The Gala: Day One
« on: January 19, 2014, 06:09:51 am »

HELLO AND WELCOME TO THE GALA We're not doing this.

In eight days from now, the upcoming Queen will be introduced to the realm's nobles by the ruler of Sobia, a close friend to the belated King and one who arranged her ascension.

This game is very concerned not with the Princess herself, but with the forces behind the throne. The nobles did not take kindly to the succession law being broken in order to satisfy a Sobian fantasy of an united peninsula, and there are worries that the Queen will provide full support for their pointless as they call them wars time and time again, with only losses for the Kingdom itself. Having been shushed one time too many by the interfering forces, one by one they decide there's only one thing to be done.
There are the Royal Guards, whose single goal is to ensure the Queen is not harmed. There are various factions of assassins, then there are the people caught in the crossfire. This concludes the blurb of things everyone knows.

There will be two turns to a day, namely the day and night turns. This leads to 16 turns before the Gala itself occurs, during which a special sequence will activate. The contents of the special sequence will be influenced heavily by the preparations to the Gala itself.

All data will be distributed via PMs and all communications between players is to be passed through the GM unless otherwise permitted. Trading data covertly will both harm the spirit of the game and lead to you being kicked out if detected.

That said, the Princess herself will be controlled in this thread as if in a suggestion game, while actions - both day and night - are to be sent in via PM.

If you have any meta questions, ask them here. Otherwise, let us continue to the sheets:

Spoiler: PM these in. (click to show/hide)

Note: I'm fairly aware it'll be hard to hit the 25 player limit. It's a best case scenario. We need at least 8 to begin properly, 6 if really needed as I'd have to cut a few things out. Still, I expect it to be a murderfest.

We Madmen are very ingenious.  Sometimes it just takes just a little less sanity to pull off something completely awesome.

As this point we might as well invoke interpretive dance and call it a day.

Are you a GM with players who haven't posted? TheDelinquent Players Help will have Bay12 give you an action!
[GreatWyrmGold] gets a little crown. May it forever be his mark of Cain; let no one argue pointless subjects with him lest they receive the same.

Nothing is stopping you from playing as one.

I plan to be asleep.

In other news, we have 14 players. Signups end at the end of the 20th, GMT.

Doubleposting. The signups are now over. I'll send out the rest of role PMs after the forums reset my 20 PMs per hour limit.

Those daring may now post Princess action suggestions.

The princess calls all guards to her throne room.
That seems a little premature, seeing as how she isn't being attacked, and they may be needed elsewhere, so people don't have free reign all over the place.
Set up a Royal Guard, of only the most loyal, longest standing guards. Give them standing orders to follow the Princess at all times.

Roles now sent out completely.

There had to be a grand total of four changes from the roles that were requested upon signup. Changes were determined by dice.

Godspeed.
