    Welcome to Lynch Mafia

    Deep in the bowels of #warau, five users have developed a winners circle. Something like this:

    [​IMG]

    While these users were indeed confident that they deserved to be in the circle, they were secretly plotting to backstab each other. But after all, like all #warau users, they eventually proved to be very blunt about their ambitions:

    <Gmax> cmax sucks
    <Gmax> tbh
    <Cmax> you must have mixed me up with billymills
    <Earthworm> bass guitar
    <Forte> What now EARTHWORM
    <billymills> you’re all fucking stupid
    -Gmax:#warau- war was declared

    <reyscarface> Guys, guys, guys, there’s no reason to be angry with eachother. I’m sure we can settle our differences in a very orderly and non-violent manner.
    <billymills> Is rey suggesting a lynch?
    <Gmax> I’d win a lynch any day.
    <Forte> Bring it.
    <Cmax> How about a cosplay lynch?
    <Gmax> Ok, but everyone has to vote cyzir d1.
    <Earthworm> bass guitars
    <Forte> When I was a kid I used to play with Earthworms in the dirt. Being ornery creatures and all, I split them in two. Gross! But that is the fate of all Earthworms.
    <Forte> 6 Stock, No Items, Final Destination only, No Meta Knight.
    <Earthworm> ok
    <reyscarface> Ok guys, PM me your characters and then we can start.
    <shade> You’re all bent
    * shade sets mode: +i
    * Earthworm was kicked by ChanServ (Requested (shade))
    * Gmax was kicked by ChanServ (Requested (shade))
    * Cmax was kicked by ChanServ (Requested (shade))
    * Forte was kicked by ChanServ (Requested (shade))
    * billymills was kicked by ChanServ (Requested (shade))
    <shade> gonna win

    You are Triple-Scoop Fudgetacular Chocolate-coated Waffle Cone, the leader of the Cookies ‘n’ Cream Alliance.

    [​IMG]

    Diabetes for 3$. Recently your ice cream monopoly has been challenged. The Buzzard Wizards have discovered a way to make you not only fat free, but sugar free as well. Bastards. The Moe Men are too absorbed in foreign cultures to buy ice cream, which has lead to lower than forecast profits.

    Fortunately, the Humans without Heuristics are on your side. Without the ability to make reasonable decisions they have been your most reliable customers. The Pastafarians seem indifferent to your cause, making them potential allies.

    Every night, you may PM billymills and Bass with “Night X - Tempting USER.” You will give USER an ice cream, and in exchange you will receive his complete unedited role PM.

    Your vote counts double negative and you may cast it privately.

    You win if the Buzzard Wizards and Moe Men are dead and at least one member of your faction is alive.

    You are Barujina@Wizard Hat, the crazy Buzzard Wizard.

    [​IMG]

    Even though you are technically a vulture, you don’t let that stop you from leading the Buzzard Wizards. Being buzzards, your men, er birds, aren’t capable of enjoying the sweet taste of ice-cream and have sworn that if they can’t have ice cream, no one else can either. They cannot stand stupidity either, being a bunch of wizards, and therefore being inherently smart. You will stop at nothing to destroy the Cookies n’ Cream alliance, as well as the Humans Without Heuristics, eliminating both ice-cream and stupidity. You enjoy pasta though, and you look forward to working with the Pastafarians in this war. The Moe Men are quite pathetic, and will be easily controlled once this war is over, so you wouldn’t mind working with them either.

    Every night, you may PM billymills and Bass with “Night X - Bird Bolt USER”. You will unleash a bolt of magic at USER, stunning him, and preventing him from completing his Night actions. If stunned thrice in a row, USER will be turned into a buzzard egg, and be dead for all intents and purposes for the next 3 cycles

    Your vote counts for 10 if you can cast it within 30 seconds of the deadline.

    You win if the Cookies n’ Cream Alliance and Humans Without Heuristics are dead and at least one member of your faction is alive.

