Mafia XXXV — Lux Noir — Rules Roles and Signups

Post by The Silken Knot » Sat May 04, 2013 3:51 pm

Lux Angeles, City of the Damned. Can her mean streets be saved? If at least twelve plugs sign up below, by noon on Sunday, May 12th, we might get the skinny.


THE RULES:
  • 1. Night One will last 48 hours (Sunday 8PM – Tuesday 7:59PM). All other Days and Night will be 24 hours, beginning at 8PM and ending at 7:59 PM the next day. Times are US Eastern Daylight (GMT -4). A day/time converter is available here.

    2. During the Day phase, all players may vote to send someone to The Big House. The player(s) with the most votes against them will be imprisoned, and may not take any actions during the Night. They will go to the electrocution chamber at dawn the following morning, unless pardoned.

    3. You will not be forced to vote in this game. There will be no narrator-enforced penalty for not voting. I’ll let your fellow players take care of that.

    4. During the Night phase, you may PM any actions consistent with your character to me. Actions will take place according to the Order of Night Actions. Multiple actions in one category will take place in the order received.

    5. Please do not post PMs, or break any other Forum Rules. A dame will do what a dame’s gotta do.

    IMPORTANT ADDITION TO THE RULES!

    6. Please do not edit posts. Grrr.

    7. The World-Weary Physician can't heal the same person two Nights in a row, but he can heal/protect himself. Also, I said he could cure fresh cases of leprosy, when I of course meant herpes.

    8. If a player with an investigative role (The Hard-Boiled Policeman, The Private Dick, or The Two-Bit Grifter) is the first Night kill, they will haunt Lux Angeles as The Ghostly Gumshoe until their killer is brought to justice.

    • The Gumshoe's original role/affiliation won't be revealed, and they won't be told who their killer was.
    • The Gumshoe can participate in the thread, in the form of ghostly utterances.
    • The Gumshoe can vote, but only by PMing their vote to TSK prior to the deadline. No actual voting in the thread, on pain of immediate exorcism.
    • Once The Gumshoe's killer is dead, The Gumshoe fades into oblivion.



    Order of Night Actions:

    1. Infection or death based on Day voting
    2. Blocking, back-alley surgery
    3. Kill attempts
    4. Healing
    5. Investigations
    6. Pardon
THE ROLES:

The Angels with Dirty Faces (Town)
Win when they cannot be defeated by any other faction.

The Hard-Boiled Policeman (Sheriff).
  • • Can investigate one player each Night for guilt or innocence, by PMing the name to TSK.

    • Inherits investigation results of The Private Dick (Investigator) if The Dick is killed at Night.

    • Investigates as INNOCENT.

  • • Has one parent in the game. She knows who they are, but they don’t know if she’s playing.
    • If she votes for the same player as her parent does on any Day, she dies.
    • Investigates as INNOCENT.
    • Wins with the ANGELS (Town).
The Gin-Soaked Wordsmith (Seer of Sorts). Seeks inspiration in the bottom of a bottle.
  • • May seek a clue about one player each Night, by PMing their name to TSK.

    • Wins with the ANGELS (Town).
The Jaded Politician (Spokesman/Governor). Has The Machine behind him.

  • • Can choose one player to heal each Night, by PMing their name to TSK.
    • Will heal any gunshot wounds to the named player that Night.
    • Will heal new herpes infections, but after 24 hours, The Seedy Gigolo’s demon spawn are beyond the scope of modern medicine’s powers.
    • The World-Weary Physician can't heal the same person two Nights in a row, but he can heal/protect himself. Also, I said he could cure fresh cases of leprosy, when I of course meant herpes. Good thing I'm not the Doc!
    • Investigates as INNOCENT.
    • Wins with the ANGELS (Town).
The Gentleman Marksman (Vigilante). Has a soft spot for the ladies.
  • • Each Night, can attempt to kill one player by PMing their name to TSK.
    • Can’t kill female characters (The Snappy Dame, The Willful Daughter, The Femme Fatale). He will not be told why the hit failed if a female character is targeted.
    • If The Marksman targets The Hard-Boiled Policeman (Sheriff), he will die instead.
    • Investigates as INNOCENT.
    • Wins with the ANGELS (Town).
The Innocent Bystander (Snoop).
  • • Can tail one player each Night, by PMing their name to TSK.

