Shaunda Moss rubbed at her temples as the rest of the council tittered. This had been the third town hall meeting to discuss the construction of the new Tesco and somehow it had been uglier than the last two. One on hand, you had those who wanted the convenience and opportunity afforded by the new flagship store. On the other hand, there were those who couldn’t stomach all that would have to be destroyed to accommodate such a venture, or else were rightfully worried they’d be put out of business. On either side, there could be no compromise.

Shaunda put a hand up to call the rest of the council to order, thankfully they obliged without her having to raise her voice. “Alright then, once more I suppose before we adjourn, time for the ‘secret ballots.’" It was a joke, they’d taken a secret poll after each town hall previous and the result both times had been a unanimous ‘no’ to the new Tesco. ‘Better just to stay out of it,’ they had all agreed. Lychford was a sleepy town, there was no sense in trying to wake it up.

After the voting hat had been passed around, Shaunda gave it a playful shake and then dumped its contents onto the table. “And there we have it folks, another unanimous…”

On the table, mixed in with the majority of ‘no’ votes, were a handful of ‘yes’ votes. Shaunda licked her lips nervously and looked around the table. No one was saying anything.This couldn’t be. The vote was still ages away, but the results of a ‘yes’ vote could be so spectacularly dangerous that Shaunda was forced to consider them for the first time.

Long after everyone else had left, Shaunda was pouring over the construction plans Tesco’s representative had provided them. ‘Sweet Mary Mother and Joseph,’ she whispered. They’d be tearing right through the five-spoked point at town center, the very foundation of the barrier. Without that in place… Shaunda thought about the ghastly thing she’d seen along the north edge of town last week. The barrier was getting weaker every year, the ghouls and ghasts and other strange beasts that lurked about the woods would have no problem tearing through it once its support was removed. Only the handful of the Sighted and Witchblessed would even be able to see it as it happened. Shaunda moved to grab her mobile with shaking hands, as the lights in the council chamber flickered and then went out altogether.

hello friends.


we will begin with a short night zero. it starts now and ends sometime around the point where i wake up or get bored. i will not count votes in this time period but please feel free to begin discussion. in all likelihood, deadline will be monday evening.

a couple points i want to clear up so that no one tries any role comparison shenanigans. you are all 'influences' within the mystical scene of lychford, but very few if any are town council members.

a standard vanilla flip looks like


You are Georgia Binnes, Lychford Vanilla!

You have no extraordinary abilities other than your love of ghosts and eggs. You win when all threats to the town have been eliminated.


If you are town and I said your alignment is anything other than 'Lychford,' I hosed up. Sorry!

i'm hugely inconsistent in terms of flavor so if you try to make flavour arguments you might make a bad mistake sorry!

It was raining heavily the day it all began, but people went about their business all the same. In the same manner, those who had sensed trouble brewing behind the scenes began to make their plays, and those who intended to cause more trouble began their work in earnest. A current of something unfamiliar ran among the town halls, parent-teacher conferences, and neighborhood watch groups; fear. Those with a bit of sensitivity felt a great sense of unease, although they could not tell you why.

Throughout the month, Hope Abernathy was the subject of many nasty rumors. Although the unassuming owner of 'The Village Witch - Magic Supplies for the Modern Era' had seemed harmless enough before, some said she was taking payoffs from Tesco. Civil discourse was one thing, bribes quite another. Of course, with a new shopping centre located within walking distance of her own store, which would be miraculously unaffected by the coming development, she stood to make quite a bit more.

Customers stopped coming, and soon Hope stopped leaving the house at all for fear of dirty looks. One day, there was a simple paper sign on the door that said 'Moved to Framlingham - Closed Indefinitely.' After she'd left, people commented that it was 'such a shame' and that they 'quite liked having a bit of local flavour.' Those with senses not common to the waking world realized perhaps a little too late that whatever arcane secrets she possessed were no longer available to them.

A neighborhood welcoming commission finds its way to the home of one of their newest members. It's strange, none of them can remember him moving in, but with his recent involvement in the town hall discussions, it only seemed right. However, knocking at the door with a peach cobbler, there was no response. The door swung open just a bit, and out of concern they stepped through. The place was clean and empty. There was no sign of life, other than a single sprig of holly in the middle of the kitchen floor.

By the time the fire service arrives, it's already far too late. The rain keeps the blaze from spreading, but it started in the middle of the night without warning, leaving no time for Lychford's beloved educator and practitioner of the unseen arts to escape. The cause was determined to be a gas leak, but the members of Lychford's loose coven cannot help but find it strange that such a mundane means could be the death of a powerful witch.

