Scales: Secret Lizard (OCC)

Postby Harbertia » Thu May 03, 2018 6:47 pm

Scales: Secret Lizard is a Mafia style courtroom game where in one or more players is secretly a Lizard Person. The present scenario is set in a world where Lizardfolk have demolished much of mankind. The scenario takes place in a courtroom within one of Humanity's strongholds where someone stands accused of being a Lizard. Someone is the accused, someone is the defense attorney, someone else prosecutor while the OP is Judge. Witnesses for both cases; defense and prosecution are present. The Lizards win either by having an innocent accused sentenced as a Lizard or by saving the Lizard who is accused.

No one gets to choose if they are a Lizard or not- such roles are randomly determined by chance save in that only one attorney can be a Lizard. Players sign up for the game and are assigned roles when the IC starts; they make a character on the fly for each round.. Lizards know who other Lizards are but Humans know not who other Humans are.

The Stronghold's court system is not one of 'Trial by Jury' - the Judge determines based on the arguments, evidence, etc weather the accused is guilty or innocent.

There is no established application or lore; just the scenario where upon players are to imagine a character to be and working off of the posts of others attempt to achieve their faction's goal in this trial.

Once a sentencing is announced the game concludes with the players revealing their roles on the OOC as the victorious faction becomes apparent 8)

After a game players may elect to play again and another round will start. Each case will last no more then 30 pages and no less then 10. Once 30 pages are reached the Judge (the OP) will have to make judgement before the 31st page begins.

At least three players are needed for this scenario; two lawyers, and the accused. More however will make for a more interesting game. Faction members are encouraged to communicate with one another via TG to further their objective though with Humans not knowing which among them is a Lizard; well they may contact the wrong person.

Excellent; I've altered the set up so that rather then players making characters before receiving a role players will introduce their character when the IC starts thus allowing us to play multiple rounds more easily. I've also added proceedings to the court for more flowing gameplay.

Court Proceedings have been altered. i think I mentioned it but this is an experimental concept- thankfully the changes do not effect present IC activity as the changes do not impact what we have so far.

Edit: Additionally the next game will permit for a panel of judges who shall review the case and over TG derive to a verdict based on what is presented. Such a panel will only take place should enough players enroll for the 2nd round.
