This is a sequel to PBF#39 and PBF#55 - Raven Variant, by ToneMastaG, and Raven Variant with Lady of the Lake by Vanderscamp.

This version was proposed by clublock. These rules are egregiously stolen from Vanderscamp's PBF# 55 opening post.

The basic premise is that spies don't know each other, and private communication is allowed.

This version has some tighter rules regarding communication, as well as including Lady of the Lake.

Standard PBF rules apply, with these additions:


Rules:

d10-1: Private communications between players (or a group of players) is allowed by GM ONLY (no skype, no phone calls, no IRC.) GM and thread ONLY!
d10-2: Using lady of the lake
d10-3: Spies do NOT know each other
d10-4: Private communications between players can NOT be quoted, ever. References to previous communications with players should be RE-WRITTEN in your OWN WORDS. Think of the private communications like a real life conversation - you can summarize what the person said, but you'll never be able to recall word for word how the person said it.
d10-5: No outside links, images, videos or audio files are to be submitted either to the main thread or to private GM between players - this it to prevent communications being moved elsewhere and then DIRECTLY referenced to other players. Images and videos may be allowed in the main thread ONLY if they are hilarious (no codded/hidden messages please)
d10-6: Still no editing or deleting posts!
d10-7: Players may not use any form of cryptography that requires the use of anything outside this thread (ie. computer programs, chemical solvents, electron microscopes, Enigma Machines, or lemon juice). Forms that are acceptable: Codes utilizing the first word of every line, the first letter of every word, Character based emotives ( :0 ), smeagolesque riddles, etc.
d10-8:When a mission is going, spies can change their cards back and forth any number of times, but as soon as I receive a card from the last player, all submitted cards are locked, whether I'm around to notify their "locked" status or not. If you really want to, I guess you can also retract your card...
In the case of changes submitted after all cards are received, you will be notified what your final card was. For those of you who really want to prolong it, you have 24 hours max to submit your card. Because of "timing attacks," I will not disclose when exactly the last card was played, but results will probably be posted pretty soon after.

I'll give it a try, I guess.
Though I generally want to see who else is playing before I commit because the players make a huge difference...

Given this thread is still in sign-up after like a month, I'm happy to say I'll play after #121 is over. Not before. If you manage to get enough people before then, feel free to drop me.

A life, some would argue, is a series of problems. There’s no denying the truth in that – but why get lost in it? Why not rise above the truth… and lead a good life? Shouldn’t we all look at problems as a chance for us to find… solutions?

Roles are out, seating order is in the second post. Pyrodwarf, you are up for M1.1. Everyone, please PM me if you have any questions/concerns.

Just a reminder, we are using Lady of the Lake here. If you do not know the rules for it, after Mission 2 completes, and at the end of each mission thereafter, the player with Lady of the Lake will be able to view one other player's loyalty card privately (after publicly declaring who they will view), and that player will then gain control of Lady of the Lake. If you have possessed Lady of the Lake, you cannot be viewed by a future Lady of the Lake user.

So it begins! I've never played a Ravens-type game before so I'm not sure what the best stragegy is, but hey, strict strategies are no fun anyway. I may be a rebel, I may be a spy. All messages are welcome and will be responded to.

So if we GM someone, we put Whisper and then their name, is that how it works?

That's how it works in 2R1B. Since nothing was mentioned about it in the thread, I'm assuming we don't have to post that we're GMing other players, but I suppose that is for Slathe to give a final ruling on.

You do not need to indicate that you are contacting another player in any way. You can say you are, but of course that is not binding. Bolding it doesn't mean anything.
