August 2010


Mere months after the viral outbreak in Dark Falls, in the nearby town of Southgate, Montana

There is a wave of missing persons reports

Prisoners at the maximum security prison are reported missing, presumably they escaped

Patients at the home for the mentally ill are also reported missing

Soon, terminally ill patients at the hospital begin to vanish, and their bodies are never found

Then, from the streets of Southgate, many ordinary citizens begin to disappear

No one is safe. Even the police report that some of their own have gone missing



September 2010


The tide of missing persons reports begins to ebb

The crimes were never solved, however

Later on, health inspectors shut down the water treatment facility due to code violations

Water is pumped in from elsewhere to compensate

Then.....

People begin to get really sick.



October 2010

The entire town of Southgate, Montana is quarantined by the Federal Government.

An outbreak of the Omega virus has rendered the city uninhabitable

The President of the United States is forced to make the call

The entire town of Southgate, Montana must be sterilized.

Only nuclear weapons are known to be effective in completely wiping out the virus

But Congress is still divided. The Hawk Party of the United States, although normally quite willing to take drastic measures

Opposes the current President and seeks to regain control of the Presidency in 2012

They declare the current President to be soft on global terrorism

Yet too willing to use nuclear arms on his own citizens

The current President gives an address and states that in an emergency such as this

He has the authority to unilaterally make this decision

But that he does not want to proceed without first consulting Congress

Putting the question back to them, and forcing a partisan debate

Meanwhile, the people of Southgate are suffering and dying

And when they die, their bodies do not remain still

Within a week, the bodies begin to rise

Soon, the living who have shown no signs of illness suddenly turn

And the infected begin to attack and consume whatever is in their path

The chaos is unimaginable, and no one is allowed to evacuate

Martial law is declared, and rioting in the streets reaches a fevered pitch

Days later.... the riots end

As the voices of the uninfected slowly are silenced

And replaced with moaning

And gnashing

And chomping

But not all of the citizens of Southgate were affected.

A few dozen people wake up scattered throughout the town

With no memory of the events of the past two months

And find that they are unaffected by the virus, they appear to be immune

They find that escape from Southgate is quite impossible

It is as though someone erected a massive, invisible force field around the city

Which they cannot penetrate

If they try to leave, their bodies become weak, and they lose all muscle control, and cannot breathe

Something is preventing them from leaving.

Or Someone.

It's obvious that the Umbrella corporation was involved somehow, but

Southgate Montana is actually home to one of the largest SynTech Systems research facilities in the United States

And they have been known to operate with the same reckless disregard for human life as Umbrella.

There are definitely other players involved, but it isn't immediately clear how they are involved.

But one thing is clear:

The survivors of Southgate must free themselves and escape the city

Before they are all consumed by the zombie horde.

-Type of Game-




This will be another Resident Evil-themed "Battle Royale"-style game in the same vein as my Dark Falls game. (https://forums.totalwar.org/vb/showthread.php?123875-Resident-Evil-Dark-Falls-Game-thread)
Which, admittedly, was a long time ago by now...


-Release Date-

Fall/Winter 2013

Approximately end of October


-Number of Players-

I would like to get 50 players. Please.

In order to ensure a minimum of drop-outs, replacements, and maximum participation,

I will be sending out invites for this game and reserving space for players who have not dropped out of my games

Or otherwise failed to participate in the past. As such, space will be limited, and entry into the game not guaranteed.

After I have achieved the necessary numbers, players may serve as reservists.

That's right, this game is an INVITATIONAL game. Let me tell you why, and how it works.

I will not open "sign-ups" for this game until an announced date.

Sign-ups will remain open until they are full, first come, first served.

Put simply, I will invite people to the game and if they accept, they're on the VIP list

The list of players will primarily be populated this way.

When I reach 50 players on the VIP list, I will send each VIP a message letting them know when the sign-up sheet will be open.

Then, on that date, I will open sign-ups, for a limited time.

Any VIP who agreed to reserve a space is guaranteed entry into the game.

However, if the VIP does not show up and claim their reserved spot before the deadline,

The slot will be granted to anyone who is enthusiastic about playing the game and chose to sign up.

That way, if you are interested but were not personally invited, you still have a chance to join.

You are also allowed to tell me that you wish to be invited. PM me.

This is necessary because last game, several spots went vacant.

I want experienced, loyal, dedicated players if I am going to put myself through the hell of hosting this game for you

I will therefore be inviting long-time players who have never let me down before, and do that first

This is your reward for being excellent players

If you are not formally invited to be a VIP do not take it personally

I need 50 players, not more than that

If you wish to be formally invited, send me a PM.




-------


Askthepizzaguy is the primary host and architect of the game.

Chaotix has agreed to co-host, but in case one of us is incapacitated...

GeneralHankerchief is the backup co-host.

That way this game will be completed even if Askthepizzaguy is mortal.





-Setting-


Southgate, Montana. A city which is located near Dark Falls, Montana.

The events of this game take place months after the events of Dark Falls. (https://forums.totalwar.org/vb/showthread.php?123875-Resident-Evil-Dark-Falls-Game-thread)



-Factions-




Town
Umbrella
SynTech
Zombie Horde
Serial Killer
Unknown Faction 1
Unknown Faction 2






-Game Play-




Still putting the finishing touches on the design.

Put simply, there is a cycle of turns.

Movement round- you tell me how fast you wish to move, and where, and you tell me what to do when you get there

Interactive round- you've arrived at your location. Hide, search, attack, ambush, barricade yourself in a building, etc.

