Texas has frequently been a battlefield, but never like this - cut off from the support of the full United States thanks to nebulous political machinations, with a rampaging Shine-fuelled army pouring across the Mexican border intent on conquest! Pancho Villa must be stopped, no matter the cost.

As Ma Ferguson mobilized the Texas State Guard, things began to go wrong - supplies never arrived at crucial destinations, troops were waylaid en route to battle, and battle-tested soldiers died in the night of mysterious causes. Reluctantly, the embattled Texan governor addressed her full army one cold morning. There were traitors among them - those who had thrown in with the Mexicans, for whatever reason. They needed to be found and eliminated - or Texas would fall to the marauders!

As the troops cheered for their leader and swore to hunt down every last turncoat, Ma carefully avoided mentioning that she'd gone and gotten herself some backstabbers in Pancho's camp too. Desperate times call for desperate measures, after all.




Welcome to the Texas State Guard thread, led by Ma Ferguson to drive back Pancho Villa's army!

SUPER IMPORTANT RULES WORTH REPEATING
  • NEVER EVER USE EXPLICIT NUMBERS when referring to your STATS/DAMAGE/HP.
  • You may use only one Ability per phase unless otherwise specified.
  • All action submissions are done via Column E of your role sheet, and results will be delivered to you in Column F (with other stats/HP updating automagically as needed). Please do not modify previous days' action submissions!
  • Day actions must be submitted before your thread executes someone or they are lost - honor system on this, please don't try to game the system by updating stuff afterwards. I can view sheets' revision history to check timing, but really don't want to have to.
  • You win when the enemy leader is dead.

Intelligent and bright, they explored a world that was new and strange to them. They liked it, they thought - a whole world just for them! They were dimly aware that a God had created them, was watching them; they called out to him, thanking him in a chittering language, before running off.


Hi I'm here now but it's new years weekend and I work long hours all weekend, so I won't participate much d1.

This is not very different from my usual d1s though, so whatever

Okay, everyone!

Let's all report in in an orderly fashion here. Obviously we want to have an idea of what people can do in battle, but not give away too much detailed information. So I've prepared a little survey to help everyone give me some nice rough claims to get started with. Please answer these questions in a timely manner and then y'all can get on with jokephase while I stay out of your way and obsess over the results.

1. Do you want to be in battle tonight?
A - YESSSSSSS
B - Yes
C - No
D - NO!!!

2. Okay, that's your N1 choice, but is that like, your overall position, or just a tactical choice for right now?
A - Please continue to keep me (on/off) the battlefield at all times if possible (unless I'm just about to die and need to heal up, obviously)
B - I'd really prefer to stay (on/off) the battlefield overall, yeah - but this might change if say, I'm out of Shine, or maybe I could still do something cool in the other position every once in a while.
C - That's my choice right now but I don't really care, I'm awesome both on and off the battlefield
D - That's my choice right now but I don't really care, I suck both on and off the battlefield

3. Regardless of what you answered above, assuming you end up in battle eventually.... front row or back row?
A. Front
B. Back

4. Do you have a very clear preference between Physical and Occult abilities? DON'T give away which one yet, just wondering... do you actually have to care about what kind of buffs you get?
A. Yeah, I definitely favor one type over the other WHICH I WILL NOT SAY JUST YET BECAUSE I AM A SMART TOWNIE TOWN
B. Nah, its all good

5a. If you had a dayvig right now, who would you shoot and why
5b. besides me

y'all know about how we can't no-lunch in this game cause it's just giving the enemy a free kill and all. So I want to make sure we do NOT leave things down to the wire always waiting for deadline to finalize things. But we do need to make sure people have a safe window to decide on day ability usage.

Can we agree that the first 24 hours of the game day are a definite no-hammer zone? And please try and get your day business decided in that time, unless you got a really good reason to risk it by waiting to observe more first. Then after that, it's all clear to try and start moving things toward a decision without too much handwringing over "oh why are we rushing~~~"

My life for aiur. Keep in mind you're the final authority on who we kill today. Let us do the scum hunting, use your authoritah to prod discussion into directions you think will be productive, keep your suspicious close to your chest or alternatively be tactical about the suspicions you express to gauge who bites on those lines of thinking.
