We all know who Groot is, and, like all right-minded people, we all admire him and want to be like him. This game is your chance.

---------

Far away, in a distant corner of the milky way galaxy, there lives a race of beings who evolved into sentience from trees. One of them, known as Groot, left the planet and joined the Guardians of the Galaxy and eventually helped save the world from Thanos. Or helped Thanos, depending on what universe you're in. Anyway, this is not his story. This story takes place on Groot's homeworld, where a race of sentient trees goes around talking to each other by repeating that they are Groot.

Post Restriction

Since this game takes place on Groot-world, you are required to speak the language Flora colossi at all times while communicating. This means that, except for votes and quoting other posts, all posts will consist of the words "I am Groot". The words may be repeated any number of times, and they may punctuated, capitalized, colored, or formatted in any manner you see fit, but they must spell out "I am Groot". You may post images, but all images must contain a picture of Groot and may not include any text other than, "I am Groot" (and possibly things like watermarks or whatever). All posts in this game are subject to this restriction.

Roles

This game is for 17 players.

Evil Roles (5):

3 Wolfy Groots: The wolfy Groots share a chat and kill 1 player a night. They may talk normally in their wolfy Groot chat.

1 Cultist Groot: The cultist Groot is told the identities of the three Wolfy Groots at the start of the game.

1 Sorcy Groot: This Groot is informed of the IDs of all three Smarty-Pants Groots on N0.

Good Roles (12):

3 Smarty-Pants Groots: Each Smarty-Pants Groot will be informed of the identity of one of the Wolfy Groots on N0. Each of them will know a different Wolfy Groot.

2 Masonic Groots: The two Masonic Groots will share a chat from N0. They will be able to talk normally in their chat.

1 Priestly Groot: This Groot learns the roles of all players killed at night.

6 Regular Groots: You are Groot.

------

So the strategy of this game, ideally, is this: You've got people with information, but nobody can get it out there because nobody can communicate.

One thing to note here is that nightfall votes will not be allowed, to prevent the smarty-pants Groots from nightfalling their Wolfy Groots on D1. For the same reason, roles are not revealed on nightkill, so as to not make a Wolfy Groot too obvious when a Smarty-Pants Groot is killed. The Priestly Groot will know who's been killed, of course.

There are probably other rules I need here. I'll add them later. And remember: We are Groot.

I usually like syntactic constraints but it turns out even I have my limits.

Also, are the cultist and sorc supposed to be the same thing?

It feels like the cultist Groot is supposed to say it knows the wolfy Groots intead?

They are if I can think of a good restriction for them. Maybe up to one per post or something.

Evil seems incredibly fucked

This looks more like an exercise in logic puzzles and goods not sabotaging the team than a WW game

Yeah I took it down. I like the idea, but I dunno. Maybe it'll come back later.

Go ahead and sign me up if you bring it back. I'm having to be measured about my participation but it seems fun.
