  1. Cycle Two: Not the Yellow Brick Road The Amyrlin Seat was having a headache, one of those which even Halima wouldn’t be able to cure. And the source of that, was of course, the Sitters of the Hall. Even at times like these, they wouldn’t stop squabbling. What is wrong with them? They are literally more than 100 years old, and they behave like this. Just when she was about to adjourn the meeting, a Sitter from the Blue Ajah, Lelaine spoke up. “We have some information.. regarding last night’s events from our eyes-and-ears network. Ilyanna is causing some trouble. Many were witnesses to her strange behaviour. We believe she’s dangerous, and needs to be removed immediately” Discussion ensued and the Sitters were split on the subject. With no proper decision made, they all looked towards her. During the war, all decisions had to go through the Amyrlin Seat, so she had a hard decision to make. “No. We only have hearsay at this point. I’d like to give a chance to the young girl. If we even find a speck of the Dark One on her, consequences will be…” she left the words hanging. *** Reading and Connie were just returning after warning off Ilyanna. “Nasty business that. Do you think she’s a Black Ajah?” asked Reading. “Shhh, not so loud! And no, I don’t think they were Black Ajah. If they were they’d have been Stilled or executed, or both!” Reading shivered. “Do.. you maybe want to spar? You know, to keep ourselves sharp?” “That’s probably a good idea.” They made their way to the sparring arena and withdrew their weapons. After the initial exchange, they started trading blows severely, each trying to one up the other. Side-stepping, lunging, thrusting and slashing. Reading managed to land a nasty gash on Connie’s elbow, which opened them up to an attack from her. Without realising the intensity of the duel and the momentum of her attack, she lunged, piercing through Reading’s chest. Only then did she realise what she had done. She ran, in an attempt to get help from the Yellow Ajah, but deep inside, she knew. She had killed Reading. Note: The write-ups are not meant to be taken literally. They exist only for flavor. Lotus was attempted to be eliminated, but survived. Condensation was attacked, but survived. Shard of Reading was killed. They were Rebel Aes Sedai of the order Yellow Ajah. Vote Count: Lotus (6) : Matrim's Dice, James Brafin, Illwei, Dannex, Flyingbooks42, Devotary of Spontaneity Dannex (4) : Ashbringer, Breaker, Lotus, Liranil, StrikerEZ, Condensation Gears (1) : Quinn0928 StrikerEZ (1) : Archer Cycle 2 has begun and will end on January 16, at 23:30 IST [GMT + 05:30]. Please try to bold your votes, and give retractions in green. Don’t forget to put your actions in! Player List:
  2. “The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven…” The harsh environment of the Pantheon islands has gained a new threat. After their success on Patji, the Northern Interests Trading Company have been expanding their foothold in the Pantheon. Experience on Patji has taught a few of their number to survive the cruel jungle, allowing them to explore the islands as freely as the trappers do. Now their gaze has landed on the island of Amaji, and a small party has been sent to scout the island and weaken the resident trappers. The Game: 48 hour cycles, with combined Day and Night turns. Players get one vote and one action per cycle. Actions can include the Trader kill, Trapper special abilities, Aviar abilities (two can be used in one cycle) and giving Aviar to others. Factions: Traders - The Eliminator faction. Familiar enough with the Pantheon to pass as trappers, you are also equipped with advanced weaponry. You get one kill per cycle and can communicate in a doc; you win when your numbers are equal to the Trappers’. Trappers - Native to the Eelakin Isles, you've spent most of your lives in the harsh Pantheon jungle - first on Sori, now Amaji. You win by eliminating the Traders. The surviving Trapper with the most types of Aviar at the end of the game wins a bonus victory. Roles: The jungle has lessons to teach, for those able to learn. Aviar: Players can start with more than one Aviar. Players can have a max of 5 Aviar; up to two can be used in the same cycle. A player can give any number of their Aviar to another player, and they can also be stolen (see below). The first player to vote on the lynch target (excluding retracted votes) will receive one of the lynched player's Aviar at random. Aviar are otherwise lost when their owner dies. Caution: The Pantheon jungle is dangerous, and even the most experienced trappers can't afford to lower their guard. Each player receives a word or phrase (their 'code'), unique to them. They must include this word or phrase in a post a minimum of twice a cycle. Any player who does not has not been cautious enough. The first time is a free pass and will incur a warning. The second time, their code will be strongly hinted at in the writeup. The third time, they will die. If player A believes the code of player B is X, they may tell the GM ('Player B's code is X'). If correct, A steals all of B's Aviar (or as many as possible before reaching the cap). If incorrect, B steals one of A's Aviar. This does not count as your action, though only one guess may be made per cycle. Signups will run for 7 days; the game starts at 30th Jan, 10PM AEDT/11AM UTC/4AM MST Quick Links:
