III. Presentation Guidelines

Actually, the Wolfys are just an evil hoax. This is a WW game that we tricked you into signing up for. The Presenter list is a player list. Rules per normal WW.

Good Roles
Presenter: The vanilla role in this game.

Evil Roles
Producer: Did we give this away by accident?

Agent: Takes 20% cut of everything. Clearly vile evil.

Unknown Role
Wayfarer: Make up your own power. Be as creative as you like.

Lynch time: Whenever Arkibet wakes up

Extra rules:
Please do not wear the same evening gown as another presenter. Huge faux pas.


It is now D1.


(just a placeholder until we come up with real guidelines)

IV. Ideas

Our theme is obviously an awards ceremony. Our previously stated goals are to promote community, produce a fun event, and reward good play. Already, Arkibet and Melsana have provided us with ample data that should be of help for the community.

I. Timeline
It was felt one award/day would drag too long, so we've settled on the above schedule.

II. Red Carpet ceremony. Anyone can drop in. We have one assigned W! True Wolfywood Story reporter, Lauramath. Concepts for this include: anyone can drop in, maybe with a picture of a celebrity in evening wear. Spontaneous fun is the idea.

III. Awards. See above presentation guidelines for actual mechanics of presentation.

We also hope to have "filler." These can be highlights of any moment from WW, funny commercials, funny segments. If you have an idea, you can post it here for feedback, or keep it to yourself/a few others. We like surprises.

Some of these we'd like to be interactive (meaning anyone can post during it). The considerable wit of our community will help produce a spontaneous, fun-filled show. Ideas for this will be useful.

IV. Overproduction.

We don't want an overproduced show. That means that arkibet and I won't be necessarily reviewing all content, etc. Our goal is to produce a framework to harness the creative energies of the community.

V. Etiquette

Be fair and fun in producing your segments and presentations. Make fun of others as you would have others make fun of you.

Okay, you can all post now.

Roles should have been PMd. If you do not have a PM, assume you're a wayfarer.

Vote jmilum

I think you're a producer, and you've collected our IP addresses using survey monkey. Then you'll use cassandra to hack into our systems. You've already sniped arkibet and I.

EEK! False Show!

bagpipedan!


There is another role in this game I forgot to tell you about.

Stalker: This role is obsessed with another player.


Actually, one idea we have is for the "final envelope please" that everyone uses the spoiler quotes around it....

The game of the year is....

Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate To say that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice.

Hmmm...well, I'm going to have to put on my thinking cap to come up with some cool superpowers. But in the meantime, I'll have to

Vote Lauramath

I think her cover as beat reporter is a perfect ruse to hide her bunny-boiling tendencies.

The nominees are being announced!

At present, we don't really have 2x the number of presenters as categories, and we need some of your energies for "segments." Please PM arkibet and I your preferences if you'd like to present a particular category, and if you have a partner in mind.

You are not eligible to present yourself, if you are personally nominated.

Oh what the heck. I want to be a presenter too, if still possible. Although I have no idea what's going on so maybe someone can explain to me?

We have had 4 successful petitions for Wayfarer status. Their powers are unknown as they were made up by the player.

Wayfarers may be good, evil, or neutral.

There is also a new role:
Host (good): Funny and charming, please do not vote these people off as we need them for the show.

Several of you have protested that arkibet and I shouldn't vote because we have perfect knowledge of the roles in the game. While this may seem imbalanced, we disagree and overrule such protests.[/b]

[color=red]
Vote tally:
jmilum: acekim (1)
melissa: Javal (2)
lauramath: beowulf (3), anonymouse512(4)
dalestephenson: anonymouse512(4)

not voting: the rest of you

as it stands, lauramath will be lynched, unless there are vote control or secret vote wayfarers

lynch time has been changed to: after arkibet has had his morning coffee

Oh, and I forgot, our community seems to be particularly good at MUSICAL NUMBERS which are always part of the Oscars.

Let's devote some energies to brainstorming some nice ones.

"Don't know much about lycanthropy...
Don't know much about threnody...
But I do know, that I suspect you...
And I know that if my vote is true...
What a wonderful wolf, you would be..."

Vote for the person who said
"Now vote Murph"
Think about his actions
Wonder why you haven't
Now vote for the person who said
"Now vote Xand"
Think about her talking
Wonder why you haven't before

If you are confused, check with the seer,
Read on cassandra, to help you along
Your feet are going to be off the ground
Your head is there for a noose to go' round

So vote for the person who said
"Now vote Kima"
Think about his actions
Wonder why you haven't
Now vote for the person who said
"Now vote Thren"
Think about her talking
Wonder why you haven't before

Your feet are going to be off the ground
Your head is there for a noose to go' round
If wolfies were trees, the trees would be fallin
Listen to reason
Then vote on a whim

etc. etc. etc.

If a role description disagrees with a Rule, the former takes precedence, right? 'Cause otherwise my role would be pretty lame.

Vote acekim
