Brevity 7

This is a redux of Rorab and Lemon's Brevity 6
which was a redux of Rorab and Lemon's Brevity 5
which was a redux of Lemon and Ling's Brevity 4
which was a redux of ohgrande's More Brevity? - D3 - Here We Go!
which was a redux of gdapkus' Brevity 2
which was a redux of Goo's Brevity is the Soul of Wit.


-----------------

This is a Single Serving game with one twist. Each post must include exactly as many words as the number of day of the game. So, on D1/N1, you can only make 1-word posts (e.g. "wolf?"). After dawn on D2, you can make 2-word posts (e.g. "am seer!"). The intention is for communication to be awkward and to see how creative you can get with such confined communication.

POSTING GUIDELINES

(a list that may alter as the game goes)

- You MUST use exactly the number of words available for that day.
- "Um," "well," and the like are acceptable fillers.
- I don't have a punishment for rules violations, I only ask that you work within the spirit of the game.
- Invisible text or other such tricks are forbidden.
- You can quote previous posts for reference, but you cannot string them together to form a sentence.
- You cannot quote from N0, including the opening rules post.
- Any amount of punctuation is okay, however . . .
- Emoticons are forbidden.
- Pictures, links, videos, etc. are forbidden. Text only.
- There are no explicit restrictions on formatting.
- A number counts as a word.
- Thumbing is allowed.
- You may not post multiple times in succession to create larger ideas.
- Your vote does not count as a word and does not need to be given its own post.
- You may only make one vote per post.
- Votes must be for only the player's name as listed in cassandra, or an abbreviation.
- No “text speak,” only actual words—think Oxford Dictionary (not American Heritage)
- Acronyms are forbidden, they represent multiple words. So, this means you cannot use 'FUD'.
- Contractions will be counted as multiple words.

Wolf Chat is similarly governed by a restriction at the mod's discretion.

Mod chats are open to any number of words.

I want you to really activate your imaginations. I want all players to respect the spirit of the game and consider your own sportsmanship when posting. I want you to push the boundaries, but not exploit loopholes.

Ask questions in mod chat if you are unsure about something.

ROLESET

All viewing roles start with a random view on Night 0:

The Seer's random N0 is any player who IS NOT a Wolf.
The Fortune Teller's random N0 is any player who IS NOT an Aux Evil.
The Sorcerer's random N0 view is any player who IS a Villager.

Team Evil

Two Werewolves: Share a chat and control the nightkill together.

One Cultist: Starts the game knowing the names of the Wolves and the Sorcerer.

One Sorcerer: Views a target each night. Learns full role and alignment of that player.

Team Good

One Seer: Views a target each night. Gets positive view on the Werewolves.

One Fortune Teller: Views a target each night. Gets positive view on the Cultist and Sorcerer.

One Martyr: Protects a target each night. If that target is night-killed, the Martyr dies instead.

Six Villagers: No special abilities.

VICTORY CONDITIONS

Good - All good players win if all werewolves are eliminated.

Evil - All evil players win if the wolves achieve parity: if at any time the number of wolves remaining equals the number of non-wolves remaining, evil wins.

THINGS

Our new symbol is a nod to the buckeye tree's past, while also inviting you to see your own nut in that silhouette - or to find your own vote in that "battleground state".

I had a series where you could help craft your posting restriction, and "Brevity WITH emoticons" was by far the most popular!

We are full.

Given the speed with which this filled, I'm going to set this up now and plan for first lynch on Thursday. Proof of life will be required by the end of the day Wednesday.

If anyone is interested in being on a replacement list, please let me know via geekmail.

No posting please.

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.
