Some of you, if you've been playing for way too long, may remember Pokemonfia, seven years ago. Or slightly less too long, Pokemonfia Gold and Silver, four years ago. Pokemonfia 1 was far too busy, with too much going on. Pokemonfia 2 was also very busy, and that was a good thing in some ways, but a bad thing in others. However, there were a few ideas I had for Pokemonfia 2 that just never ended up getting used, for various reasons. This is my chance to use them, without all the work of making my typical complex game. (Also it means I don't rule out the possibility of a proper Pokemonfia 3... eventually.)

Pokemonfia TownGold and ScumSilver is a (somewhat) simpler Role Madness game for 13 14 players.

Mechanics
  • Join the Discord if you want to play OR observe, it's important.
  • There will be 13 14 players.
  • Though more restrained than previous Pokemonfia, this is absolutely still role madness. The balance will be, at best, strange, and there will be odd roles and mechanics.
  • If you are open to receiving an especially complicated role, please say so when signing up. Everyone will get a PR, but some are more complicated than others.
  • Each player will have a Pokemon, a Type, and an Ability.
  • It may or may not be dangerous to claim your flavor.
  • Don't worry if you aren't super familiar Pokemon, I'll be happy to explain anything you need to know.
  • Do not directly quote or post any part of your role PM aside from your species, type, and the NAME of your Ability. Anything else must be paraphrased, under penalty of modkill.
  • If you're not sure if something is safe to post, everyone will have their own channel in the Discord server specifically for talking to me and receiving PMs, so just ask there.
  • All non-Town players have been given a Town fakeclaim.
  • Town wins when all threats to Town have been eliminated.
  • Scum wins when they control the vote and there are no factors left in play that could change this.
  • Any 3P will have self-aligned win conditions. None will prematurely end the game.

And I'm just gonna quote myself from four years ago.

Chill about game accuracy, I probably know more about Pokemon than you.
I made a lot of decisions in favor of keeping the game smooth and understandable, don't make a big deal out of it.

Seriously, the first person to accuse me of being inaccurate to the games is going to get a five-paragraph essay about the best way to breed for a 5IV shiny Timid HA Eevee with Stored Power as an egg move, and how to fit one into your Gen VI UU team, as well as its relative merits and demerits compared to a similarly-prepared Mega Absol. The second person's just getting modkilled.

As a corollary, flavor arguments may have some merit, but do not take them as gospel.

Other than that, you know the deal. Don't be a poo poo, don't game the system.

PMush Perfect, Pikachu, Town-aligned Stunner has died Night 0!

quote:

Type: Electric
Ability: Static
Effect: When a player targets you with a night action, that player will become Paralyzed, and will not be able to perform any actions on the following night. This power cannot be roleblocked or disrupted in any way short of your death.
Victory Condition: You win when all threats to Town are eliminated.

Pikachu is dead. No one's quite sure who did it, or why. Was it in hopes of being the new mascot? Was it personal? Or was it just some random attack? Nobody knows, and that's making everyone nervous.

Okay, I'm bored of writing flavor now. PIKACHU'S DEAD, FIND THE SCUM AND AVENGE HER.

Day 1 begins now!

Let me know if that's a bad time for deadline. First day will be a little long, but weekend deadlines suck, so... .
