Discord Werewolf - pandEPIC: The Second Coming - Rules, Roles, Statuses, and Prize!
Many years have passed since the happening. Werewolves infiltrated and destroyed the magical town of Norcciti. They killed or converted all of the residents, took what they wanted, and eventually moved on. Time passed. Nature took back the city. Buildings are now overgrown with plants and wildlife. Bamboo has grown taller than any of the city's walls. Wanderers came and went. Eventually travelers settled. Over time Norcciti was rebuilt. The town was alive again. Then the rumors began, just like before. Fear spreads through the small town with villagers reporting an alarming number of Pandas roaming at night that are then nowhere to be seen during the day. Are the werewolves back? Are they Werepandas? The good folks of Norcciti will have none of it! They have prepared themselves for pandEPIC: The Second Coming.
Above all, this is to be a fun Role Playing Game. Anything that may happen that is or is not defined by the rules may be altered on the fly by BobbyDigi. As this is Discord Werewolf, chat in the public room, PM, Group Chats or by any other means is not only allowed but encouraged. Just remember you may not know who you are talking to.
Please follow the rules about spreading information. In keeping the spirit of fun, do not give any information to anyone, by any means, as a ghost that you did not give out when alive unless allowed by your character and/or expressly allowed by BobbyDigi. For example if you did not reveal your role in the public chat before you died, saying "Oh no! I was the Seer, you're all going to regret that!" is not allowed. Please Please Please keep this in mind when chatting as a ghost and don't ruin the fun by accident. If you have any hesitation about giving information, please run it by BobbyDigi first. If you are disqualified for this, you will not be eligible for the prize.
Goal - Survive. We will play this out until all remaining alive players are on the same team or another win condition is met. All players on the winning team will be considered winners, dead or alive, unless otherwise defined by their role.
Teams and Roles - At the beginning of the game, roles will be assigned and teams based on the roles. The two teams are Werepandas and Villagers. Each player will know their own role and team affiliation and may be aware of information about others at the beginning of the game. Each player may have multiple roles and they may change throughout the game.
Death - People are going to die. It is part of the game. When a player dies, they will be told they are dead but possibly not why or how. Upon death, it will be announced in Discord that the player has died.
Ghosts - When you die, you will become a Ghost. Ghosts lock in their team at their time of death. If a player is killed by their own team, there is a 50% chance of them becoming a Vengeful Ghost and lock in the opposite team. As a Ghost you are allowed to continue chatting with other players by all means but you will not be able to cast votes. As we saw in the previous game, players may gain special powers when becoming a ghost.
Day / Night - The cycles will move forward as I see fit. They will likely last a few hours each and stretch out overnight real time so people don't have to set alarms to play. I'll try to give enough time for chat and votes and real time sleep. The current day or night cycle will be in the Discord chatroom description.
Kill Votes, Day - Each Day cycle, everyone still alive may PM BobbyDigi a kill vote.
Kill Votes, Night - Each Night cycle, everyone on Team Werepanda team may PM BobbyDigi a kill vote.
You can change your vote by simply submitting another vote. The last vote you have sent, when the Day/Night is announced over, will be counted as your vote (Discord Timestamps will be used if needed). Your role and status may affect if your vote actually counts, but you may submit a vote anyways. Any player may choose to not cast a vote. If there is a tie after all mechanics have been considered, the victim will be selected at random from tied players.
Protected - A player is being watched by another player and standard actions may not work as normal and may trigger abilities and actions that would not happen otherwise. The Protected player is told they are being protected but may not be told by who or what.
Ill - At the beginning of each day there is a 50% chance that it will be publicly announced that an ill player is ill. Players who are ill have a 50% chance for their vote to not count. When a player becomes ill, it will be randomly decided a length of 1-3 days before they are naturally cured.
Cursed - Can be on either team as most roles. If they are to be killed by the opposing team, they will be transferred to the other team instead.
Lover - During role assignment, at least one pair of Lovers will be chosen. The Lovers are informed about their love to the other player, but not about their Lover's role. The Love is mutual. If one Lover becomes ill, the other also becomes ill. If one lover dies, the other cannot bear the loss and also dies.
