PostWOLF MAFIA
by Dannie Lennox » Tue Aug 20, 2019 8:51 am

I had ventured to Partasti, a medium-sized town at the centre of the Forest of Old Future, one of the nation of Grcade's most storied landmarks. Each year, a carnival took place in the town, and this year, a world-famous Rapper was due to headline the event, as part of an unlikely but well-received comeback tour. I travelled there in my official capacity as a reporter for one of the capital's tabloids, though I'd planned to take some personal time to enjoy the many sights and attractions.

Unfortunately, upon arrival, the place was a ghost town: the rapper had been brutally murdered just hours before, and the entire carnival cancelled. Details were scarce, venues paranoid; the only places crowds gathered were at ticket offices, where punters fought to gain refunds and early passage home.

I stuck around, still guaranteed payment by my employer. I had called them to suggest I investigate the crime, but they'd already printed the story, and multiple lurid details they'd invented, in my name, so the 'work' was done. Finding a viable place to waste the weekend was difficult, though, and I eventually came across a tavern that hadn't closed its doors.

Several drinks in, I had retreated to a corner to exchange gossip with an elderly figure. The hooded man (I am recalling a deep voice, though I must confess, the true nature of the speaker's gender, I cannot be sure of) told me with certainty that the town was reacting to the killing out of fear that an old danger had resurfaced.

"I guarantee it," they told me, "this is the work of the Wolf Mafia."

"But how can you be sure?" I posited.

It was then that the light dimmed, and dark figures began to approach our corner table. I began to hear a twisted version of an ancient tune, sung softly, reverently:

There are wolves among us,
The Dogfather grins.
They rip and devour us,
Last man standing wins.


"I can be sure," spoke the figure, standing and removing their cloak, "because I AM the Wolf Mafia."

It was then that the wolves killed me.

Will you avenge me?


Welcome to Wolf Mafia!

A classic GR-style 'AYA' game, with some changes that will hopefully make it easy to commit to (and easy to run!) but without omitting all the hallmarks that make these games so much fun.

Rules:

It's 'classic' AYA? so if you're already familiar with the format, the main changes you need to be aware of are:

    ♤ Deadline for a Mayor to be elected each day is 9pm;
    ♡ Deadline for Villagers to vote for who they want lynched is 8am;
    ◇ Hidden roles' deadline for actions is 5pm. The outcomes of these actions are announced shortly after;
    ♧ Once a decision has been PM'd to me, it can't be changed.

If you're new to the game, or just fancy a refresher, the full rule list is below.

FULL RULES OF WOLF MAFIA

All active players form the Village. Publicly, every member of the village claims to be a Human.
However, a secret informed minority are actually Wolves, who report to the Dogfather. They are the Wolf Mafia, and every night, they kill other villagers.
The goal of the game for the Humans is to identify and kill the Wolf Mafia. The goal for the mafia is to outnumber and defeat the uninformed majority.
If the game is not won by the Humans by the conclusion of play on Friday 13th, the Wolf Mafia are victorious.
Likewise, if their living pack equals or outnumbers the remaining living Humans, the Wolf Mafia take over the village and win the game.

Every day, by 9pm, the thread must publicly elect a Mayor.
Anyone holding the position of Mayor is immune from all kills while they hold that position.
No one can be mayor on consecutive occasions.
The mayor must nominate two other players who will face that day's lynch.
All other players then vote via PM to me who they wish to lynch.
The mayor can also choose for there to be no lynch.
Once their choice is named publicly it cannot be changed.
The sooner the mayor publicly states their choice, the longer the other villagers have to vote.

Once a player submits a decision to me via PM (be it a lynch vote, wolf kill or any other action), that decision is irreversible.

Voting for the lynch closes at 8am the following day.
At this point I will announce in the thread who has been lynched and their true nature.
Any hidden roles (including the members of the Wolf Mafia) will then have until 5pm to submit their decisions to me.
At this point I announce the outcomes of any decisions taken, and the cycle begins again.
Though a mayor's term only ends upon official election of a new mayor, the public campaigning of, and voting for, new mayors can take place at any time.

In the unlikely event that a vote for Mayor is tied at 9pm, the position will go to the first person who can attain a clear and visible public majority in the thread to be Mayor after 9pm (i.e. we go on until someone wins, either through a new voter having their say, or someone switching an existing vote to a different candidate).

Please note: weekends will form part of an ''extended session" linking Friday to Monday and won't see the game operate in its regular format.
So usually the sequence of deadlines is: village elects mayor 9pm at night, village lynches a mayor's nomination 8am the next morning, hidden roles submit moves deadline 5pm later that day.
On a weekend the sequence of deadlines is: hidden roles deadline 5pm Friday as usual, village elects mayor by 9pm Saturday, village lynches a mayor's nomination 8am Monday morning, then on as usual.

This means that in total, the game will last for 13 'days', and if not won by Friday 13th, the Wolf Mafia win by default.
(Role numbers have been deliberately adjusted to give both sides a fair chance of winning the game in the time allowed.)

All players get one vote each in mayor elections and lynch votes.
All roles are randomly assigned.
You may not share your role PM.
You may not share print screens of any PMs you send or receive in relation to this game.
You may not post when dead.
If you do any of the above three things, you'll be booted out of the game instantly, and I reserve the right to ask the mods to do worse to you as punishment.

Sharing your role PM verbatim, screenshots etc is forbidden because it's a guaranteed way to confirm your role to another player with the same role - and therefore defeating the very point of the game.
However, this doesn't mean you're not allowed to reveal your true identity to others, either via PM or publicly.
If you do choose to reveal yourself, you're basically not allowed to prove it. But you're allowed to describe your role, to paraphrase it, and so on.
Likewise, you're also allowed to pretend to be something you're not, if for whatever reason you wish to...

The Wolf Mafia can initially make three kills each day.
This number decreases by one each time they lose a team member.
However, this number will never decrease below zero.
If the Dogfather is killed, the wolves will mourn for a day, meaning they would miss the subsequent day's kills.


The first deadline for actions will be 9pm on Tuesday 27th.

Stay active
It's 50 / 50
Not all is what it seerns
You only get one shot
You've got half a chance
Someone could save you
Don't trust the old ways
Some things never change
Two heads are better than one
Don't believe everything you read
Sharing is caring
What comes with great power?
Wild wand is missing between worlds

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.
