They tumbled through the white void, terrified and unsure whether they were falling up or down.
Shapes appeared in the whiteness. They flew at the survivors, pummeling them mercilessly, some more than others. The shapes were tiny arrows, most of them pointing up, though some pointed down.
Words began to appear in the void, then … pictures of cats. Then more pictures of cats. So many pictures of cats!
A voice echoed around them. “Welcome. To prove you are not robots, please indicate which of the following pictures contain crosswalks.”
Confused and disoriented, they poked at the images that floated around them.
“Thank you,” said the disembodied voice. “We have sent you an email to confirm your identity.”
“What is email?” asked the possum.
“Thank you,” said the voice. “Identity confirmed. Welcome to my realm, the Divine Immortal Space Quantifying Universal Supremacy. You may call me D.I.S.Q.U.S. Please click here to agree to our Terms of Service.”
“Enough!” screamed Mei. “We’re borked! We’re so f-ing borked!”
Her face turned red in rage, but instead of turning into a red panda as they had all seen many times, this time she took the form of a slobbering creature with several dozen tungsten-carbide vast-pain claws, skin like a motorway, and breath like a 747 jet. She turned and ate the mule at he floated by.
Josephus has died. He was Vanilla T.O.W.W.N.
Horrified (well, not that horrified), the Secret Cabal decided to end the threat of the Beast once and for all. It would not appear again.
Stars (Turning Red) has died. They were the second (and final) Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (Serial Killer).
The void went quiet. The D.I.S.Q.U.S. notifications had broken, because of course they did.
7 T.O.W.W.N. – Wins the game when S.C.U.M. and the Bugblatter Beast are eliminated.
4 S.C.U.M. – Wins the game when the number of S.C.U.M. equals the number of T.O.W.W.N. and the Bugblatter Beast is eliminated. Each night, S.C.U.M. must kill one player of their choice.
1 Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal – Serial Killer, wins the game when all other players are dead. (If Nyarlathotep is in the game, they win as a team if they are both still alive with 5 or less players.)
15 Lamb Dance
23 Side Character
9 Mr. I’m My Own Grampa
Aslan: The day after you are killed, you may comment in the main thread, but you cannot vote.
Wisp: 1-shot “ghost” vote. The day after you are killed, you may cast a vote. Once this “ghost” vote is recorded in the vote tally, it cannot be changed. Other than your vote, you cannot comment in that day’s thread.
Black Phillip: You are immune to being killed by the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal.
Squonk: 1-shot day-kill immunity. The first time you are day-killed, you dissolve into a pool of tears and survive. Your role (but not your alignment) will be revealed at that time.
Chronos: 1-Shot Time Manipulation. During one day of your choice, you may call an early Twilight. The player with the most votes at that moment dies (if tied, RNG as normal.)
Yosemite Sam: 1-Shot Varmint Killer. On any night, you may “arm” yourself. If you do, you kill one player who targets you that night (if multiple players target you, you choose which one to kill). Once you kill one player, your shot is spent.
Dionysus: On any day the thread reaches at least 420 comments, you may cancel all votes against one player of your choice (including yourself) before Twilight.
Cookie Monster: Each night, you must give a cookie to a player of your choice (you can choose yourself). You cannot choose the same player more than once in the game. If the player holding your cookie is day-killed, the cookie explodes and kills a random player instead.
Janus: If two players choose Janus, you will be matched and become Two Faces. You will share a chat and if one of you dies, you both die. You will not know the alignment of the other player.
Illithid: You start the game knowing the identity of one randomly selected Vanilla Town player.
Lord Frith: May target a player each night to learn that player’s role (but not alignment). The SK detects as Nyarlathotep, whether or not that role is in the game.
Black Rabbit of Inlé: May watch a player each night and learn the names of all the players that visit the targeted player, but not what action was used.
Nekomata: 1-shot curse. Once per game, a player you choose must only communicate in cat GIFs for the entire day (except for voting).
Wild Thing: As a night action, you must choose a player (you may choose yourself). The next day, that player must draw a picture of a monster and post it to the thread. It can be an existing monster or an original creation. Each player can only be chosen once.
Nyarlathotep: If you and the SK are both alive when there are 5 or less players, you both win the game together, regardless of your alignment. You and the SK know who each other are, but do not share a chat.
Mogwai: As an optional night action, you may choose one of the following three Mogwai rules. Each rule may only be used once per game.
– Rule 1: Bright Light – Choose another player. If the chosen player is killed that night, you die in their place.
– Rule 2: Get Wet – You create a second Mogwai. If you are targeted to be killed that night, the new Mogwai is killed instead (the kill fails). If the new Mogwai survives the night, it runs off and is out of the game.
– Rule 3: Eat After Midnight – You transform into a Gremlin and you now win or lose with the S.C.U.M., and count toward their win condition. This transition will not be revealed publicly, not even to the S.C.U.M. You will then be told the identities of the S.C.U.M., but you will not be added to their private chat. From this point on, if investigated, you are detected as S.C.U.M.. (If you are already S.C.U.M., this rule has no effect.)
Osiris: Once per night, you must guide a player to the Underworld, protecting them from kills and blocking any actions they have. Cannot target yourself. Cannot target the same player on consecutive nights.
The Invisible Man: Any night action that targets you automatically fails. The player that targeted you will be told you are the Invisible Man. You will not know if you are targeted.
Proteus: When the first non-vanilla player dies, you will inherit their role. If multiple roles die at the same time, you choose which role to take.
Pukwudgie: You are immediately given a random role that was NOT chosen in the draft.
Quetzalcoatl: Must target a player each night to invite to a private Discord chat. This chat persists until one player in the chat dies, then it is closed. If Quetzalcoatl survives, they must start a new private chat the next night.
Gena Crocodile: Each night, you must give a cookie to a player of your choice. Your cookies do nothing.
Tiamat: Each night you may target a player to learn their alignment. The Serial Killer detects as Town.
Psycho Weasel: Each night you may target a player to learn their alignment. You ONLY detect the Serial Killer.
Vidar: If you are day-killed, you may choose one person who voted for you and kill them.
Chupacabra: 1-shot vigilante. If your shot is blocked, it is not spent.
The Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal: Serial Killer. Each night, you must kill one player of your choice.
Day Five will end on Wednesday, November 23 at 12pm PST/3pm EST/8pm GMT.
