So... You are waiting for a certain game to finish before you retire...

Say the Host of said game REALLY didn't WANT you to retire. And say said Host decided to not unpause said game for the purpose of keeping you around... Would that work? :D

That is a very ego-stimulating type of blackmail if I may say so :D

Though I fear my insanity can't be cured that easily (though I can try to switch the pills till I find something with less side-effects).

It was more of a plea to get Araver to play....

Sorry, missed it. I'm kinda "screwing"/hosting 2 at the present, so I'd be confused as an early released mental patient *shrug* But if it helps get the game underway and if it works mechanics wise ... then I will re-signup gladly.

Sure.

Skulduggery 2 will probably go before Coup just to keep a 19 player game out of the way of Glitch 2.

What other game are you hosting right now? =O

I saw a spot there ... right between you and Aura and figured ... this is the perfect spot to (not) get hit by lightning.

The Coup of Rhotus

This is a 4 vs 4 vs 4 with 7 indies. All indies are recruitable, but one in particular is not what he seems. If he is in the faction that wins while he is alive, all players in that faction lose except for him (negotiable).

All factions will be equal in roles/abilities and recruit percentage at the beginning of the game. However, each faction may vary on which role has what percent (and which position [i.e., Warlord/ruler] has which role or percent).

Abilities will be listed secretly publicly for those starting in a faction, but an order of actions (as well as a precedence list*) will be published. OOA will be sure to include >> instead of >. I'm considering listing abilities publicly for those who start in a faction. If I do, all players will have a secret ability (most passive). Indies would, in that case, have two secret abilities (more than likely, one would be passive).

*Note: Order of precedence will be the order of sub-phases during each night. Sub-phases include Movement, Recruiting, Acting (per the order of actions), BTSC Addition, etc. By doing this, it puts Movement and Recruiting outside the OOA (unblockable), but includes them for Freeze sequences. I'll hammer this one out soon.

Night Sub-Phases:

1. Movement

2. Recruiting

3. Acting (OOA is sub-points 3a->3g)

4. BTSC Addition

Day Phase.

This doesn't mean you'll have to be on during different times of the "Night", it's just the order in which things happen in order to clarify what Freeze sequences stop, what blocks stop, what areas are within your range, etc.

Recruiting is done in the style of Amber: Each person has a % chance of success. For every success, the % is reduced by 25. For failure, the person attempting to recruit is killed. Targets for recruit are by player name, not by role. The primary difference is that there is only one dedicated percent per person (that is, nobody has composite blood [two chances to recruit at 100%]).

If two or more players of different factions try to recruit the same person on the same night, both/all will fail. (Considering adding a point where "if multiple factions attempt to recruit the same indy, the faction who attempted the most on that particular indy will win. That is, if 1 person from A, 2 people from B, and 1 person from C try to recruit an indy, Team B will get the indy. If there's a tie for the most recruiters, nobody gets the indy.)

Each team leader starts in the BTSC thread (for convenience). In order to get others into BTSC, the leader must correctly RID guess a member of his faction. If the leader dies with nobody else in his BTSC, he appoints a successor. The successor gets access to the BTSC and retains the RID guess power of the leader. For every successor (including the first), one RID guess is lost forever. (I'm also considering a "meeting" for BTSC by ending a Night on the same space if in the same faction.

(I've considered having a second player of each faction in the BTSC from the beginning. Thoughts? Keep in mind that recruited indies will not gain BTSC unless they are correctly RID'd by the Leader.)

It will be done by sequence. Below is a list of sequences.

Courier--Traditional one-way message with one reply.

Freeze--Traditional block for the following night.

Kill--Traditional death with sub-categories.

--Subcategory A--target dies with no information revealed.

--Subcategory B--target dies and faction is revealed.

--Subcategory C--target dies and role is revealed.

--Subcategory D--target dies and role and faction are revealed (for indies...might not be used)

example: 1. KillĀ© Yuli by Hirkala

Spy--with subcategories

--Subcategory A--Target faction is revealed to initiator

--Subcategory B--Target role is revealed to initiator

--Subcategory C--Target faction and role are revealed to public

VETO--Revokes a previously passed sequence and may be started on any active sequence at any time.

