This game has begun.

Day 1
Day 2
Day 3
Day 4
Day 5



Round 2! Role groups have been removed and the game will be balanced the way I see fit with some influence from a random number generator.

~~Possible Mafia Roles~~

-Godfather: Always appears good-aligned to investigative roles. Night invulnerability to death/conversion.
-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.
-Consigliere: Same as investigator. See special rules below.
-Consort: Roleblocker.
-Agent: Same as Watcher and Tracker. Knows who targeted target and who target targets.


~~Possible Townie Roles~~

-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: Bulletproof vest. Breaks after it successfully blocks an attack. Always wins 1v1 with Mafia.
-Sheriff: Target player at night. "Benign" 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.
-Vigilante: Kills target. One use.
-Veteran: If power is used at night, becomes invulnerable and kills whoever targets them. Limited 2 uses.
-Poisoner: Can poison a player on odd nights. That player dies after the NEXT night phase. Able to antidote a player to save them from poison on the night they would otherwise die from it. Target is unaware of poisoning.
-Bus Driver: Targets two players. Whatever would have happened to one player would instead happen to the other. Vice versa. "Target was hit by a bus" announced to game if Bus Driver makes someone kill themselves.
-Escort: Roleblocker
-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.


~~Possible Neutral Roles~~

-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.
-Witch: Chooses "Control" and "Target". Control player uses their ability on Target player. Wins with Mafia.
-Cultist: Targets a player at night. Target loses their role and converts to a cultist. Most senior cultist chooses target. Cultists know who the other cultists are. Cannot successfully convert players on consecutive nights.
-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. Whoever hammers the Jester commits suicide at the end of the night phase.

Mechanics

Oh, you reworked some of the mechanics. Yeah sure okay.

I was originally going to make everyone a serial killer for the fun of it, but I decided I would actually want to run future games and I can't really do that if I do something stupid on game 2.

No point starting this on the weekend when everyone is having a life. I'll get this started Monday morning. We can take sign-ups until then.

In the meantime, if anyone has any ideas for roles they want to throw into the mix, I'll see if I can make it work.

Night Actions
Night 1 is missing. That's my bad.

Always looking for comments/suggestons/criticisms to better improve Role Madness style games.

Trying to work out some kinks still. I want to get rid of all dice roles during the game, like the roleblock having a 1/(# of mafia) chance of stopping the kill. I'm also not sure if Bus Drivers should be able to target themselves. For this game, I didn't allow Poison Mushroom to do so.

Epsilon Plus posted:

Yeah at least twice I offered for my team to kill me, I was seriously worried about sinking the game. TT is my new best friend.

I was so disappointed with the lack of opportunity for Jester shenanigans. I went ahead and promised TT that if he was lynched at Final 3, I would give him all the praise in the Game Over post and let him pick my avatar/text to honor him.

I think I made an error in Night 4.

-Godfather: Rascyc [Mafia kill mfcrocker]
-Consort: Epsilon Plus (Roleblocked) [roleblock CPig]
-Beguiler: Opopanax [Beguile PM] (redirects Bus)
-Sheriff: Lampsacus (Bussed!) (Tracked) [Sheriff mfcrocker]
-Tracker: mfcrocker [Track Lampsacus] (Sheriffed)
-Bus Driver: Poison Mushroom [Bus Lamp and Opop] (Bussed)
-Escort: CapitalistPig [Roleblock Epsilon] (Roleblocked)
-Jester: Tremendous Taste

PM bussed Lamp and Opop
Opop hid behind PM.
mfcrocker tracks Lamp.

What should everyone see during the phase?

Here's what I sent out
Opopanax: You hide behind PM.
Lampsacus: You check out mfcrocker. He's benign.
mfcrocker: You track Lampsacus. He targeted Opopanax and Poison Mushroom. You were Mafia killed!
Poison Mushroom: You bus Lamp and Opop.

Pretty sure I was mistaken now that I look at it.

Zesty
Jan 17, 2012



Any ideas on how to improve the game for next time? Hide the roles so people can make poo poo up?

I want to improve some roles. The witch for example. I'm thinking if he controls an investigative type role, the witch should get the results of that role, but the investigator will know who their target is changed to.

Alternatively, Witch can't learn anything in that manner, but their target is unaware they were controlled so they could potentially get some wonky results.

I'm thinking the first Witch type would be more fun.

Also lose the blackmailer role. It is a bad role that shouldn't happen
