TWG Sign-up / Rules Thread!!
Alright, if you're here you mean business. I'm opening this game to as many as 25 players, but honestly I'm thinking around 15 really. This post is divided into two sections, rules, and list of players who have signed up.
There are two sides, humans and wolves. The goal of the wolves is to kill all the humans, if there is an equal amount of wolves and humans, the wolves win. The goal of the humans is to kill all the wolves off.
Regular humans and wolves can only do one thing in common. Each 'day', they each cast a vote. When night hits, the guy with the most votes against him is killed or lynched and is then out of the game.
There's only 5 wolves, whereas everyone else is human. The only way the wolves can avoid being voted off is to pretend to be humans. So naturally, none of the humans know who the wolves are. Every day they try to figure out who the wolves are and vote one off, working together.
To achieve their goal, they get one special ability. Each 'night', they get together and choose one human, that night, that human dies and is out of the game. The main way the humans figure out who the wolves are is by who the wolves choose to kill. Did that one human hit too close to home when he called out a wolf? He died that night? Hmmmm...
Humans have an ace up their sleeve. 4 of them are special humans, each of which gets a unique ability. These 4 special humans have roles that, if used properly, can lead to the defeat of the wolves. Here are the roles;
Guardian - Every night, he chooses 1 person, it can be anyone, to 'protect', this person will be saved if the wolves try to kill him.
Seer - Every night, he chooses 1 person, again anyone, to 'scry', he then is told by me whether that person is human or wolf and if the guy is human, whether he has a role.
Psychic - Every night, the psychic is notified on whether or not the guy who died was a human or a wolf, and if he was a human, whether he had a role or not.
Cleric - Every night, the cleric chooses one player. That player, regardless of whether they are human or wolf, is notified by me that the cleric is definitely a human and that he is the cleric.
Assuming more than one person is tied for the highest vote, they both will die. If one guy gets voted for by more than 50% of the players, he's killed INSTANTLY and the day ends, leading into the night phase. Let's just get one thing straight though, you HAVE TO VOTE. That's right, every day! So put a placeholder vote down when you don't know, and then change it when you think you do, but hurry, don't let night hit before you make that change.
The Day/Night Cycle.
Nights are 24 hour periods in which the game thread is LOCKED and cannot be posted in. During this time, the wolves choose who dies, and the guy who got voted out of the game dies. Days last 48 hours, so you have 2 real days to get your vote in and discuss in the thread. At the beginning of each day, you find out who the wolves killed, at the beginning of each night, the guy who got voted off is officially off the game.
1. Keep your pm box open.
2. If you are not playing do not use the game thread. If you want to be involved then by all means, play the game with us, otherwise don't bug us.
3. You are free to ask questions even after the game has started.
4. As a human, it's your duty to find out who the guys with roles are and cover for them and vote with them. Once people start figuring out who the wolves are, the game gets real easy for you.
5. As a wolf, you want to hide yourself quickly and immediately. Impersonating a human with a role is fun, but be smart, once they figure it out, your out in the open.
6. Don't ask me who the wolves and humans are and which humans have roles, I'm not playing the game, I'm moderating, thus I can't tell you.
Quick Note: My IRC Channel #HolySentinels is open and available for all discussion on The Werewolf Game. For information on how to use IRC, go HERE. Thanks. - Cold.
