Resistance: Harry Potter - everyone is banned

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

Hi I'm running a game of Resistance as a substitute for real life

It's going to basically be Resistance Avalon but the roles are Harry Potter themed because seriously what the fuck were you expecting

I am going to kill one player midway through the game for some imagined reason. I wish sincerely that I could kill all of you but that wouldn't be reasonable

Role descriptions are up and PMs have been sent out to notify people of their roles. If you did NOT receive a PM you are either a Hogwarts Student, Neville Longbottom, or Harry Potter.

The game doesn't start until Saturday to allow for preparation and backchanneling. If you need a Slack invite let me know. Backchanneling is not required but I do think it will make your lives easier.

Questions can be asked and will be answered in the thread.

Fucking with people emotionally is encouraged. Screenshots are not allowed.

If you want to know more about what I’m talking about look here: http://forums.hipinion.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=91718

Team Good: be mindful of the fact that if Malfoy can identify Dumbledore at the end of the game they automatically win

Team Evil: fuck shit up

Premise (stolen & slightly modified from Luke's thread)

Every player is a member of Dumbledore's Army, like the villagers in werewolf. Hidden among these DA members are Death Eaters, this game's version of the werewolves.

The game consists of a series of missions. If the good guys manage four successful missions, they win. If the Death Eaters can sabotage four 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. When on a proposed team, Team Evil members should include their mission success/fail vote along with their yes/no vote for if the team is approved.

Even though you submit your vote directly to Luke or me, votes WILL be made public once they have all been received.


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 Dumbledore's Army can only return a successful mission. Death Eaters can either go along with the successful mission, or sabotage it. It only takes one sabotage vote to fail a mission.

Team Requirements:
4 6 5 6* 5 6* 6
*the mission requires two failure votes to fail

Mission 1: SUCCESS
Mission 2: SUCCESS
Mission 3: SUCCESS
Mission 4: FAILURE

Team Good: 2 (Longbottom has been identified)
Team Evil: 1 (Quirrell has been identified)


Roles

Good:

Hermione (fka Merlin): Hermione knows all of the evil characters except for Voldemort.

Ron (fka Percival): Ron will be informed only of Malfoy, Hermione, and Quirrell. They will all appear to him as Hermione.

Dumbledore: Neville Longbottom and Malfoy appear to Dumbledore as Longbottom. If Dumbledore can identify Quirrell, 1 failed mission is removed from Team Evil's score - but he only gets two tries (he can make his guesses at any point in the game via PM to me or Luke).

Neville Longbottom: Will not know he's Neville Longbottom. Votes count twice. Because it takes only one failure vote to sabotage a mission, Longbottom's double vote has no impact on whether a mission is a success. It is useful, however, for voting yes or no on teams.

Hogwarts Students

Evil:

Voldemort (fka Mordred): Votes count twice. If he can correctly identify Neville Longbottom, 1 successful mission is removed from Team Good's score - but he only gets two tries (he can make his guesses at any point in the game via PM to me or Luke). If any member of team good (except for Snape, Potter, and Longbottom) correctly identifies Voldemort while on a team/mission with him, Voldemort will die. You get only one chance and you must choose after the team has been approved but before the results are revealed. Again, you must be on a team with the person you are accusing.

Quirrell: (fka Morgana): Quirrell will appear as Hermione to Ron at the beginning of the game.

Malfoy (fka Assassin): Malfoy will appear as Hermione to Ron and as Longbottom to Dumbledore at the beginning of the game. If Malfoy can identify Dumbledore at the end of the game, evil wins.

Pettigrew (fka Oberon): Evil character who doesn't know who the other Evils are, and they do not know who he is.

Pansy Parkinson: Can use her talent for gossiping to discover the makeup of any one mission's success/failure votes (useful for locating Pettigrew and/or determining Snape's allegiance).

Neither:

Snape (fka Lancelot sorta): Player chooses his or her side at the start of the game. He appears good to team good and evil to team evil.

Harry Potter: Appears evil to good and good to evil. Vote doesn't count. Is a fucking loser. If the pensieve is used on him, he appears as Voldemort. Doesn't know he's Harry.

Neville Longbottom, Harry Potter, and Hogwarts Students will not receive role PMs

Items:

Nagini: Voldemort can use Nagini to veto one team during the course of the game. Once vetoed, the mission will be cancelled and the next person in line will form a team.

Only Dumbledore has control of the two items below. They can each be used only twice.

The Pensieve: Dumbledore can use the pensieve to scan a team to find out the role of one of its members. However, each member of the team has an equal chance of being scanned (meaning he may not learn anything new). Dumbledore can PM the scan request to either me or Luke after a team has been approved. IF the scan happens to land on Snape, he will not get an answer. Voldemort and Harry both appear as Voldemort.

The Elder Wand: Dumbledore can use the wand to change one team member's vote to a success vote (he will have to choose the target prior to learning whether the mission failed or succeeded).

question:if I play this and allow you to torture and kill me slowly will this sate your bloodlust and allow you to play werewolf games with me in the future without feeling a need to kill me indiscriminately?

Logic helps, but also just trickery is fine.

Less damaging than the last ww game, that's for sure.
