Question

1879 - the Civil War is over, and the resulting economic explosion spurs the great migration west. Farmers, ranchers, prospectors, killers, and thieves seek their fortune. Cattle growers turn cow towns into armed camps, with murder rates higher than than those of modern day New York or Los Angeles. Out of this chaos comes legendary lawman Wyatt Earp, retiring his badge and gun to start a peaceful life for his family. Earp's friend, John, Doc Holliday, a southern gentlemen turned gunman and gambler, also travels west, hoping the dry climate would relieve his tuberculosis. Silver is discovered in Arizona. Tombstone becomes queen of the boom towns where the latest Paris fashions are sold from the backs of wagons. Attracted to this atmosphere of greed, over 100 exiled Texas outlaws band together to form the ruthless gang recognized by the red sashes they wear. They emerge as the earliest example of organized crime in America. They call themselves, The Cowboys.

*Subtle difference, but it's more semantics than anything else. Regular Night cycle. Similar Day cycle, except there is no lynching. Instead every day there will be a "Shoot-out at the OK Corral". Votes will be shots and the player who is shot at the most dies.

Lawmen: the Goodies WinCon kill all Cowboys

Wyatt Earp - Can not die at night while Doc Holliday is alive. Action - Can make any "shot" x0,x1, or x2 - Has BTSC with Doc

Doc Holliday - Protects Wyatt at night. Can not die at the OK Corral. Rather a random shooter at Doc will be killed instead. Doc can send in a "do not return fire" list during the day. These players will be removed from randomization. Role will be revealed. Has BTSC with Wyatt.

Virgil Earp - Becomes marshal of Tombstone. Spies a targets role at night.

Morgan Earp - Roll of the dice. 1-6 = save, block, redirect, kill, no action, choice of {save, block, redirect, kill}.

Turkey Creek Johnson - blocks a target at night

Texas Jack Vermillion - can choose to kill at night

Sherman McMasters - former "Cowboy" turned Lawman. Traps a player at night. Can pm the host two yes-no questions regarding the trapped players targets during any night up to and including that one.

Josephine Marcus - Actress. Seduces a player at night, protecting them from the shootout. They hear the gunfire and take a "shot" from her window but they will not die. Their role will be revealed if they have the most shots on them. She may not seduce the same player twice.

Marshal White - Save

Cowboys: the Baddies. Have Night Kill and BTSC WinCon - be in majority

Curly Bill - Redirect

Johnny Ringo - Spy. Can chose to RID Recruit McMasters instead, but not if he has already spied him. McMasters will not be given BTSC and will win with baddies.

Ike Clanton - Block. Is a coward. Requires one fewer "shot" to kill. ie if in a tie he loses, if one "shot" short then he gets to be in random lynch.

Billy Clanton - Drunk, but a good shot. May choose to make own "shot" x2 but there is a 1/3 chance "shot" will be x0 instead.

Indy: WinCon - Secret

Billy Breackenridge - Deputy who was friendly to Cowboys. Secret ability.

Saddle up!!

My first game, I asked the host quite a few questions. I felt like I was burdening him or annoying him, but he answered all of them for me and it REALLY helped me out. So if you have ANY questions, don't hesitate to ask any of the experienced players. Most of us are more than willing to help you out!

hmmm...I really have no reason to say this none at all...just make sure that you know how to use BD's pm system. I will pm you a role, if you have BTSC there will be multiple people in that thread...DO NOT post your actions in the main thread...Do it in the pm thread...

Surprisingly, I only had one question for the host in my first game. And that was if I could save myself (I had a saving role). Everyone is ready to help out the new players. Just watch out for those of the opposing faction who actually want to sabotage you. :lol:

Believe me, he knows it. I just taught him how to use programmers tags for color changing because his bar is messed up or something.

@Hir-ka-la...Except for the rare occasions when they do. Like this game. ;p

@ys...Usually goodies don't know who their teammates are, but sometimes, such as in this game, one or two goodies may know the identity of one or two other goodies. For example, Wyatt and Doc have BTSC with each other. They won't know who the rest of the goodies are, though.

It's the same basic idea for indies, where there are more than one. But each game is different and has different rules.

Good luck! Unless, of course, we end up in different factions.

@young scientist: Don't worry about asking too many questions. I've played about 8-9 games in total and hosted one; and I still ask questions and make mistakes ('blunders' would be the more appropriate term, I think....:)). Even after all that, I'm still playing....you seem to be more adjusted than I was at the time, though....:lol:, you'll have fun....:D

Okay....for Mafia: GO GOODIES!!! :D :D :D

(by that....I wanna be a goodie this time!!! :P:D)

Thanks for the support

:lol: I wouldn't rely too much on these guys for support...odds are most of them will have turned on you by the end of the game :P

But you'll have my support in the form of answering questions, to the extent that my duties will allow me...:thumbsup:

Yeah, maurice stop trying to tell him things that will inevitably turn out to be true........................ Uh...

YS, what maurice said is actually pretty accurate. You will most likely be turned on and ripped to shreds by us during the game. You gotta remember first and foremost that this IS a game. Don't take offense to the stuff said in the game. In fact, if you play D & D, it can be very helpful to think like that. Become your character and let them speak. It's good to have a little separation from things. Stuff can get pretty brutal during, but most of us are good at leaving it all in the game.

Taking from Glycs exchange with YS in WC Mafia, mayhaps when we do sign-ups, if a newbie wants to sign up we should say, post the following, reatining all formats and no quotes...

Roses are red

Violets are Blue

Reposting the Voting roster

is an easy thing to do

and if they can do that, they're in...
