Mini Mafia 1 Day Two

(Everyone submitted an action, so you can have a little more time to talk.)

It seemed like an ordinary night. A detective sat about, unable to sleep.
"Huh," she muttered to herself. "Where did I put my notebook?" 
She was searching through the drawers of her disorderly desk, when she heard a knock on the door. She peeked through the peephole before opening it. One of her fellow police officers, or...?

She didn't like to think that the cops had been betrayed by one of their own, but that's what the signs had been suggesting. She didn't open the door. Maybe she should pretend to be asleep or not home?

"It's me. Help me, please! She--She tried to kill me!"

The detective wasn't about to let one of her fellow police officers die. She wasn't that kind of person.

Snow Stormberg opened the door and was met with a knife to the stomach.

Snow gasped for breath. She'd just thought of the perfect witty comeback, but she was too dying to say it.

"Cat got your tongue? Pity." The mafioso stabbed Snow one more time to put her out of her misery. She died with a grin on her face, laughing at her own joke that she'd never get to tell.

The next morning, the angry screech of Henry the telepathic ninja owl brought the remaining townsfolk to the scene of the crime. They buried their fallen comrade under a tree, had a brief but emotional funeral service, and then went back to giving each other suspicious glances.

It is now Day 2.

Comment moderation will be turned off as soon as I've emailed out the results of everyone's night actions. You can use this time to discuss amongst yourselves in the comment section and try to sleuth out the mafioso. You do not have to share the results of your investigations, though failing to do so may make you seem suspicious.

If you want to hang a suspected mafioso, you can type vote [player's name]
If you want to redact a vote (which you can only do before it's reached a majority), type unvote. Please use bold! The code for that is <b>Bold text</b>

You are not obligated to hang somebody, though failing to do so may give the mafioso an advantage. However, hanging an innocent citizen has very major bad consequences in a game this small.

The day will end Tuesday April 26th, at 8PM GMT (1PM Pacific Time) unless a majority is reached and someone is hanged, or unless people vote skip day, which also requires a majority vote.

The majority of votes needed today is 3.

If you have any questions, comment them in italics or email me.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Well.. That's actually quite useful. *hugs Snowy* Rip!

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

I investigated snow and got suspicious btw

Villichora said...

Wow I'm really sad now lol

This means if Silente is telling the truth, she is insane or paranoid.

I also wonder... since Fabi is telling us what happened at night in a story form, she is writing what the real characters/people themselves would say. Would that give us any clues as to who did it based on personality?

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

I was wondering that, it'd be a nice little hint, especially if based they choose the weapon and the line they say..

Did you investigate someone El?

Villichora said...

I did investigate, but I think I'll share Day 2.

This game is extremely difficult for the cops, just saying. One person dies almost every night and day, which means if the cops don't get super lucky, the mafia will win after day 2, especially with no doctors.

Hamlet, Prince of Denmark | Moss Elsinore Cryptic | Fabi S. said...

Mod powers incoming!

I wrote the story while thinking about Snow rather than the mafioso, so it's probably not the best place to look for a hint. The mafioso had no creative control over it.

Mod powers outgoing!

Villichora said...

Alrighty, thanks Fabi :)

Villichora said...

I have an idea/strategy that might work, but I need the cooperation of all the cops. I have no idea if it'll work, but I'll say it once Dugglyn and Gemma comment, I guess.

Villichora said...

Wait, Fabi, are we told what Snow's role was?

Hamlet, Prince of Denmark | Moss Elsinore Cryptic | Fabi S. said...

Mod powers incoming!

Just that she was a cop, not which specific one, sorry.

Mod powers outgoing!

Villichora said...

Damn that makes it so much harder

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

I investigated Snow too. Weird how we both picked Snow first, Jai xD maybe we just think Snow is the murdering kind.
I got unsuspicious for Snow. So i'm either regular or naive.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Snow D:

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Soy, had to get ready for school.

