Werewolf XXX: Shinra, Dyne, Mr. Dolphin WIN

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

You look up. You know better than to think you’re going to see a blue sky.

But you do it anyway, instinctually, knowing full well what’s up there: the bottom of the Mako reactor here in Midgar, the only city you’ve ever called home.

You kick a stone through the slum, dingy and dangerous in the shadows of the reactor above, and ask yourself, not for the first time: Is Shinra evil? Or just stupid as fuck?

When you write it out on paper, it makes no goddamned sense: Mako comes from the Lifestream -- a vast river of spiritual energy that contains the sum of all living things on the Planet. Everyone is endowed with a piece of it. Everyone gives that energy back to the Lifestream when they die. Everyone needs that energy to live.

And Shinra’s extracting it from the earth, piece by piece.

After a while, you hit your limit. You were about to break. That’s why you joined AVALANCHE. They call you “eco-terrorists” in the papers, but you know better: you’re saving the goddamn world.

And today is the big day. The first day of Project PISS (Purge Irritating Shits at Shinra). The day when you’re going to start taking out the leadership of the most powerful company on Gaia, one by one.

What you don’t know is ...











They’re onto you.

Welcome to Werewolf XXX.

ALL RULES CAN BE FOUND IN THIS GOOGLE DOCUMENT:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ie9dO6_w4TqII3WAT29xxnMd-BjO63uHr1PDu1bkRXc/edit



It is well worth your time to read them. Among the big things here:

-- The core mechanics of the game have been fucked with. A lot.
-- Days and nights are both going to run longer than they usually do.
-- This is a no-backchannel game, with specific named exceptions.
-- We'll start a week from today, Sunday, December 11.

i daresay i'm one of the busier AND one of the lazier people here

so long as you can post once or twice every couple of days, and keep up with a few posts from others, you'll be fine. some people go 13/10 with the intensity but i had a blast playing my last game where i set myself at a solid 3/10

i mean it's still a Werewolf game

but if you're down to make a few roleplay posts, laugh at whatever the shit is happening itt, and maybe attempt to win if you're down with it, you're good

like, i feel like what turns a lot of people off of WW is the frenetic pace & the constant private haranguing/communications. neither of those is really extant in this game, by design. you might get chastised if someone's annoyed at you but that's about it

Good because my Helpful Tip #1 was going to be to be doubly suspicious of everyone who eagerly offers to help you.

:twisted:

Werewolf is the party game alternately called Mafia, if you wanna look it up on wikipedia. The online game Town of Salem is werewolf-inspired as well, if you happen to be familiar with that.

I don't have the time for this, but I will enjoy watching all of you play. Great theme.
