Default Barebones Mafia - GAME THREAD


Brought to you by nZane


*****


Night 0

Most murder mysteries begin with a great exposition into the deceased and the possible scenarios surrounding their unlikely demise. They go into the last remaining moments of the victims' life and toss out several clues as to who perpetrated this horrible act and what they could possibly gain from it.

This is not one of those occasions.

nZane had last been seen leaving the pub, after enjoying a few pints with his drinking buddies and generally having a good time, as he usually did. Now, nZane was no town politician. He had no authority at all in this small town. He was driven by a strong conscious, however, and through this he had helped lead the groundswell of support to rid the town of it's once seedy underbelly. In fact, the town had been a peaceful place for some time now. That was all about to change.

The scream could be heard for miles.

The trauma of what she had discovered caused the local librarian to flee town almost immediately. For there in the village square, she had made the gruesome discovery.

Face down, one bullet to the back of the head. This was a message, and it was delivered loud and clear.

nZane is dead. He was the Town Aligned Activist, Drinking Buddy, and All-Around Good Guy.

This town would never be the same again...

Everyone, returning players included, please read this post and keep it in mind throughout the course of the game!



HOW TO PLAY:

- All of you will be PMíd a role and your alignment. The objective is to eliminate all members of the opposing alignment from the game.

- Each player has been given a role with their own special ability. Your PM will explain what it does, if you are meant to know. You donít have to reveal what your role is to the other players, nor will I do so in my updates. Then again there is nothing to stop you, so if you feel that it may help prove your innocence, go ahead Ė just keep in mind that this could also backfire and help the mafia. Likewise, you may lie about who you are if you wish. If you want to use your abilities, PM me. DO NOT post it in the thread.

- The game is split into two phases, Day and Night. The game begins during the day, and all players (Mafia and Townie alike) post in the thread, deciding who to kill off. Lynching is the only way for the Townies to kill the Mafia, so be sure to examine voting patterns of your fellow players. I might also provide clues in the death write ups, but over-reliance on those is ill-advised as some may be traps.

- All voting and discussion is to occur within the thread. Town players may discuss who they think is Mafia, and Mafia members should be trying to bluff/convince/blend in, and generally try not to get voted for. To vote, post Vote: Username (in bold, so itís easier to count). You can also change your vote, by typing Change Vote: Username. You can also choose to vote for No Lynching. You must post in the thread for your vote to be counted. You can also abstain from voting, which means I just do not include you in the number crunching.

- Elimination occurs after 48 hours, or whenever a person obtains more than 50% of the vote. In case of a tie, the latest vote will be discounted, until the tie is broken. Once a person dies, I will reveal their alignment and role.

- Night falls after somebody is executed. During this time, the Mafia can discuss who they want to kill next (using whatever form of communication appeals to them) Ė if anyone at all. Abilities are also used during this time. To use an ability, PM me, and Iíll PM you the outcome of the ability. If it is something serious like somebody getting killed, I will update it in the thread. If possible though, try to PM me what you want to do as soon after night falls as possible to keep things moving along at a quick pace.

- Night ends once I post who gets killed, and the cycle repeats itself. The Town players win if all Mafia members are dead, and vice versa. Remember, this is a team effort, so if you think sacrificing someone may help your cause, go ahead.

-Remember, some roles such as investigators and protectors are more valuable to the town Ė so try to keep them alive!


RULES:

- I know itís the Dog Pound, but try not to postwhore in the thread anyway. Feel free to trash talk, accuse, call out other players if you want, but if youíre going to vote, at least state some kind of reason as to why youíre doing so.

- Though I canít force you to post, Iíd love to see active participation. I would advise everyone try to check in with this game at least once a day. Things move fast and you can fall behind pretty easily.

- Once you are dead, you stay dead, and may not participate until the game is over. This includes notes found on your corpse, cryptic messages from the dead, etc, etc. You may also not advise the remaining players on what to do Ė besides, to prevent cheating, I will not provide the dead with any additional information than they would get if they were still alive. Of course, Iím willing to listen to your theories as to whatís going on. Likewise, I'd appreciate if those not taking part try not help those playing, though general comments on how things are going would be welcomed in the Sign Up Thread.

- Unless your role PM specifically states otherwise, all players may not discuss game plan, your role, or alignment outside the thread. Of course, I canít enforce this, but I believe secretly revealing information amongst each other would spoil the game, so try not to do it.

- Players are not allowed to edit their posts in this thread at all, as it allows for those who make mistakes to remove all of the evidence without any effort. Since I can't enforce this, I strongly encourage town aligned players to scrutinize any posts they notice that have been edited.



I reserve the right to modkill if I find out that any of these rules have been broken. Please remember that you are not the only one playing this game, so don't ruin it for the other 24!

Also, should you have any questions about your role, alignment, or anything else game-related, feel free to PM me. I want this game to go as smooth as possible.

Dayphase has NOT started yet. Once role PMs are sent, I'll let you guys know that it is the first Dayphase and then you can get the lynching (or no lynching) underway.

Role PMs have all gone out, so...


It is now Dayphase.

With 25 remaining, it is 13 to lynch!

You have until 5:00pm CDT (11:00pm GMT) Tuesday, October 23 to reach a majority vote.



Happy hunting!

I'm feeling we should go with a Lynch, but I'm not sure exactly who to lynch yet.

Given that I've never played before, I'm happy to grab my pitchfork and flaming torch at any time. I'm keeping them next to my door, along with my emergency flashlight, some chocolate rations and a few warm blankets.

As anyone knows from previous games, I'm not a fan of the no lynch. I do think we should use as much of our 48 hours as possible though. I also suggest NickC13573 as a bandwagon lynch. Purely based on the last game we played.

I was thinking basically the same thing. My original blind choice to vote for in the next game isn't playing this time, so I think NickC, based on his performance in the last game is a good person to start with.

Out oc curiosity but with no desire to trawl several pages of old games, would anyone like to explain to me why we're voting for Nic blindly? Seems like it's a wild stab in the dark to eliminate someone this early without actually knowing anything about them. But if he's really good, I suppose I might not have a problem sharpening the pitchfork for him.
