Werepenguins - The Perth Massacre
« on: July 27, 2018, 04:18:35 PM »
To Perth!

After the slaughter at Ben Lawers, the werepenguins knew they must press ever onwards. Their appetite for human flesh had been piqued, and with not a single soul left living in town, they set their sights Eastward. On the horizon, they could see the faint glow of a larger town. Yes. That's where they would go next. No one would even suspect them, as they had left no witnesses alive.

They headed to Loch Tay, careening through the waters to the river. As they began to notice signs of civilization, the werepenguins abandoned the water and fled into the hills of the Kinnoull Hill Woodland Park. There, perched in the cliffside tower, looking down upon the town of Perth, they planned their attack. And the sun began to rise.

---

The Greyfriar's Bar had been the scene of a rather incredible night of drinking and partying. Some thought it was because of the Blood Moon that was to rise the following day. Others blamed the tourists, who seemed to have shown up in droves that evening. Whatever the reason, the music was loud, the beer flowed like water, strangers became the best of friends, and as the night wound down, many found themselves passed out on the banks of the River Tay unable to stumble their way back to their beds.

It's dawn. The sun rises, and 12 very hungover and very tired individuals struggle to find their feet. What happened last night? Where are we? IS THAT A RIVER I'M SLEEPING NEXT TO? Slowly, they all realize they blacked out after a night of most excellent partying. They don't recognize each other, but then again, why would they? It had been dark in the bar, and they were quite drunk. As they look around though, something seems... off.

There's a pool of blood in the grass alongside the river. It trails off toward the water. There is... IS THAT A FOOT? Holy shit, there's a human foot, still in a shoe, gnawed off just above the ankle sitting at the edge of the water. Further down, a finger with a wedding band still on it. Next to that finger, the very tip of what was unmistakeably a werepenguin flipper. There had been rumors about the werepenguins before, but no one in Perth had seen one yet. In fact, it had become something of a local myth. But this. This was no myth.

---

Of the 12 people now standing together, 2 knew they had infiltrated the human circle of trust and they must work together to destroy them. The game is afoot!

How Werepenguin Works
(shamelessly lifted from Crouton & Lord Wilmore)

Okay, first off, anyone who doesn't understand the game or any part of it, feel free to send me a PM and I will clear it up for you. I know most of you haven't played this before, so here's a general outline:

There are 2 Penguins (chosen at random) and 10 Villagers (including one Exorcist and one psychic, also chosen at random) in the game. The penguins will be identified as follows:

Pebbles McWaddlebottom
Fishcakes von Peckington


The game is based on 'rounds': each round lasts 48 hours. This is made up of a 24 hour 'day' period (i.e. when it is daytime in the game) and a 24 hour night period (when it is nightime in the game). Why does a Werepenguin day last two days in real time? Well, we have lots of people from lots of countries and hence lots of timezones at FES, and I want to give everyone a fair chance to vote/talk/play, and a 48 hour round is the only way to do this.



Villagers


For the Villagers, the aim is to kill all the Werepenguins. At the outset of the game, the Villagers do not know who the Werepenguins are; it is up to them to figure it out.

The Villagers can vote to 'lynch' someone they suspect of being a Werepenguin during the day cycle of the game. To do so, they must secure a certain number of votes (the number is decided by yours truly). Of course, the Werepenguins can also vote as no-one knows who they are! People who have already died in the course of the game are not allowed to talk during the day, and hence cannot vote.

The village oracle, known locally as TruthTerra is on the side of the Villagers; he/she gets one chance each night to make a guess and find out whether or not someone is a Werepenguin. TruthTerra sends me a PM, and I tell him/her whether or not that player is a Werepenguin. Like everyone else in the game, TruthTerra can vote in the lynch.

There is also an Exorcist among you. The Exorcist may choose one player to keep safe each night. During the night, if the player he is protecting is attacked, he will perform a ceremony that has a 50% chance of chasing the Werepenguin-demon away - thus, saving the Villager.


Werepenguins

For the Werepenguins, they need to kill all of the Villagers.

Unlike the Villagers, each Werepenguin knows who all the other Werepenguins are. Every night, a designated Werepenguin can send me a PM telling me who they want to kill, and then that person will be killed. The Penguins take it in turns: Pebbles the first night, Fishcakes the second. On the third night, it is Pebbles' turn again. If a Werepenguin dies, the Werepenguins do not lose a turn; instead the turns alternate between the remaining Werepenguins. The following morning, I will reveal who was killed, and how.

