The Pit Awaits




"Out, away from all - Thatís where terror and beauty merge. Donít go looking for the occult in the city, surrounded by countless prying eyes and nosy neighbors. Look in isolation, where it can grow undisturbed . . .Ē


* * *


Surrey isnít a prison for hardcore, violent criminals. Mainly itís filled with an uneasy mix of nonviolent repeat offenders, first time violent criminals(usually crimes of passion), and drug users serving mandatory sentences. It was recently the home of ďFather Freedom,Ē a cult leader convicted of fraud - though he was guilty of a great deal more. One of his followers drove a truck full of dynamite and blasting caps into the wall during his exercise time, and he escaped into a waiting car driven by three other devotees. A few other prisoners escaped in the confusion - taking a couple corrections officers with them as hostages.

They made it to the highway just as an unseasonable hailstorm began. At the highway, they commandeered two separate minivans from their drivers. They immediately took to the back roads - not noticing how low on gas the car was. When it ran out, they approached the nearest farmhouse, where they cut the phone lines. The plan is to hide out at the farmhouse until the heat dies down, then take off in the morning. Simple enough, right?



This is a mafia game for thirteen players. It should be quick, brutal, and spooky. New players are very welcome.

Hello and welcome!

III. At some point during the course of the game you may feel compelled to tell other players about the role you were assigned, that's part of mafia. Whenever you claim, don't [quote.][/quote] or copy large portions of text from the role PM I sent you.

In example:

1) Hey guys, my character name is Officer Bullets and I'm the cop, so don't kill me. I'm just two weeks from retirement! GOOD CLAIM

2) Hey guys, don't lynch me because this is my role.

Somberbrero posted:

You are Officer Bullets, Town Cop!

You just have to make it another two weeks and you'll be able to retire in peace, but you refuse to leave the force while there are still Mafias in your town!

You win when all threats to the town have been eliminated.

BAD CLAIM

IV. If a player is lynched or someone uses a day action that indicates another player has died, no one should post anything else until I reveal their role and alignment. Accidents happen with this rule, it's not a big deal but I'd like to discourage it from happening intentionally.

V. Sometimes moderators will create games where some power uses, or actions, take place in the thread during the discussion/voting day phase as opposed to the night phase. Rarely, a player might try to trick the thread into thinking they have a power they don't actually possess in order to get a reaction. In example, as Vanilla town I might post ##kill player, pretending I have the vigilante role, in the thread and use their reaction to the thought that they've been knocked out of the game as an unfair advantage. I don't anticipate that happening.

I should use NaNoWriMo as an excuse to finally finish that gamebook project I started from a year ago.

I am so psyched for this player list.

Can you explain how this works in the forums? I know mafia but, for instance, I don't have PMs. How does the night phase play out? Can you send my role via email, etc?

I'm possibly in if the no PM thing is ok! I have a couple of weeks between jobs so I need something to do!

What typically ends up happening is that the mafia open up a google doc and communicate in real time there, so if you end up being mafia you don't really need plat for any kind of communication past the initial contact.

Most mods will be cool about accepting a player without plat, and Somber is a pretty cool dude, but it's definitely easier on the mod if you have it.

The Platinum Upgrade helps support the forums. If you end up enjoying Mafia, it's not a bad investment.

Yeah that's not a big deal, just give me an email you'd like to use instead.

Alright, my goal is to try and have roles out and the game up before I leave work today. See you all then.