Then, the cycle starts over again.

Your mission as a Survivor is to complete mission objectives and then leave Southgate alive.

You will collect items, unlock buildings, encounter enemies, and solve the mystery of Southgate

You or your fellow survivors are very likely to die before you complete your mission

And if you die, you become part of the zombie horde...











Map is under construction. This is what I have so far.

I just type faster than I can write longhand, and the org has fancy editors which makes things easier to process visually. So what I'm going to do now is design the game from scratch. The stuff you are seeing now is "Pre-alpha (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_release_life_cycle#Stages_of_development)" stage stuff, which you never see from me. You only get to see Beta and later, methinks. Here I go.





Player movement



Based on the premise of strengths/weaknesses, trade-offs, and RPS style playing concepts, players should be given options for how they wish to approach their situation. In a Resident Evil universe, there would be strengths and weaknesses to how you move around- quickly to escape danger, or slowly to avoid it to begin with, for example.

The core of the game begins here. Your options for direction of movement are limited by the map, but how fast you get there is up to you.


CORE CONCEPT: Making movement decisions.
CORE CONCEPT: A/B/C choices
CORE CONCEPT: Trade off



A- Walk

B- Run

C- Sprint


Positives: Sprinting.

When it comes to speed, Sprint is the strongest, and walk is the weakest. Obviously if you need to get somewhere fast, it makes sense to use the fastest movement speed. But what is the trade-off?

In my mind, Sprinting is what will make you winded. It is also the loudest, and prevents you from observing your surroundings closely. You are putting all of your bodies' energy into moving fast. You can't look around carefully, and you can't really defend yourself too well, aiming weapons is not even possible when sprinting at your fullest speed. As such, there are penalties associated with sprinting.



Sprinting is probably the best way to flee from zombies, because they have a slower movement speed.


Trade-off: Sprinting



You may not use "Hide/Stealth" mode. You will be out of breath when you arrive at your location. Which means you won't be able to hide properly, you'll be gasping for air.
You may not use "Search" mode. You're running too fast to look for anything, and you'll be out of breath when you arrive at your location, you'll be forced to rest rather than search anything.
You may not use "Attack" mode. You are too busy running, and then you'll be out of breath.
You may not use "Defend" mode. You are too busy running, and then you'll be out of breath.
You may not use "Ambush" or "Search and Destroy"
But that is not all. If you are ambushed by a new attacker, your combat rating will be halved for the first round of combat. Your ability to defend yourself or observe your surroundings are both compromised while you are sprinting.



Positives: Running.

Running is faster than walking. And, while running at a comfortable pace, you are capable of handling weapons. You can shoot in front of and behind you, and charge to attack someone, and so forth. Much combat is done in real world situations while running or charging. You may not be running at the fullest possible speed, but you are moving quickly. When you arrive at your destination, you will not be so out of breath that you can't immediately do a quick look around. Which means you'll suffer no combat penalties, and you'll be able to explore one tile on the map grid. You will also be able to hide in your new location. However, while you're running, you'll be making enough noise that you'll be observable, which means you can be ambushed en route.

Trade-off: Running



Any tiles you move across while running, you will not be in stealth mode. You'll only be able to hide once you arrive safely at your new location.
You'll only be able to search the tile you arrive at, none of the in-between tiles.
You won't be able to move as far as you would while sprinting.
You may not use "Ambush". They'll see you coming, after all.



Positives: Walking.

Walking means you are taking maximum care to observe your surroundings, and be ready in case of danger, and avoid attracting attention. Walking is the mode of travel when you are concerned with being ambushed, or you want to be prepared in case searching yields unfortunate results. As a consequence, walking is the slowest mode of travel, but your stealth, search, attack, and defense abilities will all be enhanced.



You automatically gain +1 to your Stealth rating.
You automatically gain +1 to your Combat rating.
If you choose Hide/Stealth Mode, you will be hidden even while moving from place to place, because you are taking the time to observe your surroundings, see danger, hide from that danger, and slip away.
If you choose Search Mode, you will search all tiles that you cross, as you move.
If you wish to perform an Ambush, this is the only method of doing so.


Trade-offs: Walking



If you are being pursued by an enemy which has already spotted you, there's no chance you'll be able to hide from that enemy as it is chasing you; they will be able to catch up to you immediately and force a combat situation. You may be better equipped to fight during the encounter itself, but you won't be able to avoid the encounter.
Obviously, this is the slowest method of getting anywhere, and the longer you stay in this city, the more dangerous it becomes.




Player Movement Choice:

A) Walk
B) Run
C) Sprint

When a player moves, he also tells me what he does when he gets to where he is going.

Next up: Player Actions.


======================================


Player Actions



Player Action Choice:

1) Defend (+1 combat)
2) Hide (Stealth mode)
3) Search



1- Defend

2- Hide

3- Search




Positives: Defending.

When a player expects the situation to be extremely dangerous and no chance of escape or hiding, it's only prudent that the player spends less time worrying about searching, or hiding, and more time trying to defend themselves against their opponent.



This mode grants a bonus +1 to combat, at the expense of being unable to hide or search at the end of the move.


Trade-off: Defending.



This mode does not allow a search at the end of the move, so if there is a necessity to search the tile you arrive at, or the surrounding tiles, then it must be done on the following turn.


Positives: Hiding and Stealth.

