GAMEPLAY

ONUW is a Werewolf game, but much shorter, taking place over 48 hours with only one night and day phase. Unfortunately this game is only for around 10 players, but you do have a much higher chance of being a special role.

First off is the random draw. Each player will be given one of the roles in the game. The full set of available roles will be listed at this point, but there are always three ‘spare roles’ not used in a game, so players are left guessing as to exactly what roles are in play. Upon receiving your role, I will ask you to reply and acknowledge receipt. Failure to reply may result in AIDS and you may be replaced in the game.
Once all roles have been allocated via private message, it is important that you do not post info about your role until it is DAY TIME. Before that, we have…

NIGHT TIME
There are several roles that are called on to do a “night action”. These night actions include things like looking at other players' roles, swapping other players' roles, and stealing other players' roles. See the list of roles below for specific things that will happen in the night. Not everyone has a night action, and some are given information without having to submit anything to the Gamesmaster.

So, if you are a special role with a night action, you need to reply to the Gamesmaster with your desired action. Once all the replies are in, the Gamesmaster will process them in the following order:
1: DOPPELGANGER
2: WEREWOLF (Only action is to look at spare role if only one wolf in play)
3: MINION is given information based on the WEREWOLVES at this point
4: SEER
5: ROBBER
6: TROUBLEMAKER
7: DRUNK

DAY TIME
After the night phase, players will have approx. 48h to discuss amongst themselves who they believe the Werewolves are. All players may say anything, though it is expected that players on team village wouldn't have a reason to lie. It is normal for players to reveal who they are and what they did during the day phase. The point of the game for Villagers is to piece together what happened. If you refuse to give information, or hang on too long, you will likely draw suspicion. Werewolves might want to claim to be a different role so that they don’t die.

Always remember, that your role is the one assigned to you at the end of the night phase, which may be different than your original role, so you may be unknowingly claiming to be a role that you actually aren't. It is not uncommon for people to play the game thinking they are something else (in fact, that’s part of the fun)

NO PRIVATE MESSAGING. This is an important point, especially for those who normally play the big Wolf games. All communications take place in this thread. There is no point in trying to set up alliances or form teams, the game only lasts 48 hours. Some players will have their roles swapped without even knowing, so it's pointless talking to someone outside of the thread as they may say they are a seer but actually are not at all without even knowing.

Players must then vote for who they want to die by privately messaging the Gamesmaster. All players must have voted within the deadline. Players can change their votes as many times as they like, but once the deadline is up, the vote is locked in.

WINNING
The player with the most votes is lynched. A tie means MULTILYNCH! The win conditions for players are as follows:

- the Villager Team wants to ensure at least one Werewolf dies
- the Werewolf Team wants to ensure no Werewolves die
- the Tanner Team wants to ensure that the Tanner dies

But what if... :
- if both Werewolf cards are in the Reserve, the Villagers must instead kill the Minion
- if all of the Evil team's cards are in the Reserve, the Villagers must ensure that all players receive one and exactly one vote each (you may ignore the Tanner's vote for this)


ROLES

BAD TEAM

WEREWOLVES

Werewolves will be told by email who the other wolf is. If there is only one Werewolf, the werewolf may view one of the 3 spare roles (A B or C) which is useful to help deceive the other players as to your identity.

There are only a max of 2 wolves in this game.

MINION

The Minion is on team Werewolf. The minion knows who the werewolves are (if any), but the wolves don't know who the minion is. If the minion dies and no werewolves die, team werewolf wins. If no players are werewolves, the minion wins as long as one player that isn't the minion dies. This role can be a very powerful ally for the werewolves.


GOOD TEAM

DOPPELGANGER

The Doppelgänger's action is first in order. At night, the Doppelgänger looks at (but does not switch) one other player’s role and does the following based on what they see:

Villager, Tanner, Hunter: Is now that role and does nothing else at night.
Werewolf: Is told who the other Werewolves are and is on Team Werewolf.
Seer, Robber, Troublemaker, Drunk: Immediately does that role’s action
Minion: Is told who the wolves are. She is on the werewolf team.

The Doppleganger's default team is Team Village

SEER

At night, the Seer may either look at one player's role, or at two of the spare roles (A B or C).

