Werewolf XXXV: D&D, Day 5: War of the Wolves

If you expect the unexpected, is it really all that unexpected? — Tasslehoff Burrfoot

Finally arriving at the labyrinth, the adventurers examined the entrance, comprised of ancient, rough-hewn stone steps leading down into darkness. Noticing some Elvish words carved above the stairs, Hogarth translated, “‘Wisdom will guide you to what you seek, but even wise men die.’” “Wait, how do you speak Elvish?” asked Holimion. “Well, I’m an Elf vampire, you see,” explained Hogarth. “That just raises even more questions!” Holimion exclaimed. “Less talking, more moving!” Turminder growled, brushing past them to lope down the steps and disappear into the gloom. The others rushed to catch up to him and found him staring at five different grey stone hallways, uncertain which way to turn. The labyrinth was dark and cramped, with damp walls and a pervasive odor that hinted of rot. “Ooh I like this place,” exclaimed Magda. “You would,” muttered Fade. “Shid wae bae splittin’ oop now?” suggested Baern. “No!” everyone else cried, darting nervous glances at one another. Baern rolled his eyes. “Fain, I thin’ we oat ta’ take t’ left oan.” With no better ideas, the rest of the group agreed, and they crept cautiously down the far left passage, Holimion in front, lighting the path ahead with his staff as he continued his argument with Hogarth over the logistics of being an Elf vampire.

Spotting a strange symbol carved into the otherwise featureless wall, Tomine barked, “Sorcerer, shine that light over here!” Holimion turned around, but Hogarth, deep in existential thought, continued on, oblivious to Holimion’s departure, as well as to the thin, almost invisible wire stretched across the path in front of him. As he stumbled over the wire and regained his footing, he looked up just in time to see a wickedly sharp, bloodstained blade swinging slowly but unerringly towards his head. Faced with certain death, Hogarth froze and shouted, “Oh fvck me!” Suddenly, a black-clad madman appeared from further within the labyrinth, capered nimbly past the pendulum as it gathered momentum, and knocked the vampire Elf to the ground, just in time for the blade to swish over Hogarth’s head and barely kiss the back of the stranger’s coat. The newcomer continued down the passage, racing past Hogarth’s shocked companions. He paused at the labyrinth entrance and, before disappearing up the steps, called back cheerfully, “Just this once!”

Remember that, while the Campaign QTs will remain accessible for investigative purposes, players cannot post there any longer. All Town discussions should now take place on the OT.

Note: The rule remains that if a player is targeted for any number of multiple kills on the same night, the kills will be negated (regardless of blocks or save rolls).

*****
Here is a mini-wiki QT with some common terminology and rules used in the Avocado’s version of Werewolf/Mafia. Refer to it if needed, especially if you’re a new player. All players are also encouraged to add to it as they see fit.

You vote by replying to the very first comment, appropriately titled VOTE THREAD. It is easy to find if you sort comments by oldest. To change or withdraw your vote, simply post another reply. DO NOT EDIT OR DELETE ANY VOTE. Only votes posted as a direct reply to the official VOTE THREAD will count.

Note that if the vote is tied at Twilight (end of day), there will be a runoff vote between the tied players, with Twilight extended by one hour. If the runoff vote also results in a tie, another player besides the tied players will be randomly selected for death.

Please make at least 3 posts per game-day, or you may be replaced or mod-killed.

DO NOT EDIT POSTS even if you made a grammatical error that is haunting you. Rather, read through and think carefully about your comment before posting it. Editing a post may get you mod-killed, and that would be sad.

DO NOT QUOTE OR POST A SCREENSHOT FROM A QT TO THE MAIN DAY OPEN THREAD (OT) OR SHARED QT. You are free to make claims about your powers, roles, and alignments, but those claims will not be confirmed or denied by the moderator.

If you have questions that may reveal sensitive information, you can ask them in your individual QT. You are encouraged to ask questions about the rules of the game, how your powers work, and whatever else comes to mind.

Attack arguments, not people. Players have different playing styles; be accommodating to them. Role playing is welcome but not required (though do try to be generally consistent with the setting and your race/class or clan). Finally, remember that it’s just a game, and have fun!
