Title: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Planning and question thread
Post by: LadyM on March 08, 2008, 11:23:52 am
Soon I'll be ready to attempt a fourth Sim Story. This one will be different than the others. It will take place on a Cruise Ship and will be part story, part game, part mystery, part role play and be more interactive and hopefully a lot of fun. Those who want to join will need to make a Sim of themselves (unless I already have one). In tradition, I only use Sims that represent forum members. I prefer that they look as much like the real you as possible and they must be an adult sim, even if your not irl. They don't need careers or skills, just a personality that matches your own. The setting for the story will be on an awesome cruise ship that Oviraptor made for me. I'm still decorating it and getting things ready so there is still plenty of time to get your Sim made. The Sims won't be on free will but will be playing out a story that we, as a group create.

Meet the SS Glicker:

Ship is currently in dry dock awaiting the finishing touches for it's maiden voyage.

Added for story:

Cred deck: Off limits



Here is how it will work. Your Sim will be booking a reservation on the SS Glicker for it's maiden voyage. The Sim will either be a passenger or a ship employee so it has a dual role.  On the first day a murder will happen. You will receive pm's from me with information regarding the murder and your possible connection to it. You will be told what you were doing at the time something happened and be given clues to your relationship with others. I will post story updates with photos of the event and photos of other happenings. You can discuss the murder and possible suspects {in character} in the game thread. Give each clues and ask questions. You can lie or tell the truth but in the end, everyone is trying to find out who the killer is and the killer is trying not to get caught. A 24 hr vote will happen after each murder and the Sim with the most votes will be tossed overboard. If you catch your killer, you win!! If not, then the killer is allowed to kill again and it keeps going. The new murder will be shown in story with a new set of clues. Yes, we are having a murder mystery!!

I'm going to have a poll vote open to everyone because I want everyone to be included. You need to convince people to vote for the guilty party. This is still in development so there might be more tweaking to the rules. I don't have an official start date yet but it will probably be April.

Open to anyone including those who have been in past stories. I'm taking the Sims first come first serve and I'll set a temp. limit of 30, that might change. I already know Ovi wants to be in it, so I'll put him on the list first. Danzik already sent a sim and Bodhi contacted me long ago about my next sim game. If you want to be in this, send me your sim, preferably on a lot by email. My email is in my profile. You can also send me a link to your sim page if you have one. If you want to make clothes for your sims with your forum name on it, that would be very helpful to me. I probably won't do it this game as its very time consuming but I prefer if you can do that. I'm using Bon Voyage so please don't send one made with Free Time. Now.. who wants to be in it? I'd like some people I haven't used before too.

Hopefully you have still got mine, but if not I'll make a new one. I am in.

Post by: Plank of Wood on March 08, 2008, 11:48:38 am
If you still have mine, I'd like to play, but if you don't, well, I haven't got Sims 2 on my computer so I'm screwed.
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Book your high sea adventure now
Post by: emmet on March 08, 2008, 11:54:22 am
I can make you one if you can't PoW.

Post by: LadyM on March 08, 2008, 11:55:35 am
That's also a helpful thing, if people could volunteer to help make Sims for others. I don't always have time and they don't always turn out that well. (ask Celdur :P)

PM me if you want me to take a stab at making your sim.

Post by: Celdur on March 08, 2008, 01:09:54 pm
im in...but erm...cant you surround the ship with water? it kinda looks weird when its on land like that
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Book your high sea adventure now
Post by: Oviraptor on March 08, 2008, 02:08:54 pm
As she said, it's not done yet. :P Besides, while we are playing, we wont hardly see the water anyway, cause we'll be inside.
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Book your high sea adventure now

Title: Re: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Book your high sea adventure now

I'll join, just give me a bit to make my sim.

I think you'll have plenty of time:

Either make a sim or have someone else make one (like AW) by sending a picture of yourself or a description. By the way I added you to the list.

:o

This is gonna be awesome!

 :'(  Too bad I won't be able to play...

Why not? It won't require a totally active type of play like mafia. Your clues will help with the game and with finding the killer but it's not mandatory that you post. Your character will continue to play out the story. It's similar to mafia but more like murder mystery.

I'd love to join, but I don't have the Sims 2....

 :-\

Same as first answer, have someone make your sim.
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Book your high sea adventure now
Post by: BodhiBloodWave on March 09, 2008, 08:07:14 am
Did my Sim arrive properly LadyM and was everything done correctly there? Just want to make sure :)

And now that i am in it, I'm sure I'll be going nuts waiting for it to start since I'm so giddy to be a part :P
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Book your high sea adventure now
Post by: LadyM on March 09, 2008, 08:10:34 am
Yes it did thanks. Nice looking sim. :)
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Book your high sea adventure now
Post by: BodhiBloodWave on March 09, 2008, 08:28:11 am
Thanks, rather happy about him myself(likely could have used the morphing on his face a bit more but it was a fairly close fit so decided not to :P ) if you have checked his clothes you might have seen a theme in them
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Book your high sea adventure now

Post by: ilikesanta on March 09, 2008, 12:51:10 pm
30 sims! Hmm this does sound good. I wasn't going to take part in your new sim adventure, but because you're taking 30 sims, and this sounds super cool. Well you can put me on a stand-by list if you don't get 30 sims.

You can keep signing up for stand by, I probably can use more Sims than unusual because it's a more controlled story. I have to see how things work out. Don't worry about clothes too much, some of them might have uniforms.

I still have Martyk but I would need Gorman to make one.

@LadyM - Any chance you could put what you have so far of the ship up for download?
No ;) I don't want to put it up for download yet until the story is over. I'll put up some screen shots and eventually a ship map. When the game is over I'd like Oviraptor to upload the ship to his Sim page since he created it. He did a great job on it.

Just out of curiosity, could we get the sims male:female ratio on the ship :P I'm a bit curious just how strongly it leans one way or the other

There are 3 females signed up and the rest are males so your odds are one in ten. Remember this will be different than before, they won't be on free will, this will be a progressing story played out with your Sims. There could be some interesting relationships but the focus is mostly the murder mystery aspect. In the past though, everyone has been good sports about whatever worked out in the game.

It will indeed be a manly man cruise. Pass out the Irish Spring.

No, I do the playing, you just need a sim of you. I think AlwaysWatching is offering to make sims of people.

However a lot of people are asking and it is getting quite stressful making sure you have all the right information. If someone could volunteer to take one or two off my hands that'd be great.

I have 3 right now.

Very nice! Ever since I upgraded I went from 4 gigs of RAM to 2 gigs and even though the equipment is better the problems are still the same without the extra RAM I'm used to.
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Book your high sea adventure now

I jumped from 1 gig to 8 gigs of RAM :D

Title: Re: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Book your high sea adventure now
Post by: PatMan33 on March 17, 2008, 12:44:49 pm
4 gigs is more or less standard, at least it has been for the last few years. High denominations of RAM though are becoming much more common though. I forget which one it was, but there was a Mac a few years ago that had enough ports to hold 16 gigs of RAM or something ridiculous like that. Really though, if your other hardware isn't powerful enough to back up a large amount of RAM you will bottleneck and your computer will run poorly. It's all about finding the balance.
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Book your high sea adventure now
Post by: Brandonazz on March 17, 2008, 12:47:41 pm
I work off two gigs and don't have any problems with high-end games.

