[MAFIA] GAME OVER - FREQUENCY MAFIA

I feel bored. How odd.

Here's a mafia game. It has some special rules in addition to the normal rules, but I'm not telling you anything, other than it takes advantage of non-vanilla existing.

Here's the normal rules that still apply (stole from CAVE's last game):

Before the game begins, each player is sent a PM assigning him or her a role. The contents of the PM cannot be shared with other players. All roles are assigned randomly. There are three basic types of roles that you can get: Town, Mafia and Independent.

Town
If you are part of the Town, then your objective as a group is to stay alive and try to find out who the Mafia are. Since you cannot communicate with other players outside of this thread, you must work together and weed out who is lying and who is not. Townies who die still win when the rest of the town wins.

Mafia
The Mafia (aka Scum) on the other hand, have a significant advantage over the Town. They can communicate with other scum members outside the thread at any time. During the night, they can come together, discuss, and kill a townie. If all goes according to their plan (which it might not), then that townie will be dead -thus cannot post or vote- for the rest of the game.


If all Mafia are killed, then The Town Wins!
If enough Town-aligned people are killed that the amount of Mafia is greater than or equal to the amount of Town-aligned people, The Mafia Wins!
If an Independent successfully survives and satisfies their win condition, they Win!

Game Structure:
The game starts out in something called a day phase. In this phase, all players who are not dead may participate in discussion as well as vote for who gets lynched (note that you can also vote for no one getting lynched). The day phase will continue until a set deadline has passed or when deciding vote is reached.
Once the day phase is finished, the night phase begins. No one may talk in the thread during this phase, meaning that only players with night actions play a significant role. Night actions are abilities possessed by special roles that can be used to alter the game during the night phase. All night actions, including the scum's kill, will be sent to me via PM(unless otherwise stated). Once the night phase deadline is reached or when all actions are sent in, I will PM everyone involved with their results and then a new day phase will begin. If anyone dies, then that person will be revealed.

Rinse and repeat until the game is over...

The Rules:
1. VOTING: Voting should look like this:
#Lynch Jeroen_Sol or #NoLynch
And if you wish to change your vote, first cancel your first vote like this:
#Cancel
It needs to be bold and with a # in front of it, to make it easier for me to make vote counts.

2. PARTICIPATE: It's not very fun when half of the players are always missing in action and only have a few posts. Try to post a few times during each day phase and contribute to the discussion in some way. This is also very important for the town's survival. If you don't participate, you are at high risk of being modkilled or replaced.

3. DON'T CHEAT: Although it'd be difficult for me to find out, just don't do it anyway. You'd be ruining the fun of the game. And if I DO find out...

4. IF YOU ARE DEAD, STAY DEAD: This game does not involve zombies. If you die, then don't post anymore. This of course doesn't apply if your role specifically allows you to speak while dead.

5. EDIT RULE: NEVER EVER EDIT POSTS.

6. DO NOT QUOTE PMs: Never quote from a PM I send you. Creating false PMs is also forbidden. You may paraphrase information from PMs, but never literally quote them.

7. ANTI-STALLING RULES:
- 1: If nobody dies two day and night phases in a row due to any faction withholding kills, the game ends in favour of whichever faction(s) did not withhold their kill in those two day and night phases, or was the last to do so if all factions did.
- 2: If a nolynch happens at MYLO ("Mislynch-and-Lose"; non-scum = scum + 2), scum must attempt to kill the following night phase.


Vanilla town role PM for posterity or whatever.

You relax, leaning back into your chair. You've been a bit worried about the mafia recently, but as you drift asleep, you have nothing but sweet dreams.

Too bad it's about to get a lot worse.

You're vanilla town.

Nothing reveals Humanity so well as the games it plays. A game of betrayal, where the most suspicious person is brutally murdered? How savage.

Oh it's already up!

I can't join this one since I helped Odd with it, but have fun everyone!

Also gotta love that my rules are so well-stolen now that the stolen copies themselves also get stolen again.

I did edit it slightly so that it's obvious that scum can talk whenever.

I am now certain that you are not scum and are just town trying to play scum as hard as possible.

The minor edits I made after stealing your rules (as I always do), made their way into CAVE's game and now Odd's as well.

At least copy them correctly with all the coloured names though. You guys are doing the equivalent of filming a tv screen to pirate a movie.

I will join. And then I will probably experience mafia burnout.

I'm not fit to play another game yet, I'm getting too old for this stuff.

But I would love to hang out in the dead chat with Jeroen, Odd.

You should be happy that this is the version where I wrote your name correctly.

This is definitely a potential problem, especially with me and PA both not playing.

Not joining, of course. Mostly, posting this because of the title of this particular thread.

i will play. I'm also doubtful as to the 13 players.

if it appears that that is the way the wind is blowing, i have a light-hearted setup for 10 players I can run in the meantime (unless someone else really wants to run one.) I think that number is feasible, and it will be a stress-free game. probably. the only requirement is that piano plays.

Now that's an interesting and totally coincidental requirement.

I'm not joining just yet cause pc is dead. The hard drive should fix it but it's still not a 100% guarantee. Random restarts is such an annoying thing to diagnose. I have good reason to suspect that the culprit is the hard drive though.

Will post again when my new hard drive arrIves next week and I've tested it.

Itll be tough to gather that many so I'll doubt it'll start without me.

I'll add you to the list of people who might make it.

So what would be your descriptions for PA and me, Odd?

PA: "CAVE's alternate account?"

Jeroen_Sol: "RMN's man of mafia returns."
