Welcome to my 5th WTB game,
Life in the City
(Those willing to join who are not on my friends list, send me a PM!)

Haya there, welcome to my next WTB game, Life in the City (LitC). In this game everyone has a different role. The game will most likely be a casual roleplay. Basically at the beginning of each post you must post a small paragraph (3-4 lines) outlining some things your character did, and basically outline your suspicions and such in a RP form. Then you can post the same things (vote, discussion, suspicions, anything you do in a normal WTB game) in an Out of character (OoC) format. While the roleplay is casual and rather light, any players refusing completely may be modfired.

"It's been one week since the selection. And whoever the new mayor is, I hate them to bits. From what I see, the city is changing quickly. It won't be long and the whole city will be in chaos...stupid Custardians and their new rules," argued Sir Harrison to the barkeeper. "I tell you, the more powerful they are the less free we become! And for all we know, he's out here all the time. Blending in with the general community." The barkeeper was used to hearing people's political beliefs, and as he simply nodded to Sir Harrison's argument he began to close up for the night.

Of course, Sir Harrison was right. The Custardian party was not your average council. No one knew what they were doing to the city, butmany people believed that they were a part of some secret criminal orginisation. And now they were officially the council of the Municipality of Blunt City. But there's ways to stop a runaway train...

Every week, the Mayor of Blunt City sends out information to the public in order to address specific areas of concern, usually containing more regulations or even a new law. However through observation of the city's events, a group of individuals, representing the city's freedom, are working on the case and trying to work out who's the mayor.The city is also greatly watched over by the council manager, who's primary objective is to protect the mayor in the case of riot. Of course, he seems to be anywhere and everywhere, in the know of people's beliefs of who the mayor is.

If the city is to ever become normal, it's up to the Freedom Committee...


Roles:
Mayor(Boss)
Council Manager(Rat)

Some (basic) example roles:
Barkeeper
Shopkeeper
Businessman/Businesswoman
Bus driver
Teacher
etc.

But you are strongly encouraged to be creative and create your own!

The way it works: At the beginning of each round, I will post a short story highlighting the events. At that time it represents wake-up time for more people, so your RP should involve waking up, breakfast, going to work etc. In your roleplay paragraph, you can include anything you wish, ie Visting people/places, talking to people, and of course outlining your votes/suspicions in a RP form. You can refer to people's votes simply as their vote, whilst when talking about something someone has posted, refer to it as something someone has said. Of course, in the OoC part of your post you do what you would do in any WTB game.

The memo of course, is to be completely in character. No other special rules apply to the memo.

When players are fired, they have been arrested as they have been caught campaigning against the council. If the boss correctly guesses his rat (limit one guess per two rounds) then they can have a private TB.

And I'll be adding special things into the game too (it won't get too complex, don't worry such as the shop (available from round one.)

Anyway, you've probably heard enough

Current players:
(Player: Role)
koin_era345: Store owner
dcf525: Barkeeper
HarryPutter: Paramedic
celtichero: Lawyer (a la Mike Ross )
JQPublic: Antique shop owner
kitty-cat: Librarian
SirHar: Reverend
buu441: Butcher

And never worry if it's too complex to understand, there'll be plenty of help along the way!

Shouldn't the rat be the police officer? someone's gotta arrest the employees.

I'll be a store owner.

@JQ: its not too similar in my opinion. I run a sort-of general store, while you specialize in antiques. OC can be the judge though.

Please do resist koin! I need you here!

And the antique shop owner is fine, would make a good location for some robberies

I also need to let you know that I will be camping from tommorow until the 28th. I'll be able to come back on the afternoon of the 28th, and when you think about it that's only two nights that I can't check braingle (I would normally be at school during the day)

Don't leave! Please

Har, you do realise that movie was released in '76 right? My guess would be that most of the young'uns on here haven't even heard of it, let alone seen it. I haven't seen it in years. Now I want to watch it again! Of course unlike you, I didn't see it during its original run, I was still in diapers!

I will be a reporter btw

In my experience secrets can't be kept a long time. Don't expect to remain unknown for long

Anyway, I still haven't chosen a role, but I did say it would be last minute panic. I'll choose a journalist mainly because I'm watching the news. It's nice how TV can influence the decisions we make.