Absent from the mourning is Marnie Macintosh. Some said the grief from losing another person was too much for her. Although it seemed gauche to mention, there was another theory put forward by those who didn't care for social niceties, she was paid off. Who exactly would bribe someone like Marnie Macintosh was a mystery, but those who kept in touch couldn't help but notice that her new home was much nicer than a clerk's salary would warrant. Good for her, but she left in such a rush that she did not see fit to share anything she had seen in her scrying cauldron. She didn't seem to be in any hurry to return their calls either.

An unseasonable chill sweeps through the town, as if in retribution for Lychford turning away a Prince of the Winter Court. What discussion is had that week takes place in pubs, coffee shops, and by the fireside, and the talk grows as heated as any flame.

A recluse, even among witches, Mildred is rarely seen outside her home, even as the accusations against her grow. Her old bones simply can't take the dreadful chill. As one by one her coven rejects her, she is left with little choice. Before the week is out, there is a small 'for sale' sign on her lawn, as she leaves Lychford for parts unknown. The house never sells, but those who look through the window sometimes swear that they can see a single eye rotating endlessly upon the windowsill.

The news runs through Lychford like a live current. The lead Tesco spokesperson was found dead by the side of the road. Quickly though, shock turned to outrage as even a casual examination of his documents revealed a huge numbers of bribes made to local government officials, council members, and influential parties in the Lychford area. So great was the outcry that the fact that he was found fully exsanguinated was hardly mentioned.

Across town, a man wakes up for the first time in months. He looks around his empty home, coming to slowly realize that his dreams were true. His wife was gone, many months now. She had seemed so real in his dreams, he could remember her touch as if it were still on him. And the cat... no, he'd never had a cat, had he? Then why did he remember one?

Hitting him all at once, it's too much. He doesn't even bother locking the front door, Jerry simply gets in the lorry and drives. He drives very far, and we do not see him again. The cat did exist though, and we can only presume it grew to haunt Jerry's dreams, if Jerry could dream at all anymore. For now though, the cat-thing scratched and howled at a rune-bound lockbox at the bottom of Lake Lychford.

No one could seem to remember where James came from, but although he'd been in Lychford for decades, few could say much about him. He kept to himself mostly, although if you kept your eye out you'd see him making his rounds of Lychford almost each and every single day. Although he had lost his sight, he never seemed to have any trouble finding his way around, like each cobblestone and doorway was the back of his hand. Emboldened by the arcane skirmishes the week previous, the few who knew Lychford's secrets went to meet him as he returned from the north side of town one foggy morning. Sensing them congregated there, he shook his head sadly and turned away from Lychford, walking out into the mist before they could say a word. As he crossed out of sight, he stuck his gnarled walking stick into the mud and let it stand there.

Unless you knew who he was, you never would have missed Reggie when he left. He lived on the outskirts of town, on a farm that more bordered Louth. When the town of Lychford awoke that morning though, there were ravens covering the town square. 'CAW CAW CAW' echoed through the town, regardless of the time of day. Were they mourning, or was this something else?

He'd say all that's left now of the old days,

Just days from the final vote, and Terri Westman was nowhere to be found. Townsfolk came calling, only to find a very nice American family that had just moved here. Somehow seemingly overnight, she had sold her home and moved away. Doing anything with speed wasn’t unlike Terri, since her husband passed she rarely thought twice about doing as she pleased. Still though, she was a straight shooter, it was unlike her to up and leave. She’d felt strongly against any new business development in the town, for political reasons as well as arcane.

Was she scared of something?

The rest of her coven were, certainly, and none came visiting after she left. Without her protective aura, they could sense the thing she’d buried under the front porch. Those who passed too close got headaches and later could see it in their dreams, the ziplocked bag full of inky blackness and horror. They would forever think less of her, unsure as to how she came to be in possession of such an weapon.

The way things were going, the nightmare under her porch would be the least of their worries.

The two of them walked through the woods together. It was spring now and raining again, but neither minded much. Chester ran through the gathering pools of water with no trace of the limp he’d carried for months. Maria smiled from beneath her umbrella.

They reached the northmost boundary at last. She could see it now, and Chester stopped to inspect it. He gave it a sniff and seemed satisfied. The Vicar took stock of her handiwork and was satisfied as well. She was new to this world, but the improvements seemed to be holding.

