Aristocrat's Mafia #4: Realistic Mafia

Ever play mafia and think to yourself "Hey, this is unrealistic, shouldn't the henchmen be uninformed pawns being ordered around by the top brass?"

This game will fix that for you!


1) Players receive roles when the game starts.

2) Roles are assigned by

3) The Godfather knows who his henchmen are. All other players are ignorant.

4) The game alternates between day and night (game time, not real time). The intro covers the first day, and the actual game begins at night.

5) Players may communicate in whatever way they like. Feel free to lie, cheat, and trick people in order to come out on top.

6) Dead/exiled players and non-players cannot post while the game is running in a way that potentially influences the game. Sharing information with any active players through any other means is also frowned upon. If you wish to have a "last will," some final words you will share in the event of your death or exile, then provide them to me via PM before then and I will incorporate them into the post.

7) Handing out information just because you died or don't like your team (i.e. a Godfather listing off the remaining Mafia) is not allowed (violation results in list of shame, etc).

8) One may not request or volunteer screenshots, videos, etc. of another role screen or someone's password via the thread, a PM, or any other method. This includes screenshots of messages from me which confirm, depict, or otherwise suggest your role or alignment, as well as private messages and communication between players. This also includes extortion outside the game, or any other method used to acquire accurate information. In addition, arrangements which involve backing information with something of value are not allowed. The game is intended to be won via behavioral analysis, strategic planning, and praying a lot. It can be assumed anything which undermines this intention is not allowed. You will auto-lose if I find out you've been partaking in these ancient acts of evil. (For clarification, sharing the text that a PM supposedly contained is not in violation of this rule.)




Signing Up and General Notes

If you have any questions, PM me or post in the thread.


Townsperson - Each night, the townspeople can rally together and protect the life of one player. A player who is protected by more than 50% of the remaining playerbase is immune to a night hit.
Protect: Attempts to protect a player from attack. This is effective if and only if more than 50% of the remaining players target the same person.


Mafia Henchman - A negligent member of the underground organization recruited by the Godfather, the henchman is unaware of the identities of his fellow operatives or even his own status as a mafia member, thanks to a special amnesic cocktail forged by a mad chemist.
Protect: Attempts to protect a player from attack. This is effective if and only if more than 50% of the remaining players target the same person.

(The Henchman is, for all intents and purposes other than calculating victory conditions, identical to a townsperson.)

Mafia Godfather - The head of operations in the mafia family, the Godfather is the mastermind who personally recruited all of his subordinates - and thus, knows all of their identities. It is up to him whether or not he contacts his pawns to bring them into the picture.
Hit: Targets a specific townsperson and brutally murders them at night if they are not protected by over half the town.
Succession: If the Godfather is exiled, he contacts another mafia member and has him take over his mantle as the new Godfather. This person gains all the old abilities and knowledge possessed by the previous Godfather.

Specific mafia mechanics rundown:
  • All mafia are selected at the beginning of the game. However, they are all negligent except for the Godfather, and will each receive a Townsperson PM as any normal townie.
  • The Godfather is given a list of his fellow mafia members. He can choose to voluntarily contact them or leave them in the dark.
  • If the Godfather is exiled, he contacts the next living mafia member on the list and has him take over the mantle as the new Godfather (i.e. the next person in line receives a Godfather role PM from me).
  • If no one dies at night, the Godfather is revealed.

Since everyone is asking for weird positions on the player list, why not use a hash table?

Win by luck, lose by skill.

It has been brought to my attention that two currently signed-up members of the game have participated in ancient acts of evil with respect to the last mafia game (i.e. lil-Inferno and Azrael), communicating with living players while they themselves are not playing, and attempting to influence the game. Should a temporary ban be enacted as punitive measures, or would the majority prefer I let it slide?

Ban them!
Also, ban Demon.

Put up a poll and take a vote.

If I wanted to influence the outcome of the previous game, I would have. I could have said any number of things to Inferno, Sacrieur, or even yourself to prevent the Mafia from winning. I told Inferno exactly what to do to win—after it was too late for him to make use of the information. Any other comments made as a spectator were either irrelevant, vague, or otherwise generally unhelpful.

That being said, if I feel like commenting on the game, I will. I never signed-up for that game, but if you feel compelled to be as pedantic as possible about the rules I never agreed to, I should point out the fact that I didn't break any of them either. Nothing states non-players shouldn't comment on the game outside this website, and even if it did, what difference would it make? There are two separate rules which state dead players cannot post anything in the shoutbox, or anywhere else, about the state of the game (ie, anything which could possibly influence the game). For reference:

-No speaking to people after you die, either in the thread, over PM, in the shoutbox, on Skype, etc. in a way that'll influence the game. If you want a "last will" I suggest you set it up with townsmember you trust before you die.
-I will allow people not playing to post, but don't be dicks and don't influence the game...same in the shoutbox.

However, you didn't seem too concerned about this.

I find your suggestion that a non-player should be punished for not breaking any rules to be both strange and hypocritical, considering you actually signed-up and agreed to follow all the rules, and then you broke them numerous times at your convenience.

Anyways, to demonstrate that I'm not simply trying to plead a case: I withdraw my sign-up.

Good luck to the remaining players.

TheHappy115 -- Yea, thats the issue. Thanks. It would also explain why my deleted map couldn't get updated. Updated version reduced collision on units (only thing added) since was dodging game (players collide with each other)
[2024-5-28. : 5:26 am]
Ultraviolet -- If so, I'd just focus on getting them on and then you can link to that in the showcase thread for your maps
[2024-5-28. : 5:25 am]
Ultraviolet -- I can't upload my EUD maps, I think the DLDB has some issue with handling them. Are you trying to upload EUD maps?
[2024-5-28. : 2:06 am]
TheHappy115 -- Its been awhile but ever since I requested one of the Maps I posted to be deleted since I couldn't delete it myself (or update it), I haven't been able to upload any more maps. Any reason for that?
