Welcome! If you made your way here via the AD Banner, know that it was created by the wonderful @Aleina ! Dear [Character Name], It is with great pleasure that I write to invite you to my home on Saturday, 07 February 2015 for an opportunity to win $1 million. The evening will consist of a welcoming dinner, meet-and-greet with your fellow contenders, and a night of terrifying thrills. These thrills will be marked by some of your wildest fears, and in order to come out on the winning side, you must 'survive' the week. Only the survivors will win the $1 million. The night will be sponsored by my company Anxter Industries. Additional information about the event, along with details about how to get to my home at the Riverbend Farms, are enclosed. I would be extremely grateful if you could R.S.V.P by no later than Saturday 31 January to firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-555-0105. Please advise us of any special mobility or dietary requirements you may have. I hope you are able to accept this invitation and I look forward to hearing from you. Yours Sincerely , Garrison Carter IC: Only post here AFTER your character has been accepted Welcome to "You're Invited," a roleplay that is strongly inspired by the Mafia games. These games can go by many names such as Rabbit Doubt, Werewolf, and Day&Night. If you have never played these games before, that is perfectly alright. You can find the wikia here. Feel free to use this throughout your game-play as you see fit. Throughout the course of the game, you may message me at any time and ask any questions you wish. I have been GM'ing these games for a few years, but this is my second attempt at making it in a RP version. Unlike my first attempt, there will be no pre-made characters. You will need to fill out a Character Sheet and that sheet will need to be approved. Please make an edits if I ask you to. This roleplay will be driven by YOU. My only job is to put the pieces together. You will influence what happens. Each player must promise to be active for the duration of the game. It is important that you maintain communication with me through PM's. The game is not built to last for months. The goal is one week to two months. If successful, I will be creating many more with different themes. Although I ask you to maintain a steady communication with me through PM's, I will only ask for 2 posts a week. You may post more, but if you need to post less, please let me know! If you vanish without any warning, I will be forced to kill off your charcter. This game relies on strategy. After I close off the Sign-Ups, all players will get a special and secret role. They are listed below. Your role must remain a secret and will only be revealed if you die. Hidden within these roles is a role called "Murderer". Whoever gets this role will have two goals. 1: Kill the other characters, one by one. 2: Don't be found-out. This game will be set in two phases: A Day Phase, which will be the time in which all of your characters are free to interact. You may post as many times as you want during this time. This is also the time for your characters to try to figure out who the "Murderer" is. Throughout this phase, there will be an ongoing vote for who is believed to be the "Murderer." At the end of the Day Phase, whichever character has been voted as the Murder will die and their role will be revealed. If they were the Murderer, the game is over and all survivors win. If they were not, the game will continue into the next phase: Night. A Night Phase is a time for silence. Absolutely NO roleplay posts are allowed during this time. OOC talk may continue, but IC talk is strictly forbidden. During this phase, I will be communicating with everyone to learn what they will choose to do for that night. This is the time where the Murderer must choose which character to kill. This is also the time for various roles to choose which character to effect for good or evil. You will get more detail on this part when you are given your character's role. All roles will be communicated by PMs. The Roles that you may (or may not) find in this RP are: Murderer - Kills 1 Character every Night Doctor - Protects 1 Character every Night Cop - Investigates 1 Character every Night (Good or Bad) RoleBlocker - Blocks 1 Character's Role every Night Double Voter - Their Lynch Vote counts for 2 Survivor - Can not be killed by Murderer. Can be Lynched Healer - Can Revive 1 Character. Can only be used Once Watcher - Investigates 1 Character every Night (Learns who that Character Targeted) Lovers - Two Characters who are in love. If one dies, the other will kill themselves. Now that all of that is out of the way, here is the character sheet. I need 8 players to start, but I will take more. You may not have two characters. If your character dies, you are out of the game, but may continue to talk in the OOC. Roles will be distributed randomly. Once your character is accepted, you may post in the IC. CS (Move your mouse to reveal the content) CS (open) CS (close) Name: Age: (20+) Sex: (Male or Female) Appearance: (Picture and/or Description; No Anime, but Drawn Portraits are a-ok. No, you don't have to draw them yourself and yes, you can use real images.) Personality: (Can be listed as Positives and Negatives, or in Paragraph form) Fears: Goals: Background: (At least 3 paragraphs.) Extra: (Whatever you wish to add) Rules (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Rules (open) Rules (close) The basic rules are a given. Follow Iwaku roles. Don't God-Mod or Mary Sue. Don't ignore other RPers. If a character has interacted with you, don't ignore them. Your character can ignore them, but you as a player should not. Acknowledge that your character is ignoring that person. Read other posts thoroughly. Any rules that may change throughout the gameplay will be marked in Orange in my GM posts. You won't be able to miss it. At the end of my GM IC posts, there will be clear instructions that will let you know what is happening. Anything that may be different is: 1. When you receive your role, share it with no-one. You may form alliances with other players, but do not share your role. 2. Post at least once or twice a week. 3 paragraphs per post is the preferred length, but it will vary on how often you post. If you most more than 1-2 times a week, your length can vary. If you post the minimum amount, I expect longer posts because you will have more to react to. This shouldn't be a problem later on in the RP. 3. Your character will probably die. This game is built off of character death. Don't complain if you die. You may still communicate in the OOC but you will no longer post in the IC. 4. Watch out for clues in MY posts. They will point to various roles of the players, so be careful and think hard. If you have ANY questions, please ask here or PM me. All players will be checked to ensure Activity. Post Quality is set to Adept.
