The members of the company stood in front of the tower of Orthanc. Isengard lay in ruins, destroyed and despoiled by the strength and power of the Ents.
“Come out!” Gandalf cried, his voice echoing over the wasteland. “I did not give you permission to withdraw.”
Saruman, his own body betraying him, returned to the high window.
“Your staff is broken!”
Saruman shrieked in pain as the thunder clapped around him. He recoiled from the window.
“Is it over?” someone asked.
“He may still be capable of a little mischief, in a mean way,” Gandalf answered.
As they started to withdraw, they saw a glint of sunlight above them, reflecting off a smooth ball of dark glass as it flew from the window, hurled at the people gathered below.
“Palantir!” Gandalf yelled.
In a sort of non-chalant way, it bopped one of the company members on the head. The high elf Evoker, one of the most powerful wizards to ever live, slumped awkwardly to the ground. It was way way way less metal than Thörnn’s death the day before.
Sic Humor (Vaarsuvius) is DEAD. They were Nameless Numenorean Nazgül #1 (INVESTIGATOR WOLF).
Leagues away, in the care of Faramir, the remaining hobbit and company rested for a moment, hidden away in Henneth Anûn. They had determined to take the paths to the pass of Cirith Ungol, much to Faramir’s consternation.
The one-day role of FARAMIR has been activated. Please check your QT’s.
The company had dozed off to the sweet sounds of the waterfall pouring down over the Window to the West. Perhaps that’s why they did not notice the encroaching shadows. Not even the clear-eyed elf.
Platypus (Reaganomicmir, son of Lamborghinimir) has DIED. They were LEGOLAS.
THE FREE PEOPLES (
18 6 Town):
- The Fellowship (2)
Frodo: The ring-bearer. The bearer of the ring is resistant to night-kills. If the ring-bearer is day-killed or corrupted (recruited), the ring passes to the next living non-corrupted member of the fellowship in this line of succession.
Merry, & Pippin: Ring-bearers in waiting. No other powers. Aragorn: Can heal with their knowledge of athelas. Chooses one player per night to heal from night-kill. Can heal themselves. Cannot heal the same player two nights in a row. Boromir: Automatically becomes a Nazgül (Wolf) on Day 3. However, if they are the only remaining living Nazgül, they will revert back to town. This still applies even if they are corrupted (recruited) before Day 3. Gimli: Jailor. May not jail themselves. May not jail the same person two nights in a row.
- Gandalf: If killed, will resurrect on the day of their choosing. Gandalf must be dead one full day before resurrection.
Legolas: Investigator. Results will read NAZGÜL or NOT NAZGÜL.
- NOTE: IF ALL NINE MEMBERS OF THE FELLOWSHIP HAVE DIED OR BEEN CORRUPTED, THERE ARE NO REMAINING RING-BEARERS AND SAURON WINS (WITH AN EXCEPTION IF GOLLUM IS STILL ALIVE).
- NOTE: The ring-bearer is prevented from being night-killed due to the invisibility associated with wearing the ring. HOWEVER, if the ring-bearer role-claims outright, everyone will then know who they are and they will be vulnerable to night-kills. An outright role-claim would include “I’m [CHARACTER]” or “I am the ring-bearer” or some variation on such. The mod will be the final arbiter as to whether the ring-bearer has made such a role-claim. As a result, if someone receives the ring who has already role-claimed, they will also be vulnerable to night-kills.
Eowyn – Attempts to kill one player every night. They are only successful if they target the Witch-King of Angmar.
- Vanilla Town (4)
NAZGÜL (3 Wolves):
- Witch-King of Angmar – can only be night-killed by Eowyn. Can be day-killed like any other player.
Khamûl the Easterling – can attempt to corrupt (recruit) one townie every night until successful. Nameless Numenorean Nazgül #1 – Investigator. Investigation reveals the role of the player. Nameless Numenorean Nazgül #2 – Vanilla wolf.
- One Nazgül Wraith
- One Boromir
OTHER POWERS (
2 1 Alternative Win Conditions):
- Saruman (Serial Killer) – traditional SK win condition (wins if they are left alive at the end with one townie; if the final players left alive are the SK and a wolf, a special ending will occur).
Gollum (Neutral) – If Gollum is still alive at the end for a town win, and Frodo is dead, Gollum wins instead of town. Also, if Gollum is alive and all of the members of the fellowship have died or been corrupted, the ring will fall to them, and the game will continue, although town can no longer win.
There will also be daily, single-day roles that can be assigned to either town or scum. Check your QTs every day to find out if you’ve been assigned a one-shot role.
Night actions will occur in the order that enables the most actions to go through.
