Is it I that is insane... or the rest of the world?





Welcome to Brockton Bay!

The city most infamous for the biggest parahuman density per square mile, Brockton Bay is never quiet. There's always a fight between superpowered gang leaders, the police, mercenaries or who- (or even what-)ever else had been dragged into this hellhole.

You're in the middle of it. Have fun.


Basic information:

Days will be 48-72 hours in length. Nights will be roughly 24 hours. These are flexible based on when I want to be up and doing things.
This is a role madness game is for 17 people.
We’ll be using Discord to manage everything, so please make sure you have access to those for the game. https://discord.gg/hq8ug6V
Alignment changes are not part of this game.

General Mafia Rules (That have been stolen from Natural 20 who stole them 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 you’re reacting badly, walk away, calm down, come back later.
2. For the lurker mechanic for this game, the top poster will receive a free lurker vig at the bottom-most player that had less than 10 posts per day that comes within 2 hours of finishing. If there are more than one, the second highest poster will receive one aimed at the second lowest, etc.
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, you’re welcome to pursue arguments on it if you want. However, scum are backed by elaborate 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 I 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 other than those that require it, 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.

Signups:

  1. A Sometimes Food
  2. Amnistar (He/Him)
  3. b-minus1
  4. Bifauxnen (she/her but I don't care if you gently caress it up )

I liked it a lot, personally. The setting is pretty cool, being a bit more "realistic" of a superhero setting (exploring the effects on economy and politics and such) but it gets kind of grimdark later on. Also has a very active fanfic community if you're into that kind of thing.

From a mafia role standpoint I think it makes perfect sense!

Umm...not that I can think of. I think Security might have them using accord's plans? SI fix-it fics are probably most likely for that kind of thing.

So I started reading this and love it. I’m assuming playing in this game would give me spoilers, though?

Not sure how long the book is, but put me as a replacement for now and if I finish reading while signups are still open, I’ll move over.

I tried to make it as spoiler free as possible. You'll be lacking pretty much all of the story context so it shouldn't be too big of a deal.
