This is an open-setup game of Mafia for 10 players. There is not a traditional scum team. Days are 48 Hours, Nights are 24. Vote is plurality.

Standard Rules Apply

Town Roles

quote:

You are an FBI Psychologist.
Cult Investigator/Mason

You and your partner recently investigated a cult involved mass-suicide in Arkansas. The case has taken you to Pinetop. A small, quaint community hidden in a densely wooded area of Central Oregon. You have particularly been enlisted in this case due to your profiling ability.

You may choose a target at night to detain for psychological evaluation. You learn if they are Cult affiliated. You are also in a masonry with [Player Name].

You win when all threats to town have been eliminated.

quote:

You are an FBI Agent.
Serial Killer Investigator/Mason

You and your partner recently investigated a cult involved mass-suicide in Arkansas. The case has taken you to Pinetop. A small, quaint community hidden in a densely wooded area of Central Oregon. The cult wasn't the only threat that came to Pinetop, a Serial Killer is in the midst and it's up to you to stop them.

Each night you may choose a player to investigate, you will receive a result of Serial Killer or Not Serial Killer. You are also in a masonry with [Player Name].

You win when all threats to town have been eliminated.

quote:

You are The Log Lady.
Watcher/1-Shot Lie Detector

People think you strange, but you know things, you see things. You know about what's out in those woods.

Each night you may choose to player to watch learning anyone who targeted them. You also have a 1-Shot lie detector that will allow you to learn if a player's statement is true or false.

You win when all threats to town have been eliminated.

quote:

You are Vanilla Town.

You are a resident of Pinetop, a lovely little town consisting of kind-hearted, trusting people.

Your strength lies in your vote.

You win when all threats to town have been eliminated.

Cult

quote:

You are the Cult Leader.
Cult Recruiter/1-Shot Investigation Immune/1-Shot Bulletproof

You arrived in Pinetop a little over a year ago. A small, quaint community hidden in a densely wooded area in Central Oregon. You never had any trouble persuading people to do your bidding, and this small town would prove no different. You exploit the weaknesses of others effortlessly, moulding their wills like putty.

Once per night, you may choose to recruit a player to join your cult. In addition to your recruiting ability, you are passively 1-Shot Bulletproof and 1-Shot Investigation proof. You will not be notified when your immunities expire. If you recruit the Serial Killer you will die. If you die your cult dies.

You win when the cult comprises more than half of total players and no threats to it remain in the game.

quote:

You are now a Cultist.

[Player Name] is ceaselessly entertaining. Everything about them is interesting, and they seem to understand you on an intrinsic level. They fill a void you did not know you had. You can't imagine life without them. You'll live and die for this person, you are now under their command.

You lose your activated abilities. You win with the cultist win condition now. If the Cult Leader dies, you die.

You win when the cult comprises half of the town and no threats to it remain in the game.

Third-Party

quote:

You are a Serial Killer.
Factional Night Kill

When you still retained your sanity, you were a member of a cult. Once an upstanding member of society, your mind was warped against your will by a silver-tongued merchant of false promises. You alone survived a mass-suicide, but were left irreparably changed. You don't remember who the cult leader was, but you've tracked the cult here to Pinetop leaving a trail of bodies on your path for vengeance.

You have a factional night-kill. Once per night, you may PM me the name of a player to kill.

You win if you are the only player left alive or nothing can prevent it.

Role Clarifications
  • Cult Leader Investigation Immunity will return a result that does not give away the Cult Leader's alignment. This has effect on Cult Investigator, Lie Detector.
  • Cult Investigator is one-shot bullet proof, but if they recruit the Serial Killer, they will die regardless of BP status.
  • The Serial Killer will not convert if recruited.

Two things before I do or do not sign up:

What's a 'factional' night kill?

If the cult leader is 1-shot investigation immune, but the open setup contains no other method to prevent an investigation, isn't that the same as saying "this is the cult leader!" which is even worse than non being investigation immune?

It's just the standard serial killer kill ability.

The investigation immune will return a 'not cult result'. The other investigation abilities won't affect it(watcher, sk investigation). Lie detector would however be negated in this instance. I'll clean it up for clarification, but I'll handle the result in such away that alignment is not discerned as a result.

So if the lie detector asked the cult recruiter "Are you the cult recruiter?" and the cult recruiter answered "no", it would return true if the one-shot immunity had not yet been used?

If the cult-recruiter recruits the SK while he still has the 1-shot bulletproof, does he outright die or does the 1-shot get spent and the SK not recruited?

He'd die. BP will protect him from being killed by SK night kill once, but won't save him from recruiting the SK.

Just to be clear, the SK doesn't get recruited and therefore immediately die the recruiter tries to recruit him right?

Also, does the FBI Psychologist get told if a person is a cultist if they target them on the same night they are recruited?

If the recruiter tries to recruit the SK, they will die and flip on the next day with any cultists. If the SK tries to kill the recruiter it will fail the first time.

I was asking if the SK gets recruited into the cult when targeted for recruitment, therefore immediately giving town the victory? Because you never state he has recruitment immunity, only that he kills the cult leader when recruited.

Ah my bad, no the SK doesn't convert. He just becomes the game main bad guy at that point.

Re-confirming this, but for realsies this time.

In other news, I propose the following; that we should only hunt cult until the cult leader is dead. The serial killer investigator should keep their results private until the cult leader is dead, as it is my calculation that having the serial killer alive and assuming he/she is safe will be the best, as it adds an ally-of-convenience against the cult. After all, it becomes increasingly hard to lynch the cult leader as the game goes on, so we need the serial killer to kill them during the night if we fail to correctly identify the leader. The serial killer investigator keeps results private, including from his or her mason buddy, in case said mason buddy is recruited.

Thoughts?

Actually, now that I give it second thought, isn't that bad? The serial killer would, optimally, want the cultist leader to recruit a good number of people before killing them (or, getting lucky an being recruited). In the mean time they would focus on killing town member unti probably night 3, at which point they start hunting cultists/the cult leader.

Though I guess we also don't know if the cult starts with any regular members? I would assume not, but the OP isn't clear about that.
