AMURIKA MAFIA

Image

Brought to you by UberNinja and Nachomamma8.


Cue the mood music.

Thank you so much for coming here, all of you.

Since this mighty nation’s founding, there have been many challenges to its freedom. Wars, both direct and indirect, have been waged against us, but every time, we have risen above the obstacles enemies have placed to thwart our path, and every time, we have became stronger as a result. This war is a special one. Never before have a group of citizens been asked to complete such a monumental task with stakes so high and rewards so low. If you fail here today, many innocent civilians will die. If you succeed, you will earn no medals and no recognition; the only thing that pushes you on at this point is the love of your country and the love for obnoxious amounts of cash.

Your duty has nothing to do with your background. It has nothing to do with who you are in the public eye. We have gathered the best and the brightest here today, and it is up to each and every one of you to fulfill your god-given duty to save America. Identify the traitors amongst yourselves and deliver unto them the ultimate punishment. Do not allow your kin to be distracted with your behavior; make it clear that you are a true American, and do not ignore signs of patriotism when you see it. This will be crucial to an American victory.

During your mission, you will feel weak. You will feel powerless, as if there is no way that you can possibly find them amongst yourselves, for you barely know those who fight beside you. But remember those you’ve left behind as well, the people you are protecting. Remember the firefighter who ran fearlessly into a burning building and carried body after body out. Remember the smiling child on his mother’s lap, whose curious eyes hold the future of a nation that will not survive if you fail. Remember the young adult, who has just discovered what he is going to contribute to society and pursues it with youthful vigor. Remember the soldier, who suppressed his fear of death to give back to his country. Remember them all and show them the American Dream is not dead.

The spirit that built this country up from dust is alive, and it will aid you as you crush the enemies that threaten our way of life. Years from now, they will write books on the rise of America, and it will come back to this moment. Your sacrifices will not be forgotten. Your names will be in the history books, children will reenact these next moments on the playgrounds, and your descendents will pray to you for guidance in the future. When you are finished, America will thank you. But for now, I can only give you the gratitude of one mere man.

Thank you.

You are Richard Nixon (Tricky Dick), Tricky Politician!

"Don’t get the impression that you arouse my anger. You see, one can only be angry with those he respects."

Boy, you tricky. Everything that you’ve done from that Checkers speech to the Watergate scandal has been tricky, tricky, tricky. That’s why I’m not putting you in this game, you know. You first heard about the conspiracy when you were a small boy with big dreams, and so you launched your own conspiracy to counter the bad people conspiracy, which would get you impeached from office, turn your own people against you, and make you seem like less of a threat to all of those countless, countless foreigners. Since your impeachment, you’ve had wires out on those dirty dirty possible commies that will help you monitor your movement and see if their true heart belongs towards AMERICA. You’ve made a badass fucking robot suit that has been supplied with America money to launch a nuclear strike if needed, and, as a final resort, you have a SECRET weapon that you may engage upon your lynch. You have no idea what it does, though, so keep that shit as a final resort.

Wiretapping: You have taps on Faraday, Nexus, and callforjudgment. If they so much as move an inch, you will have one of your loyal aids give a report back to you ASAP.

Loyal Aids: The first kill attempt on you will fail. You assume it has something to do with your amazing powers of resilience, but you don’t know why and don’t really care.

Robot Suit: Once during the game, you may put on your ROBOT SUIT and challenge a combatant to a 1 on 1 duel. You will win this duel regardless of which way anyone votes because you’re in a MOTHERFUCKING ROBOT SUIT.

Last Resort: May be activated at any time, but you don’t know what it does. You can also activate it during twilight, so maybe you should try that?

You win when AMERICA is safe from all of those that wish to harm her.
Please confirm with your rolename by PM.

You are an Eagle (Bald-Headed SYMBOL OF AMERICA), Loyal American Citizen!

"Caaaaw!"

In 1789, a magical thing happened. You were chosen to be the national bird for the United States of America. You are a symbol of bravery, of courage, of sheer power. Not many things could be more American than that, especially since you rip fish right the fuck out of the sea no matter how much fun despite how much fun they seem to be having. You’ve killed plenty of things in your lifetime, even motherfucking RAPTORS and horned owls and shit, but that’s not what you’re about this day. Your beloved adopted country is in trouble, and you are going to show them the power of the Bald-Headed eagle that is not really bald by ripping the throats of everything that isn’t American. Or else, you would if you weren’t just a bird... you can vote and stuff to help people, but that’s about it.

Bird-brained: You have no active abilities. You might have expected better treatment since you’re the symbol of America and all that good stuff, but I’m taking one from Benjamin Franklin’s book and giving this victory to the turkey. Or something like that.

You win when AMERICA is safe from all of those that wish to harm her.
Please confirm with your rolename by PM.

Lovely, Lovely Rules: (stolen from quadz)

General:
1) This ruleset is not perfect, and will occasionally require adjustment. This adjustment will wait until after the game if at all possible, but if some in-game patching is required, it will only be done with the blessing of several mods more experienced than I.
2) Until this game is declared over and a faction is won, it cannot be discussed outside of this thread ever. Sole exception is quicktopic links provided to you by me for specific discussion with other players in the game.
3) Do not quote private mod communications in the game thread. Paraphrasing is allowed, but don't toe the line.
4) Modkills result in an automatic loss and you losing your standing in my good books; the greatest way to avoid them is asking me before doing something that you are unsure about.
5) My colors are red, green, and blue. Whenever I comment on a player's posts, I will sign my name at the bottom. Do not impersonate me by using my colors or taking my format.

