Resident Evil Game no longer looking for subs :P

Mafia is a forum game of strategy, deduction, persuasion, clever traps, nerve and deception. Every game is unique and playing it with those who play diplomacy as well makes it all the more challenging and interesting. We have a unique mafia community on the site and we're always looking for fresh blood.

Resident Evil Game no longer looking for subs :P

Postby mhsmith0 » 18 Apr 2019, 00:57

A non-mafia game (essentially like a giant board game, except where roles are hidden so it's sort of like mafia), resident evil flavor focused (basically 60 ppl trapped in a city, trying to figure their way out against a zombie horde, except some handful of them are "bad guys") is looking for subs.

The required time commitment is to submit your orders on time, and orders process theoretically about twice a week (it's tended to be slower than that), and there may be extra time commitment involved with discussing things with fellow players. The game will probably a number of additional months, though obviously not all players will survive until the end of the game.

PM Askthepizzaguy#7803 on discord if you're at all interested.

PS To clarify, the weekly time commitment is MUCH less than a mafia game, but the game will last a long time.


UPDATE: GAME IS OVER

The game is sort of like a survival horror game.

You are given a character and you are on a map. Here is the map, just to give you an idea.

In the spoiler:

Here is the map with the subway, elevated rail, and landmark boundaries highlighted.

This map is pretty big, so feel free to open it up in a tab and use the magnifying glass.

So your character and about 50+ other characters are still alive in the game and are attempting to escape the city.

It should be as simple as walking off the edge of the map, but it is not. Something is compelling the survivors to remain inside the city. What that something is actually got revealed in one of the story posts already, and the survivors are trying to undo what was done, so they can escape the city.

By the way, here is that story post. Highly recommended, sets the tone of the game and the story.

[url="https://www.mafiauniverse.com/forums/threads/19114-Resident-Evil-Resurrection-Game-Thread?p=2818726&viewfull=1#post2818726"] M2: Greetings from Dr. Chaotix- 6:00 PM[/url]

Inside the city are a bunch of other player characters, but also many non-player characters, most of which are hostile.

As this is a Resident Evil themed survival game, most of the NPCs are zombies or other monsters and horrible creatures.

Inside the game, scattered all over the map, are items you can find, and they are randomly generated for each player so even though other folks have been playing for a bit, the map is still filled with items.

The items you can find are melee weapons, ranged weapons, sniper weapons, armor, healing items, stat-boosting herbs, and materials you can use to improvise barricades, traps, and other things that might help you survive.

When the game began, almost all the landmark buildings were closed. Roughly half have been opened up.

The solution to escaping the game could be found inside these landmark buildings, but it could be tough to get inside them, and you have to battle, run from, or hide from hordes of zombies as you attempt to make your way across the map.

Not every player character in the game is friendly, some have their own objectives, fewer still are outright hostile, but the main antagonists for the majority of the players are the zombies.

If you are slain, you have the option to remain in the game as a possible substitute player, or you can join the zombie horde and command a legion of zombies.

Why you would wish to do so, is if you're enjoying the game and want to continue playing, but also because (for fun) we will be scoring each player at the end of the game.

Your score will be based on your activity (sending in legal, on time orders, or orders at all), and based on completing objectives, like busting open landmarks, finding keys and hints, finding alternative routes of escape, personally escaping, personally surviving, personally killing zombies or other hostiles, and helping your team meet its team objectives.

And even if you end up switching teams when you die, you will continue scoring points for yourself, in your new team.

So, even if you die, it is possible to be a top scorer on your team, help your team finish victoriously, or even be the top scorer overall.

Requirements to play:

The game will take maybe 10 minutes of your time each week, minimum. It doesn't take long to tell me you want to go to tile F5 and search for items, for example. But if you meet other survivors, you can converse, strategize, and trade items if you want, so when you meet people, maybe you want to check in more often and converse and trade and plan out your moves together, if you want to work with them.

The game moves at a fairly slow pace, about 1 turn per week. Later, when more people are dead, we can do 2 turns a week, and we can knock out the turns quickly.

There is estimated to be about 6 months worth of turns remaining in the game.

