[Game Thread] FM2 - DeadNight

Welcome to FM2 - Dead Night

You know the Klinester is a fan of new and exciting setups, and this one won’t be any different! Players new and old are welcome to join for fun, and to gain points for your season rankings. Your mod for FM2 will be @EricKline. Let’s all have a great game!


Rules

1: Follow the Chief Delphi forum rules.

2: Be respectful to the hosts and your fellow players. Attacking other players in a personal manner is strictly forbidden.

3: Don’t throw the game. Always play with the intent of helping your faction win.

4: Don’t be inactive. If you do not post meaningfully within 24 hours or at least five times in any given phase, you will be prodded. Receiving two prods or failing to respond to a prod within 12 hours will result in your removal from the game. Attempts to “prod dodge” by barely meeting this limit are discouraged.

5: Do not discuss the game outside of the game. Anywhere. It’s not worth it.

6: No editing or deleting posts for any reason without express moderator permission.

7: No posting after the majority is reached or at night. I can’t lock the thread, so I’m relying on you all to just follow this rule and not post. Repeated or egregious failure to comply will result in your removal from the game.

8: Do not quote/screenshot private host messages. They’re private for a reason.

9: Angleshooting is strictly prohibited. This involves any and all methods outside of the game thread that may help determine a player’s alignment, including your own. If this occurs accidentally, PM the hosts. If this occurs intentionally, it may be considered cheating.

10: Keep the thread clean of outside influence. Dead players cannot interact with those alive in any way, including liking posts in the game thread, or voting in polls. Living players, likewise, should direct all questions to the hosts through PMs, rather than just pinging them in the thread. No vote counts will be given by the dead, nor will they end the day.

11: Do not edit the OP for any reason without host permission. If you believe you can make a positive contribution, PM the hosts first.

12: It’s a game - have fun!


Gameplay

Hosting
• This game will be hosted by @EricKline

Setup:
• This game will run a 17p cutsom setup known as “Dead Night”
• There will be additional flavor, in the form of diary records.
• A final vote count will be posted 5 minutes before role flip, to allow for mistakes to be pointed out in role PM’s.
• There are 3 town PR’s and 2 mafia PR’s
• The rest of the roles will be Town Citizens, resulting in 13 Town vs. 4 Mafia


ITA’s

This game will be running ITA’s. ITA’s, standing for “In Thread Attack,” is a mode of attack that every player will have the opportunity to shoot at another player at any point in the day. While it’s not required that you use your ITA every day, it’s common practice to use your ITA every day. ITA’s can be used once per day. To use your ITA, you must type the following in the game thread:

/Shoot @player

Failure to follow the format may result in a failed shot. “False Shots,” defined by the shooting of a non-existent player, dead player, yourself, or anything resembling a shot, will have a 100% failure rate, and use your one shot.

All players have a base chance of 15% of any given ITA working. All ITA results will be run by discobot in dead chat to ensure mod honesty.

ITA’s are processed in the order they come in, and will affect subsequent votes and ITA’s should the original ITA hit.

Roles:

Vanilla Town

Town Citizen

You don’t have any special ability, but may still vote to eliminate the Mafia during the day.

You win if all Mafia players are eliminated.

Town Sheriff

Town Sheriff

You can chose to use your ITA during the day as normal, but with a 70% chance of hitting, or withhold your ITA until night time, and have a 50% chance of hitting. Note that if use your ITA during the night, the origin of the shot will not be revealed, but your target will be notified. To use your ITA during the night, you must first withhold its use during the day, and then type the following in your role card:

/Shoot @player

You are allowed to target the same player on consecutive nights.

You win if all Mafia players are eliminated.

Town Veterinarian

Town Veterinarian

Every night you can chose to investigate one player and receive their alignment, or you can protect one player from any night ITA’s, mafia night kill, and all ITA’s for the following day. Player will be notified of their protection. To investigate a player, type the following in your role card:

/Investigate @player

/protect @player

You cannot self-target or target the same player on consecutive nights.

You win if all Mafia players are eliminated.

Town College Student

Town College Student

Every night, you can send one message of any length to any other player. They cannot respond, and will not know the origin player. To send a message, type the following in your role card, followed by your entire message:

/Message @player

You may target the same player on consecutive nights.