Hiding at the end of your turn means that, rather than engage in combat with any hostile forces at your new location, you will attempt to find cover and hide. If your opponent hasn't already spotted you and is in pursuit (attack mode) then you have a decent chance of avoiding combat in your new location.



If you are moving slowly enough to be in "stealth mode", then it's not even possible to ambush you at all, no matter your stealth rating.
Hiding means you can Ambush someone next turn.


Trade-off: Hiding and Stealth

What you must watch out for is an opponent which is specifically searching to find someone who is hidden, and kill them. This is someone using Search+Destroy. They will then use their search capabilities and pit them against your ability to hide. If they find you, they will be able to attack first.



You can't perform a Search while moving or when you arrive.
You also can't use "Attack". You're trying to avoid combat altogether.


Positives: Searching.



When you Search while walking, you'll be able to find things as you move.
Search at the end of a run is a quick action, so you'll only search the tile you're in at the end of that run.


Sprinting doesn't allow searching as an action.

Trade-offs: Searching



If you Search, there's a chance you'll unleash more monsters that were unable to find/reach you any other way.
You cannot hide and search at the same time, and since you're not defending, you're more vulnerable.



Player Movement Choice:

A) Walk
B) Run
C) Sprint

Player Action Choice:

1) Defend (+1 combat)
2) Hide (Stealth mode)
3) Search


But, in the event of combat, what does a player do? Next up: Combat choice.





======================================


Player Combat




Player Combat Choice:

X) Escape
Y) Non-Lethal
Z) Lethal

Escape: Means flee at the very first opportunity. Don't waste time engaging, just flee when possible.



Note: It's still possible you'll die.


Non-Lethal: Means engage in the fight, but flee from battle if you become critically injured and could die on the next hit.



Note: It's still possible you'll die.


Lethal: Fight to the death. You are trying to inflict maximum damage possible, and if you flee, you feel it would hurt your team's chances of victory. Every additional round of combat counts. You will not disengage from battle unless you die or all hostiles have been slain or have fled.


Note: Someone will die if two players are engaged in Lethal combat with one another, without exception.
It's also possible both will die.



Fairly self-explanatory.

Two different kinds of rounds



Movement round
Interactive round


Much like a Day and Night phase in a mafia game. The Movement round corresponds to the Night Phase in a mafia game.

The Interactive round is like a Day phase, in which there's like... discussion n' stuff.

You've moved.
You've searched.
You've hid.
You've combat-ed.

Now what? You've arrived somewhere, and there are people to see, and buildings to interact with.

As such, we'll spend a few minutes at our new location, talking with the people there (or not), ambushing them (or not), and interacting in general.

What can we do on an Interactive Round?



You may speak to anyone in the same tile as you.
You may speak to anyone in the tile adjacent to your own.
You may Interact with your environment. See: Interactions.
You may trade items between people in the same tile as you.
You may trade items with anyone in a tile adjacent to you.


Those are things you can do simultaneously.

But there are other, elective things you may also do, which are mutually exclusive.



You may now Prepare an Ambush for someone, if you're hidden. Tell me who to ambush- anyone you don't recognize, anything that doesn't look human, etc.


Or,



You may now Search and Destroy. Find your prey, and kill it! Attack anyone who might be using Hide.


Or,



You may now select a target and Pursue them next round, planning to attack them as they move away, and follow them to their new location.


Or,



You may decide your new "friends" aren't so friendly as you thought, and Attack them right here, right now, which allows them to escape since you aren't using the Pursue option. Note, you're not using Search and Destroy, so anyone who is hidden will not be affected.



This section is not finished. More may be added here.

Fleeing from combat during a Movement Phase.

You've elected to Escape from a combat situation, which means that you've conceded the battle, and therefore, the battleground itself.

Since you've decided to flee, you're no longer able to do anything in this tile in the coming "Interactive Phase".

You can't interact with the tile since you're not in it. Your turn is, essentially, skipped.

You may, however, communicate with the people in the tile on your way out of the tile. So you're limited to speaking only.

This game will be my most ambitious game to date, the only one that comes close was the previous Resident Evil Dark Falls game.


As such, I can use some help.


HOW YOU CAN HELP

1) Images
2) Music
3) I could use an artist who can draw and use MS paint or a similar program, and if you draw, have a way of uploading that image to the internets so I can use it.
4) Backup co-host.




1) Images.

I need images of dark (night time) dilapidated urban settings. Run down apartment buildings, partially destroyed buildings, interior shots of creepy places such as hospitals, laboratories, dungeons, military buildings, factories, and so forth- it has to look like a resident evil universe.
These images need to be collected, re-sized, and uploaded somewhere, where I can reach them simply by viewing, right-click, and saving them to my computer so I can re-host them. These images need to be photos, or photo-realistic.

I maintain discretion to use or not use what you send me.

Anything larger than 600*600 is too large. Please resize.



2) Music.

I need links to youtube videos or other links which auto-play the music in question without having to click a button. The type of music I'm looking for is dark, gloomy, music which fits in with a horror game. Such as, for example,


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZ4JoovKWCU

The genre of music can vary a bit, it doesn't have to be alternative rock. But I don't want any Justin Bieber, thank you. You get the picture?

I have discretion to use or not use it.



3) Artist

I'm contemplating begging Crazed Rabbit for his help again, but if you think you have real artistic chops, then PM me an image of YOUR original artwork signed by your user name, so I know it's yours.

A test image, create for me a picture of the interior of a hospital with zombies in it, and also, an exterior shot of the same building, in a different image.

