The Flying Diablos pulled out of the station with a metal on metal screeching as the wheels slipped on the icy tracks. The conductor sat down heavily on his bed in the brake van at the back of the train. Thinking to himself that It was going to be a long slow trip to their next destination, Stonesmile Viaduct, thanks to this awful weather. He sighed heavily and lay down to get some sleep.
The next morning the passengers gathered in the dining car, chattering quietly to one another about how late the train was likely to be as they took their seats. Staff came in from the kitchen and began delivering hearty cooked breakfasts, the mood in the room began to lighten up as people dug into bacon and eggs. A member of kitchen staff came out with another breakfast and... looked slightly confused, everyone already had their breakfast!
As the passengers finished off their breakfasts the head conductor entered the front of the carriage and attracted everyones attention to make an announcement "Ladies and Gentlemen I'm afraid I have some extremely disturbing news to deliver. Yesterday we checked 18 people onto the train, this morning only 17 people are here. The train has not stopped all night and has been travelling at a high enough speed to kill anyone who attempts to leave! I am afraid I must conclude that the passenger @INovaeFlavien has been murdered!" The passengers gasped, and then all started talking at once throwing accusations and insinuations around the room.
It Is Now Day 1, Flavien has been killed
The day will end in 48 hours
The Train Is Currently At Stonesmile Viaduct. Special Rule: Players killed during the day and night will be thrown off the bridge and their corpse may not be further interacted with.
This game has 2 new mechanics that have been introduced.
The train travels during the night, and then stops during the day. Each day the passengers must vote where the train will go during the next night. Passengers may vote for any previously visited destination or the next unvisited destination.
For today, available Destinations Are:
- Return to Panic Station (No Special Rules).
- Stay at Stonesmile Viaduct (Dead players cannot be further interacted with).
- Advance to Redwater (Famous Market Town, players may buy and sell items in the town).
This game several roles which require items to work, the items they require are not all in their possession, instead they are distributed amongst the players. Every player has an inventory of items and may freely trade them with other players, include the GM in all private messages discussing trades, and then notify him (say @martindevans in your message) when a trade is complete. Player inventories (in the original role message) will be updated ASAP.
Additionally, players may reveal publicly that they possess an item. To do so, simply announce that you have the item and notify the GM. The GM will confirm the veracity of the announcement (fake announcements are not banned, but of course they will not be confirmed).
