Game over!(maybe?)

The latest game of demonic evolution is now over with Alvaro Akir just barely squeaking out a win thanks to the help of the oracle granting double dominance points for the turn!

Also, in case anyone is wondering what was going on in the mountains, there was a lot of experiment actions going on to transfer and consolidate dominance points. Which allowed for some large swings for those people in that area(though no, the oracle bonus doesn’t apply to anyone giving you dominance points, only if you win them).

Edit: Oops, just after I finished the turn, I realized I may have made a mistake on something so it might not be over yet. I am adjusting it now!

Edited, everything explained:

I refactored the turn, as Jamie wasn’t actually enslaved. Which means Alvaro only had 22 dominance points instead of 26(needs 25 to win) needed to win, however the rules says the game will end once a person reaches 25 dominance points, and technically all actions take place at the same time. Originally there was some conflicts as everything happening at once gives a bit weird results at times so I rolled to see which actions would occur in which order, and it played out with a clear win for Alvaro.

However, without Jamie being enslaved there was still a possible way to resolve the turn in which Alvaro still could win. That is if the game ends when someone goes over 25, even if they then fall back blow it. The rules are not clear for that, so I rolled randomly to determine if the game would end in that scenario, the dice came up saying that it would.

I then made some random rolls to determine, if the correct sequences of event would happen in the order needed to allow Alvaro to temporarily go over 25, and the random results worked out in his favor. Altogether, I ended up making 4 or 5 random rolls(with basically a 50/50 chance each time) and they all came up in his favor. So while I kind of feel a bit bad about making the ending the result of random rolls, there was a scenario in which the events could be resolved for him to win, and it seemed like the fair way to resolve it when there was no clear rules, was to make a random roll.

I am thinking for next game, I might add a new stat for ‘speed’ or something to better determine what actions occur in what order in a round. So there is no grey area on this topic.

Coincidentally, with all this said, Alvaro temporary jump over 25 to trigger the game to end, also causes him to lose a massive amount of dominance points, as it assumes that the very last thing to happen was for him to be enslaved by Jamie(so instead of taking the dp loss on his lowest score, he took it from his highest score). So the end result is that he only has 15 dominance points instead of the 22 I mentioned above. Which means he didn’t actually win, he tied with Kharis.

Round updated!

New round is up. Sorry for it being a bit late, but I had so many distractions today. I really wanted to get the turn up on Thursday but I ended up holding off to give people a bit extra time to get their turns in since it seemed like a lot more than normal didn’t turn in a turn, and people tend to be late at times. A few people did turn in their turns late but I don’t think it was worth waiting as it wasn’t that many.

Turn

Will have the turn up again on Friday. A lot of complex stuff to do this turn, plus there is still some people turning their turns in pretty late. Also, for some reason I was feeling really tired today, so it was hard to keep up motivation.

Turn is up!

The turn is up now and I found out how to make the newest turn stay at the top, I will do that from now on since there is many many links for the game.

For some reason while updating the location list all the apostrophe in faction’s names and stuff turned into f’s. I deleted them all and fixed it but then when I updated the new location list a bunch of had strange boxes in them. I am guessing a box and an f equals an apostrophe in some weird code conversion going between notepad and the site. Not sure why that happened but if you see any weird boxes or an f in a weird place, that is why. Doesn’t effect the game, just something weird that happened hehe.

Update: Everyone healed 5 health due to the healing crystal at the hospital.

Slight delay

Don’t think I will have the turn done tonight. Giving an extra day didn’t help much, since a bunch of people still turned in their turns late. We will keep the deadlines on Tuesday though, so even with the slight delay, everyone will still have the same amount of time to do their turns, we just shifted it a day.

Though it isn’t entirely the late people’s fault. I also just got a new computer yesterday, so I may have taken a slighter longer than normal break while doing the turn to play some games. Should be able to get the turn up some time in the afternoon(pst).

Turn update!

Emails out and the turn is up. Also, I am going to extend the deadlines to Tuesdays from now on. People turn in stuff late all the time, so I usually end up not even doing much on Tuesday, because it is a pain if I have to redo stuff for people turning things in late. So you will have all of Tuesday to get things in. Now please don’t be sending me things on Wednesday or even Thursday, that is way too late!

Updated: Oops I forgot the mansion mutations. Everyone currently at the mansion gained : Fins(+2 defense in water, -1 defense out of water).

Another update: I forgot the nurses giving the anti taint vaccine! They will be visiting all locations they have not visited yet, this turn.

Turn updated!

Turn results for demonic evolution are out! Please remember to check your status on the location list, since people being in the right places are important. Also people’s dominance points are now listed on it as well.

Minor update on the turn regarding the nurses.

Turn update

New round is up and emails out. Also, starting next round everyone’s dominance points will be revealed to all players. This is because people have gotten over 10 dominance points, but I want to give people one round to prepare them self since they may end up targets.

Update: Teddy isn’t in the demon world, since he died he came back as a ghost in the mansion!
Update again: Sandy turn was adjusted slight and she is now at the hospital.

Turn out!

The turn results are posted, and my email is finally working again as well. As I thought the weird errors I was getting must have been connected to the email, since the email got fixed and the errors went away at the same time. It seems some of the emails got lost, but that shouldn’t effect anything. Except in the rare case of someone who turned in the turn but did it without their name and then also didn’t send me an email when I asked them to resend it. Which I am not sure if that applies to anyone.

Anyway, we are back on schedule now!
