Mechanics
48 hour days, 24 hour nights
Typical majority requirement for lynch
Game will continue regardless of Mafia:Others ratio.
Random Mafia member performs the kill for Bodyguard/Roleblock purposes
Last Mafia standing becomes Vanilla Mafia

If the game is left with only two players, this is the order in which someone automatically wins the matchup.

Arsonist > Serial Killer > Mafia > Cultist > Witch > Townie > Executioner > Amnesiac > Jester
(note: Citizen Role always wins 1v1 against a Mafia)


~~Mafia Groups~~

--Godfather
-Godfather: Always appears good-aligned to investigative roles. Night invulnverability.

--Deception
-Blackmailer: Target is unable to do anything but vote during the next day phase.
-Beguiler: Target is hit by whatever would hit the Beguiler.
-Framer: Target appears "Evil" to Sheriff, "Owns a gun" to Investigator, or guilty results to tracker/watcher.

--Support
-Consigliere: Same as investigator. See special rules below.
-Consort: Roleblocker.
-Agent: Same as Watcher and Tracker. Knows who targeted target and who target targets.


~~Town Groups~~

--Government
-Mayor: Can reveal anytime during a day phase. Vote counts for 2 after reveal. Uses ##Reveal Mayor in the thread. No one else may do this.
-Jailor: Protects and Roleblocks target at night.
-Citizen: 1 use bulletproof vest. Always wins 1v1 with Mafia.

--Investigative
-Sheriff: Target player at night. "Good" or "Evil" Result
-Investigator: Learn information about target. (see special rules down below)
-Tracker: Knows who target targets that night.
-Watcher: Knows who targeted target.

--Killing
-Vigilante: Kills target. One use.
-Veteran: If power is used at night, becomes invulnerable and kills whoever targets them. Limited 2 uses.
-Poisoner: Target player dies after the NEXT night phase. Two uses. Can't be used on consecutive nights.

--Disruption
-Bus Driver: Targets two players. Whatever would have happened to one player would instead happen to the other. Vice versa. Targets aware they were bussed.
-Escort: Roleblocker
-Absorber: Absorbs abilities used on themselves. Can use one of the abilities used on them on the following night. Can't target abilities on self. Does not mitigate the abilities (you still get killed, roleblocked, etc)
--Protective
-Doctor: Target is invulnerable that night. Can't target self.
-Bodyguard: If target is attacked, bodyguard and attacker both die. Target survives. Ignores night invulnerability. Can't target self.


~~Neutral Groups~~

--Killing
-Serial Killer: Target dies. Kills roleblockers that target them. Wins if final player.
-Arsonist: Can douse target or light. Light causes all previously doused targets to die. Victims know they are doused. Ignores night invulnerability. Wins if final player.

--Evil
-Witch: Chooses "Control" and "Target". Control player uses their ability on Target player. Wins with Mafia.
-Cultist: Targets player on odd nights. Target loses their role and becomes a cultist. Most senior cultist chooses target.

--Benign
-Amnesiac: Chooses a dead player. Becomes their role. One use.
-Executioner: Given a random Townie Player Name at the beginning of the game. That player must be lynched for the Executioner to claim personal victory. If target dies in another manner, Executioner becomes a Jester.
-Survivor: Has limited amount of bulletproof vests. Wins personal victory if they Survive to the end. Limited uses based on total players.
-Jester: Wins personal victory if lynched. One random voter against the Jester dies that night.

Here you people are. What kind of maniac opens a separate thread to start the game?

Checked through the list of players and who has posted in this thread. You're the last one to figure it out after a link in the final post in the sign-up thread, a link put into the OP of the same thread, and a link to this thread in your Role PM.

:bravo:

Honestly though, I scoured through the rules thread for this forum and one of the rules came off that there needed to be a "Recruiting" tagged thread for Sign-ups. Don't really follow this sub-forum too closely, so there didn't seem much harm in this method.

There's nothing inherently wrong with it, just something we don't do in mafia, since our sign ups tend to be a lot shorter.

Also I've been working an inhuman amount of overtime and it's using all my brain up

couldn't you just mass claim in this setup, since it would force a bunch of counter claims and town would just eventually win

Mass claim is a dick move. Don't do it.

I don't know how you guys do it on SA, but Mass roleclaiming as a big no-no is a pretty standard Mafia rule.

The Great Twist

It's a quirk from where this version of Mafia is converted from. Handled just fine across a few 20-man games on another forum. I guess you guys can't handle the etiquette. I'll make sure to tweak that mechanic if I start another game here.

Asiina posted:

Also an absorber which could verify which role was active in each slot was a huge issue since it left no room for counterclaiming.

Totally agree. I threw it in because it looked neat and I wanted one more role in that category, and the during the first nightphase I realized how insanely overpowered it would be.

The role could still potentially work without showing the setup, but it's still quite strong.

I try to remove dice rolls as much as I can in favor of players making the decisions. I currently don't know how I'm going to have the Mafia kill performed. As it was, every time a Mafia member was rollblocked, I rolled a 1/x chance that the Mafia kill fails. (x being the number of Mafia) Perhaps I'll have the Mafia decide which of their own they'll send for the kill. What do you guys think?

Opopanax posted:

Yeah we pretty much always have stuff like the kill assigned to a specific person. Makes your job a lot easier

I run a role madness game. I clearly do not care about the amount of work to end a night phase.

A specific person performing the kill makes it easy for a roleblocker to completely shut down the Mafia.

Opopanax posted:

Ooh, that's what he thought I meant. Yeah not a designated killer or anything, you can choose the same persona all the time or a different one each night

Oh okay.

If anyone has any suggestions for a role, any fun Mafia roles or townie disruption type roles would be good.

I'm not too sure if anyone would be particularly interested in a passive ability unless it's particularly exciting.
