Thread: Game of Thrones Mafia - Game Thread

  1. #1

    Default Game of Thrones Mafia - Game Thread



    "When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground."

    Robert Baratheon, King of Westeros has died and Eddard Stark has been executed.

    The House of Lannister are desperately trying to hold onto the throne, coronating Joffrey Baratheon, son of Cersei, who was the wife of Robert Baratheon. It is said that Joffrey was the son of Robert Baratheon, but it is clear that he is not and the talk of the kingdom is that he is actually the son of Cersei's brother Jamie.

    Executing Eddard Stark has sparked an invasion from the north headed by the son of Eddard, Robb Stark.

    Furious at the ******* Joffrey usurping him of the Throne, Stannis Baratheon, brother to Robert Baratheon is also riding an army to the capital of Kings Landing.

    Rumors of a Targaryen girl raising an army on the eastern continent of Essos have been circulating. The House Targaryen had ruled the Iron Throne of Westeros for 300 years before their family was defeated by Robert Baratheon. With Robert dead, would this Targaryen make a vie for the throne? Are the rumors true that she's the mother of dragons and has hatched the first three dragons in modern history?

    Can The House of Lannister hold Kings Landing? Who will win the Iron Throne?

    Role List (all roles may not be used, but all roles will come from this list):


    House Lannister "The Town":



    A golden lion rampant on a crimson field

    Tywin Lannister:

    Tywin Lannister is the patriarch of the Lannisters and is all but ruling Westeros through Joffrey. Tywin Lannister is extremely adept at winning wars. Tywin Lannister is also the richest man in all of Westeros.

    Tywin is able to role block one person a day

    Cersei Lannister:

    Cersei's husband, Robert Baratheon, has died. Not that she cares, she hated Robert as much as he hated her. Cersei has done everything necessary to ensure that her son Joffrey Baratheon would take the throne, including orchestrating the execution of Eddard Stark. Cersei is extremely cunning and manipulative and would do anything to protect her children.

    Cersei is able to use her wit to save one person a day, ridding them of any special (not the lynch).

    Tyrion Lannister:

    Tyrion Lannister was born a dwarf. He has been the disgrace of his family since birth. What Tyrion lacks in physical stature he more than makes up for in intelligence. Tyrion is known as the most intelligent man in all of Westeros.

    Tyrion is able to take one post a day and learn if the post is true or false. Any false statements in a post makes the entire post false.

    Jamie Lannister:

    Jamie Lannister, brother to Tyrion and Cersei, is one of the most skilled fighters in all of Westeros. Jamie is also the one who betrayed the Targaryan king and, literally, stabbed him in the back. Jamie's reputation has been sullied but he is nothing but loyal to the throne and his family and is charged with protecting the King.

    Jamie is able to protect one person a night, dying in their place.

    Citizens of Kings Landing:

    Vanilla townies.

    No special abilities.

    House Stark "The Mafia":



    Winter is Coming

    Robb Stark

    Robb Stark, the son of Eddard Stark, is beloved in the North. They call him their King.

    Robb Stark may send in one kill per night. Robb appears innocent to all investigations. Including Tyrion.

    Lady Stark

    Lady Stark is the wife of Eddard Stark. She is extremely intelligent and loyal to her family.

    Lady Stark is able to role block one player a night.

    Bran Stark

    Young son of Eddard and Lady Stark. Bran was crippled after being pushed from a tower by Jamie Lannister and is unable to walk. Bran has a strange ability to take control of animals far away from him..

    Bran Stark is able to spy on one person a night and find their exact role.

    Northern Warriors

    Fiercely loyal to Robb Stark, they will fight to the death for him.

    No special abilities.

    House Baratheon "The Second Mafia":



    Ours is the Fury

    Stannis Baratheon

    You are the brother of Robert Baratheon and in the event that Robert had no children you are the rightful heir to the throne. You believe King Joffrey is the product of incenst and is a *******. You and your people are fighting for you right.

    Stannis is able to send in one kill every night. Stannis appears innocent to all investigations. Including Tyrion.

    Melisandre "The Red Priestess"

    The Red Priestess worships the Sun God and is a practitioner of unknown magic. She uses her powers to assist Stannis.

    The Red Priestess is able to role block one player a night.

    Davos Seaworth

    Extremely loyal to Stannis and extremely suspicious of The Red Priestess. Davos is Stannis' most honest and loyal supporter.

    Davos is able to investigate one player a night and find their exact role.

    Stannis' Army

    Loyal and skilled warriors.

    No special ability.

    Daenerys Targaryen "The Masons":



    "Daenerys Stormborn, of House Targaryen. Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons”

    Daenerys

    Daenerys is the Mother of Dragons and the Great Khaleesi. She is ready to take the iron throne and take back Westeros. First she needs an army...

    Daenerys is able to recruit one player a night. If she recruits a Baratheon or Stark, it does not go through. If Daenerys is able to recruit three players, a special game mechanic is set off.

