Welcome to Who's Mafia Is It Anyway? A game where the roles are made up and the flavor doesn't matter. Hosted by the The Honorable Thirdkoopa Thirdkoopa and the always pleasant smelling giraffelasergun giraffelasergun . Game is a thirteen player Semi-Open set up where town has 0-4 roles listed in the Role PM Spoiler tag and mafia has 0-2. Please take some time to read through the spoiler tags at your leisure.

01. Be kind to each other.
02. Do not edit your posts. Feel free to double post for corrections if necessary.
03. Vote in bold; you do not have to unvote to vote a new person. Please try to place your vote at the top or bottom of the post to help prevent mod errors.
04. Days will last for roughly 4 days, Nights will last for 24 hours. Day will end early if a majority vote is reached. If no majority has been reached by the end of day, the player with the most votes cast against them will be lynched. In the event of a tie, the player that gets to that number of votes first is lynched. There is no twilight phase.
05. You are allowed to vote for No Lynch.
06. Don't talk about the game outside of the thread unless your role says you can.
07. You can ask the mod questions in the thread with the command @(myname)
08. No hidden code and text and such. You can breadcrumb.
09. You can not post screenshots containing any private data, or reference any private data such as the time a PM was sent, etc. You can not directly quote any PMs from the mod or reference any pictures. Screenshots of personal notes are OK to post, as long as they contain no mod data.
10. No posting in the thread when you are dead, or during the night phase.
11. Prods will be issued for not posting for 24 hours. Three prods will get you replaced.
12. Failure to submit a night action will result in no action being taken.
The following is a list of roles that could be in this game.

can we nix the cop? imo the info gained is too strong for any player to have, and godfather as a neutralizer is pretty bad too (obv i dont know if gf is gonna be in the game yet cuz scum roles havent been posted yet but yea). if we wanna keep possible pr's at 6 i think something like a backup or bp or even inno child (the variant marshy had last game) would be straight. but cop is way too overcentralizing

Let me sit on this, do think a regular cop is a bit op, might try to find a fun town pr to put there instead, or maybe make it a limit shot.

some sites give cop a randomized innocent scan at their role pm which ive seen work well. doubles as a de facto safety net if they get clapped n1

a 1 or 2 shot cop (tho not the latter if above mechanic used) might b okay

it feels funny discussing roles and their viability again cuz there were some diverging views back in the day

o i also like gorfs idea of innocent child. another role is oracle which i put in the signup thread. then we have tracker which is prolly the best "clear someone" option behind inno child

could live without the cop altogether cuz it can b pretty unenjoyable for the scumteam to have to play thru, moreso than the above two. i was playing a game last year where i got a guilty and it cleared like 4 ppl off reactions alone

EDIT: for example say town has 3 prs with 1 cop. cop gets his scan off n1. d2 town can massclaim and potentially hav 4/8 townies clear. scum hav room to fakeclaim but its a gamble with no safeclaims

Changed Cop to Oracle. Removed Doctor, added Messenger. Changed Bodyguard to Tough Bodyguard(survives the kill until end of next day phase). Added mafia Rolecop, Roleblocker, and a one shot untrackable/pierce kill.

8 pm Central, tomorrow. (23.5 hours from this post)
Phases will be 4 days, but since Thursday is a US Holiday I'm thinking day 1 will be a bit longer, 5 days for now and if people think we need more time we can do six.
I'd like to say pregame that I have 4th of July plans for Thursday, but I might be able to still participate. I am going to a baseball game with my family, and slow innings will be fine for Mafia.
