Okay, this game is very similar to Werewolf, so if you haven't played before I'd advise you to check that game out. Or check wikipedia, one of those.

Still, the basic rundown is that there are a group of people in a town/village, and amongst them are a number of annonymous mafia members. The premise is that the citizens have to figure out (through subterfuge, observing behaviour, paranoia and just plain random guesses) who the mafia are and kill them. Of course, nothing is so straightforward, as at the same time the mafia are working together to pick the citizens off. The catch is that the mafia know exactly who one another are and can work together to take the town on tactically.

Mafia is divided into a Day phase and a Night phase. The Night phase is simple: this is when the mafia members decide who they're going to kill, and when people with other specialist roles (more on these later) use their special abilities.

The Day phase is where everyone (yes, this includes the mafia, duh :P) votes for who they want to lynch. This is of course where all the wonderful misdirection and suspicion kicks in. Needless to say, the person with the most votes to their name gets it in the neck from the angry mob.

The town wins if they can manage to wipe out the mafia.

The mafia scores a victory if, at any point, there are more or an equal number of surviving mafia members to living citizens.

Available Roles:

Citizen: As basic as it gets, with no special knowledge or abilities. Hey, at least you've got the right to vote.

Mafia: Part of the criminal organisation out to make a mess of the town. They get to collaborate on who to murder in every Night phase.

Cop: Every Night phase, the Cop gets to choose one person to investigate. Their side will then be revealed to the Cop. Obviously, though, even if they do find a mafia member, they have to convince the rest of the town of that.

Deadbeat Cop: Which is not helped at all by this guy. Essentially the same as the Cop, the difference here is that the Deadbeat Cop's reports are randomised: Basically, a Citizen could show up as a Mafia member and vice versa. Kicker is, he's told he's the regular Cop.

Doctor: The Doctor can pick one person in every Night phase to protect, although of course this could work to the detriment of the Doc's side if he chooses the wrong person...

Vigilante: This guy is a bit of a whackjob. Once again in the Night phase, the Vigilante can pick one person to take out. Very much a loose cannon.

It's a possibility that not all of these roles will be active during the following game. It depends how many people we get.

General Rules

* Although this probably goes without saying, no communication between non-Mafia members outside of this thread is allowed. That would kinda defeat the object.

* I'm going to come down on inactivity pretty hard, so be warned that you'll probably wind up dead if you miss a couple of phases.

* Try to keep your roles under your hat a bit. As in, don't go yelling out "I'm the cop and I discovered X is in the mafia!" for one thing it's too open for abuse, and another... well, you might not be the real cop, might you not?

* I'll see how things go, but I'm looking at 2-3 days per phase (Depends on activity levels).

* Mafia members and those with Specialist Roles must PM their targets to me during the night phase. The former have to come to a unanimous decision for the kill to go ahead.

Anyway, sign-up HEEYAH and I'll try to get the ball rolling ASAP.

Well, seeing as my werewolf game took a shit and died, I'm all for joining this game instead.
