    Finishing up the game design now, should have everything done by midnight EST, then I’ll start sending out PMs.

    I am planning to update the first post of the thread with some general info/rules, as well as links to the start-of-day posts as the game progresses. Stay tuned!

    Just FYI, I don’t have any co-moderators, and I am only human. I will try my best to follow the thread closely and in a timely manner, but there’s always the chance that life will intervene and delay me. I’ll be counting on you all to follow the rules as best you can if and until I need to step in and lay down the law.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    I've updated the first post!

    Please take a look, especially at the rules/expectations. And let me know either here or via PM if you have any questions/comments/concerns. Thanks!

    I’ve heard back from everyone! Expect an introduction and a start-of-day post around Noon EST.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    INTRODUCTION

    ~~~~~~

    It’s been about a month since you moved into your new apartment on Moonlight Alley.

    Last year was rough. Leases were on the rise throughout the city, but wages remained flat. When you missed a month’s rent on your last place, you were summarily evicted. Forced to bounce around from one friend’s couch to another. As one month of slumming it turned into two, then three, you’d begun to worry that you’d have to leave the city for good.

    But then, one day, you found it. Inexplicably, a dilapidated old building on Moonlight Alley had been renovated, seemingly overnight. A sign was posted on the front door.

    “TENANTS WANTED,” it read. “Eight fully furnished units available. Rent negotiable. No credit or background check required.”

    It seemed almost too good to be true. Maybe it was. But you were in no position to be picky. You walked in, met the landlord, Kirby, quickly toured one of the available units (it was lovely), and within minutes walked back out again. In your hand was a signed lease.

    “First month’s free,” Kirby had said, grinning widely. “We can talk about the next months when we get there. The only thing I ask is that you do me a favor. You seem like a trustworthy type, but I’m not so sure about the other new tenants. Keep an eye on them for me, will you?”

    Grateful to finally have a bed to lay in, you moved in immediately. Some of your friends seemed concerned; Moonlight Alley was in a… gritty section of the city. The local news always seemed to have a new story from those parts. A burglary here, a murder there. Shady dealings. Riots. Gangs. Psychopaths.

    But you were unperturbed. The other tenants seemed friendly enough, quiet, and polite. And the apartment really was lovely. Weeks passed uneventfully as you settled into your new digs.

    Then, one morning, on your way out of the building, you find the front door locked. You try your keys, but none of them seem to fit. You throw your weight against the door, but it doesn’t budge. Turning around, you see Kirby with a deadly serious look on his face.

    “You’ve been keeping an eye on them, right?” he asks. “I have it on good authority that there are criminals in the building, but you haven’t come to me with any information, yet. Are you hiding something?”

    He laughs.

    “Well, it doesn’t matter anyway. You’re not getting out of here until we figure all of this out.”

    Unlocking a door you hadn’t noticed before, Kirby leads you down into the basement of the building where the seven other tenants are already sitting, nervously waiting. Suspicious eyes gaze at you from every corner of the room...

    ~~~~~~

    DAY ONE - BEGIN

    Eight players are alive, five votes are required to lynch.

    48 hours remain.

    Nice spooky environment we got here. :excited:

    I like self insert write ups like these, I mean I feel I was the last person to enter the basement, since all seven of you were already there. But, you all would insert yourselves similarly, so, already it's like breaking causality. Who entered when, what caused what? It's like defying physics...

    Anyway, just checking in for now, first day is more about getting to know each other and speculations, so, hopefully we will get that sorted out sooner rather than later.. .

    Yeah, that's a cute little writeup.

    Hello there, fellow psychopaths. Happy to make your aquaintance.

    Oh on, no editing is my worst nightmare.

    Now this is just comical.

    How original is it to still have this in my signature 5 years later?

    So I don't know about you, but Kirby here told me he didn't trust any of you. But he's also the landlord and has control over the virtually non-existent renter's policy. I mean, my shower doesn't go above lukewarm and I've asked him multiple times to have it fixed, and nothing! Really feels like a scam if you ask me.

    So here's what I propose: we take matters into our own hands. Kirby's locked himself in here with us, and we outnumber him. He take that key from him, force him to sign a contract shifting management over to joint ownership. Kirby can still profit off rent like a parasite but we'll have a more direct say in the management and upkeep of these apartments. Sound good?

    Here to check in as well, fabulous write up Kirby!

    Question for everybody: Does your coffee maker that came with the apartment growl every so often? Asking for a friend.

    Funny you should say that, he told me the same thing. I wouldn't mind a co-op, but I want to see what everyone else says.

    Another question, is it normal for there to be just a crude picture of plumbing under the kitchen sink instead of actual plumbing?

    Wait...your apartment came with a coffee maker? That two-bit weasel told me I had to buy my own! Bad pluming and cold showers are one thing, but messing with one's ability to produce coffee is crossing a line. I'm starting to see the appeal of joint ownership...

    We can talk while I make us some margaritas, Sky. How are you enjoying the new living conditions?

    A co-op is fine, but I'm not sure I'm ready to be responsible for an apartment building.

    Alright, roughly 24 hours left so time to be a bit more aggressive.

    Okay, hi! Sorry for the late arrival. Yesterday was not the cat's pajamas.

    Also, did anyone else's rent go up last quarter? Just me?
