The Tron Games
Foreword, author's note:
If any of you out there haven't seen the movie Tron, too bad for you. It's an awesomely-geeky movie made in the 80s about a guy that gets pulled into a computer via a "digitizer", and how he has to fight programs and kill the evil "Master Control Program" (or MCP) to get out. Anyways, this game is going to be based on that movie. Here's a link to a short YouTube video of one of the more famous scenes of Tron: the lightcycle race.
You are all programs fighting against the evil programs. You have to delete the viruses (that would be the bad guys) before they delete you. Because the viruses have the MCP on their side, they have the ability to delete one program per round. There are several special programs among you: Tron, who is the "assassin" equivalent in previous GTWs; a virus scanner, who is the "IA"; and a new role for the viruses and the programs, the corrupter. Tron can terminate a program every third "cycle". The virus scanner can scan one program per cycle (via PM to me). The corrupter can change the energy (aka votes) away from a program and towards another program of ONE vote every second cycle. There is one corrupter per team.
To delete a program, a majority of the programs must focus their energy (aka vote) upon deleting another program. Once this is done, the program is erased (aka, killed).
Now for some technicals:
First, I'm not going to limit what you can and cannot say. Obviously, anybody can claim to be the virus scanner and PM anything to anybody. Part of these games is that you deceive others. Take everything you hear, unless I say it, with a grain of salt.
Second, these rounds will be 48 hours (2 days) long. Since I don't have computer access every day at 6:00 PM PT (9:00 PM ET), votes must have a time stamp of before 6:00, or else it will not be counted. If you edit your post after 6:00 and do not accurately state what that edit is, your vote will not be counted, as you could have tampered with it. All edits and posts should have a stamp of before 6:00 PM on the round-ending day, or else the vote will not be counted.
Third, all roles are random (by way of rolling dice).
Fourth, all dialogues will be in second person ("you"), bolded, and italicized. They are directed to the programs, but should be read by all for the best understanding of the game.
Fifth, if you aren't around and don't vote for two days, you will incite wrath from above. Just play the game.
Sixth, have a good game!
**You awaken to find yourself in a very dark room, lit only by dim neon lights on the walls. Your headache tells you that you were knocked unconscious. You look around the room and find that there are several other programs, all of them rubbing their heads the same way that you find yourself rubbing yours. You are about to go over and communicate with the other programs when a loud voice booms from somewhere hidden:
Programs! You have been brought to this quarantined area because there were viruses found around you. Some of you are viruses, some of you are not. Your task is to find those viruses and delete them, before they delete you. You will receive no help from the outside; good luck.
You are shocked to hear that you have been quarantined - and that there are viruses around you! The voice booms again:
This is the list of programs in this quarantine:
You resolve to find these viruses and delete them.**
