The No-No Name is the title of the first game to be hosted by Natalie_Crescent. It was scheduled as the sort of conclusion game for the Phase 3 Games, and took place during the 24th of June through the 2nd of July, totaling nine real life days and four game days. It was a Star Wars/Professor Layton crossover game.
Teasers one through five of five have been revealed. All teasers can be viewed in the teaser gallery below.
A strange, large-scale series of disappearances catches the attention of an old acquaintence of the professor's, who sends Layton a letter asking--or rather, begging--for assistance. Who or what can possibly be causing it?
A time-space continuum fluctuation puts the Reckless to a standstill and sucks Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Captain Rex and others to another world. What in the name of the Force could've created such a disturbance? And are these things connected?

Loyal Gentleman (or Lady)Edit
Alternative title for a Loyal Helper in the Triple N. Description: You have no night role. Your objective is to discuss with others and try to deduce for yourself who you think the Desperados are. You make your final decision with voting at the end of each day. But choose wisely; there is always a chance that those you suspect are fellow Loyalists.
This game's Loyal Gentlemen (and Ladies): Star, Squiggy, Nam, Jodo, Newan, Scruffy
Loyal 'Inspector of the Yard'Edit
Alternative title for a Loyal Inspector in the Triple N. Description: Your night role is simple enough; select who you'd like to investigate, and then do so. You will not know the exact role of a scrutinized individual, but you will know to which side they have defected. This role has a weakness, however. The Crimelord has the power to invert the role of the chosen party, (making a Gentleman appear as a Desperado, and vice versa), thus rendering the results of an inspection into falsehood.
This game's Loyal 'Inspector of the Yard': Darkside
Alternative title for a Loyal Protector in the Triple N. Description: Your night role: choose one person to Rescue from being taken away every night. However, be vigilant; you may not be protecting who you ought to be.
This game's White Knight: Maverick
Alternative title for the Stalker in the Triple N. Description: Your night role: you are to keep close tabs on any person on any given night to see if the person you are following has a night role, and who they have used it on, if they had one.
This game's Dogger: Zinga
Alternative title for the Scum Henchmen in the Triple N. Description: You are a simple criminal. Your objective is to discuss daily with the others and give the impression you are a Gentleman, and convince those Gentlemen to vote off their comrades, thus outnumbering them. You make your final decision with voting at the end of each day. You also discuss on the Scum Base.
This games Desperados: Malgus, Bane, Potato
New role, invented by Natalie Crescent for the Triple N, in order to replace the Murdurer role. Description: Like all the Desperados, your objective is to win by outnumbering the Gentlemen. Your night role is to choose someone you'd like to whisk away from the commotion and discussion. You then promptly tie them to a chair with chains, solder the chains to the chair so they can't escape, gag them, and then lock them up in a closet in an abandoned building somewhere. (They don't die, so they can return in the Day/Night occurances and in future games.)
This game's Shanghaier: Pinda
Alternative title for the Scum Leader in the Triple N. Description: As the leader, the objective you've set for your team is to win by outnumbering the Gentlemen. Your night role: invert up to two people's affiliations, making Desperados appear as Gentlemen and in the reverse. Also, because of your role and position, if the Inspector of the Yard investigates you, you will not come up as a Desperado.
This game's Crimelord: Spider
First game appearance. Description: You have the power to convert any loyalist to a scum, but under certain conditions; in order for you to be able to recruit anyone, first, either the possessor of the role or the Shanghaier must be voted off, and you also are only able to use it once. This can give you a slight edge when used correctly.
This game's Recruiter: Ivar
Description: Oh no! Something or other has happened to temporarily wipe your memory! If you guess your original role correctly, you will regain your memories and be able to properly fight for your team. However, whatever role you guess, you will become, so be cautious.

The No No Name RulebookEdit
In addition to the updated rulebook on the Forums , this game will have its own set of rules.
RULE #1: You may not swear at someone, in either OOC or IC, unless you are using SW swear words in IC. (The forums censor swear words. Potato Rules!) I honestly don't mind if you cuss someone out IC in Huttese. :P And since this is a game, there is no need for personal hostility.
RULE #2: You may not impersonate and/or troll. Although it's probably unlikely you will get away with it anyway on the forums, and you will most likely get banned by a mod or the admin, so it's best not to.
RULE #3: You may not SPAM! This means posting several OOC comments in a row. If you have something OOC to say, include it with your IC comment, or just put it in the discussion thread.
- ALSO: You do not need to post OOC comments for the host to read in the day threads, especially if it's important, when you can utilize the PM system.
ADDITIONAL NOTICE: DO NOT PLAN ON PLAYING THIS GAME IF YOU DON'T PLAN ON READING THE STORYLINE, AND ROLEPLAYING ACCORDINGLY, IF YOU WILL HAVE OTHER THINGS GOING ON WHEN IT IS HOSTED, OR IF YOU WILL FORGET ABOUT THIS GAME. DOING SO WILL CAUSE PROBLEMS FOR EVERYONE, SO DON'T DO IT!
I REPEAT! DO NOT DO IT!
Violation of the rules in the original rulebook will result in a reminder and a warning.
Thank you for playing by the rules!
