Transformers WW. Sign up, rules comments!

Post by jttm80 » Tue Jul 03, 2007 5:34 pm

Wow, its so quiet in here. Anyone want to sign-up for a WW game?

Transformers WW!

I've decided to go a little different from a typical WW game. No Sorceror, no Hunter. A modified Seer who must pass their ability to a different player each night.

Edit: See example below...

Basic Idea:
2 teams - Autobots, Decepticons (who have infiltrated the Autobots)

At night, each robot secretly decides whether to be a Vehicle or a Robot.

The Autobots share a pool of Energon cubes. Each night, the Seer decides how many cubes to use. Each cube will allow the Seer to view 1 Autobot (i.e. whether in Robot mode or not).

The Seer must pass his/her connection to a different Autobot of choice (yes, the Decepticon's might gain possession of Teletraan-1).

Vehicle mode:
Does nothing
Robot mode:
If Autobot, gain an Energon cube.
If Decepticon, kill an Autobot.

What do you think so far?
Will this work?

1) christianmoura
2) Talespinner
3) Stompy
4) jeff

What's the advantage of gaining cubes?

Why does the Seer need to decide how many cubes to use each night?

Well, instead of a typical Seer asks Is Stompy a Decepticon? Yes No
The Seer will ask Who was a Robot last night?

Example:
Talespinner and Stompy are Autobots
jttm is a Decepticon.

These 3 decide to be in Robot-mode at night (in secret). Everyone else is vehicle.

annawid the Seer decides to spend 2 cubes on Talespinner and christianmoura.

Results:
Autobots get 2 cubes (ala Talespinner and Stompy)
jttm kills off an Autobot.

annawid gets results: Talespinner (robot) and christianmoura (vehicle).

Hopefully that makes a bit more sense.

So the number of cubes the Seer spends = the number of robots revealed to the Seer at night?

Perhaps instead of randomly giving the Seer who were robots the night before, get the Seer to pick who he wants to view. Eg,

annawid spends 2 cubes and views TaleSpinner and Stompy.
She gets TaleSpinner: robot, Stompy: vehicle.

I'm confused as hell as to how this will work, but I'll play.

Okay, I'm happy to give this a shot.

Seer will be a hidden role (as will the person they pass it to), however, since the Seer doesn't stay a Seer, they will probably choose to reveal.

Friggin 'ell. I turn my back for one second and then this. I should have dumped that log on your road in Elfenroads, you pasty-purple elf!