Of course I don't play first persons often, but I run Crysis on medium. It doesn't bother me in the least.

But with a game like the Sims 2 and if you have a lot of expansion packs, loading becomes a pain.

Dunno about you, but I have 6 of the 7 Sims 2 EPs and 2 Gigs of RAM, and a cheap processor. I have various other large games installed too, but I am still in a house in Sims 2 5 minutes after starting the game up.

I remember playing Sims 1 with all x'cept 1 xon the computer I had back then, the loading screen with the logo in the begining took more than 5 minutes. But that comp was REALLY sucky. And my screen was so old that it had begun to get darker then normaly, it looked like night all the time when playing Sims :S

I agree my loading time with the expansions plus all the custom content became insane. But now it loads much better and fast. Plus with the new video card i can now have the setting all the way up with no lag plus i can see things i could not before such as the fish swimming in the ponds and fish tanks.

Yeah, it's been slow going. I'm finishing up decorating the ship in between real life things which unfortunately this week includes a death in the family. Once the ship is done, hopefully by next week, I can work on the Sims and get started. Here are some screen shots of what's going on so far:

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Set%20up/snapshot_0000000d_14efacdd.jpg)
This is the Dining room.

The library/computer room, probably my favorite.

(http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n100/GamingLadyM/Sim%20Cruise/Set%20up/snapshot_0000000d_14f41e98.jpg)
The Gym

I have one floor left to furnish and final touches on the rest, I'll post maps, deck plans and more photos soon. Sorry this is taking so long but hopefully it will be worth it.  :)
If anyone else wants to be in this, go ahead and sign up. I think we have more roles open for more sims.

Update: This ship is 99% completed. I'm working on screen shots and maps. The roles have been written and I'm getting close to starting. I have a question for you though. I am leaving for a real cruise on April 26th for a week. If I start the story early, it will have to be paused for a week. I know you've been waiting awhile so I'm going to let you decide. Should I start the game soon and pause for a week? or wait to start when I get back? I'll put up a poll for now.

Here are a few photos, more to come:

Post by: LadyM on April 02, 2008, 09:30:44 am
I've also decided to assign roles in a different manner. I'm going to post a list of what roles are available, by name only. You may request a certain role telling me your choice by pm or here. You should pick at least 3 starting with the one you want most. Keep in mind that each role has a pre-written biography with it. The role you receive or choose will tell you your background story. Once assigned you can't change. That is the role that you will be using when we play out this story.

I plan to move on to the Sims next to make sure I have everyone. Has everyone signed up got a Sim? If not, please post that you need help. I plan to make Slarti's and Lego's sim but I'm not sure who is left. I'll have to check the list against what I received.
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Book your high sea adventure now
Post by: LadyM on April 02, 2008, 10:33:01 am
so, we choose a character just by name without knowing the background story?

Correct! You choose by role actually, your name will be your forum name. You won't know the background story until you request your role. Fun eh? ;)

Don't worry about the first murder, it won't be you. It's already planned out. I hope the murderer won't be found right away unless you guys are really good a wild guessing. I expect there will be accusations flying all around when the game is going and mass confusion.

Remember, the vote to toss someone will be open to the forum also but you [the players] need to convince them why they should toss someone.

edit: I was checking out some Sims today and I want to make sure I have these right.

No, could you refresh my memory of what you wanted? Too much going on and I'm just now getting to the Sim part.

Plus.. I found some really great custom content after I finished doing the ship so I downloaded it and I think I might remodel some parts of it because this stuff is really cool. :P  I know this is taking a long time but I hope it's worth it. It's the biggest most elaborate game I've hosted yet.

While your waiting, I"ll post the list of roles. Please send me your choice by PM only listing your top three choices. I'll assign them on a first come first serve basis. I've decided that part of the game fun will be finding out who is in what role once we start playing. Some roles you'll know about, some you won't This way you have to talk and discuss things in here while the game is going on.

Remember, each role has a bio thats already written so you have no idea what your getting except for your job. There is also one last spot open if anyone wants it.

edit: The character's will be named after your forum name so all I need is your role choice. I'm crossing off the roles as they get filled so you know which you can choose from.

I'll look for it today. I've been sticking them in a folder but the problem is once I add to the game its hard to figure out who everyone is if I'm not familiar with them.

I updated the list crossing off taken roles. You won't find out which one you got until I send out the initial pm's. There are indeed some juicy roles hidden in there. :D

edit: His sim didn't download correctly, please email to me. Thanks!

You should put a temporery name on the back of the shirt via body shop, and get rid of it when you're starting.

Okay, I'll have to add another role.

Update: I've been tweaking the ship with new stuff and it's awesome!! I found really great content. I"m play testing the ship now. The kitchen and dining room actually employees milling around. It's awesome!

It's taking a really long time to find the right clothes and get the Sims organized. Some I"ll have to make but I'm trying to find the right clothes already made. I can't believe myself how much time this is taking but I want it to be just right. I'll post some pictures soon.

A special thank you again to Oviraptor for making the ship. I'm also going to have some help with the writing of this story, Pat has helped me write the bios for the characters and will be helping me along the way write the story that plays out. This game is becoming a team effort. It would be much harder to do without the extra help. :) Thank you Pat.

I think I'm going to wait to start the story until I return from my trip which will be the first part of May. I'm sorry for the delay but I still have a lot to do and only 2 weeks left anyway so I think waiting to start would be better. Once we get going we shouldn't have to stop. Hopefully, this will be worth the wait.

Sorry, I thought if I started this week or next it would only go for a week and I'd have to put it on hold. I thought it would be better to wait so we don't have to stop and it gives me more time to work things out. I meant to use the poll as a guide but honestly, it's almost split. This is a ton of work to get ready in between the real life things. But, I'm going to continue to post pictures and get the excitement going.

I'm still working on costumes and Sims. We have 35 Sims who are playing and there will be some NPC's around the dining room as when I play tested the game, they showed up because of the stove and restaurant podium.

