HOW TO PLAY

1. There will be two teams, the INNOCENTS and the VAMPIRES. Initially, there are approximately 80% Innocents and 20% Vampires. There is also an unallied SERIAL KILLER who does not belong to either team. More about him later.

2. * The VAMPIRES will all be made aware of each others identities and will be informed of such by me via PM, and will work together.
* The INNOCENTS will also need to work as a team, but none of them will know whether another player is a Human (or Human-allied) or a Vampire.

3. There will be two phases, the DAY PHASE, and the NIGHT PHASE.

* In the DAY PHASE everyone will vote on the thread to STAKE one of the players as a VAMPIRE. The species and alignment of the Staked player will be revealed, and they will be eliminated.
* In the NIGHT PHASE the Vampires will choose a human to turn into a Vampire; by PMing me. They must also select and tell me which one of them will do the turning. (The Vampires may also choose to just kill someone instead of turning them, though it is almost always in the Vampires' interests to turn someone to increase their numbers.)

A "turned" human will become a VAMPIRE and be privy to the identities of the other Vampires, and will automatically become allied with them. A killed human will be eliminated.

4. The day and night phases will alternate until a win condition is met:
* The INNOCENTS win if they kill off all the Vampires and the Serial Killer.
* The VAMPIRES win once they make up at least 50% of the population, and the Serial Killer has been killed or turned.
* The SERIAL KILLER wins if he is one of the final 2 surviving players.

5. * Each day phase shall last at least 24 hours real time.
* Each night phase shall last at least 24 hours real time.
* The durations of the Day and Night phases will be longer in real time over weekends, since some people actually have real lives in meatspace. :eek:
* The durations of the Day and Night phases *may* be reduced below the minimums above when the end of the game grows near.

Note: 1. The choice of either a male or female pronoun for each Special Role is random and purely for convenience. It says nothing about the actual gender of the player assigned the role.

2.Due to the relatively small number of players that have signed up for this game:
there are NO "surprise/secret" special roles. All roles are listed here;
there are NO secret items.



SPECIAL ROLES 1: VILLAINS

1. BOURBON VAMPIRE
Species: Vampire
Alignment: Vampires

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8264615/TVD/Characters/__damonBourbon.jpg

How many in this game? 1

Nature of role: Disabling, "Turning", Killing

The BOURBON VAMPIRE is like any other Vampire, except that he has an unlimited supply of Bourbon Whiskey.

Each evening, the BOURBON VAMPIRE quietly leaves a bottle of Bourbon at the door of one of the players. The player finds the whiskey, drinks the whole bottle, and passes out for the rest of the night. If the player concerned has a special night role, they will be unable to carry it out, because they would have passed out.

The Bourbon Vampire must PM me his target; he is allowed and encouraged to do so in the day phase due to the rules of chronology described later in this thread. Nevertheless, the Bourbon will only be actually delivered at the start of the night phase. He should also PM me a secondary target, in case his primary target is staked that day.

The Bourbon Vampire's special role is known to all other Vampires. He may discuss whom to send bourbon with his fellow Vampires, but the final decision is his own.

Identity Revelation: Revealed at the end of the game.

Special Notes:
Bourbon may not be sent to the same person on two consecutive days.


2. SERIAL KILLER
Species: Human
Alignment: Solo

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8264615/TVD/Characters/__evilaric.jpg

How many in this game? 1

Nature of role: Serial Killer

Once a respected Vampire Hunter himself, the SERIAL KILLER is now insane, and wants to kill anyone and everyone - Vampires and Innocents alike.

Each night phase, he may choose to kill any player.

The SERIAL KILLER wins the game if, and only if, he is one of the last 2 surviving players.

Identity Revelation: Revealed upon the Serial Killer's death.

Special Notes:
May be turned into a regular Vampire just like any other human.

Abi
04-20-14, 08:45 AM
SPECIAL ROLES 2: INNOCENTS

3. SHERIFF
Species: Human
Alignment: Innocents

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8264615/TVD/Characters/__liz_forbesSheriff.jpg

How many in this game? 1

Nature of role: Investigative, Tiebreaker

The SHERIFF is one the Innocents' greatest assets, and The Vampires' greatest threats.

Each night, the SHERIFF chooses one player to investigate, and can determine using an enchanted compass whether or not they are a VAMPIRE. If the Sheriff identifies a Vampire it is up to her to convince the rest of the players to stake the fiend the next day.

The Sheriff's compass cannot identify the Serial Killer as he is human, and so is immune to her investigations.

The Sheriff must PM me the name of one player to investigate each night phase, and I will inform her of the chosen player's species.

