Werewolf LXXIX - The Labyrinth (Game Over - Commoners Win!)
 
Mid-day move deadline at 3 PM EST.

Lynch deadline at 10 PM EST.

No lynch is allowed.
Nightfall is not allowed.
Tie conditions known only to me.

CONCEPT:

The Ancients, some of the first beings of this world, have created a massive labyrinth with which to entertain themselves. They have plucked creatures from all over the world to participate in their game.

The Ancients will make up the wolves, and will not know the layout of the labyrinth. However, they will have special powers. They will alternate kills at night. Only creatures in the same section as the Ancient performing the kill can be targeted, and they will be informed of their choices.

The commoners will make up the rest of the characters. You may be a human, a dinosaur, or some sort of exotic creature. Each type of commoner will have certain abilities.

The catch:

Minotaur - Known as the 'Hammer of the Ancients' by the massive weapon he wields and those that created him, the Minotaur has been placed in this labyrinth and considers its defense a holy honor. He starts in the center of the labyrinth and if he runs into any players, there is a strong chance they will immediately die. The Minotaur cannot be lynched or night-killed. The only way it can be killed is if it meets an Ancient in the labyrinth, whence a mighty battle will ensue.

If a commoner finds the center of the labyrinth, the game ends and the commoners win.

LOL - that was my first thought too.

In for sure. Sounds sweet.

Passacaglia 07-30-2008 11:25 AM

Not fair! Every time I tell myself I'm going to take a WW break, another game with an awesome theme comes around. AND someone else claimed David Bowie before I could! Um, can I be a Spider from Mars?

jeheinz72 07-30-2008 11:53 AM

Very bummed I'm not going to be able to be in this one (I'm out of town Weds-Sunday).

Probably for the best, as I should solidify my rules for Werewolf LXXX: Tiddlywinks (you think I jest). So all of you people thinking of taking a break better hope you get killed early in Jackals game, as no one will want to miss Tiddlywinks.

Barkeep49 07-30-2008 11:57 AM

I'm in.

Lathum 07-30-2008 12:54 PM

I'll be on vacation also... this sounds like fun

oliegirl 07-30-2008 01:06 PM

No Lathum and No Ketchup Porn??? And I'm the only girl signed up so far???

At least pass is here to give me shit, harass me and annoy the crap out of me, otherwise it wouldn't seem like a ww game! ;)

path12 07-30-2008 01:23 PM

With haikus, correct?
Because what is Tiddlywinks
Without restrained speech?

Jackal, I regret
that my work again impedes
werewolf involvement.

signups closed, or can I still get in on this game?

hoopsguy 08-02-2008 03:07 PM

Quote:

Signups will run until Sunday, roles out Sunday night or Monday morning, game starts on Monday.


I think you guys are all in, based on the above.

The Jackal 08-02-2008 04:22 PM

Yep people feel free to jump in - we're at 16 now, would love to get to 20 but anything works. Roles won't go out until Monday morning so I'll close signups at Midnight on Sunday so I know how many people are playing.

The Jackal 08-02-2008 04:27 PM

Here's what the schedule will be:

Day 0 - starts Monday when all the roles are out, one movement deadline at 10 PM.
Day 1 - starts Tuesday and begins the regular schedule of 3 PM and 10 PM movements, as well as the first 10 PM lynch.

The Jackal 08-02-2008 04:28 PM

Snagged a limited internet connection, may not be back around until tomorrow night, I'll get the full ruleset up then.

Abe Sargent 08-03-2008 04:39 AM

On

Abe Sargent 08-03-2008 04:40 AM

Or In, as the case may be

DaddyTorgo 08-03-2008 12:29 PM

abe's gonna play?!?! rock on!

The Jackal 08-03-2008 10:29 PM

Well, after being up since 7 AM and with over five hours of driving and the withdrawal of two people (which I understand), I'm going to postpone this till Tuesday, just removing day 0. Hopefully some of the non-weekend crew will want to latch on, but I can probably make it work with 15. I'll be designing it tomorrow and roles will be out by tomorrow evening, so if you still want in just post in the thread.

claphamsa 08-04-2008 07:10 AM

wait... does this mean Im gonna have to do work today? :(

Instead of working you can find more people to play. ;)

I'll play. :)

claphamsa 08-04-2008 11:25 AM

yay

The Jackal 08-04-2008 03:27 PM

I know there's 1-2 more people that want to play. :)

So this game hasn't started yet? Looking forward to reading along.

I was going to edit my Lathum post to correctly spell his user name when I realized it was far too apropos for me to change it. ;)

Get back to work on your tiddlywinks.

The Jackal 08-04-2008 09:26 PM

Hasnt quite started, still working on it/hoping one or two more sign up in the middle of the night ;)

The Jackal 08-05-2008 06:57 AM

Finishing up roles and I imagine theyll be sent out by 9 AM.

claphamsa 08-05-2008 07:48 AM

good news, bad news!

good news is I did all my work yesterday! so I have lots of time to devote to WW, bad news is I wanna live, so Im gonn abe quiet :)

The Jackal 08-05-2008 08:03 AM

Please don't start until I say that all roles are out.

