Welcome to The Great War CYOR, this game will be for as many players that feel like signing up.



World war 1 was a terrible and brutal conflict spanning from 1914 until 1918.
There were more than 9 million combatants killed and more than 7 million civilian casualties.
It was one of the deadliest conflicts in history.


It is up to you as leaders of one of the many countries involved to change that.

You have all been approached by travellers from the future and tasked with changing the course of this conflict in different ways.

Who knows what far reaching effects this will have and how history will be changed, only you can decide!



When you sign up send me a PM with any Leader from any country that was involved in World War 1 and I will assign you a role based on what I read about that leader.
After roles are assigned I will then rng alignments.

For help go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allies_of_World_War_I#Leaders
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leaders_of_the_Central_Powers_of_World_War_I


This game is probably not going to be the most balanced thing but I will try my best.

Standard mafia rules apply.
http://mafiawiki.notesmash.org/wiki/Standard_mafia_rules
Lynches are Plurality.

The "Town" players will all be Time aligned and the "Scum" will be "Intruder" aligned there may be other alignment names for 3p players.

Additionally! each player will have a secondary goal that mostly involves allied vs central powers
Also the Allied Power leaders will all be in a masonry as well as the central powers, but they are both unconfirmed since alignment is random.


I'll do my best trying to make sure everyone is active and prod people, by all means if I miss someone though let me know via PM's and I will prod them.

Replacements up until day 3 then modkills.

Try to have more than me + votefinder at the end of each game day or ill replace/modkill

Other than that have at it!

If you have presigned go ahead and confirm by posting in thread.

I live near Kansas City, where the WWI museum is. It's really awesome, I have a poster on my wall I'll try to post itt sometime when I'm at home. They have an incredible mural detailing the whole war in symbolism, I need to go back there sometime.

But since I was just killed in another game, I would like to join this game!

You recall this living nightmare, you take comfort in its familiar pain. You smell fermentation and can hear a dull, unending beeping. Someone shouts in a language you do not know.
You love your family. YOU. LOVE. THEM.
Welcome to Red Lobster. Come see what's fresh. Today.


Awww, I wish to hell you'd posted this a few days ago before I'd signed up for Ecco's and Dugong's games.

I'll follow along though so put me down as a replace?

Generally speaking the secondaries will involve specific conditions based on that players leader such as "If x number of Allied leaders are lynched or killed you get this" kind of thing

I think it will add a kind of secondary alignment dynamic like wallmon did in the two axis thing, but they arent wincons only bonus powers etc
