Game Master’s Notes
Look! Deaths! Are you happy now? You bloodthirsty bastards. 😂
Well as frustrated as you may have been at the start of Day Two with no death reveals, you ended up with quite the eventful Day. Not only were questionable things happening with votes (poor Parmesan), but you ultimately managed to pull together in the end to eliminate a baddy by deadline.
That’s surely a sign you’re on the right track, right? Nothing will definitely go wrong from here… (heh heh heh)
But wait, Red London, White London, Rainbow London (okay, maybe no Rainbow London), how do we know which teams are good or bad?! Well, you don’t. Or at least, I’m not telling you. As with every game, I will only confirm the information specifically relating to you. Anything else you’ll have to figure out yourself. 😈
Oh oh oh. And I know some of you may be going, Cultafia? What the heck is that? Well it’s been FIVE YEARS since the last time such a thing was seen on The Bookish Games, but a Cultafia is a deadly mafia-cult combo that can choose to either recruit or kill players. If you want to see how such a thing worked previously, check out the Divergent edition.
Lastly, a small warning that BST ends this Sunday. As a result, all Day/Night deadlines will land at 9pm GMT instead. If you’re not located in the EU, this likely means that the deadline will shift a hour for you one way or another until Daylight Savings ends in your time zone.
I recommend using this Time Zone Converter to determine when the deadline will occur for you. London (where I live), the date and time for the next deadline are preset, you just need to add another city (where you live) to see what the conversion is. Hopefully that’ll help!
Okay, I think that’s everything. Good luck everyone! Let’s see what you can do.
It is now Day Three.
You have until Sunday 9pm GMT to discuss suspicions and cast your votes. Once the deadline has been reached, the person with the most votes will be eliminated.