If your image meets my quality standards, I may hire you as my artist for this game. I'd be willing to PayPal you actual money (not much... 10 dollars, 20 dollars, depending on how much you do for me) if I like your material and I end up using a lot of it. I'll tell you beforehand how much I am willing to pay to commission additional artwork.

Initially- nothing. You're volunteering, remember? I may not use your work at all. But if I know I'm going to use a lot of your work.... If I like what I see, and you can produce it well and within a reasonable time frame, I'll say 10 bucks, I need another 10 images. You do this work for me, and I end up using it, I'll PayPal you the cash. I'll tell you how many and what kind of image I need. You make those images, you get the fundage. I'll add on more money if I need additional images, and I'll tell you what and how many, and tell you how much I can spend.

If you're going to be making a lot of high quality artwork for this game, then I am willing to compensate you for it, as much as I can afford and as much as I need for the game. But initially, you're just volunteering, and you've got to demonstrate your artistic chops to move on to the next level. Since I want all the drawn artwork to match in style, I'd prefer just one artist for the game.

I don't want you to waste a lot of time making stuff for my game if you won't be hired as the artist. So please, don't make anything I didn't ask you to make, unless it's for your own personal fun.

Again, I maintain full discretion whether I use your work or not. But if I say I'll pay you for X, I'll pay you for X. You have my word.


4) Backup co-host

In case Chaotix or myself are unable to continue.

You must have experience hosting a LARGE mafia game that is non-vanilla. This game is far more complicated and far more work than any mafia game ever will be. As such, as a bare minimum, you must be a candidate with experience and dedication to forum gaming. I will not consider you unless you've hosted a complex nonvanilla mafia game with more than 30 people. Otherwise, you have no idea what you're getting into and you will quit. Trust me.

You may join the game as a player, but if a host drops out, you step up and get all the host notes and take over. Volunteers can apply via PM. Show me your body of work and tell me why you want to be a backup cohost.

I maintain full discretion whether I turn this game over to you or not. It's my baby.





How to contribute:

Condense what you're sending me down to a url link. I don't need a whole lot of text to read.

Just links to music, or images, and I'll go through them when I have time. Indicate that this is music or images in the title of the PM

If you're sending me original artistic material and are applying to be the game artist, indicate that in the title of the PM.

If you want to be a backup host, indicate that in the title of the PM

If you don't reduce it down to the links, or use the indicators I've requested, it will make it harder for me, and it will make it less likely I'll use your material.

Please feel free to subscribe to this thread, Lookie-Lou's, because it will be updated frequently from now until the game begins.

Continuing with the game design phase.



Last game we had a couple too many categories for stats, in my opinion. Seven categories, each with a normal scale of 1-10, but could be increased beyond 10.
Sample stats:

(35/70 points)
Strength: 5
Combat: 5
Vitality: 5
Speed: 5
Stealth: 5
Awareness: 5
Luck: 5


Luck was related to saving throws and finding rare items. I may keep Luck as a category, but I want to decouple it from the new category of "Search" rating. Awareness was related to anti-stealth and finding items, but I want to just simplify this category to "Search", which will be used for both.

I will keep Strength, which will affect melee weapons as well as determine your ability to break down certain barriers. Consider strength to be your ability to move where you want to move even when there's a locked door in your way. Some doors cannot be broken down even with strength, but could conceivably be demolished by other means, or simply unlocked.

Combat will return. This is your ability to hit versus your opponent's ability to dodge.

Vitality is HP, same as before, no HP means you die.

I plan to eliminate Speed as a category for most players. Zombies will be slower, people will be faster, special monsters may be faster, but you cannot alter this category, like you did in the previous game.

Stealth will be a category once again. This affects how well you can hide, which can help you survive, or make surprise attacks and ambushes.

NEW SYSTEM:

Strength-
Combat-
Vitality-
Search-
Stealth-
Speed: 5 - every human will have the same speed. You can no longer alter this category.
Luck: 5 - I will determine your luck rating based on your total available stat points. Fewer points means higher Luck. More points means lower Luck. You can no longer alter this category.

You my distribute these how you wish, as long as each category has at least 1. Sample-

Strength- 1
Combat- 4
Vitality- 7
Search- 7
Stealth- 1
--------------
Speed: 5
Luck: 7

This build means that you'll be able to find things more easily, and survive damage, but won't be very strong or stealthy. You have sub-par combat, but you aren't useless in a fight.

Since you're a basic townie, your luck is higher than average. Which means your odds of surviving otherwise fatal damage are higher than the norm.

[I]Awareness- no longer exists. Everyone has the same range of sight.

=========================


Items- Many of the same from the previous game, such as healing items.
I will reduce the sheer number of items, however. There was no need for all that diversity.

Weapons- many from the previous game, a bit less diversity. What I'll do is have a general category of weapons with the same stats, so you might have a different looking but identical weapon, but with still enough different weapon stats to make the game interesting. Like the previous game, different weapons may have the same damage rate.

I'll design these last, what's more important are the game mechanics, the setting, the map, the teams, and objectives.

Attempt to break into the building using Strength, and search the building or barricade.
Attempt to break into the building using an item, and search the building or barricade.
Use the key which opens this building, and search the building or barricade.
[B]Climb to the top of the building and barricade yourself against the zombie horde. [I]-Makes escape impossible during combat, may improve your combat against certain enemies like El Gigante-
Barricade yourself inside the building.[I]-Makes escape impossible during combat, may improve your combat against certain enemies like zombies-

And so forth. Exact options determined by location.


