Frequently Asked Questions:

(Moved to its own thread because the roles and rules thread is fucking long enough.)

Q: If the Weretiger wins, does everyone else lose?
A: Yes.

Q: If The Vampires and the Wolves target the same person during the night, what happens? Does the target become some kind of monster wolf/vampire hybrid?
A: Nope. Night Priority is Wolves > Vampires > Other Kills > Other effects. Meaning, the Wolves act first, so the vampires would arrive the same night to find only a dead corpse, wasting their turn. Or, if the wolves used that night to TURN their target, and the vampires did the same, bad luck for Dracula, because he just bit into a wolf, which kills him. (And the newly minted wolf.)

Q: Can I bid on two items at once?
A: Yes. But you'll have to split your money. You can't bid all your money on both items, hoping to win at least one if you're outbid on another.

Q: If I scry a player who dies that same night, do I get to rescry?
A: No. Although normally this is impossible during a *real* game of wolf, I have decided that making it possible for seer-types to waste their turn is good for game balance.

Q: Wait. I'm confused. What roles overlap, and which can't?

Q: So, who can the Weretiger be?
A: Literally, anyone. It is the last role I roll, and overlaps with EVERYTHING. The only exception was the village idiot, but that doesn't exist anymore. So it's entirely possible for the Weretiger to be either Dracula or just a plain innocent with no other powers.

Q: If I'm a seer type, and I have an item that also is used for scrying, can I do two scries in the same night?
A: Yep.

Q: When can I bid on the AH?
A: The AH is open during the day and the following night. Once I update, the items for sale are gone, so get your bid in before that.

Q: If I lose the bid on my item, do I lose my gold, too?
A: No. I will only send you a PM if you win the item. If you receive no PM, assume you lost the bid and your money was returned.

Q: What happens if there is a tie in the bids for an item?
A: I roll it off.

Q: Can I trade an item to a team mate/another player?
A: No. However, thief abilities might be able to set up a trade intentionally.

Q: If I have the Broken Win Button and a team mate has the Repair Bot, do we get the role list?
A: These items have been removed.

Q: How does the goddamn foolscry work exactly, again?
A: I got this question a LOT in previous games. Luckily, there is no fool in this iteration, so don't worry about it.

Q: Does the Village Idiot winning make everyone else lose?
A: No. Anyway, there is no idiot anymore, so don't worry about it.

Q: Can I send PMs to my team mates/people I have scried and wish to share information with?
A: Sure. Just make sure you include me in any and all Private Messaging. Also, be aware that information sharing can be very, very dangerous, especially if you're the Seer. All it takes is one of your circle being turned to drop the entire group into Vampire hands.

Q: Help! I don't know how much gold I have!
A: I keep track of everyone's current gold. If you're curious, just ask me in PM and I'll tell you. If you want to keep track yourself, you start with 10 and gain 2 per day, unless your role/items dictate otherwise.

Q: If I am robbed, will I know it/who did it?
A: You'll know you were robbed. Who did it, however, will remain a mystery.

Q: So does the Sheriff's night protection extend to other effects? Like, if I'm locked up, can I still be robbed/scried, or bid on the AH?
A: I removed the sheriff. He was gay and I hated him.

Q: How many wolves and vampires are in the game?
A: It varies depending on the total number of players. However, You can safely bet on about 1/3 of the players being evil at the start. This may seem high to you, but remember that the Wolves and Vampires also fight each other, and frequently use their kills and powers likewise.

A: Players tend to react very strongly to whatever happened in the previous game. If the Vampire team won, Vampires need nerfs. If the wolf team lost badly, they need buffs. I try to balance between giving the players what they want and also running as balanced a game as I can possibly can. Sometimes, the latter will override the former when you and I differ in opinion on what is balanced and what is not. Just try to remember that I see everything that goes on behind the scenes, so I probably have a better idea than you.

Do the wolvepires start knowing who is on their team?

Does the head honcho on either side know that information as well?

Uh, yeah. The wolves all know each other, and same for the vamps. The vamps don't know who the wolves are though, and vice versa.

Why wouldn't the members of any evil faction not all know each other, SCD? If only the leaders knew, wouldn't their first order of business be to tell their underlings who their friends are?
...but is it art?
