The Introduction
History of New Gettysburg:
  • AD 2068: Mankind discovers faster-than-light travel and begins to tackle the problem of terraforming other planets.
  • AD 2354: Mankind makes first contact with intelligent life, beginning a cycle of wars between multiple species culminating in the destruction of human civilization and the assimilation of humanity into the other races, as slaves and through DNA-manipulated interbreeding.
  • AD 2401: Uriah Farman, a genetically modified human, uncovers a new field of science - telepathics - and identifies a universal human psychic communication medium, through which he sends a rallying message to all human and half-human creatures in existence. What remains of humanity pulls together to form the colony of New Philadelphia on the scarred planet of Mars, Earth having been destroyed during the wars of the 24th century.
  • AD 2472: The town of New Gettysburg is founded by colonists from Mars on a remote planet in the arm of the galaxy known as Atlantis.
  • AD 2504: Two distinct factions begin to develop in New Gettysburg: The Archar and the Voldren. The origin of this distinction is buried in genetics and history, and thus is irrelevant.
  • AD 2505: A silent civil war begins in New Gettysburg with the coordinated assassination of the Archar leader, Ben Chastrin. As citizens of the town quietly join one side or another - and trusting anyone becomes impossible without proof - spying, assassination, and general skulduggery commence.
  • AD 2505: The Voldren defeat the Archar and remain victorious, if such an ending may be called a victory.

The game is over.


Quote:
The Final Note

This game is over. Thank you for participating in my grand experiment.

I apologize to any players who believe they were treated unfairly. I'm sorry if errors caused incorrect results. I'm sorry to all who died before they got a chance to do anything.

This game may be over, but what I've learned from this and what you all have learned from this - hopefully you have learned something from this - will not leave us unchanged.

Bon voyage.

-ImagoDei

I'm posting this question here because its answer may be of interest to others.

Can you change night actions once you send them in?
Example:
I send in my night action at 12:00
A sends their action at 12:30
?? I change my night action at 13:00 ??

If this is allowed, my action would take place after A's, right?

This. I would if I could with a clear conscience. I would encourage all of those out there who aren't currently trying to do more than a couple of sane individuals would attempt together to sign up, though!

In that case, yes, your changed action would take place after the other person's. As soon as I can update the OP, I will to clarify that and some additional points that people have brought to my attention.

Oh, and you should all sign up. ::nods:: ImagoDei has some awesome things planned out, from what I've heard. Should be legendary. You should all sign up, even if you don't have much time. (Seriously, it's a mafia game. How long could it take?)
