View Full Version : Revolution! - In Progress

This may sound similar to Paranoia which I invented, but I don't think it is. It is designed to have a much larger IC factor. Here's the plot:

======================

You live in an idyllic civilisation, a true democracy where all citizens have equal say in all aspects of government. Partly this is due to the fact that all citizens have the same values in life, you all support the same form of government, all have the same philosophies. The reason for this is that when this society was formed as the result of a bloody revolution, everyone who didn't fight on the winning side was put to death. Those that remained all fought for their beliefs, so those beliefs must have been the same.

Now, however, disturbing rumours abound. Of dissatisfied elements, agitating for change. Who knows how much longer this peace will last.

=======================

Rules
1) Everyone is a neutral citizen unless they're not.
2) There are several small groups of agitators. Each have their own agenda.
3) The game is over when there are no agitators remaining or only agitators of one group and they outnumber the citizens.
4) Each day citizens can CHOOSE to lynch someone on the grounds that they are an agitator disturbing the peace. As a democratic society more than 50% of the population must vote to lynch the person for them to be lynched.
5) You can only make one lynch nomination or vote.
6) Each day anyone can declare a revolution. There will be no lynchings if there is at least one revolution.
7) There can be multiple revolutions in one day.
8) Each person can either support a revolution, support the status quo, or stay out of it (NOT RECOMMENDED).
9) When a revolution succeeds, anyone who opposed it or did not assist it is put to death. When a revolution fails, anyone who supported it or did not assist in putting it down is put to death. Hence anyone who changed sides or stayed out of it dies. IC this is to ensure a stable new society where everyone is guaranteed to share the same ideals because they put their life on the line for them. OOC this will weed out inactives. OOC if you notify the GM that you will be inactive for a good reason then IC you will be considered to have been ill at the time and so be spared as having a good excuse for not joining the winning side.
10) Each night, each group of agitators may CHOOSE to assassinate someone they believe is a member of an opposing agitatory group.
11) Each night, an agitator spy may investigate the quarters of one other person to try and determine their role in the game.
12) Citizens win by being alive at the end. They may choose to join a group of agitators by swearing blood oaths (PM CC me) at which point they become an agitator (I will confirm this). Agitators may NOT pretend to join other groups of agitators.
13) Agitators win by being one of the the only group of agitators left.


To aid in this game being more GM autonomous:

A) People who nominate lynching victims (or the victims) may automatically write an appropriate lynching post when the vote hits 50%.

B) Anyone who initiates a successful revolution may, if everyone has made clear their position, or the announced end of day has arrived, post a successful end of revolution including lining up all the losers against a wall and shooting them.

C) Agitators may choose to PM their victim. Victims please be honourable and just post a suitable death scene. Once you get that PM do NOT reveal the sender to anyone in the game.

=============

Please let me know your questions and ideas. The rules are open to debate but remember that the important point is to keep as much of the action IC as possible. It is this that has made the werewolf games a success, while others have fallen by the wayside.

Roles
Citizen - just trying to stay alive
Partynics - Going to bed before midnight should be illegal. Sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll! Yeah!
Peacenics - A quiet life is what we all need. Early to bed and wake to the birdsong - as long as it's not too loud.
Technophiles - We should rearrange society on a technological basis. Stick AI in everything to do everything for us.
Anachronists - We should return to a more rural way of life. Get closer to who we really are.
Spy - Affiliated to a particular group of agitators, the spy can determine the role of one person per night.

We now have 13 people. I am prepared to run this game with 16 people and only 2 groups of agitators. With potentially two kills per night it will be a relatively short game.

I'm also going to modify the rules slightly to add an agitator spy (seer) role.

pingcode20
2007-04-17, 05:22 AM
I'm in. I look forward to being killed by an agitator and writing out a death-scene.

Or, at least, write up being hunted down and killed by revolutionaries.

Alarra

Jontom you may want to get people who signed up early to reconfirm.

Jontom Xire
2007-04-17, 07:07 AM
Good idea. I'll send out a bulk email once we have sixteen people and remove any dropouts. Thanks.

