It's the night they've all been waiting for. Finally, recognition from not only their peers and the industry, but from the millions watching at home. This was their moment in the limelight, to have the whole world watching them. All they had to do was win an award. A favourite to win tonight, Robin Romaine sat on the edge of her seat as the category she was nominated for was announced. She saw her face come on the screen as the announcer read her name. As they opened the envelope she could barely breathe, and when they said her name, the cacophany of sound as everyone celebrated was replaced by a dull ringing in her ears. As she walked to the stage she thought "This is it, everything I've worked towards and all that I've had to do to get here. This is my moment."


Welcome to Awards Show Mafia, a game for 11 players.

This is a semi-open setup. There will be two scum and they will BOTH have a nightkill. When one scum dies they take their NK with them so you'll only have to contend with one.

All other aspects of the setup (power roles, if there's a 3P, etc) are unknown.

Flavour has nothing to do with alignment and will be RNG'd after you all choose your characters via their outfits.

Standard Mafia Rules

  • This is a fast paced game. Days will be 24-48 hours, Nights will be 12-24 hours. (Weekends count as 24 hours)
  • Lynch will be majority (days can end in a nolynch)
  • Thread will be closed at night
  • No fake day actions
  • No posting after hammer
  • No posting mod PMs
  • No editing posts
  • No outside communication unless your role says you're allowed
  • Don't lurk! People get one prod then a modkill. If you want a replacement please tell me before the beginning of D2. After that I modkill.
  • Once the game starts I won't answer any questions in thread. PM me if you have questions.

It's the night they've all been waiting for. Finally, recognition from not only their peers and the industry, but from the millions watching at home. This was their moment in the limelight, to have the whole world watching them. All they had to do was win an award. A favourite to win tonight, Robin Romaine sat on the edge of her seat as the category she was nominated for was announced. She saw her face come on the screen as the announcer read her name. As they opened the envelope she could barely breathe, and when they said her name, the cacophony of sound as everyone celebrated was replaced by a dull ringing in her ears. As she walked to the stage she thought "This is it, everything I've worked towards and all that I've had to do to get here. This is my moment."



Robin takes the trophy from the announcer and steps up to the microphone with tears in her eyes.

"Wow, I don't know what to say. I want to thank all the talented other nominees. This is as much your award as it is mine. I want to thank my family and friends, I couldn't have done this without them. My costars really allowed me to shine, and for that I'm grateful, but the person I have to thank most of all for getting me here is our lord and saviour Jesus Christ. There's nobody else to thank but Him. Thank you all!"

Robin steps back from the microphone as the music swells. Many clap, although there are quite a few who sit in silence in the crowd. Then, before she can be escorted off the stage, Robin falls to the floor. Her elegant gown pools around her. The announcer bends down to check on her as the audience rises to their feet.

"OH MY GOD SHE'S DEAD!" she screams.

Who could have done this? Who would have anything against dear, sweet, innocent Robin.


Robin Romaine, award winning actress, Town-aligned plot device died N0.

The crowd is on its feet. Security keeps people from rushing the stage as a paramedics rush to Robin's side. They try to revive her, but it is too late.

In the producer's booth the crew of the award's show looks to their manager for guidance.

"Should we cut the live feed?"

"No, stay on this." While definitely inappropriate for the 60+ year old demographic for these awards, this is the most interesting thing to ever happen on one of these shows, and she wasn't going to let them just run commercials until the 11 o'clock news got all the credit for the story.

Back on the stage, the mic of the presenters picks up the chatter of the paramedics. Most of it is just medical jargon, but one gives a knowing look to her partner. Her hushed whisper amplified throughout the room, "This was no accident."

Immediately there is panic among the crowd. Movie stars are pointing overly dramatic fingers at each other in an effort to find the culprit, and to take credit for finding them.

Finally a shrill voice manages to pierce above the din. "It was him!" She yells, pointing towards one of the lighting technicians who had come down from the catwalks to see the commotion. "I saw him earlier backstage, looking so mean and angry. He was obviously jealous of how beautiful and successful we all are. Especially dear, sweet Robin who had everything a man like him could ever dream of. He did it!"

The police, having finally been able to get through security around the event and navigate the barriers around the red carpet, arrive in the hall in time to hear this daring accusation. Immediately they arrest Malcolm and haul him off to jail.

