Werewolf XXIII - Lost - Game Over! Survivors win!



http://abc.go.com/fsp/index.html?channel=Lost

Click this link. Do it.

A man awakes in a jungle. He is bruised and bloody, and doesn't know where he is. A yellow lab watches him from the trees, then suddenly runs off. He forces himself up and winces in pain, leaning against a tree. He checks his jacket pocket and finds a small bottle of vodka. Recognition of where he is begins to float across his face. He winces back the pain and begins to run through the trees, reaching a beautiful beach.

He hears sounds people screaming. He wanders around a bend and finds what has brought him here a plane crash, survivors in shock. A man trapped beneath wreckage. A woman not breathing. A pregnant woman screaming for help. He runs to help those he can, and rallies the others to help him. One of these strangers asks his name: "Jack."

Back at the crash site, the survivors do their best to make themselves comfortable. Sayid introduces himself to Charlie, and gets Charlie to help build a bonfire, for the rescuers to see. Hurley gathers together the food from the plane, and distributes it amongst the survivors. The group hears a sound from inside the trees a loud, terrifying, monstrous howl that goes on and on. The tops of the trees shake, and eventually whatever is making the sound goes away, leaving the survivors marooned, exhausted and now terrified.

The first attack happens at night, when they awake to a brutal struggle coming from the jungle near their camp. The survivors bury their dead, forage for food and water and fashion weapons as defense. But it does little to help them, because a second attack comes close on the heels of the first and this time, they take the children.

(altered from hoopsguy's last game)
4.) Looking for at least 15 players, and would like to have more.
8.) It will be a hidden roles game - no roles are published initially.
15.) Looking to begin the game on Monday, February 13th. I can start earlier if we have a lot of signups early on.
16.) I'll planning to adopt a 12/12 day/night cycle but I'm willing to alter this to meet the requests of the players.
23.) The game isn't werewolves versus villagers per se, but more of the television show Lost.
42.) Be prepared.

How important is it to be familiar with the TV show?

I'm going to be out of town until Monday afternoon/evening, so it's probably best to pass this one -- looks like a fun one though! Ardent, maybe you can put me down for an alternate?

I'd think it would be safe to say you can play without being familiar with the show.

Path, I'll put you down as an alternate, though I doubt we'll start before Monday right now.

I haven't played in a long time, nor have I tried one of the newer, more elaborate games, but I'd like to give it a shot.

Having seen the rule set to this game, I would say that despite having no knowledge of Lost, Ardent has done a very good job of explaining the characters and so I would not worry about lack of knowledge about the TV show.

Sounds like a ton of fun, but I think I'm going to take a game off. I will be following along since Lost is my 2nd favorite show on TV behind 24.

That was the last one I played in.

Good to see there are no hard feelings.

As much as I followed some of the games, I didn't realize there had been that many. I remember very well the last 3 but what happened in 15-18?

Werewolf 15 - cowboy WW, game dumped due to bandit inactivity.

16 "Time Traveler" by SnDlvs - one of two most complex rule sets (in my opinion), didn't have enough time to really get into it as an observer before it was over

16 "Return of the Wolves" by Neon_Chaos - dueling #16 game. Was this first game involving lovers? Dubb played big role in villager win after they lost seer and lovers in same night.

17 "To Crown a King" by Barkeep49 - three factions, assassins mixed in with nobles

18 "Return to the Forest" by RPI-Fan - pretty straight-forward WW game, Dubb as cultist just p3wnd the villagers.

I have to echo Saldana's thoughts on people stealing things...like you stealing my Role Reveal Master title (self-proclaimed, yes...but master none-the-less )

I assure you that it isn't anything to be worried about. I think half my werewolf posts ever are typo ridden to the point where I just can't help but laugh when I go back and read them. And if it makes you feel any better do a google search for "scarcasm"

You aren't alone.

The first attack happens at night, when you awake to a brutal struggle coming from the jungle near their camp. The survivors bury their dead, forage for food and water and fashion weapons as defense. But it does little to help them, because a second attack comes close on the heels of the first and this time, they take the children.

Among the dead are people you found incredibly helpful. Ardent Enthusiast. Barkeep49. Coffee Warlord. Neon_Chaos.

You each vow to find those that are killing you off as if for sport. It may not help you get off the island, but at least it will afford you some peace of mind. Maybe it will provide an answer as to why you are here and how you can get off the island.

Day 1 has started.