Title: Re: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Planning thread - Photos posted
Post by: LadyM on April 18, 2008, 11:23:09 am
Thanks! :) I thought I had a disaster but it turned out okay. I was moving sims around and accidentally clicked the move out button on the ship, clicked okay without thinking and then realized what I'd done. I moved out my test sim with all the furniture in the place  :o So I thought I'd have to start over. I know I saved a copy of the ship but I didn't remember at what point so I reloaded my last saved ship file and it was the completed version. I guess I saved it before adding the test sim. So I did a stupid thing and a smart thing. Lesson learned: Don't rush through menus and always save a back up of something important!! :)

**NEWS update**
I've made half the Sims. The Sims personality will match the bio not your personally, though it will have your forum name. I've taken great care in finding or making the correct clothing so I hope you like it. Things are finally coming together. :)  I've decided to release the bios and Sims in a pm to each of you next week. This will give you the week I'm gone to understand your character and figure out how you want to play it. You will receive by pm your Sim's occupation and personality bio. You will also get a photo of your Sim in costume. You will find out who you know already and what room your staying in. Use the maps and pictures I've posted to figure out where you are and what the rooms look like. You can always save them to a file for reference later. Only crew members will receive a crew level map since it's off limits to passengers unless you are invited by a crew member. I'm asking that you don't share information about your characters until the story starts. Once the game begins, it's up to you how much information you share as long as its posted in the story thread. You need to work together to find your killer. When we start the story and the first scene is set up, you'll be given more information and you can start your detective work.

If you have any questions, let me know this week. This will be more fun if everyone will play like an RP and in character though it's not a requirement. It won't take long to figure out who has what role, I just want it to be a surprise for week one.



So here are photos on the Deck level. Not much there except the pool and bar.

Yes, much more interactive on the player end. I want it to be like a murder mystery party. You ask each other questions and give clues and then when its time, you decide who to accuse and they get thrown overboard (ala mafia) then you'll find out who they were and if innocent, the killer kills again. I've basically created this so I hope it works out like I want. I don't mind if people without sims want to join in and discuss it either.

I made a slide show too. First one ever.

I think she's not taking any further applications at this point, also, if any Sims still need to be made, if you PM me a picture for reference, I can make up a Sim some time by the end of the week.

In LadyM's absence I can say that unless someone drops out, it would be unlikely that another person can be accepted. All of the character sheets have been completed already and character connections and scenarios have been set up so it'd be a chore to insert another.

But like Yossi said, get your application in on the off chance that someone drops out.

As Pat said, I can't take any more sims now, all the roles have been assigned and bios written. If you want to make a stand by sim, go ahead but I can't promise I would use it.

Bios coming out this week. Story will start approx. May 5th. I'm not sure how long it will take to play out.

I told LadyM about this earlier, but I thought I'd share with the rest of you too --

Okay, so the other night, I checked this thread. Just looked around and glanced at what's been going on since I last checked (couple of weeks ago). Not much, right?
So I have this dream.. we're all on a cruise liner in the middle of the ocean and we're all playing the murder mystery in what can only be explained as some sort of multiplayer virtual reality.

My character is busy. I head from the top deck where everyone's greeting to another part of the ship. Word gets around that a body has already been found.
I believe I know how the game is played, that the murder can get you alone anywhere and kill you. So I head towards the other end of this corridor I'm in, hoping to follow a small group I'd just passed.
But wait, someone steps out of a side room at the end of the corridor. I get a little frightened, and detour up the nearby stairs.

Just about reaching the top of the flight, I pass some chick who's heading down. I quickly exchange smiles with her, and continue on my way.
Or so I try. She plunges a knife into my back, and I fall to the floor. DEAD.


Ahaha.
Sounds like fun.

Good news! The paperwork has been done and your cruise documents will be sent over the next two days. Please keep them in a safe place until you're ready to embark on your Sim Cruise. Be sure to pack some sun screen and leave your worries at home. Get ready to sail on the maiden voyage of the SS Glicker.  :)

There's a small building cheat that let's you put objects at 45 degrees (instead of only walls), and then you can put them on diagonal walls; but I guess he didn't wanna build something using cheats :P

Also, in the future if you need me to build something for you, you can ask, I'm an awesome designer too :P

It's not shaped like either, it's shaped more like this:

This isn't exactly like it; the angles are 45 degree angles. Trust me, this look far more like the bow of a ship than a perfect triangle.

For now, keep it a secret. When the game starts you can say whatever you want to say. You will be fed clues through out the game that you can use. Your goal is to find the killer.

Sadly I do not have your Sim's picture and I believe LadyM is on her break right now. I could be wrong though, but I would still want you to have your info anyway so you can mull over it.

Yeah, that.

I just remember doing an Ellis Island recreation in 9th grade.
Everyone in the class played an immigrant, and you had to make it to America through Ellis Island.

The people who were working the checkpoints kept asking for your documents.

I was in a bad mood, so I hung myself in the holding pen. The teacher went along with it saying that not everyone made it to America alive (  ::) )

I'm starting the new story thread tonight. I'll keep this thread open also for any off topic discussion or questions. Please keep the story in the story thread and try to post in Character. Remember this is a work in progress, it's a huge undertaking and I'm still figuring things out so it might take a while to get it going well.

Don't be upset if your Sim doesn't make it in the story every day. I have 36 Sims to use and I will use them all. Just let it play out and have fun!!

Let the cruise begin!!

I figure as the story progresses, you'll figure out who is playing what part. I'll make sure that everyone has been in a photo before we move on to something else. Just as you would be on a real cruise, you won't know everyone when you first get on but you meet them throughout the trip. You would know who the main ship officers are at the beginning.

If you ever do another story like this LadyM you should do a star ship like Star Trek. heck by that time you could use the Spore creature creator for aliens they encounter. Plus I know there are a ton of Star Trek custom content out there to use.

How much control do we have with our character's actions and plans? 
I was under the impression they were just characters in LadyM's story, meaning our ad lib role-playing might not match our actually activity reports we get from her.
This will make sorting truth from lies even more difficult by mixing in playful fantasy.

As Pat said, feel free to ad lib based on your character bio. It actually helps give me ideas and i don't think it will effect the story line much. The only thing you shouldn't do is push an activity ahead like it happened if I haven't indicated that's it happened. Some of my photos might be based on your comments. The more you talk, the more others will talk and you need to find out about each other.

And besides, I assume we're using (a modified version of) the GamingSteve Rules for Roleplaying, and they don't allow speaking for another character.

I don't want to appear whiny though, I just like to play my own character.

Then someone was at your desk.  I was typing when all that happened.

I think his post was in the few minutes before you ran off.

Hence your phone call.
That's what I was thinking, but then I noticed he was in his pajamas. 
Ok, let's just assume it was somebody pretending to be the purser then, or replacing me while I was off-duty.

No i ment in the story having my character declare it in the 1st place. If you did not have my character declare martial law and just call in say the coast guard or something to investigate then they would not all be mad at my character for declaring Martial Law. :P

In fact if i am going to be booted anyways i might as well have my character do the right thing...

*now sober I decide to call in the coast guard to investigate the murder.*

"I must have been out of my mind for declaring martial law."

*contact the coast guard over the radio*

"This is Capitan Hydromancerx of the SS Glicker. We have had a murder on my ship. We need your assistance. I will be heading the ship towards the coast. Please meet us there where you can board the ship and investigate my crew."

You can't do that! It defeats the whole premise of the game we're playing. If you call in the coastguard then there isn't a game to be played.

If any of you need refreshers or tips on how to RP, this section offers two good guides.