    You are Date Masamune, the one and only One Eyed Dragon.

    [​IMG]

    ARE YOU READY GUYS? BRACE THE SOUL AGAIN! One of the finest warriors to grace Japan’s Sengoku era, you have recently been revived in modern times as a punkish, engrish spewing symbol of BURNING MANLY PASSION, whose presence is gravely needed in a time of large moe imbalance. LET’S GET SERIOUS! But fundamentally, you lack heuristics and rely on only the brute strength of your six swords, erm... I’m sorry, “claws”, and a horse decked out with handle bars and exhaust pipes because you can’t quite afford a motorcycle. But that’s seriously badass enough as is. Your gang also consists of likeminded followers who are human yet lack heuristics, but they will more than make up for it when they PUT THEIR GUNS ON against those pesky Buzzard Wizards and Pastafarians, who are seriously draining your passion.

    During the night, you may send billymills and Bass a PM with the subject “Night X - Phantom Dive USER”. You will draw all six of your claws, take a very large jump into the air, and slam down right into them with an electric swipe containing all of your passion right into your target, and I am afraid that there is nothing in this game that can survive that under any circumstances. Also, if you post “NO LIMIT!” in the thread, you will become immune to kills and lynches during the next day and night cycles. You will be unable to do anything the following two nights though, so use it wisely!

    HERE WE GO!

    You win if the Buzzard Wizards and Pastafarians are dead and at least one member of your faction is alive.

    Note: Expertly demonstrated by this role PM, bass is part of the humans without heuristics. -__-

    You are Bobby Henderson, the first of the Pastafarians.

    [​IMG]

    Your support for science and rationality has caused some tension between you and the Humans without Heuristics. However, they’re relatively, uhh, slow, so you’re safe for now. Unfortunately, when you decried “Pretty Cure is a fictional series,” the wrath of the Moe Men fell upon you. Who’d have thought?

    However, you aren’t completely screwed. Your ‘friends’ have been feuding recently, but you’ll be able to use this to your advantage. The Cookies ‘n’ Cream Alliance will be able to provide you with tasty treats, and the Buzzard Wizards with magical vultures. Not the most helpful, but it’ll all you’ve got!

    Every night, you can message yourself “Night x - Pray to GOD.” Where GOD is a deity of a specific religion. You will be granted the power to god-kill as many users as you want that night, given you are not disturbed during the night. This action can not be interrupted.

    Your vote does not count.

    You win if the Humans without Heuristics and Moe Men are dead and at least one member of your faction is alive.


    Just to be clear, reyscarface and shade play no special part in this game. Reyscarface was just the most level-headed person in #warau at the time and shade makes an excellent protractor.

    Here are the rules again. (open)


    1. Teams:

    • There are 5 teams each with 5 players each. No one is informed of the names of their teammates.
    • Each team has two teams it must eliminate for victory, but only one team can end up winning. In the event that multiple teams complete their win conditions at the same time, they will be set against each other.

    2. Lynches:

    • Every lynch lasts ~24 hours.
    • No lynch is not an option.
    • To vote, bold a person’s name in your post. If it is not bolded it will not count. If more than 1 name is bolded, your vote will not count.
    • To change a vote DO NOT EDIT YOUR POST. MAKE A NEW POST.
    • Deleted posts will be undeleted, Editted posts will be Godkilled. (Treat this like anon forums where you can’t change votes please.)
    • Most roles have a vote counting for some number other than 1.
    • Some roles are allowed to vote secretly. To do so, PM billymills and Bass with “Day x - USER.” Make sure that USER’s name is in the title.
    • Should a tie occur there are hidden tiebreakers.
    • About half the users in a team must vote publicly in the thread (these votes can be overridden by private votes if applicable). Should less than the required number of users vote, a member of the team will be god-killed for each missing vote.
    • Feel free to stealth lynch. The deadline will be publicized in the previous update and will be strict: any votes after the deadline will not count.

