IMPERIAL INTRIGUE

Image


Spoiler: "Opening Flavor"
The Beran sat on the Burning Throne, face hard and scowling, posture rigid and straight, as usual. The Throne Room was dark - lamps down, shutters drawn - lit only by the bright glow of the Throne itself. The great doors cracked open and a shadowed figure entered; Garen Sturmengard raised a hand to his chin and glared at the man as he crossed the room to the base of the Throne's elevated platform. "A number of emissaries demand audience, mein herr," said the steward, halting with a stamp of his foot and bowing his slightly in respect.

"Who?" asked the
Beran, narrowing his eyes.

"Most refuse to identify their benefactors,
herr, citing fear for their safety. All demand private audience."

"If they deign to grace me with their presence without showing common courtesy then they shall receive no preferential treatment from me," the
Beran growled, his scowl hardening. "Light the lamps, send them in."

"Which ones,
mein herr?"

"All of them. They'll settle their disputes like men or they won't be settled at all."


Welcome to my first Large Theme game. I hope and plan to have a lot of fun with this, so just sit back, relax, and follow the damn rules, and we'll be alright.

Rules

1. Votes must be bolded in this format: Vote: Wraith
2. Days will have a deadline of three weeks. Deadline can be extended under special circumstances
-----2a. Deadline will be shortened at my discretion as the game progresses
3. Factions CAN daytalk
4. Do not under any circumstances communicate with another player(s) outside the game thread.
5. Please do not quote the role PM
-----5a. Please ask permission before quoting any PM from the mod.
6. Absolutely no invisible, small, or otherwise unreadable text. Spoiler tags are allowed as long as the nature of their contents are clearly labeled.
7. You will be prodded after failing to post in 72 hours. If you require a third prod at any point in the game you will instead be replaced. Inform in-thread of any upcoming V/LA in bold: V/LA Sunday to Saturday
-----7a. If you join to my game and flake without posting or requesting replacement you will be blacklisted.
8. “Bah” posts are allowed, and should not include any kind of game-related information. However, lynched players may continue to talk during Twlight.
9. Twilight occurs after the hammer and before the lynch scene. You may continue to talk but any new votes/unvotes will not be counted.
-----9a. "No Lynch" occurs when HALF of the remaining players vote for it.
10. Blue is my color, don’t use it.
-----10a. Uncolored Italics will be used in flavor. Only the opening flavor will be spoilered.
11. I modkill at my discretion, with or without warnings depending on the offense. If you think something will test my rules (or patience), ask me first, or don’t do it at all. Modkills will end the day and turn the killed player into a Neutral Survivor.
12. If I make a mistake in some way, point it out via: @mod: You made a mistake
13. I reserve the right to add to or change the rules at my discretion. There are no loopholes, and I enforce ex post facto.
14. Don't be afraid to have fun. Despite the wording of these rules I am not a ruthless dictator and the vast majority of players are not trolls. Good luck!
-----14a. To be more specific: Please Be Civil
15. On Activity Requirements and Replacements: Players will be prodded upon request or if they go 72 hours without any sort of activity. A player will receive two prods before being force-replaced. Replacements will be recruited via the mini normal queue topic or if a player contacts me via PM and requests to be the first priority for replacing someone. If a player does not respond to a prod at all within 72 hours that player will be replaced regardless of number of prods.
-----15a. I have had serious activity problems in the past. I will tighten activity requirements as I see fit.
16. I have certain house rules regarding roles:
-----17a. Serial Killers are immune to Cop investigations in Large games
-----17b. PGOs are killed if they are targeted by a nightkill, but they do kill their attacker
-----17c. People are informed if they are roleblocked in a normal game
17. Play to win. I don't care if someone you hate is in your faction, if you throw the game to spite someone you will be modkilled and blacklisted.
18. Flavor will play a heavy part of my contribution in this game. Remember that any public flavor that I write willl have NO BEARING on the alignments of players mentioned. I will attempt to put flavorized recaps of game events into each votecount, and flavor will open and end each day. Flavor will work its way into official PMs as well, and if it makes sense flavor-wise players who are killed during the night will be informed as to who murdered them (PMs about questions to me will not be flavored). After flips the names of players (which will be bracketed in flavor) will be replaced by the names of their characters if I have the time to do so.

Spoiler: "Example PMs"
"Flavor Quotation"

Day One

The great doors to the Throne Room were thrown open, and twenty-four men and women marched inside. The Beran stood and briefly gave them the Imperial salute. Most returned it, bowing slightly as well - others did not. "What is the meaning of this?" demanded [JDGA], spreading his arms wide. "We requested a private audience, not a mob debate!"

"Many of you are so arrogant as to
demandthings of me. I may be only of a minor klan but I am still Beran, and here, now, my word is law. I will not be talked down to like one of your servants," Sturmengard rumbled. "You did not request audience, you demanded it. So did the rest of you. And so you will all have the audience you demanded...together."

A cacophony of voices erupted, drowning out all other sounds within the hall. Under the cover of the chaos, a steward slipped through the crowd of delegates and approached the
Beran, saluting and handing him a message. Reading it, Sturmengard's expression turned grim. "SILENCE!" he bellowed, holding up a hand. Almost immediately the hall suddenly obeyed his command. "The legion commanders have dispatched me messages from all across the Relm. There are armies stirring in the north, west, and east, all claiming to be fighting for the rightful heir to the throne!"

"Well they're all dirty liars!" interrupted
[vezokpiraka]. Many others shouted in agreement. The Beran growled and raised his hand again, scowling at them.

"As I was saying," he continued. "They all claim the Iron Crown, and march on the city to take it by force if necessary." He clenched his fist and crumpled the letter. "I suspect the nobles are behind this," he growled, narrowing his eyes and staring at each delegate in turn. "Some of you must represent these traitors, yet you refuse to identify yourselves. Very well. By majority vote of your peers, you will be found and exiled from the
Relm, at best. At worst, you will be executed." The Beran settled himself on the Burning Throne. "Begin."

Please remember that flavor has NO BEARING on any players' role or alignment. Names used were chosen at random.

Deadline for this day will be October 11, 2011

With 24 alive it will take 13 to lynch

Alright, I've got some role-based info to help make things easier to understand.
There are 2 main scum groups, Loyalists and Imperialists.
There are also several Houses. Those loyal to a House are town.
I want everyone to claim their alignment/House in their first post.

Also, Rain Death on Otolia from Above
^Daykill^

Please tell me that's a fake daykill.

If it isn't, congrats, you just became today's lynch I think..

PEdit: How dare you. How very dare you. Not only do you barge in here throwing around death threats, you accuse the honourable house of Argelev of being traitors! You will kneel before this day is through, fiend!

David, why does my Daykill make me insta-lynch?
What if Otolia flips scum/3rd party?
What if I did it because I know something you don't?
What if I just killed a Negative Utility?

Because you're taking a Day-Shot that may, depending on mechanics, end the day.

Doesn't matter. Scum know who other Scum are on their team.
Town are the uninformed majority, "knowing something we don't" is being an informed minority. The informed minority are the scum teams.
Negative Utilities are Town too, and can be directed in most cases I've seen.
