HPNWW #9 The Oracle of Thanatos Game Over Evil Wins

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

Postby werd » Wed Dec 02, 2015 11:01 pm

Day breaks at the Oracle of Thanatos. This is the third day of the siege and all cultists are feeling optimistic. Word has reached you that the besieging army does not have enough supplies for a lengthy siege. This combined with your impenetrable defenses means all you have to do to survive this attack is wait.

It seems as though life will proceed as normal. You will continue to sacrifice the weak and infirm among you to confer with Thanatos god of Death.

The peaceful morning is shattered by a blood-curdling scream. Cultists come rushing from all over the temple towards the source of the disturbance. They find a grisly sight, the Abbott dead in her chamber, her servant weeping at the foot of the bed.

The weapon protruding from her chest is unmistakable, a Greek doru. A note scrawled in blood hangs from the end of the spear.

“Your defenses may be mighty you perversions of nature but now we walk among you. You shall all perish unless you surrender at once unconditionally. We will grant you each an honorable death if you do. If you chose not to this will be each of your fates.”

All cultists look to each other with horror. You know that those responsible walk among you. Best find them and offer them up to Thanatos before they make short work of you.

ROLES:


GOOD


High Priestess/Priest:

This is the high priestess/priest of the cult. The HP may speak with the gods each night to ask the true identity of a player. The gods will tell the HP if that player is a Cultist or Greek. There is one condition. The HP requires the fresh blood of a human sacrifice to commune with the gods. If there is a day with no sacrifice the HP will not be able to use their power the following night. (These are traditional seers from previous games with a twist. If there is a no sacrifice day the HP loses their ability the following night.)

Evzones:

The Evzones are the elite guards of the Oracle. If killed at night or sacrificed by day the Evzones will use their great skill in combat to take the life of another with them. (These are the hunters from previous games, however the retaliation kill for the Evzones is mandatory.)

Inner Circle:

The Inner Circle are the top member of the cult. They know each other’s identities and that all other members of the Inner Circle are Cultists. (These are the Masons from previous games. Any public mention of the term Inner Circle OR Mason will result in immediate death by Moros or Apate.)

Cultists:

(These are the villagers.)


EVIL


Greeks:

These mercenaries have been hired to eradicate the Oracle of Thanatos. They don’t care why; they just care about getting paid. They will know the identity of all other Greeks and are expected to collaborate. (These are the wolves.)

Traitor:

This is a Cultist who has accepted a sizeable bribe from the other oracles to help the Greeks defeat the Cultists. The traitor will know the identities of the Greeks but the Greeks will not know the identity of the traitor. The traitor is not allowed to reach out directly to the Greeks. The traitor is a regular cultist and will read as such to the HP. (These are standard minions.)


Supplementary


Entheogen Addict:

Being a death cult a number of the members of your society are constantly high on entheogens. Occasionally an addict may stop using the drugs and awaken to discover they are not what they appeared to be. (This is the drunk from previous games with a twist. The Entheogen Addicts will wake up to their true roles at different intervals. These intervals will not be made public knowledge. The Entheogen Addict will be under the impression they are Cultists until the time that they awaken. If an Entheogen Addict dies before they awaken their true role will NOT be revealed upon death, they will be identified as a Cultist.)


Game mechanics:


Fog of War:

Due to the confusing nature of a city under siege and at war at no point will the total number of any role be made public knowledge. This means there could be any number of the roles listed at all times. Upon death a player’s role WILL be revealed. This game will be balanced appropriately and players will have to use their understanding of revealed roles and usual game compositions to project the expected number of roles remaining.

There is a way the Cultists can clear the fog of war. No more will be explained about this and any public questions regarding fog of war in the game thread will result in immediate death just like mason or inner circle.

Naked Wrestling:

This is the exact same mechanic as dueling from Harry Potter WW but styled for Ancient Greece. The winner collects the vote of the loser and the loser is silenced until the day ends. If the loser had previously voted that vote is struck unless they possessed multiple votes in which case only their original vote is struck. Credit to stakeout for the idea.


ITEMS:


The Cursed Amulet of Protection:

This is an amulet. You pass it during the day by PM to Moros indicating whom you want to pass it to. It does something. Public discussion of the amulet will result in death.


Tub of Grease:

The tub of grease will give the holder a distinct advantage in any naked wrestling they might partake in. It can be won by defeating the holder in naked wrestling. This is the only advantage the tub of grease brings. Talk about the tub of grease all you want.


General Rules and Guidelines:


This game will begin with a day phase to allow the Cultists an opportunity to sacrifice someone to grant the HP vision for night one if they choose to.

If you are observed not following the win conditions or guidelines of your role the moderator will immediately remove you from the game from your first offense. There will be no warning beforehand; you’ll just be taken out right away.

Days will end at 1800 PST daily. Night phases will last a maximum of 4 hours following. If there are international players for whom these hours are difficult it will be acceptable to submit night roles early.

Players are not permitted to pass along information or communicate with players still in the game after their death has been announced in the main thread.

Players may not share information gathered from the moderator. This includes role PMs from the start of the game, or answers to role-specific questions or game scheduling.

Using screenshots as evidence is not acceptable and if the moderator is presented with proof that you used them, you’ll be removed from the game immediately.

If I find out you are blatantly disregarding the rules or exploiting some sort of loophole I’ve neglected to find, you’ll be removed from the game.

Be Active. If you do not vote for 3 consecutive voting cycles, the moderator will remove you from the game.

To summarize the things that talking about will get you killed: Fog of War and its mechanics, The Cursed Amulet of Protection, The Inner Circle, the word mason.

you know how in the irl version of this game the best tell is in the very beginning when you see the slight disappointment on their face when they realize that they're just a villager/cultist

Hoo boy!

Naked wrestling was Michalis Vanceros's favorite sport. He quickly got down to the arena and snagged a front row seat with a thingy of wine and a bucket of roasted chickpeas, ready for action.

By the time he got to the arena the match was over.

Ah, shucks. Guess I'll take my chickpeas and wine over to the hilltop grove and hang a while.

Kenny Poweroupolos looked out across the small but glorious territory he and the other worshippers of Thanatos had erected. It had been hard but the fruits of their labor were a thing of beauty.

I honestly can't believe these Greek fuckers are going to come in here and shit on us like this. Can't wait to find one and sacrifice him, maybe get some of that dank spanakopita that I saw down at the agora to eat while I watch all these wrestling matches. Wonder if this palmeros stick guy has the tub o grease.

Kenny decides to stop making obvious Greek references, but continues to look for suspicious looking cultists.

Well the gods haven't reached out to me so I'm either a hopeless addict or just a Cultist who loves partake in sacrifice.

I'm a demigoddess. My dad's the devil. I'm sweet tho, just don't get me all fired up. I hate getting all sweaty, one of my least favorite parts of being part human.

If we want our high priestess to communicate with the gods we need to offer up a ritual sacrifice. Who would look the best up there on the altar? I'm thinking...Oh idk...stakeout maybe?
