Pawns. Little, insignificant pawns, buzzing about the Roivas family mansion. Did they really delude themselves into believing that their presence would somehow change things?
The mere thought is amusing.

I have waited two thousand years for this moment, and I will not stop waiting now.

My liege continues to express that there is no flaw in this plan. That they will be incapable of doing anything to stop the Darkness from spreading.
The Ancients are warring; with any luck, they will wipe each other out.

I am not so sure.

To think that once I could not see beyond the veil of reality...to see those who dwell behind.

My life now has purpose, for I have learned the frailty of flesh and bone...I was once a fool.

I spit at thee! The Darkness shall be eternal!

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, both items and roles are lost forever.

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.

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.

Players must submit a 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; your health, your sanity, your mind. To submit a vote, simply !vote for cj iwakura to hold the Tome. What powers are available to you will be told to the tome's holder.

Being insane is much different than being dead; when insane, one may find their influence on the game to be limited, and they are not permitted in the dead thread/proboard. When one is insane, however, there is always the possibility of coming back from that status; when you are dead, you are dead.

You will not be told when someone goes insane; however, there will be visible signs.

    I think I should receive the tome.

    My campaign is based on the fact that I received the highest number of votes in Zot's "Who do you like the most" event during his miniphalla.

    Vote for the man who is beloved by all! Or at least 3 or 4 people!

    Also, I've never won one of these before, I would dearly like to. Oh so much. Please sir, can I have another?

    !vote visiblehowl!

    I would just like to say that if you are a good special, I would recommend NOT trying to get elected to receive the tome. We're not sure what effects insanity has, and there's a good chance that it could affect your abilities.

    You know, I just now realized that this is possibly the first game where some can be elected to a "position of power" against their will.

    Most games have you trying to get elected...after we see what happens to ye ole tome bearer, no one may want it....but someone has to get it.

    No it is. In this one I'm a guardian. Once per round of gifts given, I get to 'protect' someone from an incoming gift and take it as my own.

    It's pretty nice. I chose to protect Squashua this time, since he's so nice organizing most of it. :P

    I hear that. As far as this tome thing goes, I like the idea that it's a double edged sword.

    I'm pleased about VH not turning traitor (not really) last game, but he did vote me out previously, so I can think of no one more deserving of this experimental item. !vote VisibleHowl for the the crazy book.

    I'll figure out the red vote later. See what turns up and whatnot.
