WW28: THE PEOPLE WIN, MR SCIENCE WINS, TES WINS!

There are worse ways to spend the time, but not many.

SETTING:
Image

Image

January, 1995. Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Image

Justice Lance Ito is presiding. Court is now in session.

RULES:
-No screenshots.
-No discussion of private mod communication or role assignment PMs.
-No anonymous e-mails.
-No copy/pasted Slack or PM transcripts.
-No personal attacks outside of the confines of the gameplay. Don’t be an asshole.
-Try to post AT LEAST twice per day phase: once to vote, and once to speculate, accuse, RP, or what you will.
-Will try to do one day/night cycle per day in the early stages but they'll get shorter as the game gets into the late stages.
-Slack will be the HPNWW slack so if someone can give me mod powers on there that'd be greatly appreciated.


Trying to get about 25-30+ people playing this game.

THE PEOPLE:
Kato Kaelin - SQUATTER - This F-List Hollywood cliche isn't good for anything other than getting stoned and staying at the party too long. Three times per game, Kato can squat in another player's house. If Kato is the day's lynch, then the player he squats on will take his place. Bummer.
Marcus Allen - WORST DUDE - Thanked OJ for his mentoring at USC... by fucking his wife. Ugh... who does that? Each night, Marcus Allen can pick one member of The People to protect. If that player is lynched the following day, the final player to cast a vote for the protected player will be lynched instead. Marcus Allen cannot protect the same player twice in a row, and cannot protect themself.
Dennis Fung - BITING WOLF - This dimwitted forensics specialist is nothing if not sloppy. He does, however, have a particular talent for convincing people to help the LAPD. Once per game, Henry can turn a Simpson player to LAPD by biting them twice. Players will not know they were bitten, but after the first bite, Dennis Fung's identity, along with three random players, will be given to Barry Scheck.
Chris Darden - MINION - Chris Darden does not know the identities of The People, but The People know his identity. The People are forbidden from revealing themselves to Chris Darden.
Marcia Clark - SORCEROR - Cold and calculated, Marcia Clark can scan any player with 100% accuracy. So if Marcia scans a player who Fuhrman is framing that night, she will still see their true role. Marcia Clark does not know the identities of The People at the start of the game, but is encouraged to seek them out.
LAPD - WOLF - These crooked pieces of shit are regular wolves.

OJ SIMPSON:
Al Cowlings - BEST DUDE - A true friend who would follow OJ to the death. Each night, Al Cowlings can pick a player to protect from a night kill. If The People attack that player, Al Cowlings will die, taking down a randomly selected member of The People with night killing abilities (LAPD, Kato Kaelin, Marcus Allen, Mark Fuhrman, or Dennis Fung) along with him. Cowlings cannot protect the same player twice consecutively, and can only protect himself once per game. If Cowlings protects himself and is attacked, there will be no night kill and no retaliation kill that night.
Johnnie Cochran - SEER - Johnnie Cochran is a standard seer. Cochran can scan one player each night and will get a reading of The People or OJ Simpson.
Robert Shapiro - BACKUP SEER - Robert Shapiro takes over as seer if Johnnie Cochran dies.
F. Lee Bailey, Alan Dershowitz - MASONS - These law machines are the masons.
OJ Simpson - ELDER - A hall of fame running back, this man won't get taken down so easily. It takes two attacks from the wolves to kill OJ Simpson, and three bites from Dennis Fung to convert him.
Citizen - VILLAGER - These are regular villagers.

NEUTRAL
Homesick Juror - TANNER - Alright, fuck this shit. Juror has been away from their family for months. This trial isn't stopping anytime soon. The Homesick Juror's win condition is to be lynched during a day phase. If they succeed, they must kill someone who voted for them in retaliation. If they do not submit a choice to the mods by the end of the next night phase, a random voter will be selected. If the Homesick Juror dies as a result of getting squatted on or being the last vote on a worst dude protected player, they would not have died as a result of a lynch, and will lose.
Barry Scheck - BOUNTY HUNTER - Barry Scheck isn't the star of the defense, but he plays a very important role. Barry Scheck's win condition is to identify Dennis Fung. During any day phase, Barry Scheck can attempt to identify Dennis Fung. If he is successful, Fung will be removed from the game, and the day phase will turn to night. If he chooses incorrectly, he will lose, and will be removed from the game, although the day phase will not end. If Dennis Fung bites a player, Barry Scheck will be presented with a list of four players, one of whom is the real Dennis Fung. Scheck is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN from discussing this list with any other player or revealing this list in public, and there will be serious ramifications for doing so.

VOTING:
During a day phase, vote to lynch a suspected Werewolf by placing their name in bold and red
Code: Select all
[b][color=#FF0000]ecto[/color][/b]



To rescind a lynch vote already cast, place the name in bold and green
CODE: SELECT ALL
Code: Select all
[b][color=#00FF00]ecto[/color][/b]

LOVE the twist on my Bounty Hunter role, btw. I think you've made it a lot more winnable.

Luke wrote:aka mafia, if you've played it by that name before.

I can just tell everyone their roles and do secret voting via pm.

If you've never played, the players split into two teams, the larger group of villagers, and a smaller group of werewolves.

Each night, the werewolves conspire to kill one of the villagers, and during the day, the villagers (including the secret werewolves) vote to kill someone that they hope is a werewolf.


in this case, team "the people" are the werewolves, and team "oj simpson" are the village

it's a party game we play on the board and in slack. there are two phases of activity, 'night' when then secretly evil team members conspire to wreck havoc usually through killing a player of their choice, and 'day' when the whole collective attempts to identify these evil doers and eliminate them from the game once per phase. the roles, as described above, ascribe special abilities to various players also assigned secretly.

like most games, the objective is to win. good wins by killing evil, and evil wins by dominating the populations such that killing everyone would be in their power.

it's fun and you should play.

It was winnable if you were (a) good and (b) not shook

I was good but, unfortunately, also shook

anyway I'm at the beach and only checking in between long bouts of drinking so when is this starting? can't really play til we get back

Just read up here and you'll get the idea.

Party game where we bluff each other and attempt to figure out whodunnit and democractically eliminate each other one by one in an attempt to win.

A bunch of us play all the time but we are always happy to have new people get involved, and I hope you do. :)
