Badass Dragon Scavengers of the Void - Final Standings


#1

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”

–Hunter S. Thompson

Here we are at the end of another exciting romp through the galaxy of Charybdis. I do sincerely hope that you’ve enjoyed the last several weeks of what my spouse lovingly refers to as ‘that space lobster game’. I hope that the game made your burdens a little lighter, your imaginations a little more vibrant, and has left you with some fond memories of the experience. If anybody spent any portion of their Monday or Tuesday evenings mashing F5 while waiting for updates, I’ll chalk that up in the ‘win’ category.

Son of a frosty biscuit, I’m beginning to think my inability to keep your totals correct is something more unsettling than mere carelessness. What is it about the noble moose that prevents him from being bounded by mere math?

It is a mystery.

Fixed!

###Players’ Choice awards

Favorite character concept:
Honorable mentions go out to @othermichael, @steampunkbanana, and @sealion, but the player favorite by a longshot is…

@old for the role of Dottie. Our little space princess was always entertaining, full of surprises, and the reason a quarter of the crew have Princess-themed callsigns!

Best character development:
A hotly contested category. Honorable mentions to @critter, @monkeyoh, and @penguinchris, but ekeing out the win is….

@donald_petersen for the role of Tex. And this was before anyone knew you chose not to betray the entire ship!


#9

And last but not least, the award for the player…

Most Expected to Privately Submit Orders to Use the Escape Pods in the Final Round
A special mention for our departed Seelo @SeaLion. Although he never had the chance to cut and run, he was a write in for this category.

This was the closest of all categories. People had strong feelings about who would betray them, and while the honorable mention goes to @bizmail_public and @newliminted, the one everyone had picked to leave them in the dust was…

@donald_petersen by a hair!


#10

Meatshield, huh? Probably the best gig I’ve had in this forsaken galaxy.

Maybe next time Perfectly Normal comes out on top.


#11

I am so, SO honored by that (and Tom, too, I hope).

Thank your for a GREAT ride - I had a lot fun.

Shame we didn’t get a chance to try kill each other, though.


#12

Indeed!

And a little friendly murder between mess mates would have been fun!

[Any of our mystery players going to remove the masks?]


#13

Thanks for DM’ing @messana. This was something I looked forward to on Mondays. Very fun and I really appreciated the flexible time commitments.

Kudos on the complicated bot wrangling as well. :smiley:


#14

Hell yeah, @messana! Thanks for all the fun!


#15

I am a faithless elector, and give any (the) vote(s) submitted in my name to @SteampunkBanana.

I tried really hard to create an unlikable character that others wanted to murderdeathkill.

But that PunkyNanner: He did it with ease, and it looked effortless.


Thanks for the show, @messana !


#16

Thanks for giving me a reason to look forward to Mondays… Even if I needed to double check the moose math.

Next game, what about Reverse Alphabetical Order?

Good Show!


#17

Frankly, once I hit upon the idea of Watney he seemed like the kind of guy that would mention Mars at least once in a post. Add he’d want to tell you all about everything he did to survive.

Like, endlessly.

Peterson gave me a great setup though, in his introduction, I’d never even considered Watney would have beef with anyone, he’d just be annoying as hell. And look like Ben Affleck.


#18

PHEW!

That was SO. MUCH. FUN.

Thank you @messana for a fantastic game. I really admire and appreciate the work you put into this. I really and truly look forward to BASD every week.

That goes for the rest of you lot, too. You crack me right up, and every round I was in great amaze at your variety, your humour, your seasonings, and your complexity. I enjoyed playing with you all.

SMAK

SSSSSSSSS!! Ttttthhhh!

###The Five Stages of Running a BBS Door Game

Denial: Nobody will sign up anyway, that’s fine.
Bargaining: If at least three people sign up, I’ll be okay with that.
Acceptance: Hey! A bunch of people signed up!
Mutants: O gods they’re changing their avatars to match their characters…this is really happening.
Panic: Wait, I actually have to make this work? What am i supposed to do now? Halp!

What a ride, phew! I’d like to extend my most gracious thanks to all the players that made this happen. Your patience, your creativity, and your honesty cannot be overstated. Through all the Kassandra bugs that you endured, all the frustrating parsing errors, and all the double checking of my results, you were the stars of this show.

While I have you here, if you’d be interested in participating in the player postmortem, it will hopefully help whoever chooses to carry the torch forward into the next game.

+--GM Victory Conditions-----------

“Radio Free Coleridge, Guardian Channel 2, Final broadcast. Princess Rembrandt (my daughter is SO proud!) bidding you a fair farewell, wishing all the best to friends living and dead, and fond hopes our paths will cross again in this trackless expanse…it’s in your heart, your soul, your mind…”
