Godzilla Mafia Sign-Up Thread
« on: January 02, 2014, 05:44:45 PM »
Godzilla Mafia Sign Up is now in order:Rules will be posted below.Dates:  Monday Jan. 20th will be the start of the game.  I haven't decided times for ending and beginning days.  Being in Korea, I need to think about the best situation, since my days are strange.  The more people sign up the more Monster mayhem I can do.  So please join and lets kick of 2014 giant monster style.

Mafia:  The Monsters.  I haven't decided which monsters will be featured, but I do know they will have special abilities.  The special abilities will work like this.  The mafia can choose to either kill someone or use a monsters special ability.  To use the special ability THAT monster with the ability must PM the action to me.  No two special abilities can be performed two days in a row.  However killing is not considered a special ability so the mafia can always kill instead of using a monster's ability, and can kill every day.It is important to communicate as mafia and plan your actions, because if I get a special ability PM, I will do that as the overriding action even if a hit is put in.  (Obviously, if you contact me before the time limit is up, then I can cancel actions and do the actions the mafia desire.)

Special Abilities include:
Counter Attack:  Counter Attacks, prevent the targeted player from using their ability the next day.  It has a delayed result.  So if you use it on Day 1 night action.  The Day 2 action is canceled for the targeted player.  Freeze Attack:  This ability can cancels 2 players votes.  This does not change their vote, but prevents them from voting.  This action does not have a delayed effect, and can be used to change the results of the vote for that day.
Optic Camouflage:
  This ability can hide the identity of all mafia members for the next day.  It has a delayed result.  When Camouflage is activated, It will be posted the monsters are in hiding.  The investigator role will not be able to use their action this turn.  If they do they will get no information back townie or otherwise.   Monsters can still be voted out and killed by Godzilla or a Vigilante if the game has one. 


Godzilla is the killer role.
His motivation is to stop the invading monsters, and to protect the fairy twins.  Therefore, Godzilla can win the game if all monsters are killed and the fairy twins are still alive.  If the fairy twins die Godzilla must win by killing everyone…and his anger will give him boosted abilities.  Godzilla acts just like the mafia.  He has special abilities and hits.  Godzilla can choose to kill a player, but if he randomly kills the fairy twins he loses his special ability for the game. 

Special abilities include

1) Energy Absorption.
  Godzilla can save energy to do an extra kill the next day.  Energy absorption is a delayed effect.  So night one, Godzilla absorbs energy.  Night 2, he can kill 2 people.  This ability can be stacked multiple times. 
2) If the twin fairies are killed then Godzilla gains an ability: Revenge.  He gains the ability to perform a second hit the next day, IF he either kills a monster or the player that killed the twin fairies.  If the fairies are killed by the vote there is no bonus against the player whom killed the twins.  This is a delayed ability.  So for example.  The fairies are dead and Godzilla attacks the monsters day 2 and kills one.  Day 3 he has two attacks he can perform.  These can be stacked just like the charge attacks.  However, Godzilla can only get one bonus a day.  So if Day 3 he kills 2 Monsters, he will not get 3 attacks Day 4, but only 2 attacks. 

-
Baby Zilla:  If we have enough players.  I will add in this special role. Baby Zilla is a marked townie, that will become Godzilla after Godzilla dies.  Unless Godzilla is the last monster killed, in which a townie victory is declared.  The idea of this role is to give Godzilla the ability to effect the game more.  The original may die.  However, a new player hidden in the townies will rise up.  If Baby Zilla is investigated while in townie mode…he will appear to be a townie.  However, if he takes the role of Godzilla he is investigated as Godzilla.  Baby Zilla does not have any special abilities and therefore will only act as the normal killer role. 

Townie Roles:


Fairy Twins:
  Townies that know each other.  If we have enough players to make a fair team for the townies, then if one of the fairies die, they both die together. 


Scientists:
  The Scientists can investigate a player to find their role.  Or they can try to heal a player.  They can heal monster attacks, or can perform a special heal to protect against the vote out, but  lose the ability to do an action the next day.


