Welcome to Sid Mafiaís Alpha Centauri, a mafia game for 15 players based on the greatest PC game in history.

All glory to MaliciousOnion for this.

SMAC: Outline
In the late 21st century, the UN spaceship Unity carries humanityís last chance of survival after decades of strife on Earth. In typical sci-fi fashion the ship malfunctions and wakes everyone early, contact with Earth is lost and hey look, the captain is assassinated! Seven factions emerge, each led by a charismatic trope leader with a particular agenda. Each faction commandeers a landing pod, and weíre set for Civ II in space.

Unlike Civ, this Planet has a child-like level of sentience derived from a vast organic neural net and hates other sentient thought so much that it sends psychic-demon worms to horrifically murder the colonists

This game will feature two game concepts from SMAC which I am adapting for a mafia context.

Secret Projects
Where the Civ series has Wonders, Alpha Centauri has ďSecret Projects,Ē resource intensive constructions that give a major or minor boon to your faction. Depending on the Project, benefits might be laughably minor (+2 minerals from The Bulk Matter Transmitter) to the possibly game-breaking (permanent population boom PLUS negatives removed from powerful social engineering choices from The Cloning Vats).

In this game, each player has a Secret Project which they can activate by fulfilling a condition in their role PM. If your SP activates you will be notified of its effects by PM. The thread will be notified of its activation but not its effects. Your SP will almost certainly help you or your team.

Psi Combat
In SMAC, certain units engage in Psi Combat, which ignores traditional weapon and armour values in favour of discipline and initiative.

In this game Psi Combat is possible and will be resolved in favour of the attacker (i.e. the player which PMs me first). Think of it as just a different way of murdering someone, against which there may be different protections.

Should I Play?
New players are certainly welcome. Experience may not count for much in this setup. Non-Auspol players are also welcome, but should be aware that days will be on AEST time and the thread is likely to move fairly quickly.

Rules
- Days are 12 hours long, from 9am AEST to 9pm AEST. This should give me time to have basic flips while youíre still awake.
- Donít intentionally post after hammer. I intend to keep the thread open at night after the flip so you can discuss the day's events.
- Hangings will be majority of players to hammer (days can end in a no hang).
- Alpha Centauri has seven factions. Donít worry, this game does not.
- This game is role heavy, meaning that vanilla characters are certainly present. But you all have a Secret Project, expect the unexpected!
- Non-town players may have been given fake flavour.
- No editing posts. Make a clarification in a new post.
- Keep deadposts to a minimum.
- Donít directly quote mod PMs. If you have any questions throughout the game, PM me.
- You can talk about your SP in thread, but itís probably not a good idea.
- Most importantly, have fun. Even I don't know how this is going to work out so try and relax and enjoy the ride

Interesting.

I'm wondering if this means there will just be double the amount of shitposting, or if people will cut back on day chat since theyve done most of their speculation the night before.

I knew the consequences. But... I cannot apologize. I will not. If I should apologize or feel regret, then everything would have been for naught. I will never defeat the scum if I do.

Monday start works for me. If we can get one more player that would be good, I feel like all of the elements will still work with 12.
