Default Nedokius: Dragon Fire and Elephant Noises Game Thread

READ OR DIE


HOW TO PLAY:

- All of you will be PMíd a role and your alignment. The objective is to eliminate all members of the opposing alignment from the game.

- Each player has been given a role with their own special ability. Your PM will explain what it does, if you are meant to know. You donít have to reveal what your role is to the other players, nor will I do so in my updates. Then again there is nothing to stop you, so if you feel that it may help prove your innocence, go ahead Ė just keep in mind that this could also backfire and help the mafia. In other words, claim at your own risk. Likewise, you may lie about who you are if you wish. If you want to use your abilities, PM me. DO NOT post it in the thread.

- The game is split into two phases, Day and Night. The game begins during the day, and all players (Mafia and Townie alike) post in the thread, deciding who to kill off. Lynching is the only way for the Townies to kill the Mafia, so be sure to examine voting patterns of your fellow players. I might also provide clues in the death write ups, but over-reliance on those is ill-advised as some may be traps. Day phases will last 48 hours or until a consensus is reached. Night phases will last 24 hours but may end earlier if all night activities are concluded.

- All voting and discussion is to occur within the thread. Town players may discuss who they think is Mafia, and Mafia members should be trying to bluff/convince/blend in, and generally try not to get voted for. To vote, post Vote: Username (MUST BE IN BOLD AND RED!). You can also change your vote, by typing Change Vote: Username (AGAIN BOLDED AND IN RED!). You can also change your vote to nobody by typing Change Vote: No Vote (IN BOLD AND RED!). You can also choose to vote for No Lynching by using Vote: No Lynch (yeah... BOLDED AND IN RED!), meaning you actively vote to not lynch anyone during that day phase rather than passively not voting at all. You must post in the thread for your vote to be counted. You do not have to vote if you do not wish to.

- A Day Phase is over whenever a person obtains more than 50% of the vote (and is lynched) or when the 48 hours run out. If no majority vote has been reached by the time the day phase expires, a no lynch will be declared. Once a person dies, I will reveal their alignment and role.

- Night falls after somebody is executed or a no lynch is achieved. During this time, the Mafia can discuss who they want to kill next (using whatever form of communication appeals to them). Abilities are also used during this time. To use an ability, PM the mods (Arrows / Imarevenant), and he will PM you the outcome of the ability if you are to receive one before the following day phase. If it is something serious like somebody getting killed, I will update it in the thread. If possible though, try to PM me what you want to do as soon after night falls as possible to keep things moving along at a quick pace.

- Night ends once I post who gets killed, and the cycle repeats itself. The Town players win if all Mafia members are dead, and vice versa. Remember, this is a team effort, so if you think sacrificing someone may help your cause, go ahead.

-Remember, some roles such as investigators and protectors are more valuable to the town Ė so try to keep them alive!


RULES:

- I know itís the Dog Pound (Mafia Forum), but try not to postwhore in the thread anyway. Feel free to trash talk, accuse, call out other players if you want, but if youíre going to vote, at least state some kind of reason as to why youíre doing so.

- Though I canít force you to post, Iíd love to see active participation. I would advise everyone try to check in with this game at least once a day. Things move fast and you can fall behind pretty easily.

- Once you are dead, you stay dead, and may not participate until the game is over. This includes notes found on your corpse, cryptic messages from the dead, etc, etc. You may also not advise the remaining players on what to do Ė besides, to prevent cheating, I will not provide the dead with any additional information than they would get if they were still alive. Of course, Iím willing to listen to your theories as to whatís going on. Likewise, I'd appreciate if those not taking part try not help those playing, though general comments on how things are going would be welcomed in the Sign Up Thread.

- Unless your role PM specifically states otherwise, all players may not discuss game plan, your role, or alignment outside the thread. Of course, I canít enforce this, but I believe secretly revealing information amongst each other would spoil the game, so try not to do it.

- Players are not allowed to edit their posts in this thread at all, as it allows for those who make mistakes to remove all of the evidence without any effort. Since I can't enforce this, I strongly encourage all players to scrutinize any posts they notice that have been edited.

-Players are not allowed to cut and paste anything straight from the Role PM except the Role title. No cutting and pasting from the body of the PM. You can paraphrase what your Role PM says but that is all.