That's the biggie.

Commitment:

Now, I don't expect if you sign up, join the game, and hate the experience, that you will commit for all 6 months. Frankly, I am just happy someone was willing to try to sub in, and sent a few orders before deciding the game wasn't for them. Even if that's all you can give me it is better than nothing. Hopefully more players die off by then and I have actual subs.

Learning how to play the game:

Looks complicated, because there are so many rules and mechanics publicly posted. That's just for reference, though, so after you get cozy with the game, you know where to look for things yourself.

But it is MY responsibility to help you play the game, until you know how.

If you were like a first time dungeons and dragons player, your team or the DM would go out of their way to make the experience enjoyable by telling you what your options are in any given situation, so that you can make the most intelligent decisions possible.

I can explain the pros and cons of each decision.

This game is also far, far less complicated than dungeons and dragons, and I will walk you through your movement and action turns until you feel confident you know what kinds of orders to send in.

People who have never played a game like this, or are not gamers at all, have played the previous iteration of this game and stuck through it for 6 months and had a blast.

Don't be daunted by the game looking complicated. It isn't very, for the player.

You're basically just telling me where you're going, what you're doing when you get there, and when you get there, if you're battling, searching, hiding, trading, and so on.

It's not complicated for the player. The rules and mechanics make it so that you can just tell me what youre trying to do, and there is a mechanic for that, and a rule, and it is consistently applied for all players, and posted publicly. So you know each player is being treated fairly.

You can ask me anything at any time, and especially if you answer your PMs quickly or use Discord (preferred) or some other instant messaging service, you will get a rapid response.

I will park my butt in front of the computer and answer all your questions anytime I am online.

There is no public discussion, this is a game of limited line of sight and hidden movements, because you can hide from enemies and potential threats. Only if you're within a tile of someone, or have a radio and they have a radio, can you communicate.

For all the information you could ever need about the game, this thread exists, and it is not a place you can post.

So, as you can see, it is rather easy to find what you're looking for.

There is a lot to read, but you don't really have to read literally any of that to play.

Just tell me you want in, and I will walk you through the game.

You need to look at the map, and tell me where you're going. And then, during action phase, what youre doing when youre there.
EZ Peasy.

Anyone who is interested, please contact me via discord, or PM, here or there.

I have several slots that could use people. The game took a couple month hiatus when I got sick recently, so I lost players during that time.

Thanks for hearing me out!

Grumble grumble grumble. I don't WANT to tie myself down for months, but I HAVE to, considering the game. This game says "Condude" like no other! Survival, horror theme, and RP elements. I PMed Askthepizzaguy.

Curse you and your too-fun time-sucking game!

Fyi this game had to be ended early due to host RL constraints :(

It was kind of an incredible game to be a part of, and in what was basically a mashup or mafia, diplomacy, and D&D I legit feel like I brought my A game and maybe played the best game of my life in any of these categories.

My character was Alexia Winters, a 3p (but friendly like) and as far as how things went I’ll just leave you with this gem :D
https://www.mafiauniverse.com/forums/th ... ost3383829

And if you’re wondering if my private topics and discord servers had a bunch of awesome Hamilton memes the answer is YES

More to come when I have time, happy to yak with condude and/or shadow in particular since they both played too.

For the curious (if any) my personal/factional topic is at
https://www.mafiauniverse.com/forums/th ... Channel-6E
(I'll post my discord server publicly at some point, just doing a bit more cleaning up of that as I have time)

In terms of Hamilton meme posts, I think I was particularly proud of this one in honor of my turn 8 experience negotiating an alliance with serial killer against the parasite faction (purple color role PMs, they were the evil faction who was specifically my faction's [survivor faction, sort of good guys-ish] rival in the game - one of the players in the faction was wiggles but the game host jokingly called him "buggles" on turn 9 in our hood together [when he brutally attacked me and shadow but we survived the assault and emerged victoriously :D ] and the name stuck, as least in my mind). My character was Alexia WINTERS (and shadow's was Alfred Winters, two superhuman siblings) but... well... it was close enough for government work :P
also "Ramon Birkin" was a villager role who died a little while beforehand
also someone else (Allundberg, a villager across the river) kind of WAS in the neighborhood where it happened but still, the meme was good enough to roll with :P
and obviously Jaleb was the serial killer here

