It's not noon yet, but we now have 5 players, so I'm going to start the game. Anyone else who wants to join can join as a back-up player in case someone has to quit.
1) Silente Tempest
2) Dugglyn Carzainia
4) Snow Stormberg
5) Elleni (Villichora)
Roles: (subject to change with player number, currently shown for 5, as that's the minimum number of people needed)
2) Regular Cop
3) Naive Cop
4) Paranoid Cop
5) Insane Cop
Roles and players are matched randomly. The numbers are unrelated.
Here are the roles explained in more detail
Mafioso: Can kill one person each night. Goal is to avoid detection and kill everyone else.
Regular Cop: Can investigate one person each night. Receives a verdict of "suspicious" for the mafioso, "unsuspicious" for everyone else. Goal is to find and hang the mafioso.
Naive Cop: Can investigate one person each night. Receives a verdict of "unsuspicious" for everyone. Goal is to find and hang the mafioso.
Paranoid Cop: Can investigate one person each night. Receives a verdict of "suspicious" for everyone. Goal is to find and hang the mafioso.
Insane Cop: Can investigate one person each night. Receives a verdict of "unsuspicious" for the mafioso, "suspicious" for everyone else. Goal is to find and hang the mafioso.
The cops will only be told they are a cop. They will have to deduce which cop they are based off the results of their investigations.
The roles are being emailed out even as we speak, and comment moderation has been turned on.
IT IS NOW NIGHT 1
As soon as you receive your role, leave a comment below. The comment will not show up, but it will be visible to me. You will then have until Monday, April 25th at 9pm GMT to submit your night action (either kill or investigate someone, depending on your role). All you need to do is comment that person's name.
If you did not receive your role, email me (link in profile), and I'll send it again.
Additionally, the first rule of Mafia is that we don't talk about Mafia outside of the Mafia blog! Things like "hey dude, check my most recent post in Mafia" are okay, and you can always email Fabi the admin about the game, but anything else will be considered cheating. Absolutely no emailing people your roles or discussing strategy outside of the game. There's only one mafioso, so there won't be a night chat this game.
