    When the Guard abilities activate (Killing and self-defense), his identity is revealed.

    Also, many of the old players are no longer even active in the MR forums. @curmudgeonette

    Unfortunately, that seems to be true.

    Some of them such as @Don't panic, (a terrific poster and an outstanding WW player), I haven't seen online for quite some time.

    Hopefully we can cajole a few new folks into joining for a game. Not that I’ve been playing for more than a single game....

    Here's a memory:

    I participated in my first WW game in 2011, and went for a drive and a walk on the sea front promenade in the bright summer evening wth my mother, who was then still able to drive - not far - and also not much able to walk, so she sat in the car - as I plotted (yes, I had been assigned a role I had never conceived possible I never played D&D) whom to despatch (and no, in that first game, I wasn't a WW, I was a different antagonist), while I walked at a furious pace (that I couldn't match now, alas).

    Now, seven years later, I am still playing these games (and hurrah for that) and my mother has very advanced dementia, the sort where she knows nobody - apart from occasional disquieting flashes of insight and memory -

    As reanimation is a feature of this game, can the wolves infect a dead player? (For this to be useful, they'd have to trick the witch into bringing that player back...)

    Not in any game I have played, unless the dead player had bee resurrected by a player that had been assigned that power - i.e a guard with special powers - in the game (and yes, I actually did that in one game).
    --- Post Merged, Nov 16, 2018 ---
    Usually, the WW games allow the WWs to PM one another, but the village 'specials' - who are usually confined to the positions of something approximating to (depending on numbers) 'guard' (who protects) and 'seer' (who identifies) are not allowed to PM one another.

    This means that 1) the cannot share information and/or suspicions, and 2) may be open to infection.

    Mind you, 'protection' by a 'guard' will protect from both death (if you have had the misfortune to have been targeted targeted by WWs that particular night) and attempts at 'infection' (which is usually a one off, meaning that the WWs have a single attempt to infect some misfortune creature).

    Wolves can only infect people who are alive.

    I don't like to think the worst but something happened to him that caused him to immediately stop posting without notice.

    I fear that he might have passed away.

    His last post.

    Such a rookie. ;)

    I'm IN, since it looks like you're having problems making 14. However, i dont know how well I'll be able to play (see my latest posts in Top 50 thread).

    Thanks to Pluto, for letting me know about this game.

    Dont worry old friend. You’ll be fine. This game will most likely be played by many new players as hardly any old players have signed up.

    Here is to hoping we can get people signed up.

    If and when it kicks off, it will take place slowly.

    Okay thanks. I don’t want to kill the game because I’ve missed an important PM.

    Thanks! Perhaps you can let me know who the WW's are? ;)

    Why do you think we'll get new players?

    Ganes happen slowly. “Nights” take 24 real world hours and voting in the “day” takes 48 real world hours. You’ll have plenty of time. Also, keep in mind that if you get selected as a special. You can pre-select your actions should you want to. For example, you can preselect who to guard from danger if you are the guard.

    Personally, I think this whole drinking in Germany story of Apple fanboy’s is a ploy to deflect attention from a hungry wolf....

    Dark in the city night is a wire
    Steam in the subway earth is afire
    Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo
    Woman you want me give me a sign
    And catch my breathing even closer behind
    Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo
    In touch with the ground
    I'm on the hunt down I'm after you
    Smell like I sound I'm lost in a crowd
    And I'm hungry like the wolf
    Straddle the line in discord and rhyme
    I'm on the hunt down I'm after you
    Mouth is alive with juices like wine
    And I'm hungry like the wolf
    Stalked in the forest too close to hide
    I'll be upon you by the moonlight side
    Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo
    High blood drumming on your skin it's so tight
    You feel my heat I'm just a moment behind
    Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo
    In touch with the ground
    I'm on the huntdown after you
    Scent and a sound
    I'm lost and I'm found
    And I'm hungry like the wolf
    Strut on a line it's discord and rhyme
    I howl and I whine I'm after you
    Mouth is alive all running inside
    And I'm hungry like the wolf
    Hungry like the wolf
    Burning the ground I break from the crowd
    I'm on the huntdown I'm after you
    I smell like I sound
    I'm lost and I'm found
    And I'm hungry like the wolf
    Strut on a line it's discord and rhyme
    I'm on the hunt down I'm after you
    Mouth is alive with juices like wine
    And I'm hungry like the wolf
    Burning the ground I break from the crowd
    I'm on the huntdown I'm after you
    Scent and a sound
    I'm lost and I'm found
    And I'm hungry like the wolf
    Strut on a line it's discord and rhyme
    I'm on the hunt down I'm after you
    Mouth is alive


    Just in case that got lost on anyone!

    I think with Apple fanboy's latest post, we can be sure he is a WW for this game.

    Yes, those German forests and folk tales........

    Can well imagine that @Apple fanboy has come under their benign (or malign) influence.
