Yes. You thought you were safe. Perhaps you died a tragic death in a previous game of Werepenguin and didn't plan on being resurrected only to suffer the agony of reliving the murderous Groundhog-Day-esque experience yet again. Perhaps you watched safely from the sidelines, offering your suggestions and insights to help your soon-to-be murdered friends attempt to quell the penguinocalypse. Perhaps you were a werepenguin yourself.

You thought the pain was over. But the werepenguins, having already taken over the quaint town of Ben Lawers, have not had their desire for the blood of innocents sated. The have moved from the Scottish Highlands, crossed Loch Tay, and now have their eyes set on the village of Perth. From the Kinnoull Hill Woodland Park, they watch, perched atop the cliffside tower. Studying the townsfolk. Growing ever hungrier.

You thought you were safe. But now, the opportunity to save Perth is upon you. If Perth falls, where will the massacre end? THEY MUST BE STOPPED.

All who are brave enough to take a stand against the bloodthirsty menace, submit your name here and you will become a part of history. But how will you be remembered?

Carpe tibi Fatum.

Ben Lawers from the first game was selected because on the 27th of this month there's going to be the longest lunar eclipse of this century.  But it's mostly visible from the UK.  I don't know if I mentioned that.

Ok, I'm sort of pissed now. I'm the one living in a short distance from where the wildfires broke out. I'm the one who had to sleep a night inhaling smoke. I'm the one who had to worry about friends dying. I'm the one whose acquaintances properties were either destroyed or threatened to be destroyed. I'm the one who has to live in a place that's been destroyed by fires now (not the region I live in, that already got somewhat destroyed by fires sone years ago). And Shifter comes in from Australia to tell me I'm bad for making a joke about it. As I said, what the fuck??

Title: Re: Werepenguins ROUND 2 SIGN-UPS

I think we need more than 12 especially if we add another role. Also means more lynching and more gruesome werepenguin murders. I mean, I got spaghettified after having pubes thrown at me! You can't make it up!

Perth has entered into an alternate reality, where each day is 48 hours long - 24 hours of daylight, 24 hours of darkness, and 7pm US Eastern Daylight Time is when it transitions from darkness into light (or vice versa).

I understand this is a very anxious time. It is for all of us. Someone is about to die. But who?
Title: Re: Werepenguins Round 2 Spectators' Thread
Post by: DuckDodgers on July 29, 2018, 02:48:41 PM
I'm guessing it's going to be someone like Deadsirius or Ichi who gets eaten.  The penguins are going to try to follow the Jane/SCG plan, thus framing them a bit as well as provide 0 info.

You'd be bitter too if you were murdered by a random bunch of strangers you'd only met in a pub the day before that you were willing to defend and save against werepenguin attacks. And not even given the dignity of a burial after the grave mistake was realised. Just left hanging. Rotting. Stinking. And some fucker even pulled my pants down!

I wonder if it makes sense to add another quirk to a future game. The role of the psychic has been pretty standard. What if the psychic leaves a mystical icon emblazoned on the door of the person that he inquires about? It won't indicate whether that person was an innocent or a werepenguin, it would just indicate that the psychic had inquired about them.

I think that would be a neat twist. I won't be doing it in this game, because it's underway. But maybe next game it would be fun to add.

I like the exorcist role, too, based on the traditional Faith Healer from the Mafia game, but Shifter really ate a big dong on that one... ::)

Assuming I get my dibs on the narrator role, I'm looking at changing the exorcist so they get a 100% chance. This and the last game have gone very well for the penguins; winning the first, and coming down to the wire for the second. Do like the role though.
Admittedly that might just be down to Shifter being an idiot but hey.
Title: Re: Werepenguins Round 2 Spectators' Thread
Post by: boydster on August 01, 2018, 05:06:12 PM
Yes. Shifter really fucked up the Exorcist role. It wasn't even a high-percentage chance he would get it, but I blame him for messing up my vision for that character. He didn't even get a single shot at a save.

The burning emblem on the door from the psychic just seems like a great visual queue that should be there, to me. Almost as if the real truthterra has looked into your soul, and the universe reacted violently but in a very limited scope.

