[Phalla] Haunted House - Game Over! Camper Victory!

Prologue

*About a year ago*

“See I told you the camping trip would be great to relieve your stress.” said Bob as him and a nearby woman continued walking through the woods.
“I guess, it is beautiful out here, and the air is so fresh compared to the city but let’s hurry up a bit and get back to our campsite before it gets too dark. We should be able to see it soon now.”

The couple continued walking, but they could not believe their eyes when they saw their campsite, it was in ruins. The camps were torn apart, the tires to their car was slashed, and everything that was in their tents were lying on the ground everywhere.

“What the hell happened here?!?” Yelled Bob. “Who would do this, and where?!” As Bob turned around he came face to face to a pale man in a cloak.

“Why hello there, mind to join me and my friends for a fun night out?” Asked the pale man as he grabbed out a hook, pierced Bob’s shoulder and started dragging him.

Later that week when the police started their search for the missing couple, they could find no trace of them except for their blood on a altar in the middle of the forest.

*Present Day*

“ I think I found something here, in this forest area in Oregon, each year in the week approaching the spring equinox, a group of campers, hikers, tourist, you name it, go missing.”
“Are there any bodies, any evidence of what happened to them?”
“No, nothing is found, there is sometimes a car, but all the personal belongings are gone. But check this out, last year, the police found a bloody altar in the forest. They closed the forest off for the summer, looking for more clues, but to no avail. They found no suspects or clues, so they let the forest be open again. But they did find an old abandoned mansion, it had everything and belonged to a rich millionaire a long time ago. ”
“Let me guess, he died a violent death?”
“There is no records of what happened to him, but my guess is that the place might be the center of the killings.”
“Wait, the spring equinox is next week is it not?”
“Yes and there is already a big group of campers, filled with tourists and locals, going into the forest in a few days. I’m going ahead to check it out, here’s a ticket for you to get into the group. You go in as a normal camper and we will try and meet up there.”
“Okay, I will get everything ready then.”

*Few days later*

“Welcome fellow campers, we are about to enter the forest, make sure you have everything you need!” Yelled what seemed to be the group leader. Yelling through his megaphone he was looking over the people, making sure no one gets separated.

The first few days everything was normal, they got deeper and deeper into the woods without nothing weird happening. The first night when they set up their permanent camp site on the other hand was not so normal.

Someone wandered into the group leader’s tent to ask something, but came out screaming their lungs out. As more people approached the tent to see what’s wrong, a head rolled out of the tent. It seemed to be the group leader’s head, especially since his mega phone was crammed all the way in the mouth of the head.

Inside was the headless body, along with a note.

“This was just a warning, if you guys decide to co-operate with us, we promise we will let some of you survive.”

Everyone assembled outside to see what they were going to do but they could not seem to agree on anything. They eventually decided that they should keep moving and try to get out of the forest. That was when the attacks started happening.

People were randomly disappearing, or there were dead bodies found when everyone woke up in the morning. Some people decided that they should take action.

“It is obvious whoever is doing this is in the group, we do not see anyone else out there, I say we start killing off the people here.” The man grabbed a rock and was about to attack the man next to him before a hand grabbed him.

“Look this is not the way to do this, whoever is killing us wants this to happen. I say if you guys really want to start checking the group members, we should at least do so in some sort of manner, instead of all of us attacking who we fins suspicious. Each night lets all bring forward our suspicions and see what happens from there, k?”

Everyone nodded along. They continued walking that day till they appeared a clearing in the forest. They all thought they finally made it out of the forest but instead they were greeted by this:

“Ummmmmm what now?”

“I dunno.”

    Rules Post
    The game will take place in chapters instead of time.
    To vote for someone for execution : I !vote to execute _____
    To retract a vote: I !retract my vote for _______

    Each day you can vote to choose where you want to go: I !vote that we should go to the bathrooms

    The voting will end everyday at 11 PM EST unless stated otherwise.

    Campers: 34
    Good Guys: 6
    Neutrals: 2
    Bad Guys: 8

    The win condition for the campers and good guys is to kill all the bad guys.
    The win condition for the bad guys is to match or outnumber the non-bad guys.

    There are 6 items randomly distributed in the map. Whenever the group enters a room that has an item, it is given to a random person excluding the bad guys.
    - Items are all one use
    - Items cannot be traded
    - When the Item holder is killed, whoever killed the person gets the item, if the person was killed by the vote, then it is randomly given to one of the people who voted for the item holder

    All the actions happen at the same time, including items. The results of some actions, such as seering, comes afterwards. So if the person is killed, they do not get to see their results.

