    Default Hot Potato II: Game started

    Hi, all.

    This is a silly game just for a bit of fun. Same as before with a couple of new potatoes and some rules changes. The game will start after Easter. I need at least 10 players but if I get a few more than that it's ok.

    Every player starts off with a hot potato that has a certain property:

    Spoiler
    Show

    Hot Potato of Corruption: Created by The Corrupter, they corrupt the recipient before reverting to their usual state. They do not have their usual effect for the recipient unless that is The Purifier. See below for more details.

    Hot Potato of Purification: Created by The Purifier, they purify the recipient before reverting to their usual state. They do not have their usual effect for the recipient unless that is The Corrupter. See below for more details.

    Hot Potato of Death: When passed on whoever was holding this hot potato dies. The only exception is night 1 when the original holder passes the hot potato on.

    Hot Potato of Life: Protects the holder from the effects of the Hot Potato of Death.

    Hot Potato of Mob Calming: If you are holding this potato during the day phase, you are immune from lynch.

    Hot Potato of Testing: If you are given this hot potato, your status as corrupted or pure becomes publically known. The Corruptor is shown only as corrupted, and the Purifier is shown only as pure. If you are simultaneously given a Hot Potato of Corruption or a Hot Potato of Purification then the result returned will be that before being corrupted or purified.

    Hot Potato of Vision: When you pass this hot potato on, the nature of the person you pass it to becomes known to you, determined in the same way as for the Hot Potato of Testing.

    Hot Potato of Voiding: When you pass this hot potato on, or are holding it, none of the other hot potatoes operate at all. In addition The Corrupter and The Purifier cannot turn hot potatoes into corruption and purification potatoes.

    Hot Potato of Chaos: Each time it is passed on it assumes the powers of another type of potato.

    Hot Potato of Mutually Assured Destruction: If the player holding this potato is lynched the potato explodes killing one person who voted for the lynchee.

    Hot Potato of Soul Synchronism: There are two of these. If a person holding one of these dies, the person holding the other dies too. This potato's effect always works regardless of Hot Potatoes of Voiding or being transformed into a Hot Potato of Corruption or Purification. A Hot Potato of Chaos cannot take on this form.

    Hot Potato of Theatrics: These hot potatoes have a "flavour", E.g. martyred heroics, soul sworn vengeance, unrequited love, etc. etc.. If whoever holds the potato indulges in the appropriate type of theatrics they get a bonus effect of some sort at the narrators discretion.


    There may be none, one, or more of each type of hot potato during the game. If the number of hot potatoes in the game becomes too low due to someone who is holding a lot dying, then the narrator may inject new hot potatoes. New hot potatoes may also be added to the game for gits and shiggles at the discretion (or lack of) of the narrator.

    Hot potatoes MUST be passed along every night phase. If a player fails to pass along the hot potato then they will die and the hot potato they were holding will be lost. The narrator reserves the right to randomly reassign any, all, or none of the hot potatoes lost in this manner, so don't try and be noble if holding onto the Hot Potato of Death because the narrator might replace it with two Hot Potatoes of Death just to spite you.

    If a player is going to be away, PM the narrator with the next passing on of each of your hot potatoes, and post very publically in thread that you will be away. Anyone trying to pass a potato to a player who is away will have it bounce and will die. Muhahaha!! Any player trying to pretend to be away for tactical reasons will be found guilty of cheating and publically humiliated in the main structured games thread and possibly banned or whatever the punishment for cheating is these days.

    Players can hold more than one hot potato.

    If a hot potato is passed to a player and the player dies that night then the hot potato is lost. Any hot potatoes held by a lynched player are lost.

    The game has two power roles: The Corrupter (bad guy) and the Purifier (good guy) and everyone else is a villager.

    When the corrupter passes on a hot potato it temporarily changes its nature to become a hot potato of corruption. The person it is passed to becomes corrupted. The Corrupter and his minions win when everyone is corrupted and The Purifier is dead. The Purifier is immune to being corrupted. The hot potato reverts to its natural state when next passed on.

    Similarly any hot potato passed on by the Purifier temporarily becomes a purification potato. It will purify any corrupted villager turning them into a normal villager. The Purifier and normal villagers win when everyone is purified and The Corrupter is dead. The Corrupter is immune to being purified. The hot potato then reverts to it's natural state.

    Example:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Night 2, The Corrupter passes the Hot Potato of Death (HPoD) to Anne. Anne becomes corrupted.
    Night 3, Anne passes the HPoD to Bob. The Purifier passes the Hot Potato of Life (HPoL) to Bob. Anne will not die as the HPoD was in effect a Hot Potato of Corruption.
    Night 4, Bob passes the HPoD and the HPoL to Charles. Bob then dies because the HPoL was in effect a Hot Potato of Purification.
    Night 5, Charles will not die as long as he passes both Hot Potatoes onwards as the HPoL cancels out the effect of the HPoD.


    If someone receives both a purification and corruption hot potato then the effects cancel out and the player is neither purified nor corrupted and remains unchanged.

    Always play your current status as fully as you can. To do otherwise is cheating. So if as a villager you find out who The Purifier is and then get corrupted, you MUST do whatever you can to get The Purifier killed, i.e. publically announce their identity. If you subsequently get purified you must then try to protect the Purifier however you can.

    Additional rules:
    Spoiler
    Show

    The game will start with a night phase.
    Day and night phases will be 48 hours long but may end early if appropriate.
    There will be 50% corrupted and 50% pure at the start of the game.


    Players: 16

    We have ten, but there is realistically no way I can start the game before Tuesday. Thanks for signing up so quickly. It's reassuring from a support point of view.

    I would appreciate a co-narrator. There's a lot of PMs to be sent.

    Game starts!

    It's been a great evening. Wine, beer, a bonfire on the beach. As you all pull your foil wrapped potatoes from the ashes your mouth waters in anticipation of the succulent flesh within, smothered with hot melting butter. However, when you unwrap your potatoes you find that they have...changed.

    You take them home with you. Your dreams that night are filled with vivid dreams and you wake up with an idea of the special properties possessed by your potatoes - and also the danger! Hold onto a hot potato too long and you will die!!! You are also made aware of the presence of the sinister Corrupter. An being who seeks to warp the world to his own corrupted design.

    Dawn will arrive soon. You are a group of friends joined by a common experience, a common fate, a common fear. Can you find The Corrupter amongst you and rid yourselves of his corruption?

    Spoiler

    This is now the night phase. Please tell me who you wish to pass your potatoes to.

    ??

    Seemed like a good idea at the time. Still does, to me.

    Deadline for PMs will be midday UK time Thursday. But if I get them all early I will end night early and we all get to play more.
