This game is identical with Silkenfist's game, "Ready Aim Fire!". Thank you Silkenfist for the idea. This is RAF Classic, the original, free-for-all RAF game. You can find Team RAF, the team-based variant of this game in the Forums when Lord Herman decides to continue the series.
The main rules (spoilered because I think most of the people know them already):
You have to decide between three actions:
1) Shoot the air -> Nothing happens. If you get shot you die.
2) Shoot [insert player name here] -> [insert player name here] dies if he did not shoot himself.
3) Shoot yourself -> if no one tries to kill you, you die! If someone shoots you this player will get killed instead of you and you live!
For better understanding here is a link to Lord Herman's "comic for better understanding the rules of Ready Aim Fire".
You have about three days to PM your action to the narrator (=me!). I will announce the submission date in the Narrator Posts.I will post the end of the round and start writing then, no PMs will be accepted after the end of the round post.If you miss a date once you shoot the air. If you miss a date twice in a row you get autolynched.
Here is the autonotify list (with all name changes, hopefully):
DD the Cookiemonster
They will be informed as soon as the thread is up (and I notice that it's up).
Sign up ends on Wednesday, the 23rd September 2009. or later. You will be informed.
You are members of the only party in your country and you are trying to win the primary elections for president. You know, the one who wins the primary elections will become president because, well, there isn't another party in the country.
You are all politicans with different character traits. If you want to choose a character yourself give me a negative trait for every positive trait you choose (otherwise I will choose your negative traits).
And you try to backstab and betray your fellow party members as often as you can. Remember the saying: Fiend - Archfiend - Fellow Party Member
Oh, and please keep actual politics out of the thread.
