Blood on the Clocktower PBF #2


#1

Well, the first one seemed to work, so let’s do it again. Minimum 5 players and more is definitely better. There will be a lot of private message traffic.

Here’s a character crib, generated from the “Script” tool on the game web site. In the actual game, each player has a copy of this - it lists all the characters who might be in the game, and what they do.

As far as you know there are 9 Townsfolk, 2 Outsiders, 3 Minions, and 1 Demon (but some roles will change this if they’re present - for example, if the Baron is in play, two of the Townsfolk have been replaced by Outsiders.)

You are allowed to communicate privately with other players, but you must post that “your name whispers to @other-player” (and the same from them in return if they answer, though only once each per exchange).

Note to latecomers / observers - you can be included even once the game’s started. Send me a PM and say you want to join as a Traveller, and I’ll give you details.

ORIGINAL POST

What the hey… I’m in!


#3

FIRST!!!

AW PILLBOX, welp I guess I know who I’M voting off first :stuck_out_tongue:

Just kidding, and of course @RogerBW, I’m in!


#4

I’d also like opinions about voting - public, as last time, or by PM? My inclination is to experiment with PM voting but I don’t have strong feelings about it.


#5

In.


#6

I’m up for experimenting with PM voting! My guess is public is still gonna be better, but you never know :slight_smile:


#7

As they say in rural Canadiana, my birth tongue which sometimes comes out when I’ve had a beer to many, the dialect of not one, not two but three Canadian poet laureates:

I’m in.


#8

I agree. It sounds as though in the live game that you wouldn’t really have a chance to react to somebody else’s vote anyway


#9

I’m in! I promise I won’t be evil this time. Unless I am. WHAT SHOULD YOU BELIEVE? :smiling_imp:


#10

I watched the last PBF and would love to have a go. One caveat with PM voting - we could accidentally end up with ties that lead to no executions. Is there a way to avoid that, or is that just an acceptable risk?


#11

I think people will, if a tie is either desired or undesired, have conversations necessary to prevent those situations prior to calling the vote. I’ve not played the live game but I suspect it’s the same for the same situations that arise during the real-time voting (where the ST swings their arm around the circle, counting raised hands)


#12

Thinking through it, I imagine it would be useful for us to announce publicly when we send our vote to the storyteller.

Or… Maybe not?


#13

Hello, I’d be keen to join in! Last thread was a great read.


#14

I played the live game once and it was certain possible to change your vote at the last second if you managed to count that there was an unwanted tie. Usually the first few people in voting order have to lock in straight away but further down the line you can react a bit more. Not sure how to account for it in PbF though.


#15

Actually, I think if you’re fast you can be really shady and switch your vote at the last minute, though you’d probably be called out for it and might come off less trustworthy.


#16

Two very good points. Although, in a secret vote format, this may be counterpointed by the fact that we can lie about what vote we sent to the ST. This somewhat emulates being able to change your vote at the last second but with slightly different nuances


#17

Enjoyed passively watching the last one (thanks for running it/playing it!). In for seeing it with possibly even more people and being part of the action this time.

Count me in!


#18

I wonder if that would have a greater impact than we realize? Seems like it might give a slight edge to :smiling_imp: team evil, but maybe that’s ok since archived posts might give a slight advantage to :innocent: team good.


#19

I’ll play again if there is space. If not that’s ok :slight_smile:


#20

Character Definition link is giving an error. Not sure if that’s the case for anyone else
