Betrayal Game #76: Inversions - Sign-ups and Discussion

Post by UncannyScott » 08 Jan 2016, 04:52

Good is evil, evil is good! The sky is the ground and the ground is the sky! Puppies meow and kittens bark! Chocolate tastes like vanilla and vanilla tastes like nothing! The world's gone crazy!

Okay at least that first one is true.

Welcome to X-Men: Inversions. You know, that event that changes characters from good to bad essentially, and vice versa, as their usual personality is pushed aside for favor of one that is the opposite and extreme? Sure it happened during that Axis event that was very divisive when it comes to liking it or hating it, but this time things are different. Increasingly bored with his running of the Hellfire Club, the luster and challenge has dulled, Quentin Quire decides he wants to have fun and goes about mucking with forces he shouldn't. With a little psychic tweaking here and there and help from a magician that knows some dark magic, a cloud has descended upon the X-Men and their new home of Limbo. When touched, this cloud changes everything about a person and inverts them. It was all meant as some harmless fun. Watch them bicker and fight for a bit, then turn it off and go about his day. Except, just like all things...these plans never go as planned.

With the X-Men seemingly stuck like this, things descend into chaos. Friends are now enemies. Lovers now loathe one another. Family members would be glad if their sibling would just vanish. So far they're just a bunch of rowdy teenagers full of hate and hormones and rage, but someone is changing the game. Someone is killing them one...by one...by one....problem is, everyone is a suspect. Question is, can they figure out who it is and deal with them before it's too late? Though this does pose another question, do they care enough to try and stop the killer? Let the fun begin!

Image

*****

So I can't recall what my original plan was when I pitched Inversions as the name of my game, and this just came to me and I just had to go with it. It's different, and I'm crossing my fingers that it works...so let's find out!

All X-Men characters are available to use for this, even those that might not be accounted for currently in Marvel. This is your chance to figure out where that missing character you love has ended up in this All-New All-Different world facing mutants. A lot could have happened in 8 months. You also get to play them against type, so that's a plus too.

Blind Voting: We'll be using the blind voting rule where you send your two votes each round to me in PM, or you can email them to me at Redmondscott.85@gmail.com. Just remember to let me know what your screen name here is in the email and mark it as Betrayal Game so I don't miss the email. Go ahead and accuse everyone and their mothers out in the open outside of your votes, because you're characters are like Professor Xavier, they're jerks now. Jerks do that sort of thing.

Rounds will last for 72 hours, with rounds that overlap the weekends always lasting till late Monday PST since many don't or can't get on during the weekends. Sign ups will last until Wednesday next week, and round one will begin that day.

If you have questions, feel free to ask.

The Inverted:
1. Hotknives - Rogue
2. Wings - Northstar
3. MartijnB - Omega Red
4. Liquid Nitrogen - Surge
5. Abaddon - Hope
6. Mastermind - Cannonball
7. Gibbering Fool - Vanisher
8. New Girl - Karma
9. Gardien - Pixie

Cool!

Hey does "all X-Men characters" include the villains or only the members of the actual x-teams?

What about Havok and Sabretooth? Are they excluded or are they just returned to their normal selves? Given they're both inverted.

@MartinjnB: Any mutant, because it's very reasonable to assume that just like Utopia there might be usually villanous character that chose to play nice to take advantage of the safety of the X-Men's new haven to avoid the M-Pox and Terrigen Mists.

@Wings: Hmm that's a good question. I'll say that they are still available to play, and it's up to the person choosing them if they want them affected to be inverted backwards, so it would still count as an inversion, or if because they are already inverted it doesn't affect them.

@Hotknives: Rogue is all yours.

So good to see this back

CANNONBALL, If I may!

Perhaps before Izzy and Little Jebadiah or Obediah or whatever that little munchkins name is....

..or maybe I'll keep them in for stories sake.

Going to keep the sign-ups open a few days longer since there are so few people in the game so far. If there are people that usually play the game (I haven't played for awhile so not sure who all was still playing) give them a poke, get them riled up to find a betrayer once more! Time for some betrayal!

Hey gang, looks like you need a few more numbers. I'm going to brush off my RPGing skills and join in if you'll have me. I'd love to try my hand at the Vanisher; weasely coward self involved villain? A moral inversion will be pretty interesting :D

I sent messages to a few more people who haven't visited the site in a while. Hopefully we'll get a few more players.

Howdy all, after being away for so long in going to get back into the BG games for some good fun. I think I'm going to take Dust for another spin

EDIT: After giving it some thought maybe I'll try Pixie instead

It better, it took me a while to find that pic of Hope looking scared to death and I don't want that to go to waste. :P

So since this is an inversion game, I was thinking that Nightmare from AoX would be the perfect opposite of Pixie. I originally was going to play Dust like her counterpart from House of M but Pixie just seemed like more fun. I really hope this game continues too.

Hey all, I'm really sorry about the game never taking off. I wasn't checking as much when we had few players, and then I got swamped and I forgot to even come to this website. That's no excuse though, I should have remembered to come here after saying I would run this game. If you're all still up for playing we can get this going, if you think there are enough players. If you've lost interest and want to move on, I totally understand.
