Default Sunset Mafia: Game Thread

READ OR DIE


HOW TO PLAY:


- All of you will be PM’d 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 don’t 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 – just keep in mind that this could also backfire and help the mafia. In other words, claim at your own risk. 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. Day phases will last 48 hours or until a consensus is reached. Night phases will last 24 hours but may end earlier if all night activities are concluded.

- 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 (MUST BE IN BOLD AND RED!). You can also change your vote, by typing Change Vote: Username (AGAIN BOLDED AND IN RED!). You can also change your vote to nobody by typing Change Vote: No Vote (IN BOLD AND RED!). You can also choose to vote for No Lynching by using Vote: No Lynch (yeah... BOLDED AND IN RED!), meaning you actively vote to not lynch anyone during that day phase rather than passively not voting at all. You must post in the thread for your vote to be counted. You do not have to vote if you do not wish to.

- A Day Phase is over whenever a person obtains more than 50% of the vote (and is lynched) or when the 48 hours run out. If no majority vote has been reached by the time the day phase expires, a no lynch will be declared. Once a person dies, I will reveal their alignment and role.

- Night falls after somebody is executed or a no lynch is achieved. During this time, the Mafia can discuss who they want to kill next (using whatever form of communication appeals to them). Abilities are also used during this time. To use an ability, PM the mods (The Two / Derek B), and he will PM you the outcome of the ability if you are to receive one before the following day phase. 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 – so try to keep them alive!


RULES:

- I know it’s 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 you’re going to vote, at least state some kind of reason as to why you’re doing so.

- Though I can’t force you to post, I’d 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 – 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, I’m willing to listen to your theories as to what’s 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 can’t 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 all players to scrutinize any posts they notice that have been edited.

-Players are not allowed to cut and paste anything straight from the Role PM except the Role title. No cutting and pasting from the body of the PM. You can paraphrase what your Role PM says but that is all.

-Please play your role/alignment and play to win. I will be strict about this, so please don't make me enforce it.

-Talking about your role after death or to those who have died IS NOT allowed.

-Not everything is as it seems. If something unexpected happens, feel free to question it to me in private, and if I can, I'll answer.

- In an effort to promote discussion from all players a minimum post limit of 5 posts per day phase is in play.

I reserve the right to mod kill if we 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 everyone else!

The mods for this game are The Two and Derek B. All PMs regarding abilities, questions or anything else should be sent to them. If you fail to communicate your information then I will go on what I have. You have be warned!

Let us all keep in mind that this is a game and should be an enjoyable experience.

Example Town Role:
Quote:
You are Sunset Acres Aligned Example Man

You have one goal in your life, and that is to be the example for all others to look too. Knowing someone else is following your lead gives you that warm fuzzy feeling down in your nether regions that you so desire. For the purposes of this game, you will show the town an example of a basic townie role PM.

You win when all threats to Sunset Acres have been defeated.

WAKE UP MUSIC - https://youtu.be/kzTQ9fjforY

The sun rises on the beautiful architecture of... well, that might be stretching the definition of the words a little... the adequate for purpose looking retirement community of Sunset Acres, home to an ever rotating cast of your elders and betters who once scratched, fought and voted against most of the things you wish you still had today. These days they mostly just scratch and fight whenever they are being pushed to do something they don't want to do while enjoying all the high octane delights of shuffleboard, card games and low intensity workouts that are definitely not being recorded and sold on select parts of the internet to help finance the under-funded and under-staffed community.

The day starts like every other day recently... with another resident found dead in unusual circumstances, this time inside a cleaning closet that is locked from the inside, with all the cleaning supplies knocked over and spilled everywhere. On the scene is the primary care nurse and police officers from outside the home, making sure there are no shenanigans going on recently.

POLICE #1: "And have there been any shenanigans going on recently?"

NURSE: "Nothing out of the ordinary."

POLICE #2: Anything of a.... sexual nature?"

NURSE: "Well, viagra exists and every resident that I've tested has at least one STI so.... yeah, nothing out of the ordinary here."


The first police officer shudders as he notes down everything he thinks is important, the second looks around the dining hall with a professional eye, and starts to doodle two of the residents doing something that only the double jointed and those with advanced hip dysplasia could even consider attempting. The attention to detail is astounding, and doing it in pencil really highlights all the shades of grey in the image.

POLICE #1: "It's so very strange. Every day another resident dies and there are no obvious signs of foul play or ill health..."

POLICE #2: "Apart from the STI's..."

POLICE #1: "Yes, apart from that. But now we've had ten residents over ten consecutive days... one ran until they had a heart attack... "

NURSE: "Found 30 feet away from their bed room..."

POLICE #1: "Another found trying to break into the Forbidden Games Closet"

NURSE: "We're still not sure why they were trying to get Twister back, but the groundsheet suffocated them..."

POLICE #1: "And now two found in different cleaning closets..."

NURSE: "Yes, there really isn't much to do here so there are bound to be repeats..... it was a shock to find another one in there but that's why we added the policy of checking all the closets first thing in the morning before we even check on the reisdents."

POLICE #1: "And every other resident also found in strange circumstances that don't even seem suspicious at first glance. Indeed, so far every one of them was found to have died of a heart attack."

NURSE: "And toxicology reports show that no one had any medication in them that they shouldn't have had."

