The Vikings were a great civilization. They conquered much of England. They discovered Iceland. They discovered Greenland. They discovered Canada (I'll admit, not one of their finest discoveries, but that's alright. But what you may now know about them is that they time traveled. Yes. Long ago, the Vikings discovered the Secret of Time Traveling. They visited many civilizations, both past, present, and future, and along the way they incurred much wrath. The Vikings, who had long been torn apart by internal warring, had to band together to face the hordes of enemies after the Secret of Time Traveling. First and foremost, they incurred the wrath of the popular Monty Python troupe, who decided to obtain the SoTT by slipping into their other skins, and becoming the Monty Python and the Holy Grail Characters. They also incurred the wrath of a group of interstellar, intergalactic space people who we will call the Time Travelers, because that's what they call themselves. Each is after the SoTT, but only one can get it. Who will it be? To clarify: There are two main village factions, the Vikings, and the Monty Python and the Holy Grail Characters, or MPHGCs. The Time Travelers are a smaller mafia-esque faction. There may be others as well, but then again, there may not be. The Secret of Time Traveling, or SoTT, is an item that has no major effect except that your faction must be holding it (and must have eliminated all threats) in order to win. The Vikings start out with the SoTT. Rules (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Rules (open) Rules (close) 1. While you are alive, feel free to talk about the game. Once you have died in Smogon name and post restrict, you may not discuss the game with anyone not allied with you, save rule 34. You may not share information you gained after death unless your role allows you to, or someone else's role allows them to talk to you. 2. The game will begin on Night 0. There will be no kills on Night 0. During Night 0, no one may paste their Role PM. Role PMs may be freely distributed starting from Day 1. PM Polelover44 and/or Quagsires for help in faking a role PM. Which you probably should do. 3. Do not take grammatical errors in PMs as proof of faking. We are human and can make mistakes. We have tried to keep all text relatively the same, but there may be discrepancies (but not as many as ours past games). If you believe there are, PM us and we will correct them. Do NOT correct them yourself. 4. You may paste things the hosts tell you, but do not anticipate everything we tell you is true. You can paste fake logs; PM Polelover44 or Quagsires for help faking a log. Screenshots are allowed, but these are no more trustworthy than someone saying something. 5. Each Day period will last 48 hours at the start, then be cut to 24 as people die. There is no shortened time for majority because you have Day Actions. There are grace periods as we are working on the update after majority is reached, at a minimum of 1 hour. There is no announcement of what majority is or when its reached. Don't ask. 6. We will allow stealth lynching if you can successfully pull this off. Good luck. You'll need it. 7. During the day you must bold your vote and post flavor <user> OR flavor <alias>. To change your vote, you must edit your original post with your new vote. You may choose to No Lynch during the day as well, and any votes towards a dead user (if he or she has been godkilled) will count as No Lynch. If you wish to vote for nothing at that time but have already voted, unbold your original vote and state something along the lines that it is retracted. Any ties will result in a no lynch. 8. Each Night period will last 48 hours or until all PMs have been received. This will be cut to 24 as people die. 9. Feel free to target dead users with your abilities. We cannot say if anything will come of this, and it is very likely nothing will happen. However, there are exceptions. 10. Priorities have been set beforehand. You don't get to know them until the game ends. 11. There are items in this game. To give your item away, include "Give ITEM to USER" in the body of your PM. Items can be stolen and there is no limit to the number of items that may be held, besides common sense. Item passing is also guaranteed to be the lowest priority, breakable by kills and kidnaps 12. Don't ask what happens to items after someone dies, we'll let you know if you receive the item. There are items in this game that will turn to dust once the holder dies though 13. Inform Polelover44 and Quagsires of all channels, spreadsheets, etc. you make for this game. Give us access: ask for our emails, our registered IRC nicks are Polelover44 and Quagsires. 14. IRC will be of great assistance to you in this game and other users may be very annoyed if you don't have it, to the point of asking you to be subbed out if you don't. It's not that hard to gain access to: you never have to pay to use mIRC if you hit Continue twice, Mibbit is free, etc. 15. Send all PMs to Polelover44 and Quagsires so we can both update. If you are choosing to idle, please PM "NX - Idling" so we know you are active. 