Your tribe may submit one vote unanimously by Friday 5pm, for one tribe.
If your tribe does not submit a unanimous vote by the deadline, your tribe will cast a self vote.
The tribe with the highest votes, in accordance with standard Survivor voting rules with revotes as necessary, will be eliminated from the game.
You may speak to members of your own tribe in DMs. You may speak in any channel that you have access to in the server, including the tribe 1-1 chats I've created for you. You may not speak to members of other tribes in DMs.
In Challenge 1, Civil Rights was eliminated. Players on that tribe have been sent to modified redemption island.
Tour De France
We have designed a simulation of bike racing strategy. Though we will only be looking at the fastest individuals, tribal strategy around energy management and drafting will be crucial in helping one or two of your tribemates to achieve the fastest possible time.
This challenge has been modified from the last time it was run. For convenience, I have underlined all changes.
A tick lasts 10 minutes. The gamestate updates each tick publicly.
The racecourse is 300 units long. A player who has travelled a distance longer than 300 units is considered to have passed the finish line.
Each player begins with 3 pedal usages. Pedaling expends a pedal usage. Each player may pedal up to twice each tick, and the upper bound on the number of pedal usages stored is 15.
There are three lanes, which players can switch freely between.
Players "draft" when, after locations update, they are exactly one unit of distance behind someone else in the same lane. If a player is drafting, then they gain one pedal usage before locations update.
Players advance 1 unit each tick naturally, 2 if they are drafting. If players start their turn on squares 151-250, then they will advance one additional unit, before pedaling is calculated. If players use 1 pedal that tick, then there is a 2x multiplier on their distance travelled. If they use 2 pedals that tick (which is the maximum), then there is a 5x multiplier on their distance travelled.
The first two people from different tribes to cross the finish line will win immunity for their tribes. The other six tribes will attend tribal council. In the event of a tie, the first tribe with two players crossing the finish line will win, followed by three, etc.
Bot commands (must be used in your confessional):
!pedalnow - expends a pedal usage to increase your distance travelled that tick. This action may not be reversed. You can pedal up to a maximum of two times each tick.
!checkstatus - returns your current distance, pedal usages that tick, pedal usages remaining, lane, and whether or not you are drafting
!lane1 - changes your lane to lane 1
!lane2 - changes your lane to lane 2
!lane3 - changes your lane to lane 3
We will update #tour-de-france every tick with a list of players with their distance travelled, pedal usages remaining, and lane.
In the last series of tribal councils, Orangesoda, Ramzi, Moeboo, Santizo, DragonitePlayz and Blurb were voted out. They will join redemption island.
Great Smogon Bake-Off
This is an individual immunity challenge. All tribes will attend tribal council at the conclusion of this challenge. One person from each tribe will win this challenge: that person will gain individual immunity and cannot be voted.
Make a cake, best cake wins. We will make a google doc in your tribe channel: add pictures of your cake to that doc, and in your confessionals tell us which cake is yours. Ensure your cake is void of personally identifying characteristics.
I will judge your cake based on its aesthetics. Flavor and edibility will not be important to me. I'm not looking for funny photoshops: I'm looking for pictures of something that you made in real life that looks like a tasty cake.
Feel free to ping me if you have questions, as I won't be keeping up with the server otherwise. Cakes will be judged tomorrow at 5pm PST. If you don't feel comfortable with us posting these in the thread, let us know.
At the last tribal council, Sid, Lemoncello, Dyno, Jackie, SuperSpark8, Aeser, Sunder, and Zephyri were voted out. They join redemption island.
Puzzles are open. Whenever you are ready, you may submit a list of solutions by pinging the hosts. The hosts will then tell you whether your solutions are correct or not. You may re-submit for puzzles which were previously answered incorrectly.
Puzzles are one- or two-steps only. There is no unscrambling. If you have any doubt as to whether you have the right answer, then you don't have the right answer.
The deadline for this challenge will be tomorrow at 5pm PST. If there exists any puzzles at tomorrow 9am where the solution has not been found by any tribe, then a weak clue will be released for those puzzles.
The 3 tribes who get the most puzzles correct will win Tribal Immunity. The other 6 tribes will be sent to Tribal Council.
