DAY 5 HAS ENDED

ATTACKS
TheDarkStar[2]: origamiscienceguy, Peradon
origamiscienceguy[1]: TheDarkStar

PROTECTS
origamiscienceguy[1]: Peradon

TheDarkStar has died!

Peradon(Wood) and origamiscienceguy(Earth) have won!

notquitethere(Void), Deus Asmoth(Fire), 4maskwolf(Water) and TheDarkStar(Air) have lost!

With the last element finally subdued, Wood and Earth were finally left standing. Water would be limited to large lakes at best. Fire would remain trapped in Earth's clutches. Air would never again rage in storms while its enemies held dominion. And Void was banished, thrown from the world, for to it were denied all roles in this new world. A great forest would bloom, through great valleys and mountain ranges, Earth and Wood intermingling to form a vast network of life.

Spoiler: private chats (click to show/hide)


Any feedback on the powers or mechanics? Should Void have been included at all?

Wow 4mask. What did I do to make you think I was void so much?

Good job Peradon.

4mask, again, I'm sorry for being a dick in the chat.

I think Void made for an interesting part of the game, but it may possibly be too weak to have no allies. Or my read on it may be skewed by NQT dying day 1.

I could have played a stronger Void game. It was a big mistake drawing so much attention D1.

I think that void should have been able to win 1v1 encounters with abilities.

Yeah, I felt like there wasn't sufficient incentive for players to go after void from the start. Making them more dangerous (like instawinning in 1v1 situations) might help.

End of Life also seems far too situational, especially when Void lacks and exhaustion powers of its own.

Yeah. I suppose the best thing that could be done for Void is to add more options of powers, rather than locking them to the same number of possibilities as the other players. I would've loved if NQT had picked the Darkness Beyond the Stars power (break alliance), because I wonder how that would affect the game. In hindsight, that power should either be random (but guaranteeing to hit two allies) or (less desirably) allow to pick between either manual targeting or randomizing, because otherwise you need The Abyss Stares Back.
