    Default City of Shadows WW: Game Over!

    City of Shadows

    Darkness fell onto the city long ago. But recentally, the monarchy and the assassins, the two sources of darkness in the city, were thrown off, though at a heavy price. Now, the city is back to it's old self: citizens have returned, assassins have regrouped and rebuilt, and the monarchy has been sent back to the surface from below.

    Now is the time to rise again, and either banish the growing shadows from the city, or help the shadows consume it!

    Roles:

    Team Good:

    Team Good's goal is to kill all the Assassins and the Monarchy.

    Spoiler
    Show
    • Villagers: Basic villager of WW games. Trying to survive AND stamp out both Team Evils. When they die, any items they have are not revealed.
    • City Guard: The protectors of the city. Once per night, they can all vote on a person. If that person is to be lynched the next day, they instead are not lynched.
    • Fortuneteller: The Seer. Can use their Crystal Ball without the one-nignt cooldown. Starts with a Crystal Ball.
    • Escaped Lunatic: The Fool. Thinks they are the Fortuneteller. Is told they are the Fortuneteller. Is told they have a Crystal Ball. Starts with the Broken Ball. Can use the Broken Ball without the one-night cooldown.
    • Wandering Guardian: The Baner. Can use their spell book to protect someone from being night-killed without the one-night cooldown.


    Team Monarchy:

    The populace has been getting out of hand lately... time to show them who is in charge... and deal with those assassins while at it... but where are their servants?

    Spoiler
    Show
    • Corrupt King: The corrupt ruler of the City...and quite good at disguising himself. Scries as a villager. When he perishes, he dies as a villager, complete with item-hiding powers. Starts with an Assassin's Dagger, and can use it without the cooldown.
    • Corrupt Queen: The Corrupt King's wife, who has made a couple of deals with devils to secure her position. Starts with a Crystal Ball, given to her by a powerful devil to help uphold her end of the bargin, and can use it without the cooldown.
    • Infernal Servant: Assistants to the Corrupt Royalty. Sent by bigger devils to help send souls their way.
    • Explosive Fiend: This demon explodes upon death, killing one of the people that killed it. Scries as an Infernal Servant. Is told they are an Infernal Servant.


    Team Monarchy has two groups: The King and Queen, and the Infernal Servants. The King and Queen know each other, and the Infernal Servants know each other, but the two groups do not know each other.


    Team Assassin:

    Time to fulfill that contract the rich buisnessman offered not too long ago... and kill all of the royalty and their supporters. And while at it... kill all those that might oppose the new ruler.

    Spoiler
    Show
    The Serpent's Head: Silent, and deadly, this man's true name has been forgotten... but his skill has not. He starts with an Assassin's Dagger, and can use it without the cooldown.
    The Fallen Crown: Cast out of the royal family because of the deal with the powers below, he wants to reclaim his throne. To this end, he has skillfully obtained a Crystal Ball, and can use it without the cooldown.
    The Stage-Master: Formerly an actor, he has joined the Assassins due to MUCH better pay. Once per night, he can disguise someone in a costume, adding as many details to the costume as they wish. He can even create costumes of those who are not even in the city. If an individual dies in the costume, he dies as the role of the costume (though false on-death abilities are not activated). Also, his work is silent.
    Assassins: These assassins simply follow orders, waiting to strike.

    Team Assassin all starts knowing each other.


    Neutral:

    These people are searching for survival. They want to finish the game alive.

    Spoiler
    Show
    Runaway Princess (Assassin Lover): Having fallen in love with an assassin who once tried to kill her, she now is on the run from both of the dark powers of the city. However, due to her knowledge, she would be valuable to the Assassins, leaking out one Monarchy name if she perishes to their blade.

    Rebel Assassin (Monarchy Lover): Once a mighty killer, this assassin has laid down his weapons for good at the sight of a woman he was supposed to kill, having fallen in love with her at first sight. However, both the Assassin Guild and the Monarchy disaprove of this arrangement. The Monarchy is after him more though: if he dies to their blade, he leaks out one name of the assassins.

    The Lovers give one time extra scries to their sides if their side kills them during the night. However, this only works once: If one of the Lovers dies for any reason (save for auto-lynch), the other also immeditally perishes. They have two ways of survival:
    • Simply survive until the end of the game.
      OR
    • Get all the City Guards killed so they can leave the city.


