This is the first of three increasing difficulty games bases around fallout shelters. Like the Vault in the Fallout Game series, or the broken down city in City of Ember (movie/book).

I suppose I should mention that I am somewhat flexible on the lynch times, so if it would help you sign up, please mention it.

See the following thread for a lot of background info (not necessary to play):
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/441190

I would appreciate feedback on balancing this game, or any comments that anyone has.

The (short) background: The City is a shelter in a post-apocalyptic world. The residents have lived here for over 200 years and have no knowledge of an outside, however the hydroelectric generator is failing and food is running out for the residents. The mayor and his flunkies are hoarding food, oblivious to the pending disaster while the heroes try to solve a mystery of a message from the people who built the shelter.

The first game ignores most of this, and revolves around the mayor and his flunkies (wolves) attempting to usurp the council (villagers).

The Game:

Team Evil:
Mayor: Wolf with double vote. (will be tallied after lynch time)
Looper: Tough Wolf.
Lizzie: Wolf Cub.
Mayor's Guard:Cultist
Each turn the Mayor has 2 extra votes (food stockpile). One of which he uses on himself and another he gives away. He cannot give to the same player twice in a row.

Team Good:
Doon Harrow: Witness
Sul: Bodyguard
Loris Harrow: Mason
Lina Mayfleet: Mason
Clary: Martyr (can die to block Mayor's power for two turns)
6 Other citizens...

Re: City of Ember I - Game/Signup thread.
General notes:
> 4PM Dusk, 6PM deadline for night orders (actual dawn may occur later).
> Game will run weekdays only.
> LHLV tie-breaker, Any votes with a timestamp of 4:01 PM or later will not be counted.
> Random negative N0 views.
> Full reveal on death.
> No conversion, no items, no hidden roles, no hidden powers.
> As in any game where there is a new configuration of roles, game balance is not guaranteed, but I have tried my best to make it so. Please suggest changes before the game begins if you see an imbalance.
> No order results in no action. Exceptions may be made for replacements.
> Participation is important, no posts and/or no voting may get you replaced.
> Let me know if you are going to be unavailable for more than a day.
> Conditional orders are ok. Please use mod chat.
> Conditional votes can be made, if you are away, they will be announced before lynch.
> If cassie or BGG is down, particularly near lynch the game day will be delayed/postponed.
> Use red tags (r-curly bracket) to post a question to get a response from the mod.
> Avoid editing posts. Describe the edit if it is necessary.
> No deletion of posts.
> Posting is not restricted except for the lynch leader who should not reveal any information after the lynch deadline.
> Dead players must use zombie tags and not reveal any information in their posts.
> No Lynch and No Kill orders are acceptable.
> In answering your questions, I will conform to your assumptions, answering does not validate your assumptions. e.g. asking "Can the wolf jmilum do x", may get the response: "Yes". Meaning that x is possible for the wolf, who you are assuming is jmilum.
> If anyone makes a post which is based on a misunderstanding of the rules. I will try to correct this, as failure to understand the rules is a failure of mine to explain them properly. The poster should not be penalized for that.
> This is a game, the goal is to have fun. Personal insults should be avoided.
> Please thumb posts that you find amusing or insightful, this should not necessarily be considered endorsement of that player's position.
> I should not have to state no cheating, which includes but is not limited to:
> > Private messages, small/hidden/white fonts, pre-arranged signals/deals, codes etc.

Re: City of Ember I - Game/Signup thread.
Detailed Rules:

Team Evil:
Mayor Cole (Played by Bill Murray in the Movie): Wolf Leader
Due to control of food stockpile he has ability to double votes of two people each turn. He is unable to resist using one of these on himself. Cannot choose the same person twice on subsequent turns for second share (see below). The person receiving the food cannot refuse (with the exception of Lina - see below).
Knows who Looper is and shares a chat with him. Knows who the Guard is but does not share a chat. May not share Guard info with Looper in chat. Determines who is NK if there is conflict. May NK any player.

Looper: Tough Wolf
Knows who the Mayor is and shares a chat with him. Knows who Lizzie is. Tough (requires two lynches to kill). After loosing toughness, may be given an extra share of food (double strength vote) every turn. If the Mayor dies, Looper will get control of the food stockpile. May not share who Lizzie is with Mayor in chat. May not select a known evil for NK. Looper is the N0 selection for receiving food.

Lizzie: Wolf Cub
Lizzie knows who Looper is. Does not share a chat. Will be promoted to wolf and share a chat if either Looper or Mayor Cole dies. If both die, then Lizzie gets control of the food stockpile. Does not count for evil parity unless promoted.

Mayor's Guard (Played by B.J.Hogg in Movie): Cultist
Knows who Lopper and the Mayor are. Does not have a chat. Never gets control of the food stockpile. On Lizzie's promotion, learns who she is. Does not count for Evil parity. Learns the identity of the second mason when one is killed.

Team Good
Doon Harrow: Witness
May select a person each night for viewing. If that person is the Night Kill, will learn the identity of one of the wolves who ordered their kill. May repeat view on same person in subsequent nights.

Sul (played by Martin Landau in Movie): Bodyguard.
Can protect a player from NK each turn. May not protect the same person two nights in a row, may not protect himself. Does not die if the person guarded is selected.

Loris Harrow (played by Tim Robbins in Movie): Mason
Knows who Lina is and shares a chat with her.

Lina Mayfleet: Mason
Knows who Loris is and shares a chat with him. If either Mason is killed the Guard (Cultist) will learn the identity of the other Mason. (Documents recovered). If Lina is given a share of the food stockpile, she goes to the mayor to report the incident. Lina may refuse the extra vote, and if she does after this point the corrected vote tally will be posted to the thread.

Clary: Martyr
Not a standard Martyr. Knows who Lina is. Once per game (obviously) can sacrifice herself (Killed) and will negate the effects of the food stockpile for that day and the next.

Villagers: Villager
Standard Villager, counts for good parity as does everyone on team good.

Victory Conditions

Evil wins if it achieves parity with Good at eny time. E.g. 2 Wolves and 2 Villagers or 1 Wolf and 1 Villager. Note wolf cub does not count unless they are promoted by the death of one of the other wolves.

Good wins if the Mayor, Looper and Lizzie are killed.

Voting
I was not planning on posting adjusted vote tallies. But I don't know the balance for this. I am thinking that if I post the tallies the Mayor will be too easy to detect... Please post your comments on this.

Post 16 says that dcorrin started it, and that he should really edit his mistaken post.

It also wonders if dcorrin can get an admin to edit the cassie post to reflect the rule of this game.

Re: City of Ember I - Game/Signup thread.
I havent really played a game where there is no seer type power on either side. (except for one where there were no specials, but thats a different kind of thing). so I think this will be interesting. once i get to cassie I will sign up!

and i am not going to follow the numbering rule.

Post 18 is to point out that once Mir signs up, the village will find its first evil.

[vote kaldar] as he is so very wrong. If I was a wolf I would OBVIOUSLY follow the numbering rule so I don't draw attention to myself. This is a villager play, pure and simple. Stop fudding up the entrant posts!

Post 24 to thank Kaldar and to express my sadness at the recent state of affairs leading me to actually welcoming and encouraging that endorsement-- AND to let dcorrin know that I haven't read the background yet, but I am planning to. (Haven't read the book... maybe seen the movie... I'm shaky on movies.)

Re: City of Ember I - Game/Signup thread.
I did not watch the movie, but as you might tell from my avatar I love children's and young adult's literature. So I have read the first three books in the series.
