  1. Assuming you, Sinical and Rift are ok with that, it's fine with me. I'll figure out a lightning round rule if I get a sudden influx of signups between now and then so we don't run into signups for All-Stars. EDIT: Next Tuesday it is.
  2. This is inspired by the card game "One Night Werewolf" (but it lasts more than one night). Each turn you will get a different role that will include alignment, so you could be the dreamer on turn 1, the wolf on turn 2, and the serial killer on turn 3. Turns last 2 days so you have 1 day to get your power uses in and 1 day to act on those power uses. This has a lot of flexibility in the size of the game. Two-day turns: At the start of each odd-numbered day, you will be given a card with your new role on it. There are 2 more cards than there are players, so that fake role claims can be made. The Jester card may be among the cards left out, but all villain cards will be in play unless dead. Before the end of each odd-numbered day, you MUST put in your power use. Please put in your power use as early as possible and change it later if you change your mind. At the start of each even-numbered day, you will be given the result of your power use. Before the end of each even-numbered day, you MUST vote for a living player to be executed. Execution is by plurality so there will be a player executed each even-numbered day. Ties will be broken by random selection. Rules: If you die, you take your role card with you. There are no villain TEAMS. All villains are OMTs. Each night, the villain cards will have a random number generated for them. The higher random number goes first between them in all things that night. All cards will be listed in the order that their powers are processed. Cards will be listed when the game starts and will be crossed off in the same way as dead players. The game will last until either all villain roles are dead, or until a villain role wins. Which cards are available is determined by how many people sign up. If there aren't enough people, for example, Jester won't be in the mix. Private messages between players regarding the game are not allowed. Dead players do not have private information, since they die just before cards are redistributed. They can talk all they want in the signup thread. Failure to submit a list will result in a strike and your power use will be randomly selected from the living player list (excluding yourself). Failure to vote will result in a strike. (Nobody votes are not allowed, nor is abstaining allowed.) Failure to post on any given day will result in a strike. Three strikes and you die as a neutral (instant loss) and 1 randomly selected role card is removed from the 2 cards not in use that turn. This will happen immediately after the next execution to minimize impact on a round. If something comes up and you need to miss a day, notify me before the end of the previous turn and I will allow substitute a Plain Innocent role for you that turn. Plain Innocents can be killed or executed, but will not receive strikes for failure to participate. Strikes and Plain Innocent status will not be made public, so don't assume that someone is innocent just because they failed to post. Win conditions: The Jester is neutral and wins by being executed (NOT by being killed by a villain) first place ahead of whoever else wins. The innocents win by having members of their team outlive all villains. If you die innocent, you win or lose with the innocents. The innocents are considered to have failed if there is 1 innocent left alive and 1 or more villains. A villain wins by being the last villain left alive with 1 innocent. Since the villain cards are redistributed each turn, your only goal if there are too many innocents to win is to not get killed that turn. Signups close on Tuesday at 10PM Central time. I will send out role cards for the first turn at that time. Players: Sinical card Zilary card Blank card Blank card Blank card Blank card Blank card Blank card Blank card Blank card
  3. I haven't quite figured out how to make this a 2 player Werewolf game, so if anyone knows someone else who would like to play, please extend an invite.
  4. If no one else does, sure. I can start signups this week and start the game next week.
  5. Is anyone lined up to do the next game?
  6. I honestly have no idea how the RPS mechanic worked for anyone else. All I knew was that I could change your RPS choice and that nobody could change mine. I technically wasn't a traitor. Traitors turn into villains if all the villains are killed. If Spirit died at any point, it was over. I'm actually a little surprised no one questioned if Spirit's claim was a bluff. Even if I wasn't the "fan", claiming you dreamed a random person as innocent is an easy claim when it's the last day.
  7. Zilary: At this point we're all picking paper because I said I would throw a rock. I have no reason to change what I'm throwing because whoever I throw it to loses and the other wins. They have no reason to pick anything but paper because they know they'll either have rock or be up against rock. If you aren't the killer, then everything is riding on who I throw a rock at. I'm going to throw the rock at the one least likely to be friendly.
  8. That still leaves it vague how the things in this grouping affect each other. I've claimed RPS choice modifier, Zilary has claimed to have disabled me. I know you can't speak to whether or not we're both telling the truth, but if we are, would I be notified and would she have disabled me before I changed Rift's RPS choice?
  9. Here's the rundown: 1. I got attacked last night and was successfully protected. 2. I got zero notification that my power was disabled. If Rift got a rock last night, I was not disabled. I confirmed with Sinical when I first got my role that you would indeed receive a message if my power worked. 3. Rift: Zilary is getting a rock tonight if she and I are both not executed. 4. Zilary got a rock the first night. 5. I change people's RPS selection. I've been setting "rock" each night and picking "paper" for myself each night so that there's a better chance I won't be killed. This isn't a pure disabler role, but the intent is clearly to disable (as it did to Rift last night). It's also why I felt safe volunteering that I wouldn't be picking rock the first night - I would certainly be targeted by the killer the second night, and I had a fair chance of defending myself while also being a lower value target if I failed.
