    Preface: I never do any sort of bastard modding. What you see is 100% what you get, no false or misleading information is ever presented to players by myself as moderator.

    Overview
    Witchhunt is a game in which the Innocent majority tries to root out the Witch minority that lives among them. The game alternates Day and Night phases, starting with Day. Each Night the Witches communicate with each other a small amount and choose a target to kill by plurality vote. Each Day the entire Town (including those secretly Witches) discusses the events and holds their own majority vote to lynch a suspect. Voting for yourself or voting not to kill will be permitted in both cases, and be treated as normal ballot options. Neither role nor faction alignment of a player is revealed on death, unlike some versions. The game ends with a victory for either side when the other is eliminated. (or when this becomes logically unavoidable)

    Voting
    At any appropriate time, a player may cast their formal Vote for both Town Votes or Witch Votes. Please be explicit; in form games bold, and in real-life games point. You are permitted to change your Vote if a majority has not yet been reached.

    The moment a majority is reached for a Town Vote, it ends. In a majority is not reached by the end of a Day, the phase will be extended 24 hours to hold a runoff vote between the parties with the most votes. Failure to vote at all before the end of this time will be considered a "no lynch" vote.

    Guardian Angels
    This is a very significant (and very beneficial) alteration to the game suggested by Chris Barney at GDC when we were brainstorming ways of dealing with elimination. Dead players are not eliminated from the game, but instead remain as Guardian Angels. Dead players are aware of all Night activity. Each Night, before the Witch Vote (doesn't matter in forum game), all dead players Protect one living player by plurality vote. A Witch Vote targeting this player will fail to kill--the fact that the particular player was targeted will be announced publicly.

    Guardian Angels cease when the game gets down to 4 players or fewer. Note that Witches serve as Angels as well, but continue to support their faction. Dead Witch players may be able to mislead and manipulate the other Angels.

    Witch Sacrifice
    If Witches vote to kill one of their own voting members, that is a Sacrifice. Witches can still make their normal kill, which will now ignore Protection. Only half of Witches are needed for a Sacrifice Vote; not a majority.

    Cornered Spy Rule: If the Spy votes alone, it does not count if anyone is voting for him.

    Player Communication
    There are certain intuitive restrictions on communication between players.
    • Only living players may post in this thread
    • Player posts may not be edited.
    • Players may not post any images or non-text.
    In addition, two rules which are not auto-enforced must be followed by all players:
    • Players may never privately communicate with each other or non-players concerning the decision-making of the game.
    • Players may not quote the Witch QT from this topic, either automatically or manually. (copy-paste)

    This should be obvious, but you are encouraged to lie and manipulate your way to victory. Both factions benefit from deceiving the other. Anyone may at any time claim to be any role in the above communication, publicly or privately; unlike some versions of the game, the game design here supports this.

    FAQ:

    Spy:
    One of the Witches in every game will be replaced with the Spy. The Spy is on the Innocent faction and should work to undermine the Witches. The Spy does not possess the special ability of whatever Witch he replaces, except for the Junior Witch.

    Remember, Witches can benefit massively if they sacrifice the Spy, and remember that the Spy will lose all 1v1 Witch Votes against him--think very carefully before deciding to come out. The Town needs him to stick around to defeat the Werewolf. The Spy always Checks as "good" by the Priest.

    Werewolf:
    The Werewolf is neither Innocent nor Witch; he is his own third party and survives all Lynchings.
    He also has an important ability: the power to Devour other players once per Day. To do so, he must publicly name another player's Role. If he is correct, the target is killed and the Werewolf is immune to all death until the next Day. Since the Spy technically has two Roles, he cannot be Devoured!

    The Werewolf cannot be Lyched, but can be killed by the Witches, the D.O.B., or by having a Lover get Lynched. (See Enchantress)
    The Werewolf always Checks as "evil" by the Priest. (Like a Witch)

    Priest
    The Priest is the most powerful Innocent role, alongside the Spy. His existence means the Innocent faction draws closer to knowing everyone's alignment each passing night, making it a race against time for both sides.
    Each night, the Priest Checks a target living player. The moderator privately responds if the target is "good" or "evil". The Spy appears good, and the Werewolf appears evil. A good Priest will be cautious about revealing his identity and findings, since it may put himself and accidentally the Spy at extreme risk!
    The Junior Witch role appears good until she begins participating in Witch Votes, at which point she will appear evil.

    Survivalist and Dirty Old Bastard
    These two roles balance the Werewolf out. On one hand, players cannot distinguish between a Town Vote failing to kill the Survivalist or the Werewolf. On the other, the D.O.B. gives the Innocents a single last chance to kill the Werewolf...if he feels like it. Note that the Survivalist can survive *any* sort of death, and the D.O.B. can also use his kill to take out defensive Witches that are in some way immune to Lynching.

    Assassin
    After a Sacrifice, if the Assassin is alive the moderator will announce that the Witches may select two targets to kill. Both these kills will ignore Protection. If the Assassin himself is sacrificed, the effect still occurs.

