Hey, everyone! With last cycle's deaths out of the way, it's time for a new set of rolls, bringing us to the final ten:

1. Sean Mulcahy (MK Kilmarnock)
2. Finn Grant (Will)
3. Michael Mitchellson (dmboogie)
4. Tyler Lucas (Grim Wolf)

Logs


As always, three days for cards and a further seven for deaths.

With that out of the way, there are a few things to address for the next set of rolls and the approaching end of V5. Our next rolls will bring us down to the final four. The most major thing is a reminder of a section of our activity rules:

Quote:
 
Endgame is the time during which the final handful of characters face off. In V1-3, it contained four characters, while V4 had five. Inactivity for endgame will be handled a little differently. Specifically, once it becomes a handler's turn to post, they have six days to get a post up. If they fail to do so, their character gets declared terminally inactive and is inactive killed. There are no activity warnings in Endgame. It doesn't matter if an inactive character was supposed to win; inactivity will be enforced. Being Away is still allowed, but will be very closely scrutinized and must be announced at least three days in advance for all incidents except emergencies, as the staff hopes to avoid huge delays caused by handlers being gone for long stretches of time. If a handler will be gone for a very lengthy duration, the staff reserves the right to ask them to select a handler to take responsibility for their character in their absence.

If a handler has no interest in being in endgame, or if they do not feel that they can keep up with the posting regime, they can opt out before the final pre-Endgame rolls by sending Help a PM stating that they are doing so. The staff will count those characters as automatically rolled, then roll down to the final four (or five, or whatever is being done for the version) from whoever remains.

Please note that six days is the absolute maximum. Really, it should take much less time than that. Bookkeeping is going to be very strict on this; handlers can and will get busted if they stray over 144 hours at all.

Finally, there are rules regarding the punctuality of the start of Endgame. Endgame should be a time of excitement and activity. Unfortunately, historically Endgames have sometimes gotten bogged down in the planning stages. There are many reasons for this, and the staff understands the necessity of some planning, but at a certain point things just need to get started. It makes no sense to spend months trying to reach an accord on the winner when everyone really wants to take it to rolls.

As such, there will henceforth be a time limit of one month after the death of the final pre-Endgame character for determining a winner. If a winner is not determined in that time, then the game will go to rolls.

There will also be a deadline for starting the Endgame thread. That deadline will be one week after a winner is determined. This is because activity is not enforced until the thread begins, and it's not really good for the climaxes of games to take ages to get rolling.


For all those who are not rolled, this is the time to do some soul searching about whether you have the interest and ability to maintain activity in Endgame. If you don't, or if you think your character is a poor fit, you should PM Help to opt out prior to the final rolls. Please note that, as we now release logs of rolls, opting out will no longer be kept secret from the rest of the site.

Cards may be used this roll and next roll. If you still have a Hero Card, and you want to send someone to Endgame in your place, that is allowed. As soon as the card deadline for the rolls bringing us to the final four passes, however, all remaining cards may no longer be used. Cards are not held between versions.

As a further note, if you are looking to have your character win V5, please reacquaint yourself with the Epilogue guidelines. Please do take into account whether you will have the time and interest to close out the version.

With that out of the way, have at.

Can't say I expect a hero this late, but if you've enjoyed Michael thus far, I'd really appreciate a save. Wanna do as much as I can with my dude.

If not, I've got a death in mind, so peace, y'all.

Haha, first rolled death of this version for me. Well, guess my luck had to run out some time.

Save Tyler if you like. Otherwise, shoot me ideas while I work on plans of my own.

I'm not expecting one at this point in the game, but I'd really really really be super appreciative if someone threw me a hero.

One day, eighteen hours, and ten minutes for deaths. Please ask for extensions ASAP if you'll need them, and remember we'll be watching very carefully for contest voting purposes; any deaths that are late will be disqualified.

I'd like to tentatively request a three-day extension. I may not need it, but my plans have been very in flux and working everyone's schedules together may prove more complicated than I think, so I'd like the cushion.

Aaaaaugh christ. I might need three days unless we can get this sorted out. I might be on time, might be stepping on the wall of my extension. Hard to tell.

Bluh. Joining the hot new dance craze that's sweeping the nation and asking for a three-day extension. Everything's in place, but we need a couple more cycles to finish everything, and I'd rather not risk going over.
