Karafruit Villager-Thrower
This is my first attempt at modding a WW game on here, so please be gentle

I'm planning to run some sort of generic game, probably have some wolves and seers and maybe a sorc or hunter or something, depending.

I'll determine a final roleset once I have a rough idea of how many players there will be (feel free to offer suggestions!)

Lynch time will be 21:00 BGG time

To sign up for the game, please post signup in bold. To remove yourself from the game, post remove in bold.

To guess the acronym, post "guess" followed by your guess, in bold.
e.g., guess Platypuses might want corn when blueberries start blooming

To vote to lynch a player, post vote modkiwi in bold; the player's username must be spelled out exactly (still working on that one, with a job starting modkiwi hasn't been my highest priority lately, sadly :/).

Any commands for modkiwi should be the only thing in the bold tag--for example, sneakily vote linguistfromhell and throw a kiwifruit at him won't work, as the entire bold tag is processed as one command.
Alternately, you may surround what you want processed in brackets; this would also allow you to make multiple commands in one bold tag.

For example, sneakily [vote linguistfromhell] and throw a kiwifruit at him would work.

I will leave it up to the wolves how they want to chat amongst themselves, whether via geekmail or QuickTopic or Google Hangouts or whatever.

views and kill orders will go to me for now, but might possibly be handled by modkiwi at some point.

Please be civil, follow all the standard rules, et cetera.

In particular:
- no out-of-game consequences for in-game actions (e.g., saying "I'll give you 5 GG if I turn out to be a wolf")
- no use of the geekroller or polls
- no insulting the moderator unless it's clever enough to make her laugh
- only I am allowed to kick modkiwi
- no cat pictures
- other things that I probably should mention but am not thinking of right now

Also, yay for modkiwi and I can't do a lynch much later than 6pm, so I won't play, but I'm totally in for guessing.

Actually, I can do earlier I think. I was trying to do a worst-case I'm home from work by then, but either I should be home by 20:30, or I'll be on a train and can probably handle lynch from my phone.

So sometime 20:30 or after will work for me.

I'm going to cancel this game until further notice.

My point was to run a game since I suspected games weren't being run, but with two 9ers already being run, that point is moot.

And clearly the lynch time that would work best for me won't work for anyone else, so I'll just wait until there's a drought of games if people want me to mod.

i would keep it up, kiwi. there is a demographic that's interested in this lynch time. just give it some time. it's not the most popular, but the people that want this lynch time are a deprived group. they'll appreciate it.

Eh, I guess I'll keep it up, no reason to take it down.

Just, I'm less interested in making modkiwi automod werewolf than I am, say, Resistance, if there are other people actually putting up WW games.

And I'm also starting to wonder if I bit off more than I can chew

but if there's interest, I'll still plan to run it, I guess.

Yeah, some of us can only play in night games cause we just got home from work, but no one ever runs night games because everyone else are a bunch of loafers who only want to play while at work. So I come see a night game posted and it's already canceled before it even reaches the time it scheduled lynch for. signup

Hey, it is the opposite for some of us - we can't play at work in the evening but the afternoon before is just fine.

Yeah, probably. The third sense is sometimes criticized by commentators and others who prefer the term initialism for abbreviations that are not pronounced like an ordinary word, on the grounds that the distinction is useful.

9 probably works best for me too--it ensures I'll either be home from work, or on the train home where I can process lynch.

So 9 it is unless anyone objects

Does anyone have any particular preferences about how many people to wait for?

I don't have enough WW experience to know what numbers of players make for good games.

Which one of us is the scary one? *looks over shoulder*

You should give it some time, it's only been one day, and it's the weekend now. Androl might still be in too, since you formalized it to 21:00. Is this game listed in the advertising thread? As others have said, there are people for whom the usual early dusk time just don't work and they may not have had a chance to see this yet. Irina comes to mind. She likes late games.

Don't go for anything overly complex. Don't include brutals or cursed. Probably not toughs. A straight game of 1 Seer, 2 Wolves, X Villagers will be a good start - but there's no reason to limit yourself if you are confident.

If you have questions, feel free to holler.

My plan from the start has been seers/wolves/villagers; the question was how many players.

I think I'll shoot for nine?

I guess I could set a deadline and say I'm going to start at X time with however many I have.

Sure, that sounds good. I'll start Wednesday night, and however many we have is however many we have.

I guess I'm not familiar with a game that is quite that vanilla. I thought the hi-game 11 player set was as vanilla as it gets. But I'm definitely interested if there is a more basic set.


