Mafia In Black


Introduction


It was just like any other day in the rural small town... until the bodies turned up. They had obviously been murdered, and quite gruesomely at that. At each crime scene, a strange green fluid can get present near the corpse. However, shortly after the murders were reported, three mysterious federal agents turned up, claiming to be FBI, and ordered the local law enforcement to stand down. The local sheriffs and deputies did, but a small group of remaining townspeople decided to take matters into their own hands to get to the bottom of both the murders and the agents...

Of course, these "FBI" agents were really Men In Black, arriving to ensure the townspeople didn't uncover the truth of an alien attack and to apprehend the aliens responsible for these atrocities. Normally, maintaining secrecy is easy, but with a group of people so suspicious and determined, who knows what will happen this time around...

What Is Mafia?


Mafia is a game of deception and intrigue. Classically, it pits the town versus the mafia - the uninformed majority versus the informed minority - and they progressively eliminate each other until one faction wins. Modifications have added other factions, such as cultists and aliens, to mix things up a little. During the day, players vote on who to lynch based on the dialogue and the actions of the previous night. During the night, various players take actions to further their faction's cause. This is also the time when, generally, the Mafia has to make their kill.

Aliens


The Aliens came to our planet with the full intent of taking us over. This small town is to be only the first step on a path to world domination. They possess a factional kill each night. The Aliens win by gaining a majority over the combined forces of the Town and the MIBs.

- Alien Psychotrooper: The Psychotrooper passively causes all non-MIB investigative roles to return random results in the night. The MIB investigative roles are immune due to their advanced training rendering the Psychotrooper's influence useless on them.

- Alien Fabricator: The Fabricator distributes fake tinfoil hats in the night. Unlike real tinfoil hats, which block the influence of the psychotrooper, fake hats do absolutely nothing.

- Assimilative Alien: The Assimilative Alien has taken such great pains to hide amongst the humans that they investigate as "Not Alien" to the Conspiracy Theorist (listed below), making them similar to a Godfather.

- Alien Goon: The muscle of the group. This member will likely be performing the factional nightkill.

- Alien Sympathizer: A traitorous human who joined the aliens' cause. This role cannot perform the factional nightkill, and investigates as innocent to non-MIB investigators. (This role may be added if enough players join)

Town


The Town is comprised of some suspicious and disgruntled individuals. They want to see the mysterious murderers brought to justice but also dislike how the agents seem to want them to know as little as possible about the murders. The Town wins by eliminating the Aliens and exposing the existence of the MIBs and Aliens.

- Conspiracy Theorist: Formerly regarded as a paranoid outcast, this resident is now the town's goto authority on... whatever's going on here. Investigates players as "Alien" or "Not Alien".

- Neighborhood Watch Guy: The head (and sole member) of the local neighborhood watch, this resident has decided to take up the mantle as a kind of unofficial local law enforcement. Investigates as "Town" or "Not Town".

- Tinfoil Craftsman: Paranoid at the possiblility of some sort of supernatural mind influence, this resident has taken to crafting and secretly distributing tinfoil hats to different residents. If a player receives one of these hats and is an investigative role, they will be impervious to the psychotrooper's influence.

- Mailman: The Mailman's role is just delivering messages. This resident simply selects two players, then one of them is prompted for a message to the other, which may or may not contain factual or relevant information. Believe the info you receive at your own peril.

- Villager: The villager is just a concerned resident, whose power is their vote and their wits. All villagers are guaranteed to possess the former.

Men In Black (MIB)


The Men In Black, or MIBs, are a secret government agency tasked with keeping the existence of aliens hidden from public view. As the murders that took place at this small town were transparently alien in origin, the MIBs have been sent in to deal with the threat before it spreads. The MIBs win by eliminating the Aliens and covering up the existence of the MIBs and of aliens.

- MIB Role Cop: The Role Cop can investigate any player will return the name of that player's role. Their advanced training renders them immune to the psychotrooper's influence, thus making them the only early-game source of reliable intelligence. Of course, that would involve exposing themselves...

- MIB Compulsive Janitor: The Compulsive Janitor passively prevents any roles from being revealed while alive, making him critical to the cover-up. Should the Janitor be defeated, the remaining MIBs will have an X-shot Neuralyzer (where X = remaining MIBs) to cause any dead aliens or MIBs to appear as Villagers upon death.

- MIB One-shot Bulletproof Bodyguard: The Bodyguard can protect any player and take the kill for them. In fact, thanks to their bulletproofness, they can take TWO kills in total.

Rules

1. Each Day will last ~48 hours, and each night will last ~24 hours.
2. Upon death, you are allowed one death post, and you may not reveal any game information in it. You may not post anymore in the thread until after the game has ended.
3. You may not share anything from your Role PM in the public chat. All discussion of the game must be kept to this thread or to the designated factional chats.
4. The MIBs and Aliens will have private factional chats.
5. All votes and unvotes must be in bold, or else they will not be counted. Votes must be formatted as [Lynch] (Target). The "Lynch" may be replaced with some other verb of the voter's choice. You are free to vote to lynch no one.
6. Unless you are dead and making your solitary death post, you may not post during the night phase.
7. Missing two votes in a row or missing two Night Actions in a row (assuming you have one) will result in your removal from the game and probable replacement. This is also the only time when the Night phase will be extended past 24 hours.
8. In the event of a tie, all tied parties will be lynched.

As of this post, signups are now closed. You should each be receiving a role PM before too long, and N0 will start fairly soon.

Also, as there are not enough players, there will be no Alien Sympathizer.

Night 0




As night fell over the small town, most of the residents were sound asleep. But a few were awake, prepared to defend the town using their particular skills. Elsewhere, the aliens were conspiring to take over the town. Then somewhere else, the MIBs were planning on how to stop them...





This is a Night Phase.
It will last ~24 hours, but may be extended should technical difficulties (read: MIBs and Aliens not getting on Discord) arise. Send in all your NAs before the night ends, or you may inadvertently idle for the night.

Day 1




As the sun came up over the small town, the residents were quick to look for what may have occurred during the night. Unfortunately, the murderers had once again gotten to one of their own, but they couldn't uncover anything about them, as the mysterious agents had secured the crime scene already...

BidoofFTW is dead. His role was not revealed.


This is a Day Phase.
It will last ~48 hours, and during that time you are free to post in order to discuss the events of the game. You may also vote during this phase, and as a reminder all votes must be in bold, or they will not be counted.

Not sure if the flavour text is meant to include hints or not, but it seems to imply that Doof is with the town not MIB.

I have a suggestion. Might it be worth claiming the tinfoil hats that are out there?
So the fabricator can psyduck with them? I think not.

[Vote] jdthebud

Also, can we have some clarification on how the MIB's win and lose conditions work? idgi

Are you saying that you think the fabbed ones would replace the real ones? If so, then yeah it's not a good idea, but it would be nice to get confirmation on that if possible.

As far as the MIB win condition, my interpretation is that if someone if revealed as an MIB or alien, they lose.

Anyway, I hope to see more people in here soon. GP is a cool guy, but I don't want to play with just him, lol.

Especially because I've caught you already ;)
You know better than to suggest what you did.
