The castle of Dragons Keep has for years been ruled by King Dracus, a wizened old man, slightly cuckoo, who really is not up to ruling the castle, let alone the kingdom. Last night, the king was murdered in his bed by a group of activists who want to take control of the keep for themselves. Lord Dragonator, fearing for the lives of the people of the kingdom, wants the traitors found and executed as quickly as possible. As an act of quick thinking he has locked down the castle so nobody can enter or leave until either the traitors are found and executed or the loyalists are outnumbered and defeated. He has decided that as nobody can trust anyone else, voting will occur to try and find who is guilty. The future of the kingdom is in your hands!
Lord Dragonator has also added one extra twist in that nobody is to know who anyone else is! Each person is to have their memories altered by the castle wizard so they cannot remember the appearance of any of the other characters. Each person is then assigned a code name (this is your EB username). This is to prevent any bias towards certain people in the keep, so that everyone voting, from servants to Lords and Ladies, are all on an equal footing (also to avoid confusion). Each person will of course know who they are, and may share this with the entire group at their own discretion, and may even use their
The only person present in the discussions who seems to know who everyone is will be the wizard Majiko. He is slightly crazed and very forgetful, but should sometimes be able to help with certain things. Of course, he could just as easily give you false or misleading information, so be weary of what he says, he is not always rights.
Be wary of others, people are never who they appear to be...
The real mystery is though, how did the king die? As you uncover more evidence it will be easier to catch the traitors, but will you make it in time? Only you can decide! *insert dramatic music*
There are two groups, the loyalists and the traitors.
Each day you must vote for someone to be executed. Players are to do this by posting vote: (insert name here). To un-vote, simply post unvote: (insert name here). For someone to be sentenced to death, a majority vote is required, for example, if there are 15 players left, then 8 votes are needed; if there are 8 players left, then 5 votes are needed.
The traitors know who each other are, however the loyalists do not. For the traitors to win they must outnumber the loyalists. For the loyalists to win they must kill all the traitors.
A day will last a maximum of 5 days, or until someone has been condemned. Night will then begin, and will last for 2 days. During this time, those with night actions may chose to use them, at their own discretion. Then day will start again and the cycle resumes.
As stated earlier, to avoid confusion, use your EB usernames in the discussion. Your character name is a secret at the start of the game. It is up to you whether you want to give away information about yourself. Majiko will make it that little bit harder by occasionally giving some information away for you, otherwise nobody would ever get convicted! It is up to you however to play your cards right to stay in the game. You may of course use your character name if you so wish too, it will all depend on how the discussions go.
-Only players are allowed to reply in this thread.
-You must contribute! If you sign up but do not take part, then I will think of a fitting punishment (probably blowing your cover or having you accidentally die).
-There is to be no editing of posts.
-PMs from me are not to be directly quoted, nor is it allowed to give away your character in this way. The information may however be discussed, but no material may be brought into the game environment.
-Try to always post in character; questions etc can be sent to me by PM.
-Once you are dead you may no longer post in the game.
-The game is not to be discussed outside of the current day's thread unless with me via PM. All other communication except in the story is forbidden unless you are told otherwise.
-Once a day has ended there is to be no more posting.
Anyone found to be breaking these rules should not be surprised to find a dragon turn up and try to eat them. (I am deadly serious... )
