    Day 5 - The Poisonous Kiss of Alcohol

    Getting rid of yet another traitor felt good. It felt seriously good, knowing that you were one person closer of ending this nightmare. You all prayed that there wouldn't be any more traitors left and everyone who went to bed would wake up in the morning. You were all getting tired of suspecting each other and seeing more and more people close to you dead, traitors or not.

    Still, it looked the luck still wasn't on your side, as only eight people found their way to the dining room in the morning. Knowing already what to expect, you all head towards the room of Viviana, Enrico's sister. To no one's surprise, you find her dead in her bed, grasping a bottle of high quality whisky in her cold, dead hands.

    "She won't be finishing that bottle", you think to yourselves as one of you pries the bottle away from her hands, and carefully smells the insides. A pungent smell fills your nose. From the looks of it, the traitors knew about her habit of drinking in the night (though, who didn't know about that habit of hers?) and had decided to take advantage of that. Poisoning someone was low, poisoning their bottle of whisky was even lower.

    vezokpiraka has been found dead! They were:

    Viviana (Town)

    You’ve seen a few things in your life. Heck, you’ve even done a few things. It was never particularly easy being part of this family, and when your brother took charge of the day to day operations, you weren’t about to let him have all the fun. But that was many years ago, and times are different. That was before seeing and doing some of the most horrible things imaginable. You don’t regret it though, it was for the family, it was for the people who you’re supposed to love, and who are supposed to love you.

    Now, more often than not, you’ve got a smile on your face, and a bottle in your hand. It’s easier to spend your time laughing far too loud at the same stories you’ve told for several years now; easier to be perpetually intoxicated than worry about life.

    Your brother is dead, and you can’t help but know that you’re next, but why remember all that when you could forget it instead. After all, you probably deserve it anyway. Nevertheless, you don’t plan to live out any time left all alone, because misery loves company after all.

    You have the following ability:

    Share a drink: Target a player, you will stumble into their room and share a few drinks and stories about your dearly departed brother.
    (They are blocked from performing actions tonight.)

    You win when all threats to the town have been dealt with.

    With yet another body in front of you all, everyone looks at the few other remaining people. If you could only root out the missing traitors, you could finally be free from this ordeal...

    It's now Day 5. With 8 alive, it’s 5 to lynch. Deadline is on April 25th.

    Night 4 - Third Time's the Charm

    The forth day feels really quiet. No one has much energy remaining and instead of arguing, most people just stay silent and stare at the others. Everyone is clearly wary of each other. It feels like it was an eternity ago when you last time spent time together as a family, happily laughing together and whatever silly things happened to you during the day.

    Still, you needed to see through this, in order to get rid of the traitors and to reclaim at least some of that happiness. You all have resolved to do no matter what it takes to survive this ordeal and kill the traitors, no matter who those are. Even if it was someone very close to you, you'd still do it. You know that much about yourselves.

    After several hours of silence, one of you finally breaks down. Gino, the third son of Enrico suddenly starts muttering to himself before loudly shouting:
    "It's no use, we'll all going to die anyways! We're going to die!"

    Moving faster than you have ever seen him move (considering his weak legs and constant need of crutches), he makes it across the room to a bookshelf and pulls out a gun. With a swift move, he places the gun on his temple and cries out loud: "I'm sorry!"

    A loud bang permeates the room and the third son of Enrico falls down on floor, dead.

    Vaimes has been lynched! They were:

    Gino (Mafia)

    You weren't born lucky. You were born as a youngest son of a mafia family, meaning that there will always be someone (in this case, your older brothers) to reap the benefits. As if that weren't enough, it was soon found out after your born that your legs were weak. Even now, you can barely stand on your own feet without any support and any physical activities involving your legs were out of question. You've been the laughingstock for your father and brothers ever since you were born.

    Still, this drive you to attempts to prove your worthiness to your father in other fields than just fighting and running. Spying, negotiating, manipulating... no avail. Your father never acknowledged you, until his untimely death. Now that he's been dealt with, it's time to pay back for all the humiliation and ridicule you've faced for your whole life. It's time to show what you can do to the rest of the family and maybe, just maybe, if they bow down on their knees and apologize, you'll grant them mercy of a quick and painless death.

