What is OSBM?
Open Setup Bastard Mafia is just plain mafia, with a few elements that are unusual to the usual DDO/DART mafia culture.
Open setup - An open setup game means that I will reveal the game setup in full in the OP of DP1, but not which slots go with which players. For example I may say there is a doc and 6 vanillas versus a goon and a strong man but not which player is the doc or who the mafia are.
Bastard - The setup and game mechanics I have planned match one or more requirements to be considered 'bastard' as defined below:
The nature of these bastard mechanics will remain my secret until the start of DP1 but I will tell you now that I will not at any point lie to any players about anything. This means no hidden flavors to roles, no false roles, no dishonesty from me regarding the setup or special game mechanics, and I will not lie in response to any question asked directly to me by a player (though I may choose not to answer some questions)
This game setup requires exactly 9 players or 10 players. 8 or less will not work, 11 or more will not work. Spots will be given on a first-come-first-serve basis though anyone that wishes to may sign up as a replacement whether or not all slots are filled.
