Please register interest via PM or the signup thread.


Setup

6 Townsfolk

3 Werewolves

There may or may not be... 'modifiers'. I couldn't possibly say one way or another :p

I believe I’ve done a fair job at balancing. Both sides will have their work cut out for them, certainly.

Note: roles were assigned by using a randomisation process. Twice. In other words, it's all fair.

Rules

As mentioned above, the game will begin when six out of nine (6/9) players have confirmed receipt of their role. I will create a post subsequent to this with the title 'Day 1' (and perhaps a bit of a story, if I can be arsed). When you see this post, it's go time.

Day 1
Begins the moment my 'Day 1' post goes live, and lasts for a period of 24 hours.

Night Cycle
Complete when all night actions are in. This could be minutes, or hours - so make sure you keep checking the thread. Nothing is certain.

Day 2 onwards
24 hours from Night Cycle completion, and so on.

Note: this is supposed to be rather unstructured in the hopes of fostering a rather chaotic game in which uncertainty pervades. The end goal is to keep everyone on their toes, basically.

Lynches/Player Death(s)

Lynches will be as per vanilla Mafia: /vote for fellow players throughout the day; the player with the most votes at the end of the day cycle will be lynched.

Night Actions

Wolves should post their night action(s) in their QT or PM me once they have agreed upon a course of action. Wolves can kill one townsperson per night.

Any special roles we may happen to have can post their action(s) in his/her QT, or PM me directly.

Outside Communication

Heartily encouraged. PM, IRC (if anyone still uses that?) email, you name it - just keep logs so that we can enjoy any subterfuge you employed once the game has reached its conclusion.

My only stipulation is that you do not post your role PMs. If you do so, I will find you IRL and shit in your bed. Mod colour for srs bsns.

VICTOLY!


Town must find and kill all wolves to win; wolves win when their number is greater than that of the townsfolk (unless it ends up 1:1, in which case the wolves win).

Go Crazy

Obviously, there are certain boundaries we should observe. We're all adults here, so I'll leave it up to you to recognise and honour 'the line'... but with that being said, a more aggressive play style is encouraged. Not necessary, but encouraged. This is your chance to vent and have a bit of fun. Keep in mind that it's just a game. Fling as much shit as you want at one another within the game thread / private communications, but do try to avoid a) getting too personal and b) taking things too seriously.

Mod Colour


Pink and fabulous, darlings.

Remember: This is my first time hosting a game, and I'm not particularly experienced with Mafia in general. If I've missed anything out, please point it out to me. I'll inform / make corrections where necessary. Keep in mind though that I am purposefully being vague on some points, because that's kinda the whole idea.

Good luck, and most importantly, have fun.

Spectators: PM me for spec thread.

INTPf Mafia #4 (Pmj's TWG)

INTPsville used to be a place of tranquillity and beauty, replete with unicorns, quad-rainbows and occasional visits from Brian Blessed - but one fateful day, all of that changed.

A terrible witch by the name of Jennywocky decided to curse the townspeople after she received negative feedback regarding her personal hygiene and penchant for keeping large numbers of cats. A left-swipe from her believed future beloved was the final nail in the coffin.

With a single flick of her dark and powerful emo-fringe, she cursed those who had offended her the most with a terrible affliction. During the dead of night, they would suffer great anguish as their bodies contort into a dark and sinister beasts, hell-bent on the consumption of human flesh.

Last night, the curse came to fruition. Three horrifying figures were sighted stalking the shadows during the wee hours, and their blood curdling howls were heard for miles around. The mutilated corpse of Mr. Gopher was found strewn all over the town centre this morning.

The vast majority have fled the town to escape the horrors unleashed upon them, but six brave souls have remained in an attempt to reclaim their beloved INTPsville.

The problem is, there are nine townsfolk in total. Three of your ‘brethren’ are the afflicted.

Find them quickly, before it is too late.

(Jenny sends her love).

Day 1 Begins Here.

Have at it!

The usual 'no editing posts' rule applies. So that's two stipulations I have.

I'm so unreasonable.

Well I heard that Jennywocky only cursed one of the Towns people after an affair had turned sour, and then that dude decided to turn others out of bitterness rather than face the consequences alone as he should of.. If that rumour is to be believed, I think one of the culprits is definitely a man.