EDF:
  They are the Vigilante.  If they kill a townie or the scientists they will die, but they can kill the mafia, Godzilla, or the fairy twins with no penalty.  Instead of attacking the EDF can Perform a special action and change the vote of a player to a different player. 
Those are my basic ideas for abilities.  I think the game should be balanced with a fairly interesting play mechanic devised on teams choosing abilities to use.  Anyway, please sign up if you are interested in playing.

Special rule for ties.  I will only kill the characters in a tie.  So remember townies if you want to win you better have decisive votes because there are special powers that can create ties.  Also EDF, you will be a protector for the townies to prevent ties or cause them to trap mafia members.

Zing! What a burn! Oh wait.....

Since I clearly have missed my chance to retire while at the top, I guess I'll just have to play until I die. Or am banned.

I'm in. Don't want to choose a character without knowing what the monsters are. That said, I'll probably just being a screaming-in-terror and running-away-from-the-destruction Japanese citizen. With the way things went last game, I have a feeling that role may prove to be very accurate for me this game.

Good on you for trying it again Pixpix!

The tricky part is catching all of the tweaks each host gives to the game. It is a bit like playing a board game such as Monopoly at a different friend's house each night with their family's home rules in play. It makes for some fun and varied experiences that keep the game fresh.


You will begin to grasp the core rules as you play more often. Biggest common trip ups are start/end times for each day and the night action period. Everything else is role specific.

Sorry, the rules are a little strange, I tried to make them interesting.

Basically Mafia can either Kill or perform an action.  Same with Godzilla.  Then for townie roles I tried to make roles that are harder to use have more power and uses.


Also, I like to experiment with roles that are interconnected roles.  Like Godzilla who is a killer, but can have a penalty for killing the wrong person...or get a bonus for others killing them. 


We will see how it works.  I think it should be balanced.  Since the monsters can not kill if they use a special power it is one or the other.

Monster announcements:
I want to go classic Godzilla so I decided the Mafia will be more classic villains.  The number of mafia members depends on how many players.  In the line up for sure are:

Ghidorah:  Most likely the Godfather
Gigan
Rodan

The next two monsters that could make it are: 
Anguirus and King Caesar, but at the rate of signup I don't think we will see them.

As for time schedule.

Days will end at 12:00pm South Korean time, and you will have 30-45 minutes to do night actions.  I know this is ended early for some, but it is the best time for me. 

If this makes the game impossible for many to play, I can push it to 1:00pm.



Players so far:
mop it up
Pokepal 148
Stevey
jrlibrarian
stratos
Khushrenada
NWR_insanolord
PixelatedPixies
lolmonade

Please let me know if I missed any, and invite some friends for me.

Also, I like to have a ratio 1 to 3.  So if we have 9 players, we will only have 3 mafia, and 1 Godzilla…(no resurrection.)  I will also edit powers for balance.  I would like to at least get 15 players, so I can add 1 more Mafia, and give Godzilla his resurrection through Baby Zilla.

Thanks.  with 11 players.  I might add 1 more mafia member.  4 Mafia 1 Godzilla and 6 townies...eek...hmmm....Maybe, I can't add another mafia member until I get twelve.  Talk about hard odds to beat.  3-1-7 is more balanced.

Nope.  I will make do with what I have.  Actually, if I was to do anything…I would just make me a player and make me Mafia…and then hit everyone of importance…or make me Godzilla and do that.

Obviously, I can't and won't.

No, a smaller game with a 3 person mafia is fine.  It gives the townies some breathing room and sense the mafia have additional abilities to help them in their conquest it will be balanced.

With 11 players, and the possibility of 3 deaths a day…then it will take 3 days for the mafia to beat the townies.  But the odds change greatly if one mafia player is killed.

Sign Ups are closed.

My tomorrow…better known as in your Sunday afternoon starts Day 0.

Day 0 will begin the story, and will have roles sent out, and will allow you to post who you are going to be in the game…if you are role-playing. 

It looks like we will have a smaller game this time, but hopefully we can get a full weeks play from the game.