Tribes will be ranked by:
# of puzzles correct at the end of the challenge. If two tribes are tied, then...
# of puzzles correct in first submission. If two tribes are tied, then...
Time of first submission (earlier wins)
On redemption island, memomiguel returned to the game - eliminating heuryalone, the quagsire king, mysterysimmer, frodododo, and gastlies.
At the latest set of tribal councils, cardinal, combee, tai, outlaw, sky, trade, and moeboo were voted out.
The remaining castaways have survived long enough to make it to a tribe swap!
You have not only survived the culling of jobs in your old department, but you’ve also been rewarded with an election to parliament. You, along with eight others, represent your home planet. Your people are counting on you to deliver results when you walk into your position in the Starhome skybreaker. This is cutthroat politics, and it’s time to kill or be killed.
The home planets that you come from were named during their founding for the role that they serve in the ecosystem of the outer planets. They are as follows:
The elite troops of Big Stick patrol not only their own planet, but also Starhome and all of the other colonies. Their expertise in combat and heavy weaponry is applied judiciously with a strict code of chivalry, honor, and glorification of war.
The Big Stick tribe members are:
Datum houses the massive supercomputers that enable humanity’s reliance on artificial intelligence. Requests for calculation are made to the planet, and the scientists populating it provide answers from their quiet, meritocratic, and unpolitical ivory towers.
The Datum tribe members are:
Engineers on the planet Shortwave, the smallest of all the colonies, govern a massive network of satellites and radar dishes that enable instant communication, data retrieval, and location services.
The Shortwave tribe members are:
Localizer produces the finest pilots humanity has to offer. Pilots are expected to have superhuman reaction speed, strong mathematical ability, and unflappable composure. They are trusted with the finest pieces of engineering that humanity has ever created.
The Localizer tribe members are:
Ironbound is the industrial hub for all of humanity. Underneath the planet’s carbon filled atmosphere and red surface, there’s an abundance of minerals and energy sources. These resources power the construction of everything under the sun.
The Ironbound tribe members are:
Price is a commerce hub, with a collection of stock exchanges, banks, and insurance companies. Spend too much time on the planet, and you may just walk away richer than your wildest dreams.
The Price tribe members are:
Welcome to your new tribes! You've done well to get here--by the count of eliminations, we're nearly halfway through the game already (though the pace of eliminations will diminish substantially as time goes by). Please remember to only talk with people on your current tribe--communications with people from your previous tribe should cease immediately, as should alliance chats that include people from other tribes.
Within your tribe, you must elect a diplomat. We prefer this election to be unanimous, though if there are conflicts we will RNG between the volunteers. You have until tomorrow 5pm PST to do this.
At 5pm PST tomorrow, your diplomats will temporarily be removed from your tribe. You may not converse with your diplomats at this time. The six diplomats will attend a summit Tribal Council, where they will vote out one diplomat within them, according to standard TC rules. The diplomat voted out will not be eliminated, though his or her tribe will suffer a penalty.
While your diplomats are attending the summit Tribal Council, the 8 remaining players from each tribe will also attend Tribal Council to vote someone out. However, the votes from these tribal councils will only be read if the diplomat from your tribe was voted out. Otherwise, the votes will be discarded.
The tribe whose diplomat is voted out will suffer the following penalties:
- Their tribe's votes will be read, and one person from their tribe will be voted out.
- Their tribe will not be able to compete for Tribal Immunity in the following two challenges, and instead will immediately be sent to Tribal Council.
--The diplomat of the losing tribe will have immunity at their first Tribal Council following the summit.
--There will be a competition for individual immunity at the second Tribal Council within this tribe.
You have 24 hours to strategize and to elect a diplomat.
Submit the best rap. You have 23 hours. The three tribes with the best rap wins.
The lyrics of your rap must be totally original. The contents of the rap must relate to Pokemon, ORGs, or a specific ORG. The rap must have a beat. Your rap will be judged holistically on its musicality: three components of musicality include flow, content, and delivery.
You must use, for your rap, a text-to-speech converter. The rap must not be performed primarily by humans, though if your tribe wants to add a bit of a human touch, feel free.
