Quandary
Jan 29, 2008






A month ago, the crew of the Agaue left Rubirge to set sail for the Alcazar Real with a hold full of untold fortunes worth of the finest pottery, wines, olives, and perfumes. This morning, in the middle of the Morze, the first mate found the captain of the ship dead on the floor of his cabin.

Someone had murdered Captain Quandary, a well respected gentleman, in cold blood in an attempt to seize the treasures on the ship. Making matters even worse, during the night the ship had been crippled - sails were slashed, oars were thrown overboard, rescue boats were broken. The Agaue wasnít moving, not anytime soon at least. Clearly this wasnít the act of one sailor, but rather perpetrated by a band of brigands who had snuck aboard in an attempt to make their fortune through theft. Immediately after the crime was noticed, the brave members of the crew rushed to defend themselves, taking up arms and looking for the men who had killed their brave captain, but the mutineers were nowhere to be found. The crew quickly realized the criminals must be amongst them, members of their own trusty crew that had gone rogue when tempted by riches.

Minutes later, a shout was heard from the dearly departed Captain's chamber. Someone had found a note that was carelessly left during the murder:

code:
Kill the Captain and cripple the ship. Weíll be there to pick you and the treasure up at the full moon.
The crew realized they didnít have a choice. They either had to secure the ship from these mutineers in time, or die by the hands of the pirates that were already on the way. There wasnít much time to waste, it was time to start hunting for mutineers.




In this mafia game, the spiritual successor to Buaneís beloved Brainslugs series, there is a time limit - the pirates are coming. With that in mind, your crew must take action immediately and as such every single day there will be a lynch. Not game day, but real life day. In this game, at 11pm EST, every single day, the player with the most votes will be lynched. In the event of a tie at the deadline, the player with the most recent vote will be lynched. Because of the close proximity of the ship as well, there is on privacy and no-one can do much of anything during the night without being caught. Even the mutineers are forced to sleep side by side with the sailors, and if they attempted anymore murders would be immediately caught. This game will be nightless, and immediately after each lynch the next day will begin.

In addition, while, because the game is nightless, there are no power roles, there is one exception: in the scramble immediately after the murder, some of the crew raided the armory and grabbed the five knives that were stored there. Each of these players will receive a one shot day-vig, so may kill a player at any point during the day by typing ##Stab Name or ##Kill Name. If someone is killed, the crew will have had their fill of blood for the day - the next lynch will be pushed out 24 hours until 11 pm EST the next day.

The sailors won't be guaranteed safety until all mutineers are dead and they can take the ship to safer waters without fear. The mutineers, however, win by taking control over the ship and outnumbering the sailors, securing it for when the pirates arrive to rescue them.

Typical mafia rules apply - I donít want to type them out, if you havenít played or donít know the rules ask or look at literally any game.

Two rule highlights, however:
-Because of the nature of this game, lurking will be extremely frowned upon. Do not join if you expect to not be able to contribute daily until the game ends. I expect each player to post at least once daily, though if you miss a few it is obviously ok.
-Fake using a day kill will result in a modkill.

Let me know if I have any questions or missed anything! Post below to sign up, and leave an email if you donít have PMís!

This looks interesting.

I'd happily sign up despite being an Australian; since Eccos game ended I'm really keen to sink my teeth into another and practice more.

If you'll forgive me for killing you that is Quandary.
