Honestly it does.

But is that the most fun option?

 

 

For real though, whatever's best for the GM.

mad watcher watched. she was super good at watching. its how she got her name didntcha know? and auctions were great places to watch. especially the silent kind? so much watching trying to figure out who else was bidding on what you wanted and then ki - i mean. watch them. yep. just watch. mad watcher didn't do anything but watch. ever. its why she was mad at it - mad as in so good she was a mad watcher. you know? it certainly wasn't for anything else that word could mean. that would just be....well. mad.


so.....i guess this is happening? given the sudden ending of lg65 and orlok signing up for this, there's a tiny part of me that kinda wants to play again, even after the travesty of that qf months ago. so here we go. fair warning - imma be super casual this game. im thinking maybe a mix of burnt and stink casual. if you couldnt tell by my utter lack of capitalization and proper punctuation. :) also, mild request here - can i ask maybe dont kill me in the first 2-3 cycles? its been a looooonnng while since ive played a game, and even longer since ive played one for any decent length of time and id kinda like to play? twould be nice to see if i can still have fun, which didn't happen during the qf that shall not be mentioned. that qf is like voldemort now. it that must not be named. you dont want this game to become that way too do you? i keep typing commas and apostrophes and have to go back and delete them. this could be interesting. but anywayz. mad watcher signing up. woot.

mad watcher out.

Julius nodded at Silberfarben, turning and walking down the street. "You seem interesting. What would a lord be doing in a random alleyway?" He was genuinely curious.

"It is none of your business."

"Now, to something that is your business."

"Keeping your betters alive."

"Im thinking of getting rid of my current bodyguard, I might need another one."

"Do you think you could manage to die before I do?"

Trying to edit in a quote doesn’t really work. :P

But, in the future @Dot, do try to avoid double posting. :)

Archivald approached Lord Winsting's mansion, cane in hand. He was invited, of course, one could hardly host an event of that nature and not invite him, he represented too large a portion of the criminal element in the city for it to be any other way.

There would certainly be thieves and cons tonight, trying to steal the painting. They were fools, the painting was less than worthless. The thing truly on auction was Lord Winsting's vote, the people who were invited came for that. They were fools as well, the decisions of the government were inconsequential, with little to no impact on the lives of people like them. No, the true prize tonight was the people in attendance. A person could gain incredible power by making friends here, and that was the reason Archivald came here today.

As he neared the gate, he saw there were already several people there, waiting outside. He shook his head in disgust. Not letting your guests in if they were early? Barbaric.

"Who do I have the pleasure of meeting this fine evening? My name is Archivald." He didn't bother introducing himself any further, if they didn't know who he was, they didn't deserve his attention.

----------------------------------------

I'm not entirely sure who's there, so I'll just tag @Arraenae and @Experience, because I'm pretty sure about them.

He laughed. "So snarky. Well. Yeah I guess so. Got nothing much better to do. So, where do we start?"

No, there's just some pre-game roleplaying going on. It's just for fun, and feel free to join in.

Qwerty meep sauntered up to the door and saw people gathered around the door waiting to be let in. He curled his lip and edged around the crowd to avoid someone brushing against his new coat. He did not want to be here but if he was going to get that vote he needed to visit. He doubted that Winsting would want someone to send a go between to gain his vote. And he did not trust his inferiors to do the job right. He would go in, make his vote and leave. He wanted nothing to do with the crime lords of the city but it would have to be done. He settled into comfortable waiting position and resigned himself into waiting for the door to open and the bidding to start.

Wasn't expecting to come back anytime soon, but as always a game by Joe is too good to pass up.

I'll be in as Lord Laborn - my background will be filled in a bit more later ^_^

In general, AGs tend to have a high player count.

Ah. 

Well, who knew all you needed to get old Sharders back in the action was a global pandemic?

Posted (edited)

The Following changes are being made to the game due to how large it has gotten:

The Smuggler role has been changed to: You can cancel a player’s vote. If your action would cause a global tie, it is roleblocked. You cannot target the same player twice in a row. (Lynch vote or Dispersal vote)

The Impersonator role has been added: You can Move another player’s Lynch Vote. You cannot target players who have not voted. Your vote will be canceled as if escorted.

Sleeping has been altered. Previously, if you were asleep due to not posting or being Escorted, there was no mechanical change to you. Now, if you are asleep due to not posting or getting targeted by an escort the previous cycle, you cannot cast a Dispersal Vote.

Lord Winsting Can no longer use Faction Specific Roles. 

The Following Clarifications are being made:

If the Bodyguard protects a Gambling Tycoon, the bodyguard action is used up before the extra life is.

if the Renowned targets a player with two roles, they are told a random role. If they target that player again, they are told the other role.

Elbereth has banned me from giving everyone both the Bartender role and the  Gambling Tycoon role. Oh well.

Kills will not be differentiated between.


Additionally, I am capping this game at 30 participants. If more than 30 people sign up for this game, I will randomly choose 3 players who signed up after this post to play. The others will get to choose between pinch hitters and Spectators. There is a bit less than 44 hours left to sign up!

Well... I'll sign up as Muriel Ladrian.

I originally was just going to say spec doc, but with the LG ending and so many people in this game, I'd be kicking myself if I didn't join.

Just give everyone but one those roles. :) 

I'll take a seat in the Spectators area please.
