    Default Barnyard WW

    It was a fine spring day on the farm. The sheep were baaing. The chickens were clucking. The donkey was braying. The llama was making whatever that noise is that llamas make.

    Farmer Brown was going on vacation. After putting extra food in the feeders, he hopped in his pickup and drove off. Several sets of yellow eyes watched him go.

    "Are they gone?"
    "Looks like it boss."
    "Alright, let's kill 'em all!"
    "No! We still have to be careful. Stick to the plan."
    "Uh yeah, boss, about this plan..."
    The speaker adjusted his wool.
    "Do you think we're taking this phrase a bit too literally?"
    "Nonsense!"

    Spoiler: Rules (Please Read)
    Show

    By joining this game, you agree to follow all the rules below. If you do not follow one or more of them, you may be kicked from the game. (Though I will probably give a warning first unless it's very serious.)

    Only non-eliminated players (and forum moderators acting officially) are allowed to post in this thread once the game starts. Exception: eliminated players may make one post following their elimination provided that they don't reveal any important information. Posts that do not follow this rule may be deleted.

    This is a game of Werewolf. See WW Central for the general werewolf rules.

    The game ends when all wolves have been eliminated (livestock win), or when the number of surviving wolves equals or exceeds the number of surviving non-wolf players (wolves win).

    Days phases will last 48 hours, night phases 24. If this is going to be not enough time for someone, please tell me before the game starts so I can change it.

    Tie votes lynch the first person to reach that number of votes.

    The 25% rule is not in effect. There is no minimum number of votes required for a lynch to happen.

    Players will be auto lynched after three consecutive day phases of inactivity (not posting). If there is an available replacement, they will be replaced with their replacement taking over their role. Otherwise, they will be eliminated from the game as though they had been lynched.

    Helgraf's scry interference rule is in effect. If two players with scrying roles scry the same player during a night phase, both players will receive the result of "scry failed".

    Roles are revealed on death.

    Votes and actions will be accepted in advance, and may be changed at any time before they are due. I may place a limit on how far in advance I will accept votes and actions.

    PMs are allowed, though I must be CCed in them.

    Power roles will be given QT's (Quicktopic threads) to send in actions and for discussion if they are the wolves or masons. You don't have to use them, but I would prefer it if you do because that means less PMs filling up my Inbox.

    No sharing official QT's or official PMs. Paraphrasing is fine.

    No making your own QT's for this game and inviting people to them.

    Don't be insulting.

    No bringing up out-of-game consequences for in-game actions, unless you are doing so officially as a moderator of the forums. Remember, it's a game. If you have a problem with something another player is doing, you can bring it up in private to me, the narrator, or wait until the end-of-game response period.

    Spoiler: Roles
    Show

    Spoiler: Livestock
    Show

    Mother Sheep (Seer): This sheep has been around for ages and knows how to tell her flock from the imposters. Each night the mother sheep scries one player and learns the team (Livestock, Wolves, or Neutral) of that player.

    Donkey (Fool): Thinks they are the mother sheep, but aren't. Starts the game being told that they are the mother sheep. Scries a player each night like the mother sheep, but receives a random result.

    Llama (Baner): This creature is the protector of farmer Brown's flock. Each night phase the Llama targets one player, who is protected from night kills that night. The llama cannot target themselves two nights in a row.

    Chickens(2) (Masons): Birds of a feather. Each chicken starts the game knowing the others.

    Sheep(7) (Normal Villagers): Just a bunch of sheep. No special abilities.

    Spoiler: Wolves
    Show

    Alpha Wolf (Alpha): The alpha of the wolf pack has a lustrous white coat that helps him blend in with the sheep even if one peeks under his wool. Scries as livestock.

    Clever Wolf (Devil): This wolf is good at picking up on details. Each night phase the clever wolf can scry one other player and learn their role.

    Mad Wolf (Beast): This wolf is especially ferocious, and will take someone down with them when they die. When the mad wolf dies, they get 24 hours to send in their choice of who they want to kill. If they don't send in their choice during that time, the rest of the wolf team votes on who they want to kill.