We've got the rule topic (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=9398.msg362146#msg362146) and a how-to topic (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=12232.msg525726#msg525726). Neither explicitly apply to this particular game but there is a wealth of knowledge hidden away in there that you may find useful. In addition, we've also got a bunch of great people down here who know a lot and would be happy to assist you.

Anyway, there's the belated welcome to the Storytelling & Roleplaying section for those of you who are not regulars here. Enjoy your stay! :)

Hydro, Hydro, Hydro.. why didn't I see that coming. :P Can you at least wait a few days?

I hope you guys know that I'm not an RP player but I'm doing the best I can. I'm mostly building a story using the "suspense of disbelief" theory. The Captain just wanted to keep his career clean without doing much work, like paperwork for a dead body. Much easier to get rid of it and make more drinks.

I'm actually not keeping ghosts this time. *delete* I have too many sims running around anyway without a ton of ghosts.

Also, I'm open to some plot suggestions if you want to pm me with your ideas. If it makes sense, I might use it.

Here is the Captain's role description, I guess I can post them as people leave:
Quote
Captain [Hydro]

Your years on the sea have been numerous and trying, as a Captain it is your job to keep the ship (and the passengers) on course. Authority, levelheadedness, and people skills are the cornerstones of your job description. All of the perks of a high ranking officer in the Navy are yours to enjoy; the private bathroom, personal manservant (First Mate), and the admiration of all those around you are just some of the things you'll have to look forward to!


Of course life on the sea is not all fun and games, being a captain is serious business and you didn't toil away in the brig for years on end to resign yourself to a life of obscurity. Lesser men would have let such a thing get to them over time, but not you! No, you're a man of rare form! So you tend to be a little overzealous with your mid-morning drink, big deal! And what if by early evening you're too inebriated to pilot the ship, bah, that's why the made First Mates! You're the best darn captain around and everyone knows it (If they don't they can be rest assured that you'll tell them!), so sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride, captain! We salute you!

I don't have a set time for days/nights. It takes a long time to do these photos and the game runs slow because of the sims. Plus I play it in between my real life stuff. I estimate for now, a whole day might take a few days. It will go faster as we start losing more sims.

Xeno, you should really go back and read from the beginning, you're in it a lot considering you haven't been here and I put a lot of work into this.

Here is a short synopsis for anyone who is lost:

This is the maiden voyage of the new ship the SS Glicker. The Captain was a jolly fellow who liked whales and who drunk too much. The first day went very smoothly as everyone settled into the cruise. On the morning of Day 2 the room steward found a bloody body stabbed with a sushi knife. Accusations flew and the Captain who woke up with a hangover panicked and didn't want to ruin what was left of his career so he declared martial law on the ship. The killer would be found and tossed overboard. This declaration apparently didn't sit well with everyone else and they began to suspect him. As a last resort the Captain tried to call the Coast Guard and report the murder but I fire broke out in the engine room about that time and killed the engines and radio. The vote ended and the passengers threw the Captain overboard thinking he was covering up the murder. It turned out that he was not the killer. It's now the end of night 2. The maintainence people are now working to restore the engines while every one else is going about their own business.

Indeed, the general rule for Role Playing is that thoughts and text out of books go into italics. Here's an outline of what text types mean:

A Brief Overview of Fonts and Their Meanings
--Normal Text: Denotes plot development and character actions. The bulk of the RP is made of this.
--"Text in quotations": Denotes speech. A large part of the RP is usually made of up speech.
--~"Text in quotations preceded by a tilde": Denotes a translation. If your character speaks another language and you wish to write what they say in English, put a tilde (~) before the first quotation.
--Italic Text: Denotes thought and inner monologue and is also used for flashbacks, dreams, books, and computer readouts.
** There is no need to use Italics for books if the entire post is an excerpt from a book. Just make mention that it is an excerpt from a book and Italicize that one line. (Ex: Excerpt from A History of Obano...)

It would be good to get on a standard system of writing to avoid confusion amongst the other players.

You never said he died. Why did you take out the part with the whales?

Hydro, Hydro, Hydro.. why didn't I see that coming. :P Can you at least wait a few days?

What was wrong with a spin off?

The first person he meets should not be a woman either. (ala caveman)

Disclaimer:
It was my intention that anyone thrown off the ship was presumed dead. I didn't intend for a spin off series when I did this story so that's entirely Hydro's idea and project. I removed the whale picture from my story (once again). As far as my game is concerned, the Captain is presumed dead.
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Planning and question thread
Post by: Hydromancerx on May 13, 2008, 03:47:50 am
:( Would you like me to delete my spin off topic then. :(

Cause having cross overs could be fun. Such as having those thrown off arrive on the island.

EDIT: I guess I will just lock the topic if you say he is dead. Next time you should say they die in the water when they are thrown off.
Title: Re: Gaming Steve Sim Cruise - Planning and question thread
Post by: LadyM on May 13, 2008, 04:37:36 am
No, you don't have to delete it. I just didn't want the whale part in my story thread. Once a character is gone, they can't post in the story thread, thats why I moved it to the discussion thread. If I let you do it, then I have 35 other people who might want do it too, change the outcome of what is planned.

The point is that to the people on the ship, he is presumed dead. If you want him to wash up on a beach, thats fine and I don't have a problem with your story.

I would like for you to continue it Hydro, he is presumed dead doesn't mean he is really dead. Maybe some but not all of the people who get thrown overboard could end up there.

But again, it's your choice.

Please don't be mad at LadyM you guys. If you should be mad at anyone it is me for distracting from her story. I really think it is incorporate for me to make a spin off which can detract from the whole "who did it story".

I am really sorry for making it look like the bad guy is LadyM. She is in no way the bad guy. This is my decision to stop the spin off not LadyM's.

In fairness, our characters don't know they are in a murder mystery. If you saw a load of clues pointing to someone in a real case, you'd suspect them.

You wouldn't assume that they were 'too obvious' and just chuck off someone who was lying low.

Quote
Chef [Alwayswatching]
An army moves on its stomach and it is your purpose in like to keep those stomachs full and to the point of bursting. Your years spent at the Tri-County Renaissance Fair have taught you the ins and outs of mass producing food for long lines of hungry people. Granted, cooking on a cruise ship is slightly different but so far your meals have been all the rage up on the poop deck. As long as the people eating your food are happy, you are happy, and that is what really matters to any chef. Although those rich folks tend to get under your skin, who are they to say that the meat was not tender enough or the vegetables were overcooked? If they could see what you were working with they'd drop dead; what other cook can turn a Grade C cut of meat into a Grade A meal? Who else is going to slave over a butcher block making sure that all of the freezer burn from those unkempt Chinese shipping containers has been removed? You are a god in the kitchen, your skills unequaled! With a knife in one hand and a spoon in the other you make the inedible, edible, and the unsanitary, seasoned. Health inspectors be damned!


I don't think Durgon's bio was posted either...

