RE: Delete the Virus
I (Bob) create a program to create turing machines to challenge the virus about whether they halt or not.
This, of course, is an uncomputable task (but it is not paradoxical).

There really is no excuse, I’m irresponsible and bad at updating things. Sorry for the very long wait, and I will make certain to keep up with this better.

Quote:The bird moves to confront Link, directly applying flames to the character.
The bird repairs the Fortress, giving it a heal.
The bird continues charging. (5/10).

You attack Link! Let’s see how he responds......

You heal the fortress for 10 points of health! But, due to actions in a post after this, it is reduced to 5 points!

Quote:Action 1: "What!?" Kit meows. "I could have sneaked in this entire time! Curse my ignorance. There is only one thing to do now! Keep breaking the fort!" Kit builds up his energy. The cat brings forth his intellect and powers. He summons the strength of his mighty ancestors the lions. As he does this, a blue light appears around him. It expands and then contracts into a sort of aura. The aura shifts and finally settles on the shape of a lion. Kit lets out a small meow and the lion aura lets out a great roar. Kit meows the following while the spirit lion lets out a low growl about it. "The power is mine! Ah ha ha!"
Action 2: Kit begins moving in the aura, but it doesn't exactly move with him. Kit meows, "Agh, of course. I have to fine tune this as well. Fine." He takes out his keyboard and starts to make a long line of text. He is eventually able to link the movements of himself to the lion aura around him. He tests it out and it seems to work fine. He runs a quick lap around the fortress for fun and it seems to go well enough.
Action 3: "Good, with that done, I will use my full force to attack the..." Kit looks around at his aura and realizes it isn't exactly solid yet. "Another problem!? Why?" He proceeds to think about the needs of a lion to survive. He thinks about the habits of lions and how they hunt for food. He finally comes to the conclusion that the aura is hungry and therefore not wanting to be a solid. "Ah yes, I guess my ancestors would want food." Kit summons up a can of tuna and tosses it in front of the lion aura. Without his command, the spirit gobbles up the tuna inside and immediately becomes more cohesive, creating a nice protective layer around its outside that can be used for actually interacting with stuff instead of looking cool.

Tracking Cat God Summon: 11/30
(I’m assuming you want this to be an entity, correct me if I’m wrong)
You summon the LION AURA! This entity is firmly Anti-Virus, and due to it’s connection to you it cannot be corrupted unless you become Pro-Virus yourself. It will not attack other entities unless you specifically command it to, however.

Quote:Thinking Quickly, Alistair gives some orders via the controller! Link blocks the bird's attack with the Mirror Shield! It can eat three fire attacks and then shoot out a burst of flame! To ensure this sticks, Alistair sacrifices one action to ensure this is so.

The Good Boy, meanwhile, notices that the Bird is attacking Link and, at the order of Alistair, attacks the Bird. Instead of saving :link from the attack, though, Good Boy interrupts the enemy's attempt at healing, though the bird's flight keeps it from suffering any real damage.

Alistair swears. He was hoping to use this turn to prepare Link and Good Boy for the Mites! But maybe he could do something about that from his end.

He uses his last two actions to program up a Mite-Eater! One Action goes towards giving ti form and health, and the other goes towards giving it locomotion and attack power. However, he sacrifices said general attack power in order to give it the ability to hit multiple Mites at once.

He orders it to get inside the Fortress. If it can't find a way in, then it is to burrow inside through the walls. It'll leave Link and Good Boy at the mercy of the Mites and Bird, but there was nothing he could really do about that. All he could do was hope their backup help would get there in time to keep them alive.
Due to the fire shield, the Bird is unable to damage link! The flame it shoots out is unable to reach The Bird due to it’s flight, however.

The Good Boys actions, as previously stated, have halved the amount of health that the fortress is healed!

The Mite-Eater has been summoned! Next turn, it will arrive and join Link and The Good Boy.

Quote: I (Bob) create a program to create turing machines to challenge the virus about whether they halt or not.
This, of course, is an uncomputable task (but it is not paradoxical).

Howdy, Bob! The Virus is immediately confused as it begins processing the challenges of these turning machines, and will be stunned for the next turn!

The Battlefield
Inside The Fortress, The Mites have found Link and the Good Boy, and begin to attack!

The Mites small size allows them to land a few good hits on Link, ducking under his sword and clawing onto his back, and causing a total of 7 damage to him! Link, however, manages to slash some of them as they claw and leap towards them, killing two and severely injuring one! The Good Boy defends Link from the Mites that’s hadnt begun attacking him, barking as they got close and snapping at them with their jaws, though not injuring them.

The Mite-Eater continues burrowing through to the fortress, and will arrive next turn to deal with the little pests!

