HPN WEREWOLF #4: Village WINS 2nd place after GRAMMATRON

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

The cool thing is we not only have a large pool of interested players but several people willing to moderate, so we can play a bunch of these games while still allowing everybody to cycle in and out. Nobody gets burned out and we don't all play against the same people all the time and become too predictable to each other.

If Slack is used again, there could def be improvements that would make it more stable.

* There should absolutely be a ghost free zone from the start.
* The moderator should be added to all private groups so they can keep tabs on all semi-public player activities.
* Ghostchat should still exist but they should operate with the same amount of info as the living to make it more speculative.
* I'd also highly encourage everyone to hide your online status so you can respond to things at your own pace.

Doing these thing would give it the same function as board PMs without the snail's pace and need to delete/organize stuff.

Fully agreed.

when this first got going on the board i read the wikipedia of the game and the creator was quoted saying "if the villagers have pen and paper they will never lose" and i kind of feel like the spreadsheets and (moreso) the Slack double down on that

I mean the SK thing kinda ruined Alice's big bloodbath plan. Which was either my fault or fuckles' fault or Pierrot's fault or nobody's fault. The SK probably would've given the wolves a fighting chance, especially considering how "questionably" the village played for the first few days.
THIS IS TOTALLY UNEXCEPTABLE.

Smaller games will be better than rebalancing.

It's fun to play with a lot of roles, too, but that means the Aura Seer becomes too powerful.

Well, like I said, I'm gonna be doing smaller games, so there'll be less roles of all kinds when I'm running it in the future.

I like the idea of smaller games with less roles but I hope we don't entirely do away with the big games with tons of crazy roles. That stuff adds a lot of fun and unpredictability, even if in this particular game basically no one got to use a crazy role power.

Would be fun to one day try a game with a third faction. I've read that vampires are sometimes added and function that way.

One variation of the rules is the wolves turn a villager every third night instead of killing them. Seems like the obvious way to go if we were doing a vampire gimmick instead (or in addition).

Sc2 mafia has a third faction called "cult" which easily can be equated to vampires. I believe their default setting allows them to convert one person to cult every other night and have a max cult size of 1/3 rd the remaining players. They are a bitch to hunt down because they keep breeding.

They also eventually added a fourth faction called triad that's a mafia clone faction so you can have mafia vs mafia at night

No worries. Just hope you enjoyed reading your deathlore as much as we enjoyed writing it.


You were my Night 3 scan, actually. Should've waited a day apparently. :lol:
