Mafia LI sign-up thread

#1 Post by Jamiet99uk » Tue Nov 12, 2019 5:01 pm

Fog everywhere. Fog up the river, where it flows among green aits and meadows; fog down the river, where it rolls defiled among the tiers of shipping and the waterside pollutions of a great and dirty city. Fog on the Essex marshes, fog on the Kentish heights.

Gas looming through the fog in diverse places in the streets, much as the sun may, from the spongey fields, be seen to loom by husbandman and ploughboy. Most of the shops lighted two hours before their time, as the gas seems to know, for it has a haggard and unwilling look.

You're in for surprise. You're in for a shock. In London town streets, when there's darkness and fog. When you least expect him, and you turn your back.... he'll attack!

London in 1888 is not the gleaming modern metropolis of 2019. It is a dark and dangerous mass, riddled with barely-habitable rookeries where dwell a multitude of criminals, some more petty than others, and where an honest man ventures out after nightfall only if he is very brave, or very foolhardy. And even by day there is always the fog, the cursed belching of more than a million chimneys which carpets the sprawling mass and snuffs out hope as surely as it dims the sunlight.

Yet it is to this dim, now-distant London that our attention is drawn, for it is to be the location of MAFIA 51 - LONDON BY GASLIGHT

TOWN ROLES

You are SHERLOCK HOLMES, the DETECTIVE

During the day you must vote for a suspect.
At night, you may take ONE of the following actions. Each may be used ONLY once:

- COP SCAN - returns results of EVIL or NOT EVIL
- VANILLA COP SCAN - returns results of VANILLA or NOT VANILLA
- TRACK - select a target - you will see who they visit that night (if anyone).
- WATCH - select a target - you will see who visits them that night (if anyone).

You record the results of your investigations in your NOTEBOOK (item).

You are part of the town, and you win when both Mafia factions and Jack the Ripper are dead, or nothing can stop this from happening.

------------------------------------------------

You are JOHN WATSON M.D., the DOCTOR

During the day you must vote for a suspect.
At night, you may select a player to visit. You may *not* target yourself. If your target is attacked by a night killing action, you will save their life. They will learn they were saved, but not by whom. You may not target the same person on consecutive nights.

ONCE per game, at night, INSTEAD of using your save, you may conduct a POST MORTEM on a player who died the PREVIOUS night (only). You will learn the specific ROLE (but not identity) of their killer.

You keep your medical instruments used for both types of action in your DOCTOR's BAG (item).

You are part of the town, and you win when both Mafia factions and Jack the Ripper are dead, or nothing can stop this from happening.

------------------------------------------------

You are ISABELLA BIRD, the TRAVELLER (commuter)

During the day you must vote for a suspect.

THREE times per game, at NIGHT, you may TRAVEL out of town using one of your train tickets (item). On nights when you have done this, you may not be successfully targeted by any night action.

You are part of the town, and you win when both Mafia factions and Jack the Ripper are dead, or nothing can stop this from happening. You are FEMALE.

------------------------------------------------

You are CHARLEY BATES, the STREET URCHIN

Living by your wits on the streets of London’s less fashionable areas, you sleep lightly and see many things. You are ALERT. If anyone visits you at night, you will observe them visiting you.

You are part of the town, and you win when both Mafia factions and Jack the Ripper are dead, or nothing can stop this from happening.

------------------------------------------------

You are ADA LOVELACE, the GAMBLER

Each DAY, you may place a bet on who will be NIGHTKILLED the coming night. If you are correct, you may select one of the following reward items:

- A one use medical bag (doc save, used even if no save is needed)
- A one use dose of cocaine (makes you ALERT for the night consumed. If anyone visits you that night, you will observe them visiting you).
- A one use bottle of whisky (roleblocks target)
- A one use train ticket (commute)

Each reward may be earned only once.

You are part of the town, and you win when both Mafia factions and Jack the Ripper are dead, or nothing can stop this from happening. You are FEMALE.

------------------------------------------------

You are DOCTOR JEKYLL *and* MISTER HYDE

By day you are the kind and learned Dr Jekyll, the DAY DOCTOR. During any Day phase, at any point in the day, you may select a player. Once you have made your selection you cannot change it. If they are targeted with a killing action during that day or the coming night, you will save their life. You may elect to protect yourself. You may not target the same person on consecutive days.