  3. The Setting You’ve followed Dalinar and his army to the lost city of Urithiru. With Alethi and other peoples arriving more and more every day, the city is becoming a rather bustling place, which is perfect for an agent such as yourself. What better way to subtly manipulate the decisions--especially with the Desolation nigh at hand? Unfortunately for you, you’re not the only one trying to control what’s going on. You’ve learned that there is another group working against your cause, and there are even rumors of a third group, undermining the other two. The Sons of Honor and the Ghostbloods have never gotten along, and now is no different. However, as people start disappearing from the city, you fear you might have to work together to solve the problem. Some of the disappearances are people you’ve never met and you think they might work for the other side, but others are people you know. Maybe the rumors are true. Maybe someone is trying to remove the other players in this politically manipulative game. Can you find them before they kill you too? The Teams There are three teams, spread between two factions. The members of each faction will not be publicly announced in the thread, but you will have an idea of who is on your team (more on that in a bit). Players’ alignments are not revealed upon death. Sons of Honor You’re a devout Vorin, and if you could go back to the times of old and bring the Hierocracy back, you would. In fact, you’re convinced that all you need to do is find the Voidbringers, because once they return, the Heralds will be back. And how can anyone deny Vorin dominance when their very gods are saving the people from the Desolation? Ghostbloods You’re a Ghostblood. Fascinated with the Desolations and the Parshendi, you’re not interested in causing another Desolation, and you certainly aren’t interested in another Hierocracy. You’d like nothing better than to stop the Everstorm and the Desolation from taking place, and you hope by being in Urithiru, you can have some effect in keeping it at bay. Diagrammists You believe in the Diagram written by King Taravangian. Devoted to bringing stability to Roshar, you’ve noticed that these two other groups, the Ghostbloods and the Sons of Honor, only seek to destabilize the political structures, making them easier to bend to their will. To stop them, you and a number of other Diagrammists have infiltrated the Ghostblood and Sons of Honor ranks, and you are intent to end their manipulations in Urithiru once and for all. You have one group kill per cycle and will have access to a Google Doc in which to conspire. The Roles To further your faction’s cause, you all have abilities that help you perform your tasks. Roles will be evenly distributed between the factions, and then randomly distributed among all faction members (including Diagrammists). Roles are not revealed upon death. Knight Radiants Amazingly, some of you have shown surgebinding potential and are well on your way to becoming Knight Radiants. With causes such as the ones you’re fighting for, you don’t expect to have any Radiants from Orders like the Windrunners, who rely far too much on honor, or the Skybreakers, who are driven by justice, which is something you tend to bend if it suits your purposes. However, not all the Orders are stuffy, and some of them are even pretty useful to your faction. Both factions have four Knight Radiants in their ranks, equally distributed between the factions. However, because there is only one Bondsmith in the game, the faction without the Bondsmith will get a random, fourth Radiant. Bondsmith - You’re all about uniting people under a common cause, and you believe your faction’s goals are the only way to bring about true unity in these trying times. You have access to the surges of Tension and Adhesion, but you can only use one per cycle. Tension - Each cycle, you can create a PM with one player. Send in your request to the GMs, who will set it up for you at the end of the cycle (accounting for any redirection and/or other blocking abilities). This PM can continue for as long as both participants are alive. Adhesion - Uniting people is what you do. Nothing brings you more joy than bringing two people together--particularly if those two people used to be enemies. You can choose two