    Default Metal Mania Mafia

    MAFIA WIN



    Game Basics:

    In mafia, there are 2-3 opposing teams: The villagers, Mafia, and independents. The object of the game is to outnumber the opposing teams by either "lynching" or killing them.

    Rules Of The Round:

    1: Role claiming is allowed this round, but try to be creative and drop hints.
    2: Voting is done publicly.
    2.1: A no-lynch may be allowed at any point.
    2.2: You are allowed to abstain at any point during the game.
    2.3: Please bold any and all vote/FoS/Reasons. It makes it easier for me, and everyone else, to see so I don't make any mistakes.
    3: Skype, PMing, or any other form of outside communication is not allowed (unless your role allows you to).
    4: Please Keep the haunting to a minimum.
    5: If you have any questions or concerns about the rules or the round, pm me and I'll do my best to resolve it.
    6: If you do not like the role you are given, don't ruin the game for everyone else. Make the best out of the situation you are in.
    7: I get the final say, so don't push your luck.
    8: If after two days you don't post, vote, or send in your special you will be marked inactive. When this happens I will try to find a replacement for you. If you are not going to be on for a while, whatever reason it may be, please tell me so we can work something out.

    General Details:

    - Roles are selected randomly.
    - Not all roles may be used during a round.
    - Votes and specials are due by 11PM CST (UTC-6)
    - Each round will last 24 hours; I will make a post if any round is forced into overtime(another 24 hours).
    - Any ties will be solved by random.org.
    - Actions of the same type happen simultaneously
    - ANY special may be role blocked

    Order Of Roles:

    This is the order in which roles happen:
    - Roleblocks
    - Governor
    - Lynch
    - Bus Driver
    - Protection/Follower/Watcher
    - Kill-roles
    - Investigations

    KPs:

    KP-2
    KP-3
    KP-4

    Possible List of Roles:

    Ironheade(Town):

    Ormagöden - The Eternal Firebeast, Creamator of the Sky, and Destroyer of the Ancient World.

    Lars Halford - As the king of the Human Resistance Movement, he is very influential and praised for his courage. May send me a second vote each night.

    Lita Halford - The younger sister of Lars, she doesn't trust anyone execpt for Lars, especialy Ophelia, and will take matters into her own hands. May send me a kill-target each night. Appears guilty in investigations after the first successful kill.

    Ophelia - Unable to cope with her emotions, she thinks no one believes or trusts her. The black tears that run through her veins causes her to be unsure about her actions. Has a 20% chance to kill, roleblock, investigate, protect, or roleblock herself.

    Eddie Riggs - He is the worlds best roadie. His job is to make everyone else look good and take none of the credit. Since he traveled back in time, Eddie is very influencial and may stop a lynch from happening once.

    Mangus - As the stage manager, he makes sure everything is in check. Is able to target one person each night to read any system messages that person may have recieved.

    Kill Master - Do not worry he only chooses that name to scare off intruders. Being a master bass player he can heal even the most grevious of wounds.

    Fire Baron - Leader of a clan of outlaw humans, The Fire Barons strive to live only for the next battle, or the next bottle. It is rumored that if the Fire Barons returned they would burn their enemies alive. May investigate one person each night for their innocence.

    Rima - Leader of the Zalia, riders of the metal beasts. Her ancestors once fought aside Eddie's father and will do so again now. May paralyze one person for the whole day. The paralyzed target may not post, vote, or use their special.(target can only PM me if they have any questions)

    Guardian of Metal - He is The Keeper of Time and Secrets. Is given a list of random objects, but is not told what their uses are.

    The Hunter - Always boasting about his 'unbeatable' hunting record, he has experience killing anything that crosses his path. Only Emperor Doviculus can kill him; he can be lynched.

    Kage the Cannoneer - He learned from the best, Eddie, about how to lead his targets, making him an ace cannoneer. Is able to watch one person seeing who visited them that night.

    Kabbage Boy - Even though they are the worst heavy metal band, they believe they are the best. May send me a second vote each night; if the 'special' vote is the same as the public vote, This gives that person a total of -1 votes. Is told they are Lars Halford.

    Roadie - Since they hide in the shadows, only wear black, and are really hard to see from far away, they are the perfect stealth unit. May send me a target to follow each night, and see who they visited that night.

    Headbanger - The mighty Headbangers of Ironheade are both the group's namesake and its soul.

    The Tainted Coil(Mafia):

    Emperor Doviculus - As emperor of the Tainted Coil, he has enslaved the human race and won't give up his kingdom so easily. Appears innocent in investigations

    General Lionwhyte - His hair is so big and lucious, he uses it to fly around freely on the battlefield. With his knowledge of hair spray and make-up, he can disguise his victim in glam metal apparel to hide his victims role.

