Election! - The Game Thread
 
Pogvannah is known as a peaceful town on the river in the deep south, where folks live long, healthy lives and the crime rate is 0%. However, on January 15, 2007, that all changed. Sensei Nicholasp27, the captain of the Pogvannah rowing team, which has finished dead last in every event the past 5 years, was found slayed in the Comic Hall, having suffered a fatal head wound from a giant pumpkin.

World-traveller Durron597 popped into town just long enough to say "It looks like you've got Werewolves!" and then rushed away again.

Forensic Scientist JaredL took at look at the scene and told the town that it would take 9 Werewolves to pick up a pumpkin that size, so there must be 9 wolves in the town!

The village got together and decided on a plan of action. They would not kill their fellow citizens, but would instead elect one each day to send to the state capital. The Governor of the state was born and raised in Pogvannah and was willing to put elected Pogvannahians on his cabinet. However, with 9 out of 33 townspeople being Werewolves, the mob decided they did not want the decision made by a simple majority. Instead, citizens would vote on those they trusted to be sound decision makers each day. The three with the most votes would form the electorate and they would decide who would be sent up to the capital that evening.

***Game Rules***


Each day will start between 9-10am and run until 10pm, or when everyone has voted, whichever comes first. The top 3 vote

recipients each day will choose the person to be elected (lynched) that evening. You may only vote ONCE per day. Once you

vote, it is in the ballot box and thus cannot be changed. Please vote by saying vote player [name]. If you would like,

you may 'support' as many candidates as you'd like during the day by saying i support player [name]. I will keep a

support meter going along with the locked-in votes count (countif) each day.

The first two days, everybody is eligible to receive votes and be voted onto the electorate. However, anybody that does not

receive at least one vote from someone other than themselves by the end of the second day will be deemed not sound enough to

make such an important decision and will thus be ineligible to receive votes the rest of the game (keep reading for conditions

that can change this).

Moreover, anybody not actually voted onto the electorate by the end of day 4 will also be determined to be unfit and thus

ineligible to receive votes the remainder of the game.

However, when any eligible player dies n4 or later, they may choose to pass their legacy to a player still in the game. If they

do so, then that player will become eligible for the remainder of the game.

I will post a list of eligible players each morning starting d3.

When the village dwindles down to a handful of players, we will switch to only voting in the top vote getter to make the

decision instead of a trio of electorates. This will happen when the village has 10 or less players.

Each night at 10pm, JaredL will post a preliminary vote count based on the public votes in the thread. Players who can alter

the votes (vote buyers, bakers, dictator) have until 10:10 to do so by pming JaredL. Jared will then post a list of the 3

players who are on the electorate, in order from most votes to least votes. If there is a tie, he will rand() to determine this

ordering. The top player is the head electorate and will have the power to break a tie if all 3 vote for different players to

elect (lynch). These 3 should post who they wish to elect in the thread by 10:30.

NOTE: Electorates are not bound to any 'platform' they ran on or 'promises' they made in the thread during the day. They may choose to elect whomever they decide once they are on the council. They should do so by saying elect player [name] in the thread by 10:30pm after their name is posted by Jared. The three of them may post in the thread to discuss whom to elect, but once they make their elect post, they may not change that decision.

***Roles***


There are 33 players in this game. 9 are Werewolves and 24 are villagers.


Villager Power Roles

2 Seers -> Standard seer role. Each peeks every night and both got n0 peeks.

Roleblocker -> May choose to block one player from their night action each night.

Ballot Box Stuffer -> This villager's vote counts for 3 each day instead of 1

Reporter -> May investigate one player each night to see if they are home, ie if they have any night action or not.

Kidnapper -> If elected (lynched), he may choose one player to come to the capital (die) with him.

Vote Buyer -> May choose one player each evening to move their vote to a player of his choice. Must pm Jared by 10:10pm.

Dictator -> May choose to take over the electorate one day during the game. Must pm Jared by 10:10pm on the day he wishes to exercise his power and then post his decision in the thread by 10:30pm. He may use this power even if ineligible to receive votes. Once the power is used, he is a normal villager for the rest of the game, but will be an eligible villager who also has the right to pass down his legacy like any other eligible villager.

Yang -> This villager is tied to the wolf Ying. If Ying is elected (lynched), then Yang must go to the capital with him. If Yang is lynched/killed/assassinated, then Ying does not die. Also, if Ying is assassinated, Yang does not die. If Ying and Yang both vote for the same player, their combined votes count as 5, not 2.

Baker -> Each night, starting n0, he bakes one cupcake. Any day, he may choose to use some/all of his baked goods to move votes from rand()

players who did not vote for him onto him. He must pm Jared by 10:10 to use this power that day. No matter what he does, he always bakes exactly one each night. He may use this power to get votes even if he is ineligible, but it will not give him further eligibility and legacy power unless he actually makes it onto the electorate.

Assassin -> Has the option to make one kill per day/night cycle. However, he may only kill someone who has been on the electorate at some point during the game, as assassins kill high profile people. If he doesn't make a kill during a cycle, they do not build up. Day/night cycle starts with d1, so d1/n1 is the first opportunity, then d2/n2, d3/n3, etc. This means he could kill in n1 and d2 if he wishes, but then couldn't kill again until at least d3. He wins with the village like all other villagers.

2 Innkeepers -> Angel/Doctor role. Can protect themselves. If protects a seer, then they put the seer and one other rand() villager into 2 of their 3 'safe rooms.' If wolves try to kill either of these 2 players, they are protected. However, if wolves specify that their target is the seer and the person is the seer, then they will tear apart one of these 3 rooms. So 1/3 chance of killing seer, 1/3 of killing rand() villager and 1/3 of no kill. The rooms take 3 days to rebuild, so if they attack a 2nd night in a row, they will kill either the seer or rand() villager for sure. However, if they specify the target is a seer and it's not a seer, then no night kill occurs, even if the player wasn't protected.


Voting Bloc -> This bloc is composed of 4 villagers who do not know each other's identities. If all 4 vote for the same person, their vote power doubles, so 8 instead of 4. Also, one member is the 'head' of the bloc and is allowed to send one pm via mod to the other 3 players once during the game. These 4 may not speak to one another outside of the thread and the mods will not confirm who the members are. They will reveal as 'voting bloc' or 'head voting bloc' upon death/sight.






Wolf Power Roles

Evil Vote Buyer -> May choose one player each evening to move their vote to a player of his choice. Must pm Jared by 10:10pm.

Evil Box Stuffer -> This wolf's vote counts for 2 each day instead of 1

Evil Baker -> Each night, starting n0, he bakes one cupcake. Any day, he may choose to use some/all of his baked goods to move votes from rand() players who did not vote for him onto him. He must pm Jared by 10:10 to use this power that day. No matter what he does, he always bakes exactly one each night. He may use this power to get votes even if he is ineligible, but it will not give him further eligibility and legacy power unless he actually makes it onto the electorate.

Ying -> Tied to the villager Yang. If elected (lynched), then he takes Yang with him (kills yang). He cannot be harmed by his connection to Yang no matter how Yang dies. Also, if Ying and Yang vote for the same player, their combined vote power is 5, not 2.

Evil Roleblocker -> May choose to block one player from their night action each night.
