Welcome to Final Fantasy 8 Mafia! A game of mafia for 16 players.



I've attempted to simplify things while keeping the feel of previous games in this series of mafia games.

This is going to be role madness style game with non standard night action mechanics.

Standard Mafia Rules apply.

It's going to be a fairly standard game of mafia with normal voting etc during the day.

The twist is that every night there is going to be a global encounter.


I will post the encounter with the days flip.

Each living player will send me one of the following actions via DM on discord or PMs here -

Attack: An attacking player counts toward victory
Magic: Uses a drawn magic ability
Item: Uses an item
Draw: Draw a spell from the current enemy encounter

Some players may have other things they can do that augment these basic actions or manipulate them in some way but all night actions revolve around these encounters and those four basic actions that everyone can do.

When you choose anything other than attack it will not count towards encounter victory unless the spell or item says it does or you have an ability that tells you that.

Scum still get a "night" kill during the encounter phase.

ENCOUNTERS:

Each encounter will be with an enemy that you would fight in the game Final Fantasy 8.

Each encounter will have a difficulty rating that translates into how many people have to choose "Attack" in order to defeat it. The other thing that determines the amount of attacks needed is the amount of remaining living players.

If the encounter is defeated and the players are victorious each player will gain a level. This level is only important in determining the effects of spells.
If the encounter is not defeated, the scum players will receive a temporary bonus.

GENERAL STUFF:

Flavor is not necessarily an indicator of alignment.

You may freely trade items and drawn spells during the day only. Just send me a pm or message on discord.

The gist is that in order to get traditional docs/cops/vigs etc you'll need to draw spells.
Drawing spells will mean that you don't count towards victory, but in order to level up and improve drawn spells you'll need to win encounters.

All of the traditional "Mafia" style abilities are the effects of drawn spells only.

Everyone will need to join this discord link in order to play.

Confirming. If you don't get enough players you can also sign me up for the other ten spots.

I take it that the "Item" encounter action is only used by people who've received one for some role- or encounter-related reason and that the only always-available choices are Attack or Draw?

This is correct



Magic and Item are only available if you have those things.

You will know if you do.

"Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday."
(Wilma Rudolph)



I havenít missed one of these yet, I donít think. But Iím not mentally there at the moment.

Please put me as a replacement and Iíll see if Iím able to come in if needed. Iíll be reading along for sure.

I'm amazed the extent to which it's still the same old gang playing this game all these years later. I was expecting to come back and not know anyone.

Oh! Thank you for the offer, that is very sweet, but I shouldn't sign up anyway -- I'm in another game and I try very hard to stick to one at a time. I was going to break the rule for a chance to be ~Very Extra Rinoa~ because I have poor impulse control.

Keep your spot, and be extra on the Sorceress's behalf. And thank you for offering.