-Please play your role/alignment and play to win. I will be strict about this, so please don't make me enforce it.

-Talking about your role after death or to those who have died IS NOT allowed.

-Not everything is as it seems. If something unexpected happens, feel free to question it to me in private, and if I can, I'll answer.

- In an effort to promote discussion from all players a minimum post limit of 5 posts per day phase is in play.

- With inability to be able to lock the thread, I ask that the night phase talk to be limited to no more than 5 posts. And that it not be game related.

I reserve the right to mod kill if we find out that any of these rules have been broken. Please remember that you are not the only one playing this game, so don't ruin it for everyone else!

The mods for this game are Arrows and Imarevenant. All PMs regarding abilities, questions or anything else should be sent to them. If you fail to communicate your information then I will go on what I have. You have be warned!

Let us all keep in mind that this is a game and should be an enjoyable experience.

Night Zero

He couldn't believe his awful luck.

He hid in the shadows, surveying the tower before him for any possible way in or up without being spotted. The knights guarding this tower have been under strict order to refuse entry to anyone not approved by The Master. He certainly wasn't on that short list. Only just a few weeks ago he'd been detained by the knights after being caught stealing something so insignificant he couldn't believe they locked him up.

He wouldn't be free right now either, if it wasn't for the lady that offered him a deal. Retrieve what's at the top of this tower and bring it to her, and he can walk away with no questions asked. One more job for his freedom sounded like a good idea an hour ago, but as he gazed upon the top of the tower and the soft green light illuminating the top room, he had to pause and reconsider that decision.

------------------------------------------------------

"Are you sure this is going to work?"

A small group gathered in one of the smaller meeting halls with not even a lit candle giving any indication that they were here. Plans needed to be laid out for what to do after tonight, and the young woman in charge didn't seem impressed with her ally questioning this plan.

"Of course it's going to work. The Master has failed to protect us from them. Someone new has to take his place and ready us for the fight we know is coming. So many people died because of them. That can't happen again."

Her passion was shared by her allies, though there were still questions of this plans effectiveness.

"You know that thing has a mind of it's own, right? It chose your Master. What if it doesn't choose you? What if it doesn't choose him..."

As if on cue, the meeting room rumbled as a powerful force of energy hit the building. A green light took over everything momentarily as it shot out, then upward into the sky. The night sky turned a dark shade of green around the beam firing into space, a beacon to anyone that something has happened here.

------------------------------------------------------

Back outside the tower, the prisoner lay unconscious, flung from halfway down the tower, where he'd managed to escape to after awakening the gem at the top. Two knights rushed to aid him, and moved him as far away from the tower as they could. Strong gusts of wind made this increasingly difficult, and then the unmistakable booming sounds of a dragon silenced all confusion.

Knights rushed from every corner of the castle, ready and willing to defend this place with all their might. It would be no more than a pathetic attempt at doing so. The dragon descended through the clouds, finally visible to the knights. This wasn't a dragon like the ones they train and ride. This was the father of all of those dragons. THE Dragon. One of the strongest beings to exist.

They didn't have a chance.

With one exhale, flames engulfed the area beneath the dragon, wiping out every knight who dared stand before it. Hundreds of knights would fall on this night, and any lucky enough to have not been part of the massacre would soon realize things are only going to get worse.


Arrows is dead. He was Ernst, Dragonbrook Aligned Blue Knight Graduate.

Sample Role PM:

Quote:
You are Ernst, Dragonbrook Aligned Blue Knight Graduate.

Tonight was supposed to be a celebration of your graduation to official knight. There was going to be cake. With candles. Then you and your friends became candles.

You win when all threats to Dragonbrook have been eliminated.

It is now Day Phase One. With 19 people remaining, its 10 to reach majority lynch. You have until 3:00 PM EST (8:00 PM GMT?) Friday, February 15th, to reach a majority decision. If no majority is reached the day will end in a no lynch.



You are free to post.

I probably should've read the rules BEFORE I voted instead of after.

I'm here and excited for this game. I still need to read through the first two Nedokius games, as I think that will help with understanding the writeups in this one a bit more.

Either way, should be fun!
