How much interaction are we allowed with you guy? Are we allowed to say eg "if the murderer is Kythia then cover up blood loss" ?

There's nothing about it in the official rules, but that seems like poor sportmanship, so I think I'd house rule against that.

Unrelated; would anyone like to volunteer to be next round's FS?

The down side is of course, your ability to chat is imited, but it's a fun fun role.

I'm actually really quite keen to be the FS. I mean, in my experience I'm terrible at this sort of thing (from several games of Mysterium) however I still enjoy it! If anyone else is keen though should we have a vote or something?

Perhaps whoever is the first to guess the correct solution?  Or the murderer if no one does?  That'd be the most fair, I think.  ;D

That's not a bad idea, Remi. I was thinking of just doing a dice between the interested volunteers instead of the full group, then a role for the other roles with the remaining. Sadly, as GM, I can only play roles that know everything, so my options are either forensics or nothing. =(

But that's okay, I got to play a round with you guys, that's more than many GMs can do for games they run here or on CHWB.

Not necessarily.  The Forensic Scientist can randomly pick the murderer and accomplice, and then the murderer can tell the FS what method / evidence he or she is choosing.

And then you can tell the FS what clues he has to choose from, although in the interest of fairness you should probably make this information public.

It's supposed to be unseen until the card is played, so I have a feeling I'd have a hard time being impartial.

MP owns the game too, I may ask her to run after a few rounds.

After PMing Guy to make sure it was okay, I know for sure I can commit to the game whenever y'all have the next round and would totes love to play now that I've got RL and E more together.

Congrats to Remi and the investigators!

Everyone in for another round? Unless anyone tells me otherwise, I'll start a new game with the same group (aside from Sherlock taking my seat) next round.

Unless an u one else volunteers as tribute, I'll roll between Assassini (your name is impossible to shorthand politely...) and Remi for the FS.

And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for you meddling kids! :P

I am most definitely up for another round.

And I am also totally up for GMing (and/or FS) when you want to just play, Guy. :-)

I'll GM a few more so you can play first. I think I've had more chances to play IRL than you have, plus it's fun and I'm still working on a database of cards.

*laughs hysterically* Cry me a river. Everyone says the same thing.

But yes, very keen for Round 2. Obviously.

I have to say though, the Accomplice seems like such a weak addition. Frankly people are too bright to really get confused by any less than obvious ploys to divert attention, so in reality all the card does is take one vote away from the Good Guys...

And we still had FOUR left!

Eh, not really. I mean, the wrong focus and people can get waaaaay off point. As I have discovered playing in person. Plus, the accomplice reduces the good guys number of available guesses.

With this size of a group though, it might not be a bad idea to have 5 Means and 5 evidence cards.
