Alright, so some of you may be familiar with this game, some of you may not be, but I've had a wee look at this forum and not really seen an active Mafia game in the past... let's see if we can turn that around, shall we?

For this initial version, I'm gonna set my sights low and go for a small game with a bundle of roles; just to see if we can have a reasonably good small game.

In a standard game of Mafia, there are two key factions; the Town, and the Mafia. The town get a large numerical advantage on the Mafia, but the Mafia will know their fellow allies and will be able to confer in the night phases.

The two key phases in the game are as follows:

Day Phase: Everyone will be able to post in this topic and will be able to cast votes on who to "lynch" in the day. If one person receives enough votes to be lynched, (this will be specified at the start of the day phase) then that person is killed at the end of the day. The Town will be seeking to lynch the Mafia in these phases, and of course, the Mafia will be seeking to avoid being lynched and if possible, end up with the Town lynching themselves!

Night Phase: Nobody is permitted to talk in this topic. If you are the Mafia, you are to discuss tactics and who to kill etc. at night. I'll leave the method of communication for the members of Mafia at their discretion; though I do have a good means in mind. This chat MUST be kept secret from non-Mafia players in the game. If you are the Town, and you have a role you may use at night, please PM me if you wish to use it or not; and if so, how you wish to use it! (If that applies to your role) The Mafia faction gets one designated kill per night; and whoever performs the kill may not use any additional abilities, if they have any.

The day and night phase cycle until there is a winning faction. For the town to win, all of the Mafia must have died. For the Mafia to win, they must be in a position where they outnumber the remaining number of town roles.

In addition to this, there are Neutral roles that can also come into play! Benign Neutrals aren't necessarily aligned to anybody, and will have a variety of odd win conditions. Evil Neutrals usually have sinister win conditions, and will have to fight against very difficult odds in order to achieve their win condition. A very good or very lucky player may well be able to pull off the extraordinary requirements! TOWN CANNOT WIN IF THEY DO NOT TAKE OUT THE EVIL NEUTRAL(S) AS WELL AS THE MAFIA.

You may need to lie to hide your role, especially if you're a member of the Mafia or have a role that is harmful to Town!

LIST OF POSSIBLE ROLES:
Town Roles
Spoiler:
Citizen

You are a Citizen! You have no special abilities.

Clarifications: None.

Sheriff

You are a Sheriff! You have good instincts that let you distinguish good and bad people. Each night, you may choose a person to check. You will be notified if they are Mafia or an evil neutral.

Clarifications: If you find an evil neutral, you will be given their exact role. If you discover a Mafia member, you will not be given a role, just alignment... unless it's the Godfather, who will seem unsuspicious.

Investigator

You are an Investigator! You search for clues that point out what people are up to. Each night, you may choose a person to check. You will be given a clue as to who they might be; resulting in you knowing they fall in one of the following pairing brackets:

Citizen/Godfather/Jester/Student
Sheriff/Investigator/Consigliere/Executioner
Bodyguard/Dancer/Doctor/Janitor
Vigilante/Veteran/Mafioso/Serial Killer
Mayor/Mason Leader/Tracker/Watcher/Framer
Survivor/Amnesiac/Mason/Witch

Clarifications: A framer can cause you to get incorrect results.

Doctor

You are a Doctor! You have the ability to quickly heal the wounded if you can get there quickly enough. Each night, you may choose a person to save. If that person is attacked, you will be notified, and you will save them. You also have the ability to stop cult conversions, and will be notified upon doing so.

Clarifications: Cannot target self. If a person is attacked multiple times, an equal number of doctors must be on that person in order for him to be saved.

Bodyguard

You are a Bodyguard! You are willing to sacrifice your life on someone's behalf! Each night, you may choose a person to protect. If that person is attacked, you and the attacker will die, regardless of immunity or vests on the attacker.

Clarifications: The Bodyguard cannot guard himself, so cannot kill his attacker if attacked directly.

Vigilante

You are a Vigilante! You want to see the scum dead, and you want to deal with them yourself. Each night, you may choose to kill someone. You may do this twice, but you cannot shoot on the first night.

