Are you an old player looking for a way back into the mafia community? Are you a serious person that wants to play a serious game?

Welcome to Dr. Winslow's serious game for serious folk


This is a flavourless, open setup game.

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.

Setup
For this game we will be playing a Matrix6 set up. This is a setup that is designed to give the scum and town factions a roughly equal chance to win. I will roll a genuine six sided die and based on the result we will use one of the following set ups:



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.

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.

The Jailor adheres to all applicable rules above but the person they use their action on will be protected for the night. The Jailor can't Jail themselves. If the Jailor and the RoleBlocker target each other then the Jailor will be Roleblocked and the Roleblocker will not. This only matters if the Roleblocker is also submitting the scum 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.

The only reason priority matters is if the Jailor and the Roleblocker target each other the Roleblocker wins.


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 put me down as an alternate though, as I hope to get in some sort of game soonish, and I definitely don't want to start back up in Mafia trying to balance two games.

Before this game starts just wanna say that I am pretty excited to get back into mafia. I played a decent number of games back in the day and the only time I was anything other than vanilla town was when I was the world's worst mason. Maybe I'll get some flavor this time, maybe I'll actually do something worthwhile.

It's probably for the best if I don't.