Quote
Cop [Durgon]
To protect and serve, that is your motto... or at least the motto you've been told to uphold every week at the department meeting. You are a Police Officer fighting in the endless struggle against evildoers. There are no black marks on your record and you are a model officer... well almost. You do have a slight fear of guns but you still carry one when on duty. The fear is totally rational though, after all you've seen an entire K-9 unit of eight dogs downed with a single bullet. If that isn't something to fear than what is? You've been good to the department and it'd be nice to say it returned the favor. Too bad the crummy apartment you can barely afford can't go out and find work. Still, you love your job and that is enough to keep you moving forward.

Those of you that were wondering who killed the dogs, well, you're getting close.

The tournament didn't have enough entries so just a few played on their own. It'll be rescheduled tomorrow.

Also, why is no one posting? Just busy on a Friday?

What would have happened if Hydro had been the killer?

I know that it would have been a damn short game.

Probably to prolong it, you would have had another person become the killer.

I'd say it's more like a context post to help run the narrative along.

Is the image not showing up Yuu? I transcripted it for you if the image does not appear for you.

Quote
-at idiot, I think his name was Vivec, should have known better. He just had to get close... But I showed him! I snuck up on him while he was in the bathroom and stabbed him good with a knife from the sushi bar. If I wanted to I could have turned him into sashimi and served him to the sh.....gs that are trapped on the... with me. The way he wr... squirmed sent a rush through my body unlike... ever felt before. Watching his blood spill across the floor had actually brought a smile to my face! I'll have to look into this a bit more throughly, perhaps I finally have a way out.

First Mate [Andrew Ryan]
First Mate is a good position to be in, after all you're the first person people will turn to when the idiot captain messes up and you're the first one who is assigned to fix up the idiot captain's mistakes. Also you... gah, let's just face the facts; you've pretty much been suckered into a position of always being second best to a complete moron who would sooner steer the ship into land instead of asking you for help. And then there's the passengers, thinking that they own the place. Where the hell do they get off thinking that this ship is their personal property? They are renters at best, loud mouthed, dirty, smelly, renters! I mean, if you were in charge things would be different, you didn't spend all those years in training to play the role of an adult babysitter.

I did the meeting thing but I tried to get things back on track. The game has a theme so changing key parts of the story like the tossing overboard shouldn't happen. You guys don't forget about your bios and character basis.

"Sounds good, as the unfortunate new captain of this ship I say we will refrain from throwing people over board, infact, when we get a match we won't throw the person overboard like savages and risk killing a innocent person because of a mismatched fingerprint. Instead, we can lock them in their room. If the murders continue then they are innocent and we saved a persons life. If not, then they probably are the killer, or the killer has stopped. If that happens then we can keep them locked up and keep a potential killer from killing people.Either way, no matter what outcome we saved a persons life."

Jesus Christ. Stop doing this!

That's the whole point of the game, we vote people off and throw them overboard.

Yossitaru was not the killer however he did love his fire. Here is his bio:

Quote
Engine Room [Yossitaru]
Sockets, drills, wrenches, awls, and at least one MIG welder. These were the things that first drew you into the field of engine maintenance and these are the things that drove you right out of it. Or at least... they would have if you hadn't discovered that the Seuss & Ottsman WXL337-Turbo Liner and Yacht engine practically fixes itself. Nowadays you can pretty much sit around the engine room passing time, maybe bring a date down there to have some fun. And during those times when you're alone you can do that thing that you discovered when you were ten... you know, that thing. Yeah you know what I'm talking about. Remember the first time you did it when your parents had left for the day? It was so big and so hot... pulsing with raw energy... and then you threw a little oil onto it and everything just exploded. Yeah, that was a pretty sweet fire... still can't grow anything on that patch of land either. But hey, that's to be expected when you've got a pyromaniac running around! Thankfully the ship is surrounded by water in case anything goes wrong.

Dentist [Plank of Wood]
Being different is a tough thing for most people to deal with. For you though, it's been easy. I mean, so you have urges telling you to be with people of the same sex. Big deal, just cram those urges down into a dark dark place and they'll simply disappear! Some would say it is bad but they have no idea how well it works. Yeah, so your high levels of stress have caused you to lose a few jobs but, again, people just don't get it. I mean, alright you used to work for the cruise line but were fired for what they claimed was sexual harassment. Those jerks fired you, the nerve! But it's cool, after losing that job you went to school and became a dentist which is awesome! You can stare at all of the pretty people while their unconscious in your chair and imagine what could be. What... that's not odd or anything, at least not for you and in the end that is all that matters. Oh, look at the guy over there with all the muscles, he must work out alot.

Quote
Prosecutor [Danger Mouse]
OBJECTION! That statement is irrelevant and you are badgering the witness. Being a Prosecutor is a hoot! Getting to prove people guilty and watching that stupid Ace Attorney squirm makes your day compete! Crushing people into a fine powder is what you thrive on! Although there is one other thing that makes you feel good and that is what you and that most hated Ace Attorney do after the sun sets. Sure you two may hate one another during the day and sure you also hate each other in the bedroom but isn't that what makes it so thrilling? You want to stop but you just can't, it is too good! To compound your problems it appears that the two of you are also on the same cruise so that's going to be an interesting time to say the least.

Scientist [Yuu]
Pumping iron, getting ripped... it's all in a day's work! Wait a second... that's the bio for the gym rat, seems like I've been doing this for so long that it has driven me a little crazy. This is the last bio I've got to do though, happy day! HAPPY DAY I SAY! Your role is the Scientist, got that? According to the spreadsheet you fear the opposite sex and because of that you pose as a member of the opposite sex in Internet chats. You use the name "sciencegrl". You chat alot with a geologist. This vacation will be good for you, the "rockman" has been getting rather aggressive lately and it scares you. Can you tell that I'm totally coasting right now? As it turns out, you're meeting up with one of the lovely people from the Internet on this very cruise! Should be interesting to see what will happen, especially since me and LadyM have set it up so all sorts of tomfoolery will go down! Was that me breaking the fourth wall? I'm not sure, anyway, this is your role... it'll be fun! Also let's see how much of a good little forumite you are. When you read this bio please post the following message in the Sim Cruise topic: Hey guys, what's up! You better like this game, LadyM has put an assload of work into it! Say thanks to her or Pat will be coming after you.

I think the whole hiding thing is going on in the Crew Deck, since both my room and GEC's are down there. Since you were on the Pool Deck, wouldn't it be strange for you to go all the way down before going to the casino, BFS?

Beautician [Anou Mawi]

Beauty is a delicate thing; it must be nurtured and cared for like a precious flower until it can blossom. Fortunately for everyone else, you have been put on this earth to right everyone else’s faddist faux pas. Being the ship’s Beautician affords you the opportunity to craft each and every passenger into a vision of perfection, your vision of perfection. Creams, lotions, powders, perfumes, lipsticks, and those little sandpaper things you use to grind away people’s feet are the tools of your trade and you would never leave home without them. God forbid you see an ugly person during your travels and are not properly equipped to set them right. It would be a waste of your ability to allow such an atrocity to go unchecked.

