where there are good guys and bad guys. people are given roles at random and, for the most part do not know what other people's roles are.
every round the leader nominates some people (a particular number per round) to go on a mission. every player has a public vote as to whether that team should go on a mission and then, if it goes, the people who go have a secret vote to decide if it succeeds or fails. good guys always vote succeed. bad guys can vote succeed or fail in an attempt to disguise themselves.
good guys want to succeed on three missions, bad guys want to sabotage three missions.
couple of other rules i'll explain depending on if it happens
5 other than me, i'll need to coordinate it
although it doesn't seem like anyone wants to play anyway :(
But I wasn't online at the time and am kind of busy now. Sometimes even the losers on here have stuff going on.
that's ok though.. i will try to make it happen some time
ok i'm in
one alternate rule which i don't know if we can do is the following.
one good guy is merlin. he knows who all the bad guys are. also, one of the bad guys is the assasin. his role is that at the end of the game, if the good guys win, the bad guys can steal the win if the assassin can pick out merlin from the good guys. might not work though because merlin could just PM the guys that he knows are good.
It's from that movie Avalon you can't really play it
can I play
i may try again tomorrow
just wanted to make sure my name is down :)
wanted to register my interest
interest so far seems to be
i'll try tomorrow evening at a similar time
use this today to say if you would be interested in playing tonight. i will post a more concise version of the rules at some point and how it will work because it's online.
I can't play, though. Sorry.
Each player will be, randomly and secretly, assigned a role as either a bad guy or a good guy. The good guys are aiming to succeed on 3 out of 5 missions and the bad guys are looking to sabotage 3 out of 5 missions.
The bad guys will be told who all the other bad guys are.
At the start of a turn the leader (which passes to the next player each turn) will nominate a specified number of people to go on a mission (the number will change depending on how many are playing). Every player in the game will then PM me their vote as to whether they think that team should go or not. I will then post the results (including who voted which way). The reason you're PMing me is because, although it's public, all votes should be revealed at the same time.
If the vote passes the team then the people who are on the team will PM me their votes as to whether the mission succeeds or fails. Good guys must vote succeed. Bad guys can vote whichever way they like. Again, i'll reveal the results but NOT who voted which way.
If a nominated team is rejected then leader passes to the next player and they nominate a team. If 5 consecutive teams are rejected then the bad guys win automatically.
Spin and bullshit are highly encouraged in the thread but there should be no PMs traded between players. If the bad guys are able to communicate secretly then they will have too much of an advantage. Don't do it, spirit of the game and all that.
It's really easy.
Also, I'm pretty sure the rules work such that no one finds out they're the dark knight until a sufficient number of rounds into the game?
the number of bad guys depends on how many people play but they all find out who each other are at the start. unless oberon is in play. he never knows. i'm leaving the varients out to try and keep it simple though
I'm thinking of Shadows over Camelot.
(A good game - check it out.)
why would a bad guy ever vote for a mission to succeed?
so, for example, if it's a five player game then the first mission is two people. if one of them is a bad guy and they vote it to fail people are going to be vary wary about putting them on future missions. sometimes voting that first one to succeed will confuse things enough going forward that they'll get onto multiple missions later on when there are more people going on them
but if it seems they're a bad guy, won't the bad guys always vote for them to go on more missions?
there's always less bad guys than good guys so they can't do it on voting power alone. they have to trick their way on to teams
i don't understand the rules mind
are we playing now or tonight or what
can't run it while i'm at work. i don't do much but i may have to be away from my desk
after Masterchef? (i.e. 9PM or later)
give people chance to see this as well
how long does it normally take?
and i've never done it in this format so it's hard to say. maybe between 90 minutes and 2 hours for the sake of faff and waiting on votes etc. bit of a guess though
let's do this
aka, how do i pm fuckyeahdubstep with that big tetris in the way?
sorry, i was looking at something else
need 1 more
Go on then
is it to suck your dick?
can i get a this on here to check everyone is still here and then i will send you your roles by PM
but this game sounds a bit shit.
good luck with it, though, obviously.
you have all received your roles. the 3 good guys are in the dark and the two bad guys know who each other are. here is the first round.
the first leader is japes. he will now nominate two players to go on a mission. once he has done that you will all pm me whether you agree that the two player team he has nominated should go on the mission. feel free to discuss this with him as much as you like in the thread but it's the first round and you won't have much to go on.
when i have five pms i will reveal the results
I post my two picks in this thread?
can be any two, including yourself
as is the way, everyone will claim to be good to be put on missions so everyone will be claiming to be trying to put good guys on the mission.
