What sides are there?

There are Wizards/Witches (no gameplay difference, just your personal preference) and Death Eaters. Voldemort is a special Death Eater: the rest of the Death Eaters know Voldemort, Voldemort doesn't know them. This is a pretty public game, and extensive backchanneling shouldn't be necessary. That being said DEATH EATERS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DIVULGE THEIR IDENTITIES TO VOLDEMORT, PUBLICLY OR PRIVATELY.

How do we win?

If you are a Wizard/Witch, you want to either enact a certain number of Muggle Protection Laws, depending on the total player count, or kill Voldemort.

If you are a Death Eater, you win when you enact x Pureblood Supremacy Laws, or Voldemort becomes Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement after the y DE policy has been enacted. (Again, x and y depend on the total player count, and will be updated.)

How do turns work?

I will be posting a randomized turn order, that is the order which you will be candidates for Minister of Magic. Upon becoming a candidate, you may choose an Undersecretary among those players that were not a member of the last government. All players will vote for that government by messaging me here, or on slack. Ties (if there are an even number of votes) count as rejections of that government, and the next Ministerial candidate starts over. If 3 failed governments happen in a row, the next policy is automatically enacted.

The moderator has a random selection of policy cards in the deck, Muggle Protection and Pureblood Supremacy. 3 are chosen, and secretly given to the Minister. The Minister dismisses one, and the remaining two are secretly offered to the Undersecretary. The Undersecretary secretly chooses one to enact, and the other is discarded.

Assassinations?

As Pureblood policies are enacted, Executive powers become available. These depend on the # of players, but with 9-10 they are as follows:

1st & 2nd: The Minister may ask the Moderator another character's identity.

3rd: The Minister selects the next candidate. After the special candidate, the Ministry goes back to the original order.

4th: The Minister must assassinate a player.

5th: Another assassination, and the Undersecretary gains the power to veto policies, discarding them both.

Honestly in my opinion/memory this is a bit more chill than WW and lower participation. Thread'll be shorter. Do recommend all read the previous secret hitler game thread. The rules and game were all new and we were confused and yelled at each other in a good way.

Plus what would the Internet be without a bunch of people on it accusing each other of being a Hitler?

(Or Voldemort in this case)

Roles have been distributed, you are all employees at the Ministry of Magic, and if you wanted to spice it up with a little bit of rp, now's the time to do it.

This is a public game, so backchanneling is allowed, but isn't nearly as necessary as in werewolf. You can play this game fine with little or no secret discussion.

Game'll start some time tomorrow with palmer choosing his first Undersecretary.

I vow to legalize dildo wands if elected Minister. Set my people (read: sexual deviants) free!

Dunkio.

Marcin says it with a twinkle in his eye, and duke is obliviated by an insane 360 dunk, never to be heard from again.

Dildo wands do not and would not exist.

It's impractical.

Even if someone wanted a dildo wand it would be nearly if not totally impossible to make. Wands are very tricky to put together. There's a reason they don't come in varying shapes and and widths.

Well hello! We've met before, haven't we? My name's Adam Trask.

The last time we spoke, I believe that I was working here in the Ministry as a Floo Network Efficiency Analyst for the Department of Magical Transportation. My, a lot has changed in all those years. I've had quite a run of promotions since then, in fact, I'm now the head of the Department of Magical Transportation, would you believe it? I can't believe it myself sometimes...

Well I never thought I'd be moving up the ladder at the Ministry, but this is my life now, and hopefully someday I can be promoted to Minister of Magic! It's a big goal, but I think with a little bit of luck, I can get there. I hope we can work together!

It was great to see you again after all of these years! Take care of yourself, and let's get together again soon, shall we? Too-da-loo!
