You think you have the wherewithal to figure out my puzzle vagina?





(Stock image shamelessly stolen from here.)
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.

The previous games have all been very simple. This is good for learning the basics of Mafia, but can end up with you missing some of the nuances, some of the intricacies. So, this is my attempt to make a game with a bit more complexity than Bread and Butter, but is still accessible for new players. Unlike most of the beginner games, which are Open Setups, where the quantities of available roles is visible at the start, this will be a Closed Setup. You won't know what roles there might or might not be! However, trying to learn all the roles in this game could make anyone's heads explode. So the roles will all be taken from this list:

Town Roles
Vanilla Townie - No special powers. Most of the players in the game will be this.
Cop - Can investigate another player's alignment at night.
Doctor - Can protect another player at night from being killed.
Tracker - Can follow another player at night, and find out if they targeted anyone with any powers.
Miller - When investigated, looks like a bad guy.
Bulletproof - So tough that whenever someone tries to kill them (except by lynching), it fails.

Scum Roles
Mafia Goon - Part of the team of bad guys, but has no unique powers.
Godfather - Shows up as a good guy when investigated by cops.
Roleblocker - Can target a player and make their powers stop working.
Rolecop - Investigates a player and find out their role.

Other Roles
Survivor - Someone who isn't a good guy, or a bad guy, but instead, who wins if they survive to the end of the game.

Note that not all of these roles will be present in the game, this is just a list of all the ones that are possible.

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:

Don't encrypt your posts, make Toxx clauses, or play Truth or Dare.

Other Notes:
You should be able to access Google Documents semi-reliably if you intend to play, as this is the standard way scum communicates.
If you don't have PMs and want to play, you should post an e-mail address along with your intention to play.
Don't worry about things like "Weak Doctor" or "Naive Cop" for this game, that won't come up. They're pretty stupid, IMO, anyways.

Oh no, don't actually sign me up, I assume you want newer players in here and stuff right?

I don't play in games with the shitpost tag anyway.

Some old guard can be useful, especially to help guide their :shobon: scum buddies to not falling all over themselves.

And I'm trying to fix that. Hoping to get the VEG tag from GwS.
