    I'll run a game starting either 14/11 or 21/11

    Who's in? Reply to the thread and vote for whether you want an anonymous game or not.

    Preferably I'd run an open game as it's easier to set up and most people are now "experienced" so it shouldn't be a problem IMO. However if the general preference is to have an anonymous game then I'd set that up with the help of admins.

    IN! And don’t mind, it’s quite fun seeing everyone thinking the experienced players are any better at this game than anyone else then they turn out to be equally as useless

    I'll stay out of this one as I obviously never fully got the concept of the last one. But good luck to all players. :)

    I have 13 so far, which is good, 3-7 more would be great.

    So far those in are:

    Harrow Orn
    Steve Leo Beleck

    Previous players such as @wfcmoog , @AshdonWFC , @With A Smile , @Norwayhornet , @Cassetti's Beard , @Grrwood , @Daft Row , @EB Hornet and @Heidar haven't seen/responded yet. Sorry if I missed anyone.

    I'm looking at starting on Wednesday next week, 16/11.
    I'm aware that on Day 4, 21/11 that England play at 13:00, so I will close the village between 12pm and 3pm.

    No problem, we were all new to it once! Have a look back to one or more of the past games for help.

    In a nutshell there are two teams, good and evil. The evil team is usually made up of about 4 players (dependent on total players at the start), 3 wolves and a traitor, the traitor knows the identity of the wolves. On team good you have a seer and various other roles, but the seer is the key person, they ask the moderator once per day whether a player is good or evil and after the response the seer sends a message to the moderator to send out anonymously; however the main wolf (Alpha) also sends out an anonymous message via the moderator each day (if they wish) to throw confusion to all the players. At the end of each day all remaining players vote on another player to 'lynch' based on the anonymous messages (although in reality everything goes off on a tangent and someone else gets killed off).

    Between days, each surviving wolf player selects which player to kill off, however it is possible that one wolf accidentally kills off another. As each day passes there are fewer players. Team good win when all of the wolves have been killed off, team evil wins when their number equals or is better than team good. Most games last about 6-7 working days and take place from about 9am to 8pm, but most activity is between about 10am and 2pm. You can post as much or as little as you like but each play must participate each day and vote.

    I have 16 in, anyone else wishing to join you have a few hours, I will assign roles and PM late tonight. Ready to start on Wednesday.

    I haven’t received a PM? Just wanted to make sure they haven’t been sent yet?
  28. I'm afraid that means you've already been killed :(

  29. Me neither. I was killed on day one last game. This time I've been killed before the game even started.

    Sorry all, I got an urgent work request regarding the World Cup last night, I will be sending out PMs this afternoon.

    Roles have been sent out, PM me if you haven't received it.

    For all players I assume all of the rules that have played out before are in place. However I am adding a couple of other rules:

    1. Game will start at 9:30am on each working day.
    2. Game will close at some point between 6pm and 8pm on each day. However if all votes are in early I may close it early.
    3. On Monday 21st, due to England playing at 13:00, I will temporarily close the village between 12:30 and 15:00.
    4. The vast majority of players are experienced, so it would be good to not use experience as a sole reason to lynch.
    5. There will be a minimum of 2 anonymous messages on each of the first 2 days, this is to prevent the game from going stale in the beginning, I will require that on days 1 & 2 that all messages are PMed to me before 2pm. + I will timestamp the anonymous messages just in case I'm unavailable to add them to the chat at the time they're sent. The messages would start: Anonymous Message #1 (received at 10:34am) for example.
    6. There will be some strange sh!t going on, don't PM me, just accept it!
    7. There are some masons on team good, they know who they are.
    8. Regarding posting, I require that all participants add at least 2 messages and vote each day, I may be forgiving in extraneous circumstances.
    9. For clarification from the outset, the guardian can protect themselves.
    10. I will not reveal how many or which special roles are active in this game, however at the time of death I will post whether a player is EVIL, GOOD or VERY GOOD.
    11. For those whose role is to PM me their intentions in the evening, can you do so between village closing and 11pm? This gives me a chance to prepare for the following morning.
    12. All votes are final and they can't be changed.
    13. Team good wins once the wolf or wolves are all dead. Team evil wins once their number equals or exceeds the number of good players.
    14. Depending upon how the balance of play is going there may or may not be a full moon. If I do choose to implement a full moon, this will be posted in that day's thread loud and clear.
    15. A backup seer has been assigned, they don't know who they are yet.
    16. Feel free to ask in chat or PM me at any point during the game should you have any questions.
    17. As of this post the 16 players are (listed in order of sign up): @Cthulhu , @HappyHornet24 , @Harrow Orn , @domthehornet , @Burnsy , @wfcSinatra , @Horace_goes_up_north , @Steve Leo Beleck , @miked2006 , @tonycotonstache , @TomWatfordFC , @nornironhorn , @Optimistichornet , @wfcmoog , @With A Smile and @AshdonWFC
    I will keep this thread open for general questions and chat for pre- and in-play.