    Enchantress
    At the start of the game, the Enchantress may select two Lovers. These players are informed of each other's identity and faction. (Spy and Junior Witch appear as "Innocent", like Priest Checks.) If one is ever Lynched and killed, the other is immediately killed as well. Death by any other cause does not trigger this effect, nor does a failed Lynching. Note that the Enchantress does not have to select Lovers.

    The Enchantress is immune to all Lynchings as long as both Lovers are alive. All other causes of death still work.

    Jacob's Rule: When a player is Lovers with the Werewolf, they are now on the Werewolf faction.

    Benoit Haché Member

    wtf Sotek is a total jerk and stuff!

    Here are a couple of reasons why you shouldn't vote me

    -I am probably town

  13. Sotek

    Sotek Super Moderator Staff Member

    yeah well I assume we will vote someone else once you slow guys who have to like, "read your role" and shit pick someone else, that's another part of the tradition.

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

    Sotek's unofficial vote tally! (5 is lynch, 4 is sufficient to force nolynch)

    I vote for the next person to make a vote that is conditional on somebodies vote choices, excluding this vote.

    In all seriousness... I dunno yet. Bandwagon pressure Benoit into claiming something is reasonable-ish I guess?

    Vote Benoit.
  15. Benoit Haché

    I will defend myself when the time is coming

    the time has not come yet though

    Yeah, Benoit is as good as anyone else, I figure he's the most likely to make anti-town plays except maybe jiaflu?

  22. acidile

    acidile Member

    actually nvm it was benoit who did it (he turned a conditional vote into a vote for myself). Taking out Benoit's HILARIOUS play, jiaflu actually tripped my conditional vote.

    Well, thanks for correcting it for me! ;)

    Almost forgot that 5 was lynch, was gonna join on to push, but that's too many, don't wanna be just 1-away.

    Alright, since we're obviously just being retarded.

    Are there any D1 claims that make sense here?
  33. Sotek

    Sotek Super Moderator Staff Member

    Guys, we got 30 minutes. We need to push for some info. I mean yeah we'll have judge pop someone, that's cool and all, but ... we need info. Do we really need to rehash the last game's lynch/nolynch debate?
  34. Sotek

    Sotek Super Moderator Staff Member

    Werewolf should definitely claim. <.<

    so liek wut if duh spi totully reveeled weeches n let da wulfy feest? totully besssst strategery EVAR.

    Seriously though, hard to get any real reads early on :p
  36. acidile

    acidile Member

    No, but I don't want random finger-pointing to be the reason why we are targetting. In such a small game it is so easy for us to be pressuring an innocent 100% of the time, witches have quite a bit of pull.

    IMO our best bet is someone who either:

    -Has pointed fingers already
    -Hasn't been targetted already
  37. jiaflu

    jiaflu Member

    Different situation, obviously. 1/4 shot we pop the lovers (assuming non spy enchantress) eww...

    But! Not going down a route that clearly is fail. Stick with my vote for now.
  38. Sotek

    Sotek Super Moderator Staff Member

    Yeah, maybe the best play really is lynch one of the worse players just to avoid unforced errors? Not sure, since: no reads.
  39. ChumpChange

    ChumpChange Well-Known Member Staff Member

    x1372 (it's not that hard to remember!) is a little suspicious to me - random.org is a pretty convenient excuse to start piling on, and we've seen that he's a sneaky guy.

    I'm just, uh, gonna reread the roles before I cast my vote though.
  40. Milskidasith

    Milskidasith Active Member

    Wait, how long is this game going to last, anyway? I do have to go to bed at some point, and while I can probably last a few more hours, I can't last much longer than that.

    Anyway, I dunno, I really have no relevant info at this point.
  41. ChumpChange

    ChumpChange Well-Known Member Staff Member

    Wait. 25 minutes?

    fuuuuuuck
  42. Sotek

    Sotek Super Moderator Staff Member

    So, who is that.

    ... Chad. Chad hasn't posted at all, what the heck?

    Vote Chad!.

    Damn, I was just reading other roles and realized there is an assassin in this game. This IS going to be fast. >_>

    Woah there actually is a reason to vote for somebody?
  45. x1372

    x1372 Active Member

    Hey, 1d8 (was gonna reroll if I got my number) on the names list. hit a 2. Shit happens bro.

    Also yeah, where IS chad?
  46. jiaflu

    jiaflu Member

    Oh, I 1d8'd with my number as no lynch, haha.
  47. ChumpChange

    ChumpChange Well-Known Member Staff Member

    Okay, here's what I'm thinking.

    Scary players:
    Sotek
    Chad
    acidile
    x1372

    If any of them is a witch, we are in serious trouble. Should this inform our voting at all?
  48. Sotek

    Sotek Super Moderator Staff Member

    At the moment. Last I checked his user page he was viewing other game, but that was a bit ago, so I dunno.
  49. Benoit Haché

    Benoit Haché Member

    Woah odds are a funny business imo! I'd think Milsky is also good? but maybe not enough to have trimlist.
  50. acidile

    acidile Member

    I am fine with the chad vote for now, but I'm keeping an eye out for Sotek too. Just the standard initial-voters-are-suspicious thing.

    vote Chad
