Ah yes. Agatha Christie. One of the most legendary mystery writers out there. Famous for Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, and a total of 80 stories - 66 novels and 14 short stories.

Welcome, folks, to the Agatha Christie thread. This is where we talk about Agatha Christie and her literature.

Posted by: PointMaid - 04-05-2021, 15:49:12 PM - Forum: Murdergames - Replies (1299)

This game/thread will open at approximately 3pm ET April 5th.

Welcome to Schadenfreude Studios! We're looking for a few good toons to become STARS. But if you want to make it, you've got to show you have the spirit to become the best. Take out the competition, by any means necessary. ...BUT if you're not sneaky enough to keep the rest of them from figuring it out, you're going to get CUT too!

Good luck,

Lotta Schadenfreude (PointMaid)
Beatrix 'Bitta' Schadenfreude (KungFuCutbug)

Rules *SOME RULES ADDED FOR CLARIFICATION, PLEASE READ*
RULES:

All Trouble Cube and Murdergames Forum rules apply, please make sure you are familiar with them.

This is a Free-For-All style murdergame – any character may kill. No special roles. There will be Day and Night phases, but keep in mind that kills can still happen in the daytime, it's just that it doesn't give you cover of darkness (During Night Phase, there will be no visibility or interaction unless you're literally in the same location; no player posts in the game thread during Night Phase).

Day Phases and Night Phases will each last approximately 48 hours.

All actions during Night Phase must be PM'd. Please CC both hosts on your PM.

Do not reveal the contents of any PMs from the hosts unless explicitly allowed.

The success of actions will be decided by a D10 roll. A 1 is utter failure; 10 is the action worked far too well.

Make sure to preface actions with >. This calls the hosts' attention to them; actions not prefaced this way may get lost.

As in the Murder U games, if you don't get voted off after two night phases have passed since your kill was revealed, you will be allowed to leave… a STAR! Otherwise, you WILL stay on the studio campus (Consult the Studio Map). Game will go on until three entrants are left not dead.

All forms of animation accepted. If you ABSOLUTELY MUST enter a non animated character, please run it by us (PointMaid and Cutbug) first.  Game will take 16 entrants. Sign-ups will close at 2:00pm ET, Sunday April 4.

Maybe this goes without saying, but… yes, your character can die. Killing characters are encouraged to be appropriate to the genre in the manner of their kills. You want to impress Lotta and Bitta, don't you?

  GCB's Civ 5 LiveBlog: Caracalla's Revenge
Posted by: GoldenCityBird - 04-05-2021, 15:37:32 PM - Forum: Alive Blogs - Replies (5)

Welcome to my Civilization 5 modded live-blog let's play! Now, I'm a bit new at this, so I'll run you through what I did off-camera:
I am playing as Rome, led by Caracalla. This civ is very war-focused, and, to move myself away from my usual strat of "Turtle and Pray," I have disabled all non-Domination victories. The game ends when someone owns all eighteen capital cities.
I am on the archiapelago map mode. There are a lot of islands, so building up a navy should be everyone's priority. I started here:

[Image: bncmGKC.jpg]
Yep, that is ice. I am in the south pole of the map, stuck between tundra and desert. Hey, at least there's a lot of fish, and the promising chance of gaining oil.
Here are my nearest opponents/allies:
[Image: RWX0HXJ.jpg]
For the keen-eyed Jojo fans among you: Yes, I am going up against Diavolo's Passione. He started off on a landmass with the Shoshone, but somehow managed to found at least five whole cities.
Also present are two city-states: Sidon (see that purple dot on the map? That's their one-tile-island kingdom) and Wittenberg. Wittenberg is a religious city-state, but that ain't my priotiy (ignore the faith output I built a shrine for religion but missed the tundra belief). What IS my priorty, however, is the military, and Sidon can help with that if I ally with them.
In terms of non-civ mods, I have some mods that add to espionage, late-game military, and governments.
I have just converted my government from a lowly tribe to a functioning Democracy. This gives me a few buffs, including a free writer. Everything in my empire's on hold for now due to anarchy, but it'll be fine next turn.