people each cycle, and on the following cycle, those two people must ultimately vote identically. The GM will PM the lucky two to tell them of this new, unbreakable (at least for a day) friendship. Edgedancer - You don’t care much for your faction's grand plans, but you figure that if you’re not there, the little details will get overlooked. Plus, you like putting your abilities to good use. You have access to the surges of Friction and Progression, but you can only use one per cycle. Progression - With the power of Regrowth, you like saving things, whether it’s making a nearly dead plant grow or healing an injured person. You can protect any player from one kill attempt each cycle, including lynch. However, you cannot save yourself. Friction - You’re so fast, you can sneak into someone’s private rooms, read all their messages, and get out before being seen. You can spy on all outgoing PM’s from one player per cycle. The recipient of the messages is not included. Lightweaver - A true artist, you’re less concerned about who wins and more concerned that such an historic time is documented. You’re still choosing to help out your faction, though, because what better way to make sure things stay interesting? You have access to the surges of Illumination and Transformation, but you can only use one per cycle. Illumination - redirect one random action from target to a different target Transformation - change a vote (including no vote) to another player Elsecaller - Some people might wonder why an Elsecaller, one of the more benevolent orders, is caught up in such schemes, but kindness is all based on perception, right? You believe your faction’s cause is what’s best for everyone, and you’ll do all you can to help people based on that belief. You have access to the surges of Transformation and Transportation, but you can only use one per cycle. Transformation - change the appearance (alignment and role) of a dead player for two cycles. Transportation - prevent any action on them that cycle--except lynches. (self-target) Other Professions Surgeon - You studied medicine in Kharbranth itself, learning at the best hospitals in the world. Your skills are second to none (although there are a few who are equally as good as you are). You can protect any player from one kill attempt per cycle, but you cannot protect yourself. Runner - Trained by one of the fastest messengers alive, you take pride in your speed of delivery. You’re among the fastest in Urithiru, making you a hot commodity. Each cycle, you can create a PM with one player. Send in your request to the GMs, who will set it up for you at the end of the cycle (accounting for any redirection and/or other blocking abilities). This PM can continue for as long as both participants are alive. Artifabrian - Although ardents are the only people allowed to use Soulcasting, it would, to say the very least, be rather naive to expect that rule to be strictly obeyed. As an artifabrian, you have engineered and experimented with a variety of fabrials in order to improve on your designs, some of which push the very boundaries of what is thought possible. Every cycle, you may pick a target. One random action that would affect the target comes to you instead. Ardent - As a member of the ardentia, you are a member of a key group in Alethi society. Being an ardent has its contradictions: while you are free from the customs and constraints governing each gender, your life is not your own; you are considered the property of a lighteyes, and are not permitted to own anything. More importantly, you have exclusive access to knowledge of Soulcasting and fabrials. Using this, you may change a vote (including no vote) to another player (or no one) each cycle. Cook - You learned your impressive culinary skills among the Horneaters, and you can cook a meal like these lowlanders haven’t ever tasted before. You know how to mask the most potent flavors in a dish, and occasionally, you’ve been known to use that skill for less-than-pleasant purposes. You’ve racked up quite the body count with some of your culinary surprises. Each cycle, you can attempt to kill any player. Veristitalian Scholar - For you, the past is never dead; it takes a clever mind to sift through the detritus to reconstruct history objectively--as things truly happened. Where historians seek to paint themselves in the most flattering light, you see yourself as a dispassionate seeker of the truth: for you know that in the past lies the answers to the future. Each cycle, you can research one of the dead to discover alignment and role. Explorer - You’ve been recruited by Dalinar to map out Urithiru. Spending your nights in the uninhabited regions of the lost city, you don’t see much other than your maps, and no one sees you either, until you surface in the morning. Every other cycle, you