Mafia LXIV: MLS Mayhem Roles, Rules, and Player List

Roles

Townie Roles:

Taylor Twellman - Investigator
He’s the first to know about pretty much everything that happens in the league. Through his mysterious sources he can find the role of any other player.

Nick Rimando - Protector
The best goalkeeper in the league, his ability to consistently make incredible saves allows him to keep one player safe from mafia hits per night.

Landon Donovan - Vote Changer
As both maybe the best American to ever play the game and certainly the most influential, he’s able to use his incredible popularity to convince one person per night to vote for who he wants them to.

Clint Dempsey - Survivor
One of the toughest players the U.S. has ever produced, he’s able to grit through injuries. Because of his toughness, he is immune to mafia hits and is only able to be killed through the vote.


Mafia Roles:

Sunil Gulati - Godfather
As President of the U.S. Soccer Federation, he exerts his will over everything involving the sport. He can kill one player per night, and shows up as a townie in investigations.

Jurgen Klinsmann - Vote Nullifier
The head coach of the U.S. national team, Klinsmann can call one player per day up to play in an international match, preventing them from voting.

Don Garber - Rule Bender
As commissioner of Major League Soccer, he’s regularly accused of fudging the rules to favor big teams. Every night he can change one players position in the Allocation Order (more on that in a little bit) the following day.

Rules


The Allocation Order

The Allocation Order in Major League Soccer is designed as a competitive balance measure, to try to distribute players more evenly across the league. In this game, it is a central component to how things work.

To begin the game, players are assigned a random spot in the order. This position is used to determine the order in which night actions happen. The person at #1’s action is the first to occur, then #2, and so on.

All players using night actions or who voted for the player who is killed drop to the bottom of the order for the following day, while those who didn’t use an action or who voted for other players move up to fill those slots. Each player will receive a PM telling them their spot in the order at the beginning of each day.

A tie in the vote will be resolved through the allocation order. For instance, if the vote is tied between Khushrenada and Stevey, and the #1 player in the allocation voted for Stevey, he is the one who is killed.


Designated Players

The player who finishes with the second-most votes in a given day will be a Designated Player the next day. Ties in this are also resolved through the Allocation Order. In MLS, these players are paid significantly more than most other players, and in this game it means that player is automatically bumped up to #1 in the Allocation Order.


I realize this is fairly complicated, even though it's got nothing on how convoluted the actual MLS is. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them here.
