Now imagine how long the next one's going to take... If these slowpokes don't take their actions by Wednesday I'm moving the turn forward without them

Unescargot: haunt Koshu! With butterflies! Electric ones!
[1] You send an annoying bunch of ghost butterflies as a fake birthday gift after Koshu, knowing it is helpless to their pestering since it can't hurt the dead. Of course, you accidentally wrote the contract wrong and sent the electric butterflies after yourself, signed with a forged signature of Koshu. Curse you "Koshu"! (Butterfly-a-gram sent to Unescargot)

I think you should just put a end to it. enough haunting stuff. people are waiting, FFS.

I figure at some point, you're just gonna run outta fucks to give and just off yourself whenever you get hurt at all. It's not like there's any downsides to it. Hangover? Suicide will fix that. Stubbed your toe? Suicide. Headache? Suicide. Papercut? Suicide.

Since it seems like the players are starting to lose interest I may well call it, but I still want to give a few days in case they're just busy. I know I got a complaint earlier this game that the last game was called too early because of the waitlist filling up, so I'm trying to play on the safe side.

At any rate, with death now in the mix the game probably won't last for more than two turns :P

Cult: Disperse. Do your duty elsewhere. And make sure that blood doesn't end up with the wrong people.

Flee: [no roll] They abandon your flag and run off into the wilds, calling in the local asylums to take the madmen away. Just in time for the end of the world. (cult gone)

i want to make my cult do the same thing every turn
1 3rd of cultists: recruit
1 3rd of cultists: attain submarine parts
1 3rd of cultists: builf more submariones
GOAL build an epic submarine armada once we gain say 10 submarines combine them into a mother sub then for every 5 submarines gained put one into the mother sub.
and remember cult only surface when absolutley necessary you can eat sea grass and fish drink desalinated ocean water and use the longest pipes you can to get air.


remember the end isn't "nigh" the end is now if the carp cult is to survive we must thrive in the underwater down here nukes eruptions they cant get us we will live past the end.

If rabe doesn't post in a day or two I'm gonna assume they'll redo their last turn since it's the last *important* set of actions...

Not like that will matter since you didn't even try to get rid of the plague...
Recruit: [irrelevant] They can't recruit anyone to begin with because War is making angry faces at them. Even the merpeople are in havoc because of him.
Sub parts: [5] Since you've forbidden surfacing, they craft some very nice submarine parts from sea salt and rocks at the bottom of shallower seas. (Fine submarine parts acquired)
Build submarines: [6] They craft a dozen super submarines from the parts their compatriots made, but their labor accelerates their disease giving them an extra turn... As zombies... Which isn't great given that everyone is locked underwater in submarines... (Super submarines made, 10 plagued cultists become zombies)

Plague: turn to zombyism
[6] The other cultists get turned into Uber-zombies with bonus infectivity. However, they are also rotting and won't last long if they aren't kept in a cool, dry environment. (20 cultists become rotters [3])

Zombies: Eat your friends
[2] Even the undead are repulsed by the taste of those decayed bastards.

Me: Attempt to become Koshu's spirit animal.
Rest: attempt to blow death the horsemen up with nukes.

Commune: [2] Your psychic voice doesn't transfer that well into his head, apparently your conscience can't quite overtake Koshu's body.
LAST CHANCE DESTROY: [1] They accidentally blow themselves up trying to arm the nukes. Seems they were right to be hesitant, nukes are super dangerous. There's not much left of anything. (cult destroyed, base destroyed, all items destroyed)

Death: Wipe up the rest
[2] He decides not to annihilate the few cultists left running around this gods-forsaken land. Those that challenged them have been dealt with, let the rest worship their false gods if they deem it so.
War: Take your brothers and go home
[6] He looks around for Famine and realizes he's too late to bring everyone home safe. He ascends the rest of the horsemen to make sure they all stay together. (all horsemen dead)
Pestilence: wipe up your mess
[3] He can't un-plague people unfortunately, but he can stop spraying that infectious ooze everywhere. He does so, partially because he just got dragged into the underworld by his brother War.
