These are dark times in Skyrim, the northernmost province of Tamriel. Dragons, creatures long thought only legends, have returned and taken wing, burning man and beast alike. Skyrim is also ravaged by a brutal civil war between the Imperials and the Stormcloak rebels, led by Ulfric Stormcloak, Jarl of Windhelm, a war that pits kin against kin. These are dark times for the ancient province of Skyrim, dark times made only that much worse by the foul creatures that lurk in the night. Can these horrors be overcome, or is Skyrim doomed to darkness for all time?

Welcome to The Elder Scrools V: Skyrim Mafia, run by EXAKT Science and co-modded by the inimitable Somberbrero! This will be a game for 19 players, and will use a modified Fire and Ice setup. While I won't turn away new players, this is going to be a fairly nonstandard game, so having some degree of mafia experience is definitely a plus. That said, all of the general Something Awful Mafia rules apply:

RULES
  • Days will be 2-3 IRL days, Nights will be no longer than 24 hours, though I'd like to keep them closer to 12 if possible.
  • Executions will be majority (days can end without an execution)
  • Nights are closed
  • Don't fake day actions
  • Don't post after hammers
  • Don't post if you're dead. A single content-free death post is acceptable
  • Don't post mod communication
  • Don't edit your posts
  • No outside communication unless your role says you're allowed. This applies even if you're dead. There will be a spectator doc.
  • Don't lurk! Player participation is crucial to an enjoyable mafia experience for everyone involved. Please endeavor to make at least a couple of posts per IRL day. If I don't think you're posting enough, I'll let you know via PM, and if it continues to be an issue, either replace you or modkill you, depending on the circumstances.
  • Once the game starts I won't answer any questions in thread. If you have any questions after we begin, please PM me.
  • Flavor will likely offer clues to role and/or alignment, so be VERY careful about making flavor arguments or claiming your flavor. If you really want to, you can, but don't say you weren't warned.

Hello I am awkward and new.

You're welcome to play, but please don't judge mafia as a game just based on this game, as there's likely to be stuff happening that's very much not a standard mafia game. If you have even a little bit of fun playing this, join a more normal Mini game afterwards!

Skyrim has seen better days. A brutal civil war rages across the province, Thalmor agents skulk about in the dark, kidnapping and torturing those with the audacity to worship Talos, the One, the only mortal ever to ascend to godhood, according to his worshipers. Dark beasts, vile agents of darkness, stalk the night, waiting to prey on the weak, the unwary, and the infirm. There have even been rumors of dragons. Rumors that have gone without corroboration. Until now, that is.



A dragon with wings of black has razed the town of Helgen. Few survived, and rumors spin that this dragon is Alduin, the World-Eater, firstborn of Akatosh, devourer of souls, and harbinger of the end-times. How can the people of Skyrim, mere mortals, ever hope to defeat such a fell foe? If they are to do so, to stop the return of the dragons and prevent their world from being reduced to smoldering ashes, they must unite. However, whence can come this unity when brother fights brother and all suspect their neighbor of being a creature of darkness? Only the people of Skyrim can answer this question, and must do so quickly, as the beasts have claimed their first victim: a horsethief who happened to be in the wrong place, at the wrong time, the last of many such misfortunes.

Lokir of Rorikstead, Horsethief has been brutally murdered N0


People of Skyrim, unite! Keep your blades close at hand and take heart, for you are all that stand between Tamriel and certain doom.

It is a cold day in Riverwood today. Helgen has been sacked, by a dragon, no less, and tensions run high. Rumors swirl that the dragons are not the only things to fear, and the people of the town eye each other with suspicion. As the sun sinks lower in the sky, these whispers grow to a fever pitch, and wild accusations are thrown about.
"Witch!"
"Daedra worshipper!"
"Vampire!"
At the center of the whirlwind, a woman. The mob grows insatiable, lusty for blood. They drag her, despite the protestations of her brother and suitors, to an improvised headman's block beside Gerdur's mill. She looks towards the west, and as the sun sets behind the barrow, draws one final breath.
The headsman's axe falls, her body goes limp, and there is silence. As the last rays of daylight fade, wolves can be heard, howling in the distance.



Camilla Valerius, Vanilla Town has been executed Day 1.

It is now Night 1. You have 24 hours to get your actions to me, but I will start the next day early if I get all the actions sooner than that.

Also, an announcement: I am bad at proofreading, so some PMs were sent out incomplete. This should be remedied now.