We had one that was 2 wolves vs 11 villagers. Wolf 1 buses afk wolf 2 on day 1 and coasts to the win.

Well, when it's an active instead of passive priest, the priest has a night order to learn the identity of one dead person so it's up to them to decide when to reveal. A passive priest doesn't need to reveal anything, the deaths are revealed in thread.

Yeah I remember the passive priest discussion a while back. I haven't played many 9ers, but half the fun is the paranoia of not knowing if a role was just lynched, night killed, etc.. I'm not sure I can really speak to balance issues, but I would have to think using a passive priest in a 9er would be tough for the evil team.
I agree. That would seem to skew the landscape of a niner.

There was also Single Scoop/Serving, which went through a lot of changes as the Serving series went on.

Original Scoop was two wolves, sorcerer, cultist versus five villagers, seer, aux seer, hunter, martyr.

I think by the end of the Serving games the sorcerer and cultist had both been boosted, and the hunter was switched for a villager.

The version I wanted to try was switching the hunter for a passive priest. I think that's still simple enough but it should weaken the all-claim.

That feels a little in favor for evil.

6 goods, 3 evil.
A mislynch on D1 puts the goods at must lynch on D2.

I think 6 villagers, 1 seer, 2 wolves, is the typical balanced set.

I'll brainstorm a good idea. There's got to be some good niners that used to be classic. I think there was one I wanted to play in Alexfrog's wolf of the week thread...

Nevermind. I think I was looking at the top 7p set.

Alexfrog wrote:

Rukasu wrote:

What's your favorite 7-player roleset for a f2f game? 9 player?


7: Werewolf, Sorcerer, Cultist (support evil with no power), Seer, Hunter (wins if Hunter and Werewolf are the last 2), Priest (is informed of the dead's roles), Villager.

alternate 7:

3 teams: Werewolf team, Vampire team, Good team.

Werewolf, Sorcerer (looks for Seer)
Vampire, Cultist (looks for Cleric)
Seer (looks for Wolf), Cleric (looks for Vampire), Hunter (wins if only they and 1 other bad player remain)

It is randomly chosen by the moderator which evil killer (Werewolf, Vampire) will get to kill on night 1.
During the night both Werewolf and Vampire are called upon to kill someone. Only the randomly chosen team's kill works.
On night 2 the other team gets to make the kill, and on night 3 it reverses again.

If one killer is dead, the other gets all remaining kills.

If the last two players are Werewolf and Vampire, they kill each other and no one wins.

(Note, pretty much the only role claim that wont result in the majority of the players wanting to kill you is 'I'm someone who looks for someone) :)


9 Player:
2 Wolves.
1 Sorcerer.
1 Seer.
1 Hunter.
1 Priest.
3 Villager.

One villager is chosen at random to be a Tinker by the moderator (they are not informed). The tinker looks like a Wolf to the Seer.

I wasn't sure if that would be too pro-village, but I had considered suggesting it.

I also just found online a roleset for a 7-player game with three teams--I think something similar has been run on here before.
But since we have 7 players, it would be an option. Since it would be a significant difference from what was originally proposed, I'll only do this if it's unanimously favored.

Definitely open to suggestions as well.

I'd agree with that. Also, the 9p set that's only wolves, seer and villagers, with no priest I would want that to be a reveal game.

I think it was. See, this is why I miss Cassie's main page, and why I tried out that Google sheet but alas, it doesn't look like that caught on. Too bad. It could be useful. BTW, I had this under Date Specific, because Kiwi wanted to start on Oct 8th. Is it starts when full now?

Also, still hoping we get more than nine. soblue I was not expecting this to turn out to be another niner, there were already three in signup when this was listed. I would drop from a niner except that I'd like to play a game that includes irwin and Nessus, so I can only hope we get at least three more people now to get to eleven.

I can play this as a super AFK player, to take up a place and help it run, but I would be gone at least 3 hours before lynch and maybe only active while you guys are away.

AFK for lynch is not so bad when everyone knows ahead that you're limited that way and as long as people post when they are available, which we know you would do.

I might sign up, but it'd have to be an 11+er because I have a friend that will probably be playing too.

I remember that.

It came down to Vamp-Cultist, Seer, Wolf, right? Or something like that? The Vamp-cultist ended up being a Kingmaker.

Prediction, from having played with a similar schedule where I was only posting while no-one else was online, you will be lynched regardless of your alignment before D4.

I'll NK you Smug to spare you the pain of this happening.

