Default New Game: Lynch the exam committee!

Once upon a time the students of the Rebel Outpost Actuarial Society were waiting on the results of their last exam. Unbeknownst to them, the exam committee had been hijacked by a band of students desperate to keep the other students from obtaining their FROAS. This band, not content with merely changing grade reports, set out to execute the remaining students. In an effort to protect their future and the honor of the FROAS designation, the students will attempt to unmask and lynch the members of the ersatz exam committee.

Here are the ground rules:
  • Once the student population is set (by you all expressing interest), I will randomly select the memberes of the exam committee.
  • The exam committee will know who else is on the exam committee.
  • The game starts when the exam committee PMs me with their first victim. I will then PM the victim who can write their own ending.
  • What follows next is open discussion among the students as to who might be on the committee, and by public voting for lynching. Once a majority of the remaining students (which includes the committee) votes for a particular student, he or she will get lynched. After the lynching, I will reveal whether the lynchee was a member of the committee.
  • Voting is a follows: use BOLD to highlight votes and vote changes. Don't use bold for anything else. This is so I can try to follow the vote counts.
  • After a lynching, or after deadline passes without a majority selecting someone, the committee will pick another victim.
  • The committee wins if they rubout all of the other students. The students win if they lynch all members of the committee.
  • Depending on interest there will be 2-4 members of the committee to start. I think a starting ratio of about 7:1 will work.
  • I am leaning toward having executions once or twice per week.

Interested?

It takes a truly sick mind to dream up something like this.

I'm in.

I wish I were that creative. I adapted game I saw elsewhere. There are many variations described there, but I thought we could start more slowly.
