Been meaning on and off to start my own mafia game for a while. Finally getting to it. Found a sufficiently whimsical theme I like, that allowed me to use at least one of my role/action ideas.

Basic information

Days will be 48-72 hours in length. Nights will be 24 hours. These are flexible based on when I want to be up and doing things.
This is a not-entirely-vanilla game for 14-15 players. (read: 80+% of all actions that will happen will be common and normal. There will be some odd eggs in-between but nothing really game-changing)
Weíll be using Discord to manage everything, so please make sure you have access to that for the game.
Alignment changes are not part of this game.

General Mafia Rules stolen via Yami, via Natural 20, from Somberero

1. Don't be poo poo to each other. This is a game, part of the game is having people react, but if you think youíre reacting badly, walk away, calm down, come back later.
2. For the lurker mechanic for this game, anybody below 10 posts per day will be allowed to be lunched without ending the day. This will be announced by the mod.
3. Don't edit your posts.
4. Don't talk after you're dead. I'll send you a PM to a Dead doc if you want to chat poo poo.
5. Feel free to post after the hammer/during twilight about non-game stuff.
6. Flavour is flavour, youíre welcome to pursue arguments on it if you want. However, scum are backed by fakeclaims. Additionally whilst I try to retain flavour justification for many abilities, they will not always match expectations.
7. No replacements after D2.
8. Don't directly quote any communication from me, including your role pm. If you have OOT communication with another player, the rule still applies.
9. Don't fake day actions.
10. If you are affected by a Day Action, do not post under any circumstances until we post the result of the Action. Everyone else is good to keep going.

A note about result language

1. A result that successfully targets will yield the result. "You successfully x your target"
2. A result that does not successfully target will yield the result. "Your action fails."
3. If a player name is ever mentioned as part of a result, this is a mod error.
4. A "successful" target is defined as an ability resolving on someone. This does not have to be the intended target, so a redirected result will yield the same language as a result that has not been redirected.

Quick bump. Note that if the game doesn't fill, which might feasibly be due to me being mod, I am perfectly happy handing the reins to someone else for a final balance check + running the thing. For whatever it's worth I think there are a few neat ideas in here (that don't go too crazy). I think it's worth playing :) .

I already wondered if this would be necessary. A Yankee spy has infiltrated the Discord. Could you all please either post or PM me your Discord ID for verification.

edit: the invasion has been dealt with. I'm also fine assuming that things will go well from now on.

I am about to start the game. Thread will be temporarily locked. Please bear with me as it's my first time; it might be slower than you're used to.

We all knew it had to happen some day, but it's too soon.



The Father of Nations has been taken from us by the cruel vicissitudes of fate. He who lead us through the harshest wars and winters, who kept us fed and protected, is now gone. What will happen to the Union? Who will end up leading us through these dark times? This will likely be decided soon...

The game begins.
