After a bit of development delay in the Mafia cycle, Mafia 75 is here! Is your body ready?


The Theme: The Legend of Zelda. Amazingly, it is our first time using it.


Launch Date: Oct. 9, 2017.  Sign-ups will be open until the evening of Oct. 8, 2017. Please make a note of this.


Sign-Ups

Signing up for this game is going to be a bit different this time around. For this game, anyone that actually wants to sign-up must PM me and let me know.

Why is that? Because for this game, every player is going to get a new account to play the game with thereby giving them a new identity. With sign-ups hidden, players are not going to know exactly who has signed up and who they are playing against. Thus, people can claim to sign up without actually having done so (which would be sad) or they can claim not to have signed up even though they have (a much better choice). Players are free to reveal their true identity to someone if they wish but they are also free to claim that they are anyone they wish to as well.

I've been curious to see what would happen if we had a sort of blank slate without players knowing a person's play history and how good or poorly they may do in the game. What happens when you don't have those starting preconceived notions? We can find out in this new grand Mafia experiment.

Roleplaying

When signing up for the game, you can let me know if there is a specific Zelda character you wish to roleplay. It could be anything from a main character like Ganondorf to an enemy like a Skulltala or any NPC character that may have appeared in the series. (I'm betting Tingle goes fast. ;) ) You can also figure out your choice and PM me with it at a later date before the game begins. If you have not chosen a character then I will randomly choose something for you.

Roleplaying isn't necessary nor will a player be penalized by the host for not bothering to engage in it. However, since all players will have a new identity, their identity (username and avatar) will be the character they wish to roleplay. It just makes sense to make the role play immersion greater this way since I have the mod powers to do so. Therefore, if you don't want to get stuck as a Deku Scrub (or if you do) then choose a character before the game launches.

In order to know what characters have been selected for roleplaying, I will update this post with the new account identities we can expect to see in the game.



The Rules
(plagiarized from Pyropizm)


Every game day, each player is allowed to vote for whomever they believe is mafia. Since all roles remain anonymous, mafia members will vote along with the townies.

For each game day, a new thread will be made and will open up with a narrative.  Each player then has the chance to vote off another player.  Simply type in BOLD for whom you wish to vote.  You may change your vote as much as you like.

Every night, the mafia is able to make one hit. These are not based on calendar numbers, but rather on game days. The player who is able to send in the hit order will be informed by the host as to who has that ability.

For the townies to win, they must remove all mafia members from the game.

For the mafia to win, they only need to tie the game. I.E., there are two townies left and two mafia members left.

There may be some exceptions to this based on some special roles. Make sure you are familiar with the roles of the game and their win conditions so as to not be surprised when the game is in action.


Majority Vote Rule

In past versions, Mafia game days often lasted 24 hours. For this game, the length is going to vary.

Each game day can last a maximum of 48 hours or so. I will mention what the maximum day length period will be each day in the Announcements post. However, if the players come to a majority vote before that day's deadline and that vote holds for 2 hours, then the day will end and a night period will begin. So, let's imagine there are 16 players and 9 players vote Player A, 3 vote for Player B and 1 votes for Player C. In this case, Player A would be voted out provided there's no change in Player A's vote total in the 2 hours from the 9th vote which is what makes the vote a majority vote. The day would end after the 2 hours wait even if there was still 16 hours left before the 48 hour mark.

Let's say that the 9th vote was cast for Player A but an hour later, the 7th person to vote Player A decides to change their vote from Player A to Player B. However, 30 minutes after that change, another player logs on and votes for Player A restoring the 9 votes against Player A. In this example, Player A would not be eliminated in 30 minutes from the new 9th vote. The majority vote was lost in between that 2 hour period. Even though it was restored in that period, a new 2 hour period starts from when the new 9th vote cast.

In the case of 16 players, 9 votes is the majority. Even if other players hadn't voted yet, it doesn't matter since all the remaining votes combined could only equal 7 which is a minority vote. If a majority vote isn't reached before 48 hours is up, then who ever has the most votes at the end of the 48 hour period is the one voted out. So, if the votes are 6 for Player A, 5 for Player B, and 3 for Player C, then Player A is voted out because of having the highest vote total even though 2 players didn't vote and could have put Player B in a higher vote total.

Again, days won't necessarily have to last 48 hours but the possibility is always there.


More details to come so stay tuned to this thread.

If you private message me that you are signing up and ask to be the role then I can make you a Hetsu account. After all, the actual request will still be in a PM so no one can know for sure if actually followed through on the request.

Alright! Just got our first legit sign-up today.

Again, to sign up, you have to pm to let me know. You don't have to know what character you want your identity to be yet in order to sign-up. The brave hero who stepped forward today didn't so don't let that hold you back at first.

You never know....

We are up to 7 participants at the moment. Maybe there will be more if some people correctly sign-up for the game.  :rolleyes:

I would love to see between 26-30 players so we can have two competing mafias but I guess we'll see if we can dig up more participants to do that. Only 20 more players to go, right?!

If you are in contact with any old time forum members / players that might be interested in one more anonymous kick-at-the-mafia-can, let 'em know about this game.

I'm currently on a bit of a vacation (so nice to have one and not being hosting a Safe Words game at the same time) so my presence on the forum has diminished a bit. Just taking some time right now to catch up and starting laying out some more details for the game.

Sorry guys but I won't join until Mafia 76, which will be themed around Zelda Rip-off games. Still debating whether to claim dibs on Krystal from Star Fox Adventures, someone from Okami, or one of the garden gnomes from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets!

So, as you may have noticed, I have subtly moved the starting date of the game a week. I've done this for a few reasons. One is that I've wanted to send out a follow mass PM to all Mafia players like when I announced my intention to get us to Mafia 75 and give some of those past players a chance to join. Second, I was away on holidays and all I had was my phone and then I got sick on the last half so I've been recovering from that. As such, it slowed down my goal of getting all the information for the game up and ready. (Reminiscing on Metroid and talking about Star Trek Discovery ain't speeding things up either. Darn you, TV!!!) Third, I do want to see about posting up the player number. Would like to see the current number doubled and think we can could do that since some people have signed up in this thread and yet haven't pm'd me so they may not have read the rules. Tsk tsk.

A couple things I just will fill you on. I plan on going with the majority vote rule again. I think it helps give people a bit more chance to play and helps if people are busy or don't have a chance to check in every day.

The roles will be based on items not characters. So, Eye of Truth would be the townie detective, for instance. Thus, if you want to roleplay as a villainous character, feel free since characters won't be tied to mafia roles.

Third, there will be prizes. Yay!

Fourth, I'll start creating the new accounts for this game and getting those ready. Make sure you know your own user password to get back into your account as you will have to switch back and forth in order to play the game. I will be providing you with the name of your new account and the password to access it in a pm. And when you are eliminated, that new account gets banned. How dare you have a dupe account on these forums!

Thank you for your patience. Please understand.

Also, I'll be claiming the role of Link as host. I've decided that will work best for story purposes. That role is off the table. Consult the list for other roleplaying characters that have also been claimed if you haven't submitted in a choice yet.