    Warfather - As the elite in the Hierarchy of the Coil, the warfather reads prayers from unholy tomes to heal his allies.

    Lionwhyte's Head Bodyguard - He can only rely on his two managers, the only two he knows will get the job done, Fear and Pain. May protect one person each night. If that person is markerd for death he dies instead.

    Battle-Nun - A member of Doviculus's personal guard, is able to distract one person each night keeping them from doing their nightly duties.

    Independents:

    The Squealer - Always trying to beat Eddie's "The Duece" (AKA The Druid Plow) in a race, he will stop at nothing to beat him. Is given three target at the beginning of the round and their exact roles. He only wins when all his targets die before him.

    Tick Chopper - Doviculus' unruly chopper riders are impractical during most battle conditions, but are able to isolate a target for death each night.

    It's OK, I made him rage quit, so now everyone can stop targeting HS. Though I suspect he should probably quit the call center job, like seriously and for realsies.

    I'll take votes, who should I work my powers on tonight!

    Well, if you're taking votes, I'd say use it on mb

    Interesting tactic though... we don't yet know how much will be posted in KP's, so we don't know whose specials will be revealed in KP and whose won't.

    Anyone want to suggest who I target tonight?

    Oh, and by the way... y'all are boring. Don't just "no vote" and "night 1"... start discussing, or accusing or something! Then when mobs make a mistake in their day-1 discussions, we can point back to you later!

    I'm immune to any such witch craft.

    I suggest you target yourself, Mafioso.

    I do whatever I want. You're mafia, discuss. You made a mistake before the KP even came.

    You are correct on all roles.

    As for the kp:
    role blocks are posted
    successful saves/protections are posted
    collector uses are posted
    I haven't yet decided if I'm going to say what faction/role does the kill in the kp

    Edit:
    Current Vote Count:
    No Lynch: 2 (the burninator, YeonAh)
    Bunyip: 1 (mbstokem)
    Trotter: 1 (Julius Caesar)

    You are immune to witch craft? What sort... the kind where I ask Sirv to use his role on you?

    I do not plan to target myself. I would like to target someone else. And I am not planning to kill anyone in doing it. Though I don't think I'll target you either, as that would be just too much expected. I'll have to pick someone else, and we'll see what happens tomorrow.

    Also...
    Vote: No lynch
    Reason: nothing to go on for anyone else

    kp coming up soon.

    kp-1

    As the Human Resistance Movement(Ironheade) gathered, Lars Halford stood upon a hill rallying his troops:
    "For too long we have lived in pits,waiting for good fortune to trickle down to us. But our days of waiting are over. We will not sit here and let Doviculus decide what happens next. We will gather up this great army and take it on the road!"*
    Having enough of dealing with his crap, the mob then dragged no lynch to the block and watched his body swing.

    No Lynch has been lynched and was a Headbanger

    After watching one of the Headbangers fall prey to the mob, YeonAh went back to her house to contemplate what convinced the mob to lynch an innocent victim.

    YeonAh was roleblocked

    Valynor was walking by a Metal Forge, minding his own business, when the Guardian of Metal popped out and dragged him into his lair. "Man, you've got to buy this new paint job, Chrome Vengeance, you'll have the sweetest car on the block!" Valynor tried to tell him that he didn't earn any fire tributes to spend, but the Guardian of Metal wouldn't let him leave for the night.

    Valynor was roleblocked

    Ophelia saw FTP in a bit of trouble in the Razorfire Boar pit, when she noticed he was in trouble. After fending off the Boars, she decided to protect him for the night in case something else came his way.
    Ophelia protected FTP

    Riding his Chopper searching for something to burn, The Burninator smelled the scent of hair spray in the area. He turned the corner and wasn't seen until the next morning. His body was found burnt to a crisp; the mafia must have used a can of hair spray as a torch against him...
    The Burninator was killed and was The Fire Baron

    *altered to better fit the story

    On a side note, I couldn't help but laugh when you got your role.

    I would ask if you're intentionally skipping details for some reason, but I believe you just typically do miss details, so I won't hold it against you.

    As you noted, yes the schitzo is in play. It's noted right in the KP that they protected you:

    So we know the schitzo (Ophelia) didn't role-block. But look at the potential role list... only 1 role-blocker listed (unless the unknown Ormagoden role can role-block too?)
    Ironheade(Town):
    Ormagöden - no information given as to a potential role?
    Lars Halford - mayor
    Lita Halford - vigilante
    Ophelia - schitzo
    Eddie Riggs - governor
    Mangus - journalist
    Kill Master - doctor
    Fire Baron - cop
    Rima - paralyzer
    Guardian of Metal - collector
    The Hunter - granny
    Kage the Cannoneer - watcher
    Kabbage Boy - town drunk
    Roadie - follower
    Headbanger - vanilla?