We're at fifteen now.

Also we could have extra roles just to add colour. Mayor, Chief of Police, etc.

How about everyone votes for a mayor who can then appoint such roles as Chief of Police, Executive Event Officer (parties and celebrations and suchlike) to their sycophants?

Ink
2007-04-17, 07:18 AM
Ah ok, I'm dead in most other games, I'll play.

So what would be the motivation for starting a revolution? Do the revoltees get lynched if the revolution is unsuccessful?

Jontom Xire
2007-04-17, 07:31 AM
Dong!

You're right, that rule isn't clear - rewrite coming immediately. Thanks.

The motivation is that you can get rid of a lot of enemies quickly. If you have a lot of secret support or that you can gain more, then start a revolution. You can't change sides or stay out of it, or you get executed. So in theory you get a majority, plan the revolt and then declare it. You get most of your people to delay voting so that your enemies all vote to oppose and then come crashing in with your main support. Bingo, you've wiped out a lot of people in one go. Alternatively you could pretend to support a revolution, and get your allies to do so to, then actually oppose it, thus wiping out your enemies by getting them to revolt.

Originally I was hoping there would be several revolutions per game, but actually the death rate involved makes that prohibitive. We could make it so that only a few people get killed in a revolution. If anyone has any good ideas...

We now have 16 plus one possible except that I think Gezina dropped out of all such games a while back, so I'm not hopeful.

I'm proud and happy to announce that Supagoof will be co-narrating.

More soon.

Jontom Xire
2007-04-19, 02:46 AM
Hi, all.

You should now all have a PM from me, with a CC to Supagoof as co-narrator, telling you what your role is. Opening post coming soon. Because of the number of players, there are only two groups of agitators, not four. The Partynics and the Peacenics. Don't forget that you can recruit citizens to bolster your numbers. However agitators cannot infiltrate other agitator groups. Recruitment will work as follows: The agitators must vote (by PM to me and Supagoof) to accept a player and the player must PM us to say they want to apply. There will then be an initiation ceremony. If the player is in fact an agitator for a different group, they will end the ceremony dead. Otherwise they will learn the identity of all the agitators of the group, and from thereon be considered an agitator.

As the sun rises over the nation of Pucetopia, you awake, yawn, and stretch. You rise from your bed, pushing aside the puce bedcovers and walk to the window, drawing aside the puce curtains. As you do every morning, you marvel at the beautiful vista of puce coloured houses you see.

Ever since the revolution thirty years ago, when the citizens rose up in revolution against the corrupt fascist government of the time, demanding that puce be made the national colour, the country has been at peace. Oh what glorious days. The streets ran red with blood, for a while. Then they were quickly cleaned and painted a delightful puce colour.

But that was a long time ago. Years have passed, and with them has come a new generation. A restless generation. They seem less willing to accept the puce-oriented values of their forebears. Gangs of rebellious teenagers can be seen hanging around on street corners wearing such off-puce colours as purple, or even (shock horror) maroon! Behind closed doors and around pints in the pub, there are whispers of revolution.

As a loyal citizen of Pucetopia, you know it is your duty to root out the agitators behind this talk of revolution and execute them for treason of the most non-puce kind.

Btw I forgot to mention that Day 1 ends 9:00 am Friday GMT (once I've had a chance to settle into work). Don't forget you need 50% votes to lynch someone. Then night will start and the agitators get their chance to get involved.

The sun is high in the sky as the citizens of Pucetopia break off for lunch. There have been a few accusations flying about, but fewer than half of the citizens have been certain enough of another citizen's guilt to suggest they be executed, and those that have can barely agree on who is most likely to be a treasonous revolutionary agitator. There are still a few hours before the end of the day when, by law, accusations leading to a public execution must cease until the following day. Perhaps things will heat up in the afternoon.

(( Because the game is just starting, and because there has been so little posting, I'm going to extend the day until I get home this evening. Don't forget you need 8 votes to execute someone. ))

Puce = Good.
Puce = Good.