In the event of a tie for who to stake, the person the SHERIFF voted for will be staked. If there is a tie and the Sheriff is out of play, did not vote, or voted for someone other than the individuals involved in the tie, there will be no staking that day.

Identity Revelation: Only Revealed at the end of the game.

Special Notes: A human turned into a Vampire on night X will be regarded as being in transition for the duration of night X, and will investigate as human. Therefore, there is no reason for the Sheriff to delay her investigation till the end of the Night Phase. Similarly, there is no reason for the Vampires to delay turning their target.



4. DOCTOR
Species: Human
Alignment: Innocents

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8264615/TVD/Characters/__meredithDoctor.png

How many in this game? 1

Nature of role: Protective, Disabling

The DOCTOR is a PROTECTOR of the Innocents.

Each night, the DOCTOR sneaks into one player's room, and injects them with vervain which is toxic to Vampires.

If the injected party is:
* Human - she will be immune to any attacks by Vampires that night.
* Vampire - she will be knocked unconscious for the entire night, and not be able to engage in any night activities.

The Doctor must PM me her choice of "patient"; she is allowed and encouraged to do so in the day phase due to the rules of chronology described later on. Nevertheless, the Doctor will only actually administer the injection at the start of the night phase. She should also PM me a secondary "patient", in case her primary choice is staked that day.

Identity Revelation: Only Revealed at the end of the game.

Special Notes:
The Doctor IS ALLOWED to inject herself.
The Doctor MAY NOT inject the same person on two consecutive days.



5. HUNTER
Species: Supernatural Human
Alignment: Innocents

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8264615/TVD/Characters/__jeremyHunter.jpg

How many in this game? 1

Nature of role: Vigilante

The HUNTER has many nifty devices used for killing Vampires.

During each night phase, the HUNTER may CHOOSE to attempt to kill a suspected Vampire (by PM'ing me during the night phase). The Hunter may not know for sure that someone is a vampire, so he may accidentally kill an Innocent.

Identity Revelation: Revealed at the end of the game.

Special Notes:
Hunter's Curse:
The Hunter cannot be turned into a Vampire; an attempt to do so will cause the Hunter to die. If the Hunter dies at the hands of a Vampire, that Vampire will be afflicted by THE HUNTER'S CURSE. She will become insane and kill herself at the dawn of the second day phase following the Hunter's murder. The insane cursed Vampire can still play normally during the period prior to her suicide. The Hunter's Curse does not apply if a non-Vampire kills him, or if he is staked by the mob.



6. REPORTER
Species: Human
Alignment: Innocents

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8264615/TVD/Characters/__andieReporter.jpg

How many in this game? 1

Nature of role: Tracker/Watcher

Each night, the REPORTER chooses one person to SPY ON & FOLLOW around for the course of the night. At the end of the Night Phase, the reporter is informed of everyone (if anyone) her target visited, as well as everyone who visited her target while the target was at home. The Reporter is NOT informed of what specific actions occurred.

The Reporter must PM me the name of the player she wishes to spy on that night; she is allowed and encouraged to do so in the day phase due to the rules of chronology described below. She should also PM me a secondary target, in case her primary choice is staked that day.

Identity Revelation: Only Revealed at the end of the game.

Abilities & Vulnerabilities: The REPORTER is a more powerful role than one might guess. Technically, the Reporter is *almost* immune from night kills, since she spends the entire night spying on/following her chosen player. So, if she chooses to spy on someone every night, and informs me timeously, she will never be in her room if a potential attacker visits. The exception occurs if she is targeted by the Bourbon Vampire.

If the Reporter's identity is suspected or revealed, the Vampires would be advised to bourbonise her, and turn or kill her. If the Reporter reveals her identity and is believed by the Doctor, she can protect her by injecting her.

Special Notes:
If the Reporter is turned, she becomes a regular Vampire.

QUESTIONS, COMMUNICATION AND RULE INFRACTIONS

1. If you have a question about the rules of the game of a general nature, please post the question on this thread, during the DAY PHASE, and I shall answer as soon as I can.

2. If you have a question relating specifically to the rules pertaining to your secret identity (Vampire, Serial Killer or Special Role) you may ask me via PM.

3. You are allowed to state on this thread, during the day phase that "Abi told me such and such in a PM". You may (honestly or falsely) claim roles, make accusations, and give whatever true or false information you wish to. However, please note:

(i) I will neither confirm nor deny the truth of any such statements; and
(ii) You may NOT cut and paste direct quotes from PM's. Nor are you allowed to fabricate direct quotes and claim they were sent via PM. "PM quoting" is a game-rule infraction*.

