    A few weeks back when UM was in development, I came up with a fantastic idea, though I don't really think I want to play anyways:
    The Social Entropists: A Classy Establishment for Discerning Gentlemen and Ladies

    Scooter said that a group of masturbators would be entirely inappropriate for this game. Still, I think it might give a few people ideas, and further it was fun to make.
    The Social Entropists are a gentlemen's club for the elite of the elite. While initially established as a sort of literary group dedicated to the works of Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins, it has grown into it's own forum, where open discussion takes place and ideas are shared. There fans of the artists typically meet to have have significant discussions on issues such as Tyranny and philosophy. Their conversations are very edifying, and most are insightful into the very core of the human experience.

    Typical Social Entropist Poster.

    * Violence (murder, robbery, assualt)
    It should be noted that Penny-arcade is a pretty violent web comic; however, SE++ is able to stay above that.
    piggy.jpg
    In this comic Krahulik and Holkins use violence as a metaphor for class warfare in a technocratic age, with the piggy representing the death of the traditional farmer.

    Despite the influences, there have been only a few cases where the organization has resorted to the use of force.

    Tim Buckley being shot.

    They are all a very tight community that encourages the best in people

    Even the artists weigh in on their excellent upstanding behavior.
    nursinghome.jpg
    Nothing to worry about, we've still got plenty of asses left to post

    * Smuggling (drugs, guns, immigrants)
    drugs2.jpg
    Science shows a strong correlation between Video Games and Drugs

    Posting under the influence is against the rules in SE++.
    drugs.jpg
    limed for truth

    * Electronic (hacking, identity theft)
    The Social Entropists, true to their programming name sake, are excellent with computers. Even once hacking google itself.
    h4x.jpg
    Kids today

    More importantly they are excellent masters or security. For instance they blend knowledge of philosophy and the culinary arts brilliantly into their password checks.
    security.jpg
    Can something untasteable posess some flavor that is metatastual? Riddle me that Batman

    More importantly Our SQL database has some Zen shit up ins. Never had any problems.
    mysql.jpg
    Typical posting day.

    Despite the obvious temptation, the use of their powers of the Internet for piracy is forbidden.
    confusion.jpg
    I have wanted to post this picture soo many times...

    * Sexual (prostitution, illegal pornography)
    etcha.jpg
    Recently with such mod as Hot Coffee, and 58,008, the boundaries between pornography and video games are becoming blurred. Fortunately, the social entropists have safe gaurds to protect young peoples.
    register.jpg
    I agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to becoming immediately and permanently banned (and my service provider being informed)

    When a young person tries to make an account, they instead get an error message:
    sorry.jpg
    Impossible to bypass security features

    It wasn't always like this though, there was once a time of Happenstance and Ribaldry.

    In contrast the SE++ are much better

    Typical Day in SE++

    Sex is not the only things on their minds.

    Prime Minister me too plz

    dongdancevs9.gif
    Look at him dance.

    * Corporate (corporate espionage, tax evasion)
    20060210.jpg
    I get paid to post here

    As a tight nit community they'd never sell out to our corporate overlords.
    corp.jpg
    You need to buy Horsez for the PS2. Pimp your ride and riding dirty and all that for sure.

    No there actually are interesting discussions from time to time on fighting corporate power.
    walrmat.jpg
    Oh wait that's D&D

    * Corruption & Extortion (corruption of politicians, protection rackets)
    20060320.jpg

    Not everything in SE++ is about Ding Dongs and Asses. Look at this interesting discussion on taxes.
    texastaxes.jpg
    Oh wait D&D again. BTW: While we proved Texas was illegal, you still have to pay your damn taxes

    Let's look at some of the excellent SE++ posts on politics:
    poli1.jpg
    This is how democracy dies

    poli2.jpg
    Shocking!

    * Anarchy (disruption of government, destruction)
    annarchy.jpg
    Yes please

    Social Entropy is by definition a an unstoppable destruction of society and culture. Sometimes they even derail whole threads! They're like the Dalai lamas of fighting the man.

    Hey look a dancing dildo!
    dongdancevs9.gif
    Only if you Dance for me!
    ====
    And with that I rape my photobucket account.
    Stats would have been

    Electronic: 5
    Sexual:3
    Corruption & Extortion: 2
    Anarchy: 5
    With the last point it'd either be in Violence, Corporate, or smuggling (in that order).

    Alignment: Neutral, staying one step above the filth that can be found on much of the internet, but well below normal or expected behavior.

    And of course, The Pink Dildo would have been the banner. But no, I agree with Scooter, that it is not appropriate for the setting, and I don't think I want to play anyways. I did this just for fun, a little light-hearted jab at our own forum. I <3 SE++, and I hope no one is offended.

    Huddled Masses Union: 26 East Landing
    Type: Beneficial Gang

    Vice:
    Violence: 5
    Smuggling: 7
    Anarchy: 4

    The Huddled Masses grew out of the leadership of Allmad bin Fallah ibn Bakr, or Al. A charismatic young Iranian, he could not stand the intimidation and violence brought on the small Iranian community by gangs and hostile corporations. Possessing little in the way of nationalistic fervor, he spent years banding the various immigrant communities together and building a militant group of men to actively defend the people when the police wouldn't. Largely made up of East Europeans and Middle Easterners, the HMU also includes a number of Koreans, Mexicans, Caribbeans, and a small group of intellectuals who fled from a genocide in Ghana.

