Just here for the pie

Mafia: Lollerific Edition
Filled to the brim with mindfuckery! (Well, maybe)

READ: New rules from the last Mafia will be bolded, and may be subject to change prior to the game starting.

Welcome to the guessing game of murder, mystery, and statistics. ;o

Players are all in a town that is infiltrated by a Mafia family. Dead bodies start turning up and everyone becomes a suspect. There are three main parties; one Mafia family and the townspeople as well as the cult and maybe more.

** HOW IT WORKS **
Players receive roles at the start of the game after the mayor is elected so as to combat the "I'm boondock, vote me" aspect. The only roles distributed are the Mafia and "lil-Inferno" role. Roles fall into two alignments: some will be mafia, the majority will be townspeople, and there may be some third party roles independent from everyone else with certain victory conditions. During the night, members of the mafia kill the townspeople. The Mafia will know who all the other Mafia are in their family, but the townspeople have no additional information.

The game is split into two sections, Day and Night. (Game Time, not according to the real world.) The game may start in either section, depending on balance issues.

-- NIGHT
During the night section, the Mafia strikes. Townspeople may also have actions to perform as part of their special roles as well, which are explained in detail below. There is usually a time-limit imposed on the night phase. If you have powers to use and neglect to do so, too bad, you lose them for that night, and may even suffer consequences for not doing so based on your role.

The Cult Leader may not invite political roles (ie, the Mayor or bodyguards) or Mafia into their cult.

Night ends with a posted report of the killings and various other actions. Killings will include "subtle" clues identifying killers -- or red herrings to throw you off. Clues may be taken from anywhere - anything and everything is fair game. All sorts of information is up for grabs, including usernames, signatures, avatars, profiles, the way the clue is written itself, etc. Generally, some or all clues will be revealed at the end of the game.

-- DAY
Democracy rules by day in form of a vote. All players (Mafia included) gather for a "town meeting" to interpret clues and discuss amongst themselves who might be Mafia. Every player (including Mafia) may place a vote to select a player to be lynched and killed off. Players with special roles should be careful in persuading others to vote without revealing themselves.

Voting Regulations
- Votes must be placed for specific individuals only, no variable voting (ie, not "whatever will create a tie" or "biggest bandwagon").
- Votes must be clear ("I vote X" is always good)... if your vote is ambiguous it may not be counted. Putting bold or italics around your vote is a big help. I won't be offended if you pretend I'm blind.
- You may not vote for yourself, dead players, or people who are not playing.
- You may abstain and I will factor you in for the day's vote total.
- Once the vote is "decided" (either by majority or time up), someone is lynched and their alignment and role revealed. If there are ties between multiple players after deliberation, both (or all) of the suspects are lynched at my discretion.
- In case of a tie, the player with the FIRST vote cast earlier will be lynched, or done by use of a randomizer at my discretion.
- If the Mayor role is in play, the vote for a lynch on the first day is replaced by a general election of the Mayor. Mafia dons and "lil-Inferno" may not run for Mayor.

-- VICTORY
The day and night cycles repeat until one side is victorious.

The town wins when all mafia have been lynched and the cult leader is dead.
The mafia wins when they outnumber the townspeople AND the other Mafia family is completely eliminated. (they would outvote and overpower them.)
The cult wins when both mafia families are dead and they outvote the town.

** You are allowed to talk to other players through external means. You may encounter (or engage in) deception, conspiracies, and trickery. We take no responsiblity for broken trust and shattered friendships - outside communication takes place at your own risk. Some well-played impersonations can dramatically alter the outcome of the game. :) **

** Regarding death: Once you are killed, you "MAY" talk, but your posts will be deleted if they violate any of the following: (as determined by me)
1. The post is annoying or just not funny.
2. The post may alter the course of the game in any way.
3. They violate any of SEN's rules.
4. I feel like it.
**

** SIGNING UP **
If the game has not started, you may sign up by posting in this thread, PMing me, or otherwise contacting me and I will add you to the list.

You must meet all of the following conditions to play:
1. A non-default avatar is required to play. If you wish to play, make sure you have chosen an original avatar.
2. If you do not intend on playing because you do not receive a special role, please refrain from signing up. Useless and inactive townies ruin the balance and ultimately, the game itself.
3. If you plan on being away from the game for more than 3 days at a time during the game, it is best that you do not play.

If the game has already started, you may request to be added to the list for the next game.
When signing up or while playing, you may request automatic sign-up for future games. If you wish to engage in automatic signups, please tell me so when you sign up. I will not assume that you want it.

