Spoiler: pregame rules
here are some rules to guide you during the pregame, but please note that the precise rules for the game itself can't be finalized until the game actually starts, and that some of the rules below may change slightly!

  1. obey all site rules. you can read the site rules here.
  2. do not discuss the game in any capacity outside of this game thread.
  3. do not harass other players in this game. while a certain level of confrontation and argumentation is to be expected in the game itself, don't bring personal vendettas into the game or intentionally try to harm any player.
  4. you will receive a PM with a unique 4-letter string (example: ABCD) randomly generated using this webpage and a link to this questionnaire. you will need to enter the 4-letter string and your username to complete this questionnaire. please do so as soon as possible. failure to complete your questionnaire in a reasonable amount of time may result in your answers not being used; I will post in this thread if I need to impose a deadline for completing the questionnaire.
  5. you may discuss your responses to the questionnaire in this thread if you choose to do so, but I'm going to recommend that you don't do that too much before the game starts, because you might accidentally divulge information that could decrease your odds of winning once the game starts.
  6. once everyone has completed their questionnaire, I will begin work on putting together a setup based on the responses I've received. once that is complete, I will send you a PM with a role. you will need to respond to this PM with a brief explanation of what your role is to confirm that you have read it.
  7. do not use the color #990000.
  8. if you will be away from the site for a significant period of time, please do the following: first, update your "Vacation / Limited Access" info in the User Control Panel; second, PM me to let me know that you'll be V/LA; and third, post in the thread to let the other players know that you'll be V/LA. if the thread is locked, I will let the other players know that you are away when the thread becomes unlocked. if you will be regularly away for specific time periods (for instance, during the weekend), you only need to post that and PM me once, but please clearly state that this will be ongoing when you do so.
  9. I will not edit your posts unless your post breaks the rules in such a way that information needs to be removed from it, in which case I will replace the entire post with the text "removed by xyzzy".
  10. I reserve the right to modify these rules at any time if necessary.

  5. you should have received a PM with a role from me. you will need to respond to this PM with a brief explanation of what your role is to confirm that you have read it. if you haven't received a PM from me, let me know.
  6. do not use the color #990000.

  8. I will not edit your posts unless your post breaks the rules in such a way that information needs to be removed from it, in which case I will replace the entire post with the text "removed by xyzzy".
  9. the first day will last 2 weeks, and each subsequent day will last 1 week. nights will last 48 hours, although they can end early if each player asks to end the night early.
  10. to vote, use bold text with the word "vote" followed by a colon and the username of the player you wish to vote for, or use the vote tag with the username of the player you wish to vote for inside. please use the full username of the player you are voting for.
  11. a lynch will occur once the majority number of votes are for a player, and no lynch will occur if either the majority number of votes are for no lynch or the deadline for the day passes.
  12. don't use any sort of cryptography, hidden text, or other similar methods to hide information in the game thread. this is mostly pretty straightforward, but if you're unsure whether something is acceptable, ask me.
  13. attempt to win. there's a chance you'll lose, but do your best to avoid that. deliberately throwing the game is very bad.
  14. once you are dead, do not post in this thread no matter what until the game is over.
  15. if you go 48 hours without posting, I'll send you a prod PM and post in the thread letting everyone know you've been prodded. if you fail to pick up the PM and post in the thread for 48 more hours, you will be replaced. if I need to repeatedly prod you, I may replace you earlier; I will make that clear both in your prod PM and in the thread.
  16. if you need to be replaced, let me know via PM. if you have any information you would like me to pass on to whomever replaces you (strategic advice, the complete Bee Movie script, etc), send it to me, and I will pass it on.
  17. do not quote any private correspondence with me in this thread.
  18. I reserve the right to modify these rules at any time if necessary.

everyone gathered around to take part in the favorite tradition of the town: spelling out words such as "fucshia" one letter at a time. or is that "fuchsia"? I can never remember. suddenly, though, someone noticed a series of 8.5x11 sheets of paper with one letter each in large text in the Georgia typeface:

KILL ALL TOWNIES

"oh shit," everyone said, except for KainTepes, who said "OH SHIT,,,,"

"I just realized that joke won't fully make sense because I'm using small caps, so you can't tell that KainTepes's dialogue is all caps," said a voice from somewhere unknown.

"we need to find whomever is responsible for this and eliminate them before they murder us," someone said. "also, it would help if we could identify the source of that mysterious voice, but that's an adventure for another day."