    The Tainted Coil(Mafia):
    Emperor Doviculus - godfather
    General Lionwhyte - janitor
    Warfather - mob doctor
    Lionwhyte's Head Bodyguard - mob bodyguard?
    Battle-Nun - roleblocker

    Independents:
    The Squealer - grudge-bearer
    Tick Chopper - serial killer
    The only role-blocker on that list is mafia, the Battle-Nun. So here's the KP details again:

    Valynor was walking by a Metal Forge, minding his own business, when the Guardian of Metal popped out and dragged him into his lair ... the Guardian of Metal wouldn't let him leave for the night.
    Valynor was roleblocked
    There's clearly a difference. Valynor seems to have been blocked by the Guardian of Metal, which is the collector. So there are not 2 role-blockers, but 1 (mafia) plus the collector. That either means that YeonAh is not mafia (since the mafia role-blocker targeted YeonAh), or else mafia is trying to clear YeonAh as town, by being able to make such an argument. Problem is... either is possible. I believe we have enough smart players that one may have tried to get a mafia in the clear that way.

    And finally, the kill was noted with a few details, but I don't know if they're actually relevant, or just part of the story - I'd be inclined to believe they're just story. But here they are nonetheless:

    The Burninator was killed and was The Fire Baron
    The only thing we do know is that the kill wasn't performed by the Janitor (General Lionwhyte), which seems to indicate that role isn't in play, otherwise mafia likely would have used it.

    I'm thinking there are 3 mafia, obviously the rb is one, the god father and I believe the mafia doc is in play. I still think jk is mafia, so.

    vote: jk

    From a town perspective, your post here is pretty useless. You gave us information and didn't explain why you thought what you did, or why you're voting Jason. A random reason-less vote on day two does us no good.

    FoS: mbstokem
    Reason: I've seen what mb looks like when he actually tries to sniff out the scum on day 2. This is not that. If there's no "why", you're not helping town.

    And yes, I missed the collector detail in my recap. That means there is either just one mafia-aligned role-blocker, or another role-blocker was inactive/chose not to send in special, or YeonAh is a role-blocker and her being role-blocked prevented her from sending in her role-block. Since I don't see a town-sided role-blocker anywhere in the list of roles, the former must be true.

    If the role-blocker is mafia, then they'll probably try to target town PR's, otherwise they're not being useful to the mafia. I know what's going to happen eventually - people will be cornered and scared into soft-claiming. I suggest that the watcher (if there is one) keep an eye on every PR that outs. What's great about the watcher role is that it doesn't even have to be in play to have the right effect. As long as the mafia does not know whether it is in play or not, they'll fear the worst and make choices that may not benefit them as much. The mafia is afraid of being outed more than anything else. For this reason, the watcher is infinitely more powerful than other town-assisting roles such as the doctor. While the idea of a kill being stopped may cause mafia to consider an alternative simply because that would be annoying to them and would slow them down, the idea of being thrown out into the open is much more terrifying.

    So don't underestimate the tracking roles. If a watcher and the mafia each selected a person at random of the 14 playing (For the example I'll assume 3 mafia and that the mafia would not kill one of their own), there would be about a .65% chance they would land on the same person. However, mafia like to kill either the top town analyzers, cleared towns, or players who have hinted at being a town PR. Thus, it's fairly easy to predict mafia's top kill choices as doc, watcher, or bg if you think in terms of who you would most want killed if you were mafia. The existence of these roles create sort of a WIFOM for the mafia, which then is forced to make a tough choice of sacrificing a good kill simply because as long as they don't know for sure, the cat is both alive and dead.

    It was from my phone and I don't care if you think it was useless. Just because you think it's random all you want, I have my reasons and I have my reasons for not saying exactly why I'm voting for him. It's a hunch and I follow my gut in this game, sometimes I'm wrong sometimes I'm not. So FoS me all you want for not living up to your standards on what you think I should and shouldn't say in a post accusing someone, but know that in my eyes you look like an idiot for doing so. Kthx.

    Vote: mbstokem
    Reason: Overreacting to a FoS way too much.

    EDIT: Grudge-bearer much, mbstokem? LOL. I would think you'd be smarter about getting people lynched, but guess not. I had to look back to see if there was a Fool in play because it almost looks like you're trying to get yourself lynched.
