*** Inception Warz *** Game Thread

(A big thanks to everyone who signed up, and relantel for co-modding)

Introduction

"I can access your mind through your dreams,"

Image

Dominic Cobb explained to his employer.

"You create the world of the dream. We bring the subject into that dream and fill it with their subconscious."

Image

And without any further explanation, the man in the suit slid a briefcase of money to Dominic Cobb. The target had been selected. The time and date set. And now, payment in full. Up for grabs, was an intricate business expansion plan that would lead to the downfall of Dom Cobb's employer, and the company he had crafted from the ground up.

"How is this even possible? How can you trick the mind into believing that a dream is real?", the employer questioned. Normally Dom Cobb hated explaining the depth of the craft, but in this case he decided to make an exception.

"Well dreams, they feel real while we're in them, right? It's only when we wake up that we realize how things are actually strange. Let me ask you a question, you, you never really remember the beginning of a dream do you? You always wind up right in the middle of what's going on."

Image

"Sure, sure - nobody ever remembers how a dream begins," the employer replied.

"Then tell me, what were we just doing ten minutes ago?" Cobb questioned.

Night-time in a large, city-scape somewhat resembling New York.

Ulf slowly strolled down the street. Something isn't right about this... his mind told himself. It was the buildings. They were oddly shaped, they didn't resemble the area he had grown up in, but for some reason, he knew this was where he was supposed to be. I've got to get to the locksmith his mind started to put the doubts of his location towards the back as he focused on his purpose.

Unseen from the alleyway, Dominic Cobb slowly creeped up against the side of a brick wall. Ulf strolled right past him.

Wait a minute he thought to himself, something that's here that shouldn't be he - before the mind could finish the thought

Image

A silenced gunshot pierced the crisp air, as the Extraction Team closed on Ulf's lifeless corpse.

"Check him," said Cobb. Arthur knelt next to the body and rolled it over.

Image

Spoiler:
"It's just a subconscious projection," Arthur said standing back up.

Cobb glanced at his watch. "Let's move, the projections will be closing in fast now. Dammit Arthur, this was your responsibility," Cobb sounded off angrily. "Now we're exposed, and the subconcious is going to be looking for us."


It is now Day 1. With 19 remaining, it will take 10 to vanquish. There is no voting time limit for today.

So, can we assume that this is basic Warz with the Inception theme. i.e., Dom Cobb is the alpha red, Arthur and maybe one other are his red "Extraction Team", and we have the green "target" and one or two other green helpers?

Just trying to frame what's probably in this game.

Maybe one other? Doc said in the sign-up thread that there is a character called "Eames" that is also a red.

I assume it is the 3 standard green roles + the Target.
Though the Target could be the Angel with enhanced powers/role?

I went back and read the write-up again, my bad for not checking it before that post.

I'd say that's a reasonable assumption too.

Sign-up thread says the Target is the seer and that there is a Bodyguard (angel) and Assassin (vig).

also, did anyone see what this was?

In case any of you don't want any crazy surprises during the game, pay particular attention about an hour and 12 minutes in to what is said by Cobb.

i think that makes sense as a general statement. I wonder where the Doc Emrick twist comes into play. :lol:

No clue, and I couldn't find it via Google. I haven't seen the movie since it was in theater, but went back via Wikipedia and read the plot.

:lol: I think we're looking at several potential twists -
INCEPTION WARZ combines the classic elements of your typical Warz and Mafia game, and enhances it using a "state of mind" variable. In the state of mind there are various levels dictating what can be done and what cannot be done. More on this will be revealed as the game progresses. Participants will always be unaware of the state of mind they are in.


Other roles or parts of the subconscious may come into play at any time during the game.
