    For a long time, Disney enjoyed what was essentially a monopoly on the world’s animated films, even keeping that monopoly at the emergence of a potential rival, Pixar, who was in fact owned by Disney themselves. However, a new threat has come about, Dreamworks. Instead of combating this in its early stages, Disney let it grow to a large size. Now, with Pixar revolting suddenly, some of Disney’s best have taken up arms agains Pixar and Dreamworks. All three of these factions are equal in size, and each has a vendetta against the others. There are no less than six and no more than eight in each faction.

    tl;dr: There are three factions, Dreamworks, Disney, and Pixar. There may or may not be a hidden mafia faction(s). There is an undisclosed number of neutrals that is no less than one and no greater than seven.

    Turns out polelover44 decided to start things off with a bang. He was Humorous Phases of Funny Faces
    [​IMG]

    Rules:
    1. Whilst you are alive you can talk to anyone about the game. Once you are dead you cannot talk to anyone about the game.

    2. The game will begin on Cycle 0. There will be no kills and no lynch on Cycle 0. During Cycle 0, no one may paste the entirety of his or her role PM. Role PMs may be freely distributed starting from Cycle 1. PM polelover44 or LightWolf for help in faking a role PM.

    3. Do not take grammatical errors in PMs as proof of faking. We are human and can make mistakes.

    4. You can paste things told to you by the hosts. You may fake logs. Do not take pasting of a host conversation as definite proof, these can be faked. If you want to fake a log, feel free to PM polelover44 or LightWolf for assistance. Impersonation of a host or another user however, is banned at all points. Please do not attempt to impersonate in any way. You also may not screenshot anything related to the game.

    5. Each Cycle period will last 48 hours or until a majority is reached AND all necessary Action PMs are in. A grace period of two to three hours will be allowed in the latter case.

    5.1 First rule about majority, don’t ask about majority. Majority is not dependant on the number of players, but the number of votes, which you don’t know. So don’t ask when majority is gonna be, or how many votes until majority, and if you think it is majority do not tell me. We’d really rather it isn’t discussed at all.

    5.2 Fuck the rule against stealth lynches; that really only matters in a game with a single faction that controls the lynch, which this doesn't have

    6. When lynching you must bold your vote and use Any Word <User>. To change your vote, you must edit your original post with your new vote. You may choose to No Lynch as well, and any votes towards a dead user (if he or she has been godkilled) will not count. A tie in the vote will cause neither user to be lynched.

    7. You may target dead users with your abilities. We cannot promise that anything will happen.

    8. Priorities are set and will be kept secret. Don't even ask about them.

    9. There are no items in this game. We will not prevent you from claiming thief/scavenger, but we do not recommend that you do so.

    10. polelover44 and LightWolf MUST be informed of any IRC channels or spreadsheet/whatever else you create for this game.

    11. IRC is not compulsory, but you will find great use of it during the game! You can find polelover44 or LightWolf on #fluodome if you have any questions.

    11.1 You can also find me on #animation, the game’s official channel.

    12. If you have any questions about the game, you can find polelover44 or LightWolf on Smogon, ready to be contacted by PM.

    13. Send all PMs to polelover44 and LightWolf, and if you decide not to use an ability on a given cycle, don't forget to PM me "Cycle X - Idling" to make it much easier for us.

    13.1 If you have a kill, you do not have to PM me on the cycles during which this kill is not active.

    14. You HAVE to be active, if you are caught inactive you will be sent a warning PM. If you keep being inactive, you will be subbed out without hesitation, please don't make me do this. :(

    15. If a role PM and the rules clash in something, the role PM takes precedence.

    16. Please talk to us during the game, we get very lonely it will make for a better postgame! Please give reasons for your actions, this will also help.

    17. If you are willing to be a sub for the game in case you do not get selected, you may mention that in your signup post.

    18. If you post in the thread when silenced, break a posting restriction, or fail to vote for the person you were persuaded to vote for, you will be godkilled without hesitation.

    19. If you have a non-information role, you will not receive a result unless it fails. If you think you should have received a cycle result but did not, you should contact polelover44 or LightWolf.

    20. There is no Rule 20

    21. Inspection results are not necessarily entirely trustworthy

    22. Do not believe that anything is too unbelievable to be true!

    22.1 In a similar vein, do not use past games which one of us have hosted as a method for disproving a claim. We may not use the same/similar roles.

    23. This is an OPEN THEMED GAME. This means that there may be roles in this movie that are not related to the theme.

    I'd like to step up to lead Dreamworks. I'm the hooker, a role that usually takes a leadership position, and I'll show you my role PM once Cycle 0 is over. If you're allied with Dreamworks, please send me your ability and role name, and your full PM once it's Cycle 1.

    All Role PMs are out. It is now Cycle 0. Cycle 0 will end in 60 hours on Tuesday, February 22nd at 10:00 AM EST or when all action PMs are in. Killers need not send me PMs unless they have another action they wish to use. There is neither a kill nor a lynch this cycle.

    This game is gonna be superfun.

    I'd like to try my hand at moling another faction, but it hasn't worked so well for me ever since Overkill 2. Somehow I cannot hide who I am, though I try.

    #animation log (open)
    <Staraptor> In case you didn't already know, I want all Dreamworks to contact me
    <StevenSnype> since when?
    <Staraptor> I posted it in the thread
    <Staraptor> It was the second reply
    <StevenSnype> that's a little bit early to get a PM
    <StevenSnype> considering
    <StevenSnype> i got mine 40 minutes after you posted it
    <Athenodoros> I assumed you were joking when you posted that
    <Staraptor> I must have been one of the first people to get my role PM
    <Staraptor> If not the first
    <Staraptor> Hooker is the kind of role hosts would write PMs for early on in the creation process
    <StevenSnype> i remember when i was writing roles for SANDS, i wrote the PM for undisputed first
    <Staraptor> When I made LotF Mafia, I made the Destructive ability checker first
    <StevenSnype> was that the first PM you sent out?
    <Staraptor> Yes
    <Staraptor> And I made all the hooker PMs in that game right in a row, as PMs 4, 5, and 6.
    This is some evidence that I really am who I say I am. It's far from conclusive, but it's better than nothing.

    I organize my pms by team. That and we have no evidence that you even got your pm first. This is... really poor logic frankly.

    I'm the exact way. I don't have any particular logic for writing PMs.

    So once again, shit logic.

    Hello. I am here to unite and lead Disney to sweet victory. Any Disney (or anyone who is interested) may swap their alias with mine, and I will post my pm come day 1. Early communication is vital here so I am hoping for some of it. Now I realize there is no true reason for any Disney to contact me boldly, but think of it this way - this is a multifaction game with three balanced factions. If we actually start shit, it would only help us and be in our best intentions, plus it will set us ahead of other factions. I'm only trying to benefit our faction and I'm doing it at my own expense.

    edit: also if we have a tracker target me please so i don't get kidnapped or something