Puce = Good.
Puce = Lord Magtok in trouble.
Therefore Puce must not = Good.
But Puce = Good.

Dawn breaks over Pucetopia. Rising to the **** crow you make your way to the window you open the shutters. The crowd below cry "Messiah! All hail Brian the Messiah". You hastily close them again wondering why you're in a Monty Python film. When you open them again the crowd is gone. Must just have been your imagination.

Later that morning you hear the screaming of sirens as the police arrive at the houses of Captain van der Decken and Selrahc. Crowding around the police barriers you can only make out snatches of conversation, but the rumours soon get around and you find out that they were murdered in their sleep. Captain van der Decken was found strangled with some knitting wool while Selrahc was killed with an overdose of LSD absorbed while he slept from a happy smily face sticker stuck to his forehead.

Captain van der Decken, a citizen, was killed by the Peacenics.
Selrahc, a citizen, was killed by the Partynics.

Night will start 8:30 am GMT tomorrow. Get your votes in citizens!

Can I ask Alarra, why you say that I'm suspicious? I still find it odd how people will suddenly turn to point at me as soon as Alarra points at me...just for my colour...

Castaras sighs.

Yes, I find all of you who try to start a bandwagon against me suspicious. But if you want to lynch me, go ahead.

She turns and heads back to her home.

Jontom Xire

As the crowd closes in on Alarra she cries out defiantly, "You fools, you boring fools. If you can't party you may as well be dead! Bring on the music, bring on the drugs and alcohol. Live life before you die!"

Infuriated, the crowd tears Alarra to pieces, sating their bloodlust until nothing is left but a few red stains in the road. These are quickly cleaned up, returning the road to its original perfect puce colour.

Alarra, a Partynic agitator, was killed.

Night begins and will end when I receive all necessary night time PMs, OR just before 9am BST Thursday.

Dawn arrives, the sun spreading its rays to illuminate the puce roads and houses of Pucetopia. A quick headcount shows that Arlanthe is still not risen. As you go to his house you find the front door open. Moving upstairs you find him motionless in bed. Dark stains cover the pillows and inside his ears are a pair of small earphones. You trace the wire and find it connected to a CD discman with the volume set to full. Nearby is a CD case for "Old Skool Rave IV". A warning label declares "Caution - playing this music at full volume may damage your hearing or melt your brains." You realise what the stains on the pillow are - poor Arlanthe's brains.

As you stumble back in disgust, you realise that the room is decorated in matching floral patterns. Cute figurines of shepherds and shepherdesses, dogs and cats, are displayed on every surface. Even more condemning is the "Radio Musak - program for the year" on a side table next to a radio.

Arlanthe, a Peacenik, was assassinated by the Partyniks

Day starts and will end just before 9am GMT tomorrow (Friday).

Why are you trying so hard to lynch me, Hyram? What have I done to raise your suspicions?

Castaras turns to look at him, raising her hand to point at HyramGraff.

It is annoying when I get pointed at for no viable reason. Except for not speaking in puce.

She sighs.

If you insist I will speak in whatever colour you people call puce. Although my player really finds it annoying to do that, and pointless.

What makes you think my point has anything to do with the color of your voice? Others have said that, I have simply accused you of being a puce hater. As you can see I don't talk in puce either, and your point about more than one character is quite right. I simply point in puce, and don't feel anyone else should be forced to. I do however believe you to be an enemy of puce. As such, I point at you.

As the angry mob descends on HyramGraff he stumbles back a pace. "No no, you're making a terrible mistake", he cries.

"Traitor", cries the crowd, "You're not puce enough!"

"Hey", someone yells from the back of the crowd, "If he's not puce enough, I know how to solve that!".

There is a moment of tense silence while the crowd waits for the answer.

"Stick him in a huge vat of puce paint. There's one down at the depot", comes the voice from the back.

The crowd cheers, thinking this a great idea, and drag the poor HyramGraff down to the paint depot where they throw him in a huge vat of puce paint. There is a short delay, a few bubbles rise to the surface, and then nothing. HyramGraff is now thoroughly puce, but also thoroughly dead.

