----

The TWIST:

This game is an open setup. You KNOW that the following and only the following are in the game:
15 Townies
2 Town Masons
5 Mafia

However, what roles you have is a bit trickier. Roles will be assigned via draft.

How does this draft work you say?

Everyone will, when they /in, send me a PM with two numbers between 1 and 15 (X,Y). The first number closest to 1 that no one else picks will get first pick. The next closest that no one picks will get second, etc. If you pick a X number that someone else has the Y number closest to 1 no one has picked will get to pick next. If two people have the exact same numbers then I will random.org.

Once all players that have the first number are done, all 2 numbers, then three:

An Example Draft:

Player 1: 4,9
Player 2: 1,4
Player 3: 3,5
Player 4: 1,7
Player 5: 1,4
Player 6: 15,15
Player 7: 15,14

The draft order would be:
Player 3
Player 1
Player 7
Player 6
Player 4
Players 2/5 based on random.

---

The Draft:


Once the order is done, you will then straight down the list attempt to pick a power role. If someone above you on the list has picked that role you will be vanilla.

Note: The mafia and masons will be able to talk before the draft begins for a period of approximately 24 hours.

The roles:

Cop wrote:Each night you may target a player. If successful, you will get a result of town or mafia.

Even Night Vig wrote:Each even night (2,4,etc) you may target a player. If successful, you will kill this player.

Odd Night Vig wrote:Each odd night (1,3,etc) you may target a player. If successful, you will kill this player

Weak Doctor wrote:Each night you may target a player. If that player is town, you will protect them from any and all kills that night. If that player is scum, you will die. You may NOT protect yourself.

Bomb wrote:You are the bomb. If you are successfully killed at night you will explode killing all players that targeted you.

Fruit Vendor wrote:Each night you may target a player. If successful, you will give them a delicious piece of fruit of your choice. The fruit does nothing.

Watcher wrote:Each night you may target a player. If successful, you will see all players who targeted that player that night.

Tracker wrote:Each night you may target a player. If successful, you will see all players that player targeted that night.

Role Cop wrote:Each night you may target a player. If successful, you will be given a result of what role that player has.

Universal Backup wrote:You will be given a copy of the first power role eliminated (lynch or night action) in this game. If multiple are killed simultaneously random.org will be used to decide your role.

Gunsmith wrote:Each night you may target a player. If successful, you will get a result of "Gun" or "No Gun". You are confident that only the Mafia, Cops and Vigs possess guns.

Neighborizer wrote:Each night you may send me two names. These two players may then communicate outside the thread. You may send your own name as one of the names.

Jailkeeper wrote:Each night select a target. That target will be unable to perform any night actions and will be protected from any and all night kills. You may NOT target yourself.

Redirector wrote:Each night you may send me the name of a player and a target. Any actions that player performs will go to the target you specify.

2-Shot Janitor wrote:Twice during this game you may select a player. If that player dies that night they will flip ??? instead of their role.


----

General notes:

1.) The empowerer.... isn't in this game!
2.) All anti-town factions have in addition to their powers if any the ability to have a member perfom a kill. Yes, that means they can use their power AND kill.
3.) All players have the same win condition: You win when all threats to your faction are eliminated or nothing can prevent the same from happening.
4.) This is a BaM game. Be clear with the rules. I'd rather have this wait to fillup versus having to perform ANY modkills. Please, please do not make me modkill.
5.) I do reserve the right to not allow players in.
6.) Props go out to SomethingAwful for this idea that I am straight up stealing!
7.) I'm going to put votecounts at the top of the pages.
8.) When you confirm you will get your Alignment.

Game Related Questions:
*.) What happens if a bomb is doc protected and a kill goes through?
a.) Nothing. Bomb activates on a successful kill attempt.

*.) What happens if the rolecop targets a mason?
a.) The rolecop will only get a result of what power they may possess. Mason is inherent.

*.) What happens when everyone picks the same role?
a.) You get a mostly mountainous game! Cheers all around!

*.) Isn't putting questions here going to give people some extra insight into what has been picked?
a.) You think that all these questions were asked by people? ;) WIFOM the mod if you want - its kind of the spirit of this game![/quote]

I'm town this game. So, I am going to start playing now.

Janitor is a pretty potent role for scum as it opens up more fakeclaiming options and deprives the town of information as alignment and role don't flip. Along with the vigs and redirector, these roles are the likeliest to cripple the town, and any townies in the top 10 slots should consider going for these roles, because if they fall into the hands of scum, it's a pretty big bonus for them. Even if your selection doesn't get you the role, it's valuable information to narrow down where that role could possibly be if it looks like it's being used in a pro-scum way.

The last PYP game many players claimed not to fully understand how the draft system works, so I urge those still unsure about things to ask questions.

I'm not fully sure how the draft system works in so much as the number picking stuff, but as long as I know what I'm dealing with once the list is up, that wouldn't bother me so much, as I highly doubt the mod's going to screw about with the system anyways.

If allowed (As I've only one completed game on this site, but a few others elsewhere), I shall /in.

Also, as for the Vigs/redirector/janitor, they're great for scum roles true, however if most townies go for them early on, then town runs the risk of being full of vanillas instead of power roles that could help us. Which is they've ended up in scum hands, will screw town over royally.

It's difficult to understand it first shot, I think, and I have trouble explaining it any more eloquently than it is already described. You're basically trying to win the draft by guessing the lowest unique number (that's your X number). The Y number is just used to separate ties. Maybe the draft from the last game will help show how it's decided.
