Beyond Here Lies Nothin'

This game is inspired by the characters from Bob Dylan songs, but will involve character's from a wide range of songs. Weird & wonderful in-character posting will be encouraged.

How it will work:

This game will use aliases.

Every player will be publicly given a character from a song (and maybe some background). Flavour will be based upon these characters.

Players can request a character upon sign up if they wish. There will be no correlation between characters and roles, but players will be aliased with their character names.

If players do not request a character upon sign up I will give them one.

Flavour will have no correlation to player's roles or interactions. It is possible that flavour may give some clue to any themes / characteristics of the roleset in general, but it is also possible it will not. Flavour will be in blue text.

The mod will not lie. Everything written in red text will be mod confirmed. This includes full role reveal.

The Game:

- This will be a hidden roles game.
- There will be 17 players

Evil

- There will be at least one max evil with a nightkill power.
- All max evils will count for evil parity.
- Max evils may share a chat, but this is not guaranteed.
- There may or may not be aux evils. Aux evils are not guaranteed to count for evil parity
- It may be possible for aux evils to promote to max evils.
- All evils will share the same VC, even if dead, personal victory is not possible.

Team Evil VC: To achieve parity with good (and, if present, neutral)

Neutral

- It is possible for there to be a neutral team, but this is not guaranteed
- Neutral players will not necessarily share the same VC, it is possible for neutral players to win personal victories or to have win-stealing victory conditions. However, it will not be possible for neutral players to prevent any team that acheived their VC from winning
- Neutral players will know of their VC, but it will not be publicly disclosed

Good

- There will be at least one good player with the ability to view for max evils (like a standard seer). This may or may not be combined with other powers
- There may be a "villager" role, any villagers will be called "villager"
- All goods will share the same VC. Personal victories will not be possible

Team Good VC: To eliminate all players counting for evil parity

General Rules:

- There will be NO CONVERSION. All players will keep the VC they start with for the entirety of the game.
- There will be no kingmaking. Any player who has achieved victory that does not preclude other players from also achieving victory will be removed from the game.
- There will be full role & alignment reveal. No powers will be able to affect this.
- Vote manipulation is a possibility, but not guaranteed.
- Powers that alter views are possible but not guaranteed.
- It is possible for good to have a parity defying role (such as hunter), but not guaranteed
- It is possible for there to be power(s) that manipulate evil parity.
- It is possible for there to be power(s) that manipulate lynch

- Role playing is STRONGLY encouraged, voting can make use of player's aliases

- Lynch will be at 5pm. Night orders due by 7pm. Votes will not be counted if timestamped past the deadline.
- Tiebreak will be LHLV
- Player participation is important, not posting for 24 hours or failure to vote will result in being put up for replacement.
- Conditional orders are generally acceptable, conditional votes are not
- This game will not run over the weekend
- No posting between [dusk] and lynch results or between [dawn] and night kill results
- Avoid editing posts and no deletion of posts
- If BGG goes down close to lynch and/or dawn I will postpone the deadline
- Ask any questions to the mod in red tags
- Except in exceptional circumstances orders will not be processed past the deadline
- No cheating
- Have fun!

Roles

A player's role will consist of the following elements:

Alias - This will be a player's public character name (selected from a song). Player's may vote for each other using this name. Players are encouraged to role play this character and possible adapt their avatar for this character. This character will be a flavour element only and will have no effect on a player's role or alignment

Role Name - This will be the name designated to a player's role. Generic BGG WW role names may be used, but it is also possible non-standard role names will be used or any mix of the two. An example role name (but not guaranteed to be in the game) is "villager".

Alignment - This will reflect which team a given player is on and may be "evil", "neutral" or "good"

Powers - These are a player's known powers and may include day or night actions (or both). If evil, a player will be told whether or not they count for evil parity. It is possible for a player to have no powers (villager)

Hidden Traits - These are passive powers that are not known to players. It is possible that all, some or no players will have hidden traits

Despite being inspired by some of the wacky character's in Dylan songs, the characters in this game can come from any song or artist, pick your favourite song character!

Are the roles given to players based on the character or are they just flavor elements?

Roles are randomly assigned.

Characters are for flavour and roleplaying

Are people actually interested in the character's idea or should I just drop it? I'm thinking I could just run this as a hidden roles game without that flavour element ...

Re: Beyond Here Lies Nothin' - A Song Character Themed hidden roles game - In Sign Up 2/17
Also moved this to the 17th October (same date as Seers vs Sorcerors), with the intention of running whichever fills.

(let me know if that'll be a problem Flash or Pooly and I can push it back again)

I just want to say, God, on behalf of all of us thank you for all of the good things we do in your name, like charity and forgiveness. That’s an idea we would never come up with. That’s for sure. You know that better than anybody.

So I think Seers vs Sorcerors is going to run before this does and I don't want the game schedule to cluttered, so I'm gonna push this back for a provisional start on 7th November.

Let me know if this causes any problems for those already signed up.

I'm gonna can this for now. I may be able to bring it back sometime, but it's not hugely popular atm and I'm not sure I'd have time to run it.

For those of you who signed up, thanks and sorry to cancel it
