2: I like your new avatar, but why did you change it, though? :P
And the moral of the story: Quit while you're a head.

TWG 54: Game of Wolves
An elaborate 14-player mystery based on the TV show Game of Thrones.

The mythical world of Westeros is a land divided; seven noble houses rule the seven kingdoms of the continent. They feud, form alliances, backstab and plot against one another. A human player might get benefits from healing his allies and from killing his rivals. But will petty human in-fighting distract them from the real enemy—the white walkers, an ancient legion of creatures as ruthless and cruel as winter itself?

Every player (probably) will get a role which is aligned with a certain house. The other members of that house will be their allies, and the members of certain other houses will (probably) be their enemies. They will get benefits depending on what they do to those allies and enemies. But they don't know who is who. Despite this, all of the humans all have the same win condition (probably): eliminate the white walkers.

In addition to a role and a house, every player gets a fake role with which to false claim if they desire. White Walkers get two. These roles will feature characters a different allegiance. Now spoiler free! A character list will be provided, listing the name and allegiance of every real and fake role in the. You don't need any familiarity with Game of Thrones or A Song of Ice and Fire to dominate either, since most of the roles' powers don't match up very well with their character.

And it's still a mystery game. Be prepared for twists, random mechanics, and other disasters to gum up your best laid plans.

Character List

There are 28 characters in this list, but only 11 of them are actual roles in this game. The other 17 are false roles given to players and White Walkers to allow them to false claim more easily. This lists each of those roles (real or fake) by their house allegiance, if any. Try not to make too many assumptions about the make-up of the game based on the list or your role PM; I peppered the game description with (probably)s for a reason--it's tricky! The White Walkers may not even be red! They could be white or something! Characters from this list were selected to be in the game at random, rather than based on their importance.

I'll edit this list with descriptions later on!

Here's a sample of what the roles in the game will be like, as well as the powers.

QuoteYou are Abraham Lincoln!
Alliance: Republican Party
Enemies: Democrats

Abraham Lincoln was very tall. Also he had a top hat! He abolished slavery or something with the Emancipation Proclamation and was born in a log cabbin.

Log Cabin: The power of log cabins gives Lincoln the ability to withstand one attack from the wolves.
Emancipate: Anyone being controlled by another role (vote control or power control) is freed from that control, and the controller dies. Single use.
Tallness: Your vote counts as 2. Counts as 3 vs. Democrats.



THIS GAME LOOKS TOO COMPLEX FOR ME, WHAT DO I DO?

Get over it, that's what! You just played two simple games in a row, and now you want another one? It's not even going to be that hard to understand. You don't have to figure everyone's roles or alliance out. You just need to find the wolves.

This would be NSM's FIRST MYSTERY GAME. Can you believe that? 53 games without a mystery? Well let's not make it 54. Together we can make history.


ALSO EVERYONE WHO VOTES FOR THIS GAME GETS ONE MILLION DOLLARS AND A FREE HAT

Let's make it 54 guys. Game of Wolves pshh!

How about being trapped in a mythical forest with people you have no idea about! All you know is that some of them are werewolves... Mystery things will happen in the game that you will have never seen before!

The game will feel real, you won't want to die! You won't want your friends to die!
