THE RULES (new rules in red):

This game is based on the orignal Ultimate Cloak & Dagger from Tormsskull. Thank you Tormsskull for giving me the permission to ressurect it.

The rules will be slight different, especially the vote rules as will be explained beyond.

1.) The goal

The goal is to kill off all people on your kill-list and save all people on your heal-list
The game ends if one or more people managed to clear their kill-list.
If there is more then one who cleared their list, winner is the one who managed to keep the most people on his heal-list alive.
If these lists are equal, too, we have a draw and two or more winners.

2.) The lists

The kill-list and the heal-list will be send out via PM by me to all participating players.

3.) How to kill

Everyone get three votes:

- a major vote (worth 3 points)
- a average vote (worth 2 points)
- a minor vote (worth 1 point)


You send a PM to me with your votes (for example: 3 points for player x, 2 points for player y, 1 point for player z)
You may change every vote once in a round by PMing me your new vote.
At the end of the round I will count up all votes and will show in the thread who voted for whom.
(for example: Player w: 3 points for player x, 2 points for player y, 1 point for player z)

The people who got the most points are killed!
The people who got the least points are killed!
The people who didn't send me a vote without an excuse are killed!

If you are going on holidays or do something else where you know you can't get into the internet feel free to PM me an advice for whom you will vote in the meantime, when and if you want to change your vote later and so on.
I will try to obey your advices, if there are too many it could be that there will be mistakes so this is just for emergency cases!

4) other issues

One round should last 3 days, I will update the thread every 24hours with the standings (who would get killed till now) and a list who have'nt voted.
I will not remind the ones who haven't voted.

So, sign up is open, if you have questions or ideas feel free to post in this thread.
I will close sign up if there are enough players (between 15 and 25).

Players (17):

Andre Fairchilde
D'anna Biers
Fleeing Coward
Jontom Xire

WARNING: Killing the narrator will end the game immidiatly!

Andre Fairchilde
2007-08-10, 12:16 PM
That means on this sign up thread the narrator must have neither too many or too few votes.

~ Sorry ZP, made my vote, now it's too late to change...

Zar Peter
2007-08-10, 12:18 PM
You may change every vote once! It's in the rules! Come on, what do you want to change your vote? You already won a game, at last!

2007-08-10, 12:24 PM
Y'know, i agree with andre on this.
3 points to Zar peter
2 points to Joosbawx
1 point to uhh.. Janusnori.

2007-08-10, 12:34 PM

Andre Fairchilde
2007-08-10, 12:37 PM
Ok, I'll change my vote:

3 Votes for Pwenet
2 Votes for Radikalskippy
1 Vote for D'anna Biers

Zar Peter
2007-08-10, 01:22 PM
Thank you, Andre! Now it's Khaldan I must bribe.

ANd I think I take D'anna's post as sign up.

2007-08-10, 02:27 PM

Fleeing Coward

I'm back in for it

2007-08-11, 01:17 AM
Sure, I'm in ... Let's see if someone can win in one round this time.

2007-08-11, 04:38 AM
What the heck.

Sing me up, Pete.

I'm probably going to be useless at this, but what the hey - sign me up.

2007-08-14, 07:26 AM
Sorry, but I withdraw from this game. It looks fun and good luck to all.

Raiser Blade
2007-08-15, 01:49 AM

2007-08-20, 02:35 PM

But then everyone will know about our devious plans....

Anyone looking to work out a deal of some sort should PM me.
I may help you.
I may kill you.
You never know.

2007-08-20, 02:53 PM
Well then dear ol' Shadow; I'll tell you my most devious strategy:
Stay alive, keep Heal List alive, kill off Killees, deal with one person only.

And now my most secret and ultra-awesome super-special strategy try not to beg to join in.:smallwink:

Zar Peter
2007-08-20, 05:08 PM

Janusnori, Fleeing Coward,(Or anyone who would like to change their votes) I will trade you a saving vote for me now for a vote for anyone you want in the next round. Want someone particularly dead next round? Need someone on your heal list protected? PM me and we can make a deal.

2007-08-20, 11:29 PM
Wow....you guys SERIOUSLY hate me.

Zar Peter
2007-08-21, 02:01 PM
The last hour till the end of round one!

Zar Peter
2007-08-21, 03:19 PM
*** End of the First Round ***

Here are your votes:

{table] player | Major Vote | Average Vote | Minor Vote
Akaziel | D'anna Biers | janusnori | Castaras
Andre Fairchilde | D'anna Biers | Pwenet | janusnori
Artemis97 | Raiser_B1ade | Helgraf | Tormsskull
Castaras | CurlyKitGirl | D'anna Biers | Shadow
CurlyKitGirl | Fleeing Coward | Pwenet | D'anna Biers
D'anna Biers | Andre Fairchilde | Andre Fairchilde | janusnori
Fleeing Coward | Andre Fairchilde | Artemis97 | Orzel
Helgraf | Akaziel | Shadow | Khaldan
janusnori | | |
Jontom Xire | Andre Fairchilde | Khaldan | Helgraf
Khaldan | D'anna Biers | Helgraf | Andre Fairchilde
Orzel | Akaziel | Castaras | Khaldan
Pwenet | D'anna Biers | Shadow | Fleeing Coward
radikalskippy | Khaldan | D'anna Biers | Shadow
Raiser_B1ade | radikalskippy | Akaziel | Artemis97
Shadow | Jontom Xire | Orzel | Artemis97
Tormsskull | Andre Fairchilde | Helgraf | Fleeing Coward [/table]

As you can see janusnori sadly didn't manage to come to his computer.

