    Quote from Ged
    Watching mafia games is weird but enjoyable.


    I've come to like it more than I enjoy playing it sometimes. There's really nothing I enjoy more than modding games, to be honest.

    The tales of Amistaria are done, but I have plenty of ideas rolling around in my head. Smile

    /basically a giant barn of ZDS

    But I will address the first point in a little more detail:

    In general, I don't think enough thought is put into why people were NKed here on MTGS, to be honest. From a personal anecdotal standpoint see Survival Horror and Xyre's Redux (invitational) - I was killed N1 in both games for being suspicious of scum (AI and Cyan, respectively).

    As ZDS said though, the scum always have reason for killing who they do, and sometimes it's in search of a power role, or even WIFOM. It's been my experience that in the earlier stages of the game, they're trying to eliminate people who pose the largest threat to them in the thread. Later on, they're trying to avoid PoE (eliminating power roles, or those they suspect are) and sowing confusion (WIFOM).

    Quote from DRey
    I think to discern new players real scumtells from bogus ones is an art. I know ZDS is pretty spot on those things but there are some tells that are quite universal given new players.

    I remember that after trying to chain lynches on two players in my first game(final fantasy) I was slammed into the ground pretty quickly and correctly by DYH, geez, DYH was quite a good townie in that game, he caught me so easily. Wink


    LOL!

    I'm going to take everyone in the game who is playing in 0-1 games with the exception of PopeRonPaul (sorry, you're a gimmick and I don't know of whom, so I can't be sure you're not playing games under another name).

    That gives and initial base of:

    1. Iso (1)
    2. EtR (1)
    3. Fadeblue (1)
    4. TMCT (1)
    5. Zionite (1)
    6. Guardman (1)
    7. AsianInvasion (1)
    8. Xyre (1)
    9. Cyan (1)
    10. Seppel (1)
    11. Condoms (0)
    12. Axelrod (0)

    I'll random in the remaining four spots from the rest:

    1. Kosakosa (2)
    2. Arianrhod (2)
    3. Megiddo (2)
    4. Hansanator (2)
    5. PopeRonPaul (0)
    6. Cythare (2)
    7. Archmage Eternal (2)

    Quote from Megiddo
    Should I read up on the past games? Or is prior knowledge not necessary?


    Not necessary; might help you enjoy the story, though. (And perhaps inside jokes that are bound to occur - such as vezokpiraka claiming scum in the last game.)

    If you're not familiar with the burnout mechanic, it will be explained in the rules.

    @Iso: Well, the problem with #2 is that I was able to rightfully deduce that you did just that - sticking a scum in Las Plagas as a balance. I mean, AI was scummy enough on his own that I thought he should've been the D1 lynch, anyway ( <3 AI ), but that kinda sealed the deal for me.

    Giving Arianrhod his choice to recruit before the game, I think, gives it more of the cult feel you were looking for (to be spun as a neutral).

    I'm having terrible flashbacks to Points Mafia. I thought the lesson had been learned from that about multi-voting roles and endgames from our mistake there. I was apparently mistaken.

    Updated again.

    There will only be one instance of this game running. Signups will end whenever DRey is ready (I would assume soon), and then the randomization process can begin.

    Lastly, nonsense, I am Light Yagami.
    I have the Death Note.
    I will kill you.

    Quote from RafaelK »
    Persona Mafia Role
    Character Name: Light Yagami
    Persona: Virtue (Justice Arcana)
    New place, same corruption. But you can do something about it.
    Your “persona” seems of little use to you. You ARE Justice. But you still have the Death Note, and although some of the rules seem to have... changed, the first rule still reads thus:

    The human whose name is written in this note shall die.

    But you know also to be cautious, and not to flash the Note constantly where people might see... Misa Amane is here, you caught a quick glimpse before the shrouds came down, and if she is here than so may be others. Near? Mello? *L*?

    Ability: Death Note. Once per day and once per night, you may attempt to kill someone by PMing me a character name AND persona name. If the character and persona name are both correct for one player at the time you write the note, it counts as a kill attempt on them (subject to any protections etc they may have).
    OOC: You may also write your own flavour for the death scene within reason and include it in the PM to me. Having scum confess their scum buddies before dying is not within reason.
    Win Condition: The scum must die.

    Updated.

    I did not include KCC in the player list based on her feedback in the thread.

    Please let me know if I missed something.