So I investigated El and got Unsuspicious.
So I'd be regular, naive or insane.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

So.
What we know is that Snow isn't the killer.

And.. That is basically it.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

This is so scary 0.0

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

Duggy you could be regular too.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

I think we should all investigate the same person when night comes again.
I don't think voting is wise with so little information.. Even with our limited time.. Idk.. Voting could mean we win or it could mean we just make it easier for the Mafia person to kill us quicker..

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

Ok guys we have to know what Snow investigated last night. Then we can possibly tell what kind of cop she is? and elleni won't tell us what her investigation was.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

She might have a valid reasons for why..

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

That sounds good.

Who should we all investigate?

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

We all have to agree on someone.
Obviously the person being investigated can't investigate themselves..
Who do you think should be investigated? Me, you, gem or El?

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

I'm thinking El just because she didn't say what her investigation was?
Although maybe she just wants us to think that she's the killer so we waste our time. But why would she do that because then she'd die.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

El does seem kinda suspicious

But idk because she seems to have some knowledge of playing this like we are and so she'd probably think it sounded too suspicious...

Idkkkk

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

It's so difficult, isn't it? we'll be down to 3 people tomorrow.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Oh dear!

I hope I survive >.<

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

Welp, you're probably not going to survive as a cop.

Villichora said...

I think I know who the mafia is actually... but to convince all of you, you'd have to trust me

Villichora said...

Actually no, I've narrowed it down to two, but that's it.

Villichora said...

And I have theories but no hard evidence lol
I love these kinds of games I have a digital sticky note up rn and I'm writing stuff lol

Villichora said...

I'm bored and I don't know what to do someone pls respond lol

Hamlet, Prince of Denmark | Moss Elsinore Cryptic | Fabi S. said...

I'm here, but I'm also not playing the game. :-P

Villichora said...

Awwwwww :P

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Have we decided if we want to hang someone or skip?

Villichora said...

I don't suggest hanging someone just yet, but we shouldn't skip the day. I have ideas. And theories. And all that. Lol.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Okay :)

Villichora said...

Ok if I explain my whole theory today, we'd probably have to lynch the person I suggest because it means the mafia would want to kill me

I mean they probably already want to kill me anyway tbh

Villichora said...

Shoot, we only have til 1 PM tomorrow, which means I'll still be in school. Okay okay I really want to lynch someone because I have a pretty strong feeling about this

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

*is really curious!*
*has no clue because limited clues >.<*

Villichora said...

Should I share
I don't know
Nnnngawiohg

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

If you're going to do it you'll need to do it soon. I'm away to sleep. Night guys.

Villichora said...

Alright I'm gonna say it

I investigated Silente and I got not suspicious. I'm either Naive, Regular, or Insane, and that doesn't help much.
If Sil is lying, I'm Insane. If she's not, Gemma or Dugglyn is lying, because there can't be three naive/regulars. Snow was most likely paranoid because of probability reasons that I calculated.

I am not very suspicious of Silente, because she was the first one to comment and share her findings. Someone who's the mafia would've most likely waited until a real cop shared something so they can join and "fit in."

So that leaves Gemma and Dugglyn. I thought for a while, and I don't have any evidence to back this one up, but I'm guessing it's Gemma.

Gemma claimed to have investigated Snow and received an NS (not suspicious). Dugglyn then claimed to have investigated me and also said she got NS. Now, with just this information, it would be impossible to tell. But when Gemma said she investigated Snow, she gave two justifications as to why she and Sil could've possibly picked Snow on the same night. Why would she do that? Anyone could've picked anyone, but she felt the need to give more tan one reason as to why they both chose to investigate Snow.
Maybe it was small talk, but in a mystery game like this, everyone single word is important to me.

Or maybe I'm just Insane. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Anyways, now that I've said this, if Gemma is the mafia, she probably wants to kill me. So I vote Gemma

Villichora said...

Oh, and if we don't get enough votes by tomorrow, then I have a plan.