And knowing men as I do, I presume he turned on the women.

I think there's a good chance we're looking for one male, two female at present.

Ball rolling. Game goes nowhere if no one votes anyone early game.

Damn, I read that after I just edited a post.

I switched the words 'affair' and 'had' around, because they were backwards.

Smithcommajohn has heard about the terrible events which have befallen his brethren in INTPsville and is en route to town, ready to lend aid should someone pussy out leave town prematurely.

Yellow and Spaceblog have yet to make an appearance. There are murmurings among the crowd that they're off bonking somewhere. Very inappropriate at a time like this, it has to be said.

So.. we have basically nothing at this point.

I'm going to

because they have confirmed but not said anything yet.

Don't worry too much about formatting. So long as you make it fairly obvious for me, no worries.

I tried to edit my title to 'INTPf Mafia #4 (Pmj's TWG)' to keep with convention, but was unable to. I'd be appreciative if a mod/admin could sort my shit out for me.

Heh. 6/9. Nice.

I will find you IRL and shit in your bed.
shit in my bed shit in my bed shit in my bed

Had to be done, sorry. I won't do it again.

How do we vote?
Very carefully.

Vote cheeseumpuffs. Everyone, wagon here, or you're a fucking wolf.
I have some doubts about the logic of this plan, but am too afraid to speak my mind as it may make me seem like a wolf.

I'll shadow vote Cheeseumpuffs, for now I guess. :D

Yeah okay but how do I vote?
Very carefully.

24 hour day means people should post stuff.
Aw shit yeah, this is shorter. Can we get a day end timer in here? Or am I going to have to figure it all out on my own?

So.. we have basically nothing at this point.

I'm going to

/vote cheesumpuffs

because they have confirmed but not said anything yet.
If you'd look at the signups thread you'll see that I mentioned corresponding with pmj (implying I'd confirmed for the game) right before mentioning that I was going to bed. I have just now awoken (at 1:30pm fuck my life) and should be good to play all day, provided my dog doesn't rip the stitches out of his face and need more emergency treatment.


-------------------------------

I'm going to try and keep this log updated. It will help me remember all of the people in the game and how I feel about them, as well as keep things organized re:people's suspicions and voting record.

Cheese - Confirmed yet no activity yet.
Cheeseumpuffs * - Active, votes cheese for same reason as QT vote on me (ie. seems like the only constructive thing to do atm)
Helvete - Active, joke wagons me (no implication)
Minuend - Active, no vote yet.
QuickTwist - Active, votes me for being a perceived lakelurk (reasoning gives me slight town bump to his read. Nothing major, but worth noting as it's the only sense of anyone's alignment I've gotten so far.
Redbaron - Active, votes Minu because of her big dong (no implication, at least about the game), Switches vote to Sinny due to her poor logic (valid point that her logic was dumb, probably not basis for real suspicion, though. No implication)
Sinny - Active, votes Helv (probably in response to his joke wagon. No implication)
Spaceblog - Unconfirmed
Yellow - Unconfirmed


/vote cheese, for the same reasons QT voted me. With the shorter, hectic day/night cycle it would be too convenient for someone just to be gone the entire day. I want to avoid letting anyone Artsu their way through the day. I'm unsure how to apply this line of reasoning to those who haven't confirmed yet, as I want to give them a chance to get in the game, but I'm also wary about the possibility of them lurking extra hard in order to seem like they're really out of the game.

I want to see people squirm, we all have turns and someone's gotta go first :p

Attention is good for town non wolf folk, relish in it and thrive, push the wolfs into the limelight and drag their dirty tails in trails plain for all to see.

I'm on drugs and will be on a comedown soon, so don't mind me shitposting for a while because it feels right.

So on that note, Quicktwisty how do you perceive my approach and can I be trusted at all right now?

Guys he's consistently trolling, see the replies to pmj and rb for example, also brushes me off as just merely joking to deflect attention from himself and fails to take anything seriously, detracting as I see it from the game progressing!

(OK I know I'm a huge hypocrite but i don't care, fearless yo and a bit of early shit slinging never hurt anyone :D)

Well, a couple things.

