Justice: The Battle for Monticelia

Monticelia is a bustling trade city deep in the mainland of Italy. Monticelia made a name for itself by selling weapons and armor to neighboring cities as well as selling elite mercenaries to help train soldiers of those with the money to spare. It had been ruled by the just and kind Marchetti family for as long as it has been in existence, but some of its citizens have always desired more power.

Recently, the marchese (ruler) of Monticelia, Quintiliano Marchetti, was butchered on his way to mass by members of the D'Agata family, and his only heir, Leonardo Marchetti, is in hiding until the D'Agata threat is dealt with. The D'Agata family has taken over rule of Monticelia with brute force, and they are harsh. They tax the citizens heavily and maintain rule by using the mercenaries as a police force.

However, the tighter the leash, the stronger the desire to break free, and Monticelia's citizens are doing just that. A group has formed in secret, with a goal to continue hiding Leonardo and return the Marchetti rule to Monticelia. They call themselves "La Libero", and they will die for their cause.


About the Game


For those of you with previous experience with mafia games, welcome back! This'll be a standard game with the usual collection of roles following Epicmafia standards. Not anything too insane, like an immortal riddle master, but I still intend on giving this game a fun and refreshing atmosphere.

For those of you that are new to the game, great to have you here! This game isn't tailored specifically to teach you the mechanics of the game but it'll be treated as a good place to start. I'll be more than happy to explain the mechanics of the game to anyone that's confused, and other experienced mafia members will likely help you out. I also highly recommend clicking on this link: https://www.philosophy.com/whywaterisnotwet for a useful breakdown of the rules and a list of definitions, and also this link: https://www.animedebates.com/isnarutogood?, which has a great explanation of how mafia games work. While it isn't necessary to read all this to start playing a game, Gunner put a lot of work into it, and it's a fun read.

To summarize all that info, the game is split into two factions. The Innocents (D'Agata) win by eliminating all of the Mafia (La Libero) that are in their midst, while the Mafia wins by outnumbering the remaining players. The Innocents are the uninformed majority, who have no idea who's who, while the Mafia have their own private chat and work together to bamboozle the town. Be careful, this game is a little different, the "good guys" are generally the majority but in this game they are the mafia in order to better tell the story.

The game is split into Day and Night Phases. During the Day Phases, people post in the thread about their analysis of the game and vote on a person to lynch. During Night Phases, Innocents and Mafia get to use what are known as Night Actions, or abilities that give them vital information, interfere with other Night Actions, give out useful items, or potentially eliminate another player. During the Night, no one can post in the thread, and people send their Night Actions to the GM: Bidoof FTW via Pokecommunity or via Discord.

That should cover the basics. More role information is given below. And just remember, the important thing is to have fun!

Roles



The D'Agata Forces
The D'Agata family and their legion of mercenaries, the new rulers of Monticelia are looking to squash rebellion before it can have any impact.

Giovanni D'Agata - Governor
The mastermind behind the murder of Quintiliano and the head of the D'Agata family, Giovanni can use his influence to override a lynch once per game.

General Pagano - Cop
The head of the mercenaries, his job is to keep the citizens in line and assure the D'Agata's rise to power. Each night, he may raid the home of another player, discovering their alignment.

Mercenaries - Vanilla Town x4
Regular footsoldiers for the D’Agata, they have no special powers or abilities. The amount of mercenaries in the game will be corresponding to the amount of players that sign up. The final count will be added to the OP after the game has begun.


La Libero
Monticelia’s freedom fighters and the protectors of Leonardo Marchetti, they work in secret to sabotage and eliminate the D’Agata.

Captain Savaria - Godfather
A high ranking mercenary by day, and a member of La Libero by night, Captain Savaria will show up as a member of the D’Agata if investigated.

Freedom Fighter - Vanilla Mafia
The little guy fights back, freedom fighters have no special roles or abilities but take part in the mafia chat and nightly killings.


The Rules


All Pokecommunity rules apply.

Missing two votes in a row will result in your removal from the game and your replacement.
Do not share your PMs! Furthermore, all game related conversation should be kept to this thread or to specified Discord chats.
If you are killed, you are effectively dead. You get one death post that may not contain any in-game information. After that you’re barred from haunting the thread.
Do not post in the thread during the night phase.
You cannot abstain. You are however free to change your votes.
In the event of a tie for lynch votes, a coin toss will determine who gets lynched.

    Hey everyone! I'm going to edit the OP so that we can downsize a bit, we'll be playing with the 7 that we have, and I will start n0 as soon as I can so that we can go ahead and get into the action.

    EDIT: looks like it's 8!

    Night Zero

    It's 8pm, the sun sets over the city of Montecelia, and curfew begins. Mercenaries patrol the streets, watching for anything that could be considered a threat. But what they haven't yet discovered, is that a small group is organizing in the shadows. Tension is rising in the city, and it reeks with the smell of rebellion.

    The night phase will end in approximately 24 hours.

    The Rules


    All Pokecommunity rules apply.
    Votes must be formatted as [Lynch] Player. Failure to do so may result in your vote not being counted.

    Day One

    The nights in Italy are generally quite quiet, but some poor soul was awoken in the middle of the night by the sounds of soldiers tearing up his home.

    "Hey, you can't be in here!" The poor soul shouted.
    One of the mercenaries slapped him, "Shut up! We're here on orders of the General, we can do whatever we please."

    The soldiers continued to investigate the home rather roughly, eventually, they left, having found what they were looking for.

    One of the soldiers, however, never made it home. He was found lying dead in the street the next morning, with "La Libero" tagged on the floor next to him. The resistance has begun.



    Desox is dead! He was a Mercenary.
    The day phase will end in approximately 48 hours.

    RIP Desox.

    So, with 8 starting players I expect there to be only 2 mafia, as 3 would result in it already being LYLO on Day 1, so we are currently at 2/5 if that's the case.

      RIP Desox and gimme's hat.

      Short on suggestions here as we have no public information. I don't know Desox that well - is there any reason besides "mafia needs N1 kill" that would encourage mafia to off him? That might help us determine which players would see him as a threat.

      I don't know him well either, but it was probably just a random shot in the dark, like most n0 mafia kills are. We have nothing to go off of right now, and the cop should not reveal on D1. I'm just gonna random vote to make sure I don't forget it.

      I'll change it in the off chance that a lead comes up.

      I agree on the cop not revealing unless they have a scum result, as they can only get one of those anyway, since the Godfather exists.

      I guess I'll random vote too since it doesn't look like the cop will reveal a scum result today, which is basically our only source of information at night. This game is going to come down to scumreads. At least everyone has posted today so that's something at least...

      [Vote] Easy Money Sniper Nice name bro

      I would honestly rather not vote off the new guy so soon, but I'm a lot happier to be an asshole than to die so unless another vote is placed somewhere that's where mine is going. Agree completely that cop shouldn't out yet, but they might have to tomorrow regardless of what they find tonight.