    3. Kills:

    • Each team has 2-one time kills that may be used on anyone during any night. Such kills are unblockable and have high priority.
    • To use a kill, more than half of the users in a team must send a PM to billymills and Bass titled “Night x - BUZZWORD USER.” BUZZWORD can be anything, but it must be the same for all users sending the PM.
    • If a user from a different team sends in a PM with the same BUZZWORD, the kill is nullified.
    • At least two members of a team must be alive to perform a kill.
    • If 2 or more sets of 2 or more members of the same team send in the same BUZZWORD, then that team will not be allowed to kill.
    • You are allowed to send in as many BUZZWORDs as you find necessary.
    • If a kill is used, the flavor will be a combination of the BUZZWORD flavor and the team flavor (it will be evident which team used a kill).
    • A dead person’s alliance and role name will be revealed, but not his power.
    • Once dead, you are not to dead-talk to any living player unless I give you permission.

    4. Night actions:

    • Night actions are to be sent at night or the previous day.
    • Priorities are not revealed.
    • All night actions revolve around either the previous day’s lynch or the following day’s lynch in some way or another.
    • There are no items.

    5. False PMs.

    • Most role names are chosen from the list of role names below.
    • Multiples of the same role name exist.
    • Flavor is generally simple and applicable to all factions. Role Names were randomly attached to factions.
    • Some powers are more common than others, so it may be a good idea to change around your power and alliance but not necessarily your flavor or role name.
    • Multiple people have contributed to writing role PMs and no effort was made to ensure they follow a similar theme. Though in some cases it is easy enough to guess which of us actually wrote it!
    • There are no roles that can determine a user’s alliance precisely.

    6. Important shit:

    • Deleted posts will be undeleted, Editted posts will be Godkilled. (Treat this like anon forums where you can’t change votes please.)
    • About half is defined as (2/5, 2/4, 1/3, 1/2, 0/1) for a team with 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 member respectively.
    • More than half is defined as (3/5, 3/4, 2/3, 2/2, N/A) for a team with 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 member respectively.
    • About half the users in a team must vote publically in the thread (these votes can be overridden by private votes if applicable). Should less than the required number of users vote, a member of the team will be god-killed for each missing vote.
    • If there are any questions whatsoever (and I imagine there will be a few) PM billymills on Smogon or on IRC.

    Oh hey everyone.

    Question to the hosts: Are we allowed edits within 15 minutes of original posts, for grammatical purposes? It seems like it would help cut down on double posts too. As long as we only change grammatical shit though, of course.

    Grammatical errors will be overlooked; editing them will not be. Try to treat this as if it were impossible to edit posts.
    I don't care if you say 'lyhcn Forte,' and neither should anyone else.


    Also all PMs should be out by now. If you did not receive one from me or Bass contact us asap.

    If you received more than one do not look at them and contact us asap.

    Small edit to Kills section:

    • If 2 or more sets of 2 or more members of the same team send in the same BUZZWORD, then that team will not be allowed to kill.
    • You are allowed to send in as many BUZZWORDs as you find necessary.
    Also Thorns has subbed in for Outlaw because Outlaw never signed up in the first place.

    Day 1

    As the night came to an end, you all awoke to find yourselves in the middle of a showdown. (Or if you're Australian I guess you went to sleep instead.)

    Some guys looked at some other guys. Some other guys looked at some other guys, but no one really had the balls to do much at all. As such, no one is missing, no one died.

    A few people say a few incoherent things. It's unclear what the discussion was about, but you seem to infer that it would be an unwise decision to lynch imperfectluck. Don't do it.

    Day 1 will end at 2 AM EST Wednesday, November 10, 2010 CE.

    nb: About half the users in a team (2/5) must vote publically in the thread today (these votes can be overridden by private votes if applicable).

    PMs are all sent.
