I figure we could use a nice little distraction, so I'm launching a Mafia game here! If you've never played Mafia, here's the gist:

This will be a game for 16 players. Most of you will be TOWN aligned. Some of you will be SCUM aligned. TOWN's goal is to eradicate all threats to themselves. SCUM wants to kill most of the TOWN players until they are either at parity with or hold majority against them. Most players will only have their vote to rely on, but some of you might have special Power Roles.

This game runs on two cycles, Day Phase and Night Phase.

During the Day Phase the thread is open for everyone to discuss the game and try to figure out who the scum are. If you're scum, you certainly don't want town to know about it! People vote during the day phase by typing [b]##VOTE (player name)[/ b]. A majority of the votes are needed to eliminate a player from the game. Town wants to try to vote off the scum obviously as that is their strongest method getting closer to their win condition. Scum want to lie and try to convince players to vote off someone who is town instead. There is the possibility that some players may be neither scum nor town, but instead want to win based on their own personal agenda! There is a deadline set for when the vote must be achieved. If a majority is reached, then the is slammed down and the day ends immediately. If a majority vote is not reached by the deadline though, then NOBODY is eliminated from the game.

Night Phase, the thread is closed. During the night phase, scum will have the ability to kill a player, removing them from the game before the next day. Other players who have Power Roles will usually get to use their actions during the Night Phase as well. It's up to you to use them wisely.

The game will cycle through Day and Night until one side has achieved victory.

This thread will feature a heavy AEW flavor, but try not to get too hung up on roles. Flavor will impact who is scum and who is town, but the SCUM will have fake claims anyway, so don't waste time with Flavor arguments for alignment. Just enjoy the window dressing!


Some basic rules

1. DO NOT EDIT YOUR POSTS WHEN THE GAME STARTS
2. don't fake day actions (day actions are codified the same way as votes, ##(action) (player)
3. don't post if you're dead.
4. don't copy/paste messages from the mods/from any masonries or scumchats. they can be faked anyway, all doing this does is hurt the spirit of the game. don't do it.
5. don't lurk once the game starts. At the end of each Day Phase, players with less than 10 posts in the thread for the Day Phase will be placed on notice. If any player on notice makes less than ten posts again on a further day phase, or if they edit their posts and get caught, they will be killed by Ref Aubrey!


Don't let this happen to you.

Mafia writers know to not make Scum to have bad guy character flavours. Otherwise you can massclaim for "what wrestler did you get" and work out scum based on who is scum in character.

Yes, but that makes the scum 11, 12, 13 and so on of the Dark Order.

can i ask questions about this? i've never wanted to play this very common game type that everyone knows how to play except me before. if i'm allowed to ask questions: 1. what do you do that requires more than 10 posts per day phase? talk out strategy and why someone else should be voted out? 2. why can't you lurk the thread. i probably won't try to play this and screw it up even if you do not answer this so don't worry. Thank you very much

Basically you have to interact because otherwise it's impossible to suss out what side someone is on when they're completely silent. You can't spot a bullshitter if they don't talk.

And you can make posts in character or talk poo poo or accuse someone baselessly and hope it gains traction. It's everyone going "that sounds like something SCUM would say" to everyone else and it's fun

If there wasn't a "lurker mechanic" in these games nobody would ever post. 10 posts may sound like a lot but that is easily reachable. Mafia is a really fun game and the Mafia community on SA is amazing. I discovered it like 3 years ago and I have met so many cool people because of it. I'm not saying you need to play in a game a week or whatever, but give it a shot. Worse case scenario you hate it, you played one game, no harm no foul.

The faces he makes while posting are inexcusable! When he writes a post his face is like a troll double checking bones to see if there's any meat left! When I post I look like a peacock softly kissing a rose! Didn't his parents provide him with a posting mirror to practice forums faces growing up?
