I must be bloody insane…
Since it seems that Mafia is going away, and that was one of the many things that made this community so lively, I think it may be time to say forget the stupid color scheme, I wanna have some fun!
EDIT: I understand that someof you will be a bit hesitant to join because of this, but I promise the only people I'll give your email to is to your teammates if you're on the Mafia side of things.
ATTENTION: In order to work around the PQ system, I'll need everyone's email addresses. You can send me an email with the subject line of Mafia 49 with your Duck username and I'll send you a confirmation email. Again the only email that's going to be publicly facing the world is mine. You can email me at salsa.the.geek@gmail.com
So without further ado, I present Mafia 49.

Mafia XLIX: The Return to Townston Tradition

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

PRO TOWN:
1 Detective
1 Vigilante
2 Paramedic
1 Paranoid
1 Veteran
8 Townie

Criminals:
Mafia:
1 Godfather
1 Mad Hatter
3 Hitman

1 Serial Killer

ELECTED/GRANTED POSITIONS
These are additional roles and powers that can be granted to some of the players, via election or random selection. Use them wisely.

Mayor
The Mayor is elected at the start of the game and has numerous roles. His special abilities are:
First act!: The Mayor has the option of insta-lynching one player as soon as he's elected. Whoever the Mayor picks gets lynched. (be forewarned if you plan to use this ability since no clues have been given that could help point you at a criminal at that time.)
Seal of the Mayor: Increased vote count of 2 during lynching.
Desperate times, desperate measures: The Mayor can declare 2 double lynches anytime during the game When double lynches are in effect each player gets one vote for each lynch going on.(must notify me during night cycle or early on in the day so voting can be arranged accordingly).
Did you ever know that you're my hero: Both mayor and Pardoner cannot be killed during the night while the bodyguard(s) remain alive. The mayor will be informed of the identity of the bodyguards.

Pardoner
As a check and balance to the Mayor, the pardoner is the runner up to the Mayor. The pardoner has the ability to cancel two lynches throughout 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. The pardoner will have to notify me within one hour of lynch vote results before the lynch is actually posted. He is unable to pardon on the insta-lynch. The pardoner will also receive protection from the bodyguards but will not be informed of their identities.

Pro Town:
To win, you must kill/lynch all Mafia, and the serial killer. Good luck.

Bodyguard
Random Townies will receive the role of bodyguard once the mayor has been elected. The bodyguards and the mayor will be informed of their identities. As long as the bodyguards are alive, the Mayor and the Pardoner cannot be killed via night hits. A bomb sent to a protected person will also be intercepted.

Vigilante
You are the self proclaimed hero 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, which you must tell me about before the end of night. 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 members attack a person being watched by one paramedic, the person will die. The narrative will state that someone was attacked but saved and the narration will include a clue pointing out the identity of the attacker. It does not matter if the paramedic chooses to watch someone before or after he is attacked; he will protect that person regardless. The Paramedic will also intercept bombs sent to a townie during the night he is under watch and can discover planted bombs.

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 two lives, meaning two hits in one night must be made on him before he dies. A veteran can survive a bombing attempt if he still has both night lives but it will count as a hit attempt.

The Detective
The detective is after the bad guys of Townston. His brilliant reasoning skills and numerous contacts makes him among the best investigators in the Town. The Detective is capable of using his powers both day and night.
And you are?: Using this ability the Detective can find out much about the person that he's scrutinizing. Things like, what size of shoes he wears, his favorite brand of toothpaste, magazine subscription but most importantly, he can find out if the villager is a Pro Townie or a criminal. (Mafia and serial killers will show up as criminals, unless they have powers to help hide their identities.) This power can only be used twice.
Who dun it?: Whenever a crime has been committed, it's up to the detective to investigate the crime scene. Should he choose to investigate someone, the detective can figure out if that someone was responsible for the crime (The detective can ask the GM if a specific player committed a specific crime and get a yes/no answer).
This election has been rigged!: Looking up the vote results, the detective can figure out if any criminals participated in the election. Should he choose to use this power he'll be able to find out if any criminals voted for a specific player (mayoral or lynch) and also how many criminals voted in it. This power can only be used once.

Paranoid
The paranoid is a wee bit unhinged by his experiences in some horrible and bloody war. During days, he's perfectly normal but during the night he keeps to himself and relives the horrors of his past. The Paranoid will kill whoever was the first person to target him in any way during the night, whether it be mafia or townie (such as a paramedic opting to protect him). The Paranoid is unable to NOT kill, but will only kill one person a night. Should two persons interact with him during the night, the first person will die but the second will not. Special note, investigation powers can be used on him without fear of death since the Detective is merely investigating him and checking his background and is not directly interacting with him. Also, the paranoid is not aware that he's insane and thus believes himself to be a normal townie.

