Amusing Awards Artifact Adventure - Lounge (REPLACEMENTS WELCOME)

Slots are full (real), replacements still more than welcome of course! If we get 1 or 2 more interested users I'd be willing to extend the maximum sign-ups to 18 and squeeze a few more of the players who have already expressed interest in.

As it turns out, I'll actually be on a camping trip from July 6th to 12th and won't be able to access the internet during that time. I would be able to serve as a replacement after that time. I'm not sure whether this should warrant a removal from the replacement list. Sorry for the oversight.
This is fine, if I need a replacement and you can't make it then I'll move on to whoever's next on the list.
 
Hi I didn't see this so if you can't squeeze me in I'll be a replacement
 
Well that seems pretty definitive and I doubt we'll need 6 replacements, so I've extended the maximum player count to 18 and bumped up a few replacement players to fill those slots (if you'd rather stay specifically as a replacement, please let me know). This is the only extension I'm comfortable making, so any further sign-ups will have to be for replacements only.

"In this game, players will be separated into teams and tasked with exploring the Waluigi Time Amusement Park, where they will meet many colorful characters with quests and special artifacts to give out! The goal, of course, is to complete these quests to obtain as many artifacts for your team by the end of the game as possible."

Heh heh. "colorful characters", "quest reward artifacts", "collect as many as possible"...
Show hands, anyone who hasn't heard THAT one before. Couldn't be me.

OY! BANJO! STOP YOUR SUMMER HIBERNATION!
I WANT TO GO TO THE DEATHTRAP AMUSEMENT PARK!

RebelAgent: Boss, I've finally found it!

SurprisedDoctor: Found what?

RebelAgent: Another anomaly! It's at an amusement park with multiple concurrent timelines, and get this... there's gonna be treasure hunting! You know that those two things don't mix... It's a surefire dimensional implosion in the making!

SurprisedDoctor: Alright, calm down a minute. I know the organisation is under hard times ever since that whole "Nexus of Chaos" mess, nobody's taking us seriously anymore and you're chomping at the bit to get back out into the field so we can pay the bills... but I think you might be reaching a little here, man. It's an amusement park.

RebelAgent: Boss, it's run by the guy that convinced everyone that what happened in his factory was because of "cereal fumes". There's no telling what might happen there. You've gotta let me investigate this!

SurprisedDoctor: Alright, you can go. But on one condition: you need to take part in the treasure hunt. Keep a low profile. We're in enough trouble already, I don't want you attracting the attention of any of the other interdimensional peace keeping authorities.

RebelAgent: Yes! You won't regret this, Boss. We'll be back in business in no time.

RebelAgent has logged off.

SurprisedDoctor: Wow, an amusement park treasure hunt, huh? I doubt there's anything serious happening there... it'll be a good holiday for him. Poor kid's been running himself ragged lately.

Alright, everyone, listen up, cause I'll only say this once. My name's Jonesy Fortnite, and this area is now under the jurisdiction of the Temporal Authority. We've detected a Class-A temporal anomaly, so we're here to make sure it doesn't escalate into any kind of catastrophic dimensional meltdown that causes us to lose our spot as the number one peace-keeping organisation in the multiverse. I'll be monitoring any kind of dimensional irregularities, so make sure you let me know. Oh, and if you spot people from any other time and space monitoring companies snooping around... uh... pretend this conversation never happened.

Ohhh, the Temporal Authority sent an agent too. Wow, this must be a time issue! The rumors were right!

Oh well. The Temporal Committee will accept any help the NUMBER TWO time-regulating agency takes.
 
*Chaotix Detective Agency, Station Sqaure. A mysterious note has recently been delivered by an unknown party. Charmy checks the mailbox, then excitedly shows the note to his partners, Espio and Vector.*

Charmy: Guys, guys! We've got work! This amusement park is hosting a relic hunt, and we're invited!

Vector: It's great that we're getting a mission, Charmy, but what exactly are we doing at this relic hunt? I don't want to working under that nasty Dr. Eggman again, even if it pays well...

