Breathe a little deeper, should you need to come undone



Soiled Meat


Humanity is finished.
A small group of survivors band together to make their way to one of the last bastions of man in hopes of finding solace at the end of the world.

All the while hunted by the monsters in the dark...
and in their midst..



Welcome to The Last Bastion, an open-setup paranoia-style mafia variant for 30 players!

I have endeavored to designed a large scale game that can be played quickly, with a simplistic rule-set, that does away with a large number of the standard pitfalls mafia games fall into.
This variant is designed for maximum inter-player paranoia, with constantly shifting allegiances, that should hopefully be engaging to ALL players.

Does the useful player survive?
What secrets are spilled when a knife is to your throat?
Where does your allegiance lie?

Lets find out together!




26x Skittish Town
1x Zombie (Cult Recruiter)
1x Vampire (Cult Recruiter)
1x Werewolf (Cult Recruiter)
1x The Cure



- No Voting.
- 24 hour days. 12 hour nights.

Day Phase
- Once per day 3x Skittish Town will be randomly granted the ability to ##EXECUTE a target. This is a public action in thread, and everybody will know who has been chosen.
- The day will end once all 3 shots have been taken, or deadline hits. Wasted shots will NOT carry over, but players are free to withhold the kill if they chose to.
- ONLY Skittish Town will be selected for the execute ability.
- Recruiters + Cult members are INELIGIBLE.
- Town can be selected MULTIPLE times to gain the execute ability.

Night Phase
- At night each Recruiter will chose a victim to ##BITE, infecting them and joining their respective Cultdocs
- Each Recruiter has special rules about who they can and cannot infect.
- If a Recruiter bites the wrong person, they die.

The Infected
- Infected individuals may potentially be biten multiple times, gaining access to multiple Cultdocs.
- Infected individuals must choose where their loyalty lie and may choose to out their Recruiter publicly, other Cultists, etc.
- You are no longer eligible to be chosen to recieve the ##EXECUTE ability

The Cure
- If this player can survive the journey to the stronghold, town wins regardless of how many infected are still in play.
- If this player is killed by a Recruiter, they will be granted a boon.
- The Cure will only flip as Skittish Town, so it is wise not to draw attention to yourself.

questions
Town can be selected MULTIPLE times to gain the execute ability. <- does this mean multiple times in one day? or does this just mean multiple times over the course of the game?
they will be granted a boon. <- what is a boon? Is it a mafia term or does it simply mean a secret power/reward? or does it mean an extra 'life'?

Multiple times over the course of the game. I am an unbiased mod, so you have my guarantee that it will be truly random.

A boon is a reward in this context.
What the reward is... Well.. maybe we'll find out later!~

Also welcome! A fresh face I haven't seen before!

Is this supposed to be the only thing we know about wincons? It does still sound fun to just have everybody biting each other to turn into zombie werevampires for the hell of it, but I am mildly curious.

Yes that is intentionally the only public wincon made available.
Town win if The Cure makes it to the bastion.

There are multiple outcomes in this setup, which is what I designed it to do, so the remaining wincons are not made public.
Things could go hilariously tits up for one group or another, but that's part of the fun!

I would love to talk with everyone at length after the game about my design intentions, what worked, what didn't, etc.
I'm hoping that even though this is primarily a 'vanilla' setup, that regardless of your designated role, it is enjoyable for everybody.

Like I know I am a jackass in most games, but I have sat down and attempted to create a 'pure' variant of the mafia setup.

I think it will play quite well, and be a very very fun read once people start pointing the execute ability in peoples faces.

You can't claim Cop or Doc when the gun is pointed at you, so do you believe that persons claim? Are they useful to the group? Are they town? Are they a monster? Are they infected? Ohhhh they got the execute ability yesterday, but what if they were infected last night... Who do you trust? Where do your loyalties lie? Should you out the recruiter that brought you into your fold, even though you're already infected by another? Or do you bide your time and see what happens..

The only person you can really trust is yourself..

And that's why I've dubbed this the PARANOIA variant.
