XandiThe RulesRounds of play:
The game begins with a day phase during which the players may mingle and chat. That night, an NPC will be removed by the Tricksters, though no other active abilities will occur -- the Seer cannot scrye on anyone, etc. The next day phase will be the first lynch vote, when all players must vote for a player to be lynched that day. The lynched player's role will be revealed, and we will move on to the night phase.
At that time, all those players left who have an active role during the night (the Tricksters, the Seer, the Guardian, and, for this night, the Cupid) must PM their choices to Loki (Val). The night phase is also when Alchemist must also let me know if they would like to use their (one-time) ability. All choices will be tallied, and the results will be announced when the next day phase begins. If a player has been removed by the Tricksters, that player's role will be revealed. The next lynch vote will then begin, and the cycle continues until either the Deities, the Tricksters, or possibly the Lovers, are declared the winners.Other things you need to know:
The Roles3 Tricksters
- You may not vote to lynch yourself.
- Voting first should not be dangerous. I realize it can be hard to decide who to vote for, but please don't vote for anyone solely because that person spoke up first.
- Plotting and scheming are encouraged! Please be sure to copy me into any PM conversations you might have about the game with other players, however.
- Once you are removed from the game, your knowledge goes with you. Feel free to chat and socialize in the OOC thread, but please don't give away anything you might have learned.
- Ties in lynch votes will be broken randomly. There is no tie-breaking role in this game.
- Feel free to ask any questions you might have about the rules or the roles. This can be done either via PM or in the OOC thread.
- Have fun!
You're not sure why, but you feel compelled to make mischief. Each night, the Tricksters select one deity to remove from the game. If they are successful, that deity is sent back to Mount Olympus, with their memories returned, but only able to watch the game from their heavenly perch. Still, at least there's always plenty of ambrosia and nectar.7 Deities
Use your wits and the power of your votes to try to eliminate the rogue deities and return to Mount Olympus in triumph. Who knew life could still be so difficult, even with godlike powers?1 Seer ~ Athena
Your wisdom knows no bounds. Each night, you may select one other player and PM that person's name to Loki (Val) in order to learn their role.1 Guardian ~ Hestia
And the other deities said your role as protector of the home and hearth wasn't all that important. Each night, you may PM the name of one player to Loki (Val) in order to shield that player from the Tricksters. You may also protect yourself if you choose. Note that you cannot protect anyone from the lynch.1 Thunderbolt ~ Zeus
You've forgotten a lot, just like everyone else, but you still remember how to wield your thunderbolts when you really need to. If the Tricksters target you during the night, one of them (chosen randomly) will fall with you. Note that being lynched during the day cycle will not activate this ability. This is a passive ability.1 Hunter ~ Artemis
A well-placed arrow can make all the difference. If you are voted out during the day phase, you may select one other player to remove with you. Choose wisely! Note that being targeted by the Tricksters at night will not
activate this ability.1 Alchemist ~ Dionysus
In vino, veritas. At least, you hope so. Once during the game, during a night phase, you may target another player to remove by means of a special potion in their goblet of wine. If the chosen player is shielded by the Guardian that night, the ability will have no effect and may not be used again. The Invincible player, however (see below), can
still be removed by means of this potion.1 Invincible ~ Ares
You're awfully hard to get rid of, even when there's trickery involved. If you are targeted by the Tricksters during the night phase, they will be unable to remove you from the game. Note that the Alchemist's potion (see above) can
remove you from the game during a night phase, unless you are also shielded by the Guardian; and you can
still be voted out during the day.1 Cupid ~ Eros
Once a matchmaker, always a matchmaker. During the first night when abilities are active, you may choose two players to make into the Lovers. One of these players may be yourself. Note that you will not
learn the roles of either of the players you choose (unless one of them is yourself); you will only know that they are the Lovers as well as whatever other roles they might have. This is an active ability that may be used only once.
Becoming one of the Lovers does not alter any other abilities you might have. If both Lovers are Deities or both are Tricksters, their win condition does not change. If one is a Deity and the other a Trickster, however, the only way they can win is to be the last two players left standing. The Lovers will each learn the other's role upon becoming the Lovers, and they may trust each other implicitly. Removing one Lover, by any means, will remove the other Lover as well.
