The Mafia Game: Number Eight Rules & Sign-Up
(This is game 8, right?)
All right, I'm running this game and I know a bunch of you have been waiting for me to make this thread. xD So here it is. The Mafia Game Number Eight.
Here's how it goes:
You are the surviving members of a small town, fairly secluded from civilization, since technology hasn't been invented yet. There have been a number of mysterious deaths recently, and your current mayor has been getting really worried. Unbeknownst to the townspeople, this mayor has quietly contacted a mysterious organization which is more than happy to dispatch someone to end your little killing problem... for a price. However, people are still dying, and re-elections for the role of mayor have arrived.
As you learn, there are five zombies among twenty normal villagers... that males twenty-five townspeople.
The duty of the "townies" is to hunt down the zombie Mafia by lynching as many villagers as necessary per night, using the majority vote to determine the unlucky soul who will not live to see the sun rise. The duty of the zombies is to attack an innocent villager every night, in the hopes of finally narrowing down their number to a minority.
Fortunately, the townies have help.
The guardian is a simple townie gifted with protective powers. He or she will choose one villager each night to protect against a zombie attack. Unfortunately, due to limitations, the guardian themselves cannot protect themselves for more than one night in a row.
The seers (there's two of them) work together to use their own special gifts to determine the secret details of whichever villager they choose, each night - that is, their allegiance. Townie, zombie, or guardian?
The mayor, as I have mentioned, is to be elected on the first night. He or she will be gifted with a vote that counts as two... but be careful! You may elect a zombie if you're not careful!
Got that? The townies want the zombies dead, and can only survive by killing each and every one of them. The zombies want a majority, and must use cunning techniques to whittle down the numbers without being discovered.
There will be a bulletin board that can be accessed by PMing me each night with your message... general rules of the forum apply; no images allowed.
So... rules? What rules? Screenshots are perfectly acceptable. Do I really need to mention the obvious?:
Our zombies unfortunately are lacking contact with those that allow them to create more... that is, dead townies remain inanimate corpses, and take their secrets with them to the grave.
And on that note, your dear dispatched slayer isn't afraid to... incapacitate you if you don't post in three days. That means a ban. Be careful.
The days will be 48 hours total, with a twelve hour "night phase" included. Use your time wisely. :3 IRC is an acceptable substitute for PMs if you can find me. Days start at midnight... EST? Um. It's ~12:45 here right now. So there.
If I've missed anything, tell me, please.
And feel free to sign up now~

^ I think that it was implied that that would be allowed, though I guess now I can't trust you no matter what...
so, when a person dies, are the roles revealed... to anybody?
well,if you really can photoshop screenshots i guess no one can really trust anyone...
^ Some people have are know to be more capable in those areas, I couldn't do it even if I wanted to.
I like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