HyramGraff, a citizen, was executed.

Night starts now. Due to weekend activities I am not sure when I will be online to end it, but the absolute latest is when I get into work on Monday morning. Please don't forget to send in your PMs! If you copy SupaGoof he may be able to end it earlier.

Also, my imagination is runing out of suitable assassination techniques. If you are PMing in an assassination I would really appreciate it if you could come up with a clever way of doing it.

The sun rises. Lucky that or it would be dark during the daytime. Puce shades glint from every surface. The people of Pucetopia gather in the square, drawn by a hubbub of rumour. There, all that could be found of the Peaceniks was a small ball of wool, a cute little kitten figure, and a small note.



Let peace reign through pucetopia.
Suddenly someone noticed that Atreyu wasn't present. You dash to his Llama stall where you find him dead, strangled with speaker wire, his corpse decorated with all the latest raver fashions. There is a note pinned to the side of the stall:



Rest in peace now, you party pooper!

Atreyu, a Peacenik agitator, was killed by the Partynik agitators.

Day will end, and night begin, obviously, at 9am GMT on Monday morning. Enjoy the weekend.

The revolutionaries storm through the Puce coloured streets, killing all who refuse to join the revolution. The gutters run red with blood until at the end of a long hard day, the battle is won. Then the revolutionaries pull out the buckets and mops to make their streets puce once more, while Gnome Barbarian gives stirring speeches about how brave everyone was.

While counting the bodies you notice that Inky13112 was amongst those supported the existing regime. Swept aside by the revolutionary forces, his broken body lies forlornly in the street.

Now a new regime must be instated. Gnome Barbarian, the hero of the revolution, is picked as the leader of the new state, amidst calls and pleas from the crowd to make the new Pucetopia a safer place, to eradicate these vicious revolutionary agitators ((oh the irony is killing me :)) to make good on the promises he made in his revolutionary speech.

Inky13112, a citizen, was killed.

Outside the Hero of the Revolution's house, a small crowd has gathered. calling joyfully for Gnome Barbarian to arise, awake, and join them. Answer came there none. Finally troubled, the crowd tries the door - it is unlocked. A growing sense of foreboding rises in you as you make your way upstairs. There, murdered in his bed, lies your beloved leader, slaughtered as he slept by the hated partynic agitators.

As the day draws to a close, so does the heated argument between Castaras and Ink, each of whom bitterly accuses the other of undermining the fabric of the Pucetopian society you live in. While many of the bystanders join one side of the other, there is not enough of a quorum by the laws to execute either. You all head home to your houses. The air is fraught with bad feeling and fear. Will you live until tomorrow? Will the revolutionaries amongst you kill again tonight?

After what seems an extraordinarily short night, you rise to the sound of loud music coming from somewhere. On investigating you find it's coming from Castaras' house. You go in to find Castaras house wrecked, her body lying motionless on the floor. As you look closer you see that she's lying on a speaker. The deep bass beat coming from it has turned her insides to jelly, killing her completely.

Castaras, a Peacenik agitator was assassinated by the Partynics


Day starts and will end at 9am GMT Friday.


((I'd just like to make a quick rules clarification. If a revolution is declared in the name of one of the agitator factions (but not necessarily by an actual agitator), and that revolution succeeds, then the game is over and everyone left alive has won except for opposing agitators. This will make quite a good way to get a quick ending to a game, especially since opposing agitators will have to oppose the revolution or lose. It also make it more important to have a good popularity base amongst the citizens. This rule may need tweaking if we play a game and it doesn't work out so well.))

Pingcode shakes his head, and posts (for the moment) without colour, on account of lack of time.

"Another senseless murder. However, I am beginning to see a pattern here - In the early days of these terrible deeds, Arlanthe led a successful bandwagon against Alarra, who turned out to be one of the vicious, hated partyniks." Pingcode spits on the ground as he says the name. "The next morning, Arlanthe was dead, killed in revenge. Yesterday, Castaras pointed at Ink, and today, she is dead."

