I ended up with two copies of Spore Galactic Adventures so I'm going to give one away in a contest.

You must write an adventure story that you would like to make if you owned the game. Don't make it too long, a short story is fine. Pictures and drawings would be good. Entries will be put up for a forum vote and the best one wins a copy. I'm willing to ship anywhere so there is no restrictions.

If you win, then you must make that story to go in the Gaming Steve sporecast.

Contest ends Sat, July 18th, voting to start on Sunday July 19th.

Good luck!!

Storytelling and Roleplaying / Sim House Season 5 - Planning thread
« on: May 16, 2009, 02:16:09 pm »
With Sims3 coming out soon I've been thinking of doing one final Sim House game using Sims2. I installed the final two expansions which gives more options so there would be some new elements. This would be a back to original type story game. One house with the Sims under free will and document what happens. Each week, you can vote out one Sim and the last one left is the winner.

So I need to make some decisions. Who should be in the game?

New people? Anyone new want to be in it?
All stars? Sims that have been in other games?
A mixture of the two?

I could take nominations of who you would like to see back in the house and let the forum vote on who to put in the game based on who has been in there in the past. Oviraptor will make a new house and we'll use some the new cool items that are in the expansions.

Please share your thoughts. I'm looking to start in June as I have some real life issues coming up soon but I can use that time to plan.

Forum Games / Left 4 Dead: Mafia Game Thread ** Game over - Zombies win **
« on: February 08, 2009, 04:09:50 pm »
Things in Riverside couldn't be worse. The unthinkable has happened, a virus has been spreading throughout the city. The infected people ramble aimlessly through out the city, vomiting and infecting others. Soon the entire city has been thrown into shambles. It seems that everyone is now a virus infected zombie, everyone except four survivors. These four people seem to be immune to the zombie virus. Being immune is only a small ray of hope, they still have to survive their way through the horde in order to get rescued. Armed with some weapons and special abilities, the Survivors take an oath to protect each other and work together.

Win conditions
Survivors: Kill all the zombies
Zombies: Find and kill the four survivors

Day phase: During the day everyone votes on who to kill. The person with the most votes will have his brains eaten by the zombies. Everyone must vote. If you miss 3 votes, your automatically out.

Night Phase: During night phase, pm me if you choose to use your power and who you want to target. Be sure to get these in on time as I will play them out according to the order and the order received. If you have questions, pm me.

Forum Games / Left 4 Dead: Mafia Game - Graveyard and Observer thread
« on: January 28, 2009, 06:14:43 am »
I'm thinking of running a mafia game. I don't have details yet but some ideas. If your interested in playing please sign in the thread. I'm thinking of starting in the next 2 weeks.

For anyone new, see the old games and the rules page here:

Left 4 Dead: Zombie Mafia

City residents are infected with a mutagenic rabies-like virus. It turns most of the townies into zombies. The ones that survived are immune to becoming a zombie. There are four survivors. Survivors must roam among the zombies trying to fit in while plotting to kill them. Each day the zombies vote to eat someones brains, hoping to get a Survivor. Each night the Survivors pick a weapon from the weapons cache and use it to kill a zombie. Each weapon has a different result and skill, some have only one use. They must talk it out and chose carefully. Each of the four survivors will also have a special skill that they can use at night. The zombies also have special skills or powers, some more powerful than the others. They are not too bright though and they don't know who the other zombies are so they are voting blindly.

Since there will be only four on the one side, there won't be any role investigating unless its a special weapon that allows that. People will have to play out the roles with skill. Zombie goal is to kill the four survivors. The survivors goal is to kill all the zombies.

Forum Games / Vampire Mafia - Spectator and Graveyard thread
« on: October 15, 2008, 02:50:36 pm »
I'm taking sign ups for a Halloween Mafia game. This will be a standard mafia game with the standard roles but there will be a 3rd faction for Vampires.

The game will have one vampire to start, he is allowed to bite one person each night phase making them a vampire minion. They will stay on the vampire team unless blessed by a priest. You will be given a total number of vampires each day phase but you won't know who they are. There could be minor roles given to the players. (ex: lovers) There will not be traitors in this game.

Win conditions: All other faction members must be dead and your faction is the only one left.

1. This is a typical day-and-night Mafia game starting in day. Rules and roles can be found here: Mafia If you've never played, please read this guideline and maybe some past games.

2. If you're dead, you're dead. You are only allowed to make posts not based on the game, other than a go town or go mafia post, but that's it. Those post must be made in the spectator thread.

3. Only the mafia faction will be able to communicate with each other. The other two factions may not pm or discuss the game outside of the thread.

4. Voting must be in bold in the form of Vote: Oviraptor. You may change your vote 1 time during the day phase. You must vote in each day phase, you cannot say "no lynch". If you miss 3 votes you will either be replaced or thrown out of the game.

5. No editing posts. It's okay to double post if you need to in this game.

6. Don't quote the Mod's PM!

7. Please don't sign up if you can't commit to playing. Game will start in a week and should last 7-14 days. All game times will be EST.

If you have questions, please ask them now so we can work it out. Game estimated to start on Oct. 23rd.

Metallic Dragon
Plank of Wood

Affiliation: Vampire
Powers: Vampire Bite (Active-Unlimited), Undead (Passive)

Role Description:
The Vampire is a sinister, bloodsucking monster out to turn good townsfolk into evil vampires like himself. He wins the game when all the players have either been turned into vampires or killed. If he dies but his Vampire Minions go on to win, the Vampire is considered to have won with them since his minions bring him back to unlife.
Vampire Bite: Converts a townsfolk member into a Vampire Minion. Kills anyone else (mafia or minion).
Undead: The Vampire can only be killed by Lynching, or Priest Blessings. Nothing else can kill the Vampire. The Pope cannot kill a vampire with his power.

* There is only ever one head Vampire per game. Only the head vampire can bite.
* A Vampire Bite has the same priority as a Psychopath kill - below Vigilante, but above all other Elimination and Information roles.
* Mafia members are killed upon being bitten.
* Vampire Minions may be bitten again to kill them, for whatever reason.

Affiliation: Vampire
Powers: Lost Soul (Passive)

Role Description:
A victim of the Vampire. Vampire Minions now work for the Vampire, and have been stripped of their regular role powers. They can only vote and talk in the day phase. They may not give out information about the vampires. Vampire Minions will know who the Head Vampire is, and who the other Vampire Minions are as they are added. The Vampire Minions win along with the Vampire - when the only players left standing are all Vampires. The Vampires cannot vote for another Vampire.
Lost Soul: Can be cured by a Priest's blessing.

* Has to be blessed by a Priest to be cured. The Pope's mass-blessing has no effect on Vampire Minions.
* When blessed, they return to the role and team they were before being bitten.
* Once they return to the role, they are mute. They cannot share any information about the vampires or what happened to them or they will die.

Affiliation: Townsfolk Only
Powers: Blessing (Active-Unlimited)
Role Description:
The Priest can bless one target every night. The blessed target cannot be killed during the night phase except by a Sniper. The Priest may not bless themself. If a priest blesses the head vampire, he will die. If he blesses a vampire minion, they will go back to their normal role.
