Game Mechanics 1) You may NOT reveal your alternate identity to anyone. Doing so will lead to an untimely death (UD). a. Hinting at your true identity through any posts, signatures, or avatars is forbidden. b. Confirming to another player who guesses at your identity is forbidden. c. Players’ true identities will be revealed at game’s end by those who wish to reveal who they are. 2) Each game day, everyone in the town has to vote to lynch someone. You vote by saying (in bold)… I vote to burn xx at the stake. a. You must cast a vote for each day/night cycle. You can not vote to lynch ‘no one’ or yourself. If you fail to vote, you will die an untimely death. b. If you decide to switch your vote, please state in bold you are doing so and the new vote. If you fail to retract your previous vote, the new vote will not count. c. Do not put your vote in your signature. 3) Whoever has the most votes gets eliminated. If you have two and everyone else has one vote… you get lynched. a. The priority of night time happenings is: Herbalist's Protection Burn at the stake Witches death spell Warlock's spells Investigations UDs b. If multiple people have the same number of votes, I will use a random number generator to decide which of those gets lynched. 4) Again, if you do not vote daily, then you will die an untimely death (UD). 5) Everything stays in the game, no PMing people and setting up deals or alliances, or discussing issues in this game on other sites. The sole exception to this is the authorization by me for special role players to do so. That's kind of the point. If you are discussing things, then everyone else doesn't get the benefit of your deliberations. Think town hall rather than internet chat room 6) You can claim whatever you want in the game, but you can't 'prove it' by posting any PMs received during the game (role assignment or otherwise). 7) While the use of site moderator ‘special powers’ can’t be controlled by the game moderator, using abilities not available to all players can present an unfair advantage. Site moderators are encouraged to not use such powers, and forbidden from posting any information gained through the use of such powers. 8) The Witches wins, when they outnumber the Innocents. 9) The Innocents win when they lynch all the Witches. 10) Do not edit your posts! 11) NO AFTER DEATH POSTS! IF YOU MUST, PLEASE KEEP THEM TO A MINIMUM!!! NO REVEALING ANY ADDITIONAL INFO!!! I STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT AUTHORIZED PEOPLE COMMUNICATE VIA AN OFF SITE MESSAGING BOARD LIKE MSN/AIM/ICQ OR THROUGH EMAIL. If for any reason you need to leave the game, please PM me, do not post it in the thread. IF YOU POST THAT YOU QUIT YOU DIE AS SOON AS I SEE THE POST. NO EXCEPTIONS. YOUR ROLE WILL BE REVEALED. I don't care if you recant the quit you will still die. "In the game you will get accused, grilled, made to look like an idiot, and a hundred other things. REMEMBER THAT THIS IS A GAME. Do not take anything personally, but please keep posts within reason. Any posts that I feel are out of line could result in a removal from the game.” Do not post until I say GAME ON!
