    I'm trying to think back that far... My first game was XVI, and while there was a ton of PM'ing (I didn't IM at all back then, didn't until XIX), the thread was active as well and not a ton of spam. Ditto XVIII, and that game definitely wasn't dictated by MSN or PM as I solo'd that one pretty much (didn't deal with much PM'ing either outside of the occasional Methos chat). The thread probably wasn't as active as other had been though, I don't recall a ton of conversation after the midgame. I got killed first in XVII and XIX (go figure), but from what I remember XIX was done through IM chat's a whole bunch along with PM's. However, what was in the thread was at least almost entirely IC.

    I do miss the teens (ah, life was much simpler back then, no?), but probably miss the early twenties the most. I think those games had the right blend of RP, in-thread stuff, and IM'ing. Stuff's changed along the way, the games, the hosting, the players, but objectively I can't say if things were better or worse back then compared to now. I just personally preferred it.

    Perhaps I am overstating how prevalent it was; my memory of that far back is hazy so it may just have been one or two games in particular that I am remembering. (They may have been prior to XVI, as well.)

    What I'm vaguely recalling as 'dark days' are games in which lynches were primarily decided by players, who had not posted at all throughout the day, showing up ten minutes before the deadline and bandwagoning. That's the memory I have which means I don't really like to complain about players posting too much nowadays (especially since those players are also usually active behind the scenes as well).

    I think the public thread is spammed because there is a lot more private channel comm options such as QTs, so any real discussions take place there or via PM so the public thread becomes an area where ppl blow off steam or to post inconsequential stuff to show that they are active. It is not like the olden days and it never will be - not that I was there for most of it!

    I don't think there is even that much spam. A higher activity level in the thread doesn't mean it's all spam. I don't think there's really any reason to think the ratio of spam:non-spam is different.

    I'd be willing to confine myself to a certain post limit, let's say, no more than 30 posts per game Day, provided we use the same rule (2+2) that post limits are removed 1 hour before End Of Day (to allow for vote switching, last minute claims, etc)

    If the other high-posters would agree to a similar restriction, we could keep the content level high and the spam level low, and the thread readable for even a casual gamer.

    Why am I a naive ninja? Does that have anything to do with my liking for the 1337-ninja from Mystic Revolution?

    I can live with a high volume of pizza posts as long as they aren't all longer than an Ayn Rand novel.

    All role PM's are out!

    Ummm I haven't sent out the bad guys ones, so even thought your role pm may say innocent, you might not actually be.

    Main thread to go up soon.

    Game thread is now open.

    I havn't populated the Night Zero and Morning One story posts. I have given you the essence but I have run out of time to write it up properly.


    Your role PM's have a link to some player sprites. Each of you posts should contain a sprite. I don't care if you use the same one over and over.

    However if you want to edit the sprites feel free. If you want additional material to work with just let me know.

    That's incentive enough for reading the rules and the rest of your posts in the thread.

    Some things I have made deliberately unclear but others were not intentional.

    Just to clarify around Mana orbs. These 5 types are the only ones in the game.

    Orbs:
    Air Mana
    Earth Mana
    Water Mana
    Fire Mana
    Raw Mana.

    I have also updated the Morning one update to put back in the part I accidentally cut out around the Wizard's Mana orbs.