can prevent any and all actions targeting you, including lynches, from affecting you. Assassin - You’re a master assassin, and you have many skills at your disposal. You’re invisible when you want to be, you have a knack for learning the information you need to get into inaccessible places, and you see things others tend to miss. Unfortunately for you, your assassin services aren’t needed as much here in Urithiru, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use your other skills. You can watch a player any cycle, learning the identity of one random player who targeted them (regardless of whether the action succeeded or not) The Positions Every well-established group has a command structure. The Sons of Honor and Ghostbloods are no different. While not every member knows who all the others are, each one knows someone, and a few have even more knowledge. Positions are assigned randomly, with no distinction between loyal members of the faction and the Diagrammists. Thaidakar (Ghostbloods) and Restares (Sons of Honor) - You are the leader of your group. You know the identity of every member and the position they hold within. Commander - You report directly to your leader. As such, you know his identity. You also know the identities of the people who report to you. This is only a fraction of the members in the group though, as there are multiple Commanders. Captain - Reporting to the Commander, you know his identity but haven’t a clue who the leader is. That’s okay, though. You have enough responsibility as it is. You know the identities of a fraction of the Regular members. Regular - You’re just a regular member of the group, but that doesn’t mean you don’t get to have fun. You’re just as important as the others, except that you don’t quite know who’s on your side. You only know the identity of your Captain. Win Conditions Primary Win Condition Sons of Honor and Ghostbloods: Kill the Diagrammists Diagrammists: Kill everyone else. Secondary Win Condition Sons of Honor or Ghostbloods need to kill the other faction’s KRs. Each faction has four (only four Orders are in the game, but there is only one Bondsmith; the faction without the Bondsmith gets a random additional KR). The faction with the most KR’s alive if/when all Diagrammists are dead wins. The other loses. If both factions have an equal number of Radiants alive or all Radiants are dead, they tie and win together. Alternate Win Condition If an equal number of each team (Sons of Honor, Ghostbloods, and Diagrammists) is alive at any point in the game and the Bondsmith is still alive, the remaining players win together, united in one cause by the Bondsmith. All the dead players lose. Micellaneous Points of Order GMs: Wilson and Kasimir Order of Actions: Transportation/Explorer, Illumination/Artifabrian Assassin (starts watching) Progression/Surgeon, Tension/Runner, EC Transformation LW Transformation/Ardent, Friction, Adhesion Scholar Diagrammist kills, Cook Lynch Rollover Time: 9am MST/midnight SGT (4pm GMT) Number of Players/Role Distribution: In order for all roles to be in the game, there will need to be at least 26 players. This game can run on less, but not all the roles will be included, and we will not tell you which roles are not in the game. If there are more than 26 players, fantastic! Quick Links:
  4. Winter is ending, snow falling hard all around. The mountain passes have been covered in snow, keeping you all stuck in the Duladel trading outpost you visited late in the season. Hopefully the winter will be short, but now, a new pressure has arisen. Mai, a lonely trader, not one to talk much, was found outside the outpost, flayed and sacrificed. You know the signs, Followers of the Jeskeri Mysteries are stuck in the outpost with you, making their sacrifices daily. Snowed in, you have no chance but to find them and kill them before they kill you. All Traders: Must submit one vote through a PM to the GM(Mailliw73), once during every cycle hour period. These votes will be made public at the end of the period, and the most voted for player will be sent to die in the snow. You may vote however you wish in the thread, but the vote received in the PM will be your official vote. Anyone who does not either talk to the Outpost’s Owner(the GM), come to the community dinner meetings, or meet with other traders for two consecutive days will freeze in their rooms. Follower of the Mysteries: The followers of the Jeskeri Mysteries must each send one vote for sacrifice via PM to the GM (Mailliw73) per cycle in addition to their normal vote. The most voted for player, in this fashion, will be sacrificed for their own mysterious purpose. Priest of Jesker: The Priest of Jesker is a learned man, and can identify the sacrifice of the Jeskeri Mysteries, having tried to root them out in the past. The Priest may investigate