You awaken to the hustle and bustle of your home town’s daily activity. Little did you know that the peaceful quiet of your normal, everyday life would come crashing down today. It seems that one of your fellow citizens has angered the Mob, and has paid for it with his life! What are you going to do? Why, you’re going to get your peaceful, little town back, that’s what…

Your job, fair citizens of the town’s Ruling Council, is to discover who among you belong to the Mafia and summarily lynch them. Two of your fellow Council members are working for the Mafia - find them before they take over the Council and the town!



Living Players (2) - Confirmed players are in bold.
holycon, Mafia Roleblocker
EGL (replaced sixth ranger), Mafia Goon

* = Inexperience Challenged (IC)
^ = Semi-Experienced (SE)

The IC(s) are here to help you learn to play the game. Their play is governed by the wiki article Being a good IC.


Dead Players (7)
Robocopter87 ^, Townie, lynched Day 1
Ant_to_the_max, Townie, killed Night 1
Faenval, Townie, lynched Day 2
Deer *, Cop, killed Night 2
CarneyBaby88, Townie, lynched Day 3
Howard, Doctor, killed in Endgame
Beefster ^ (replaced Radical Hijinx ^), Townie, killed in Endgame


holycon and EGL won a perfect game for the Mafia team!!

Game Rules:

General Gameplay and Etiquette:
  1. You may not quote private Moderator-supplied information (either real or fabricated) of any kind. Paraphrasing (for role claims, etc.) is acceptable.
  2. There is to be NO personal communication outside of the forum postings unless your role PM specifically allows it.
  3. If you have a role with a Night action your choices are due to me by the posted deadline. If I do not receive your choice via PM by the posted deadline you will forfeit your actions.
  4. Roles with Night actions will not be able to submit an action on Night 0 (i.e. during the confirmation stage).
  5. Any player with a Night action may instead submit a “No Action” PM to let the Mod know that you do not want to perform your expected action that Night phase.
  6. In order for all players to play at least one game day this game will start with a Day phase. Communication outside the thread (if your role specifically allows it) is allowed until the game begins.
  7. As a general rule you should aim for one post every 48 hours, minimum, to keep the game moving.
  8. All Newbie games have strict 3-week deadlines. Extensions are given only in extreme circumstances.
Voting, Deadlines, and Player Death:
  1. A simple majority of all living members must agree on one person for a Lynch to occur (simple majority = ½ # of living players +1, rounded down).
  2. Votes should be bolded or they may not be counted (e.g. Vote: Player).
  3. Vote revocations should be bolded or they may not be counted (e.g. Unvote: Player or Unvote). Unvotes are not necessary before changing votes.
  4. You may Vote: No Lynch - a simple majority of these vote types are required to send the game to Night phase without a Lynch.
  5. Votes/Unvotes that reasonably follow the guidelines specified above, and are unambiguous with respect to player nicknames/abbreviations, will count. Attempting to fake a vote will result in a Modkill.
  6. In the case of a tie at deadline, the person who had the most votes before the tie will be lynched. If no one has a simple majority of votes at deadline a No Lynch will occur.
  7. Once a player has reached a simple majority of votes no further unvoting will change their fate.
  8. Once a player is lynched the game enters twilight until I post a death scene; all players may continue to post.
  9. Once you are killed (either via lynch or night kill) you may no longer post except for a brief “Bah!”-type post.
Miscellaneous/Mechanics:
  1. Red or Purple text is reserved for the Mod. No invisible/small/encrypted text is allowed (if I can't read it, don't post it).
  2. Votecounts will be posted once per page or once per day, whichever is less.
  3. If you have an issue/problem with the game, please PM the Mod privately. Do not post issues/complaints in the game thread.
  4. The Mod may make mistakes - please point out any mistakes gently. Mistakes will be corrected where possible, but sometimes mistakes are made that cannot be reversed. These will stand as final to be commiserated over after the game.
  5. Please bold all requests to the Mod so that they don’t get missed.
  6. Prods of missing players will be issued upon request or on the 4th day of no activity. A player who has been prodded 3 times is subject to possible replacement without further notice.
  7. Rules violations will be dealt with according to their severity, up to and including a Modkill. Modkills may be accompanied by a change to day/night.
  8. Any situation not explicitly covered above is subject to Mod discretion and will be handled as the Mod sees fit on a case-by-case basis.
  9. If you anticipate being unavailable for more than a 48-hour period please post a notice to that effect in the thread. Treat this game as a commitment. Be considerate – don’t leave us hanging.
The Golden Rule:

Please remember that this is a game and your main objective is to have fun! Be considerate of each other, don’t get personal, and enjoy the game. Playing to win does not preclude being considerate of each other!

There is a ZERO tolerance policy for personal attacks in this game. I will remove you from the game (possibly without warning) if you get too personal.

The F11 setup is the current game format used in Newbie games. To prevent the development of game-breaking strategies, these Newbie Games are Semi-Open, wherein the actual game setup is randomly chosen from one of four possible setups as detailed below:

  • 1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Roleblocker, 1 Sane Cop, 1 Sane Doctor, 5 Townies
  • 1 Mafia Goon, 1 Mafia Roleblocker, 7 Townies
  • 2 Mafia Goons, 1 Sane Cop, 6 Townies
  • 2 Mafia Goons, 1 Sane Doctor, 6 Townies
If either of the first two setups are in play, and the situation occurs where the Goon is lynched first, the Roleblocker will still be able to submit both night kills and roleblocks (roleblocking is a function of the Roleblocker; night kills are a function of the scum team as a whole).


These are the Role PMs that have potentially been sent to the players:

Mafia-Aligned players:

Mod wrote:Mafia

name (a Mafia Goon) and name (who is also a Mafia Goon) are part of the local Mafia crime family. Since your plot to quietly overtake the town has failed, you will attempt take it by force by eliminating the others until you outnumber the populace.
  • During the day, try to blend in with the normal Townies, and attempt to get someone lynched.
  • During the NIGHT cycle ONLY, you may talk with your fellow Mafia (via this QuickTopic) and choose another player in the town to kill that night. One of you must send me a PM with your choice of who to kill.
  • You may communicate privately via QuickTopic with your fellow Mafia up until the game thread is opened (this is called Night 0). Once the game begins, all outside communication must cease until the night cycle.
  • You win when the number of Mafia equals or exceeds the number of remaining Town players, whether you survive to the end or not.

  • During the NIGHT cycle ONLY, you may talk with your fellow Mafia (via this QuickTopic) and choose another player in the town to kill that night. One of you must send me a PM with your choice of who to kill.
  • The Mafia Roleblocker has the ability to distract any player throughout the night, effectively negating their night ability, if they have one.
  • The Mafia should send the moderator a PM with your choice of player that you want to block (usually along with the kill). If they have a Night action, it will have no effect. You will not be informed as to whether the roleblock worked or not.
  • The Mafia may communicate privately via QuickTopic up until the game thread is opened (this is called Night 0). Once the game begins, all outside communication must cease until the night cycle.
  • You win when the number of Mafia equals or exceeds the number of remaining Town players, whether you survive to the end or not.


Town-Aligned players:

Mod wrote:Townie:

You are a normal townsperson, trying to make a living and survive this insanity.
  • You have no abilities at Night other than getting a good night's rest.
  • Although you do not have any special abilities, your voice and vote are powerful weapons in their own right. Use them to your best advantage!
  • At no time may you privately communicate with any other player.
  • You win when all the Mafia players are gone, whether you survive to the end or not.


Mod wrote:Cop:

You are the local law enforcement, and can tell the good guys from the bad.
  • Each NIGHT, you may send the moderator a PM with your choice of player that you want to investigate.
  • The Moderator will inform you as to that person’s guilt or innocence.
  • At no time may you privately communicate with any other player.
  • In a Newbie game, you will always get a correct result (no sanity issues).
  • You win when all the Mafia players are gone, whether you survive to the end or not.


