The witching hour has come to a close, and all the ghouls and ghosts are resting in peace for another year. After a long October of terrorizing the innocent and slaughtering dumbass teenagers, the icons of horror have come together for the 45th annual Monster Mash! This year, it's being held at the historic Black Lagoon Resort and Casino, hosted by our owner, the Creature himself! But behind the festive atmosphere, the horrible stench of good lingers in the air. Perhaps we have some uninvited guests to this year's festivities? Well, I'm sure nothing can go wrong...

Hello everyone! Welcome to my very first game of Mafia, being co-modded by Grandicap, who has graciously agreed to guide me through this process. This is a game for 15 players, is going to be mostly vanilla (with maybe a couple of surprises), and will have a decent number of roles. No death millers or alignment changes, nothing weird like that. Days will be 48-72 hours, and nights will be 24 hours. I plan on starting once Beezelbee's and Squid Game fully wind down.

The Rules (as stolen from everyone else who stole them from Somber who stole them from Natural 20)

1. Be excellent to one another.
2. No editing your posts.
3. If you're dead, you're dead, don't post in the thread.
4. Don't quote direct communications from any oot source. Violating that will get you mod killed.
5. Don't fake day actions. If one is posted, please continue posting until it is resolved.
6. This will be a bit of a flavorful game, but don't let flavor arguments trip you up. Scum has been provided with fake claims.
7. Usual Lurker rules apply. Ten posts per day. First offense is a warning, second is a modkill. This will be eased if the day ends with 12 hours or more left on the clock, and ignored if the day ends 24 hours or more early.
8. Respect the hammer and please do not post after hammer. If I'm not around, just wait for me to lock the thread and post the flip.

The ghouls and ghosts in attendance gathered up in the dim light of the Black Lagoon's conference hall. A full open buffet was ready to go, and the guests of honor were all welcomed to attend the opening ceremonies. The owner of the Black Lagoon strided forward on stage to greet them.

"Hello, friends, old and new. We welcome you to this year's Monster Mash! Now, I know to most of you, I'm rather washed up... ...No? No one?" The creature sighed. "Honestly I thought some of you would appreciate a good water joke... Anyways, I've been out of the horror game for a long time, and I'm really happy to see you all here. November is a special time where we all get together and..." His sentimental speech was stopped by the lights going out across the room as candles were all suddenly snuffed out. "..Huh. Our magic lighting seems to have gone out so if you could all please remain c....URK!" The lights came back on... and in the center of the stage was the host of the party, though it seemed the party would be going on without him. A clean crossbow shot right to his heart. The doors to the hotel locked, sealed with wards. Paranoia and anger set in among the guests as everyone looked for who to blame for this ghastly act. It was all too clear that something had gone very wrong, and there were some uninvited guests looking to spoil the celebration...


Night 0: The Creature from the Black Lagoon, Town Party Host has been slain!



With the host of the party slain, it was time for a new game. Find the hunters who were not supposed to be here before they could do any more damage. ...Or else.



We're touching a weekend, so you have 72 hours. Good luck! (Thank you to Shellception for these appropriately themed banners!)

Hey all, GM gently caress up. While editing the discord permissions to make it so that Observers couldn't talk in private confessionals, I hosed up and made a couple of the channels accidentally viewable by everyone for about a minute. Now those who saw it all immediately reported it to me while I was fixing the problem and I believe none of them looked inside, so we're fine to continue.

I do want to let everyone know that all channels have been labeled with their monster names, fake or real, so there was no confirmation of any particular character alignment. I'm sorry for the gently caress up, please continue.

With the lights going out, there really was only one explanation for who could have been responsible. All eyes turned to the resident gremlin, demanding a response. Stripe proceeded to laugh and flip the entire audience the bird, daring them to do something. The crowd of monsters proceeded to oblige Stripe by surrounding him and stomping him to death.

Unfortunately, there appeared to be no sign of any crossbow bolts on the Gremlin, and the assembled staff hurriedly escorted the VIPs back to their rooms, hoping that perhaps this was all just a one time occurrence...


RetroFuturist has been lunched!

When raising a Mogwai, there's three rules you should really follow. Keep them out of direct sunlight, as it will kill them. Never get them wet. And above all else.. do NOT feed them after midnight. ...Needless to say your average kid and protagonist of one of the best christmas/horror movies of all time did not follow these rules. As a result, we got Stripe and his band of horrible, murderous Gremlins.



