This is the game thread for the the Wine In Front of All 2 - Night of the Living WIFOA. The game starts tentatively on October 31st at 5:00pm EST. This may be delayed a day if role bids take too long or forum issues arise. The game will start with a 48 hour 'twilight' phase where votes will not be counted and no lynch will occur. After that, the game will proceed as normal. Game Rules: Spoiler For your convenience, rules that differ from our standard games are bolded. .5) This game is in no way, shape, or form promised to be balanced. Moderator is not responsible for sweeping victory of one faction over another. 1) You do not talk about your role or any other relevant information concerning the game outside this thread. 2) If you post at night I will kill you, no matter what. 3) If you edit your post I will kill you. This includes editing for spelling mistakes. 4) If your role allows you to communicate with others during the night, feel free to do so via PM, instant messaging or any other form you choose. Only those roles expressly allowed to communicate privately with each other at night are allowed to. If you have any questions, contact me privately. 5) Once you're dead, stay that way. Dead people tell no tales, or in this case, dead people make no posts. Suck up your death and keep watching and rooting for your team. There's always the next round. 6) Every player gets one lynch vote during the day. Votes and unvotes need to be bolded . If your unvote isn't bold, it doesn't count. The only part I'm concerned with is the 'vote:' part. As long as I can type that into a Find field and see your vote or unvote, I will count it. Case sensitivity is not required. Names do not need to be exact, but if it takes me more than a second to determine who you're voting for, I'll disregard your vote. 7) This game utilizes majority lynch rules. Unlike standard games, a lock happens the moment a majority is reached. There is no lynch + 1 rule. 8) Any posts that come AFTER the end day post or the intended end day time will not be counted, unless specified by the host. This includes votes. 9) Never post anything in the thread that shouldn't be known to the town. Don't flame in the thread. If you have a problem with anything in the thread, please PM me and I'll do my best to handle it. 10) Any player may claim any role. I.E. Any player may claim to be something that they are not. 11) Do not post any information sent to you in a pm, excluding your original role PM. That, and only that, you may post via quoting or copy/pasting if you wish. No other methods are allowed. All other privileged information must be paraphrased in your own words. [STRIKE]12) I won't be telling you the starting roles. [/STRIKE] 13) Day lasts 48 hours and night lasts 24 hours. 14) Do not post at night or edit or I will kill you. 15) You will get mod killed if you are inactive (at least 1 contributive post a day) or you get a forum temp ban. 16) Read the rules once more. Have Fun! Good luck! May the best team win. 16.5) This game is in no way, shape, or form promised to be balanced. Moderator is not responsible for sweeping victory of one faction over another. Win Conditions: Spoiler TOWN: You and your team win when all anti-town threats have been eliminated from the game, regardless if you are alive or dead.

See your role PM for exact details. Here is a sample town PM: And a sample mafia PM: To combat speculation: The town are the zombies, all named after your forum name.

Okay, with that all out of the way: We are currently in role bid phase. Please view the bidding order and find your place, then choose a role you would like to be. Remember that should anyone with a higher priority than you chooses the role first, then you will be assigned 'vanilla' as a role. Once I've received all role bids, I'll start sending out role PMs and then we can start the game proper. Good luck!
