Welcome to Three Axis Mafia

This is a game of mafia for 14 players. There is a unique gimmick here: the game is not divided simply into two teams of town (uninformed majority) and scum (informed minority), but is also divided further into two teams of red and blue alignments. Everyone starts out the game with two win conditions that are not mutually exclusive, and fulfilling any of your win conditions counts as winning the game.

This sort of setup was a big hit in Two Axis Mafia and Two Axis Mafia V2 so we're going to try running it with more players.

Sample win conditions:
Being Scum-aligned and there being no town players left alive in the game.
Being town-aligned and there being no scum players left alive in the game.
Being red-aligned and there being no blue players left alive in the game.
Being blue-aligned and there being no red players left alive in the game.

When a win condition is fulfilled, play does not stop. The game will continue for as long as any alive player still has one or more unfulfilled win conditions that are feasable for them to fulfill. You technically only need to fulfill one win condition to be listed as a winner, but if you can fulfill two (or three!) then you'll be an Ultra Special Snowflake.

Example: Town has succeeded in eliminating all scum-aligned players, securing a Town victory. But of the five remaining town players, three are red-aligned and two are blue-aligned. While all of them have won based on Town alignment, the five players will continue voting each other out in an attempt to secure a double-win based on Town AND Color alignment.

In the event of multiple people qualifying for Ultra Special Snowflake status, whoever survived longest will be the Ultra Special Snowflake. If there is still a tie, there will be a popularity vote to resolve Ultra Special Snowflake status.

OTHER SPECIAL THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT

Scum do not reveal their color when they flip, only their alignment. You're going to have to rely on a power role if you want to know what they flipped as.
If there's no majority agreement among scum as to who they want to nightkill, the choice will be made randomly as to who gets to pick. To encourage unity, a message will be posted in thread the next day if there was a disagreement.
Oracle(s) are not hidden like they were in Two Axis V1 and V2. I like the idea, but in a game where everyone's got a special role I was having trouble making it work.
The name of this game is 'Three Axis Mafia', but I've only mentioned two alignment axises (axii?) here.
If there's some sort of stalemate or tie, there'll be a popularity vote by dead players to resolve it, like they do in reality TV.

If we're down to just two people then it'll be a popularity vote, actually.

Hello everyone!

I am the oracle, and I can confirm that this game is a little more complicated!

This time, not joking, all but two players can win if one of the scum claims. (The two scum that claim will not win)

To show that I really am the oracle, I know that there are three scum.

I don't understand, is it one claiming scum or two claiming scum.

Sorry, the two that DON'T claim will not win.

We can work it so one of the scum wins, but the other two will have to lose.
