Mafia XLVII: Insert Catchy Title Here



Alright
everyone. It is time for a another rousing game of mafia. Introducing
Mafia XLVII: Insert Catchy Title Here. (That is 47 for people that don't know roman numberals past 39) This game goes by the basic rules of
mafia. In case you didn't know Mafia is a forum based role playing
game where players play the part of villagers or mafia members who are
fighting over the control of their town. This is a turned based game
where each turn takes 24 hours and alternates between day and night. The
villagers are more active during the day while the mafia rules the
night. In order to win you have to communicate with the other players,
form alliances, betray or protect and do whatever it takes for your side
to succeed. That's all you need to know really. The best way to learn
the game is to play it and I will take special care to ensure that you
won't get lost. Well now? What are you waiting for? Sign up so we can
get this madness started!

Cycles will start around 5pm CST (10pm GMT). I will give fair enough warning if this deviates.

Night actions will go in the order that they are received.

This will be a standard game with the addition of one role called the
random. Only the person who has this role will know what it is and
does. This role will be a protown role though (more details later in
post).

TOWNIE ROLES
The townie’s win condition is to find and kill all mafias.

Mayor
The Mayor is elected at the start of the game and has numerous roles. His special abilities are:
Seal of the Mayor: Increased vote count of 2
Desperate times call for desperate measures:
Ability to declare up to two double lynches anytime during the game
(must notify me during night cycle or early on in the day so voting is
arranged accordingly). When double lynches are in effect each player
gets two votes on two different people.
Did you ever know that you’re my hero?:
The mayor cannot be killed during the night while his bodyguard(s) are
alive. Only the Mayor will know who the bodyguards are.
Let’s celebrate!: On Day One, the newly elected mayor can declare an insta-lynch

Pardoner
As
a check and balance to the Mayor, the pardoner is the runner up to the
Mayor. He has the protection of the very same bodyguards as the Mayor
and thus remains invincible at night. His special ability, however, is
to pardon up to 2 people from being lynched at any time during the
course of the game. He must notify me while voting is coming to a close
(you'll usually be able to tell who is going to get lynched towards the
end of voting) or right after I have ended it. I will wait a bit between
votes being tallied and the shift into night when people are lynched so
you will also have time then to notify me. The pardoner may not pardon
himself and he may not pardon more than one person per day.

Bodyguard
Random
townies will receive the role of bodyguard once the mayor and pardoner
have been elected. The mayor alone will know who these people are. The
bodyguard cannot be a mafia or special role, he can only be a regular
townie. (Might delete this role and just give the Pardoner and Mayor
extra lives instead)

Vigilante
You
are the caped crusader of Townston. A masked man who has decided to
take the law into his own hands. Each night you can target and kill
someone who you believes to be a villain. Be careful who you chose
though because you just might be taking out a friendly.

Paramedic
You
have the ability to watch one other player during the night. You may
choose not to use this ability also. When a player is watched he cannot
die unless the number of people attacking him outnumbers the number of
people watching him or his night lives. In other words if two mafia
attack a person being watched by one paramedic, the person will die. A
clue will not be left behind if he is saved, the town won't know who was
saved.

Veteran
You've been
around the block a few times and know how to escape an attack on your
life. But for how long? The veteran gets 2 night lives, meaning he must
be hit by 2 attackers to kill him (much like having paramedics watching
over you, except you lose one life if you incur one attack). If a
paramedic is protecting you will not lose a life for the hit the
paramedic protects. If you incur a hit I will notify you the following
day.

Paranoid
While pro-town,
the paranoid is a wee bit unhinged by his experiences in the war. The
Paranoid will kill whoever was the first person to target him in any way
during the night, whether it be mafia or villager (such as a paramedic
opting to protect him). The Paranoid is unable to NOT kill, but will
only kill one person a night. The paranoid due to his disorder, he
thinks he is just a townie.

Detective
You
have three abilities you may use. You have the ability to ask me
whether or not a specific person committed the murder and get a yes/no
answer. You have the ability to, 2 times a game, ask me what alignment a
person is. And for the last ability you may ask me how many mafia voted
to lynch a specific person after the conclusion of voting (cannot use
this on mayor election). You may only use one ability per day/night
cycle. You cannot ask about both people in office.

Random

You
are a townie, but your role may or may not help them win. This role is
selected at random and only the one with the role will know what it is.
The role will be pulled from this section of the Mafia Game Wikipedia article.

Townie
You
are a dedicated townie! Although you do not have any special abilities,
you participate by solving clues, networking, and voting.

MAFIA ROLES
The
mafia’s win condition is to kill all townies or enough townies so
that the numbers are equal or less than the number of alive mafias.
Unlike townies, all mafias know who each other are. With the exception
of the mad hatter and godfather, all mafia members can kill once per
night cycle. A mafia cannot kill a mafia however.

Godfather
The
godfather has the special ability of being able to leave severed horse
heads in the target's bed. In addition, has the minor ability of being
invulnerable to being killed during night phase unless all other members
of his family are already dead. The Godfather will appear to be an
innocent townie to any detective. The godfather is allowed to kill, but
he will be able to be spotted by detective for what he really is after
this time. Additionally he has the ability to, once per game, cancel a
lynch.

Mad Bomber
The mad
hatter’s special ability is to plant two bombs throughout the whole
game on two specific players. He may choose when and who to plant these
bombs. Should the mad hatter dies, kaboom! Those whom he planted the
bomb to will die as well. He can also detonate a bomb whenever he sees
fit. (A clue will be left in this case.) If the target dies before you
do however, you lose the bomb.

Mafia
You are a regular mafia member. You get to stab someone in the face every night cycle.

SPECIAL ROLES
You play by our own rules and have your own win conditions.

Serial Killer
You are neither townie nor mafia. You may kill whomever you please. To
win, you must be the last one alive. For the townies to win, you must be
dead.

If I need a title, this is a good one – although there will probably be gender confusion for the rest of my mafia lives.

which comes back to the first point, this could be a good thing.

no. I'm not that special.
but I know if i was going to send a round of pq's to see if we got answers, 1337 would be the first to answer and there'd be no way he wouldn't.
