You are all making a terrible mistake. Unless you're a wolf in which case you're taking one more step towards victory.

And perhaps Vindictus was killed because he PM'ed a wolf instead of a villager. So who did Vindictus PM and who do he guess about?

He PM'd Parsifal, who was already dead.

Fuck those people. :D

Pongo seems to be having difficulty understanding that this game is about the players, not himself.  For the future, we should get prospective narrators to agree to narrate the game normally before we let them do it.

I do comprehend his writing.  It's just that for clarity and convenience's sake, he should provide the summary at the end.  Like Parsifal said, sometimes people just need to see it at a glance.

You've expended a good bit of effort telling me how I "should" be narrating and saying that I do not post normally. I can agree with second part; I think that a well written narration will create a more immersing game and I can assure people read closer by not allowing them to skip it all at a glance. Players also have the option check the OP for unambiguous updates. If the way in which I am running the narration is too much for you to handle, no one is forcing you to participate. Further, I don't spend inordinate amounts of time writing the flavor, but neither do I do it in haste. I don't think it's too much to ask a player to spend 45 to 120 seconds reading it.

The narration will likely continue as it has been. Day will end today around 5pm EST. Sorry for missing the "time" tags today. Also, ten votes (round up right?) are required for a majority, I'll endeavor to post this every game-morning.

Honestly, I think all they want is in the bit where you say "today is night/day.  Wolf xxxx send me your kill/villagers lynch" just put above it "xxxx is dead".

I am aware of their wants. What they need to understand is you don't always get what you want, but if you read sometimes, you might just find that you get what you need.

That link is atrociously overused on this forum.  And in this case (as it is in about 90% of the other times it's posted), it is not a valid rebuttal.

I don't see anything wrong with the narration. It builds a bit of anticipation. If you want a quick check you can just glance at the list in the OP.

You know something, take what I just said with a grain of salt.  I'm kind of in a bad mood about something else and just taking it out on Pongo.  He's not that bad.  I guess what sort of set me off was his analogy about LOTR, which I don't feel is very appropriate, and then I just went off on a tangent.  I'm sorry, Pongo.  I know you really are just trying to make it a good game.  Let's make up and cuddle.

That would be a valid point if we put aside the glaring issue which is that your narration simply isn't very good. It looks and feels very amateurish, like a story made by a high schooler in literature class. Lots and lots of mistakes, too.

If you actually put effort into making an engaging story then go ahead and take a shot at immersing us, otherwise don't flaunt your talent needlessly and give us the relevant information in a compact form.

Hmm, a completely split vote at first, then suddenly everybody is voting for the terror.  My gut tells me that if this is true, it's because one of these two is a wolf.

I'll vote to lynch Terror [12]

To be honest I'm just grateful someone is willing to put the effort in to do it.

And I don't think the stories are that bad.

I think people should just stop moaning and enjoy the game.

Lynch the active villagers that haven't been posting much, like Irush. Rooster is playing far too badly to be a wolf, but I might be wrong.

I agree with this.
Irush is likely playing the "I won't be lynched if I don't post" wolf strategy.
