WW133 – Love Island: Avocado (Day 1)

This video is nsfw

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the newest Season of Love Island ! This summer, you’ll be staying in the famous Avocado Villa with other stunning singles from The Avocado. During this time you will have no contact with the outside world. The Public will be watching your every move to decide who is their favorite couple. The favorite couple will be awarded the fifty-thousand pound grand prize. 

Instead of a day kill vote, you will be coupling up into pairs before Twilight. You may either select a specific person to couple up with or enter the RNG Pool to be randomly assigned into a Couple with a fellow Islander. Good Luck!

The Rules of Coupling Up:

  • If you would like to couple up with someone specific, you both must submit each other’s names into the Couple Thread.
  • If you would like to enter the RNG couple pool, please submit “RNG Pool” into the Couple Thread.
  • Anyone who has not indicated a selection before Twilight will be automatically entered into the RNG Pool.
  • Once you have submitted your selection, you cannot change it.
  • The Confirmed Couples List will be updated as couples are submitted.
  • Couple QTs will go out after Twilight.
  • Since we have an odd number of players, whoever is single after Twilight has night kill immunity tonight.

Right now, there are 23 Islanders in The Villa.

The 6 Islanders with asterisks next to their names have not yet arrived in the Villa and are considered Islanders in Reserve. The 29 possible roles listed below have been pre-assigned to the 23 Islanders in The Villa and the 6 Reserve Islanders. Roles held by these Reserved Islanders and are included in the role count listings below. In the case that someone needs to back out, their alignment will not be revealed. Instead, the backup slot will first be offered to the Reserved Islanders who will enter the villa with their pre-assigned role.  

Islanders in Reserve: 

  1. Cop*
  2. Side*
  3. Dicentra*
  4. raven*
  5. Dictabird*
  6. Mustard* 

Islanders in reserve cannot post in the game thread and cannot be selected for partnering up. Once an Islander has entered The Villa, the asterisk by their name will be removed.

Couple Mechanics

  • Whenever a new couple is formed, a new private QT is created for them at Twilight.
  • Couple QTs  are active as long as couples stay together.
  • If a couple breaks up, their QT is defunct. Any posting activity in a defunct couple QT will result in a mod kill.
  • Night kills are specified by targeting one player but may result in Couple Deaths.

Role Descriptions & Win Conditions

Win Conditions

The Final Vote triggers when either (a) only three couples are left standing or (b) all scum have flipped (whichever happens first). All players in the Villa will vote to determine the final couple. Final couple conditions:

  • Town/Town: Town Victory
  • Wolf/Wolf: Wolf Victory
  • SK/SK: Shared SK Victory
  • Scum/Vanilla Town: Scum victory
  • Scum/Still Bulletproof Town: Town Victory
  • ???/Firecracker: see Firecracker role description
  • SK/Wolf: The Public will vote to decide the victory.

About the Smarty Pants (Town Backup)

If roled town is killed or recruited by wolves before Night 3, the town backup will inherit that role. 

About the Scouted Islander (One-Shot Bulletproof)

As long as this player is bulletproof:

  • If this player is targeted for a night kill, the killer(s) will be notified that their shot was blocked.
  • If this player’s partner is targeted for a night kill, they will not die.
  • If the Firecracker attempts to break up with this player during the day thread, only the Firecracker will walk off.
  • If this player is still bulletproof and part of the final couple, they may block a scum victory.

Once this player is no longer bulletproof, they will function the same as Vanilla Town.

About the Firecracker (Vigilante+)

This is a modified Vigilante role. This player has the ability to publicly break up with their partner during the Day cycle on the main game thread. They must do this as their RP character in the main game thread. Tag both Jam (@jammoritarty:disqus) and Lutair (@lutair:disqus). Once they publicly break up with their partner, an Early Twilight is triggered and this takes the place of a day kill. Both partners in the couple are then day killed (unless Vig’s partner was bulletproof). 

The Firecracker is part of the final couple and choose to use their power, they will break up with their partner. If their partner is scum, this results in a town victory. If their partner is town, then no one wins. They are not required to use their power as part of the final couple.

About the Serial Monogamist (Investigator)

The investigator will be notified in their private QT if their partner throws a red flag. This notification only happens once, taking place at the time the Couple QT is created at Twilight.

  • Red Flags: Firecracker (One-Shot Daytime Vigilante+), Do-Bits Society (Wolves), and active Clout-Chasers (SK)
  • No Red Flags: Regular Islanders (Vanilla Town), the Scouted Islander (One-Shot Bulletproof Town), and inactive Clout-Chasers (SK) 

About the Clout-Chasers (Serial Killers)

The two serial killers are independent, but will take turns killing each night as long as both are in The Villa. SK1 will be active on odd-numbered nights and SK2 will be active on even-numbered nights. If only one SK is in The Villa, they will become active every night. An active SK must kill on their active nights. A dead SK will be revealed simply as a “Clout-Chaser”. Their identity as SK1/SK2 will not be specified. SKs cannot kill each other directly, but may kill each other indirectly through targeting their partner. If one SK targets the other, they will be notified that their action was “blocked”. 

About the Wolves (Members of the Do-Bits Society)

All wolves are individually vanilla, but the faction has a collective one-shot recruitment ability. Recruitment proceeds before town roles and can therefore be used to block a role power. Recruited roled townies and SK will lose their powers. If the Town Backup is in play, they will inherit lost town powers. Successful recruitment will be indicated in the next day’s header by a change in the wolf count. Unsuccessful recruitment will not be indicated. The recruit is added to the wolf chat at the start of the next day.

Rules

  • RP is optional, but appreciated!
  • Please try to make at least 2 posts a day. If you’re in a situation where you can’t reach that requirement, please notify me in your QT! 
  • Do NOT Screenshot or quote directly from your personal QT. This will result in an instant mod kill.
  • Do NOT screenshot your couple QT. However, you may directly quote from your couple QT.
  • Do NOT edit or delete any posts without mod permission both in the game thread and in your QTs.
    • Any accidental leak of your IRL name or email will be automatically deleted by mods to protect your privacy. The contents of those posts will be copied and reposted by the mod and you will be indicated as the author by your screen name.
  • Do NOT belittle other players for their choices or reasoning. Attack arguments, not people. This is especially critical in this game.
  • Emotional appeals are discouraged as arguments since we don’t want to guilt people for their votes.
  • This is the only thing I will say regarding eavesdropping: “All activities on Love Island are filmed, but only clips with names redacted from the previous day/night may be aired.”
