Ladies and Djentleman, Welcome...



...to a game of mafia for 15 players based on the musical stylings of progressive metal giants
Periphery!



Everyone will receive a song as their role, which will be played in the event of their (un)fortunate demise.

Note: No knowledge or appreciation of any of the material will be necessary for the game. You can totally ignore any of the song links and be perfectly fine, they're mostly for my own amusement!

Also the game is :siren: Role Madness :siren: so everyone will have a role! It should still be roughly balanced despite all the roles.

Rules:
- Majority lynches, not plurality, which could result in a no-lynch day
- Do not edit your posts
- Do not break any of the Standard Mafia Rules. (Quoting mod PMs, faking day actions, etc)
- The SA Forum Rules still (mostly) apply. Remember that.
- Days will be approximately 72 hours for the first 2 days, and 48 hours thereafter, ending at 10:00pm EST (Saturday/Sunday I will count as one 24 hour period.)
- Any posts after the deadline, as measured by SA Forum Time, will not be counted
- Nights should be no more than 24 hours. I will try my best to get through nights as quickly as possible; as soon as I resolve all night actions, I will start the following day.
- Try not to post after the hammer. I can check the thread relatively often, and if one happens early I can even check at work, but I cannot be on 24/7. Please try and respect that.
- To format your vote, type ""##vote targetName"" in bold ( [ b ] to bold, without the spaces, [ /b ] to close tags).
- You may use ""##unvote"" (again in bold) if you wish to remove your current vote without yet placing it on someone else.
- Try to be active, or you may be prodded. After 48 hours of no posting, don't be surprised if you're replaced.
- DO NOT EDIT YOUR POSTS
- Flavor is based on the lyrics of the song you are assigned, so consequently flavor is at least loosely associated to your role. Reveal at your own peril.
- It's a game, but it's a game about lying and deception. Relax, have fun, and don't get butthurt!

:siren:There will likely be roles, or variations of roles, in this game that you may not have seen before. If you don't like those, it's possible you may not like this game. Check out my past games Lizards, Breakfast Food Showdown, Goonfest!, and Goonfest 2! for an idea of past roles and hyjinx. While there may be some unconventional roles, newbies are still welcome to play!:siren:

:siren: Because Ernie is an honest gentleman and scholar (and also kind of a dingus), in the interest of fairness he has requested he be killed due to accidentally posting about this game in another game. :siren:

"Life is ruthless and shot full of pain,
It lifts you up, leaves you out in the rain, and it hurts just to know that you're not coming back again.
I will miss you my friend!
Memories like a slug to the brain, paint the walls that with a love that will stain the darkest of nights!
You left to join with the stars and I cannot shake this off my chest.

Suddenly I can feel the connection between dimension ties.
Open gut on the floor.
Trembling down to the core.
What is this?"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dz3E_JNW4oU

Ernie., Town-Aligned Forensic Amateur, has been modkilled Night 3!

Ability: You’ve suffered a horrible loss of a friend, and have suddenly gained insight into death. Each night, you may target the corpse of a dead player. You will receive a list of actions performed against the player throughout the course of the game, however you will not know who performed these actions.

Ability: The voices in your head cause you to remember everything you see. You can use this knowledge to copy the abilities of fallen players. Each night, you can copy the ability of a player who has died, using their night action as you wish. Each dead person’s action can only be copied once. There are some abilities you cannot copy (including, but not limited to, killing roles), though some roles may be able to be partially copied. Ask me for clarification if needed.

CapitalistPig, Town-Aligned Hammerer, has been ripped apart Night 4!

Ability: You want to show off, you want to be remembered, you want to be seen as a God. Once during the game, you may kill a player who has at least half the votes necessary to be lynched (i.e. with 11 players, 6 votes are necessary for a lynch. If someone gets 3 votes, you may hammer them). Use your ability by using ##hammer in thread (and please shoot me a PM so I know I need to take action). You must use this ability within the first 3 game days, or it will be forfeit. Your hammer ends the day when used.

Win Condition: You win once all threats to the town have been eliminated.

AnonymousNarcostics, Town-aligned Jailer and MiltonSlaveMasta, Town-aligned Motivator have been end-gamed!

Thank you all for playing!! This game was experimental in nature given the number of non-town (5/15), however the alternating kills from the SKs + number of town PRs, investigative or otherwise, shifted the balance such that it was roughly even in terms of variance. The theme of the game was a rough duality, in that most of the roles were part of a pair of sorts:

Even/Odd-Night SKs
Tracker Masons/Watcher
Messenger/Seer (both sending anonymous messages)
Copycat/Forensic Amateur (both able to visit dead people)
Empowerer/Motivator (both allowing other folks to do things they normally shouldn't)
Puppet Master/Jailer (both roleblocks + one additional trait)
Ninjuggernaut (dual with itself - able to either bypass the 2 BPs/Jailer or ignore the Trackers/Forensic Amateur, but not both)

Really the only one that didn't fit the above was Hammerer, and I wanted the Town to have 1 killing ability that wouldn't automatically put them in a bad position - had it been a vig and the day didn't end, the variance would have been too great IMO.

As a mod this was an incredibly fun setup to watch. I welcome feedback on the setup, and I hope you all enjoyed playing :)

Also because I hadn't said it before, I wanted to apologize for Somber. The hammer on Somber on D1 was actually not legitimate, as Good Sir pointed out to me before I had to replace him.

One of the votes on Somber was from this post:

Good Sir posted:

WHAT ARE YOU SO PARANOID AND WEIRD ABOUT, HUH? HUUUUUHHHHHHHH?

##vote MC

Someone aliased MC -> Somber and I didn't even think to check that before posting it. I don't think it would have actually had an appreciable difference on the game because I think he would have gotten 4 votes anyway, but whoever did that, seriously shame on you because that's hosed up.
