Finally, after such a long string of bad decisions something I do is finally right.

Professor, I loved your character this game. You win both the creative and interesting awards this game.

Doctor, The Banner would have been a valuable asset to the remaining villagers. Your death hurts the most among those with special roles.

Worst part about it? Up until 5 minutes before voting closed he was protecting himself and would have survived the night. I almost yelled when I got his message.


Oh wow. Now that's intense.

Yeah, sorry about that....


Totally not a Werewolf

I'm glad you guys had as much fun playing with her as I did writing her :)

In the last forum I played werewolf games on, PMs weren't allowed and all interaction had to be IC. It's interesting to see how the secret communications can change things. I think the villagers have a good chance in this one, 2 wolves to 14 villagers is quite the challenge. This was my first time playing a wolf, and trying to second-guess the baner definitely kept things interesting.

I wish I'd had a chance to respond to Simon and Thoen in-character, but I really had to get some sleep. I guess I'll just settle into lurking with the rest of the ghosts and see how this plays out...

Qadira

Yes very intense...

We still have a bit to go and no telling how it is going to end.

full update on my character!


Super Scientist & Inventor

F%+% YEAH!! VILLAGERS FTW!


the Baker

Wow, that was a wild ride. Well done everyone! Brilliant writing and fun story.

Many thanks to everyone for the great game! My first diceless game and I'm a fan already.


Busted lol! Good game all.


Super Scientist & Inventor

I have to say that the behind the scenes game was considerably more fun than the actual game. I sent over 150 PM's since round 2 when things really started picking up. Many of which were apology messages for those I had lynched by accident. I was the last Scrye BTW, not Simon.


the Baker

Yes, that was really impressive Whitey. Although there were alot of close calls and it could have easily gone to the wolves.

I would like to take this opportunity to apologize for my newbieness and Nakedness requests, it wasn't until around post 325 that I found out no investigative techniques were allowed and in that moment I realized all my earlier posts about being naked to expose bite marks must have appeared strange to everyone else. As Homer would say, DOH!


Super Scientist & Inventor

I agree completely. I'm surprised to have actually seen the end of the game. I thought I'd be eaten by wolves for sure (or lynched) with some of the dialog I was getting away with.


Yeah a good close game for sure. I'm already looking forward to and hoping that Ryuko will be running another similar game very soon.


the Baker

I know, what you mean Whitey. Sometimes it's so hard not to write something incrminating. Of course a brewer was a great role to pick, a bit better than Tristens lawyer ;)

Such a great game last monday the vote was at 1:15 my time, I was tired at work the next day. But it was worth it.

You never hinted at another game after this one Ryuko. Can we look forward to another?


Totally not a Werewolf

@Simon: No worries about the nudity. I figured you were just having some fun in-character. There's no reason you can't conduct all sorts of investigations in games like this... they'll never lead to anything conclusive but they make great excuses for accusing someone. For instance, if you'd wanted to accuse Alessandra after seeing her you could "remember" that she had cut her arm deeply a few years ago and taken the absence of a scar to mean that she must have the regenerative powers of a werewolf. I wasn't sure about you being the scryer, but I figured I should make my opinion known IC before my death so the other wolf could use the information as he saw fit.

I was fairly sure that the other wolf was Bruce or the Duke... I was going to target Bruce in the first round because he was so quiet but I switched to Wowbagger after he outed himself as having a non-villager role. I'm surprised this game lasted as long as it did; I fully expected to by lynched on the second round, but I kept slipping by. This was my first time playing a wolf in one of these games and it definitely kept me on my toes!

It would have been great if you'd taken the professor up on her offer though ;)


Male Human Super Cruel DM 10

Of course!!

As for the next game, what would everyone prefer? Traditional Mafia? Jedi vs. Sith? Something completely different? I had a few thoughts I'll post later tonight


the Baker

Interesting, Jedi Vs Sith, I would have never have thought of that (which is why you are a great gm). A futuristic game could be fun, and a change of pace.

