The time travel one won't even be that bad! Everyone eill be a Jack, there's only one doc, and you can just count the last time they die as their actual death. The only thing that might break the ss is how many times they get attacked.

The "last time they die"? What about the first, second, third, fourth, and so on? :blink:

I was looking at some past SE docs and spreadsheets, and I noticed that there were a few that, when opened, showed a message that the file was in the owner's trash and access to the file would soon be permanently lost (I think whenever the owner empties their trash). Specifically, I noticed that happen for most of the games @The Only Joe ran (QF4, LG10, LG14, QF14) and one of the docs in QF17 (the birds doc), which was run by @Amanuensis and @STINK (I don't know who owns the doc in question). I also noticed that the docs from MR7 were no longer available at all, so I suppose there's no way to get those ones back. I didn't check every SE file, so there could be others, but a sample shows most are still around.

So I was wondering if the owners of those files would restore them. I was also wondering if it might be a good idea for someone who for sure won't delete them to make copies of SE files so they won't be lost permanently if anyone wants to go back and read them, particularly ones from GMs who haven't been around in a while (for in case they delete them because they aren't around SE anymore) or who don't want extra files hanging around their Drive.

I think Elbereth noticed this before. I saw a note of it in Wilson's spreadsheet, and there was discussion that duplicates would be created, though I'm not sure whether that ever happened, because the link doesn't seem to have been updated...

However, I just checked MR7, and they do appear to be gone forever, unfortunately... :( I can't seem to find any other way around that. Shame to lose all of the faction docs...

I will try, but I had a completely different Gmail address back then.

I had recovered some of them, but I just hadn't updated the links in the spreadsheet. They're added now. Unfortunately, though, MR7 is gone. I highly doubt Kas has a backup of those docs anywhere. That game gave him nightmares.

Done. I'll start adding the Links to the SpreadSheet.

Thanks for doing that. :)

For any files that are replaced, I think it would be nice if a mod put links to the replacements in the thread where the original files are in addition to in the spreadsheet both because not everyone is going to look in the spreadsheet for the docs if they're reading a game--they might just check the game thread itself--and because supplemental files like GM spreadsheets don't seem to have a place in the spreadsheet but we probably still want them available too.

It's too bad about the MR7 docs. I think the only way we could get them back is if someone else had happened to make backups of them. That's why I'm wondering if it might be a good idea to make backups of the other docs for in case any vanish in the future. I'd be willing to help with that, but I wouldn't want to duplicate work if that's already being done or people don't think it would be useful.

On a slightly different note, I noticed that a few old docs were still open to editing. It's probably not that important since I doubt anyone wants to mess with them, but maybe it would be good if they were changed to view only.

Okay, I didn't see it yet, though obviously I didn't read all 14 pages here, but what's the best way to get into a game? Keep watching for a new one to be posted, or is there a wait list of sorts?

Basically just wait for one to start.  A sign-up thread will be posted which you then just reply to with something like "Hi, I'll sign up as [character name here]" and you're in the game! Then you just have to wait for it to start

Yup.  That's basically it.  I got into these games pretty recently, and they are very well done and quite enjoyable.  Although I'm apparently not as good as I remember being. :blink:  Or maybe everyone here is just really good.

The next game's signups will likely be either the next LG (which should be posted sometime around Tuesday or Wednesday of next week), or the next MR around the same time, once QF18 finishes. Check back around then, and I'm sure we'll be happy to see you playing with us! :)

Greetings fellow Sanderson Eliminators.  As some of you may have noticed, there have been a couple of changes to some of the threads.  One of which is the repurposing of this thread into a General Q&A.

Another of the changes is some new and more clearly defined rules.  This is the perfect chance for everyone to reacquaint themselves with the old while learning the new so head on over to the 
General Rules & Etiquette Policy and check them out.

@Amanuensis, is there a Discord server for game creation? I have an idea for a MG

We have a Discord server for our community, not specifically for game creation, although it does have a game creation channel that we frequently use. Joe keeps the link in his signature since he's the official owner, so I'll just refer you there.

Out of curiosity, is there a record for most kills in one cycle by one person?

My interest is purely academic, of course. :D

Yes. Unless there's a major massacre that I somehow haven't heard about, the record would probably be Twei in LG11. She collapsed the roof and killed... 5 people, I believe.

Would the record not be in LG24 now?

Hm. I don't believe so. At most it's a tie. I think 6 people died that night, one of whom was me. To you. Not to Aman. But I think you're correct that the other 5 were all due to the Jeskeri kill, so it'd be a tie between that and LG11, then.

4, actually, in LG24. Me, Mage, Jaime, and Elodin all targeted Aman and died. Araris was killed by Burnt and you were killed by Stink. So 6 deaths, but only 4 were caused by Jeskeri.

EDIT: And I've just checked the spreadsheet for LG11, and Twei only killed 3 people. One person was in the room, but was killed the action period previous to the room collapse, and one other (besides Twei herself) took damage but didn't die. So only 3 people died in the room collapse.

So LG11 is tied with LG12's Night 12, which caused 3 deaths from one kill action (Burnt, killing me). And Kipper's attack in LG24 is therefore in the lead.

How many people did Emerald101 kill on Turn 4 of QF17? All five of the others?

Would Aman's killing of the last constable in QF14 count as a mass kill given that it wiped out all remaining players?

...Maybe? That'd be 17 deaths, then, counting those who were lynched. Somehow I don't think that record's going to be broken for a while. :P

Hmm. If you count Twei's collapsing a roof, I think you'd have to count mine as well, because it's both examples of players intentionally causing the death of others through indirect means. However, I would probably rule that separately alongside Kipper's kill, since that was all done directly by his hands (technically). Since that situation actually required the combined efforts of Kipper, Aonar and myself, however, I would probably rule that one as the most kills made by a single team at once, rather than a single player.

Didn't Araris kill 3 people with his Demolitionist powers in...MR12?
