WW67: A Murder is Announced, Day 4

Good morning, fellow genteel detectives. It appears that we have lost another during the evening. So sad, as this time it was that delightful American teenager. I’m always sad to see the young go. Seems so unnatural. And despite her questionable antecedents, she seemed a nice thing. It was odd how she kept sneaking around at night looking for hidden staircases, but that may just be an American tradition. Her friends over there, yes, the silly plump pretty one, and the practical one who clearly an expert in Sapphism, seem quite bereft. Let’s try to support them, shall we? They found poor Miss Drew in the larder, a rope about her neck.

Someone take them a cup of tea.

Marple 2

The Hayes Code has died. The Hayes Code was VANILLA TOWN.


3 Murderers (Wolves)

11 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

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. Please do not change any post, even if you’ve made a spelling, grammar, or coding error. If you are caught editing a post, you will be mod-killed.
