welcome to mafia!
For those who don't know what Mafia is, these are the basic rules of Mafia, copied from MafiaWiki.
Mafia consists of two sides: the Mafia, and the Town. The Mafia's goal is to kill the innocents, while the Town's goal is to kill the Mafia.
At the beginning of the game, the Moderator will secretly send everyone their role. The Mafia will know each other, while (in the basic game) everyone else will only know their own role.
The game has two phases. Usually the first is Night. During Night, the Town can not communicate, but the Mafia can discuss and choose someone to murder. After the Moderator has received the name of the victim, the Moderator reveals the dead player, and Day begins.
During Day, the Town must choose someone to Lynch; they are trying to eliminate the Mafia, but the Mafia can lead them astray by casting suspicion elsewhere. Generally, players will vote for someone they think is Mafia (the Mafia will vote so that they seem to be doing this as well, and might even vote for each other to confuse the Town); when a player gets a majority of the votes, they are lynched. Their role is revealed by the Moderator, and it is once again Night.
The game alternates between Night and Day until either the Mafia are eliminated, or the Mafia have killed everyone else.
Also, we will be using the Other Party, which any character character inside wins as long as they live. Other party can communicate and preform night kills together.
Werewolf has the same powers as Mafia, but win if all the Towny and Mafia are killed. To prevent over-werewolf population, only Three werewolves can be in place at once.
Here are some Roles of the game, and the one being used.
Always will be me, unless I give the role to someone else. Don't confuse this moderator as an actual moderator of the forum. I basically controll roles, votes, ect.
Can 'investigate' someone and finding their role. To do this he/she PMs the moderator with the name of the player. Cop: Town side. Spy: Mafia side.
Every night, this person can kill someone by PMing the Moderator, with the name of the one they want to kill. Can be on either Town or Mafia side. May not be used, depending on how many players we get.
Mafia Leader. Sends in the mafia night kill requests to the Mod. When investigated, they appear to be on Town side. Can't be killed by any nightkill.
Wins as an other party member as long as: A) He doesen't die and B) The Godfather is dead at the end. Appears to cops, spies and other mafia as an ordinary Mafia.
Three time per game, this player can select one player and resurrect them via PMing the moderator. Other Party member.
Ordinary, powerless Towny, but once per game, (after dying, obviously) this player can resurrect him/herself via the moderator and become a werewolf character. If unconverted, he win along with towny.
Cannot vote for a lynch, but can still preform any other previously owned powers. Same side as before.
Can place members as Werewolf side. These converted characters keep any previous powers, including voting.
If you are confused by anything, feel free to post.
