Oh, that would have been perfect! If you're ready to throw in the towel might as well have some fun with it :)

Quote:
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

That's another one that fits the mood nicely. Does anyone know of any others that would be a good fit? I was trying to avoid any authors who were too recent, since this seemed to be set pre-18th century but Emily Dickinson wrote some good stuff about life and death and hope.

Full Moon Madness by Moonspell, a great song. As for poetry/ lyrics I'll have a look

Maybe a bit too recent for the pre 18th century theme...

All Things will Die

Clearly the blue river chimes in its flowing
Under my eye;
Warmly and broadly the south winds are blowing
Over the sky.
One after another the white clouds are fleeting;
Every heart this May morning in joyance is beating
Full merrily;
Yet all things must die.
The stream will cease to flow;
The wind will cease to blow;
The clouds will cease to fleet;
The heart will cease to beat;
For all things must die.
All things must die.
Spring will come never more.
O, vanity!
Death waits at the door.
See! our friends are all forsaking
The wine and the merrymaking.
We are call’d–we must go.
Laid low, very low,
In the dark we must lie.
The merry glees are still;
The voice of the bird
Shall no more be heard,
Nor the wind on the hill.
O, misery!
Hark! death is calling
While I speak to ye,
The jaw is falling,
The red cheek paling,
The strong limbs failing;
Ice with the warm blood mixing;
The eyeballs fixing.
Nine times goes the passing bell:
Ye merry souls, farewell.
The old earth
Had a birth,
As all men know,
Long ago.
And the old earth must die.
So let the warm winds range,
And the blue wave beat the shore;
For even and morn
Ye will never see
Thro’ eternity.
All things were born.
Ye will come never more,
For all things must die.

~Alfred Lord Tennyson

and another...

Fear No More

Fear no more the heat o' the sun;
Nor the furious winter's rages,
Thou thy worldly task hast done,
Home art gone, and ta'en thy wages;
Golden lads and girls all must,
As chimney sweepers come to dust.

Fear no more the frown of the great,
Thou art past the tyrant's stroke:
Care no more to clothe and eat;
To thee the reed is as the oak:
The sceptre, learning, physic, must
All follow this, and come to dust.

Fear no more the lightning-flash,
Nor the all-dread thunder-stone;
Fear not slander, censure rash;
Thou hast finished joy and moan;
All lovers young, all lovers must
Consign to thee, and come to dust.

No exorciser harm thee!
Nor no witchcraft charm thee!
Ghost unlaid forbear thee!
Nothing ill come near thee!
Quiet consummation have;
And renowned be thy grave!

~William Shakespeare

If the game has 15 or more there will be 3 Masons.

Weren't the roles distributed based on a 15-person game? If so, there should be someone who can back up Vorian's story...

The Exchange

I am not sure what the numbers were....


Super Scientist & Inventor

You're breaking my balls here Vorian. Reveal the last Mason and I will change my vote. If you won't reveal them publically than send me a PM.

Same goes to the last Mason. Tell me who you are and I'll spare Vorian.

I want the villagers to win this. Please believe me in saying you can trust me.

It does seem Lorelei is not joining us, which is a shame since she was a wolf. However, there are now less than 15 of you so two wolves is fine. And yes, votes are public for those that are not special roles.

Hint. Hint hint. Hiiiint.


Super Scientist & Inventor

Roles were given out well before that happened. There would still be three Masons in that case.


Gentleman Adventurer

From what I'm seeing on the character tab, there were only 13 of us to begin with. Anybody who didn't post on the first cycle wasn't in.


Totally not a Werewolf

Perhaps Ryuko could chime in? My understanding is that we originally had 15 people sign up, and roles were distributed based on that number. We got lucky with having one less wolf right off the bat, did we lose a mason too? In that case you could answer IC that it was whoever dropped out in the first cycle. Whether you're believed or not...


Super Scientist & Inventor

Since my above post wasn't clear enough I will reiterate.

Roles were handed out before first cycle began. There would have to be three Masons because there were three werewolf roles (1/5 players). therefore 3 Wolves = 3 Masons.

You're digging yourself a deep trench of lies and filling that trench with other lies. I do t want to vote for you if you are innocent but as far as I am concerned the proof is just not there...


Gentleman Adventurer

I'm only counting 14 applicants, and Lorelei dropped out. With less than 15 there would only have been two werewolves, leaving us with just one.

Either way, with your logic, not one but two masons should be calling me out if what I'm saying is a load of crap, so we'll see.


Insufferable Lout

My count agrees with Vorian. Only 14 applicants had created characters and/or backgrounds when Ryuko announced the gameplay and discussion threads open.

However...

There were a total of 16 announced intents or interest if one includes both Nostrus and Eben TheQuiet who made noises on the recruitment thread that would lead one to believe they had some intention to play.

So Ryuko would have to be the one to clarify if the roles and PMs went out on the basis of 14 or 16.


Super Scientist & Inventor

Vorian and Taraz, I see where you're both coming from. I was basing the game off the original 16 applicants and the thought never even occurred to me that there might only be 1 Wolf in the game. This opens up a whole new list of possibilities.


Male Human Super Cruel DM 10

Two wolves left, 1 scryer, 1 baner, 1 Mason

Just to clarify.

The Exchange

1 scryer left?


Male Human Super Cruel DM 10

Yes. 80 Minutes left!

Did I find Wowbagger's Mason's Dagger after digging up his corpse?


