Opening (click for audio)
Bound together with the oddest magickal incantation.
This wretched book is where it all began so long ago...before time...before humanity...
I am Doctor Edward Roivas. I am a clinical psychologist. I am also dead.
This is not my story, nor even the story of the Roivas family. It is the story of humanity.
Like it or not, believe it or not as you will.
Your perceptions will not change reality, but simply color it.
Humanity has been on the edge of extinction for two millenia. Ignorant of so much, and dependent on so few.
The Guardians grow restless, their time once again near.
From the people that brought you Zodiac Phalla, Heroes, the Matrix, Vampire: the Masquerade, and The Phalla of Haruhi Suzumiha...
Welcome to Eternal Darkness.
Rules of the Game
Each night, players place a vote for one person to be jailed. Generally, each person only gets one vote. You guys should know the format by now;
I !vote for cj iwakura to be jailed.
Retractions will not be required.
In the event of a tie, a RNG will decide who is removed. Only one person will be removed in any round, and should the target be killed via other means then the next person on the list will be subject to the vote. On a death, items are transferred to a random person but skills are lost forever. Apart from that, there is no way to transfer an item.
There are a number of different sides, and the sides can be basically said to be 'good' and 'evil'. That's all I'll say about that.
Players will also need to vote for who will possess the Tome of Eternal Darkness; this gives a number of powers to the bearer, but with power can come a great price. More details about this will be given in the game thread.
No sharing of role PMs, no anonymous contacting. Ability uses, item uses and votes must all be submitted by 11:00 PM EST. Narration will generally be posted around 12:00 EST.
Oh, and one final thing...There will be a Dead Thread/Proboard/Whatever.
However, there is a distinct difference in this game between being dead and insane. This is again something that will come up in the game thread's OP.
A disclaimer: I'm currently still tweaking the rules slightly; things in the OP might change before the game begins. Once the game begins, the rules will be set in stone.
There are the following types of roles.
Seer; two of different types.
Family; at least one.
There are baddies that are also specials. There are three baddies on any given side.
There are a number of items distributed among the players; this does not mean they start in the hands of innocent players. Eight are active items that can be used, and three are passive items of a certain type.
Order of Actions
Active Item Usage
I'll make this brief.
Make sure to take notes and pay attention to things when they come up...after all, if they were to vanish or change later, one might think you were losing your mind...
There's no need to sign up with a number; simply having !sign somewhere in your post will do.
