Welcome to Albert Brooks Mafia, a game for 13 players

Players:
  1. Amnistar
  2. Anomalous Amalgam
  3. b-minus1
  4. Dick Bastardly
  5. Epsilon Plus
  6. Hal Incandenza
  7. Leith Maclaine
  8. Lumpen
  9. merk
  10. Mr. Steak
  11. Sandwolf
  12. Somberbrero
  13. The Ninth Layer



Rules:
Majority lynches, not plurality, which could allow for a no-lynch day
-No quoting mod PMs.
-No fake day actions
-Days will be 2-4 days IRL
-Nights should be no more than 24 hours
-Try not to post after the hammer. I work 12 hour days with no forums access at work, so if you gun crazy kids lynch someone while I'm out, it may be a few hours before I can close the thread. Try and respect that.
-To format your vote please type "##vote targetname" in bold ( [ b ] to bold, without the spaces, [ /b ] to close tags). ##unvote if you wish to remove your vote from someone but not put it on someone else yet.
-If you lurk there will be consequences.
-Have fun, it's a game.
-I like to use new/weird roles, so if you don't like that you probably won't like this game.

I donít know what an Albert Brooks is but Iíve been looking for a smaller game to be aloof and chill and shitpost in, so sure.

I'd been happy, and I was happy still. For all to be accomplished,
for me to feel less lonely,
all that remained to hope
was that on the day of my execution
there should be a huge crowd of spectators and that they should
greet me with howls of execration.

Who is Albert Brooks and why is there a Mafia game about him? Well, the producer of the film has provided me with a list of who he is, which I will address below, but the point is that the Big Aristotle himself wants to make you aware of his influence.
It's a picture of Alfred Hitchcock standing next to Brooks' head in a winery from the 1920s. And something odd happens when you click on the picture. Not to mention that it's very strangely coloured. It's the interior of a building that looks much like a Weyland-Yutani facility with the surface having odd reflective stains on it. The strange things are brought to a head when you click on another picture with Alfred Hitchcock beside it. It's the same picture but now it's the H-Y logo from the Red Dawn DVD.
Nothing could be more clear now and it really, really has to be more than

Filling up fast! Albert Brooks is filling up fast, man! This is a mafia game and the slots are limited, so you'll have to fill in as much as you can when they get filled up. This is especially true if you're lucky enough to win the Old Casino and steal your opponents' bags. This would be a bad time to do this, though, because the slot machines are played with a flipping mechanism called "boom gun". This weapon can only be fired if the old slot machine you're trying to steal is receiving a compatible subroutine.

Albert Brooks is best known for being the brother to SuperDave/Funkhauser/The Surrogate

Or maybe for being a director and actor and stuff

I have never been even slightly naughty but the haters keep saying Iím naughty. Besides, I love coal. Isnít coal great, folks? If you put me in, itís going to be huge, itís going to be the best. Better than ever. Santa canít take his eyes off me and you know why? My list is too good. He has a list and he checks it twice but have you ever seen how many times I check my list? And believe me, I know whoís naughty. I know the naughty ones and thatís why I get the best deals at deadline. Theyíre going to get voted out like a dog. Believe me. Believe me. Youíve never seen anything like this before, folks. Iím behaving myself TOO well. Theyíre going to say ďPlease Lumpen, you can be a little naughty, we like it!Ē Santa said that to me, can you believe it? Sad!

Also is it cool to call out Lumpen when you have people like that jerk Sandwolf, curmudgeon Somberbrero, drunkard IllegallySober and other Texas "people" like AA and humalong?

If it wasn't for Leith this would be like the worst roster ever and you are calling out Lumpen? What would Albert Brooks say...