The rain picked up and Chester growled. There was something right outside the barrier now, Vicar could see a creature of shadow with pale yellow eyes step forward only feet from her position on the inside the barrier. She stared back at it, unblinking. It pressed a hand to the wall of pale blue light that protected her, and hissed in rage as its hand burned away from a single touch. It vanished, and the rain dropped to a gentle patter.

They’d been given a second chance. It had not been easy to convince the council, but with the opposition out of the way they’d managed. Life went on in Lychford, some of those who left found their way back, others did not. But, now the duties that had been neglected for decades were taken up again. The coven became a coalition, a growing group that began to learn the ancient ways. They met once a week, and in the early morning or right at twilight, sometimes you would see them out by the edges of Lychford. You would know them by their Cloaks.





Several Months Before

There was a knock at the door of Deirdre’s room at the EasyHotel. “Finally,” she muttered, “new recruits.” It had been a hard road without Yusef, as insufferable as he’d been, but the vote was just hours away. If they could secure this moment, she could begin her great working and complete the design.

She opened the door and a woman in a clergy uniform was there. She blinked “The Vicaress?”

Maria pulled a cricket bat from behind her back. “Actually, you can just say Vicar.” She swung the bat and caught Deirdre in the stomach.

Deirdre fell back, fighting for breath. Vicar Maria stepped towards her, hefting the bat. “Normally, the church frowns upon violence, but I think we can make an exception in your case.” Deirdre grabbed a piece of chalk that had rolled underneath the desk in her room and began to trace patterns into the thin hotel carpet. As Maria stepped forward to deliver another blow, Deirdre rolled away to reveal her working. Maria stopped. The shape was horrible. It was just a series of concentric squares arrayed in a spiral pattern, but it was somehow wrong. The bat dropped to the floor. Maria couldn’t take her eyes off the shape, much less move. Deirdre began to stand up.

A cold and bitter wind chilled Lychford, as Winter had come early. Otherwise, most were none the wiser. It did seem a bit of bad luck had come by, but these things happened. Car accidents, heart attacks, a missing child. Tragedies, surely, but merely the misplaced affections of fate. There was nothing that you could ascribe to a higher, or lower power. The unseen world, was a different story.

The construction of the new grocery store cut through the very heart of Lychford’s defenses, the ancient stonework laid centuries ago when the seen and unseen world were close relatives. The people then knew the stories and the ways, and they passed down their knowledge casually, never once guessing that someday their workings would be entrusted to a handful of the enlightened few.

Never once did they guess the protections would fail.

It swept through the town in a wave at first, all the beasts and foul things of the hidden world come at last to prey on those who could see them. Within a week, there was no one touched by the sight left in Lychford. Then it was an easy enough thing to prey on the rest of the town at their leisure.





yronic heroism, Vicar Maria, Lychford Vanilla was eaten by the beasts of the endless field!

You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
There's a blaze of light in every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken hallelujah


got some chores tonight, Deirdre Commons, Tesco Rolecop has achieved a SCUM victory for himself and derp!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RmCSnqOo_I

He's making hexagons
He's making perfect squares
He's making triangles
He's making cylinders
And in the junk yard
Above the robot screams
They give him orders
Like Rabbits from his dreams
They're laying eggs now
And Hatching fever spells
He eats them slowly
His blood is thinner now

https://docs.google.com/document/d/...dit?usp=sharing Setup Draft and Complete Role Flavor(there is a decent amount)


So what was the deal with this game?

As disclosed, it was a Mafia variant. As undisclosed, it was Fire & Ice. https://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?title=Fire_and_Ice

A couple changes were made. The first time scum both successively targeted each other with the faction kill, both kills would fail. This happened night one, which was crazy.

I ran this because I was thinking back to Little Mac’s ‘The League II’ and how much fun it was as scum, to hunt down the other scum team. I think the Fire & Ice rules helped to an extent, but it’s hard to examine the success or failure of the setup given how buckwild things went down.

I thought both scum teams played well, but hyper aggressively. It’s probably confirmation bias at work, but I thought flerp/flam and derp/chores were playing very very close together in a way that’d be immediately apparent. There were several decisions from both town and scum that I was definitely not expecting over the course of the game.

I have, I think, just two takeaways from this game.

Fire & Ice works better if you don’t tell everyone it’s that.
Fire & Ice works better with a bigger game, maybe?

As for the rest of the setup, you can see there was nothing too buckwild. Honestly losing Retro D1 was kind of a huge hit. Not to encourage the dirty d1 no-lynchers, but that sucked. Personally I thought everyone played really well! Town caught a huge break with all the scum on scum murder but in the end CHORES FROM DOWNTOWN!