Of course there are always dissenters, people who would say that you need to mind your own business and get your hands out of their hair (Quite literally in some cases). But you know deep down that these people are secretly crying out for your help. They know not how to help themselves, an artist is the only cure for this deformities and by golly, you’re more than willing to take the call!

Quote
Barber [Krakow Sam]
If I told you that you'd been assigned the role of an obsessive compulsive Barber, you'd probably have a lot of questions, right? Well, unfortunately this is a recording so I can't answer any of those questions but I can assure you that your life is excruciatingly difficult and painful! It takes all of your willpower not to shave everyone clean that sits down in your chair. Still, this extra concentration to you dedicate to your work makes you one of the best, so be proud! Try not to be too proud though, nobody likes that person. But... nobody really likes being around you anyway what with you having to do everything in sets of three, it gets old fast. Although if it is any consolation, the guys in the bar love it when you treat!

Quote
General [Flamester]

TEN HUT! They say that military life is not for everyone but you tell those people to quit their whining and to grab a rifle. You are a General in the army and your job is to lead soldiers on the field of battle. Or at least you would but nowadays all you are really doing is sitting in an office poking at stuff on a computer screen. Your dream though is to be on the battlefield slaying the forces of evil and destroying injustice wherever you see it! But since you can't you usually end up ordering around whoever is nearby. At least that haven't found your stockpile of weapons and government issued battle gear, the basement is getting full though, you'll have to find another place to store them soon. Thankfully though you've been put on assignment to transport the President's prized "Potato chips that look like Machiavellian theorists" collection. If you can safely bring it across the sea with you that next star is as good as yours! Just to be sure though, you're not letting the suitcase out of your sight

Casino Dealer [Neoteric]

Gamblers beware, the house always wins! Or at least they do when you’re at home sick… seems that as the ship’s Casino Dealer, you’ve been working on a decade-long losing streak that has the card sharks running for your table. Sure the management hates you, but they can’t fire you. At least not when last year’s survey showed that 23.652% of return passengers cited YOU as their reason for coming back. Quite an achievement if we do say so ourselves. It isn’t that you are bad at cards, quite the opposite; but it seems that lady luck has a vendetta against you. Perhaps it had something to do with that incident in the cemetery when you were a teenager. That was an honest mistake though; I mean how were you supposed to know that the family was going to show up during your graveside rendition of Twelfth Night?

 

Still, you’re great with the people. They love you and by golly, you just love them too! Life is good on the high seas, it has been the high point of your life and hopefully it will never end.

Artist [Great Distance]

Oh how you long to be a starving artist... if only, then perhaps you'd be taken seriously. Instead you were cursed with a trust fund and wealthy parents, what a crappy hand you've been dealt! Your art, it is not of this world... your teachers, your highly paid art teachers, they said your work was amazing. SO amazing in fact that they couldn't bear to look at it! But when you finally went out into the world people said your work wasn't worth the canvas that the bits of paper had been pasted onto. And so your quest to become a starving artist began. You became an alcoholic, dumping every penny of your infinite fortune into the sauce. Still though things did not change, you needed to be more desperate! You tried as hard as you could but nothing ever came of it... no matter what you did, you remained nothing but a laughing stock who had also developed a drinking problem. In light of your sorrow you've decided to book a cruise to try to ease your tensions.

Quote
Maintenance [Gec]
The ship... she sure is a beautiful thing. Plush carpeting, hundreds of pretty lights, and that fresh coat of paint a totally awesome Maintenance person applied the other day. Yeah, this fine vessel is your baby and you give only the best to her. Those passengers though, they have no respect for any of your hard work. Always breaking things, scuffing them, spilling fluids... it's no wonder you hate the passengers with ever fiber of your being! Don't think that you've forgotten every little tiny incident either. Whenever a passenger messes something up it goes right into the journal! Some would say that holding grudges is bad for your heath, but what do they know? If it wasn't for you they'd all be at the bottom of the ocean, probably dead!

Yes; admitting your gun has been stolen two days AFTER someone has been shot is normally considered a bad move, but LadyM did it not Didero.

Hocus pocus!! You just pulled a rabbit out of your urethra! How did you do it? Well I don't know, you haven't told me yet. Being the high class Magician that you are, you know never to reveal the secret to the trick. Over the years you've make a lot of money, a whole lot of money! However if not for the deal with the devil you made back in your younger days you'd have nothing. Actually you've yet to pay back the money you owe to those fine people... you're a few years over due, actually. But hey, that problem is solved by moving every year or so. That was they will never be able to track you down. Not that you don't look over your shoulder, you're really paranoid about "that day"...

Architecture [Rhodix]

You know that "Time to make the doughnuts" guy? Yeah, well he about summarizes your mentality about work. You live your life in accordance to your deadlines and have very little time for anything else. A great man, I think his name was Art Vandelay, once said, "I'm an architect!". You, like our good friend Art, are also an Architect and a damn good one at that! In fact, you're so good I would bet that you could architect your way out of a paper bag if you had to. But yeah, your job is your life and your life is your job and you see no reason whatsoever to change that. Sure the kids used to cry for you at night but now they don't even expect you to come home, most of your problems work out well like that. So let's hear it for work! YAY WORK!

You don't need to hate anyone.  You just need to pay attention and deduce the murderer.

I've noticed that people are tossed of the boat in alphebetical order.  If my deductions are correct this will save 3 lives, including my own.  Then I can turn to the camera a say, "Here's what happened . . ."

You were the only one thrown off that day.

But I was wrong anyway, while Danger Mouse was thrown over before Yuu; Great Distance was thrown over before Gec.
I was hoping LadyM was going down the voting list for tossing.

Cruise Director [Celdur]
Money makes the world go round and God knows that it makes you that much more attractive as well. The shape of it, the feel of it, that intoxicating scent of sweaty palms and cocaine residue... you just can't get enough of it! If you could melt money down and bathe in it you would, heck you've already stripped down and covered yourself in coinage on several occasions. The eternal pursuit of money dominates everything you do, so of course it only made sense to take that job as a Cruise Director after acing the two week mail-in express course from the TV. Those people who can afford to go on cruises are loaded! They'll spend money on anything if you make them think that they need it. Convince them that their trip will not be complete without iceberg insurance, that their rooms will be more comfortable with rustproofing. So what if those things don't exist? They're paying for them so you might as well do the right thing and take their money.

Room Steward [Lualmoba]
Let's just get straight to it, you don't take any crap from people and you've got your own opinions about things. Like your coworkers for instance, they all suck. The sea, that sucks too. This whole job sucks, who wants to tend to the needs of a bunch of morons who think a fun vacation is being able to take the time to go all the way out to the middle of the ocean so that they can swim in a pool (stupid) and lounge around on deck (cancerous). It's not that you hate the passenger, you just think that they're needy idiots. They never seem to miss the underwear you take. Your collection is growing quite large now. The crew can rot in hell though for all you care. Yeah your attitude makes you seem uninterested in the affairs of other people... but that's only because you aren't! Honesty is your policy, why beat around the bush with things. If you think someone has a fat head and needs to shut their hole then you'll just say it. So it's a little detrimental to tips... but if you were working this job for the tips you'd have shoved off long ago.