    Though, you still first need to gain control of this whole mess that the death of your father has brought upon this mansion. Good for you that you were the one who built and installed the whole electronic safety system, with electronic locks, surveillance cameras and whatnot. Rest of your family laughed when you spent several days working on them. They won't laugh now.

    You have the following abilities:

    Traviare (1-shot): Target two players. If the first person takes any action tonight, you manipulate the mansion's doors to lead that person to the second target instead of their original target.

    Confondere (1-shot): Target two players. You will change the signs on the doors of those players vice versa, so that all abilities that would target one of those players tonight will target the other one instead.

    Bloccare (1-shot): Target a player. You will use the safety system to lock them into their room, preventing them from taking any actions tonight but also protecting them from all kills.

    You win when mafia has gained control of the game.

    With yet another traitor dead, you headed to your beds, praying that this ordeal would end soon. None of you would be able to hand much more of these deaths and killings anymore.

    It's now Night 4. Day 5 will start in ~24 hours.

    Day 4 - Bye Bye "Benito"

    After yet another night of anxiousness and very light sleep, people started to head down towards the parlor just like they have done on every previous day so far. As more people start coming to the room, everyone starts to feel more anxious. Soon they would find it out whether everyone made it through the night or was someone once again been killed by the traitors. After a while, you notice that out of the eleven people who went to bed last night, only ten have come back to the parlor.

    You braze yourselves as you head towards the room of the missing person. Leonardo was never really much of an early bird, but he still was sensible enough to come down and let everyone else know he was okay even if he was dead tired. You just pray in your minds that he had overslept this one time.

    Your worst fear soon turn out to be true as you open the door and see Leonardo's bed full of bullet holes and the white sheets stained with blood and in the middle of the bed Leonardo himself, unmoving. Some of you gasp for air, while some don't even want to look into the room and see another friend of yours dead in his own bed. Whoever did this wanted to be certain of Leonardo not making it alive to this morning...

    Grapefruit21 has been found dead! They were:

    Leonardo (Town)

    They call you the man of many faces, which in your opinion is not quite right. You only have one face, but the trick is to never let people who know you see you where you don't want to be seen. You've been honing this skill of yours for years and have finally managed to perfect it in your opinion. It's been several years since the last time someone caught a glimpse under your cover and even in those cases, most of the people who caught of glimpse of true you didn't live long enough to share this piece of information with others.

    Nowadays, you are spending most of your days at the Internal Information and Security Agency, working as a regular agent. This is naturally just a cover for you, since your true alliance lies with this family. You are leaking information to this family just so that they manage to avoid the all-seeing eye of the Agency and never get caught doing anything illegal. So far, no one suspects a thing in the Agency that this is all your doing.

    Still, the death of your true employer has made this situation bit tricky for you. You need to help the family resolve this mess and help smoke out the traitors, while you should already by returning to your post in the Agency. You really want to help out in getting rid of the traitors, but if you stay here too long, the chance of you getting caught goes up remarkably. And you wouldn't want to you long streak of not blowing your cover be ruined just because of this incident.

    You have no abilities besides your vote.

    You win when all threats to the town have been dealt with.

    Once again, another body served as a reminder that the traitors were still hiding among you. People were anxiously looking around them, eyeing at everyone else with a single question in mind: "Who are the traitors?"

    It's now Day 4. With 10 alive, it’s 6 to lynch. Deadline is on April 18th.

    Night 3 - Death Pays All Debts

    Third day of arguing over the inheritance and about the threat that the traitors possess towards the family was starting to wear everyone out. After one of you had been crushed under that heavy chandelier, some of you took that as a chance to not participate in the discussion and focused solely on moving the heavy crystal chandelier away from top of the crushed man.

    During the same time, the debate just grew louder and more aggressive by every passing minute. With Enrico, his wife and first and second son dead, there wasn't really anyone anymore to lead the discussion. The debate seemed to head nowhere and as it was getting closer and closer to sunset, people stopped actually caring who they would lynch next, as long as they lynched someone and that someone wasn't them.

