    This is going to be great, though anybody debating balance has to realize this is not going to be a serious game.

    I'll be surprised if I make it past the first hour.

    Haha, Shamus.

    How many zap shots do you think the two of us can take for the team on day 1? Here's to seeing the looks on everyone's face when the lights dim after day 1 from so much zapping and we're the only two casualties.

    Since this looks to be a short game, I can do this.

    I !sign up

    EDIT: Now that I think about it, who wants to bet this game ends in like 24 hours and how many people want to guess that the first 2 pages are like 50% public zap requests?

    I think it would've been more humorous to have the zapping done by pm the first day and occurs after narration. Lights dim, Shamus and Ardor used to be with us, instead, everyone is standing around two piles of ash with their zappers out.

    I was going to pass, but then I realized this game will probably be really short.

    Question: will the bad guys have the !Zap ability as well?

    EDIT: Forgot to !sign up.

    The zapping sounds like it will be the stuff of Phalla legend. Either everyone's gonna shoot the person to their left or everyone's going to fire on one guy and see what happens. The blasters are going to get a workout.

    And I want in on it.

    You know, that brings up an interesting idea. We should put forth 2 votes on the first day. A red vote for who should be executed and a green vote with who gets to be on the receiving end of everyone's blasters.

    I am planning on zapping whoever turns out be the second Assamite in the VtM game. I don't know who you are, but you are DEAD.

    Or maybe I'll just zap Ardor. He's so upset he hasn't died in the other game yet...

    Damn, I can't wait to zap someone. Really, there are SO many good candidates! Even if I get zapped in the first round, I still get to zap someone right? Zapping seems fun!!!!

    That would be a scary game. Zaps happen instantly and the Zappee can't respond by Zapping anybody himself...

    Though doing something similiar but allowing them to only Zap back the person who targeted them could lead to a pretty interesting power balance...

    If you are going down you should be able to get one last strike at someone... that would be interesting. One person starts out with a zap and the person he zaps can zap someone else until theres one person left. I wonder who would win... it would be like a reverse popularity contest ;p

    With everyone as a vigilante, the vote will have little-no effect at first anyway. No need to convince anyone that someone needs zapping!

    It'll be funny if like 60% of people zap someone in the first round, and the blaster have a 50% chance of backfiring or something.

    I expect the failure rate of zaps to be extremely high. The obvious alternatives are backfiring, hitting another target (whether random or by some convoluted logic), or just missing/not working entirely. Given what I've heard about Paranoia, I'm hoping to see some wacky side effects too.

    (((See the public !zap means that you will be very suspect and if you can't explain it well you will probably die the next day, then again thats paranoia in a nutshell. )))


    I definitely do not trust my computer issued zap gun, it was probably sabotaged to kill whatever the last clone that used it ... maybe it DID kill the last clone that used it. It may have even killed MY last clone!

    Hmm... Paranoia.

    You and I have a long and sordid history.

    Rather than kneejerk !join, will debate if I should join based on the comments by others in prior "death" thread for Phalla. (a bloo bloo bloo)

    Would probably be helpful to start with some high-clearance reflec, presuming I start at said clearance of said reflec.

    More likely, almost everyone will use their !zap gun the first day, and no meaningful data will result.

    I hope I live longer than four hours this time. Considering the zappers though, I don't know... I still think the idea of standing in a circle and firing at the person on their left is fun - I wonder if that'll happen? Do zaps get resolved immediately or only at the end of the night? It'll be madness either way. Go go spreadsheet power!

    Kill Priority at end of night will be All ZAP Simultaneously then Mutant and Commie Actions Simultaneously. Oh, and then the Village Vote.

    Yes, you read that right, and no I am not joking.

    Alright, I can agree with that logic. Especially b/c DA endorses it. He seems to be able to manage his between-game biases better than others.

    I !sign up and beg to be placed on the same troubleshooter team as Gnasty, Saburbia, Drez, Grundlterror and FunkyWaltDogg.

    QUESTION(S) 4 EBM

    By simultaneously, do you mean that the commies/mutants might encounter each other if targeting the same victim?

    But of course, justification is that if they couldn't issue a Zap command, it'd be really easy to pick them out.

    I think he's referring to the whole (players 1&2 pair up, shoot each other, players 3&4, same thing etc) to find out who doesn't have an actual gun. Anyone can issue the command, but if the gun doesn't exist, well, I'm not sure what you planned to say about it.
