Welcome to Mafia in Margaritaville. This is a 13 15-player game of mafia set in a dystopian, post-apocalyptic world based on Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville. This game should overall be pretty straightforward, but the roles are gonna be weird. Please join!

In the year 2023 AD, the earth has been ravaged by climate change. Rapidly increasing sea levels have caused life to adapt in strange new ways: the surface of this newly blue world is dotted with sentient boats.

Earthís sole remaining city, Margaritaville, is a utopian state where boats and humans live in harmony. Some said this dream was impossible, yet it lives on, despite the foul intentions of its exiled former ruler who seeks to enslave and exploit all of boatkind.

Each year, as the king tide reaches its apex, the floating city fills with boats seeking a captain, and with captains seeking a boat - the Great Floatation. This ritual is as old as time, or at least, as old as a few years of time.

The day of the Great Floatation has come again. The narrow canals of the city swarm with Captains enjoying cheeseburgers in paradise and Boats doing Boat Stuff. The National Anthem of Margaritaville fills the city at a pretty chill volume level.

Without warning, the dulcet tones of Rupert Holmes are quickly interrupted by an abrupt scratch, totally killing the vibe.

A new voice blares.

The Dread King Jimmy Buffet Jr. posted:

Citizens of Margaritaville: it is I, the Dread King Jimmy Buffet Jr. Too long has this city been stripped from my grasp. I will soon sip from the salty, lime-scented Kingís Chalice once again. For years, I've been building a secret armada to infiltrate the Great Floatation and retake this once-great city from the inside. Now, the time has finally come, and for reasons I don't fully understand I am publicly telling you about it.

It is up to you, players, to ferret out the Dread Kingís hidden armada from amongst you, and to save Margaritaville from the forces that would deprive it of its free nachos from 4 to 6:30 on Tuesdays (there is an additional charge for sour cream and guac). Good luck!

IMPORTANT GAME INFO
  • Please do not sign up for this game if you cannot make meaningful contributions to it.
  • Days end on a majority vote (50%+1) of the players. If that threshold is not reached, no player will be exiled.
  • Lurking in this game will have grave consequences and could negatively impact your team.
  • This game will include real-time events. Players who are actively monitoring the thread may have an advantage.
  • No player can perform two actions on one night unless specifically granted that ability. In general, powers are active - ie, a Godfather cannot investigate as town the same night they perform a nightkill.
  • If your role allows you to do something public during the day, post the command in bold. For example: ##kill dy. If you post a fake day action, you will get modkilled. If someone performs a day action of any kind, STOP POSTING until flavor is posted by a mod.

FACTIONS & FLIPS
  • Cardflip is on and will be in the following format: Name, Role Name (Alignment)
  • There are two factions in this game: town and scum. That's it. The two following win conditions are the only ones in the game.
  • TOWN WIN CONDITION: You win the game when all threats to the town have been eliminated.
  • SCUM WIN CONDITION: You win the game when the scum have achieved unassailable dominance of the town.


THE BORING RULES
  • I know that things get a little testy in mafia, but let's try to generally be respectful and cool and keep positive vibes, OK?
  • No editing posts. Evidence of editing is grounds for a modkill. Ninja edits will be ignored, but edit at your own peril.
  • No communicating outside of the thread unless authorized by your PM.
  • No publishing any verbatim mod communication unless specifically approved by me.
  • Don't post after the hammer.


NOTES ON BOATS

How do BOATs work?

In general, there are two types of roles in this game: BOATs (Boats of All Trades) and Captains (boat drivers).

A BOAT chooses an action to perform and a player to act as its Captain.
A Captain will target a BOAT to pilot, and a target player, and if chosen by a BOAT, that player will be the target of the BOAT action.

Further details may be role-dependent.

The holy union between BOAT and Captain requires trust. The BOAT chooses the action and the Captain chooses the target. When the BOAT and the Captain unite, magic happens.

In terms of results:
  • Both the BOAT and the Captain will know whether the union was successful or not.
  • The BOAT will know whether the outcome of their action but not who the target was.
  • The Captain will where they went but not what the action was.
In general, BOATs are in the dark about the target and Captains are in the dark about the action.

For example:

BOAT chooses to roleblock and selects Nemo as its Captain. Nemo chooses the BOAT as its BOAT and targets Dread King Jimmy Buffet Jr. BOAT receives a PM that they successfully roleblocked. Nemo receives a PM that they successfully Captained the BOAT.

(this is just a general example and individual roles may work slightly differently

All in-game stuff will happen in the thread - there will be no aspect of this game on Discord. I will probably just leave it up to the scum to set up their own communication unless they need help.

Also I'm seat-of-the-pantsing this taking time to carefully balance every detail and I haven't written all of the role flavor stuff yet so if you want to be a specific boat or captain please let me know privately and I will do my best to accommodate you.

This thread is now about roleplaying boats / boat captains.

Right before the pandemic hit I went to the Escape from Margaritaville show and it was pleasantly terrible so I am excited for some great Buffet-related flavor

Also to play with all these old players, I was just about to run a game where I invited old people back but I am even happier to play in one

Thanks dy.!

For sure!

Spoiler alert: I kind of hate Jimmy Buffet but I drove by a Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville restaurant (there is one in my town) the other day and it somehow Inceptioned me into making this game, about sentient boats. Life is weird.

There is a margaritaville in the bay?

Also Iím still upset I completely blanked on you moving out there when I was still in the Bay Area. I assume it was 2017ish because it would have been when my son was born and then dad passed and it was a strange year just trying to stay afloat with things.
