Goodness gracious. We're all the way to the 40th game. Not only that, it looks like I'm running shop, yet again. Since this is the XL game, I couldn't help taking inspiration from the Roman Numerals and it was decided that this game would be fast food themed.

So strap on your bib and loosen that belt cause we're in for a ride…

Introducing:


Townston is going through the latest health craze, where celery munching is all the rave. Broccoli farming is a booming industry and tofu has never been more popular. For sure, the town has never been fitter.

But is it safer?

With the fast food industry almost out of business, the heads of the chains have descended to life of crime; backed by the infamous “Ron the Don”. Their ultimate goal is to get rid of all the biggest healthy lifestyle supporters, so that they can start selling their filth -sound of a gun cocking-…eh… I mean… their wonderful and delicious convenience food to their valued customers of Townston.

This game will use standard rules, using my interpretations on them. The mafia however will receive a drastic modification:

Important to read!
This game will feature a unique style of a mafia. Instead of the classic close knit group, the mafia will be a loose coalition of criminals. Under normal circumstances they'd be rivals but have for now set aside their differences, while they're working at their common goal. They do not know the identity of each other. Also, while one of them is technically the Don, each one has a special skill, instead of the classic “pile-o-powers” that's bestowed on the Godfather alone.

The game takes turns, alternating between day cycles and nights. Each cycle takes 24 hours and will end when the GM posts his narration. Each narration is scheduled to be released around 12 AM GMT or 6 PM US Central. Since players can hail from all over the world, it is important that they know which time zone they are in so that they can know when to expect the next narration. Here's a GMT conversion table.


"Here's how it works. Figure out where in the world you live and locate that place on the map. Follow the line you're living in down to the bottom of the map and locate a number down there. Use that number to change the time. If you live in a +6 zone then the narration will be up at 6 AM. If you live in a +12 then it will be up at 12 PM (Noon).

For those living in America, here's a handy time table to show you at what time you can expect the narrations.


Obligatory standard list of roles:

With 20 players, the number of starting roles will be:

PRO TOWN:
1 Diet Planner (Detective)
1 Sportacus (Vigilante)
2 Fitness trainers (Paramedic)
1 Recovering Sugar Junky (Paranoid)
1 Vegan (Veteran)
9 Vegetarians (Townies)

Criminals:
1 Ron AKA “the Don”
1 Sanders AKA “The Colonel”
1 Caesar AKA “Little Caesar”
1 Gwendolen AKA “Wendy”
1 B.K. AKA “The King”

PETA Employees.
PETA has recognized the town as an ideal location to set up shop and has moved into the town center, effectively taking things over. Some of the villagers are now working for it, thus receiving additional powers. These players are selected via election or random selection.

President of PETA
The biggest health nut is selected to become the President of PETA, during the start of the game, due to his avid hate for the fast food industry. As a result, he's given a wide range of powers.
Backed by PETA: Increased vote count of 2 during lynching.
We have to think of the animals!: The President of PETA can declare 2 double lynches anytime during the game When double lynches are in effect each player gets two votes on two different people.(The president of PETA must notify the GM during the night cycle or early on in the day day cycle if he wants to do a double lynch, so voting can be arranged accordingly).
We've got aides!: You heard right! PETA employees got aides. They're supper skinny and healthy as a result. They wish they could give you aides themselves but they're hogging all the aides in townston for themselves and you can't have any. As long as the PETA employees have aides, they can't be killed during the night.
Examples must be made!: The President of PETA has the option of insta-lynching one player by the end of Day 1, once he's won the election. No voting takes place. Whoever the President picks gets lynched. Take heed though if you plan to use this ability since no clues have been given that could help point you at a criminal at that time.


The only person in PETA, with common sense.
As the only person in PETA with any hint of common sense, you realize that killing people just because they might have hurt a puppy is not what PETA should stand for. Being the runner up of the election, you get the power to pardon up to two individual, during the course of the game. Pardoning both suspects during a double lynch will use up both powers but it's also possible to pardon one suspect while lynching the other. He will have to notify the GM within one hour of lynch vote results before the lynch is actually posted. The only person in PETA, with a common sense is unable to pardon during the insta-lynch. Since he's a PETA employee, he will also have aides and is thus safe during the nights.