"too true," replied someone else. "and nicely done properly using the word 'whomever' in a sentence! a lesser person would've just said 'whoever' and called it a day."


votecount 1.0113 players not voting (drealmerz7, Aristophanes, Desperado, Secret Agent Jin, Gamma Emerald, Davsto, lane0168, KainTepes, ɀefiend, McMenno, FrankJaeger, Narna, SnarkySnowman)

with 13 players alive, it takes 7 votes to lynch

the day will end in (expired on 2017-01-23 18:00:00)


mod notes: whoops! I forgot to explicitly state in the rules that a lynch is achieved when the majority number of votes are for someone's lynch or for no lynch, that no lynch will occur if no majority is reached by the deadline, that you don't need to unvote to move your vote, and that votes need to be on their own line in your posts. all of that was probably self-evident, but now it's in the rules. also, this isn't a hard and fast rule, but please try to use players' full usernames whenever voting if possible; acronyms, nicknames, and other things of that sort just make it possible for errors to creep into votecounts, and no one wants that! I also forgot to explicitly state in the rules that you absolutely cannot make any posts in this thread after you die. that one's perhaps slightly less self-evident! the important thing, though, is that it is now officially codified in the rules and you all know about it!

"I think I've figured something out," someone says.

"you mean about the sheets of paper indicating that someone wants to kill us all?" someone replies.

"no," says the first person. "about the mysterious voice that tells us things. I think it's omnipotent."

"yes," the voice replies. "you are correct in your assessment."

someone else speaks up: "I dunno man. the voice sounds like a real assclown to me."


votecount 1.023 players voting for McMenno (Desperado, lane0168, ɀefiend)
2 players voting for KainTepes (Secret Agent Jin, Aristophanes)
1 player voting for Davsto (McMenno)
1 player voting for Desperado (KainTepes)

6 players not voting (drealmerz7, Gamma Emerald, Davsto, FrankJaeger, Narna, SnarkySnowman)

with 13 players alive, it takes 7 votes to lynch

the day will end in (expired on 2017-01-23 18:00:00)


mod notes: Secret Agent Jin is V/LA until January 16. SnarkySnowman's vote in post was ignored because I am not a valid target for votes.

"I've figured out an important detail to resolving all of this," someone says excitedly.

"oh?" replies someone else.

"yeah, here's the thing: all of the people here reliably have an opinion on whether dogs or cats are better."

"I don't see how that's useful."

suddenly, the booming voice from the sky interrupts. "I would just like to remind you all that flavor text in votecounts should not be taken as evidence that any detail in the questionnaire correlates to anything that's going on right now. don't read too much into it, y'all."

"besides," says the second person. "we still haven't addressed the issue of what the hell the supposedly omnipotent booming voice in the sky represents, like, on a literary level."


votecount 1.035 player voting for Davsto (McMenno, Narna, KainTepes, Davsto, SnarkySnowman)
3 players voting for McMenno (Desperado, lane0168, ɀefiend)
2 players voting for KainTepes (Secret Agent Jin, Aristophanes)

3 players not voting (drealmerz7, Gamma Emerald, FrankJaeger)

everyone gathers around to hear what one of the townspeople has to say.

"hey," says the townsperson, "maybe the whole conceit of us selecting and killing members of our community through mob justice is both contrived and highly unethical, you know? like we'll almost certainly end up killing someone who is completely innocent. I don't want that blood on my hands."

the rest of the townspeople promptly slap that person while saying in unison, "don't question the premise!"

"I've decided I'm actually okay with this now," says the townsperson. "please just stop slapping me."

"hey, everyone," said the omnipotent voice in the sky, "you have about 9 days until this day is over! just keep that in mind!"

everyone agrees that that is most certainly not how days work and that the omnipotent voice in the sky isn't very smart.

"none of you have actually changed your votes since the last votecount," says the omnipotent voice in the sky, "but there's a couple of prods in the mod notes, so here's another votecount!"

"what the fuck is a votecount, and what the fuck is a mod notes," says everyone in exasperation simultaneously. it's actually pretty impressive.

"well," says the voice in the sky, "wait until I tell you about 'pedits'. that'll blow your minds."

"I haven't really been trying to get pagetops for the votecounts in this game," says the omnipotent voice in the sky.

"that sure is a series of words that literally any of us find remotely comprehensible," says everyone.


votecount 1.103 players voting for drealmerz7 (Davsto, Aristophanes, lane0168)
2 players voting for lane0168 (Narna, FrankJaeger)
2 players voting for Davsto (McMenno, SnarkySnowman)
2 players voting for McMenno (Desperado, Azral)
1 player voting for Azral (KainTepes)
1 player voting for Aristophanes (ɀefiend)
1 player voting for Desperado (drealmerz7)

1 player not voting (Gamma Emerald)

with 13 players alive, it takes 7 votes to lynch

the day will end in (expired on 2017-01-23 18:00:00)


mod notes: FrankJaeger is V/LA until January 23.

