    food is running out. I'm now a cannibal, and y'all look delicious. any of you tree-hugging leaf eaters get in my way, I'm gonna eat your ***

    I imagine hudzu will be delicious, all infused with saffron, and lemongrass, and that vin has been naturally marinating in gravy for years.

    I'm starving, let's fight.

    the rules: for those unfamiliar with survivor battles, they are extremely silly things where characters have points and you get to add points to those characters or take them away. all characters will start with 10 points and each time you change the list you will have 2 points to distribute (your options being +2, -2, +1 -1, +1 +1, -1 -1). all you have to do is copy and paste the list posted by the last person to change it, make your changes, and then announce what you did. you may change the list once every six turns, meaning five people have to change the list before you can change it again (this could be changed, depending on how fast the game moves). you may also use your turn to add a character.

    adding characters: everyone may add a character with their first turn if they wish, but after you add your first character you may only add another character once every four of your own turns, meaning you have to change the list three times yourself between character adds. this is just to help keep the list a manageable size. if it still gets really unwieldy we may have a character cap.

    the end game: at some point the game will wind down and we will switch to the end game. the rules are the same, except adding characters and +2 and +1, +1 posts will no longer be allowed.[/quote]

    What are the implications of this game? I don't even understand. Is it desirable to be eaten, because you are tasty? Does adding points mean you are bulking someone up? Is this taking place in a culture that honors cannabilistic sacrifice, or is this more of a desperate survivor situation where people want to last longer? This has some odd and under-explored dimensions I'd like clarified before continuing to play.

    So if you get no clarifications, you won't play?

    if you die in the game you die in real life

    I don't even understand. Is it desirable to be eaten, because you are tasty?

    What part of being eaten is desirable to you? Is this part of your weird fruit metaphor?

    Does adding points mean you are bulking someone up?

    Adding points adds life

    Is this taking place in a culture that honors cannabilistic sacrifice, or is this more of a desperate survivor situation where people want to last longer?

    A) this is taking place in our culture right now, so no. B) People want to last longer so they don't die in real life.

    So then what does this point model mean? I can eat, say a third of your body weight by eating arms and legs, but you aren't really any closer to death than when you had all your limbs. Are the players in this game some sort of progressive disease process or something? Is there no correlation between point scores and health until they hit zero? Or conversely, if we give someone very high points, are they going to gain superhuman abilities or an accelerated healing factor or something?

    So then what does this point model mean?
    It means you are alive or dead. If you have points, you are alive. If you don't, you are dead.

    I can eat, say a third of your body weight by eating arms and legs, but you aren't really any closer to death than when you had all your limbs.
    This is pretend (just the eating part--you still die in real life if you die).

    Are the players in this game some sort of progressive disease process or something?
    No, the players are totally fine and nothing at all is happening to them because this is a game. Unless they die and then they're dead in real life.

    Is there no correlation between point scores and health until they hit zero?
    No. Again, it is a game and not real.

    Or conversely, if we give someone very high points, are they going to gain superhuman abilities or an accelerated healing factor or something?
    Once again, this is pretend, and all you do is add and take away points until everyone is eliminated and dead in real life.