You are Stripe, Town-Aligned Gunsmith

Well, as much as you love chaos, you'd much rather not be taken out. Each night, you may pick a target and investigate them. You'll find out if they are capable of killing another player.

The hopes that this could be salavaged into a peaceful vacation are quickly shattered come morning, as not one, but two grisly scenes are found by the hotel staff when the convention goers fail to show up for morning check-ins. Frankenstein's Monster is found first after he misses his morning dance classes, his room trashed, but the creature's decapitated body laying in relative peace on the bed. The second scene is far more grisly. An entire hallway has been lit aflame, and there are signs of a brutal struggle, as the corpse of Michael Myers lays burned, beaten, and stabbed. The guests reconvene in the main room, tensions aflame as they try to figure out what happened...

CirclMaster (Frankenstein's Monster) and Taste (Michael Myers) have died during the night!



CirclMaster was Frankenstein's Monster, Town-Aligned Vanilla

Other than your vote, you have no other powers. Sorry!

Each night, you choose a player and set up outside their room. You'll be informed who visits them in the evening, if anyone.

Yet another commotion stirred among the convention attendees. One of the attendants claimed that someone had redirected an invite to a private party, and from there, things got violent. One massive argument later, suspicion turned on Willy the Weasel. "Hey hey, pals, if you can't trust your old friend Willy, who can you trust? Well okay listen, I'm here to do a murder, but I didn't do THAT murder, and why are you all looking at me like that? The rest of the monsters responded with a rather traditional angry mob routine, stringing up the animatronic weasel and getting to work violently disabling it.



Merk (Willy the Weasel), Town-Aligned Van...

"Hey.. uh.. isn't that guy supposed to bleed oil, not well.. blood?" One of the monsters walked over and pulled off Willy's head to reveal that it wasn't a machine at all.. .it was a mascot costume! And underneath was...



Merk (Bobby Pickett), Self-Aligned Comedian has been...

"Wait a minute.. that guy's face is in black and white! That doesn't make any sense, this is just a mask!" The mask was pulled off, and the true face of the enemy was finally revealed. The assistant manager quickly ordered his room searched and found a small stockpile of weapons, cleaning supplies, and a pinball machine for some reason. This time, there would be no mercy for.. ...whoever the hell this was.



Merk (The Janitor), Scum-Aligned Busdriver has been lunched!

Surprisingly you are not actually a janitor. Each night you may select two targets and swap them. Any visitors to target A will instead visit target B and vice versa.

You win when your team has uncontested control of the vote.

With one less uninvited guest skulking around, the convention breathed a sigh of relief, and decided to retire for the evening, hoping that this night would be far more peaceful than the last.

A new day at the convention begins, and once again, someone hasn't made it to the morning check-up. A search of the hotel finds that where the ancient priest once walked, all that's left of him now is a decaying, inanimate Mummy. One thing has become very clear. This is not over.



Sandwolf (Imhotep), Town-Aligned Vanilla, has been returned to the dead on Night 2!

Confusion spread through the crowd as arguments spread, multiple sources claiming to have seen certain individuals in certain places at the same time. Finally, the argument was settled, as a trapdoor was opened below one of the guests' feet, sending them down to the dungeon where they would not trouble the convention any longer. ...Unfortunately, a search of their room found nothing but sewing supplies and books on how to swim. It seemed they were no closer to solving this mystery...



Mister Humalong (Jason Voorhees), Town Aligned Bulletproof...? has been dropped into the dungeon on day 3

You are notoriously hard to kill, even when you were still technically alive. As such, you have a single charge of bulletproof, that will protect you from most kills. However, when it gets popped, you go into RAGE MODE. You will immediately recieve a one shot day vigilante.

You win when all threats to the town are eliminated.

No one sleeps well tonight. The silence of the evening is shattered by the sounds of gunshots. Lots and lots of gunshots. By the time anyone gets there, the assailant is long gone, but their handiwork remains. A bullet riddled corpse, all that remains of the once proud baron of the full moon.



Maerlyn (The Wolfman), Town-Aligned Tracker has been gunned down in the night!

The next ghastly crime is not discovered until the morning, when hotel staff notice that Slimer has not shown up to pillage the morning breakfast buffet. A search of his room reveals that he was no ghost originally, but he might just be one now. He was also clearly packing tools to deal with the supernatural, and to manipulate hotel security...



B-Minus1 (Peter Venkman), Scum-Aligned Jailer has been murdered!

