Okay, and so we come to Part 3 of our special presentation of the very first Traitor Game.

It is obvious even without the aid of PSI Judges that Ambush Bug is the traitor in our midst. Perp, you're going down! [IMG]http://www.evolvedgames.com/images/cover-dreddA.jpg[/IMG]

Meanwhile, in limbo...

Shadow King, bored with pointless conversations with Lobo, has been trying to take over Batman.

After the Beyonder announced voting has been reopened to only 3 suspects, the Shadow King takes notice.

"I can't respect a man who was played by Keanu Reeves, not that I respect any man."

Shadow King now tries to focus all his psychic might to convince others to vote for Constantine.

[i]Irwin Schwab can read between the lines. The lines of reality and imagination. Between his world and the real world and inbetween.[/i]

Aw, Keanu wasn't [i]that[/i] bad. I mean, sure, he didn't have the hair... or the accent... or the demeanor... and Chaz was played by some kid going through puberty... and John didn't drink or curse enough... and he quit smoking... and The First of the Fallen was played by that weird guy from "Fargo," not Steve Buscemi, but the other one...

But... he wasn't all [i]that[/i] bad. Beat the hell out of the "Fantastic Four" movie. The only thing in that movie I'd touch with a ten foot pole is Jessica Alba. :o

Still needs to vote: tangentman Bouncing Boy

(What happens if there is another tie?)


tangentman 09-19-2006 09:01 PM

Batman's violent death shocked Spider-Woman into a plaintive silence. Although Jessica hadn't known the Batman long, she had respected his brilliant and disciplined mind. In some respects, she sensed they were kindred spirits.

Tragically, the exceptional detective was lost to the world. Because of the assassin among them. Spider-Woman said nothing as the accusations flew among them. From what she saw, the "Judge" apparently had the means to kill a person so gruesomely. For all the apparently alcoholism, Constantine was an accomplished mystic. Surely [i]he[/i] could conjure up a flesh-eating disease, right?

However, Jessica's thoughts kept returning to the most seemingly innocuous one among them. He acted the part of the clown, yet he also managed to distract the accusations away from himself. Jessica stared at the man she accused earlier with a grim smile. [COLOR="Red"]"There were good points raised about why and how John and the good Judge could be our killer. They each possess the means--and frankly, the [i]nastiness[/i] to pull it off." However...I'm not convinced that [b]Ambush Bug[/b] is innocent. After all, the bacteria could've been teleported into Batman's body."[/COLOR]

[i]Looks at the bubbly words above Jessica's head with an array of facial expressions reacting to each sentence.[/i]

Clown? Don't get all high-and-mighty just because Bendis picked you while he scraped the bottom of the barrel looking for characters to fill out his [i]New Avengers[/i]! If it weren't for him, you'd be in Limbo with me and the Main Man, just waiting for the day good ol' Keith decides to dust us off for another "Nothing" Special! And [i]you[/i] aren't so innocent yourself!

[img]EDITOR's NOTE: Alas, the links to these images no longer work. But one of them involved Spider-Woman's Hydra past. Another was a nonsense image about Spider-Woman's identity being a mystery[/img]

I rest my case.

tangentman 09-19-2006 10:33 PM

Spider-Woman groaned and rolled her eyes. Not that the Bug could see that gesture, thanks to the opaque masque, but her tone made it clear. [COLOR="Red"]"Do you even [b]know[/b] what you're saying when you spout off like this, or did you just forget to take your meds?" [/COLOR]


Jack Zodiac 09-19-2006 10:35 PM

I didn't forget, the editor did! And don't you roll your eyes at me! At least, if you do, don't narrate it. :rolleyes:

[QUOTE=Jack Zodiac]I didn't forget, the editor did! And don't you roll your eyes at me! At least, if you do, don't narrate it. :rolleyes:[/QUOTE]

Spider-Woman sighed. [COLOR="Red"]"That's what I thought. Skipped your anti-psychotics."[/COLOR] She hastily added with a huff, [color="red"]"I still think you're the killer."[/color]


Sean Whitmore 09-19-2006 10:46 PM

"This is gettin' ridiculous. You want I should just ask Batman who killed him so we can all go home? Take two minutes."


