A comma is needed on next laws. Yeah, a comma.

I didn't consider Carcity's post, since it was invalid, for the most common rule-ban. So I went with the R ban.

Most common letter = A

And Carcity goes down! L and S are tied for most common in his post at 5 instances each. Now that I have posted, he is unable to edit and so is in violation of the second half of my letter-ban rule.

In addition, his post contains only 9 words, since "E" is not a word.

Sorry, mate; I gave you more than a day, but the game cannot wait forever.

~~~

This game is getting really old. If I win again, I'm going to quit.
I only counted to four S:s, and I considered the E as a word, anyway, I'll wait for the next round then, cheers, and I couldn't edit because of some minor (major now) internet problems.

I have no desire to continue this anyway. As much as this game is interesting I find myself unable to play it for the reason that thwarted my plans many times in the past: I lack the creativity for it. Posting silly things while trying to adhere to the rules is one thing, but trying to come up with interesting and challenging rules is, unfortunately, beyond my capability.

Should this game continue I will watch it closely and if you so wish will remain the rules master, even though it seems that Rarensu us doing a far better job at that.

Yeah... I could do the job, but I don't log on frequently enough to provide reliability. Plus I'm probably going to quit soon.

It's like Woock said. This game works better fast-paced with lots of players.

Yes, I had hoped it would get more attention, but sadly it didn't.  I too lacked the compulsion to play .  If somebody wants to create a new thread that might be a more interesting version of this, I would not object

I've been looking for a new old game to run and somehow I keep running into games that I apparently ran at some point even though I didn't remember it.

Anyway, I remember this being fun for a while so let's give it another try.

REMASTERED MASTERPOST


The Game is an evolving game that has some core rules, that gets added to by the participants.  Each post adds points to 'the game' and whoever 'wins' gets the points.  Here are the core rules (which can not be changed)

Each person gets to add 1 rule per post, and must wait until somebody else posts before posting again.  The rule cannot contradict a core rule, but if clever can override another non-core rule.  The rule can not be impossible to get around.  Other players MUST abide by any previous rules, however during a 'reset' (explained in a bit) only the core rules apply for the first post (after the reset).  When the rules become to much for a contestant they can post 'forfeit'.  Once all players but the one who posted the last rule have forfeited the game 'resets' to core rules only and begins again.  The player who posted the last rule gets the points. If a player doesn't post a new rule for 4 days straight (counting from his last rule) he is considered forfeit for the round

Though it is 'unpleasant' to overrule a rule it can be done. Example: Poster 'a' posts "Can not use the letter X".  The next player posts "Can use any letter".  Since they did not use the letter X in their post it successfully counters the previous rule.  But remember the object is to add more rules, not subtract rules.

The Rulemaster (me) can strike out a rule that is 'impossible' to get around.  IE - Somebody posts "Can not use any letters", I would strike that one out.  It is cumulative rules, and not any one rule, that should end the game.

Remember the longer the game goes on, the more points the winner scores.  

When posting a new rule, the poster does NOT have to abide by it until their NEXT post.  Only the rules already posted have to be obeyed.  

No foreign language maybe added to the rules, the posters MUST stick with English as per the CoC

No Person Specific Rules. (i.e. a rule must affect all the posters in the same way)

Since this thread is used for both rules and chatter there can be three types of posts:
1. Rule post - must contain a new rule and follow all the rules of the round.
2. Chatter post - must be written in a way that it is clear to be a chatter post and therefore has no effect on the game.
3. Combination post - a post that is divided into to parts: the first follows the rules and introduces a new one, the second is chatter. The two parts are separated by // .

Let's begin!

New rule: every post has to thank me for digging up this game.

Squee! Thank you Geny, appreciation for this game being revived is greater than the damage output of Behemoths in HoMM3's Stronghold! Also, the first word of every post must rhyme with the last word in that post!

My new rule is that the second word of any post must be identical to last word of the post before it. And now to follow the last two rules I shall Squee!

I *Squee* and thank you yet again Geny for bringing up this amazing game.
I wonder if HVII did not fail because the lack of Scorpicores? How was Inferno in HV? I heard there was a Vorpal Sword ability, was that like Mighty Gorgon Death Stare? Though honestly I am now tired to talk about the Inferno so new rule is that you may no longer mention any evil aligned factions or creatures.
Speaking of Vorpal, have any of you read the Goblins comic, there you can find this awesome Vorpal Kick'asso guy.

The guy above me made a new rule and convinced me to join in this game, of course I need to thank Geny first for this awesome game to be dug up again, I feel as happy as a gnoll in a fortress, squeeeee! Additionaly, the new rule will be that you have to cast a spell on the next person and he has to let everyone know that how the spell affected him/her. And I have not read such comic

'Example': *casts slow*

Next person: I am just talking implying.....all.....the...different....rules

That guy was contemplating a strong fight between Silver Pegasi and Titans from his Tower, his spot was so perfect he could hear a Pixie squee. I would like to thank Geny for digging up such gem and introduce the new rule that you have to mention your favorite hero in next posts, before I leave you to transform back into a bat.

That bat of Galaad whispered to me that for this games sake I'll have to thank geny for digging it up. As a new rule you'll have to say what time it is at your location. Although I'm fond of the green dragons that ain't native from the stronghold cause they are badass, I'll let you know that I train them not to breath poison but instead to squee! But now that I've joined HC I'm afraid of them getting just like Clancy the Ranger somewhat fat!

Thank you Geny for digging up this game.
I am not allowed to mention my favorite faction and creature because they are evil aligned.
Squee!
Markal.
It's 7:20 AM.
My new rule is that every time someone introduces a new rule he/she has to include the phrase "My new rule" in bold at the beginning of the sentence.
You shall comply.
