b{The White Guardian sat in deep meditation, a frown on his face. As the universal embodiment of order for the multiverse, it was his duty to ward off chaos. And, for the past 45 billion years or so, he’d been doing just that.

But more recently, the things he had sensed could only be described as strange. Even a being of near-omniscience is stumped sometimes, and this was one of those times.

Evil was vanishing.

In was in his nature, he knew, (placed there by the higher powers of the universe) to be repulsed by evil, but he could never forget that it was necessary for the continued balance of so many universes, lest they dissolve into chaos. (His counterpart, the Black Guardian, had reminded him of the fact oh so many times)

But evil was disappearing. Many of the greatest evil beings from many universes were simply disappearing, without a trace.

Perhaps he should not be so worried. Evil was likely to go into hiding, and wait for an opportune moment to strike. But he alone could sense that these beings, forces of evil, servants of the dark lords, were vanishing to a place outside of time and space itself.

It wouldn’t have disturbed him as much, he admitted, if it wasn’t for the fact that once they had left a dimension with the concept of time, they were out of his realm. He had no way of controlling them.

And he could not forget what he had seen, that vision just nights ago, of the vanished evils sitting around a table somewhere outside of time.

He stirred within himself. This could no longer be a coincidence!

“They aren’t leaving… they are gathering. Gathering together for some new scheme.”

He steeled his will and let mind probe thousands of universes, feeling for many presences. Two could play at that game.

Re: Edge of Eternity- Game thread- N0- No posting yet
On a street in London, Hercule Periot stood waiting for a cab.

Jack sparrow drank rum and hummed to himself on the deck of the Black Pearl.

MacGyver sat in an apartment watching TV.

And then… in the twinkling of an eye, it vanished.

Across universes, though time, space, and dimensions, a signal went out 27 select hero suddenly saw everything go black. Felt their world turn upside down, felt their bodies torn through time and space.

Before there was even time to think, it was over and each found himself in a room, dark and filled with other confused individuals.

“Where am I?”

“Who are you?”

“Why is the rum gone?”

“I did not think-”

And with a crash, someone threw open a door in the side of a wall and everybody came sprawling out. After the obligatory minute or so taken to untangle themselves and get to their feet, everyone stood and stared strangely at each other. Weapons were held at the ready for the first sign of aggression.

“Children, my children, come this way!”

For the first time, everyone noticed where they were. They appeared to be standing a dessert, with a single door frame (with a door in it) slightly to their left, which they had apparently just come out of.

To the right there was a beach umbrella, with a folding table and a chair underneath it. On the table there was a bottle of white and a wineglass with ice and a lemon in it. There was nothing else but sand as far as the eye could see.

“Children…” there came again that deep, gentle, ghostlike voice. Slowly, from out of nowhere, there materialized on the chair an old man.

He was of average height, with a white beard and white hair. He wore a suit and tie, all white like his hair.

“Welcome, my friends,” he said. “You have been brought here for a most important occasion.”

“I am the White Guardian. I am the universal embodiment or order for the mutiverse. It is my duty to ensure that the forces of good and evil are balanced.”

Indiana Jones took a deep breath and said, “Ya’know, I never thought I’d meet the universal embodiment or whatever, but if I did, I wouldn’t expect him to look like a man in a white suit.”

“This is not my true form,” the Guardian replied. “I taken this form so that mortal eyes may behold me.”

“Whoa!” Cried Gilgamesh. “Who are you calling mortal?”

Ignoring this outburst, the Guardian continued, “I see confusion and wonder written on your faces. Allow me to explain. Each of you has been lifted from your own universe and brought here, to the Edge of Eternity. Do not worry; you have be brought here as friends, not enemies.”

Someone piped up, “And that was because…. Why?”

“Patience, friend,” the Guardian replied. “A grave threat has overtaken us: a group of villains has gathered together with the intent to rule the mutiverse.”
“Normally, I would deal with such a threat myself, but this is different. The higher powers have prohibited me to interfere. But two can play at a game, and if evil can gather together, so can good.”

“And that, my friends, is why you are here. The processes of bringing you from your home universes to here was far from perfect. Some of those who you think to be one of you are actually evils in disguise.”

“It is for a simple reason, then, that you have been called: to find the evils where they are among you, and banish them their home universes. I will provide you with information about each other, that you may yourselves.
(Mod note: Wikipedia) Study, know your own limits and strengths…” (and here the guardian’s voice be came raised) “Let us act!”

It is not night 0. Don’t post yet, but please check into your modchat. You may have further instructions there.

Link to rules thread: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/1467416#1467416


You can't use powers yet, unless you're special and I tell you you can.

Oh, and in case it isn't clear: You people with a "good" word next to your name win when you've killed all the wolves. You people with "evil" next to your name win when the wolves achieve parity. You guys with an "other" next to your name need to follow whatever instructions you got. (assuming there are, of course, some people like that.)

Re: Edge of Eternity- Game thread- N0- No posting yet
The Cassandra Automatic Vote Tally System

Your Moderator has enabled the Cassandra Automatic Vote Tally system
for this game. In order for it to function correctly, your votes will
need to be formatted correctly. The following rules will explain what
you will need to do:

Players
1. All votes must be bolded

2. The entire vote statement must be bolded and enclosed in bracekts: [vote jmilum]

3. Only one unvote and/or vote per post. You may have both an unvote
and a vote in the same post, but the unvote must come before the vote

4. You may [unvote all] instead of naming the current player
you are voting

5. If you [vote nightfall] your vote will be locked (voting
nightfall is allowed in the same post as a vote for a player, but it
must come after it, this does not violate Rule #3)

6. Vote tallies will be automatically posted to the game thread hourly
if the tally has changed. The Tally and Vote Logs (for each game day)
are also available on the Cassandra game page.

