In the tradition of Mafia and Werewolf/Werewolves of Miller's Hollow, we now bring you the Wars of the Roses! The game will begin once I have from ten to twelve players, with the roles below to be assigned randomly to the players:Roses:
Most players will be Roses, just trying to live through another night.Thorns:
There will be three Thorns, the evil influence in the garden, trying to destroy the Roses.Bees:
There will be one Bee, who can choose one other player during each night via PMs and request to learn that person's role from the storyteller (me). Ladybug:
Each night, the Ladybug will be able to send the name of one other player to the storyteller via PM, and thereby protect that person from the Thorns.
Just as in the usual game, any player can lie, deceive, or mislead as much as they think they can get away with, all in the name of having fun. Please don't quote anything directly from any PMs you might send or receive regarding the game; but any information you might get that way can be repeated in your own words as much as you like.
The traditional day/night cycle will remain. The first night, a Rose will die! (This will be an NPC, to allow all the players to survive at least one full day.) The next day, the players will vote on a character to be removed, and will discover if their choice was a wise one. That night, another will die at the hands of the Thorns, unless the Ladybug happens to intervene.
The Thorns will all know each other, but no one else will know who to trust. Can the Roses find the Thorns before the Thorns take over? Will the garden ever be safe again?