"hey," says the omnipotent voice in the sky. "sorry for not getting a votecount out yesterday! I don't have an excuse for that beyond 'I was feeling lazy,' but, like, I'll try not being lazy in the future?"

"you literally first started talking to us for the first time a few hours ago," someone says. "we cannot reiterate this enough: none of us have any idea what you are talking about."

"I accidentally had the last 3 votecounts listed as 1.09," says the omnipotent voice in the sky. "also I've totally not updated the opening post with links to the votecounts in forever. I'm a fucker. I'm a true fucker. I'm a true fucker for life."

"don't go so hard on yourself for whatever it is you're talking about," says someone.

"thanks for saying the things that I wrote you as saying just then," says the omnipotent voice in the sky.

"wait what"

mod notes: FrankJaeger is V/LA until January 23. Aristophanes is also V/LA until January 23. Gamma Emerald will need to either post in the thread before the deadline or contact me by PM within 24 hours of the deadline, or I will need to seek a replacement for him; if this happens, night will be extended beyond the 72-hour mark, so hopefully I won't need to do that!

also, congrats to lane0168 on successfully becoming engaged!

"hold on," says McMenno as the rest of the town approaches him. "I really think we need to address the fact that the omnipotent voice in the sky just claimed to control our free will by writing things and then we say the things! no matter what you think about me, we need to figure that out! that's a really big deal!"

then the townspeople killed McMenno because the omnipotent voice in the sky willed that they would not address this issue.


votecount 1.137 players voting for McMenno (Desperado, Azral, Davsto, ɀefiend, drealmerz7, lane0168, KainTepes)

1 player voting for Davsto (SnarkySnowman)
1 player voting for Aristophanes (Narna)
1 player voting for drealmerz7 (Aristophanes)

1 player not voting (Gamma Emerald)

with 13 players alive, it takes 7 votes to lynch

the day has ended and night 1 has begun. night 1 will end in (expired on 2017-01-26 09:00:00)


mod notes: Gamma Emerald has 24 hours to PM me, or I will begin seeking a replacement for him.

"wait," someone says. "before you die, tell us what you know. tell us what you know about the omnipotent voice in the sky."

"it's too late for that, friends," says the omnipotent voice in the sky. the townspeople begin to wonder whether the omnipotent voice in the sky is really a friend. they also begin to wonder what words they can spell one letter at a time tomorrow. their priorities are in place.


McMenno was a third party survivalist! he would have won when only members of one other faction remained alive as long as he was also alive!

Gamma Emerald has requested to be replaced. if necessary, night 1 will be extended until a replacement is found, with an additional 24-hour period for the replacement to read the thread if fewer than 24 hours would otherwise remain.

everyone wakes up the next day, ready to start another day of figuring out who's trying to kill everyone.

well, maybe not everyone. in fact, a lot of you didn't make it through the night.

you find the bodies floating in a pool of blueberry tea. "dammit," says the omnipotent voice in the sky, "I spent all that time boiling a massive amount of water and acquiring a massive number of tea bags, and now you all went and ruined it with some dead bodies!"

you all examine the bodies and discover that they belonged to Aristophanes, drealmerz7, and lane0168.


Aristophanes was a third party survivalist day 2 vigilante! he would have won when only members of one other faction remained alive so long as he was also alive! also, he could've daykilled someone on day 2 if he'd made it that far!

drealmerz7 was a third party serial killer! he would have won when he was the only player left alive! he also had the ability to gain two pieces of SECRET KNOWLEDGE at any time!

lane0168 was a town double vote maker! he will win if all factions that oppose the town are eliminated! he had the ability to give one player an additional vote for the next day each night!


votecount 2.019 players not voting (Alisae, Desperado, Azral, Davsto, ɀefiend, KainTepes, FrankJaeger, SnarkySnowman, Narna)

with 9 players alive, it takes 5 votes to lynch

day 2 will end in (expired on 2017-02-02 15:00:00)


one very important mod note: several players have received copies of their questionnaire responses (a few players have asked me to give them their responses, and the players who replaced received copies of the responses of the players they replaced). I inadvertently gave one player a copy of another player's questionnaire responses. I do not believe this will have an enormous effect on the game, but I'm letting you all know now that that's the case! I will do my best to make sure that no more errors of this sort happen.

