We are currently figuring out whether this can be saved, or I should start over (if we do, send me your character PMs so I don't have to write them again) If we restart, I can easily shuffle things around, make it easier for everyone to understand, and clarify a few roles. Also some people might be leaving/coming in.
The year is 179-. The Royal Treasury is empty. Food prices are through the roof. The people have declared that they deserve representation and power in government, creating the National Assembly. Distrust and paranoia permeate the Parisan streets. In the midst of this, 3 major political factions begin to gain power among the people: The Jacobins, The Girondins, and The Hebertists, each trying to jockey for the best position while also attempting to win freedom for the French Downtrodden (colloquially called Les Miserables) from the Royalists. Suddenly, terrible news runs through the city like fire: General Lamarck, the last of Louis XVI's inner circle who gave a damn about the people is dead. The last hope of a peaceful Republic is dashed. Riots break out. Fighting erupts in the streets. The Royal Family is forced to flee. Barricades are erected, blocking off streets and neighborhoods. We focus our attention on the neighborhood of Les Phalles, on the street of the same name, and the barricade that has adopted that name as well. Rumors abound of Royalist spies or hard line Jacobin or Girondin fanatics or maybe even something else among the people, carting them off to be guillotined. No one knows who to trust, or where to defend from. Fear and paranoia are the order of the day. Who will survive these terrible days? That's for you to decide. Bienvenue à Les Phalles.
DO NOT USE THE NAMES I GAVE YOU IN THIS THREAD
Please do not delete your PMs until the game is over.

The New Voting Mechanic:
First, for someone to die, they must be in Jail.
To put someone in Jail, you vote (in some green) I !Vote [Name] for Jail
The three most popular votes will be put in jail. The jail only holds seven
at any given time. If more than 7
are put in jail, the ones that have been in the longest are set free. Also, you can vote someone out of jail using the same mechanism as blocking a vote, but I !vote to free [name]
Once someone is in jail, the next night they can be Guillotined.
Like so: I !Vote [Name] for the chop/guillotine/execution
You can also block votes for jail or for the guillotine, like this:
I !Block [Name] from jail/death
To block a vote, a majority by at least half again must vote to block (except in some special cases, which are secret)
You cannot block your own death or vote for your unjailing. You can vote to block your jailing, however
Some special abilities will be known to the users. Others will be revealed through the course of the game.
The goal of the for factions is to gain dominance over the other three.
The downtrodden win if every faction has been dwindled down to less than half. They must also be in the majority by the end
