    ENDING


    "So I guess townies wanna lynch me, eh? Figures. I'm useless anyway. I'm just a humble Villager, much like our dear departed Kloe. But if you do decide to hang me, I suggest you keep my words in mind. Focus on the culprit, not on silly plagues and such. Dallying too much will bring about the culprit's victory. You may soon find yourself on the wrong side of a Wolves & Sheep Puzzle, if you're not careful."


    With a sad face, Alicia was hanged.


    The villagers couldn't forgive what she had done. The only lead they had, the one with the answers to the mystery has been burned to ashes. They were terrified and frustrated. They wanted to know what's going on. What happened to their beloved heroes? What happened to the missing bodies? Will these questions ever be answered?


    Terrence takes one last glance @Ksi and @Zortik before heading out.


    ...


    ...


    ...


    The bloodthirsty wolf searches for a new prey.


    After an entire night without food, she has been dying to taste blood. The villagers are crumbling one by one. With the death of the pesky detective, she can focus on her task. To find the Third killer.



    Terrence was helpful really. Without the keys, she doesn't have to worry about @Makio-Kuta locking her up to 'protect her' and focus on her goal.


    She can almost smell it. Taste it. Relish on it.


    Without fear.


    Without sorrow.


    With the protection of the capital.


    They will live the rest of their days in their own little village away from the Evil Overlord. Hell, she might transform @Makio-Kuta to be a werewolf and join their little race instead! Happily and almost hopping, she knows exactly where she has to go.


    @Jefries wasn't able to participate at all. When the soldiers tried to bring him to the square it was reported that he has a fever. With a slight kick to his window, the glass shatters and she proceeds to enjoy her meal.


    Unbeknownst to the wolf, someone was watching her.


    The girl with the red hood. She slowly cocks her gun and smiles.


    @Kloe was right. @Ksi is the wolf.


    "I always thought you were suspicious." she murmurs to herself. She had her share of crazy werewolves and this one was no exception.


    [​IMG]






    @slimmmeiske2 waits patiently. Hoping that @Ksi would let down her guard and give her a chance to attack.


    "Were you waiting for me?"


    [​IMG]


    Quickly, she turns around managed to evade the flurry of attacks at the cost of her beloved hood.


    "Well, well...I knew something was following but it turns out that it was my prey all along." @Ksi remarks as she circles around the little red hood.


    Their place was perfect. The houses surrounding the area belong to dead people. The only one that they will have a concern later would be @UltimateFiremaster7 but he'll most likely just hear a noise. He is supposed to be the next target but the delicious red laden girl was just too much to resist.


    "You're one manipulative cute." Rouge remarks. She steadies her gun. "I knew you were acting too nice. But its just a ploy to get everyone to trust you." 


    @Ksi simply waves her hand. There's nothing else that needs to be said.


    @JCBrickston couldn't sleep that night. After Yule's sudden disappearance, he wasn't able to sit still and wait until morning. He needs to search that Abandoned Shack one last time. Perhaps from the ashes he could find something that will help them. That place was important to the killer for having that much barricade and precaution.


    He hears the clashing of ground and metal. He sees two ladies fighting to the death and the little red hood was at a disadvantage. Unable to think twice, the commando started rushing in to stop them both.


    "What is wrong with you two?!" he screams at the ladies.


    @Ksi points at @slimmmeiske2, "Be careful, she's the wolf!"


    @JCBrickston attempts to block @Ksi from any imminent danger and quickly faces the little hood. "What are you doing?! This is no time to fi-"


    A gunshot echoes through the sky.


    @JCBrickston was unable to process what just happened. @slimmmeiske2 was just looking at him with cold eyes.


    It's obvious that after @Ksi he was next on her list.


    "What a useless idiot." @Ksi pushes him aside violently. However, this was enough time for the hunter to quickly reload her gun and shoot the wolf.


    [​IMG]


    The wind blows...


    The two warriors fell.


    The battle was over.


    ...


    ...


    ...


    Somewhere, @Zortik plans to leave.


    There's no use fighting for this village. He and @Ksi haven't been agreeing on how to handle the situation. He doesn't feel safe in this village at all. So close to the capital even. He slowly creeps the door open, ready to start a life of his own.


    "Where are you going Mr. Werewolf?"


    Orange hair and wearing a brown cloak, she flashes a smile.


    Before @Zortik knows it, his life was gone. 


    Any answer that the villagers could've had is now gone forever.


    Ending Rank C: Normal Ending.

    Thank you everyone for participating! This thread exists for discussions and whatnot.


    What would you guys like to improve, issues, conclusions, theory and so on.  :rhappy:


    Thank you for giving me the chance to GM a roleplay. I really enjoyed my time playing with you guys!