Totally not a Werewolf

I'd imagine that's up to you to narrate. By the nature of this free-form game, it's all about storytelling. You can paint a scene to make him seem innocent or guilty and those who agree or disagree can come up with further explanations to back up your interpretation or poke holes in it.


Super Scientist & Inventor

Weather you find it or not it doesn't change the fact that I'm on the villagers side. I am not a Werewolf.

This is essentially true. One of the big rules of these games is No Investigation Will Work. You can have your characters investigate (sometimes it only makes sense) but they can never be 100% sure about anything without someone dying for it. So come up with something... perhaps Simon doesn't get to the grave until after the lynchings, perhaps the dagger wasn't left with the body, perhaps it is, but the dagger wouldn't be so very hard to replicate (put a crossed hammers stamp into something and it's a mason's!). Essentially, you can't be sure. Sorry.

NOOOOOOO!!!!

I almost wish I WAS lynched. The aftermath of this is not going to look good for Whitey.

*Trembles


the Baker

It was great playing with you and I will lurk with pleasure. Certainly it was quite a different experience being a villager rather than a wolf/assassin - nearly as stressful.

Should be very interesting to come:

Wolves - 5
Villagers - 0


Gentleman Adventurer

Well that was certainly interesting. It seems in the end I relied too much on tangible evidence, and it ended up blowing up in my face in the end. Things are most certainly looking interesting at this point.

Veryyyyy interesting.


Let's do some math, what will all of the scrying going around:

Keeping in mind that if Eldon is correct then Whitey must also be correct, and if Eldon is wrong then so is Whitey.
That being said, assuming that Whitey's friend is, in fact, the other scryer we can say that they probability of them being incorrect is 0.25∙0.25=0.0625=6.25% (Not very likely).

If Whitey's friend is just a normal villager (Which seems unlikely, but for the sake of possibility) then the chance of them being incorrect is 6/8 (guessing).
So 0.25∙(3/4)≈0.1875≈19% (Still not very likely).

If Whitey's friend is a wolf (Meaning we don't have a probability for them because they'll just be feeding us lies), then we have to go with Eldon's statistic alone.
0.25=0.25=25% (So slightly more likely that Alessandra is not a wolf, but not by much).

Sorry to throw you under the bus there Professor, but if us villagers are going to win we have to fight dirty. For what it's worth, I've really enjoyed playing with you.

Finally, I'm not the only one...


Totally not a Werewolf

A <25% possibility isn't much, but it does happen. I used to play a lot of Darksun where attributes were rolled on 5d4 and you'd still see attributes come up 19 or 20 from time to time (<1% chance). If we're discussing it OOC there's not much I can do to refute the accusations... the numbers are what they are.

IC, expect the professor to have quite a bit to say this weekend ;)

Figured I'd share an article about wolfsbane I happened across... nasty stuff. The wikipedia article is interesting too.

Wow, how many things did they test to find out that a little blue flower could kill a whale?

The Exchange

updated profile and information.


Totally not a Werewolf

I was reading up on the history of this sort of game and came across a variant called Quantum Werewolf. Now I really want to play that variant...


Totally not a Werewolf

Things are looking grim for the professor. Here are some links I've been looking at for werewolf lore, if anyone cares to go rummaging through the library once I'm gone...

http://www.werewolfpage.com/myths/case_histories.html (note the 'global legends' and 'folklore' links on the left too)
http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Werewolf
http://forum.werewolfcafe.com/viewforum.php?id=12

The Exchange

Not sure about the Quantum werewolf...

Some variants that could be interesting are some different roles.

• The Hunter: Whether killed by werewolves during the night or by the villagers during the day, the Hunter gets off one last shot and kills another villager as he dies. Hopefully it will be a werewolf.

• The Witch: In one game, the Witch has two potions and uses them during the night. One is poison, used by the Witch to kill someone the Witch suspects to be a werewolf. (But sometimes an innocent villager is poisoned.) The other potion will restore a nightly werewolf victim to life. Some Witches save the restoration potion for themselves if they're attacked. (The restoration potion will not restore the Witch to life if killed by the angry mob of villagers during the day.)

• The Elder: The elder has an uncommon resistance; the werewolves have to attack him twice, on two separate nights, to kill him. The moderator will keep track of the attacks on the Elder and tap the Elder to notify the Elder of the first attack. After a second attack, the Elder will die at the break of day, as usual. Note, the Elder will continue to die after one village vote, the Witch's poison or the Hunter's shot. If the Elder is cured by the Witch's healing potion, the Elder recovers only one life.

• The Cobbler: The Cobbler has been unhinged by the smells of leather dye and other people's stinky shoes. He hates his life and job so much he wants to die. He does whatever he can to have the werewolves or villagers kill him.


Insufferable Lout

LOL!!

The Cobbler was in this game if not in role then in avatar and might as well have hung a noose round his neck given how quick everyone was to condemn him to death.

XP


Super Scientist & Inventor

Wow Alessandra. That's exactally what I wanted to hear, I just never expected to hear it....

5 of 10 votes against me... I figured it was time to have some fun with it :)

Brave, bold and great speech. You have been outstanding, with some brilliant writing.


FOR SCIENCE!

T'was a good show.

Hopefully tonight goes according to plan. *maniacal laughter*

I'm sorry, the professor's last words and his subsequent fate had me rolling with laughter, I don't know why. I guess I just picture these things happening in my head in really stupid ways.
