Come one, come all, come to the annual Flat Earth Society Round-up, held in chilly Nunavut this year!
Sadly, the Flat Earth Society Round-up is just a front. You have all have been told the true reason for the remote location; high ranking Flat Earth officials have uncovered evidence that the missing Flat Earth map was sold to a hermit living deep in the Nunavut territory.
This map will finally legitimize the Flat Earth Theory in the eyes of the world. Therefor, there will be opposition to this expedition. The CSA, also known as the Canadian Space Agency, has been informed of this expedition via their spies amongst the Flat Earth Society. In response, they have given their agents a new directive; eliminate the Flat Earthers by any means necessary!
Upon arrival at the wastes, two members wander away from the group with the intent of photographing Canada's beautiful countryside.
They're promptly captured by the CSA agents, sent to a nearby CSA compound, and hilarity ensues. They're subjected to a sequence of inhumane experiments, some of which involve a penguin's dick and a barrel of radioactive waste.
This unholy combination mutates them into a strange hybridization of penguin and man, and gives them the ability to morph into a horrific monster at will.
They use their newfound strength to break free of the compound, and they return to the group.
Will the Flat Earthers finally find their map? Or will they be reduced to a pile of charred and/or devoured corpses, forgotten in the frigid wastes?
...
Now that that's out of the way, let's talk game mechanics.
There's going to be 2 CSA agents, and two werepenguins.
(This is subject to change depending on the number of participants, though.)
The baddies can either both scan people to discover their alignments, or they can kill a single person.
The one sending the kill pm alternates each night.
The only way for a agent or a penguin to die is by lynching, unless said otherwise.
The roles superceed the rules, in other words.

Days and nights last 24 hours each.

During the day, the villagers can vote to lynch a living player. A majority wins. Someone can also vote to cancel another’s vote. Whoever has the most votes when the day ends dies. If there is a tie, no one dies.

If a character wishes to commit suicide, they do not require a vote, they can do it to themselves instantly. Any votes for them to be lynched are immediately cancelled, and those that did so are free to vote again. This option is only open to villagers, and is only available should there be fewer villagers remaining than the total sum of penguins and NASA agents. Anything you want me to know should be in square brackets [] so I don't miss it. Eh, make 'em bold, too.

Dead players may only post at night, but can be communed with via pm at any time.
When someone dies, it is revealed whether they were a penguin, CSA agent, or Flat Earther; any special roles are the ghost’s to reveal or not.

You can lynch the narrator if you want, I guess. There's really no penalty for doing so, unless the game devolving into madness is considered a penalty.

If I left anything out, or if anything is unclear, feel free to let me know.

This game is heavily inspired by Jane's and Jura's, so give 'em a round of applause!

There's no limit on the number of roles available. For all you know, everyone might be the wildcard. ;)

Flat Earther only roles:

1. Wildcard - The wildcard wants the flat earthers to lose. They are a despicable person, and will be pm'ed everyone's roles to be used as cover.

2. Empath - Attunes themselves to a target each night and learns that target's role, much like a psychic. If their target is killed, however, they die too. If they locate a penguin or CSA agent they're too traumatized to use their power again.

3. Psychic - A player with mystical powers, gifted to them by the almighty John Davis himself! Each night, the psychic can ask for the alignment of another character.

4. Lovers - The lovers are hopelessly in love. They know the identity of the other lovers. If a lover dies, than the remaining lover commits a murder-suicide.

Shared CSA, penguins, and flat earther roles:

1. Bodyguard - At the end of each day, the bodyguard can pm me a name. That person will not be killed during the night. This ability can only be used once, as after use the bodyguard is too injured to use their power again.
If the person the bodyguard is protecting is attacked by a baddie, the bodyguard learns the baddie's identity.

2. Alchemist -  The alchemist dabbles in the lost arts of alchemy and magic. They can choose someone to regain the use of their power. This only works once. For example if a bodyguard has already used up their power, the alchemist can give them a usage of the bodyguard power back. This ability cannot be used on a thief.

3. Thief - At any time, the thief can either steal someone's role.
The person who has been burglarized will be informed of the theft, but not the thief's identity.
The thief cannot steal an alignment.

4. Hypnotist - The hypnotist can prevent someone from using their power for the next block of time. For example, they would pm me during the night with a name, and that person will not be able to use their power for that day. Same goes for the night. This will stop a CSA or penguin from killing anyone, but not scanning anyone.

5. Scam Artist - During the day, the scam artist can pm me a name (even the narrator!). Two votes will be cast for that person. There is a 25% chance that they're caught, however the votes still go through. If they're caught, the ballot box will be too closely guarded to be tampered with again.

6. Amateur Vigilante - May kill one person at any time, all they need to do is pm me. This kill will be put into effect as soon as I see the pm, so prepare for your plans to be wrecked at the most inopportune time.

7. Politician - The politician can prevent a lynching by outing themselves in the thread. They must also give a speech. They prevent the lynching by choosing anyone who has at least one vote directed at them. That person will be lynched instead. If they kill an innocent, they lose this power and there is a 25% chance that they are killed themselves.

Have a question on the vigilante.  Does the vigilante die if they kill an innocent?  It isn't stated in your rules, but was the case in previous games.
Eternal rest grant to him, O Lord; and let light perpetual shine upon him. May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

I should've made this a spoof of werepenguins in general, like how Jason X is a spoof of the Friday the 13th movies.
