Alright so the bug is not a talisman.

I surprise myself to say this, however I have begun a project which I feel would compete for my attention to play this game. I've made a wikiwars inspired coop fantasy game(here) and I know longer think I could give as much focus as I'd prefer when playing a quality game like wiki wars, to all the surrounding details and forces.

Please understand if I withdraw.

Nav gets up and walks away from the burning wreckage. He reloads his rifle and starts looking for someone else to fight for the benifit of the Kaurava people.

I'm still in the rich dude's house, right? In the room with all the paintings? If so, look for something military, a painting about guns, or even something with an ambulance in it, anything that could of help to me at this moment.

I will. I wish you the best of luck on your new game.

Hey, TCM? I have a couple of questions, and I'm only not PMing because the other players might want to read your answer.

1. Say you randomly get a Wikipedia article that's, say, this? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Mortal_Kombat_characters Are we allowed to pick a character from that list of characters, and take their attributes? Like, say, using the example, you get that article and approve it, and I pick Johnny Cage? Do I get a hand-gun, his energy moves, and his Nut-Punch?

2. If we die, or leave, go on the Waitlist, and then come back after having been on the Waitlist, do we have to have the same articles? So, like, using the example I would die with Johnny Cage's abilities. When I come back into the game after having been waitlisted, do I keep Johnny's abilities? Because, on the one hand, Johnny Cage's abilities are sweet, but there's only so much you can do with not only them, but with the other articles.

Because, on the one hand, Johnny Cage's abilities are sweet, but there's only so much you can do with not only them, but with the other articles.

1. Without giving too much away, I use a random system to determine which article in a list you would get. So if I did get this List of Mortal Kombat Characters as an article, you could end up as Johnny Cage, but it is equally likely for you to get Nightwolf or Sektor. I want to keep it as random as the other articles, because allowing players to choose from a list would often give them an advantage, ex., in a List of Superheroes, some Superheros would clearly be superior to others.
You would get Johnny Cage's attributes if it turned out that way, most likely not all of them, but enough to let you emulate his abilities properly. Most likely you would get some combat enhancers as well as the ability to use his shadow powers.

2. Every time you come back, whether through death or a new game or otherwise, you get a new set of articles. This means that whether your Article Set was good, meh, bad, overpowered, or whatever, every time you spawn you get new opportunities and strategies. I believe this is one component that makes the game fun and constantly refreshing.

Thanks for your help, TCM. I really appreciate it, and I'm looking forward to what else happens in the game! Oh, and if you saw this comment earlier, with some questions...the OP answered them. I should read the OP more often.

*re-reads OP. Sees 24 hour update limit. Checks last update. 3 days ago, by me.* Hmm. Very intriguing. He's probably doing something cool. I'll just sit here, with my drink.

I was giving people some extra time to get used to the game being started up again. I'll update either tonight or tommorow afternoon.

Could you put me on the waitlist?

Yes.

Sorry, TCM. It's just the last time this happened, you were sick and it took a while. By the way, I hope you're doing better. I'll just keep watching and spectating until it's my turn. Again, really sorry.
