===========================================
MAFIA 71 - PAPERS PLEASE! - SETUP INFORMATION
-- ISSUED BY THE MINISTRY OF INFORMATION --
===========================================


Arstotzka and Kolechia came out of the Six-Year War shortly before September 1982 and relations between the two countries remain somewhat volatile. A particularly heated subject is the status of the city of Grestin, a border town divided into East Grestin, which is under Arstotzkan jurisdiction, and West Grestin, which is part of Kolechia. Crossing the border between the two halves has been impossible, even for Arstotzkan citizens, until today, November 23rd 1982, when Arstotzka opens a checkpoint to allow entry from Kolechia.

Our little game focuses on some of the people who can be found in the vicinity of the Grestin border checkpoint on November 23rd 1982, and the days and weeks afterwards. The majority of you will be genuine entrants, waiting patiently in the huge queue that snakes its way towards the border checkpoint where the Inspector and his colleagues await you and look forward to examining your passport and other papers (which you hope are in order).

A smaller number those present, however, secretly represent different factions. The Order of the EZIC Star is a mysterious organization which ostensibly seeks to free Arstotzka from its greedy and corrupt leaders (although ironically their aims and methods may be surprisingly similar). The People's Front of Kolechia rejects the recently declared armistice and strongly objects to the partition of Grestin. The hated checkpoint serves as a focal point for their campaign.

What will happen in the winter of 1982? Will order be maintained at the Grestin border checkpoint, or will EZIC or the Terrorists succeed in their aims? Find out as we play MAFIA 71 - PAPERS PLEASE!

"Glory to Arstotzka!"

Setup for 18 players:


12 TOWN:
- 1 Inspector (Cop)
- 1 Investigator (Vanilla Cop)

==========================
INVESTIGATION RESULTS PMs:
==========================

Cop:
i) Your inspection reveals your target has VALID papers.
ii) Your inspection reveals your target has INVALID papers.
iii) During the night, you were roleblocked, and were unable to inspect anyone's papers.

Vanilla Cop:
i) Your inspection reveals your target has special documents and is NOT VANILLA.
ii) Your inspection reveals nothing out of the ordinary; the target is VANILLA.
iii) During the night, you were roleblocked, and were unable to inspect anyone's papers.

=======================
Order of Night Actions:
=======================
1. Enforcer Rolestop / Roleblock
2. Bus Driver swapsies
3. Forgery
4. Investigations
5. Killing
6. Doc Save

Note there are some important points of interaction between the Kolechian Enforcer and the Ezic Roleblocker, as follows:

- The Enforcer's power can be roleblocked, but if the Enforcer is killing the Roleblocker with their power, the Rolestop from the Enforcer takes precedence.
- Thus:
- If the Enforcer targets the Roleblocker, the Roleblocker will die and whoever the Roleblocker targeted will not be roleblocked (even if it was the Enforcer)
- If the Enforcer targets someone else and the Roleblocker blocks the Enforcer, the Enforcer will be roleblocked, the kill will fail, but they will not use up a shot.

GM NOTE:

With your Role PM you will also be sent a link / invite to the Mafia 71 Discord Server.

This is sent to all players regardless of role or alignment.

Everyone playing in the game should join this Discord server.

Deputy Supervisor Chaqa will then admit Mafia members to their respective Secret Chat Channels via that Server.

For more information please re-read this notice.

GM NOTE:

All ROLE PMs have been sent out. Please read your role PM as soon as possible and please also join the Discord server using the link which has been supplied to you.

WebDip's spellchecker identified that the word "Terrorist" was mis-spelled as "Terrorst" in some of the template role PMs. This was corrected in the PMs actually sent out. The clerk in the Ministry of Typography responsible for this minor error has been re-assigned to work at the State Turnip Farm in Nirsk.

##ask gm

Why tf is rule 10 back? This is why I said you were the worst gm. Even worse than eden which is hard to do.

The whole point of mafia is to mine karma. Anyway if there's no karma to mine than no reason to keep Bona alive. As per tradition my first vote is for Bona because he's useless without the +1 mining.
