The Asylum
The Aeternal Underground Asylum is home to hundreds of psychiatric patients who are in the process of being cured or are going through rehabilitation so that one day, they might be able to leave the AUA and have a somewhat normal life. However, not everything that happens within the AUA is... well... it's not all legal, strictly speaking.

Over the years, certain patients have shown a number of signs - however inconsistent - of heightened neural activity. After members of the staff began to take note of these patients with a heightened state of awareness, the director of the asylum decided to finally dig into the research that he'd put off for so long. Thus began a series of inhumane tests and trials all designed to pull the supposed latent abilities from within the already insane patients. However, not everyone would go down without a fight.

In this game of mafia, you'll take up the roles of either staff, patient, or apparition. Within the game, a group of overly aggressive patients will take up the mantle of Mafia while the Staff will be the Town, and the Apparitions will be a Third Party.

Roles
The Staff
The faction which consists of the Asylum's staff and a select few patients, also known as the town in this game:
The Pathologist
Spoiler:
The Pathologist is able to visit a dead player every night, learning all of the messages that they'd received.

The Nurse
Spoiler:
The Nurse visits one person every night, saving them from death and blocking their actions.

The Surgeon
Spoiler:
The Surgeon visits one person every night, preventing them from dying and being converted. One person who tries to kill the surgeon's target on the same night will die.

The Shrink
Spoiler:
The Shrink visits one person every night, and can even visit themself. If the shrink visits the killer, they'll be turned into a villager. Anyone else visited by the Shrink is protected from conversion.

The Psychic
Spoiler:
The Psychic visits one person every night, learning of their true alignment regardless of role. However, the psychic will learn nothing if they're visited during the night.

The Virgin
Spoiler:
The Virgin holds the ability to stop the mafia from carrying out the next night kill if the virgin dies during the day due to a lynch.

The Telepath
Spoiler:
The Telepath hold the ability to send anonymous messages at any point in the day to any role of their choosing.

The Penguins
Spoiler:
There are two of these buggers, and while they're not actually penguins outside of their own distorted perception, they do have some power. The Penguins hold on to and pass around various and random secrets such as who visited who, who has what items, and whether or not a player took part in any night time activities. If the two penguins happen to meet during the night, all actions for that night will fail while they mate.

Patients
The faction which consists of the patients against the new forms of 'rehabilitation' - also know as the mafia in this game:
The Whisperer
Spoiler:
The Whisperer has the ability to send anonymous messages to other players at any point of the game.

The Poisoner
Spoiler:
The Poisoner visits one person every night, poisoning them as a result. Poisoned players will die a day later and know that they are poisoned. Only the nurse and the surgeon can heal poisoning.

The Yakuza
Spoiler:
The Yakuza visits one person and himself. The selected person is converted to mafia, and the Yakuza dies. The Yakuza cannot be saved from death by any means.

The Hooker
Spoiler:
The Hooker visits one person every night. Any role that is visited by the hooker will be role blocked. Visiting the virgin will convert them into a villager.

The Apparitions
The faction which consists of individuals with unique win conditions:
The Alien
Spoiler:
The Alien is a being which has been called down to Earth as the result of the inhumane experiments being run on the patients of AUA. It's uncertain what the alien's motives are, however, it's been known to be active at night. The Alien visits one player every night and probes them. Probes are counted as items. The Alien wins if all living players are probed.

The Cyborg
Spoiler:
The Cyborg is a patient who suffers from an extreme case of schizophrenia. The patient believes themselves to be part machine, and has used the power of their will and their belief in the reality that they've constructed for themselves to alter the makeup of their physical body to a minor level. The cyborg starts the game with three charges. The Cyborg receives a charge every time they're the recipient of a non-deadly town visit at night. The Cyborg loses a charge each day, as well as if they are shot, stabbed or attacked at night. Once per day, the cyborg can choose to use a charge to convert another player into a cyborg. All cyborgs share a night meeting. Cyborgs can only die when their charge count hits zero, and they'll win once they outnumber the town.

The Amnesiac

Spoiler:
Some of the patients have been reported as suffering from a form of multiple personality disorder. Each of the patients who have been studied after these reports have shown a single similarity. Each shares a certain persona within themselves,
who the doctors have dubbed the amnesiac. It's uncertain who or what the amnesiac is,
however, the entity has shown itself as taking a liking to the recently deceased - even going so far as to speak through them. The Amnesiac may choose at any time to visit one person in the graveyard and acquire their role and win condition. The amnesiac cannot win if they do not pick a player.

- Abstaining is allowed, but only on day 1.
- In the event of a tie for lynch votes, a coin toss will determine who dies.

By this point, everyone should have received a message regarding their role. If you've not received a message, please let me know so that I can send you one. I'll be writing up the phase post later today, but you may begin sending in night actions as of now. This first night phase will last 48 hours so that you may get situated and figure out how you want to start the game. However, every following night phase will only last 24 hours.

Night Zero
The Asylum was quiet. Or, well... as quiet as a mental institution could hope to get. There were no pitter patters of the feet of mice, nor could the hooting of owls be heard, but somewhere within its walls,
the sweatied feet of a small group of patients plopped against the ground as they moved through its corridors as stealthily as they could. The roaming patients were clearly up to no good, but with the asylum's staff busy with their experiments, their attention wasn't yet steadied on the small vigilante group.

One of the patients pressed his lips through the bars of another patients window and whispered, "Freedom!" The patient moved on to the next room and once more pressed his lips through the window's bars and whispered. "Freedom!"

Following behind the patient, was a member of the staff who had grown tired of the never-ending tests that she was forced to put her patients through. At one time, she had cared for each and every one of them, but as the days went on and more were lost to the director's twisted visions, her patience grew ever thinner. The pulled along her med cart and slipped the keys that came along with it into each of the patients' doors, pulling them open and freeing the prisoners.

