner again? Oh deer!
