'Kay - we're up to 6 peeps so room for at least 1 more person and here's another teaser on our cruel and unusual dynamics for this game...
Lord 'Long' Lankin
~ The Queen's favourite Elf-man and one-man serial killer in this game. This tall stylish psychopath will kill every night phase and although he can work with his Queen, he has the final say on who gets elf-shot - in other words he can choose his own target, however miffed his Lady might get with him...
~ In this game she'll be a 'blocker' and so she will be trying to find the Witches to stop them using their powers to kill, or to investigate her or Lord Lankin. In regular Mafia this role is known as a LONA as she keeps the opposition distracted whilst she's 'entertaining' them...
~ In her day job as top Headologist in the Ramtops, or indeed, the Disc, Granny's role in this is known as the 'Psychiatrist' whose task is to render Lord Lankin harmless. Easy Peasy for Lancre's top Witch and so her role is a protective one for the non-killers (including the Queen regrettably), but is only 'investigative' in the absence of a night kill... If she finds the murderous Lankin his killing power will be removed for the rest of the game and so leave him vulnerable to targetting by Granny's sidekick...
~ don't be fooled by the earthiest earth mother act - she can be the other type of 'mother' when need arises, and when there are Elves about witches can't afford to put on kid gloves. They get down and dirty! Nanny's role is known as 'the Vigilante', so she's got the ability to go gonneing for Lord Lankin at any time. Day or Night!
But there's a catch, because witches have to be disciplined naturally.
She only gets to kill twice and if she uses one shot during the day she cannot shoot the following night - or vice versa. So think very carefully before you start shooting, Nanny - and listen to your Granny!
Oh - and if Nanny does decide to kill during the day phase, the lynch goes ahead as planned too so be very careful who you're targetting, because you may find you don't get to make all your votes if you pick on the wrong person to kick out of the game... I'm afraid this game is going to be very prickly for everyone!