Jack Zodiac 09-19-2006 10:58 PM

That's right, you can make with the mojo! So, make with the mojo! Just... don't summon Nergal or some horny dog-monster instead, or one of The Fallen, or the Shadow Dog, and try not to kill anybody else, or send them to Hell, or lock 'em in a morgue slab on LSD with a liquifying corpse... or...

Y'know, I think I'll go stand over there while you do this. :(


Joe Acro 09-19-2006 11:06 PM

Alpha was glad to hear someone else becoming fed up with the Bug, too. When Constantine spoke, though, Johnny realized he needed to warn him. "When I tried to get a direct answer, the Beyonder took away my gun. You might suffer a similar fate. I wouldn't risk it."


Jack Zodiac 09-19-2006 11:09 PM

Pfft! "Risk" is one of John Constantine's middle names, and one of my favorite games! Holy crap, I'm rhyming, man! Don't tell the Demon, Etrigan. :(

Knock it off Jack, you !@#$%!


The Purple Skull 09-19-2006 11:24 PM

Minor change: Bouncing Boy's voting deadline has now been reduced to Midnight ET. The Beyonder has grown tired of, as you humans called it, "waiting". :p


Jack Zodiac 09-19-2006 11:27 PM

Maybe he was retconned out in the Waid reboot? That'd suck. :(


Sean Whitmore 09-20-2006 12:00 AM

[I]John awakened from his trance and lit another cigarette.[/I]

"Well, Batman didn't see who slotted him, so he's beating up random people until someone tells him. Some bloody detective. And Lobo's apparently been kicked out for doing ungodly things to 'Mazing Man, so Limbo is ANOTHER place he isn't allowed anymore."

The Purple Skull 09-20-2006 12:01 AM

Voting has closed. The next part of the story will be posted in a few minutes.


Jack Zodiac 09-20-2006 12:03 AM

I may be hanging from the bottom rung of the DC Universe's ladder, but I'm still better than all of you! I can't die! Haha! [b]HAHAHAHAHAHAHA![/b]

The Purple Skull 09-20-2006 12:15 AM

With the group reconvened, all but one had to yet to cast their vote. If Bouncing Boy voted for Ambush Bug, then he would be next to stand accused. Just when Bouncing Boy was about to cast his vote:

With all the clues I've gathered, I deduce that the traitor is Ambu--- ::ZAP::

Bouncing Boy has mysteriously disappeared! Unbeknowgnst to the group the Legionnaire was teleported to the cell of the monster known as Doomsday!

Dredd: "I knew it! I F#$@# knew it!"

Ambush Bug: "Whoops. Too early?"

Just then, the Beyonder appears.

Beyonder: "So have you made your decision?"

Constantine: "We voted for the damn bug, and he helped us out a bit by zapping the lardo!"

Beyonder: "You are correct! Ambush Bug is the traitor. Now you shall meet your fate at Limbo!"

Ambush Bug: "Nooooo! I demand a recounnnnnt!" ::Am. Bug is now in Limbo::

Beyonder: "Well done. First, I shall bring back the ones who were eliminated from the game. There. Now, you shall receive your prize....."

The group ponders how they can handle having unimaginable power.

Beyonder: "......a lifetime supply of soup! Congratulations to all!"

Lobo: "That's fraggin it?!?!"

[I]Meanwhile, in Limbo[/I] Ambush Bug: HAHAHAHAHA! Losers!

Professor Xavier: ::Sigh:: "Damn Beyonder."


Joe Acro 09-20-2006 12:18 AM

"He should've let me blow his face off. He'd have spent less time with him that way."


tangentman 09-20-2006 12:19 AM

Spider-Woman's theory paid off--the traitor was exposed. Good riddance to irritating bugs. When the Beyonder promised to return those who'd been "murdered", Jessica felt a profound sense of relief. Then, the prize was revealed. She raised an eyebrow. [COLOR="Red"]"Do you have Cream of Broccoli or French Onion?"[/COLOR]


OOC: Do I rock or do I [b]rock[/b]? :D


Jack Zodiac 09-20-2006 12:28 AM

OSTIC (Oh So Totally In Character!): You rock at sucking, ya' sucker! I wasn't even doing it out of sheer evil, I was just bored. Y'know, they had me in mind as the mysterious villain in [i]Identity Crisis[/i], right? You? They gave you to Bendis! Ha!