Each player may only start up to 3 sequences per day. Additionally, only one Kill sequence (of any subcategory) may be started by a given player each day. A player may only initiate one spy sequence and may only be the target of one spy sequence per day.

Voting will last for 24 hours and be by secret ballot. Players must begin sequences in the main thread, but must PM votes to the host. They may change their votes as they please, but each individual player is responsible for keeping track of where his votes are!. At the end of the day, the full list (PM me the word 'bubbles' just so I know who actually read this) of sequences and votes will be published. (If a courier reaches absolute majority before the end of the day, I might PM the initiator and let them begin their courier. This depends on my ability to access MM.)

-ODTG: "Once During The Game"--An ability which can only be used exactly once.

-Range: The greatest number of hex spaces between a player and his target for an action to be successful. Note: Range=0 means they must share a space.

-LOS: Line-of-sight. For an action that requires LOS to be successful, the target must be within range and his position must be (relative to acting player) 1) Sharing a hex OR 2) On an adjacent hex, OR 3) On a hex which is directly across an adjacet hex, OR ..., which creates a straight line from the actor.

Movement: The number of hex spaces a player can move on a given night.

Cover/Concealment: Bonuses against ranged attacks provided by certain terrain (e.g., forest)

Beast: Any non-humanoid (as indicated by the RD). I don't know if this will really come into play or needs to be defined.

The board will be a triangle (or perhaps a hexagon) made up of hex spaces. In each corner will be a city/castle which will represent the present capitol of a Warlord (faction leader). In the style of Titanomachy, any player on a city may only affect other players on the same city (and may only be affected by other players on the same city). I'm looking into specific bonuses for cities.

Terrain will come in various types and have different effects. Here's a quick list:

City

Road

Plain

Forest

Water

Mountain/hill

Donno if I'll actually have bonuses and the like (for cover, etc). But they will/can affect movement. Other than that, it's really just to make the map pretty.

Chaos!

King Willem of Rhotus is dead by assassination. General Devist has staged a coup d'etat to overthrow the entire royal house. What was once the King's Army is now devoted to the power-hungry General who promises that his empire will rule the world.

Tarvigar, the ancient wizard residing to the north of Rhotus, uses the cover of the chaos to finally make his move in capturing the land for himself. He has summoned terrible beasts to aide him in his effort.

King Colliete of nearby Chothrom, an old friend of King Willem, will not see the Rhotus fall into the wrong hands. He has taken in many refugees, including the son of King Willem, who narrowly escaped the wrath of Devist. It is Colliete's mission to conquer Rhotus and return the land to the rightful prince.

WINCON for all factions = Be in majority (n/2 + 1) - Indies win with faction or survive until the end if not recruited.

Chothrom--WINCON: Be in majority

Colliete (Wizard + Warlord)--The wise king of Chothrom and old friend ofthe late King Willem. He fights to restore order to the country and return Borden to the throne. Quiet and calculating, he is said to be one of the wisest men in the world and the only king known to publicly use magic. Although a devout follower of the God, it is rumoured that his blood is half-Fae. In the style of the Fae, if he learns the true name of his enemy, he may slay them. RID Kill (range 3 with LOS)

Borden (Warrior)--Son of the late King Willem and heir to the throne of Rhotus. Prone to anger, he fights to avenge his dead family regardless of the cost to himself. At the beginning of the game, he must choose an ability that he thinks would best aide him in recovering the throne: Kill a player (range 0), spy a role (range 0), or block a player (range 2 LOS)

Danilta (Cleric)--High Priestess of the Holy Church of Chothrom and the religious adviser to King Colliete. It is by the Will of the God that Danilta goes to war to protect her King and restore order to Rhotus.

Each night she may ask for a Divine Sign that reveals to her the faction of one target (range 2)

Everly (Warrior)--Commander of the Army of Chothrom and devoted follower of Colliete. His undying faith and dedication have led him to many victories on the battlefield.

He may deploy his Army to block one player (range 2)

Vahact Empire--WINCON: Be in majority

Devist (Warrior + Warlord)--Former General under King Willem, he has staged a coup and overthrown the King. His strong will and lust for power might determine the outcome of this war.

