How to Survive the WWinter
a short game by @PippyPony

Friends, it is COLD outside. The dead of winter is upon us. Sunlight and WW games are in short supply. As a lifelong hater-of-winter, I'd like to do what I can to help you through these trying times. Just don't ask me to clean the ice off your car. I can't do that for you, because I'm too short and would rather stay inside underneath 5+ blankets.

What I can offer is a WW game and some winter survival tips.
First tip: if you're going outside in the snow, dress appropriately. Instagram celeb Gary the Cat and Pippy's real life friend from school are here to demonstrate what I mean. (NO QUOTES please...I didn't bother to get permission :whistle:)

*poof*
^those are shorts, btw.

Day cycles will be 1.5 hours long - EXCEPT FOR D1 WHICH WILL BE 2 HOURS - Night cycles will be 30 minutes long

RULES

1. No screenshots
2. I'm not your mom; be responsible.
3. If you ask for a sub or don't show up, I will kill you.

Players should be advised that in the past my speed games have contained mechanisms not commonly seen in speed games (resurrections, conversions, double kills, etc.). Similar mechanisms may or may not be present in this game. If applicable, write ups may provide small clues but do not rely on them as a replacement for active puzzle solving.
...And if this tanks, then don't worry, I have a wacky set up from MU I'd like to try out later.

Roster
1. @Animal Midwife
2. @alissa14
3. @mizchiefmanaged

Some role PMs are still being sent out for lulz. If you attempt to use PM timing to determine roles, I will kill you.
If you have not been told otherwise, you are a vanillager.

D1 begins now.
Lynch close will be at 12:30pm EST.
N1 close will follow at 1pm EST

I had intended to spend my whole day working on edits for a paper...but I couldn't sleep last night and ended up finishing everything I needed to and already sent it to my professor...so now here I am with nothing to do (okay, I have 100 things to do but nothing with sufficient urgency to motivate me to do it).

So kind of Pippy to start a speed game when I needed it most lol

I love love love cleaning snow/ice off the car! It's so therapeutic for me for some reason, warming up a frigid engine, turning on the heat/defrosters, then going back outside to sweep and scrape, watching the ice slowly melt away over time. :love: (Unless I'm in a hurry/late, which is often.) Haven't seen snow or ice or "winter" in years though since moving farther south. :thumbdown:

(Which is also why I'm playing this game, because I want legit winter. And I love emergency preparedness themes!)

We're having a cold snap or something here- woke up to it being 47 this morning when it was 70+ yesterday. I might freeze to death!

I was in FL a couple weeks ago and going back to the cold made me never want to go back to the cold ever again. Twas 75 degrees in January. I’m doing it wrong.

It's pretty glorious. And I moved up more northward in FL for school, so this is even cold for me- I think I saw frost in my hometown maybe once or twice?

The only downside to FL living (besides, you know, a lot of things) is that I have the absolute cutest peacoat but I can only wear it for like two weeks a year. So many fashion choices I can't do when it's coldish in the morning but heats up to 75 by the afternoon :(

Same here. Today is 21! It’s freezing!! On Saturday, there was a huge snowstorm and I actually had to drive into work. At least we closed early :p

Go on, just admit you’re jealous that I was walking around in a tank top and shorts yesterday :p
*sigh* yes... My bf would probably be the most jealous though. He hates Michigan. I love this state but man, sometimes winters suck. I’d be even more jealous if you told me you lived closer to Disney.

What if wolfes can only talk trash about cold weather this game ?

Disney is literally the only good thing about FL.

I doubt it... why would there be a post restriction on wolves? I can’t imagine there are more than 3 of them. It’s an 11 person game

My hometown is actually about a 45 minute drive from Disney! We used to have passes when my brother and I were kids because it was pretty easy to just go if we wanted to. Now they changed the fast pass thing so it’s a lot worse for FL residents to just go on a whim. I’m going to Hollywood studios with my boyfriend the weekend of Valentine’s Day, because waiting in hellishly long lines is somehow romantic lol

Three is pretty on the high side. Two is more standard, especially for a speed game.
Thank you

I’m excited because I’ve never done wheel throwing before! If all goes well, I plan on signing up for a 6 week summer course as well!
