Spoiler:
Hello knights, sires, kings, queens, and any of the common folk. You have all been invited to a grand party in the richest kingdom of all! There was only one requirement to join and a limitation. The first 16 to get in with an animal mask covering their face would be the only 16 participants in the greatest party of all the kingdoms! It was even said that a special party guest would gain all rights to the castle and even become the new ruler! And then so it was decided. As everybody rushed to the door there were many disappointed at the front door as the doors were quickly closed. There were 16 participants and they all gathered in the dining hall. Inside they saw a tall man wearing a mask of his own. It was a mask of the slithery animal, Snake. "Hello participants! You may all be wondering what type of party this is! You will all know in due time, for now though we suggest that you all come to terms with one fact. Only one of you is leaving this castle alive!" The party guests all looked at each other in alarm before a scared common folk spoke their question. "W-What do you mean by that exactly?" The Snake chuckled, "It means that if you wish to become the new ruler of these lands, you will have to kill the competition. The last person standing will be the winner of this entire dispute. We will finally lay to rest and trust that the new ruler will keep our people in safe hands." A daring participant challenged him. "You think we're just going to start swinging and killing each other? That's how you're going to get a new king or queen? Have 16 people slaughter each other mindlessly!?" The Snake pulled out a long silver sword and pointed it at them. "I assure you, there's rules. We have made sure that nobody will break them and that it will be fair and only the most skillful person will be the sole survivor." A confused intelligent person spoke up. "Why do you keep saying we? Are there others that are helping you puppeteer this entire... battle?" The Snake let out a small laugh and pulled out an Eagle mask. "Glad you asked." The Snake carefully placed the mask in front of them and their entire demeanor changed.
"We refers to both him and me! Of course we work as a team to ensure that you guys are going to go through with this. We will uphold each other's rules and stick close to our laws. Other then that, we won't interfere with the game unless there's a rule broken or we are needed to settle a dispute over who should die. Him and I, we're a team that's inseparable. Of course, you guys can see why I assume? Other than that, it's time to explain the rules! There are four phases......."

Roles:
Spoiler:
Augur

You are an Augur!
Death can never come too soon, for you there is new life in death. Those that die around you are merely wandering spirits, waiting for your guidance underneath your spiritual light. You offer repentance to all who dwindle on this plain of existence.

During the Action Phase, you may ask any dead players up to three questions divided (question length = 100 characters). The dead player may respond to each question(20 characters).
Three times per game, during the Action Phase, you may ask the moderator of the current game and ask 1 question about someone who is already dead. Questions against anyone who is currently alive will be ignored. The Moderator will not lie about what they tell you; the information is correct.


Barbarian

You are a Barbarian!
Across the land, your name is whispered in fearful corners and shouted from the peaks of mountains. Mighty conquerors seek mighty trophies, and the Kingdom is certainly a worthy trophy.

Three times per game, during the Dinner Phase, you may intimidate one player, preventing them from acting (challenging), however they must accept all challenges made against them. PM the Moderator to use this power.
Only you and the intimidated player will know they are intimidated. It will not be revealed unless they attempt to challenge somebody or deny a challenge.


Blackmailer

You are a Blackmailer!
Your hobby is certainly dirty- in that you dig up dirt. Research and preparation are the keys to success. Before you entered the castle, you were already familiar with every tidbit and secret embedded in the past of the other players- secrets that will make them cringe in fear and do your bidding.

During the Dinner Phase, you may blackmail two players. PM the Moderator to use this power.
Blackmailed players must partake in a challenge during the Challenge Phase, or will die.
Only the blackmailed players will know that they are blackmailed.


Blacksmith

You are a Blacksmith!
Steel flows like water under your steady gaze and steady flame. The pounding of your hammer crafts works of art and workers of war. One of your weapons in a hand guarantees victory.

At the beginning of the Action Phase, you will be notified of the intended winner(s) of the accepted duel(s).
Three times per game, during the Action Phase, you may change the winner of a duel. PM the Moderator to use this power. You may use this ability once on yourself.


Court Jester

You are a Court Jester!
Entertaining is your bread and butter, you live and breathe laughter and lightheartedness. Capable of soothing even the loudest of mobs into a quiet peace and calmness. You will do anything to prevent death, including changing your act when it occurs.

When a player dies by non-execution your position on the duel/dance list is randomized
Once per game you may choose to entertain your fellow guests and force a skip of the current voting phase and preventing that the MAA Shot, Poisoner's Poison and the Current execution from taking place.


Man-at-arms

You are a Man-at-arms!
All these poor people attempting to fool their way to riches, you have, and always has, been an excellent murderer. By detecting weakness in the group, you can spread fear with one simple line - Who done it?

