The view from the spire of Cattedrale di San Caedwalla is one to die for. It overlooks the entirety of the small town- well, hamlet, really- of Condannati, and lends a view into the vineyards that stretch down from the hill upon which the town rests to the valley far below. The town is practically idyllic. There are a smattering of houses, a small police station, a small shop, and, of course, the cathedral itself. It's the kind of town, where everyone knows each other, greets each other as they go about their business of a morning. Each Sunday, nearly the whole population of the city take to the white limestone streets to congregate at the church.

This Sunday, however, they congregate outside it, around the red smears that mar the white of the paved road, and the corpse of the parish priest. Upon his dead face is an expression not of anger, or of shock, but merely of resignation. A precursory examination from the police confirms that he fell from the spire of the cathedral he loved. What they also turn up, however, is something far more worrying.

A slim stiletto blade protrudes from the frail man's chest, and a single red rose lies upon him.

The mafia are in town.

The Rules!
  • All sitewide rules apply.
  • Play to your win condition.
  • Don't quote your Role PM, or pretend to quote your role PM. Paraphrasing is fine, though.
  • Don't use hidden or small text, cryptography, or provable randomness.
  • Once you're dead, you get a single information free "Bah!" post, but after that, no posting after your death.
  • Day deadlines will be two weeks long. Night deadlines will be 72 hours long. There will be countdowns.
  • If players need to be replaced, deadlines might be extended at my discretion.
  • This is my colour. Do not use it.
  • If you need to point something out to me in-thread, preface it with @Mod or I might miss it.
  • If you need to replace out, say so in thread.
  • If you want to replace in, or line up to replace in, just pm me saying "/in to replace", or something to that effect.
  • If you don't post for 72 hours, you will be prodded; if you don't respond to a prod by posting in the thread within 24 hours, are prodded twice in a game day, or are prodded thrice overall, I will begin looking for a replacement, and you will be replaced out when I find one, unless you post in the thread before I find one.
  • If you think there's been a mod error, then tell me. You're almost certainly right.
  • Your role PM requires you to confirm that you're willing to play when the game starts. The game will start when 11 out of 13 have confirmed.
  • During day phases, each player can vote to lynch themself or another player, or to no-lynch. You can change or retract your vote as often as you like, but can only have one vote out at a time. Votes will be reset at the start of each day.
  • To vote, either use <vote> tags or <b> tags. If you are going to use bold tags, then please put your vote on the starts of lines, or I'll probably miss them.
  • A lynch will occur if a majority of players are voting for the same person at the same time. This ends the day.
  • Day will also end, but without a lynch, at the deadline, or if half or more of the players are voting for No Lynch.
  • During the night phase, this thread will be locked, and players who can take actions overnight can take them by PMing me with the action they want to take. (Anti-town players who have a QuickTopic to communicate in can alternatively take night actions by posting them in bold in their QuickTopic.)
  • Night phases end at the deadline, and not before.

    This game will be Normal, and will follow the rules posted there. Vannilla town Role PMs look like this:
    Hello, X, and welcome to Mini Normal #1354: Vedere le Viste!
    You are a town Citizen. You have no special abilities. You win if all threats to the town are eliminated and at least one town-aligned player is alive. Confirm by replying to this PM with your role name.

    Game thread is here

Having put the priest to rest, everyone in the town comes together. Most of the people who work at the vineyards live relatively far away, and come in to work on weekdays- the priest dying on a Saturday night means that it must have been a resident of the centre of the town. And that means that there are only 13 suspects to choose from.

Suspicious looks go around from one man to the next. Looks turn to discussion. Which turns, in turn, to shouting.

scum for sure, i like being evil and i prefer being the informed minority, of course that doesn't mean i don't try as town .

2 games in the newbie forum.

@Bub: How is my arbitrary vote -any- different from any other early game vote? I see you do not have an issue with Thomith's vote when quite honestly your reasoning could as easily be applied to his vote.

@TheWorst: Thoughts on Bub's vote?

First game back in ages. Maybe I won't policy-RVS the RQSer and actually cooperate for once.

---
1. I prefer scum 'cause my Town scumhunting is absolutely terribad.
2. Many. My yGDB has the details.
3. GMT-4. Will look at least once a day, I'll post at most every 48 hours. I'm hoping most will be able to as well; 'cause lurking really makes the game impossible to read.
---

Vote: Thomith for not understanding the principle of subsets as it relates to beverages. In other words, we would notate this as "coke ⊂ soda", or more to the point, "coke ⇒ soda".

Town: 10-21 | Mafia: 3-4 | Other: 0-1

I view this as an over-reaction to what is clearly an RVS vote. Also, the deferral to another opinion is...strange.

In post 12, Konowa wrote:unvote;

Why change your non-wagon RVS vote to another non-wagon RVS vote? It makes no sense.

confirm vote: Konowa

It seems like he's over-reacting to my faux-serious RVS vote. He even defers to another opinion to make sure he's okay. I don't like it.

1- what allignment do you prefer playing as, town or scum?
Town. Playing as mafia is too restricting.

2- how many games have you played before this one?
Like 7 or 8 offsite, on mafiascum this will be my 2nd.


3- what is your timezone and how many times a day can we expect you to be posting?
GMT -5/EDT. Probably won't be posting much on Wednesdays or Thursdays- I volunteer at the local SCPA and take brazilian jiu-jitsu classes on those says.

vote scumhunter because pujols is poopy

Calling my vote BS and stating it reeks of dodging responsibility is hardly a clear RVS vote. Saying as much is disingenuous. I'm not deferring to someone else's opinion, I wanted his [TheWorst] opinion on your vote.

Also, my vote on Thomith is not a "non-wagon RVS vote". It is a real vote. I did not like the way he responded to yabba's vote. Makes me twitch. This early on I will vote on twitches.

Voting without stating my reason at the time is perfectly acceptable, in my opinion. As it makes people take stances.

1- what allignment do you prefer playing as, town or scum?
Usually town, I like pwning scum. I find scum a lot more difficult to play (and I'm generally bad at it), although my most enjoyable forum game so far has been pwning as scum.

2- how many games have you played before this one?
~20 on here. Quite a few on epic mafia, and a few forum games elsewhere.

3- what is your timezone and how many times a day can we expect you to be posting?
I live in 'Murrica. I'll post when I feel like it, usually enough not to be prodded.

Asking people to take a stance on page one without any explanation is like asking somebody to choose between door #1 and door #2.