He may block one player per night (range 2)

Cobran (Warrior)--Younger brother of Devist, he is always in the shadow of his brother's glory. It is his goal to prove to himself, to his brother, and to the world that he is an equal military commander.

His goal has made him into a heartless killer, allowing him to RID Kill one person per night (range 3 with LOS).

Vish (Wizard)--Tactician and Court Mage of King Willem, he convinced Devist to begin the uprising. He is well aware of the delicacy of these first few months after the rebellion.

He knows all manner of spells which allow him to see the faction of one player per night (range 2)

Brionisis (Cleric)--Scholar and philosopher who started the Brionisis Movement, which taught that all things that have happened are to the Will of the God and that the God really doesn't care. He is slowly trying to move the world away from the God to Nihilism and has decided that an alliance with the Vahact Empire is the best way to achieve his goals.

At the beginning of the game, he must choose his prefered method of reaching his goals: by force--Kill a player (range 0),--by wisdom--spy a role (range 0),--or by subtlety--block a player (range 2 LOS)

The Wizard's Army--WINCON: Be in Majority

Tarvigar (Wizard + Warlord)--A powerful sorceror who commands the elements, there is no mystery of magic not known to him. He was exiled to the north by King Willem's father many years ago and seeks his revenge while chaos reigns. His exile was rumoured to be about the disappearance of the the King's eldest daughter, sister to King Willem, aunt to Prince Borden.

At the beginning of the game, he must choose how he will conquer the chaotic lands: Kill a player (range 0), spy a role (range 0), or block a player (range 2 LOS)

Lidless (Warrior + Beast)--A golem made of iron summoned from the Nortwall Mountains. He protects the sorceror's tower and is devoutly obedient to his master.

Block one player (range 2)

Brieta (Cleric)--The kind daughter of Tarvigar who loves to read and write. She is well-versed in the stories of the Fae, the God, and the movements of Brionisis.

She may sense the motives of another player and learn their faction (range 2)

Gurhek (Warrior + Beast)--The sentient Green Dragon whose forest was destroyed by King Willem's men as they prepared for war. He has long since awaited his chance to destroy all men who worked for the late king and his allies.

His searing acid breath is his deadliest weapon: RID Kill (Range 3 with LOS)

Independants--WINCON: Survive to the end if unrecruited. If recruited, wins or loses with his faction. Any independant can be recruited to any faction. All Indy abilities are SECRET, but can be logically deduced as to their type by the night/day posts.

Roseflora (Wizard)--Fae enchantress who thinks war is a game. She just wants to be a part of that game.

Reginald (Warrior + Beast)--A centaur who commanded the Army of Rhotus before Devist. He retired long ago and led a life of seclusion until the recent turmoil boiled his blood.

Marien (Scout)--An elfin archer who fled home to see the world of men. She's more interested in learning about the world than going to war, but her skills as a hunter aren't overlooked.

The Elementals (Beast)--Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. Their power is matched only by their mystery and they may only be recruited by a Wizard. Any non-wizard that tries to recruit the Elementals makes his roll as normal. If it succeeds, the recruiter lives and his % drops by 25. If he fails, he dies. Any Wizard who tries to recruit the Elementals, however, has a 100% chance to do so, regardless of what their present percentage is. (if the Wizard is at 50% and tries to recruit the Elementals, he will succeed automatically and his recruitability will be reduced to 25%.)

Lyonia (Cleric)--A selfless follower of the God who gave up a life of luxury (rich, dramatic redundancy) to travel from village to village teaching His Will.

Illiem (Bard)--A traveling performer whose music is imbued with mystical power. His songs influence anyone who hear them, but the song is always Illien's choice.

Anali--A young girl found covered in blood in the capital during the coup. She was the only civilian survivor. Many priests (and superstitious folk) believe her to be Fae-blooded.

The OP was corrupted by a framework change that requires spoilers to have a title. So I changed the OP to include those, pulled the latest roster, and reposted it. There were no mechanic changes to the game at all.

If the roster isn't full by Tuesday/Wednesday of next week, I'll be cutting roles, redrawing the map, and starting the game.

Labour Day week is going to be very busy and I'd like to start and finish before then. Otherwise, I'm gonna fold this game. =/

I unsigned from Smiley Mafia, and am signing here. :)
