WW-Manipulation-Postponed Indefinitely

Post by annawid » Tue Mar 27, 2007 11:53 pm

WW-Manipulation
Manipulation is a game that will end with only one player winning. Full PM rights to everyone.

The concept is simple and everyone starts on an equal basis.

Lynches will be conducted via LHV-Longest Held Vote and night kill will be conducted via PMed orders (which will also use LHV).

Communication will happen during both the day and the night.

The game will end when there are only 2 players remaining. There will be no role reveals.

Eg with 5 players:

Player A:

Major Victory - Alive with Player B
Minor Victory - Alive with Player C

Player B:

Major Victory - Alive with Player C
Minor Victory - Alive with Player D

Player C:

Major Victory - Alive with Player D
Minor Victory - Alive with Player E

Player D:

Major Victory - Alive with Player E
Minor Victory - Alive with Player A

Player E:

Major Victory - Alive with Player A
Minor Victory - Alive with Player B



So the trick is in manipulating the other players to keep you alive. The people whom it benefits you to keep alive will want you dead, whereas the people who want you to stay alive are the people you want dead.

Depending on the number of people, this game won't last longer than N2 or D3 when there would only be 2 players remaining

Players:
Stompy
Talespinner
Jon
Jeff
Doug(waiting for his confirmation before sending out roles)

What is LHV?

If you are player A, you obviously must know who B and C are, but do you know who the other people are? You musn't do, that's the whole point, right?

Longest held vote. When two or more players are tied for most Votes received, the Vote currently in place which was cast earliest is considered the "Longest Held Vote".

Eg:
Jon - Doug(1), Talespinner(3)
Doug - Fernando(2), Christianmoura(4)

Jon will get nightkilled.

So vote as early as you can.

No one knows who the other people are in the beginning. You can reveal your role of course, it might be the truth or a lie.

Eg:
Stompy - steak
Talespinner - garlic butter
DougP - lettuce
Jon - soup
Jeff - bread

Sample PM role:

Doug,
You will get a major victory if you are served up as a side with the steak.
You will get a minor victory if you can at least be a sandwich with bread.

You get a major victory if you and Stompy are the last 2 players
You get a minor victory if you and Jeff are the last 2 players

Of course Stompy might not want to keep you alive as he gets a major victory if he's served as the main course with soup Jon and a minor with garlic butter Talespinner. You will not know this. He will try to kill you as you are working to keep him alive. Lie, backstab, cheat all you want through PMs and forum. If you find out Stompy's role you might even vote Stompy for lynch in the day so that people won't know that he's your major victory guy. Be ready to change your vote though as he may actually be lynched. There's only 1 winner.

I will wait 1 more night for Fernando if he wants to join and we'll start tomorrow. Have a long Day 1 till Monday noon.

All the available roles will be listed. Won't be foods. It'll be SRG/B, i.e. Spoilt Rich Girls/you know what the B is for ;)
