Hello! And welcome to Whose Lynch Is It Anyway, the game where everything's made up, and the roles don't matter. That's right, the roles are more vanilla than a Young LNP member eating an ice cream sandwich.

Our next game we're about to start is Mafia Quirks. This game is for 7 or more Auspol players who will be signing up below. There's no real upper limit, just so long as we get a nice odd number, and we give everybody about a week to cool down from the last game. In the meantime, we'll also need some suggestions from the audience. Can everyone throw out their ideas for amusing post restrictions, please?

Suggestion time is over! The game will open on Invasion Day.

OPENING TIME: around 8 AM Brisbane time
CLOSING TIME: 10 PM Brisbane time

In case this will influence your final decision, I already decided your role will be Sans and you have to have some kind of bad pun or bad joke in every post.

What I'm thinking is, everyone will have their one "default" PR that's their role. But if you sign up for the gamephase at the start of each day, you can play a minigame where you have to go by that game's rules instead of your normal rules. Like the alphabet game, or the question game, etc. If you win the game, (decided totally by subjective mod decision), you get granted the ability to inflict a new temporary PR of your choice on someone who sat out.

You can't combine me, beet, gaspy, soag or occasionally toml with playing nice. The PRs would cancel out.

I've just finished crafting a game that will be my most ambitious themed project yet. It needs fine tuning and I'll probably launch it after this one. Not sure if I'll play this one though.

I would like to play. I just caught up on TOML & SK's mafia and I would've been a paranoid, anxious wreck by the end of it if I'd been playing town, great read though.

PRs
- can't use names when referring to other players, can get creative though
- compulsive liar. Doesn't apply to alignments if scum.
- forgetful, can only quote from the current + previous page
- post like you're writing in your personal diary
- post in txt shorthand, as close to a 15 year old as possible.
- post like you're in a soap opera

I was thinking how teachers complain about kids writing essays with it. But I also like posting as a grumpy old man telling people to get off the lawn and how things were so much better back in the day.
