Doom of the WereYak, Part Two: Kabool, 850
It is the Two Hundred and Thirty Fifth Year after the Hijra, and everywhere, the Faith of the One God is triumphant. But to the East, in the high deserts and forbidding mountains, there lurks a mighty and terrible foe to the People of the Book.
The Lamas, who claim descent from the dead, rule over a vast and powerful empire that reaches to the ends of, and the roof of, the world. Their legions of ferocious cavalry pour down from their treacherous fortresses and threaten to overturn the rule of the Prophet and the Faithful.
And so, the Kaliph has raised an army to send against the Tibethians, starting with their fortress-city of Kabool. A small party of dedicated warriors is sent from Baghdad on a secret mission--to scout the territory and to determine an invasion route for the Soldiers of God.
But the Lama of Kabool has the use of foul magic, and has learned of this mission. In response, he has sent his most abominable champions to infiltrate and destroy these righteous men: the MALICIOUS WEREYAKS!!!
Can the Soldiers of God discover and root out the sorcerous shapechangers in their midst? Or will the WereYaks ensure the triumph of idolatry and madness that rules over their land?
There shall be seventeen (17) players. Special Roles will be handed out after the last person signs up. Only Special Roles will get a PM.
The game will then proceed to a Day deadline.
The game is divided into two periods - "night" and "day". For practical reasons these two periods take place at the same time, from one update till the next.
Each day, all players gather and decide to lynch one of the players - the person they think is most likely to be a werewolf. Each night, the werewolves decide who to kill. In each 24 hour period, the village will lynch, and the werewolves will hunt. The villagers can try to lynch multiple people by creating a glorious, Lemeard-approved, TIE, and the werewolves can also decide not to hunt anyone at all at night. Beware of Crovaxian slips, Mr. Gs, and the game getting completely YUBAR'd as well!
The werewolves win if they manage to reach parity with the villagers.
The villagers and seer win if they manage to kill all the werewolves.
Players are encouraged to role play as characters from the 1,000 and One Arabian Nights and other similar fictional and historical characters.