one other player per day (by contacting the GM) to learn if they are a follower of the Mysteries or not. Jindoeese Soldier: The Jindoeese Soldier is trained in the art of ChayShan and can guard one player at night. Anyone who attacks the trader whom the Soldier is guarding will be fought off and the protected trader will not die. Rulo: The Rulo is the fool who managed to get himself stuck in a trading outpost he had no business being in. He’s a bit kayana, so every night he scrawls a message somewhere in the outpost, too bored to sleep. Seon Holder: The Seon Holder makes it so that anyone can send messages(PMs) to any other living players. As long as a Seon Holder is alive, there is no limit to PMs, except that the GM must be included in all of them. The game will start on Monday, November 23rd, at 3:30 MST. Cycles will be 24 hours long. Rollovers will be at 3:30 PM MST/10:30 PM GMT. Spec doc available upon request. The order of actions is as follows: Rulo Message Soldier Lynch Priest Sacrifice Quick Links:
  5. Warn crushed the missive in his hand and tossed it onto the floor of the cave. He took a moment to try and calm himself down, but failed. He turned his head towards his band of merry men (who were not quite so merry at the moment), daring one of them to ask what was wrong. None of them tried, not yet. He took another deep breath. He started to calm down. "Is one of you Soothing me?" he demanded, "You know I get a mite vexed when I'm Soothed," he added. He took a deep breath, and waited. When the presence on him remained, and no-one owned up, he drew one of his revolvers from his belt, and fired into the crowd of his 'employees'. Wilson, a Soother, fell to the floor, dead before she hit the ground. As expected, a few seconds later, the Soothing vanished. He walked forward to the corpse, the crowd opening up before him, and dug the bullet back out of the corpse's eye. There was no way in hell he would waste aluminium on these people, not when they could re-smelt more bullets out of it. "Now..." He stood back up and put the bullet in his pocket. "Now," he repeated. He hesitated as he looked down at the body of the unfortunate Soother. "Someone get this out of here before it gets a bit congealed," he added. Then he looked back up and tried again. "Now... We have traitors in our midst," he said, without any more preamble. The assembled glanced at each other warily. "Not just traitors. I could understand how a lot of money would tempt a man to kill his friends." It went without saying that they were friends. If they weren't, people tended to end up dead here. "But we have the lowest sort of traitor. Lawmen," he spat on the ground. "Not fit to kiss our boots, right gentlemen?" There was a bit of laughter there, the sort of nervous laughter that always occurred in any business when the boss made something that might or might not be a joke and was still fiddling with a gun idly. "So... You know me, right?" he asked genially, looking at them all and retrieving the piece of paper. "As the most educated person here," not said was the fact that he was also expelled from the University in Elendel, "I have already come up with a plan! Yes, a plan..." He unfolded the scrunched up paper and then folded it properly. He tutted to himself as he got blood on it, before storing it away in his pocket with the used bullet. There was silence for a few moments, before one brave soul asked, "A plan? Sir?" "Hm? Yes, yes, the plan... Well, it's pretty simple, isn't it? If you were as smart as me, you'd have realised that the only way to find the lawmen is to kill them, right? I mean, we can't just ask, can we? Stands to reason that they'd lie. Lawmen are like that. Liars. Stands to reason." More nervous glances. "What if they try to run?" "Run? No no, none of you are allowed to run. That defeats the purpose of this thing! How are we meant to find them if they're not here?" "But lawmen are tricky, right? What if they try to run anyway?" Warn looked at the man and raised a finger at him. "You're on thin ice here, boy," he said, giving him a glare. "Have you all no faith in your good old Captain?" No-one asked what he was Captain of. "I've already come up with a plan. Already come up with a plan..." He drew the second revolver and pointed it above their heads, at the mouth of the cavernous complex. Then the gun went off unexpectedly, and he dropped it, swearing. The bullet hit the ceiling, and then there was a rumbling. The keystone gone, the entire opening was suddenly beset by a rockslide. Debris filled the cave, blocking the entrance. "Well... Looks like my plan went off perfectly," Warn declared with a grin. He picked up the gun, which was letting off quick a bit of smoke from the barrel. "Someone get this fixed," he said, handing it off to someone, who regarded the bloody hand