Everyday life in Grand Oak Gallows

Grand Oak Gallows is a quiet town. It is ruled by council, has its share of pubs and other entertaining places but nothing out of ordinary. It is quite retro but the town is not really that technologically impaired. Recently there were even talks of starting their own space program. Sure, they don't have railroad or good meeting place yet but it doesn't mean they cannot try to reach the stars, right? One doesn't need railroad to build space ships after all.
Sure there are occassional dramas going on but usually those are just local minor things with short reach and doesn't affect anything much. But as any town there are not only good people living there. In fact there are barely any. Yet some of them are more bad than others. Recently there was minor drama involving one long-time resident of town insulting everyone around, saying he can't put up with local bullies anymore and moving out to some unkown location. Now people wonder., was it just one-time incident or is something more sinister going on around here?
Let's find out!


1. Have fun!

2. The moderator of this game is me, Vitek. Should you need to contact me, you can reach me through the chat system of this forum or through Steam if you want.

3. All players have a vote, which they may palce upon any player. A vote may be withdrawn by unvoting. Once a player has more than 50% of the votes, that player will be lynched and the game will go to night. No amount of unvoting can prevent this. You don't need to unvote if you want to place new vote. Vote can be also accrued by posting links outside forum. Each one generates vote against player posting it. This is totally real part of rules.

4. A player may also vote nolynch. A majority of nolynch votes will end the day without a lynch. Idiots.

5. Please remember to bold your votes and unvotes like this: Unvote Vítek, vote adaliabooks (cuz who would vote Vítek?).

6. When you are dead, you are dead - stop posting. A single "bah"-post is permissible and encouraged.

7. Don't edit your posts! This is very important! Editing a post is grounds for being modkilled. Due to the forum software I must also ask you not to double post. Two consecutive posts of the same user in a short time frame will merge, creating the appearance of an edited post. The time limit after which you can post without fear of editing post is 10 minutes.

8. Please bold any requests for votecounts or questions to the moderator.

9. Do not discuss the game with anyone outside the thread, except for people specified in your role PM, and then only at such times as the PM specifies.

10. Do not quote or paraphrase too closely any PMs you receive from the mod. If you are afraid that your paraphrasing is too close, contact me and I'll take a look at it. I certainly made some mistakes in PM. If you notice one feel free to notice me and laugh at me in private. Please do not try to use it to your advantage.

11. All players should post at least once every 36 hours. If you expect to be away for more than 48 hours, please let me know either through PM or in the game thread. Failure to do this will result in me sending you a prod via PM and in thread to which you will have 24 hours to respond. I am issuing warning for every prod. If any player is to recieve his 4th warning, he gets replaced or modkilled instead and can't post anymore. I am going to try to post each 36 hours and track time of my posts. If you won't have any post in between mine votecounts (excluding special requested votecounts) then you will get prodded by cattle prod.

12. If you can no longer participate in the game, let me know and I will try to find a replacement.

13. I don't want to renumber all following rules and this one was redundant from putting together 2 differnet rulesets.

14. Roles have been randomly assigned.

15. You may not post in the game thread during night phases.

16. All players on winning team win, even the dead ones, assuming any other win conditions have also been satisfied. Anyone who is modkilled loses, no matter what team he was on.

17. Remember it’s just a game. Be polite and remain calm. Anyone not being polite is just trying to get YOU to make a mistake so they can lynch you. Don’t fall into the trap. Politely lynch them or night kill them for their rudeness.

18. This isn't rule, only note. This game has its fair share of randomness so be prepared. If anyone tries to convince you it is nicely balanced game he is lying to you and probably evil person. Do not trust him at all!

19. Have fun! I mean it.

20. Play Ziggurat!

Role PM structure:

You are
Role (Slow Mod) – flavour (You are so lazy it's not nice)

Ability name (Procrastination) – ability description (You are able to not roll roles and play Ziggurat instead even if the game is ready)

Win con (You can only lose this one)

You can post here.

It is Day 1 now. It will end when I say so or when lynch is achieved.

With 14 alive it usually takes 8 to lynch.

No I won't edit this post anymore at all!

If any of you have not recieved your role PM through chat let me know and I'll remedy it promptly (and figure out whom I sent it instead).

Vote yogsloth. Let's get this game on the road.
From the sign up thread, it's pretty clear that cristigale, trentonlf, and bler144 are scum.

So Vote: bler144.
Let's do this!

LEEEEEEEEEER... OK, really, that is quite enough.

I apologize.

The llama that made the above joke has been sacked, and the llama that sacked him has also been sacked.

For my own reference:

Signup thread


I'm a little disappointed Robbeasy didn't die in the OP. Isn't that the prerogative of the assistant mod?

I see from the OP the by-now ubiquitous language about "other factions" and "all threats", so we're in for another clusterfrick, I'm sure. I'm putting a dollar right now on flub for the SK.

Other than that, we don't have much to start with, do we?
Vote: Krypsyn

He is always scum.
JMich: Vote yogsloth. Let's get this game on the road.
Oh, booooo. lol.

I've got my eye on you pal.
Krypsyn: Vote: Krypsyn

He is always scum.
I would laugh so hard. No offense.
yogsloth: <snip>
What do you mean,"Other than that, we don't have much to start with, do we?"

I just gave you the list of the three scum. Game done. Case solved. Ace in the whole, and perhaps several other idioms that I don't understand. What more do you want?
yogsloth: I've got my eye on you pal.
Wouldn't it work better if it was in your eye socket? :P
Vote Bookwyrm
He wanted to kill everyone in the signup thread, I think he might me a serial killer.
Dammit, I meant to type,"Ace in the hole,"obviously.
vote CSPVG.. because I couldn't do it last game.
Everyone needs a nice warm welcome, so...

Vote agentcarr
CSPVG: From the sign up thread, it's pretty clear that cristigale, trentonlf, and bler144 are scum.
Pretty sure the sign-up thread was for trolling and is outside the game and game rules. I wouldn't be so quick to pick 1, much less 3 from that thread.

While the crime committed here (there was a crime, right? mayor something something?) is heinous, we should stop and assess before throwing anyone under the bus. It is important that the guilty are brought to justice, but killing our own, if they are innocent, would be unconscionable.

Alas, now that empty spot is no more, I'll have to survey the terrain for an opinion on who might actually be the guilty party here.

You know something about a mayor, Bler? Care to share?