Fairly simple. I need as many sign-ups as possible. The more people that sign up, the funner the game should be (and more special roles will be created). There is no maximum amount of players.

If you have any questions, PM me.

Number of roles depends on how many sign up! This is not a complete list.

Forced 1-game leave: NO ONE!
You end up here by not voting, only voting once, neglecting your role and powers, or otherwise breaking the rules. I did not look through all the pages of the previous game's topic to see who posted how many times. If you feel you were booted for inactivity but was active through posting, send me a PM linking to your posts in the previous game and I will allow you to play.

Sitting out: -
Appears inactive, but may sign up: NO ONE YET!

** ROLES **
(All roles are listed for reference purposes. They may or may not be in use this game.)

TOWNSPERSON - The average, ordinary townsperson. Their limited powers include the power of persuasion, power of intellect (clue interpretation), and power of the vote.
Power: Dodge - (Only regulars townspeople can use dodge this game) Townies in this game are granted the power of "dodge". To use it, they must PM me at night. They will dodge one hit placed on them that night and escape death. This power may only be used once per game. USE IT WISELY.

MAFIA - They've come to the town and wish to take it for themselves. They are ideologically against the townspeople and cult.
Power: Assailant - Once per night the Mafia can attack a person of their choice, removing one night life from that person.

MAFIA CONSIGLIERE - Functions like a normal Mafia (see above) but if they die the Mafia Don will be vulnerable.

MAFIA DON - The head of each Mafia family who is revealed at the beginning of the game and generally coordinates their Mafia family, but cannot be killed by any means until the consigliere of their family is dead. He cannot send in his own hit unless Killing Spree is announced.
Power: Killing Spree - The Mafia Don has 3 (number may change depending on number of signups) total hits that they can use during the game. They may use a maximum of two at night.

LIL-INFERNO - God, and yet mortal. lil-Inferno is prohibited from using his God-like powers and only has one night life. Doctors cannot protect lil-Inferno, and the cult leader cannot recruit him. lil-Inferno also cannot run for mayor. Like many passive townies, lil-Inferno will vote with the person who he thinks has the most convincing argument. lil-Inferno will automatically die on night 3 of testicular cancer if he wasn't lynched or killed prior to that night. :awesome:

BELL RINGER - May end day prematurely at any time by posting so in the topic or PMing me. All votes placed after he rings the bell are discounted. The vote count is left as is and the current leader(s) is lynched. He may only use this power once per game, and otherwise functions as a normal townsperson. The power cannot be used during the mayor elections.

BIOLOGIST - The biologist has discovered a virus that zombifies anyone injected with it. Once per night the biologist can inject the virus into someone, and that someone will gain the role of "zombie" alongside their original role after 2 day/night cycles, and will be notified that they were injected. If the zombie is visited by a doctor before the infection fully manifests itself, it will be removed entirely. The infection is not necessarily a maleficent thing.

BOONDOCK SAINT - Vigilante(s) aligned with the town who gets to kill one person each night based on their own personal suspicions.

CONTRACTOR - Each day the contractor PMs the host a person's name whose head will be put up for bounty the following night, and only the following night. The name will be announced publicly after the day is over. The person who kills the target that night will gain the reward of an additional night life (not sure about this reward), although this does not work for the radioactive, who will just kill the person and not receive an additional life. If multiple people attack this target, the first one to PM me receives the reward. The person the bounty is placed on doesn't necessarily have to be killed.

CULT LEADER - The cult leader acts as a third-party role. Each night the cult leader sends me a PM of a person to invite into their cult, and that person will be given the cult leader's name and an invitation into the cult, which they may accept or decline. The cult leader may not invite a Mafia or political role (Mayor or bodyguard), and will be told that the person denied their invitation. The cult is a purely ideological role, and has no collective power except for the power of the vote, and the special roles of their members. The cult will win if they outvote everyone else and no other factions have killing power. If the cult leader dies, then every recruited member will commit suicide, like a real cult. The cult leader has a regenerating 2 night lives.

DEATH PACT - Two players that die together. They can only be killed at night if they are BOTH hit in the same night. However, if one of them is lynched, the other one dies automatically. They both know each other's role, and if one is invited to the cult, both will be invited, and if one is zombified by the biologist, both will be.

DETECTIVE - Each and every night, the detective gets to investigate one player and they learn of that person's alignment and role. The trick is persuading others in their votes when they learn of special role holders.

DOCTOR - Each and every night, the doctor may save one person from death. Should someone attack that person, the doctor will keep them alive. Doctors may protect each other, but may not protect themselves. The mafia may target the same person multiple times to get a kill regardless of a Doctor's protection (ie, kill, save, kill). If the doctor uses their ability on someone injected by the biologist, their infection will be cured.