Quote
Geologist [Slartibartfast]
They call you "Mishkin, the Rock Man", and while the last big makes sense you've got no idea where "Mishkin" came from. Actually I think he was in Goldeneye but that's not important right now. You're a Geologist, hence "the Rock Man" and the world is your oyster. You've got a great life with your one family... and a great life with your other family too. Wait... err, this can't be right... your sheet says you have two families? Alright whatever, so then do they know about each other? They don't! Oh this is like daytime TV or something! Still, that is impressive that you can juggle two families and a job. You must have really good multitasking plans and a fantastic cell phone plan. Alright so you're a geologist and have two families, got it, tell me how that works out then. Later! Oh wait, something you need to know. You also chat online with a woman known as "sciencegrl". She said she was coming on the cruise and you're here to surprise her! She knows you as "Rockman". Slap on a little cologne and test your breath, you're in for the ride of your life.

Radio Host [ilikesanta]
Shock and surprise are what butter your bread, as a Radio Host you've got the world at your fingertips. You along with your friends, the black guy, the fat guy, and the skinny nerdy guy who keeps you within the bounds of legality, make up the hottest radio show in the eight AM time slot! Of course everyone needs a vacation now and again and the radio station forced you to take a little breather after you microwaved that live duck. So you got put on this cruise and they sent you without your friends... I mean that's okay but without them you're kind of just an obese guy who is a bit of a prick. Just try not to get yourself in a spot, until you get back to the station you're on your own

It all made sense: kitchen utensils and boats, if you metagamed the metagame game.  Oh well.

It all goes back to Vivec though.  Where was he murdered(Inkling deck, but which room and whose) and why?  All the other murders are just to coverup that one.

Photobucket says my avatar is 96 X 100, but the forum smushed it to 100 X 65.  How do I fix it?
The second I posted that it fixed itself.  Weird.

Banker [Brandonazz]
You're a Banker, it's pretty sweet. You get a key to a badass vault as well as access to money, lots of money. And you know, that's awesome... really awesome actually! So what isn't awesome? Well for one thing the opposite sex sucks. All they do is take up space, nag the hell out of you, and expect you to cook dinner. You put these silly opposite sex people in their place though. Yeah, you'll just beat them silly until they figure things out. What are they going to do? Hah! Life is pretty rocking, I'll tell you that. And hey, give that great guy who wrote this character bio a pat on the back will you? He tried really hard to make this bio gender neutral!

Construction Worker [Legodragon]

Moving scaffolds, climbing ladders, and avoiding the daily port-a-potty prank are all in a day's work for your friendly neighborhood Construction Worker. When not risking your life on the job (You make a lot of crazy bets), and not performing with your friends (One of which may or may not be an Indian Chief), you usually spend your time working out. After all, being a construction worker is a demanding job. To make sure you're on the up and up you usually work out with your good buddy Hugh Guthry Hammerstein. (Just Google the initials if you didn't get my clever joke.) So yeah, you're ripped, but there is ALWAYS room for improvement. Although it might be good to stop soon... I mean you can already take Hans and Franz in a fight. But... uh... what do I know anyway? Please don't hurt me.

Mechanic [Gauphastus]

Tinkering with engines is probably the greatest thing in the world and you're a Mechanic so that works out! Even better, since you spend so much time working alone if gives you a lot of time to think about the world. Too bad you don't really like talking with people, you've really got a lot of good stuff to say. But you can't, see, because of the government. Over the years you've come to the conclusion that they are up to something... all of those government folks and their suitcases. What is in those suitcases? Could it be a bomb? Maybe Nazi gold! Or perhaps they have the soul sucker that you read about online. Nah, you're smarter than that, you know that all of those things are stupid! You're after the real government conspiracies, the ones that involve a new world order and the Eye of Providence. The G-Men will rue the day they cross paths with you; with their secrets safely stored in your brain you can expose them for the liars that they really are!

Gym Rat [Gorman]

It'll take some time though, especially since you've got that whole "protein allergy"... haha, dude seriously? You can't do protein? What kind of wimpy girlyman are you anyway? Ah... sorry about that. What else, oh yeah you're really really self conscious about your small... endowment. But hey, it's not the size of the ship, it's the motion of the ocean! Yeah keep believing that. You've really got a crappy hand in life, don't you? Oh well, at least you love yourself enough to make up for the lack of love that fate has shown toward you.

Waiter [Martyk]
In hindsight, deciding to become a Waiter on the cruise line may not have been the best idea. But ever since the jail sentence the world hasn't exactly been full of opportunity. This one is actually a shame because you really didn't do the crime. Yeah I know, I'm going all Shawshank on you now! If it hadn't been for that bastard prosecutor bribing the judge you'd have been declared innocent. Funny thing about that though, turns out that the prosecutor that so wronged you might be on board the ship... perhaps it is time for a little revenge? Normally you're a totally level person who would never harm anyone, let alone a bus full of nuns and eight police dogs... but it seems that fate decided to throw you a curve ball. All you've been able to think about lately is getting back at that vile prosecutor for ruining your life. You don't want to think about it, but you can't help it and it is eating away at your sanity.

Quote
Photographer [Oviraptor]
Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, lens, focus, ISO, ASA, parallax... yeah, you're a Photographer. What do you want a medal or something, yeah try again next time. See your pictures, they're pretty good actually. You've had a few front page photos and even got one in that fancy yellow geography magazine. If you had a single flaw it would be your gambling problem. And if you had another flaw it would be your fear of heights. Suppose you had a third flaw (Don't waste your time "supposing", I can assure you that there is a third flaw), if by chance you had this mythical third flaw it may or may not be the fact that you snapped a picture of a powerful Mafia member who's public identity is that of a priest. To make things worse, this mafia priest knows you got a picture of him making an underhanded deal behind the confessionals. Yeah and do you want the kicker? He's on the cruise to track you down and get that photo back by any means! Unless you can make it to the end of the cruise and hand off the photo, that priest is going to gut you and use your blood to cut the wine for the next confession.

Ace Attorney [BonaFideSupraman]

Eat your heart out Phoenix Wright, there’s a new Ace Attorney in town! You stand for truth and justice against those who wish to see it quashed. With the help of your underage assistants you seek out the real evildoers and exonerate your clients of any wrongdoing. Of course things are not always pretty though, the efforts of that vile Prosecutor often make your good work very difficult. The Prosecutor is not your friend, you can't stand each other, but you two can't seem to stay away from one another. Each morning you say never again but as soon as night falls you're back in each others' arms... or... bedrooms. Whatever the case the two of you somehow ended up on the same cruise so you know there’s going to be some crazy stuff going down. Just try to keep your pants on… no need to go embarrassing yourself again.