    • Must name a second-in-command (Little Caesar) on Night One. One will be appointed randomly if not named.
    • Investigates as INNOCENT.
    • Wins with the PUBLIC ENEMIES.
The Struck-Off Plastic Surgeon (Mafia Spoiler). One little botched schnozz leads to a life of crime.
  • • Once during the game, can select any player to go under the knife by PMing TSK during the Night phase. After their plastic surgery, the chosen player will then investigate as innocent if actually guilty, and vice versa.
    • The Snappy Dame is immune to The Surgeon's scalpel.
    • Can be sent by The Fatman to attempt a kill on any Night.
    • Investigates as GUILTY.
    • Wins with the PUBLIC ENEMIES
.The Femme Fatale (Mafia Blocker). The female of the species.

    • Can be sent by The Fatman to attempt a kill on any Night.
    • Investigates as GUILTY.
    • Wins with the PUBLIC ENEMIES.
The Two-Bit Grifter (Mafia Investigator). Two bits is a fair valuation.
  • • Can try to con one player out of their role each Night. (PM your target to TSK.) Has a 1 in 6 (~16.67%) chance of success.
    • The Snappy Dame is immune to the Grifter’s charms.
    • Can be sent by The Fatman to attempt a kill on any Night.
    • Investigates as GUILTY.
    • Wins with the PUBLIC ENEMIES.

  • • Can’t be sent to kill, unless all other Public Enemies are dead.
    • Investigates as GUILTY.
    • Wins with the PUBLIC ENEMIES.
The Third Men

The Conflicted Anti-Hero. Hell is when your fate is in your own hands.
  • Chooses his affiliation on Night One, by sending a PM to TSK.
    • If no affiliation is chosen, one will be assigned at random. Not choosing is a choice, too, Sparky.
    • If Public Enemy is chosen, the Anti-Hero will investigate as GUILTY and win with the ENEMIES.
    • If the side of the Angels is chosen, the Anti-Hero will investigate as INNOCENT, and win with the ANGELS.
    • In either event, the Anti-Hero’s choice will not be made known to any other players… and if Enemy, he will not be told who his fellow Enemies are.
The Shell-Shocked Veteran (Serial Killer). They never shoulda shown him what a rifle was for…
  • • Must attempt to kill one player each Night, by PMing his target to TSK.
    • If no target is named, one will be chosen randomly.
    • Investigates as GUILTY.
    Wins if he’s the LAST MAN STANDING.
The Seedy Gigolo (Leper). He skates around plenty.
  • • Infects whomever he votes for with a particularly virulent strain of herpes that Night.
    • The Snappy Dame is immune to The Gigolo’s charms.
    • Anyone being protected by The World-Weary Physician will be safe from new infection, but not cured of prior infection.
    • Investigates as INNOCENT.
    Wins if >50% OF THE POPULATION IS INFECTED.

Best of luck surviving on the grim streets of Lux Angeles...

Thank you all for signing up!

I'll be sending out your roles this afternoon, and the game will start at 8PM EDT. The first Night will be extra long (8PM Sunday - 7:59PM Tuesday), to allow everyone to read the rules and formulate strategies. Please ask, here or via PM, if you have any questions.
  • Note: n00less cluebie has a religious obligation Tuesday-Thursday sundown. Arrangements will be made for him to provide his vote (and Night Two action, if any) early. Assuming he lives that long... :smt077

    Note: There are lots of power roles and possible interactions this time. The Days/Nights will end at 7:59PM, but I probably won't post until ~ 8:30. Please be patient.

I have enjoyed my tradition of never ever Ever having played a version of Mafia. But I am going to play this one. If only so Whirlibird will have one extra day of life.

I refuse to play unless Llama mama is in.

WhirlPlaid hopes nudeless and Whirly can find a truce so we can both actually play the game and NOT die on night one. ∞

Psst... *Manimal is in, too. I can't add to the first post any longer. It has nothing to do with swooning, either. Okay, maybe it has a little to do with swooning.
