Axelrod: you are Prince Charming, town Jack of all Trades.
You have 3 one-shot abilities that you have to use in this order (you can choose to not take an action):
cop: Target a player. Learn their alignment.
watch: Target a player and learn who else targeted them that Night.
track: Target a player and learn who they targeted that Night.
TheRealStinkyJoeTerry: you are the White Horse, town targeted Angel.
Each Night, you can target a player. If that player would die that Night or be lynched the next Day, you will die or get lynched instead.
You know that Prince Charming is in the game and played by Axelrod.
Highroller: you are Bird, town voyeur.
Each Night, you can target a player. You learn what abilities were used on that player, but not who used them.
Grapefruit21: you are Happy, town Neighborizer.
Each Night, you can target a player. You will be able to chat with that player for a full Day/Night cycle, starting the next Day.
Rodemy r. Ampharos: you are the huntsman, town vanilla.
ZeDorkSlipeur: you are Turtle, town vanilla.
silvercrys3467: you are Sneezy, town vanilla.
Dkingsland967 r. xX_WakeMeUp1337_Xx: you are Dopey, town vanilla.
Vaimes: you are Bashful, town vanilla.
CropCircles42: You are the Queen, mafia Rolecop.
Each Night, you can target one player. You will learn their role.
Jackrito r. Cayvie r. Sir Chris: You are the Mirror on the Wall, mafia Mirror.
Each Night, target one player. Actions targeted at you will target that player instead.
Prophylaxis: You are the Poisonous Apple, mafia Even-Night 1-Shot poisoner.
Once during the game, on an Even numbered Night, you can target a player. That player will die at the end of the next Day phase.
I think the setup was well balanced. I do regret giving Terry Axelrod's name because with mafia having fake claims, that was close to a cop check.
In my original draft, The Prince and the Horse were a neutral faction that would leave victorious when the apple dies (flavor-wise the prince would run off to go and make an antidote for Snow White's poison). I wanted to keep the tie between the two, but maybe I shouldn't have done that.
Apart from that, Mafia was just unlucky + not careful enough with their Night Actions. They never gave any thought to where the mirror should target and Highroller managed to see it twice; Axelrod saw it in his watch shot. The combination of the Voyeur and Watcher seeing the mirror doomed Sir Chris mechanically AND confirmed Highroller as town.
The roles of Highroller, Grapefruit and Terry were all designed to be lyncheable. Axel townconfirming the Neighborizer + Highroller seeing the mirror AND Neighborizer confirmed way more town roles than I expected, but that could have gone completely differently too, which shows strong town play and careless mafia play when it comes to Night actions.
The drawback of that is very slow Day phases. Scumhunting was on a low pitch most Days because of the mechanical outs we got: CropCircles outed himself with his fake claim and became an auto lynch Day 2; Sir Chris was seen using a Night action and claimed vanilla Day 3. And then the game went into auto-POE with only 3 lynch candidates, of which Amy was being townread almost universally.
I am awarding MVP to Highroller: He's the first and arguabely only one to see through Proph's bussing tactics AND managed to get mechanically cleared with what is a very weak role.
I said it in discord already, but want to repeat this: I have loads of respect for our regular hosts. Hosting was a lot more intense than I anticipated and I will think twice before doing it again.
I also want to thank Osie, Bur and Sloth for the help with votecounts, Day ends etc. and Vaimes for providing me with the votecount links.
And Eco for trashing my original setup and help with tweaking the game to what it was now.
Neutral Prince Charming - Sheriff (cop with 1 vig shot)
Neutral Horse - Angel (auto-protecting Prince Charming)
The Neutral faction leaves the game victorious when the Poisoned Apple dies.
Town Huntsman - Tracker
Town Turtle - Bulletproof
Town Bird - Commuter
Town Happy the Dwarf - Post Restriction Vanilla (This game idea comes from the time where the atmosphere in most of our games was pretty sour and I wanted a role that had to be happy all the time, using happy words in every post)
Town Sneezy the Dwarf - Vanilla
Town Bashful the Dwarf - Vanilla
Town Dopey the Dwarf - Vanilla
Kip: I’m hungry!
Chip: We’re out of chestnuts.
Kip: There, a stack of leaves. I bet there’s something yummy underneath!
Chip: Let’s have a look.
Kip: I found something!
Chip: Not something, someone. Isn’t that…
Kip: It’s Grumpy! He’s not moving!
Chip: But if this is Grumpy, then…
Kip: The Grumpy we just saw isn’t real!
The knowledge of the truth breaks the spell. A whirlwind engulfs Grumpy and moments later he is gone. Where he stood, an apple lies on the ground.
Prophylaxis has died. They were:
Poisoned Apple – Mafia one-shot even-night Poisoner
Kip and Chip are observing the scene from a tree.
Snow White, Prince Charming and all 7 dwarves lay motionless in their caskets.
Highroller, Bird, Town Voyeur, sits on the shoulder of Ampharos, Huntsman, Town Vanilla.
A tear rolls down the Huntsman's cheek.
Kip: It’s so sad.
Chip: I know.
Kip: I wish there was a way to bring them back.
Chip: Yes. I miss them all. The dwarves' song when they go work in the mines, Snow White's innocence, Prince Charming's and his Horse... even Turtle is gone.
Kip: So do I. But at least we still have each other.
Chip: I... I think I love you Kip.
Kip: I love you too Chip.
