It's a grand old day in redhawkevile, USA. You've heard of the place prehaps?

....

No? Well it's a fine place. They've suffered some trouble lately. Werewolves, cults, and other monstosities have come to town.

In redhawkevile, everyone likes guns. Everyone has a gun. Everyone shoots guns. They like guns so much they've given up voting and elected to use the old fashoned king system instead.

....

Okay, I'm getting ahead of myself. For those not aware, I ran a series of games called gunsman (tm) a while back...

http://www.thecassandraproject.org/jeremy/werewolf/game/1672...
http://www.thecassandraproject.org/jeremy/werewolf/game/1683...

Royal modded one too, under the name Gunmen 2.1*
http://www.thecassandraproject.org/jeremy/werewolf/game/1685...

*Some people remarked that his spelling was better then mine. I most adamantly disagree, but I digress...

The games used a "shoot 'em up" mechanic instead of votes. It didn't work as well as I hoped, and the games sort of flopped.

But I didn't give up on the mechanic, and so here we are today...

Rules

There is no offical lynch time.
There's no tiebreaker.

In fact, there's no votes at all. Everybody has just their brains, and good ol' fashioned shotgun from walmart.

Unlike the previous incarnations of the game, there are no bullets here, just some restrictions on shooting. You just kill by posting it in the thread.

Example:

example wrote:
Shoot: redhawke


Please bold your kills. If a kill is not bolded it will not be counted, and you will look stupid.

For each time you have daykilled before, you must wait 2 hours after day dawns before you can kill again. So if you have killed three times, you may not kill during the first 6 hours of the thread being open, etc. Each person may kill only once per day.

If you don't have a daykilling ability, please don't fake it, or I might modkill you for real.

You may not shoot dead people, or the moderator.

But wait, there’s more!

The village isn't limited to just killing one person per day. They may kill as many as they want. Of course, the coroner doesn’t come by until the end of the day and first thing in the morning, so you won’t know who you’ve killed until dusk. So although each person may kill only once per day, the party as a whole may kill as many as you want.

Roles:

14 Daykilling Villagers: They have the ability to kill people with their guns during the day. Each one also has the potential to become the kingmaker is his apprentice.

1 Alpha wolf: Knows and can chat with the other wolves. He may shoot during the day too. He may be appointed king by the kingmaker, but he will never get a change to become the kingmaker.

3 Werewolves: Know and can chat with each other and the alpha wolf, and may kill 1 player each night. When the alpha wolf dies, one of them (at random) will pick up his gun and gain his shooting ability. Until this happens, they may not shoot during the day. They may be appointed king by the kingmaker, but they will never get a change to become the kingmaker.

1 Kingmaker: Each night, the kingmaker will submit to the mod two names, a primary and a secondary. Neither of these may be his own name, nor may he name the same player twice in a row unless there are 7 or less players left. One of these will be king in the morning. The secondary will become king only if the primary target is killed. He may never shoot during the day.

1 Apprentice kingmaker: When the kingmaker dies, this guy will be promoted to kingmaker and a random villager made the backup. If he is killed, a random villager will be promoted to take his place. He may never shoot during the day.

The King:

Each day, there will be a king.

A king has a couple of powers. First, he may not be shot. Second, he is not subject to kill restrictions except for the once per day limit. Thus, he may shoot even if his role doesn’t normally allow him to, and isn’t subject to the two hour wait for each time he’s killed before.

The king also has the power, once per day, to [vote lights out] in the thread. This ends the day, and the mod will announce the roles of the dead.

There must be at least one death per day. If no one’s been killed by 24 hours of day, the king will be executed for his incompetence.

Victory conditions:

The game ends when:

-The game goes to night and all wolves are dead.
-The wolves are at parity or better, in which case all non-wolves instantly die and the game goes to night.

The winners are whoever is left alive at the end. You may also take a small amount of satisfaction from your side winning, even if you are dead, but that is not your primary objective.

Other stuff:

No posting after you're dead. If you've been daykilled, and I haven't had a chance to kill you in cassy yet, you're dead. Shut up.

Inactivity will get you replaced, possibly without warning. If you are going to be away for a while please say so in thread.

No talking about the game outside of the thread, except as your roles allow.

Don't publicly quote any PM's from me.

I have this down as starting January 2st. As we get closer to the start date I'll edit this and clarify things, but for now you get the idea.

If you have any way of breaking this ruleset, speak now or I'll yell at you during the game.

Every single person must (usually) lock their night actions for night to end.

Re: Gunsmen has returned.
Uh oh, its back!

I'm assuming there will still be a night period after each player is shot? Or do the wolves only kill once a day after dusk?

The main problem with the previous games seemed to stem from the former, with unpredictable night periods.

The wolves only kill after dusk, which comes when the king [vote lights out]

So instead of having to persuade everyone I'm right I can just shoot them. Sounds like good fun.




Fine some self restraint may be in order.

Then I tried to shoot Grim because he sounded too helpful and I hit the martyr instead.

In retrospect, I definitely should've shot Herbie.
