Hello and welcome to the sign-up thread for Black Fable, a new murder mystery forum game based on Town of Salem (which is a game based on the campfire game Mafia).

Image


 Thirteen random people have just moved in to the newly founded town of Moonview nestled in the eerie and mysterious Woeful Woods that few people have dared to explore, despite the rumors of the land being home to ancient treasures, mythical items as well magical herbs and ingredients. Your characters are the first to brave into this land and build a home for themselves there, despite the warnings of a sinister force lurking in those parts. The Coven, a faction of dark magic users and supernatural beings, don't take too kindly to supposed tresspassers and pilferers, and have decided to disguise themselves as fellow explorers as a means to efficiently exterminate the townspeople one by one and reclaim the land they deem theirs. It is up to the Townies to find out and lynch whoever among them is a member of the Coven before they're quickly outnumbered.

Spoiler:
Gameplay notes
-Like in Town of Salem, everyone has a role, be it a Killing Role, an Investigative Role, or an Assist Role.
-Your role will allow you to gather personal evidence that the other roles might not have.
-It is up to you to reveal a lead at the risk of exposing your role to the rest of the group, potentially placing a target on your forehead.
-A killing phase will happen on a regular basis, and will allow everyone to perform their roles.
-A voting session will happen between each killing phase, but if not enough votes are collected for a townsperson, no one dies. If there is someone you think is guilty, you may want to present whatever personal evidence you may have to convince the others to vote for your target. If you're a member of the Coven and want to be sneaky, this evidence can be faked.
-If the Coven exterminate or outnumber the Townies, they win. If the Townies successfully get rid of all of the Coven members, they win.


Your character's actions will be recorded and sent to you in your personal QuickTopic, so make sure to check it during the night-time killing phases. You may also communicate with me on Discord (@TheLetterF#9040) to ask any questions or send in your plans in advance so that I can record them in time (keep in mind that you can change your mind at any point before the end of the killing phase). You can find a channel dedicated to this game in this server: https://discord.gg/avAEpQu . Using Discord is not mandatory, but is heavily encouraged for the sake of effective communication.

Please make sure to play fairly, as gamethrowing or cheating are strictly forbidden and just generally ruin the fun for everyone. So basically don't reveal anything you're not supposed to, post screenshots of your QuickTopic, etc,



 If you're interested, please sign up here and fill out the form, which includes a very short writing prompt. Once you're accepted, you will receive your role and then design your character.
Try to already think of what your character's motives/intentions could be (i.e why they decided to move to the town), be they a Townie or a Coven member.

This game will require the participation of everyone, so please remain active throughout it. Also bear in mind that there is a chance that death might not be the end for your character, so please try to pay at least some attention to the game even after you die.

The expected duration of Black Fable is approximately 3 weeks, so it is relatively shorter than the Danganronpa F and Nonary Games that have already taken place on this board.

Spoiler:
-play town of salem pls it's free, quick and online and will help you understand this game better

Sounds just like Mafia but with a lot more backstory.

I'll give the survey a look later on.

Worth noting that, from what I've seen, it plays out quite differently from Mafia. Vanilla Mafia is more about bluffing and psychological trickery, ToS is a bit more about hard evidence and using your role effectively. Apparently it's common in voting phases for some people to keep quiet if their role has nothing new to add to the discussion, and in ToS voting phases only last a minute or so.

Also, thought I posted earlier but apparently not: I'm signing up! And I've filled out the form.

The psychological part is still going to be present in this game, but the difference is that you also have personal evidence to back up your claims (unless you lie, which you can do.) Since the trials will take longer in this game (they'll last at least a day or two, I can grant more time if really needed), someone who is routinely silent could look suspicious.

Also, thanks for all the sign-ups so far guys. I've enjoyed reading through all your creative writing prompts :p

I thought of a character so I guess I'm obligated to sign up, filling the survey rn.


EDIT: also felt obligated to point out my prompt doesn't reflect anything about the character I have planned, which may be necessary to say if I want to have a chance to get in
Signature loading, please wait...

Yeah, don't worry too much about what exactly you write about in the writing prompt, as it won't have an effect on the actual story of the game.

Also, sign-ups will be open for a few more days, but if you're interested please submit your application forms sooner rather than later so that I can already start planning the role assignment process.

Also calling it early: SoCo is an insane murderer seems like he is typecast at this point :-P

First off, uncertain for now but it could be possible NG7 ends this week. Depends on how things turn out though.

Secondly, I didn't make my own character for both NGs I've been in, but I got to handcraft my character for this one. Just because I've been an insane murderer in 5 out of the 6 past forum games on here doesn't mean I have to be one again, technically. So it doesn't have to be this way! Not saying I'm not an insane murderer though I just want to make y'all think for once

Btw guys if you all Insta lynch me day one for no other reason than for the meme I'll make up the worst jokes ever just for you.

SO THINK ABOUT THAT HUH

Also in all seriousness, I'll be fine participating in both NG7 and BF simultaneously since the former is pretty close to ending anyway but I imagine others wouldn't as much, so yeah. JM especially considering he's the grand GM behind it all. I'm fine with the new date though.

"Hey guys," said a strange figure in a yellow hazmat suit, taking centre stage in the small, grassy clearing. "My name's Pétur Riolo, ready to settle down in this wonderful little village!"

Except I actually like your jokes, so that's not really much of a threat . . . .

In all seriousness, I'm happy with - and agree to - the new start date.
