    Default (Mafia/Werewolf) Beware of Bites!

    2020, unknown city in the middle of Russia. Simple folk, going by their daily lives ignorant of the evil that has come to town. A body is found in the snow, torn apart, its heart disappeared- but no blood to be found, their face twisted in a strange smile.
    It's up to the concerned citizen (and, you know, the police) to find who did such an horrible crime- and how. Before everybody dies, possibly, though the evil won't mind that detail.


    *****

    This will be a game of Werewolf (no actual mafia inside) for which the rules can be found here.
    Spoiler: Summary of rules anyway
    Show
    To sum it up a majority of players will play the Town side, where you try to discover who the wolves are and lynch them, using the Day Phase to pick someone to lynch. Town doesn't know each other. During Night Phase, they'll be able to use their powers to hopefully get the edge required to win.

    A minority will play the Evil side, who's objective is to kill all townies or make it the inevitable outcome, and are capable of killing someone each Night Phase regardless of their personal abilities. During Day Phase, they'll have to make sure not to tip off the townies. Evils know each other.

    Day Phase and Night Phase are 48 hours periods, during the former people will talk between them and who wants will vote someone to get them lynched. At the end of the phase, the one with most votes will be eliminated- in case of a tie, the one who reached it first in the day will die.
    During the latter people can still talk to each other but not vote- though everyone will have a personal power to use.

    Private messaging can be done through PMs or preferably through the QuickTopic site- you will be sent a link when the game starts. I must always be included in every topic and PM, and your personal conversations with me CANNOT BE SHARED to prove your identity or some such thing.


    Spoiler: Example of Roles
    Show

    Spoiler: Town
    Show
    The Crazy One: You perceived the Evilest One right off the bat. And you got thrown in jail for attacking them when nobody believed you. Well, jokes on them! You got pulled out and are now enjoying an escort, assuming you can provide results. Town Human Role. Each night you pick a player- you learn if they are a Monster or a Human. Each time you find a Monster, you can survive a night kill- immunity doesn't stack though. Due to the lingering effects of the Evilest One you don't know what monster they are or their faction.

    The Doubting Cop: Yeah, right, Evilest One. Pfffft, idiots, even your partner. But you've been friends for so much, you won't abandon them even if they are CLEARLY wrong. Town Human Role. You start knowing who the Trusting Cop is. In addition, you can (very begrudgingly) take suspects in, stopping them from doing anything that night. If the Trusting Cop dies, you go mad with rage- you lose your power and instead gain a kill power which you MUST use each night.

    The Trusting Cop: You've always believed in this stuff, but now that you've got proof you won't stop until you catch all the evil monsters. Good thing your partner didn't bail on you, or you wouldn't be able to hold it together. Town Human Role. You start knowing who the Doubting Cop is. Each night, you may shadow a player and learn who they target and from whom they are targeted. If the Doubting Cop dies, you fall into despair and the lingering energy of the Evilest One overtakes you- you switch sides from Town to Evil.

    The Doctor: All these people coming in with such terrible wounds, you never saw something like that. While it makes your work harder, you have no intention of letting anybody die- and while you're at it, this is also an interesting case study. Town Human Role. Each Night pick a player, that one can't be killed for the night (you'll be told wether you save someone or not). In addition, as long as you are alive when morning comes there will be a public announcement that reveals which roles killed the victims, if there are any.

    The Redempted Cultist: You were once a follower of the Evilest One. You grew horrified of his acts and ran away, scared and betrayed. Now that he's been defeated, you're willing to risk your life to defeat his spawns, using his own teachings. Town Monster Role. Each Night pick a player. That player either gets a one-time use of a stronger power or one-time double use, depending on who you targeted.


    Spoiler: Neutrals
    Show
    The Playful Spirit: You were a child that died when a game on a roof went south. Since then, you kept on wanting to play- you don't care about anything else. Neutral Monster Role. You have four different powers, that you can use once each in the whole game. You win when you use up all your powers and have played to your heart's content or when you get to the end of the game, which one happens first.
    - Play with me! One player can't act that night.
    - Play together! Two player switch targets for the night.
    - Play with them! Pick two players, the first targets the second.
    - Play alone! Pick a player, that one is immune to night kills.


    Spoiler: Evils
    Show
    The Lycanthrop: You are the king of beasts. When you accepted that pact, energy filled you restoring you to new vigor and beyond. With your gigantic size, muscles thick as humans and claws as long as arms you stand at the top of the food chain and anybody that tries to challenge you will NOT walk away. You can only be Night-Killed by a Monster. In addition, if you die your killer dies too- if you die for a Day-Lynch, a random voter dies too, excluding other Evils.


    There is no max number of players. The recruiting will end in 14 days- for any question feel free to ask.

    Player List:
    1. Unavenger
    2. Rogue_alchemist
    3. Snowblaze
    4. Book Wombat
    5. JeenLeen
    6. AvatarVecna
    7. Lord Athos

    9. gac3
    10. Apogee1
    11. Elenna
    12. JoyWonderLove
    13. Aventine
    14. Bunny of Faith
    15. CaoimhinTheCape
    16. Logan1996

    Spoiler: Additional rules or clarifications:
    Show

    - No impersonating other people on the QuickTopic site (though I don't actually think it would happen);
    - Factions are Town and Evils, Human and Monster are kinds of roles not tied to factions. Some powers have different effects on one or the other;
    - Roleblocking takes priority over protecting. Meaning that if the Doubtful Cob blocks a killer and the Doctor protects the killer's prey, at the Doctor it'll result that they didn't stop anything since the kill attempt never happened;

    If you refer to "no actual mafia inside" that was a reference to the fact that the Evils are all roles referencing supernatural beings. I don't know the differences among the two games honestly, only played Werewolves before coming to this community.q

    No the first game I was in was the X-men themed one and the second is the Villians game, so this is the first that is actually true werewolves and not a variation on the theme. The others are fun, but nothing can replace the original.

    Don't worry, next time. Unless this turns out a complete fiasco and I fail to understand why, I should run another one eventually xD

    Alright then, glad to hear that- though I should specify that not all the Evils are necessarily wolves (as you can see from the Trusting Cop, though that one starts Town)

    Good, didn't want to disappoint you xD it's Town vs Evils (which are the wolves faction), with maybe Neutrals if there are enough players.

    It's not a Mafia game until AV joins.

    Until then, we're basically just playing shadow puppets with each other.

    Paranoid, presumptive, backstabbing, shadow puppets.

    This will make the game much harder if a townie dies for EVERY lycanthrope killed. I can understand at night, but with daytime lynching that is a bit much.

    There won't be multiple of them though. I put one as example, given that there's less Evils then Town I figured I wouldn't make more examples of that faction.

    Also yeah, it would be heavily umbalanced.

    Added a few more examples- keep in mind that these could be altered, or missing. I'm unlikely to put neutrals with 10 players, for example.

    Yeah, I'm in actually I realized shortly after my last post that we were guaranteed the win if I used my strongman kill that night, but figured I'd wait till it was officially over to join, just in case.

    I was going to make some remark about you signing up twice, but technically you never said you were in the first time.
    I have returned.

    Werewolf games lost: 6

    Games as neutral: 2

    I have no clue what Iím doing, but you still shouldn't trust me.