Clarifications: None.

Mason Leader

You are the leader of the Masons! You have just started up a new branch in town and are looking for new members. Each night, you can choose someone to attempt to recruit. If your target is a Citizen, they will be recruited. If your target is a member of the Cult, you will kill them instead. If your target is anything else, nothing happens and you will be notified of failure. You also share a night chat with Masons you have recruited.

Clarifications: In the event the Mason Leader dies, the earliest recruited Mason will be promoted to replace him. Masons will not spawn at the beginning of the game, so you will have to rough it alone until you find a recruit.

Mayor

You are the leader of the town, gone into hiding due to the Mafia threat. You may choose to reveal yourself by posting /reveal Mayor during the day. Once you do, a public announcement will be made and your vote counts for 3.

Clarifications: Anyone falsely revealing Mayor will be modkilled.

Dancer

You are a Dancer! You may choose someone to roleblock during the night.

Clarifications: Will die if targeting the Serial Killer. Cannot be roleblocked.

Veteran

You are a war Veteran, shell-shocked and paranoid from the war! You may choose to go on alert during the night, killing everyone who visits you. You pierce immunities and vests. You may do this 3 times.

Clarifications: You kill the Witch if they visit you, but not the Watcher.

Tracker

You are a Tracker! You are a professional stalker. Each night, you may choose someone to follow. You will know who the target visited, but not what they actually did,

Clarifications: If your target visited nobody or multiple people, you will be notified.

Watcher

You are a Watcher! You like to camp outside other people’s houses and learn who visits them. Each night, you may choose someone to watch. You will learn the identity of every person who visits your target that night.

Clarifications: Does not get attacked by the Veteran.


Mafia Roles
Spoiler:
Godfather

You are the leader of the Mafia! You have the final word on your subordinates’ night actions should you disagree.

Clarifications: You show up as innocent if a Sheriff checks you. You are immune to attacks at night.

Mafioso

You are the lowest-ranking member of the Mafia. Each night you can go kill someone.

Clarifications: None.

Consigliere

You are the Mafia’s second in command! You are essentially a Mafia-aligned Investigator. You replace the Godfather if he dies.

Clarifications: In this version, if there is a Consigliere, I'm not going to let them automatically replace the Godfather. In future versions, I MAY. / The investigative pairings you will receive are exactly the same as the Investigators.

Framer

You are a Framer! You can easily forge information. Each night you may choose to frame someone as a Mafia role of your choice.

Clarifications: Framers will affect Sheriff and Investigator results.

Janitor

You are a Janitor! Having to work in society’s lowest-ranking profession, you have turned to the Mafia for a chance to rise up. Each night you may choose to clean a person. If that person dies the same night, that person’s role and alignment will not be revealed at the beginning of day. You may use this ability twice.

Clarifications: When visiting a person who has been killed over the night, the Janitor will conceal their role from the rest of the town.

Dancer

You are a Dancer! You may choose someone to roleblock during the night.

Clarifications: Will die if targeting the Serial Killer. You cannot be roleblocked.


Benign Neutrals
Spoiler:
Jester

You are a Jester! You are crazy. You win if you get lynched during the day. You may visit someone at night. If you are lynched, one random person who voted for you will suicide.

Clarifications: Your target will know if you visited them at night.

Executioner

You are an Executioner! You really want this one person to get lynched, and you win if it happens. You will be given a target at the beginning of the game. If your target is killed at night, you will become a Jester.

Clarifications: Your target is not aware you want them dead. Target can be anyone in the game (inc. mafia, neutrals). You have no night actions.

Survivor

You are a Survivor! You don’t care about the conflict and just want to live. You have 3 vests you can use during the night. You win if you are alive at the end of a game, and you can win with any faction as long as it is the last one standing.

Clarifications: These are not automatic vests. You must PM me when you wish to use a vest.

Amnesiac

You are an Amnesiac! You forgot your role. During the night you may choose the role of a dead person to become. The next day, it will be announced what role you took, but your identity remains anonymous. You win if you achieve your role’s goals.