  10. I am confused how you (Rift) know I got hit last night if you weren't the one who protected me, but I appreciate both your attempt and whoever was successful (I am not clear on if Spirit means her dreaming protected me, but if so, thanks). Regarding Mccraabi saying I didn't give a reason, I did: "Incremental". She is second on the name list after Rift, and since I randomly picked the first, I decided to move on to the second. I was planning to continue onward, but ran out of time online before Mcraabi responded. Based on everyone's claims: Vote: Zilary I will try to change this later if there is a reliable counter claim. Also, Rift, I can coordinate with you if you tell me who you want to protect.
  11. Fair enough. Unvote: Rift Vote: Mccraabi Not random, but incremental this time.
  12. I wonder if reading the "newspaper" is revealing in any way. I don't really have anything to go off of, so I will pick someone at random because it's day 2, and that's what we do on day 2. Vote: Shatnered Rift
  13. Apparently not. I had thought so too.
  14. Vote: Nobody Because everybody else was doing it. I'm going to take a gamble for tonight because I think it may help with info roles more than murderous roles: My selection will not be rock. I don't think anyone else should share any info on their choices tonight. This just makes me a likely target for innocents and a risky target for the killer who won't want to be caught by a Watcher-type role that has an improved chance of succeeding. If I lie and choose rock, you'll know by your results and I'll be seen as evil. If I'm telling the truth you know that scissors is either ties or beats my choice. Rock either beats or loses to my choice but doesn't tie. Paper ties or loses to my choice. Since it's narrowed down, you can choose whatever outcome pair works best for you.
  15. Probably a good idea to send reminders to everyone. I know I'm out of the habit of checking the forum daily, and I get the feeling that I'm not alone.
  16. I will play. The new start date works for me. Our gubernor has declared a special session, so I wasn't going to be able to play before Thursday. Noon JST is 10pm CST, 11pm EST, 9pm MST, 8pm PST and 3am UTC.
  17. People posted a lot more before you started saying that. Very suspicious.
  18. I have to assume that is the case. I see the same sort of piles at the houses and apartments of friends and family I'm close enough to that they don't feel the need to tidy up before inviting me over. It might be that my state (we do have "must be paper" laws for insurance, possibly other things) or the 2 counties I've lived in as an independent adult (didn't have the problem as a student in the third county I lived in, but I was a dependent, registered as living with my parents, and got piles there).
  19. I grew up almost entirely without video games. We weren't exactly poor, but my parents bought more house than Dad's peers, so several years I was eating bread with pizza sauce and leftovers, watching a black and white TV with a coat hanger for an antenna (the family TV was usually off limits), and reading the encyclopedia because it was more interesting than my parents' book selection at that age. When I got access to the family TV, I spent as much time as I could watching it. It's not quite the asceticism you're speaking of, but in retrospect, I found the limited access made it too much of a focus. TV became precious, and when finally the restrictions were gone, I spent too much time watching TV, playing games, etc. Over the years, I reached a saturation point where I realized the TV would get by just fine without me, and I was not really enjoying a lot of the games I was playing. Right now, I'm far from an ascetic lifestyle - I have a TV, 2 computers, a smartphone, 2 consoles (up from 0 a couple years ago), but I find it only becomes a focal point if I have something specific I want out of it. The TV only gets turned on if I want to do something - watch a new movie, watch a TV series I'm feeling nostalgic about, etc. The Wii, despite several games I haven't touched hasn't been turned on in months. On the other hand, the computer and smartphone are my links to the world. I do everything through them, and enjoy the lack of clutter they provide. Now, a dumb question for you - Electronics have never cluttered my life. Government, business and busybodies have. What are you doing that let you live your ascetic lifestyle without massive piles of paper when you come home? I separated it out one month and the stack of garbage that was pure advertisement was more than 2 13 gallon trash cans could hold, the mix of bills, tax information, "keep for your records" documents, and other such garbage was about a third of another 13 gallon trash can, and that was before getting into the things I had carelessly gotten myself into (eg. donating to charities). Incidentally, never donate to charities unless you can do it anonymously. They all abuse your contact information.
  20. That is awesome. And, yes, it works for those of us who don't put our faces in books.
  21. As feared, this year has started rough. I am beginning my hiatus early this year.

  22. Our new governor just declared a state of emergency and deployed the national guard for the storm that hasn't started yet. That's not foreboding at all. We're expecting an ice storm for the next 3-5 days.

  23. I'll be a standby or replacement.
  24. I didn't know Pikachu could learn Self Destruct.
  25. Yep. That was my role the third game. I'd be curious to see how this would play out with more players. With as few was there were, there was no real time for anything beyond analyzing 1-2 posts and speculating on the impact of inactivity. The aspect I liked best was the interaction between games where it mattered who died in which game. I would have liked there to have been a little more variability in between, though. Knowing for certain that Zodiac had to die was about like having a game run long enough that all but one player is cleared.
