Most players will be Roses, the villagers of Rosebriar, trying to keep their village safe.Thorns:
There will be three Thorns, who want to take over the village, at any cost.Bee:
There will be one Bee, who has the knack of learning others' roles. This player 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. They cannot protect anyone from being lynched by the villagers.The Rules:
Just as in the usual game of Mafia, 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, one of the Roses (an NPC) will die! 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 next day, the cycle repeats itself, until a winner is declared.
-Do not vote to lynch yourself.
-The Ladybug has the option to protect him/herself only once during each game.
-The Thorns will all know each other, but no one else will be sure who to trust. Will the village ever be safe again?
-Questions can be directed to me via PM, or asked in the OOC thread.
