EDIT: For the final draft of the setup that will be run on March 17th, scroll down to post 74.
I ran a game in January 2016 on another site that was successful, and I don't know why I never ran it again. I feel like it would be a good way to break the ice after a long hiatus of hosting/playing. Take a few minutes to skim the game thread here and let me know what you like and/or dislike about the setup. Also let me know if you'd like to be invited to play it. I will be running it on MU, incorporating whatever constructive criticism I can obtain from this thread, on March 18th.
--1 seer will be given a randed n0 Villager peek.
--6 vanillagers have a vest that may be worn one night only to guarantee survival that night.
--1 backup seer is initially told the lie that he is a vanillager with a vest, but if the seer dies he is then told that he is the new seer.
----If the seer is lynched and the backup seer survives the night, the backup seer gets a peek.
----If the seer is night killed, the backup seer must survive the following day and night to get a peek.
--1 mayor -- if lynched, the 2nd-place votegetter gets lynched instead. If the vote at lynch is tied, it will not be revealed whether the lynched player was chosen at random or because the other player was the mayor.
3 wolves with 24/7 chat via Discord only and a team night kill submitted via Discord.
1 neutral serial killer (SK) who appears to the wolves as a wolf, appears to the seer as a wolf, is revealed to everyone when lynched as a wolf, participates in wolfchat, and has his own night kill submitted via PM.
The night kills by the wolf team and by the SK must be of a villager unless all villagers are already dead. Everyone in wolfchat must agree to the wolf team's target or it will be randed, and the SK will then choose his target.
A Vanillager's vest will malfunction unless the Vanillager had left a clear fake villager peek on d1. Vanillagers are not informed if their vests are hit.
This game is designed to give each of the three teams a 1 in 3 chance of winning.
--The SK wins when all villagers are dead and the number of wolves alive is 0 or 1.
--The wolves win when the SK is dead and they achieve parity with the village.
--The village wins when the only players alive are villagers.
If and when the game reaches a point where the Village cannot win, any remaining Villagers shall be modkilled.
Wolfchat is terminated and prohibited when all Villagers are dead.
Lynch votes may not be changed if the only remaining players are
the three wolves and the SKnon-villagers. If a wolf is then lynched, each of the last 2 wolves will submit a night kill. The one NOT killed by the SK decides the wolf team's night kill:
--if it is the SK then the wolves win.
--if it is the same wolf that the SK killed then the SK wins
Lynch votes also may not be changed when the only players alive are two villagers and one non-villager. If in this situation a villager is lynched and the non-villager is
--a wolf, the wolves win (dead SK and parity achieved).
--the SK and the remaining villager has
----no vest, the SK wins.
----a vest, it is a tie between the Village and the SK.
The winning team in this setup as played was:
1 neutral serial killer (SK) , played by Ace of Spaids
