Mafia is a party game that can be played in a group or online. The premise is that a group of townsfolk (the good guys) try to discover and root out the Mafia menace hiding amongst them. The game has day and night phases: During the day everyone attempts to discover who the Mafia are, and vote to eliminate them (execution). During the night discussion is halted and the Mafia choose someone to kill. The game ends when either the Mafia have control of the town or every Mafia member is dead.

For this game we will be playing an extended F11. This means I will role a genuine 4 sided die and based on the result I'll pick one of the following setups:


Each one has an equal chance of happening. There will not be any roles that are not listed here. If you're unfamiliar with the roles, I've included links to the relevant articles explaining each role.

Action Resolution
Roleblocks completely stop the target's role from happening. If recipient had an action, they will be informed that it was not successful. If the Town BP is roleblocked, they aren't considered BP that night but they will not be informed. The Roleblocker can also perform the night kill.

Regarding all other actions, no target will be informed the actions were used on them, although the scum kill target can probably guess.

The Doctor cannot self protect or target the same player on consecutive nights.

Votefinder

There will be a little posting bot called votefinder who counts your votes. Don't mind him, he's just here to help. To make sure it reads your votes properly use the bold tags (control-b will get them to pop up) and put two pound signs, then write vote and who you're voting for. It will look like this:

Alright. I'm going to send out the PMs I can right now but I'm going to close the thread and the forbid out of thread communication until the game starts which will be when forums poster BLACKNYTE opens up his PM box.

If blacknyte doesn't show up and open their PM box before the end of day one I'll replace them but I think it's unfair to the rest of you to keep this thread closed while we're waiting.

The game has started because the people got impatient and threatened to "rise" up against the the mold. I mean mod, ha!

Blacknyte is just not here for the start of the game. I wouldn't kill him right away, though, because if he continues to not show up, he may be replaced and it doesn't make sense to kill him for not posting when a replacement may be about to pop in and start posting.

Pretty much! I know D1 is often dismissed as useless but from what I've seen there can actually be some good clues for later if people are chatty enough.

Anyway, I'm going out for dinner now so I will be back to chat you guys up later tonight! Good luck, friends.

Ok, I know the first day isn't 100% random but right now until we get some more discussion it might as well be. So I asked a RNG to pick out the scum and it came back with Anias, Blacknyte, and Carpet Shark. Buuut Anias's number came up 4 times in a row so I think it's trying to tell me something.

Guys what do you think of my reads so far:

Allen Wren - Has a cool bird in his name, he can stay
Anias - Sounds similar to 'annihilate'. Very foreboding. Tell me Anias, are you going to annihilate town, or scum?
Atrocious Toaster - Cool
Blacknyte - This is the name of a nerd game store my nerd brother likes but since this person isn't here yet I'll let it slide. This time.
Dragonatrix - The Dragon Matrix is inherently trustworthy.
Epsilon plus - I hate that book; definitely scum
Fathis Munk - Fathis Munk is a bad anagram of Math is Funk, a sentiment I can get behind. You can stay.
Gabriel Pope - drat, that's the name of an angel and the Pope, can't vote for him.
Pez - I think this stands on it's own

I was actually serious when I voted Kerro.

You notice Kerro asked early on about lynching blacknyte (ie, was looking for a scapegoat for D1 early) then promptly jumped on the Atrocious Toaster vote. Being highly survival-oriented is a scum trait.

Oh hey, the thread opened when I wasn't looking. I have no idea what Carpet Shark meant by "this stands on its own" by my name. Maybe that breads are carbs and so is sugar and Pez is sugar so that makes me bread.

I've never played before so I have no clue who to vote for yet. I'll follow the mob mentality for now.

The toaster post Dragonatrix made was pretty funny but usually the "joke phase" of these games is just stupid poo poo posting. I'd rather reach for a case and see how people react and get the game rolling than go through some sort of mandatory poo poo posting period.

Eh, gotta get the ball rolling somehow. When you're shooting blindly it doesn't really matter what your justification is, might as well goof around a little bit while you wait to gather material. I mean, I prefer that people keep it halfway relevant but when you get down to it trying to build a first-post case isn't really likely to contribute a lot more than random shitposting.

Well, ideally, if you actually start making some shallow case on someone you might get responses and reactions to those responses and the game can start generating real content.