HARLOT - Each night the harlot visits one person and "negates their night action ;)". If the harlot doesn't use their night power their pimp will kill them (regardless of if the pimp wants to or not, it's like the harlot being struck by a lightning bolt). If the harlot visits someone infected by the biologist's virus and it hasn't fully developed yet then they will catch it. If the harlot visits someone and the harlot has the biologist's virus not fully developed yet then their customer will catch it If the pimp dies the harlot will function as a normal townie. The harlot and pimp know each others' identities.

MAYOR - The mayor is elected at the start of the game to "lead" the town. Any player may be elected mayor, including mafia and other special roles. He gains the following powers:
- Additional voting weight during the day varying on number of votes alive. (his normal 1 vote +10% of total potential votes, rounded up after 4, ie, with 14 total people will have 2 votes, and with 15 will have 3 votes)
- May declare EITHER two (2) days of "double lynchings" OR one (1) day of "triple lynching".
- Protection of bodyguards (because his role isn't hidden, making him a target). So long as one or more bodyguards are alive, the mayor may not be targetted at night. (However, he can always be lynched.) If not obvious, he gains the benefits of knowing the identities of his bodyguards (less Mafia suspects).

BODYGUARD - The bodyguard(s) are randomly selected from normal townspersons after a mayor is elected. So long as at least one bodyguard is alive, the mayor may not be targetted at night. They also gain the benefits of knowing who the other bodyguard(s) are (less Mafia suspects).

PARDONER - The Pardoner can remove one-third (number may change) of the votes on a person after votes are tallied, rounded up (ie, 8 votes on a person and 3 are removed). He may only use this power 2 (number may change) times per game, done so anonymously by PMing me.

PIMP - The pimp has control over the harlot and can work with them to decide who they visit. If the harlot doesn't use their night action the pimp will kill them for not getting him his money. If the pimp is killed, the harlot will function as a regular townsperson. The harlot and pimp know each other's identities.

RADIOACTIVE - Has SEVEN (7) night lives.
He may spend one life per night, if he so chooses, to do one of the following:
- Kill another player.
- Inflict two players with radiation sickness. Their powers are cancelled for the night.
He may not spend his last life to use a power.
He also loses one life at the start of each day. (in addition to the lives spent on powers) This loss of a life cannot be prevented by any other roles. This means that he eventually must slip away. Tragic, better work fast! :(
If he is attacked by a lynched Psycho during Day, he will survive and be revealed.

THEORETICAL PHYSICIST - Spends the first 2 day/night cycles constructing a time machine. After this, he may reverse time ONE FULL DAY/NIGHT CYCLE. Everything that happened in this time period is undone, except the time machine itself. Mind erasure is also not performed. This may only be used once per game.

ZOMBIE - The night after a Zombie dies (by any method), he may rise from the grave to kill one person of his choice. He may ONLY use this power the night immediately after he dies. Use of the power is optional, and the Zombie will be revealed as the person's role before the biologist targeted them until AFTER he uses (or chooses not to use) his power as a zombie. This game, only the biologist can "make" zombies. (See biologist role).

Number of roles depends on how many sign up! This is not a complete list.

I fill the role of "God". I decide tie votes and whatever cases will be necessary. Depending on how I have to crunch the numbers, I may be the collective target of the mafia for the first night. Divine intervention via lightning bolts may occur. If you are not monotheistic, you are now. If you have any suggestions, let me know. To add to the mindfuck, I will be playing AND hosting this game. More details later.

So if you're basically going to iterate a new version of mafia from the previous game with one or two rules, I'm out.

Maybe sign me up after about 10 games when it doesn't fail harder than a percussion band made up out of quadrupole amputees and leprosy sufferers.

At the very least, have a SET TIME at which DAY and NIGHT finish/start.

I learned a lot from hosting the last game. This one will be much better.

Voting mayor before roles are given is auto-fail. Since then its just a popularity contest and has nothing to actually do with game itself.

Edit:
also...

You may be right, but I said rules were subject to change.

I thought there was a list of next hosts. I'm not going to play this, and I find it disrespectful that you hosted another game while knowing there are other people waiting to host.

You do realize it's pretty much gonna be like the last game, but with some rules patched up and a few different roles, right?

Those also aren't all the roles ;o.

I order you to forgive yourself!

Can I have the turtle role? If people try to hit me, I just have to enter my shell and wait until they get tired. Then, I bite their fingers off.