    I recommend that people stay active if they do not want to die. I will first give warnings to people in the thread, then PM them a second warning. If they are still inactive then they will get killed that night.

    Also no extreme meta gaming, meaning no forcing people to commit suicide by becoming inactive.

    Finally the normal PM role which everyone will get.

    You are a….. camper!
    You decided to join this big group camping thing since you were always afraid of going out by yourself or in a small group. Now you even more pissed off that people are dieing around you, and you can be next! What’s even better is that now your group found some abandoned house in the middle of the forest. Your only chance of survival is to find out who is killing the people in your group and try to find a safe route through the house and it’s surroundings. Each night vote for who you think is most suspicious and vote for where you want to go next in the house.

    New Rules for Inactivity
    All right, here's the super-secret inactivity rules which I in no way made up as I was typing them.

    A minimum of 8 posts by tonight and 3 additional posts each subsequent day (11 tomorrow, 14 Sunday, etc) are required. First miss gets a warning PM. Second miss results in termination.

    The following players have already received their warning and are ON NOTICE for the rest of the game:

    No one!

    Rules clarifications
    Q: Can we split up? We'd cover more ground that way!

    A: Everyone stays together.


    Q: According to the rules post all the items are distributed randomly.

    A: The items are "randomly" placed.


    Q: Can we choose not to move to a different room, or return to a room we've already been to?

    A: No.


    Q: What if we do, infact, paint ourselves into a corner?

    A: Everyone dies, no one wins, I become angry.


    Q: Will votes made at 11:00 count or must they be timestamped 10:59 or earlier?

    A: 11:00 counts, 11:01 does not.


    Q: If an item is received, will the group be informed, without revealing the identity?

    A: You guys will not know when there is an item in a room, or when an item is found.


    Q: If the person in first place for votes gets killed by a bad guy or neutral, then does that mean there is no vote kill that night?

    A: The vote kill will be shifted to the person who has the second most votes.


    Q: Can we share role PMs?

    A: No. This way lies madness.


    Q: Can the neutrals recieve an item when one is found?

    A: Yes. The items can go to good or neutral players; only the bad guys are excluded.

    So you guys have to choose whether you want to go to the main hall or bathrooms today. You can only go N,W,S,E, you can not go diagonally.

    What a creepy house gang, but I have an important question:

    Where's the kitchen?

    Hrm...I smell something delicious coming from the direction of
    !the Main Hall!

    Comeon Scoob, let's get some grub.

    Edit: Also, I propose a Mystery Inc. alliance. All people playing a part of the Doo gang PM me.
    Edit x2: I am not proposing a call for specials, don't get me wrong. I just think that the members of the Doo gang should be able to talk their suspicions and such. Just a little bonus to the game.
    Edit x3 for the idiots: The Doo gang just means people with the Scooby avatars, we are not some kind of weird stonecutter group, in fact, I don't want to know if anyone in the gang is a special.

    How can you get to the bathrooms from the front lawn anyways? Bathrooms don't usually have doors going straight out the driveway, unless you're a ghost who can just float through the wall *shifty eyes*.

    Also, blue on blue text is pretty ugly.

    So we're dealing with some kind of shape shifter and its hiding among the group.

    It's clear we need to get to the balcony, so !go through the bathrooms.

    The seven people who will end up disagreeing with this sentiment have something sinister in mind, and should be promptly killed in some manner.

    Call it a hunch, but I have a feeling that Locus will be among these scoundrels, so he'll get my !vote for execution. Telcus will probably be vigilanted tonight, otherwise he'd get my vote.

    I like how the campers aren't even listed in the OP. There are 6 good guys, 2 neutrals, and 8 bad guys, and then... apparently 38 non-entities. The chaff. Not even worthy of a victory condition. *sigh*

    Yay us.

    Anyway, down to business. Despite Frosteey's (ludicrous) assertion that anyone who wants to go through the main hall is sinister, I think that the !Main Hall is a logical starting point.

    Who has a door directly from the road to the bathroom anyway? The architect of this place was obviously the real monster. :P

    I'm going to refrain from bandwagoning anybody yet.

    I'm glad we seem to be going to the bathrooms first. Games are notoriously lacking in bathrooms (Super Paper Mario even had bathrooms!), so it's really a rare treat to go to them, especially this early in the game.

    Also, a visit to the bathrooms now will probably allow us to avoid crapping our pants when viewing the horrors to come.

    And why is that? Is it my charming good looks or is it because I am just way too dangerous of a player to leave living? I believe the monsters over in the D&D game now have learned this lesson, as I helped the village pretty much win that game, through backstabbery and lies.
