It is now Night 1, no posting!
Petco was bored. Really bored.
"We're in the middle of no where," Petco thought. "The sentry runes will pick up anything living or dead or worse within 1000 feet. Yet they still insist I patrol here."
He conjured a trio of fireballs and launched them at the wall, being sure to disperse them before they hit. Petco had learned quite well after his last "incident", in which he took out an entire stone column. Not that it mattered; the columns were strictly for decoration. The "people" who had built the portal complex ages ago had no need for masonry. But Petco had, of course, been told to remake the column anyway.
"I assure you, whoever would have need of this place could care less," Petco had told im_lost."We're guardians, not janitors."
"So should we blow up all the columns then?" said im_lost
"Well no," responded Petco. "But the portal will function just fine without this column."
"No one even knows if the portal works anymore."
"Well obviously. I could test it for you if you're interested"
"And the demons would be over it in seconds. Just rebuild the column."
. . .
"Hey Thansal, could you go with me to get the book on higher order detection spells," said Theslan. Nobody was allowed to be in the library alone, for security and to protect the reader from trying to absorb too much.
"Why?" responded Thansal
"I sensed something..odd earlier," said Theslan
"Again? We're very close to a portal that uses energies inconceivable to any of us...with the possible exception of Freak83. Of course it's going to feel strange."
"This was different! We're all required to investigate anything suspicious, so come on!"
Thansal sighed and agreed to go with him to the library. This was defiantly not the first time Theslan had wanted to use that book, and the last time, Theslan found out what was being made for breakfast before the cookmage, Chocolate did.
. . .
Emp_Demon, Eternaly_Lost, Xentor, and Nightstalker were eating in the makeshift dining room. Well, truth be told they were done eating, but they stayed because it provided one of the few times each day where a large group of them was together. They amused themselves by playing lightning bolt ping-pong, which is just as dangerous as it sounds...to regular people. Everybody who had been chosen to guard the portal was powerful enough to level a town in an hour, a city in a day.(this does not mean that the city is 12 times the size of the town, rather, it means that the mage in question would, instead of using conventional methods like fireballs and chain lightning, spend the day channeling a spell to quite simply, level the city.) The lightning bolts could be deflected effortlessly.
"You aren't taking this job very seriously," said Ana.
"I will take it seriously when it becomes serious," replied Xentor, "Ow!" he said. Emp_Demon and Nightstalkerhad chosen to double attack Xentor as he was talking.
Ana shrugged and sat down on the other side of the room.
Number of wolves:3
Rules: Standard with the following changes
New human special role: Priest
The priest can resurrect one(1) dead person(human or otherwise) during
the night or day. The person will come back to life whenever said day
or night ends. If the priest dies before using his resurrect, it will
be gone forever. Because of the possibility that you will return to the game,
talking to other people, dead or otherwise, is forbidden after you are dead,
1.If the seer seers a wolf, the wolves will be told which one of them
was seered. They will receive this information when the seer gets his
response from the host. I'm hoping this will cause some more
interesting strategies to unfold since the wolves will have been
warned that someone out there knows about them.
2.The wolves will be told if the psychic dies. For use in faking a
psychic or seer(or just feeling comfy).
3.The guardian can't protect the same person 2 days in a row. He can
protect them every other day.
Welcome to TWG XII! Remember that nothing will happen the first night, you don't need to send me any PMs. I am sending out the role PMs now. This will include PMs for humans.
The roles were picked by random.org's sequence maker. I wrote the story before selecting the roles. Trying to guess the roles from the story is pointless.
Night 1 will end Friday, April 6th at 9 PM EST.
