I don't appear to be in it. I find this objectionable.

Rikae, why did you want me dead?

I'm glad I finally caught an Aganwolf. I'm also glad I suspected Celuien and Cailín. And I'm glad that I decided to follow Roa's lead and vote Lalaith just to make sure. And I never caught Nilp or Dury...

Speaking of catching people, it occured to me on Day2 that tp might very well be the GW because of his constant "scry me!"-show. Also, I thought he was rather the GW than the hunter when he came out and even when Di came out, I was sure there was some serious ropleplaying involved, but as I semi-trusted them, I kept my mouth shut.

I find it very cute that Mac protected his little sister on Night1. *aww* Besides, if I had been Rikae, I would possibly have killed me on Night1, so not a bad pick at any rate.

I agree that this game was slightly unbalanced. Both teams were just incredible.

PS. I applied to be a wizard too (with a note that I'd prefer being the GW but EW would be fine too) but I had to back out just before Nogrod gave out the roles. My cousins might have come to visit and I wouldn't have had time for proper wizarding. They didn't come, but it would have been horrible for me to be a wizard with Greenie being in the same place 24/7 (accursed holidays)... .

Ok, so there are three albums.
One
Two
Three

I don't know what some people look like, so I created those sims according to their occupations & characters. I also chose the clothes they wear and their personal styles based on that.

I don't have an Isabell sim because I created all the families before I noticed she had joined, and I was frankly too lazy to create her afterwards, especially since I don't know what she looks like. Sorry Izz!

*is off to read all the comments her FB friends have made (there appears to be 61 of them )*

Aganzir, these are hilarious...did you get the characters to actually play?

Di...you are there, making candles. It took a while for me to find myself, but I am happy now, I love my dress! And I'm glad I was a nice mummy, even though I was a wolf...

Thanks. I'm not quite sure what you mean with the question, though.

Di was actually planning to eat the candle, you see.
And hey, I was a wolf, too, so it's just better that also you were one. At least we ended up dying on the same side.

What a fun game! Congrats to the village, and special thanks to Noggie for modding and Rikae and tp for some pretty amazing wizardry.

I was shocked the night I became a wolf - I thought not being around as much as I would have liked with all of the moving issues I'm having would have taken me off the list. I'm glad I got to plot for a little while though.

The sim pics are too funny, particularly the section with the duel.

Hilarious pics, Agan! For the record, I could recognise quite a few people (my short-lived self included).

Uh... why am I always "being rude"?

I don't know about McCaber, but the Gwath-sim looks pretty much like me, only in scruffy Portland grunge clothes. And with less-big muscles.

I don't know. The Nerwen sim came to visit several people and started immediately arguing with them and offending them.

Exactly what personality did you give this Nerwen sim, anyway?

And Gwathagor

Aye, aye, everybody. Just checking in! Yes, I was playing in this game. Between signing up and the start-date, Cailín got a new job which really impacted on her free time (i.e. - she had none). Rather than let her act all silly and try to get lynched early (or not to participate) I gallantly offered to play for her.

Though she still managed to summon the effort to tell me what to type.

It's weird playing under another name, though. Somehow it wasn't as comfortable, and I couldn't feel as though I was truly among the living -- ach! some kind of metaphysical conundrum anyway. Also, as Cailín speculated, her suspicious location (lurking in the shadows) is a real worrier.

I've given some rep but in a game this size... it's difficult to properly salute everyone. So I'll just say well done to all, for a cracking game.

Wow, that's bringing back a lot of memories... Ack, I'm aging myself! *not too old, not too old yet*
Though, I wonder how much of an actual difference there is between scruffy Seattle grungian and the Portland variety.

For the record, my Nerwen sim knew you were a wolf at first and had a high aspiration for you to be cured (though, she did have another high aspiration to become a werewolf). She always starts with the weather, then with sunny days, and eventually starts to talk about the moon... Though, when you started with the same plan she kept plugging her ears and ignoring you.

Though, I think Agan did an amazing job with her neighborhood, especially taking on pretty much the whole lot of us with interactions.

I'm entirely too empathetic of a sim god to kill off/create mortal enemies of my sims. I blame it on too much time being devoted in creating the right homes for everyone. Phantom's castle is still in the works, and Roa has a winchester rifle mansion so far.

Before I forget, some rep is in high order.

Well...the Portland grunge doesn't riot...

Actually, the Portland grunge all came down from Seattle, so there isn't any real difference between the two varieties.

A few people requested that I put up my DW neighbourhood as well, so I finally did. I played them for awhile in their own homes, then gave them all makeovers and placed them in one lot for the actual game.

One

Two

Three

Four

Enjoy!

Well then, I'm sorry for the invasion.

Brinn, how did you manage to kill me during the day time by a fallen satellite?

Also, your phantom shots were awesome.

Also, there are apparently a lot of ways to die in Sims 2, huh. o_o

Yeah, if you cheat, there are a lot of ways to die in Sims2. A sim can die of fright, hunger, disease, electrocution, flies, lightening, old age, drowning, fire, and satellite. Oh, and you can also get eaten by the cow plant as I learned as I accidentally got Cailin killed during pre-game.

I knew it...
No worries though, I use one of the downloadable tombstones to stir up my neighbourhoods. I really enjoy how twisted the cow plant can be, after having one sim eaten and then his spouse milked the plant.
I haven't gone as far as others with their WW sims, but I've been tempted to bring some of the Night kills back as zombies, just to go after the werewolves and comic relief.
