I'm going to try something here. I'm going to see if I can post the very first Traitor Game in these blog posts.

The First Traitor Game was merely an alternative to the Survivor threads that were common at the time. As you'll see, it wasn't that big on story. It was largely just 'Mafia/Werewolf' with comic book characters. As for roleplaying, only a few people really roleplayed their characters. Some of them would become mainstays of the Traitor Games.

The Traitor Games evolved a lot since the first game, having a greater emphasis on characters and story in addition to the game mechanic. As such, I consider this game and the one that followed, Traitor Game II, to be 'prototypes' before Traitor Game III came in with its first 'meeting round' allowing everyone to meet each other and roleplay their characters before the first kill. Anyway, since this is also the shortest of the Traitor Games, I think I'm going to try posting it here.

The Comic Universe Traitor Game! Hey everyone! The traitor has sent me their first kill. However, the traitor listed two kills. For this game, the traitor will only be allowed to kill one person at a time. So once the traitor has sent me their choice for their kill, and once the SHIELD Agent PMs me back their guess, I'll begin the story for the game. For now, here are the rules once again:

1. The traitor will PM me a character they want killed off. The SHIELD Agent will also PM me with their guess on who the traitor is. After that, I will post if the SHIELD Agent was right in their guess, and also I will post who is killed.

2. Voting will then start on who might be the traitor. [B]Only the remaining players are allowed to officially vote. Players are encouraged to provide a reason why they are not they are not the traitor. The players are only allowed 1 vote.[/B] However, everyone (players and observers of the game) can speculate on who the traitor is.

3. Once the players have voted, the one with the majority will be accused. They will then reveal if they were the traitor. If the accused is not the traitor, then they are eliminated, and the game will continue.

4. From there, I will PM the traitor with his next kill, and, if necessary, PM the SHIELD Agent with their guess on who the traitor is. Voting then starts again. If it gets down to the final two, then the traitor automatically kills the last character and wins.

The Purple Skull 09-17-2006 12:05 AM

I've decided to go ahead and post the first kill. I will post whether or not the SHIELD Agent is right with their guess ASAP. I'm going to give until tomorrow Noon ET for the SHIELD Agent to reply. If there is no reply, I will designate a new SHIELD Agent. So on with the game!

A mysterious time rift has brought together 13 unique individuals to an isolated, undisclosed area:

The Shade Ambush Bug John Constantine Professor Xavier Cyclops Robotman Batman Spider-Woman Bouncing Boy Shadow King Judge Dredd Johnny Alpha Lobo

Out of nowhere, the one who has brought them together appears. It is the Beyonder! The Beyonder has informed them that there is someone among their number who has agreed to eliminate everybody. If this person is successful, then they will receive unimaginable power.

The Beyonder lets the group know that their mission is to scope out the traitor and banish him or her into Limbo. Also, the Beyonder informs everyone that there is someone in the group who is working undercover for SHIELD and will assist in trying to find the traitor without revealing themselves.

Hours pass, and the traitor strikes! One axe to the back of the head later, and the Shadow King is the first to fall at the hands of the traitor!

OK, not exactly the best story ever, but whatever.

Suspect List 00 Grazzt - The Shade 00 Jack Zodiac - Ambush Bug 00 Sean Whitmore - John Constantine 00 Puma - Professor Xavier 00 mattbib - Cyclops 00 ScottDMSimmons - Robotman 00 darkkeeperjr - Batman 00 tangentman - Spider-Woman (Drew) 00 Bouncing Boy - Bouncing Boy 00 BYC - Shadow King [ELIMINATED] 00 Motormouse - Judge Dredd 00 Joe Acro - Johnny Alpha 00 Forefinger - Lobo

The voting format is similar to a Survivor game. Please ADD 1 point to the one you think is the traitor. You can only vote once! Again, giving your reason why you are not the traitor is encouraged. ONLY PLAYERS CAN VOTE! However, everyone observing the game is free to speculate on who the traitor is.

Voting starts now!


The Purple Skull 09-17-2006 12:47 AM

I just a reply from the SHIELD Agent. The Agent has made an incorrect guess. Vote now!


Jack Zodiac 09-17-2006 12:51 AM

Suicide! The Shadow King was depressed because he was such a crappy X-Men villain. :p

Or, uh... Lobo. I don't trust that fella'. :mad:


mattbib 09-17-2006 01:44 AM

I guess I'll vote out Batman. He's definitely not trustworthy.


