The Twilight Zone
Episode 1
You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension: a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into... the Twilight Zone.

I am going to start up a new line of games... I warn you in advance that these games will be more about the game then most... They will also be strange.

How strange you ask? Ever heard of a game where there are no wolves and the NK is decided by the mod randomly? That's a Twilight Zone game. The game with 14 brutal seers and 1 tough wolf? That's a Twilight Zone game. Strange? Crazy? Unusual? that's a Twilight Zone game. The standard 15 player rule set with hidden role list labeled as a Twilight Zone game to get everyone paranoid for no reason? That's a Twilight Zone game.

Twilight Zone games will usually be about 15 players and will probably be hidden role list (so the crazy can happen!). Everyone might be special... or most of you could be normal... you never know with a Twilight Zone game... Unless otherwise noted Twilight Zone games will use standard WW flavor.

I would promise not to run two Twilight Zone games that are the same... but then I would have to do it just because it is the Twilight Zone...

That said, this will be The Twilight Zone Episode 1 (games will be re-named after complete so as not to spoil anything about the game before it starts) sign up if you dare...

Game will not run over the weekend, Game will start on Monday October 26th, Lynch will be 4:00 BGG, Dawn will be 5:00 BGG.

Up there, up there in the vastness of space, in the void that is sky, up there is an enemy known as isolation. It sits there in the stars waiting, waiting with the patience of eons, forever waiting... in the Twilight Zone.

Re: The Twilight Zone - Episode 1 - Signups 0/15
Because I have gotten some Geekmail about it...

There are two standard 'strange' games...
No Wolves - Mod chooses Night kill and in the end everyone just wasted their time (and everyone wins).
All Wolves - give them a few hours to try to figure out who to NK, then realize that everyone is in the wolf chat... laugh... move on.

I don't plan to actually ever run either of these... they are not actually games. They have one team, and while its funny in F2F to see the reactions... its not as funny in BGG when it takes days to set up the joke.

Rest assured every Twilight Zone game will actually be a game... it will have 2 teams (or possibly more, but the few ideas I have right now are all 2 team games, Good VS Evil) and I will make every effort to balance those teams... it will probably not conform to conventional balance (1/3 evil, the rest good) but I will intend the games to be played, and for the play to matter.

I am not here to waste your time, I just want to try something a little different, and hopefully fun.

I will give you an example because I think it will be as much fun if people know as if they don't...

Twilight Zone Episode 2 will be "Into the Wolves' Den", Werewolves will not have a chat, and most players will be werewolves... the Seer will view for the Wolf Mother (who is a Sorcerer who views for Villagers) instead of for Werewolves... and the two Villagers will share a chat and have a Night Kill... Basically a normal game but with all the labels reversed because I think the thread will be funny to read (what with everyone claiming to be evil...).

I promise you actual games, and I promise that I will do what I can to make sure all participants have fun. I am not looking to play a joke on you (though I do plan to make sure things are not what you expect them to be).

Oh, a few more quick examples... Disp is running an "Everyone is Tough and Brutal" game and recently ran an "Everyone is Tough" game... I would run both under the Twilight Zone tag (and probably tell you at the start that everyone was Tough and/or Brutal). Some Twilight Zone games will have known role lists like that... They are just intended to be a little different then normal games.

I hope this clears things up for people who were wondering but didn't bother sending a Geekmail.

Quoted for reference later when the mod refuses to give a role list for Game 2.

Re: The Twilight Zone - Episode 1 - Signups 6/15
Oh yes... Many of my Twilight Zone ideas have one role or a small group of roles that have something odd about them, and it is that role or small group of roles that make the game a Twilight Zone game... I would like to request volunteers for that role or those roles... This request will be a standard part of Twilight Zone games, even those (like Episode 2) that don't have that type of role.

Those wishing to volunteer for the unusual (and often hazardous) roles in a Twilight Zone game should send me a Geek Mail. DO NOT volunteer in the thread as then everyone knows who did and who did not volunteer... and that will often be bad for the volunteer(s) that are selected.

Re: The Twilight Zone - Episode 1 - Signups 9/15
9 Players is enough for the game to work, I would prefer a few more, but 9 will work.

So this game will start once CLUE 4.0 finishes (I don't want to be modding two games at once.)

Game will continue accepting new players until then (or we get 15).

I'm hoping we pick up some table scraps after Clue ends. Let's fill this bomb shelter up.
