Mafia 81: Skyrim sign up thread. Sign ups end August 10th.
« on: July 03, 2019, 04:05:23 PM »
I'd been planning to do this for a while but I felt like going ahead and posting a sign up thread to ride on the Thirsty Mage's Skyrim Episode.

The game will start sometime at the end of the month, it will use that majority rule, and I'll have a full rules list up soon on this thread.

I do want to encourage role-playing for this one. Skyrim is full of wonderful colorful characters that can easily be roleplayed even by people who haven't played the game. I'll try to come up with some suggestions for you all so contact me for info on that if you're interested.

All players are capable of casting votes in the day thread to determine which player will be eliminated from the game.

Townie roles
Townie roles win if every player who has a mafia or third party role has been removed from the game. If you have a townie role your best course of action is to ally yourself with other players to form a so called townie Alliance that can hopefully seek out players with non townie roles so they can be eliminated from the game. Beware: Players with non-townie roles will likely attempt to infiltrate your townie alliance and influence it's actions for their own nefarious purposes.

Townie roles are not aware of each other's identities. It is on them to determine which players have townie roles and which players have roles that require them to be eliminated to ensure a townie win.

---

Eltrys: Detective - can have a single player investigated to learn their role during the night period.

Bothela: Doctor - the Town's Potion shop owner. Can protect a single player during the night period.

Adara; Child role: Cannot be killed by any means whatsoever. However any votes made by this player will not be counted unless there is a tie and they have cast a vote that would normally break the tie, or if the vote they cast creates a majority large enough to end the day period entirely.

Markarth citizen: standard townie role. Can message the host to have a vote they cast during the day period count for double. This ability can only be used once for the entirety of the game.

Mafia:
Mafia roles win if the number of players with mafia roles outnumber the number of people with living townie roles left in the game (excluding Adara) and if the player with the Dark Brotherhood Assassin role has been eliminated. The players know who each other are and while they collectively have the ability to remove another player from the game during the night period it is also recommended that they coordinate with each other during the day thread.

---

Forsworn Conspiracy leader: Can have a single player killed during the night period and if investigated comes up as a Markarth citizen.

Forsworn Conspirator 1: Gains the Forsworn Conspiracy leader's kill ability if the forsworn conspiracy leader is killed.

Forsworn Conspirator 2: Gains the Forsworn Conspiracy Leader's kill ability if the forsworn Conspiracy Leader and Conspirator #1 are killed.

the Killer

The killer can remove another player from the game much like the mafia can. There is only one killer which is both a blessing and a curse: It's a blessing in that it means you don't have any companions who, if killed, could lead other players to deduce your identity but it's a curse because there's only one of you so if you're eliminated there is no hope for remaining players to win the game for you. There is one Killer role planned for this game which is as follows:

---

Dark Brotherhood Assassin: Can remove a single player from the game during the night period.


---

Miscellaneous rules:

This game uses a variation of the 48 hour majority rule used in recent mafia games that features the following change to create more consistency in when the day will begin and when the day's scheduled endtime is.

Each day thread will begin at 11pm CST.

The night period will be required to last for at least 12 hours so if a majority is established tonight at 6pm CST for example the night period will last until tomorrow at 11pm CST. During the night period players with roles capable of submitting night actions may do so.

A majority is defined as the majority of currently living players casting a vote for the same person. If there are 9 players and 5 of those players choose to vote for Khushrenada than as long as that majority holds for an hour than the day period will end, regardless of when the day period was originally meant to end.

As mentioned if there is a tie than the person with the Adara role may send me a PM during the night period to break the tie.

Sure, I'm in. Don't really know anything about Skyrim besides that video of the guy who reads all the in-game books, and the fact someone modded in Thomas the Tank Engine as a dragon or something.

Things picked up for me all of a sudden so I haven't had time to get a rules and roles thread started. I decided to have the game set in Markarth and have the flimsy excuse for a story be loosely based on the quest, "The Forsworn Conspiracy." I'll get this stuff sorted and a rules thread up in the next few days though.

I loved that quest! Was a highlight for me because of how I got there and started it as well as my attempts to get everything by playing both sides.

I'll be sure to regale the tale during the game for sure.

Oooh, that's a good one, especially since apparently anyone who gets soul trapped ends up in some weird purgatory.

Not saying I am in but how many players are you expecting for the game for the roles you have pokepal?

I'm in, and I'll be playing as the character I associate most with Skyrim and the Elder Scrolls series in general, namely the one and only Jon Lindemann.

He can always just play as one of Jon's 18 unplayed copies of Oblivion.

Lindemann jokes just make themselves really. He's been too honest about how he plays games!

I've been out of town, so the deadline snuck upon me. Sign me up! I'll have to read up about The Forsworn Conspiracy since I only know about Skyrim in the broadest strokes. Haven't actually played the game.