Clarifications: Cannot be roleblocked. If you do not choose a role, your goal is to survive. Cannot choose Godfather, Mayor, Mason Leader.

Student

You are a Student! You are lost in this place and need to find someone to mentor you. During the night you can choose someone to be your mentor. You will gain a night chat with that person the next night, and upon the mentor’s death, you will assume the mentor’s role.

Clarifications: Until you choose a mentor, your win condition is to survive. If you choose someone who dies the same night or a Godfather, Mayor or Mason Leader, you can try again.


Evil Neutrals
Spoiler:
Witch

You are a Witch! Each night you choose someone to control and someone for him to visit. You win if the town loses and you survive.

Clarifications: If controlling a jailor, you will force him to execute. You can force someone to visit himself, or even you! Controlling a Citizen or someone with no night actions will only cause that person to visit-nothing will actually happen.

Serial Killer

You are a crazy, psycho Serial Killer! Each night you can kill someone. You win if you are the last person standing. You have a one-use autovest.

Clarifications: If roleblocked by a Dancer, you will kill that roleblocker instead of your original target


GAME MECHANICS:

Each day, I will make a post signalling that the day begins. After this, people can post whatever they feel like. Voting to eliminate a player (the official term for this is "lynching") can also happen. If you do this, make sure to follow this format: /vote Person. If you do not do this, you vote won't be counted. You can also unvote with /unvote Person. If a majority vote for one person is reached, he or she is eliminated from the game and cannot post in this thread any more, everyone learns that person's role, and the day ends.

During night, nobody may post in this thread. Mafia members and Mason members can chat through PMs or some IRC channel or something, but MUST take all precautions to keep chat to themselves. (I have something in mind for this!) Once everyone has submitted their final night action to me or the night ends, I will begin day with a post with who is eliminated and how.

One thing I must make clear: aside from Mafia and Masons who know who their team/group members are, nobody else knows who anyone else is, so do not reveal your own role unless you feel is necessary. Nobody aside from Mafia members and Masons can PM each other (i.e. Even if the Doctor and the Sheriff know each other, they can't PM each other to communicate), and even then cannot do so during the day. PMs will break the game, so PLEASE abide by this.

Lastly, unless you're a neutral role, dying does not mean you have lost! If you are a dead Sheriff, and the game ends with a Citizen, the Doctor, and the Tracker as the only three people left, you still win since you are listed under "Town" like everyone who was left alive.

Please do NOT discuss the game outside of the game itself until the game is over.

FAQ
Spoiler:
Tiebreakers:

In a case where the game ends with 2 people of different alignments remaining, ties will be broken in this order:

Serial Killer > Mafia+Witch > Town

Q: You don't have to take a role the first night if you're the Amnesiac, correct? And are you still neutral, or does the role you take put you on that faction?
A: You can take a role whenever, but not night 1 because nobody is dead then! Also, you join that faction.

Q: Does the Executioner have night abilities? Does he have to survive to win?
A: The Executioner has no night abilities. He only needs to survive long enough to see his target lynched - after that it doesn't matter what happens to him.

Q: Regarding the student, if your mentor happens to be a person who can chat with others (mason, mafia, etc) can they reveal your role in those night chats?
A: Yes.

Q: Are players notified if they are witched?
A: Yes.

Q: What happens if a Mayor sends the PM to reveal but still gets votes before the Game Master sees it and posts the reveal?
A: All votes on the Mayor made AFTER the PM do not count.

Q: Can you chat with your teammates at any time or the chats are only restricted to the night time?
A: You can only chat during night, but you will still be able to view posts you have made in those forums. (if applicable)

Q: How come Veteran doesn't attack a Watcher even though Veteran goes before Watcher in the order of operations?
A: Watcher is just pro like that okay?

Q: What if the Dancer blocks a role that goes before them in the Order of Operations that is not immune to blocking?
A: Nothing actually happens. But the Dancer isn't aware their block failed.

