Re: [normal] CELL CULTURE: Day 3 - Publish or Perish

@MoA Supporters are likely, even turned cell turned virus are likely. This is the sort of thing I'm worried about. As keeneal pointed out, even people who we thought were town yesterday could easily be scum today. This is (one reason) why it's important for everyone to contribute. Adacore, Dark Loin...

Re: [normal] CELL CULTURE: Day 3 - Publish or Perish

OK. We've killed the two original viruses. Now we need to find people who may have been recruited by viruses or possibly turned into viruses. I don't think we can rule out anyone being scum on the basis of when they joined so we'll have to do this the old-fashioned way. I'm trying to get a read on t...

Re: [normal] CELL CULTURE: Day 3 - Publish or Perish

What worries me about that is there is a natural killer cell on the list, would be able to kill non-infected cells, i would guess. Natural killer cells (or NK cells) are a type of cytotoxic lymphocyte that constitute a major component of the innate immune system. NK cells play a major role in the r...

Re: [normal] CELL CULTURE: Day 3 - Publish or Perish

This game is getting big. Upon looking at the facts, it looks like a cell started to kill, taking out a macrophage. This sounds like one of the cells killed S_E rather than the viruses doing it. (And not knowing the virus rules has me a tad paranoid :shock: ) Since yesterday went so quickly, I think...

So far so good. It seems no one died last night and we weren't told that anyone got infected. If all is as it seems ( :roll: ), we're down to just the one virus. However, there's at least one infected cell and it's possible it has already divided. For that matter, we don't even know what alignment i...

Re: [normal] CELL CULTURE: Day 1 - Invasion Begins

I think CF probably made the right call. I can see that info hurting more than it helps.

I can see astrocytes having some type of communication ability. Neurons would make more sense in that context but they don't divide.

Importantly, stem cells divide fairly rapidly, astrocytes can divide, but not as often and macrophages (I'm pretty sure) don't divide at all. @Sir_Elderberry Yes, stem cells do turn into other cell types which in this game probably means astrocytes or macrophages. However, once a stem cell has diffe...

A few speculation things: There are 5 roles and 5 players, so I'm guessing we've got 1 of each right now.