    I don't suppose anyone could make an icon for me? I have zero image making skills. I was thinking an anchor crossing an rifle, nothing too fancy.[/b]

    Middle Finger Tech.
    mft.gif

    Alignment: Criminal

    Based in Omega Industries, MFT. manufactures everything
    from Self-Cleaning Ovens to Military Vehicles. What most
    civilians don't know is that MFT. supplies roughly 76% of
    international arms dealers, with DIY firearms, explosives,
    and remote detonation kits. Preferring to proliferate by
    mass production, MFT rarely takes offensive action. In
    light of recent audits by the state and local activist groups
    MFT has put togather a small, yet highly effective, Policy
    Enforcment Commision, which deals with all "negotiations"
    outside of the legal realm.

    There is no filling up this game. If we get more players, I'll just keep doing more events per turn. Signups never end either, although at some point you may be past being able to win yourself, you can still play for your 'team' and RP.


    And argh, do not delete UM Wiki pages unless it's something you made yourself.

    I'm thinking I might start turn 1 tomorrow with posting of the first events and opening the IC thread, and then giving it a full 5 days. So if a group joins by Weds, they won't miss any turns.

    I am now starting Turn 1. In terms of game time, Turn 1 starts Jan 1st, 2007, each turn lasts a week. Turn will end around Weds, so any new signups just go ahead and include Turn 1 stuff in your post. And remember signups never close.

    And now your events, from The Arcadia Post

    The Arcadia Post top stories:

    - The Arcadia Post is proud to celebrate its one year anniversary! Today we look back at top stories of Arcadia's first year, and hear from Mayor Helms as he talks about the even brighter years to come.

    - Gang violence escalated in The Clover last week as three members of the Green Fours gang were killed in a drive by shooting from members of the Limericks gang...

    Street Rep (Violence):
    Good Mission: A lot of people live in The Clover. This violence has to be stopped, now. Find and bring the Limericks shooters to justice, and a take down a few Green Fours while you're at it.
    Reward: 80 Nice points
    Evil Mission: Evening the score with the Limericks would gain a lot of favor with the Green Fours, providing a valuable hideout spot. Kill four Limericks for every Greenie shot down.
    Reward: Territory - Southeast Clover Tower (Evil, +1 Violence)


    - Reports have been heard that Central American drugrunners have been regularly sneaking contraband into certain incoming flights, where they are then picked up by local agents. AIA Security has insisted that their security is airtight...

    Special Delivery (Smuggling):
    Good Mission: If you could find and intercept the local drugrunner agents, you could confiscate every delivery for weeks before they even notice and redirect their shipments. This would be a major blow to the drug trade.
    Reward: +1 Smuggling
    Evil Mission: If you could find and intercept the local drugrunner agents, you could be snorting lines off of hookers asses for weeks.
    Reward: +1 Smuggling


    - Scandelous gossip has surfaced regarding a local starlet and a 'home video' - from when she was underage...

    Getting The Part...Yea, The Whole Part (Sexual):
    Good Mission: This is a video taken of an 'audition' for a part in a movie that actress played in when she was twelve. Not only would aquiring this tape help protect the dignity of an Arcadian celebrity, but it would be vital evidence in a case against the director.
    Reward: 50 Nice Points
    Evil Mission: Pedos and movie geeks alike will pay out the nose for this tape. Plus she wasn't a bad looking twelve year old.
    Reward: 50 Vice Points


    - Government officials are still denying the commercial sale of land near Apple Forest National Park, citing environmental concerns...

    An Apple A Day (Corporate)
    Good Mission: This land needs to be preserved. If you can get your hands on unreleased corporate reports on pollution estimates, the politicians could never sell this land to dirty corporations.
    Reward: 50 Nice Points
    Evil Mission: You know, a few accidental chemical spills, some sick wildlife, and politicians will hardly be able to argue that protecting these acres will be worthwhile.
    Reward: 50 Vice Points


    - Construction continues on the new Explosives Disarment and Destruction facility, which will allow for safe disarment of virtually any explosive device. Workers denied reports that they have recieved warnings of threats against them...

    Open With A Bang (Anarchy)
    Good Mission: If you can insure that construction on this facility is completed safely, you can be sure to be able to call in a favor with them when you just can't get rid of a bomb.
    Reward: Territory - Explosives Disarment and Destruction Facility, South Apex Park (Good, +1 Anarchy)
    Evil Mission: BLOW IT UP
    Reward: 80 Vice Points

    Ties between highest can be rerolled. If I don't have rerolls from all the tied by time the turn comes I just pick one randomly using Castle.

    Although, if the groups involved come to an agreement one could surrender it to another, and I might consider letting points be split between them (no splitting territory or stats though).

    Well, (if we win) we could agree to split the credit -- a joint operation or whatnot. Otherwise, it's a roll-off, and we just pretend that the tie never happened.

    Of course (as was mentioned earlier) the Wrestlers (or someone else) might still beat us both, so we should wait and see.
