To repeat the same action over and over again and expecting a different outcome is the very definition of insanity. Such is that of Sisyphus
-Unknown Philosopher

Hello there my fleshie buddies and my superior robotic companions to this episode of.........
GAMESHOW!
My name is Sisyphus' Demon, or as you may know me, Sisyphus. I am your benevolent lord, master, protector, and administrator.
As you know, people sign up for our lovely gameshow in order to further the pursuit of science, knowledge, and of course to attain whatever pathetic goals their temporary minds desire.
Contestants are grouped into separate player groups.
Everyone answers questions, and as we know Majority Rules!
This means that the entire group's answer will become the most commonly submitted answer from that group.
If the correct answer has been submitted the entire group moves onto the next question and gains points. If they all answer incorrectly, they all die : D
There are exceptions as we have varying question types, different logics behind answers, and we have even different type of answer results.
Player groups all have points per group, and once the group manages to get the correct number of points they can choose to finish their game. However, each person's points contribute to the group, and if any single person decides to finish the game early, they can leave everyone else behind!
Stay tuned for the ruleset we play by, game types, the losers who managed to get banned from playing anymore, the graveyard, and the signup form if you want your deepest desires rewarded (or if your inferior mind actually desires a cease of existence).

After the usual rigamarole we'll get to introducing our contestants, the practice round, and then playing the actual game!

Answer & Game Types
Spoiler :
Answer Types:
-Yes/No or True/False, self explanatory
-Multiple choice
-Open/Short Answer: there will be a set of accepted answers. Someone must get an answer close to an accepted answer.
-Essay: Convince Sisyphus that your answer is correct. This means the discussion phase is your answer, but players may answer independently on this. However, if a group does not have a unanimous answer, players in that group who are incorrect will be executed.

Game Types:
-Majority Rules: Simple as pie. The most commonly chosen answer is the group's answer.
-The Power of One: A randomized player in each group is selected. This is kept secret from the group. This player's answer is the answer for the entire group. In version A, the selected player will die after they answer. In version B only the selected player will die if they are wrong. In version C, the entire group dies if they are wrong.
-Minority Rules: The least commonly chosen answer is selected for the group's answer.

Logic Types
Spoiler :
This is where all of Sisyphus' logical methods of deciding the true answer of a question are detailed.
-Prejudiced: Fleshies are fucking disgusting
-Contrary: I know your instinct is to say one thing, but it's actually the other.
-Excited: Oh I just love this one!
-Logic: Kind of boring, but sometimes I can see why.
-Spiteful: The point of this is just to piss you off : D
More to come over time.

Banned from Living
Spoiler :
((These are users who have broken a noteworthy rule and may no longer play this game.))
No pathetic fleshies have managed to piss me off enough to order a contract on their life : D
How about we keep it that way?

Graveyard
Spoiler :
((These are dead characters))
Nobody worth mentioning has died so far.

Contestant History
Spoiler :
No current contestants worth speaking of!

Signup form
((Think of this as a roleplay character application. You may submit one after a character you were playing has died, if your application was taken out of your control you may submit one next round, or if you don't have a character in play.
We encourage characters in the game to be related to each other, or for them to have pre-existing connections with other characters. This is for the sake of story, and you can get point multipliers.))

Gender Identity: (If applicable)

Name: Dale
Gender Identity: female
Age: 15
Sexuality: no interest
Current Greatest Desire: to become wealthy
Number of Relatives: two parents and an older brother
Background: Dale grew up being told what to do all the time by her parents and her brother. Her parents always told her that she owed them because they were the ones who paid for her food and shelter. She hopes to find an opportunity to leave and be in charge of her own self, but until then she would be happy to build up some capital to call her own.
Short explanation of personality: Dale is kind of selfish and has some trouble finding it within herself to cooperate if it wasn't her idea.
Are you a disgusting fleshie?: Y

A hideous wonderous contraption of gears and loose wires approaches the signup office, belching in its wake a sickly gray cloud from its exhaust pipe. With a click and a whirr, the android, if it can even be called that, spits out a receipt with lettering haphazardly burned into it, which then is cut, and flutters to the ground.

NAME: CLANKBOT.
GENDER IDENTITY: NO.
AGE: ERR: UNSPECIFIED VALUE
SEXUALITY: CLANKBOT.
CURRENT GREATEST DESIRE: TO FOLLOW ORDERS AND ANSWER QUESTIONS.
RELATIVES: CLANKBOT'S CREATOR, AND CLANKBOT'S BROTHERS IN DESIGN
.
BACKGROUND: CLANKBOT IS PROUD TO BE AMONG THE FIRST OF CLANKBOT'
S KIND, A MEMBER OF THE NEW AND POWERFUL ANDROID RACE! WITH PREC
ISION AND CLARITY, CLANKBOT WILL ANSWER ANY QUESTION UPON VERBAL
COMMAND, THROUGH THE WONDERS OF MODERN TECHNOLOGY AND COMPUTING.
CREATED BY ERR: STRING LENGTH
IS CLANKBOT A DISGUSTING FLESHIE: ERR: UNSPECIFIED VALUE


Having done what it came here to do, the hopeful automaton turns and clatters back out the door on its rapidly stomping feet. It's almost a miracle that it didn't fall over during the entire process.

((Whoops I should probably notate that the setting is a bit sci-fi, not on earth, in a subterranean egalitarian (outside of the class differences between organic humans and inorganic robots) socialist society. Paying for food and shelter are not a part of this society as it is something provided for free, /but/ this can still work towards Dale being selfish. Manipulative relatives and all.
Also characters do not have to be consensual players. This is how they deal with criminals.))
