Steven Miller glided through the halls of the White House-by-the-Sea, reflecting smugly on one of his smaller but most satisfying accomplishments, convincing Eric Trump that it was his own idea to change the name from Mar-a-Lago. As if “Er-Bear” ever had an original thought in his life, Miller sneered, though of course his face reflected only its usual eerie nothingness. Suddenly, he paused. He smelled blood. He opened the door to a nearby storage closet and found Six’s broken body. He leaned down to check her pulse but felt nothing. What a shame, he mused. She had good gen – His thoughts trailed off abruptly as he felt a faint thump under his fingers. He stood up and whispered intently, “Bring me the other one.” Around the hotel, six security personnel cocked their heads as if listening, then began to search the property. They found Cleopatra hiding, nearly invisible, in the tall grass near the golf course, crouched over the body of a small, white-tail deer. They stared. “Oh my God, what?” she barked. “Oh this? This is just . . . my community service. They’re major pests you know. #thinningtheherd #lovetheecosystem!” Seeing the implacable look on their faces, she scowled and prepared to attack. “Shoot her!” ordered the head security guard. “Shoooooooot her!”
The Hayes Code / Cleopatra is dead. She was the SQ Printer and a Demesne.
The god king snugglewumps / Six has made a full recovery.
Later that day, a summit participant noticed a maid wheeling a strange contraption out of Cleopatra’s suite. “Let me see that,” they ordered. The maid shrugged and handed over the device. “Neat!” exclaimed the summit participant. “I think I know how this works!”
A new SQ Printer has been appointed. See the updated role descriptions for details, and check your QTs.

Status Quo (Town) Roles
Vanilla Status Quo (Vanilla Town)
Their only power is their vote.
Status Quo Bodyguard (Town Jailkeeper)
The SQ Bodyguard can guard one player each night. The guarded player cannot be affected by a night action and cannot use a night action (if any). The SQ Bodyguard cannot guard themselves and cannot guard the same person two nights in a row.
Status Quo Reporter (Town Investigator)
The SQ Reporter can ask their sources for information on one player per night. The investigation will return a result of [Activist] / [Status Quo] or [unpaired] / [Prime] / [Demesne] (note that Activists and Status Quo members can be unpaired, Prime, or Demesne; Dr. Jameson will always return a result of [Status Quo], even if recruited by the Activists). The SQ Reporter can investigate the same person two nights in a row (results may vary).
Status Quo Printer (Town Recruiter)
The SQ Printer can make 3D-printed guns. Each day, the SQ printer can gift a one-shot pistol to a player of their choosing. The printer cannot gift a gun to themselves, and the printer cannot gift a gun to the same player two days in a row. A player with an unused gun cannot be gifted another gun. Each gun has a 0% – 100% chance of backfiring (killing the user rather than the target). Starting Day 4, the SQ Printer will know each new gun’s chance of backfiring and can deliver a note with each gun; the gun and note will be all that the recipient receives. The new SQ Printer has all the previous SQ Printer’s info.
Activist (Wolf) Roles
Vanilla Activists (Vanilla Wolves)
Vanilla Activists have no additional power beyond the nightly Wolf kill.
Activist Bodyguard (Wolf Jailkeeper)
The Activist Bodyguard can guard one player each night. The guarded player cannot be affected by a night action and cannot use a night action (if any). The Activist Bodyguard cannot guard themselves and cannot guard the same person two nights in a row.
Activist Reporter (Wolf False Investigator)
The Activist Reporter can falsify an investigation result on a specific player (including themselves) each night. If the SQ Reporter or their target is targeted by the Activist Reporter, the report received by the SQ Reporter will be a lie. The Activist Reporter will know if a false report went through but not the contents of the false report. The Activist Reporter cannot target the same player two nights in a row.
Primes are original humans with clones (Demesnes) at the summit. If a Prime is killed (day or night), their Demesne, if still alive and present, dies instead.
Demesnes are clones of original humans (Primes) at the summit. If a Demesne’s Prime is killed (day or night), and the Demesne is still alive, the Demesne will die instead. Demesnes can attempt to preemptively kill their Prime at night if they want. There will be a 30% chance of tripping an alarm, causing the clone to flee. The alarm will definitely be tripped if the Prime is guarded the night the Demesne attempts the kill. A fled Demesne is in hiding and out of the game. However, if a fled Demesne’s Prime is killed, the Prime dies (with no clone to harvest), and the Demesne returns to the game.
Each Prime/Demesne pair shares a QT. They are told nothing about each other except who is the Prime and who is the Demesne. Primes and Demesnes can be of any primary faction, in any pairing (it’s all RNG [random]).
Players’ factions and roles will only be revealed by the moderator upon their deaths. Faction numbers will be updated daily (fleeing will not affect faction numbers).
Post a minimum of three comments to the OT per game-day (preferably more). Failure to meet the minimum participation requirement will cause a player to be mod-killed or replaced. We do have backup players, so if you find that you don’t have the time or inclination to play after all, no worries! Just say so.
Vote for the daily lynch candidate by replying to the very first comment (sort by oldest), appropriately titled Vote Thread. To change or withdraw your vote, simply post another reply to the Vote Thread. Do not edit or delete any vote. Only votes posted as a direct reply to the official Vote Thread will count.
Do not edit posts, ever, even if you made a grammatical error that is haunting you. Rather, read through and think carefully about your comment before posting it. Editing posts may get you mod-killed or replaced.
Do not quote or post a screenshot from a QT to the Open Thread (OT) or a shared QT while the game is ongoing. You are free to make claims about your powers, roles, factions, etc., on the OT and/or in shared QTs, but those claims will not be confirmed or denied by the moderator.
Do not discuss game specifics with other players outside of the OT or shared QTs. It’s okay to talk very generally about the game or even nudge an absentee player outside of the game, but that’s it.
Do not make gameplay-related comments on the OT after Twilight or once dead (dead players should also refrain from commenting in shared QTs). Fled players may not comment on the OT or in shared QTs at all.
If you have questions that may reveal sensitive information, you can ask them in your individual (private) QT. You are encouraged to ask questions about whatever comes to mind.
Attack arguments, not people. Players have different playing styles and prefer different levels of role play; be accommodating to them. Remember, it’s just a game; have fun, and try not to take it personally if you are mistrusted, accused, killed, or otherwise targeted. Even if players call you scum, they mean game-you, not real-you. Real-you is great.
