Give me any character/object/concept/verb/etc from any setting, real-life, fiction, whatever. I’ll give you back an appropriately-flavoured role.
Everyone is guaranteed to have at least one active ability and at least one passive ability. Probably more because fuck it why not.
This game will likely contain one or more
broken shitty experimental mechanics.
I’ll take any number of players.
Signups last until sometime next week.
Example Role PM
I ween that I hung on the windy tree,
Hung there for nights full nine;
With the spear I was wounded, and offered I was
To Odin, myself to myself,
On the tree that none may ever know
What root beneath it runs.
None made me happy with loaf or horn,
And there below I looked;
I took up the runes, shrieking I took them,
And forthwith back I fell.
Hello Urist. You have drawn
Yggdrasil - . You win when all non-Town players have been eliminated. Town Lynchproof Odin-maker Abilities
You’re gonna need a bigger tree (Passive) - You cannot be lynched. Any attempt to lynch you will still end the day, but you will not be killed.
If you need to hang a tree, there’s always a bigger tree. Unless there isn’t.
Rune-keeper - During the day, you may target any number of players to grant them the following ability:
Rune-seeker - During the day, you may post (in bold) On this day, I hang myself from the Worldtree. This will kill you and end the day.
You have heard myths of one who hanged himself in the pursuit of knowledge. Perhaps there is a way for you to do the same…
The first player to use this ability will have their role changed to the following (their alignment will not change):
Hello [USER]. You have been transformed into
Odin - . Undead Extended Jack of All Trades Abilities

Rain: cleanses all things. ᚦ - You may target a player to double their vote for the day. You may only use this ability once.
Thor: his strength cannot be matched. ᚬ
(Passive) - You may continue posting and voting as if you were alive. However, you do not count as alive for the purpose of win conditions.
Aesir: the gods of Asgard welcome you. ᚱ - You may use this ability to enable yourself to use another two abilities this night. You may only use this ability once.
Ride: when time is of the essence. ᚴ - You may target a player to poison them. At the beginning of each day, they will die if doing so would end the game. You may only use this ability once.

Ice: it can kill, but it can also preserve. ᛅ - You may target a player to allow them to turn a one-shot ability that they have not yet used into a two-shot ability. You may only use this ability once.
Plenty: good things come to those who wait. ᛋ - You may use this ability to skip the next night phase. You may only use this ability once.
Sun: we are safer in its light. ᛏ - You may target two players to force them to vote for each other the following day. You may only use this ability once.
Tyr: the god of war smiles upon this conflict. ᛒ - You may target a player to give them the
Fragile ability. For the rest of the game, they will die if they are targeted by any other ability. You may only use this ability once.
Birch: the sturdiest tree can be whittled away. ᛘ - You may target a player to remove all of their abilities. This will not affect factional abilities. You may only use this ability once.
Man: even without weapons, a man is never unarmed. ᛚ - You may target a player to steal one of their abilities. The ability you steal will be decided by the player you target. You may only use this ability once.
Sea: the true home of any Viking. ᛦ - You may use this ability to allow each dead player to send a single word through to the game thread. You will not know who sent which word, and it will appear to be a nonsensical sentence. The results will be shown at the end of the following day. You may only use this ability once.
Yew: the tree that connects the living to the dead.
The runes describe the fate of all worlds. To master them is to master reality.
I posted an example role PM, so y’all know approximately what to expect of this game.
You can also send me your choices whenever.
/in … even though I shouldn’t. Sounds interesting.
um… hello and howdy. I just wanted to calm any trepidatiousness signatories may experience upon finding me on the list
after the game start, or if they happen to believe in ghosts or such and mistakenly have sprung upon their perceptiveness that maybe I appeared out of nowhere all of a sudden like, or, if with wiffers fully engaged, they sensed my presence though only as some feint apparition. See, my /in is almost imperceptible to the nekid eye because, well, I’m invisiblated (which, as some may have guessed, is my sooper secret power). Don’t panic, and try NOT to be alarmed.
Well now I have to put you on the list!
I’m gonna keep signups open until Friday, then work on this over the weekend.
Signups will close at
August 25, 2018 12:00 AM (Europe: Paris), August 24, 2018 3:00 PM (America: Los Angeles)
Still need picks from @Mantis & @ErikaFurudo!
If we gets 3 invisiblated we cans cross the streams and open up a portal to another dimension. I’m pretty sure. But only 9 more hours, unless maybe we want to try and invisiblate Furudo just on name coolness. Furudo. Furudo.
I bet she has hairy feet.
what happens in the other dimension