Certain buildings will have different barricade ratings for Interior, and Roof.

Some buildings are perfect for repelling a zombie attack. Others, well, not so great.
Some buildings are perfect for repelling a different kind of attacker. Others will crumble to dust with you on top, which is bad news for you.
These ratings will be hidden, but simply inspecting the building will tell you what kind of building it is, and what sort of architecture it has. Then you can make an educated guess. But if the building is more dilapidated than it appears, you could be in for a rough ride.

SCORING/OBJECTIVES
Early draft



Scoring should be based on:

TEAM PERFORMANCE (40%)
INDIVIDUAL PERFORMANCE (40%)
ACTIVITY (20%)

If your team does well, then you will do better, even if you died early. So it is possible to play selflessly, and try to do anything that helps your team, even at great personal risk. Though living is a good idea.

Your individual performance will be based on what you managed to accomplish during the game, just like last game. Perhaps I will reveal the exact breakdown of your scoring potential before the game begins, so you understand how to maximize your score. Fair warning, some accomplishments are riskier than others, and you could die if you fail...

Your activity guarantees points. If you send in orders every phase, you earn points, period. If you die, you can continue play as a zombie, and continue earning points. And, the zombies will be given opportunities to score just as well as a living human, so it's not the end of the world, but the zombie team has to do well for you to become a top scorer here.




TEAM OBJECTIVES

Townsfolk should have an objective similar to the last game. During the course of the game, townies will die. If they don't die, more and more monsters will enter the playing field until they start dying.

So death is guaranteed to happen. :evil:

The townsfolk, as a group, will get bonus points for the group's overall performance.


1) Number of townies who escape from Dark Falls
2) Number of zombies slain by townies.
3) Mission objectives completed by townies.


The better the team scores, the better each individual townie scores. So, if you slay a ton of zombies and then die, you can help boost the town's overall score.

This is one way you can be selfless in this game and still can has fun.

If you take risks and complete mission objectives, town scores better overall.




INDIVIDUAL OBJECTIVES- "Good" townies.

1) Personally find a method of escape from Dark Falls. (even if you fail, you get points for finding a way out)
2) Escape from Dark Falls.
3) Survive.
4) Slay non-humans.
5) Personally complete a mission objective.
6) Personally obtain a mission-critical item.
7) Unlock a mission-critical building

And so forth.


There will be anti-town teams, with competing objectives, too.

Uploader of pictures? I can lend you my Picasa which is very handy for resizings.

Zombies in hospitals? I happen to have a copy of the game Blood. In it there are zombies. And a couple hospital levels. And decapitated bodies. And entrails. And a doomsday cult focused on taking over the world and worshipping a god of darkness. And more entrails. And more blood.

Town
Umbrella
SynTech
Zombie Horde
Serial Killer
Unknown Faction 1
Unknown Faction 2


These are the Factions for Resident Evil 2

Town- The survivors of the outbreak in Southgate, Montana. Although they were not transformed into zombies, something terrible did happen to them, and in order to escape from Southgate, they must complete certain mission objectives, and then, locate and gain access to the exits. They will be attacked by zombies and other hostile forces in the meanwhile. They have individual scores and a team score.

Individual score: Were you active, did you send in orders, did you continue playing as a zombie if you died, did you defeat other players or NPCs, did you find items, unlock doors, or complete mission objectives, did you free yourself, did you escape.

Team score: Mission objectives completed, number of survivors at end of game.


Umbrella- Operatives which have infiltrated SynTech systems in order to counter-strike them after the events of Dark Falls. Their primary objective is to obtain certain items, defeat SynTech operatives, and escape with their prize.

Individual score: Were you active, did you send in orders, did you continue playing as a zombie if you died, did you defeat other players or NPCs, did you find items, unlock doors, or complete mission objectives, did you escape.

Team score: Mission objectives completed, number of survivors at end of game, number of deceased SynTech operatives.

SynTech- Mystery surrounds their activities here in Southgate. What is known is that they are behind the development of a terrifying new breed of bio-weaponry, and are rivals of Umbrella Corp.

Individual score: Were you active, did you send in orders, did you continue playing as a zombie if you died, did you defeat other players or NPCs, did you find items, unlock doors, or complete mission objectives, did you escape.

Team score: Mission objectives completed, number of survivors at end of game, number of deceased Umbrella operatives.

Zombie Horde- Their objective is to cause the fewest number of total survivors and escapees possible.

Zombies will be scored individually, adding to their score from when they were alive. There will be a bonus given depending on the success of the zombie horde in completing its objective.

Serial Killer: There is only one mission: Kill anyone and everyone.

There is no team score. Each SK is scored individually.


Unknown Factions: These are meant to be surprises.

If you are a survivor (Town) then the identity of everyone else is a mystery to you. You also don't ordinarily know where they are.

If you are a Serial Killer, you can identify other serial killers on sight, but otherwise don't know who or where they are.

If you are Umbrella, you know who all your partners are, and where they are, at all times. You can also ID SynTech operatives on sight. You just don't know who or where they are.

If you are SynTech, you know who all your partners are, and where they are, at all times. You can also ID Umbrella operatives on sight. You just don't know who or where they are.

If you are a zombie, you know where all the zombies are at all times, and who is within visual range of the zombie horde.

If you are a member of one of the hidden factions, you know who your partner(s) are, and where they are, at all times.

You know as much as the rest of us.

