Resistance (Good Wins)

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

Let's give this another shot.

Come in here if you want to play a game that's not unlike werewolf, but it'll be a lot shorter than the big games, and there's no elimination. Probably starting Monday, I can't imagine it'll overshoot Friday.

Theme will be Arthurian Legend, in keeping with the role names. Good players will be Loyal and True Knights of the Round Table, evil players will be followers of Mordred.

Turn order:
palmer
snatch
TUE
doritopassion
snitch
bread
Catullus

4 Good (including Merlin and Percival)
3 Evil (including Morgana and Assassin)

Number of Knights needed for each Quest:
2 3 3 4* 4
(The fourth quest needs two failure cards to be sabotaged)

Team suggestions will be blue and bold.

Code: Select all

Vanilla resistance plays as follows:

Every player is a member of the resistance, like the villagers in werewolf. Hidden among these resistance members are spies, this game's version of the werewolves.

The game consists of a series of missions. If the good guys manage three successful missions, they win. If the spies can sabotage three missions, they win.

Each mission will have a required number of players on that individual mission, and a leader. That leader suggests a team, and everyone votes yes or no on that proposed team.

If the majority of the players reject the suggested team, the next player becomes the leader, and suggests a team of their own. If 5 suggested teams for the same mission are rejected, the bad guys automatically win.

If the majority of players approve the team, then the team members (and only the team members) let the moderator know the results of the mission. Good members of the resistance can only return a successful mission. Spies can either go along with the successful mission, or sabotage it. It only takes one sabotage vote to fail a mission.

Avalon roles:


Merlin (Good): Merlin knows all of the evil characters. They do not know who Merlin is.

Percival (Good): Percival will be informed of two players; Merlin, and Morgana. They will not know which is which.

Assassin (Evil): If the Assassin can identify Merlin at the end of the game, evil wins.

Morgana: (Evil): Morgana will appear as Merlin to Percival at the beginning of the game.

An important note to realize when using the roles:

Evil can steal the game by just guessing Merlin at the end. This is often a sucker punch to the Knights, who thought they were playing scot-free, and seems unfair.

I cannot stress the importance of actively deceiving the Assassin during the game.

Not during the game, no, but if you end up being the assassin, you can get a coup de grace at the end to win it, assuming he's Merlin.

There's less backchanneling, pretty much all you'll need is right in front of you in the public channel.

That being said, it's a lot more necessary to contribute than it is in ww, where you can slide past for a while unnoticed. You don't have to be constantly keeping up with everyone, but with less people, and more of a need to be proactive, you need to be present frequently.

So, to answer your question, less total time, but it's important you're regularly voting.

Okay, I'll put you on the list, but this game is definitely not one where people can flake.

Not saying you're gonna flake, but I haven't seen you in the werewolf threads.

you guys it's totally cool and fun to put real life on hold in order to play a game on the internet

even better if it starts negatively impacting your job, relationships, and health

that's how you know you're doing it right
