PostAre You A Bluehat? - Roles on their way!
by The Alchemist Penguin » Tue Aug 11, 2009 5:11 pm

Everything is now peaceful on GRCade forums, but a storm is fast approaching. The march of the bluehats is nearly upon us. They've gained control of the admin panel and will stop at nothing until every single member of this forum is permanently banned. They cannot be reasoned with or bargained with; they show no signs of mercy, and will let nothing stop them from achieving their goal. The moderators have been driven underground and nothing stands between the bluehats and total forum domination but you.

GRcade's 1st birthday may also be its last.


DML is a bit tied up running the GGGC over in General Games Chat and it seemed such a shame to let GR's first anniversary pass without an appearance from everyone's favourite forum game so he's let me have a crack at it. If you haven't already guessed, this is Are You A Werewolf? in a special anniversary skin. Everything will be similar to what you're all familiar with, except they'll all the names will be a different, instead of Villagers we have Forum Members and instead of Werewolves we have Bluehats. Simple, right? If you're new to GR and don't have a clue what all this is about then don't worry! It's easy enough to follow and all the roles will be explained as they appear during the game.

How does it work?
The game plays out in a fairly simple manner: An uninformed majority of Forum Members have to try and defeat an informed minority of Bluehats. Bluehats will know who the fellow Bluehats are, but Members won't know the identity of other Members. If you are on the side of the Members then you have to deduce the identity of the Bluehats and ban them (more on that in a bit!), while if you're a Bluehat you have to successfully hide yourself among the innocent Members as you wipe them all out. The Bluehats will win instantly if the amount of Members falls equal to or below the amount of currently surviving Bluehats. The Members win if they manage to eliminate all the Bluehats. To help the Members out there are a undisclosed amount of special roles in the game, which you can hear more about later!

Each day will follow a similar series of events: People will vote for THE PEOPLE'S MOD in the morning. THE PEOPLE'S MOD will select two people to be locked in Retro Gaming and then a Poll is held to determine which one of them is PERMANENTLY BANNED. If you ban a Bluehat, great! But if you ban a poor, innocent Member then oh no!

After the daily bannings have taken place the Bluehats will make their move, and carry out a cold-blooded banning. The amount of people they can ban per night is decided by the amount of people playing, so we'll clarify specific numbers once everyone has signed up!

The Roles
Forum Member
You are the average guy/girl. The true hero of the story. You have no special powers, so have to work everything out using pure, raw brain power. You don't take the easy way out and hack accounts, no-no. None of that ridiculous behaviour for you. Only wild guesses, and incorrect accusations will satisfy you.

Zenigame
He did it. Even if he wasn't there, we can always count on the fact that Zenigame did it. Goat gets a bit of a bad rep around these parts for his uncanny ability to be in some way involved in everything, but he proves to be the most useful role in Are You A Bluehat? with his uncanny ability to hack any account (Well, almost any). Once a night he can hack someone's account and read their Role PM. The Zenigames will be the fastest way to find your bluehats, but sadly even Goat isn't a match for EVIL ADMIN STEVE. EVIL ADMIN STEVE is impervious to any hacking, and can trick any Zenigame into thinking he is a common Forum Member. You'll need more than a hundred alt accounts to figure out EVIL ADMIN STEVE'S identity, let me tell you.

Bluehat
Bluehats. We all know them. Those Blue Fez wearing types who secretly eyeball us all as we go about our business. Why do they do it? Why do they hate us all? We'll probably never know. Perhaps they're just lashing out due to a hidden sexual frustration, or maybe, just maybe, they were born from the very depths of Future Publishing Towers and learned only one thing from their masters: how to destroy.

EVIL ADMIN STEVE
HE'S IN CAPS. THAT MEANS HE IS PURE EVIL. Yes, it's true. EVIL ADMIN STEVE has the largest capital letter-to-evilness-ratio among anyone on GR, and his special ability as master of the admin panel means he is able to tinker with his role PM and appear as a normal member to any Zenigame hacks. The mysterious man behind the Bluehat revolution, banning him will seriously harm their plans. They'll be forced to take a night off from banning innocents due to mourning, and they'll be reduced to banning only one member of the forum per night after that due to their inability to work the admin panel. The last time they touched it they all caused gooseberry fool Tuesday, so they really don't have a clue.

THE PEOPLE'S MOD
He may be in caps, but THE PEOPLE'S MOD is a pure as they come. Well, sometimes. Other times he's a traitorous back-stabbing Bluehat who assumed power by tricking all those around him.
Once a day the people can vote on who they want to represent them, the so-called PEOPLE'S MOD. Anyone can run for PEOPLE'S MOD, even Bluehats, but you can't be voted PEOPLE'S MOD twice in a row. To be clear: You can be THE PEOPLE'S MOD on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, but not on Monday and then again on Tuesday.
Once in power, THE PEOPLE'S MOD must decide which two Forum Members are put up for banning that night. Although they are voted in democratically and can listen to people, the final decision of who goes up for the vote is down to them.
THE PEOPLE'S MOD also has the benefit of immunity from any attacks for the night he is in power due to his powerful bodyguard squad of Google [Bot], MSN [Bot] and Yahoo [Bot]. Bluehats fear the [Bot] Army, although the reasons for this aren't exactly clear.

There are, of course, other roles but you'll just have to figure those out for yourselves! :mrgreen:

Some rules that you should know.
1. Roles will be generated using Tiarny's Random Role Generator Program, so I will have no actual say in the roles themselves. They will be truly random, so guessing who I'm like to put as certain roles won't get you anywhere!

2. The Role PM is for you and only you. Please don't show other people your PM, either over Xbox Live, MSN or anything else. This isn't a competition style game and is really only for fun, so please don't bother cheating. You just take the fun out of the guessing portion of the game and risk ruining it for everyone else.

3. When you are dead, you are dead. Unlike previous games once you are dead you can no longer post, no dead posts of any kind are allowed. Please abide by this rule as dead posts in the past have ended up revealing more and more as people push against what is allowed, so please wait until the end of the game if you want to comment on something. If you have some epic revelation then you must do so before the Bluehats make their move, otherwise you cannot reveal it.

4. When you are dead, please don't reveal stuff freely among other dead members. We've had cases of things leaking out in the past due to dead people getting chatty, so I'd ask you to just observe the game from a distance!

SIGN UP INFORMATION FOR THOSE WHO WANT INFORMATION ON HOW TO SIGN UP!
(Or, that bit you actually care about)

Sign ups start NOW, and will run until around 6pm Saturday. Then I'll give everyone out their roles, and the game will start on Sunday, the glorious day of GRcade's 1st birthday! Some people will be bringing more than just cake to this party, that's for sure. There is no limit on the amount of people who can play, but please don't sign up if you aren't actually going to play! You don't need to dedicate huge amounts of time to the game, but being able to keep up to date with daily events is a must!

Trust is a precious commodity in this game. Spend yours wisely. Good luck, everyone!

The Bluehats will probably take care of that. We've never had many inactives playing anyway. People who might be inactive in the thread are normally chatting away via PM or on MSN/WLM.

Argh, I'd love to be in but I'm only going to have sparodic internet access come friday (probably coffeeshop/library access) so I probably can't. Is there much leeway for missing things?