The people around the woman congratulate her for finding the killer, as she shows off her most winning smile.


Hal Incandenza, Malcolm Briggs (Lighting Technician), vanilla town was arrested D1.

It is now N1. Actions quickly please. I'd like this night to be closer to 12 hours than 24.

Several officers remain behind to take the statements of the crowd, as the lighting technician is taken away. They are getting interviews from star after star, each taking as long as possible in the hopes that their statement is the one that's most useful.

A woman sits next to Robin's empty chair and sobs onto the tablecloth. There's a small crowd gathered around her trying to console her, but a man at the same table is looking increasingly impatient. It seems he's finally had enough, slamming his fists down on the table, he points at the crying woman.

"Oh stop crying! You didn't love her nearly as much as I did! Our love was special, our love was beautiful, and you were just pretending to love her to get her money! You couldn't understand her like I could!"

The woman looks up, eyes red and squinting in rage. "How dare you! She was my wife and you were just the annoying actor who she had to put up with for months of filming! I bet you did this, you were so jealous of us and our perfect love!"

"Haha!" The man cackles, "You're insane! She loved me more than you or we wouldn't have been able to be so in love on the screen! I bet you saw our true love shine through, the movie a testament to how we were meant to be together and you killed her for it tonight on stage, so I would see it! Oh woe is me!" The man strikes a dramatic pose, his hand on his forehead.

The commotion has drawn the attention of the police, who make their way over to the table. They listen to both sides for a moment, but unable to determine who is lying, they decide to take both in for questioning. Police cars drive the two audience members away.

With the arrest of the man and woman who were arguing, the atmosphere in the crowd changed. It seems that maybe they were wrong about the lighting technician if those two accused each other with such good reason. But could they have been wrong also and the killer was still among them?

The crowd's paranoia began as a small murmur, but with each passing moment it grew in volume and ferocity. It seems everyone seemed to have something against Robin they could be accused of and they were all getting in on the action.

All except a well put together woman in a blue suit, standing in the corner on her phone. She was ignoring the crowd entirely and was talking very fast to what sounded like her assistant.

"No, book all of the morning shows. We have to get out in front of this. There's a lot of money to be made here, we just have to sell it right. Have all the posters reprinted to feature Robin. Frame it as her last appearance and people will flock to the theatre in droves. Will make money off this terrible movie yet."

A small mousey girl gave out a gasp. While she had been standing there the whole time, only now did Nadine notice her. She looked nervous but tried to cover it up with savvy.

"Look kid, just trying to make the best out of a bad situ..." but she didn't get to finish her sentence as the girl screamed, pointing her finger at Nadine. The high pitched shriek carried over the crowd and soon the cops came rushing over to arrest Nadine and take her away.

The shrewed business woman was taken away by the police, but not everyone was happy about this. Nadine wasn't just an executive producer on Robin's movie, but on a lot of their movies, and just letting her be arrested would look very poorly on them when they try to make their own pet projects.

It doesn't take them long to shift the blame onto the mousy woman who pointed the finger at Nadine. Nobody is quite sure who she is or how she got into the show with that dull dress.

She tries to defend herself to the police, telling them that she is Robin's assistant and only wants what was best for Robin, but in stammering out her excuses she admits that Robin had fired her on the limo ride to the award ceremony. The outrage of the crowd brings the woman completely to tears, and the police take her away if only to protect her from the anger of the mob.

Meanwhile, seeing how much attention everyone is getting before they are arrested, an eager woman in a hideously loud yellow dress runs to the front of the stage yelling to the police.

"I did it! I killed Robin! It was me all the time take my picture for the magazines!"

One of the police officers on stage examining the spot where Robin's body was silently cuffs the woman and leads her away.

The cops decided that all of these stars were just truly awful terrible people, so they locked the doors of the theatre the award ceremony was in, and burnt it to the ground. That is until the corpse of Robin came back to life and murdered them all with her mind powers.

All of the people who were arrested were convicted of being vain assholes and disappeared into the penal system, never to be heard from again.

Counterpoint: When you said Kash was super obviously town and any idiot could see that.

I'm not going through 10 pages of posts to find it though.

That said, watching Kash and KK and Madman all fight was the best thing and I think it should be a rule that you're not allowed to play unless you all play together.
