Mafia L: Story of a Pivotal Town Signup Thread
« on: April 18, 2011, 06:58:17 AM »
Roles:
The Madness:  The Madness has taken you.  You must now choose a target to have a chance to kill it .
At night:  The mechanic works as a 50% chance to kill a target since madmen are sloppy, attempt is not guaranteed to be known.  If someone effected by The Madness is the target of a Mafia Hit there is a 50% chance that instead of performing their intended kill the randomly chosen Mafia Hitter will be killed instead this will be known and the entity with The Madness will survive otherwise they will die from the Mafia hit.  Someone with The Madness will receive sanity when protected by The Saving Spirit.  Since The Madness is effectively countered you return back to your normal state instead of being safe for the night. If you survive both The Madness and The Saving Spirit will be known to each other in the Morning.  The Madness and The Saving Spirit will need more time to find viable hosts after this countering and will not be in play the next night.  Also any role that has an ability will not be able to use them while affected by The Madness.
Day:  Since Madness is mad someone with The Madness may strike during the day but, run a 75% chance to reveal their role in doing so.  If Countered by The Saving Spirit you will both be known to each other for that day.  Victims will be informed regardless of Reveal if the kill is successful.  Any action that is designated before the kill will count if after will not.  Once the kill happens consider yourself dead at that point.  All rules apply.
Vote:  If someone with The Madness is voted out but successfully completes there kill for the night, not during the day, it is deemed they have escaped.  Hence being put back to a normal state by The Saving Spirit will guarantee death from vote.
Essentially someone effected by The Madness can only cause 1 death.

Inspector: Chooses 1 person to inspect per night.  This inspection will always happen except for if the Inspector is taken during the day or has The Madness.  Inspections will reveal all roles, ex. it could reveal Ceric: Townie, The Madness.  If the Inspector is removed from play for any reason during the night they may choose 1 player to have a 50% chance to relay the inspections results.  If the results are successfully relayed the inspector will not be told if they are not the inspector will be told what their dieing inspection was.  With this mechanic the Inspector will have the honor of knowing they were removed from play before the morning story.  They may also choose to just designate someone when they put their target in.

Mafia: 1 hour before the Vote is up all votes must be in for a hit.  If there is no votes for a target or if the majority of mafia give a vote of "No Hit" there will be no target for the night.  Initially the Mafia will not know one another.  There will be at least 1 reveal attempt a night but, I reserve the right to modify how fast/often reveals will happen.  In a typical night every Mafia Member will randomly have a player catch their eye.  They will not know who that player is.  If it turns out that the random player is a mafia member the observing player will be informed who they are.  Here's the other wrinkle.  If the randomly chosen player is affected by either The Madness or The Saving Spirit regardless of true role/faction the mafia member will be told only that they are the The Madness or The Saving Spirit for that night.  Further hidden customization for story purposes will be allowed for Mafia Members, more in PM.

The Saving Spirit:  You may target 1 individual to be safe during the night phase.  The target must be put in by 1 hour before the end of voting.  If the target is effected by The Madness you will save the target from The Madness thus turning them normal.  Normal meaning that while you have saved a life from The Madness they are now no longer safe from Votes and Hits.

Townie:  Look Cute and Vote ;P
Voting:
Day: Voting Period (Was thinking 9a-9p CST)
Night: Non-Voting Period (Was thinking 9p-9a CST)

Voting:  From 9a-8p CST you may change your vote.  Once 8p CST comes around whatever your last vote is will be final.  If you have not voted yet from 8p-9p you are allowed to place a single vote that cannot be changed.  Votes will only be taken in the public vote thread.  All other actions will need to be PMed.
Setting:  This Mafia will take place in a town about the size and density of Chicago.  The year will be 20xx so Robots while not common are starting to integrate into society. If you really want to play one you can.  Life has yet to be found on other planets so, there are no aliens.  I’m pretty flexible on what the common denizens of the world is just nothing to way out there.  In general there needs to be a common whatever.
Win Condition:  Last Mafia is dead or Last Mafia is possessed by The Saving Spirit.
Signup: April 18, 2011 – April 23, 2011
Game:  Roles go out on April 24, 2011 and the first day is April 25, 2011.  April 26, 2011 will be the first day that action results are given, and The Madness and The Saving Spirit will come into play.

I guess I will sign up.Its really early so the rules I'll ask about later. For the Ratio of Mafia to townies I think it is 1 mafia for every 4 townies. Somebody correct me if that isn't right.

I updated the Rules a little but clarifying a few things that I thought had to much wiggle.  Also put the rules in an outline form that I believe is easier to follow.

Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

Should be able to.  I personally just read the outline one I find them easier to read.

Pretty much boils down to:

If Townie:
Vote

If Mafia:
Vote
Vote for Hit

If Inspector:
Vote
Give Inspection Target
Give if Die Relay

If Madness:
Vote
Choose Kill target.  Decide Day or Night

Saving Spirit:
Vote
Choose Someone to Save

Then any action that can save or kill someone needs to be in an hour before vote close at latest.  Thats all I'm really asking for.  The Madness is in to make the game a little less lock step predictable.  Mafia Reveal Mechanic is driven by the story.

All the rules are there so you know I'm not just arbitraly making things up but, my hope is this will play like a game with a Doctor, Mad Bomber, Mafia, Inspector, Townies.  With a noticeable differense of spreading the Doctor and Mad Bomber role around to different players.