Virus Health: 72/100

Link: 52/60 (Storming the fortress/Fighting Mites!)
Good Boy: 60/60 (Following Link!)
Lion Aura: 60/60
Mite-Eater: 20/20
The Origin Server

Due to focusing on IRL events, Gutza will be gone form the game. I am not sure whether permanent or temporary (that depends on how much longer the game goes, which I imagine won’t be too long. The portal to The Origin Server will remain open for two more turns, and anyone can choose to enter and finish where he left off. If no one does, the Scout Team will return to the battlefield in two turns and the portal will be permanently closed.

RE: Delete the Virus
Action 1: "Now, it is time to unleash my full, lion, powers!" Kit charges at the Viral Fort, running with great speed. He unleashes a great swiping attack with his new cat aura. However, as he makes contact, a text box appears. It reads "I'm Not a Robot" with a check box in front of it. Kit quickly taps the button. It takes a few seconds to load, but then it pops up with an image chopped up into a few boxes. Above, it states, "Press all of the images with cars in them." Kit uses his feline agility to quickly tap them all. The first picture disappears and a new one reappears. It beckons the same command. Kit does the same thing. Finally, a huge text box stating, "YOU ARE A ROBOT," appears in front of Kit. "Blasted computer," Kit meows. "They never learn. Well, I guess I should make a drone feature for the aura so I don't fall for this again *grumble grumble*." Kit goes back to his keyboard, types in a few quick commands, and then presses enter. The lion aura slowly shifts, removing its blue light from Kit to right next to Kit, making it its own entity (or giving it a dodge chance if it already was).
Action 2: "No no no no no no no no NO!" Kit hisses. "We musn't let The Origin Server go unfound. I need to send in my best associate." Kit picks up the phone part of a dial phone and dials a number. It seems a bit longer than a normal number, more like an IP address than a telephone number. The phone rings for a few minutes and a meowing voice is heard from within. Translation Provided:
New Cat: "Who is this!"Kit: "Hello again! It's been so long.""Ugh. Why does it have to be him.""I'll make this short. I need you to be an agent for me. You'll be like an extension of my power.""Pssh. What power? Last I checked, you were still a loser.""Look, I know we don't see eye to eye, but come on! This is important!""I'm not getting caught in your web of tricks again Kit, understood?""No, I don't understand. Especially since, if we do this right, you could get all the kitty treats you'll ever need. How does that sound?"*Growl* "Fine. But don't expect me to enjoy working with you.""Who does?"
Kit hangs up with a satisfactory cat face. He waits around for a few minutes, and a grumpy looking cat in a wheel chair appears. "This better be good," he grumble.
"Grumpy!" Kit meows. "It's so good to see you. Now, all you've gotta do is follow my instructions and use my power.
"Fine!" Grumpy barks. "Just get on with it!"
"Okay, okay. All you've got to do for now is hop in that portal. Okay?"
"No." Grumpy crawls into the portal, just barely not scratching up Kit.

"Good boy," Alastair encourages through a built in microphone on his controller. "Keep them off of Link for a bit more and hopefully the Mite Eater will take care of the rest."

In the meantime, Link had a much bigger job. Constantly dodge rolling around to keep the Mites from damaging him, Alastair guides Link through the Fortress! As he does so, he maps out the physical locations and, thanks to elaborate metaphor structure to coding format, understands the best point to attack in order to collapse the Viral Fortress! It took three actions, too, so he's certain the weak point is fixed.

"Alright Link, you're a living weapon's arsenal," Alastair says to himself as he puts in the proper button inputs. "Use it on the weak point and take this place down!"

Hopefully this would end things and, with it, free him up to help out with the origin server.
Level Up: The Revival

No, I am not explaining the subtitle. Yes I made a forum game before I posted anywhere else. Maybe, I could be inflating my own ego. No, surprisingly, I do not like that as much as I should.

RE: Delete the Virus
I deploy honeypots which die simply to protect antiviral entities. Bob codes an Auto Hex Editor which overwrites enemy units with corrupted entities which are likely to backfire on the viral units. Unfortunately, it will take time for me to train the Auto Hex Editor to identify sensitive parts of code. I also download the Virus onto a virtual machine, on a different computer, with VPN, using Tor, to sift through files to construct a refined virus to attack the real virus.

Honeypot: Does absolutely nothing except absorb damage and block attacks.
Auto Hex Editor: Increases corruption slightly for more power.
Good Virus: Will be able to take requests from antiviral players.

The bird goes to confront the Mite-eater. Using the scrapped extinguishers from earlier, The Bird creates a large Portable Freezer to make its processes freeze up. Two actions are taken to ensure this.
The bird then turns to the Virus, and explains the halting problem. This undoes the stun condition.
Noot noot doot doot.

Ubersketch, I sent you a PM but you haven’t done what I’ve asked so I’ll put it here too in case you haven’t seen it. Please change your post to make it so you are only performing three actions, and choose if you want to sacrifice one or two of them to make one or two of your charges go through.

