Approved by birrymirrs ching ching ring rong. MUDS Institution of Freedom, MUDS HQ, 2025 The leaders of the former MUDS REBELS elite squadron of racist, incestuous, Southern drunkard swampdwellers sit around, drinking cheap beer handed to them by the maid missing a third of her teeth at 22. They have had control over the world, and most of SANDS ACQUISITIONS, INC.'s former territory, for over three years now. It seems as though the SANDS ACQUISITIONS, INC. has accepted their role as subservient to the MUDS INSTITUTE. There has been no word of the scattered survivors making any sort of movement or organized opposition. Perhaps the world was finally at peace, under the less than qualified leadership of the gator-shooting, former REBELS MUDS INSTITUTE. SANDS ACQUISITIONS, INC. ORIENT HQ, TIBETAN TEMPLE, 2025 A band of morbidly obese, sweaty men in suits, highly attractive women in skimpy outfits, Tibetan monks, and assorted desert-dwelling creatures gather in the now-abandoned building: the former Orient headquarters of SANDS ACQUISITIONS, INC. The Asian branch was long neglected after the global corportation fell, however this benefits MR SANDSMAN's fifth clone quite nicely. The obese, SANDSwich-loving executive tugs his suit down as he sits in his boat, staring around the table at his fellow SANDS ACQUISITIONS, INC. forces. They smile back, knowing that soon, those ratty MUDS REBELS will be kicked back to where they belong. A plan is hatching.. Somewhere in the Alps, Switzerland, 2025 A group of cold, frozen men gather around a table carved from ice. They lay their plans down and look around. The walls of hyperadvanced computer technology and climate analysis glimmer against the ice. SNOWS GLOBAL POLAR, a once-small grassroots movement to restore the world to its form during the Ice Age, has finally finished their calculations. They are now prepared to alter the world's climate so greatly they will unleash a neverending Ice Age. Snow, snow everywhere. The MUDS INSTITUTE has no clue the SNOWS, as they are usually called by the few who know of them, exist, much less are ready to deploy their global coup plot. The SANDS have a faint idea there is another group out there. They practice their party routine, for when they celebrate the successful domination of the world's precipitation patterns. A fat, bulky character sits at the head of the group, smiling toothily to himself. Finally, his plans for an everlasting Ice Age will be recognized. They should all be sorry they ever doubted him. Now-Defunct Universal Studios, Hollywood, 2025 Hollywood, and indeed most of California, lies in shambles. After the MUDS INSTITUTE bombed the whole area to remove the SANDS task force known as the Really Bad Artists, the state never recovered. Buildings crumble, curtains are tattered and frayed, and the only movies produced are those by the MUDS INSTITUTE FOR VISUAL ARTISTRY, a small offshoot of the MUDS meant to encourage propaganda. This is unacceptable. The multitudes of once-wealthy movie stars, actors, musicians, and other con artists who get millions for not doing anything significant to society are sick and tired of being neglected. Their home is now a wasteland. They don't want to join up with anyone else. No, they intend to go it alone. The former STARS of Hollywood have enlisted notable members from across the galaxy. The STRIKING TERROR AGAINST REBELS & SANDS alliance of butthurt, angry, semi-talented individuals has prepared their scheme. They have perfected their plots and played many games of Diplomacy to ensure their tactics are sound. It is time for them to rise up. Civil War Cemetary, Backroad of Virginia, 2025 A league of deceased individuals sits around a large, flat gravestone, spreading their ratty paper plans out. They appear to be plotting to turn the whole world into zombies. They are the FORMERLY DECEASED. They are ready to show the world you can still be great even if you've lost an arm and 3 toes to decay and you've been 6 feet under for as many years. The FORMERLY DEAD have no real plans besides bite everyone to infect them. And since they died once, it's hard to kill them again. Former SANDS EMPORIUM, MUDS HQ, 2025 A strange gift arrives for the leaders of the MUDS INSTITUTE. They eagerly await their surprise to hatch... Soon, it begins to crack. Out emerges the one and only....... LADY GAGA! She begins singing her newest hit... SANDS ON THE RIGHT TRACK BABY THEY WERE BORN TO RU-HULE THEY WERE BORN TO RULE THEY WERE BORN TO RULE SANDS ON THE RIGHT TRACK BABY From the gateway to the Former SANDS EMPORIUM, now simply a MUDS party ground, in storms floods of really bad artists. Justin Bieber grinds against Bruno Mars while Taylor Swift spreads her legs for Kanye West. Nicki Minaj and Kesha swing bottles of jack around, bashing the MUDS INSTITUTE guards. Soon, the more elite, trained SANDS ACQUISITIONS, INC. fighting forces emerge on the scene. War has been declared. The MUDS INSTITUTE has truly underestimated the size of the SANDS ACQUISITIONS, INC.'s network of loyal assassins. As SANDS takes an early lead, the MUDS retreat, reduced