TWG CVI - Mutiny on the Menagerie!

Postby Jrsthethird » 17 Jan 2017, 17:33:11

Signup thread for the next game!

Here’s the deal: In this game, you’re a pirate sailing the seven seas, looking for treasure. Honestly, everyone expects the life of a pirate to be all excitement, but it can get pretty boring without some companionship. So, along your exotic travels, you and the rest of your crew have all acquired pets to help pass the time. Hence the name of your ship, the Menagerie.

Unfortunately, the past two months have been very miserable. There is unrest amongst the crew and they’re looking to rebel. You’re pretty sure there’s a small faction of you looking to take over the Menagerie and run it for themselves, and they will stop at nothing to do so. With all the bonding between companion and master, it’s hard to trust the animals either. Drastic measures must be taken to save the ship and keep most of the crew intact!

In this game, there will be two factions: crewman (human) and mutineer (wolf). Additionally, each player will be publicly paired with an animal, which are the source of your special powers. The powers that come with an animal can be used just like a normal power, so if your pet is a seer and you have it the entire game, you are always the seer. If the pet dies, you are no longer the seer, and you will receive a new animal, which may or may not have a power.

There will be two lynches and two mauls every day. One lynch/maul for players and one lynch/maul for pets. (Pirates are vicious, right?!) Before the beginning of each day, any players and pets that are not part of a pair will be reassigned, so that killing a player doesn’t necessarily take their power out of play (and vice-versa).

Example:

Player A — Parrot
Player B — Dog
Player C — Monkey

A and C are killed, as well as Parrot and Dog. B will begin the next day with the Monkey, and any information that the Monkey was supposed to report back to Player C with will report to Player B instead (i.e. seer read).

I’m not set on all the roles yet, but if you think this sounds like a fun twist, sign up!

(Also if you’re not playing but would like to help me balance the powers, that’s great too! PM me. ;) )

Start time is Monday, January 23rd.

When are you planning to start this JRS?

Didn't understand this at first, but you mean since the Monkey no longer had a master, it reported to someone else at random. And it won't stay with that person -- every time, or some times?

It will be with the new person until either the player or the monkey dies.

I see rictus has already claimed Dread Pirate Roberts.

Now I either need to pick a different RP or we go all highlander on this bitch.

a) I don't know how you can fit the whole family behind one mask.

b) You should also pick Roberts... then obviously the one who survives the longest is the one true Dread Pirate

As long as there are no ninjas in this one, I'll concede my trademark on pirate games and settle in to play instead.

Look, I've given this a second thought - if I wear a mask, people may question if I was burned by acid or something.

- I mean, I'm sure they're terribly comfortable, and it's possible everyone will be wearing them in the future... but that particular mask won't let my raven locks sway on the ocean's breeze.

And we can't have that.

No Baron Munchausen, Zark? It seems like an avatar/role that would suit both you and this game perfectly.

Thought about it - which lead to a google search on Baron Munchausen Uma Thurman.

I didn't revisit the forum for some time after that
