“I want to play a game…”
WordHunter is a fun game that challenges your linguistic and vocabulary skills. Your task is to find the best words that fit the given criteria.


The game consists of a variable amount of rounds in which the hosting bot, WordMaster, will post different kinds of challenges, for instance: who can find a sub-anagram from a given set of letters. The time each round takes can be configured.
Generally, the person who finds the best word (e.g. the word that is worth the highest score in Scrabble plus its length) which fits the requirements within the given time will win the round. At the end of every round, the winner is announced.

After the game ended, a game winner will be broadcasted.

The game can be played with any amount of players, yet 3 players or more are suggested.


There are only two commands: To start and to stop the game. WordMaster will autostart the next round automatically 10 seconds after the timer for the previous round ran out.

Use *start to start a 15-round game with 50 seconds of time per round. If you want to modify either the number of rounds or the amount of time per round, you can use the additional parameters n=# t=# (for example: *start n=5 t=60).
n is the number of rounds. Specifying n=0 will start an infinitely running game.
t is the time per round. A time shorter than 30 seconds is not advised.

Use *stop to interrupt a running game.

If you have a channel on CrushAndRun, there are multiple ways to make it so that only certain people can get in. If the channel is registered, your toolkit gets even better. For unregistered channels, you can set it to +i, which is invite only, by doing /mode #channel +i. You can also use a key to prevent others from joining as well by setting +k, /mode #channel +k password. If you are using invite mode, you can also set invites for hosts, just the same way you’d set a ban or an exempt, like so: /mode #channel +I nick!user@host.

Now, that’s all great to use, but with a registered channel, services will help keep out unwanted users. There are a couple routes to go with this. You can set an mode lock so that ChanServ will keep +i set, /msg ChanServ set #channel mlock +i. Make sure you add whatever other modes you want kept to that mlock. You can also use invites on NickServ accounts by using the R: extban, /mode #channel +I R:account. To get someone’s account name, do /msg NickServ info nickname. This allows people to join as long as they are identified to their account and their account has an invite, regardless of hostmask. This makes less work for ops.

Also, if your channel ever goes inactive, ChanServ will make sure to kick out anyone who shouldn’t belong in the event of them joining by coming in and setting +i. You can also give people access to invite themselves using ChanServ by setting the +i flag on their account or hostmask. This also allows them to get the key if +k is set. /msg ChanServ flags #channel +i. This is optional, but recommended if you want to allow them to let themselves back in. Otherwise they will have to wait for another op to set their invite.

The other method of making a whitelist is probably better for an op based channel. The restricted setting on ChanServ will keep out anyone who doesn’t have a flag in the channel. And by keeping out, I mean keeping out. It will remove any exempt or invite on the nickname, set a ban, and also kick the user immediately when they join. You don’t need to use this with +i or +k, but if you want to, you can. To set restricted, do: /msg ChanServ set #channel restricted on. Also to see your flags set, do: /msg ChanServ flags #channel. You might also want to give a user access to unbanning themselves and inviting themselves. The flag for unban is +r. /msg ChanServ flags #channel +r. Keep in mind that setting +r will also allow them to kick, ban, and unban other users as well, so this is not recommended for non-ops.

Personally, I prefer the restricted option if you are just wanting to make a really private channel. If you just want it to be whitelisted, invite would be the better route. If you need more help, visit our help channel, #crushandrun.

This guide is mainly for a reminder and for those familiar with Eggdrop already. There were some changes in 1.8 as far as linking goes. Mostly due to the addition of SSL and IPv6.

First off, decide which bot will be the “hub” and go to that directory. You will need to make an eggdrop.key and an eggdrop.crt file. To make a self-signed key, run this command:

openssl genrsa -out eggdrop.key 2048

To make the certificate to go with it, run this command:

openssl req -new -key eggdrop.key -x509 -out eggdrop.crt -days 365

Next, open up your config file with your favorite editor and uncomment set ssl-privatekey and set ssl-certificate. Also make note of your listen ports, as you will need those for linking. If they aren’t ssl ports, make them ssl ports by adding a + in front. SSL is required for linking.

