Werewolves of Miller's Hollow - Game Thread [Town wins!]
« on: December 06, 2017, 12:30:08 AM »
Welcome to Miller's Hollow!

Chances are good that you've lived here all your life. You've known your neighbors since you were in diapers, and they may well have helped raise you. Everything is familiar, comforting. Every day is like the last, and the village is content (if not a little dull). Little do the villagers know that they are about to experience some dreaded excitement! Horror! Death! Murder! Betrayal!

Wolves!

Sleepy little Miller's Hollow is about to wake up!



A review of the rules (for myself as well as y'all):

1. Make sure to include Trieste on any game-related PMs that go back and forth. If you notice that someone forgot to include me, no sweat, just add my name to the thread and quote the previous PMs. Easy-peasy.

2. You have no friends. Okay, not really. xD But if your bestie and you end up on different teams, please do play your team in good faith. That makes it more fun for everyone.

3. Dead men tell no tales. If you've died in-game, you're absolutely welcome to use the OOC chatter and such, but please refrain from discussing the game. That helps keep it fun!

4. Hold the copypasta, please. With the exception of rule #1 up above, there's no copy/pasting or using the quote function in PMs. Everything is hearsay and you have to decide whether you trust the person conveying the info!

5. Have fun! This is one of my favorite party games and I'm super stoked to be playing it again with y'all! Squee!

The original MH GM, Xillen, wrote out an awesome post on the rules here if you'd like to refresh yourself.



Because we have so few players, I'm going to reveal the wolves to one another right away. You'll all be getting your role PMs shortly. The roles in this game are as follows:

Villager
Seer
Watcher
Jailer
Hunter
Vigilante
Big Bad Wolf
Teen Wolf
Sheepy Wolf [Wolf in Sheep's Clothing]

An explanation of each role can be found both in my initial interest post and also in the thread I linked that Xillen wrote. So, without further ado, on with the show! PM me your questions or post them in the OOC thread, please, if you have them. I'll be opening the voting for Sheriff once I get role PMs sent out.

Okay, everyone should have their roles now. If you didn't get a PM telling you your role, please let me know ASAP so I can get it to you.

That said, voting is now open for Sheriff. (Some games might have called it the Mayor in the past, but whatevs, I have a thing for Westerns.) The Sheriff is the tiebreaker in case of an even vote. If the Sheriff dies, a new one is elected before anything further is voted on or happens.

Your choices, in alphabetical order, are:

Blythe
Caeli
Imogen
Kazyth
Ket
Madame Professor
Mintprincess
persephone325
Remiel
Rummy Tum Tum
Scott

Blythe, nothing but a simple villager, declares, "Hmmmm. I shall vote for Scott for Sheriff. Because I like alliteration."

"Although I appreciate the nomination for such an honorable position, as well as the new word I just learned. I must recluse myself on the basis that saying "Sheriff Rummy Tum Tum" is just a lot more fun than saying a simple... Scott. "

Imogen nodded at the Professor. "It feels wrong to favor one over another, but a town must have a Sheriff. I will put my faith in Scott, for now."

Blythe beams, "I have no objection to being Sheriff, so thanks for your vote Rummy! Though I probably don't have the job requirements for it. Is a brilliant personality but no proficiency with firearms good enough? I'd want to keep people safe, but the result might be me hugging the werewolves away. Or having a sharp word with their mothers. Or bribing them with delicious non-people flavored snacks, like pudding, the keep them away."

Kaz scratches his chin thoughtfully, glancing from candidate to candidate, before scrawling the name "Remiel" on a piece of paper and tossing it into the hat.

If there is no hat, he uses his own hat.  Don't worry, he has more!

*imagines the possibility of a knock down, drag out fight to the pistolas for the sheriff's badge* With only one vote left but mine, it's so dang possible there could be a tie and we could get a helluva show on our hands! *giggles and holds up a sign that says Scott for Sheriff!*

"Ket. Because I think a beautiful lady would do well in such a position of power!" Persephone nodded sagely.

Imogen raises a brow and takes a long, hard look at Persephone. "Surely it has not escaped your notice that your vote is the last? Surely, you also noticed that only Remiel and Scott have a chance at becoming Sheriff at this point?"

She spreads out her hands questioningly. "I am at a loss to understand why you'd vote for Ket in that situation? Oh, you expressed your admiration for her but wouldn't it be more logical to support her vote in that case, knowing that Ket will not become Sheriff, at least not with the votes being as they are?"

"You not only did not support her choice, but by voting for her with charming words and compliments, you ensured that her choice doesn't become Sheriff - which means that, rather than being her ally as your words suggest, you place yourself opposite her? I do not know which choice is right, but I find the mismatch between what you preach and what you practice rather alarming."

"You see... In your position, your only choices are Remiel and Scott as any vote that doesn't force the tie will put Remiel in power," she explained. "As far as we know, Remiel and Scott are equal in their potential of being a good choice, which is why I am surprised that you voted for your choice in the one manner that suggests - when we look solely at the voting and not the circumstances - that you had no hand in the outcome."

“And yet guarantees Remiel without actually having to vote for him looks mighty shady for you both.” Mint adds, finding Imogen’s comments very on point.

"It honestly does not matter who I voted for, since I was last. As Madame noted earlier, how can we put so much trust in one person when knowing so little? It was a random vote, just as I take yours to be. I chose to vote for who I wanted to vote for, as did you. I did not realize I needed to vote for one of two people, when there are a handful of others I could choose from." She shrugs.

“And yet guarantees Remiel without actually having to vote for him looks mighty shady for you both.” Mint adds, finding Imogen’s comments very on point.

"Says the woman who voted for him." She sighs and shakes her head. "Such madness already..." She says sadly.

Kazyth slips on a cowboy had, tucks his thumbs into his belt, and puts a little twang into his voice.  "Obviously, the best choice here is to elect a man of unchallenged authority, masculinity, and possessed of a keen analytical mind.  But you'll probably just have to settle for me tossin' my hat in the ring for a re-vote."

A bunch of "Kazyth For Sheriff" buttons are produced, some sashes, signs, and a petition for a second round of voting are all placed on a table.
