I’m in.

But one thing doesn’t make sense. Usually when you go to a party you know who the host is. If we know that the host is the main killer then there isn’t a game. Unless it’s one of these things where some wealthy secretive billionaire invites a group of random strangers to his big house to solve a bunch of puzzles.

Why could no-one afford to live in Mordor?
Because everyone keeps chucking their valuables into the volcano.

All this talk of horror films reminds me of something.

Oh yeah. That was it. :P

Any more interest? Only 4 people have made filled in the form so far.
I’ll give it another week before moving onto step three.

Kastchey, the person with the most difficult to remember consonant cluster in their name.

I thought it was only me that had that problem!
Haha. Nope. I always have to double and triple check it.

Well done to The Shaft by Kastchey, the person with the most difficult to remember consonant cluster in their name.

You will be contacted soon about choosing a topic for September :-)

*pokes Stupot*  :tongue:

I think Stu might be busy travelling back from England. I doubt he'd mind if someone took over the next one.
Yeah, sorry. It’s been a busy week and I’d forgotten about this. Thanks for relighting the flame, Frodo.

Good horror and comedy are very similar in many ways. They are both about set-up and pay-off. You set up the scenario, you lull your audience into a false, sense of security, stringing them along for as long as possible before they lose interest and then hit them with the pay-off.

The only difference is the reaction. You either laugh or scream. As a fan of horror and comedy, my brain is wired to appreciate them both in a similar way. I can’t say I’m much of a horror writer but I do write jokes and when I see a particularly well-constructed horror scene, I will often laugh out loud and clap to myself as if I were at a comedy gig.

When you talk about “jokes” in horror you are probably confusing it for “bad writing”. The jokes to which you refer would not be funny even if the game/movie were marketed as a comedy.

It’s better if you round down. Tell yourself you have two weeks left, not three. That way you can scale accordingly and make sure you have a finished product. Those extra couple of days can be for the testing and the last minute bug fixes that no one ever leaves time for.

I'm going to venture a guess that #11 belongs to DBoyWheeler.
That would be my guess too. It’s got a furry animal, it’s family-friendly and DBoy often likes to hypothesize about “It’s like [game title] but [with a difference]”

It’s weird that there are trolls accusing YOU of plagiarism. You just have to have a basic understanding of how time works in order to know that’s not the case.

Some good ideas here but the one I voted for was my clear favourite.

I’m actually about to head to Hong Kong. Unfortunately it’s just a quick transfer through the airport.

Character - Frodo’s Curse of the Moon (heartbreaking)
Word Choice - Wiggy’s Climate Change (bleak as Hell, I love it)
Overall - Mandle’s The Ball (touching stuff)

Honorable mentions to Captain D and Wham’s stories, either of which came 2nd in each catogory for me.

I’ll go ahead and announce that I entered something. Completely forgotten what I wrote already but I guess I’ll find out soon.

Thanks for that, Sinitrena.

I didn’t really have time to sit and chew over the posts in order to really think about it and come up with any ideas. I must admit, I thought at the end we might still have s chance but everyone else was already talking like it was game over an I didnt really have time to think of a solution.

I wouldn’t mind playing a round without the fool.

Anyone got a computer to spare free.. mine might well be dead?



Have you tried

I’m also torn. But one or two things Mandle has said haven’t quite made sense to me if he’s Town. Like his implying a few posts ago that the seer might be better off outing himself early even though we have no guard. I admit he knows the strategies and I don’t but that could be him trying to use his position as resident expert to trick us into doing things in his favour. Also saying anyone who leaves it late to vote for him is a wolf was a clever move because I’m about to vote for Mandle so if you believe him then I must be a wolf. I’m not.

Glad you finally made it through the registration, Will :-)
