Mafia is already a frustrating crapshoot though, so adding randomised elements doesn't seem like it'd improve matters.

I think it would be kind of funny.  Might be more interesting to run as a RTD game with mafia elements.

As in, each player has to submit a turn like in a standard RTD, and things are processed from there.
Side thought:  Each player's turns are PMed to the mod?

Player1:  Ask RVS question to Player 3.
Player2:  Attempt gambit on Player 1.  (something like this and the following would have to be PMed.)
Player3:  Start bandwagon on Player 2.

P1 - (2) - "Player1 asks an awkward RVS question to Player3."
P3 - (5) - "Player3 responds skillfully and makes Player1 look like he was rolefishing!"

P2 - (6) - "Player2 picks up on Player1's rolefishing, and now Player1 looks downright scummy!"

P3 - (3) - "Player3 tries to call Player2 on his gambit, but everyone's attention is still on Player1."


In the spirit of RTDs often going batshit crazy, there should be little structure at the outset.  Maybe just a scum team and a town team (with the option of a cult spontaneously forming if someone gets awful/awesome rolls).

Night actions example:
P1 (vanilla town) - Inspect P2 - (1) - PM: "You're not sure about this cop business, but P2 looks like town to you.  However, you weren't exactly careful trying to investigate P2, so now everyone is looking at you funny."  (P1 is now miller, has negative modifier when defending against suspicion actions)

P2 (vanilla town) - Inspect P3 - (5) - PM:  "You never thought about being a cop before, but how hard can it be to rifle through someone's junk to find clues?  Apparently not very hard.  But P3 leads a pretty boring life, and you don't find anything suspicious."  (P2 becomes town cop, gets bonus on further investigative actions?)

P3 (vanilla town) - Kill P1 - (1) - PM:  "You've never killed a person before, but all you got to do is stick the pointy end in their soft bits, right?  P1 is totally suspicious, so you're doing the town a favor.  Unfortunately, breaking and entering is significantly harder, and by the time you get the door open, P1 is ready with a 2x4.  You are dead."  (P1 becomes PGO)


This is actually kind of amusing me now.  I'd consider running something like this if there's interest.   Although I think it should more go in the RTD subforum, since it's more like a mafia-flavored RTD.

Let us know if run it, Shakerag.


One of my ideas for a GBU sequel was having the The Good and the Ugly run a sort of RTD adventure where they are trying to blow up a bridge to end the game, and that's how they win. However, I still haven't' worked out how to keep the two of them invested in the game other than making both town and Confederates lose when they win or something.

rolls would be something like this:
1. action fails and everybody find out which player was targetted, but not by who./vote fails
2. action fails, but nobody knows about it./vote succeeds (vote should be pretty constant
3. action suceeds/vote succeeds.
4. Action succeeds/vote succeeds
5.Action succeeds and you get information about who else targetted your player. /vote succeeds
6. You get a second copy of your action and can target someone else./doublevoter.

Fun fact, I have put my win percentage at 33.33...% once again.  Still one of the lowest here, though.

My games:

Spoiler: Town 5/17 (click to show/hide)

Spoiler: Scum 3/9 (click to show/hide)

Spoiler: Third Party 0/1 (click to show/hide)

In general, if I get lynched as town, the town loses. Which is just about every town game. My current total is 8/27, so 29.6%. Who are the people who manage the corresponding 70% win rates?

There is not a one-to-one correspondance, due to the numerical imbalance of the sides.

I've got a 80% winrate, though the statistics are likely off due to only having played five games.

You are, more specifically:

Town (3/4):
BM 51 (win)
Operation Overlord (win)
BM Sprint 3 (win)
Choose-your-own-mafias (loss)

Scum (1/1):
Paranormal 24 (win)

My record:
Spoiler: Town 6/8 (click to show/hide)
Spoiler: Scum 3/3 (click to show/hide)
Spoiler: Third Party 0/2 (click to show/hide)

75% win record as town, 100% win record as scum (not counting the conversion incident) and my one attempt as a serial killer failed.

Clearly, I need to lose more often.
