Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[Phalla] WWI - Pointy Hat Guys Win!

edited February 2008 in Critical Failures
Welcome to my World War I - A West Side Story Musical by Steven Sondheim and produced by Mel Brooks, critically acclaimed actor, producer and director Phalla.

"Bent double, like old beggars under sacks,
Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge,
Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs
And towards our distant rest began to trudge.
Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots
But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind;
Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots
Of disappointed shells that dropped behind.

GAS! Gas! Quick, boys!-- An ecstasy of fumbling,
Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time;
But someone still was yelling out and stumbling
And floundering like a man in fire or lime.--
Dim, through the misty panes and thick green light
As under a green sea, I saw him drowning.

In all my dreams, before my helpless sight,
He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning.

If in some smothering dreams you too could pace
Behind the wagon that we flung him in,
And watch the white eyes writhing in his face,
His hanging face, like a devil's sick of sin;
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud
Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues,--
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardent for some desperate glory,
The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est
Pro patria mori."
-Wilfred Owen

    A bold move! Perhaps one day you will be honored with a statue of a bucking horse or wall of names.

    (As DA showed, anyone wishing to play should sign up using a bold and lime message)

    Will the unit mechanic be similar to the 40k mini?

    Edit - meant unit, and will we have choices. Obviously i'll find out when it's posted I am just being curious.

    !How sweet and fitting it is to die for your native land:
    Death pursues the man who flees,
    spares not the hamstrings or cowardly backs
    Of battle-shy youths



    I reluctantly sign up, I tend to spend too much time on phallas when I'm playing.

    If you're taking reserves, could you please sign me up for that, instead?

    I figure it will be this way:

    We have a couple machinegunners on each side. They kill anyone who gets out of a trench.
    We'll also have some chemical warfare experts. They launch mustard gas, which kills everyone in an area.
    Finally, we'll have trenchfoot. This will kill a certain percentage (20%) of players in a trench every night.

    The game ends when the Triple Alliance is defeated, and Germany specifically is forced to pay reparations for every nation invaded. This directly leads to [Phalla] WWII.
    Don't forget that every night a few players commit suicide or will be executed as deserters.

    I see this post, but I don't see any signing up. Must I taunt you with further awesome World War 1 poetry?

    Jdark, no trenchfoot mechanics, and you aren't able to be Gabriel Gates in this one. Sorry.

    This, but replace writing with cartographing. Beyond that, it's a mystery to me.

    You can sign up if you want CJ, you don't know anything that would give you an unfair advantage.

    Durax: Game will begin on monday, so you've got a good amount of time before sign-ups close.

    Coral Springs... I was just up in Sunrise at the new Ikea. You are too close to me. Stop invading my personal space.

    Florida's taking the Phalla community by storm.

    Thanks, but I think I'll have more fun watching. I'm up for hire as a freelance strategist, though.