    Fox: The fox starts off not knowing the rest of the wolf team and with the rest of the wolf team not knowing them. The fox has a special ability called "slink" which they can use up to two times during the game. To use this ability, the fox must send a message to the narrator during a day phase. The fox will then be immune for the following day phase and two night phases. During these phases, all lynches and kills on the fox will fail, and all scries targeting the fox will get the result of "scry failed". After using this ability the fox cannot use it again the following two day phases. So, for example, if the fox used slink Day 4, they would be immune Night 4, Day 5, and Night 5, and could not use slink again until Day 7.

    Spoiler: Neutral

    The Raccoon: Not much is known about this mysterious creature. Role revealed on death or victory.

    Well, I want to have this up and recruiting for at least a week so everyone has a chance to see it. WW Central has me scheduled to end recruiting on the 23rd, and that's a little over a week of recruiting so I guess I may as well just go with that. This game will start on the 23rd, and will be recruiting right up until it starts.

    I think we have enough players so far. I might need to remove a wolf role or add more town power roles to have it balanced.

    I made some additions to the rules, so everyone please read them. I know rules about conduct aren't common on this forum, but I added them to avoid a repeat of My Little Townie. I hope most people won't find them hard to follow, anyway. Game will start later today.

    Recruitment is now closed. Auto-lynch replacements are still more than welcome, PM me if you wish to be one. I will start sending out roles. Please do not post in this thread until I start Day 1.

    Alright, all roles have been sent out. Everyone please check your Inbox. I will post the opening narration and start Day 1 tomorrow evening. Again, please do not post in this thread until that time. Thank you all for your patience.

    Game Start

    The wolves double-checked their disguised and shuffled in with the flock.

    "Baa, I'm a sheep."
    "Baa, I am a sheep as well."
    "Grr, uh, I mean, baa."

    While the sheep were fooled by the disguises, they could not help but notice that there were more members of the flock than there had been just moments ago. The mother sheep jumped up on a feeder and spoke up.

    "Baaaa, there are wolves among us. We must kill them before they kill us, baaaa."

    The rest of the sheep began to bleat in panic as they desperately tried to identify the predators.

    Day 1 begins now and ends in 48 hours. Get your actions and votes in.

    Dave looked across the flock, a frown growing slowly on a his face...admittedly, not an uncommon sight; he'd been a grumpy old ram for longer than most had been alive...at least, he thought that was the case. Admittedly, he himself couldn't remember exactly when he'd joined the flock, or indeed who else had been around at the time. Guess it's like they say: memory's the first to go, followed right be the memory.

    Dave had never known exactly how many sheep the flock contained (every time he'd tried to count them, he fell asleep about halfway through), but giving it the ole eyeball estimate, there did seem to be more sheep than usual...but that could just be his damnable memory misinforming him again. His gaze was redirected to the mother sheep, which brought up another inconsistency: he didn't remember there being any particular leader among the sheep, natural followers that they all were. Should not the eldest be the leader? Why not Dave? But Dave kept his silence; while it was certainly possible that he was the rightful ruler of the flock, he had no interest in leading a group of whiny sheep away from wolves. That was far more responsibility than should be entrusted to ram so old and forgetful he couldn't even remember how many sheep their flock contained, much less the names of the individual members, much less which ones were clearly newcomers that couldn't be trusted. Besides, he probably didn't remember this "mother sheep" because he'd never paid any mind to those that fancied themselves above the rest; sheep though he may be, Dave had no interest in any authority other than their farmer.

    Hearing another speak up, and calling out a group of a thousand ducks as their suspected, Dave didn't even bother suppressing a snort: there was no way a thousand ducks wouldn't be incredibly obvious trying to pass themselves off a sheep; such a sheep would never even fit in the barn! And since this fellow had proposed a, quite frankly, ridiculous scape-duck, Dave saw no reason not to point his own cloven hoof in their direction.

    The great lord Ar-En-Gee has spoken to me, and claimed that Pelican, being a bird, cannot in fact be a sheep.

    I'll try to put together an RP post later.

    Hopefully I'll have a chance to RP later, but for now I have to sleep.