If you all believe me, then I propose that I and Dugglyn investigate Gemma, and Silente and Gemma investigate Dugglyn. I tried multiple combinations by drawing diagrams, and I think this will be the most effective. I don't know though.

Again, I'm Naive, Regular, or Insane. If I'm Naive/Regular, Gemma or Dugglyn is lying. If I'm Insane, Sil is lying. Probability wise, there's a 66% chance of Gemma or Dugglyn being the mafia and 33% chance of Sil being the mafia, which is why I'm proposing to investigate those two.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

*looks up at Elleni being smart*
wow.
okay well that all makes sense
so

vote Gemma

*hopes it's Gemma!*

Villichora said...

Thanks Dugg :3

Villichora said...

Oh Fabi, does Gemma die and the day end as soon as we get 3 votes, or does Gemma get a chance to defend herself?

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

El your smartness hurts.
*hesitant to kill anyone yet with such little evidence.. The points made were good but.. If well is u using manipulation by way of complication and justification then that just means we'll be down to two cops, then the Mafia will strike and we'll essentially lose as only one cop will remain with the Mafia, at which point they'll know who the Mafia is..*

Hmmm..

Hamlet, Prince of Denmark | Moss Elsinore Cryptic | Fabi S. said...

Mod powers incoming!

She gets a chance to defend herself if you let her. You can un vote and re-vote if you want to give her time, but once there are three votes for someone, that person has no escape.

...

That sounded rather grim, but it's true.

Mod-powers outgoing!

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Okay.
Gemma says she investigated snow. She hasn't framed anyone there. She could however be bidding her time or gaining our trust.
Duggy investigated El and got unsuspicious, again, framing no one except for where she added that she could be insane.
El investigated me and got unsuspicious, however she was the last to answer and clearly she's smart. She could be playing it to her advantage.
I investigated Snow and got suspicious, not framing anyone and narrowing down what type of cop I am to two categories instead of four.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Thanks Fabi!
I'll wait for Gem's reaction, see if she defends herself and then I'll maybe vote.

Villichora said...

I was reluctant to answer in the beginning, because in most Mafia games I've played, sharing your findings and roles is discouraged because the Mafia will want to kill you if they know what certain role you are, because that means you're dangerous to them. Then I realized that's useless in this game so :P

The Gemma thing is an intuition tbh. Just... the way she said it.
"Weird how we both picked Snow first, Jai xD maybe we just think Snow is the murdering kind."
It seemed odd. Tone and diction. She mentions your name, adds a "xD" face, and tries to justify why you both picked Snow, as if she's trying to fit in. To relate. To gain personal trust, especially with Jai. But does Gemma usually do stuff like small talk? I don't talk to her anymore so I wouldn't know.

Villichora said...

I guess maybe waiting another day might give us more information. My only worry is that since I'm the one giving out the most information and proposing the most theories, I would be the main target of the mafia, no matter who it is.

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

Um. No idea how i'm meant to "defend" myself here lol cause no matter what i say people will be suspicious of me. I'll just say that it's not me and if you kill me you'll be a cop down.

No idea who it is because i'm not smart like El. Still, guess she's not as smart as she thinks because she's killing the wrong person.

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

I'm thinking Duggy currently. Partly because of El's information and because she quickly jumped onto me being hanged -shrugs-

It would be easier if we knew snow's. Fabi can you tell us what she investigated since she doesn't seem to be coming on to comment?

Ace Pennman said...

*coughs*
I'm dead. you don't get my info
*coughs*

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

Nuuuu Snow tell us, don't you want to help the cop team win?

Ace Pennman said...

no, I mean that's literally the rules.

Once you're dead, you can't speak or tell anyone anything you know.

Ace Pennman said...

Because, y'know, you're dead

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

Ah. Damit.

Hamlet, Prince of Denmark | Moss Elsinore Cryptic | Fabi S. said...

Snow is correct.

