Re: Matrix6 Redux Take 2 - D1

I'd like to hear more opinions from people on the setup first. What were you hoping to get out of this question? Just the sort of analysis that moody7277 provided. This setup is simple, but it's not completely closed, so I was hoping a more experienced player could provide some insight. As to the u...

Re: Matrix6 Redux Take 2 - D1

Oh wow, I misread the setup earlier. I thought there were 5 town players total, but that's just the vanilla town players added on after the matrix roles. My first post was completely wrong. So much for being helpful. I assumed SDK's vote for username5243 was random, since the latter hadn't even post...

Re: Matrix6 Redux Take 2 - D1

I'd like to second the thanks to Suzaku for running a newbie game. As a brand newbie I really appreciate it! Let's see if I can be helpful at all: If I understand the setup correctly, then mass claim doesn't really work unless we've lost three vanilla towns already. Then, looking at the matrix, ther...

Re: King Vs Rebels: Sandbox!

As the gold-wastes inexorably expand, the scientists begin evacuating the university. Their faster-than-light ship and research notes are moved to the tree fortress, along with the best and brightest scientists. The scientists note the resistance of the alien lands to the gold curse. Using samples o...

Re: Building a better curriculum

Well, the research generally suggests that people don't have an aptitude for mathematics (or really anything else), per se. If you want the children to be exceptional at mathematics, you start them early, and have them engage in lots of deliberate practice . That is, the question really is, how muc...

Re: King Vs Rebels: Sandbox!

Before long, the once-great kingdom is a desolate, gleaming wasteland of gold. King Midas has become distended and nearly unrecognizable, his body stretched and draped over his throne, his skin rotted to a greenish-gold, faintly glittering. His crown appears fused to his skull. When he gloats softly...

Re: King Vs Rebels: Sandbox!

King Midas, walled off deep inside his golden fortress, covets his treasures. He is consumed by greed, twisted into a wraith-like figure. His curse oozes through the fortress walls, corrupting the land outside and turning the soil, trees, and animals into gold. The rebel scientists note with concern...

Re: Matrix6 Redux Take 2 - Signups Open

I've never played a game of mafia in my life, but I've been lurking these forums for a couple of weeks now reading through the recent newbie games, and it looks like a lot of fun. I'm a little intimidated since it looks like I'll be the only one with zero experience, but count me in! Sign ups: Newbi...

Re: Variable-word sliding-window story

Story: Once upon a time, when the animals could still talk, the Mightiest Lion was a very savage beast. She used to hunt the smaller animals, and the smaller animals used to eat vegetation. However, some of the vegetation was poisonous, and some pets died from poisoning. The poison then accumulated ...

Granted. "Long enough" is about one millenium. Don't lose focus!

I wish that some fireflies lived in my backyard.

Number four (I've heard of Mafia before, but I always heard it called Werewolves).

Re: Magnetic Water Purification?

I don't know about purification, but you *might* be able to do some interesting things with the ions. Probably wouldn't be very effective though. Say you had a bunch of saltwater, just for an easy example, and you wanted to remove the chloride ions but not the sodium. If you were to run water throug...
