I want to thank all those who have come before and from whom I have Shamelessly borrowed ideas for powers and roles.
Before we begin, let's recap the rules if you are new PLEASE READ THEM!!
Things to remember:
1) A full writeup of the rules can be found here This game will be more complicated than what's described there, as nearly everyone has some sort of 'special thing' about them. Doesn't mean everyone has a night power, but you never know...
2) When you vote, please do so by saying Vote: [Player] in bold. If you wish to change your vote, please say Change Vote: [Player] instead. Voting for 'Nobody' is a valid vote; if a majority votes for 'nobody' then nobody will be lynched and we'll move on to the Night phase.
3) If your role says you -may- PM me a target, you don't have to do anything at night. Even so, it'll speed things along quite a bit if you'd still just send me a PM saying "Not using my [whatever] power tonight, thanks."
4) If your role says you -must- PM me a target, and you do not? I'll pick one randomly. Or, perhaps, not-so-randomly. Don't blame me if you target someone who kills you.
5) You may NOT send a PM to anyone about this game unless your role explicitly says you can. This is cheating.
6) Do NOT edit your posts in this thread. This is cheating.
7) Please do not copy-and-paste anything from any PM I send you to the thread. This is also cheating.
8) Please do not post in this thread after you are killed. This, too, is cheating and can ruin the game if done wrong.
9) Cheaters don't get to play in any other Mafia games I run. Period.
10) Remember, it's just a game. You will get paranoid, you will be stabbed in the back by someone, you will see somebody do or say something stupid and want to smack them. Just breathe deep and relax. If things get out of hand, we do have a mod playing who will forcibly remind you to chill out if needed. It hasn't happened yet, and I'd like to keep it that way.
11) Quoth Tuttle: EXPECT ANYTHING!!!
12) Remember to have Fun it is just a Game (or is it....)
PMs have already been sent out to everyone who'd expressed interest in playing.
"Sorry General, just nervous that's all we got men and equipment spread all round the globe taking on Cobra, Rock'N'Roll's Team is cleaning up that mess in Sierra Gordo, Alpine and Bazooka are late checking in from Trucial Abysmia but Zap and Flash say that the October Guard is keeping Cobra under control in the former Soviet Bloc countries."
"I know Son, this much activity makes me nervous too. So who do we have back from their Field Operations?"
"Well, so far we have ....Woah what is this??"
"Breaker what is wrong?"
"Well Sir it seem the front gate, I tapped into their communications a while back, has about 10 -15 tractor trailers trying to enter the base, they say that they have authorization from a Major Juanita Hooper and it is in triplicate.."
"Bring up the camera's Breaker. Lets see who is here"
"Front Gate is letting them thru sending them to the motor pool!!"
"Button us up, seal all entrances and Get me those Images!"
"Yes Sir, Here they are trucks are from Extensive Enterprise's and ARBCO!"
"OH Hell .... Battle Stations, they have found us!!"
"BREAKER, COBRA is here they have FOUND THE PITT!!!"
.... the Viper, I am coming 5.75, 1st corner west.....
"We interrupt your regularly scheduled program for this breaking NEWS Alert!! We now take you Hector Remirez who is outside the gates at Fort Wadsworth in Staten Island New York, Hector.
"This is Hector Remirez of Twenty Questions outside the The U.S. Army's Chaplain's Assistant School at Fort Wadsworth, where a series of massive explosions have rocked the base, Rumors are that a massive battle took place here between the Elite Military GI Joe unit and Cobra but the Government is denying that claiming that it was no terrorist act just an explosion at the bases motor poo...
"Hector, Hector, what is going on !!!"
"Sorry sir we have lost all contact in fact the whole area has gone black!"
TWO HOURS AGO
"Steeler, I need a update!!"
The sounds of Gunfire both small arms and heavy weapons are heard through the radio. A man yells out in pain while the sound of Mechanized death is everywhere.
"They have penetrated the motor pool and are repelling down the elevator shaft now!! They had truck Loads of B.A.T.'s and just threw them at us. I got the MOBAT Up in time and took out most of them, Thunder and Heavy Metal are down but not out , Clutch and I are sealing up the stairwell now!"
"I am mobilizing who we have down here! Once they are all down, Seal us in and try and regroup with the others. THAT IS AN ORDER SON!!'
"YES SIR GENERAL"
"What happened to our Signal??
"I Duuno, Hector everything is dead, even my watch"
FIFTEEN MINUTES AGO
The battle rages on in the depths of the Pitt,
"Sir All Cobra Troops are inside the Pitt, Steeler has sealed off the motor pool and we are starting to hold...BLAM! BLAM! Breaker slumps over in his chair two bullet holes still smoking in his back
"BREAKER!!" General Hawk spins around his sidearm drawn, he barely looks as he unloads the clip into Breakers assailant.
"Scar-Face I hoped I never see your ugly mug again! Now my face will be the last you ever see!" Hawk unloads another shell point blank into Scar-Face. Blinded by rage he doesn't notice the other attacker in the room until the knife has already penetrated his body....
Left for dead his attacker leaves the room looking for another victim. But Hawk founded this team he doesn't die that easily. He crawls to a control panel and flips a few switches and brings up a hidden computer panel.
"This is General Hawk, All units go to ground, all field units complete your *COUGH* *COUGH*" HE wipes the blood from his lips "Complete your assignments and meet rendezvous with Keel Haul on the USS FLAGG." Hawk types in a password and unlocks the laptop in front of him. He fires up the Pitt intercom "I am activating the MASS Device Prepare accordingly. YO JOE!!"
A massive explosion sounds from above as the motor pool implodes sealing the Pitt off form the rest of the world. At the same time a MASSIVE EMP device is set off destroying the remaining B.A.T's and erasing all files on the GI JOE Team. Hawk Collapses to floor.
Unknown to Hawk Cobra had deployed experimental chemical weapons before descending into the Pitt, these gases mixed with the EMP and other dangers of war knocked out all the combatants. Save one who's battle helmet was sealed and protected him from the gas but not the EMP, he struggled to get it off before he suffocated and when he did he finally passed put from exhaustion.
a few hours into the future
They all awoke around the same time, they saw guns and ammunition, and the bodies of the dead, right now none knew friend from foe, they knew they were tired and they appeared to be trapped here together.
One finally spoke "Rather than just fighting again and since we don't know who is who. Lets treat the wounded, care for the dead and start to sort things out in the morning."
Quietly they all agreed retiring to the barracks around them getting what might be the only solid night of sleep for many nights to come.