and gun cautiously before taking it, grimacing as they did. "Oh," Warn added, as if something had just struck him. "We're also out of some metals." He took another sheet of paper out from his other pocket. "Let's see... Pewter, steel, brass, lead, gold, brass -" he frowned. "I've said brass twice. Anyway, we're not out of chromium, but I'm pinching all of that..." He continued down the list. "Actually, best to say what we have. Aside from your own personal metalminds, which you should all be minding, we only have some iron, a bit bendalloy, some zinc, bronze and tin. Not enough to make new metalminds though. Pity we can't get more, but this is an emergency, right?" "Well, it's pretty dark in here, so I'm going to say that it's night now and go to sleep. I expect results, people!" He held out a coin. "I'll even give out fabulous prizes to people who do well!" He laughed as he left his 'employees' there, looking at each other with confusion. The ghost of his laughter echoed throughout the cavern as he left. Though it was left unsaid, each person there had the same thought: the Lawmen were probably the least of their worries while Warn was in charge. Quick Fix 7 is upon us, ladies and gentlespren! This game should run a bit quicker than most QF games due to the extra kill floating around, which I hope makes up a bit for the fact that it's a more complex Quick Fix game. General Rules Cycles will last two days apiece. As usual for a QF game, each Cycle, one person will be lynched and the Eliminators will make a kill. However, a major difference here is that a random player will also get a kill only usable that Cycle, known as the Smoking Gun. Players get two actions each Cycle, but these actions must be different (not different types, just different actions). Each Role requires an action to be used in a Cycle. Lynches are slightly different in this game as well. There is no threshold of votes that must be reached on a specific person in order for them to be lynched. In the event of a tie, a random player of those tied players will be lynched. Over the course of the game, a player may become injured if they are saved from death by an Archivist. Injured players have only one action for each Cycle following their injury, and do not count towards their side’s victory condition. Injured players cannot be healed in any way. The Lawmen know the identities of each other, and have a Google doc to conspire on. The Lawmen win if they outnumber the Scoundrels. The Scoundrels win if they eradicate all the Lawmen. If the Scoundrels win, the surviving member with the most money wins a personal victory and becomes their new leader. The full order of effects is: Spinner -> Sell -> Purchase -> Rioter -> Koloss Blooded -> Lynch -> Archivist -> Tineye -> Lawman Kill -> Smoking Gun -> Gambling -> Messages -> Transfer -> Seeker -> Lurcher -> Pulser -> Smoking Gun Distribution. Kill Actions Kill Actions work as in any other game. You target a player with your Kill Action, and this magically results in you shooting them with your gun, hopefully killing them. It's not even difficult - simple point and click interface. No distinction will be made between the type of Kill Action in either writeup or Tineye detection. The Smoking Gun kill takes place after the Lawman Kill. Each Cycle, one of the Lawman may impart justice on a player, and kill them using the Lawman Kill Action. The Smoking Gun is given to a player at random each Cycle (possibly even a Lawman). Players whose actions have been prevented the next Cycle by a Pulser are exempt. If a player who gets The Smoking Gun does not use it, then they will die instead. This ‘inactive’ death cannot be prevented in any way. Money Actions Players start with 4 coins. At the end of a Cycle, each player who posted in the thread gets a coin, and each player who voted also gets a second. Whenever a player dies, their money is distributed evenly amongst all players who either lynched or targeted that player on the Cycle of their death (rounded down, even potentially to 0). Vote Auctions - Each Cycle, players may Sell off their vote to another player. This counts as their action and cannot be retracted. Any other player may send an offer to the GM to purchase a vote from a specific player that offers it up, and who they would like it moved to. The highest bid wins, and that player's vote is changed. In the event of a tie, the first player to make the bid wins. For this purpose, all bids should be made in separate messages. Money is taken from the buyer and given to the seller, with a loss of 1 coin. The seller is not informed of who purchased it. The minimum bid is 2 coins. Bartering a vote uses an action. A player may attempt to purchase multiple votes at once, provided they can afford to do so if they win all of them. If they overspend on votes, their