Werewolves XXIV: Litigation (1st Session)

DO NOT POST HERE IF YOU AREN’T PLAYING.
If you’d like to comment on the game, make a request here and I’ll give you a link to the graveyard QT.

Court’s in session. The honorable Judge Sub V. Subverson presides.
He’s rather dashing in his fine black robe. Not a crease. Not a lint. Not a single thread misplaced. This how you all must conduct yourselves in his courtroom so you are not held in contempt of court.
Please be seated.
The defendant yet to be named has been charged with murder on the high seas and other criminal dealings at the behest of the AvocadoCorp cabal.

Defendant, how do you plea? Not guilty? Thought you would.

This is Werewolves XXIV: Litigation

***

At the end of each day phase, the player with the most votes is named the Defendant for the night phase following immediately. If there’s a tie, the tied player who reached the most number of votes first is selected.

You vote by replying to the very first comment which I have titled VOTE THREAD. It is easy to find if you sort comments to oldest. To change you vote, simply post another reply. DO NOT EDIT YOUR INITIAL VOTE.

The default vanilla QT looks like this:

<blockqoute>You are but a mere Cog in the wheel of time (Vanilla Townie). Unwitting and Unknowing. No matter your profession.

WinCon

– You win if all threats to the town are eliminated and at least one town-aligned player is alive.

Abilities

– You have no abilities save for inclusion in the jury pool but I hear they give those away to pretty much anyone these days.
– Your strength is your vote and your intellect. You must use it to decide alongside everyone else during each day phase on the player to be put on trial and be named the Defendant for the night.

ROLE RUNDOWN*

Juror (Rotates nightly. Known collectively as the Jury.)
At the end of each day phase, 2 out of 3 nightly jurors are selected randomly from the Jury Pool and a third juror is selected by the AvocadoCorp cabal either from their ranks or from Town’s ranks. Each juror and the jury they are selected to serve in is active only during the night phase that immediately follows.
They are then presented a link to a special QT where they may deliberate.
At any time during deliberation, they may each return to their private QT and submit a verdict of [guilty] or [not guilty].

Assistant DA (Town Cop w/ theme-specific modification.)
The Assistant DA submits 2 names each night. If one of the two names belongs to a member of the secret AvocadoCorp cabal, a result of [litigate] is returned. If neither of the two names belongs to anyone who attends the secret meetings of the AvocadoCorp cabal where humans have been known to be hunted for sport or if the Assistant DA is simply roleblocked, nothing is returned.
The Assistant DA cannot submit any of the same names two nights in a row.

State’s Witness (Town Voyeur w/ theme-specific modification.)
The State’s Witness submits the name of one player each night and sees what, if anything, was done to that player during the same night, though they cannot see who did it.
If the player who’s name they submit was targeted that night, a result of [[specific action]] is returned. If the player wasn’t targeted or the State’s Witness was roleblocked, nothing is returned.
The State’s Witness cannot submit the same name two nights in a row.

Pardoner (Town Doctor w/ theme-specific modification. )
On nights when they feel strongly that the defendant is not guilty but is sure to be found guilty by the jury, the Pardoner may submit the defendant’s name and shield them from the brutal winds of justice.
Alternately, on nights when they feel strongly that the defendant, regardless of guilt or innocence, is sure to not be found guilty by the jury, the Pardoner may submit the name of any player they think might be targeted by the Reckless Vigilante during the same night or by the AvocadoCorp cabal the following day.
The Pardoner cannot submit the same name two nights in a row.
On nights when the Pardoner is on trial, they may submit their own name but never on two consecutive nights of being on trial.

Reckless Vigilante (Serial Killer w/ theme-specific modification.)
The Reckless Vigilante takes it upon themselves to enact vigilante justice. Each night, the Reckless Vigilante submits the name of one player. The player cannot be the same player on trial that night.
The Reckless Vigilante cannot submit the same name two nights in a row.

Countersurveillance Expert (Scum Roleblocker for the AvocadoCorp cabal.)
The Countersurveillance Expert submit a player’s name each night to have that player’s night actions thwarted.
A roleblock does not prevent a player from serving on a jury.
The Countersurveillance Expert cannot submit the same name two nights in a row.
The Countersurveillance Expert takes over for the Fixer if the Fixer is eliminated. The Countersurveillance Expert is then able to recruit if the X-shot recruitment has not been used up.

Fixer (2-shot Scum Recruiter and Framer for the AvocadoCorp cabal.)
The Fixer can recruit up to 2 players.
On nights when the Fixer doesn’t recruit, they can target a player and frame them so they investigate that night as antitown to the Assistant DA.

Financier (Scum Godfather and head of the AvocadoCorp cabal.)
The Financier investigates to the Assistant DA as town and actions targeted at them are never visible to the State’s Witness.

Bought – X (Scum Recruit for AvocadoCorp. O initially.)
Once a player has been bought, they are granted access into the secret AvocadoCorp cabal/murder-cult and, except in certain undisclosed cases, they will still be included in the jury pool and can still be selected randomly as one of the first two jurors each night. They can also be selected by AvocadoCorp as the third juror except in certain undisclosed cases.

*Some role-specific info is being withheld for now. Some even from the players assigned those roles.

FACTIONS

Cogs – 12 (Initial tally. Town. Includes all three town roles – Assistant DA, State’s Witness, Pardoner.)
Cogs vote along with everyone else during each day phase on the player to be put on trial and named the Defendant for the night.

AvocadoCorp Cabal – 3 (Initial tally. Mafia. Includes Financier, Countersurveillance Expert and Fixer.)
AvocadoCorp Cabal begins each night by selecting one player as juror.
Together, they have 2 emergency daykills.

Reckless Vigilante – 1 (Reckless Vigilante.)

OTHER INFO

Jury Pool
At the end of each day phase, two jurors are randomly selected from the jury pool to serve on the jury during the night phase and decide on the fate of the Defendant.
They are then presented a link to a special QT where they may deliberate.
At any time during deliberation, they may each return to their private QT and submit a verdict of [guilty] or [not guilty].

Please make at least 3 posts per game-day (36 hours) or you will be replaced.

DO NOT EDIT POSTS!
Rather, read through and think very well about your comment before posting it. Editing a post may get you modkilled and end up hurting your team and the game overall.

A typical day will end after 24 hours unless a majority vote is reached before that. A typical night will end after 12 hours unless all night actions are received before that.

Please ask me any questions you may have in your personal QT. Also, never quote directly from your QT. It is however perfectly alright to quote stuff from this thread in your QT.

Attack arguments, not people. Everyone has a different play-style. Be accommodating to them.
