Werewolf - Seer Town

    Given that we're getting started during the Holliday Season, we'll add that to the mix...

    The 10 of you were just recognized as the top-10 personalities in "Fortune(teller) 500" magazine. To celebrate, the magazine invited each of you to an all-expense paid trip to the North Pole where you will spend the holiday season with Santa, his elves, and his reindeer, helping him to best create a route that will allow all children everywhere to receive their presents as quickly as possible.

    After arriving fairly late and having a get-together dinner, you are each escorted to your rooms for a good night's sleep in preparation for the next day's activities.

    When you wake up, however, everything is turmoil. You are quickly gathered together and moved to a new set of cottages. Santa, it seems has been attacked in the night by a werewolf. As wolves are not native to the North Pole, suspicion has immediately fallen upon the 10 of you.

    Santa is going to be okay, but he has been sequestered and will be allowed to leave his quarters until the wolves have been found and dealt with. Not only are your own lives at stake this time, but the whole future of Christmas rests on your ability to track down the imposters in your ranks.

    For the first day, you may visit and introduce yourselves and any experience you may have had with hunting wolves. Elves will stand guard tonight so the wolves won't be able to feed, but if they don't spend the rest of the nights preparing, the toys simply won't be ready in time, so you will be on your own.

    Note - I have not yet assigned rolls. Everyone is either a seer or a wolf, however. There are exactly 2 wolves. Not all seers will be reliable. There will be a rule to each of the seers and I won't vary from that rule. For example, at least 1 person will be a real seer and at least 1 person will always "see" the opposite of the truth. It is up to you to determine how reliable you are as a seer.

    For now, even the wolves don't know who they are. They will come to terms with themselves tonight when they try to "see".

    Post here with introductions and PM me with who you want to "see" tonight. When I respond, I will let you know what you find out and, in the case of the wolves, I will let them know who they are.

    For my benefit, please include "Night 1" in the subject of your PM so that I can keep them straight.

    "Hey folks! I'm Spidey, the inspiration behind the TV show Medium. That's right, I've helped the police with some very difficult cases, so find out who these 'werewolves' are should be pretty easy. We could be done and drinking eggnogg tonight!"

    Howdy folks, I'm Zigathon. I've used my gift as a way to make millions of dollars that I've simply squandered on selfish persuits. Personally, I don't give a crap what happens to any of you, just as long as Santa doesn't have to cancel Christmas. I would hate to have to spend my money on buying anyone but myself presents.

    Now, where are my strippers and cocaine?

    The names Melkor McPsychic and saving Christmas is old hat for me. Why with my strange unearthly powers I caused the Grinch's heart to grow two sizes just like that, thereby earning the adoration of all Whoville!

    *A rather boisterous voice bellows from the old man who appears to be on steroids.*

    I'm Ransac Kennedy Bloomberg!!!!!! I run Global Wrestling Entertainment. I can get people to accomplish whatever I want, including having me win my own world title at an age when I should've been in Depends. I'm here because Santa wanted me to whip his elves into a better work ethic and to apply my brilliant ideas to this route he needs...

    ..his route will stop at my mansion 50 times on Christmas..... for safety concerns.

    Hello, you can call me Sage.I'm still comming to grips with this so called "gift" there seem to be things in the minds of men I'd rather not know.I use to work in a mill, one day I fell off of a ladder and hit my head badly on the stone floor.At least that's what I was told when I woke up in hospital.They also told me I had been near death for several months then just "woke up" one day.That was about a year ago and since that day in hospital I've started having these visions of other people's lives.
  8. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Hello. I am Oversoulette and I'll be your hostess. The elves have assured me that they will be able to accomodate you during this crisis, but it looks like we're on our own with regards to this werewolf situation. I'm sure that with all of the psychic gentlemen in our presence, we'll do just spendidly. If there's anything you need, let me know.

  9. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Goodday gents, mam.

