Be careful what you view for...
This is not a trick game, nor is it intended to be tricky, but it does have some non-traditional elements.

You stand in the presence of the Boule, the council of 500. This is the highest governing body in Athens, and you are here to assert your right to join it. Is your νόος fit to govern as a councillor?

The Archons take their places and the trial begins...


Roles
Hidden!

Victory Conditions
Good wins with the elimination of all max evils, evil wins when max evils reach parity with non-maxes. Any neutrals will have independent/wins-with-either VCs, and any conversion will be voluntary.

All reveals are true, default reveal is alignment only. Night posting is allowed for the first 45 minutes of night. No dawn snipes!

FAQ

Q: What's the lynch structure?
A: 3pm dusk, 4pm dawn weekdays starting Monday July 22nd.

Q: What even is the theme, and why is it inconsistent?
A: I originally designed the set for a more Classical Greek period, but eventually the theme slipped more towards the Bronze Age and eventually settled in somewhere around 1300BCE, in an alternate version of Argolis, the eastern part of Pelaponnesia. I tried not to deviate too much from the inspiration but some of the flavor may use incorrect names or pertain to historical or cultural elements that never existed or are from later in the timeline. For those trying to solve the set based on history, know that I am blending and bending more than a bit to explain mechanics and spice things up. It's not perfect, but hopefully it's fun, so suspend your disbelief and play some WW! Take it or leave it.

Q: Why aren't you using Linear B for thematic rendering of names and phrases?
A: Although Linear B is way more thematic than ancient Greek for the time period I'm working with, there are still a number of gaps in the alphabet where we don't know what sounds various symbols make or where we aren't certain we have all the characters. Additionally, although unicode support for Linear B script exists, many platforms need special font files to be installed before they can render properly, and I wasn't inclined to handle that on my own computers, much less the player's. It would be possible to render the Linear B text as an image file and embed it in my posts, but I wouldn't be able to use it for flavor in mod chats, thread headings, etc. Finally, the biggest reason I shied away from using Linear B is that google translate doesn't support it, so even if I had a way to render it easily I certainly couldn't even pretend to know what I'm doing.

Generic Disclaimers:

I mostly design and run games that I think will make for interesting experiences.

Reveals, night posting, balance, game length, player elimination, etc. are not guaranteed and should not be assumed.

If this is a hidden role set, buckle up.

Mod errors happen. If you see something odd, ask in mod chat.

Basic rules:

Abide by the SCS Reasonable Persons Principle:
- Everyone will be reasonable.
- Everyone expects everyone else to be reasonable.
- No one is special.
- Do not be offended if someone suggests you are not being reasonable.

If you don’t intend to play, don’t sign up. I don’t do minimum posting requirements but please give the thread a heads up if you expect your level of participation to be outside the typical range. Inactive players will be put up for replacement.

The game will run on weekdays, with lynch daily at 3pm BGG. Dawn will be at 4:00pm BGG. Night posting is allowed until 3:45pm.

Night orders must be in by dawn. Conditional orders are okay as long as I can understand them and they only use information your seat has at the time the order is due.

Unless indicated otherwise, we’ll use standard cassy vote tallying. Cast your vote in bold with brackets.

Late votes won’t count! Timestamps up to X:00:59 are fine, but X:01:00 is late.

Watch the no posting period.

No direct quoting from Cassandra.

No out of game communication, including encryption or non-english languages.

Edits to clarify or correct posts okay, but do not delete posts.

Game chats will not be deleted.

Mod rulings are final.

If you need to get the mod’s attention in thread, please use red.

Play to win.

Breathe deep.

Have fun.

Smug bits and pieces from Smugs herself:

Any game-changing information posted after Dusk will result either in a final warning or a mod kill. This covers virtually everything game related other than a post containing a “[vote player]”.

Balance is attempted but not guaranteed.

The mod learns through discourse. If you think something is wrong with anything in the game, please let me know.

If I don't twitch unsign up before this starts, a warning that I'll be trying to play less in terms of volume of posts for this game and others onwards - just to put it out there before the game so it doesn't get dissected and called defensive in the game

Alright, thanks for your patience, there are a few brief updates.

If anyone is NOT good to play on the schedule outlined below, please GM the mods. Thanks!

Raven1207 has decided not to co-mod. I want to thank him for his involvement in the design of the set and for all his help talking through ideas and balance. This game wouldn't have happened without him, but in retrospect it was inconsiderate and overzealous of me to try to bring him into the modding scene with an original hidden roles game. I hope he can find a more gentle introduction to the mod side of BGG WW some day, and I hope seeing the set play out gives him a lot of new ideas! is co-modding, but understand that this is his first time modding so give him some slack.

Day has also agreed to hop in as co-mod which I'm really grateful for. She's a wonderful co-mod and I think despite my flakiness we're in really good hands for this game.

Based on folks availability, we're looking likely to put the game in go mode Wednesday or Thursday, with D1 dawning some time on the 19th and first lynch the following Monday. We're aiming for a dusk time in the late afternoon BGG range, but please weigh in in the poll below if you have preferences!

Poll: Lynch Time

Based on those pictures, irrespective how how they're labeled, here's how I would interpret it.

YEET: Run away at maximum speed.
+1: I can tolerate this, and I will not make an effort to change it.
Mood: This is a lynch time.
RIP: This would make me sad - but I'd still do it anyway.
uninstall: Fits almost perfectly, but requires a little work and finesse.
