    It would cut down on QT shenanigans, and honestly QT shenanigans have been rather unfun for people at times. Discord would make it a less...integral part of the game.
    Fair. Just wanted to point out that it applied times other than the one Bat gave.

    Nope. I was going to check it out but I pulled it up on my phone and bats started flying around the screen and that was weird.

    You can disable the bats. They are slightly amusing in first sight, but seriously annoying once you actually want to use the site.

    Ah. Then I may go back and check it out. It's good they used bats though. Spiders would have had me not even willing to disable.

    Okay guys, I'm working on a new set of roles for Percy Jackson 2. Last time it seemed to be a consensus that the wolves could have been stronger. So one of my ideas for the new game: Each "parent" has three possible powers. Two like last time assigned the same way and one passive power granted to any wolf with that parent. Thoughts on this idea in general? Once I have a full list, I plan to post it to get general feedback and questions.

    I think one problem the wolves had was that one neutral was specifically set up to kill one of them, with another having to kill/outlive one town and one wolf.
    The last one is okay but the first should not happen.

    The wolves also had some terrible luck. Snows fake claim that backfired, getting no kill for days, Jeen townsiding even when he had to kill me...

    I think the feedback for power usage also was more helpful for town than the wolves.

    Still, the basic setup was not that badly balanced and giving the wolves significant extra power could make them more powerful than expected. I'd rather remove or limit the QT access. The town network was both powerful and not fun for those left outside (at least that's my impression).

    Yeah. Rolling randomly and allowing the huntress to have any possible target might not have been the most balanced move.

    Rather than blanket limit QT's one of my ideas was to convert one of the regular roles to a QT sneak.

    I was worried about making the wolves too powerful which is why I was thinking specifically of doing passive powers but still wasn't sure. If it helps some of the examples for what I meant by that were like the following.

    Jupiter: If this role is in the game, they can choose what other Roman children are on the wolves.
    Minerva: You which roles from the OP aren't in the game.
    Mercury: At the end of each phase, you gain access to one QT made during that phase.
    Pluto: Choose either alignment or role. So long as you are alive, the chosen option will not be revealed on death.
    Demeter: You are mason with a townie who doesn't know you are a wolf.
    Vulcan: If you are alive, wolves can store kills to be used on a different night.

    But I may not go this route if it may make the wolves too powerful.

    Pluto seems too powerful. The death reveals are the only reliable info most town players will have. If it would be limited to the role, it might work.

    That's a fair point. I thought of it because of something someone said with regards to the resurrection but with me having removed the resurrection in general the comment is probably less relevant.

    That's true. The resurrection was overpowered last time. Especially since it was used on AV.

    The other powers are good, but not too powerful. The QT sneak power might get problematic, since it would either encourage players to spam QTs to decrease the chances of the power working, or to avoid creating QTs after the first day. So you should still think about something to balance that.

    Only tangential, but one of the reasons I suspected AV twice that game was that I was really expecting a "Child of Persephone" that would switch teams after dying.

    I actually came here to ask whether, with Quick Topics shutting down, we should consider copying some of the most memorable ones into their games at the end to preserve them? At the very least, if any of them are particularly worth reading, I'd like to be told so I can do so before they cease to exist.
    78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature.
    The cleric was walking through a forest when he heard a loud explosion. Upon investigation, he quickly uncovered the ruins of a large tower he couldn't remember seeing there before. He decided to search the rubble for anything worth looting. At that point, I told the wizard to start rolling to see if he would stabilise.

    Oh wait .. is the shut down permanent?

    It is! Oh no! I thought it was just like when the forums shut down...

    The sad fate of internet archives: a lot of history is about to get lost and there's basically nothing to be done about it.

    You should ask Flat-footed if you are allowed to do so ( regarding thread necromancy rules) if you think this would actually be useful.

    I'm not sure if the work/reward ratio is good enough to try.

    Oh, definitely, I'd only consider it if there was a game where dead chat or wolf chat were really worth having.