BYC 09-17-2006 01:54 AM

Shadow King has no head! This is OUTRAGEOUS! How dare this traitor attack me. I blame Professor X for this. XAVIER!

It's kinda funny I was doing my thing today, get home, eat, watch TV, check my internet sites, PMed about the game starting, and then dying immediately.

Shadow King curses you all.


tangentman 09-17-2006 02:09 AM

Spider-Woman shook her head. [COLOR="Red"]"[i]Why[/i] would Batman kill the Shadow King? What does he gain from it?"[/COLOR] As she challenged the accusation, Jessica locked eyes with Cyclops and the Ambush Bug. [COLOR="red"]"Lobo seems like a possible choice, but from what little I've seen, the method of murder doesn't add up with Lobo's more...[i]visceral[/i] style."[/COLOR]

Smirking, Spider-Woman glanced at Professor Xavier. [COLOR="Red"]"If we wanted to go with an obvious choice, then the Professor's history with the deceased makes him a probable suspect. [b]Too[/b] obvious a suspect?"[/COLOR] She considered that possibility in thoughtful silence.

After several seconds, Spider-Woman turned toward one of the men who'd spoken first. She smiled as watched Ambush Bug from her "perch" on the wall. [COLOR="red"]"One might even argue that [b]I'm[/b] the killer, given my own, shall we say, colorful past. However, I think that our killer will actually be the [i]least[/i] predictable choice.[/COLOR] Spider-Woman watched Ambush Bug with intense focus. [COLOR="red"]"If I were to guess anyone at the moment, I would say [b]Ambush Bug[/b] is our killer. He's fast and also familiar with assassination--[i]right[/i], Bug?"[/COLOR]


Bouncing Boy 09-17-2006 02:44 AM

"Going by the history tapes," Bouncing Boy thinks to himself, "Lobo seems like the most likely choice. He is a ruthless bounty hunter after all."


ScottDMSimmons 09-17-2006 03:08 AM

Cliff thought back to the dark times when the Chief, his mentor and friend, had betrayed the entire Doom Patrol. How could someone he was so close to become SO evil, or at least so misguided? As he pondered this, and thought about Shadow King, he realized that anyone could be the traitor.

John Constantine was a friend when Cliff was in Totems. Could he be the traitor? Cliff shook his head. Maybe it's the brain malfunctioning.... "You're only a brain in a robotic shell, Cliff..." he thought to himself. "Things are not always going to seem or feel right all the time."

Maybe it's the one close to you again, Cliff... the one wrestling with his own personal demons... real demons... [b]JOHN CONSTANTINE[/b] "Hellblazer" could be the killer.

double post sorry....

"Everyone I've met with 'unimaginable power' has been a right twat," [I]John snorted, placing a cigarette in his mouth.[/I] "The only power I need is this." [I]John whips out a Zippo and lights the cig.[/I] "Alakazam."

"Ask Rob Zombie over there," [I]he sneered, chucking a thumb in Lobo's direction.[/I] "Mebbe he knows what done in th' Big Floaty Head."

"Fetal's Giz! I always get all the blame for this kind of crap. Killin' is fun and all, but just fraggin' a dude with an axe in the head seems like of.....boring." Lobo said while holding a severed head from an unknown body in one hand, and a six pack in the other.

"I think it's the crazy bastich in the green suit over there. That fragger [B]Ambush Bug[/B] probably done it! Ya never know that that bastich is going to do next."


darkkeeperjr 09-17-2006 06:56 AM

Wasn't the bug around when shadow got it? Why do the bug look so gulity? Cause he is gulity! [B]Ambush Bug[/B] did it!

I was trying to warn him! See?

I know what this is... this is all a conspiracy. Dan Didio's behind it! He's been trying to kill us Giffen-written folk every chance he gets. Don't let him win. :(

[i]After a few moments of recollection, Irwin realizes what he just said.[/i]

And, um... sorry about accusing you, Lobo. We Giffen-folk need to stick together. You just, y'know... c'mon, you're a !@#$% murderer! Where's Julie? He wouldn't let this happen to me. :(


Forefinger 09-17-2006 07:32 PM

"An alliance eh?" Lobo said while swinging his blood covered hook around on it's chain. "What if you are the traitor, ya bastich? Aw, hell, we can stick together then. Giffen-folk unite!.......until we can find that bastich and frag him for sticking me with Grant for all that time...."