Aid
Two random vegetarians will serves as personal trainers and dietitians for the town leadership, once the President of PETA has been elected. As long as the aides are alive, the PETA employees cannot be killed or targeted by any special power since the aides keep them safe.


Health Nuts!
Lynch a bad guy during the day. Survive the night. Rinse and repeat. Players who are Health Nuts are in business to save Townston from obesity and diabetes.


Sportacus
After watching one too many Lazy Town episodes, this interesting individual has decided to fight unhealthy lifestyles… quite literally. Each night he can target and kill someone who he believes to be the equivalent of Robby Rotten. Be careful who you chose though because you just might be taking out a friendly.


Personal trainer
These guys hate seeing someone unfit so they're likely to pick you off the streets and give you a good workout.
Come along stringbeans, we're pulling an all nighter!: The personal trainer can pick someone at night and trap them in their gym. They're doomed to work those weights ‘til dawn but at least they’ll be safe from attacks in the meantime. (A person is considered protected if he's targeted by the Personal trainer)
Note: A protected person can still perform night actions. I will rule that they managed to perform their action before they got carried away by the trainer.


Diet Planner
Nobody is as nosy and controlling as the Diet Planer. Chasing the villagers around and checking into their grocery bags, nobody will get away with sneaking a bite of a treat, while he's around. As a result, The Diet Planner might occasionally discover the identity of a member of the Fast food mafia.
Who said you could eat that!?: The diet planer will sometimes sneak into peoples houses and look in their fridge, to see if they're eating right. Should he discover fast food during one of these visits, he'll realize that the owner is a Fast food mafia member. This power can only be used twice.
Why, I believe I recognize that footprint!: Since the Diet Planer measures the weight of everyone in townston, he's has a complete record of how heavy each of the villagers are. Since he saw in CSI once that you can figure out how heavy someone was by the dept of their footprint, he can look up to see if a specific player was behind a specific attack. (The Diet Planer can ask the GM if a specific player committed a specific crime and get a yes/no answer).
There's grease on these ballots!: Looking up the vote results, the Diet Planer can figure out if any Fast Food Mobsters participated in the election. Should he choose to use this power he'll be able to find out if any mobsters voted for a specific player (mayoral or lynch) and also how many mobsters voted for him.


Recovering Sugar Junky
In the past you lived off the white stuff. You were binging 3 six packs of soda a day and everything you ate was glazed. Had Jesus been more like you, our communion vine equivalent would have been Corn Syrup. However, with all these recent sugar taxes and banns, sugar is almost nonexistant in Townston. As a result, you're suffering. You're suffering allot. You spend the nights sitting in the corner banging your head against the wall. Anyone who dares to walk into your house is a dead man, cause the slightest upsetting thing can make that fragile twig that's your sanity snap like a… twig.


Vegan
You're the epiphany of dietary health. Nobody is as healthy as you.
My body is a temple: Staying away from such horrible disgusting things as cow gland excrements and bee droppings has really payed off. Not only can you rub your health into the noses of others, you also got got an extra night life. Two attacks must be made on him before he dies.


Vegetarian
You're the average lettuce munching vegetarian. However, you still eat dairy so so you're not as perfect as the vegan. You get to vote during the days, like everyone else. You represent the majority of the town so numbers are on your side. If you can work together you can defeat the evil fast food industry.


THE FAST FOOD MAFIA!

This loose coalition of Fast food owners have banded together in an uneasy union. They trust each other as far as they can throw them so all conversations are done via courier service (GM handles communication between The Don and his teammates). As a result, the mobsters do not know the identity of each other so they might occasionally run into each other on the streets at night. When that happens they will not kill each other (unless specified otherwise).