Askthepizzaguy

This looks fun but I have no idea if I can wrap my head around this. I'm going to read these threads while at work. Is something that someone with essentially no experience in a game like this can be a part of?

Yes, because almost every player in the previous game which had 62 players had no experience with a battle-royale style game, and I had absolutely zero experience hosting one.

More about the map and the game mechanics will be posted soon, and I will be available to answer questions.

TIME REQUIREMENTS: Every 3 days or so, you'll need to send me a private message indicating which action to take.

This PM can be as small as a couple sentences.

You may also wish to interact with players who are within communications range (1 tile, or an active com link with the player in question, host-approved only).

It should only take a few minutes to read what happened in the public writeup, open your results PM, and discuss things with available parties. Then, you have a couple days to decide what to do next.

This is less difficult for players than a traditional mafia game would be, because there's no public discussion. Therefore the player's time requirements are small. The host, on the other hand, is utterly insane for doing this a second time.

===================


General playing tips:

1) You need to do everything you plan on doing within 20-25 moves, because after that, the zombie horde will be too massive and they will be everywhere, and much more vicious as time progresses.

2) The longer the game progresses, the more survivors die and become zombies. Less allies, more enemies.

3) It is impossible to survive forever in Southgate. Eventually, a nuclear weapon will level the city, but the zombies will destroy everything alive long before then.

4) No matter how powerful you or your group of survivors becomes, the zombie horde will become that much more difficult to compensate.

5) You cannot explore every section of the map before time expires. Some things you have to leave for your teammates and you mustn't dawdle too much in going to your next objective.

6) Searching can yield better weapons, healing items, and very important, critical mission related items. Neglecting search is not advisable.

7) Searching can also reveal additional zombies, with a small percentage chance of that. Accordingly, if you are near death, searching can be a death sentence.

8) Accumulating health items can be a great idea, you can trade them to others, along with any items or weapons you don't need. This helps the players around you and makes it more likely someone survives the game. Other players might be more willing to give you weapons and items you need if it's not a one-way deal.

9) As soon as you complete your most critical objectives (freeing oneself, more on that later) (find an escape route) then you should attempt to leave southgate post-haste. Lingering in the city increases your risk of death, and escape + survival is much better score-wise than not escaping and not surviving.

Lingering in the city increases your risk of death, and escape + survival is much better score-wise than not escaping and not surviving.

As one of the few experts in surviving the game:

Read 9), forget about everything else.

Search for stuff until you or your group that you can (Hopefully) trust have enough documents that explain how to escape the city (Where to get a certain item that you need to escape through a section of the city). Once you know that, grab your group and do that, and forget about everything else. Don't help other parties unless they want to stick around you to make your group stronger, don't waste valuable turns in military bases searching for weapons, don't dilly dally, nothing. Look at the first game, 13 people out of 60 escaped.

1) Find escape route
2) Move to where needed items for escape route are
3) Get needed items
4) Move to escape route
5) Escape

Askthepizzaguy
09-27-2013, 21:52
This game will not allow you to escape through any escape route whatsoever until you accomplish the primary objective:

"Free yourself"

You cannot move outside of the boundaries of the map unless you have first done something which accomplishes this intentionally-vague (but will be revealed through the course of the narrative) primary objective.

Until you figure out how to do this, you are doomed to be trapped in Southgate until you die, and you will die. Mark my words.

I realize that I should have asked these earlier...but I have two questions about the game balance.:book2:

One is, if there well be scanners like in the first game. If so, that is kinda hacks because I recall joining a group that had one last game and if I had not turned near the end, all of us in that group would have escaped without incident.(No epic Wishazu ownage at the end if there wasn't though...)~:handball:

The second is, if anything like one player being unfortunately picked out like GH was for a rather unwelcome fate.:sweatdrop:

Edit: For point one what I mean is that it was easy to gain trust with it...you could tell if someone was turning or had evil intentions.

If you had met us at the endgame alone you'd be suspicious anyway. Three heavily armoured "police officers" just strolling around. Meeting us midgame with a detective would be a death penalty (we had faked cover roles that the detective would eventually see through and we knew this). It works more as a conflict sparker than anything else. Sometimes it helps, sometimes it triggers an unwanted battle. We could identify Leon and Umbrella people on spot, Umbrella was objective, while Leon was a threat.
I don't think anyone could always detect turning though, only if the person refused to turn at first. I do know that the surviving townie, that we had space to carry on the helicopter turned and ran away. Or was informed about being able to turn, ran away and turned.

The second is probably a secret, but something monstrous is returning. The plagas faction did well in the last game iirc, I think they came third, mostly after getting mauled by us. The queen in human form was quite weak iirc.

We killed the queen in one round I think... And two plagas and then 3 tyrant spawn later on, even if we didn't get the killing blow on all. Now Leon did have massive damage output and could probably kill 1-2 of us in 2 rounds, if slighly lucky. And he was pretty much the only scary thing left. The odds for anyone against us to survive more than one round was minimal. We had total damage output of 26 and 10, 10, 8 in combat. Him in a tank was scary, but that alone wouldn't been enough, unless he got very lucky. When we killed the queen, we had 22 damage I think, we didn't have the minigun yet.

Let me put it this way, in the biggest people battle (I think there was a larger zombie horde at some point); 16 went in (to be fair 6 npc zombies), 4 went out. 3 of them were systech mercs.

