Alright, to start, I'll tell you a little about this game. The book doesn't clearly define good or bad, so no specific group or person in the series will be specifically mafia or town. While players affiliations aren't necessarily random, a character who may be displayed as douchey, or antagonistic, may not be mafia.

There are no third parties.

There are no hidden flavors.


This game will be primarily based on the first two books (The amulet of Samarkand, and Golem's Eye) as I am currently re-reading the series and these are the only ones I have caught up on.

I am willing to answer any question about the books to the best of my knowledge, characters, happenings in the book, etc. But I won't answer questions about the game or game mechanics that aren't relevant to your role in the game.

Here are links to the books, so you can control+F characters, or even read the book yourself if you want a good read (though reading the books is definitely not required to play).

Book 1 (amulet of Samarkand): https://drive.google.com...

Book 2: (Golem's Eye): https://drive.google.com...

Here is a list of potential characters that can be in this game:

Commoners:

Kitty (Kathleen Jones)
Frederick Weaver
Stanley Hake
Anne Stephens
Eva
Mr. T.E. Pennyfeather
Clem Hopkins
Nicholas Drew
Martin
Jakob Hyrnek

Demons:

Queezle
Shubit
Bartimaeus
Jabor
Farquarl
Nemaides
Simpkin

Magicians:

Jane Farrar
Mr. Underwood
Mrs. Underwood
Nathaniel (John Mandrake)
The Prime Minister (Rupert Devereaux)
Carl Mortensen
Simon Lovelace
Ptolemy
Henry Duvall
Marmaduke Fry
Helen Malbindi
Julius Tallow
George Ffoukes
Sholto Pinn
Quentin Makepeace

Other:

The Golem
Ramuthra

Terms and Definitions:

Marid- The highest level demon that can usually be summoned by magicians. The structure, energy, and matter of perfection that is required to summon them makes them extremely dangerous, and therefor rare.

Afrit- A higher level entity, more commonly summoned, though only slightly less dangerous to summon.

Djinn(i)- Most common demons summoned. Most ministers have at least one or two of these as slaves. Djinn are intelligent, smart, powerful, and moderately easier to summon.

Foliot- A lower lever demon, commonly used by mediocre magicians for medial tasks.
Imp- The lowest level of demon, barely good for fighting or intelligence. Most imps are used for surveillance, or are confined into magical items (such as scrying glasses or Mouler"s).

Resilience- Magical harm isn't as effective to commoners with resilience.

Living Players:

1. Ford_Prefect
2. RevNge
3. Medic0506
4. XLAV
5. Headphonegut
6. YamaVonKarma
7. numberwang
8. Beginner
9. bsh1
10. 1harderthanyouthink
11. khaosmage
12. raisor
13. danielle
14. EndarkenedRationalist

With 14 players, it takes 8 votes to lynch. Day Phase 1 will be 72 Hours.

In the series, the titular character is a demon. Many of them are heroes and magicians villains, though not exclusively.

From what I vaguely remember, anyone can summon a demon and (barring any mistakes on their part) they can control the demon to do their bidding regardless of alignment. I think the demons are evil in general, but they are summoned by good and evil people equally.

What plans? What would you be doing differently if you were vanilla?

Do you claim to have a post restriction? Type VTNL to confirm.

Golem isn't a soft claim. It's an actual character on the list. Are you Golem?

I think khaos said he was trying out a new play style or something. So I don't think he has a post restriction in his role.

Khaos, you dont have to say much if you don't want to, but I'd like a character claim to go with your miller claim. Reason being, we don't know what the theme is but TUF said there is one. In trekies game, knowing the millers character helped town solidify the "bounty hunters are town" theme. Therefore I don't think it's unreasonable to ask for your character here.

I agree with this. It would be especially helpful if you plan on being effectively inactive.

NOTE: Danielle and I decided we wouldn't post until we have a chance to discuss the game. We hope to raise the level of hydras by playing as a single player instead of as two separate players (that means agreeing about reads and strategy before posting), so we're going to post less than usual but we'll be easier to follow, easier to read (because there won't be hydra dissonance), and hopefully more effective getting things done.
