The Mad King
« on: April 16, 2012, 04:30:19 AM »



Chaos reigns in the Kingdom of Ysteria.  The Mad King has been making wild decrees and committing acts of violence against his people, and the people have risen up to stop him.

As the fighting rages, the core of the rebellion has attempted to remain anonymous, in an effort to control things from the shadows.  However, this stress on secrecy has allowed the King's spies and guardians to infiltrate the rebellion.  It is now a pivotal moment in the war.

--

There are 14 players at the start of the game:

The Mad King
Althalos
Borin
Brom
Carac
Fendrel
Forthwind
Lyonel
Merek
Mormont
Sadon
Terrowin
Tybalt
Ulric

It is Night 0.  The Scout and the Scoundrel get to take seer-actions tonight; all others remain asleep until Day 1.

Save your breath until Day 1 begins, please; I'm gonna ask everybody to check in then.

You should be receiving your account name and password by PM.  Don't post if you haven't received it, PM me instead.

Your role PM has already been sent to your game account.

Ground Rules:

1. No talking during the Night phase.  Once the Day phase ends, you may only communicate by PM.

2. I need to receive a copy of all PM conversations.

3. No talking about the game outside of your given game account.  The game is supposed to be anonymous; you may not discuss the game on IRC, because you're not anonymous there.

3a. Similarly, please don't post in other topics using your game account.  (An easy way to keep from doing this is to log into your account with private browsing/incognito mode.)

4. Bold your votes, and if you're retracting your vote, bold the word retract too.

5. You can set whatever avatar you want for your game account, but I reserve the right to change or remove it if it's really big or otherwise stupid.  I'd like to keep the game sort of medievally-themed, y'know.

I bet there are other ground rules but I can't fuckin think of them.

Anyway, people who need to send me a Night 0 action, do so.  Day 1 will begin then.

In the meantime: Please read the rules!  Even if you've already read them, just go over 'em again!  It won't kill you!

And don't post in this topic in anything but your game account!

The PMs have been sent, so let me know if you can't get into your account.

EDIT:

Here's my voting rules, which I shoulda put up earlier.

The Mad King can't vote, and arrested players cannot vote, so the voting population and the total number of players are slightly different.

The base time limit for the Day phase is 48 hours.  Declaring Ye Olde Hammertyme extends the day by 24 hours.

If, at any point during the Day phase, a person reaches more than 1/2 of the eligible population voting for him, the day ends immediately (whether I'm around or not) and that person is lynched.

You cannot be lynched unless at least 1/3 of the voting population has voted for you.  So, if the time limit is reached, and nobody has at least 1/3 of the population voting for him, or two or more people are tied for the most votes, the game goes into Sudden Death.

Sudden Death Rules:

As soon as someone has 1/3 (rounded up) of the eligible population voting for him, and that person is not tied with anyone for the most votes, that person is lynched and the day ends immediately.

Sudden Death can be averted by a declaration of Hammertyme.  If Hammertyme is declared while the game is in Sudden Death, then the game is extended by 24 hours from the time of the declaration.  (Otherwise, Hammertyme tacks 24 hours onto the end of the normal 48-hour deadline.)

As THE MAD KING, I feel that perhaps everyone should have some of this UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE.

Perhaps you think your KING is not MAD enough? Then perhaps you haven't seen my plans to switch our kingdom to highly renewable, efficient energy sources?!?!

Is there a little too much SANITY in your kingdom? Well try this on for size: THE MAD KING declares there will be equal marriage rights for all citizens!

Day 1 has begun.

Hide your throats and bold your votes.

There are 14 players who managed to survive Night 0:

The Mad King
Althalos
Borin
Brom
Carac
Fendrel
Forthwind
Lyonel
Merek
Mormont
Sadon
Terrowin
Tybalt
Ulric

It takes 7 votes to lynch somebody, because the Mad King cannot vote.

Nobody can die until every player has checked in.

It is better to die for the King than to live for yourself!

"...better to die for the King than to live for yourself?" These sound like the words of a man who clearly misunderstands the danger the King's madness represents! The realm itself is in peril!

This King bostesth that he knoweth what the Lord desires for us all.

He quod, "If ye not knoweth my rule, then to helle ye shalt be ravyshed!"

I plead, unto this devil monarch we speak, "No more!"