entire Purchase Action is lost. Gambling - A player may also Gamble their coins during the Cycle. Each player bets one coin, and twice that number are distributed randomly between all players gambling that night. This requires an action to use. Messaging - Players may also spend their money to Message another player anonymously (though they may of course sign the message) by sending this message to the GM. Within this message, they may also Transfer coins to another player, at no additional cost. While this requires an action to use, any number of messages can be sent as one action. Multiple messages can even be sent to the same player, if the messenger wishes. Each message sent costs 1 coin. Role Actions Koloss-Blooded - A player who is Koloss-Blooded can use their action to defend themselves during a Cycle, and will survive all deaths during that Cycle, completely unharmed. If they would have died this Cycle and this Role prevented it, they then lose this ability. Regardless of whether or not this ability is in effect, as you are neither a Allomancer or Feruchemist, you cannot be detected by Seekers and show up as Roleless. Archivist - An Archivist is able to use their Coppermind's stored knowledge on medicine to save a player from one attack each Cycle. A player saved from death by this will become injured instead. An injured player has only one action each Cycle and does not count for their side’s victory condition. An injured player cannot be saved again by an Archivist. This saves a player from one attack each Cycle, and takes effect before Koloss-Blooded triggers. Spinner - A Spinner’s Vote is safe from Rioters. They are immune to the effects of Pulsing if Spinning is used on the same Cycle a Pulser targets them. If they make a Kill Action, it cannot be prevented by Koloss-Blooded or Archivist. When Gambling, they will automatically win a coin before the normal distribution process occurs. These effects require an action to use. Pulser - A Pulser may target a player during each Cycle. The next Cycle, neither players' Votes nor Actions will take effect. A player whose Actions & Vote should be prevented this way will be informed, and they will not be given The Smoking Gun. As the user’s actions the following Cycle are prevented, this Action cannot be used on consecutive Cycles. If a Spinner is targeted while using their Role, the Pulser still feels the effects of their own Pulsing, even if the Spinner does not. Rioter - A Rioter is able to change another player’s vote each Cycle. This takes place after Auctioning decides where a vote is placed. If an Auctioned vote is changed (i.e., if the vote is not placed where the purchaser wants it), then the Auction is negated and no money changes hands. Tineye - A Tineye is a master of observation and detection. As an action, the Tineye may follow a player around and see if they use a Kill Action. The Tineye will be told who they killed or attempted to kill if so, but not whether it was The Smoking Gun or a Lawman Kill. Seeker - Seekers can use their action and target a player to discover their Role, if any. You cannot detect Koloss-Blooded this way. Lurcher - A Lurcher makes for rather an impressive thief, able to use their action to steal coins from another target player. The amount stolen is 33% of that player's coins, rounded down. Lurching occurs after all money-based actions. The game will begin on Tuesday the 14th of April, at 9PM GMT. Until then, have fun signing up and RPing and stuff Write ups:
  6. Good news, you managed to get a job in the finest army this nation has seen or will ever see, under the just Gavilar and his powerful brother Dalinar! Fight for the unity of all Alethkar! Fight for glory! Fight for riches! Fight for Shardblades! ...But it's not that simple. It never is. Hidden in within your army are spies and saboteurs – And not just from one Brightlord's army either! All you know is that the spies have been sent into your army in pairs to ensure secrecy, and that they're from several different armies. Even worse, you've not fought with most of the people around you before, and rare is the soldier who can vouch for someone else here. You don't even know what their job is around the camp, though you can probably guess in some cases. It will take careful thought and cooperation to find the ones that might be secretly planning your deaths... General Rules Events Spies Eye Colour Roles So, welcome to my second game. As before, I will answer any questions on the main thread, so feel free to throw them at me if you want anything clarified. If there are not as many players as I would like, some Role(s) may be left out. Some (Guardsman and Messenger) have also been slightly modified from previous iterations as well. The game will start Sunday 30th, at 8PM GMT. Cycles will last 48 hours each. Quick Links:
