Werewolf 60 – Psychonauts – Day 1

Things have been… strange lately, at Whispering Rock Psychic Summer Camp.

The intercom towers have stopped broadcasting announcements like “Tuna salad today!” and started broadcasting announcements like “You kids think it’s so funny to pull my helmet off. Oh, sure, mess with Coach Oleander! He was too short for the Army! He was too short for the Navy! He was too short for culinary school! What’s he gonna do? HARVEST OUR YOUNG BRAINFLESH TO POWER A PRIVATE ARMY OF PSYCHIC DEATH TANKS?

So that was a weird lunch.

The images in all of your dreams… they mean something. The meat… the teeth… the tower of thorns. Until finally… he appears to you all in a vision. The former camp dentist… Dr. Loboto, D.D.S.

“My diagnosis of your mouth is that it contains symptoms of mental insanity,” he informs you all. “Would you prefer orange or bubblegum toothpaste while I extract your brain cavities?”

“You’ll never extract our brains for the Coach’s evil scheme!” you all scream. “We’re really good at psychic battle! Some of us have four merit badges!”

The dentist just laughs. “You think Coach Oleander needs me to pull those rotted brains out? I just designed the procedure! Oleander has brainwashed four of you into doing it yourselves!”

And, with that, you all wake up. Your counselors missing… your coach determined to harvest your brains for psychic energy… four of you brainwashed to obey him, and two of you driven insane by the pressure. When will you ever find the time to get to first base now?

Begin Day 1.

14 Campers (Town)
4 Mind-Controlled Campers (Wolves)
2 Kissing Campers (SK Lovers)

Game Rules
Wolves do not kill players; they extract their brains for future use. When a wolf dies, if there is at least one currently debrained camper, a brain will be found in the wolf’s possession. The brain’s owner will return to the game, sans any original powers.

Every player possesses Shield, a passive psychic power. Sometimes, your Shield might activate in your sleep if you have a scary dream! If this happens, you cannot be targeted by night actions. Every player has a 1/5 chance of their Shield being activated.

The Coach inadvertently broadcasts many of his evil thoughts on the camp intercom system. Every night, one of his thoughts (a random wolf QT message) is overheard by a random player.

Town Roles
The Clairvoyant (detective) – Sees the world through one other player’s eyes each night
The Paranoiac – Sees everyone as their enemy, including the Clairvoyant (will give a false scum result when investigated)
The Pyrokinetic – Two-shot vigilante
The Bully – Designates a nerd to die in their place. The Bully may only choose a target once, and it is up to them how long to wait. If their target dies before the Bully does, the Bully will have no special protection.

Wolf Roles
The Brains of the Operation – Uses Confusion Grenades to appear as a friend to the Clairvoyant (gives a false town result when investigated)
The Peeping Tom – Can investigate a player each night and see if they used a night action (but not what kind)
The Bubble Boy – Has a one-shot ability to auto-Shield themselves and one other wolf of their choice

Kissing Campers
The Kissing Campers win by eliminating all others. They choose one player to kill each night. If one of them dies, the other will gain a different win condition.

General Werewolf Rules
Game Days will last about 24 hours, unless one player gets a majority of all votes before then. In the vote thread (sort by Oldest) you may vote for any player, or for “No Lynch”. If there is a tie, one of the top vote-getters will be randomly chosen.

Game Nights will be shorter. If you have a night action you may or may not use (for example, the Pyrokinetic and Bully), please let me know if you are choosing not to use it.

Please try to make at least 3 game-related comments per Day.

NO EDITING OR DELETING for any reason including typoes. To change your vote, make a new comment in the vote thread.

Directly quoting or screenshotting QT is not allowed. However, players who receive overheard intercom messages may quote them.

Be nice, have fun, it’s a silly game!
