King points at someone who starts to get upped for claim but is missing a vote.

Random players: “we should have known king was evil when he didn’t point”

Once you have figured it out, vote them up. Remember to check the class cards for information about each class!” [the player is given infinite time and is also given a hint button]

[reminder of people in the game: the player (assassin), the mastermind, the butler claim, the knight claim and the court wizard claim

The evidence in dead people’s logs:

  • the phys exhumed the chronomancer as a sorc kill

  • the noble gossiped one of the knight’s defends

  • the drunk succesfully debauched the knight to someone who didn’t die

  • people were occupied targetting the butler on N4 when he claimed a party

  • [one occupation every night]

  • the princess wisped the butler as not attacking

  • The court wizard claims a nado which didn’t redirect someone

  • the princess flirted the court wizard as killer/offensive

    Hint button: this opens up people’s logs and highlights a piece of evidence

    Whoever you vote on immediately gets voted up by the Mastermind, who says that it is incompatible with the dead drunk. The Mastermind whispers to you “I hope you are right”. Whatever you voted for gets upped and executed.

Not sure how easy this would be to implement. But I like the ideas here a lot.

I vaguely remember seeing posts in the past that sounded like the tutorial was a bit hard to work with, but I really like this conceptually (although I don’t know how feasible it is) and do think it’d be a major step forward from the current one.

I don’t know if VFR as a meta is going to stay permanently, though, so maybe this part could be revised


Too long of a tutorial, allot of players would quit and refund before finishing a 30 minutes tutorial
