There's been a healthy amount of interest in getting one of these games running. This thread is an official signups for the mafia game I'll be modding. The theme is 'Nations.' Don't worry if you've never played before, everything will be explained.How to mafia
In the "Off-topic" Forum will live a Day phase thread. During each day phase, two teams of mafia and town will compete in a battle of elimination. The town team is bigger than the mafia team, however the townies don't know who the other townspeople are. At the end of each day, town players attempt to unmask who the mafia are amongst them. The day ends with a public execution of the player with the majority vote.
At night time, the Dayphase ends and nobody has the opportunity to communicate. However, the mafia also have a private chat with each other and will determine which townie they will assassinate during the night. Meanwhile, each individual playing the game will use their private chat with the mod to utilise their role. These roles will be explained later.
The night ends and the dawn of the next day begins. The identity and affiliations of the person who was executed the previous day will be revealed, as well as the person who died in the night.Roles
Since this is a game of psychology, deduction and wit, a multitude of roles enabling mass misdirection, false leads, investigation and framing are in play. For example, a cop is a townie who investigates another player each night and learns if they are innocent or guilty. A tailor is a mafia who creates a bio for a particular player which is released upon their death instead of their real bio. The roles are endless, and literally every rule in the mafia textbook can be broken by a role.Rules
which cannot be broken:
- Never, ever communicate anything related to the game to another player outside the dayphase thread or another mod sanctioned communication medium. This game has a degree of trust between players.
- No alts. Unless you are in a hydra. A hydra is an Alt shared by two or more people. Generally only used by experienced players who want a challenge, but I'd rather you didn't Hydra.
- Fight for your objective at all times. If you are the Serial killer for instance, don't shoot someone who you know is a paranoid gun owner just because you think the game is unwinnable for you. Well balanced mafia games don't have a clear winning team until the very end, and I assure you my games are like that.
- Have some fun ;) Essentially the best players are those that read through lies and motives the best/lie and contrive the best. Who will it be??
