I am excited to announce my fifth Marathon game, which will take place primarily on Skype. Over the course of 48 hours, between October 6-7, which, not-so-coincidentally, is Columbus Day weekend, we will play out a full game of Survivor.

This game is titled Survivor: New World. In the tradition of Survivor: One World and Survivor: Worlds Apart, this miniature Survivor game will test, like never before, several castaways’ ability to adapt to changing circumstances. Aspiring winners will have to respond to twists that will change the fiber of what it means to play Survivor, or risk becoming obsolete. In the end, as always, just one person will remain to claim the title of Sole Survivor, and the intriguing out-of-game reward that goes along with it.

This game has been designed, though some small aspects are still in development, including a few challenges. However, I want to assuage some concerns you may have if you’ve seen or heard of one of my previous Skype games.

1. This game will NOT feature >30 idols or advantages. Some of you may be disappointed by this, and I apologize. However, the game WILL feature at least one overarching twist which, surprisingly, will have very little to do with items.
2. For the first time since season one in my series, Redemption Island will NOT be in play. However, players may still be able to earn the chance to return to the game.
3. This game will be the most fun you could possibly have on a Columbus Day weekend.

I'm sure you know how Survivor works, but be sure to check out this ruleset, and please feel free to ask any clarifying questions.

Spoiler: Rules
1. This is a game, so the primary goal is to have fun.
2. This is a game, so another goal is to win.
3. Don't be a dick. I reserve the right to kill your slot if you're making this game unpleasant for others, thus violating rule #1.
4. Don't take advantage of any unclear rules. Ask questions, and I'm always happy to provide clarifications. Cheating makes me sad, and people who make me sad get eliminated.
5. Everyone comes in with a unique set of skills, and I will sometimes be unable to cater to everyone's individual needs. This is ESPECIALLY true in Skype games, where some challenges will unfortunately be dependent on Internet speed. I've done my best to mitigate some of those concerns, but please realize that it might be a factor in some challenges.
6. I make mistakes. Please let me know if I make a mistake, and I'll do my best to rectify it.
7. The outcomes of immunity or reward challenges are final.
8. Failure to vote will result in a random vote being cast, and will earn you a strike. Failure to submit for challenges requiring a submission will also garner a strike.
Three strikes, or two strikes in a row, can result in a medical evacuation.
9. Ties will be handled as follows:

a. If 2 or more players are tied in an initial Tribal Council vote, we will NOT revote. Those players not involved in the tie must unanimously decide which of the tied individuals will go home, otherwise, I will randomly draw rocks to decide who goes home. Only the Immunity Challenge winner, those who are otherwise immune, and those who were being voted for will be safe from drawing rocks.

b. If all votes cast against players are ruled not to count because of items, or twists in the game, there will be a revote. The Immunity Challenge winner, and anyone else who was immune in the first vote, will have immunity from this revote. If a further revote results in a tie, I will follow the procedures listed above.

c. In a revote (because no valid votes were cast), items such as idols etc. WILL be able to be used. In the event that any vote ends with only one person being not immune (and no valid votes cast), the person who is not immune will be sent home with no revote. In the event that ALL players are rendered immune, one of two things will happen. If the game has reached the merge, then we will move on to the next round, and no formal elimination will occur. If the game has not reached the merge, then all items will be considered wasted, and another revote will occur.

d. In the event that the game ends in a Final Three, all finalists will also cast a vote. In the event of a tie, the finalist with the fewest votes will break the tie.

10. No screenshotting or quoting of communications between players or communications to or from the moderator will be allowed.


Please express your interest here in this thread. If you're only able to play one of the two days, let me know, and I'm open to letting you "switch out", if we find someone else in an opposite situation. I am looking for as many players as wish to play, but a minimum of 14.

The game will probably take place from about 7 pm EST to 1 am EST each night, but the times are subject to change.

Sign-ups:

1. Xofelf
2. Ani
3. D3f3nd3r
4. Aronis
5. Randomidget
6. McMenno
7. Skelda
8. Cheery Dog
9. Mina
10. OGML?

:D Trust me when I say that this is both a necessary rule, based on historical precedent, and that you're pretty unlikely to be on the wrong side of it, Jess.

I want to officially confirm that, among other things, the Hidden Immunity Idol clue from MK will be able to be utilized in Skype-Vivor: New World.

This has been a Public Service Announcement.

I am probably going to be working past 7 Eastern at least one of these two days, but I'm going to egopost this just in case.

I'll probably give it until Sunday at midnight just in case, but if it's not much closer to 16 people signed up by then, I'll probably go ahead and shut it down for now, and try again around Christmas break in just a few months.
