Thread: The Brotherhood - Part One - The Theft of The Reliquary - [Concluded]

  1. #1

    Post The Brotherhood - Part One - The Theft of The Reliquary - [Concluded]

    Introduction
    Tongues of silvery moonlight shone down upon St. Thomas’ abbey. The sky was completely clear with not a single cloud floating overhead. The whole area was silent, with little more than an odd rustle in the trees to cause any form of disturbance. Yet something abnormal also seemed to be in the air, something dangerous - the kind of night in which people felt that something terrible was going to happen.

    The almost perfect silence was instantly broken by a small group of hooded and cloaked men upon the backs of three black horses, radiantly shimmering in the light. Each one carried a large leather bag and a small pouch containing stale water. After taking a quick swig, they dismounted from their horses and marched in a threatening militaristic line towards the abbey’s doors. They threw them open and walked inside, striping off their heavy cloaks to reveal grubby and stained monk’s robes and carelessly shaven heads. As they marched onwards, each step echoing through the old stone hallways, each one of them produced a weapon of some form from their bag. Menacingly holding them, they continued, towards the monk’s residences. The monks didn’t know this yet, but the following few weeks were going to be incredibly tough.
    ____________________

    The Monastery, Abbey and Reliquary of St. Thomas, Suffolk, England, 1205. Several evil thieves have infiltrated the abbey and the order of monks with the aim of stealing all the priceless holy relics locked within its reliquary.

    If you have not played mafia before, then this thread may be able to help you out with the basics.

    This game will have goals similar to those of the majority of other mafia games. The thieves aim to obliterate the town till they gain the majority, while the monks aim to remove the threat before the thieves can take over.

    The traditional twenty-four hour day/night phases will be stuck to in this game. The time limit may vary slightly though to allow for any problematic circumstances though.

    All monks of the abbey, with the exception of one group of “special” monks can, during the night phase, in groups of three, either attack or protect a player from harm. If you wish to perform one of these actions simply PM me with the names of your partners and your target player. Any groups with fewer than three participants will more than likely fail in their efforts and members may also be killed in the action. Any member of a group who don’t PM will not be added to the count.

    Normal rules apply - no screenshots and no quoting of Role PMs. Also no quoting of chat logs or of inter-player PMs is not permitted either. The dead can post, but may not discuss their role or anything revealed to them privately that is not already in the public eye. Players who break the rules will be instantly removed from the game through the force of the WoG.

    As stated the WoG will exist in this game and players whom do not vote in the day phase for three consecutive rounds will suffer it. I would replace WoGed players, but I don't feel that enough interest has been shown in becoming a replacement for it to be worth the effort.

    This game is currently in play. Thankyou to all for joining.

    Welcome back. Good holiday?

    BTW, I would suggest reducing the time for nights. 48 hours might be too much.

    Fine thanks. It was a little bit warm and parking the car was horrendous with the Women's British Open on, but other than that, it was perfect.

    Hmm, I was not quite sure about this issue as I, along with several others, had the problems of organisation across several time zones in games which similar teams were required. I'll leave it as an item up for debate for now, but, if others make the recommendation, then I will try to adjust it to a more suitable arrangement. Thankyou for pointing the potential problem out.

    48 hour nights sound good, the time zone differences do make coordination hard.
    Why did the chicken cross the road?

    So that its subjects will view it with admiration, as a chicken which has the daring and courage to boldly cross the road,
    but also with fear, for whom among them has the strength to contend with such a paragon of avian virtue? In such a manner is the princely
    chicken's dominion maintained. ~Machiavelli

    Keep in mind that there is never much discussion going on during night phases, so 48 hours of in thread silence might kill the game.

    On the other hand, a 48 hour day phase might generate more discussion and thus more actual participation. It would also be more difficult to explain non participation in the thread if each day lasts 48 hours.

    Maybe both day and night 48 hours would be best and more fair?

    48 hours night will make sure the game dies overtime. Not having to look at a thread for 2 days kills it.

    Maybe you should allow performing night actions by proxy?

    For the mafia, each mafioso can send you the kill orders for his buddies as well in case they can't get their orders in in time?

    The townies or the pro-town roles can pm you and tell you : 'I give proxy to 'player' to decide what night action I'm going to perform'?

    As I understand it correctly, three regular townies can perform a night action. If it's allowed that two of them give the power to a third one to pm the host the orders of the night, there shouldn't be any problem I guess, since at least one out of three will be able to pm the host in time. And if all townies get the results of their action, it might be an interesting addition to the game, will: "number 3" be trustwhorthy or not? It'll certainly be very interesting if you include the rule that the dead cannot talk about the night actions they performed while being alive.

    I've taken a look at your suggestion Andres, and I think that it could work and be an integral feature of the game. Sadly though, although I appreciate the suggestion, unfortunately, I don't wish to integrate any major changes into the framework of the gameplay at this stage - my sincere appologies for any problems caused. I'll reduce the time-scale to 24 hours to avoid the problems which you have notified me of though. Thanks.

    If it's fine with you guys, I'll start in about sixteen/seventeen hours. Interest seems to have died down slightly, so I am beginning to doubt that I will receive any more players that I already have. I'll PM some die-hard mafia players though, in hope of attracting their interest.

    I'm sorry, but I've concluded that perhaps a re-start may be in order. I've made several mistakes in role assignments as well as in PMs - some don't read fluently and may be self-contradictory. The sign-up phase will continue for another 24-hrs while I re-phrase all of the PMs to a more understandable level, re-write my introduction and clear up some minor mistakes I overlooked in the gameplay. I'm extremely sorry for the problems which my disorganisation has inflicted upon you and will try and rectify all issues soon. My appologies again.
