Secret Santa 2011
Ho ho ho, it's that time of year again folks! It is the season for sharing and giving, and by that I do of course mean killing and lynching. Yes, the quiet old town of Xkcdia is once again under assault from the forces of evil. But with the holiday season having driven the townspeople even nuttier than usual, can Xkcdia be defended? And more importantly, can Christmas be saved?
Every player sends in a role, which is then randomly assigned to another player. The Mod decides on what alignment each role should have, and alters it if necessary to maintain game balance.
The game will be technically be a turbo (as the slot's empty), but because it's the holidays the days will actually be fairly long. To stop it completely dragging, it will be a nightless setup, with a short instant-night phase following each day in which most actions will take place. The game will be non-bastard in the sense that I will be an impartial mod, but players are free to send in bastard roles so long as they're actually playable.
To play, sign up below and then send me (Misnomer) a PM titled 'Secret Santa Role' and using the following template.
Role Name - self explanatory
Role Description - this is what the player sees, and should ideally include flavour
Role Mechanics - this is an exact description of what the role does. Any elements of the role that are kept hidden from the player should also go here.
You get the idea anyway - I'm sure you can come up with better roles!Example wrote:Name: The Christmas Postman
Description: You are the Christmas Postman! Most posties hate the workload at this time of year, but not you! I mean sure, it's a bit of a handful delivering all these letters, and you get confused at times. But delivering christmas cards makes up for all of that! Each day, you can choose another player to deliver a christmas card to. That night, the player will recieve a message informing them that you are The Christmas Postman.
Mechanics: When the role-holder targets a player, that player is informed that the role-holder is The Christmas Postman. Unknown to the postman, however, they will get confused and accidentally deliver a personal letter instead of a christmas card. Therefore, in addition to the role confirmation, the targeted player will also recieve a random message from a private chat (scum, mason etc.) that occured during the previous day.
There's no player cap, but I want to get started fairly quickly so if you want to play, sign up now!

8. roband - drunken signups are always a good idea, right? Also, I'm always tempted to mention that Santa isn't real, when I'm around children near Xmas, am I a bad person?