7. If your vote is not counted be sure to check the Vote Log page and
see if it was marked invalid and why.

8. Case does not matter and simple typos will not cause the vote to fail.

9. You may [vote no lynch] if your game allows it.

10. Quotes below the vote/unvote statement may cause the vote to be missed,
especially if they contain bolded sections.

11. Non voting players will be listed in the tallies. This will only be
correct if the Moderator notes which players have been killed (see below)


Moderators
1. The moderator will need to post [Dawn] when the day begins
(after the night results are posted) and [Dusk] when the lynch
deadline has passed and the day is over. Votes will not be counted
after [Dusk] has been posted. They will be registered again
after [Dawn] is next posted.

2. You may include a day number in the dawn and dusk post for
informational purposes, but it will not be used by the system.
Cassandra will increment an internal counter each time it sees
[Dawn] no matter what day is shown in a dawn post (i.e.
[Dawn 3] the three is allowed but ignored)

3. After dusk has been posted, the Moderator may go to the game page
on Cassandra to request a Final Tally to be posted before the normal
scan period has elapsed (i.e. Game Y gets scanned at 45 min. after the
hour, if it lynches at 7pm the moderator may request a tally to be
posted from the game page before 7:45pm. it will also be posted
regardless of whether or not it has been changed since the last
posting) - Do this by clicking on the 'Retrieve Final Lynch Time Vote' link.

4. You will need to note which players were killed via the lynch or at night by
either posting [killed jmilum] in the thread, or by going to the game
page and editing the player list. When posting in the thread, be sure to post
[dusk] before posting the lynch kill, and post [dawn] before
posting the night kill.
Example:
A. lynch time has passed so post [dusk]
B. goto the game page and select a final tally to be posted
C. check the final tally and post [killed melsana]
D. after the night deadline has passed post [dawn]
E. post the night kill with [killed kima]

Your Moderator has chosen to use the Longest Held Vote method for a tiebreaker - This is just for Cassandra system, and there may be a different tiebreaker specified by your Moderator in the ruleset.

Re: Edge of Eternity- Game thread- N0- No posting yet
The Guardian pointed in the distance, and from nowhere, a house barely large enough to see appeared on the horizon. Everything else suddenly vanished, and everyone felt themselves flying toward the house at high speed. They passed through the wall and found themselves in the living room.

“This is my house, or rather my dwelling place, formed so your eyes can see it. There are rooms for each of you down the hall,” the Guardian said. “You may return someone to his home universe by sending them through that door,” he pointed at one off to the side.

“Farewell, I go to consult with the higher powers. You must defeat this grave threat!”

And then he was gone.


[DAWN]

It is now day one.

The Guardian will cause those who receive the most votes to be returned to their home universes, never to return. (Usually)
Please vote for those you would seek to return to their home universes. The person who gets the most votes will be banished from the edge of eternity.

First Lynch is Tuesday (5/1/07) at 6:00 bgg.

First, we must observe, for my sensei taught me that you may tell who will win a duel before even the swords are drawn.

Dr. Jones begins surveying the situation, checking out all the rooms. He returns to the main room and looks thoughtfully at the door indicated by the Guardian. He rummages though his bag, pulls out a black grease pencil, and marks the door with a large 'X' in a circle.

"Just in case anyone needs to use the bathroom" he says with smirk.

Before the swords are drawn? HAH! That's a good one, rabbit.

It's only in the test of battle that the right can be told and the weak protected from evil.

Re: Edge of Eternity- Game thread- D1- let the chaos begin!
I am here and according to Cassandra a villager. But I am hardly vanilla and I think I'll enjoy my abilities. I plan on sticking it to evil this game.

I won't be on much today, but hope to check in a little bit later. I know there's no reason to panic, but just to preemptively ask, I'd prefer not being lynched and having a chance to make it home. I have a mishmash of abilities, but my best one is a one-time shot that's a decently powerful way to unearth the evil among us. Just need a little time to find the proper window of targets.

Also, since information is in the best interest in the village, even if sometimes manipulated a little by good, I will reveal that I am a mason with at least one person here who has already posted. However, I cannot be sure that they are on the same side as me. I can just chat with them.

Hopefully I haven't wallowed too much in indiscretion.

I'll start with a

Re: Edge of Eternity- Game thread- D1- let the chaos begin!
The tall willowy brunette stood silent, taking everything in. These people were certainly some of the most varied that she had ever seen in her long life. She had faced magics of varying degrees and had even fought the most evil god in her own parthenon to his death. Torak had been hell on earth and yet she and her uncles had prevailed with a little help, of course.

From what the White Guardian stated, she was looking at the same thing once again. She sighed, finding an empty chair, settling down, the white owl coming to rest on her shoulder.

"Well, my pretty, another fine mess to solve. I wish Father was here to help, but then again, he'd only mess it up, I'm certain."

Her hand came up to brush back the lock of snow white hair that marked her for what she was in her own existence.

"Greetings all ... I am Polgara, the Duchess of Erat of Sendaria.