Now, time to guess the SHIELD agent. I'm saying... Johnny Alpha. Only because Spider-SHIELDra would've been too obvious. And I'd be seriously offended, Johnny-Boy, if you weren't some nobody British comic book character!

See ya' in hell, suckers! I'm off to do my [i]Nowhere Special[/i]!


The Purple Skull 09-20-2006 12:30 AM

Hope everyone had fun with the game. I know we hit a bit of a snag with the voting delays, but overall I enjoyed. It got my creative juices going. I hope to continue hearing responses from the players of the game (in character would be swell!).

In the meantime, I'd like to start signups tomorrow (or should I say later today) for a new game. This time, time limits will be enforced each round to help keep the game moving. Hopefully, more players signup and maybe this time the next traitor picked can outlast his opponents.


Sean Whitmore 09-20-2006 12:33 AM

"Fuck am I gonna do with soup? Ya can't smoke soup! Ya can't drink sou--Well, you can drink soup, but who the hell wants to?"

[I]John threw his spent ciggy on the ground and stormed off.[/I]

"Sod this fer a game o' soldiers. Oh, an' Johnny Alpha's the SHIELD agent. Cheers."


SEAN


The Purple Skull 09-20-2006 12:34 AM

Oh before I forget, the SHIELD Agent well let Nick Fury tell you guys:

Nick Fury: "Robotman, you're fired!"

Yup it was ScottDMSimmons


Jack Zodiac 09-20-2006 12:35 AM

I'm up for the next game, Skull, whenever you get it goin'. And it's a good thing Bouncing Boy didn't show up, 'cause Joe was gettin' the axe next round. :p

Robotman as the SHIELD agent makes sense! :D

Yeah, I'm up for another game.


IC: Spider-Woman clucked her tongue at Bug's retort. [COLOR="Red"]"Says the guy with more tired jokes than the last 10 years of SNL combined!"[/COLOR]


Jack Zodiac 09-20-2006 12:44 AM

Ha! Says the woman with more pity appearances than the last ten years of my career combined!


BYC 09-20-2006 01:07 AM

Shadow King was slipping at his soup, while in Batman's body.

"I hate mushrooms, and I hate Xavier. And now, I hate Ambush Bug. Maybe I should take over his body..."

Aw man, I was at work, and I missed the revote, so because of that I got teleported to Doomsday, that sucks ass. Though I still maintain that Bouncing Boy could beat Doomsday.


darkkeeperjr 09-20-2006 06:06 AM

See I told you the bug was no good! Hmmm These cans of soup will make a good weapon in my war against crime and stupidity.

My "continually implicate myself to make everyone think I was being framed while secretly taking out the people against me" idea wasn't working very well. :(


ScottDMSimmons 09-20-2006 08:30 PM

Well, that game was over fast!

Yep, I was the SHIELD agent. I took it rather seriously and had a whole list going, and likely suspects as the game went on.

It was hard trying to figure out who was the traitor. It was pretty early on in the game, and I think one or two more rounds and I might have figured it out. Ambush Bug was my next guess if Judge Dredd had been eliminated.

In my PM guesses, I had guessed Constantine and Johnny Alpha. I wasn't sure about the SHIELD agent rules the first round, so that's why the vote and guess were the same. The second round I thought Shade was a good choice. Then it was between Bug and Dredd the second round tie-breaker, and I thought Dredd was the most likely of the two.

Sorry, "Fury".... but I only joined up with SHIELD to meet Sharon Carter anyway.

Scott




Joe Acro 09-20-2006 11:49 PM

I was genuinely surprised that after I wrote that outburst no one thought Johnny was the traitor. I'd have considered that suspicious.

BYC 09-21-2006 04:42 AM

So when's the next game? I look forward to having a longer life this time.




And that's it, really. The first Traitor Game. I told you it was short. :) We've come a LONG way since this one. Since then, they've become more of an exercise in group storytelling, while still retaining the 'game' structure. Later games within the first year would have greater storylines, and a greater emphasis on role-play. Anyway, this concludes this special presentation of the first Traitor Game.
