MAFIA 77: RETURN TO THE WEST [GAME THREAD] - [HIDDEN]

#1 Post by Jamiet99uk » Sun Jan 15, 2023 5:42 pm

Rules

Standard rules apply.

Scheduling

All deadlines are at 11pm GMT, which is 6pm EST.

Hammering (voting ##END to end the day early) is permitted, but everyone must cease posting once they realize a hammer has occurred, and must remain quiet until the GMs resolve the phase. See the rules doc for more info on how a Hammer is triggered.

Setup

This is a SEMI-OPEN setup. There are more possible roles provided for than will actually be in play. No Power Role will be in play more than once. The distribution of Power Roles has been RANDOMLY determined for maximum entertainment value.

Mafia will have a Night Chat as standard. The Mafia team members will not be able to talk in the Night Chat before the game starts (or during Day phases), but they will be able to view it, in order to see who their team-mates are.

Game will start with Day One as is the usual custom here on webDip.

Possible Roles:

11 Town:

8 Vanilla Town
0-1 Tracker
0-1 Watcher
0-1 Doctor
0-1 Gambler (three attempts)
0-1 Gunsmith (two guns)
0-1 Civil War Veteran (one blast)

3 Mafia:

0-1 Infiltrator (Ninja)
0-1 Hooker
0-1 Strongman (one-shot)
0-1 Tough Guy (one-save)
0-1 Stagecoach Driver (two uses)
0-1 Quack Doctor

TOWN ROLE PMs

VANILLA TOWNSPERSON
You are a VANILLA TOWNSPERSON. Each day you must vote for a suspect. You win when all of the Mafia have been eliminated, or nothing can stop this from happening.

TRACKER
You are the TRACKER. Each day you must vote for a suspect. Each night, you may visit a player by PM-ing both GMs with the order ##TRACK <NAME>. Your target will not be aware of your visit. At the end of the night, you will learn who that player visited (if anyone). You win when all of the Mafia have been eliminated, or nothing can stop this from happening.

WATCHER
You are the WATCHER. Each day you must vote for a suspect. Each night, you may visit a player by PM-ing both GMs with the order ##WATCH <NAME>. Your target will not be aware of your visit. At the end of the night, you will learn who that player was visited by (if anyone). You win when all of the Mafia have been eliminated, or nothing can stop this from happening.

DOCTOR
You are the DOCTOR. Each day you must vote for a suspect. Each night, you may visit a player by PM-ing both GMs with the order ##SAVE <NAME>. At the end of the night, if they have been targeted by the mafia nightkill, or if they are shot during the night, you will save their life. You will know if you successfully performed a save. Your target will also learn of your visit if they are saved (but not your identity). You may save yourself, but you may not visit the same player on consecutive nights. You win when all of the Mafia have been eliminated, or nothing can stop this from happening.

GAMBLER
You are the GAMBLER! Each day you must vote for a suspect. You start the game with THREE gambling chips. At night, you may wager one chip to place a bet on who will be voted out the next day. If you win your bet, you win one item from the list below (determined at random). Each item is a one-use item and may only be won a single time. If you run out of chips, you may spend an un-used item to place a bet instead. You'll receive your item at the start of the night phase. You win when all of the Mafia have been eliminated, or nothing can stop this from happening.

GAMBLER'S ITEMS
- Shotgun (one shot kill, day or night)
- First aid kit (one use doctor save, usable at your choice, but will be used up even if target is not attacked)
- Whisky (one shot roleblock, usable at your choice, used up even if target has no action to block)
- Railroad ticket (one-use commute, usable at your choice, immune to all actions whilst commuting, cannot gamble on the night you commute)
- Bulletproof vest (vest that protects against one gunshot or NK, donned immediately on receipt, active only for that one night)
(All items are night-use)

GUNSMITH
You are the GUNSMITH. Each day you must vote for a suspect. You start the game with TWO guns. On any night, for up to two total nights, you may visit another player by PM-ing both GMs with the order ##GUN <NAME>, and give them a gun. Shots fired at night adjudicate at EoN. Shots fired during the day adjudicate as soon as the GM receives (and is able to process) the order. You win when all of the Mafia have been eliminated, or nothing can stop this from happening.

CIVIL WAR VETERAN
You are the CIVIL WAR VETERAN. Each day you must vote for a suspect. Your experiences in the war have left you a bit paranoid. The first time that you are visited, you start blasting - and will shoot everyone that visits you that phase (unless protected/saved as normal). Your bullets are then exhausted. This is a passive action and you cannot turn it off voluntarily. You win when all of the Mafia have been eliminated, or nothing can stop this from happening.

MAFIA ROLE PMs

INFILTRATOR
You are the INFILTRATOR. Each day you must vote for a suspect. You may perform night actions without being seen by a Tracker or Watcher (in this game this could include carrying out the NK, or using a gun). At night you can talk to the other Mafia in the Mafia Chat, where your team-mates' identities and roles will be revealed. You win when all of the Town have been eliminated, or nothing can stop this from happening.

STAGECOACH DRIVER
You are the DRIVER. Each day you must vote for a suspect. TWO times per game, at night, you may visit two living players by PM-ing both GMs with the order ##DRIVE <NAME> and <NAME>. Any person who attempts to visit one of those people will visit the other chosen person instead. At night you can talk to the other Mafia in the Mafia Chat, where your team-mates' identities and roles will be revealed. You win when all of the Town have been eliminated, or nothing can stop this from happening.