He looks at Ink with accusing eyes.

"I believe that she stumbled upon one of the vicious partyniks, may-they-burn-in-hell, in our midst."

*Points at Ink

Ink
2007-05-03, 10:26 PM
"Sir, I have been nothing but an upright and responsible citizen of Pucetopia and I have helped bring several agitators to justice. That you are so eager to have me lynched for doing my civic duty is incredibly suspicious. Castaras deserved to die. She was a vile and insidious Peacenik. As was Arlanthe. The fact that you even suggest that their deaths were anything other than a blessing makes you an enemy of puce in my eyes."

* Ink points at pingcode

2007-05-04, 02:27 AM
"Hardly. That they were vile peaceniks has no bearing on your guilt - The enemies of puce are at war, and to discount the actions of their members would be foolishness. They deserved death, true, but only a fool ignores the motivations of his enemies."

Pingcode points dramatically at Ink.

"Indeed, you claim you have helped 'several agitators' being brought to justice, but I can count only Alarra on your record, for you sacrificed your fellow partynik to hide your own guilt. You slew Honest Selrahc, whose only crime was being in the wrong place at the wrong time. You slew Poor HyramGraff, who was guilty merely of gaining your ire. You slew Gnome Barbarian, may-his-soul-rest-in-peace, for no more than trying to restore order to the people of Pucetopia!"

His voice suddenly goes soft and sullen.

"Your crimes cannot be forgiven. So, I say, to the gallows with you, and may you find your peace with Puce in the afterlife."

Jontom Xire
2007-05-04, 05:30 AM
The citizens of Pucetopia sleep so soundly that it seems but mere moments since they laid their heads down to rest. Indeed the sun is barely up and the streets are in shadow - except outside DarkCorax's house where a strange green glow emanates from the windows.

You hurry over to DarkCorax's house where you find the door open and go inside. There you find DarkCorax dead, a sickly green glow emananting from his mouth and broken glowsticks everywhere. It appears that the glowsticks were laced with cyanide and then the contents forced downt he unfortunate victim's mouth.

DarkCorax, a citizen, was assassinated by the Partynics.

Day starts and will end in 24 hours or sooner if a lynch victim is found.

Three votes are needed for a lynch. I'm guessing, but it looks like the Partynics are heading down the list of players alphabetically. Is DLD even reading this thread any more?

"Indeed, if you wanted to argue that somebody was keeping a low profile, you would be better off trying to argue that DarkLightDragon or Warpfire777 are agitators. Yesterday, only the two of us were awake. This can be interpreted as just as suspicious for us as it is for them. I have made my case against you, and I submit it again, in the hope of my fellow pucetopians having open minds and ears to listen."

Ink
2007-05-04, 08:16 PM
Ink looks over at pingcode.

"I said that Helgraf has been keeping a low profile throughout this bloody chain of events, and not just yesterday. The same may be said of Warpfire or DarkLightDragon, but those two are usually quiet anyway."

"And sir, if I were a Partynik, be assured that I'd have killed you! For the moment I don't think you're a puce hater but you're a terrible neighbour! Keep your lousy pets on your own lawn!!"

Ink goes inside his house and slams the door.

Helgraf
2007-05-05, 12:33 AM
Simple enough reason for why I keep quiet. When I speak, I get killed. Check my track record -outside of Mafia III, I've gotten lynched or murdered within 2 nights every time I play a game vocally. And I might point out for the record that again - with the exception of Mafia III - I've been a villager type in every single one of those games. So yeah, I tend to keep my yap shut outside of mafia where the story interests me enough to post in spite of myself.

However, since you insist on maligning my good character with these accusations, I feel little good will in keeping you on; and thusly, *Helgraf points at Ink*

A much diminished citizenry close in on Ink. They then drag him kicking and screaming to the official hangmans platform only to find a lack of noose. Angered the crowd tear the platform to pieces and use the planks and suchlike to beat Ink to death.

