3299 BC - A small settlement of ancient peoples in an unknown location.

They toil away trying to sustain life in this fledgling settlement.

The elder told a story of a god who spoke to him of a hidden secret. A secret that would usher in true power for their people.

Now, as the town lay on the verge of dying this legend is the only thing the people have to hang on to.

There are some though, that want this secret for themselves. These betrayers want the secret to form their own village and let this one die.

Still others have their own selfish reasons for wanting the secret or may have other goals aside from finding it.

The time has come for the villagers to stand against the betrayers and outside forces to take control and march the human race towards the future.


Welcome to El Dorado 4 - A Role Madness game for 20 Players.

As with previous incarnations of El Dorado, aside from normal mafia mechanics there will be a search function and different locations.

The Locations for this game are:

The Riverbank - - The Riverbank is an area surrounding the small river that gives life to the village, the dirt along the banks is black from the sediment that is deposited on the shore. This land is the lifeblood and the center of the village because it is where the grains can grow that sustain the village and it is a source of ever precious water.

The Red Lands - - The Red Lands are the vast sandy waste to the west of the village. It is dangerous and unpredictable with frequent sandstorms, intense heat during the day and surprisingly cold temperatures at night. Many deadly beasts roam the sands from poisonous snakes and scorpions to strange poisonous lizards that can disorient and confuse if disturbed.

The Red Cliffs - - The Red Cliffs are further south of the village and it is an area of the river where it is many miles wide across and the riverbanks are large red cliffs that tower above the water and do not provide easy access to the river. Even if it did there are dangerous man eating fish and crocodiles present here.

The Mountain of the Gods - - The mountains to the east of the village are nearly impossible to traverse and contain many dangers. It is said that this is where the gods live and where the ancient elders are said to have been told about the secret.

The Quarry - - To the North of the village lies the Quarry used to cut the stone used in the villages tools and household items as well as building materials.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Every player begins at the Riverbank, each night you may change locations. Each location will have a Discord channel associated with it. You will not be able to see messages prior to being in the room, only what is said while you are there.

Each night you automatically search the location you are at in addition to any night actions you may have.

There will be a small chance to find something at each location to start, the chance to find something raises each night you stay at the same location, once something is found, it will reset the locations search chance for you.

Finding something is not always good, the safer locations will yield less danger but the rewards will not be as potent. The more dangerous areas will have the possibility of great rewards but also great danger. Rewards can be x-shot abilities, clues, special actions or events for the game and many other possibilities. Dangers can range from a stack of hate or a post restriction to the player dying, becoming a stump, or losing abilities.

The secret can NOT be found until night 4.

The player who finds the secret will win the game for their faction. The game can also be won via normal factional win conditions.

I have eliminated the stat/combat aspects of the game to simplify things so no more HP or Attack or Stealth to worry about.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Standard mafia rules apply, nights are closed, lunches are majority.

"Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday."
