    How is an Undercover role implemented online? I've only experienced it first time irl.

    Basically, someone with a win condition of the town winning but is in the wolf chat and seen as another wolf. I don't see how it could work unless the person with the undercover role doesn't actually know it's true rolecard.

    Yea, pretty much what I thought. I'd love to implement it but I just don't see how. I don't like the suggestions...

    Well yea, pretty much can't the way I see. That's why I asked if there was a logical way around it besides severe speech restriction but even then...

    My point is that it's a good way to make players hate you.

    Hell, you could even make the player only be able to vote, and post a single word. Doesn't matter. So long as the player can post, then players will come up with a way to read them. Hell, if I drew that role with a post restriction and the ability to vote, i'd vote and then unvote each scum player in turn, and then vote myself, suicide, and let my flip win me the game with town as they mop up.

    Exactly, the idea just seemed cool :-\.

    Cool != Fair.

    Being a good mod means fairness to your players above enjoyment of your setup.

    Please don't put that in that setup. I respect you to much to let you do that.

    Meh. Bastard roles are fun and keep it from feeling like you're playing the same game over and over. Just not more than 1-2 in the same game.

    With an undercover role I doubt you need anymore obscure roles in the game lol.

    Ehhhh depending on how bad we're talking.

    Jester, for example, absolutely is not "fun."

    Judas/Saulus is close to that, as such a role can easily destroy a game.

    Originality in roles isn't bad, but roles that are destructive to the game are a different story.

    I've just been reading WW I on site (sshh introduction to sociology is boring). I know that I occasionally get frustrated in games, but I guess it's good to know that we come from a darker place with even less activity and loads of flavour-based reasoning. Also whaaaat @baby_mario used to play WW?

    I move to eliminate the all caps, specific UNVOTE, while standing on your head, and whistling Dixie rules. If a voter's intent is clear that should be all that matters. An UNVOTE isn't so crucial as it's implied by voting for someone else since you can only vote one player at a time. All the current rules do is allow for voting shenanigans.

    You'll be happy to know that at least 2 of the next 3 games will be making adjustments to voting rules.

    Also, if anyone would like to vary the setups from what has become expected of every game (FTC setup) I'll be happy to co-mod from the ground up.
