The Ninth Layer
Jun 19, 2007



Seedy Mansion Mini-Mafia is a 13-player mini-game that will launch on the 10th. It's based around a twist on the night phase: instead of targeting players, you target one of a few locations to do your night stuff at. I'm taking 4 more reserve spots so PM me if you're interested in one!

if you posted a game announcement please do so again in this thread for people who missed it. I have no idea what new big games are coming up, or any mini games besides Ninth.

As for my game, I don't know when I'll run it but it'll be roughly 25 players and based on the movie Cube. There will be some type of game mechanics that allow you to throw people into rooms to check for traps on top of regular mafia lynches, plus puzzles that lead to the exit and allows the town to win. Most of its been worked out and whenever it starts to get close to my time to run a game I'll start writing flavor and iron out the kinks.

I still have a Wal-Mart Mini I've been meaning to finish the flavor for because I am lazy. The setup and everything is ready. However, I probably won't run it for a while due to some life problems allowing me not to be here much.

I still have Earthbound Mafia (31-players) scheduled for starting on September 1st, 2008. I am assuming this will be after Red Storm is over and will give Grondemar a break from modding (since he is also helping with Earthbound Mafia).

If you want your game listed under Upcoming Games Currently Recruiting specifically say that you are recruiting now. At this point I'm assuming that Ninth is the only mod currently recruiting that has posted in this thread.

I have updated the queue accordingly.

I want to warn you fellers
And tell you one by one
What makes a gallows rope to swing
A woman and a gun


I will be running Friends and Neighbors Mafia once I feel like it and the minis currently ongoing have a chance to settle. Maybe in a few weeks, more or less.

Details:

13 players
Open setup, Cardflip is on
Out of thread communication allowed

The setup:

3 Houseowners
10 Vanilla Townies

Power roles (replace Vanilla townies of possibly Homeowners).
50% chance of one 'Village Bicycle (slut)'
50% chance of one 'Insomniac'
50% chance of one 'Dog Owner'
2 Lovers
2 Mafia
1 Mafia Lockpick

A coin flip will be used to determine if each town power role listed above will be in the game. Thus the town and scum cannot know for certain if a role is in the game. Three Mafia players will be assigned to the town, and could either be homeowners or replace Vanilla Townies. One Mafia player will always replace a Vanilla Townie and be the Mafia power role, the Mafia lockpick.

The two lovers are assigned randomly between any two non-homeowner players, so one, both, or neither could be Mafia members. These lovers must either spend the night in a house together or sleep on the street together, if one of them is not invited to a house for the night both must sleep on the street. These are not traditional lovers in that this is their only restriction, if one dies the other does not commit suicide.

The twist on the game is the 'homeowners'. Each night each Homeowner may invite up to 3 other players to stay in his house. These players may then accept or decline the invitation. Any player declining the invitation or not invited sleeps on the street that night. Out of thread communication or in thread communication can be used to get a spot in a house for the night.

The rest of the gameplay works around this mechanic. Each night the Mafia must kill one player. They may choose to kill anyone sleeping on the street (such players are vulnerable) or kill anyone sleeping in the same house as a Mafia member (including a Mafia homeowner). If no Mafia member was able to get into a house with a townie, and there are no townies on the streets, then they have to forfeit their kill.

The power roles work as such:

Mafia Lockpick. If the Mafia Lockpick is sleeping on the street or in a Mafia Homeowner's house he may sneak out and break into another house, killing someone even though they reside in a locked house. If the Mafia Lockpick dies the Mafia lose their ability to infiltrate houses.

Town Bicycle. The 'slut' can choose a player in a house he is in to engage in raunchy sex, preventing them from performing any actions that night but also protecting them from a kill (Mafia don't like witnesses). The Town Bicycle essentially functions as a jailer.

Town Insomniac. The Insomniac barely sleeps, and instead wanders the halls all night. If he is in a house all members of that house are protected from nightkills by other people sleeping in the house.

Town Dog Owner. The town dog owner has a loud and vicious guard dog that will bark at any intruders. If the town dog owner is in a house the Mafia Lockpick attempts to break into the kill will fail because the dog will chase him off.

Ultimately I think this game will be refreshing because of the new mechanic, players can attempt to get houses together full of people they trust with out of thread communication but must always be wary not to let Mafia in. Without a cop players must use their knowledge of who slept where and known or suspected town power roles to determine who could and could not be scum combined with their own suspicions, but they must be careful because the Mafia lockpick can throw the results off, and the Mafia, if they're gutsy, may claim a role that due to the coinflip may not be in the game to counterclaim!

I think the forums could use more open setup games so I think this one could be a fun change for pace for those tired of looking at roleclaims and basing your decision on what the mod would decide rather than what the player is doing.

Edit: One last thing I'm considering is setting the game up with a very short no-lynching day 0 for people to have some quick discussion then moving into a full night 1 with kills and everything.

Recount mafia has ended in a scum victory.

Ardent
Oct 11, 2005

in my heart my soul fire

THIS IS NOT JUST ANOTHER CIRCLEJERK POST THIS IS AN ANNOUNCMENT

(i just like bold and sirens ok??)

The old crew have become progressively more jaded and tired with various aspects of mafia, be it either the thread, or the forums games, or IRC.

A number of us, sitting around on IRC one night, hit upon an idea which we believed would have widespread appeal and help to bring us all back together. The whole point of mafia is broadly to lie and bluff and read other people. What else could resemble this?

The clear answer is: Hold'em Poker!!!

I know there's a pretty large number of you who play poker, and that there's a only slightly smaller-than-that-number of you who would like to consider yourselves at least halfway decent.

To that end, we sat down, and created PokerBot for IRC! The team behind it was me with TLB, b0lt and Wuntvor, and with input from Ecco, JoseV, MiR, Tuckfard, Illandir, Porcus, Tao, Xythar, Caps, Lomil, Wind, Trajan, Fitty and KK.

Poker has translated amazingly well to IRC. A few people were skeptical about how it would play out, but everyone who demo'd it concluded that it was loving epic & awesome with little to no coersion .

Even those who have left IRC due to ennui have been tempted to come back for this. It is *that* good - the hype over this has been entirely justified. There hasn't been an announcement this big since the launch of Mafiabot. For those who haven't come to IRC before, I strongly urge you to come take a look. It's where the cool kids hand - at time of writing, there's 31 of us in there all chillaxing. And now we have poker tourneys!

For those who want information on the bot commands, it's available here. PLEASE READ THIS FIRST BEFORE COMING IN TO PLAY. A quick note: "p status" is your friend. Use it REPEATEDLY, especially in larger games. When you have 10 people screaming in the channel at the flop in an epic game, you will well need it.

There is full control over the initial billfold, the blind settings and even the blind double speed - in it terms of either time, or in terms of the number of hands.

As regards to the whole playing for money issue: There has been talk of playing for small money, say 10 players for $10ea. As bot runner I am slightly leary with having to deal with the drama and fallout should there be issues or problems with payout or something. My inclination would be to say go to a proper poker tourney website and just pay the fees there to minimise drama, but I dunno and it's up for discussion, if enough people want to play for money to make it worthwile and someone trustworthy can be found, who knows? vOv

Once again, my apologies for the near 24 hour delay after my inital pre-announcement. We still had to iron out a few kinks in the code, and we had to get the bot hosted on a stable platform that didn't crash all the time.

We're gonna run a quick tourney now, for say 7 people apart from me. The first 7 people into #pokermafia get in!
