Mafia!
« on: 23 Oct 2007, 16:29 »

EDIT: HEY. If you're not playing the game, kindly don't post once we get started. Feel free to read and PM comments or whatever, but don't mess up the game for others. Be nice!

Ok, I looked it up on the search function, and it's been over a month since the last Werewolves game ended and I was curious if you guys would like to try a slightly different game called Mafia. It's almost the same as Werewolves, but instead of just having villagers and werewolves, in Mafia there are villagers, mafia members, a sheriff, and a medic. There's also the option of the village idiot. The sheriff asks the narrator every round whether or not a certain member is in the mafia, which is answered with a yes or a no. The medic tells the narrator every round who they want to save from attack, including themselves. The village idiot, if you guys want to use that character, tries to confuse everyone on purpose.

Does this sound like a good idea to you guys? If so, I'll take the first 15 18 people who want to play!

Players!
1. Boro_Bandito
2. Slick
3. Dark_Flame
4. ampersandwitch
5. RallyMonkey
6. Misconception

7. Mberan42
8. Blue_Kitty
9. KTkat

10. JimmytheSquid
11. Eris

12. I_is_Grammar
13. Thegreatbuddha
14. LordNagash
15. IronOxide
16. Gemmwah
17. Tyler
18. Ballard


I will update this list regularly.

I've played it online and in person before, and it works pretty well online. (More fun with a group of people in person, but hey.)

FYI, I'll narrate this round and then randomly assign you guys when we get all 15. (Sorry, Boro, no calling.)

Can I be the werewolf?

I'm armed with silver bullets, wouldn't want you to die, my friend.

And to everyone, this game will get finished, I promise. If people do not respond to things within a reasonable amount of time, your character will die a tragic death. Or something. Wouldn't want things to get boring. ^_^\

P.S. I expanded the list, so 3 MORE PEOPLE CAN PLAY.

And here are the rules, just so everyone's clear:

Every "night" the town goes to "sleep". During this time all main characters PM me their choices. If you are Mafia, I will tell you who your partners are and you shall discuss who you want to kill and then PM me your decision. (If you feel like coming up with how they die, feel free to suggest something, or you can let me do it.) If you are the Sheriff, you will PM me a name of someone (only one name) who you suspect is in the mafia and I will answer you with a yes or a no. If you are the Medic, you will PM me the name of the person you wish to save from attack, which can include yourself. (You will not be told who the target is, you have to guess for yourself.) If you are the village idiot or a townsperson, you don't PM me anything, just wait until the round starts. When I PM you your role, I will repeat the instructions for your role for clarity.

When the round starts, we will discover who died and how. If someone is saved, you will only find out that there was an attempt on someone's life, but I won't say who was attacked. Either way, this is when the townspeople band together and try to decide who is in the mafia. In this thread, you post who you think is in the mafia. If you suspect more than one person, you can voice that, but please only accuse one person (for trial purposes). The first person to get 5 accusations (2 when there's less than 5 people) will be put on trial. During the trial, the accused will give their testimony for their defence and then the townspeople will vote Guilty or Not Guilty. Majority rules and if found guilty, the accused is sentenced to death (removed from the game), and if found innocent, they are allowed to continue to play and we move to the next round. We play until either all the mafia members are found guilty or the mafia kills off everyone else.

As soon as we get 20 people I will put your names in a generator and randomly assign you your roles and PM them to you. I'll put the town to sleep and then awake them when I get all the key role responses.

Goodluck Linds, enjoy coming up with ways of killing people.

Edit: I would also suggest that this be stickied, it makes it easier on all involved.

Yeah, it's a completely different atmosphere and not quite as fun. And you can't see any shifty eyes or blushing.

It was a quiet night in Nowheresville, so when the sun rose, everyone woke up refreshed and chipper. Mrs. E in particular was quite cheerful. After her morning tea and bisuit, she ventured outside to work on her gardening. While crossing her back yard towards the shed, she noticed something peculiar leaking out under the door. When she got closer, she noticed the liquid was red and sticky. To make sure it wasn't a prank that the neighbor's spoild brat children weren't playing on her, she slowly opened the door. When she fully absorbed the horror that was in front of her. One of her neighbors ran over to see what was causing the commotion when he saw Mrs. E frozen in shock in front of a man that was hanging from the ceiling of her shed, held up only by the large hook that was shoved up under his jaw. Before she fainted, Mrs. E uttered, "No... not Ballard."

Town, it's up to you decide. Who is responsible for this crime? Accuse away!

Alright, I think this game is unbalanced in the favour of the mafia.
As such, I move that we vote the KTKat to the lynching station post-haste, since see seems keen to blame poor old Phil.

P.S. Can we play this for real in Toronto? Pretty please?
