Werewolf Interest Check

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new to this forum, and was wondering if people here would be interested in a game of werewolf/mafia. I will be the GM(Game Moderator). The rules that we'd ideally be playing with are as follows, but I'm open to suggestions. I more or less copy-pasted these from another forum I play on, so if there's any reason these wouldn't work here or if they're too complex for new comers, let me know. 




There shall be up to 17 players. 

The game is divided into two periods - day and night. For practical reasons these two periods take place at the same time, from one update till the next.

Each day, all players gather and decide to lynch one of the players - the person they think is most likely to be a werewolf. Each night, the werewolves decide who to kill. In each 24 hour period, the village will lynch, and the werewolves will hunt.

The werewolves win if they manage to reach parity with the villagers.

There will be one seer who may scan one player each night. He will receive a scan either as "villager" if he scans a villager or "werewolf" if he scans a werewolf.

The villagers and seer win if they manage to kill all the werewolves.

Everyone will get a role PM, the wolves will have a wolfpack PM, any other PMs regarding this game are forbidden.

max of 17 players, which would have the following role distribution. If there are under 17 players who want to play I can adjust the ratios and do a few things.
13 x Villagers
3 x Werewolves
1 x Seer




§1A. - You sign up to the game by requesting so in a post in this thread. Players can and will be disqualified from signing up at GM discretion.

§1B. - No new players will be admitted after the game has started, except to substitute for another player.

§1C. - You may at any time ask the GM by PM to be substituted out.

§1D. - Failure to vote will lead to immediate substitution.

§2B. – Invalid votes (Voting for Game Moderator/Ghosts) will not be accepted and be considered to be in violation of Rule 2A.

§2C. – In the event of a tie all tied players will be executed.

§2D. - The player(s) with the plurality of votes at deadline are considered dead. They will not reveal any inside information after the deadline. The presumed dead player(s) should post in colored text until their true role is confirmed.

§3A. - Orders and votes submitted after deadline are ignored.

§3B. - Orders (scans, hunts, et cetera) are sent to the Game Moderator via PM.

§4A. - Spectators and ghosts may comment, but never suggest a course of action, reveal any new information, including vote counts. Preferably spectators will comment only in a manner tangential to the actual game.

§4B. - When doing ghost/spectator commentary, please use a non-white, non-GM color.

§4C. - A subbed player is considered a ghost when the GM declares him to be subbed and must obey all relevant rules of that status.

§5A. - Alliances and Feuds which aren't based on your characters or roles in the game between players are forbidden. Alliances and Feuds which continue from one game to another undermine the whole idea of the game.

§6A. – The Game Moderator has the last word on all matters.

§8C. - UNVOTEs are not necessary (GM will always count your latest vote) but are considered good manners.

§8D. - Do not edit votes after posting them. If you make a mistake, like not bolding, revote in a new post.

§8E. - Votes should be oversized or clear of other text to ensure they are not missed by the GM.

§9. - The GM can and will remove players if the GM believes the player is not participating at their full capacity. This will be done through the use of killing the player's role, or using substitutes, if they are available. All such decisions are made solely at the discretion of the GM.

§10A - Always trust the GM.
§10B. - Trust no one. Especially not the GM.

§11. – These rules are complete and will not be changed once the game has begun.
