Choose-Your-Own-Masquerade - Dance 3 - TOWN WIN
« on: July 18, 2014, 06:30:36 am »

CHOOSE-YOUR-OWN-MASQUERADE

Choose Your Own Masquerade is a variant of Choose Your Own Mafia. It's a mafia game  in which points which can be spent on powers at the beginning of each night. It's different in three ways:

Deep South: There's no nights, actions happen when they're sent in, but may be queued up in advance.

Masquerade Each player is assigned a mask colour at the beginning of the game, and they only know the colour of their own mask and what other mask colours there are in play. Powers can only be targeted at masks, not players. Votes still target players.

Kill-Frenzy Unlike the last CYOM game, there's no conversion power.

At the beginning of the game, each player is allotted an alignment (either town or scum), and a mask colour (red, purple etc.), and has five points to spend on powers. They can also take up to -5 points in flaws. The mafia don't get a mafiakill by default, but they do have a chat in which they can discuss (among other things) how they'll build their powers. Character Creation will last 24 hours or until everyone has sent in a build, whichever happens first.

Scum collectively can't kill more than one target in a phase. A player can only use one power per day, unless they have an auto that says otherwise. If a player targets themselves with a non-self targeting power, it will fail.

Kills won't be processed for the first 24 hours of each Day, to allow everyone a chance to see the thread and send in an action.

After the lynch the day resets and every player gets 1 point for surviving the day. At any time in the game players can buy off any flaws they have, cash in an old power for half its original cost rounded down and buy new powers. A power can't be sold if it's been used that day, but players can queue up buying and selling to happen as soon as the new day starts (so they're not hanging around with unspent points).

HMR stands for Hazardous Materials Requisition, not Horrible Massive Ruination, though I can understand how one could get confused.

Tempting....

Okay fine, if there's one thing I'm good at, it's breaking oaths to myself.

I'll try one more game.

Pretty much. I do love to fakeclaim though, it's a flaw of mine.

Also, stop thinking yourself a bad player, cause you ain't.

Yeah, well, in the last CYOM you really had no choice as the converter.  That game was broken in so many ways, but I apparently made a more convincing case than Leafsnail and predicted his conversion target, so I still remember that as one of my favorite games of mafia, up there with GBU and Jack's BYOR (I actually really enjoyed that, despite what seems to be otherwise).

Also, NQT, can the game start be delayed until next Friday, otherwise I have to out.
