when grouchy and I were RAF we chatted lots, as is common with those who know they are aligned. Chatting rules, but bear in mind you'll also maybe end up chatting with people who are trying to figure you out and you have to lie to them or otherwise manipulate them into thinking you are cool. It can really stress you out. The best way to avoid this is to just be chill and vague. I am not very good at this, but hell, I'll give it another go.

Nice, let's see if we can get two more today for the full game.

As we have a few new players I've been told it's easier to get access to the WW slack aka no stakeout club so we will use that one for this game.

Questions:

How do you know you're aligned with somebody?

Wolves are only mentioned once in the rules and once in the thread title. Are wolves actually a big part of the game? Not a dealbreaker for me, but it's a little confusing.

If the Mason Rule is standard, what makes this game different?

Are you allowed to ask questions while the game is going? The wikipedia VHB linked to is helpful but this game seems to have a lot of variations.

Here the journalists are aligned together against the islanders.

in this game most of the journalists know they are aligned except for the editor in chief. The islanders are aligned against all journalists but mainly don't know who other islanders are. The exception to this rule is the fishermen and the artisans who each know their counterpart. These characters have a slight advantage in that they have some grounding wrt who they can trust.

Oh hey it turns out I actually got made an admin/owner of the hpnww slack some time ago without me noticing. :gapearth:

This probably means I can add people myself. If I figure out how. -1 Baby I can add you to it myself, I think I just need your email. You can email me at VHBwolf [at] gmail [dot] com, the semi-burner account I use for all hipinion related activities these days.

Anyone else who isn't on the other slack feel free to do the same.

Awesome. We can add a few extra players if anyone else joins but otherwise I'll likely send out roles tomorrow night. Depending on how early we can potentially do n1 tomorrow.

Board PMs are still down unfortunately (illustrating why we send out game info via slack).

Email me at the burner account posted earlier and I'll set you up

I think I have invited Delphic

[Wendy hooked me up with your email account from board registration, so as long as that's up to date it should be cool, lemme know if otherwise]

Delphic - you were sent a slack invite to the email you registered to the board with. When you receive your role please let us know. If you don't think you can play just let us know and we can find a replacement.

-1 baby - yes, you should role play as if you were on an island.

*note that role play activates the lore items mentioned in the post. This is effective immediately and if triggered the items could be used for n1. Please have night actions in by tonight at 7 PM EST.*

you don't have to but it can make things more fun, generally.

(and in this particular game it sounds like Casimir has put in a couple extra mechanics to encourage it/make it beneficial)

Santa Baby lives on the beach in a bungalow on wheels. Some might call it a trailer, but not Santa Baby. He calls her Old Yeller because of the sound she makes when the engine turns over. He parks her wherever the wind takes them, which averages out to a few meters west per day. The emergency brake is broken. He should get it fixed before Old Yeller hits the boardwalk. All in due time.

The only thing he loves more than Old Yeller is surfing. He surfs in the morning, he surfs in the evening, he surfs at suppertime, he surfs on a Beagle. He surfs anytime, except during the afternoons when he has shifts at Beagle's Surfboard Hut. He's a manager there.

Santa Baby is sleeping when the ferry arrives. He hears the commotion and ventures out to investigate. It's a terrible sight. Journalists everywhere. He hates them. He hates all of them. The reaction is visceral. Years prior, a journalist on a scooter ran over his childhood pet, a majestic swan named Leda. The memory of burying her is all too fresh in his mind.

Santa Baby grabs his longboard and surfs his emotions away.

Sometimes I do reckon whether I should be living on an island with such confounded idiots, but alas, tis the ebb and flow of the tides of life.

But if these damn'd beach bimbos don't serve me soon, by God.
