Kolko is CoMod!

Da Rules:

-Mafia is a simple game. Each day the players discuss in the thread about all things pertaining to the game. The day ends when a lynch of 50% + 1 of the remaining players are all voting for the same person. To vote for a person place it in bold on it's own separate line. Like so:

Bulvox wrote:Azrael001 is obviously scum.

Vote: Azrael001


-If you decide that a person is no longer lynch-worthy you may unvote:

Bulvox wrote:Nah totally kidding about Az...
unvote


-As stated above. When half + 1 of the players are voting for the same person the Day will end Instantly and that person will be lynched.

1) Do not discuss this game outside of this thread.
2) If you must talk about something awesome you did. Please post in the Discussion thread with all game related material in a
Spoiler:
Spoiler Tag
with it clearly marked as pertaining to this game.
3) Don't read any spoilers that you didn't post or that I don't give you permission to read.
4) DO NOT EDIT YOUR POSTS. You have been warned.
5) When it is night, try not to post in the thread, especially if it is game relevant.
6) If you are lynched DO NOT post anything beyond "ack, you got me" or something like that.
7) Try to keep all posts game relevant.
8) You CANNOT communicate with anyone in this game about this game outside of this thread. Unless told otherwise by me. (I'm keeping the cool guy there. He earned it)
9) Post all questions to me in bold so I don't miss them.
10) You may NOT directly quote from any Mod PMs
11) MOST IMPORTANT of all! Have Fun! It's a game! If you aren't having fun for any reason other than not liking your role please let me know and I will try to help make it more fun.

Other Important Things:

-Don't think that you can get away with a cheap win by having everyone Role Claim. Rest assured I have put measures into this game Role-wise that will ensure that things will go badly for you.

- This is a Newbie Round. It is assumed that you have no clue what to do. There are a few experienced players in this game who can help explain things in thread. You may also PM me or Kolko with questions. Also, if you need some more in-depth guidance I can hook you up with an experienced person who isn't playing in this game. You can PM them with questions about the game. They won't be able to tell you "hey, vote for this person" but they can give you advice on how to approach your role.

Win Conditions:

Town- You win when all Anti-Town factions are eliminated.
Survivor- You win if you are alive at the end of the game, regardless of what side wins.
Jester- You win when you get yourself lynched.
Lyncher- You win when you get your target lynched.
Serial Killer- You win when you kill everyone else.

Dramatis Personae:

Al Capone
Famed leader of the South Side Chicago Outfit. No tears shed over the loss of Madame
Clio from this hardened crook. In fact, a twisted smile has adorned Capone's face since he
heard the news. This could be a BIG opportuinity for his Chicago Outfit to finally
take full control over his city. A chance to wipe out the leaders of the North Side
Gang is too good to pass up. And walking out of this one-horse town with the Madame's
fortune would just be icing on the cake. These poor saps have no idea what they've
gotten themselves into...


Beau Stafford
High School sweetheart of the lovely Miss Molly Creighton. Works hard as a construction
worker to provide for his dearest Molly. Beau doesn't make much money, but it's enough.
Even splitting the money 7 ways would be more than enough to give Molly the wedding she
deserves. It would also allow Beau to get a job less physically and time demanding while
still living comfortably with the woman he loves. Beau would do anything for Molly and has
often said that he would "die without her"...


Colin Aames
Younger brother of Madame Aames. Spent most of his life under the shadow of his
overly aggressive sister. Became more and more reserved and cautious as he aged
eventually becoming estranged from his own family just to get away from Madame
Aames. Fled to Twin Bridges when he turned 16 and lived a quiet life there until
his long lost sister showed up. Once again cast under her watchful eye Colin has
all but become a shut-in, rarely venturing out even into the small community
surrounding him. Some say he is the one who sold out his sister's location in
order to be finally rid of her. Those who know him better know this to be
impossible. Colin's only aim in life was to keep to himself and to survive. It
is rumored that he never sleeps...


Detective Paul I. Gardens
Paul I. Gardens doesn't know the meaning of the word irony. But that doesn't keep
him from being a great police officer. Det. Gardens loves Twin Bridges, and will
do anything under his jurisdiction to protect the law-abiding citizens that make
up his community. Despite being a small-town cop Det. Gardens is extremely level-
headed and fair. Age, Race and Creed mean very little him. There are two type of
people in Det. Gardens' world. Those who follow the law, and those who don't. If
you are in the latter group, you do not want to get in Paul I. Gardens way...


Doctor Young
Dr. Young's list of achievements seem to go on forever. High School Valedictorian,
first in her class at UCLA Med, published to all of the most prestigious medical
journals before she turned 20. None of these stack up to her desire to help the
sick. This is why she passsed up offers from hospitals in every major city across
the globe in preference of opening up a private practice in the small town of
Twin Bridges, Montana. Passing through she noticed that the town physician was also
the town Vet, and much better suited for the latter than the former. Since that day
it has been her duty to heal the people of Twin Bridges...


Earl "Hymie" Weiss
Earl Wojciechowski dropped his Polish name and picked up a Jewish one. In doing
so be became one of the most dangerous men in Chicago. The rage of losing his
longtime friend and former leader Dean O'Banion still burns strong within Hymie's
soul. If he still has one at least. He will not rest until he gets back what he
believes to belong to himself, and more importantly, to his long lost friend.
Hymie is a master of deception. Despite having a Jewish moniker he is actually
quite Catholic...