    Items:
    Spoiler
    Show
    • Assassin's Dagger: The bearer of an Assassin's Dagger can attempt to night-kill someone of their choosing. However, it's use is physically taxing on someone who is not trained in it's use, forcing a one-night cooldown.
    • Broken Ball: The bearer of the Broken Ball can use it's power to scry a player for their role. However, it's power is draining for anyone other than it's original owner, forcing a one-night cooldown for anyone other than the Escaped Lunatic. Also, it's scries are... not entirely correct... save for times when a mad mind can see what a sane mind cannot.
    • Crystal Ball: The bearer of a Crystal Ball can use it's power to scry a player for their role. However, it's power is draining for anyone other than it's original owner, forcing a one-night cooldown for anyone that did not start with one.
    • Spellbook of Protection: The protective magics in this book can protect someone from harm, but using them constantly can wear down someone. The Wandering Guardian is skilled enough to continually use them to stop night kills, but anyone else will have a one-night cooldown after a sucessful Bane.


    Item Actions:
    Use Item: Use the item as listed in it's description. If you are not the original owner of the item, you cannot take an action the next night.
    Pass Item: PM the Narrator of whom you wish to pass the Item to. The target of the pass will recive the item come daybreak... but if they are night-killed, the killers get the item instead.
    Destroy Item: PM the Narrator that you wish to destroy the item. The item is removed from the game. No one can use it.

    Plotting:
    At the end of the night phase, whom was scried, killed, and baned will be revealed... unless the committer of the scrying, killing, or baning plotted openly. During the day phase, the committer can put their target's name in their (un-edited) post, and PM the Narrator their quoted post with their target highlighted (like the assassins of Llama Llama Duck in the past, except here it applies to everyone with items). If the target is night-killed in this way, the body shows up a few days later.

    Additional Rules:

    Helgraf's Scry Interference Rule is in effect, with interfenence as the result instead of any other result.
    Upon death, any items the victim had are revealed (unless they are a villager or the Corrupt King), and someone from the mob or one who night-killed recive the item. The only exception is with the Explosive Fiend: When killed, destroys all items on the Explosive Fiend and the killer. If lynched, the 'killer' is determined randomly.
    You can only use one item action per night, UNLESS you are in item cooldown; then you can use none.

    Note: Depending on the number of players, there will be 1-3 secret roles and 1-2 secret items in the game as well. The more that sign up, the more that people have to work with. (Currently 1 role for the Assassins (least likely), 1 role for the Town, and 1 role that is Neutral (most likely).)

    Current Players: 21 8

    I'm guessing the superdark33-is-trying-to-eat-everybody trend isn't helping.

    I don't know why in MyLittlePony, but you were kind of poking us in Aftermath with all the Bolded Lolcatz speak....

    And as for YOW, The network seems to be after you, I still don't get why you don't trust them.

    You listed the win conditions for the lovers, but not for anyone else.
    If this were a standard two faction game then they would be obvious. For an alternate three faction game, this leaves me confused as to what I would be attempting to do, depending on which team I were assigned to.

    You alluded to the fact that the Monarchy were supposed to destroy the Assassins, and vice verse.
    Is that correct?

    If so, those are extremely easy objectives, and the Assassins are at a HUGE advantage because the Monarchy isn't in complete awareness of each other.
    Not only do the Assassins start knowing each other, but they have an Illusionist on top of it.
    The Monarchy has no chance to win, other than pure unadulterated dumb luck.

    Team Good's goal is to kill all the Assassins and the Monarchy.
    Team Assassin's goal is to kill all of the Monarchy and to bring down the total number of Team Good (and neutral) to their number (ex: 4 assassins left, they when when Monarchy is dead and the Good Team's numbers is equal to 4).
    Team Monarchy's goal is to kill all of the Assassins and bring down the total number of Team Good (and neutral) to their number.

    Also, if things go as planned, the Monarchy has an advantage over the Assassins: numbers. They will have one or two more Infernal Servants than the Assassins have of ordinary Assassins.

    Small risk for the Monarchy, though... the Corrupt King can kill the servants since he doesn't know who they are... and this could be disasterous if he kills the Explosive Fiend.

    Keep in mind there will be at least 1 secret role, whose victory conditions may or may not conflict with the known. (The "Illusionist" can also "create" secret roles as well, if he chooses).