Horrifyingly, for a short while each night, as a result of your ill-advised experiments, you undergo a bizarre transformation, and you fall under the grip of the evil Mister Hyde. Mister Hyde has a Night Kill on odd-numbered nights only. This Night Kill can NOT be withheld, and is directed not by you, but by another player outside of the sign up list. This player will be an existing webDip member who has played Mafia before. They will know your identity; you will not know theirs. If Hyde targets Jack the Ripper, or Dr Jekyll, the attack will fail.

You will know each morning if Mr Hyde has killed. If more than one person died overnight, you will not know which was killed by your own possessed hand.

You are aligned with the town, scan as town, and can only win with the town. If town win, whether you survived or not, you share in the win.

The player controlling the nightly actions of Mr Hyde is aligned with Evil, and may register a win separately from you if:

1. Either* of the Mafia teams wins, even if you (and thus Hyde) has died, or:
2. The game reaches a point where only you (and thus Hyde) and The Ripper are left alive.

If town wins, the player controlling Hyde's night action has lost.

Mr. Hyde (and therefore also Dr. Jekyll) is Third Party NK immune.

During the day you must vote for a suspect.
At night, you may take ONE of the following actions. Each may be used ONLY once:

- COP SCAN - returns results of GOOD or NOT GOOD
- VANILLA COP SCAN - returns results of VANILLA or NOT VANILLA
- TRACK - select a target - you will see who they visit that night (if anyone).
- WATCH - select a target - you will see who visits them that night (if anyone).

You record the results of your investigations in your NOTEBOOK (item).

You are part of Moriarty’s Company. You win when the Town, and the other Mafia faction, and Jack the Ripper are dead, or nothing can stop this from happening.


You are COLONEL MORAN, the STRONGMAN

During the day you must vote for a suspect.
ONCE per game, at night, you may perform an *unstoppable* nightkill.

You are part of Moriarty’s Company. You win when the Town, and the other Mafia faction, and Jack the Ripper are dead, or nothing can stop this from happening.

MAFIA ROLES, TEAM 2:


You are WILLIAM BURKE, the GRAVE ROBBER

During the day you must vote for a suspect.
Once per game, at NIGHT, you may visit the grave of a character that has died by whatever means. You will recover any ITEMS which had been in their possession on their death, and may use those items just as if you were their original owner, although limited-use items are not recharged.

If you obtain a NOTEBOOK, you will find out who the owner of that notebook investigated, and the results – obtaining a notebook does not give you the ability to scan, track or watch for yourself. If you obtain Jack’s KNIFE, this does not give your team an additional nightkill. Instead, if you yourself are targeted by a nightly killing action while in possession of the knife, you will kill your assailant instead (the knife is then discarded).

You are part of Burke and Hare’s Company. You win when the Town, and the other Mafia faction, and Jack the Ripper are dead, or nothing can stop this from happening.


You are WILLIAM HARE, ROLEBLOCKER

During the day you must vote for a suspect.
Each night, you may visit another player. This will ROLEBLOCK them and prevent them from performing any actions.

You are part of Burke and Hare’s Company. You win when the Town, and the other Mafia faction, and Jack the Ripper are dead, or nothing can stop this from happening.


You are a GOON

During the day you must vote for a suspect.

You are part of Burke and Hare’s Company. You win when the Town, and the other Mafia faction, and Jack the Ripper are dead, or nothing can stop this from happening. You are FEMALE.

THIRD PARTY ROLE

You are JACK, the WHITEHALL RIPPER

On EVEN numbered nights, you may perform a Night Kill using your KNIFE (item) on any player. If you target Mr. Hyde, your attack will fail.

You win the game if either of the following points is reached:

1. You have personally killed THREE female characters with your knife, by any point in the game.

2. The game reaches a point where only you and Dr.Jekyll / Mr.Hyde are left alive. At that point, Mr.Hyde wins with you, and Dr.Jekyll the rest of town, and the Mafia factions (which by this point are dead) all lose.

You are Third Party NK immune.

NOTE about VICTORY CONDITIONS:

With the exception of Jack the Ripper and Mr. Hyde, who are not a faction but can win together if they are the last two people alive, no faction can with any other.

If Jack the Ripper wins by fulfilling victory condition (1), the game ends and everyone else has lost.

## CALL GM What makes a night kill unstoppable? Can it be roleblocked? What if the targeted person had a knife? Does it just mean a doctors kit can’t help?

What happens to items when someone dies? Do they all get buried with them? If a doctors kit is recovered can it be used?

Are Goons vanilla?
