Thy mercy, my God, is the theme of my song, the joy of my heart and the boast of my tongue. Thy free grace alone, from the first to the last, has won my affection and bound my soul fast.

May I ask how this works?

You write roles. You send them to dejo and me. The three of us talk about them and settle on the details. Then we build a game out of them and you start voting each other.

If you can think of a role, you can submit it. I don't believe mods will publicly approve or deny any possibility that aren't already precluded in the opening post.

What Ape said. If you can think of a role that fits the rules in the opening post, you can totally do it!

Question, since everyone can submit more than one entree, is one of there entrees going to get picked and the rest get discarded? Or does each entry get the same probability of happening as everyone else's idea?

With Trigun being this lock consensus good read for so many people, I find it really bizarre that she's alive. There's a threshold where if she's still alive she should probably be murdalated.

My understanding is that if you submit six roles, anywhere from zero to six of them could actually end up in the game. Twomil and dejo will be selecting the roles based on how they'd fit together into a good game.

Yeah, that's what it looks like. From the first game in the series:
twomillionbucks, in Write Somebody Else's Role I wrote:
Vovix wrote:
I'm sad because none of my roles were included

Don't take it personally. You weren't the only one.

Player - submitted roles included
dekal - 2
disp - 2
gdapkus - 1
grim - 0
jage - 1
kristie - 0
mel - 1
Pete - 0
super - 1
Taka - 1
Tiwaz - 3
violintides - 1
vovix - 0

I couldn't be any respecter of who submitted what roles if I had any hope of balancing this.

Yep, that's right.

My vacation ends today, so I'll get to work on this more soon.

Sorry, I didn't notice the part where we submit the roles when we sign up. Is it too late for that?

It is not too late. I will be sending out a reminder later to those who have not submitted.

I think I've only seen roles from less than half of the roster so far. We do need them somewhat soon, but you're still good.

I will also be adding anything I have that you don't to the Google doc soonish. I got a fair number of emails on vacation, or so it felt.

I sent a GM but haven't heard back. I can't play from Thursday-Monday with the new dates for the game. Should I drop out? Should I prepare a replacement ahead of time? I really wanted to play, but I've out of town for that stretch and won't be playing WW during that time at all.

I wasn't asking you. I was asking the mods!

I saw your geekmail, but I don't know the answer, as I don't know when Twomil expects the game to actually start.

I don't know either! I was thinking of trying to start on Monday, but we could also do the Monday after that...

There's also the issue that a bunch of people still haven't sent roles, so...