The monsters had come to a decision and once again, judgement was swift. Even if he wasn't guilty, people realized that he wasn't even on the guest list to begin with, and with a strong punt, Chucky was unceremoniously kicked out the nearest window into the lagoon. Prompt investigation revealed that breaking into the convention and faking a reservation was his only crime though.

The morning seems to be quiet for once, and everyone breathes a sigh of relief, until the remaining guests realize why it's so quiet. Beetlejuice is not around doing his usual loud obnoxious greetings. The hotel staff quickly go to work, but all that can be found of him is a severed arm and remnants of his suit. Things are getting desperate...



Toalpaz (Beetlejuice), Town-Aligned Masonry Creator has checked out of the party!

The fighting in the convention hall that day was long and fierce, but eventually, the remaining monsters realized that there was something wrong with Pinhead. Blows ensued, before the box was knocked out of his hands. But instead of vanishing away, a glamour was broken.. and what was standing there was a large... red... demon.

"OH HO HO! You have all been so, so naughty, daring to hold your convention in MY season. But I think the carnage has taught you all a very valuable lesson about which of us has the real power around here. Though I doubt any of you can end up on the nice list."

Before Santa could finish his threats, an alarm bell rang out... an emergency runic circle being activated below his feet, the remaining monsters surrounding the Lord of Christmas.

"Well it appears our fun will have to end for now. I do hope all of you have a very good niiiiiight!"

And in a flash of light, it was over.. the self proclaimed saint sent packing, hopefully back to the north pole. Drained after that confrontation, everyone headed back to their room, hoping that would be the end of it...




Voodoofly (Santa Claus), Self-Aligned Serial Killer has been banished from the hotel!

Each night, you may choose one target and attempt to kill them. If you are successful, you will gain a one shot copy of that target's ability (if they had one.) Each night you may use any number of your stolen abilities IN ADDITION to the night kill.

You also have a single charge of Bulletproof that will protect you from most kill attempts.

You win when you are the last man standing.

The remaining four guests stared each other down, but the argument was over before it even began. The other three rushed the guest going by the alias of "Hambeet," grabbing him with their supernatural strength, and shoving him away into a coffin. "Do you know who I am? I'm Vlad Tepes Dracula, the head of this whole damned convention! I will be damned if I take any more of these accusations!" But the vampire's protests were cut short, as the three other guests shut him in the coffin, some nails being quite helpfully provided to seal him away and silence him.



Hambeet (Count Dracula), Town-Aligned Vanilla has been sealed away!

It was at this moment that someone paused to ask where the nails actually came from. Freddy looked at Mr. Hyde and shrugged. Mister Hyde then took the next logical step, holding the third guest down while Freddy drove his claws clean through the beast's head, putting the Demogorgon down for good.



Deadmeat5150 (The Demogorgon), Town-Aligned Vanilla has been slain!

[i]With their grisly job done, Hyde breathed a sigh of relief. "Hah. Now I'll just take this chump's mask off and we'll see who's been ruining my vacation!" Hyde pulled on the Demogorgon's head. It felt.. fleshy. Slimy... Real. And it wasn't coming off. "...Freddy, I don't think this is a mask, what's going on...?" Inhuman screams rang out as a needle was injected into Hyde from Freddy's... claws...? Hyde could feel the serum boiling inside of him as he realized that it was all too late...



Yami Fenrir (Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde), Town-Aligned Doctor/Bodyguard has been endgamed!

Each night, you may pick a target. If they would be killed during the night, you will prevent that kill. After taking the doctor action though, you'll drink the potion, and turn into Mister Hyde. As Hyde, you instead perform the bodyguard action. You may target any player. If they would be killed that night, you are killed instead.

[i]The Black Lagoon was on fire, all remnants of that accursed place soon to be nothing but ashes. The monster slayer smirked as he left the burning hotel in his wake. It hadn't come easily, but that was the end of a whole host of monsters and demons. And though his work was never done, perhaps now he could take a vacation of his own...



Bifauxnen (Abraham Van Helsing), Scum-Aligned Rolecop has claimed victory!

Your knowledge of the supernatural will come in handy here. Each night, you may choose a target and investigate them. You will be told their identity and role.

You also have access to the following scum team factional ability.

When anyone on the team performs the night kill, you may apply one of the following modifiers to it. Each of these abilities is a one shot.

Ninja: You can not be observed or tracked performing this kill.
Juggernaut: This kill will bypass most protections.
Janitor: Only the player name and flavor will flip. Alignment and role will be hidden.


Congrats to Bif, Binus, and Merk for their team victory.
