I think it's endemic to the RTD subforum.  Blowing up the tavern was one of the first things they did way back in Multiworld Madness, for example.

In my experience, it's endemic to PCs. "You all meet in a tavern" is not nearly as interesting as "You all meet in a barfight."

Can't... stop... laughing...

Though I'm a little concerned this may suffer from Temple of Doom Syndrome, wherein the beginning is arguably more awesome than any other part of it.

I have a sneaking suspision that this RTD will end with most of the world in flames, a gigantic crater situated on what used to be Zabrek, the five heroes of legend brutally killed in a series of freak "accidents" and the dark warlord Gortharius, in a sea of blood and ash, on the pile of rubble that was his throne, sitting in a foetal position whimpering to himself.

Par for the course, really.

It's an intriguing idea for a RP heavy game, as everyone's character is evolving naturally out of their actions.  Maroon's the barkeeper (and a ally-maker), Blue's a coward, Yellow's a pyro, and Orange hasn't attacked anyone yet.

Especially given how most of us have played with one another at least once. Especially added to the secret actions, so all deductions about a given player's intentions relies solely on observed actions, not the way they were phrased/intended by the actor.

Just out of curiosity, who do you (waitlisters, of course; it wouldn't be fair to ask current players to guess because they might reveal themselves. For example if I say I think Brown is Derm then you know by default I'm not Brown) think everyone is?

Maybe I am.

Maybe he's lying.

Maybe I'm lying.

Nuts, I was sure Toaster was Yellow. That leaves Maroon and Teal for imminent deaths- whichever gets a miracle second wind is definitely Toaster. I shall refrain from further speculation on who derm is lest I reveal myself.

HMM, judging by color...

Quote from: My Convoluted Guess
Red - Dermonster
Orange - SeriousConcentrate
Yellow -Taricus! Toaster
Green - IronyOwl
Blue - monk12
Purple - lawastooshort
Teal - Taricus
Brown (which is not brown?!) -Scelly9
Maroon - Bulldog
Grey - adwarf

I don't think Irony would be laughing if he was one dying.

I am bound to get one correct! I just know it!

Me too, I thought it was going to be by avatar but then I wouldn't be blue at all.

And what about me makes you think I'm Maroon?
