Abduction! - A forum Game
« on: August 13, 2011, 09:03:56 AM »


Troll Mountain was a beautiful place, overlooking the town of Fesville and the forests beyond, perfect for camping, or so Saddam thought as he lay back on the soft ground and looked up at the stars, glistening away almost close enough to touch, almost as though they were just a few miles high on a great celestial clockwork in the sky.

Suddenly the air screamed and a bright light flashed across the sky, a huge ball of fire, setting aflame the tops of the trees as it passes. Saddam bolted to his feet and watched in horror as the fireball slammed into the tree-line not half a mile from his camp-site. Without even thinking to grab supplies, Saddam scrambled into the forest in pursuit of the strange object.

He found himself on the edge of an unnatural clearing, the trees had been blasted back 200 yards all around a silvery object lying in pieces about the bottom of a freshly dug crater. He stepped out into the clearing and felt the heat rising from the object hit him like an oppressive wall. Fighting through the blistering heat he stood at the edge of the crater, looking down on the mysterious object.

When it exploded he was blasted right back to the treeline where he collapsed unconscious.

--

"Urg." He woke groggily, rubbing a bleeding wound in his head and wincing at a jagged pain. it took him a minute to make sure that everything was intact before he could even begin to piece together where he was. He blanched as the memory came flooding back, he spun around to look at the silver object in the crater, but instead all he saw were pieces and debris scattered around the crater and clearing and-- "Oh. Things just got complicated."

He was looking down on a charred and mutilated copy of himself, half wrapped in some sort of vegetative pod.

It took him all night to drag the thing back into town.

Welcome to Fesville and the forum game 'Abduction!'

You all play the role of townsfolk fighting off the first vanguard of an alien invasion. 4 People from town have been abducted and replaced by pod-people replicants. These pod people are here to find the greatest threats to their invasion and direct the saucers to attack. If they can reduce the population to a ratio of 1(Alien)to every 2(townsfolk) They will win the game, but if the townsfolk discover and kill the alien replicants then they win.

The game is split into 2 24-hour game periods starting at 1800 GMT called Day and Night

In the Day period the townsfolk vote amongst themselves wo to kill by lynching. Since they don't know who the aliens are, the aliens vote in this lynching as well.

In the night period, one of the pod-people selects a victim to be abducted by their saucer. Abductees cannot send messages at night.

You will all have received a PM telling you that you are of one of the following groups (Note I did not send PMs to all the townsfolk. If you didn't get a PM, you are one of the townsfolk):

Villager/townsfolk

These people form the majority of the players (16 to start with) In the day they have to get a pre-determined number of votes for one player to have him/her lynched.

Pod People

Pod people have replaced townsfolk and are controlled directly by the saucers above. At night, one of these sends me a PM for an abduction of one of the townsfolk.
There are 4 pod people called:
Roger, ET, Spock and Ripley

Man in Black

The Man in Black works for the Government through Area 51. He has been tracking the alien invasion for some time and has been silently killing pod people replicants. At night he sends me a PM to guess which of the other players is a pod-person. HE IS NOT ALLOWED TO REVEAL HIS IDENTITY  TO THE OTHER PLAYERS!


Survivalist

This gun-nut is trying to get himself abducted to get revenge for an anal probing many years ago. If the aliens abduct him then he will destroy a saucer, killing himself and a pod-person in the process.  HE IS NOT ALLOWED TO REVEAL HIS IDENTITY  TO THE OTHER PLAYERS!

Tinfoil hat

The tinfoil hat is a nutter conspiracy theorist who believes in the invasion and also believes that he is capable of uncovering who is what. In the DAY he will send me a PM with guesses for three people. I will lie on two of those guesses and tell the truth on one. The tinfoil hat can also reveal the MIB and the survivalist.


Good luck all.

So abductees can't talk at night but they can talk during the day?


Also:
If saddam is playing then isn't it unfair that we know he was replicated?

There was a replicant made but died in the saucer crash. I wrote the opening before I determined by random.org who were to be the replicants. Saddam has just as much chance as being a pod person as anybody else.

Perhaps the whole town was replicated and they were planning on replacing the entire town before the saucer crashed, killing all but 4 replicants. But what do I know, I'm not the narrator.
I don't know what you're implying, but you're probably wrong.

I have taken a stand in the last few games and not voted for Dann.  I thought this may lead to Dann loving me back but alas, no.

"The chances of anything coming from Mars were a million-to-one, they said..." H.G.Wells The War of the Worlds

The town's barman sighed as he locked the door to his establishment. The rumours of flyin' saucers and pod-people and dirty, dirty Liberals had kept most people away from the Watering Hole all evening. He could count the amount of money he'd made all night in his head, which he did again.

He lived just outside town and would have driven to work if he made enough money at the bar to fill it with gas. As it was, he started to walk the three miles home on foot, his trusty flashlight ready to compensate for the moonless night.

"Thirty. Fucking. Dollars." He grumbled as he left the pool of light from the town, punctuating every word with a step on the dusty road. He turned to stare at the overcast sky "You happy now?!" He roared to the great blackness "You've come a thousand light-years to put one fucking bar out of business, I hope you're happy!"

The last thing he expected was an answer.

He dropped his flashlight in shock as the cloud above him was blown away by a slowly descending circle of light. Suddenly a column of light flashed onto the ground and the barman felt his feet lift off from the ground. He screamed as he flew through the air into the glowing heart of the saucer,.

"No! Why is it always me?" Dann yelled.

****

Dann has been abducted by Alien Roger's saucer.

it is now day-time until 1800 GMT Tomorrow.

All surviving townsfolk have to vote for who they want to see lynched by then. There must be 12 votes (55% of the survivng populations) or more by then or there will be no lynch.

Infiltrating the saucer, lynching dann, and escaping doesn't quite seem worthwhile.
