Nightingale’s Action Processing Guidelines

Night actions will be generally in the following order.
:japanese_castle: Roleblocks / Redirects / Manipulative
:japanese_castle: Protective
:japanese_castle: Miscellanea
:japanese_castle: Killing / Attacking
:japanese_castle: Investigative
Abilities on the same step will generally attempt to be processed at the same time.
Passives apply immediately after the ability that triggers them.

Roleblocks, by default, disable all ongoing effects of a players’ abilities for the duration of the roleblock (until the end of the phase, unless otherwise stated).
Unless otherwise stated, dead players may be targeted by abilities.
Players can multitask indefinitely.

Earth to Earth

All players start with at least one ability.
There are exactly 17 Imperialists at the start of the game.
All others are Ancient Spirits.
You may claim flavor in the topmost section of your rolecard freely, as long as you do not copy-paste images or large blocks of text.
Flavor is alignment indicative. Players that would detriment from this have safeclaims.
Flavor claiming and discussion is encouraged.
Familiarity with the previous chapter will provide an advantage for solving bastard elements, but is not necessary to participate.

SANE players will fail when performing killing actions.
FRAGILE players will fail when performing killing actions.
INSANE players do not receive feedback.
Abilities may change depending on their user’s Sanity.
They will be informed when this happens.

Win conditions (the bottommost section) will not be revealed on flips.
Dead interaction exists, but is not pivotal.

You post more than 200 times per day at your own risk.
You may claim your role name or abilities at your own risk.

All below rules may be broken.
I do not wish to make this game unfair.
All rulebleaks of the rules below will be clued in by the flavor of this game and the previous.
The lower a rule is, the less trustworthy it should be regarded as.

Illusions to Illusions

All Imperialists win if and only if all Ancient Spirits are banished.
Players have no abilities while dead, unless explicitly stated. Any ongoing effects due to a players’ abilities will cease when they die.
Roleblocked gated abilities will not be refunded.
No unassigned abilities exist.

All players know their win conditions.
Your rolecard will not overtly lie to you.
Win conditions cannot change after the game has begun.
Players will flip correctly.
Investigative results will return correctly.

The Butterflies’ Coffin

Mikhail di Neiro

Empire Usurper

The elder of the two di Neiro siblings and the heir apparent to the Crown States after Lucifer’s passing the previous year. A former Lion, she graduated out of the university the previous year. This year, she is in the Crown States, managing state affairs for her ailing father.

Ability: Guard of the Futures
Mikhail can, by concentrating, scry on a person to observe the world through their senses, without any distance limits. In order to do this, she needs to have physically touched them before. She can only do this for one person at a time, and she has no perception of her own senses while doing this. The observed person can feel something foreign in their mind.

Female — March 5 — 18 — FRAGILE

On Borrowed TimePassive
You know there is a Prince, an Empire player with a fullcop ability.
This ability will be redacted from their flip.
An informed minority faction also knows their role exists, and has a gated factional ability.
If they target the Prince with this ability, something very bad will happen.

Never Make Me Cry AgainNight, 2-Shot
Choose a player.
If they are the Prince, their status as the Prince will be removed.

You are aligned with the Empire.
You win when all Ancient Spirits are banished.

Dalya set her hand on the table and gestured to a chair: Athena reluctantly took a seat and examined her surroundings. Lions banners lined the walls and the furniture was frillier and more ostentatious than the unstated teak of the Eagles’ lounge; a solid gold ingot on a dresser drew her eye. She sighed to herself.

“Something wrong?”

She jumped to see Adrian sitting a few chairs away. “Uh… no, not really. Thanks, though.” She fidgeted with the letter. She was so preoccupied with the contents that she hadn’t notice her enter.

“I’m here because Dalya wanted me… but I wouldn’t want to inconvenience you two.”

She relaxed. “No, it’s fine.” She watched Adrian scan the room for a minute and pull a set of needles and a ball of yarn. Comforted, she unbagged her notebook and doodled schematics for her newest project.

Dalya set her cup of coffee down with a clink, then slapped a folder of papers on the table. “I called each of you here for a specific reason.” Athena and Adrian shared confused glances. Dalya abruptly continued. “Athena, can you show me your letter again?”

She obliged, handing the envelope gingerly to Dalya. Dalya removed the letter from inside and showed it to Adrian. “Adrian, do you know this magic circle?”

Adrian promptly responded: “Second pentacle of Saturn. It’s used to repress the pride of spirits.”

Dalya nodded. “The existence of this pentacle sheds an interesting light on our killer’s motives. They wanted to present an image to the world that they are not one to be trifled with… a stark image of the repression of pride would be consistent with that, correct?”

Adrian stammered as Dalya took a sip of coffee and continued without skipping a beat. “However, this circle is crucial for one other reason: it means we’re dealing with a serial killer.”

Athena let out an audible gasp. The thought of being in this school with a psychopath terrified her. “Umm… a-are you sure about that?”

Dalya nodded without mercy. “There have been two murders so far whose circumstances and crime scenes feature this magic circle prominently. Both of these cases occurred with students on this campus. The details of these cases were furthermore secreted from the general public due to the high profile of the victims. The letter and this murder threat are no coincidence: the Flower Dragon has returned. This is why I secured the dining hall so meticulously with you: we’re dealing with an experienced perp. They’re taunting us.”

Athena gulped. “But w-why me?”

“One of the two victims was Lucifer di Neiro, the heir apparent to the Crown States. Though he was murdered at the imperial palace, this exact circle was found painted in blood in his dorm room. The other one was the eldest daughter of the Crown States Underground with ties to organized crime—”

The world began to swirl around Athena, spots of black dancing around her vision.

“—Pallas di Angelari.”

Day 1 will begin momentarily.

It will last 48 hours and end 2023-07-11T20:00:00Z.

Submit all day actions by 2023-07-11T18:00:00Z.
