    Default FTP Mafia Game Thread

    Hello and welcome to the weirdest game of Mafia you will ever play. It is also the only game of mafia that penalizes you for the use of any special. Sounds fun, right?

    So you must be wondering, what is the theme for this round? Well, by now you must have wondered what the mysterious acronym FTP stands for... correct?

    Of course you have.

    It is life's greatest enigma. Specialists all around the world have struggled to unveil the true meaning shrouded in mystery, but so far none have prevailed.

    That's where you come in. As a generic participant of the .us forums, it is now your civic duty to journey into the abyss and unmask this mysterious man's true identity - to find out once and for all what F.T.P. stands for.

    But beware! It's not as easy as it may appear to be. "FTP" frauds all around you have adopted this title and proclaimed themselves the true FTP's of these forums. They will stop at nothing to bury the legitimate FTP and take his place as the Crowned Village Idiot of Mafia. YOU have been carefully selected to seek and destroy these phonies before they take over the .us forums and end the world as we know it.

    Do not disappoint your extraordinary host. The fate of the universe rests in your capable fingertips.

    Sincerely,

    The Authentic, One and Only FTP™



    Rules For This Round:

    1. No hard role-claiming.
    2. No outside communication, unless you're a fake FTP.
    3. KP cutoff is @ 6 PM Pacific sharp.
    4. Bold all votes.
    5. You are NOT required to send in a special, but you ARE required to vote to stay active.
    6. In honor of FTP and his brilliant ideas, No Lynch/abstaining is NEVER allowed. You must lynch every day.
    7. No betraying your own faction or giving up intentionally.


    Roles:

    Forum's Trustworthy Protectors

    Post Scrutinizer: An expert on all matters pertaining to FTP, this specialist has spent years studying his ways. He is so adept in FTP's mannerisms, in fact, that he can determine whether a forum poster is posing as FTP. Sadly, the true FTP can be rather unpredictable, rendering this skill a little meaningless at times. (Modified Cop: Investigation has a 25% chance of procuring an opposite result)

    FTP's Stalker: This .us dweller stares at the bottom of her PC screen all day, constantly refreshing the page, in the hopes that FTP will appear in the forums. Because of this, she knows who's online and what they're looking at in the forums, which can be very advantageous. Unfortunately for her, some people like to turn on "Invisible Mode" on occasion, which can make it difficult to acquire intel. (Modified Tracker/Follower: There is a 20% chance the special will fail to produce results. Additionally, FTP's Stalker will be unable to use her special the following day if this happens.)

    Forum Mod: Always a necessary evil. The forum Mod can temporarily ban anyone. Often this causes public opinion to turn against the poor mod, who is only trying to do his/her unpaid volunteer job like they're supposed to. (Modified Role-Blocker: Every time the Forum mod uses his/her special, any lynch vote in-thread against this person counts for 1.5 instead of just 1. The Forum Mod can be lynched by a half a vote!)

    FTP's Favorite: That one person who makes FTP's day worthwhile. Maybe it's a hilarious joke, or a compliment... In exchange, The Glorious FTP has granted this person an extra vote which may be PM'd as a special to him. Unfortunately (though understandably), people may get a little jealous of this person from time to time and react by shutting this person up with an insult or a trolling attempt. (Modified Double-voter: Every time FTP's favorite submits a second vote, there is a 20% chance this person will be silenced for a full 24 hours. This penalty action will not appear in the KP if it happens.)

    Reads Between the Lines: "Reads Between the Lines" is an expert in determining whether a post is valid or not. Consequently, he often spends so much time zeroing in on others' miniscule details that he neglects to monitor his own filter. (Modified Truth-Teller: May select a statement - ANY statement, maximum of 10 words - and PM it to the host to test for validity. Because this is such a powerful role, there is a 50% chance that its use will backfire on Reads Between the Lines. If this happens, he will not receive a result, and will instead be forced to post a self-incriminating statement (which could be anything!), written by the host, in the game thread.)