"you know," someone says, "we never figured out whether the omnipotent voice in the sky's preference for cats is in any way relevant to our current situation."

and then everyone decides to focus on that issue for a while. it's almost certainly a complete waste of time, but you get to spend some time thinking about how good kittens are, so in a way... it was the best possible use of your time???

"hey," says someone. "because of this whole issue of figuring out who wants to kill us all, we've kind of lost focus on the bigger picture of what words we can spell out one letter at a time."

"that's true," someone else says. "any proposals for what words we could spell out one letter at a time?"

"I was thinking we could just start at the beginning of a dictionary and go from there," says the first person.

"cool, cool, cool, sounds like a plan."

"wait, you guys," says Alisae, "I feel like we've grown really close these past few days. you can't kill me now!"

"okay, first of all," says everyone, "you're not remotely close to us. the Bay Area is nowhere near New Jersey. those aren't remotely close."

"not all of you live in New Jersey probably!"

"okay that's true but stop interrupting. our second point is this: you've only been around for like a day. in fact I'm pretty sure you just straight up replaced that Hulk-themed individual."

"Hulk-themed?"

"yeah. you know. gamma radiation. the color that emeralds are. those are all the key traits of the Hulk. Hulk-themed."

"riiiiiiiiiiiiiii-"

Alisae was suddenly cut off in the middle of this sarcastic response by an acute case of being not alive.


Alisae was a town watcher! he will win if all factions that oppose the town are eliminated!

sadly, though, it seems there's no blueberry tea at all, not even the kind with dead bodies floating in it. disappointing.

"you can't kill me! I wasn't done helping you all spelling out the word 'dog' one letter at a time yet!" says Azral.

"that's cool and true," someone replies, "except for the part where you tried to convince us that the word 'dog' is spelled 'K-I-L-L'."

"okay but besides that"

and then Azral was dead.


Azral was a mafia goon! he will win when all factions that oppose the mafia are eliminated!

I have reason to believe that there might be issues with PMs not properly being sent in this game, and because this could potentially compromise the integrity of the game, night 3 won't end until I'm confident that there aren't any further issues. please check any messages you've sent me and make sure I picked them up (they should be in your sent messages folder), though please be advised that it's possible I did not receive them even if everything appears to be in order. if I didn't respond to any messages you've sent me, please let me know. I will keep you updated if there are any other developments. thank you.

once again, everyone wakes up ready to get to action, and it doesn't seem that anyone died at all. that's certainly fine, because more people participating means more potentially exciting results, and that's why you're all here, right? it's for the sake of excitement.

you all decide to spell out the word "excitement", but people keep thinking the first letter is "x".

mod notes: everything seems to be normal with regards to the possible PM issue, so hopefully the game will continue without any issues. if you PM me and do not receive a response, PM me again, and if you do not receive a PM at any time when you would expect to receive one, please let me know. thanks!

"hey," says the omnipotent voice in the sky. "this is votecount 4.02, and that's my birthday if you're in a country where they put the month before the day!"

you all wonder what the omnipotent voice in the sky is talking about since, first of all, the concept of a "votecount" is absolutely meaningless, and second of all, why would someone even live in a country where they don't do it that way???????? c'mon.


votecount 4.021 player voting for SnarkySnowman (Desperado)
1 player voting for Narna (ɀefiend)
1 player voting for ɀefiend (SnarkySnowman)

4 players not voting (Davsto, KainTepes, FrankJaeger, Narna)

with 7 players alive, it takes 4 votes to lynch

day 4 will end in (expired on 2017-02-20 19:30:00)


mod notes: did you know that if you try to put a poop emoji in the mod notes, this is what happens?

you all carefully spell out the word "valentine's" one letter at a time, and you actually get it right. good work, everyone.

"hey," says the omnipotent voice in the sky, "on a completely unrelated note, I strongly considered writing '17 February in honor of weird British date standards down there in the mod notes."

this new information completely throws off your collective efforts to spell the word "day", because it's completely incomprehensible.


votecount 4.031 player voting for SnarkySnowman (Desperado)
1 player voting for Narna (ɀefiend)
1 player voting for ɀefiend (SnarkySnowman)

4 players not voting (Davsto, KainTepes, FrankJaeger, Narna)

with 7 players alive, it takes 4 votes to lynch

day 4 will end in (expired on 2017-02-20 19:30:00)


mod notes: KainTepes has been prodded, and will need to respond to this prod within 24 hours. Davsto is V/LA until February 17.

