    The Last Holiday AG [Discussion Thread]


    Daily Post (DP) 0:

    I know what you did last holiday! I saw the many pairs of eyes shining brightly in the dark. They loomed wearily like death, observing the passing months. The eyes waited patiently for their time to come. And time came and time passed. And each time, a menacing figure would emerge from the dark, passing through the fog; hiding things in fields; hiding things in trees; hiding all manner of evil, behind facades of good will and cheer.

    But nothing missed my attention. I know what you did last holiday....and so do you! You thought you got away, but it's all coming back. It always comes back. Everything will come to pass again, and again, and again. So be prepared. The fog won't protect you forever. Who knows? This could be your last Holiday. MWAH-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!


    1. Read all the rules, notes, mechanics, and announcements posted by the GMs @Nikamara; @meru;].
    2. All Millennium Forums / Section rules apply.
    3. GMs are Almighty.
    4. If you are displeased with anything, please wait until the end of the game to discuss. If you cause disruption in the game, ruin the mechanics, and are disrespectful to the other players or to the GMs, you shall be GM killed outright.
    5. This is a PM game, meaning you are allowed to talk to fellow players in private, outside of the Discussion Thread (DT). Please enable your PM in order to play.
    6. Revealing the contents of your Role Sheet is allowed, but no screenshots of RS, or forwarding of the GMs quoted PM with your RS is allowed. Anyone caught breaking this rule will be GM killed.
    7. Be active by making 1 non-spam post in the DT, AND using an ability EACH DAY.
    Failure to post in the DT = -1.
    Failure to use an ability = -1.
    So if you are inactive you lose 2! Voting is not an activity requirement this time around.
    8. The dead do not talk. You cannot post in the DT, VT or PM other players about the game until it is over. Dead means dead.
    9. Rules, notes, and mechanics are all subject to change.
    10. Go Wild! Have fun ^-^. Beware of lies. Even I might lie to you ._. No seriously.

    Notes:


    1. Game will start on Saturday, December 17th, 2016 at 13:00 GMT-6.
    2. All days will last 24 hours, ending at 13:00 GMT -6.
    3. A reasonable amount of knowledge about holidays will help you, but is not necessary.
    4. Game is expected to last 4-7 days.
    5. It is helpful to PM your ability use at least 1 hour before the end of the day.
    6. All ability uses and changes should be PMed to me. Questions and riddle/truth guesses should go to meru.

    Factions:


    Spring [Civilian] Must eliminate Autumn.
    Summer [Civilian] Must eliminate Winter.
    Autumn [Civilian] Must eliminate Spring.
    Winter [Civilian] Must eliminate Summer.
    Rogue [Assassin] - Kill every other player in the game.

    PM Protocols:


    TLH A [for sending ability use]
    TLH AC [for changing your ability use]
    TLH Q [for asking a question]
    TLH R [for sending riddle guesses]
    TLH BS [for sending truth guesses in the hope of gaining bonus snowflakes]

    Ability Tree:


    SPECIAL 1 > SPECIAL 2 > SPECIAL 3 > SPECIAL 4 > SPECIAL 5 > BLOCK > ATTACK > HEAL > LYNCH

    Mechanics (How to Play):


    1. Each player starts the game with 4.
    2. You cant have more than 8. See bonus snowflakes below for details.
    3. When a player reaches 0, they die. When someone dies, their faction will not be revealed.
    4. Each player will receive a Role Sheet (RS) detailing their abilities. e.g.

    5. You can only use one active ability a day unless stated otherwise in your RS.
    6. You can change the target of your ability(s) as much as you like.
    7. If you have multiple abilities, you can change which one(s) to use as much as you like.
    8. Abilities are not time or random number generator (rng) based. Instead, they follow a priority basis detailed above in the Ability Tree. What this means is that all abilities of the same kind, or of equal priority, will work.
    9. To use your active(s) simply PM Nikamara who you want to use your ability on. It is helpful to quote your RS, but it is not necessary to do so ^-^7. (I understand that many are experiencing problems with the site). e.g.

    10. At the end of the day, a Daily Post (DP) will be published, detailing the events of day. e.g.

    11. If you cant find yourself in the DP, please inform me as soon as possible so that it can be edited.
    12. Game ends when Great Victory or higher is achieved. See your RS for details.


    Upgrade:

    1. By solving one of the riddles below, your RS can be upgraded. All of the answers are related to the theme of the game.
    2. You are allowed to make 1 guess on each riddle per day.
    3. You are allowed to gain only 1 upgrade. Therefore, if you get more than one riddle correct, you will receive the upgrade for the riddle with the higher difficultly and you will only be told that you got that one correct.
    4. After an upgrade has been unlocked, the corresponding riddle is void and no one else can get that upgrade.
    5. If more than one player guesses a riddle correctly, the winner will by picked at random to prevent the bias of living in an advantageous time zone and getting to answer first.
    6. The results of your guessing will be revealed at the end of the day.
    7. Please make you guesses by PMing meru; using the appropriate PM Protocol.

    Riddles


    Riddle 1 - Christmas Tree [Increase attack to 2 + restore up to 4]
    I can be dead or alive.
    I twinkle in the night,
    But Im not a star.

    Im bad, but Im so good.

    I directly conflict with what your parents taught you,
    Yet somehow, they allow me.


    Riddle 4 - Presents (Gifts) [Investigate 2 RS + restore up to 4]
    Its always my time.
    I come and go often.
    My appearance is never the same.
    But my purpose never changes.


    Riddle 5 - Easter Egg [Redirect + restore up to 4]
    Im always unique and unexpected,
    In this world or the next.
    But Im tough and Im cynical.
    And Im dead inside.


    Bonus Snowflakes:


    1. Discover the 4 truths behind the last holiday. These are things about the structure and mechanics of the game that havent been said.
    2. For each truth you uncover, you get 1. The max amount anyone can have is 8.
    3. Everyone can get extra snowflakes. Its is not about who gets it first. Its just about getting it. Whenever you do, a snowflake will be waiting.
    4. You are allowed to make 1 guess about the 4 truths each day.
    5. The results of your guessing will be revealed at the end of the day.
    6. Please make you guesses by PMing meru; using the appropriate PM Protocol.

    [Truth 1 = Factions are fake. Everyone is an assassin with the same RS.]
    [Truth 2 = The game is called The Last Holiday because only the last holiday left standing can win.]
    [Truth 3 = The targets are ordered by date, but in descending order.]

    I never cared for holidays - let's see if this'll bite me in the ass.

    to anyone urging to ask for the thousandth time, yes the red is intentional.

    Eh, White.

    You really only need to know the factions and attempt the riddles. The rest should fit into place when you know mafia, except PMing is up.

    to anyone urging to ask for the thousandth time, yes the red is intentional.

    I understand the riddle bit, but what are these snowflakes. Are they lives? What happens when someone is NK? Do they lose a snowflake or all of them?

    I need to smoke something before I wrap my head round this
