With Trigirl being this lock consensus good read for so many people, I find it really bizarre that she's alive. Just don't lock clear her for tone. There's a threshold where if she's still alive she should probably just be murdalated.

Warning: This game is loosely based on Seasons 1-3 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. There are some spoilers in the following post and during the game.

In 1609, The Master turned a poor, dying young prostitute into a Vampire to save her from an early death. After realizing the extent of her cruelty and thirst for blood, he renamed her Darla, or "dear one". To this day, she is one of the most vicious Vampires to ever have been created. And she's lonely.



The Game
This is a highly thematic conversion game based on The Whirlwind, a family of four Vampires that wreaked havoc and destruction throughout Europe from the mid-1700s to the early 1900s. Everyone will have a base conversion likelihood that will affect whether they are converted or killed when targeted at night by the Vampires. This game has a known roleset and will be full reveal, but some of the characters will have hidden powers that will only be revealed upon their death. The Vampires win by exceeding the number of humans. The Humans win by killing all of the Vampires and the Werewolf (if he craves human flesh).

The Roles
Vampires
Choose someone to attack each night. That person will either be converted or killed, depending on their innate susceptibility to Vampires. Vampires win by outnumbering everyone else. (IMPT: This means they must EXCEED parity with non-Vamps.)

Darla- Darla is the only starting Vampire. She is tough until she successfully converts her first Vampire.


The Whirwind- Always Converted
The other three members of The Whirlwind that need to be converted to round out the full quartet. They begin as normal humans on Team Good. If they are attacked, they will automatically be changed into Vampires. If all three are alive as Vampires together it surely means death to Slayers*.

Liam- Tough to first kill (but will convert even if still tough). When converted, he becomes Angelus. May be able to regain his soul if converted and become Angel*.

Drusilla- Prone to psychic visions that will help her identify members of her team, both before and after conversion*.

William- Pacifist while in his human form. Upon conversion, becomes Spike and gains the Tiebreaking trait in addition to a regular vote.


The Slayers- Always Killed
All of the slayers would die before being converted to a vampire if attacked by Vampires.

Buffy- Tough to first kill. Has a chance of taking a Vampire with her when she dies*.

Kendra- Views for Vampires each night. Brutal when killed.

Faith- Takes over for Kendra upon her death*.


The Scooby Gang- Unknown conversion chances
All of the Scoobies have unknown chances of being converted if attacked by Vampires. Some of them may be told about their conversion likelihood. Others may not.

Giles- Starts the game knowing the identities of each of the Slayers and watches over them*.

Willow- Potions witch*.

Xander- Learns the conversion chances for each night's attack target at Midnight*.

Cordelia- Always on the lookout for members of the Scooby gang*.

Oz- Werewolf that feeds on vampires (until there aren't any more). May learn inner peace and be content with just Vampire flesh*.


Sunnydale Residents- Randomly assigned conversion chances
All of the following are just told that they are a "Sunnydale Resident". Their real identity and any powers are unknown to them (unless certain conditions are triggered). They know their Vampire conversion chances if attacked.

Anya Jenkins- Loves Xander and dies when he is killed.

Harmony Kendall- No special powers.

Hank Summers- No special powers.

Jenny Calendar- Must be dead at the end of the game to win.

Jesse McNally- Will give positive hits to everyone that views for things.

Jonathan Levinson- No special powers.

Joyce Summers- No special powers.

Principle Flutie- No special powers.


*For all of these characters, the exact mechanics of their powers/role will only be known by that person.


Other Information

Dusk: 6:00pm
Midnight: 6:15pm
Dawn: 6:30pm

Night Attacks must be selected by midnight, but the results will not be revealed until Dawn. There will be no talking in thread between Midnight and Dawn.

Standard werewolf rules apply for brutals/voting/etc and pretty much everything else not directly addressed.

With Trigirl being this lock consensus good read for so many people, I find it really bizarre that she's alive. Just don't lock clear her for tone. There's a threshold where if she's still alive she should probably just be murdalated.

It's so good. I've probably seen the (mostly) complete series three times. I skip ~30 episodes when I go back and rewatch it because some of the middle seasons are a little stale.

This game is mostly based on seasons 1-3. I figured it could lead to future games that might round out the series if people like it!

2, 5, 7 in some order are the best.

3 is solid.

1, 4, 6 have some flaws. I still watch them though.

I'm new to the werewolf message board community. I've played a few times in real life in the past though. I'm a huge Buffy fan though so my friend pointed out this game to me. I'm eager and I only hope I don't mess it up somehow!

Thank you! I also know a few people in real life from these message boards who play werewolf (one being my roommate) so I should be okay. I'll field any questions about the mechanics of the boards to them and any questions about the secret in-game stuff to you. That way you're not bogged down with my stupidity, hehe.

LOL! it's ironic, because the answer is opposite from what happens in the song!

I hope you are the terrible liar this implies, because I hate being the only one.

arguably not, though. It definitely did not happen without intervention.

Oh shit Jonathan is a character? Well, alright then, I'm in. Although I question the inclusion of Principal Flutie, instead of vastly superior and dickish Principal Snyder.

(Pst...hey, just a mild suggestion, but...maybe add a few more Residents, so that evil has somewhere to hide in case there's a "Hey, D1 All-Claim, let's do this.")
