I don't know what to do,
I'm going to lose my mind







Welcome to Utopia! Our world is currently on the tip of change. A graphic novel thought to be the ramblings of a crazy man has predicted world-changing events. It's like opening a door… to reality. Whilst the original novel is easily accessible, there is a sequel. Not many people know about it but those who do also understand the power of combining both parts. With the belief that the script can unlock the future of humanity, a faction wanting to change the lives of world’s entire population has been growing. They have been coined ~The Network~. Their goals are currently unknown but they have left a trail of bodies in their attempts to reach them.

17th January 2013. London, England:

A man lays face down on ground. Moments earlier he was witnessed falling from the block of flats rising above him. Black ink stains his fingertips. Nine individuals that were near the scene of the crime at the time have been apprehended. They are now in MI5 custody. The graphic novel’s location is unknown.

----

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.

If you've never played mafia this wiki is a good starting place for information. Basically you lie to people/figure out who's lying depending on what role you get. The town will win when when they eliminate all mafia players. The mafia will win when when they reach parity with the town players. This set up is very newbie friendly so don't be afraid to sign up. I'm also eager to answer any questions you might have about the game.

Anyway this is an F11 which means I will roll a genuine four sided die and based on the result I will use one of these set ups:

• 1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Roleblocker, 1 Sane Cop, 1 Doctor, 5 Vanilla Townies
• 1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Roleblocker, 7 Townies.
• 2 Mafia Goons, 1 Sane Cop, 6 Townies.
• 2 Mafia Goons, 1 Doctor, 6 Townies.

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.

Once the game starts you will receive one of these Role PMs:

Vanilla Town posted:

You are VANILLA and TOWN ALIGNED. You're on the good side but you have no special powers

Cop posted:

You are a TOWN ALIGNED COP. You're on the good side and you have a special power. Every NIGHT you can INVESTIGATE a player and you will find out if they are TOWN or MAFIA

Doctor posted:

You are a TOWN ALIGNED DOCTOR. You're on the good side and you have a special power. Every NIGHT you can PROTECT a player and they cannot be KILLED that night.

Mafia Goon posted:

You are MAFIA and MAFIA ALIGNED. You're on the bad side but you have no special powers. Your MAFIA BUD is _______ and every NIGHT the two of you can pick one player to KILL.

Mafia Roleblocker posted:

You are a MAFIA ALIGNED ROLEBLOCKER. You're on the bad side and you have a special power. Every NIGHT you can BLOCK one player and they will be unable to do their regular action. You MAFIA BUD is _______ and every NIGHT the two of you can pick one player to KILL.

RULES

• No editing your posts.
• No talking OOT unless you are able to do so.
• Don't post your role PM.
• Don't spectator-post.
• Don't post after hammers or daykills.
• Don't post after dying.
• Don't encrypt your posts, make Toxx clauses, or play Truth or Dare.
• Don't lurk. I will tell you if I don't think you're posting enough.
• Don't go against the spirit of the game. The spirit of the game is inviting and fun.
• Be nice!

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:

Random stuff:

•This is my first time running a game so be gentle
•I have made sure that all flavour deviates enough to not spoil the show. Some characters have been poorly rewritten. The only advantage players that have watched the show will have is the knowledge that they have watched a great show. Character alignments have also been shuffled!
•A lot of this OP has been (with permission) stolen from MildManeredManikin. Thank you!

Ha! I remember these guys. We were in a game together and they were both scum, and I was able to scum hunt them on day one and two respectively. Looks like they still aren't over it.

And Harold krell can gently caress right off, he literally posted nothing of use in the scumdoc - we never even knew his role until he died

You are a little piss.

I've noticed several times that any game I try to join that you're also in, you act like a whiny baby and quit as if you're a loving martyr. Then stupid people decide to sympathize with you and kick me from the signoffs.

Well...

Congratulations! Welcome to the 7th circle of hell!

I'm going to dedicate this entire game to making your stay as miserable as possible! Aren't you lucky?

To start, why don't you go ahead and retract your vote before you regret it?

I'm going to review some of Krell's games tomorrow after my lecture. I've had a few people say they would play without him and I want to check whether I'm comfortable modding a game with him in.

On the plus side I rewatched the first episode of Utopia with my housemates last night so I'm all brushed up on flavour

I'd been happy, and I was happy still. For all to be accomplished,
for me to feel less lonely,
all that remained to hope
was that on the day of my execution
there should be a huge crowd of spectators and that they should
greet me with howls of execration.

I kicked krell out of the first game I ever modded.

None can convince me that he plays for any other reason than to piss people off.