You win if all Mafia players are eliminated.

Mafia Goon

Mafia Goon

You don’t have any special ability, but may carry out the Mafia’s factional night-kill.

You win if the number of living Mafia players is equal to or greater than the number of livingTown players at any point.

Mafia Body Builder

Mafia Body Builder

You reduce the chance of any ITA hitting you to 5%, no matter the origin. You may also carry out the Mafia’s factional night-kill.

You win if the number of living Mafia players is equal to or greater than the number of livingTown players at any point.

Mafia Accountant

Mafia Accountant

Every night, you can investigate one player to determine their role. You may also carry out the Mafia’s factional night-kill. To investigate a player, type the following in the mafia chat:

/Investigate @player

You cannot target the same player on consecutive nights.

You win if the number of living Mafia players is equal to or greater than the number of livingTown players at any point.

Setup Notes:
• No roles may self-target.
• Veterinarian may not target the same player on consecutive nights.

Phases:
• Days will start at 12:00 PM MWT and last 48 hours
• Nights will start at 12:00 PM MWT and last 24 hours
• Day 1 will start 2019-12-29T19:00:00Z

Voting:
• To accuse someone, say “## /vote [Player_Name]
• To rescind your vote, say “## /unvote
• You may vote for nobody to be eliminated by saying “## /vote NoElim
• The host will give current vote counts whenever they are available to do so
• Votes are automatically locked in at LyLo (lynch or lose) and may not be changed once placed

Eliminations:
• Every day will have a deadline elimination - whoever has the most votes when day ends will be eliminated
• Starting Day 2, if a majority number of votes is reached on a player, the day will end immediately with their elimination
• It will be made public when the game is in LyLo (when anything but a correct elimination will lead to Mafia victory)

Mafia Mechanics:
Mafia may communicate at any time
Mafia share a factional night kill, which is a single standard shot for their faction
Mafia factional kills are mandatory - they must submit a target every night
Mafia factional kills are assigned, and can be stoped by a successful night ITA.
Win Conditions:
• The Town wins when all Mafia are dead
• The Mafia win when they match or exceed the number of remaining Town players and have ensured this cannot be undone


F.A.Q.

What is Forum Mafia?
Here is a short guide from Mafia Universe describing the basics of Forum Mafia. In short, it is a variation of the party game Mafia (also known as Werewolf) that has been adapted to be played on internet forums.

How do I join?
You can reply to this post with “## /join”, or simply express an interest to play, until the game fills.

What does _______ mean?
There is a great glossary of various Mafia terms that may be used on the Mafia Universe Wiki.

I’m still confused.
Feel free to ask me any and all questions you may have via PM.

If the game is full, can I still play somehow?
Once the playerlist is full, I’d love to have some backups in case anybody drops out or is inactive. Backup players might be called upon at any time to fill the shoes of a player that needs to be replaced. You may join as a backup at any time by saying “## /backup” in this thread.

My Doctor always told me that a diary would be a good way to releave stress…I supose now is a pretty good time to give it a chance. Over, about the last month, the world has been at war. Zombies, or whatever you want to call them, have taken over. Luckiy, they are more like Walking Dead zombies, not World War Z.

I met my group in Albuquerque, we were all moving West away from the hoard. Everyone seems to have a different story about where it started. Some say New York, one said Michigan, heck, somone even said Paris…its irrelevant to me. Ever sense I lost my mife back in Oklahoma City, everything seems irrelevant. Watching your dearest friend and partner get ripped from your arms is something no one should have to go through…

Yesterday we ran into a group of 'em, about 40. Normally, it wouldn’t have much of an issue, but they came from all sides at once. We tried fighting them off, but we were outnumbered 17-40… well, 18-40…we lost Larey “Litten” Fredrickson in the attack…

We ran into a nearby wearhouse, conveniently it has plenty of food and water, inconveniently, were trapped inside. I am beginning to suspect that a few others had gotten bitten and are hiding it, but I have no proof. What worries me is that the virus takes a few weeks to totaly manifest itself, but zombie tendencys apear instantly…they might not be able to control it.

I know Ill be sleeping on top of the shelfs…just incase.

I miss my wife every day, somtimes joining her doesn’t seem like such a bad thing.