Ron

AKA “the Don”

The organizer of this alliance; Ron the Don is the mastermind criminal of Townston. Nothing can be proven on him since he knows how to cover his tracks.
Mastermind Criminal: Ron has the Behind the curtains power of the classic Godfather which he never looses. That means that no dirt can ever be dug up about him and he can't be killed during the nights at all.
Send them a happy meal: Serving under Ron is his notorious henchman, Grimace, who goes on errands for him. Every night he can execute on behalf of his master. Should Grimace walk into the house of the Recovering Sugar Junky, he will die and Ron will lose this power. Grimace will not kill the other mafia members that he accidentally targets but will instead report their identity back to his master.
Courier service: Birdie; Ron's second henchman delivers messages back and forth from his master and the other mobsters. This power is activated by PQing the GM. If the mobsters receive a message from the Don, they can reply back, should they chose to do so (Identities can not be transferred this way, since the mobsters don't want to reveal their identities to each other).


Sanders

AKA “The Colonel”

The Colonel is a twisted sort. Under the cool and calm facade that he portrays, lies a sick, sick man, with strong Southern ties.
What are ya? Some sort of Chicken?: The Colonel thinks that anyone who can't handle eating a little bit of meat is a dam sissy and a coward so every night he can go out and accuse someone of being a yellow bellied chicken. Under normal circumstances the person who gets accused of such will either feel ashamed or angered by the verbal attack but in this case it's a more serious matter. The sheer idea that this person might be poultry sends the Colonel on a mad hunger rage, prompting in his attempt to eat him. Terrified of this madman, the person will run for his life and attempt to ditch town for the nigh but he'll have a 50/50 chance of actually escaping. Should he escape he will go on a hiding and disappear for the next day. During this time, he's immune to any other attacks (since no one can find him) but he's also unable to use his powers (including the ability to vote), during that time. Should the Colonel target another mobster, he will back down and leave him alone but he will now be aware of his identity.


Caesar

AKA “Little Caesar”

“Little” Caesar, as he's often called, is a former bureaucrat with experience in bribing the right people, here and there. This has served him well in the past, keeping the food board of his back but times have changed, with this latest health craze.
Political ties: Once in the game, Caesar can force a lynch cancel.
My turn to stab!: Caesar can kill every night but will leave his comrades alone. Should he encounter another mobster, he will ignore them but be informed of their identity.


B.K.

AKA “The King”

B.K.'s the type that knows no personal boundaries. People of Townston have gone accustomed to him popping out of their broom closet, finding him in their showers or waking up with him lying next to them; just so that he can introduce his newest product.
Wake up with the king: B.K. often peaks up at the strangest places, handing people some of his promotional items. This time he's presenting a delicious tofu burger for the health nuts, in order to stay in business. What the health nuts don't know is that the burger contains a special surprise…
(This is the mad hatter equivalent. Each night, B.K. can give a burger to someone or activate the special ingredient in a burger that he's already given away. K.K. can only keep up to two unactivated burgers in circulation at a time but is free to give away more, once he's activated one).
Should B.K. give a tofu burger to one of his teammates, they will refuse since the Fast food mafia won't eat crap like that. B.K. Will discover the identity of a mafia member that he gives a burger to.


Gwendolen

AKA “Wendy”

“Wendy”, as she prefers being known as, has always had great difficulty setting up shop in Townston, due to her competitors having saturated the market with their goods. As a result, she's the most resentful team-member of them all.
I'm sorry, I never got that memo: Wendy goes out at night and kills anyone she pleases. Should she encounter a mafia member, she will not hesitate in taking out her rival, in order to pave way to her success.
Those were my two cents.

As a special announcement, I wish to point out that should this game exceed 20 players, I will be adding an additional serial killer role. The purpose of that role is to be the last person standing.

Glad to have you on board. As for anyone else who's curios to try it out for the first time, I welcome you to message me for any questions that you might have. I prefer constant pestering over players not playing cause they don't know what to do. So please do let me know if there's something you're unsure off.