Townee!
Work Hard so your Vigilante and detective doesn't have to! You get to vote for lynches, and solve clues left in narrations.

CRIMINALS!

MAFIA
The mafia’s win condition is to kill all the townies and the serial killer. Unlike townies, all mafia members know who each other are. All mafia members can kill once per night cycle. With the exception of the Godfather, a mafia member cannot kill fellow mafia.

Godfather
Horseheaded
: The godfather is able to leave a severed horse head in the target's bed. This will scare the targeted player, causing him to go into hiding for the next day and night cycle. During this time the player can't perform any action at all. He can't vote for the next lynch and he can't use his powers if he has any. While the player is in hiding he can't be killed, but he can not solve clues either, as he's out of town. A person who's already been targeted with a horse head attack can't be targeted again.
Call in a favor: The Godfather can once per game, cancel a lynch. If he uses that ability, during a double lynch, both lynches are canceled.
Behind the curtains: The Godfather doesn't dirty his hands since he has his goons to carry out his orders. The godfather will appear as a pro-townie to the detective. He's also considered to be protected if he's attacked during the night.
Now it's personal: The godfather has decided to take actions into his own hands. By brandishing his pistol the leader has taken to the streets. He gains the ability to kill once per night but looses all benefits he received from his Behind the curtains power. If the godfather is the only mafia member left, this power is automatically activated.

Mad Hatter
Each night, the Mad Hatter is able to plant a single bomb on someone or detonate a bomb that's already been planted. He can't plant a bomb and detonate during the same night. The Mad Hatter can at most keep two undetonated bombs in circulation but is free to plant more once he's detonated or lost one of them. Every time he detonates a bomb, a clue is given about his identity. Should the mad hatter be killed either through a lynch or a night hit, all bombs in circulation will detonate, killing his targets. If a target of his somehow dies by other means, the mad hatter loses that bomb. Bombs can be intercepted by a protector, giving a clue to the identity of the Mad Hatter as well.

Hitman
You are the mafia hitman. Each night you get to shoot somebody in the eye. Don't forget to have fun.

SERIAL KILLER
While these individuals are not allied with the Mafia, they're none the less dangerous people. Their ultimate goal is to cause as much chaos as possible. To win, everyone must DIE
——

Clues will be from the profile of players, Avatars, First 5 pages of their comics, and comic thumbnails. (not from author notes). And very little based on their in thread actions.

Actions/Votes must be sent in by 2300 GMT/1700 CST with narrations being approximately 1800 CST/0001 GMT

When it comes to 2 party killing actions (Player A wants to kill Player B and B wants to kill A) The first person to get their action in, wins.

Everybody's welcome and I hope that we can get some life back into this community. I hope to start in a week so come on in an dsign right up!

Victims, er I mean . . .

In if it gets off the ground. The games weren't stopped short because of color schemes but lack of PQ notification.

Before I even consider to join, I must adress on how you(The Warnock) plan to tackle the pq notification problem, which put the Mafia games on ice. In case you didn't know the last mafia game sorta fizzled out due to inactivity…

This is not Warnock.  This is The Warnock.  I expect he Has Plans.  I will enlist in this so called Mafia game.  but everyone is right:  beware the (non)PQ alert.
 
seriously, I think any body who wants to play just has to make it a habit to check their PQs at least once a day.  it's actually do-able
under new management

technically it is. Also it would be easier if the Mayoral/Lynch vote would be open, instead of pq the gamemaster…

Well, my last account was a bit of a dip.
Second. I'm going to update the first post with my email. Anyone wanting to play just needs to send me one. (Sorry I thought would have been fixed by now, also haven't been on in a while. :P)
Third, I just sent Skool a PQ. I'm actually quite happy about the response so far. If we don't get enough players I'll adjust the rules a bit (or a lot) to make it more fun and interesting. There will be a Mafia 49, even if this is all we have. I'll also try to be actively recruiting, so I hope to have more than this.

Hey Salsa!
 
Why don't we just post everything in the forum, even kill requests, one game of super transparent mafia. It would completely change the way the game would work, making playing it safe a much wiser option. I think it might be cool…

Okay, it looks like there's only going to be five players. Are there any objections to drastic changes to the rules?

49 huh?  Damn.
God needed the Devil, the Beatles needed the Rolling Stones, Hakoshen needs me.
I'm the enemy he requires to define him.
Soon or later, he'll bring me back to life again for another epic encounter of shouting about power levels and grimacing.