I do have some of the old stat mails left. I was hardest to kill with 10 combat, 7 luck (I'm not sure if I had a vest, then it should be 9) and 7 vit. Wis (aka Leon) had a good sword and stats to boost it, so he did 2 attacks 5 damage and had 66% shot of a third attack. He had 7 in combat.
So his average damage would be 10+5*0.66=13.3. My damage reduction would be 13.3*0.35 (chance to hit)*0.51 (luck)=2.37, so about 3 rounds to kill me.

Didn't FH maul the townie squad quite badly when transforming? And make Wis paranoid enough that he killed a townie?

Well, when me and the doctor met your group, and you were also carrying a number of unaffiliated townies around with you, we (Me, the doctor and other two I can't remember who they were) knew that you weren't typical policemen, and we did briefly discuss attacking you (Mainly out of fear of a likely prospective betrayal) but we decided against it since you were going to give me the Metal Detector (Which I wasn't sure if it only worked for one person or for everyone) that I needed, and because we were badly armed and you were armed to the teeth, and once the 2/3 mini-tyrants came before the bridge crossing to the Military Base, most of my trusted group died, so I was forced to stick around to you and hope you'd give me the Metal Detector so I could make my escape close-by. Luckily, it all worked out fine, but with people dieing left and right, I wasn't too sure I was gonna make it.

Besides, I think the biggest battle in the game was with the big group vs El Gigante on the bridge. ATPG?

It saddens me to see how much the other players didn't see how exploitable the "Speed" stat was...all it ever is is "Combat skill...all about the combat skill".:no:

There is a very good reason why every players speed stat is now 10...I had a speed stat of 13 by last games end and unless someone had a sniper or something, I could just avoid them or if I had to fight them I had a ton of combat rounds to kill them in. A Combat of 10 with a speed of 1, would pretty much be a death sentence unless they were in a group. I could outrun the tank Wiz was in, but I made several mistakes which cost the Zombie horde badly...and Wiz crushed me badly for that.:shame:

I didn't know that the omega also was bumped to 13 in their primary stat? I knew the tyrants (queen spawn) was. Speed was good with a good melee weapon, decent combat and preferbly some strength on that, but speed was better at running away than anything else. Also remember that we started as a team and expected heavy combat.

I mean 13 combat vs 6 combat => 15% hit chance. Sure having 2 extra attacks/round is great, but you also need to hit with it. Compare 4 rounds with 15% hit chance vs 2 rounds with 85% hit chance. Or even better 10 combat 1 speed, vs 10 speed 1 combat. Even if the 10 speed guy get 10 attacks/round vs 1 attack, he'll lose.

Speed doesn't win out on a certain hit until combat 10 vs 8 with a 2 attacks/round melee weapon, even if potential burst damage is certainly higher.

Being able to pick your battles are great, but you still need to win when engaging. Luck was a pretty crazy stat though, that one I understand why it'll get locked. I think the tank gave 10 speed. I know that Wis had 7 in speed normally.

The weapon I had pretty much guaranteed my victory against someone with 10 combat but 1 speed...:book2:


Army Rifle

Damage: 2 vitality point per combat round.
Speed: 3 bullet per combat round.
Reload: Can fire 30 rounds before reloading (useless during the next 15 minutes)

Removes 1 luck points from the target during a combat round, indicating greater accuracy and critical hits.

Sad part was, I gave it away before I "turned" to that group to gain there trust after stealing from them, that backfired big time. I also only had +1 added to my speed when I went Omega...I had 12 before from speed herbs...and a luck one as well. I still think everyone was crazy to fight El Gigante when almost everyone who did died...not to mention every SK/Zombie/Las Plagas knew they were there, like some giant hunk of meat hanging near the bridge...:laugh4:

Yeah...you can tell I favor running away and only fighting when given no choice.:bounce:

Impressive, I think you were the only human to get 12 in a stat.

iirc ranged weapons didn't get a speed bonus, only melee weapons. And that makes sense. So that's a 6 damage/round weapon, both for you and the 1 speed player. Now, there was a 3/2 melee weapon that you could turn into 3/4+whatever strength bonus you had (+1 and you had the highest damage potential for one player actually). Still, do you remember your combat rating? Really, 40% and below hit rating is horrible. It stops being reliable (if you ever played Battle for Wesnoth you really know that).

I don't remember what happened to the El Gigante surviviors though, me and CB joined up at the bridge and bypassed him on our way to the objective.

It depends on the role and stat determination on what I favour. I do tend stand and fight, but the role rules most. It is possible that I've would done a high speed char if I was a townie, but as a merc, with combat objectives+searching mission in a high danger area, high speed at loss of combat would've been a stupid idea.
I was in 6 battles and never took damage.

Jolt, since I did reread your qt a bit, we did tell our stats exactly for scare effect (since we suspected that townies could be scared, thus stupid, but not suecidal), but I'm surprised you had Psycho(naut) at 8 and not a bluffed 10. Could someone scan stats or was it shown combat calculations or something that gave it? Wis pushed most for the battle, since he was the only one with an objective to take us out.

Rereading the game thread, there wasn't that many that attacked El Gigante, the biggest battle there was taking down a serial killer, that killed most (all?) opponents. That was a 5 man battle.

Hey, uh, so like I've been mentioning literally everywhere for the past 3 weeks, I've been sick as a dog for most of the past.... 3 weeks.

I was willing to play some mafia games to relax and pass the time, but designing the game is pretty labor intensive. Especially the map and role PMs.

So, the launch date is not going to be Halloween as I had planned.

Right now? Aiming for November 13th, a couple weeks after Halloween and still on the scary and evil day which has a 13 in it.

