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

Players all members of a town infiltrated by the Mafia. Murders start happening and everyone is a suspect. If the Townspeople manage to lynch all the Mafia out, they win. Otherwise, the Mafia will kill everyone in the town and claim victory.

How It Works
The game is split into two sections, Day and Night. (Game Time, not according to the real world.)

Players will receive roles via Private Message. There will be x Mafia members, and the rest will be Townies. Each Mafia member kills one person per night. The mafia will know who all the other mafia members are.

The game begins at Night with the first round of killings. During the night, other players may perform special actions, which will be explained with the other special roles. Night ends with me posting a report of who was killed, perhaps with a *subtle* clue identifying a mafia member -- or a red herring to throw you off. Clues may be taken from anywhere: Usernames, Signatures, Avatars, Profiles, etc. The clues will vary upon the progress of the game - if the Townspeople are doing very well, expect bad clues and red herrings. Likewise, if the Mafia is about to win, expect more obvious and helpful clues.

Once the killings are done, it becomes Daytime, where all players (Mafia and Townies alike) hold a "town meeting" to discuss amongst themselves who might be the mafia. Votes are placed and one person is lynched and killed off. Players holding special roles must be careful in persuading other members to vote without revealing themselves. Once the vote is decided (either by majority or time up), the player is lynched and their alignment revealed.

This process repeats until one side is left standing.

** Talking to others about the game outside of the game is NOT prohibited. Expect deception, 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. :) **

** ROLES **
TOWNSPERSON - An ordinary townsperson. Their only powers include the power of persuasion and power of the vote.

MAFIA - They've invaded the town, and they each kill someone every night. They know the identity of the other Mafia members.

DETECTIVE - Each and every night, the detective gets to investigate one player. They learn that person's alignment and role. The trick is persuading the town everyone in their votes when they learn of special role holders. If the mafia kills them, their results for that night may be revealed at my discretion.

DOCTOR - Each and every night, the doctor chooses one person to follow around. Should the mafia attack that person, the doctor will save their life. Doctors that are both attacked may not protect each (in such a case, mafia attacks are assumed to take place at the same time).

PSYCHO - If the Psycho is lynched, he gets to take a player of his choice with him to the grave. If the Psycho is attacked by the mafia, the Psycho dies but the mafia member is "injured", and cannot attack the next night.
*note: this role has changed in anticipation of the next round.

BOONDOCK SAINT - A vigilante aligned with the town, but they get to kill one person each night based on their own personal suspicions. The Boondock Saint may not strike until the second night. Should the Boondock Saint target the Mafia, the Mafia kill goes first.

VILLAGE IDIOT - The Village Idiot is technically town-aligned, but he wants to get himself lynched by the town. By doing so, he receives 100 minerals. Since we aren't playing for minerals this round, there won't be a Village Idiot, but I'm writing him in for future reference.

If the name is striked out, the person is dead. When the game starts, the types and numbers of each special role present in the game will be posted.

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.

Sep 23 2007, 7:31 pm Moose Post #5

There's a plethora of roles I could and should add. We can only have so many. :P

Que Sera, Sera.

Town psycho is the best though, it adds more thinking to who to pick because pick the wrong guy to kill and your dead o_o

Sep 23 2007, 7:36 pm WoAHorde Post #7

Add me oh wonderful tyrant. :P


Sep 23 2007, 7:41 pm FatalException Post #8

Sure, why not. The last time I played this was at recess in 6th grade. :P


Sep 23 2007, 7:43 pm JamaL Post #9

Count me in, and add the town psycho.

Honestly, you shouldn't have a plethora of roles. It confuses people, and the game is less fun. If it's simple, and everybody gets it, the game will run smoothly. I like what we have now, plus the psycho. Also, there should be one Mafia for every 10 townspersons.

I'll join please. :)

Uh... Would anyone care to explain the role of the town psycho? When I played this back in the day, there was only mafia, townspeople, and doctor.

Que Sera, Sera.

If a mafia attacks the town psycho, the mafia member AND the psycho dies.

Sep 23 2007, 8:18 pm Moose Post #13

Town psycho is listed... I'll decide on whether or not he gets used when I have to start crunching numbers.

Sep 23 2007, 8:22 pm JaFF Post #14

I'm in.

Not particularily, given that no amount of thinking will have any predictable effect on how likely a hit is to kill you.

Moose, get rid of town psycho. It is a total failure of a role, Toa is the only one who likes it. Not that those two things are necessariy related. :O If you don't do it, I shall make your future mafia games a living hell! Btw, I'm glad to see you found the wikipedia on the mafia game like Laser and I. If you want to know about some roles that I came up with and haven't used yet, then send me a pm about it. I have some cool ones. Maybe you could do the online version of the town drunk and make it "town 1337" and he can only speak in 1337. (that's just a really small sample, and a very simple one)
