I'm thinking that a 7p game would work best, but if there is interest, we could try 5p or 6p.

Variant Rules

Roles & Private Messages

modkiwi's messages should be slightly different, but they should be similar to these.

Plain Old Rebel
"You are a plain old rebel."

Plain Old Spy
"You are a plain old spy. Dr. Jekyll, & Mr. Hyde, are your teammates."
Eugene Wong
PBF Rules:

This copy of the rules was inspired from PBF #235, and then modified to work with modkiwi, which is a bot. Only sections #1 & #2 have been modified. Modkiwi hasn't been used much, so these rules might be slightly modified to reflect the proper way to use the bot.

1) Official mission proposals should be in bold and must contain the mission number and proposal number. For example PBF244: M1.1 Moogle: Chocobo, Natalie. After proposals have been made in bold, they cannot be changed. Modkiwi should automatically create the links for us.

2a) All votes and mission cards should be sent to modkiwi.

2b) You may change a submitted card any number of times (i.e.: YES/NO, PASS/FAIL) but as soon as modkiwi receives the card from the last player, no more changes are allowed. , even if I'm not there to post the results yet. To change your vote, just submit another private message like before, but submit it with "***change***" or some similar text at the end of your subject line. If you made changes after all the cards were in, I'll tell you which submitted card was the final one.

2c) Per standard PBF etiquette, the fifth proposal/hammer will automatically be sent.

3) There is a non-strict time limit of 24 hrs on every official game action. If you are going to take much longer than that, please post in the thread in advance. Weekends are usually not included.

4) No game-related discussion is allowed outside the thread until the game is completed. This includes GMs between players and posts in other threads. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask! No question is to n00bish!

5) Do not edit posts, except in the first minute or so to fix typos. Deleting is an extreme form of editing which is also forbidden. If you do edit, please type why you are editing. Example: Edit - For spelling mistakes.

6) You may not use the Geekroller in this thread for any decisions.

7) Please subscribe to the thread and check in at least daily (exceptions for weekends).

8) Feel free to message me anytime. It makes the game fun for me seeing what your thoughts are as you figure things out.

9) Remember everyone is here to have fun! Bullying, and other unsportsmanship like conduct is frowned upon. You will be given a warning then asked to leave if behavior becomes out of hand.

Howdy John.

Never did a closing comment on our last game. I thought John was Percy and calvin was merlin.

I was curious about how much you believed in me being a spy.

I still am curious, but I was then too.

I'm not surprised, I didn't have to do much as merlin other than vote correctly and let percy do the interpreting. I did try to shade you right at the end to give myself some cover... not sure if that helped, didn't sound like I was really in the running at the end.

About halfway thru the m2 proposals I was about 75% on you being RES. Which was the highest it was all game.

But I kept it to myself.

We are going the wrong way! Surely some of you old Phoagies that read the message boards should just give it a try. Maybe it will be better this time!

We have enough to start a small game. If you all would like to play 5p, then let me know.
Rob W
I'm fine with five players. This game has been in sign ups for so long that I can't imagine we will get more. But I am also fine with waiting a few more days.
Rob W
I would rather play that Lancelot game though. And I also prefer to only be playing one game at a time. So, why don't we wait and see how signups for that one go. Then we can start this game up after that game concludes. Or, start this game if that game cannot find enough players.

He had expressed interest in playing, once we were ready to go.

I wonder why this game isn't starting.
Eugene Wong
Apparently modkiwi knows that we need only 6 players. Maybe modkiwi is slow to start.

If this bot doesn't start by time Roger is ady to go, then let's all join his game.

doesnt the link show this game as 0/7 signed up? dont think it is working as intended.

nm, i see it.. multiple 244's

The owner of the app was supposed to remove the extra games.

Maybe I should just mod this. Another idea is that we could just wait for roger to start a game, and then we could just signup there.

It looks correct to me.

If you want, I can make you a mod also, and then you can try.

With the other game starting up, Rob will probably go into that game, since he expressed interest in it.

I'll mod this game, if Roger doesn't want to. [edit: I mean, I will mod and won't play, if Roger doesn't mod; otherwise, I'll play]

It seems that I ignored Rob, but it actually isn't the case.

If I recalled correctly, I sensed that we would be starting the other game...or something like that.

###

Roger agreed to mod this game, after the other game got started.

###

If any of you prefer to play in the other game, then I encourage you to mention it in the other thread.

I'm more than happy to see anybody playing 2 games.
Sarah
I'm fine with modding one as well!
Eugene Wong
It turns out that we need 2 or 3 more players here. If you've been waiting for a while to play, then come on over.