The Purple Skull 09-17-2006 07:39 PM

We're still awaiting Joe Acro's vote. As of now, Ambush Bug & Lobo are tied with the most votes. If Joe Acro does not vote for either Ambush Bug or Lobo, then all the players will re-vote between Ambush Bug & Lobo.


Jack Zodiac 09-17-2006 07:59 PM

Too little, too late, main man. :( One way or another, one of us is getting the axe.

Eh... metaphorical axe, not literal axe.


Joe Acro 09-17-2006 08:04 PM

Johnny Alpha had waited patiently for everyone else to reveal their thoughts and votes. Observant, he noted those he deemed suspicious. Ambush Bug and Lobo had the highest number of votes, a tie. Voting for a third party would have been pointless. Alpha thought it would better for him to make the decision than trust the rest. Maybe a bit of rivalry surged in him. It could have been all the encounters he had had in the past. Whatever the reason, Johnny Alpha chose Lobo.

(Sorry for my lateness, I had other matters to attend to. Was a time limit established?)


The Purple Skull 09-17-2006 08:08 PM

It's quite alright for voting late. There's no time limit anyway. The votes are in. Is the one accused the traitor? Find out when I post the story in a few minutes.


Jack Zodiac 09-17-2006 08:11 PM

  • sniff* Good night, sweet prince. :(


The Purple Skull 09-17-2006 08:28 PM

Hours after the Shadow King's beheading, the Beyonder makes his return. He asks the group if they have found the traitor. Batman decides to step up and tells the god-like being that Lobo is the traitor!

Lobo: "What the frag?!?! You can't do this to me! I'm the Archbishop of---"

Beyonder: "Enough! If that is your choice, so be it."

Then, with with a wave of his hand, the Beyonder blasts Lobo dead-on and banishes him off to Limbo. The group is relieved that this ordeal is finally over.

Beyonder: "Ha Ha Ha Ha. This is far from over. What you've done is banish an innoncent being. The traitor is still among you......"

Yup, you guys were wrong! Lobo was innocent! I'm now waiting for the replies from the traitor and the SHIELD Agent.


Jack Zodiac 09-17-2006 08:32 PM

You monsters! :( Do you have any idea how long it took him to get back into the spotlight? He was a midget running around with Young Justice for so long, everyone forgot how hilarious and brutally violent he could be, and now you've ruined it all! :mad: A pox on you!


The Purple Skull 09-17-2006 08:48 PM

The group, still shocked after making the wrong accusation, decide to reconvene in another location to eat. Around the table, fingers are pointed at one another. Accusations are being made left and right. Just then, Spider-Woman quiets everyone down. She tells them that they must think of a more coherent plan to scope out the traitor. Batman interrupts.

Batman: "You're all doing this wrong!" "Now I've put some clues tog---"

Just then, the Dark Knight, begins to shake. "Something's wrong with the wine!" In a matter of seconds, flesh eating bacteria begins to develop rapidly inside Batman's body, eating him inside out. For years, Batman's rogues have tried to eliminate him and failed. But for this night, the traitor has finally succeeded. The Dark Knight has been poisoned.

Spider-Woman: "Oh !@#$"

HOLY BAT-DEATH!!! Surely I can't be dead. Why would I be drinking on the job? Especially wine. I must have taken a bat antidote before I drank the poison. I should be coming to soon, shouldn't I?....OH MY! Mom, Dad, your alive like me. ...oh dang! they got me.

Quickly regaining his composure after the caped crusader's violent demise, Cyclops regains his composure and eyes the room warily and then glares at the man across from him.

"There's only one person here capable of something this despicable. The same man who's lied to me my entire life. The same man who's held a sick torch for my dead wife since she was a girl. The same man who's demonstrated time and again that he's lost all morals. I'm talking about you, [B]Professor X[/B]."

Don't worry, buddy! Trust me, I've died more than enough times to know, if a writer's got an idea for ya', you're still alive and kickin'! Hopefully the next story won't end with you being eaten from the inside out. :eek:


ScottDMSimmons 09-17-2006 10:40 PM

Cliff's human brain raced as his computerized eyes took in the horrific moment of watching one of his universe's beloved "trinity" fall before him. Poisoned, they said.

Initially, his thoughts were that poison was something spiders did. But Jessica Drew had been leading the meeting and reacted with shock when Bruce keeled over.

Eyeing the suspects yet again, he stopped when he got to [B]The Shade[/B]. Cliff knew John drank out of habit and make a fool of himself, but with Shade drinking was like an artform and did it with dignity. Who better to kill someone with a "touch of class" than SHADE?