Voting/Lynching:
1) Vote with the vote tag or in bold like so: Vote: Nachomamma8. Nicknames are acceptable as long as I know who you are talking about.
2) If something looks like it was intended to be a vote, it counts. Broken bold tags will not stop a scum quickhammer.
3) Lynches occur when a majority of votes are piled on one player. Once Majority is reached, twilight phase occurs and further voting/unvoting will not count. All living players may talk during the phase.
4) A single 'bah' post containing no game-relevant information is allowed after death.
5) No majority at deadline means no lynch occurs.

Player Activity:
1) Day phases will be 21 days; Night will be 3 days.
2) Extensions are granted in special circumstances.
3) Prods will be given if a player has not posted in 72 hours OR whenever they are requested.
4) A player must respond to a prod within 36 hours, but if you come back before I find a replacement, you may still stay.

Don’t Be Stupid:
1) Don’t use hidden or encrypted text. You may use small text, unless it is hiding game-related or important information.
2) Play to your win condition.
3) Don't make me step in to solve petty disputes. Killing scum should be a fun group activity for everyone involved.
4) Have fun! It's called a game for a reason; don't let it become a point of stress and frustration and anger in your life.

Fun fact: You are playing a Mafia game! Mafia is a game where each person is given the role of a murdering mafia or an innocent townsperson, along with a game moderator. The site you are playing on is called www.mafiascum.net, and will most likely cause your male friends to laugh at your choice in porn, and female friends to be silently disgusted with you.

Votecount 1.1:

Not Voting (13): goodmorning, CryoNudist, bulbazak, Doctor Black, PeregrineV, ArcAngel9, Hiraki, SaintKerrigan, Gorgon, chamber2, DansAdvent, joelsdaman1, Om

With 13 alive, it takes 7 to lynch.

Now before we let the festivities heat up too much, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce to you all my esteemed colleague, Mr. John F. Kennedy. He's come here without protection to hide his identity, as the rest you can see, and you can take it from me that this is none other than our 35th president, perfectly well and in the flesh! Let him lead you onto victory, my loyal citizens!

chamber2 (John F. Kennedy) is mod confirmed to be aligned with the town.

You mean the innocent child thing? Yeah, if I hadn't thought it worth pointing out I probably wouldn't have done so. It might not be a groundbreaking revelation but at least it was something to comment on at a very early stage in the game; something that might provoke some sort of reaction, and it did. I don't remember ever being in a game with an innocent child either, so it's a novelty to me.

Anyway, since you seem to have voted me for it I would like to hear how that post of mine is incompatible with town.

Heck, maybe it's not even an innocent child but some other similar mechanism that someone might have some ideas about. Or whatever. I fail to see how prompting possible conversation about this is suspect.

Because there was no possible need to point that out. That truth was self-evident. It's sort of like when a PR is NK, and the first post is "Well, that sucks.". The post was not needed, and therefore is unlikely to have come from town. It's the type of post that scum would make to appear town, not to mention the fact that it serves no purpose and doesn't do much to stimulate discussion.

All that being said, at least now we have some actual discussion going on and can move out of RVS. I'd like to get some others' thoughts on this matter, because maybe I'm off base here.

@CryoNudist: It's not an RVS vote, but I also don't necessarily think that Gorgon is scum. I just found his vote extremely odd, and I had a hard time reconciling that with a town mindset. Voting for Gorgon for this reason puts pressure on him, gives me information, stimulates discussion, and most importantly, gets me out of RVS. The sooner we start scum hunting, the sooner I can get some actual reads to work with.

It just doesn't add up.

-He Voted Gorgon b/c his Vote was... odd? We call bs. p9 is no more suspicious than p12.
-We've played in many many games around here and we still had to look up "Innocent Child". We don't think it's even remotely "self-evident".
-Pressure Votes carry 0 merit when you immediately say "I don't think he's Scum" and cave at the 1st sign of resistance calling it a page1 pressure Vote.

I think it's pretty clear from the context that he meant to say post, not vote. That is, he confirms that he was talking about the innocent child comment. So it's a simple slipup. I was a little confused about this at first but I think there's no way he could really have been talking about my vote.

I agree with this; I think that announcement is worth discussing which is, again, why I brought it up.

Well to be fair, he didn't say he didn't think I was scum, he said he doesn't necessarily think I'm scum, but it's still kind of weird to bring this up when you're putting pressure. When you're doing that I think it's quite okay and even necessary to be pretty emphatic, otherwise the pressure is, yeah, lessened.

All this said, I'm not sure Bulb deserves my vote right now. Although his stated eagerness to get out of RVS could be a case of a manufactured "Look at me I'm a scumhunter!", and his haste to explain that he doesn't necessarily think I'm scum is a bit apologetic, something about his explanation of his motives reads genuine to me. Maybe it plays a part that I voted for a player early in my last game for the "Stated eagerness to scumhunt"-scumtell and he turned out to be town, and very good town at that.
