SET UP IS OPEN, PLEASE READ
Welcome to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Over the next few game days, you will experience a groundhog day type phenomenon, each day you will wake up as year 1 students at the school where you will be sorted into your houses. Unfortunately, somehow you’ve all forgotten the houses assigned to your fellow comrades.
At the start of day, each student will receive a note indicating:
Better be… Grinfindor!
You might belong in Hufflepuff…
I sense wisdom… Ravenclaw!
Up until a Slytherin has been TK’d via vote, the sorting hat will assign 2 players to Slytherin house, these players form the mafia team for that day. All other students will also be assigned to houses by the sorting hat.
Once the school has achieved a successful TK on house Slytherin, the sorting hat will only re-assign players from the other houses at night, all Slytherin players will remain in their house.
Students will win if the house which they were last in upon leaving the game is victorious. Hufflepuff, Grinffindor and Ravenclaw all win if all Slytherin players and the sorting hat is eliminated.
If the sorting hat is eliminated, all students will remain in their current houses for the remainder of the game.
Every student also has an alternate victory condition: If a student has the correct outcome (TK the opposite faction) a total of 3 times throughout the game, they will exit the game with a victory. If this student is the last Slytherin player, Slytherin will win as a team.
Additional Role information:
At the start of year 1, the sorting hat must confirm 1 student’s house via the moderator.
At the start of year 2, the sorting hat will give out a 1-shot expulsion ability that will allow a player to expel a student from the school. This ability may be given to any player including the sorting hat themselves. The ability MUST be used in the first 12 hours of year 2. A majority TK cannot be reached before the use of this ability on year 2. Expelling a player does not count toward the first TK against Slytherin. The expel action is taken publicly.
At the start of year 3, the sorting hat may replace 1 actor (player) with another actor (player). The sorting hat is responsible for finding the replacement player.
At the start of year 4, the sorting hat must choose 1 student from Hogwarts to be immune from TK as they compete for the triwizard cup.
At the start of year 5, the sorting hat exits the game with a victory.
Each night, after being assigned to Slytherin, the newly assigned students must perform a night kill action.
Roles will go out shortly.
Everyone is either a student or the sorting hat. Only the sorting hat will receive a role PM.
