    WELCOME TO THE GAME YOU NEVER SIGNED UP FOR! 

    I'm sorry, but Supa has had enough players to start his game for 2 weeks now. Apparently he does not want to start the game unless he gets more people, so I created a small game to host in the interim. I added Supa and removed Elminster. I don't think he will mind. If he does, I'm sure someone will back out or need to be replaced so he can join then. 

    If you don't want to play in this game... okay! If it completely falls apart... fine! Either way there is no game going on lol. And if Supa decides to get his shit together and post his game, I don't mind if ya'll abandon this one. I just think people are sick of waiting and he might very well hold out and wait until he gets like 3 more players. Who knows when that will be.

    Rules and some mod notes: 
     
    Standard rules apply. No editing or deleting posts, no copy and pasting roles, and no outside communication from non mod created messages with other players in the game. Flips will occur the following day phase, but I will acknowledge there is NO TAILOR in this game. DO NOT ASK ME ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE TAILOR ROLE. THERE IS NO TAILOR IN THE GAME. PERIOD. 

    Please ask me any questions in your private role PMs. I will not answer most questions publicly in the day phase. This is to avoid giving any potential game breaking information. I generally won’t answer questions about how the roles work mechanically, unless that role is already flipped and in the graveyard. I do this just to play on the safe side as a mod -- believe it or not sometimes even answering small questions can really screw over a scum team and it’s not fair to them. I will try to be consistent and as fair as possible while using my discretion about how to answer. 

    As far as roles go, your understanding of how a role works might not be the same as mine. I utilize role descriptions from all different sites, and sometimes I just take inspiration from the role and add my own tweaks to it. Sometimes I completely make roles up as an experiment as well. Sometimes my modding mechanics are not the same from game to game, i.e.  if X-shot roles keep their abilities on being role blocked or not. 

    I will also not explicitly say if a player has been role blocked; I may utilize different phrasing if a night action does not go through. It all depends on the game. Everything is on the table, and I mod each game separately according to the specific vision I have for it. In this game I'm choosing to be pretty vague. If there are any questions on how a role role works that isn’t in the graveyard, I will refer you to this OP to make things simple. 

    All roles in this game were randomly assigned. I will replace players as I see fit with public and/or private warnings. Please do not try to analyze role PM structure or the timing of when you think someone is online or on Discord. I will not ban these kind of frivolous discussions, but I'm warning you that I may try to play games so consider this at your own risk :)  I also gave scum options of fake character + role claims in this game, but you are welcome to focus on theme analysis if you wish. Good luck everyone!

    Pretty sure you’ve played mafia before but can you tell us where, how often, and familiarity with roles?

    Can I be a replacement. I will be reading the game while it is being played anyway, so subbing in should be easy to do.

    What did he do except lie
    under a pear tree, wrapped in
    a great cloak, and meditate
    on the heavenly bodies?
    Venerable, the good people of Baltimore
    whispered, shocked and more than
    a little afraid. After all it was said
    he took to strong drink.
    Why else would he stay out
    under the stars all night
    and why hadn’t he married?

    But who would want him! Neither
    Ethiopian nor English, neither
    lucky nor crazy, a capacious bird
    humming as he penned in his mind
    another enflamed letter
    to President Jefferson—he imagined
    the REply, polite and rhetorical.
    Those who had been to Philadelphia
    reported the statue
    of Benjamin Franklin
    before the library

    his very size and likeness.
    A wife? No, thank you.
    At dawn he milked
    the cows, then went inside
    and put on a pot to stew
    while he slept. The CLOCK
    he whittled as a boy
    still ran. Neighbors
    woke him up
    with warm bread and quilts.
    At nightfall he took out

    his rifle—a white-maned
    figure stalking the darkened
    breast of the Union—and
    shot at the stars, and by chance
    one went out. Had he killed?
    I assure thee, my dear Sir!
    Lowering his eyes to fields
    seet with the rot of spring, he could see
    a government’s domed city
    rising from the morass and spreading
    in a spiral of lights….

    In fact, XLAV was in the first game of Mafia I ever played on DDO five or six years ago, where he was one of the most experienced players.  I played five or six games with him perhaps and I thought of him as high risk/high reward kind of player.

    CORRECTIONS: 
    - I will reveal flips after each lynch this time 
    - I didn't give Mafia any options for fake claims 

    I just copy-pasted the OP from my previous game, my bad. The rest is applicable.

    I have a feeling you're an alt so I assume you know how to play. I will wait 2 days to ensure people know a game has started (lol - surprise!). If someone doesn't post by then, you can definitely be a replacement. Thanks for asking.

    You are claiming Chadwick Boseman?

    An ACTOR is a player that can only vote if the vote is a hammer. Otherwise, the Actor is modkilled.
    Actors are essentially never seen in practice, but are traditionally Town-aligned.

    Can you vote right now?

    So, each night period you select a name and if that name is lynched in the next DP they do not die?  Does the lynching still end the DP?  Is this power limited by number of times actionable?

    So then your power is confirmable.  If you tell us at the outset of DP2 who you chose we should be able to lynch that person without consequence.....How do we know you're not just some TP with a mission to lynch one specific player?
