Okay, I intend to re-post Traitor Game VI: Back to Basics soon. But first, an introduction.

At the end of Traitor Game V, we all discussed ideas for the next Traitor Game. Many of us came up with ideas. The ideas were so good we had to use all of them sooner or later. There was 'It's in the Cards' by tangentman, involving Madame Xanadu and a mysticism/magic based scenario. There was 'I'll Take Valhalla', by Indigo Al involving the feud between the Norse gods Odin and Hela. There was 'How Low Can You Limbo' by Joe Acro involving Immortus and his apparent goal to preserve Limbo. And of course there was my 'A Galaxy Far, Far, Away' involving Darth Jubba the Sith Hutt.

First, however, we decided that the Purple Skull's scenario would go first. This scenario took bits and pieces of other ideas the Purple Skull had (the Living Tribunal, Doom, and so on) and put them together in a scenario where everyone was free to choose whichever character they wanted, with no limits. Sort of 'going back to basics' after the special 'holiday themed' scenario of the previous game.

However, there were to be a few new twists. One of them was the introduction of a 'first kill NPC'. This was my idea. Having been a part of Traitor Game V, and having read the previous four games, I felt sorry for the poor player who was eliminated first before they had a chance to vote. So I suggested that there be an NPC first kill, which would allow all the players an opportunity to vote at least once. The Purple Skull and the rest embraced the idea.

But who would that first NPC kill be? Well, in our discussion, we thought that it was funny that in the first three Traitor Games, a different player signed up as Batman, and in each of them Batman got targeted by the Traitors. So we decided that the 'first kill' NPC would be Batman. And thus Batman officially became the 'Kenny McCormick' of the Traitor Games for a while, his multiple over-the-top deaths becoming something of a running gag for a while. Finally, however, we decided to give Batman his due in a scenario revolving around him and his efforts to break free of that cycle. But that's a story for Traitor Game XIV: Legion.

In any case, the 'first kill NPC' has been used in almost all of the Traitor Games since this one, giving everyone a chance to cast their vote at least once. So this is one of the ways this game marks another step in the evolution of the Traitor Games. Another way is the increased emphasis on role-playing and characterization, which had been getting better with each game.

So Traitor Game VI begins, taking what had been a pretty silly subplot from the previous game, and having it be the basis for the main storyline of this one. Indeed, as TV Tropes would put it, Beware The Silly Ones. First off, I'll re-post the Purple Skull's introduction before getting into the game proper...

With the new game just a day away, I thought the time was right to post the prologue to the story.


The Watcher: Greetings. I am Uatu. I come from an alien race of observers called the Watchers. Today, I would like to tell you a story. A story th---


Rogue Watcher: [COLOR="Indigo"]No. No. Oh hell no! You sir, are not going to tell the prologue to the new Traitor Game. If there is someone who’s gonna do it, then it’s gonna be me. [/COLOR]

The Watcher: You know what? Forget it! You want to tell the story? Fine! It was a dumb story to begin with! This is quite possibly the most unrealistic piece of crap I have ever heard of! Who would believe this $@#! anyway?! I would rather tell the Onslaught story again.

Dr. Doom: [COLOR="Green"]If you do not want to tell the story, then leave.[/COLOR]

The Watcher: You will not get any argument from me.

Dr. Doom: [COLOR="Green"]Now, as you were, Rogue Watcher.[/COLOR]


Rogue Watcher: [COLOR="Indigo"]As you may have remembered, in the previous Traitor Game, Victor Von Doom accidentally blew his brains out after finally acquiring an Official High Energy Plutonium Powered 500 Radial Blast Continuum Transfunctioner. At the conclusion of the game, his remains were returned to Latveria where he was reborn. He was made stronger, faster. They had the technology.

After his resurrection, Doom spent the next few years mastering the Continuum Transfunctioner until he finally got it right. With the CT at his grasp, Doom was able to gain control of his universe and seize unimaginable power! Many heroes tried to stop him, but ultimately failed. However, Doom was not finished. One universe was not enough for the absolute Lord of Latveria. He set about crossing multiple dimensions, all of which had the same result. Doom had a universal monopoly all to himself. It seemed that Doom could not be stopped.[/COLOR]

Dr. Doom: [COLOR="Green"]Who’s the man? I mean seriously.[/COLOR]

RW: [COLOR="Indigo"]Oh but you see, Doom would be challenged.[/COLOR]

Dr. Doom: [COLOR="Green"]What?! Who dares?! Whoever it is has made a powerful enemy today![/COLOR]

RW: [COLOR="Indigo"]Would you shut up and listen! Anyway, Doom now set his sights on gaining power from the One Above All. However, this move did not sit well with the Living Tribunal! Forced to intervene, the Living Tribunal gathers survivors from multiple dimensions in hopes to overthrow the power-mad monarch once and for all!

So the stage is set! It’s Dr. Doom versus the Living Tribunal’s team! But maybe it isn’t that cut and dry. Could it be that the team gathered by the Living Tribunal is not as unified as they seem? Could there be a traitor or traitors among the group?[/COLOR]

Dr. Doom: [COLOR="Green"]Well it is called the Traitor Game, you know.[/COLOR]

RW: [COLOR="Indigo"]I was just about to get that part. Anyway, the answers to these questions and more await you on the Traitor Game VI: Back To Basics! Tune in Tuesday at 11 PM ET only on the CBR Community Forums![/COLOR]


Not exactly the greatest thing ever written, but who cares. I'll be back to post the final players list in about an hour.

OOC: Of course, the whole thing stretches my suspension of disbelief to the breaking point, but I guess certain portions of these Traitor Games are intended to be absurd. Of course, I WAS wondering just what the Continuum Transfunctioner actually did, and why Doom wanted it so badly.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the game. I'm wondering just what the setting's going to be like. Maybe you'll go into that in the list posting...



RUMINATIONS: We have indeed come a long way since this. As the bar has been raised, much of our writing has improved. But we owe it partially to players putting in their best effort in games such as this one. The good parts will start soon. Stay tuned for Part 1 of the Traitor Game Essentials re-presentation of Traitor Game VI: Back to Basics.
