HPN WEREWOLF (VILLAGERS TRIUMPHANT!)

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

aka mafia, if you've played it by that name before.

I can just tell everyone their roles and do secret voting via pm.

If you've never played, the players split into two teams, the larger group of villagers, and a smaller group of werewolves.

Each night, the werewolves conspire to kill one of the villagers, and during the day, the villagers (including the secret werewolves) vote to kill someone that they hope is a werewolf.

There's also the possibility of secret roles, too, if that's the kind of thing people are interested in.

List of 5 living villagers:
junebug
Legion
Cone
Guy Incognito
fox

7 dead villagers:
Cronos
stakeout
abs
Stuntman
Ampersand
separator
duke

2 dead werewolves:
Mr. Science
iambic

1 dead seer:
Klint

I'm down, though a lot of this sort of thing comes down to body language and visual cues

no tinychat for me

If it gets too huge for me to do via pm, that's a possibility, but we'll see how many interested parties there are vs. WOD roleplaying goofs.

I'd be into this, but probably not if it's done through PMs. We'd have to clear our boxes constantly.

The secret stuff doesn't have to be pm, I can get emails or whatever.

I just think it'd be more fun to have the public stuff all here.

Alright, one more shot to get more people.

If you haven't played it before, it's pretty simple to pick up, and you'll get to lynch Klint. That's got to be appealing to someone out there, right?

Can you go into more detail as to how this is played through a message board? That might get more people on board

I'm assuming he'd just send out the roles randomly via pm, and the mafia would also communicate via pm with each other. other than that everything could be in a public thread.

I'm in, Luke.

oh it's easy. you discuss it in the thread and everyone publicly votes in the thread. vote closes at a certain time. if you have a secret role you have to PM your action to whoever is running the game by the same time. then vote closes, everything is tallied, and the OP makes a post in the thread describing how everything shook out. it's a lot of fun

also i meant to say, I can't actually play this go because i'm about to be on the road for like three weeks or something. sry :(

Assuming the game running will remind us when actions have to be taken.

Oh, yeah.

So, everyone playing will be divided into two groups, with most people being villagers, and a smaller group being werewolves. Villagers only know that they're a villager, while the werewolves know every other werewolf. Like Legion said, you lose a bit by not seeing body language, so I'll probably assign a seer among the villagers to try and make it a little more fair for the villager side.

The game is played in alternating night and day phases. During the night, the seer can ask the identity of another player, and I will tell them truthfully. In addition, during the night, the werewolves will discuss privately among themselves who they're going to kill and let me know who they've decided. During the day, I announce the dead player, and everyone (the villagers and the werewolves pretending to be villagers) publicly discuss who they kill, majority vote wins.

This continues until either all the werewolves are dead, in which case the villagers win, or there are as many werewolves as villagers, cause it's pretty obvious how that will end.

The other villagers aren't allowed to know who the seer is, right? Used to play this at summer camp all the time. It's coming back to me now.

The seer looks like any other villager, although that isn't stopping people from figuring it out on their own. Obviously outing yourself as the seer early on gets you killed pretty fast.

Yeah, the seer is the werewolf version of the detective. There are a bunch of other roles you can do, but I thought I'd keep them simple for the first go around.

That being said, I've put the players in an excel sheet, put a random number in the next column, and sorted to mix everyone's name up. The top name is the seer, the bottom two are werewolves. I'm pming them as we speak, and they can get back to me with their answers for the night phase.
