M74 SIGN-UP THREAD: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT

#1 Post by worcej » Thu Apr 07, 2022 6:45 pm

M74 GAME INFORMATION

GM: worcej
Cohost: whichever kouncil member draws the short straw
Day Phase Deadline: 2pm Pacific / 5pm Eastern
Day Phase Length: 48 hours
Night Phase Deadline: 2pm Pacific / 5pm Eastern
Night Phase Length: 24 hours
Anticipated Start Date: Monday, April 18th, 2022 - but sooner if it fills up.


MAFIA OVERVIEW

Mafia is an educated guessing game of epic proportions. The objective of this game for the town majority is to kill all mafia members before they outnumber the rest of the town. The objective of the mafia minority is to survive until they outnumber the town. The game is typically very active, so the thread will grow quickly. However, it is essential to read the thread to play the game.


GENERAL RULES

TL;DR - normal mafia rules.

This game follows standard WebDip Mafia Rules, located here.


MISCELLANEOUS NOTES

TL;DR - Don't be a shitlord.

Players may be warned, forcibly replaced, or modkilled for violation of game rules. The GM team will attempt to minimize disruption to the game, but will use whatever means are needed to preserve the integrity of the game.

Players who have site-wide muted other players are asked to unmute them to play this game. Players who have been silenced on webDiplomacy due to site infractions will be forcibly replaced from the game.

Players who wish to quit playing may be replaced at GM discretion. Replacement is not guaranteed. Substitutes cannot participate in spectator chats until they sub into the game and are subsequently removed from it (e.g., by dying).


VOTING

TL;DR - no changes to the voting mechanic in this game.

To vote for a player, type ##VOTE <player> (e.g. ##VOTE Eden). You may unvote by typing ##UNVOTE. You may switch from voting one player to another without unvoting first (e.g., if you ##VOTE Eden then type ##VOTE Bona, you will vote for Bona). You may choose to no-kill by typing ##UNVOTE. You don’t need to type out the player’s full name, but failing to do so may lead to ambiguity that causes errors in vote tallying, particularly with the bot. In the event of a tie vote at the end of the day, no player will be killed.

You may vote to end the day early by typing ##END. If a majority of players are voting ##END and casting the same vote (whether for a player or to no-kill), the phase will end early. If the day ends more than 8 hours into the start of the day phase, the remaining time will be added to the next night phase; if the day ends less than 8 hours into the start of the day phase, the next night phase will end 24 hours early.

SETUP DETAILS IN NEXT POST; PLEASE HOLD!

SETUP INFORMATION

M74 is based on the Mafiascum setup Doctor Lonely found here.

TOWN:
1 Town Indecisive Doctor (Indecisive = cannot visit same target multiple nights)
1 Town Phone Operator Neighbor
13 Town Neighbors

MAFIA:
1 Mafia Rolecop Neighbor
1 Mafia One-shot Vigilante Neighbor
2 Mafia Neighbors


Role PMs

INDECISIVE DOCTOR - You are the Town Indecisive Doctor. Each night, you may ##SAVE a target to prevent them from being killed by the Mafia. Because you're indecisive, you have no neighbor and you cannot save the same target each day.

PHONE OPERATOR NEIGHBOR - You are the Town Phone Operator Neighbor. Your neighbor is [INSERT NAME]. Each night, you may ##CHECK a player. If the player had a neighbor at the beginning of that night phase, you learn the name of that neighbor. Otherwise, you receive NO RESULT.

NEIGHBORS - You are a Town Neighbor. Your neighbor is [INSERT NAME]. You can talk to your neighbor in discord at any point during the game.

ROLECOP NEIGHBOR - You are the Mafia Rolecop Neighbor. Your neighbor is [INSERT NAME]. Each night, you may ##VISIT a player and will learn what their role is. Your mafia team will be listed in the mafia chat channel in the game discord.

ONE-SHOT VIGILANTE NEIGHBOR - You are the Mafia One-shot Vigilante Neighbor. Your neighbor is [INSERT NAME]. One time at any point during a day phase, you may message the GMs with a ##shot [target] command to kill a player. The GMs will process it ASAP (meaning we'll process it when we see it). Your mafia team will be listed in the mafia chat channel in the game discord.

MAFIA NEIGHBORS - You are a Mafia Neighbor. Your neighbor is [INSERT NAME]. You can talk to your neighbor in discord at any point during the game. Your mafia team will be listed in the mafia chat channel in the game discord.

Order of Operations
No interactions really come into play, so this is irrelevant.

SPECIAL NOTES
  • The setup needs 19 to launch - if we get less players, it'll be modified down to 17 or back to basic Doctor Lonely if 15 is only option.
  • Mafia chat is open at all times.
  • Neighbor chats are open at all times.
  • No roleblock mechanic in this game.
  • Town Doctor is the only role that starts the game with no neighbor.
  • Every neighborhood has two neighbors.
  • Every neighborhood with a Mafia neighbor has a Town neighbor.
  • Phone Operator could be paired with a Mafia Neighbor.
You can now pick this setup apart or sqweal in excitement and put your name in a list.

Another note:
The game requires all players to be in the discord channel before the game will launch. Discord will be more utilized in this setup compared to others due to the neighborhoods.

If we do not have all players in the discord at the planned launch time, the game will be delayed until that occurs.

GM Note:
Caught a typo - role PM for doctor is actually this:
INDECISIVE DOCTOR - You are the Town Indecisive Doctor. Each night, you may ##SAVE a target to prevent them from being killed by the Mafia. Because you're indecisive, you have no neighbor and you cannot save the same target each night.

I guess I won't be playing in this one, but I may be spectating, and I do have a setup query:

PHONE OPERATOR NEIGHBOR - You are the Town Phone Operator Neighbor. Your neighbor is [INSERT NAME]. Each night, you may ##CHECK a player. If the player had a neighbor at the beginning of that night phase, you learn the name of that neighbor. Otherwise, you receive NO RESULT.

##Call Worcej:
What is the exact meaning of "had a neighbour"? That is, does it mean "if that person's neighbour was alive?"

For example, let's imagine that Zultar and Kestas are neighbours.
Zultar is voted out on D1.
The Town Phone Operator checks Kestas during N1.

Does this generate a result of (a) "Zultar was Kestas's neighbour" because that was originally the case, or (b) "Kestas has no neighbour" because the neighbour had already died?

My own question for GM worcej:

"ONE-SHOT VIGILANTE NEIGHBOR - You are the Mafia One-shot Vigilante Neighbor. Your neighbor is [INSERT NAME]. One time at any point during a day phase"

Even the first day? So like, mafia could just murk someone 2 minutes into the game?

"had a neighbor" means that it's possible that the target the operator scans has their neighbor die during the phase.

An Example of this interaction:
Eden scans Chaqa.
Chaqa's Neighbor is ghug.
ghug dies during the night phase because scum think he needs to die.
Eden's result will be "Chaqa's neighbor is ghug."

In the above Zulta/Kestas, the result for TPO would be "NO RESULT".

Not playing this game because I'm too busy and also it's at a cursed eod. However, this setup looks like a ton of fun, and I hope everyone has a lot of fun.