so the first one is a complete guess then
I was kinda waiting for someone to volunteer
but they'll all be voting on it
1st - 2 man team
2nd - 3 man team
3rd - 2 man team
4th - 3 man team
5th - 3 man team
one single fail vote on the mission (that's on the mission, not to see if the team goes on the mission) is enough to make the mission fail
regardless of your roles
japes and s_a_d
aka the dream team
PM me your votes to tell me whether you agree that this team should go or if you reject it
Good luck guys
verbal votes the team should not go. the other four back the team.
s_a_d and japes, now pm me to tell me whether the mission fails or succeeds.
reminder to all players: if you are good you have to vote succeed, if you are bad you can do what you want.
also, as japes asked in a pm, even when you are nominating the team you still send me your go/no go vote so there are no ties
the first mission has ended in failure. votes were;
succeed - 1
fail - 1
we were supposed to be the dream team :(
leader passes to verbal
verbal, please nominate a team of 3, in this thread, to attempt the second mission
DONT TRUST JAPES
then when the next mission fails, you know you can rule him out for sure
i'm waiting for verbal to nominate
i think he should go for me, one of songs_against_ducking and japes, and one other person.
oh yeah, i saw that thread
now please all pm me your vote for this team (you as well verbal)
s_a_d and verbs.
Whatever, chap. You and verbal fo sho
don't think this will give away any more information
japes - no go
verbal - go
fuckyeahdubstep - no go
icwar - go
s_a_d - go
verbal, icwar and fuckyeah, please PM me your votes as to whether the mission succeeds or fails
japes is bad as fuck
second mission has ended in failure. votes were;
success - 2
fail - 1
I mean daft choice
the leader is fuckyeahdubstep.
fyds, please nominate a 3 man team to go on the next mission. you might want to hear people out and argue a bit as if the bad guys manage to sabotage one more mission they win
this mission requires 2 members. that's TWO.
i can't read.
what do people think
my thinking atm is songs_about_ducking, myself and one of either icouldwinarabbit and verbal - i.e. the three good guys in the game. i think verbal put himself in the last team so he could sabotage it, and did so in a way that would not give us any more information about japes and songs on purpose
this needs to be a 2 man team
i have now (but didn't before i saw this post).
japes is obviously bad. gonna go for myself and songs_about_ducking for this if it's a two man team. to confirm:
See ya later, chump!
3 man team, hard to dig a mole outta that.
My working thesis was that japes was a bad one, just messed up by not including sad in next
maybe icwar, but I think it's verbs. definitely s_a_d though.
pick me and you and we're golden.
I'm quite suspicious
team nomination is fuckyeahdubstep and songs_about_ducking
please all (fyds included) pm me your go/no go vote for this team
japes - no go
verbal - no go
fyds - go
icwar - go
sad - go
fuckyeah and sad, please pm me your votes for the mission to succeed or fail
the third mission has ended in success. votes are
succeed - 2
fail - 0
s_a_d didn't HAVE to vote fail did he?
why wouldn't he?
but he did
bad guys can vote whichever way they want
leadership passes to songs_about_ducking
s_a_d, please notinate a team of 3 people to go on the fourth mission. bad guys currently lead 2-1
probably you all want to talk this over
obviously me, you and icwar
can s_a_d please this this post to confirm that's his nomination?
can all five players please PM me their go/no go vote foe the team of
ICWAR IS A BADDIE
If this goes thru the games over. Icwar bad
is there any reason for someone to be such an obvious baddie (i.e. japes) if they're actually good in this game?
maybe with one of the optional characters but i haven't used all of them yet
I feel like a dumb patsy.
japes - go
verbal - no go
fyds - go
icwar - go
s_a_d - go
can s_a_d, icwar and fuckyeah dubstep please PM me your votes for whether the mission succeeds or fails
the 4th mission has ended in failure. votes as follows
succeed - 2
fail - 1
bad guys win
shot yourself in the dick
THANKS VERBS XXX
Not like the SHEEEEEPPLLLEEEEE
(Yr welcome bbz xx)
What just happened. Literally.
in case you haven't worked in out japes and icwar were the bad guys.
but now, well. Sneeeeeeeeeeeeaky
You were just too willing to accept that I was good off the block because I'm such a kind hearted soul.
which is alright really
good game everyone
this was good
would be good if we could get a full 10 players
merlin and the assassin.
merlin is in place of a standard good guy and his power is that he knows who all the bad guys are from the start of the game. he can try and communicate it to the other good guys but...
the assassin is in place of a standard bad guy. he doesn't have any extra information but, if the good guys win the game, he has a chance to try and pick out merlin (with discussion from all bad guys) if he picks merlin successfully then bad guys steal the win.
so the idea is that merlin can try and communicate but if he's too obvious then the assassin can steal the win away.
obviously i'd have to trust you all a lot not to be PMing each other for these to come in
but sounds good
sweet dreams, verbal.
cat_race makes an excellent dungeon master or whatever