4. Vampires may communicate amoung themselves privately, as well as post on the game thread during the day phase. Vampires may NOT privately discuss material info about the game with non-Vampires.

Other players may not privately discuss material info about the game with any other player; they may only post on the game thread during the day phase.

Proven prohibited communication is a game-rule infraction*.

5. Please adhere to the ADDF guidelines. Guideline violations are game-rule infractions*, and will also be subject to forum moderation actions.

6. When players wish to exercise their special roles they must do so by PMing me. Do NOT contact any player directly.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Rule Infractions:

- For a first offense - I shall take appropriate (private) action to penalise the offender and her team.
- For a second offense - The offender will be expelled from the game.

Abi
04-28-14, 06:21 AM
ONE-SHOT IMMUNITY

One-Shot Immunity has been introduced to prevent the game from becoming unreasonably prejudicial against either side due to the death or turning of a high-power player very early in the game.

One-Shot Immunity (hereafter called OSI) will be assigned to:
(i) Bourbon Vampire;
(ii) Sheriff;
(iii) THREE randomly chosen non-Vampires, just to muddle things up. Note "non-Vampires" does not equate to "Innocent humans" - The Serial Killer is also eligible.


OSI will protect a player from the first action that would otherwise be guaranteed to result in them being killed (or turned, if human). If a player survives a night attack due to having OSI, the attacker will receive a message stating:

"Your attack against Player X was unsuccessful due to her having One-Shot Immunity."

The would-be victim will receive the message:

"An attack against you was blocked due to your One-Shot Immunity, which is now no longer active."

If a player with OSI receives the most votes to be staked during Day Phase, the player with the second-most votes will be staked, and it will be revealed on the thread that the player with the most votes had OSI.

One Exception: OSI has no protective effect on a Vampire afflicted by the Hunter's Curse.

Unlike in some of the previous games, OSI will only expire when "used"; there is no "expiration date" for OSI.

04-28-14, 06:25 AM
SOME FINAL GENERAL PRINCIPLES

1. Principle of Minimal Necessary Information

With respect to night actions, I shall only give the minimal necessary information regarding what occurred to the players involved. Particularly, a killed player will only be told their manner of death, not the identity of their killer.

At the beginning of the day phase, I shall only announce deaths on the game thread. The person killed, her manner of death, and species will be revealed. Special roles will be not be revealed in most cases.

If someone was turned, it will be announced since players need to keep a tally of how many Vampires and how many Innocents are in the game. Obviously, the identity of the turned human will not be revealed!


2. Principles of Chronology (Order) of Night Actions

In order to prevent paradoxes arising from night actions, they will be processed in the following order:

(i) a) Bourbon Vampire delivers bourbon.
b) Sheriff investigates someone.
c) Doctor injects someone.
d) Reporter begins spying on someone.

^^^The above 4 actions will be implemented in a (different) random order each day.
***Note: If I am only PM'd about the above actions after the start of the Night Phase, they will be implemented in order of receipt of PM's, just like the actions listed under (ii) below.

(ii) a) Vampires turn or kill someone.
b) Hunter kills someone.
c) Serial Killer kills someone.

^^^The above 3 actions will be implemented in chronological order of the PM's I receive from the concerned players.

(iii) Just before the start of the day phase, the Reporter obtains the results of her investigations.


3. Principles relating the the Narrator (ME!!)

(i) The Narrator is neutral.
This is self-explanatory. I am not biased towards either team.

(ii) The Narrator is sane.
In some games like this, there are insane narrators, who do things like give the investigator ("Cop", "Witch", etc.) false or random information. I shall always either answer direct questions honestly, or say that I am unable to answer that question.

(iii) Clues
Clues will play A MUCH SMALLER role in this game than in previous games, and will be confined mainly to the first few game "days".

About two-thirds of the clues will be valuable, the other one-third will be deliberately misleading. In keeping with the principles of neutrality and sanity, both teams will have roughly equal opportunity to benefit from the clues.

DAY ONE

The setting is a small town in New Jersey, an unofficial suburb of New York City. The time is 1978. Girls and guys are dancing to disco, dressing in Quiana, and making their hair as big as it can possibly be. People are listening to music on the very first Sony Walkman and playing Space Invaders, and Japanese cars are flooding the market. Is John Travolta hotter in “Saturday Night Fever,” or “Grease,” and did your parents even let you see either of those movies?

New York City has been terrorised by Son of Sam killer David Berkowitz – even though he was finally captured and sentenced to jail in June, fear of serial killers runs high in this suburb where so many Dads commute to jobs in the city. Rumours of crazy things happening in the People’s Temple of Guyana have parents on the lookout for signs that their teenagers might have been seduced by a cult.