16. Be active or get out. You will almost assuredly lose this game if you are not active and anyone who could rely on you will be hampered by your inactivity. We will send a warning PM if you do not send a PM a night/day. After that, we will sub you out. We will NOT postpone deadlines if you do not meet them unless you ask us to give you an extra hour to discuss/coordinate. We WILL ask for subs on anyone who signed up and didn't get in. 17. If a role PM and the rules clash in something, the role PM takes precedence. 18. We are your hosts and we will be writing the Postgame, so please talk to us about your thoughts on the game. While we cannot confirm or deny any suspicions you may have, we would love to hear them. We would also like reasons for your actions if possible. The win condition for everyone is, "You are allied with the _________. You win when you eliminate all threats. 20. If you post in the thread when silenced or kidnapped, break a posting restriction, n, or fail to vote for the person you were persuaded to vote for, you will be godkilled. We will be making it very clear what you can and cannot do (Spiffy), should one of these actions be directed your way, so you will have no excuse for not following the guidelines. 21. The official IRC channel will be #channel. Failure to join will hurt you badly gamewise and make us and everyone else want you to be subbed out. 22. If you have a non-information role, you will not receive a result unless it fails. If you think you should have received a result PM but did not, you should contact the host that performed the last update, or the other one if they appear to be free to review your case. 23. This is a 1 vs. 2 game. Whether we're telling the truth here or not is up to you to decide 24. The only way to kill during the day is a lynch, and Night Actions affect Night Actions AND items, so if someone is hooked, they will not use their item either. 25. There is a spoon. This is reality, Neo. 26. Aliases are in this game. PM Quagsires and Polelover44 with an alias you wish to use in the game, or a request for us to choose one for you. People must target aliases and people separately, except in lynches 27. You do not die until both your alias and your Smogon name are dead. If your alias dies, you cannot use an item. If your smogon name dies, you cannot use your ability. 28. You may PM Quagsires and Polelover44 daily with, "Day x- Electing <user> as leader of the <faction name>. <User> does not have to be a member of the faction, but he will control the kill for that faction if he gets the most votes and if the faction kills that night. The day's length will not necessarily wait until everyone gets their votes in though, in cases of early updates. 29. Don't break the game. 30. This is an open theme game. While the factions definitely have some sort of connection to their members, there are some who barely resemble their faction's theme 31. Lynching kills the user AND the alias, if one of them is not dead already. Any votes cast for an alias will count for the user, and vice versa. If the user or alias is dead, the vote will go towards whichever is still alive. If both are dead, it counts as no lynch. 32. We are human and can make mistakes, if you're going to bitch and moan about any mistakes we may or may not make, don't bother signing up. That said, I (polelover) will attempt to cut down on the mistakes I made in past games. Please refer to rule #3 if you catch a mistake. 33. EVERYONE has a post restrict corresponding to someone else's role name in their faction. However, we have set this up so that factions cannot unite using these, but at the least you can find an ally. If you break the restriction, see rule 20. We admit some may be interperted in several ways as well, so do not blame us if you misinterpert someone else's post restrict as a different role name 34. Once per game, once at least 10 players are completely dead, you may pm Quagsires and Polelover44 with, "Night X- Broadcast. The text of that pm will be an anonymous message the next day. We reserve the right to refuse to air the message or edit the contents if we believe it directly points to you being the sender (ie no saying I'm not the spy) Alive: 20 AthenodorosDeinosaur Blue_Tornado BrammiStevenSnype Captain Bagman Ditto Fatecrashers Fire BlastDaenym HD Hydrattler Khz Lady Salamance Paperblade Pyromaniac Terrador14 theangryscientistUndisputed Tsuk Wickdaggler Wildeep Yeti Zorbees Aliases Alive: 22 Andreaea Aphakic Banana Hammock Baroswitch Chowder Colpocele Contam Helvella Human After All Kraig Galleher LastStrike Lyginopteridales Lyonnais Mogilalia Mudsucker Nonputrescence Parkeriaceae USsux Undermediator antireaction antishrike fluffy Dead: 3 subphosphate/alias/Grand Moff Tarkin/hook + ability copy/Time Travelers/Smashed to Bits Night 1 LightWolf/user/William the Conqueror/hook/Vikings/Choked and Account Hacked Night 1 Nightmare Jigglypuff/user/Man Who's Not Dead/infinite rogue/Monty Python and the Holy Grail Charaters/Died of Plague Night 1 Galladiator/user/Ivar The Boneless/bodyguard/Vikings/Smashed to Bits Night 2 LifeAdmiral/user/Saint Olaf/reverse martyr/Vikings/Committed Suicied Night 2/alias Reinstruction, Blown to tiny Bits Night 2 ginganinja/user/Arthur, King of the Britains/Negative Mayor/Monty Python and the Holy Grail Characters/Alias Níðhöggr/Lynched Day 3 The game will start on Night 0, when all Role PMs are out.
