    *Will not be creating an observer room/allowing observers if I have 0 replacements lined up (ideally would like to have 2+)

    -Going to flesh this out a lot more later, but wanted to get the signups rolling. Most recent game of Witch Hunt with a decent setup I could find is here: http://www.fantasystrike.com/forums/index.php?threads/witch-hunt-14.12039/
    Probably going to grab details from there and then we can discuss balance/etc. in here before the game gets going.

    -Probably aiming to start next weekend, plus or minus a few days depending on level of interest

    -Leaning towards either A) 5 day Day / 2 day Night OR B) 72 hour Day / 24 hour Night OR C) a good suggestion for day/night cycle lengths

    We should start thinking about what roles we're going to cut; prooooobably not hitting 15 people?

    Priest
    Apprentice
    Assassin
    Dirty Old Bastard
    Fanatic
    Gravedigger
    Gambler
    Hunter
    Inquisitor
    Judge
    Loose Cannon
    Nurse
    Pagan
    Spiritualist
    Survivalist

    At first blush, I'd say get rid of a KP role - Assassin, maybe?, then maybe Moonlight Pagan?
    KaiDASH, thoughts?

    *14, not 15. Forgot we're dealing witches an extra role.

    Realistically 2 more signups to have a runnable game (the more the better though!)

    You should tag everyone who's played in the last ~3 games or so.

    Urgh... I'd like to join this but my interest just isn't there. Maybe a non-Witchhunt variant later on when I know I've got more time I could invest in my team properly, sorry Citrus.

    Is this the ruleset we're using? That’s sure a lot of roles to pare down…

    If we’re playing with eleven people and need an extra role for a witch swap, then this might be a good list:

    1. Priest - Each night, you may check if a target is in the Witch Coven.
    2. Acolyte - At the start of the game, you learn who has the Priest role.
    3. Gravedigger - At the start of each night, you learn the cards of anyone who died that day.
    4. Apprentice - At the start of the game, you may select Judge or Gravedigger. You will learn who has that role, and take over their duties if they die.
    5. Inquisitor - Each night, you may check if a target is holy or not.
    6. Survivalist - You start the game with an extra life.
    7. Gambler - At the start of the game, pick even or odd. On those nights (but not days), you are protected from a kill.
    8. Fanatic - When the Priest checks you, you are secretly notified and gain an extra life.
    9. Benevolent Old Dame - Once per game when your death is announced, you may give a target other than yourself an extra life.
    10. Judge - At the end of any day the players fail to select a target to hang, you may privately decide yourself. This ignores extra lives.
    11. Dirty Old Bastard - Once per game when your death is announced, you may kill a target.
    12. Loose Cannon - During any day (before time is up), you may reveal this card. Sacrifice yourself to end the day and personally decide who to hang.

    Any opinions?
