Welcome to Final Fantasy 4 Mafia.



This will be a mafia game for 26 players.

No job systems, no levels, no hp, nothing extra.

This will be a deviation from the formula for my FF games to this point in that there's no extra systems or mechanics at all.

There are three alignments in this game.

Scum has been provided with fakeclaims and a sample role pm.

As in previous incarnations there will be story events.

Once your choice has been made in story events your vote cannot change.
Please bold them to have them count.

2 per game day.

I don't consider story counters extra because they are integral to these games and also I have used story events in many games of mafia so they aren't abnormal.

Yeah, I don't kill people for being suspicious of me. I kill lurkers or power roles that will cause problems. Only killed you because you asked, several times.

Yeah, I don't remember when the last game we were town together was so I'm not sure if you really had me pegged or if you just always think I'm scum lately.

Intelligent and bright, they explored a world that was new and strange to them. They liked it, they thought - a whole world just for them! They were dimly aware that a God had created them, was watching them; they called out to him, thanking him in a chittering language, before running off.

Fear is the glue that holds society together. It's what makes people suppress their worst impulses. Fear is power.

And at the end of fear, oblivion.

As a just in case warning, I'm downstream of the current dam crisis in California. I wasn't required to evacuate, but I am just outside that area (in fact, my town took in a lot of evacuees). The crisis appears to have passed for now, but who knows when that might change. So if the news reports widescale flooding and I disappear midgame, those things are related.

OMFG yes in in in this is the best Final Fantasy

I'm gonna start setup speccing before the game even fuckin starts

I wonder what the 3rd alignment could be? I could see some weird character like Namingway being a 3P but I get the impression things are a bit more involved than just a oneoff 3P character.

there are a few solid 3p choices: if four fiends/golbez is the scum team, then zeromus would be a solid 3p, or vis versa. Since those two weren't working together. Or Kain could be 3p/survivor.

4 has a bunch of PCs for town, but it could also go the other route and have town be monsters/fiends/golbez and scum be heroes. With 26 players I could see the game going that route.

I could even see a true three alignment game. PCs/golbez + fiends/zeromus and monsters.

yeah, that could be it, it just seems weird to have Golbez on a fully separate team from Zeromus though. Unless Zeromus is some kind of cult leader or something.

I don't see this going the monster town route though when FF4 is so story heavy. Even minor characters like Yang's wife would be great inclusions.

(please give me Yang's wife if I cannot get Cecil, I wanna kill people with a spoon knife)

I guess I cut out the step where I meant to say Zeromus and Zemus could be different people also, if CPig felt like getting tricky.

You're right about monster town not being likely, but we're in crazy setup spec time and with this many players I could see it happening.

Yang's wife should be 3p SK.
