SECRET SANTA MAFIA

PLAYER LIST:
1. Topsummoner Elf Eclectic, survived to the end!
2. Spirographed, Elf Counterfeiter, lynched Day 2.
3. Rory, <redacted>, modkilled Day 2.
4. Landerpurex, Ms Claus, survived to the end!
5. Aragorn, Abominable Snowman, lynched Day 4.
6. Thr, Elf Clerk, killed Night 2.
7. Frank, Elf Smuggler, lynched Day 3.
8. Kikori, Santa Claus, killed Night 1.
9. Pyro, Elf Worker, killed Night 2.

***Please read the extended rules that are specific to this variant!***

Standard Mafia Game Rules

1. Death is final. You are not allowed to post after being lynched or killed, except for one obligatory death post (“Bah!”) which must not include any game information.
2. Roles will be revealed upon death.
3. Discussing the game outside the thread is strictly forbidden unless your role PM explicitly allows you to do so.
4. Discussing the game with other dead players after you've died is strongly discouraged as information could potentially leak.
5. Using information from outside the game thread is strictly forbidden. This includes screenshots, talking about “who's online,” making outside bets, and directly quoting private messages from the host. You are allowed to paraphrase, just don't copy word-for-word.
6. Editing posts is strictly forbidden. Double post if necessary.
7. Day Phases will last 72 hours. Votes and discussion during “Twilight” (the time between the end of Day Phase and when the host makes an end-of-day post) are allowed.
8. To vote for a player, bold their name. To unvote a player, just bold “Unvote.” You do not need to unvote in order to switch votes, but it helps.
9. A lynch will occur once a player receives a majority vote. If no majority is made before the end-of-day post, a No Lynch will occur. You may also vote for a no lynch by bolding “No Lynch.”
10. You are not allowed to post during the Night Phase (unless it is an obligatory death post).
11. Night Phases will last 36 hours. Actions submitted during “Dawn” (the time between the end of Night Phase and when the host makes a start-of-day post) will NOT be accepted.
12. If you have a question please PM the host. I will be reading the game and only interfere if something game-breakingly bad is happening.

Extended Variant Rules

MOST IMPORTANT RULE: Day Phase actions are time-dependent! While Night actions always resolve in a typical order, actions submitted to me during the Day Phase will be processed in the order received!

1. Items will be underlined by me for clarity. There is no rule against using underline format for other things.
2. You can only possess 3 items in your inventory (unless your role PM says otherwise). If you would posses more than 3 items, any new items are dropped.
3. Dropping: PM me at any time to drop items, removing them from your inventory.
4. Trading: All trade must be orchestrated publicly and during the Day Phase (unless your role PM says otherwise). To trade with a player, bold “Trade <item name> to <Player Name>”. When that player replies with a reciprocal statement, the trade is executed. There is no limit to the number of trades you can make in a Day Phase.
5. Gifting: All gifting must be done during the Night Phase (unless your role PM says otherwise). This is separate from your Night Phase ability. PM me at any time during the Night Phase to gift items (at your own risk! This counts as visiting.) There is no limit to the number of gifts you can give in a Night Phase.
6. Using: Items can be used any time as allowed by their description. PM me at any applicable time to use items (sometimes at your own risk! Some usage counts as visiting.) There is no limit to the number of items you can use during any Phase.

IMPORTANT NEW VOTING MECHANIC: In addition to the regular Lynch vote, there will be an additional vote each Day Phase to reward one player with a secret Gift. The same rules for the Lynch vote apply to the Gift vote, except:

1. To Gift vote a player, boldly italicize their name.
2. Please isolate your Gift votes so I can spot them easier.
3. The player who reaches a majority will not receive the secret Gift until the beginning of the following Night Phase.


Here is what a Villager role PM looks like:

You are an Elf Worker, a Villager aligned with Santa's Workshop. During the Day Phase, you may vote for any player to lynch and/or vote for any player to receive a Gift. You are pretty vanilla. However, you are still able to use, trade, gift, and receive items. Your starting items are <redacted> and <redacted>. You win when all threats to Santa's Workshop are eliminated.

<redacted>: (description)
<redacted>: (description)

I concur. We must lynch him now for the sake of the metagame, we MUST teach people that they can't go around claiming "anniversary" and expect leniency. Topsummoner.

Trouble is brewing in the North Pole. Santa's Workshop is desperately trying to maintain production in time for Christmas, but a group of Rogues posing as Elf Workers have infiltrated and are threatening to shut down the festive operation for good. Items are going missing, Workers are being murdered, and the Rogues are slowly exerting more control throughout the White Wilderness. There is nowhere for Santa Claus and his helpers to run, so they decide to make a stand and fight back. Santa's Workshop must find and lynch the naughty Rogues among them through the clever dispersal of useful items and information. They face an uphill battle, however, as the Rogues are treacherous and crafty enough to use these resources against them in evil ways.

Day 1 has begun. It will end approximately 72 hours from now, on December 2nd at 8 A.M. CST. With 9 players remaining, 5 votes are required for a Lynch or a Gift.

Lynch Vote
Not voting (9): Topsummoner, Spirographed, Rory, Landerpurex, Aragorn, Thr, Frank, Kikori, Pyro

Gift Vote
Not voting (9): Topsummoner, Spirographed, Rory, Landerpurex, Aragorn, Thr, Frank, Kikori, Pyro

Notes: Role PMs are going out. PM me if you have any questions or think I missed something.

Yes, I realise that Jackstick isn't in the game, which is why I thought I'd just get that out, you know, pent up rage or something.

It also seems that I'm bad at formatting without an editor.

No Lynch/Gift votes are actually coming out of me yet.

This is going to be a weird game.

Rory for being weird and having to backtrack to justify a silly joke we otherwise would've just known is a Day One® joke.

Kikori because I know I'm a good guy.

Eh this is Rory's first game, I wouldn't read too much into that.

A totally bizarre game to start with though. I'm wondering to what extent we should be sharing information. It sounds highly likely, considering the example Vanilla PM Paid showed, that every or most players start with 2 items but there's not a whole lot of indication how many items there are and what the range of powers are.

Do you remember that one time we flawlessly destroyed the village in Jarons deductable reasoning Mafia?
So, second time. :awesome:

Bump.

@Lander, Pyro: come ***ON*** guys

---
Since it's going to change, presumably frequently, I'm going to just come out and say what my items are and what they do. I want to get the ball rolling here.

Coal: Day-use item, I can use it to reduce the count of that player's Gift Vote by 1 for the remainder of the phase.

White Elephant: Night-use, I can use this at night to swap it for the first item in someone else's inventory.

I don't expect every or anyone else to share their items but I want something to happen. At the very least I'd like to know if all the Vanillas got the same starting item or if it varies.

I find this suspicious, kikori.

It's very clear that whoever ultimately receives the gifts will have an advantage of some kind. It remains obvious that the mafia would want as few of these in town hands as possible.

Joke or not, voting for yourself to receive a gift at this point in the game is poor form.

It seems to me we can very easily weed out liars by trading items during the day phase. Who else is willing to test this theory?

Also, to receive a gift, said person must reach a majority vote? Or is it the person with the most votes?

In any case, topsummoner

I'm getting a town vibe already, highly unlikely he would claim his items so quickly if he were mafia.

With the heavy emphasis on items this game, shouldn't we assume there's some sort of bad items too? Maybe the mafia has to circulate them.
