Witch Trial

This is a Werewolf game which I believe will be quite different from any WW game ever played so far.

It is for 9 players. It is therefore a short game.

The game begins once 9 players have signed up.


Game rules


The role list is not revealed. You do not know what roles are in the game. The village suspects that there is an evil witch around, plotting the destruction of the village, ruining their crops, killing their animals, and so forth.

The village council has been called together to find the witch, or witches, and hang her, or them.

Role reveal

Roles will be revealed on death. But not necessarily all the things about a player will be explained by their role reveal.

Victory Conditions

Each player will be told their victory conditions, when they recieve their role.

Making Claims

All players may, and are encouraged to, make any and all claims that they wish. Because thats what makes werewolf fun. If you want to have a full role reveal, go ahead. But each player will need to weigh what is in his or her best interest.

There is only one thing you may not do. You may not directly quote my initial role PM to you. Because that would make role claims harder. Thats the onyl thing you cant do. (You can summarize it, of course)

Voting

Players vote for lynch, as normal. Lynch time is 7PM BGG time.
Tiebreaker is longest held vote. If there is ever a tie with the group split between two people and all people voting, there is no lynch that day. But that does not mean that such a situation can or can not happen.

Conditional Votes

Each player may have a conditional vote. (Only one at a time).
You must post a conditional vote to the thread to make it valid.

End the witch trials

Players may cast their vote to end the witch trials. If more than 50% of remaining players vote to end the witch trials, then the game ends.

PMs

Any player may PM any other player any number of times.
CC me on all PMs.

Any player may quote any PM into the thread. This includes PMs from me. As a result, I probably wont be answering rules questions via PM.

Feel free to make up whatever fake PM quotes you want.

Balance

I cannot guarantee balance. I am doing something in this game that I have never seen done before. However, this is not a trick game. (nothing like ElfTown or Panty Raid or anything like that)


Signup!

If we have gotten 9 players before monday, then it will start monday.

This sounds like a lot of fun, and I'd love to play.

But starting on Monday doesn't work for me. I'm already in a bunch of games. If you could at least start this later in the week, or possibly even the end of next week I can play.

Is this something that once the roles are known, the game is not playable? Because I would really like to play but next week is pretty booked already, with Dune AND Showbiz.

Looks interesting....I'll join.

At least now, we *know* the mod is going to mess with our heads....

(No, I won't let it go. I'm going to poke you the rest of your WW life for it. )

I'll give it a shot. However, my computer access at work has been severely limited since we changed buildings, so I might not be on until the afternoon. I'll have to see how well this will work for future games...

I have added the players who have expressed unconditional ability to play in the game.

If you have said you could play with conditions, and feel that you really can play (and be active), say that and youre in.

Oh yeah, some rules questions.

Are PMs allowed by default?
Can we quote PMs from other players?
Can we quote PMs from you?
Can we use conditional votes?

Re: Witch Trial! Signups! An innovative werewolf game for 9
I have decided to make one change to what I posted. You cannot quote your initial role PM from me. That would make role claims too difficult, which I dont want. You can of course summarize your powers, victory conditions, etc and say your role name.

That is the only thing which you may not do. You can do anything else.

(ok, no hacking peoples accounts or stuff. Anything within reason