    My name is Mr View. Limited View.
    I'm pretty sure I could point out the Wolf right now, if it weren't for the thick fog of stupidity that surrounds you people. I'll actually need to concentrate.

    Miss Oversoullette, I can only assume you know I want a cup of tea?
  10. turgy22 Nothing Special

    Hello there, fellow seers. Seeing all these other seers makes me feel not so special. You see, I come from the village of Spaldavi Cavern, where the people never open their eyes, since they are not needed to navigate the darkness underground. In fact, people have lived there for so long without opening their eyes that they don't even realize that many years ago, the cavern walls receded and now the village lies above ground in plain sight.

    I was the first child born there in centuries that actually opened my eyes, so they called me the seer. Of course, I grew up to be the most powerful man in town. I have the ability to find objects that aren't where the owners thought they would be. I also have the ability to read, which I learned from watching Sesame Street on television, or as my people call it - the expensive radio. Oh yes, and I can also urinate without making a big mess - an ability which makes me the most popular man in my town. Unfortunately, all the women are homely.

    But enough about me and my history. I have come here and I must solve this mystery. I can already feel my powers working. Santa's hat is red. Now, to find out what this clue has to do with werewolves...
  11. DarthFerret Evil Sith Weasel

    Howdy Howdy everyone! DarthFerret Ziggler here! This 'gift' as you all seem so fond of calling it, has been the success behind my fortune! All the selling tools in the world will never outperform the insight into a customers mind that I recieve with this gift. As this time of year is the best for me and my business, I will be very busy on this here phone a lot, however, I will also be out there working for all of us in our attempt to locate this abomination and save Christmas. All of you seem to have your fortunes well in hand, but me, well, lets just say that if Christmas is ruined, I may as well be too! Ok, enough of the small talk, lets get down to business....

    *Ring, ring* Excuse me, I have to take this...

    "Well, Well what do we have here? I am M.M. Jayewardene and the Xenovirus Takis-A was no gift, more like a curse. But, even without it, I see a lot of us dead in the coming days."
    "Maybe the culprit will draw the Black Queen and we can all leave."
  13. EricBess Active Member

    Just a rules reminder...All players who have checked in, but have not PM'ed me with their "sees" for tonight should do so today or tomorrow. I'll get results back to everyone and let them know what their roles are Friday morning.
  14. Zigathon Registered Nerd

    "I'm willing to bet those who have the least amount of money are the wolves! Let me see your credit statements. Pronto!
    I mean, look at mine!

    *pulls out his bank statement*

    My gift bought me fame and fortune. I just have to make this story sell. Train, my man! Print this, 'Tycoon Killed By Werewolves!!!' Consider it a buisness venture."

    (gets on phone)

    Ok - print this on the next run - 'Terrorist Elves - Hijacking Christmas!'

  17. EricBess Active Member

    After a good night's sleep, two of you wake up a bit hungry, but anxious for tonight. The rest of you have some sort of vision, inspiration, call from a space alien, or whatever else it is you "do" to get information.

    The two wolves during the night realized who they were and also remembered who their hunting buddy is.

    You each leave your rooms and realize that the elves have already gone about their business, making toys in the hopes that you can clear this whole thing up in time for Santa to make his yearly run.

    OOC - Quite a few people are out for the holidays, so "tonight" will probably be early next year, but for those that are here, feel free to start up a conversation.
  18. Zigathon Registered Nerd

    Oh, I think everyone here should explain how they obtain their gift. I'll start.

    I lay on a big pile of money and think really hard about who's soul I wish to examine.

    Speaking of my money... I should get back to it.
  19. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I don't have any special gifts. But I made pancakes for breakfast. Here you go.

  20. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Last night, I focused on one individual and through my superior concentration was able to penetrate the fog of stupid that has embued this place..

    I am sorry to say, I did not happen to glance a wolf.

    Nevertheless, my gift has provided me with an ally in our fight.
