Welcome! Due to hostile takeover the request of J, the place for sorting through all of the werewolf games is being replaced and switching owners. The old organization thread is here. It's still there. Ooh, the rich history. Look at it. Bask in it. To those of you who misclicked on your way to the Moderators thread... Hi! Ever seen one of these games before? Last Will & Testament? Murder at Monocon? Cough cough Unfairwolf? If you're confused, look no further! Our very own @Pyure wrote a guide that I'm totally not ripping from the old thread. Spoiler: The Basics of Werewolf In a werewolf game, players are divided into 2 or more groups. These are generally "good guys" (villagers) and "bad guys" (wolves) although these names and their composition will vary from game to game. There will typically be an approximate ratio of 4 villagers to 1 wolf.] Players are usually assigned further into "roles". Roles can vary greatly from game to game, and frequently have "powers" or other rules assigned to them. Some standard examples include: Seer: Every night can divine someone's true identity (Will message the GM (person running the game) and say "Tell me Bob's identity tonight") Bodyguard: Can opt to protect a person from being killed at night, sometimes at risk of their own life (Will message the GM and say "Would like to protect Bob tonight") Note that these roles may exist by different names or slightly varied rules. Additionally, there may be more than one player assigned to a given role (there may be two seers, or three bodyguards.) The players are not (usually) told beforehand how many of each role are present in the game. When the game begins, the wolves all know who each other are. They will have a private conversation where they can coordinate and strategize with each other. The villagers on the other hand will have no idea who anyone is and must try to figure it out as the game proceeds. Every day the town (villagers + wolves) have to vote on who they're going to lynch (kill, remove from game). The wolves are generally going to try to guide the voting so that a villager is lynched. The villagers will be trying to identify and lynch a wolf. This process involves a lot of bitching and arguing and lying and debating. Players will be having sneaky conversations pretending to be this role or that and generally trying to guide the voting their way. At the same time, the wolves privately vote on one player to kill, who will typically (and obviously) tend to be a villager. At the end of the 24 hour period, the GM goes over the day's activities. Depending on the rules, they'll tabulate the votes, kill someone via a lynch, kill someone via the wolves, and smite (kill) anyone caught breaking the rules. Then the next day starts. (A game day usually reflects a real-life day, and begins and ends at a time of the GM's choosing.) The game ends when any preset victory conditions are met (all the wolves are dead, all the villagers are dead, etc). Mmm, tutorials. The illustrious GM runs the game. You could be one, reader! Yes, you! You just need to be a competent player with a few games under your belt. Ask nicely here in this thread and you'll be right on your way. It's easy! Just look at these clowns.

Wow, there it is! Right below. Hopefully. Spoiler: Current Game List fetish? You came to the right place. Here, have a GM queue. Spoiler: Future Games *lone tumbleweed* Note! If you're strapped for ideas, look up one of our older games (See "Past games") and re-run it. Make sure to check with the original creator first, if they're still active. Note 2! If all else fails, run a concept game. Take a base of pretty generic roles (like ToS Classic mode), then apply one rule that's worth testing (i.e. "No networking", "Each convo must have three players", "In addition to normal win conditions, a player must survive to the end to win", etc.) Note 3! There's a section for filler games under "Tools for GMs". Go check in there. More you say? Boom, basic manners. I'll paraphrase J to make this thread slightly original: Bandwagoning. It's when you vote for someone because someone else has voted for them. Think for yourself, reader. Antismiting is when you vote for someone for the sole purpose of avoiding a smite for that day. It's alright, we know you're busy sometimes. Life happens. Just make sure your vote's on someone in no danger of being lynched. Throw out a reason with your vote! Preferably a good logical one. If you don't like the guy, make up something to justify your death sentence. Tell a story about how his great uncle Marvin once insulted your family. Does it matter? Go for it. Ghosting! It's when you talk in the thread after you die. Some GMs are stricter about it than others cough Vikestep, but it's usually frowned on when overdone. The general rule is to leave out any useful information and drop an "OOoooOoooOooo" with your post. Don't act like a wolf if you aren't one. You'll be lynched and complain about it when you're dead. Tough luck. This is a thing now. It's stuff for people with games. I'm descriptive. Spoiler: Tools for GMs Random.org Role randomization!
