Rules thread: http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3743898



On a foreign, sandy shore, thousands of miles from the powerful citystate of Achaea and its allies, lies a city.It is a city beloved of many of the gods, filled with untold wealth. Itís name... is Troia. And just recently, it became home to the most beautiful woman in the world - Helen, and a thousand ships with a thousand thousand men from Achaea to bring her home to her husband the King of Sparta, Menelaus.

The Achaeans have made landfall, and the city of Troia is now under siege. Soldiers like you will play a decisive part in the victories made here, but heed the voice of the gods. For no mere mortal could turn from their fury, just as any true hero will shine with their favour.


King Agamemnon - CCKeane rules this thread
Current state of the game:
Battleground locations:
Greek Fleet Beachhead (Trojans kill someone OoC if they win - king chooses which battle combatant makes the choice) Achaean
Greek Siege Camp. Defenders ranged row gain +1 Combat Skill. Each surviving attacker gains 2 offerings if victorious Achaean
Battle Plain (Neutral)
Trojan Wall Battlements Defenders Melee gains +1 Combat Skill, each surviving attacker gains +2 offerings if victorious) Trojan
Trojan Palace (Greeks kill someone OoC if they win - king chooses which battle combatant makes the choice) Trojan

Isle of Delphi: May only be fought over once. The winner of this battle wins unimaginable treasure, but runs the risk of divine disfavour. (unraided)

In the beginning, there was a hot babe named Helen. She was pretty good and was married to the King's brother, Menelaus. Menelaus was so cool he got to be the king of Sparta at the same time as having the hottest wife. Too bad we was a chump, heh heh. Helen loved accents thanks to the gods sending her a Learn French in 30 days vhs and was whisked away to Troy with its baby Paris. Nelson called on his older brother Aggamemnon to gather an army of bullies to take back his babe. And that's how the Trojan War started.

Don't sweat it, give broad descriptions of your skills if you want, if you don't that's fine.

So to start things up, I have a once per game ability to bestow an item upon a player. This greatly expands their combat ability, but at the cost of changing their alignment to survivor.

But hey, funny story, survivor alignment isn't scum alignment.

If you are scum alignment and want to play as survivor, post and let me know and we can work something out. (Just vote along side me)

I'm town, but I'm also pretty good at combat, so you might want to consider giving me the item. I'd never think of pulling a heel turn on you.

Also, although I can be used in either line and have some nice attack skills, for the moment I must insist that I fight only to defend our Greek positions. I will, of course, let you know if this changes.

Let me also start by telling a story about when PMom and I met. PMom came to NYC, and he kept talking about the problem of people sleeping in the streets. He went in and on about it, and he kept saying, "You know, you just don't think it'll happen to you, but I see all these people on the street and they're just like me and it's very upsetting." I agreed with him and we moved on, and then he turns to me with tears in his eyes, points to a big pile of dog poo poo on the sidewalk, and says, "That could be me!"
