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 me or Smugs. 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!

Day has 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
Please react to these deadline options (all times are BGG).

If I may interject, the reason I stepped down from the position was because I had posted 6 different games that had different I had ideas that didn't seem to appease anyone. Some of them were from thoughts I had of using some mechanics while others from sites especially this one. But was it got a little upsetting that no one had wanted to play them especially since 1/2 of them I was co-modding with someone who was known by at least a hand full of people here. Regardless, it got really depressing seeing my ideas go the 2nd page and then the 3rd page and so on.

However, if either mod is ok with it and if it's not too late, I'm willing to reconsider. The reason why I changed my mind is that I've been less active in this forum(dued the lack of the games I signed up for not going and because of what I already said and because I've been hanging out on other forums) and the may be one of the only times I could actually mod here.

Yes but if it was a month long, then I would still have at least a week in between the end and being back at college

Fair point, but despite the player list including a Maj, this isn't that type of game

But your game setup instructions don't say that, and in fact warn us not to expect anything.

The last majority vote game here took a bit over two months as I recall, but that was because it used infinite day length. One day I shall make good on my threat to run a majority game to my specifications, which include automatic No Lynch if no consensus is reached by the deadline. Then everyone will cry "Hey, that's actually how we should have been doing it all along!", and with a loud cheer they shall raise me to their shoulders.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Probably to lynch me.

I don't think there's a majority rules game of any sort in signups right now. whistle

Fair point, but I'd try to be more transparent if this was going to be a real-time thing like that. The OP expressed that we're not trying to make a game that misleads you or even that diverges from BGG WW norms in a way that makes it hard for BGG players to play given the assumptions they'd be likely to make about the structure of the game.

To clarify:

There is a possibility of non-traditional mechanics at play, but the voting deadlines and dusk schedule in and of itself is standard (e.g., this game doesn't have instantaneous dusk majority lynch).

Saying "don't expect anything" and then making the game a majority rules game would be an awesome troll.

The Cassandra Automatic Vote Tally System

Your Moderator has enabled the Cassandra Automatic Vote Tally system
for this game. In order for it to function correctly, your votes will
need to be formatted correctly. The following rules will explain what
you will need to do:

Players
1. All votes must be bolded

2. The entire vote statement must be bolded and enclosed in brackets:
[vote jmilum]

3. If your game allows, and you [vote nightfall] your vote will
be locked. Your moderator may have disabled nightfall votes.

4. Vote tallies will be automatically posted to the game thread
regularly if the tally has changed. The Tally and Vote Logs (for each
game day) are also available on the Cassandra game page.

5. If your vote is not counted be sure to check the Vote Log page and
see if it was marked invalid and why.

6. Case does not matter and simple typos will not cause the vote to fail.

7. You may [vote no lynch] if your game allows it.

8. Non voting players will be listed in the tallies. This will only be
correct if the Moderator notes which players have been killed (see below)

9. Editing a vote post will invalidate the vote and it will not be counted.


Moderators
1. The moderator will need to post [Dawn] when the day begins
(after the night results are posted) and [Dusk] when the lynch
deadline has passed and the day is over. Votes will not be counted
after [Dusk] has been posted. They will be registered again
after [Dawn] is next posted.

2. You may include a day number in the dawn and dusk post for
informational purposes, but it will not be used by the system.
Cassandra will increment an internal counter each time it sees
[Dawn] no matter what day is shown in a dawn post (i.e.
[Dawn 3] the three is allowed but ignored)

3. After dusk has been posted, the Moderator may go to the game page
on Cassandra to request a Final Tally to be posted before the normal
scan period has elapsed (i.e. Game Y gets scanned at 45 min. after the
hour, if it lynches at 7pm the moderator may request a tally to be
posted from the game page before 7:45pm. it will also be posted
regardless of whether or not it has been changed since the last
posting) - Do this by clicking on the 'Force Vote Tally' link.

4. You will need to note which players were killed via the lynch or at night by
either posting [killed jmilum] in the thread, or by going to the game
page and editing the player list. When posting in the thread, be sure to post
[dusk] before posting the lynch kill, and post [dawn] before
posting the night kill.
Example:
A. lynch time has passed so post [dusk]
B. goto the game page and select a final tally to be posted
C. check the final tally and post [killed melsana]
D. after the night deadline has passed post [dawn]
E. post the night kill with [killed kima]

Your Moderator has chosen to use the Longest Held Last Vote method for a tiebreaker - This is just for Cassandra system, and there may be a different tiebreaker specified by your Moderator in the ruleset.
Your Moderator has chosen to allow Nightfall votes.
Your Moderator has chosen to allow No Lynch votes.

You awake with a feeling of anticipation in your chest -- divine change is in the air.
You lean your head back as you step into the streets of Mycenae and the sun greets you with familiar warmth.
As you approach the agora, you ceremonially dedicate the day to the gods and to the future.
The outcomes of this forum could give rise to a new era of prosperity!
