Flickr Happy 4th of July, America! Okay, it's a little late, but that's because this is my entry in Round 2 of the 2018 Biocup, my theme the holiday Independence Day. It doesn't exactly depict my typical July 4th celebration, but when I got the theme I just felt right away that nothing says patriotic celebration quite like an eagle painted to look like a flag. I was hoping to test myself at extravagant wings this summer anyways, so this was actually a really fortunate theme for me. I'd love to hear how I did, and hope you enjoy!
ACTUAL FIRST POST http://www.bzpower.com/board/topic/22798-bionicle-mafia-xxxi-extra-american/?p=1080541 (credit to Nik the Three for the banner) Once upon a time, there was a Matoran named Nuck Chorris. He was merely seconds away from completing his masterwork. He had placed a bun made of wheat on the table. He then spread ketchup on that bun, piling on that a meat patty, onions, and cabbage. He then placed another bun atop that. On that lay lettuce, and tomato… and another patty. He then took out a glowing object of pure gloriousness… bacon. He placed the bacon atop the foodstuff pile, and quickly smothered it with the final bun. He then took out his patented frilly toothpick… and gingerly inserted it through the thing. He had finally created his masterwork… The 1/2 pound deluxe bacon cheeseburger. Suddenly, a magic portal erupted from beneath it, transforming Nuck into Chuck… Chuck Norris. A sudden rush of patriotism flowed throughout him, and he quickly got to work transfiguring Ta-Metru to a new land, a shining land of hope… America. America blossomed, much to the confusion of its neighbors and inhabitants. Soon, only the most patriotic of citizens were allowed to stay. These happy few made America great. However, opposition soon rose. From the very cheeseburger that had created America, a new evil arose… Communazism. This evil imbedded itself within the souls of some great Americans, perverting their once great values with socialism… creating the Mafia of Filthy Communazis. Rules: 1. Basic Mafia rules. If you're new to Mafia, or you just need a refresher, just ask. 2. Vote switches are handed out very gingerly, so if you genuinely made a mistake, I'll allow a switch. 3. Night rounds last about 24 hours, and day rounds about 24. However, votes a little late will still be counted. 4. If you are not American, it’s okay. Unless you’re Canadian. (just kidding y’all are pretty neat) 5. And don't reveal your role until after you've been eliminated. Revealing your role prematurely is asking me to boot you from the game. American Roles: Roles assisting the safety of the village. Win by eliminating all Communazis. Average Americans: Those with an unquenchable desire to be average. Basically just normal villagers. Murican Medic: Someone using their powers of patriotism to heal and protect the Americans from death by anti-Americanness. Magnum P.I.: The legendary detective who can discover the role of anyone a night. His epic Hawaiian shirts and mustache will help him evade death but once. Chuck Norris: Has the ability to save all of America. His vote counts double, unless he elects to discover the role of someone. Mafia of Filthy Communazis: Those running the murders. Win by eliminating all neutral/village roles. Vladimir Hitler: The leader of the Filthy Communazis. Can immobilize anyone for one night, or use his special single-use power of overruling the vote of the rest of the mafia. His identity is unknown to the rest of the Mafia. Communazis: The members of the Mafia. They select a villager to kill each night. There are 6. Neutral Roles: Those who are not Village-aligned, yet not Mafia. Win by eliminating all Mafia. Frenchman: If targeted by the Mafia, survives and joins the mafia by surrendering. Canadian: Is just there. Can pick one person to protect and will die in place of their protected if their friend is targeted. PLAYER LIST: 1. JAG18, the returning conqueror 2. Luroka, the guy who un-American-ly changed his name 3. Quisoves Potoo, the bald eagle's fiercest rival 4. Voxumo, the former leader of Okoto 5. Phantom Terror, the person who shamefully has a shameful Mega Bloks avatar 6. Nik The Three, the guy who is now famous for creating this splendiferous banner 7. Ghidora, the guy who would say something against this but won't 8. Rahkshi Guurahk, fellow band nerd/patriot 9. B0ss Mandacus, the bunny 10. jed1ndy, the guy who almost made the banner but then didn't 11. Pulse, the Filthy Un-American who will probably be playing an American due to the fickleness of the RNG 12. TimeLord, the British person who is not American enough 13. Unit, the guy with an unnecessarily long name 14. MavesIgnikari, the 6-post-man 15. FF, the sneky theeph 16. Ta-metru_defender, the enthusiast 17. Toa Smoke Monster, the special one
I saw this movie last week, but I haven't had a chance to post my thoughts on it until now. I'm putting them in spoiler tags, so I don't spoil anything for those who haven't seen it yet and want to. So don't read any further if you don't want to be spoiled.
