I am an ex-miner. I once worked at the granite mines but, since they failed, I have fallen on hard times and now earn a modest living as a handyman and general labourer in the village. I am a burly fellow, rough and ready, blunt and (of course ) outspoken. When not working, I spend most of my time blowing my meagre earnings in Alcarillo's bar.

I shall be an especially annoying minstrel. I used to be part of a band of minstrels, but met a tragic death from a severe baking accident when we were performing in a village bakery. In memory of them, I speak only rhyme or song. At night, the sound of a lone alto recorder can be heard playing in the depressingly somber key of D minor.

Yeah, I put a lot of thought into this :-D

In case anyone doesn't know how to switch to invisible mode, you click on User CP then Edit Options and tick the Use Invisibility Mode box. This will ensure that no one can see your PM'ing activities which might otherwise give clues as to any secret role which you may have.

No, Encaitare! I am not frightened of the power of the baked good! I look my fears straight in the eye and conquer them like the cowering pastries they literally are! *growls under breath, muttering* I will not let myself be squashed by some arrogant danish that thinks it can best me. Pah!

Ah yes, and the alto recorder is in that delightfully Tibetan key of natural minor. :-D Is my character more complete now? ;-)

Semi-urgent...

Would anyone like to take Azaelia's place in this game? She is unable to play.

All righty, I'm going to be out for most of today (Saturday). I thought I would have time to post this morning, but the game hasn't officially started yet and I have to leave me house in like five minutes. I'll be posting very late tonight, so pleeeeease don't think it's suspicious that I haven't posted all day! I can't help it!

I'll do it but will give way to another if someone else wishes to. If I'm the one, go with the role I gave earlier.

EDIT: I have to take back my offer. I really don't have the ability to play at this time, as tempting as it is.

edit of the edit: Okay, okay, I'm in. Sorry for the confusion.

Gahh

I don't know if anyone actualy reads this, but I'll post my problem anyway. Sorry, guys, but today I'm not going to be posting much for a bit today. My mom is making me do college stuff and it'll probably take something like an hour right now. Please don't take my silence as anything conspicuous, I really don't have any control over this All righty, I'll try to post later.

Whoever is the next Mod, could the game please be set in the Shire? I just think it would be hilarious with all of us as hobbits trying to cope with an invasion of werewolves. It could be like the Fell Winter all over again...

Morsul, anyone can join. A game was just recently started (if you already didn't know) so another one I wouldn't expect to see up for quite some time.

But, when a new one does come up you can either post your intention to join that game. Or, if you even want you can PM the mod for the next game. Right now I don't know who that is, but I'm sure somebody on the downs can inform you.

A suggestion...

A suggestion - for game X, perhaps it could be a special "Commemorative Edition" played with just nine players, Wolves, Seer & Villagers. Perhaps an invitational. *shrug* Just an idea.

Are you willing to voice any?

I think it would need 12 people, I think that was the original number. It would be quite cool if the same 12 people did it, too.

When I said many I actually meant one.

Such a game would not please anyone. It would be elitist.

That would be the invitational aspect, I presume. Which could be solved by either having the original people play again (if possible) or having a first come first served application process.

Is Enca the next Mod then?

A good question, my short friend. If no one else has dibs on WW9, I'd love to mod it.

True. But if there were to be such a game, the 9 players could be the last surviving wolf from each of the previous games. That would be interesting to watch...

Yep... I'm good to post.

I very much like the Invitational idea. I think it would be fantastic. I've been toying with presenting the idea myself (just ask Eomer... I mentioned it to him before) but I see I got beat to it. The trouble is the timing so even if I were involved, I couldn't play. *sigh* But I still submit that it's a good idea and watching experienced players who are excellent at messing with other people's heads duke it out would be a blast.

Oh and... *slaps hands* You silly people shouldn't be posting here. There's a game in progress.

To all players of WWIIX:

I may be gone this weekend. I'm not sure yet; others have made plans that I will have to be a part of. I will try to get on tomorrow morning and late Sunday at the least. Hopefully, I will be able to post at least as much as I have been, but I am not trusting to hope.

All right, people in the current werewolf game, I will be unavailable for most of the day tomorrow, Saturday, and Sunday. I'm moving into college :-D and tomorrow I'll only have time to post in the morning. Since that's hardly enough time for me to determine who to vote for, I probably will NOT be able to vote tomorrow. I likely won't be on at all on Saturday and only part of Sunday. After that, I should be good to go, but I'm just warning you all now--tomorrow I will be posting likely ONCE all day (unless I can somehow wrench my laptop out from under the piles of stuff in the car tomorrow on the five hour drive). So if I don't post, don't jump to conclusions ;-)