Charmy: Well, we're supposed to work as a team in order to collect artifacts with the other parkgoers. Whoever collects the most will receive a very nice prize! So, are you guys going to participate or what?

Espio: I'm not particularly interested, Charmy. This seems like a big scheme. We don't know who it's from or what the prize is. So I'm being quite skeptical right now. What about you, Vector?

Vector: On one hand it seems fun, but on the other, we don't even know if this is a paid job or not. I know we are the Chaotix Detective Agency and we take any work that pays, but this seems a little suspicious.

Charmy: Aw, come on! It's going to be a lot of fun. Who cares if it pays or we don't know who it's coming from? I just want something to do for us as a team! You guys will go with me, won't you?

Espio: I'll settle a deal, Charmy. You go there and see what's going on. During your time, report back to us at the agency with your findings. That'll allow you to participate without us being involved. It might be harder on your own, but you've proven to be a valuable asset to us.

Vector: Espio's right, Charmy. Both me and him have worked on our own sometimes. Now's your opportunity to show the world what real detective work looks like. Give it your all, little buddy!

*Charmy was delighted by his teammates' encouragement. He packed up his detective gear, and left the Agency as quick as a bee. It was a long way to the amusement park, but Charmy was prepared to show his team what he was capable of without their help.*
 
RING RING!

What's up? Alright. Uh huh. Yeah, got it.

1719685347754.png

Boys, I got a call from someone who sounded completely distressed! He needs our help to collect a bunch of MYSTERIOUS artifacts. Doesn't that sound exciting!

1719685537804.png

That sounds pretty fun, Mr. Boss!

1719685570263.png

Yup. It'll be fun alright.
Very fun.

1719685639490.png

Just watch out for the space-time anomalies! Who knows what kind of WACKY stuff might happen if you stumble into one of those silly little things!

Wait when did we get in the car-
Mr. Boss, you- you look pretty chipper today. What's the occasion?

1719685861676.png

Well, Charlie, I get to meet some old business associates of mine.
What, like friends or something?
Some folks in the temporal industry. Those guys used to spend a lot of time with me.

1719685891556.png

Time they won't be getting back.

1719685762217.png

Now, Smiling Friends, who's ready to make Waluigi Time smile?

Yipee!!!
Hooray...
 
Sign-ups are officially closed, not that they haven't kind of been unofficially closed for a while now. The game will start , 24 hours from now! If you'd like to sign up as a replacement, you're still welcome to do so.

Also, an optional discussion thread for this game has been created in the Mario Awards Discord server. All players and spectators are welcome to participate, but it's not a requirement for playing the game. If you're not a member of the server, you can find a link to join in the General Discussion thread of this board. There will also be a designated role for players to be used for things like pinging when the phase changes, so feel free to request that if you want it.

Yawn... sorry, Kazooie. I don't think I've slept like that since the trash compactor.

What was it? Deathtrap amusement park? Er... I guess we can go take a look.
I hope the burgers and fries are better than last time...

That's a low bar to clear. All the food has to do is give people
less than 4 life-threatening diseases and it will be an improvement.

I got myself vaccinated in preparation anyway.

Something has happened!
Based on player feedback and the progression of the game so far, Action Phases will be extended to 48 hours, and beginning with Phase 2, Explore Phases will be shortened to 24 hours. With the amount of content in the game, it's become clear that more time than necessary has been allotted to explore the park and that this extra time would be better used for planning actions and strategizing with your teammates. The current Explore Phase will not be affected by this change since this would be very short notice otherwise.

Disclaimer: This is not a time anomaly and there is no need for the relevant authorities to investigate (real).
 
What is this?
This is an ongoing forum game, you can find more details in this thread. It's only open to players who have signed up but you can sign up to be a replacement player if you're interested.

(Edit for posterity: This exchange was originally posted in the game thread and has been moved here to keep it tidy.)
