Welcome to Flavorful Mafia, a closed-setup, moderate-flavor game for 18 players. This was an initially-whimsical concept that kinda spun out of control at some point along the design curve and became what it is now. Please note that the setup is fairly experimental, so if you prefer standard games this one may not be for you. You'll be paired with another player in the game in an unconfirmed masonry. Some of you will just be masons. Some of you will be masons with a power role. It may not be in your best interest to claim your flavor or role!

The Standard Mafia Rules apply to this game. In addition, Podima's Anti-Lurker Rules will be in effect:

Anti-Lurker Rules posted:

  • If you don't make at least 10 posts in a game day, you will be permanently ON NOTICE for the rest of the game.
  • If you are already ON NOTICE and do not make at least 10 posts on any subsequent game day, you will be FREELY EXECUTABLE the next day. (Your execution will not end the day!)
  • The above rules will be disregarded if hammer happens more than 2 hours before deadline or the game day lasts less than 24 hours (or otherwise based on mod judgment), and will hopefully only be in effect for the first 2-3 game days if you're all good people.

Finally, I encourage everyone to keep in mind that we're ultimately here to play a silly Internet party game. That said, if you feel that you can't deal with another player on a personal level, I encourage you to make that decision before the game starts to avoid replacements down the road. Remember, you'll be interacting both in thread and in a masonry.

screwed up the "post votecounts whenever in the last hour" logic in votefinder so I get to do this manually

Tired Moritz, Butter, Town Mason was deemed too bland D1

Night 1 begins.

At this point, I'd like to ask you all to discuss in your masonries whether you'd rather stick with Google Docs or move to Discord for the remainder of the game, as far as team-based communication. peramene helped me get a Discord server set up so that that can be used for communication. Please do not feel obligated, but if your masonry feels like they'd like to move there, you're more than welcome to do so.

The hard deadline for the night is in 48 hours, but if all actions are in before then I will be starting Day 2 early. Weekends are never fun, so this, I think, is the best way to avoid having to deal with them.

As the flavors regrouped for another day and another vote, their numbers had been trimmed - not one, but two of their number were missing this morning.

Night 3 begins. It's another weekend, so we're going with a long night, but the earlier you can get actions in the better off you'll be because Day 4 will likely be at least partly over a long weekend for US goons. Actions have a hard deadline of Sunday, 10pm Eastern.

An administrative note: I've gone back and edited the rest of the nightkill flavor. This should not be construed as anything other than me adding some flavor to the game, because "died" was so boring. Any nightkill role in the game did not come with specific kill flavors.

Day 4 begins.

ok so this was a bit of a weird setup

a few things that could have gone better:

1) the scum team was way too weak. Probably needed to have a full-scum masonry with a power role or something to balance this one.
2) I wasn't really expecting to have the SK start nailing kills all the way from N1 forward.
3) The doctor was really weak, and probably should have been replaced with a jailer - and also a mechanic to weaken roles if half of a power role masonry was targeted

I hope you all had a lot of fun despite the weird setup.

Did the scum team ever have a nightkill ability? I feel like they sorely needed it.

Scum inherited the NK after the vig masonry was gone.

This should have been done differently.

The concept is really good, scum just needed a way, via mechanics to set up Slam and get him killed quickly.

I don't know if a role exists in typical mafia, but a way for scum to force out false positives on something would have been good.

yeah, maybe just explaining the mechanic to the scum team before it happened may have solved this problem. Oh well!

Hi I just woke up wait they both had a kill each and that's how we had 3 one night? But they were also flavour cops? :confuoot:

Kinda? Their kill only worked if they targeted "all surviving members of a masonry", which is where this came from:

The idea was that they would need to use flavorcop to match players to masonries.