    Independents:


    Petyr Baelish

    Petyr Baelish, also known as "Littlefinger, is a skilled manipulator and uses his ownership of brothels in King's Landing to accrue intelligence on political rivals.

    Petyr Baelish needs only to survive to the end and he wins.

    Arya Stark

    Arya Stark is headstrong, fiercely independent, disdains traditional women's pursuits, and thus is often mistaken for a boy. Arya becomes increasingly hardened and brutalized, and personally kills a number of men. She compiles a list of people she intends to kill.

    Arya has her list of people to kill and wins if she lives to see their demise. If Arya completes her list she then must decide to join the Starks or go into hiding as a Kings Landing citizen.

    Varys

    Varys is a eunuch and the Master of Whisperers on the king's small council. He is a skilled manipulator and commands the largest network of informants across the two continents.

    Varys is a mystery with unknown objectives.

    The Mountain

    The Mountain is well known for his size, cruelty, and prowess in battle. He is extremely tall (he is close to eight feet in height). He has "massive shoulders and arms thick as the trunk of small trees." Gregor weighs over thirty stone (420 lbs), nearly all of it muscle, making him near inhumanly strong.

    The Mountain is able to kill one person every other night. He wins if he is the last player standing. No faction can win while The Mountain lives.

    I know in the last double mafia it was deemed better to no-lynch. Not to start a big (understatement) argument like last round, I do think this round is a little different because of the masons. I think that everyone might gain a lot of knowledge after the first KP but for now I will just RVS:

    If an acronym (such as RVS) is used can we please have it first written out completely so that everyone who hasn't really played before can know what they mean.

    Daenerys seems more like a Cult than Masons to me, since she's separate from the town.

    To be fair, the difference in the two is simply that Masons can win with town, while Cult is expected to win separately. That said, you're right-- both in the OP and in the lore, Dany isn't exactly pro-Lannister.

    Oh, by the way, you can role claim in this one. I would do so at your own risk though as there are hidden mechanics in this game and that could prove a very poor move.

    i honestly don't think we have to analyze this too deeply. I feel like everyone should want to no lynch regardless of alignment this round.
    Vote: No-lynch
    Everyone gets info which is going to be badly needed.

    Any guesses to the setup? I'm assuming all indies and at least 3 maf from each faction. Maybe something like a 9/3/3/1/4 or 7/4/4/1/4?

    At first when I read your question, I honestly didn't know what to expect. I'm sure there will be at least 3 of each Mafia though. But this round, there is (or at least is the potential for) Town, Mafia1, Mafia2, Masons, and Indies. So there's all kinds of options. But then I started going through numbers, references, and came to some sort of a conclusion by the time I finished typing this response.

    My best reference would be the 2-Faction round I hosted back in February:
    http://forum.travian.us/showthread.php?t=153834
    ... even though it had Werewolves and Mafia as the 2 Factions (and the Werewolves had a bit of a twist to them), balancing the round would be fairly similar. I had 21 players, and used 4 Mafia and 5 Werewolves (who had to attack at least in pairs, so they needed more members than Mafia). It ended up *fairly* balanced, both in sims, and in the actual game round.

    Assuming Conun either ran sims, or otherwise balanced the round fairly "equally", with 20 players, 2 Factions, and potentially Masons, I wouldn't be surprised if we have 4 of each Mafia. The Masons could effectively become another Cult/Mafia (see Mason description, where if they recruit 3 players, "a special game mechanic is set off"), but until that point, they either die quick before they gain momentum, or they are like a communicating-town-friendly group who are able to work together to try and effect lynches as a group (like Mafia can).

    Anyway, my first instinct is that there probably aren't all listed roles (specifically Indies), since that's often how "Potential Roles" work. But when raised the question, and noted an assumption that all Indies are in play, I counted Power Roles (PR's) listed. There are only 15 non-vanilla/goon-type roles. So with 20 players, and the role list given, if I were hosting I'd use every Power Role listed, and finish the balance as shown below:
    Town - all 4 PR's, 3 Vanilla's
    Mafia1 - all 3 PR's, 1 Goon
    Mafia2 - all 3 PR's, 1 Goon
    Masons - 1 to start
    Indies - all 4
    So this is the 7/4/4/1/4 that floursifter listed. If one (or both) of the Mafia have only 3 total members, it would likely mean more Townies (since there's no Vanilla Indie, you can't really double-up Indies, and I don't see any reason there would be 2 Masons to start). But based on how I balanced my round, if either Mafia have 5, we're probably in trouble already!

    Based off what you guys told me last round when there were 10 and I asked why not 3/3/3/1 you said it was because it was too skewed in the mafias favor. so wouldn't having 7/4/4/1/4 be just as bad as 3/3/3/1 because 3town/10players = 30% town which is similar to the 7town/20players = 35% ?

    There ended up being 5 town and 1 indie last round so 50% town. With that logic us having 9 town with the 9/3/3/1/4 division making 45% town make more sense to me.
