Hey all!

It’s been FAR too long since we’ve had a round of DaU, so I thought I’d try my hand at running one!

I thoroughly enjoyed the additions Ruerl made to the rules in his previous game, so I’ll be using his modified version of the game. Check out DAU 11 for the rules.

The character descriptions are only meant to get you started, be creative! If you want to play a particular type of character, shoot me a PM.

I thought I might change the setting to something a little more festive. The game will take place in the city of Marienburg. The wealthy Peter Frederich has invited guests from all over Marienburg to his palace. Dismissing petty superstition, Peter has called for a celebration during the normally somber time around Hexensnacht, the Witching Night. Unfortunately, recent rumors concerning disappearing servants and a possible murderer on the loose have put the celebrations on hold…

Thats what I've been wondering #-o Ussually DAU DAUs fill up within 2 days. My guess is that its due to the overall lack of activity in RP the last few months.

I am not sure if this is still open but as nothing says it’s not and I cannot see a game thread I thought I would post.

If there is still space and a game to play I am in, I haven’t played one of these here before but I have done plenty of similar things on Druchii net (including being a Druchii assassin in Ulthuan, I won too :D ) .

Fully workable, I personally prefer smaller DaU's, that gives more time to RP, and makes the action quicker and cleaner. ;)

Not to mention it makes my job easier. :P

I'll get started on your characters then, but I'll leave the sign up open. Remember to send me a PM if you have any preferences concerning your character's gender/race/background/whatever.

I hate to be pushy but is this happening? It's just that it has been a while now and we have still heard nothing.

It's happening! :D Sorry about the delay, I'm almost done with the character descriptions. I'll try to have them sent out by tomorrow.

Never heard of any. That would be interesting though.

And welcome Shandiar! Sign up is closed now so I can finish these damn descriptions. :P

Play thread will be up as soon as I've sent them out. We'll be starting during the day, as I hate the idea of someone getting killed without having the chance to say anything.

You can start it at night and kill a fake character who isn't represented by anyone

That’s certainly the way it has been done for all the SAU/TAU (that’s Slaanesh and Tzeentch amongst us respectively, the D.Net version of these games) that I have ever played in or run. To be honest I am a little surprised to find a system where one of the players gets Zero play time, getting killed off on night one is bad enough. Glad you are changing it.

I've also see ones where players can chose to Vote: Abstain should they feel there isn't enough evidence within the first day or so to feasibly kill someone off just on a hunch or bad luck. Personally I also like that addition to the game.

I don't remember that. Heheh....heh... >_>

I think it was Ruerl who changed that rule, actually. Anyways, we'll start during the day(with a fake character having been killed, as Ghost suggested). I don't mind the abstaining from voting on the first day, so long as it isn't abused later.

Character descriptions are finally going out, and the play thread will be up soon after. I'll give some extra time for the first day so we can make sure everyone has a chance to post.
