    I have other cosplays I will be wearing. So I'll just be wearing the arm band.

    - Biting's excellent! It's like kissing. Only there's a winner.

    ooOOOo What cosplays? Not that I'll be looking for you to assassinate or anything....

    Haha, check the Cosplay thread. I've got post in there with pics.

    I've got 3. A Spartan flight suit, Mass Effect Normandy crew uniform, and Mass Effect Alliance Uniform.

  • KellyShepard087KellyShepard087 Registered User regular
    Yeah, they are kinda cool. Did you decide on a faction? I picked Cowboy Verse.

    Nice. It would be hilarious if we ended up targeting each other.

    one of my primary motivations in choosing the sparkly ponies was so i could have an excuse to dress sparkly and/or pony-themed. at least for one day, not sure which (maybe friday, just in case i get killed off on day one!).

    Oh good thinking! I was thinking about if I should cosplay as my secretly chosen faction for all three days but what happens if I get eliminated so quickly. Then I'll just be a lonely cowgirl...or beating a dead pony...

    Also, I hope that your sparkly cosplay leaves a trail of glitter so I can find you and take a picture with! Would love to see what you come up with, even if you end up just gluing tons of glitter on yourself.

    I would definitely like to get a picture of anyone dressing up for their faction. We'd also like to get a group picture of everyone who's playing, probably Sunday afternoon. I'll post more specifics as we get closer.

    now that it's getting closer to last minute crunch time, dumping glitter all over myself is becoming a very real possibility.

    Another Kingsport Raider reporting in. Anything that's not dead will be put down. And what is dead already will be put down again.

    My wife and I just challenged each other to an assassins duel. Whoever gets the most kills or gets the mission to take the other out wins. Purchasing kits now.

  • rascalrascal Registered User regular
    We've got 3 different factions in our PAX-going group, so we agreed to a mutual non-assassination treaty. Internecine treachery no doubt will still abound....I never trust a Sparkling Brony...

  • LinkSmashLinkSmash Registered User regular
    Oh man. Everytime I look at this thread, more and more folks are participating making it all the more scarier walking around the PAX showfloor. >.<!!!

    Oh wow guys, I'm loving the level of excitement being shown here! Thanks for playing!

    Kits purchased...Add two more browncoats to the list!

  • tvethiopiatvethiopia Registered User regular
    so it looks like some of my cosplay plans are falling through, which is resulting in my sparkly pony uniform becoming increasingly elaborate. there may be a mane involved, is all i'm saying.

    Woot, added! Thanks for playing, looks like the Cowboys will be a force to be reckoned with!

    I once dressed as an angry killer robot clown; a robot ninja would be pretty simple to make but dear god if that costume didn't get unbelievably hot. And unwieldy. Not made for stealth OR crowd navigation, I'm afraid.

    But perhaps some cybernetic implant prosthetics...

    We've had between 120 and 130 players at Prime. The last time we ran at East we had around 70 players. I think we should easily be able to field that many players for this game but the more the better.

    We're always looking for ways to get the word out and this is a great time to bring up one of the new things we've stumbled on thanks to some enthusiastic clan members from PMS is getting groups involved in the game (Thanks again to LinkSmash, Victory and Ruby!). This year at East you're hopefully going to see a number of badges like the ones below worn by PMS and H2O members.

    AssassinsBallBlank_PMS_H20.png

    For the game itself these branded badges aren't any different from non-branded ones. However we are going to have some special achievements tied to these badges, some of which will be triggered should you assassinate a group member or conversely are assassinated by one, as well as some that are triggered only by group members.

    In addition these badges will exist in the regular leaderboards but will also have their own leaderboards. If you've got a group going and think they would be interested in something like this let me know! We're also going to be doing this for Enforcer badges since you guys rock so if you're playing and enforcing let me know! dyaballikl this may make you even more of a target now, sorry!

    I'm going to put some time into that and the content for Cowboy 'Verse this week. In the meantime I'm certainly open to suggestions for it!

    My two buddies and I just pledged KingSport.

    Now - to come up with a catch-phrase for assassinations. "You have been terminated..." "Your soul is mine..." ... it's a work in progress.

    How about "The stars are right... for Death!"? :) Thanks for playing!