    That's when the attention turned towards the jovial guy, who didn't seem that all interested in the inheritance or money, and was one of the people moving the chandelier. Being jovial in a situation like this was suspicious and was certainly a sign of being guilty, right?

    So, after he and the others had finished moving the chandelier, one of you silently drew the gun, pointed it at him from the behind and shot, surprising the man right before his untimely demise.

    Tubba Fett has been lynched! They were:

    Enzo Romano (Town)

    "Here's the flour you ordered, sir." Such a simple lie. A double-lie, really, a facade of stupidity improvised in the moment five years ago as a desperate attempt at self-preservation. And it had worked. A supplier needed a package delivered to the Family, but their normal courier was unavailable, so they had resorted to an outside company, where you worked. And, through no fault of your own, the package had been damaged in transit, revealing the white contents. You were no dummy. You could have gone to the Carabinieri, but the amount in the package was no mere pittance; someone would end up paying for that choice, and there was a real possibly someone would have tracked you down. You could have made the delivery with a straight face and hoped that they decided you weren't a threat...but if you had been wrong, it would have been your life.

    So you feigned simplicity. In the heat of the moment it seemed like a good idea. Deliver the package, pass yourself off as an idiot, too dumb to go to the Carabinieri, probably too dumb to even tell the Carabinieri anything if they came sniffing around later. Unfortunately--or fortunately?--it had worked a little too well. Enrico himself had been present and had taken a liking to you (truth be told, judging from how he had told one of his men to stand down, Enrico had probably saved your life, simpleton or not). Instead of delivering the package and escaping, you were given an extra large tip and offered another delivery job. Again, you were no dummy. And you were barely scraping by as a legit courier...why not see how they pay in the shade?

    Of course, there's truth behind the saying "once you're in, you're in for life". Enrico had dubbed you his fava piccolo and given you job after job, eventually entrusting you with some of his most precious deliveries. You've spent the last five years perfecting your role as the Family idiot, but just recently, you're pretty sure Enrico was starting to suspect your true intellect...although it seemed to make no difference to him. There had even been a few times you thought he had given you looks of understanding...and approval. He had started to seem almost like a father... Well, you've been fooling these people for years; maybe now your experience will serve to help you avenge his death.

    You have no abilities besides your vote.

    You win when all threats to the town have been dealt with.

    osieorb18 has been modkilled! They were:

    Ephriam Saperstein (Town)

    It all comes down to the money. Who has it? Where's it going? How's it going to be used? Most importantly, how can more be made? Your father served as the family's personal banker for years and tutored you in both the intricacies of finance and the infinitely trickier and more dangerous labyrinth of managing money for the cosca. That he died of old age is a testament to his invaluable skill, and his legacy--for better or worse--means that as long as you perform that tightrope walk with apparent similar finesse, you'll be set for life.

    It's quite the balancing act, though, with the Family looking over your shoulder on the one side and the Agency breathing down your neck on the other. Setting up new fronts, facades, and dummy businesses to more easily shuffle all those lire around is an exciting challenge, but there have been some tense moments when everything you'd built felt as fragile as a house of cards. So far, however, whether by skill or by luck, you've managed to prove your worth without any significant disasters. Just recently, you've amused yourself by playing "hide the money from Cecilio".
    It's fun to watch him scamper about playing accountant; you figured if he actually discovered that the Family was worth billions rather than the few millions you're letting him play with, maybe you'd take him on as an apprentice.

    But Enrico's death could change everything. Not everyone in the Family accepted you as readily as he did, although you do still have what you think of as friends. Still, fear, paranoia, and greed make people do strange things, and if the Family decides to close ranks, you'd be an easy scapegoat, so it's definitely in your best interests to get to the bottom of this as quickly as possible.

    You have no abilities besides your vote.

    You win when all threats to the town have been dealt with.

    Disheartened by the loss of two innocent people, who till their last breath wanted nothing more but the best for this family, you all decided to call it a day and headed towards your own rooms to rest for the night.

    It's now Night 3. Day 4 will start in 48 hours.