It won't indicate whether that person was an innocent or a werepenguin, it would just indicate that the psychic had inquired about them.

I think that would be a neat twist. I won't be doing it in this game, because it's underway. But maybe next game it would be fun to add.

I like the exorcist role, too, based on the traditional Faith Healer from the Mafia game, but Shifter really ate a big dong on that one... ::)

It would be good also if there were enough players that the amount of penguins was unknown. So there could be 2 or could be 3 penguins. Everyone knows we are playing with 2 penguins on the board but in reality, how would the villagers know this? They know there is at least 1 murderer and that's it.....

What if we didn't introduce the names of the penguins until after they had killed someone? And that the order they kill is random and not sequential (so the narrator roles a dice and that decides who kills). This way the amount of penguins in play would be unknown. And if a penguin is killed, it's no guarantee that there is only 1 more penguin.

Imagine lynching a 2nd penguin and still not sleeping easy that night.

To add further intrigue you could have it that a penguin may choose not to kill. (perhaps if they do this option, they could select 2 kills the next night). Even if all the penguins are dead, you still wouldn't know and the villagers could still lynch each other despite only innocents being in play. It could be then that we play until the last person standing or they decide not to lynch anyone anymore. If there is a penguin among them, the penguin wins by default. If only humans left, well, the humans win.

I dunno, just random thoughts. Needs more work

One of the fun characters I've seen is double agents; regular innocents who're working for the penguins. An extra vote for lynchings, and when they die no one would know what they were, but they can't kill during the night. Only downside is that probably needs more players.

One change I've been thinking about is something like 3 or more ghosts from lynching being able to act as a psychic. It's a counter balance to situations like this where the humans are losing badly and it gives the ghosts something to do. Probably needs more refinement.

Yes. Shifter really fucked up the Exorcist role. It wasn't even a high-percentage chance he would get it, but I blame him for messing up my vision for that character. He didn't even get a single shot at a save.

The burning emblem on the door from the psychic just seems like a great visual queue that should be there, to me. Almost as if the real truthterra has looked into your soul, and the universe reacted violently but in a very limited scope.

How did I fuck it up? I played similar to the last game (which I was an innocent). I voted early even against my better judgment in the first round but people were basically saying if you dont vote, you are suspect. So I voted because I had to go to bed and may not have had a chance. Roundy fucked it by leading a charge to lynch me. I was able to wake up before it was assured I would be lynched but everyone decided to go with Roundy despite my efforts to claim innocence.

Perhaps I should have not said anything for a few rounds? What kind of play is that?

I said it before and I'll say it again. Voting in the first round is idiotic because it's only pot luck. The idea that the first person who votes or if someone doesn't want to vote makes them suspect is stupid. I could have been chosen as a penguin or not chosen as anything special and I would have played the same way on the first day.

I like the ideas, but we really don't need to add extra advantages for the werepenguins just yet. We need to get a good idea of what changes will balance the game. And any single game won't really be indicative of having a balance. But I think there are subtle ways to give the villagers a little bit more help in future games. The exorcist is one way. Jane's idea was basically like the doctor from Mafia - someone with a 100% chance at a save. I went with the faith healer idea because I thought the added little bit of chance would be fun, but maybe the doctor is a better choice in a game as small as we have been playing.

I'm still having a lot of fun, both as a player and as a narrator, with the way this game has run so far. But if the villagers can't pull off a win sometime soon, I'm worried about future turnout taking a nosedive.

That's a cool idea. So basically a human that is in cahoots with the penguins, somewhat assured they wont be dying in the night, but working with the penguins to establish a voting bloc against who they want lynched. This would mean they know the identities of the penguins but cant reveal it

You could always have it, they only know the identity of just ONE of the penguins, and perhaps if a penguin is murdered, than all bets for his safety are off.

The fact the truthterra hasn't been killed yet is good for the humans. He would have gained enough knowledge by now to essentially know by process of elimination who the penguins are likely to be even if every one he inquired about is a regular villager.

