The following rules are similar to those in the WTB game modded by masoni88; however, there is a slight twist to it. Instead of one large group, players will be separated into four groups, five in Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin. You have the option to choose your house before round one begins, but if you do not choose, I will place you in one.

The boss is Lord Voldemort while the Rat is none other than Scabbers A.K.A. Peter Pettigrew.

Edit: Every round I will post a riddle. You may only discuss the riddle in your house TB. You will get points if your house solves the clue. If you solve the riddle, you may post who it points to, but not how you solved it. The Rat and TB will also share their own TB and will have their own set of riddles to solve in order to deduct points from all houses. More about this will come later.


House solves a clue: +1 point
Rat solves a clue: -2 points
Boss solves a clue: -3 points
Player writes in color of house: +1 point

100% of points able to earn: Simple boss clue
90% of points able to earn: Easy rat clue
70% of points able to earn: Easy clearing clue
50% of points able to earn: Moderate clearing clue
30% of points able to earn: Hard clearing clue
10% of points able to earn: Hard rat clue
> 0% of points able to earn: Impossible boss clue
0% of points able to earn: No clue
< 0% of points able to earn: Misleading clue


Gryffindor:

I guess there were quite a few people who couldn't handle the pressure of being a witch/wizard at Hogwarts. Congratulations to those who made it to round two. Riddles will most likely remain the same, but clues are going to become more difficult. I will be back later with your next riddle.

I guess I'll start the voting off with a random for sonic, though I am willing to change for any majority that pops up later after the riddles.

I put a vote on Aragorn for now, just because she's at the top of the list. LOL

I find it weird that I can vote for myself as Boss. What would happen if someone were the Candidate, but also voted for themselves?

Oh, and is there a tally of the house points anywhere? Or are those private?

This is only my second game but voting for oneself may be helpful for the rat - a rat votes for his or herself to be the majority instead of the boss? Just a thought.

Fintpops: what would happen is theey are put on the firing list and can be fired.
Srbaxi: rats cannot vote.

We have a fairly active, though not over-active, boss. So either the boss is someone who is posting fairly regularly (like me, but you know I'm not the boss) or who is not posting at all. I'm randomly choosing jpost out of the five or six players who fit either one of those descriptions.

Excerpt #2:

"Very good, Argus," Umbridge said. "You two," she went on, gazing down at Fred and George, "are about to learn what happens to wrongdoers in my school."
"You know what?" said Fred. "I don't think we are."
He turned to his twin.
"George," said Fred, "I think we've outgrown full-time education."
"Yeah, I've been feeling that way myself," said George lightly.
"Time to test our talents in the real world, d'you reckon?" asked Fred.
"Definitely," said George.
And before Umbridge could say a word, they raised their wands and said together, "Accio Brooms!"

What makes you think the boss is active but not over-active?

One of four
Bloodline pure
History and secrets
I buried them low and deep

Listened
Spoke
Disagreed
Left

If you heard me speak
You may not understand
But the last words your hear
Were my sole command

I left behind
My virtues; my beliefs
And one day
My work will be finished


Who am I?

It took the boss about a day to get in both memos. While it is true that the mod also has to approve the memos, we have a very active mod. So I imagine that the boss checks in on this game about once or twice a day.

Edit for color

With having to battle off trolls and dementors, I've been pretty busy. Instead of a clue within each TB, I am posting a difficult boss clue.

Solved it!

Atbash cipher, which comes out translated as:
had a family member who came and contact with and/or was killed by voldemort

which leads me to believe Hannah Abbott - I'm changing my vote to lissiclown! Hannah Abbott seems to be the only possibility.

so I must have missed my invite. Yeesh, even in the cyberworld, I'm the weirdo odd man out.

Now see what I say about not remembering minor characters. I can't even recall who Hannah Abbott is. But you sound like you know srbaxi so I will follow your lead on this. I know, I know, this makes me a perfect shot as a lemming.

Well, somebody in my supposed talkbox (sonic) should let me know what I did wrong because the only talkboxes I was ever in on were those I was invited to.

ok, that's not as obvious as srbaxi says, it could be pretty much anyone. a family member that came in contact with voldemort,could be a weasly, as ron met voldemort as he ran with harry, could be Hannah abbot, maybe Cedric, if your one of those people that considers yourself in your family, and therefor a family member, same with Luna,and bellatrix and crabbe both have death eater family, who have most decidedly met voldemort.
ya, just wanted to point that out, even though it doesn't help much:/sorry.

i'll vote for lissiclown too.

i'm not really sure i get the psych question and answer...the boss obviously thought it's talking about school though.

jpost did you get your talkbox yet? maybe you should talk to the mod if you didn't get one.

to tiger lily: couldn't be a Weasley, both are cleared, and I wouldn't consider Cedric as Cedric's family member. I think the clue was worded as came in contact with/was killed by because there's not a lot of info about this character, and Hannah Abbott fits this profile.

I think that it was Madam Bones who got killed in 6th book. btw before you accuse anyone (not saying that lissiclown is not the boss) make sure that it was Voldemort who killed them, not one of the Death Eaters. If it was one of the Death Eaters, me and iams would fit into that category because Fred was killed by one of Voldemort's followers. Back to lissiclown though, would you count Cedric as her friend? Because he was killed by Voldemort.

Still sticking w/ random for jpost as we have a majority on lissi.

I'm not saying you're wrong with Hannah Abbot, but the clue says "came into contact with and/or was killed by Voldemort." That means that they met him and died, OR they met him, OR he killed them. Lotsa people met him but weren't killed by him (ie: pretty much everyone who fought that final battle but lived). Or, for example, Bellatrix....

I will change my vote to lissiclown, too, to make sure we have a majority. But I think the clue we have is waaay vague. Either that or I'm thinking too hard about the wording. LOL

It could point to dawnrising(george weasley) as well, right?.. b'coz arthur weasley was bitten by Nagini(came in contact) in book 5. Anyway, even I'm going fwd with the Majority, lissiclown