Chip: I.. can I... kiss you?
Chip and Kip close their eyes, lean towards each other and share a kiss.
The Huntsman, leaning over Snow White's casket, startles in surprise. Snow White's chest starts moving. She's breathing again.
Soon after, her eyes open. The Huntsman opens her casket and helps her out.
Snow White, seeing that all her friends are still in a coma, bursts out in mesmerising song.
Revitalised by Snow White's melody, everyone awakes from their coma and life is restored to Turtle and the White Horse.
True love saved the day and everyone lived happily ever after.
Snow White mafia ended in a town win!
Congratulations to Ampharos, Highroller, Grapefruit21, silvercrys3467, Axelrod, Vaimes, TheRealStinkyJoeTerry, xX_WakeMeUp1337_Xx and ZeDorkSlipeur!
Big thank you to Ampharos, xX_WakeMeUp1337_Xx, Cayvie and Sir Chris for replacing in.
That was really fun! Thanks Rhand! Glad we were able to get that off the ground after the long signup process!
So wait, if Prince Charming had survived, would we have gotten the Best Ending?
Yes. In the original setup he and his horse were a neutral faction, and a town + neutral win was the perfect end. I had all the flavor prepared for that setup but then Eco came in as second reviewer and a lot changed.
That’s why some errors slipped in death scenes like ZDS showing as bulletproof and you as commuter. Those were your roles in the original setup.
I did prepare a whole new end scene yesterday, but Osie didn’t know.
Heck, I’ll just post it anyways
Kip: I'm sad.
Kip: The sound. It's different. Something is missing.
Chip: The woodpecker is pecking, the nightingale is singing, the leaves are rustling and the waterfall is clattering. Everything sounds normal.
Kip: And yet something is not there.
Chip: I think I feel it too. But what?
Kip: It's the laughter! The laughter is missing!
Chip: Oh no.. that means...
Grapefruit21 is in a coma. They were Happy, Town Neighborizer
The body of Happy is soon discovered and put in a casket close to Snow White’s.
It is now Day 5. Deadline is Sunday, October 25th, 7pm GMT+1
Chip: Are you all right?
Kip: Cough cough cough
Chip: Kip! What's wrong?
Kip: I have a cough dry throat.
Chip: Yes, the air is a bit more dry than usual it seems.
Silvercrys3467 is in a coma. They were Sneezy, Town Vanilla
Sniffing the air, Kip and Chip manage to find a clearing in the area with more moist in the air. Sneezy must have passed out recently.
The dwarves come and pick up the body to place it in a casket close to Snow White’s.
Night 4 starts now. Night actions are due by 1 PM EST (7 PM Rhand time) on Sunday, October 18th, and Day 5 will start about 1 hour after that.
DO NOT TALK IN THE THREAD DURING THE NIGHT PHASE UNLESS YOUR ROLE STATES OTHERWISE.
Kip: Snow White was such a lovely lady!
Chip: She always had a nice stash of chestnuts.
Kip: I overheard she was in love!
Chip: I know. With Prince Charming.
Kip: This Prince Charming?
Chip: Yes, that's the one.
Kip: The one under the tree here?
Chip: Yup, that's him.
Kip: The one that could wake her up with a true love's kiss?
Chip: The very one.
Kip: Very sad that he's in a coma too then.
Axelrod is in a coma. They were Prince Charming, Town Jack of all Trades
Soon after, the dwarves arrive at the scene and put Prince Charming in a casket next to Snow White's.
It is now Day 4. Deadline is Friday, October 16th, 7pm GMT+1
Sir Chris (5) - Prophylaxis, Ampharos, Vaimes, Highroller, Axelrod
Not Voting (3): Grapefruit21, Silvercrys3467, Sir Chris
Day 3 end
Kip: Do you see what I see!?
Chip: Yes, it’s Sleepy. Sleeping on the job as usual.
Kip: He should be helping to find the culprits. Let’s wake him up!
Both: Sleepy! Wake up! You have work to do!
Chip: He doesn’t react. Something is wrong.
Kip: He isn’t sleeping, he is in a coma!
Chip: Oh no, another victim. Let’s find help.
Kip and Chip jump from tree to tree to find someone to help them.
Kip: There! A dwarf!
Chip: But… that’s Sleepy. He can’t have gotten there so fast.
Kip: We’ve been fooled!
The knowledge of the truth breaks the spell. A whirlwind engulfs Sleepy and moments later he is gone. Where he stood, a broken mirror lays on the ground.
Sir Chris has died. They were: Mirror on the Wall – Mafia Targeted Mirror
The other dwarves pick up Sleepy and put him in a casket close to Snow White’s.
“Not a big change”, one of them says.
Kip: This is the last time I’m playing hide and seek with dwarves!
Chip: Can’t find them?
Kip: Just one. I found all the others.
Chip: Oh I can guess which one is missing.
Kip: He’s so good at hiding!
Chip: I know, he does it all the time.
Kip: Oh there he is!
Chip: Looks like someone else found him first though.
Vaimes was poisoned and is in a coma. They were: Bashful the Dwarf – Town Vanilla
When the dwarves realize that Bashful won’t be found, they go look for him and find his body. They put it in a casket close to Snow White’s. Night 3 starts now. Night actions are due by 1 PM EST (7 PM Rhand time) on Tuesday, October 6th, and Day 2 will start about 1 hour after that.
