As of now, all roles have been distributed
If I somehow failed to send you a PM, please PM me, and I will tell you what your role is.
Please note that I have reduced the number of Loyalists by 1, so that the number of Yang Loyalists now number 2 (rather than 1), and the Courtiers (including special roles) number 8, not counting the wild card (Minister of the Treasury). I did this because after crunching numbers for a bit, I realized that having 3 Loyalists versus 7 or even 8 innocents would make the game nearly impossible for the Courtiers to win.
As mentioned in the PM and in the role description, the Minister of the Treasury
is a wild card role whose win condition is to survive. This means that so long as this player survives to the end of the game (all mafia is eliminated /or/ all innocents except for Minister T eliminated), he or she will win, regardless of which faction actually wins.
I will be posting a "story post" in the game thread soon, after which you will all commence voting for the Charismatic Adviser
. This is a tiebreaking role that only activates when the lynch vote is tied during the day phase. If the Charismatic Adviser is eliminated, a new one will be chosen during the following day phase.
I am pretty sure I've covered everything. If you have questions, you can PM me whenever, and I will answer at my earliest convenience.
Please remember that the first person to post/pick someone to lynch during the day phase is not necessarily a mafia. Somebody has to go first.
Also, please try not to stalk people (checking who's online, who's sending messages, who's in the forum, etc.) to guess at what their role is.
Remember, cooperation and deception are both encouraged.
Most importantly, have fun!