to their former role as MUDS REBELS fighting a seemingly useless cause. Soon, three more groups emerge on the scene, eager to time their entries into the picture when the MUDS and SANDS forces are weak. The SNOWS, STARS and DEADS break out of their hiding places, huge masses of supporters behind them. It seems almost everyone has picked a side. As the dust clears from the first chaotic cluster<snip> fight, two bodies remain, unable to get up. One, a blue and white figure, lying still, luster gone. (that's a shiny Latios because my shiny Latios' name was billy and he was hacked and had like 60 ribbons so I got into the gd Ribbon Club; he was my favorite shiny) It would appear Latios had finally run out of lives. Soon, however, you see his sister dart up and quickly teleport his body away, perhaps to revive him once again... Another body is off to the side, immobile: Eventually, everyone leaves, and the body slowly starts to decay. PLEASE NOTE THAT PICS ARE NOT INCLUDED IN PMS WHEN THEY ARE SENT, ONLY UPON DEATH. IF YOU ADD A PIC TO YOUR PM TO FAKE CLAIM.. YOU'LL PROB LOOK STUPID. The Rules Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide 1. While you are alive, feel free to talk about the game. Once you have died, you may not discuss the game with anyone not allied with you. You may not share information you gained after death no matter what. 2. The game will begin on Night 0. There will be no kills on Night 0. During Night 0, no one may paste their Role PM. Role PMs may be freely distributed starting from Day 1. PM Yeti and/or Quagsires for help in faking a role PM. Which you probably should do. 3. Do not take grammatical errors in PMs as proof of faking. We are human and can make mistakes. We have tried to keep all text relatively the same, but there may be discrepancies. If you believe there are, PM us and we will correct them. Do NOT correct them yourself. 4. You may paste things the hosts tell you, but do not anticipate everything we tell you is true. You can paste fake logs; PM Yeti or Quagsires for help faking a log. Screenshots are allowed, but these are no more trustworthy than someone saying something. 5. Each Day period will last 48 hours at the start, then be cut to 24 as people die. There is no shortened time for majority because you have Day Actions. There are no grace periods, because what's going on in the thread is not all that is needed for the day to end.. If all Day Actions are received before Deadline and there is a majority, the Day will end. There is no announcement of what majority is or when its reached. Don't ask. 6. We will allow stealth lynching if you can successfully pull this off. Good luck. You'll need it. 7. During the day you must bold your vote and post flavor <User>. To change your vote, you must edit your original post with your new vote. You may choose to No Lynch during the day as well, and any votes towards a dead user (if he or she has been godkilled) will count as No Lynch. If you wish to vote for nothing at that time but have already voted, unbold your original vote and state something along the lines that it is retracted. Any ties will result in a no lynch. 8. Each Night period will last 48 hours or until all PMs have been received. This will be cut to 24 as people die. 9. Feel free to target dead users with your abilities. We cannot say if anything will come of this, and it is very likely nothing will happen. However, there are exceptions. 10. Priorities have been set beforehand. You don't get to know them until the game ends. 11. There are items in this game. To give your item away, include "Give ITEM to USER" in the body of your PM. Items can be stolen and there is no limit to the number of items that may be held, besides common sense. 12. Upon the death of an individual holding an item, the item will be put into the SANDS ARENA (a junkyard). You may forego your Day Action to send "DX - Retrieve ITEM". Any items with two or more users attempting to retrieve them will not be removed. 13. Inform Yeti and Quagsires of all channels, spreadsheets, etc. you make for this game. Give us access: ask for our emails, our registered IRC nicks are Yeti and Quagsires. 14. IRC will be of great assistance to you in this game and other users may be very annoyed if you don't have it. It's not that hard to gain access to: you never have to pay to use mIRC if you hit Continue twice, Mibbit is free, etc. 15. Send all PMs to Yeti and Quagsires so we can both update. If you are choosing to idle, please PM "NX/DX - Idling" so we know you are active. 16. Be active or get out. You will almost assuredly lose this game if you are not active and anyone who could rely on you will be hampered by your inactivity. We will send a warning PM if you do not send a PM a night/day. After that, we will sub you out. We will NOT postpone deadlines if you do not meet them unless you ask us to give you an extra hour to discuss/coordinate. We WILL ask for subs on anyone who signed up and didn't get in. 17. If a role PM and the rules clash in something, the role PM takes precedence. 