The Jackal 08-05-2008 08:10 AM

Each of you are here for your own various purposes, or perhaps you've simply been thrown into the fire. In the middle of the desert, inbetween two glorious mountains that touch the sky rests your destination. A labyrinth crafted from onyx stone. Walls fifty feet high.

As you step inside of the labyrinth a giant piece of stone slides shut behind you, sealing you within. Press forwards, you must.

A deep and bellowing laugh echoes throughout.

"Why, HELLO, my little fools. Welcome to MY little game. The Ancients thought they were just going to have some fun, hm? Not anymore. You're locked in too, you blathering old idiots. And now you'll have to kill every single last one of these contestants before I let you out. Oh, and as for the rest of you, if by some stroke of impossible luck you manage to find the center, I'll let you out instead."

Silence for a few moments.

"My name, dear Patriarch? Oh, you can just call me the Jester."

The Jackal 08-05-2008 08:11 AM

Silence is interrupted once more.

"Just in case you were curious, I've changed all of your appearances. You'll all look the same to each other. Enjoy!"

Lathum 08-05-2008 08:32 AM

I havent gotte na PM :(

mccollins 08-05-2008 08:33 AM

Note: I have not gotten a PM yet.

But I wanted to go ahead and ask - if I understand it right, everyone except the Minotaur just walked in the same door together - right?

claphamsa 08-05-2008 08:35 AM

I dont think so....

Hmm... I can see how this could be interpreted that we all walked inside at different locations I guess.

mccollins 08-05-2008 08:43 AM

It looks like the Ancients/wolves have to kill all of the contestants/villagers instead of reaching an x:x ratio.

Perhaps if the minotaur is gone then they would win on a normal x:x ratio?

The Jackal 08-05-2008 08:43 AM

Roles are in the process of being sent out, each one takes a personal touch.

You all entered the labyrinth at different locations.

mccollins 08-05-2008 08:45 AM

::Waits nervously for a 'personal touch' from The Jackal::

The answers to this will be made clear as the game progresses, based on what happens. There is no final answer yet.

mccollins 08-05-2008 08:51 AM

Narcizo, I see you reading - why didn't you play??

Narcizo 08-05-2008 08:55 AM

I'm only really free on Mondays and Tuesdays.

I nearly did anyway.

mccollins 08-05-2008 08:56 AM

Ok, got my PM. FWIW, I'm a contestant.

Lathum 08-05-2008 08:56 AM

how does one move about the labarynth?

mccollins 08-05-2008 09:00 AM

I have no indication of my location or surroundings.

I'd guess we have to PM where we want to move?

The Jackal 08-05-2008 09:09 AM

Three left.

The Jackal 08-05-2008 09:10 AM

For your first movement at 3 PM you all get the same choice - forwards. Everyone sees the same thing, a straight, dark passage, and moving down it will take up your first movement phase. After that you will be given choices on where to move for each phase.

The Jackal 08-05-2008 09:16 AM

All roles sent out. Begin! PM me with any questions, or ask in the thread.

Will put this in the first post too -

No lynch is allowed.

:+1:

at least till after work - oh wait, and then i'm going out drinking with a friend, since "she" decided to show back up in my life and I need a couple stiff drinks.

but i'll try to make time to make sure i didn't cast a stupid vote on NTN

PackerFanatic 08-05-2008 09:38 AM

I assume then, since we all have the same D1 move, we don't need to submit one at 3pm.

The Jackal 08-05-2008 09:41 AM

Correct, PF. Everyone will move on their own. But if you have other abilities, you need to PM those in.

mccollins 08-05-2008 09:41 AM

Time for a meeting at work - I'll be back around lunchtime.

claphamsa 08-05-2008 09:44 AM

what happens if 2 people end up in the same square? what if one is a baddie?

I assume if you end upnear the minotaur you die......

"What happens if two people end up in the same place? Guess you'll just have to wait and find out! You trust everyone, right?"

The Jester's voice fades away with laughter.

The Jackal 08-05-2008 09:50 AM

"I've got a peanut here, who wants it?"

claphamsa 08-05-2008 09:51 AM

ill take the peanut!

The Jackal 08-05-2008 09:53 AM

claphamsa makes his intentions clear before anyone else can respond. In a flash of light the Jester appears before him, his form shimmering in the air. Upon his face he wears a mask made of so many colors and items it hurts to think about it.

"Here you go!" He drops the peanut at claphamsa's feet and disappears.

The Jackal 08-05-2008 09:56 AM

claphamsa picks up the peanut and studies it. He seems to decide its fine and pops it in his mouth.

Seconds later he falls to his knees in pain and a stream of walnuts fly out of his pants.

"GET IT?"

The Jester unleashes a chorus of high-pitched laughter and fades away once more.

claphamsa 08-05-2008 09:56 AM

u are a very deistubed individual!

PackerFanatic 08-05-2008 09:57 AM

mccollins 08-05-2008 11:12 AM

Clap, are you feeling alright or are you still a bit nutty?

Barkeep49 08-05-2008 11:23 AM

Do we have rules anywhere beyond what is in post 1? I'm always a little leary of very complex games with no rules.