At the start of the High School football season, bodies suddenly started turning up, drained of blood. Soon rumours of Vampires began surfacing. The rumours caught the attention of a world reknowned paranormal debunker named Abi, who came to town, putting the townsfolk somewhat at ease. But last night, Abi's body was found in his room at the motel on the highway. He had bite marks on his neck, and no blood left in his body. There’s word that he had a notebook that said that two vampires are in town.

You and some friends put your heads together, and decide that the only choice is to put some wooden stakes through those stinking vampire hearts. One every day. Until they’re gone. You might make a mistake, but it’s the only solution, so everyone vows to discuss why they chose the victim before committing that person to death. Killing the wrong person is a risk you’re all willing to take, because without staking those vampires, everyone’s going to die anyway...

The mob decides to stake sighduck ... but try as they might, they cannot find hmi. Frustrated they return to their homes, fearful of things that go bump - and bite - in the night.

Sighduck was saved by his OSI, which has now expired.

The other two players involved in a tie for the second most votes were saved because neither of them was voted against by the Sheriff, whoever that is.

Everyone survives Day 1....

But will they survive NIGHT ONE?

It is now Twilight. You may babble and bicker until 530 PM EST, after which Night Phase will start and the thread will be closed.

Sheriffs, Reporters etc may PM me with their intended "target" at their convenience, either during Twilight or at any time during Night Phase.

Vampires, Hunter, and Serial Killer must PM me thei target after Night Phase officially starts.

DAY TWO

The small group meets in the town square at the crack of dawn, as they had decided previously. The group notices that 2 people, Dopes and Fuzzy, are not in attendance.

Heading over to Dopes' house, which is closer, they find a bizarre sight in store for them. Dopes is splayed out on his bed, paler than the blood stained sheets he lies upon. Two puncture marks in his neck indicate that he was drained of blood - by a Vampire.

The group runs to Fuzzy's home, where an even more macabre sight awaits them. Fuzzy is lying in a pool of her own blood, a wooden :goodpost: sign staked through her chest. Someone has a very sick sense of humour.

Fuzzy and Dopes were both Innocent Humans.Things are not looking good for the good guys.

TygerSan
05-01-14, 07:03 AM
So I'm guessing it wasn't the serial killer who got Fuzzy with a stake. That means that the hunter got a bit overzealous.

Sigh...I hate groping around in the dark without any clue as to who's dangerous. I just want to stay alive. No politics need apply. :(

Also, the evidence at hand indicates Fuzzy might've actually been telling the truth, in which case we've not only lost 2 innocents, but also a powerful ally in the sherrif. Things are looking a bit grim right now.

TygerSan, how can you be so sure that Dopes won't be coming back as a vampire?
Do you know more about vampires than you're telling us?

It's the UNdead that you all should be worried about.

I agree, that stake was a pretty gruesome way to take out a suspected vampire...

TygerSan
05-01-14, 06:58 PM
Dopes was drained dry. Doesn't take a genius to see that. Just cause I'm paranoid doesn't mean I'm anyone special. Just trying to make it out alive like everyone else.

Anything I should know about you, Lunacie?

Baal Moom
05-01-14, 08:48 PM
Well, we could stake Dopes anyway, just in case. If he's really dead, he wouldn't mind it anyway. I may be jacked on morphine and powdered ritalin, but I'm quite sure that Vampire biology has not been thoroughly studied.

Only thing you need to know is that I'm feeling rather paranoid myself.


Well, we could stake Dopes anyway, just in case. If he's really dead, he wouldn't mind it anyway. I may be jacked on morphine and powdered ritalin, but I'm quite sure that Vampire biology has not been thoroughly studied.

Hm, that's not a bad idea. Who's got a stake handy?

And then ... I suppose we should bury them both, Fuzzy and Dopes.

Baal Moom

If he's so dead, we could make it an extra staking, a little something to ease our minds, apart from the drugs and alcohol.

Abi

IF the majority votes to stake Dopes' corpse, there will be no second staking today.

Speaking of voting, it's a-time to get started with that

Baal Moom
05-02-14, 05:22 AM
Yes, even though now I suspect he may be a decoy. I don't seem to have enough information to figure out which possibility is more likely, as I know nothing of vampires, so I'll stick by my first decision. Stake that muf***a.

Whoa, we voted to stake Sighduck didn't we?

Although that's a good point about Baal.

...

And where is eeyore? Anyone seen him today?

...

Where is Daydreamin'?

...

If they don't come and vote, maybe they should get staked?

TygerSan

I could be down with staking Daydreamin if she doesn't show soon.