POLICE #2: "I mean... old people die. It might be weird that they keep doing it one per day, but if you look at anything hard enough you can see a pattern...."


The second police officer is now watching one elderly lady pick up her knitting and begin to work on an item of... clothing, presumably? It's hard to tell for sure because the officer doen't know anyone with 3 arms (or legs?) and what appears to be space for a neck, all knitted together with what appears to be approximately 8 different kinds and colours of wool. Someone seems destined to get the greatest, wooliest Christmas sweater that there ever was. And you had better believe someone will make them wear it whenever they come to visit. The police officer mentally makes a note to be here when that happens.

NURSE: "It's just so weird that our residents are dying like this. I mean, they've spent their whole lives not dying and now they are dropping like a presidential approval rating. It's uncanny!"

POLICE #2: "Until one of these deaths is ruled as suspicious, there doesn't appear to be anything to investigate."

POLICE #1: "Agreed. We hope you keep up the good work you are doing here, bringing.... doing... uh... whatever it is you do here."


HOOOOOOONK!!

The roar of an antiquated engine and the old school horn signals the arrival of the Sunset Acres Travel Bus, the most urine soaked large scale people transporter in the country. None of the residents seem to notice the disruption despite how loud it is, but immediately some more staff make their way past the nurse and police to attend to the situation.

NURSE: "Well, that will be today's new arrival. We used to have a long waiting list of people to get into Sunset Acres. Every time someone dies a room is freed up and the list has gotten so short now. If you excuse me, I'll need to go do some final prep work for our new resident. It'll take them about fifteen minutes to walk from the vehicle to reception..."

POLICE #1: "Thank you for your time, ma'am. Have a nice day."

POLICE #2: "I hope we don't see you again. Wait that came out wrong. I mean, I hope no one else dies here so that I don't have to come see you again. Because you seem like a nice lady, I could definitely see us spending..."

POLICE #1: "Let's go!"


The police officers head out the front door to their parked vehicle, passing the confused elderly gentleman in his underpants who is slowly making his way into the building with the support of other staff. Driving away they take note of how barely adequate Sunset Acres looks, and it's only because of them looking outside that they notice a small youngster with awkardly fitting clothing spraying some kind of long, tube-like object on to the walls that mark the boundaries between Sunset Acres and the real world.

POLICE #1: "Graffiti artist!! Get him!!"

POLICE #2: "Yeah, no-one draws sausages and meatballs on walls around here without a permit! And I've got the only one!!"

POLICE #1: "I keep telling you, your home made 'urban artist permit' will not protect you if I catch you drawing one of those."

POLICE #2: "But you are on patrol with me, so I always know where you are! A perfect plan!"


They fire up the sirens immediately, and the graffito quickly sprints away as fast as his excessively baggy trousers let him, heading straight back to Sunset Acres as he tries to stop his clothes from falling off. The police give chase in the car, pulling a rapid fifteen point turn before accelerating to catch up and chasing the graffito down at high speed in a limited speed zone, chasing down the graffito directly into the frot entrance of the building where the new arrival and several staff are still entering. People dive in every direction as everyone tries to get out of the way of potential disaster...

SCREEEEEEEEEEECH!!

POLICE #2: "STRIIIIIIKE!!"

Amidst the chaos of screams, bodies and luggage being sent in every direction despite how physics work, everyone seems to lose track of what is happening. The screech of brakes subsides, the siren is eventually turned off due to how unnecessary it is due to the fact that the residents can't really hear it anyway over the sound of breakfast TV showing on the highest volume in every room. And as people make their way to their feet, the police officers step out and grab the graffito by the collar and cuff him.

POLICE #2: "Gotcha!"

GRAFFITO: "I admit it! It was me! I did it!"

POLICE #1: "Good work. Read him his rights...."

POLICE #2: "Uh... I think I lost my flashcards with that bit on."

POLICE #1: "Ah geez, again?"

POLICE #2: "They're really small!"

POLICE #1: "Well, we'll...... oh...."


The police officer trails off as he sees the bloody scene at reception. The primary care nurse is clearly dead, her bloody corpse showing signs of being beaten to death by heavy objects as blood pools around the reception area. It is very obvious that this is no accident.

POLICE #2: "Oh no, another terrible accident."

POLICE #1: "I.... what? This woman has clearly been beaten to death!"

POLICE #2: "Accidentally?"

POLICE #1: "NO!!"

POLICE #2: "Oh.... theeeen?"

POLICE #1: "This is a murder."

POLICE #2: "For realsies?"

POLICE #1: "For super realsies."

POLICE #2: "Oh damn!"


A meal trolley seems to wheel away of it's own accord as the police make the calls they need to make, while many of the residents enjoy making scrapbooks and playing hardcore extreme ultimate dominos.... which doesn't seem any different from regular dominos.

Death stalks the halls of Sunset Acres as residents keep dying in mysterious and now also gruesome circumstances. But why? What could anyone possibly want from a retirement community where most people go to bed by 8pm because they are too tired? Why would anyone want to terrorise this idyllic... wait, that's pushing the definition a bit... this acceptably comfortable and reasonably priced senior menagerie?

Well, I don't have the answers for you. Damn Millennials, always wanting reasonable answers! Find out for yourself!!

Hmmm, voting for someone not in the game may prove you an old resident.
