Ever wonder what goes on in the library when no one's around to see it? Here's your chance to find out! (Maybe we can even figure out why that girl in the picture below has an umbrella open inside. Is it raining books?)The Characters:
That Girl Analise
Votes may be changed at any time before the voting is declared closed and the final tally is posted. (Try not to make anyone dizzy, though.)
The first vote will be for the Librarian
. In case of a tie in the lynch vote, this person will have the tie-breaking vote. Should the Librarian perish in the line of duty (it's a dangerous job, but someone has to do it), then another Librarian will be elected.
Do not vote to lynch yourself.
If at any point, the Antagonists outnumber the Protagonists, the Antagonists will be declared the victors. Ditto for the reverse.
If one of the Star-Crossed Lovers
is an Antagonist and the other a Protagonist, the win condition for them changes. They must try to be the only two people left standing at the end of the game. When the Wise Matchmaker
chooses the Lovers (during the first night phase), the role of each Lover will be revealed to the other. From that point on, they may trust each other completely, regardless of their prior alliances. The Matchmaker may choose to make themselves one of the Lovers.
The Roles:Protagonists (7):
Where would any story be without one? Through the power of your votes during the day phase and the use of your wits, your goal is to try to ferret out and destroy the Antagonists who will try to thwart you.Antagonists (3):
Likewise, if everything always went the Protagonist's way, stories would be pretty dull. Each night phase, you may choose another player to attack. If that person is protected by the Brave Soldier
, nothing happens and the attack is wasted. Otherwise, that person is killed. If one of the Star-Crossed Lovers
dies in this way, the other Lover dies of grief.Brave Soldier (1):
Each night phase, you may choose one player to protect by sending the name of that player to the Author (Val). If that player is the target of the Antagonists
that night, their attack is stopped and no one will be eliminated that night. Go, you!Mysterious Killer (1):
Sometimes it's the character you don't really notice at first that's the most dangerous. Once during the course of the game, during a night phase, this player may choose one person to target for elimination, by some mysterious means. If that person is protected by the Brave Soldier
, then the attack will fail and the ability cannot be used again.Forthright Detective (1):
There are always clues out there, if you know where to find them. Each night phase, this player may choose one person to investigate by sending that person's name to the Author (Val). Knowledge is power.Wise Matchmaker (1):
During the night phase after the first lynch vote, the Matchmaker will choose two players to make into the Star-Crossed Lovers
. The Matchmaker may choose to be one of the Lovers. This ability may only be used once. Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match.Star-Crossed Lovers (2):
Just like Romeo and Juliet, only hopefully with a better ending. Once the Lovers are matched by the Wise Matchmaker
, they may trust each other completely. If one Lover is eliminated, either by the Antagonists
or by lynching, the other Lover will also die. If one Lover is an Antagonist, and the other an Innocent, their win condition changes. Their goal is then to be the only two players left standing at the end. Otherwise, the usual win condition still applies.Librarian (1):
Special. The holder of this elected position has the power to break any ties that might occur in the lynch voting. Knowledge of the Dewey Decimal System preferred.
