    Default Shape-shifters

    Welcome to Shape-shifters! This is my first game here; I hope you all enjoy it. Without further ado:

    THE RULES:

    All players will vote in red as normal even if their vote is voided; it just doesn't count toward the final tally. Helgraf's Scry Interference is in full effect. If a player does not point for 2 or more day cycles they will be auto-lynched even if their votes are known to be voided.

    All villains can 'Shape-shift' for one night and day cycle by voiding their own unique power and vote for one night and day cycle. While shape-shifted, the villain is scried as 'Good' (a Joe Schmo, if scried by the Psion). The villains send in one collective night kill vote every night phase. All villains start the game in contact with one another, but are not informed of their individual roles.

    The Shape-shifters:
    Shape-shifters PM the Narrorator(s) with all night cycle actions during the same night cycle. All kill targets should be in red. Special targets (Reaper's kill, Psion's scry target, etc.) should be in blue.
    Reaper:
    The Reaper can, during any night phase, perform one (and only one) unstoppable, kill per game (This kill overrides any other force in the game). This kill replaces the usual night kill.

    Psion:
    The Psion can scry any target during the night phase and receive their full role. This scry is subject to any and all forms of interference.

    Hypnotist:
    The Hypnotist can choose a target every night phase. During the next day phase the target's point will be voided and the Hypnotist's point counts as three votes. However, if the target points at the Hypnotist, the Hypnotist's point is voided and the target's point counts as three votes (Hero Hammerton's vote counts as nine only when pointing against the Hypnotist).

    Harvester:
    The Harvester collects votes toward him/herself throughout the game (These include Hero Hammerton's votes and do not include voided votes) and can, during any night phase, declare that he is using his ability. During the next day phase, the player that the Harvester points at gets all of the votes in the Harvester's pool accrued toward him/her for that day phase. All votes toward the Harvester during the day phase that he uses his ability do not count toward the Harvester's pool. The Harvester's pool of votes is reset after the ability is used. The Harvester is not aware of how many votes he has at any time.

    Interdictor:
    The Interdictor can void his own point during the next day phase to give interference to all scries during the current night phase.

    Clairvoyant:
    The Clairvoyant can void his own point during the next day phase to receive the names of every scry target during the current night phase. He does not receive the roles of the targets, nor the names of the scriers. This ability is immune to any and all interference.

    Not all roles will be used depending on the amount of players. The Roles that are not being used will be announced at the start of the game.

    The Good:
    Hero Hammerton:
    Hammerton's vote counts as three. Starts the game knowing the identity of Sly Sidekick.

    Sly Sidekick:
    Baner. Can choose any target to protect from the standard night kill. Starts the game knowing the identity of Hero Hammerton.

    Rival Researchers:
    Seer/Fool. Every night, the Researchers can scry a target; only the alignment is given. As long as both Researchers are alive, one will always receive a random result (determined by scrambling roles at the start of the game). Rival Researcher always scries as Rival Researcher. This scry is subject to any and all forms of interference. If the accurate Researcher (Seer) dies, the inaccurate Researcher (Fool) becomes an accurate Researcher. Shape-shifting does not affect the scries of the inaccurate Researcher.

    Scientists:
    Masons. The Scientists start the game knowing the identity of the other Scientists. There are half as many Scientists as there are Shape-shifters (rounded up) at the start of the game.

    Joe Schmo:
    Villager. Has no abilities.
    The game ends when there are no more Shape-shifters or the number of Good roles is equal to the number of Shape-shifters.

    Day cycles will generally be about 48 hours long, but may be extended due to the possibly drastic changes in total votes. Night cycles will be between 24 and 48 hours depending on participation. Days and nights may be extended on request, but I generally will not be extending day/night cycles unless there is a vote in green for an extension. Extension votes cannot be voided and do not count towards preventing auto-lynch.

    Please send all night action PMs to both Duneyrr AND Gray Mage

    I'll be in. Also, you should post in the WW Central thread that this has started. I, for one, rarely ever check the actual Structured Games forum. I usually rely on central for information.

    1. Can Hero Hammerton elect not to use his power so that he won't be found out by the wolves?
    2.
    during any night phase, use them on a target during the day phase
    This is contradictory. Do you mean to insert "that is then affected" between target and during?
    3. As it is worded, the Harvester doesn't use up his votes when he uses his power. This would allow him to have his friends point at him early (but only in timing and numbers as to not endanger him) until he has some large number of votes, and then just shut down the villagers by using his power every day to get that person lynched.

    1. Hero cannot elect to not use his ability.

    2. Umm... sure?

    3. Harvester uses up his pool of votes. I'll reword it.

    Many thanks to Gray Mage who has stepped up as Co-Narrator who will, in theory, keep me from royally screwing this game up! That also means all night action PMs should also be sent to Gray Mage.

    Thank you so much!

    Right guys, the game starts on Monday and, while the game can start with only 12 players, the more the merrier, right? The more people we have the more unique villains we can get and the more meta-gaming we can see!

    Hey you!

    Have read the rules? DOESN'T MATTER.

    I haven't read the rules, and I am in love with this game. YOU SHOULD BE TOO.

    JOIN IT NOW, OR DUNEYRR WILL CRY.

    Lookit 'im, he's tearing up.

    Do you want Duneyrr to cry? It's not pretty. This isn't a petit cry, where thin streaks of tears dribble down out of his eyes like he's a delicate flower. This will be snotty, it will be loud, and most of all, YOU WILL NOT ENJOY IT.

    You know what that isn't like? This game. You will enjoy this game.
