    Default Team Ready, Aim, Fire! IX

    Hello, and welcome to the ninth game of the team-based spin-off of Silkenfist's Ready, Aim, Fire!

    The theme for this game will be The Jungle. One one side, we will have a British Archaeological Expedition, and on the other, The Perils of the Jungle. Perils can be anything from wild animals to pygmies. Archaeologists can be... well, any archaeologist. The expedition is mostly British, but if you don't like tea and crumpets, you can also choose to be of another nationality. The game is set around the year 1900.

    Registration is open until Saturday, 18:00 GMT. If you want to join a specific team, please specify which one. If you don't specify a team, I will add you to a random team.

    The Rules:
    Spoiler
    Show
    The rules are like those of the standard game (linky!), with a few additions:
    1. The players are divided into two or more teams.
    1a. At recruitment, the players specify their preferred team.
    1b. Players who don't specify a team will be placed in a random team.
    1c. If one team has more members than the other(s), I will randomly move players around. I'll first try to even it out with the players who didn't specify a team.
    2. You can not shoot players on your own team.
    3. If your team is the only one left standing, you win. There are no individual victories in this game - only victories as a team.

    There are also some rules that aren't critical to the gameplay but are important nonetheless:
    1. You can only send one action at a time. You can't send actions in advance.
    2. The sign-up period is four days, and each round takes three days.
    3. When there are only a few players left, each round takes only two days, or sometimes even one. Usually, I just wait for everyone to submit their action and then write the round as soon as possible.

    [toffeenosedaccent] Well my old fellow. It does seem such a shame that one hasn't been invited on this expedition. One must know how much I enjoy shooting endangered animals and looting old tombs.[/toffeeenoseaccent]

    Yep, I'm a Brit all right.

    Never let it be said that the Victorian spirit of adventure has dimmed. Lord Eidreff of Throtoch Hill was overjoyed to offer his sponsorship and many manly skills to such a philanthropic expedition.

    I'm interested in joining, though I'd appreciate if someone either posted or PM'ed me an abbreviated explanation of the rules. (Is this free-form? )

    I'm also willing to join whichever side; although I've always wanted to play (and am well-suited to the part of) a spear-wielding cannibal, I can't resist the allure of being able to constantly repeat the phrase, "I say, old chap, I believe we're in a spot of trouble."

    Rules are at the top, FoE. They aren't long. And it's not free-form in the traditional meaning.

    Tea and crumpets? I'm on the archaeologist team. Smoking a pipe of course.

    Actually I'll be a chaotic good shotgun-weilding renegade penguin that rebelled against the perils of the jungle and joined the archaeologists.

    As always, you can't get rid of me! Perils, please.

    I'll be a discarded remnant of some ancient and highly-advanced society, my ancient metal husk long ago 'reclaimed' by the Rainforest, yet still partially functional and incredibly dangerous.

    Or, for short, Lost Technology. It's a valid Peril of any semi-fictional Jungle.
