The year is 2258. The Tellus Union Kosmosfahrer Gagarin, tasked with exploring potential new worlds for colonization has arrived in the Ver-Ziji system. Aboard the Ship are beings from many races, humanoid and non-humanoid, all working together in harmony, despite earlier conflicts and differences. Well, mostly in harmony. :devil:

Posted Image
As the planet Ver-Ziji 4 seemed very promising on long-range scans it was decided to send down a scout team to further investigate.

Posted Image
On the planet's surface the scout team had several interesting discoveries such as magnificent crystal formations, weird plants.

Posted Image
And some strange, red, wormlike aliens.

Posted Image
That showed signs of being sentient. So it was decided to take some specimens aboard the Gagarin for further study.

Posted Image
Some time later, several light-hours away from Ver-Ziji 4, Dr. Spencer Feynman was working late, studying the aliens from Ver-Ziji 4.

Posted Image
The aliens were most peculiar, seemingly completely neutral genetically speaking, and should thus be capable of reacting with all kinds of lifeforms.

Posted Image
As Spencer pondered this he felt a strong urge to grab the alien and look very close at it.

Posted Image
To the degree of having the alien forcing itself onto him and bonding with him.

Posted Image
Feeling fine. In fact, feeling stronger, more aggressive, like he could take on the Universe the newly Infected Spencer left the lab to search for and free his captured brethren..




So, signup for Infection is hereby open. It will not be first-come, first-serve, the signup thread will be open for 72 hours, until 2nd of November, 23:59 UTC. (or just 72 hours from the time of this post if you prefer :tongue:) And there are a total of 21 player slots in the game.

Infection will use the regular rules for mafia games, including Dragonator's proposed "no voting for the first 24 hours" rule.

Each Day the players can convict one player that will be thrown out an airlock. Voting is done by Vote: Character name / Player name, unvoting by Unvote: Character name / Player name. Votes must be in bold to be counted.

Each game "Day" will last a maximum of 96 hours. There are no "sudden death" rules, but having a Day end without a conviction is Bad, Very Bad. "Night" will last a maximum of 48 hours.

All the usual rules apply too, of course:
  • No editing of posts. Do this more than 3 times and you will be killed. No exceptions.
  • No unvoting after a conviction has been reached. Do it once, warning. Do it twice, and you'll be killed.
  • OOC posting should be kept in the discussion thread
  • References to past games are however both allowed and in fact encouraged (if done properly.)
  • No metagaming please :classic:

If you have any questions, feel free to send me a PM. :classic:

Look, just don't be reckless, act like me. It seems I'm just luckynaturally good pretty good at winning Mafia games. Maybe it's my characters... First, I'm a devilishly handsome hitman, then I'm a phsyco maid... What next? A brilliant, yet wimpy, scientist with the ability to slap people like an angry monkey? :laugh:

Forgive me for asking, but as I wasn't in Noir I am curious, what did you do to inherit this 'lifelong grudge'?