Now how're you gonna get your win con through
I guess I'm gonna fin'ly have to listen to you

Talk less, smile more

Ha ha
Do whatever it takes to get my plan on the Southgate floor

Now, the serial killer is merciless
Well, hate the sin, love the sinner

Hamilton
I'm sorry Buggles, I've gotta go
But
Decisions are happening over dinner


Two siblings and a killer walk into a room
Diametric'ly opposed, foes
They emerge with a compromise, having opened doors that were
Previously closed
Bros


The serial killer emerges with unprecedented alliance power
Friends he can get to help him however he wants
The siblings emerge with support against the bugs
And here's the pièce de résistance


No one else was in
The room where it happened
The room where it happened
The room where it happened
No one else was in
The room where it happened
The room where it happened
The room where it happened
No one really knows how the game is played
The art of the trade
How the sausage gets made
We just assume that it happens
But no one else is in
The room where it happens

Allund claims
Alexia was on Jaleb's doorstep one day
In distress 'n disarray


Allund claims
Alexia said
I've nowhere else to turn to
And basic'ly begged me to join the fray

Allund claims
I approached Jaleb and said
I know you wanna kill 'er, but let's hear what she has to say


Allund claims
Well, I arranged the meeting
I arranged the menu, the venue, the seating


But
No one else was in
The room where it happened
The room where it happened
The room where it happened
No one else was in
The room where it happened
The room where it happened
The room where it happened
No one really knows how the
Parties get to yes
The pieces that are sacrificed in
Ev'ry game of chess
We just assume that it happens
But no one else is in
The room where it happens

Meanwhile
The killer is grappling with the fact that not ev'ry issue can be settled by just sniping
Meanwhile
Villagers are fighting over where to send Gigante
It isn't pretty


Then Lexi approaches with a dinner and invite
And Alfred responds with Dark Fallsian insight

Maybe we can solve one problem with another and win a victory for the villagers, in other words
Oh ho
A quid pro quo
I suppose

Wouldn't you like to kill a little bunch of those bugs
Actually, I would
Well, I propose the Alliance
And you'll provide him his help
Well, we'll see how it goes
Let's go


No
One else was in
The room where it happened
The room where it happened
The room where it happened
No one else was in
The room where it happened
The room where it happened
The room where it happened

My God
In God we trust
But we'll never really know what got discussed
Click-boom then it happened
And no one else was in the room where it happened

Alex-i-a Hamilton
What did you say to him to get him to sell killing you two down the river

Alex-i-a Hamilton
Did Kennedy know about the dinner
Was there Town Hero pressure to deliver

Alex-i-a Hamilton
Or did you know, even then, it doesn't matter
Where he gets his kills

'Cause we'll pick the targets
We're in the same spot


You got more than you gave
And I wanted what I got

When you got skin in the game, you stay in the game
But you don't get a win unless you play in the game
Oh, you get love for it, you get hate for it
You get nothing if you

Wait for it, wait for it, wait

God help and forgive me
I wanna build
Something that's gonna
Outlive me


What do you want, Buggles
What do you want, Buggles
If you stand for nothing
Buggles, then what do you fall for

I
Wanna kill in
The room where it happens
The room where it happens
I
Wanna kill in
The room where it happens
The room where it happens
I
Wanna kill
In the room where it happens
I
I wanna kill in the room
Oh
Oh
I wanna kill in
The room where it happens
The room where it happens
The room where it happens
I wanna kill in the room
Where it happens
The room where it happens
The room where it happen


The art of the compromise
Hold your nose and close your eyes
We want our 3ps to save the day
But we don't get a say in what they trade away

We dream of a brand new start
But we dream in the dark for the most part
Dark as a tomb where it happens

I've got to kill in
The room (where it happens)
I've got to kill (the room where it happens)
I've got to kill (the room where it happens)
Oh, I've got to kill in
The room where it happens
I've got to kill , I've gotta kill , I've gotta kill
In the room
Click boom