Mod wrote:Doctor:

You are the local physician, and can protect people from harm.
  • Each NIGHT, you may send the moderator a PM with your choice of player that you want to protect.
  • If someone attempts to kill that player during the Night, they will be spared.
  • You may not protect yourself.
  • At no time may you privately communicate with any other player.
  • In a Newbie game, your protection target will always live through the night (no quacks).
  • You win when all the Mafia players are gone, whether you survive to the end or not.

Well.....I was going to say the generic "Hi, I am excited to play my first game on here" and what not but I guess I will just skip that >_>

Do you have something to hide Radical Hijinx? A pretty early accusation for something extremely petty (and for something that doesn't even matter)...

Trying to quickly cover up any skeletons in your closet?

I want to ask a few questions though.

2.Native Language?
3.Coke or Pepsi?
4.Are you excited to play?
5.Are you nervous?
6. How many games have you played?
7. And last but not least, what is your playstyle? If you haven't played before, What would you do in a panicky situation?

I'll answer after everyone else does.

unvote-----since you and I had the same ideas. ;-)


Robo, you want to know way to much.....I think I like you. Prying into personal lives is always fun. So, here you go!


1.Where you from? Ohio

2.Native Language? English

3.Coke or Pepsi? Coke from a bottle, pepsi from a can

4.Are you excited to play? Um, duh?

5.Are you nervous? Why would I be? Do you know something I dont?

6. How many games have you played? I played a long time ago, but
forgot that SN....so maybe a good 20

7. And last but not least, what is your playstyle? If you haven't played before, What would you do in a panicky situation? I talk a lot....IDK if you count that as a style.

1.Where you from? Toronto

2.Native Language? English

3.Coke or Pepsi? Coke

4.Are you excited to play? Very

5.Are you nervous? Perhaps a little, but the excitement overshadows it.

6. How many games have you played? 0, but I watched a few other games to get a hang of it.

7. And last but not least, what is your playstyle? If you haven't played before, What would you do in a panicky situation? I don't think I will answer this one. It will come to haunt me in the future I am sure haha.

====================

Also, Robo I think you are scum. Specifically due to the last question you asked. You come off as trying to appear pro-town and the last question appears to be like a towny question, however I think you are asking a question like that to cover yourself up because you are scum. Explain yourself.

1. Arizona
2. English
3. Pepsi
4. Very much so
5. Not really
6. On here, zero. But I play a lot of Warcraft 3 and someone made a custom map of this game so this is how I know about the game.
7. I try to stay back, and only act when I am sure I know what I am doing.

and everything is cool, not throwing a hissy fit :D

Ohai guys.

Robocopter87: Yeah, my name is unpronounceable. Apparently it has a Finnish swear word in it too, which is awesomely unintentional. Err, unintentionally awesome.

Now, to business:

!vote sixth ranger

He was last to confirm. This is obviously reluctant scum.


Finally, to answer Robo's questions...

1. USA
2. American (aka, English)
3. Neither, I drink motor oil because I am a robot
4. I'm excited that the game has deadlines, yes.
5. Not at all.
6. A few. Well, one, really. On this forum.
7. My playstyle is 100% unpredictable

I specifaccly said I'd answer later. This includes why I asked the questions, just answer them without the paranoia. I'm not going to be all like, "DUDE THIS MEANS UR SCUM!" just answer them. Like a normal person.

I would like to hear everyone elses theory on what set up we have and why.

First Setup: Plausible.
Second Setup: Think they would add less vanilla roles so people will learn more, thus thinking it is not this set up.
Third Setup: Plausible.
Fourth Setup: Plausible.

Robo: I can appreciate the asking of questions to determine who's truly motivated and who's not (and thus who is more likely to be scum), but pressing people on how excited they are for the game strikes me as fishing for cop/doc reactions -- since those would be the most excited players. Thus, I decline to elaborate further on Q4.

Howard: All setups are equally likely. It is like flipping a four-sided coin.

No, Setup speculation in a Newbie game= Bad scum!
The setup is completly random anyone of those could be it.

Why are you avoiding my questions Howard? Something to hide perhaps?
Unvote, vote Howard
