This is a HoN remix of the "Werewolf" or "Mafia" Game, if anyone has played it. It's a thread-based game involving 12-24 people. It's pretty simple but please do read the rules and everything if you intend to participate. Hopefully we'll be able to get enough people to get a game going.
-New Legion hero, Witch Slayer
-New Legion hero, Legionnaire
-New Hellborne hero, Succubus
-Added rule on hellborne confessional betrayal
-Added green rule on voting
-Added additional succubus rules
-Added yet another succubus rule
-Added additional witch slayer rule
-Few other small changes here and there in the thread
The citizens of a small Legion village one morning wake up to discover that there are Hellborne in their town! If something is not done, the entire village population will be infested and killed!Teams
There are two teams, Legion (saplings) and Hellborne (imps). On the Hellborne side there are imps and Hellborne heroes (see below). They all know each other, and may communicate with each other at night. On the Legion side you have the saplings and Legion heroes. The Hellborne win by eliminating enough people so that they make up half of the players in the game. The Legion win by eliminating all the Hellborne players.Turn Structure
The game alternates between two phases, a Day phase and a Night phase.Roles
Day Phase - During the day, the village gets together to discuss and decide who might be a Hellborne! Everyone votes who they think is an imp (votes may be changed at any time during the day). If someone gets a majority of the votes, they are lynched, and the Night phase begins.
Night Phase - During the night phase, the imps (AKA Hellborne) decide who they are going to eat! They are allowed to communicate privately outside the main thread to make this decision. Also, anyone with a special role get additional actions during the night as well.
Roles are randomly assigned by me (SpasticMouse) via a random number generator, once enough players have signed up and the game is ready to begin.
Legion (AKA Villagers/Saps)
Victory: All Hellborne players are eliminated.
Defeat: Hellborne team takes up half or more of remaining live players.
The Sapling - Anyone who is a regular villager is trying to lynch the imps during the day, and has no action at night. Lynches are determined by Votes. A voting post can be as simple as "I vote ______," and must be in the color green. This is to make the thread easier to read for me, as there are a lot more players this round. All players must vote. They win if all the imps are dead.
The Scout - During the day the Scout talks and votes just like the saplings. At night, Scout is allowed to Track any one townsperson by PMing me, determining his/her role.
Jeraziah - During the day, Jeraziah talks and votes just like the saplings. At night, Jeraziah has the ability Protective Charm. Protective Charm protects any one player from the Hellborne at night. Jeraziah cannot protect himself.
Witch Slayer - During the day, Witch Slayer talks and votes just like the saplings. At night, Witch Slayer has the Silver Bullet ability. Silver Bullet is a targeted ability that instantly kills any live player. It has a 3 full-phase cooldown (3 days and 3 nights). If Silver Bullet is used on a protected target, or if Witch Slayer is mesmerized on the night he attempts Silver Bullet, the cooldown is triggered but the target is unharmed.
If Witch Slayer is killed on the same night he used Silver Bullet, Silver Bullet will still go off, and both Witch Slayer and his target will die (unless of course his target was the last remaining Hellborne player).
Legionnaire - During the day, Legionnaire talks and votes just like the saplings. However, Legionnaire can vote Doublevote; he can vote twice, for either the same player, or two different players once if he wishes. Legionnaire's role is revealed at the start of the game.
Hellborne (AKA Imps)
Victory: Hellborne team takes up half or more of remaining live players.
Defeat: All Hellborne players are eliminated.
The Imp - Imps talk and vote during the day just like saplings. At night they, along with any Hellborne heroes, collectively choose or vote on a victim by PMing me during Night. The Hellborne will win if there are as many Hellborne as other people remaining in the game.
The Madman - Madman has the same role as an imp but has the special ability to Stalk another being (any live player in the game) by PMing me during Night. Upon stalkage, Madman follows his victim during the night. If Scout decides to track Madman, he will be returned the role of Madman's victim rather than Madman. Stalk does not kill the victim, it only allows Madman to conceal his own role during and fool Scout. Madman is on the Imp side and has the same winning conditions.
Example: Madman stalks a sapling and Scout tracks Madman. Scout will receive the message that the player who is Madman is a Sapling.
The Succubus - Succubus has the role of an imp, but has the abilities Smitten and Mesmerize. Smitten renders any player (the Succubus herself even) powerless to vote during the day. Mesmerize disables a legion player during the night, preventing them from using their abilities. Smitten can only be used on Even Days (Day 2, 4, 6), and Mesmerize can only be used on Even Nights (Night 2, 4, 6). Smitten and Mesmerize cannot be used on the same player twice in a row.
If Succubus successfully Mesmerizes a legion hero who was attempting to use a skill, it will be revealed the next day. The player itself will not be revealed as the role, but I will say something like "Scout attempted to track, but found himself mesmerized instead." If Jera protects a target that was not attacked, and Succubus mesmerizes him, there will be no public announcement. Same with Witch Slayer if he did not attempt a Silver Bullet.
Furthermore, if Jeraziah's Protective Charm does not protect a player from being Mesmerized at night.
No talking when dead. A post with some sort of funny comment is allowed, however no strategy content should be included; "I knew I had it coming" is okay but "David and Snorlax are clearly imps, look into their voting history" is not. Dead imp are dead in imp chat as well. They may not give any further strategy input.Please type "I'm In" to enter this game. Once we have a good number of players (shooting for 24) I will work out the number of saplings/imps, and contact players on their roles. Any other questions regarding the game can be asked here. I should be online enough that the game doesn't get stuck for too long, but please try to be patient and check the thread once in a while to fulfill your roles if you are in.
As Hellborne, no confessional betrayals. By this I mean, ruining the game by raging and posting in the thread who the other Hellborne are. If you do this, myself and many others will be very sad. Also, you'll be banned from future games, obviously. This also means that you may not fake confessional betrayals like Positronz did in game 1. Although it was a strategic ploy and a lie, it will be illegal in future games.
Individual Legion players may not strategically discuss the game privately; they must do so with all other players in the thread, and during daytime.
This game is not a speed game. Day will take as long as needed to get a vote, so you can discuss and change your mind. Once a reasonable time has passed, and a majority vote has been cast a lynching will take place and night will begin.
This is a game of deception. You CAN reveal your role publicly (in fact that is the only way you should be revealing your role at all), however it may not always be strategically wise.
To keep the thread easier to read, at night please don't post too much in the thread. Night will end ASAP (basically whenever the imps and heroes have contacted me). Then day will begin, etc.
As you can see, I've added some new heroes. I'm unsure whether this will be completely balanced, so any comments and suggestions are welcome. This thread is beta at the moment, but sign-ups are available.
