Setting

Hidden inside the Turalian mountains far away, are a complex network of caverns and mines. A mechanical menagerie, numerous taverns, jewelers and blacksmiths fill this underground haven. A tribe of dwarves reside here, most of them miners who work hard (and drink hard) out of sight from the land dwellers above. They are ruled by Queen Auraya, a noble dwarf (with distinctly pointy ears) who has fought to keep intruders out and protect their precious resources. 

For over a hundred years, this tribe has survived peacefully but alas things cannot always remain so. The stocks of silversteel have been slowly depleting, dwarves have begun to go missing and a mystery is afoot. Who could be responsible?

[Game Mechanics

All players will be split into 2 groups - dwarves and humans. Every other night (48 hours) all players must vote (by mailing Auraya) for who they want to be killed as a suspect human. Whoever gets the majority of votes (published in the "kill post") will be killed off, ties will result in no kill that night. Kills will reveal the true identity of the player. The winner is the side who manages to kill all members of the opposite team. 

Essentially, it's a game of strategy. Humans will know who each other are, dwarves will only know who they are. Humans will try to deceive the dwarves and the dwarves will try to spot the humans through their voting patterns and any inconsistencies in their posts. 

Some players (known as specials) will have a special action they can perform either once per game or once per voting round. This will be made clear if you are chosen and only the special player will know what their special action is. 

There will be 6 houses and 10 rooms in the tavern assigned on a first come, first served basis. Some of these have special properties, some don't - pick a number.

I will attempt to have all "kill posts" done by 11pm - please be patient if it is a little longer. 

Rules

#1: Queen Auraya cannot be killed or voted for (sorry folks!)
#2: You are out of the game when killed in a post made by Auraya and ONLY Auraya. No killing each other. 
#3: Anyone can sign up. By signing up you agree to post in character as a dwarf. If you wish to post a small aside out of character, please make this clear by using []. 
#4: You must not admit if you are a special or a human - not even in game or on skype etc or if people guess. 
#5: Votes must be made by 9pm server time. 
#6: You MUST vote each round or vote for no kill. Votes cannot be changed once made.
#7: Discuss voting on the forum, not outside of it. It's a forum game! (Humans can use PMs, obviously)

Available specials will be posted shortly. These will be assigned randomly, you cannot choose them. If you wish to join, please post your character description below! Remember to pick a house/room. Good luck everyone! I hope we have a good round ^_^

You might as well call this mafia-esque. I was actually planning on creating a mafia game myself.

I'll have House number 2 please :) I'll write a bio shortly.

Edit for bio:

Hali's family have lived in the expansive caverns below the Turalian Mountains for several generations now passing down their skills as blacksmiths through the ages.

The life if a dwarven blacksmith is hard work and long hours and when he isn't working like most dwarves he can be found in the tavern, nothing quite matches up to a large glass of dwarven ale after a hard day of work.

For a pessimist i'm pretty optimistic

Hamlick is a dorf who has lived in a rather cramped tunnel network, in the Qaro region, with his family. He followed his father, Hamlock, in his dangerous trade of Iceheart mining. Now Hamlick has struck out to make his own fortune in the large dwarf settlement in the Turalian mountain region.

Hamlick is average height for a dwarf with a long beard that he keeps tucked into his belt (Tip from his father; free moving beards and lit candles do not mix). He is an outgoing dwarf who enjoys the traditional sport of the dorfs. "How fast can you drink that mug of ale"  *He was regional champion in Quaro and hopes to set a record in Turalian.

The dwarf Thes has always had a special knack for finding the best mushrooms, spearing the tastiest cave fish, and even being able snatch bats out of the air. Some of her fellow dwarfs back in dwarf school used to laugh and call her names. Because she was more interested in learning how the ecosystems of the caves functioned, than in how to pull the shining materials from the caves. She has been known to protest and sulk when a mining operation has taken out a particularly special or rare species of cave cricket. Though her fellow dwarfs put up with her because she has been a relatively good provider of mushrooms, and fresh meat.

The dwarf Forraid, wife of Harbold the Hardy, has traveled the length and breadth of the land seeking the best prices for a wide variety of rare and precious gems and metals. Her husband and sons are whitesmiths of great renown, fashioning objects both artistic and practical. Her journeying has brought her to Room 7 of the Tavern. She was told that only in Auraya's underground realm below Turalia could she find the rare earth reagent needed to anneal a metal hitherto unknown. Her eyes are bright blue and miss nothing. Tiny silver bells adorn her red hair and muttonchops, which she keeps braided underneath her chin and tucked into her ample bodice. The rumor among the serving wenches is that the tiny key hidden in her braid is a spare that she had made to fit the chastity belt her husband crafted to insure her faithfulness. It is said that she can smell a vein of silversteel in the dark, she can hear the taint of a lie on the most practiced lips, and her touch with an axe is death to foes.

Duín Springheel is so named because of his jaunty approach to life among the somber miners that make up his race. Always welcome at balls, mine openings, and other social events, this dwarf is a skilled musician, especially in the popular "rock" and "metal" music genres of today's dwarven culture. He makes a living off his musical talents, although it has been noted that he has a way of winning large sums of money in betting and card games, and he has an eye for the best price in a market. His wanderings have brought him to Queen Aurya's somber mine, which he hears could use some cheering up.... He currently resides in room 10 in the tavern.