(Insert image of unclaimed island with Old Faithful on it and my embarked Warrior next to it and I definitely succeeded in screenshotting it.)
Diavolo has not discovered boats or Old Faithful. I have discovered boats and Old Faithful. In short: for happiness and science, as well as horses, I want to settle there.
Now, turn 104. I'm just doing some basic stuff: securing a route to the new city, allying Sidon, and starting to research Iron Working to get a Heroic Epic to put my Great Work in. I also met Japan, who are apparently Diavolo's neighbours. I feel kinda bad for Oda right now.
Turn 109: Those ruins near Old Faithful? Gave an extra population to one of my cities. How did they get there so fast?
I was joined on the island by a Shoshone scout. Seems like they know how to embark. Let's hope they don't beat me to the ruins.
I also discovered another island! Ivory, horses, ruins, and some minor XP gain! This place has it all.
Some time has passed. I won't clog everything up with images, so here's the long and short of it: Diavolo took the Monarchy government, Oda took the Poetocracy government, I cleared out the barbarian camp on the smaller island, and I discovered Iron Working. I'm starting to lose grasp of Sidon, though. Maybe I should wait a little while.
Oh, and, turns out there are barbians on Old Faithful Island. Joy...
Now it's turn 119. Vatican City, another religious city-state, has been discovered in the snow. I'm sending a settler to Old Faithful, and it should arrive in a few turns.
Turn 121. I am selling whales to Diavolo, and I have completed the Liberty policy tree. Gained a great artist, getting me some more culture (couldn't pick a scientist for whatever reason), as well as a free settler.
A couple of turns later, I have entered the middle ages. One free spy, sent straight to Sidon to rig elections, has been grabbed. I found the Moors, led by Abd-ar-Rahman III. Like me, they're in a chilly spot.
[Image: Zj1tB7j.jpg]
Pictured here is Cumae, the city near Old Faithful. If needed, I can rename the city, but for now, here's a happier, richer empire.
The small island near it also now has a city: Neapolis. Both cities are important for controlling these seas in the early game. I mean, nobody's got anything that can go into deep ocean yet, so... I'd better use it while it lasts.
I've also met the Iroquois. They're far away.
Sidon sent me a catapault. Thanks, I guess.
[Image: 98jDq2I.jpg]
DIAVOLO YOU F*CKING BASTARD! HOW DARE YOU TAKE AN INNOCENT CITY-STATE? HOW??? Oh, yeah, I almost forgot you were a gangster who deals drugs to kids. Yeah... that's it. Invasion plans are a-go. I'll build up my navies and armies at Cumae, invite Pocatello or Oda to help with the war efforts, and... boom! I swoop in. I'll aim for his capital, Venezia, and, if he still wants war, liberate Valletta. This is all definitely for helping out my friends and allies and not just because I want to control the inevitable world congress. No-sireee...
Anyway, that's it for today. If you have any questions, suggestions, or anything else, don't hesitate to comment.

  The Wikipedia Band Game
Posted by: Dookie - 04-04-2021, 15:52:36 PM - Forum: Forum games - Replies (12)

This is a forum game. Go on Wikipedia, hit random article, and see what you get.

The first thing you get, no matter what, is the band name. The next people you get will be the lineup, until the full lineup (of four people) is done. The person-to-instrument in that order is Vocals, Guitar, a bass, and Drums.

The first non-person you get will be the album title. The ten next things you get will be the songs on the album. Feel free to rearrange the songs however you like.

You may add song lengths, what the hits off the album were, whatever you find necessary. Heck, you can even make a double song with two articles! In the end, you should have something like this:

Band: Toby Lightman

Lineup: Daniel Rupf, Ed La Forge, Hernán Galíndez, Zuzana Martináková

Album: Koshish

Songs:

1. North Washington, Colorado (2.59)

2. Alti (6.39)

3. Madrid Royal Conservatory (3.09)

4. Dudley De Groot (2.47)

5. Quasi-Star (5.00)

6. Cary Family (3.49)

7. Simeon Berry (4.01)

8. WTAO-FM (3.09)

9. We Shaozu/Grotto of the Repuplic (6.45)

10. Saiki Staition (4.44)

I'm thinking this would make a good progressive rock band.

  The Edit Your Post Game
Posted by: Dookie - 04-04-2021, 15:49:31 PM - Forum: Forum games - Replies (31)

To play this game, player one asks a question. Player two then responds to it. Then, player one changes their question to make the answer seem weird, rude or funny.

Example:

Player 1: What is the saddest moment in your life? Player 2: My grandma's funeral.

And then, player one changes his to something else.

Player 1: What is something you find funny that nobody else does?

Then player 2 asks a question, player three answers, and so on and so on!

(Please put the original question in spoiler text.)

Have fun! I hope this hasn't already been done.



Favorite guily pleasure song?

What do you have to say for yourself for stealing the Never Gonna Give You Up master tapes?

  Ctrl + V but you add "because of the blood" after it
Posted by: Cassie - 04-02-2021, 05:18:20 AM - Forum: Forum games - Replies (24)

"People are peculiar creatures. All their actions are driven by desire, their characters forged by pain. As much as they might try to suppress the pain, to repress desire, they cannot liberate themselves from eternal servitude to their feelings. As long as the storm rages within them they can find no peace. Not in life, not in death. And so, day after day, they will do all that must be done. Pain is their ship, desire their compass. All that humankind is capable of." because of the blood.

In honor of Apple Foal's Dai, everything in the world is backwards. Including us! So say something that's the exact opposite of what you would normally say.

Animation? Pah! What a baby genre. COPS is where it be at.

Give us a song/music piece that has a link to the previous song/music piece! You should also give a reason why the songs/music pieces are linked.