The sun comes up over Skyrim, the mood of the morning bleak and somber after the chilling events of yesterday. However, in the night, even more have joined the ranks of the dead.

Outside the gates of Whiterun, you find the body of a Khajiit, dressed in monk robes and brutally slain. On his person, you find a few scraps of food, some coin, and a note that reads:
"M'aiq knows much, and tells some. M'aiq knows many things others do not."



fiery_valkyrie, M'aiq the Liar, Vanilla Town, has been killed N1

However, the Khajiit is not the only body to be found this morning. There is also a man, dressed in black leather and bedecked in ring, amulets, and other valuables, likely ill-gotten.


Asiina, Delvin Mallory, Town Watcher has been killed N1

Whiterun
Tensions are running high. Your murder of an innocent in Riverwood, followed by the brutal murders of two more of you number in the night have people on edge. The sun once again begins to set, and your attention seizes on a robed woman.
"To the Gildergreen with her!"
"String her up!"
"WITCH!"
Dragged to the wilting tree in the center of the city, the woman looks on in disbelief as a noose is readied.
"By Kynareth, if I am to die, I die on my own terms!"
She shoves away from the people restraining her, and in a single motion, produces a wicked-looking knife from within her robes, and plunges into her chest. Blood splatters onto the ground and the roots of the Gildergreen and stains her robes deep crimson as she draws a final ragged breath and the life fades from her eyes. The sun sets, and a chill wind blows from the north.

Solitude
The sun rises over the Sea of Ghosts. The clear morning air is still for a few moments, until shouts can be heard from the Bard's College.
"Guards! GUARDS! Someone's been murdered!"
The Solitude guard rushes to the college quarters, and there finds the body of a Nord. His skin and clothes are scorched, and a wicked knife pierces his chest. However, something is not right about his corpse. His skin is sloughing off into an ashen dust, and his glazed eyes are golden. The blood on his clothes and sheets smells rank, rotten, and his mouth is tightened into a rictus grin, revealing a set of sharp fangs.


EccoRaven, Jorn, Vampire Bard, has been killed Night 2.

Day 3 begins.

Dawnstar
The wind is cold and the gray clouds spit flurries of snow. The townpeople are gathered, and a panic has set in. No one can be trusted, and a blizzard of accusations quickly forms. However, one of your number does not speak. She is an outsider, not a resident of the city, and someone who is very rarely, if ever, here. The mob quickly turns on her, and she is brought to the end of the longest dock. Stones are lashed to her feet, and her hands bound.
"Any final words?"
"I am not your enemy, people of Skyrim. We share a common goal, the elimination of the dark beasts of the night! How can you suspect me? I have devoted my life to this cause!"
Her words, however, fall on deaf ears. She is pushed from the end of the pier.
"If the Eight find her innocent, she will rise to the surface."
She does not.

The sun shines brightly this morning, and the air is somehow less hopeless than it has been for the last few days. However, not everyone has made it through the night. Near Jorrvaskr lies the corpse of one of the Companions. Not just any companion, either, but a member of the Circle. You start to mourn and to shed tears, but then look closer at his body, and see that it is covered with patches of fur, and that his teeth and nails are longer and sharper than they should be.


Anonymous Narcotics, Skjor, Werewolf, has been slain Night 3.

Outside the gates of the city, there is a another body. Lying next to a cart with a massive crate in it is a crazed-looking man, wearing the garb of a fool. His red and black clothing is stained with blood, and his mouth is stretched into a horrifying grin.


Capitalist Pig, Cicero, Jester Lynchbomb, has been slain Night 3.

A furious crowd gathers in the Sleeping Giant. Each of the last few days, an innocent citizen of Skyrim has been executed, and your numbers are dwindling. Suddenly, someone shouts from one of the side rooms. They return to the main chamber carrying a sheathed blade.
"They was hidden behind one of the bunks!"
The mob gathers around, and it is unsheathed, revealing an ornately wrought katana, flecked with blood. All eyes turn to the owner, for it was her room where the blade was found.
"I've used that blade, but it was to kill the beasts who are trying to kill us!"
However, no one believes her. She is brought out to the headsman's block where Camilla was executed just a few short days ago, and the swift swing of a heavy axe ends her life.

The Jarl has ordered a search be made for the culprit, and you have tracked them to a small cave outside of the city. You enter, torches and axes in hand, and descend to the depths.