    The Timeline of Events


    Pre-Game

    • Marsha was introduced by Ralph.
    • A Few Months Later, Marsha was overwhelmed by Ankou
    • Ralph is missing. Harold started to go insane due to hallucinogenic drugs combined with his medicine.
    • Lucius has been medicating Harold and noticed that someone tampered with his drugs.
    • Harold kills Marsha under the suspicion that she's possessed. 
    • Harold was kept by Lucius and Therese on Prison.
    • Therese searches for Marsha.
    • Harold convinces Lucius that there is something wrong with the village. Harold leaves a letter and Lucius sets up a device to leave Therese Harold's Message.
    • Harold and Lucius are dead. The culprit at this point is unknown.



    Game Timeline (Day 1)

    • Therese finally discovers Marsha's body.
    • Therese is searching for Harold and Lucius's bodies.
    • Therese protects @Kloe from the Lynching.
    • Therese was killed by an unknown culprit.
    • Marsha's body is already over 3 days of decomposition by this point. And everyone was 'locked out' of the room.
    • @unity dies first by the hands of @Ksi.
    • @unity was revived by the unknown culprit.
    • @unity started to hide in hopes to find her killer.



    Game Timeline (Day 2)




    Game Timeline (Day 3)




    Post Mortem RP Note

    OK,  now that I am totally refreshed by sleep and a good shower to clear my mind out of work problems, I think it's time for me to come clear with what this RP is about and what led to my decisions at that time. I think @Little Paw @Ksi and @Makio-Kuta all had different impressions of what I wanted to do with this RP (especially reading back).


    I would like to summarize what I intended and what eventually brought up to this RP.


    What I wanted is a D&D-esque Freeform Role-Playing game in which that the narrative will react based on character actions and would write its own. I am not supposed to write the narrative based on your characters, I just react to it. Just like the previous events that happens in this part of the forums. The idea is that it's a Psychological Thriller RP. I wanted to have a setting that is easily associated with the usage of general games or words. So this means, Werewolf RP Game, which focuses on those exact genres with a dash of RP. I do not want an exact Werewolf Game. I want you guys to have an Role Playing experience. 


    In order for this to work, I need to take into consideration factors that is commonly an issue with forum RPs.

    • I need someone experienced. @Ksi was someone I dragged in for this exactly reason. When @unity and @Makio-Kuta both joined it was almost a dream come true. I know that with players like that, new players will be able to catch up to it. I cannot directly join the RP aside from flavor text and informing the players.
    • I need to take into consideration people who might flake. Time has proven time and time again that this, no exception, will happen despite how much i plaster that you need time to join this RP. It almost needs to be a rule in life that it will happen.
    • I cannot take formed characters with elaborate backstories because of the reason above. In fact, almost all of you guys were picked out of pure Random Number Generation (RNGesus) or the Magic Hat. The only exception was @KsiIn fact, my first plan was to make Unity and Ksi to both be werewolves. But that would be unfair so I specifically placed @unity as a villager to aid everyone against an experienced player.

    I have no idea who will flake and who will be able to only post just once a day. This means that the best I could have is a general outline of events I wanted. And the last one that I have kept in mind is that:

    • It must be fun. While Thriller and Mystery are almost synonymous yet completely paradoxical, I added the mystery aspect for the Third Killer/Traitor. I did not want this RP to be just 'Werewolf Party Game." That is extremely boring in an RP forum setting. To note, forum is a huge factor to this and Timezones as evidenced by your entire playthrough.

    I know the general outline of the story. I know exactly what I want to do. But I have no idea who and how the players will initiate the Third Killer. When I killed the HTM actors, they're supposed to be set pieces of what's to come. When I specifically said that magic killed Harold, it was meant to convey that there is going to be magic/supernatural events in this game. However, being a werewolf game, there is a set of rules for the Traitor.

    • The Traitor only activates on the first person to die. I have alluded to this when I already mentioned that Marsha is dead who is the protector of the 'seal' that is found in the Abandoned Shack.  You guys were meant to know this and she will have to re-participate in the game again.
    • The Traitor can only copy people who are dead but undiscovered. In this case, @Chaos17's character. @unity can choose to reveal whether she wants to reveal herself at any time.
    • The Traitor has to watch the person in order to 'steal their identity' the only exception is when a character has to die due to inactivity or asking to be removed from the game. In this case, if @Ksi was killed on the 2nd Night, @unity would've been able to prance around as Katt and effectively becomes the other werewolf.
    • The Traitor can do actions meant to confuse the player. Like the Town Square blood event.
    • Should the Traitor be an inactive/no time player, then this aspect would happen to the next person who died.

    When the murder scenes happen, they are extremely vague on the part of werewolves. All I know is they want to kill x person and I will have to concort a scenario based on that. After they told me they want to kill @unity's character, I have adjusted the narrative and setting based on everyone's interactions. The layout of the map was based on how you guys reacted to @unity's death, character interaction and style of RPing (e.g. finding hairs, herbs, etc.). 