At last it was a tough match between D'anna Biers and Andre Fairchilde but

D'anna Biers reached the first place, 17 points are leading to a high class lynching with a golden guillotine.

Andre Fairchilde with 15 points was very close behind.

8 points and third place for Akaziel

The fourth place with 7 points reached Helgraf and Khaldan

Than we have the sixed place, actually 6 points worth, for Shadow

The seventh place with 5 points claimed Fleeing Coward

The eight place, 4 points, is in a draw between Pwenet and janusnori (but janusnori didn't vote and will get lynched anyway).

The tenth place is very popular, 3 points are going to Artemis97, Castaras, CurlyKitGirl, Jontom Xire, Orzel, radikalskippy and Raiser_B1ade

And at the end of the table, one lonly point was the leftover for poor Tormsskull, I'm very sorry to see you die!

So but now to the living, second round begins, update in app. 24 hours, you may vote NOW!

Zar Peter
2007-08-22, 11:26 AM
Only two votes till now!

This will be a ridicoulous first update!

2007-08-22, 11:35 AM
To avoid a quadruple post by ZP I will do something.

A small wizened old woman walks into the Assassins Guild (survive the fianl exam and you pass. Only one will win!) and shows a slip to the Headmaster. In a cracking voice she says "Sorry, I'm late sir but I was delayed by Mamma at the disguise shop." Turning to the cot hook sje takes off her hat, face and cloak and sits down for an interview.

Zar Peter
2007-08-22, 02:47 PM

6 points for Fleeing Coward are not bad, too!

CurlyKitGirl got 3 points,

Andre Fairchilde has 2 points

Zar Peter
2007-08-23, 04:35 PM

(On the other hand, I'm dead anyway)

2007-08-24, 05:11 PM
Can I get a sad theme song again for setting a new death record?

Raiser Blade
2007-08-24, 05:13 PM
wait so is this like a record for mostest killings in one update

2007-08-24, 05:17 PM
Looks like you recieved my votes, yet somehow I didn't get the receipt back from the message...odd. oh well.

2007-08-24, 05:19 PM
And i was able to legitamately break 2 rules in less than a day. WEWT! I want a MEDAL!

Zar Peter
2007-08-24, 05:32 PM
For medals pleas PM Lord Herman!

You can have a spoiler sentence:

I broke 2 rules in one day in Cloak and Dagger IV, I killed the narrator and I got away with it. But all I have now is this ugly spoiler sentence!

Jontom Xire
2007-08-25, 01:29 AM
Ok, can someone explain to me how to play this game. Not the rules, but how to play it.

I lost one off my heal list yesterday, and FOUR today!!! I've got one left. Meanwhile not a single person on my kill list has died :(

Yeah I'm hampered by limited internet access and limited time and being in several other games, but even so!

If anyone wants to trade, I'll be happy to give votes the way you want just in exchange for getting one person on my kill list dead.

2007-08-25, 11:13 AM
No offense JX, but it sounds to me like you're a lost cause....

Zar Peter
2007-08-25, 11:16 AM
If no one finds any mistake in the votes I will end the game in two hours. As I said one of you cleared the Kill list!

And JX: It's mostly based on the mysterious thing called LUCK. Some people try to play it with a kind of strategy, but it's mostly luck!

2007-08-25, 11:22 AM
Well then I guess having just sent you my list for this round was a waste!
Congrats to whoever won.

Zar Peter
2007-08-25, 12:14 PM

Congratulations to Andre Fairchilde, Shadow, CurlyKitGirl, Fleeing Coward, Akaziel, Jontom Xire and Castaras.

You all survived Meatloaf Day!

And the winner of Cloak and Dagger IV, The sudden rule change is:


And your price:

I not only survived meatloaf day in Cloak and Dagger IV, the sudden rule change, I also won the whole game in TWO ROUNDS! Although there were new rules and stuff! But I didn't get nothing, expect this, a little bad written and overlong, spoiler sentence for my signature.

Sign up open for the next game, I think I will not open a new thread because the games are a little short.

Lists will posted soon!

Wow, I won. :smallbiggrin: I'd like to thank everyone who made deals and traded votes with me. I couldn't have done it without you all. Pwenet, I would apologize for conspiring against you, but it was either you or me. Such is the nature of this game.

Raiser Blade
2007-08-25, 12:36 PM
Bu..but you made a deal with me :smallfrown:




Jontom Xire
2007-08-25, 02:17 PM
Darn it, D'anna Biers and I had almost the same list. If I'd known you could put two votes on the same person I could have saved her and had a deal with her to work together.

Raiser Blade
2007-08-25, 02:20 PM
wait you can put 2 votes on the same person ???????

Why didn't someone tell me this earlier!

Zar Peter
2007-08-25, 03:30 PM
wait you can put 2 votes on the same person ???????

Why didn't someone tell me this earlier!

3.) How to kill
Everyone get three votes:

- a major vote (worth 3 points)
- a average vote (worth 2 points)
- a minor vote (worth 1 point)


I meant that that you must vote at last for TWO different players (Khaldan read it as you may only use two of his three points which is wrong.)

Anyway, for questions about the rules I have this little thread here, which is relativly abbandoned when I'm not posting.

2007-08-25, 03:32 PM
Hey, it worked! I even got to kill the narrator! So whenever you think that the rules are impossible to break, think of something.

((this post is not intended to make anyone do anything. Don't sue me))