Q: Do roleblockers learn if their roleblock was successful?
A: No message is given if successful or targeting a role that has already acted. A message will be sent if a roleblock was attempted on someone immune to it, though.


If you tl;dr'd all that, you probably shouldn't be signing up to play. Mafia is a game where it's imperative that you learn the mechanics, but when you do know the mechanics, it's highly enjoyable! If you're already familiar with Mafia, please still read through this topic carefully. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me either in this topic of via PM.

SIGNED UP:
I'm going for between 12-24 slots filled, so this should be a small-medium game.
1. the delightful maccrash
2. the delicious SarasaKat
3. the daring Malamar
4. the delectable Zorogami
5. the dependable Judge Mandolore Shepard
6. the disgusting Razor Leaf
7. the dauntless Sora
8. the darling Euphoric
9. the dispendious Solace
10.the dashing elheroeoscuro
11.and Nuke

RESERVES:
1. Star11Pika
Some people will need to be on reserve in case someone drops out of the game for any reason. I may need a few reserves for this game since I'm not entirely sure how many people on this forum are able to commit and think ahead in terms of whether they'll be able to take part in this game! If there are too many reserves in this version, I may use less if I do another game~

Once I have a sufficient number of signups and reserves, I will PM people their roles. It is imperative that you keep this role to yourself. Thanks!

For the record, in the event of a disastrous turnout- which I am increasingly expecting now, I DO have an alternate version of Mafia in mind that can prolly work for as few as 5 or 6 people. Don't be scared to be signup number two! ...please.

SEVEN IN I LOVE YOU ALL.

I'm planning on PMing roles out on WEDNESDAY. I could probably just about make a Mafia game work for nine or ten people at a squeeze. It would be much more fun with more people though!

Okay; 11 signups, one reserve, I'd say I'm ready to finalise a role list and PM roles.

I'll be doing so at 8pm GMT (about 2 hours of this post)

Any signups before that time will be put into the game; but anyone after that deadline will have to be a reserve~ What's the lineup for this sort of game? STAY TUNED; you'll see!

The sun rises, and outside, everyone is greeted by a bloodied corpse, which is lying next to a selection of sanative supplies and semen stained studio albums. Despite the sheer mutilation of the once living chap, it is apparent that our dead friend is none other than maccrash, the Doctor! Shock. Horror. Dead hipsters. This morning has all three. But who could kill such a poor innocent cloyster? There is of course, only one fair way to find out. A public vote, with one person being executed. Ideally the culprit, but maybe it could be fun to lynch someone innocent for the fun of it.

The basics of the day phase is as follows:
You may vote for someone by writing in bold: /vote [insert username]
If someone receives a number of votes equal to [[number of remaining town]/2 + 1] rounded down, the person is locked in for the lynch and the lynch will happen at the end of the day. Once that person has been locked in, I may or may not make it possible to vote /skip day. If it is possible for that vote to go ahead, it will require the same number of votes as the lynch, and the day will end on that amount of votes being reached. The day will otherwise end on Monday the 31st of March, 8PM GMT.


People remaining:

1. SarasaKat
2. Malamar
3. Zorogami
4. Judge Mandolore Shepard
5. Razor Leaf
6. Sora
7. Euphoric
8. Solace
9. elheroeoscuro
10. Nuke

Reserves: Star11Pika

Roles Remaining:

Godfather
Hidden Mafia
Hidden Mafia

Unknown Neutral
Sheriff
Hidden Town
Hidden Town
Citizen
Citizen
Citizen


Graveyard:
Spoiler:
maccrash - Doctor - killed on Night 1 by the Mafia


BEGIN. DISCUSS. LYNCH. Or y'know, don't lynch. Lynching is not compulsory. The choice is yours, dear townsfolk. As ten people remain, SIX votes are required for a lynch.

I find this post incredibly suspicious. It's still really early in the day, which means you shouldn't really be pressuring people yet, so this makes you look like you just want to get a quick lynch in. Also, did anything happen to you?

Nothing happened to me last night.