Also, even if the penguins win every game, this game is still super fun for the non penguins to play. I don't think turnout will be a problem. Sure, lets get more balance, more roles, new abilities etc, but even dying in the first round, the game is still awesome

The one downside to the hunter being that it'd make our limited bodycount go down faster.
Did make me think though, there could be a player who, in a similar vein to the faith healer, has a 50% chance of surviving whenever they're attacked. Probably just by werepenguin, though maybe lynching too. Their identity would be outed the first time someone tries to kill them, but it gives the townsfolk a much-needed extra chance. Could counterbalance.

Could be good if there is someone with the possibility to survive a penguin attack. It would make the penguins think about who they would want to kill. This persons role if he was lynched or killed (on the first attempt) would not be revealed meaning the penguins may never know when they select who they want to kill that its a sure thing. (unless they tried and failed once).

Perhaps if they are lucky enough to survive, they get a clue (nothing more) as to the identity of the werepenguin

There is an elder role. He can survive 1 penguin attack. Upon the 2nd or a lynching,  all special villagers lose their powers. There is also a village idiot the if the villagers try to lynch, he is revealed and cannot be lynched, but loses his power to vote.

My biggest problem with that is that it impacts gameplay to an extent, at least for the penguins. Good roles would enhance rather than overrule. Like, even with the elder-type role the penguins still do something, and get information that they can work with. 'Miss a turn' is a bit harsh when turns last 48 hours. Longer in fact given that penguins alternate.

This would take some coordination between the narrator and the dead, and secrecy on the part of the dead, but the IRL game had some situations that could take place, one of which was a seance. Basically, the dead people know who the penguins are, and the living people nominate someone to contact the dead and ask a question. The questions are predetermined to provide some information, but not outright give them away, such as is the penguin male or female, do they wear glasses, what color hair do they have, etc. Obviously the questions would need to be tweaked some, such as does their name contain a certain letter or have they voted for an innocent to die, or something else like that. It kind of plays off of cruton's idea of the 3 dead psychic.

That's the idea. The narrator would create the question list and then the villagers select a representative to ask 1 question which is yes/no. I'll dig out my game cards in the near future and show you an example of the questions.

Another interesting idea, which lends power to the argument of early lynching is starting with 1 fewer penguins than should be playing and the first victim becomes a penguin either the next night or the 1 following unless the original is killed.  Obviously the marked player wouldn't be revealed, we would just know someone got bit but not killed and will soon transform. That person would play as a human until they become a penguin, and only at that point find out who turned them.

What about simply changing it so the penguins don't know who the other penguins are?  This seems like an easy way to lend a small balance.  It would make it so the penguins also have the risk of killing their own, and prevents them from coordinating.  It would give them a taste of the helplessness we feel.

I like the ideas of clues. I think that every time a penguin kills there should be a clue. But I don't know how to make a clue that straddles the line between useless and game breaking.

Players can vote to hold a seance to use a ghost as a psychic instead of lynching. One reading per ghost. Maybe the ghost gets to pick the target.

I voted for Pez and myself. Because lynching Pez lynches me at the same time. And I just want to rest.

There's a dynamic I've noticed this game.  The penguins are trying to find the psychic while the psychic builds a coalition.  It's only a matter of time until the psychic has enough support to effectively win the game.

There's a custom role that seems like a joke but could help to make this dynamic more interesting, the village idiot.  The narrator tells him he's a psychic but he isn't.

I like the idea of a double agent. A villager who knows the status of the penguins, but is not one of them. He votes in a way the penguins like to ensure he survives the nights. (No guarantee about the lynching though).

Someone who can withstand 1 penguin attack and if they are attacked they are given a hint as to the identity of the penguin. If they are attacked again their survivability is 50%. If they survive the 2nd time they are given the identity of the penguin. This makes it so the penguins have an element of risk when they decide to kill someone

The number of penguins in play should be unknown. Is it 2, 3 or 4? (depending on the size of the game). We don't know until either no one is killed during a night or when someone dies the penguin signs their name on the victim. (so it may take 3 nights and 3 different names before the villagers know that there are 3 penguins afoot!)

If a doctor/exorcist wants to protect a villager but has instead given the name of a penguin that was supposed to be killing on that night, the doctor/exorcist dies (perhaps in addition to another villager the penguin wanted to kill).