18. We are your hosts and we will be writing the Postgame, so please talk to us about your thoughts on the game. While we cannot confirm or deny any suspicions you may have, we would love to hear them. We would also like reasons for your actions if possible. 19. You will be given all factions that you need to defeat for victory, but others may need you dead and you not be told. Thus, your faction winning might make other factions lose. 20. If you post in the thread when silenced or kidnapped, break a posting restriction, get on IRC when frozen, or fail to vote for the person you were persuaded to vote for, you will be godkilled. We will be making it very clear what you can and cannot do (Spiffy), should one of these actions be directed your way, so you will have no excuse for not following the guidelines. 21. The official IRC channel will be #SANDS so please join. 22. If you have a non-information role, you will not receive a result unless it fails. If you think you should have received a result PM but did not, you should contact the host that performed the last update, or the other one if they appear to be free to review your case. 23. We will admit there are 5 factions in this game. Whether or not neutrals exist or whether we're telling the truth here can be directed to http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~ssanty/cgi-bin/eightball.cgi. We do not take responsibility or necessarily agree with the results of the website. 24. You have a Night Action and a Day Action. The only way to kill during the day is a lynch, and Night Actions affect only Night Actions, etc. 25. There is a spoon. This is reality, Neo. SPECIAL TO THIS GAME: 26. Your factions are divided, with each faction having similar roles in each group. The makeup of each faction's groups is 2-2-1. 27. Some groups of 2 may not have an inspector. In these cases, one person in that group may PM Yeti and Quagsires once per night with the message, "Night x- Is< user> a <Faction name>, where faction name is the name of your faction. This power is relinquished upon the uniting of a faction in rule 28. 28. A faction may become truly united when any groups have ALL of their living members PM Yeti and Quagsires with the subject and message, "Night X- Uniting <User1> <User2> <User3> <User4> <User5> as the <Faction Name>, and they will be united. Once a faction is completely united, they will gain the ability to kill. We will comment to you privately whether this succeeds or fails. Due to how this is set up, you may also unite with fragments of your faction before uniting as a whole. In those cases, you will omit <User5> or <User4> if necessary. 29. A faction which is fully united may send a single member on the correct nights to kill, which will be given to you as soon as a faction is fully united. That one person may vary or stay the same. depending on whether you think they'll be hooked or not. 30. We're encouraging fakeclaiming with these rules. Take advantage of this. and ask us for help, and we will provide what we can, provided we're not writing any PMs or updates 31. You can NEVER send in a teammates' actions unless we talk to them before the night begins and they have a good excuse (ie away from computer) 32. Why not have 32 rules? 33. Because we have 34. 34. If all living members of two united factions during any day or night send in a PM in addition to their actions entitled, NX- Ally with the <Faction>, their win conditions will become mutually exclusive to <faction> unless they already are. In addition, if a faction does this to any other, they may not target that faction with anything except safeguards and bodyguards, and all votes for that faction do not count. However, while a faction will be told if this succeeds, they will not know if the other faction did the same. Ergo, you may set yourself up so that you cannot target a faction but they can target you freely. This may only be done once per game by each faction.

Many sides fight in this global conquest. The plan for victory is solid from each faction (minus the rather clueless DEADS). SANDS ACQUISITIONS, INC. has risen from the ashes to beat down the MUDS REBELS once and for all. New faces have added themselves to the fray. SNOWS GLOBAL POLAR are attempting to start another Ice Age and the STRIKING TERROR AGAINST REBELS & SANDS have come to get back onto the covers of magazines again, while the FORMERLY DECEASED just want brains. The question is, who will YOU fight for? ROLE PMS GOING OUT, DEADLINE WILL BE 48 HOURS FROM WHEN ALL PMS ARE OUT. NO SHARING PMS UNTIL RULES SAY SO. GOGOGO. ROLE PMS ARE OUT. YOU HAVE 48 HOURS. NIGHT ZERO ENDS AT 4:00 PM PST 3/18/11. Both of us will send PMs, who sent you a PM means nothing. Both of us need your action PMs: PMs sent to one mean nothing. Alternatively you can tell us on IRC/on your spread/in your channel to save my gd inbox. Also we both wrote PMs, I wrote my example, Quag wrote his. If you notice inconsistencies it means nothing: one of us wrote your PM, the other wrote the one you're looking at. We both wrote PMs for all factions. Do not use who you think wrote the PM as a basis to judge.
