    Default Garden in the Hot House

    Brr, it is getting cold outside!

    But it is cozy and warm here in the greenhouse, all is well with the wor......WAIT!!!!

    What is this?

    What is going on here....

    *GASP*...

    INVADERS IN THE Hot House!!!





    The garden denizens: Not all roles may be used.

    Plant eaters:
    Cut Worm--ruthless leader of the plant eater factions, sends in the kills. Will kill ant, if Ant tries to recruit.
    White Fly--loyal henchman, when sent for the kill, distracts the investigators so much that they learn nothing about the role of the victim. Will kill ant if Ant tries to recruit. PM host.
    Aphids--eager to learn the trade and happy to do what they are told. Readily recruited by Ant.
    LBAM (light brown apple moth)--hides well and sees much, may investigate one person each evening. PM host.
    They may communicate with each other in private

    Bug eaters:
    Queen Bee---Highly influential, gets an extra vote....extra vote is PMed to host
    Worker Bee---because she is always out and about, she can see what her target has been up to. PM host to activate.
    Drone---the queen's mate, has unique powers of his own, subracts a vote, subtracted vote is PMed to host
    Praying Mantis---able to save one person per night, not able to save from lynches PM host
    Lady Bug Larva---can target one bug per night for elimination, will eat Ant if Ant tries to recruit PM host
    Parasitic Wasp---can use the special abilities to learn the role of the targeted bug PM host
    Lady Bugs---Having gotten over their youthful appetites they are the pretty happy go lucky residents of the garden.
    Monarch Butterfly---revered for its extreme beauty, distracts target from their appointed rounds PM host

    We will eat whatever:
    Spittle Bug---wants his fifteen minutes of fame, wants to go out in a blaze of glory, a death through which he will gain victory. Game continues after his death, but he does claim victory.
    Ant---the empire builder, can recruit one bug into her empire each night. But she has to be careful, some of the bugs are immune to her blandishments and will kill her for her efforts. Once a bug is recruited, private talk is allowed. PM host

    The Players:

    Kabooja Parasitic Wasp
    Jacana Praying Mantis
    Tyman Lady Bug Larva
    Blazin1 Queen Bee
    Gebne Cut Worm
    Anaxor Worker Bee
    Rokchick Monarch Butterfly
    Scarecrow Lady Bug>ant>Lady Bug
    Jason_Kroeker Lady Bug>ant
    Valynor White Fly
    MouseKeyboard LBAM
    Cmness Spittle Bug
    FTP Aphid
    Siveri Lady Bug
    Bw87 Ant...the boss ant
    Benedict Arnold Drone



    You know the drill, no PMing each other unless you are specifically allowed to do so. BE ACTIVE! Every one must post at least one non-voting post per 24 period. To vote be sure to bold vote, to unvote bold unvote.

    KP is at midnight PDT.

    Have fun

    The game is afoot.

    The roles have all been sent, if I missed anyone please let me know ASAP.


    Bug Eaters win!

    PDT is Pacific Daylight Time.
    PST is Pacific Standard Time.

    It's the US West Coast (except Arizona, which does not recognize daylights saving time and alternates between PST and Mountain, also technically not coastal).

    Vote: Blazin1
    Reason: Useless and horrible.

    It's the Pacific Standard Time, I think something borked on Sunday or daylight savings time or something. But I noticed it said Oct. 26th instead of yesterday when it was still 11PM.

    There was a post somewhere else in the forums about daylight savings messing up. It has to do with the fact that the rest of the world (and hence the German-based Travian forums) corrected daylight savings already, and North America doesn't do it til this coming weekend. The forum times will be 1 hour off of North American times this week. They should be corrected next week.

    Oh, and hello everybody. It sure is warm in this greenhouse here!