Ink, a citizen, was lynched.

In the middle of the night, everybody is awoken by a loud techno thumping sound, coming from the direction of Gnome Barbarian's former home.

On the roof, flanked by a pair of gigantic speakers, a figure is silhouetted against an array of strobe lights, whirling a couple of glowsticks.

"And now, the moment you've all been waiting for!"

The music speeds up and the glowsticks whirl even faster, until suddenly the music is drowned out by an awesome roar. Rising from the fallen hero of the revolution's swimming pool was Godzilla, wearing an enormous red-and-white striped top hat reminiscent of a certain Dr. Seuss character.

Spotlights placed strategically on the ground lit up the atomic lizard, and the figure staring down at the crowd with almost insane eyes.

"I bring you RAVEZILLA!" he cackles, his upper face obscured by an oversized stripy top hat with a single eyehole cut out.

"Let the party begin!"

As the words echo over Pucetopia, Ravezilla opens its mouth and fires a bright blue atomic beam, cutting swaths of destruction across the once idyllic Pucetopia and burning everything the pucetopians' forefathers paid in blood and tears for.

The Partynic agitators have won. If the remaining citizens don't fall in line with the new administration, one of them will be killed tonight and then the agitators will have a majority for the revolution tomorrow.

I'd just like to say how much fun this game was. On night 1 pingcode20 picked Castaras, the Peacenic spy, as his scry target only to be over-ruled by the rest of his team who picked the person that the Peacenic's chose to kill.

A little later, and apparently at random, the Partynics chose to scry one Peacenic and kill one of the other two.

A couple of nights later Castaras chose to scry GB, the same night that the Partynics killed him, thus returning the favour from night one.

I know we didn't have many players, but there were so many coincidences/lucky guesses it made this game incredibly amusing to run.

Please all sign up to Mk II - I think we should have a few more players so maybe could have a third group of agitators.

"Victory is ours!"

Good game, everybody.

Actually, the reason Arlanthe got killed off was because he went about to (I think) myself, Warpfire and GB, at the least, and tried to convince us to vote against Alarra.

In doing so, Arlanthe was revealed as a Peacenik, so we just killed him straight off the bat after Alarra became dead.

...

I think the big mistake of the Peaceniks was moving as a group so quickly. Once Arlanthe revealed himself, Atreyu was the logical next choice.

In hindsight, Castaras would have been second if Atreyu had voted third. Then the Peaceniks would be dead in three nights.

Good game! The Partynics definitely deserved the win. I had a lot of fun!

Well, I had Pingcode figured as a Partynic after he didn't come through on his end of the deal, promising to vote against Alarra but then not :) I knew sacrificing myself by revealing my identity would get Alarra killed (which it did), because we knew she was a Partynik due to day 1 spying. I had some citizens in my bloc. I knew as a regular agitator I would be at least an equal trade for another agitator, and she might have been the spy. So I don't regret dying to kill Alarra (sorry Alarra :) )

So I disagree, Mr. Pingcode, that my mistake was revealing my identity because I still don't regret that trade. Plus I know Alarra was playing the back alley too, which gave me the support I needed :) (Helgraf made the short list after my death as well.)

The Peaceniks would have had an equal fighting chance if spying had been performed every night, and assassinations had been performed every night with the same diligence as the Partyniks. Alas, I only knew of two successful spy attempts (day one- Alarra, then GB who I already knew was neutral, but I digress) and only one assassination (day one) by my team.

So of course inactivity defeats the purpose of having a spy.

Pingcode did a good job- and obviously he kept track of how everyone voted, so kudos to you! Had the Peacenik spy noted early on HyramGraff voted against Alarra (early in the vote- which is key), then the round that the Peacenik spy accused HyramGraff wouldn't have been wasted on a citizen.

In short the Partyniks:

1) spied every round (we didn't)
2) the Partyniks assasinated every round (we only did once)
3) and the Partynik spy obviously carefully used the voting records to implicate people (we certainly did not)

So for your diligence and cunning, I applaud your well deserved win!
