| Welcome back to Sunnydale!
For those who haven't played before, here are the rules:
At the start of the game, one of the residents of Sunnydale has been bitten by a foul, soul-sucking demon of the night, aka a vampire, and has thus become a a vampire themselves. Their goal is to spread vampirism throughout the population until the vampires outnumber the humans, whilst the humans, with the help of the Slayer and the Watcher, have to fight back as best they can.
The games proceeds in phases, day and night.
During the day, the population (scoobies) discuss with the Slayer and the Watcher, who should be staked at dusk, and who should be protected from being turned by the Watcher. The watcher must PM me his decision so that the vampires don't know for sure who is under his protection. The Slayer makes the final decision who to stake, and posts it in this thread. Once both of these things have happened, the day ends, the stakee is staked, and I announce the start of the night phase. Of course, during the day the vampires' job is to obfuscate and misdirect the rest of the scoobies into turning on one of their own.
During the night, the vampires discuss amongst themselves who to turn next. When they have decided, the primary (first) vampire PMs me his decision. If their victim isn't protected by the Watcher, I roll a die. On a 4-6 the victim is turned into a vampire! On a 1-3, they survive, and remain ignorant as to the attempt to turn them. If the vampires attempt to turn whoever is protected by the Watcher, they will find a random one of their number dusted on a roll of 4-6 instead! I will PM anyone if they have been turned into vampires, so that the rest of the scoobies remain ignorant as to who the new evildoer in their midst is. I will then announce the start of the new day.
The vampires win the game if more than 50% of the population become vampires. The only way for the scoobies to win is to eradicate the undead menace entirely!
And so, without further ado, the population of Sunnydale, in alphabetical order:
Emo Squid - staked, Human!
Malcolm - dusted, Vampire! Well done Mrsham!
Swoop - dusted, final Vampire!
The randomly selected Slayer is...
The randomly selected Watcher is...
And the randomly selected vampire will now receive a PM from me informing him/her of their newfound undead status.
The game is a foot!
