Quick Fix Game 18: The Black Prism

QF18: The Black Prism

 
 

This is a standard quick fix elimination game. 24-hour day-night combined cycles.

Each player may PM two other people per cycle. This order must be sent in the cycle before. (If the player you target dies, you do not get a PM.)

There may or may not be secret roles.

Drafters

 

If a drafter drafts more than 7 times, they will become a wight and be executed immediately. There are seven different types of drafter, one for each color. Combinations (bichromes) are possible.

Sub-red

Sub red drafters may attempt every cycle to light someone’s room on fire and kill them. This has a 50% chance of working under normal circumstances, but if the room contains pyrejelly the attempt is guaranteed to work.

Red

Red drafters can cover a room with pyrejelly, blocking all actions used on that person.

Orange

As an orange drafter, you are very good at illusion. You can illusion someone else into voting with you. Thus you may change someone else’s vote, including no vote every cycle.

Yellow

Yellow drafters can create one yellow flare every cycle and give it to someone (including themselves). When that person dies, the role, name and alignment of their killer is revealed.

Green

Green drafters block the doorway, preventing the target from taking any actions.

Blue

A blue drafter is able to draft a luxin dagger and threaten a person with it to find out their role and alignment.

Superviolet

Superviolet drafters start with a doc. They can add one person to the doc each cycle.

Bichromes (drafters with two colors) are possible, and can use any one of their colors in any turn. To simplify matters, they will only have access to adjacent colors (ex. a bichrome with red luxin can also draft either sub-red or orange, but not green). Full Polychromes (drafters with every color) are also possible.

Non-drafters (and miscellanea)

Servants

Servants, by virtue of being able to wander about freely, can discover the role and alignment of a random person.

Prism

The prism is a full spectrum polychrome who is immune to becoming a wight.

Factions

 

Drafters

Standard Village faction. Note that although the faction is called Drafters, not every player will be a drafter. Win if they kill all spies within 10 cycles.

Spies

Standard Elimination faction. One kill per cycle, with a google doc in which to conspire. After 10 cycles, the Spies win even if they have not outnumbered the Drafters.

Voral Grim is in.

I haven't read the books, they are next on my list I swear, so I have no idea what this game will be like but that's part of the charm.

Oh yay! Black Prism game! This will be fun! (When's the fourth book coming out, does anybody know? It's been a while since I read the last one...)

RP character to come, sorry.

Clarifications:

Are there any secret roles or items? (Looking at you, Paryl Drafters...)

May I ask the point of this? Apart from showing whether they were killed by a sub-red village drafter or with the Eliminator kill, which is usually fairly obvious anyway, it looks pointless.

I haven't read the books or heard of them, but can't pass up my chance to . . . be nice to everyone. 'Smiles awkwardly'. Any who, Faren will join, also, what is the book series called?

The Lightbringer Series, by Brent Weeks. The Black Prism is the first book in the series. And I looked it up - the 4th out of 5 in the series is coming out October... *grins gleefully*

I've never read the books, and this is my first time using the 17th shard, so I'm a total noob. So, i have no idea what my name should be, so i'm wondering if one of you guys could give me a name.

How have all of you never heard of Brent Weeks and the Lightbringer series?!? You should all be ashamed of yourselves. :P 

All joking aside, I do recommend the series. The magic system is actually very unique and the story is shaping up to be quite epic. Weeks is probably my second favorite fantasy writer right now; coming after Sanderson, of course. 

I really shouldn't sign up. I didn't have enough time for the LG and so I doubt I'll have time for this either. But we'll see. If my schedule opens up a bit more after this upcoming week, I'll join in. We need at least one person who knows the source material after all! :P

I know it! *grumbles*

But Weeks is definitely in my top 10 authors and possibly in my top 5, and I do thoroughly recommend giving it a read. If you don't take my or Meta's word for it, then listen to Peter Ahlstrom talk about how awesome this series is.

I'm a little over 20 chapters through the first book.  I'm hoping to at least finish that one before the game starts.  So far it's shaping up to be a very good series.

Yeah, I'll definitely second this.  I still need to read more of the Lightbringer series though...
