    So... who's gonna step up and drive the stake into the sweet, innocent seamstress, eh?

    Despite her screams, the Villagers grab Issa's wrists to subdue her. Realizing that her cries were not swaying the Villagers' perception, Issa lowers her head in resignation... then lifts it again in defiance, a fire burning in her eyes that wasn't there before. She slams together the two Villagers who are holding her wrists, then leaps over the Villagers who encircle her, tearing apart a random straggler in the back of the crowd who happens to be in her way.

    Issa turns and runs towards the woods. But the metalsmith's son, armed with one of the special silver-tipped stakes, steps out from behind the smithy and drives the stake through her heart. Issa explodes into a cloud of dust as the metalsmith's son is knocked to the ground.

    As the son rises and dusts himself off, the Village cheers. And for a change, there was peace in Bosonville. At least, for now...

    The Villagers WIN.

    Yay team.

    Not really sure who was who but I suspect that Jonny was the troublemaker and jk was just unlucky.:twisted:

    I took a gamble on the mayor and scribe being masons.
    The only other reason I could see for the 'close relationship' was that they were both vampires. But then, why only those two? And then they voted to stake one of their own so it seemed unlikely.

    Nice to be on the ******* winning side for once!

    Well played BM.

    I put my bets on Fred (GSteer) being either the Seer or Paranormal Investigator, if he was then that combined with being the Tough Guy made him a powerful character to have around!

    Wouldn't want to guess any of the other roles though!

    Nice to have a villager win as well, proves it is possible to beat the evil buggers :p

    One thing I'm not quite clear on - what with me always being on the side of good and lovely - do the vampires know who the other vampires are at the start? Or are they in the dark the same way as the villagers are?

    They know, allows for strategic kills by the bad guys to eliminate whoever they see as the greatest threat! Obviously they have no idea about the rest of the roles so they may balls it up entirely...

    ...and two other people were NOT on the Villagers' team:

    First off, although the game was a relatively short one, I enjoyed moderating the game, as usual. I hope you enjoyed it... if you liked it, throw me some Rep or buy some Boson exams or something. ;)

    Do you have any comments or suggestions this go around? I think everyone was more used to the new voting method.

    I have a few new Roles to add for next game. :twisted:

    I want to list a few polls in the next day or two:
    1) Best Roleplayer - use any criteria you want! Perhaps this vote will give people incentive to roleplay more in future games.
    2) Most Influential Player - use any criteria you want! Again, I am hopeful that the vote will give people incentive to be active in future games.
    3) Most Memorable/Surprising Moment - the moment that stood out most for you during the game that made you say, "Wow!" or "I completely didn't expect that!" Shoot me your suggestions for this category in this thread.
    4) If there's any other poll that you think would be interesting, throw it out here as an idea!

    Game Recap

    I have attached a spreadsheet that indicates the Role of each player. In addition, it indicates each nomination and vote that they made. It is interesting to note who voted for who.

    The worksheet for Boson Village III is also included.


    We started with only ONE Vampire in the Village: Issa the Seamstress (alicat). I feared that the game might be over much too soon with only one Vampire, but I think she held out long enough, all things considered.

    Before the game got started, the Villagers wisely chose their Seer, Captain Jack (nugget) to be Mayor. This helped him by putting his two votes where they would be the most useful.

    On Day 1, the Villagers succeeded in killing off the Sorcerer (jk2447). Had they not done so, jk2447 was due to scan Captain Jack that very night, and he would have discovered his Seer role.

    On Night 1, Fred (Gsteer) was bitten. Fortunately for the Villagers, Fred was the Tough Guy, so he and Amber and Gall survived long enough to vote for one more day.

    Seer-Mayor-Captain Jack scanned Andreas on Night 1, and discovered he was human. No other activity occurred.

    On Day 2, the Villagers took out another problem: Old Shizam (twizzle) was the Hoodlum. Before the game started, Shizam chose Dick and Jack as his targets... meaning, he was targeting the two of them to die.

    On Night 2, Issa chomped down on Vet Ant (jay_s_uk), who was Cursed. All of a sudden, the Villagers had TWO Vampires to deal with. At this point, I thought the momentum began shifting. But... I was so wrong! Seer-Mayor-Captain Jack scanned Issa, and found out that she was a Vampire!

    Before the voting on Day 3, Dick (JonnyMX) decided to use his Troublemaker ability to call for TWO staking votes. Despite Jack and Issa pointing fingers at one another, the first vote took out the newly-changed Vampire, Vet Ant. The second vote finally took out Issa... TWO Vampires destroyed on one day!!!

    Remarkably, the only one on the Villagers team who died was Fred, and he gave it all he had. I thoroughly enjoyed GSteer's prose, seeing through the eyes of Fred.

    Andreas (JosiahB), the Idiot, always voted to stake anyone who was up for the vote... jk2447, Shizam, Vet Ant, and Issa.

    Zachary (reddevil12), the Witch, never used either potion to Heal or Kill any of the Villagers. It would have been amazing for Fred to have been healed and for the entire Village to be saved!

    Congrats to the Villagers... that's your first win. 8)

    Another fine game, most enjoyable!

    Think I'll have to follow GSteer's example next time though and put a bit more time and effort into my posts!

    Blast from the past but what ever. Does anyone think they are creative enough to moderate a game of this? It was very popular, just an idea
