City Watch Whodunnit Sign Up

Postby captainmeme » Wed Mar 23, 2011 4:31 pm

Hi everyone,
This is a version of the whodunnit game Mafia.
This probably won't be as good as the previous whodunnit gameson this forum, but I'm going to give it a go.

How to Play

1) Sign up here! You need to be able to post at least once a week. If you can't you can still be a civilian and post in the thread, but you won't be able to vote or get killed.

2) When the game starts (sometime between Saturday and Tuesday depending on how many people have signed up) I will PM everyone playing telling them their roles, which will be either a watchman or an infiltrator. Some watchmen will have special character abilities (see Character List)

3) You are not allowed to tell anyone who you are, or (if you have one) what your special ability is, unless given permission by me, which probably won't happen. The infiltrators will be told in their PM who the other infiltrator(s) is/are.

4) Only the Infiltrators are allowed to PM each other, to decide who they want to kill. The only person anyone else is allowed to PM is me.

5) At the start of the game, it will be a day phase, which means that you can vote someone to be executed. You are allowed to change your vote once if you wish; no more than that. The player with the most votes will be executed and I will reveal who they were. The day phase will last up to four days.

6) Then comes the night phase. The Infiltrators will have to PM me about who they want to kill, preferably after deciding agmonst themselves by PM. If they cannot decide by themselves, they will each send me their choice and I'll toss a coin or something. The watchmen with special abilities will have to PM me about who they want to protect/investigate.

7) At the end of the night phase (which will last about 2 days) I will reveal who was murdered and who they were. The day phase then resumes.

8 ) This continues until either the Infiltrators kill off the entire Watch (In which case the Infiltrators win) or until all the infiltrators are executed (In which case the Watch win)

The Rules

I think most of these are explained above, but I'll write them out again:

1) Don't reveal your role to anyone else (The infiltrators will already know who each other are.)

2)Don't try to Roleplay your character - as Narrator I'm telling the story, not you!

3) Don't get upset if you die: you can come back to life as a civilian so you can post in the thread, but you can't vote or die.

4) This is a light-hearted game; don't get angry!

5) Don't argue with the narrator!

The Characters

(The roles that are divided amognst the players)

Infiltrators: These men have been sent by the Rich Ankh Families to dismantle the Watch, as it seems to be threatening their power. The Infiltrators will stop at nothing - not even murder - to take the City Watch apart)

Angua: The Werewolf in the City Watch, Angua can find out much more about people than they want her to; by smell. Commander Vimes will let her interrogate one watch member every night. She will then find out what that person is (via PM) but she is not allowed to tell anyone else.

Igor: This Watch member is the number one medical man; every night he can choose someone to protect, and if that person is attacked, he'll be able to save them.

Other Watchmen: These people are powerless to protect or investigate but Vimes will give them the oppurtunity to vote on who the murderer is.

Narrator: Me!



Feel free to ask any questions you need to. And please sign up!