This isn’t me calling you out, by the way. I’m not mad at all, I just want to update soon and I don’t want to have to void your post because I can imagine that would suck.

The LION AURA is now it’s own entity! It will attack enemy entities and defend itself without any prompting from you.

The Grumpy looking cat (no relation to the more famous, even grumpier cat, I assume) crawls into the portal.

The Good Boy continues to defend against the Mites, managing to kill the one with the least health. This manages to free up Link, and allows him to find the weak point you located. Using his bombs, he deals a whopping ten damage to the fortress with one attack! He will continue attacking at the end of the turn.

The Honeypots have been deployed! They will be active for the next two turns and either nullify or mitigate damage to Anti-Biral entities. As for the auto-hex editor....you know corruption is a bad thing, right? More corruption will increase the power of The Virus, which definitely is good for you.

When the Good Virus has been summoned, it will not immediately be of the same power as the normal Virus, though it will still be a powerful entity. It will have to be upgraded over time.

The Mite Eater is frozen! It will not be able to reach the fortress until two turns from now, assuming it still stands.

The Virus, after hearing the Birds explanation, is able to change its coding to account for the issue, and return to normal functioning! It quickly focuses on what’s happening in it’s fortress, more specifically, Links location....

The Battlefield
The Good Boy continues defending against The Mites, dealing heavy damage to one of them! The Mites are on the defensive at the moment, afraid of their opponents clearly superior jaws.

The Lion Aura takes notice of the sleeping Mites outside, and pounces on them! Two of the Mites are quickly destroyed by it’s powerful jaws, and the rest are quickly awakened, and begin scurrying away.

Link attacks the weak point of the Fortress once again, dealing another 10 damage. Before he could continue his attack however, The Virus suddenly appears before him, sending him staggering back! The Hero Of Time quickly gets into a position of battle, ready to finally take the main opponent on. The Virus shifts it’s arms into glowing blades, and thrusts one of them forwards towards Link, but is quickly surprised when the Honeypots absorb the damage, leaving Link unharmed! Using the moment of distraction to his advantage, Link slashes against The Virus’s chest, dealing 4 damage! The Virus moves back out of his reach after taking damage, and takes on a defensive battle stance, the two opponents now in a standstill.....

The Origin Server
The Grumpy looking cat has entered the origin server! The actions Sam made previously are still there, so the data will be sent to the players and the Government.

Quickly reading through the Archives and seeing what was previously stated to be in there, the cat moves on to Simulations.

Inside, there are possibly hundreds of simulations, each of different scenarios. Some real viral attacks, some hypothetical, some completely improbable. From what you are able to extrapolate, this is the source of the Virus adaptational abilities. It was put through all of these simulations many times, and each time was upgraded based on the results of the simulation. Eventually it got to the point where it could self upgrade, and just. Kept. Going. It’s likely that was the point where it was actually released onto the internet. How interesting......

RE: Delete the Virus
Action 1: Kit heads back to his keyboard and opens up Goggle Manganese. He then proceeds to search "explosion." He sets his search result to "images" and waits. His floating screen fills up with images of different explosions. Kit turns to his mouse and right clicks the tab. The options box pops up, and Kit presses duplicate. He presses duplicate again. And again. He eventually just starts whacking his mouse with his paws until he feels he has an appropriate amount of tabs. Next, he takes these tabs and rests them upon the Viral Fortress. Finally, he right clicks one of the many explosion tabs and presses reload. The tab explodes, causing a chain reaction within the other tabs. Explosion upon explosion fires upon the viral fortress. A cat shaped fireball erupts from the great fire. Kit sits there, feeling happy with himself. "People have always called me a tabby cat," he meows.
Action 2: "Alright Grumps, what do you see?" Kit asks.
"Nothing interesting. Can I get paid yet?"
"No. What I want you to do is open the file named 'BACK-UPS," okay?"
"No."
"Why not!?"
"'Cause I haven't gotten paid yet."
"Just do it!"
"Fine, but I want a raise."
"Just do it, please."
"*Grumble* *grumble*" Grumpy looking cat looks into "BACK-UPS" and relays what he reads to Kit.

RE: Delete the Virus
Okay, so, I think everyone can tell this game is dying to put it bluntly. It’s none of ya’lls fault though. It’s mine for being so inactive and infrequent at updating. Even after forgetting to update while waiting for more posts, there have only been two posts since the last one. I’ve also come up with another idea for a DTG-esque game, which I really want to pursue but don’t want to start with DTV still active and unresolved. So, I’ll ask what everyone wants to do.

Do you want to simply abandon the game and just treasure the fun that was already had?

Does anyone want to take over as the Gamemaster and try to revive it?

Or do ya’ll want some closing post from me to resolve everything?

Sorry about this, really.