ROBBER

At night, the Robber may choose to swap roles, unknowingly, with another player. The robber is told his new role. The person he robbed from will not know they’ve been switched. The robber is then on the team of the role he steals. The robber's default team is team village.

TROUBLEMAKER

The Troublemaker may switch the roles of two other players without knowing their roles. The switched players are now the role and team of their new role, even though they don't know that they’ve been switched, or what role that is.

DRUNK
The drunk is so pissed that he doesn't remember his role. When he comes to wake up at night, he must exchange his role for any of the 3 spare roles (A B or C). The drunk is now that role. He doesn't know what role that is. It is not uncommon for the drunk to lie about his role until he can decipher which side he is actually on.

VILLAGER

Villagers are your usual, dumb, villager. He is definitely not a wolf. There are 3 villagers. He has no special ability.

HUNTER

If the Hunter dies, the player he voted for dies as well (regardless of how many votes that player receives) The Hunter is on team village. The Hunter doesn't know he is the Hunter, he thinks he is a villager, but if the seer looks at him they will be told he is the Hunter.

TEAM TANNER

TANNER


The Tanner hates his job so much that he wants to die. The Tanner only wins if he dies. If the Tanner dies and no wolves die, the wolves do not win. If the tanner dies and and a wolf also dies, the village team win as well as the tanner.

Reading through the rules here, I have a few questions...

1. The robber can steal a role, but if he steals a special role, does he get to perform that special role's power? And does the person he stole it from still get to perform that power?

2. If the troublemaker switches 2 special roles, for example, drunk and seer, who gets to perform those roles?

3. Does the drunk get to perform the role of the card he chose if it was a special?

#1 The special still gets to perform that role, so he won't know he's been robbed.

#2 See above.

#3 No; the drunk is not told his role, so cannot perform the action.

Night-time has begun; roles have been sent. Those who I need a reply from - reply ASAP please. When I have all the replies, the game will star. Only then is chatting here allow.


Rules:
-No speaking in the thread until I declare it is day-time.
-No off-thread communication whatsoever - very important
-No screen-shotting this message to show your roles

I forgot one rule; no editing any post. It's very important that everybody has the same info. If you make a typo/error, quote it and correct it, but don't edit your post.




Also, voting is done by private message to myself, not in here. You're welcome to say in thread who you will vote (and you can lie), but only votes to me count.

We should suspect anyone who automatically says there a non special role villager as they are trying to avoid initial investigation. Thus Traintown and Apollo are suspects.

From what I understood:

-There is only one night and day phase. This means there is no need to protect ones role from further investigation and/or being killed by the wolves. Everybody claim your role and say what you did this night.

-The winning conditions favor us as a village. As a village we theoretically have to make sure to multilynch as many people as possible (up to lets say 7 people for safety). Since that increases the likelihood of hitting a wolf, the only condition for us to win. We can completely disregard the tanner. The only practical problem that will come up, is that of a late changed vote by a wolf to prevent a multilynch which includes a wolf.

P.S.: I am a simple villager

But PS

U could now be any role and so a multi lynch may not favour you if you are no longer a villager.

*Mind blown*

Bad myhand. No editing.

Also: your multilynch strategy is a terrible idea. Any multilynch can easily be thwarted by a wolf if he just votes for someone in that multilynch who is a villager. Granted, he could potentially pick someone who was once a villager who is now on the wolf team because of some night actions, if Dom doesn't inform the wolves of that change, but that seems unlikely to me.

So far, we have 4 people claiming to be villagers. There are only 3 possible from the start, and there are only 4 reasons why someone would claim to be a villager who was not one at the start:

1) Werewolf trying to avoid suspicion (albeit not very intelligently, because Dom told us that with a 10 player game, there would be 3 villagers)
2) Drunk, trying to figure out what side he is on now.
3) Doppelganger, who was switched to a villager and therefore knows that at least one of the other villagers is telling the truth.
4) Robber, who stole the role from someone else.

There can theoretically (unless someone from the village or tanner is lying) be 5 people claiming to be villagers with none of them being on team werewolf.

So therefore every lynch can be a big risk.

Especially if u lynch a tanner or a hunter.

Well, killing the hunter is the only way to guarantee a multilynch...so that would actually not necessarily be a bad thing.
