The brightest heaven of invention,
Two households, both alike in dignity,
Where fair is foul and foul is fair,
In Ancient Rome, where we lay our scene.
Scholars have long debated whether all the works attributed to William Shakespeare are in fact penned by that master. The debate is perhaps less animated about the following piece, which seems to have been written posthumously. The Bard, if he indeed wrote it, seems to have mixed in characters and themes from all sorts of plays. Influences on his work include West Side Story and Punch and Judy. Only time will tell if we have a new masterpiece.
Some Generic Rules:
2. Please stay on topic.
3. Lurking is discouraged. Please notify the mod if unable to play. Lurkers may be removed or replaced if no response given.
4. If you aren't part of the game, please do not post in the thread.
5. Do not post in this thread during the night.
6. The dead will only be allowed to give a final death post. It being a convention of the genre, I cannot deny any of you a death flavor post. But please, no spoilers.
7. You may not post verbatim or quote from your role PM. Paraphrasing is fine.
8. You may not edit your posts.
9. You must play to your win condition
10. All Pms must be copied to the mod, mpolo
11. All votes, unvotes and questions go on a separate line, bolded.
12. Questions may be asked to the mod in public, bolded, or by PM.
13. Deadlines will apply firmly whether a mod calls them or not. A grace period may be retroactively granted. Pure discussion may continue until night is called.
14. No cryptography
15. No self targeting.
Some win conditions:
You are scum, and win when scum controls the majority of votes during a day period and there are no other killing powers in play.
Scum have certain information that would make a mass claim counterproductive. But each of them has a different piece, so they will only become more dangerous after the first night.
A note on posting restrictions: These are intended to be more "fun" than anything. I'm not going to be combing posts to police this, but if you're not "playing in the spirit", you may get warned or punished.