"hey, everyone," says the omnipotent voice in the sky. "I drove on the 405 once, which I'm only pointing out because this is votecount 4.05. see, the last one was 4.04, so I wrote 'flavor text not found'. those are some of the fun flavor jokes I've included thus far."

"that's a really cool story, but we're pretty busy with this whole killing thing."


votecount 4.054 players voting for SnarkySnowman (Desperado, ɀefiend, Infinity 324, ????)
2 players voting for ɀefiend (SnarkySnowman, Narna)
1 player voting for KainTepes (FrankJaeger)

1 player not voting (Davsto)

with 7 players alive, it takes 4 votes to lynch

day 4 has ended. night 4 will end in (expired on 2017-02-19 14:30:00)


mod notes: a lynch was achieved before Infinity 324's unvote in post 1268, so it was not counted. Davsto is V/LA until February 17. also, be sure to play lots of Marathon Games this weekend!

"now, hold on," says SnarkySnowman. I'm pretty sure we haven't fully resolved all these issues with the omnipotent voice in the sky. after all, what if they're the one responsible for all of this trouble?"

"I don't think that's right at all," someone says. "you're definitely the one responsible for this. stop trying to redirect the attention to the omnipotent voice in the sky!"

"actually, it's pretty ironic that you'd--" says SnarkySnowman, suddenly dying.


SnarkySnowman was a mafia redirector! they will win when all factions that oppose the mafia are eliminated!

"I sure hope no one died last night," someone says. "it's more fun when people don't die."

sadly, that person didn't get their wish. and also, the person who said it definitely wasn't Infinity 324, because Infinity 324 is no longer capable of saying things.

because Infinity 324 is dead.




Infinity 324 was a questionnaire checker, who could see how a particular person responded to a particular question! he will win when all factions that oppose the town are eliminated!

the town decides the best thing to do is spell out the words "process of elimination" one letter at a time, but every time they do, they accidentally end up spelling "Narna" again. well, guess that's as good a reason as any to kill someone.

final votecount3 players voting for Narna (ɀefiend, FrankJaeger, Davsto)

2 players not voting (Desperado, Narna)

with 5 players alive, it takes 3 votes to lynch


"wait," says Narna. "we still haven't addressed the omnipotent voice in the sky and what to do about whomever that is!"

"I feel like it should be pretty obvious," says the omnipotent voice in the sky. "like, this flavor text was never all that complicated or difficult to parse."

"that's true," says everyone else, pretending to understand. "it was always very easy and there was no confusion."

"so anyway," someone says. "we really need to kill Narna, because that's probably the thing that will work best."

"wait," says Narna. "we haven't even had a dramatic confession of love yet! this story can't be any good until that happens, which means you can't kill me yet!"

"okay, first of all," says everyone else, "that is an incredibly obvious stalling technique. I doubt you love anyone, to be honest. second of all, aren't you implying that this story will come to a conclusion as soon as we kill you?"

"the logic all checks out," says the omnipotent voice in the sky, "but I want to hear this supposed love confession first."

Narna begins to speak. "I love..."

"I love..."

"..."

"..."

"...to kill townies. Narna out."


Narna was a mafia SECRET KNOWLEDGE gainer!

with that, all players who oppose the town have been eliminated! the town wins!

also, special thanks to the reviewer, callofjudgement! the game review thread and the mod thread will be released momentarily.

the mafia and the masons both had private topics as well; they have a 24-hour period to request that any posts of their choice be deleted, after which their threads will be released.

setup creation thread: viewtopic.php?f=90&t=69888&p=8689301#p8689301
mod thread: viewtopic.php?f=90&t=69880&p=8684350#p8684350

some notes:

1)the reason Davsto and Desperado were masons was because they both requested to be town, and they were the only ones who requested this. the mafia were all the players who requested to be mafia.
2)the survivalists had a kill and had daytalk, so even though they technically won independently of each other, I treated them as being sort of like a faction together.
3)I invoked the power of "change the game midway through to make things not suck" exactly once--once Narna was the only mafia member remaining, I gave him the option of swapping his night kill immunity for a night kill, which he took. basically, the game reached a point where either Narna would immediately and most assuredly be lynched, or the game would become a total slog that would just drag on for way too long.

oh also! the ???? votes were from the dead players, indirectly--each night, they got to pick one player who would have an extra vote the next day. the one on day 1 was picked at random to give the illusion that it had been a mechanic the whole game.

yeah, technically one of the requirements for running a large theme game is having played in a large theme game, and while I'm sure I did so 8 years ago, I haven't played any of those since I came back to the site last year, so I'm gonna do that before that happens for sure!