Priest [Xenomorph]

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy... er... LINE! Right so being a Priest may not be your true calling but what's it matter. Stand in front of all of the people, wave your hands around, and mumble some indiscernible gibberish that sounds like Latin. Yeah, it's just a front anyway, as soon as the service ends the goods are shipped out of the back door and the money rolls in. No cop in the world would raid a church, it is brilliant! Plus since you're working with the mafia nobody will ever bother you. Still, you're a soft spoken person who doesn't like to make waves unless you must. If they knew about your latex fetish... well there'd be a few waves to say the least. Anyway it seems that some budding Photographer snagged a picture of a small "deal" that was going down behind the church... if that picture gets out your little fetish will be known by everyone! You've booked the cruise with the sole intention of finding the photographer and getting that picture back no matter what it takes. You're rooming with the Celebrity. The guy isn't too bright but he's pumping money into your new religion so who can complain?

Performer and Killer[Space Oddity]
The plight of the artist is something you've known your whole life. From your first breaths to your current pain-driven self, life has brought nothing but sorrow. There is no room for that on stage though, a Performer is supposed to make people smile and bring cheer, even if inside they are ravaged by SHEER AND UNBEARABLE MISERY! Just give in, let the pain consume you... the pain is what keeps you going, what lets you know that there is still life within you. It doesn't matter how you do it, anything that will cause physical pain will suffice; just as long as you can give yourself the assurance that you are still human. But the pain, it still leaves a deep void. Sometimes you think it would be better to just end it all... that can't happen though and the show much go on. You'll do your little shows for the people, what else can you do? Perhaps someday you'll find solace, although it is doubtful.

I want to thank everyone for participating and voting. A huge thank you to Pat for writing the bios and helping me along the way with the story and to Oviraptor for making the ship. This was the hardest Sim game I've done but I think it turned out well. I hope you enjoyed it and it was fun. Did anyone figure out the killer by Gauph's dream? That was a huge clue for you guys. I have some information as a follow up too.

Any other questions?

Bartender [Neoadept]
Jamaican Ass-Kickers, Mind Erasers, and Trojan Horses define your work day. If you had a nickel for every idiot that asked you for a drink “shaken, not stirred” you could buy the damn ship yourself. That’s just wishful thinking though, but as the ship’s Bartender you’ve got a lot of time to ponder your place in the world and make yourself angry at the successes of others. So now that you’ve resigned yourself to your shaken and stirred existence, how about just kicking back and enjoying being you? I mean really, you work on a cruise ship, why do you have to be so angry all the time!? The tips are good and come on, most of those people out there are probably worse off than you anyway. And if by chance they aren’t you can hock a loogie into their Raspberry Tiki Twist Punch Cocktail.

Doctor [Inkling]
Helping the sick, there is no nobler cause on this great earth; although handing out seasickness pills got old after about the ten thousandth case. So after the revelation that your job probably does suck and that you're nothing more than a glorified school nurse, you were struck with an idea. Instead of wasting away in the bowels of a luxury liner making a meager salary, you'd set out on your own. Doing what you ask? Why, selling drugs of course! All that you've got to do is forge the patient reports as they come in, I mean everyone gets seasick so what can it hurt to add a few extra lines to the sheet? Ailments that require painkillers are the moneymakers, although for some reason there's always at least a few odd passengers who have a thing for freebasing exorbitant amounts of ******. Don't ask me, I don't have any problems down there and hopefully I never will... and the freebasing thing is just weird, I mean does that even work? Er... never mind, back on topic. You're the ship's doctor and you sell drugs, that'll be all. Just forget we ever had this talk and go away.

Security Guard [Met]
As a child all you wanted to do was be a police officer, you would daydream about it in class and arrest small animals outside your house after school was out. Finally, after years of dreaming and hard work, you became a police officer! Your dreams realized, what was the first thing you did? You dropped your gun at the induction ceremony and killed the entire K-9 unit... how in the hell do you take out eight dogs with a single shot? Whatever, that's in the past and, if the present is any indicator, you're not a cop anymore. "Cruise Security Guard reporting for duty, sir!" Yeah, you're rounding up lost kids and helping old people find the bathrooms now... sorry. Hey it's not all bad though, I mean you do get to be on a cruise while you work and that's something most cops can't say! Plus, the mission is still something you hold high, criminals must go and you'll do whatever it takes to eliminate them. Now if only they would let you carry a gun...

Accountant [Cobra]
Back in school, sports weren't really your thing... then again neither were academics. I guess that's why you became an Accountant. Math was your best subject even if you were still ranked thirteenth in the class, but I guess you figured that the really good math people were out curing cancer or staring at shapes or something... So yeah, accounting, that's your job although it isn't your passion. No, the one thing you are good at though is a little thing you like to call "Object Liberation". You're real good at stealing stuff, so good that you have a secret passion to be caught so that people can hear about your amazing skills. Nobody has caught you yet though but you're feeling really good about this cruise you've signed up for. I guess you finally are caught you'll just have to keep on keeping on.

Celebrity [Huckbuck]
Fame that will never die! Sex without consequences! Stepping over people who will never ever have a say in what you do in the future! You're a Celebrity! Life is awesome, it's all about YOU! YOU YOU YOU!!! And all of those hard decisions like deciding what to wear, what to eat, and what to say are made for you. That's really good because you were never good at those things anyway. All you were ever good at was looking good and memorizing hundreds of pages of lines, a skill that you firmly believe does not carry itself over into any other professions whatsoever. Anyway, I've held you here too long, I fear some of you higher brain functions may be starting to kick in. Do down to the spa and have them fix that for you. You are traveling on this cruise with the priest of the hottest new religion in Beverly Hills. That should earn you a spot on the next magazine cover. You like doing things for publicity but you have general dislike of a certain photographer that you've seen boarding the ship.

Computer Programmer [BodhiBloodWave]
Algorithms, syntax, proper notation... that's about all you have to look forward to when you wake up. The life of a Computer Programmer stuck in a corporate hell is a bleak one. Therefore you had a fantastic excuse to pick up a good old fashioned drug habit. If there's one thing you've learned, it's that there is always  someone selling drugs. Doesn't matter if it's a school play, a Bar Mitzvah, or a funeral for eight police dogs (don't ask). As long as you can get your fix things are good. When you can't though... actually you usually just stay in bed when you can't. No harm, no foul.

Probably but not soon. With Spore coming out soon, I'd lose my audience in a day. I've already had some ideas of doing another mystery/RP game in a different setting or maybe back to the original House style story. Maybe in the fall I'll work on another one.

I have to say that the changes to photobucket made editing and posting the photos much easier.

Your probably absolutely right about Spore stealing your audience.  I ask cause I may join the next one,if and when you do it, and their really fun to read, follow, and maybe participate in.

I'd like to add my thanks to LadyM, Pat and Oviraptor for making it all happen. It was fun being the killer... 8)

A bit of "bad luck" that the EA marketing machine for Spore went in full-speed during the run of this game, leaving me virtually no time for this, between work, family, holiday preparations and my blog. So full props for LadyM creating the murderous singer and her adventures, bravo!
