Maverick physicist Polton Williams has invited you to attend the inaugural demonstration of his Y-Scope, a device intended to push the envelope of scientific exploration by allowing us sight into a hidden dimension layered within our own reality.

This is a closed-setup game of MAFIA for 13 players.

Why no one chose Mark Moran is beyond me. I will be posting in character throughout this whole game. My character will be that of a lone, grumpy, potato farmer, on a bender.

I don't think anyone will be able to tell that I'm posting in character.

Eldritch Tales, a game of Mafia: Journey into Dimension Y

quote:

You arrive at Polton Williams' private laboratory at dusk. The lab is situated on the outskirts of the city. High on a hill where Polton wouldn't disturb anyone with his experiments, nor would he be interrupted. The lab had been converted to its present use, having originally been a lighthouse that overlooked the coast. Pulling up, warm lights blaze from a new addition, built in homey, Tudor-revival style. Undoubtedly, the living quarters for the physicist.

Williams himself greeted you as your arrived at his doorstep. He is tall and thin, wearing owlish glasses, a red bow tie and a tweed jacket. Those of you who know him personally have not seen him in a while and are surprised to see that he has aged considerably. His hair, once salt and pepper gray, is now snowy white, and dark circles frame his tired eyes. Still, he seems chipper, and greets each arrival with evident excitement.

Acquaintances new and old, you gathered at the rear of Williams' lab where he stood by a large and complicated machine comprised of twisting bulbs, strange gears, and odd lenses.

"Tonight, we take a giant step to unraveling the secrets of our world and the next. I'd like to propose a toast to the continued advancement of humankind and to all of you for taking the step with me. Without any further delay... I present to you... THE Y-SCOPE!"

When his small speech is done, he madly begins to wind the gears on the device. He darts to the other side of the lab flipping levers and switches on strange electrical equipment. The bulbs of the device begin to crackle with electricity, and a kaleidoscope of color fills the room, then suddenly... an explosion.

A rift to somewhere incomprehensibly horrible opens up where the telescope once stood and a writhing mass of fanged tentacles reached out and devoured most of Polton before disappearing altogether. Severed legs are all that remain of the physicist.

Polton Williams, Earth-Aligned Physicist has died Night 0!
PMs are out and the game has begun. let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
