    Default The Wolf Game - Stranded in space - Blackout

    The Wolf Game - Stranded in space



    The smell of smoke permeated the air as the life support systems could no longer scrub the artificial atmosphere fast enough to keep up with the demands placed on it. The alarms had been blaring continuously for hours and it seemed that everyone was too busy to shut them off... Or there was no one left alive with the clearance to do so. Every once in a while gunfire could be heard along the vast corridors of the battleship as the crew fought relentlessly against the traitors that had thought they could take the ship easily. An explosion rocked the ship and not for the first time the survivors hoped nothing critical went with it.

    The captain along with a few other crew members had managed to reach the bridge after an entire day of fighting. With most of the systems down and the ship running on auxiliary power the elevators were rendered useless. Which made navigating the massive ship a major pain especially when maniacs that thought they could hijack an alliance battleship welded doors shut in your path and fought you every step of the way. The traitors had struck during the ships night cycle when most of the crew was asleep. They had introduced some kind of worm in the ships systems that made everything aside from life support and a few other critical systems malfunction. Now two and a half million tons of technology was nothing more than a strangely shaped rock drifting along in space.

    After breaching the doors to the bridge the small group that accompanied the captain spread out to assess the situation. Another similar team had hopefully managed to take over the ships core by now and would be restoring full power to the ship. The captain sat in his chair trying to decipher the mess of information that scrolled on his screens. The blaring of the alarms kept going at full strength and it was starting to get on his nerves.

    "Someone deactivate those bloody alarms."

    "Yes sir!" The reply came from a young lieutenant that normally worked at a gun battery.

    As the captain started making sense of the status readouts on his screens the alarms died down and an eerie silence took their place as only the sounds of his companions working to restore systems on the bridge could be heard. All they could do now with the limited capabilities they had was attempt to scrub the worm from the computers and pray the other team would succeed in their mission... their contingency plan was just too terrible to contemplate.


    Spoiler: RULES
    Show
    The game is played in turns that consist of two different phases.
    There's a day phase that happens from dawn ‘til dusk in game. This period typically lasts 48 hours (certain abilities, items or events may alter the duration). During this time all the players try to decide who the Traitors are by voting for them. Votes are done in red text. You may change your vote if you wish, in which case, you should edit your previous post and strike-through your previous vote. Once the day has ended, whoever has the most votes is removed from the game (Lynched).

    Note: In the event of a tie no one gets lynched!

    The 25% Rule is in effect!

    Auto-lynches: If a player fails to vote for three day phases, they will die a terrible death. If you cannot post for whatever reason for longer periods of time please notify me in advance.

    The next phase is the night phase, which lasts from dusk ‘til dawn. This phase typically lasts 24 hours (certain abilities, items or events may alter the duration). During this phase, anyone that has a special action to perform during that time does so via PM. This is the phase of the game where the traitors decide who to kill.

    Events: There will be certain events during the day. They may or may not offer advantages to players. Usually events will be opportunities to acquire items.


    Spoiler: ROLES
    Show
    Spoiler: CREW
    Show
    Captain: You are the captain of the Invincible and your word carries extra weight. Your vote counts double.
    Vigilante: You have a concealed side arm with one last round. You can use it to kill someone at any time during the day. Doing so will immediately end the day and no lynch will occur.
    Engineer: One of the surviving ship engineers. You can repair or recharge one item during the night. You start with a random item.
    Marine: With enough fire power anyone can be safe... You can choose to protect one player during the night from being night killed. You can also choose to protect yourself.
    Psyker: You were part of a secret project to enhance humans. Although the program did not have the desired effects you can still scan the mind of other people during the night to determine their alignment (crew/traitor/neutral)
    Crew Members: Unremarkable members of the crew... or are they?

    Spoiler: TRAITORS
    Show
    Camouflage expert: During the night you can disguise yourself or another player as whatever role/alignment you choose. If a player is lynched with a disguise active that is the role that will be revealed on death. Also works on spy drones and other visual scanners. Does not work on psyonic abilities.
    Hacker: You can hack into the ships security system to spy on the crew. Once per night you can choose a player to spy on.
    Holographic technician: Once in the entire game, during the day phase, you can make a player look like another player to redirect the lynch on him.
    Secret Agent: Due to his disciplined mind he is immune to the Psykers ability. He is scryed as crew by the Psyker. This ability has no effect on espionage drones.


    There will be neutral roles but they will not be revealed... They're a surprise! Depending on the number of players there may or may not be other secret roles.

    I would recommend reading the rules as there are small variations from the generic stuff. I also want to make a small note about role playing. It's not mandatory but if you RP a character I will use that when the time comes for you to be featured in a narration. If you don't role play or offer any kind of background I reserve the right to turn your character into whatever my sick mind comes up with.

    If the Holographic Technician and the Vigilante go off on the same day, what happens?

    The Vigilante's kill is not a lynch but does replace the lynch so as far as the Technicians ability goes no lynch occurs and his power doesn't go off. He can obviously try another day. As far as timing goes, although the technician can pm his ability use at any time during the day it only goes off at the end of the day, if the day ends abruptly for whatever reason his ability isn't expended.


    Wohoo half-way through the minimum requirements already!

    5 more to go to reach the absolute minimum required!

    Assuming enough people sign up by then the game will start on Friday. If not the start will probably be delayed until Sunday.

    The 20 player mark was for the absolute minimum required. So you can join and if you have any more people that want to join as well, call them without a worry.

    Recruitment will probably end Sunday evening (GMT).