I think it looks like most people would prefer 11+ anyway, so that's what I'm going to do
Dave ??arski-Riley
Making it to D3 without being lynched already would be better than usual so sign up.

I'm down for playing sets that aren't Hi 11.

Fair enough. I'm fine with whatever, I like the simple sets since I suck but if you want to make my head explode with a more complicated set I can deal with that.





I'm not worried about that, I just think that set is skewed way towards good.

Yo!
What are your thoughts on waiting for a couple more people and playing this roleset?

No Reveal 15er* III


Important Notes (you should read this):
*15 players will sign up, all roles get N0 actions so Wolves will get 2 Night Kills on N0. If a Player is Night Killed on N0, it will not count against their Win/Loss statistics.
*There is no role/alignment reveal.
*There are two NKs until one wolf has been killed.
*Wolves can NOT choose to "No Kill" or to Kill a Wolf. They can choose to double up on the same target.
*Dusk will be at 6:00pm BGG Time. Any votes made at 6:01pm or later will not count.
*No night posting. It will result in a Mod Kill.
*Dawn will be at 7:00pm BGG Time.

Good Roles (12)

Alliance Seer - Chooses a player on N0, and is not told any immediate information about that player. Each subsequent night, views another player, and will be told whether or not that player is on the same team as the last person they viewed. Must always choose a living person other than themselves.

Bodyguard - Each night, including N0, must choose one player to protect from being killed. That person will not die in the night unless there are multiple kills assigned to that player. Bodyguard can not target themselves, or the same player two nights in a row. Bodyguard won't be informed of a successful protect.

Vigilante - Once per game, including N0, may target any player to kill during the night. Vigilante is not brutal upon death. This ability will still take effect if the vigilante uses their ability on the same night that they get NKed, but will not take effect if the target is being protected by the bodyguard.

9 Villagers - The most awesome of all.

Not all of these roles will be in play on D1!

Evil Roles (3)

3 Werewolves - The werewolves know each other's identity, and can private message/chat without restriction. Each night, including N0, if there are three wolves alive, the wolves choose two players to kill. The werewolves can use both kills on one target. If there are one or two wolves alive, they only get one NK. If a wolf is shot by the vigilante during the night, and there were originally three wolves, wolves still get two NKs for that night. Wolves may not NK themselves or choose to not use NKs.

Victory Conditions

Good - All good players win if all werewolves are eliminated.

Evil - All evil players win if the wolves achieve parity: if at any time the number of wolves remaining equals the number of non-wolves remaining, evil wins.

History on this Set
Good = 1
Evil = 1
No Reveal 13er - Good Wins!!!
No Reveal 15er II - Evil Wins!!!

There would probably be players who wouldn't want to do it. I'd rather run it as a separate game (either royal running it or I can)
Given the difficulty of finding enough players, is there any reason not to just remove two villagers and not give wolves n0 kills? That would reduce the player count and also mean no one would die before they got to play.
Oh bodyguard could affect the n0 kill, hmm
Alabaster
Yeah, the bodyguard.
It also creates meta discussion about the kills.

Better would be to remove two randomly selected good roles instead of two villagers, because having all roles confirmed in the game on D1 gives good an edge, and the uncertainty leads to more interesting games.

Oh I thought it was saying some of the specials wouldn't be assigned until N1 since it said they wouldn't all be in play D1

All the roles get assigned N0 but the village doesn't know which two (or one) goods are out of the game.

The sentence is confusing and I think should instead say that not all players well be alive (which also isn't necessary true if the wolves double-target who the bodyguard protects). But it is not unlikely that all four roles will be present.

I think if I'd been alive during that game, instead of an N0 kill, I would have wanted to commit suicide before the end.
Alabaster
That might have been more to do with the village lynching Silverbonds and them leaving "seer"Jared alive for three more days...

Which was a direct result of 'no reveal'. Like I keep saying, me no like.

This seems like a really interesting set that I have no interest in playing. I play so rarely as it is and there are people signed up for this game that I'm excited to be able to play with again. People being eliminated before the game even starts guarantees disappointment rather than excitement.
Felice AKA Maria
That's another good point Nessie! Yes. It is an interesting set and the fact of not knowing what the roles were that were lost N0 puts an extra twist (of the knife). I played in the first one but it was not quite the same as the second. I joined the second one because it was waiting so long to fill up and I hoped to die right away, and got my wish!

Awkwardly it turns out I was in this game and apparently didn't remember it blush