Dead cops tell no lies, but they also can't tell the truth, because they're dead.

Technically, she's not supposed to be commenting here either, but I was asleep, so it's good that she clarified.

I could tell you who she investigated if I felt like giving you a hint, but it'd ruin the game unless I gave the cops and mafioso both equally valuable information. But it's easier and more fair if I don't give anyone extra info, sorry.

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

Aww ok Fabi. I understand.

Hamlet, Prince of Denmark | Moss Elsinore Cryptic | Fabi S. said...

Also, you have until 1PM Seattle time, which is 8PM GMT before the day ends.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

I don't know what to do >.<
If El is wrong we're one cop down.
If El is right then no one has to die the next night.
But but but ugnnnn. Confuzzed >-<

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

Well i doubt el and duggy will change their answers. I don't think you're the killer sil cause you would have been really glad for me to get hung. Or maybe you're just hesitating for effect, But yeah.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

I know they won't change their answers. Which is why this is harder cause I've been given the bloomin deciding vote..
Okay, okay. There has to be a logical way to work this out from my POV..

Villichora said...

Gemma's right; I didn't even think about that. It's not Sil because if she was mafia, she would've jumped in and vote immediately.

There is literally no completely logical way to solve this. We have to trust dumb luck and intuition. :P There's not enough clues to make out a 100% certain conclusion.

And I would really appreciate if people didn't throw shade around here like srsly

Villichora said...

Hm, now that I think about it, it could Dugg. She jumped onto the bandwagon a lot faster than I thought she would.

Villichora said...

unvote Gemma

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

But logic is so much nicer than dumb luck..

I don't think I'll vote. Right now I can't discount anyone and that hurts my head. Whoever dies tonight might help more with deciding who the killer is.

But.. Why snow?

Villichora said...

Logic isn't possible yet

I think it's better that Snow died than anyone else (SORRY SNOW ;_;) because I'm pretty sure she's paranoid, and her role wouldn't have helped us

I think it might be helpful if we investigated one more night
Has everyone agreed to do the thing? I and Dugg invest Gem, Gem and Sil invest Dugg?

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

I'll investigate Dug, sure.


Unless Snow wasn't paranoid and I'm the paranoid one.

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

I'm fine with that because i;m pretty sure that it isn't sil and i know it's not me so it's dugg or El. And el is telling us to investigate dug or me so it might be her too.

Dun dun duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuunnnnnnnnnnnnn.

But yeah i'm up for investigating dug first.

Villichora said...

Cool cool

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

We've pointed the finger at everyone now bar me and Snow.

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

Well you commented first and you didn't want me to get hung. I think that is reason enough to not think it's you.

And el just took away her vote which makes me less suspicious because obviously the killer would want me to hang instead of them. But again she could just be doing it because it didn't seem like you were going to vote, Jai.

Hamlet, Prince of Denmark | Moss Elsinore Cryptic | Fabi S. said...

And me. How do you know that there aren't to normal cops and I'm not choosing the kills and sitting around laughing while y'all point fingers at each other?

(Jk, though I actually kinda want to do that now. :-P)

Hamlet, Prince of Denmark | Moss Elsinore Cryptic | Fabi S. said...

*two normal cops. Though there could be two naive cops instead. Wouldn't matter, 'cause everyone you'd think to investigate would be innocent. :-P

(Again, this is not actually a possibility)

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

That would be so cruel if you did that Fabi :P
I drew a little mind map thing. We literally can't be certain of who it is right now. Someone else is going to die tonight. it would be really helpful if me or dug died tonight as me and sil only have 2 cops we could be. either we think everyone is unsuspicious (me) or suspicious (Jai) and the person that has a different set of results is the mafia and we can kill them straight away whereas Elleni and Dugglyn still have 3 so they won't be able to tell who they are for a while.

