All seems peaceful in the village of Stockport. Everyday life is running its course and it appears as if everybody in this village gets along really well. Things couldn't be further from the truth though, as the people in this town all have secrets and reasons to hate each other. It's only a matter of time before something happens...

Spoiler: Episode 1 preview
The town mayor, Gabriel Jones, has received a letter in the mail. Gabriel opens the letter and is shocked to read its contents. "Your days of using women are over. Death awaits you." Gabriel is stunned. Who would ever want him dead? He went through a number of scenario's in his head. There were several women who
he had mistreated, but would they go as far as to send him a death threat? And would they actually be capable of killing him for it? Gabriel got scared. After thinking things through, he decided to inform the entire village about it. He typed out the following letter:

Dear people of Stockport,

I have always served this village to the best of my abilities. However, on a personal level I have not always made the best decisions.
I regret not being a better person but now I fear for my life. Tonight, a death threat was sent to me. I don't know who would threaten to kill me, but I take this very seriously.
Therefore, I have decided to inform every single one of you by sending you in order to catch the people responsible for this. Please, try and figure this out so our village can be safe again.
By the time you read this, I will no longer be at my house, so don't try to find me. I will return as soon as the people responsible have been caught.

Yours sincerely,


Gabriel Jones
Stockport Mayor


After typing it out, Gabriel starts packing some clothes and leaves his house in a hurry. He carefully roams the streets of Stockport, looking for a safe place to hide.
A bell rings. A familiar face stands up. "Who would be at my door so late?" As quickly as possible, they move towards the front door and open it.
"Are you alone?" Gabriel Jones looks desperately at the person opening the door. "Yeah, I am." Gabriel looks relieved. "Quickly, I have something to tell you..."




Welcome to Stockport: A Mafia Story: Episode 1. The village of Stockport and all of its inhabitants are fictional. We have already met the village mayor, Gabriel Jones. The rest of the current Stockport villagers can be found here. Whatever happens to Gabriel Jones and the rest of the villagers depends on you!
That's right. Together we will start a fictional series of games, where the actions and the life of the Stockport villagers is in the hands of the mafia players who sign up for the games. The game works exactly as any other mafia game, with a few exceptions:
- Every villager who is a part of the game has 2 abilities: a positive ability which will help their faction win the game, but also a negative ability which is something you'll have to overcome in order to win the game for your faction.
- Every villager also has a secret second win condition. It's prohibited to discuss your secondary win condition at all. You can only win the game by completing your second win condition, while also
having your faction win the game. So do whatever it takes to achieve this! If you mention your 2nd win condition in any way you will automatically lose the game, or even be modkilled. Play to your win conditions as much as you can! Don't put your faction in a worse position just because you want to achieve your second win condition. Also, don't put your faction in a better position by throwing your secondary win condition. Both of these actions will result in you losing the game.
- I'm sure you've heard the sentence "Life isn't fair" a bunch of times before. Well that's exactly what's going on in these games too. Balance isn't guaranteed. Bastard roles may or may not be in the game. Some games will be hard for the town to win, others will be hard for the mafia to win. Like I said, life isn't fair. Deal with it.
- Fakeclaims will be provided when needed. Not all villagers will play a part in each episode in order to achieve this. This happens to make sure the game cannot be broken by flavor
- People are still removed from the game in a similar fashion as other mafia games: players can get lynched and nightkilled. However, these terms don't mean your character will die, necessarily. What really happens when your character is lynched, nightkilled or survives the game, has been determined before the start of the game
- Please understand that this is in some ways a test game, in order to see if the storyline building works out as well as I hope it will. The secondary win conditions have been added in order to add an extra dimension to the game. I hope they'll add more fun to the game, but if they're a hinderance, they'll be removed for future games.
- I will try and provide flavor as much as possible, but because the identity of the players is a secret, it will probably be limited to flips mostly. I'll figure it out as the game progresses.
- If the first game proves to be a success, there will be more(and possibly bigger) episodes.



Episode 1 is going to be a 9 player game, mod-confirmed to be 7 town vs 2 mafia. Please read the rules and mechanics in the OP, as some of them are different from a standard mafia game. I'm considering this game to be mostly a test game to see how far I can take everything. I'm hoping this game will be exciting and fun and I'm almost confident the mechanics don't ruin the actual game(lol?).
No hydras allowed for this game, it's complicated enough as it is.
