Werewolf 67: A Murder is Announced, Day One

Good morning, fellow genteel detectives. I have spoken with my companion, Cherry Baker, and she will arrive at the estate this afternoon, to ensure everyone’s comfort. I’m afraid I’m unsure of the trustworthiness of the staff on the estate hired by Mister Owen.

As everyone knows by now, there are four Murderers among us. Four cats among the pigeons, if you will. I believe it is absolutely vital that we discover who they are, before all of you are picked off, one by one.

Of course, I don’t know very much about the world. I’m just a simple, little old lady from St. Mary Mead. But as my dear nephew Raymond West would say, I’ve a bit of experience with human nature. And something tells me these murderers are callous and will stop at nothing to get what they want. Which is to kill all of you.

Tea, dears?

Factions:

4 Murderers (Wolves)

16 Genteel Detectives (Town)

All of the Murderers will have roles that come with powers. Those roles are named, and the names are a clue as to the role and power assigned to each Murderer. When a Murderer is killed, I will reveal which role and power he or she was assigned to. I will not reveal the nature of that role/power.

The Murderer roles are:

Dr. James Sheppard
Justice Wargrave
Jane Wilkinson
Mrs Hubbard

Some Town have roles with powers and some do not and are simply vanilla town. These roles are named and the names are a clue as to the role and power assigned to the Town member who receives that role and power. When a Genteel Detective is killed, I will reveal which role and power he or she was assigned to, if any. I will not reveal the nature of that role/power.

The Town roles are:

Hercule Poirot
Chief Inspector Japp
Ariadne Oliver
Colonel Hastings
Tuppence Beresford
Mr. Quin
Parker Pyne
Miss Chadwick
Bob
General Rules:

The game is divided into Day and Night phases. During the Day, all players will meet in an open thread that I will post. By the end of the Day (called Twilight), decide on a player to vote for, if any. A player who receives a majority vote (or who has the most votes by Twilight) will be lynched.

During the Night, all players with powers will submit their night actions, if any, in their personal QTs. At the same time, the Murderers will meet in their own group QT to decide on a target for their Night kill.

Town’s goal is to eliminate all the Wolves. The Wolves’ goal is to eliminate Town, or reduce their numbers to the point where it becomes impossible for Town to eliminate the Wolves.

Please make at least five game-related comments per Day. Non-participation may get you lynched, or worse, replaced.

Only vote in the Vote Thread. No game-related chat after Twilight. And most importantly, NO EDITING POSTS FOR ANY REASON. In this game especially, it is verboten to change a post, even if you’ve made a spelling, grammar, or coding error. If you are caught editing a post, you will be mod-killed.

DAY ONE BEGINS NOW. DAY ONE ENDS AT 1:00 P.M. ON THURSDAY, JULY 26TH, OR WHEN THERE IS A MAJORITY VOTE TO LYNCH.