Then again a traditional Mafia game would be interesting too. Although would probably be a change of style from the nice village of nice people.


Gentleman Adventurer

Frankly, I'm up for anything. This game was a refreshing change of pace compared to more crunchy roleplaying experiences, and I'd love to participate in more.


Although I was killed quickly I loved lurking.

Whitey did a great job, I enjoyed him talking his way out of the erroneous decision to lynch Vorian.

Alessandra did an amazing job talking her way out of a lynching AFTER being revealed by a single scrying AFTER killing the scryer. That was awesome!!!!

The 75% accuracy on the scryer is genius--just enough doubt to make it interesting.

Finally, the courage of the scryers was key. They paid for it with a few claw marks :-)


Super Scientist & Inventor

That reminds me.

Ryuko, what is your method for determining the % accuracy for a scrye attempt? Those 2 false visions in a row really threw a wrench into the machinery.


Jedi/Sith immediately catches my nerd ear.

I was gonna ask Ryuko, in a more broad term how you came up with the overall concept for this type of game. This was really fun and it adds a lot more energy than sitting around waiting for your turn to roll the dice. Very cool.


the Baker

I think it was essential that the 75% failed Whitey's first couple of scry's, else it would have been over alot quicker. It probably needed 3 wolves for the number of players although it was really close due to the uncertainty.

Werewolf, should be available in your FLGS.

I just roll a D4, poor Whitey and Eldon actually got really unlucky a couple of times (Whitey got 2 wrong and I think Eldon got 2 as well).

As for this... swiped it. Wholeheartedly. I've played Werewolf on occasion on the Giant In The Playground (The guys who write Order of The Stick) forums for a long time and a friend created the Aristocrat variant. I simply jacked it from there, I'm not quote so clever lol.


I like the idea of jedi/sith, but am up for anything else as well.


Super Scientist & Inventor

What about a werewolf based game like that episode of Lost where the Others infiltrate the crash survivors and start taking them away. I think that happened right at the beginning of Season 3.


Ice Cream Man

I only had the one vision attempt, and it was Alessandra. The next one I kinda died before I got it.

And yea, it was fun. I think I made some mistakes for my first time in this type of game, but i'd play in another.


Very cool. I'll have to check out the base game cause I could play that with some of my less than hardcore family members.


Totally not a Werewolf

Any variant is fine with me. It might be difficult to recycle Alessandra into a Jedi/Sith game, but I'll figure something out...

Qadira

Hey no worries, I was going to change my vote away from Tristen, since had he been a wolf, I expected to be killed.

I have no idea what you call that strategy.
Being certain without being anything other than a villager! ;)


the Baker

Just wondering when the new recruitment thread is going to appear...?

:}


Male Human Super Cruel DM 10

So I'm off work all weekend cuz my appendix may explode (In which case I can no longer garantee games). So I'll be starting the new recruitment later today.


the Baker

Wow, hope that can be resolved easily & painlessly (& cheaply). I had that happen to me when I was 8. Wishing you feel better soon.


Male Human Super Cruel DM 10

Well it may be that, or it may be a GI tract infection, which is painful but relatively harmless. We'll see after the weekend.


Ice Cream Man

Ouch! Hope you get better soon, Ryuko.

Qadira

2 people marked this as a favorite.

I much like your appendix am bursting with excitement to have another go at this!


Having a history of GI problems, and formerly having an ulcer, I can compeletely sympathize. Hope you feel better soon.


Male Human Super Cruel DM 10

Recruitment for far-future game is up!

A shame I couldn't do Jedi/Sith, but I could not in any way justify the Jedi lynching off their peers in a witch-hunt. Though now my brain just realized that maybe I could do the opposite.... damnit. Maybe next time.


the Baker

Great, will come up with an idea soon. Pity I have a couple of Star Wars alias, but this one sounds great.

My friend told me about another interesting role that he used in his French Werewolf games: The Lovers: Two players know each others roles, and if one is killed the other suicides. They win if they survive, they can have other roles as well as this. Thus a Werewolf can be in love with a scryer!