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

We'll be able to catch the person tonight actually. Unless Jai is the mafia and she kills me. then the mafia will probably win. Unless elleni and dug get really lucky.
But yeah, if either me or jai survive tonight we'll catch whoever it is. If neither me or jai get a different set of results that means i'm niave and Jai is paranoid which means Elleni duggy or snow are insane or regular or the killer. If we do get different results tonight we win.
Or if we both get the same results it means it's elleni not dug. Or that we're Niave/paranoid of course. but then everyone else will be able to work out who they are.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Idk personally I still think it's Gemma.

Because I agree with the reasoning for Jai
And Elleni gave a ton of info and it seems unlikely it's her
And I know it's not me

So I still think Gemma.

That's why I replied so fast btw.
It makes sense.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Though Jai is the only person I'm not at all suspicious of. Because el didn't give any information about why it couldn't be her.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Y'all would be screwed if I actually was the Mafia xD I'm glad we've agreed not to hang anyone now, I was thinking about who it could be all day. It gave me another headache.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

So we're not going to hang anyone?

Should I unvote Gemma?

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Nope, no hanging.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Okay

unvote Gemma

Villichora said...

I have no idea what Gem just said

But you really shouldn't say "it would be helpful if [person] died"
Then the mafia would obviously not kill them -_-

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Mmm.

So, to reiterate, Dug and El investigate Gem.
Gem and me investigate Dug.

I'm slightly twitchy that El isn't being investigated..

What happens if it gets to a day and only one cop is left alive? Is it a case of "whoever votes first wins?" Or is it autoloss for the cops?

Villichora said...

Yes

Lol no
The mafia wins when the number of "townies" (cops) and the number of mafia are the same

Hamlet, Prince of Denmark | Moss Elsinore Cryptic | Fabi S. said...

If there are two people left, one vote isn't a majority, and the mafioso isn't gonna vote for themselves. Neither is the cop, for that matter. There's no hanging, and the next night the mafioso kills the cop. If that happens, I'll speed through it a bit because it's the only possible outcome.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Okay then.

Makes sense, thanks.

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

I was wondering that too, Jai.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

So basically we have to be ready to vote tomorrow or we lose, unless no one dies tonight.

Villichora said...

Someone is definitley going to die tonight

Villichora said...

PRobably me tbh lol

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

I dunno who it'll be actually.. Depends who the killer actually is.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Not long now till someone's demise.
But who's?

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

Find out in the next episode of: Blogland mafia

Villichora said...

Lmao

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Is it night?

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Ahh okay. Night starts 9pm GMT

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

She did say 8GMT

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

"Also, you have until 1PM Seattle time, which is 8PM GMT before the day ends."

Villichora said...

Yeah we have 40 minutes

Amy, Sarah, Aria (Gemma) said...

Yeah i just checked the Seattle time. Fabi must have got a little mixed up

Villichora said...

Huh? Wait I'm confused

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

That's cool :) Not her fault

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

It's 8:22 now

Hamlet, Prince of Denmark | Moss Elsinore Cryptic | Fabi S. said...

Google says it's 7:35 GMT???

But it says 8:35 if I search "time in UK," so I'll do that from this point on.

The night will probably not end promptly on time, as I'll either be on the bus or just have gotten home. Whenever this happens, you can keep talking, but votes after the official end time don't count.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Okay :)
We're 8 hours ahead, cause my 8am is the time I mentally scald Ellie for messaging me at because it's midnight for her and a school night.

Hamlet, Prince of Denmark | Moss Elsinore Cryptic | Fabi S. said...

*the night will probably not start promptly on time

OR

*the day will probably not end promptly on time

That was my mistake, not Google's. And yeah, I'm used to it being an 8 hour difference, but I was too tired to do math when I typed it up, so I asked Google and it said 7, and I just went with it. Sorry about that.

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

It's fine :)

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Night time

Villichora said...

Ok is it officially night now?

Villichora said...

Oh ok

Silente Tempest (Jai) - St Of Sinners said...

Yea it is El :)