So it's NEARLY scary.

Ah well, we would have launched on Halloween if I hadn't been in agony for a week followed by 2 weeks straight of coughing up fluid so I can't sleep.

What's up! I'm a mafia player from 2+2.

I expect to be killed early in a particularly gruesome fashion :)

I promise if and when you die, they will be coughing up pieces of you from their lungs.

~~~~~~

Also, everyone please show a warm welcome to the new members, who are not new in any other way shape or form. Experienced peoples from the otherworld that is 2+2, they are.

Show some Org spirit and be nice. Nice meaning not in the sarcastic sense, either. :stare:

Remember, I can spam-o-matic you people back to the stone age in a blatant and flagrant abuse of power.

Once we get to 45 VIPs I'm going to reserve the final 5 slots for premium VIP seating.

Chair exists for Diana Abnoba, Diamondeye, Renata, Romanichine, and another empty seat for anyone else I consider to be my special guest, and can't get in the game otherwise.

If those chairs don't fill, they will be open when the game is about to begin for those who are late to the party.

Nobody has been on TWC for ages. The mafia section there is essentially dead, to be revived one day when I absolutely need to host a game right now but every slot everywhere is full.

You TWC mafia players are basically org mafia players now. You're refugees. :grin:

@pizza, no f-bombs, gottcha, may be hard at first thou.

We're really not like stuffy about humor or aggression, just a tiny bit more restrictive. Pretend everyone here sitting at a table together eating nachos and cheetos and drinking mountain dew, playing DnD together, and there's a kid at the table, no adults around. Generally try to avoid the really hard language, so that kids who play total war games won't see really nasty stuff. But I mean words like "oh crap" nobody cares about anymore. Calling people scumbags is fine. Just avoid the really harsh stuff.

I doubt many really young kids are perusing our site but it would be nice if they did it wasn't a completely trashy environment for them. Teens do enjoy the totalwar games.

TBH some teenagers use the terrible language too, but hey, some of our older patrons are in their 30s and 40s and 50s and don't really enjoy such words every post, so we try to cut down on that.

That's actually probably a better explanation. Teenagers probably have a much more foul mouth than I give em credit for. :clown:

Yes, to all players and interested parties, right now there is no list of rules, mechanics, stuff you need to know.

Partly because some of it is still in the final stages of design, and the other part is simply this:

I know if I sit here and write it all out, without editing it, it will be a gigantic block of text that no one will read.

In order for you guys to be able to absorb the information, I have to take my time and deliberately use brevity as much as possible, and organize all the information into sections that are visually represented in a very organized way, with sections that are clearly labeled and put in a logical order.

I will give everyone plenty of time to read and absorb the rules and mechanics explanation before the game starts.

I will also get my co-hosts or someone to edit this stuff down so it's not a massive ATPG textwall.

Trust me, I know the difficulties of absorbing a massive information load. I'm going to make every effort to organize it well, keep it readable, on point, and as brief as possible.

So for now, you gotta wait. Rules and mechanics will be posted within the next couple weeks.

To add on to what ATPG said, when we say "aggressive" or "mean" things to each other (kinda like I've been sorta doing), we are not serious about it at all. johnhughthom is the master of this.

In case I'm asleep on a pile of discarded doritos bags and empty dr pepper bottles, and like a tow truck guy comes, just tap lightly on the windows until I wake up (I do not appreciate loud noises) and just politely remind me to move it.

Sure. Did you read the OP carefully, are you aware that this is not a mafia game, are you aware that participation is essentially mandatory, you can't miss orders every week and expect to do well at all, did you know the game may last for 6 months, did you know you're still expected to participate even after you die, can you commit and never drop out, any long vacations I need to be aware of, etc etc.

Standard screening. If you don't think you can do it please by all means sign up as a reserve.

If you think you can, little edse that could, then let me know.

Are you prepared for the kind of gruesome, disturbingly violent death that's in your future if you sign up?

I just want to make sure the warning label is bright red and in bold print.

Now, now you don't think that's the plan? The less people that understands the game, the more you can stand above the rest when you (ab)use it. If you haven't forced the host to introduce a new law, you haven't pushed the game boundries enough.

By the way, in case the survivors don't pull it out like they did last time (challenge level has been upped by one standard deviation) and everyone dies, like literally everyone gets owned by the zombie horde-

People should know that it doesn't really affect things. You're scored based on how well you did, and you're ranked from #1 to #50 or however many people I end up cramming into this game, just like last time.

I mean obviously the Zombeh horde will be the winning team at that point, and therefore most of you will be on the winning team. You'll just be ranked by score.

So make sure you go for max score just in case zombies fall, everyone dies. Because I am the kind of game host that wouldn't even blink to make the zombie horde so vicious that there's a chance you all get ate.

May want to find like a grenade launcher or a minigun ASAP.

If you guys start doing really well and thinking you're safe, and not enough people have died to my satisfaction, I'm going to just dump more zombies on you.

If you play Resident Evil 4, for example, the game gets more difficult if you're at full health and high ammo and you haven't died yet.

So let's say the survivors have slain 40 zombies with minimal losses, formed an El Gigante hunting party and somehow slain he who exists primarily to prevent you from doing such a thing in the first place, and have made excellent progress getting yourselves "saved" and finding a way out.

At that point, you can consider the game on Professional mode. I'm not going to let people just walk out the front door at that point. Might want to run in the opposite direction of the exit, in fact. :laugh4:
