Wangshire: A Game on PA forums based on the Mafia Party game
. These have enjoyed two incarnations so far and are proving to be quite popular in the community.
The First Round
The Second Round
Light Yagami is a brilliant, but bored, high school student who resents the crime and corruption in the world. His life undergoes a drastic change when he discovers a mysterious notebook, known as the "Death Note", lying on the ground in the year 2003. The Death Note's instructions claim that, if a human's name is written within it, that person shall die. Light is initially skeptical of the Death Note's genuinity, believing it is just a prank. However, after experimenting with it and killing two criminals, Light is forced to admit the Death Note is real. After meeting with the true owner of the Death Note, a shinigami named Ryuk, Light seeks to become the "God of new world" by passing his judgment on criminals.
Soon, the number of inexplicable deaths of reported criminals catches the attention of the International Police Organization and a mysterious detective known only as "L". L quickly learns that the serial killer, dubbed by the public as "Kira", is located in Japan. L also concludes that Kira can kill a person just by knowing their face and name. Light realizes that L will be his greatest nemesis, and a race to prove mental superiority between the two begins.
Well, I originally planned this for play after
the mafia themed Wangshire, but I figured since Kriz and I finished drawing up the rules soner than I had expected, and the chaos that has gone down regarding the operation of the current game, this was a good time to provide everyone with a new incarnation of our Wangshire Mafia-based games.
here is the setup:
-DM/GM (whichever term you prefer)
-2 Investigators (default amount)
-Civilians (1 direct Kira supporter [default amount] and Investigator supporters)
All over the world, infamous criminals are dying mysterious deaths. Because of this, Interpol has begun an investigation into the person they believe is behind these strange events, known to the world only as â€œKira.â€ Tracking Kira down to one city, the hunt begins as the two forces hunt each other for the sake of their own ideas of Justice.
the possessor of the DEATH NOTE: by writing the name of a person in the DEATH NOTE, they can kill that person.
For the sake of causing the game to run smoothly, Kira will always have the death occur at the end of a day/round (as there is no way the DM could possibly be on tabs all the time to set the death into effect immediate if this was the case). Also, they can have their victim leave cryptic messages. However, they cannot control the victimâ€™s voting.
There will be a special, challenging surprise that occurs partway through the game
-The Eyes: A mysterious gift Kira may obtain, but at a priceâ€¦
Broadcasts: Kira is able to make one broadcast per day to the players. These will be relayed to the players through the DMs (that is, Kira sends the DM their message, and DMs will post it). The broadcasts are not required to be done each day, and are Pure RP.
Win Condition: Kill off all Authorities investigating the Kira case by using the Death Note, as well as those civilians who stand against Kiraâ€™s vision of the new world, either making those opposing Kiraâ€™s side equal or less than their numbers
L: Each day, L can think on a player, and through â€œdeductionâ€ (i.e., DM tells them, like in traditional Seer roles) tell if they are Kira or not
Being Anonymous, Kira cannot kill him without knowing his real name. How may Kira learn the true name of L
-Broadcasts: L will also be able to make â€œpublic broadcastsâ€ to the players (a maximum of one per day), which will be relayed to the group through the DMs (L will send the DMs the message and the DMs will post it). Lâ€™s Broadcasts, like Kiraâ€™s do not have to be done each day, and are to be RP.
2 individuals led and commanded by L as such, they follow his voting in support of him. They are also capable of investigating on the side. If they find a Kira supporter, they can try to pressure them on Kiraâ€™s identity. Their identities as investigators are unknown to those outside the investigation team unless they choose to reveal themselves.
Win condition: Capture Kira team members
1 civilian will support Kira and their efforts. Knows only one Kira, and spreads lies and disinformation about Kira.
can ask questions about Kira. Is, well, everyone who is not on the Kira side. They are normal civilians who do not support the ideals of Kira.
Arrests will be carried out by the DMs as the police force, and the arrestees will be decided by players votes
RP in this game is heavily
encouraged, though considering many of those who participated in past Wangshire sessions, I donâ€™t see that as being a problem.
Additionally, for avatars, to fit with the theme Iâ€™d recommend ones based from comics and manga set in (more or less) real settings, especially crime thrillers and the like. However, I'd advise not using prominent Death Note characters as avatars, as such things may result in being targetted for Death by Kira or Arrest
If you want to join, just post your Screenname (acting as your gamename for simplicity's sake), and avatar you'd like to use, that way we can keep everyone straight
Joining me as DM will be Kriz as well, so you folks will have two people running this
also, before the game begins, in the sake of keeping the games running smoothly, we'll take a vote at the end of the week as to whether to begin playing during or after Wangshire Round 2.
DM/GM: Lanz and Kriz
