    Default Spytrap V: The spy who scalped me!

    Welcome to the fifth itteration of Spytrap, the (somewhat) popular version of the WW. This time, there are few changes (most of them cosmetic, really), so be sure to read the rules before joining. This goes double for the new players.

    Indians/wolves:

    Spoiler
    Show
    Crazy Horse – double agent. Thanks to his charisma and persuasive nature, Crazy Horse has been able to convince the foolish pale faces that he is one of their own. During the day, he can send a message to any player via the narrator, using a combination of smoke signals and good ol' pen and paper. Only the other indians and the decrypter will be able to read this message, the other players will only see what appears to be a mix of random letters and numbers. Or a lot of smoke, as the case may be.

    Geronimo – devil. You're able to contact the spirits of your ancestors once per night and they give you the insight the others lack. Of course, fire water helps too... Once per night, you can scry a player, gaining their role at 100% accuracy. You get to vote once per night for a person you want to scalp (kill) and the person with most votes dies. In case of a tie, the person to receive those votes first dies.

    Indians – wolf. The bread and butter of an army, you guys are the cannon fodder for the chief when things turn ugly. You get to vote once per night for a person you want to scalp (kill) and the person with most votes dies. In case of a tie, the person to receive those votes first dies. In case the night kill would kill an indian, all the players who voted for him will be put in contact instead.


    The army and associated jokers:

    Spoiler
    Show
    General Custer – alpha agent. The leader of troops, he knows the names of all other agents from the start, but not their roles. He knows one of them is Crazy Horse in disguise, but doesn't know which one. In addition, you can prevent any player from being lynched, once per day. This will reveal your role to all other players.

    Trigger happy cowboy – baner. The yahoo and the drunkard with big guns and lot of ammunition. You may be good only for making ruckus and generally making an ass of yourself, but Lady Luck favors the bold and the stupid. In this case, she favors the stupid. You can protect one player during the night from being killed.

    Company medic – seer. Serving under general Custer has many drawbacks (not the least of which is that gun toting yokel) and few highlights, but among those, being a legitimised butcher is certainly the best one. Since the army paycheck is a lousy one indeed, you're looking for some extra cash. You do this by cutting out the organs of the dead and selling them to... well, we don't really care. Since you do this at night, you might notice a thing or two that escapes the people that are usually sleeping at the time.

    Windtalker – decrypter. A Navajo indian, you know all there is to know about cyphers and then some. You can decrypt any secret message sent by Crazy Horse.

    Military personel - You're the spoiled first borns of the daddy general. You got to your position more because daddy managed to pull some strings, rather than on account of actually being, you know... competent! Be it as it may, this entitles you to position of power and you are privy to some secrets hidden to ordinary mooks. Whether you'll use this to screw everything up or just make an idiot of yourself remains to be seen.

    Soldier – villager. You're one of the many, probably destined to die horrible and, sometimes, entertaining way. Your only power is paranoia and in a pinch, that will work just fine. During the day, you point at whoever you think needs to be lynched.


    Other rules:

    Spoiler
    Show
    Day last 48 hours, night 24 hours. If you don't use your action by the time the narrator updates the game, you've lost it. There will be no reminders, other than the one at the end of the day phase.
    This game does not have Helgraf rule of interference in effect.
    The name of the roles and everything in the narration (save for the Summary) is there only for the flavor. The narrator reserves the right to be wacky, crazy and sometimes insane.
    As per Spytrap tradition, Crazy Horse can be one of the Military personel (that is, a regular agent) or one of the power roles (that is, seer, baner or decrypter). This will be decided randomly when the roles will be assigned to the players.
    For the game purposes, some of the roles will be given a code name, as it is the tradition of Spytrap. The roles that will receive a code name are the following: Crazy Horse, general Custer, trigger happy cowboy, company medic, military personel and windtalker.
    Every side (indians and agents) will also receive a secret code, with which they will be able to identify each other. This code will be different for each side, but Crazy Horse will have both secret codes, since he is double agent. It is left up to every single agent and/or indian to find a creative ways to use the code and find his/her friends.


    Recruitment last until February 14th, game starts on roughly February 15th, depending on time zone. Autolynches will be accepted for another week (real life time) after the game starts. After that you'll have to wait for me to pick up my lazy ass and start another itteration of the game, which might take some time, so join up now! If you have any questions, be sure to ask them while the recruitment last or send me a PM. I and everybody else will be happy to answer to those questions, if we only can.

    Additionally, if you are new player, it is advised you read through some of the older Spytrap games, since this are anything but regular. Those can be found in the WW Central, under Archive.

    Yeah, I figured something like that might arise. But, to be honest, I don't have the idea which is the right way to portray them. Can I ask how you solved that particular problem?

    Just gave a warning about it at the start of the game, and made sure to let everyone know that it was OLD SPAGETTI WESTERN MOVIE REFERENCES and in no way REFLECTED THE OPINIONS OR THOUGHTS OF THE NARRATOR.

    And if anyone objected, changes were immediately made. Though for story telling part, I didn't bring Indians into it much, since I used Bandits and Outlaws as the wolf teams. You specifically have Indians as the wolves, which is going to be more precarious.

    Actually, being an Austrian I wasn't very comfortable with the WWII theme, either.
    I say write what you want and if someone objects than change it. It's a cultural task, and you can't know everything about american culture (although we europeans always mock about the lack of it )

    Le Spytrap? Count me in.

    It's certainly a bit of a genre shift, but the western theme is a good one, so I don't mind. Of course, if it were in true spaghetti western fashion, all the Indians would be replaced with Mexicans instead. And when I say 'Mexicans' I really just mean 'Spanish actors pretending to be Mexican'.