"Freedom my friends! Freedom my brothers and sisters!" The man continued to whisper as he spun around and leapt across and down the hallway from room to room, waking the slumbering patients within each.

"Let it go..." one of the patients answered back, pulling his door closed after the nurse had only just opened it. "There's no freedom for us who can't even escape our own minds. Just let it go... one day, we'll all be free if we just follow the director's plans. Sure it sucks, but it's a lot better than being out there without the help that he can give us."

"Blasphemy. You've simply given up, my friend."

"Bah. I'm going back to bed. You do whatever you want to do, but I've got tests tomorrow and I need my sleep."

The whispering man's face grew red as he stamped his foot. "Why does nobody care? Nobody here even seems to mind the things that they're doing to us..."

"I understand." The nurse put her hand on the whispering man's back. "I understand, but there's nothing that we can do alone..."

"No... no, there is. We can reform this institution from the inside out. If they don't want to go free, then we'll just have to make the ones in charge let them. You have access to keys and to the med cart. All it takes is for you to give someone the wrong medicine a time to many. All it takes is one turn of the key and we can take out anyone in the building that we want to."

"You're... you're talking about killing the patients and the staff? That's... I didn't sign up for this..."

"But don't you see? It's like the addage 'an eye for an eye'. They've killed so many patients already without a care in the world. Isn't it only fair that me and you should be able to take out our pain and our anger on them?"

"If you're talking about taking out some of the rotten staff in this place, then I'm all for it."
An elderly asian man walked out from his room and pulled a knife from beneath his bed. "Bet you ain't ever seen this'n before, eh, Nursey? My grandson brought it to me one day. Slipped it right up my rump and snuck it on in. Nobody ever knew the difference."

A worried look grew across the nurse's face as she looked between the two men. If they were willing to go so far for their freedom, shouldn't she do just the same? She'd cared for these patients as if they were her own family and they'd been taken away from her, beaten on and tested upon as if they were no better than lab rats. "Fine. I'll help you boys."

"Don't forget me. I'm sure you'll find my special line of experience useful to you." A black woman who towered at least a foot over everyone else who had assembled walked out from her room. The woman had a full beard and massive sagging breasts which looked like someone had put bowling balls into a bra and strapped them to her chest. Which, to be realistic, is probably what they had done. "Honey, you just say the word and I can turn all the men and women in this building. Just give me an hour. Mmm."

The whispering man slowly looked back over to the other two who had joined in on his little band of vigilantes. "Well then, I guess that settles it. Since we're already here, we might as well start tonight, right? So... who'll it be?"

Day One
The troupe had disassembled. The Vengeful Poisoner Nurse had passed along the room keys to The Whisperer so that he and the rest of the group could carry out their nightly activities. The Nurse pushed her med cart down the hall until she ended up in front of a certain patient's room. The woman looked down at the note on her cart, written by the shaky hand of the whisperer.

'Room 257. You know what to do.'

The nurse looked down at her cart and then pulled out the patient's medicine and stared at it for several seconds before putting back on the cart and taking another patient's medicine. "I know what to do... I know what I have to do... just a little extra dose is all I have to give..."

The Poisoner popped open the lid of the medicine and poured out five pills into her hand; three more than the actual patient's regular dosage.

"Yo Cindy! Whatchu doin' girl? You know this ain't yo hall." A sassy black nurse made her way down the hallway with her own med cart. "I seen you had the wrong cart so I came to get yo attention. Guess I was just in time too. You almost gave Georgie the wrong meds. Coulda really messed the boy up y'know?"

The Poisoner lowered her head. "Oh! Thank you! I was just on my way back to switch the cart back actually. Just looked at the medicine in this bottle to make sure I wasn't imagining things myself."

The sassy black nurse laughed. "I feel ya girl. Being around these people all day really takes its toll on ya. Well, anyways, let's finish up these med passes and clock out. I feel like I ain't slept in ages."

The Poisoner nodded her head and swapped her cart with the other nurse's before running off down her actual hall.

On the other side of the asylum, the whisperer and his cohorts had found their target for the night. The patients slipped the key into the door and flung it open. What they were met with,
wasn't a patient, but something completely out of this world. Nakuzami the Alien had shed his human skin and was in the process of probing another of the patients.

"Uh, it's not what it looks like."

The whisperer and the hooker left the room, leaving the Yakuza to deal with the alien.

Oh whoa it's been day for an hour and I didn't even notice

And probably because I died

Ruuude. All I wanted to do was stick things up some butts. 'Scuse me for trying to have a good time

At least someone got to enjoy it a little before I went out



And cute, literally one of my first night zeroes here. How interesting! Probably scared the mafia into taking me out tbh.

(it's okay, I almost left the game before it started, but sign ups closed right before I did and I would've felt bad doing so at that point. lmao)

Well, I'd usually be disappointed in losing Naku on N0, because she's always useful to town in a way or another. But thanks bad guys, the alien role looked like a real pain in the ass (get it?)...

Number Five is suspicious... really? Will I already have to jump into action? I get randovoting, but this fast and even with such a motive? Nuh huh... I'm not tolerating that. I usually save myself but nooope...

Do you believe in catastrofism ? I don't know myself, but fate has decided my vote is you.

[Vote] Nyke

Call it destiny or whatever, I'm not getting this slip anyways (and before anyways misinterprets it I mean getting mislynched D1, so I'm equating votes before I forget)

EDIT:the expression is not catastrofism, sorry, I've must've messed up concepts because of the biology notes I've been studying. What I meant was determinism.

Geez, I put a clearly very random and baseless vote on you, and you already think you're going to be lynched? :freaked-out:

Vets, is this reaction in character for Desox?