    I could have created a Town Map, but that is not my goal with this RP. I want it to be an experience that you guys subconsciously contributed to. Similar to how Agatha Christie writes her novels where the story slowly unfolds based on the characters instead. After I am done with some work, I will layout the timeline of events and how everyone died.


    But I hope this had shed some light on what I wanted to do.  :rhappy:

    Yes! I got it right! Wow, through everything, my first guess was the right one! Lol.


    I cannot wait for the next time we did this, it was super fun and it had a great ending.


    Also could we have a recap of who killed who on the first two days? I'm a little confused.


    Kloe died but we got the normal ending, yay! Also could we have a vote on who was the best/most interesting? My vote is the Commando, the awesomest guy evah.


    It was an absolute pleasure to be part of this, and you have been the best GM I've ever seen, (even though your the first GM i've ever seen) 


    The best story, the best evidence and a great world, I salute you Nessy.


    Oh and you guys were awesome, I love all the great characters and shenanigans we got up to, and I loved being part of your town, though I was the second to die.


    Thank you so so so much, it was one of the best experiences of my life!!

    My brain can only think it's Elly somehow but that's just because her character struck me as very mysterious after death. 


    Am I correct in that Rouge was the one who looked in the prison that night?

    Haha thanks @Kloe for the nice words.


    The HTML team was killed by the Third Killer. The mystery part of the story is finding the Third Killer. 


    The Third Killer is also on the villager's side. But if the situation demands it, they will also become the werewolf.


    It depends if the Third Killer wants to reveal themselves :)


    As for the werewolf kills:


    Unity = Killed by Ksi


    Crystal = Killed by Zortik



    It depends if the person wants to admit they were watching you ;)

    So close, yet so, so far away. I figured once Zortik went nuts, he'd probably be one of the wolves. It's why I decided not to actually vote. I originally wanted to think Alicia, but that kinda went up in smoke when Zortik acted out. Katt was another suspicion, as they say, keep your friends close, and your enemies closer. She was just way too supportive of my leads and supported my theories. I had thoughts on Makio at first, but as the game went on, I leaned more towards Katt. And I figured they also had an accomplice, which I still think is Elly, who faked her death. Yule had seen her, and there were hints at the bar. Not to mention the orange hair.


    All in all, well played. It's also funny looking back at the other thread to see what you guys were talking about as we played. I didn't do so well as it thought. :(  Then again, first attempt at the game, so eh. I'd love to play again, though. 


    If I may ask, ( @Archeia ) how many roles were there? And which?

    The image actually shows some of the roles and some extra drawings about what makes that character memorable. haha.


    Werewolves = Zortik, Ksi


    Third Killer = ????


    Seer = Taarna


    Gunner/Hunter = Slimmmeiske


    Capt. Of the Guard = Therese -> Maki

    Also if it was the traitor who killed Zortik, I bet it's my loveable psycopath Ace?! Maybe...

    Oooh, so I was right that @Ksi was the wolf. Like Makio, I've been suspecting her since the first day, which is why I wanted her to be locked up. I thought it odd to not lynch anyone the first day and she was the one most vocal about this. When the first lynching period (so second day) started and votes were going between Kloe and Ksi, I decided to vote for Kloe, 'cause it made the most sense in-game wise and I was planning to shoot Ksi that very night anyway. Unfortunately @Makio-Kuta locked her up, so I couldn't hurt her and had to wait until today.


    Now, I had no clear idea who the second werewolf was at all. In the end, I just picked someone with brown hair; sorry @JCBrickston. ^^; Of the ones with brown hair, I suspected @Zortik the least even. >.<"


    As for this third killer, is he or she a necromancer? 'Cause there's no villager left alive with orange hair.


    Makio, I suppose those were mine then? I'm not sure myself xD Archeia knew I'd wanted to kill Ksi, so it's probable she wrote me watching you two. :)

    @slimmmeiske2 Close but not quite. There is no lich or necromancer in the game. But I want to give the Third Killer a chance to post in this topic too wwwww

    I take back Elly faking her death. No, I suspect she was turned into a werewolf.

    Arg!! And you wonder why we lynched ya! No hard feelings, but a lot of us thought you might have issues. I want so sure, which is why I tried to defend you, but it was what it was. The only other scenario I can think of about the third killer is a combination of both theories; Elly actually turning Katt and Zortik, and she was originally a werewolf. But that wouldn't make sense.

    I suppose it is Ace then? Since the remaining survivors have already posted.


    Unless, it's like Alex says and one of the "death" is the third.


    Anyway, you did a great job Archeia. :) I've never played Werewolves in RP format before, only in RL, so the mystery searching was new to me, but fun.


    I'm not sure I'd join the next one, like Zortik mentioned in the last topic, I didn't expect it demand as much attention as it did. ^^; That being said I always play Werewolves the way I did: mostly silent, sometimes butting in, trying to help... I realize now that's not that much fun for other players though, sorry.


    I never suspected you Kloe, but you made it so easy to lynch you, it wouldn't have made any sense not to :p
