Silkenfist put this game on hold. I couldn't let such a fun game die. He has kindly given me permission to continue the murder and mayhem. And maybe he'll even consent to play :-)
I can't promise anything like his quality of writing, but lets just see how things go eh?
Sign up here for the next round of Ready, Aim, Fire!
This round will be based on the classic computer game Worms.
Each of you will represent a worm, armed with various lethal weapons, in an all out battle to the death!
In addition to sending in your action of Shoot [target], Shoot air or Shoot self you may also optionally choose your weapon for attacking. I'll probably set some limitations on which weapons can be used - we can't have everyone using Holy Hand Grenades and Banana bombs.
Registration closed. First round action deadlin Wed 23 May 2007
Suggestions for future rounds:
Highwaymen (Richard Turpin, Tom King)
Fighting Jackie Chan style (Drunken Mastery & arbritary use of improvised equipment)
War (England-Scotland, American Civil War, Thirty Year's)
Horse to Horse Combat/Huns/Goths/Mongols/Romans
Gore & Splatter
Fighter jet shootout (Dogfight/WWI/WWII/Space Fighters)
Atreyu the Masked Llama
Captain Van Der Decken

LLama says: Of course, the game would also have been more balanced if you all would learn not to trust Shadow
no matter what game he's in or role he has. Duos says: I've read the archives... and Shadow frankly scares the bejeesus outta me. It's like playing with a
hypothetical cross of Lex Luthor and professor Moriarty.
If he was made of SPIDERS.
Silkenfist may have done, but I'm not Silkenfist, so I don't have that list.
So everyone please sign up by registering interest in this thread.
With regards to theme, I will probably be coming up with my own as I don't know a heck of a lot about most of the themes mentioned here thus far. I just migrated them from the previous thread
- D&D classes (fighter vs rogue vs cleric vs....)
- A night in the toy store (for some slapstick type comedy)
Ok, I found the auto-signup list in the previous thread.
Seeing as its going to be a while, I am going to treat it as auto-notify, and have PMed all the people on the list who haven't already signed up.
You still need to sign up in this thread if you want to play!
I'm figuring to leave registration open until Thursday/Friday
In again. Here's hoping that I won't get killed in the first round..
I'm VERY busy due to real life and whatnot, so I'm taking a break from all WWs and SGs. I should have warned y'all beforehand, and I apologize if I've inconvenienced any of you due to my many autolynches. I really should have stated how busy my life is.
