Here are the current rules:

Here is the (current) list of possible roles:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Definitions:
    Doppelganger: These foul creatures kill and eat humans, taking on all of their memories and abilities. Once they have a form, most doppelgagners cannot change again. They are a flawed species, and possess and uncontrollable bloodlust forcing them to kill and eat humans each night. Their goal is to destroy all of the humans in the town and make their way out into the larger world.
    Night Kill: Any kill that happens during the Night Phase. The Doppelgangers each get 1 Night Kill as a group, in addition to any allowed by Roles.
    Morningkill: A morning kill happens between the night and day phase, and cannot be prevented by abilities that prevent night kills (Such as the Guardian). A Morning Kill will always look like it recently happened.
    Abduction: When a player abducts another player, two things happen. First, the abducted player is role-blocked for the night. Second, that player is removed from play for that night (and possibly the game). While removed, they cannot be the target of any other night action and cannot vote or be lynched during the day. Exceptions: The Paranoid War Vet and Sentry Gun are not role-blocked by an abduction, and will kill the player attempting the abduction. Abducted players are not role-flipped until their abductor leaves the game.



I've written a perl script to pick roles and whatnot randomly. It has some rules that it follows, but it should make for a nice amount of randomness to the set-up. Note that while I'll generally just go with whatever it spits out, I may make modifications to the set-up in order to make a more interesting game or to test out a specific feature. Also note that I will intentionally mess or not mess with stuff just to screw up anyone depending on the Gambler's Fallacy.

Note that the script NO LONGER restricts most roles to only one or two per side. Being able to use meta-game deduction to determine that someone must be town/scum breaks the game, so I've removed the aspects of the game that allow that.

Not all roles are guaranteed. In fact, it's quite possible to have a game with nothing but normal doppelgangers and humans.


General Rules:

  Feel free to ask for clarification on any rule.

Most of the time when someone is described as politically correct they are simply correct.

I've yet to play Paranormal... so IN!

Questions:

Does the Xenozoologist know the species of the players they've caught?

Why do only some roles have a 'visible role' mentioned?/Are these meant to be 'visible race' instead (for FBI investigating purposes)?

Yes, the Xenozoologist knows how they've caught.

Visible roles are listed for any roles that show something other than their actual roles when inspected.

Do players know if they're a kook?

I assume you use a script to build set-ups. What's the chances of a player being a vanilla human?

Yes.

Eh..it varies. But you do get one or two a game, usually.

Is a spore-seeder win mutually exclusive with other players winning?

Yes, except for the Xenozoologist who can win anyway (since that can happen before the game otherwise ends).

Is there a limit to how many actions you can take a night (could a player use both a stun bomb and a scanner in the same night)?

Are all items unlimited-use unless listed otherwise?

Other than not doubling-up, is there a limit to how man items a player can hold?

Most of them say if they use up your action or not. In that case, yes, since the scanner doesn't use an action but the stun bomb does.

Yes.

No.

In. Been a while since we had some good Paranormal action around here.

You know, it's fucking uncanny how many times people scream that Jim is out to get them and has rallied the town to destroy them, like he's the head of some damn conspiracy theory or something.  I've learned to recognize this as something I call "The Jimbot Fallacy".

What would happen if every other player in the game targeted the veteran in the same night?

What happens if someone ties the vote at the end of a day where the players have to kill a bloom spore spreader?
