    Meanwhile, in a small town not too far from the border of Oregon and Idaho...

    "HELLO LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IF YOU COULD ALL GATHER IN THE TOWN SQUARE, WE CAN BEGIN."

    You turn around and attempt to locate the source of the voice. It seems a group of men dressed in black business suits are calling people to the town square using a megaphone. "What do you want?", someone yells from across the street. The whole town begins to murmur.

    "PLEASE, STEP OVER HERE AND WE CAN BEGIN TO EXPLAIN."

    "WE'VE NOTICED THAT THIS TOWN COULD USE A LITTLE EXCITEMENT. WE'VE DECIDED TO PLAY A LITTLE GAME."

    You ponder what "game" these men could possibly want to you play. One of you shouts, "Before we do what you say, why do you tell us who you are?"

    "UNFORTUNATELY, WE CANNOT GIVE YOU OUR REAL NAME; HOWEVER, YOU MAY REFER TO US AS 'THE HOSTS'."

    Satisfied with this answer, you continue to listen.

    "WE ARE DIVIDING THE TOWN INTO THREE DIFFERENT GROUPS. THE FIRST GROUP WILL BE THE NEEDY. THEY ARE WHAT WE WILL REFER TO AS 'THE VILLAGE'."

    "THE SECOND GROUPS WILL BE THE NASTY AND THE NOTORIOUS. THEY ARE WHAT WE WILL REFER TO AS A 'MAFIA'."

    "THAT IS ALL. THE DAY IS GETTING LATE, AND YOU ARE ALL GOING TO NEED YOUR ENERGY TOMORROW. PLEASE GO TO BED."

    Very confused, you all decide to hit the hay and see what tomorrow morning brings.

    Sample PM (open)
    Dear <user>,

    You are George Washington.

    You are the first president of the United States of America. You also have wooden teeth and a white wig. More importantly, your face is on the one dollar bill. Because you are dead, you have allied yourself with The Needy.

    Each night, you may send a PM titled "Night X - Distracting <user> with my monetary value" to both Upside and BunnyMaster. <user> will notice you on the floor and will pick you up. They will then spend the entire night trying to decide how to spend their newfound fortune and will fail to complete their night action.

    You are allied with The Needy. You win if The Needy eliminate all threats.



    The Rules for those of you who don't remember (open)
    Stolen from the master list.

    1. Whilst you are alive you can talk to anyone about the game. Once you are dead you cannot talk to anyone about the game, unless you are mafia and on the same team, in which case you may talk with members of your team only, and only for strategy purposes. Knowledge acquired after death cannot be transferred from a dead player to a living player.

    2. Every user has a role PM. Role PMs may not be shown to other users on Night 0, but starting from Day 1 onwards they may be freely distributed. Screenshotting of all forms is banned. If anyone finds a person encouraging others to take screenshots or taking screenshots and showing other people, please be sure to report it.

    3. You can paste things told to you by the host. You may fake logs. Do not take pasting of a host conversation as definite proof, these can be faked. If you want to fake a log, feel free to PM one of the hosts for assistance. Impersonation of a host or another user however, is banned at all points. Please do not attempt to impersonate in any way.

    4. Each day will have a deadline of 48 hours. You may vote to lynch users during the day by posting "lynch USER" in bold, or "No lynch" if you don't want to lynch anyone (lynch votes will not count if they're not in the correct format!), and if you change your vote, you MUST edit the bolded text out of the old post if you post with a new vote. Once there is a majority as determined by the host, there will be a grace period of 2 hours, and if the majority is still in place after said grace period, the day will end. Please don't ask about when a majority is reached - once it's time for the day to end, it'll end (provided a host is there to update). The game will start on Night 0, and there will be no deaths Night 0.

    4.5. If there's a tie, there will be no lynch, and the game will continue.

    5. Each night will have a deadline of 48 hours. This gives you 48 hours to send your night action. Please state what you are doing in the PM title, it makes it MUCH easier to handle. Remember that PMs are to be sent to Upside AND BunnyMaster.

    5.5. If you're not going to do anything at night, send a PM titled "Night X - Idling". This makes keeping track of things easier and informs me that you're still playing the game.

    6. Priorities have been decided beforehand and will not be revealed.

    7. There are no items in this game

    8. Only sign up if you know you're going to be at least fairly active. If I notice that you seem to be idle, I reserve the right to have you forcefully subbed out if necessary. I'll most likely nudge first, though.

    9. We can proof read fake PMs if you feel it's necessary.

    10. Official channel for the game is #randomness. Also, IRC is absolutely required.

    11. Upside and BunnyMaster must be informed and given access to any spreadsheets or IRC channels that you create.

    12. No screenshots etc.

    Hosts don't like it when you claim thief, try something else :)