Game Rules


1. The first rule of Werepenguin is that you do not break the game.

2. The second rule of Werepenguin is THAT YOU DO NOT BREAK THE GAME. A not uncommon event in WW games is that having been betrayed by his/her fellow Penguins, a dead Penguin reveals their identities. This is a dickish thing to do. Seriously, Penguins are bastards, and they will do anything to save their own hides. If they think you're as good as dead, they will betray you and join the other villagers in voting to have you lynched, just to avoid suspicion. This is completely normal, so please don't be a whiny bitch about it. Remember, even if you die as a Penguin, if the Penguins eventually win, you also win.


Long story short: Penguins turn on Penguins. Deal with it. If you ruin the game for everybody, I will probably ban you for a month or something. It's very annoying.

3. Don't edit your posts! Just make another one. This is no big deal, but if you edit your post, you lose your vote that round, so it's in your interest not to do so.

4. Make it clear who you are voting to lynch. I want to see the words ['vote to lynch *insert name here*'] to count a post as a vote. You can say '[I vote to lynch]' or just '[vote to lynch]', but I want to see the words '[VOTE TO LYNCH (name)]' in that order. Don't say 'vote billy' or 'lynch John', because in a certain context these could look like suggestions rather than votes. If it's unclear, I just won't count it. It isn't that hard to put three words in front of someone's name in the correct order.

4a.  Brackets, that's the ticket.  example, [vote to lynch so and so]

5. Don't post during the day-cycle of the game if you have been killed. Dead players can only talk at night. Just to be clear, lynches happen during the day and Werepenguins/TruthTerra/Exorcist PM at night. Check my last update; if a lynch is on, it's daytime. If I've asked the Penguins/TruthTerra/Exorcist to PM, it's night.

6. TruthTerra and the Exorcist cannot tell people they are TruthTerra or the Exorcist (at least not within this topic). Obviously, I cannot control what you do elsewhere (PM, IM, IRC etc.), but beware; especially with TruthTerra, not all may be as it seems...


7. As per the title, if you're not playing, you're not playing. You can't join late due to the mechanics of the game, and I don't want you posting if you're not involved. I'll just delete any posts you make. If anyone gets trollish though, I will hand out suspensions.

Most of all, have fun, and POST. It's way more fun if you get involved, instead of just showing up and voting every now and again. Plus, inactivity can really kill a game based on votes, so try and stay active if you can.

Question.  Are the rules different than the last round?  PM's and such?

Also.  Disclaimer.  I may attempt role playing during this, haven't decided yet.  Try not to take anything I might say personally and I promise I'll do the same.

That's a very good question, Crouton. I can't control PMs, and so I didn't really state it as an official rule, but I do think it would be best if the players can have a gentlemanperson's agreement to play the game out in the open. That being said, it's not an actionable offense. However, the villagers and/or werepenguins may decide to use suspicions of private messaging to influence the choices of those around them.

Actually SCG and Jane are unlikely to be reprising their werepenguin roles (males game less boring) and will probably be the first to be taken being widely deemed as safe.  Lynching them is a waste. Plus I'm interested to see how they die after what they did to me!

If the werepenguins were randomly chosen there's no reason to assume they were not chosen.

Well that's just rude.

Yep it's possible we'll be chosen, but equally we're more likely to have not have been. Which does make us likely targets because we know how the penguins think, we're in the best position to spot suspicious behaviour. And I'm well aware that saying that's probably signed my death warrant, but I expect the penguins'll figure it out sooner or later so eh.

Important question! Does this game feature the ability to lynch the narrator?

I've made a decision. You've perspective on all of this is wrong.  There's nothing to believe that these penguins will attack us.  The only thing that might provoke them.  Such as Roundy.  I'm warning you Roundy.  If you don't calm down your homicidal rhetoric I'm afraid I'll have to vote to lynch you.

We've been over this. The scientist did a shit job. And yes, it's unlikely that a penguin will be lynched. But do you really want to wait until the penguins have killed everyone to decide who the penguin is?

It's going to turn out that Pez actually is a penguin this time isn't it?

If people want to vote today, wait until nearer the time, we will at least have some information from how people are behaving.

I assigned each player a number, 1 thru 12, based on when they signed up (first player enrolled was number 1, second player enrolled was number 2, etc). Then I rolled a 12 sided die 4 times. The first 2 rolls were for the penguins, the last 2 rolls were for the special villager roles. There were no duplicate numbers that came up.