For the commands below, replace hub/leafname with your hub/leaf bot’s name. Same goes for hub/leafport and hub/leafhost.

Start up the bots, and on the hub bot, do:

.+bot leafname leafhost +leafport
.chgpass leafname makeupsomepassword

The reason for the .chgpass line is to make sure the bots don’t complain about a wrong password from the start.

On the leaf bot, do:

+bot hubname hubhost +hubport
.chgpass hubname usethesamepasswordasabove

You can use another password if you want to, up to you.

On the hub bot, try linking to the leafbot:

.link leafname

If this works, then you can go ahead and add the flags. +h is for hub. +s is for aggressive sharing. +p is for passive sharing. +l is for leaf. On the hub:

.botattr leafname +lp

And on the leaf:

.botattr hubname +hs

And they will now share the user lists and link up automatically.


These commands may be done in the channel when preceeded by +$command, or done in a query with Werewolf by /msg Werewolf command.

About the Game


Players are divided up among 4 roles, chosen at random by the bot, and depending on how many players are in the round.

  • Werewolves – During the day, you must hide your identity, and you can participate in the vote with the rest of the villagers. During the night, you can take part in another private vote with the rest of the Werewolves on whom to kill before morning. (There will always be at least one werewolf.)
  • Villagers – During the day, you can discuss with the other villagers about who the Werewolf might be. Try not to make yourself look like a wolf. Later on, a vote will take place and you and the other villagers can decide on who to kill. (There will always be at least one villager.)
  • Shooters – The same as a Villager with one exception; you can shoot other villagers every morning. If you shoot at a villager, they will not be able to vote. If you shoot at a Seer or a Werewolf, they will die. A shooter has a 33% chance to hit their target. The shooter can also choose to votekill nobody during the vote. (There must be at least 6 players to play with a shooter.)
  • Seer – The same as a Villager with one exception; you can reveal another player’s identity every morning. You will be the prime target of the werewolves, but a great ally to the villagers. (There will always only be one seer.)

As you may have noticed, we have an IRC network. To get on, you will need a client that is able to connect. If you don’t want to use a client, you can use our webchat at http://webchat.crushandrun.net/ or SSL at https://webchat.crushandrun.net/.

For those who want to use a client, there is a list at Wikipedia. In this example, we will use Hexchat.

If the window isn’t already open when you opened the client, go to Hexchat > Network List.... You can change any of the fields before moving on. Next, hit Add, and next to it, a box will show up saying New Network. You can type in CrushAndRun here, and then click Edit.... Replace newserver/6667 with irc.crushandrun.net/6667. You can replace 6667 with any port between 6660 and 6669 for plaintext connections. SSL is 6690-6699.

If you’d like to add in any channels to join, hit the Autojoin Channels tab. You may want to add #crushandrun and #cornerpocket to the list. #crushandrun is our network help channel, and #cornerpocket is our social channel.

Next, check Connect to this server automatically., and if you’re using SSL, check Use SSL for all servers on this network. and Accept invalid SSL certificates.. It is invalid due to being self signed right now.

If you don’t want to use the user information on the Network List window, you can uncheck Use global user information. If you setup a NickServ account, you can change the login method to /NICKSERV + password and input your NickServ password in the box below. It is recommended to leave the character set on UTF-8.

Once you are done, hit Close, and then Connect, or if you’d like to connect with a new tab, hit Close and then hit Ctrl+t and type /server CrushAndRun and you should connect.

Afterwards, you can /join #channel, replacing #channel with a channel of your choice. Having a NickServ account is not required in order to chat on existing channels, however, if you plan on making a new channel, you will need to register. To register, do /nickserv register [password] [email], replacing password with your password and email with your email. See /nickserv help register and /nickserv help identify for more information.

This network also provides full hostmask cloaking to anyone connected. If you are registered, you can also request a custom vhost by entering: /hostserv request vhost.here. For help, do /hostserv help request.
