Ban The Game: Sign Up
« on: April 01, 2020, 10:11:23 PM »
We welcomed the Game at first. It brought something - to the whole bit, you know.

Yogurt. Yoga. Things that start with a y. Then .. well. Then it surprised us. With all our ingenuity and know how - it took us for a volley.  That is when the moth lost its light.

It brought something else. Something hidden for so long. Why we fear spiders. Why do we like to eat shell fish?!

It wasn't the toil of the day to day; not the up or down. It was almost tangible. It was that fear. We knew it, and mastered how to deal with it. We could taste it. Almost feel it -

It.

We've all held it in our hands, not admitting as much. It grew concern or jealousy, or death or invention. We all held it.

Some of us fought it off, well enough for the day at hand.

Again you are called. To sign up for the game. The rules? Well they might get defined while we play it. They might lead again to discord.  In discord is victory. Each turn, a rule is made. It is made by simple statement - the rules are defined by the language. And of course those playing. Whether they know it or not.

Discrete rules will be defined by discord with the royal council of Eris.














The Game starts in 5 days.

The Rules:
The First Rule of Ban The Game is not to ask the rules. Rules will not be restated or kept track of by myself publicly.
Rules can only affect what is done within the thread.
No rules that break the forum rules.
No impossibly contradictory rules to other rules.

Each Day:
All members of the council can put forth a rule they want implemented. Denote with [My submission]
They may then discuss these rules openly until night.

Each Night:
They vote to enact any one rule via sending me a private message.
Any player can point out any rules broken. Whether the rule was broken is voted on. Punishment can be voted on or determined by prior rules.

Winning
Winning Conditions are determined by the rules. Players may gain points or any other virtual currency or title.

Rule;
All players are allocated 5 hit points, points are lost by breaking rules, popular vote, quoting Bruce Springsteen or arbitrary narrator intervention.

If hit points reach zero you are out, if hit points reach zero and you have quoted the Spruce you are not allowed to re-spawn by dream sequence.

Spruce (AKA Bruce Springsteen, The Bitch, All that is wrong with US music that doesn't involve poodle haircuts) quotes, include recognisable sections of song lyrics that would not be considered normal parlance, song titles or dumb shit he's said.
A point is also removed if you have ever, anywhere, anytime at all, held a lighter or phone with torch on, swaying above your head, to any song, two points if that song involved being on the banks and jumping into a large body of seaward bound water.

Points should be lost by people sounding pathetic in the face of criticism.

[Wise is never allowed to play]
I have removed my posts in this thread. I have many time told, mods represent the management. So, this is the decision of the management. Management is about half of players here.

Hence, I am out.



Points should also be lost by people reacting to "pity me quitting", with other than scorn.
