Welcome aboard the USRSS Pequad.

The year is 2116. The United States Research Star Ship Pequad has been sent by the United States outer colonies on a research mission to the Delta-244 Star System about 36 light years from Earth. The nearby Biscotís Rest Space Station sent the Pequad out on this voyage after satellites in this system detected a strange object floating through space.

You are all scientists and crew members aboard the USRSS Pequod.

After to making the voyage and locating the unidentified object, the crew brought the object into the research bay.





The object seemed to be a large orb-like capsule containing an inky-black liquid unlike anything that you have ever seen before. Initial scans show a molecular structure foreign to your systems. It is impossible to tell whether the liquid is living or simply some odd anomaly. Days go by of observing the object. Your fellow crew is becoming increasingly agitated. Some murmurs can be heard by those that wish to jettison the object back into space. Others talk about selling on the black market. Perhaps it is a gift of the gods and we should drink it!

The lights go out. Emergency sirens blare through ship.

A voice can be heard over the shipís system, ďThis orb. This divine orb. God has bestowed upon us a means of ascendance. We shall not allow any to stand in the way of humanityís evolution.Ē
Another voice breaks in, ďHey! Arenít you supposed to be in the medical bay? You arenít authorized to-UGH.Ē
The original voice returns, ďOur captain, unfortunately, will not be joining the Ascendence. And sadly, neither will of all you.Ē

The comm system crackles to silence. The lights return. You all rush to the bridge to find -

Mordiceius, USRSS Crew-Aligned Captain, has been murdered N0.

Can you survive the Terror Aboard The USRSS Pequod?

The captain is dead. One of you runs and deactivates the emergency sirens. They will be no help and only serve as a distraction.

Just who or what is this "Ascendence"? Who was that voice over the comm? What do they want with this ship and that orb?

A sense of dread washes over you. You have spent the last four years with this international crew of scientists. Just what the hell is going on? They all seemed trustworthy enough over the last four years, but apparently it was all for show.

Your eyes drift over to a warning sign in the distance.



Yes, this ship needs to be cleansed. You never really considered yourself one to get your hands dirty, but if it is your life or theirs, you can do what must be done - to save yourself, to save the others, to save humanity.

Day 1 of the terror has begun.

I don't know if the nod to the possibility of alignment changing is confirming that as a mechanicn beyond the strong suggestion, but I imagine it's going to turn reads in their head in short order.

So confirming! Let's play some mafia.

I'm going to plot out my victory strategy now.

This is a 15 player game.

If there's alignment changing there is probably a cult or a recruiter with some limited ability with a vote control win condition.

There's almost guaranteed to be 1 3P

Probably a 2 to 4 player scum team. If it's less than 3 scum, possibility for 2 3P, a survivor alongside a recruiter mayhap.

No player reads yet obviously, but I'll be looking to see how things for within this initial speculation.

I second this notion. The OP says "minimal night abilities", but specifically nods towards alignment changing. On top of this, the flavor for the d0 stuff is very cult-ish to begin with. It reminds me of System Shock 2 in a way. I am curious about having both night kills and recruiting on the same scum team though... Could be pretty powerful.

If there isn't more than one team, at least. Could be a cult and a scum team? I don't know. I don't have much experience with mafia, but cults usually don't have much in the way of kill abilities, right?

It is important to mention that the OP also mentions that this is a very role-lite mafia game, so it can even be fathomed that there may be no way of recruiting people at all.

Likewise, there exists the slim possibility of there being more than one third-party team. Me thinks there is at least one serial killer role and even the possibility of a werewolf-like role where the player switches from third-party alignment to town/scum depending on whether it's day or night, but this is only an initial d0 guess.

Well, they did say there's no night phase, so I dunno how that would work, but it's an interesting idea nonetheless. Although given the apparent inability of town to defend himself, having two or more night kills might be a bit strong, as well?

I don't know. The whole "alignment changing" bit in the OP is just throwing me into a loop here.
