Liar's Mafia - Out of Character
« on: July 07, 2012, 10:40:34 am »
Liar's Mafia
Cheat at your own peril.



Welcome to Liar's Mafia, where the number one rule is to cheat at your own peril. Yes, that's right! Cheating is not necessarily a bad thing in our game of Mafia; unless you're bad at it, that is. The standard rules of Mafia do apply in the sense that roles and powers will behave the same way they always have. In fact, just about everything will happen as it has in every other Mafia game we've played, but with that one exception. If you think you've got what it takes to game the system and manipulate your way to victory, we won't stop you!

With that said, we would like everyone to be aware that this game is still very much a proof-of-concept sort of project. Some aspects may work, some may not. We're going to find out the specifics as we play. So don't flip out if everything implodes around turn five. There is even a chance the game doesn't make it past the first phase. But we'll cross that bridge when we get there. Just remember to have fun and to keep an open mind. You will be cheated and swindled. It's part of the game.



Now then, early signups are open. We're looking for 19 people to fill out the ranks. All of the guidelines, roles, and other odds and ends will be posted on Monday or Tuesday (when I have off). So in the meantime, feel free to sign up and if you have any questions, please ask!

We should kill him first.

What about that time I came back from the dead and destroyed the entire mafia in one speech?

That was when I was still but a player.

Here's a list of a few of the sub-roles you can expect to encounter in Liar's Mafia. One programming note! Not all of the sub-roles will be listed or fully-detailed and some of the sub-roles are limited to specific factions. Which factions and what details? You'll never know... ;)

Double Trouble: Power to double vote-weight. Oh yes!
Surprise!: Find the surprise and you'll be given an offer you can't refuse. Maybe.
Survivor: Survive the whole game!
Grudge: There's this guy and you hate him. Kill him in three turns or less, please.
Hot Potato: The hot potato changes hands every night. If you have it, your powers no longer work.
Pacifist: You don't like to hurt innocent people. If you mistakenly lynch a townsperson, you'll lose all of your powers.
Follower: Infatuation is more like it. You vote the same way as a randomly-chosen target.
Bodyguard: Protect your client. If they die, you lose your reputation AND your powers.
Lover: Lovers protect one another and know everything about each other. If one lover dies, the other loses their powers.
Village Idiot: Intelligence isn't necessarily your thing. You only vote to lynch people that have already been voted for during a given turn.
Stalker: You're slightly mad. Psychotic, even. There's a certain kind of person that you like to kill. But I can't remember what kind of person that is... Let's just hope the other players aren't good at noticing patterns.
Usurper: Kill the Mafia boss and become the group's leader. Wearing their skin is optional but considered a nice touch.
Conviction: You're very certain about things like lynch votes and who should be killed. Your single-use power allows you to override the lynch vote and murder the "correct" person. However, when you use your power you will lose all of your other powers and your information is revealed to everyone. Fun!
Ghost: Ghosts are real. Even stranger is that ghosts like to vote. Even if you die, you are still able to vote!
Tie Breaker: Call it OCD or whatever you'd like. The thing is, you don't like ties. If there is a tie, you are required to break it or else lose your powers.
Traitor: Do everything in your power to make sure the other team wins.

That's most of the sub-roles. Hope you enjoy!

If you have any questions we will answer them as best we can. Some things we cannot divulge, though. Also, we are trying to keep this as friendly as possible. If you think a sub-role is drastically over/underpowered, let us know and recommend a way to fix it. We will listen! But only if you also offer up a solution. If you're just going to complain, take it elsewhere. 8)

So upon getting Source Filmmaker, I'm going to get my friends to narrate some parts from the last Mafia game, and see If I can make a short film with it. Is that fine with everyone? If it goes well I'll post it here! :D