Once per voting phase, you may shoot one person. They will not survive the shot unless they are the Soldier or Neutral Nymph. If you shoot the Soldier, the Soldier will kill you instead.
You can only shoot losers of duels/dances.
Additionally, you also gain an additional shooting every time you defeat a player in a duel or dance.
The shooting is silent, meaning it does not reveal your role.
You cannot store more than 1 shot at a time.
You start off with one shot.


Nymph

You are a Nymph!
Truthfully, you're probably older than the grounds this castle stands on. It's been a very eventful life you've had. Your final years are approaching. Why not spend the rest of them ruling over a kingdom that you could do what you wish with?

You have three forms. Dueller, Neutral, and Dancer.
You start off in the Neutral form.
Every dinner phase you may switch your form to whatever you want.
While in the Dueller form you become the best fighter but worst dancer.
While in the Dancer form you become the best dancer but worst fighter.
While in the Neutral form you are in the middle of both lists and are immune to the MAA's attack.


Musician

You are a Musician!
Perfect pitch, perfect playing... perfect music. Hands dance across strings and keys as the notes rise and fall. No matter the tune, no matter the tempo, every song ascends to perfection in your grasp. Yet with a single twist, that song becomes an instrument of death.

At the beginning of the Action Phase, you will be notified of the intended winner(s) of the accepted dance(s).
Three times per game, during the Action Phase, you may change the winner of a dance. PM the Moderator to use this power. You may use this ability once on yourself.


Peasant

You are a Peasant!
Every day, you go out onto your simple plot of land and farm. But those who look past your grubby face will find a mind as sharp as a tack. The world is an open book to you, as darting eyes pick out nuances in every scenario.

You will be notified whenever the Blacksmith or the Musician interferes in a challenge.
You will be notified of any secret plate switches.
You will be notified of the target for the poisoner at the beginning of the Dinner Phase.


Poisoner

You are a Poisoner!
There is no better color than the pale blue of asphyxiation. Or perhaps a simple white pallor. Hmm, but the rich re- No matter. Your art is that of death, slipped unnoticed into a vein, on the rim of a cup, among familiar foods...

You may poison a player's food during the Voting Phase. If they eat it, they will die during the dinner phase. PM the Moderator to use this power.


Professor

You are a Professor!
A higher education you had, and a higher education you now teach. You are an expert in the field of social analysis. Whether it be his posture, or or his grin, or another tell that no one but you can pick up upon, all you need to determine the past, present, and true intentions of a man is to observe him carefully.

Whenever you guess a player's role, you may also submit a secondary guess to the moderator for the same player. If the secondary guess is correct, it will be displayed as your submitted guess, otherwise, your primary guess, whether correct or incorrect, will be displayed. Whenever you win a challenge, you may submit a third guess the following Dinner Phase.


Royal

You are a Royal!
The blood running through your veins is undeniably royal. An aura of command encircles and influences those who behold you. Combined with a forceful and assertive personality, you can direct others without their knowledge.

Your vote counts as two during the Voting Phase. PM the moderators to cast your second vote secretly.
Once per game, during the Voting Phase, you may force a vote. PM the Moderator to use this power.


Soldier

You are a Soldier!
You went off to war a simple peasant boy, unsure of the world. You returned not a man, but a soldier. With guns, war is hell. With magic, war is worse. Your mind was nearly shattered, and your body forever changed.

You are immune to poison.
You will kill the MAA when they shoot you.


Sorcerer

You are a Sorcerer!
Why must the magical elite linger among the unpowered civilians? No matter. Your victory is near certain, as you are obvious the the most cunning and clever person here. The other contestants must be grateful that your powers are too flashy.

Once per game, you may choose a player to magically kill. PM the Moderator to use this power.
When you use your power, you will be revealed as the Sorcerer. There are no restrictions on when you may use this power, only that you cannot use it if you are one of the losers in a voting phase.


Student

You are a Student!
During your college years, you could never confine yourself to a single field of study. Thankfully, a natural knack for learning led to the collection of a wide variety of skills. In the Palace, this ability will serve you well, as duelling and dancing are simply other skills.

Each time you participate in a duel or dance and lose, you move up two slots on the corresponding list. Dead players count as being on the lists.


Thief

You are a Thief!
The perfect crime remains unknown. It is a mark of your prowess as a thief that no one had heard your name or seen your exploits. You have stolen from the richest kings, scammed the brightest scholars... Switching plates is like taking candy from a baby.

You may switch player's plates up to 5 times without their knowledge. PM the Moderator to use this power. If the poisoner dies, you will become the new poisoner.

Yes it has, but we're re-hosting it to see how well it does this time. There's been a few changes on top of that.
If you haven't noticed the color differences, I am BRVR. The other color is Chemist.

If this game goes well, there will be different flavor that will have it's own unique name and if players want they can suggest a few roles that they would like to be in the next game. The link at the end of the OP has the Hub that holds all the roles and experimental roles. The only role not in there i think is the Nymph.
