Game Status: Day One, lots of bad opinions.


The crew walked to the back of the bus as it pulled up in front of the Variety Playhouse. John was sleeping somehow, passed out in a chair with a bandana covering his eyes.

“Hey boss, showtime. Let’s get moving.”

John Darnielle started to wakefulness and pulled the bandana down off his face. “Wow, already? I must have passed out hard, I was having the weirdest dreams.”

The roadie grinned. “Yeah man, we made good time. Hey, the last show is coming up, any idea how you’re gonna close it?”

The memory of the dream started to fade as John stood up and stretched. “Yeah. Well, I got a couple ideas. We’ll see, I’m still thinking about it.”


Someplace Else

The shouting had gotten out of hand a while ago. The group was huddled into a too-small concrete room with a single lightbulb and one table. Their voices bounced off the wall to create a never-ending cacophony of discord. One of them stood up and screamed “Enough!”

The shout reverberated through the bones of all present, and silence fell over the council.

“Look, we all want to be played at the finale and there’s not enough room. John’s just writes too drat much, there are too many of us.”

A few people murmured assent.

“But, look, we’re a collection of abstract concepts. Is compromise really too much to ask?”

Some of the people in the room had the decency to look abashed.

“And hey, why the hell are we in this room anyway? We can be anywhere we imagine.”

As if on queue, the room expanded and shifted into a large, enclosed amphitheatre. However, there was still just the single incandescent bulb on the ceiling for light.

“Oh come on, someone fix that al-”

The light shattered, plunging the group into darkness. By the time someone had the sense to imagine stadium lights flooding the room, the speaker was bleeding out in a pile of white-noise and static on the floor.


Soru, This Year, Town Vanilla was silenced day one!

”I guess it did kill him,” one of you whispers. Most of the discography vanishes in a puff of thought to the recesses of John’s mind at the sight of the body, not willing to risk their existence, strange as it is. Those who are left standing in the amphitheatre are a motley collection of hits, each with their own motive to be determined.


Hi! This is a mafia game for thirteen players. It’s nothing too exciting but maybe you will like it.


Rules
  • Have fun. Respect your fellow players and go for a walk if you find yourself getting too angry at mafia.
  • Don’t edit your posts without express permission. First time it happens in the game is a warning, the next time somebody has to die.
  • Please don't toxx, play truth or dare, or in any other way attempt to circumvent the game mechanics.
  • Don’t talk with other players out of thread unless you are told you may do so.
  • Do not talk when you are dead please. Limit any post death chat to generic Go team! or somesuch.
  • Do not copy any text from communications with me.
  • Don’t use fake day-actions.
  • Respect the hammer, don't post once a player has died but has not flipped.
  • You may only submit theme music for a day once per game. First-come, first served.
  • This is not a rule, but flavor arguments are not a good idea.
  • I decided to create an actual action priority list after my last couple games so that could be a thing that matters?

An empty room with a lightbulb? When does the phone start to ring?

(Yeah, I'm in. I would argue that "In the Craters on the Moon" is the most Mafia-like song on Heretic Pride, but the fact that a reasonable argument can be made for several songs on that album being totally Mafia-y is representative of what a good concept this is.)

This was one of the best records I heard in `13, which I picked up based on something Darnielle posted online about it. I suggest cranking it up.