Sighduck, you're a slippery fella. Anything we should know about you?

The mob decides to stake… SIghduck. Converging on him in the Town Square, they set upon him and dive a sharpened wooden stake through his heart, He screams, and his shirt is almost instantaneously covered in dark red blood.

Sighduck was human. However, on inspection of his home, the townsfolk find posters of Halloween, Friday the 13th, and Scream plastered all over the walls. Sighduck’s house is filled with bloody meat cleavers, machetes, chainsaws, and other vicious items.

Sighduck was the Serial Killer. Good job getting rid of one menace!

It is now Twilight. You may babble and bicker till 515 PM EST.

The vampires and Hunter if still alive can send me their targets thereafter. Other players may send me their targets now.

DAY THREE

The townsfolk awake at the crack of dawn to a piercing scream. It's coming from the Town Square, where Eeyore is burning in agony as the first rays of daylight course over the horizon.

Baal, Luna, and Tyger rush to the scene. Eeyore is writhing insanely, his eyes are bloodshot, face contorted as the flames lick and curl around him. He bares his fangs and hisses. His magical ring, that allows him to walk in daylight, lies thrown at his feet. Eeyore continues to scream and hiss insanely, as he turns into a charred corpse and dies, the flames burning out.

Eeyore was the Vampire that killed Dopes, the Hunter, and went insane with the Hunter's Curse, finally killing himself.

Baal, Luna and Tyger realise that Daydreamin is absent. They rush to her home, where they find her pale frame draped across the bed, blood dripping from the puncture wounds in her neck. Daydreaming was an Innocent human, killed brutally by a Vampire

Three players remain, 2 Innocent Humans and 1 Vampire.

Discuss. Accuse. Claim. Vote.

DAY PHASE 3 ENDS AT 500 PM EST ON MONDAY MAY 5. Someone *WILL* be staked

Reminder to the remaining players: You have less than 12 hours to vote on who should be staked.

TygerSan
05-05-14, 06:19 AM
Looks around and sees that she's one of three still standing.

Well, crap! Now I feel like I'm one in one of those logic problems. There are 3 people. One of whom always tells the truth; one of whom always lies; and a third whose answers are useless. Now decide who to stake :scratch:

Problem is, if I'm reading Abi's rules correctly, at least 2 out of 3 of us still standing have OSI (unless it was negated during the night phase or not all of the roles are filled):

Sighduck had it, but was the Serial killer (human). As far as I know, that's the only OSI that's expired. Hmm...

Anyone left want to make a case for them to be spared? I'm a really boring person (person being the operative word).

Abi

And if I vote for you, Tyger, then Baal could vote for me and we'd have a three-way tie.

I don't remember who gets to break tie votes when the sheriff has already been killed off ...

but I'd rather not take the chance ...

so I vote for Baal too.

Baal Moom
05-05-14, 01:11 PM
Well, you can stake me and have all the bad luck that you want. What sort of strangely paranoidly ineffectual society is this anyway? Everyone should come see the sunrise butt naked, except for all sorts of crosses and garlic chains on your necks, and whoever doesn't come is obviously the vampire. Man, get your crosses out right now and let's eat some garlic.

Well, I'll go out with dignity. I'll make me a date with the stake.

Told you folks! OSI had to be in effect for at least 2/3 of us. So we live to fight another day, but will not be so lucky next time.

So, hypothetically, if there are 2 players left at the beginning of the last day phase, who breaks the tie? Do we have a cagematch to the death?

Just for reference, in the case of a tie for numbers, win goes to the Vampires.

Well, it's Tyger, innit. Or do the vampires get immunity as well? I suppose it's randomly distributed, now that I think about it. Weren't there only three immune people so far in the game? I can't be bothered to check.

Let's stake Lunacie, anyway. We all gone die whatever happens, in the great solar eclipse of 2014, organised by our vampiric overlords.

THe two women advance on Baal with the stake. "No. NO!" Baal pleads. Luna and Tyger plunge the stake into Baal's heart. Blood splatters over their faces. Luna licks her lips .... "MMmmmm tastes like morphine."

Tyger curses as she realises her mistake. Baal was the Doctor. Luna turns to Tyger: "This town is MINE. You are mine, to feed off as I please. Muhahahahahaha"

Winner: Vampire

Luna (Bourbon Vampire)

Losers: Innocents

Tyger (Vanilla Human)

and everyone who died.

Abi
05-07-14, 10:47 AM
JUst FYI, Fuzzy was the Sheriff, as she claimed.

Daydreamin was the reporter.

As I've stated before, Dopes was the Hunter and Baal was the Doctor. Eeyore was a Vanilla Vampire.