    Generic Interwebs Surfer: Just another guy/gal on the .us forums. They are not entirely worthless in this hunt, however. ONCE per game, each G.I.S. may attempt to save an individual from the wrath of the faux FTP's. But be careful - sometimes this attempt only results in the G.I.S's demise! (Modified Vanilla Townie & Single-Use Doctor: There is a 15% chance that the G.I.S. will die with their target if their target is selected for the kill.)


    FTP's Terrible Posers

    Freakishly Terrifying Profligate: About the baddest of the Posers. He decides which Poser will be sent to erase a forum-goer's profile for good, as if they never existed in the first place. Also, every time another player uses the acronym "FTP" in a post while Freakishly Terrifying Profligate is alive, that player will die. One thing Freakishly Terrifying Profligate did not anticipate, however, is that the mere mention of the name "FTP" from his own lips would unleash a wave of purifying light that would wash away the evil, making him a Generic Interwebs Surfer. [Modified Godfather - See above.]

    Frantically Tries to Pretend: Likes to mimic the writing styles of others because that's what Posers do. She's pretty darn good at it, but far from perfect... [Modified Actress - Can target someone each day to copy their identity. When Frantically Tries to Pretend dies, she will appear in the KP as the role of the last person she targeted. There is a 15% chance that this will fail and that instead a random living member of FTP's Terrible Posers will be revealed to all in the KP.]


    Foreign Trainee & Pupil: Not quite evil enough just yet, but he's working on it. He's new to the this posing business, and not always very good at it. [Modified Henchman - If Foreign Trainee & Pupil is sent in for the kill, there is a 20% chance his efforts will result in a role-block instead of a kill.]


    Some Pretenders Have Their Own Hidden Agendas

    Foolish Troll Poster: Wants to sully FTP's good name with his idiocy. He's just a moron. [Modified Fool: Wants to be lynched on an odd day on the calender (e.g. the 13th, 15th, etc.). If the Foolish Troll Poster is lynched on an even day, he loses.]

    Fiendish Team Player: Wants to expand his fake name, spreading it across the globe to overwhelm and overpower the innocents of the forums. He's not always persuasive enough, though. [Modified Cult: There is a 33% chance that a recruitment attempt will get the Fiendish Team Player killed. The original Fiendish Team Player submits the recruitment choice and each successful recruit will also be called "Fiendish Team Player". When the original dies, the next player to have been recruited takes his place. This faction wins by outnumbering all other remaining players.]

    Players:

    Rokchick
    Flossie - Post Scrutinizer
    Wildfire
    Mouse-Keyboard
    Vpindian - Fiendish Team Player
    Valynor - Reads Between the Lines
    Carni

    Ugh. I spilled water on my keyboard while shining my boots, and now the keyboard is no longer functional. So you guys might have to deal with my phone's autocorrect for this round. Sorry in advance.

    This is the funniest thing that I have read in a long time.

    Guys, Rokchick interpreted my post as "I don't know what an acronym is." This is the best thing I have read in a really long time. I almost want to sig it, but I really like the present form of my sig.

    Can we all quote this post in every thread?

    [haunt] Sorry, didn't mean to do that, but it is probably for the best, had some RL stuff get dumped in my lap yesterday that is clearly affecting my thinking. I read through the roles and chuckled over that twist....then foolishly go activate it. If I had known what was coming down the pike I would have withdrawn...again sorry [/haunt]

    Well, I may have been on the road for 11 hours today. I assume first KP should have happened today? Oh wait, time change may be messing with my days on the forum. Never mind.

    Please do. Any publicity!

    You are usually so specific with your blue, that I was worried you might accidentally do it too. But now I think it means you might instead actually be a terrible poser! Vote sticks.

    I'm sorry for starting that. I was just trolling. I didn't know people would take it seriously.
