Rules: There is NO flaming allowed in any WitchHunt Thread, period. Each player gets a single vote, which must be posted in Bold and go as follows: "I vote to lynch so-and-so." Withdraws are bold and must be "I retract my vote on so-and-so1 and vote to lynch so-and-so2" or something similar. If you die, you can only make 1 post, and it CANNOT hold any new information - an example of an after-death post is "Good Luck Townies!" or "The Witches will Rule You All!" This is a game, so try to keep it civil. No communication can occur outside the game thread unless stated otherwise by the moderator. You can make a role-claim (claim you have a power role) but you cannot back it up with proof from the admin. This means that the enemy can claim to be good (after all, they're evil). You cannot edit a post that has been made. No ratings can be given to the game thread. If you have an opinion, say it out loud! The Game Mod has absolute Last Say in all disputes, and reserves the right to dish out the pain based on what rules people break. Breaking ANY rules is grounds for being removed from the game in an instant and complete death sequence, which will by default be insulting and humiliating because you cheated. That said, it is up to the game moderator (mod) to decide the punishment for breaking rules. Teams: Note: The specifics of each team can be changed with games, and the number of people on each team depends on the number of players overall. There will ALWAYS be a Healer and Banshee. Witches: Evil and Cruel, the Witches seek to ensnare the world in darkness and death, sacrificing most of the town to summon to Dark Banshee, Mrs. Baver. They win when they equal or outnumber the town. The Witches can communicate outside of the Game Thread. They're team consists of: The Hag: An evil and ancient witch, The Hag can see what another person's role in the world is with her clairvoyance each nightfall. They can also place a vote. The Banshee: An evil soul of immense power, the Banshee can slay 1 person each nightfall, with a total number of kills based on the player count for the game. Every 5 players adds 1 kill to the Banshee's power. The Sisters: Lacking special powers, The Sisters are merely evil witches who seek to destroy all of Ceardia! They can place a vote, but have no special powers. - If there are more than 20 players, The Sisters will gain 2 turns, that is, they can add 2 players to their number as witches.The Town: The town is a scattered and indecisive group. They cannot communicate outside the game thread unless stated otherwise by an ability or moderator. Priest: The Priest can use the guidance of Cayorion to find out the role of 1 person each nightfall. The Priest can speak with those he has found, but they cannot speak to him. He can also place a vote. The Paladin: A skilled warrior who wields a mighty sword forged from a holy cross, the Paladin can instantly slay another player. The number of kills the Paladin has increases by 1 for every 5 players in the game. They can place a vote. The Healer: A master of herbs and light magics, the Healer can protect any 1 player each nightfall from both the Paladin's sword and the Banshee's curse. They can place a vote. Commoners: Commoners are the townsfolk, who posses no powers beyond a vote and their voice. They can discuss things openly and can vote to lynch people.The Werewolf: A being that is neither good nor evil, the Werewolf can kill 3 people. The werewolf wins if he/she kills both the Priest and the Banshee, at which point it is the only remaining 'boss' in the game. Note: The Werewolf may or may not exist. That depends on a role of the die.Game Mechanics: Nightfall: Nightfall is when all of the major events of the game occur. They follow this pattern (always): Untimely Deaths - If you do not vote for someone you will die a humiliating and untimely death. The Lynch - Whoever has the most votes is killed by the town in some way or another. Investigation - The Priest and the Hag's investigations are both sent to them now. Hits - The Banshee, Paladin, and Werewolf hits come after the Lynch. Protection - The Healer can find someone who has been hit by the above and save their life, protecting them from death.Day: The daytime is when all the individuals assume their cover and discuss the nightfall events. This is also when votes are placed. Daytime lasts 48 hours exactly. Votes: Votes are placed on individuals you think are a part of the opposing team. Witches want to get Townfolk killed off, Townfolk want to kill off all of the Witches.Background: In the small town of SilverEdge, there ruled a kind and friendly mayor known as Mon Marty. This mayor was aware of a problem in his town, of people hearing strange sounds at night and of some of the townsfolk becoming more quiet and isolated from the rest. Worried about his people, the kind mayor brought in a Priest from a nearby city called Regalia, who then stated that he sensed the evil powers of Dark Banshee pervading the town. The Priest summoned a Healer and a Paladin from his city, and they were prepared to go onto a hunt for the foul people who followed the Dark Banshee. At the moment before they were to begin, however, the town was shrouded in darkness, and when the darkness lifted, no one could tell who was who! Everyone was identical, but the darkness could not destroy the Powers of Light that the three outsiders had brought with them, nor the Wild Power of a town local. When the darkness lifted fully, only Mon Marty was recognized by the people, and could recognize them. As he lifted his hand to point out the Priest, a bolt of lighting fell from the sky and turned the kind mayor into stone. The town in chaos, no one knowing who was who, everyone was forced to discuss the events and attempt to figure out what had happened and who the followers of the Dark Banshee were. Now though, they knew not what their friends or family looked like, and so had to rely entirely on what was said, or not said. The WitchHunt had begun, and no one but the Witches know who's good or evil. Do not post yet! Only post when I say "Game On". I request that people not playing refrain from posting in this thread. If you DO post I will request an admin remove the comment.