What you suggest is ideal, but it kinda hinges on knowing who is Scum before you know who is Scum, which is rather counter-intuitive. Besides that, it largely depends on playstyle - knowing how someone will play what way. I keep saying this and people keep ignoring me.. catching Scum is about reading the player, not the action. As for what this means about you it is completely Null, since I have no idea what level of knowledge of the game you are playing on. If you have little knowledge/are just making a druggie post, then that would give me a Town read on you. If you know more than you are letting on, I would be inclined to think you are Scum. Can you be trusted? Like in life, trust is earned, not given. So basically, no, you can't be trusted yet. People who are trusted are people who everyone's Town reading or someone who is mechanically cleared via role reveals by other roles.

Depends what drug you're on, imo.


QT, I'd appreciate you taking your vote off me.
Naw. I'll leave it on you for now. You shouldn't be concerned for one lousy vote on you. My reason for voting you has expired, yes, but I'm floating my vote. Floating is a poker strategy where you call bets instead of raising. IDK if you are Scum.. I don't know who else to vote, so it stays on you for now. My vote is not doing much right now, you have nothing to fear.

I don't follow sorry, why does being open to attention rely on the scum already being identified?

I can see a town minu for example not like attention as they may feel its unwanted and could end as mislynch, although this is just me assuming potential noob reasoning which may not be the case. I just mean the way she described rb drawing bias in attention. I would like to see a scum minu be a bit more savvy than to react this way but also very possible. Deflecting attention defensively.

As for what I know, from my last scum game I'm now very aware of how effortlessly scum can blend in and know how important it is for town to identify each other and work in unison blocking the wolfs paths of manipulation.

Oh nice, I enjoy that one. I hope you didn't take it because of the game though, that would feel like a waste of some perfectly good molly, imo.

So to answer your question, I dunno if I'd say you yourself are trustworthy, but I trust that you're mentally sound.

You people are so demanding. Sigh. Fine.
Anything to be a bit lazier :D

The blue skies overhead suddenly turn a rather fabulous shade of of pink. The transition is accompanied by a roll of thunder.

Behold! A countdown clock doth appear at the town centre!

The sky is blue again. Please carry on about your business.
Thank you daddy. <3

Nah after putting off socisling for so long I decided I'd go to a club where everyone takes drugs and doesn't actually socialise very much. It was quite the experience. I now want to sleep but don't want to miss much here. Activity must spike!

Think about it. If there is attention on someone there is already people thinking that person could be Scum. So its an outlier that is already happening without having to actually come at things from that angle. You can't get the attention on someone without scumhunting them. For that reason, viewing someone as Scum comes at the same time that the attention is on them. Like I said, trust is earned. Everyone is guilty until proven innocent.

I can see a town minu for example not like attention as they may feel its unwanted and could end as mislynch, although this is just me assuming potential noob reasoning which may not be the case. I just mean the way she described rb drawing bias in attention. I would like to see a scum minu be a bit more savvy than to react this way but also very possible. Deflecting attention defensively.
Couple things here.
Min, if scum, is prolly trying to play townie, so it depends on whether you read the action as genuine or not. Secondly, you are basically saying that because she doesn't want attention on her that she is Town. By your own measurement, this should make them Scum, not Town. Think of Occam's Razor. What is the simplest explanation is usually the correct one.

As for what I know, from my last scum game I'm now very aware of how effortlessly scum can blend in and know how important it is for town to identify each other and work in unison blocking the wolfs paths of manipulation.
This is very true, but I don't see how it ties in to the conversation. I get that you are trying to detail what you know about this game, but beyond that I don't understand how it ties in. Explain?

OK I get the attention stuff.

With minu all I was saying is it could either be both scum or bad town, so yeah scum read. But in the hopes it is bad town which can show us otherwise.

Basically I tieing it to your own points that if I were scum taking some heat, I wouldn't even sweat as looking town isn't hard. At least in my limited game where I didn't even need to worry about finding power roles as they were dead already.
I'm struggling to explain myself better than this right now lol I'll try in a few hours once I sleep

I got into trouble with the mods the once, but when I was getting my wrists slapped I was high on MD and feeling really feely, my humbleness got me out of trouble.

I was reading it when I was sobre thinking, wtf, was I high?

The answer was yes, lol.
