Mafia LXXXV: Metroid Dread. Day 1.
« on: March 23, 2020, 02:34:19 AM »

Story Post

My concept for the story this time around would be that the Space Pirates have discovered a planet R-J6TY with an unusual crystalline structure that seems to have created holes in the fabric of space and time allowing them to jump to various points of the Metroid timeline. Through one of these holes, they were able to encounter a Metroid on SR-388 before Samus's annihilation of the species there and bring it back. They were now experimenting with the Metroid and Crystal structure to see if they can manipulate it to their own ends in conquering the galaxy. (I'd like to have done this in the style of a Pirate Log or Lore post ala the Metroid Prime series. Like a Space Pirate report to High Command on the operation and how it is coming along.)

However, this Pirate report was intercepted by the Federation who ordered a team to go out and terminate the Space Pirate base and plan before it was too late. However, within the Federation Forces, a colonel was able to handpick the team of his choosing to send on the mission with orders unknown to other Federation Forces and leaders to not only take down the Pirates but also capture the Metroid and bring it back. The squad suits up with a lot of "ok"s back and forth between them.

Meanwhile, Anthony from Other M who's still in the Federation military learns about the intercepted Pirate logs and passes the info on to Samus. She races off to the planet to ensure the Metroid is kept out of the hands of both the Space Pirates and Federation.

Announcement Post


Hey all. Thanks for being patient with me in launching this game. Finally found our 16th player to get this game going. However, despite wanting to get this game launched right now, it is getting late for me and I have quite a bit of typing ahead of me. So, I'm going to try my best to get that done tomorrow morning and have this game started around 2:00 PM EST. Maybe even sooner if all goes well. At this point, I don't think another few hours will make much difference, right?  :-\

Make sure to check in tomorrow as roles will be handed out in the morning as well and the rules and abilities will be fleshed out then also. For now, I need to get my beauty sleep.  ;)

I might as well open up the Day 1 thread since the players have now been informed of their roles. The Day 1 thread will last until Wednesday March 25 10:00 PM EST or if a majority vote has been reached before then.

There are currently 18 players in the game so a majority vote of 10 would be required to end the day early.

I am double-checking my work on the rules and roles thread. One tweak I've been on the fence all day about yesterday and today is going to affect the Federation Mafia. I've run through some scenarios and have decided it can still keep things fair. That tweak you will see under the role of The Deleter aka Godfather. I'll mention there when it is posted.

Again, thank you so much for-ta playing my game.

Hi Shamus O'ran.  I am Gandrayda.  I am looking for my fellow bounty hunter Sammy.  Sammy is such a nice nickname for her.  See you around Shamus!

Thank youse fer comin' to da official Space Pirate employee meeting. Foist oider of buiisness. Folks 'ave been complainin' dat my joisy accent is makin me hahd to undestand. Those same folks 'ave been sent to the sun via an airlock. Now dat you've been wahned, anyone else with complaints about my accent will be punished fah mo' hashly.

Now on to da main topic of tonight's Space Pirate meeting. Apparently dose jokahs at the galactic federation have been mistaking these creatures fer yours truly and have been puttin' out bountys for folks to kill dem.



I mean loohk at dat hideous thing. It looks nothing like me. I am clearly far better lookin' dan dat faker.

Back on topic, supposedly dere's a whole planet with deese creatures running around, and what moah? dere's a bunch of folks called "Monster Hunters" who go around capturing or killing creatures like dat for a livin'. I'm about to swing on ovah dere and I'm gonna put a bounty for dem to capture as many of dese creatures as possible and den we'll just load dem up on a cargo freightah and send dem to Federation HQ. Dat's suire to freak dem all out and we can all just sit back and enjoy some popcohn.

And one lahst thing befoh we leave. Stop feeding da Metroids if yer not an authorized membuh of da metroid feeding crew. Getting yer head sucked off by a Chozo Bioweapon is not covahd by yer Health Insurance and Ahm not payin' fer yer medical bills eitha so don't even think 'bout it.

Throwing out a random vote for Lucario for today. This is entirely random so I don't expect folks to follow it.

unVote Lucario   

If folks want to chat with me and pick my brain go ahead and send me a distress signal and I will be sure to send my aid if I can.  That is just what Gandrayda does to help.

Backtracking is for chumps and bounty hunters.

The Quarantine Bay is here. Move quickly and quietly... You are still unable to use most of your latent abilities. Don't forget that, Samus. Stop at the Navigation Room on the way. Uplink from there. Is your objective clear?

(I'm going to break character for a moment to explain the current situation.

As I alluded to, I am the townie who has the metroid item. I have chosen to divulge this reason for two reasons, firstly, in order to possibly form a townie alliance down the line, but secondly, and more importantly, in order to acquire the doctor's protection so that one of the Samus players can't randomly kill me off and acquire the metroid.

Voting me out now is a terrible idea for everyone involved.

If I am voted out than the metroid will be randomly reassigned to another player which may include either the Samus or Dark Samus roles which this early on would prematurely end the game unless you get really lucky with tomorrow's vote, since them acquiring the metroid would trigger one of their win conditions.

For a townie the reason to keep me alive is pretty simple. Much like the last game, I am in a situation where I can serve as the public face for a possible townie alliance, relaying information from the detective and possibly allowing some degree of coordination between the detective and the vigilante.

For the mafia, the reason to not vote me out is pretty easy as well. You know I have the Metroid, and you cannot win without getting the metroid so keeping me alive for now means that whenever you decide to kill me off, the Metroid will be more likely to fall into your hands since the playerbase will have dwindled.

Right now there are 18 players in the game. 4 of them are mafia. If I am voted out now than there is less than a 1 in 4 chance that the metroid will fall into your hands. (there is also around a 1 in 8 chance that one of the Samuses will get the metroid which would be really bad.) Should the metroid fall into the hands of another townie which is the most likely scenario, that townie will likely choose not to divulge that they have the metroid since the last guy who did that got voted out so you'll just be back to not knowing where the metroid is.

For Samus or Dark Samus like with the Mafia, you know I have the Metroid. Voting me out will almost certainly cause the Metroid to fall into the hands of another player who you don't know the identity of and thus send you searching for a needle in a haystack.

As long as the doctor is alive, the Metroid will be safely in my hands. Anyone who has any interest in winning this thing is stuck with me.)

The Metroid is the only item that can be swapped among players

So does that mean poke can swap it and give it to someone else at will? Can we just hot potato it until we find (Dark) Samus and get a self destruct alert?

Just reading over the rules and roles it says whoever voted out the player with the Metroid would have a chance at getting the Metroid so as things stand now. Insanolord, ShyGuy or ejamer would have a chance of getting the Metroid if pokepal does have the Metroid.     

  I read further in the thread and it also said that if the Godfather gets it via hit or vote out chance then they can chose to guard it or have one of their federation forces guard it but that player won't be able to go on recon. 
So a few questions come to mind.

 Does the Godfather actually have to be one of the players that votes out the Metroid player to be able to have a chance at getting the Metroid?   Can the Deleter(Godfather) sit back and have one of their goons vote out the Metroid player for a chance at the Metroid and bring it back with them to the Federation side but that goon who got it has to keep it till they die?   

 How does that work for these questions Khushrenada?
