Since this is a Mafia game, any player can lie, deceive, or mislead as much as they think they can get away with, all in the name of having fun. Please don't quote anything directly from any PMs you might send or receive regarding the game; but any information you might get that way can be repeated in your own words as much as you like.
The traditional day/night cycle will remain. The first night, one of the Florin Peasants (an NPC) will die! The next day, the players will vote first on a Mayor as a tiebreaking role. There will then be a vote on a player to be removed. That night, another will die at the hands of the Villains (unless someone happens to intervene), and so on.
Should you happen to conspire with others via private message, please remember to include me in the loop.Please do not vote to lynch yourself
. Also, I ask that all players vote in every lynch. If you know that you will be unable to vote in a particular round due to absence, etc., please let me know as soon as possible. Also, please put your votes, whether for Mayor or for the lynch, in bold
. Votes may be changed up until the final result is officially announced.
The Roles:Florin Peasants:
The townspeople. They must attempt to save themselves through the power of the lynch vote.The Mayor:
An elected role. If the lynch votes are tied, this role has the power to break that tie.The Lovers:
Westley and Buttercup, of course! Since this is an assigned pairing rather than one randomly chosen by the Cupid, the win condition for the Lovers is different than the usual. They are both good-aligned roles and share the win condition with the Peasants, that of lynching or otherwise removing all the Villains. The Lovers can trust each other implicitly. If either Lover is killed, however, either by lynching or during the night phase, the other Lover will also die of a broken heart. (See also The Doctor.)The Bodyguard:
Fezzik, the gentle giant. This role can choose one person to protect from the Villains during the night phase. They can also protect themselves, though they may not protect the same person two nights in a row. If the person being protected is targeted by the Vigilante, then the Bodyguard and the Vigilante will kill each other.The Vigilante:
Inigo Montoya, the Spaniard. This role can, once per game, choose a person to target and kill during the night phase. The target will die unless protected by the Bodyguard, in which case both Vigilante and Bodyguard will die in the ensuing fight.The Spy:
Vizzini, the Sicilian. Some call you ruthless, some mad, but you know things about people, and you're willing to share that information for the right price. (Note that this is a good-aligned role, despite the character.) This role can investigate one other person during each night phase and will gain information about that person's role. They will only
learn if the role is good or evil, however -- no specific roles such as "the Bodyguard" will be given, only Innocent or Villain.The Doctor:
Miracle Max. After the night target is chosen, this role has the option to intervene (once and only once) and save the target from death at the hands of the Villains. If Miracle Max chooses to save the target, the target's name will then be revealed to Miracle Max; if not, Miracle Max will not know who the target was unless or until it is revealed during the day phase. If Westley is successfully targeted by the Villains (that is, if the Bodyguard is not protecting Westley) and Miracle Max is still alive and has not yet used his ability, then Westley will automatically be revived and both he and Buttercup will survive. Miracle Max cannot save Westley from dying of a broken heart if Buttercup is killed, however, just as he cannot save Buttercup from the same fate.The Priest:
The Impressive Clergyman. Once per game, this role may choose to intervene in a lynch by testing the potential victim for innocence. If the target is innocent, that person is spared from death. If the target is guilty, the lynch proceeds as normal.The Villains:
The unholy alliance of the scheming Prince Humperdinck, the ruthless Count Rugen, and the mysterious Albino. Your goal is to eliminate all other players using your night ability and be the only players left standing -- and of course to start a war with Guilder.