HOOKER
You are the HOOKER. Each day you must vote for a suspect. Each night, you may visit another player by PM-ing both GMs with the order ##ROLEBLOCK <NAME>. If that player attempts any night actions, they will fail. They will learn that they were roleblocked. At night you can talk to the other Mafia in the Mafia Chat, where your team-mates' identities and roles will be revealed. You win when all of the Town have been eliminated, or nothing can stop this from happening.

STRONGMAN
You are the STRONGMAN. Each day you must vote for a suspect. Once per game, at night, you may choose to strong-arm the Mafia's night kill by PM-ing both GMs with the order ##STRONGARM. When this is done, the nightkill cannot be prevented by the Doctor, a vest, whisky, or any other thing that would protect or save the target. At night you can talk to the other Mafia in the Mafia Chat, where your team-mates' identities and roles will be revealed. You win when all of the Town have been eliminated, or nothing can stop this from happening.

TOUGH GUY
You are the TOUGH GUY. Each day you must vote for a suspect. You are immune from one gunshot. The first gunshot that targets you will fail automatically. At night you can talk to the other Mafia in the Mafia Chat, where your team-mates' identities and roles will be revealed. You win when all of the Town have been eliminated, or nothing can stop this from happening.

QUACK DOCTOR
You are the QUACK DOCTOR. Each day you must vote for a suspect. TWICE per game, at night, you may visit another player by PM-ing both GMs with the order ##VISIT <NAME>. They will receive a message telling them they were saved by the Doctor. At night you can talk to the other Mafia in the Mafia Chat, where your team-mates' identities and roles will be revealed. You win when all of the Town have been eliminated, or nothing can stop this from happening.

GM NOTE

Role PMs are being sent out. Please check your webDip messages to find out your role.

President Eden will be helping me to set up a Discord server for this game.

There will also be the Peterbot, Chaqa is helping me to set this up. If you are new here, the "Peterbot" is a web based app which automatically counts votes and provides a history of the game. It is a very useful tool:

GM NOTE

In due course, before the game commences, Mafia team members (only) will receive an invite to a Discord server wherein lies the Mafia Night Chat.

Until N1, they may not post in that Night Chat, but they may view it in Discord, once they have been invited, in order to learn who their team-mates are.

In this game, living Town players will not be invited to the Discord server. Once players have died they may be admitted to the God Thread to follow and comment on the remainder of the game.

PLEASE CONTINUE NOT POSTING - GAME IS YET TO BEGIN

PRE-GAME FLAVOUR

It is 1888, a few years since the gold rush hit the town of Zultar's Gulch. It is no longer the bustling hive of activity it had been at the peak of the prospecting frenzy. Yet some of those drawn here in 1884 have remained, establishing businesses, farms, permanent homes, and starting to forge a better life for themselves in the Idaho territory. Soon Idaho is likely to petition for formal recognition as a state. And still, rumours persist that the greatest un-tapped vein of precious metal remains un-claimed, somewhere in them thar hills nearby.

Drawn once again by those rumours, a few members of the Jessop Gang have come creeping back to Idaho. A bunch of no-good, low-down varmints, all of whom bear a strong family resemblance, they'd sell their own mother for a quick dollar. Disguised as simple prospectors, their prominent protruding jaws concealed by neckerchiefs or years of beard growth, they plan to take for themselves the riches that lie beneath these here hills. And if a few townspeople need to die in the process? Well, guess they really don't care too much 'bout that.

Can the townsfolk root out the bad guys? Or will the Jessop Gang prevail? Find out in MAFIA 77 - Return to the West!

Sheriff Browne was getting old. He felt his joints creak as he hauled himself out of his bunk as morning spilled over Zultar's Gulch. But for an old man, he was satisfied with what he'd achieved. The Gulch was a quiet town, a place for honest folks to settle down. He meant to keep it that way.

He unlocked the door of the Sheriff's Office. The room inside was gloomy compared to the sunny morning outside.

Wait a moment.

Someone was sitting at his desk.

"Sorry, Sheriff", said the shape. "Times are gonna be a' changing around here."

**A SHOT RINGS OUT**
DUDLEY BROWNE has died! He was the SHERIFF!

DAY ONE HAS STARTED
YOU MAY POST!

Hello Bunny, Damo, and anyone who signs in here after this post.

Pistol rang out, eh? Soon the church bells will be ringing, laying that old coot in the dusty dirt.

Fake question. Reminds me of this D1 wolf post in a game I observed.

Let’s play.

fake as in I was pretty sure of the answer, or fake as in I wasn't curious in the first place and inviting others in?

Having not read anything else in that link except "is this a joke vote?" I have no actual context for what you're trying to say...what are you trying to say?

I’m hopeful that this game will be more fun than the last one. The downsides of being a PR… lol, I’d like to just play a full game. Dying so early without a chance to actually make an impact when you’re supposed to be the one who pushes town to a win just blows. Only matters when the guy you stick your neck out for doesn’t blow it I suppose. Chaqa, have you learned anything about ending before literally anything valuable happens?