George "Bugs" Moran
Born Adelard Cunin, Bugs found good reasons to change his name at an early age.
Being incarcerated three times before your 21st birthday will give a guy a
reputation. Needless to say Bugs lives up to his nickname...with gusto. It takes
Hymie all his power to keep this powder-keg of rage under control. But keeping
a man like Bugs under lockdown is not only impossible, but a waste of a great
killing talent. It is almost assured that during their stay Hymie will throw
Bugs "one"...


Miss Allens
Classic small town story. Was born in Twin Bridges; grew up in Twin Bridges;
currently lives in Twin Bridges. And now it is very likely she will die in Twin
Bridges. She has never left her little town, except for that one time when she
attended her Cousin's wedding in Chinook. But she didn't much care for "those Big
City People". She lives a mostly quiet life, alone in her house with her pet
Pronghorn, Liam. Do not let this description fool you, Miss Allens is quite the
busy-body. She can tell you the goings on of just about every citizen to live in
Twin Bridges in the past 30 years. All of these strangers will surely have Miss
Allens working overtime...


Molly Creighton
High School Sweetheart of Beau Stafford. The two are inseperable. Was recently proposed
to and aims to live the rest of her life by the side of the man she loves. Winning the
money would buy the two the wedding (and honeymoon) of their dreams, as well as secure
them financially for life. She claims that she would not be able to go on living without
her Beau...


Professor Bautlekar
One would think that having an unfortunate last name would be enough for one child growing
up. But no! Professor B. (as he prefers to be called by his students) decided to become a
man of Science. Running experiments and building contraptions that explain the world around
him is his passion. His profession, Community College Professor. If he could win this money
Professor B. could give up teaching for good and pursue his goals of unlocking the secrets
of the Universe! Oh by the way, it's pronounced Bot-Leh-Car...


Vincent "The Schemer" Drucci
Born Vincenzo D'Ambrosio in Caltagirone, Sicily, The Schemer is the quitisential
mobster. Bank heists, kidnappings, The Schemer does it all. And he does it all without
question. What's good for the North Siders is good for the Schemer. That's why The Schemer
is Hymie's go to guy. He'll be sure to see a lot of action over the next few days...


Walter Hudgins
Former Officer of the Law for the quiet town of Twin Bridges. His mental capacity
has sharply declined due to a combination of old age and lack of proper police work.
It eventually led to a horrific tradgey including the accidental crippling of Twin
Bridges' claim to fame; rodeo champion Benny Reynolds. Walter was subsequently
stripped of his badge and became a social pariah. Due to his ever worsening
senility Walter relizes none of this and still roams the streets of Twin Bridges
looking for his elusive criminal. Perhaps this is finally his chance...

The Legend of Mafia Manor: A Newbie Mafia

Nestled in the mountainous backwoods of Southwest Montana lies the peaceful town of Twin Bridges. With its lush pine wood forests and charming (but quaint) downtown, Twin Bridges is truly a place one would go to "get away from it all."

And that is exactly what Clio Aames had intended to do when she arrived in Twin Bridges some 30 years prior. Having grown up on Clark Street in the heart of Chicago in the 1910s, Clio had seen (and done) it all. Life was hard for Clio, but she became harder, eventually joining up with the North Siders. Shaking down newsstand owners, bribing politicians, she did it all. She quickly rose through the ranks and was eventually dubbed
"Madame Aames" by the Chicago Media. She became feared by man and woman alike. And with this growing fear so grew the Madame's lust for power. On November 10th 1924, this lust reared it's ugly head. Madame Aames conspired with long time rival John "Johnny The Fox" Torrio and his Chicago Outfit to assassinate co-founder and leader of the North Siders, Dean O'Banion. With O'Banion out of the way, Madame Aames moved in as the head of the North Side family Gang. But she wasn't done there. No. Madame Aames would not be satisfied until she controlled all of Chicago. Ten weeks later, Madame Aames ordered the hit on Johnny the Fox.

The assassination attempt ultimately failed and The Fox survived. Before retiring to Italy he called both his Chicago Outfit and the North Siders together to tell of the betrayals of Madame Aames. The North Siders, now lead by Earl "Hymie" Weiss swore revenge. But it was too late, Madame Aames, along with $5,000,000 of the North Sider's cash was long gone. Never to be seen again, or so she hoped...

Fast-forward to November 10th, 1954. 30 years to the day since the assassination of Dean O'Banion. In a quiet and secluded town in Southwest Montana there sits a dark and quiet Mansion on the Hill. Suddenly a blood curdling scream rings out! The next moment, a shot is fired! Then. Silence returns. In the morning, the gardener finds a body in a pool of blood. Madame Aames is dead.

72 hours later 12 cars pull up the driveway of the Mansion on the Hill. The funeral procession for Madame Aames has reached its destination. A single occupant exits each vehicle. Most are strangers, not knowing any of the people, others are well acquainted with some of their fellow guests, but do not dare let on. The setting Sun casts a strange and forboding glow upon the Mansion on the Hill as the guests head towards its ornate front doors.

One by one, the guests enter the sad and lonely Mansion on the Hill walk through it's spacious halls, file into the Parlor located in the East Wing, and each take a seat, waiting for Madame Aames' final will and testament to be read. They wait five minutes, five minutes slowly turned into 15, 15 to 30. Eventually the sun finally sets. The guests are left in near darkness. The only source of light are the 13 candles set up at the front of the room. The guests become restless, but none dare to speak, as if some sort of invisible force is silencing them.

Suddenly! A strange light appears in front of the guests! Floating in the middle of the air, it continues to grow ever larger and brighter until it seems to fill the entire room. Abuptly it fades, for a brief moment the guests are too stunned to notice the apparition floating in front of them.

The late Madame Clio, looking as tough as ever hovered just above the ground, looking over her guests with a knowing, judging look. Clearing some sort of spectral phlem from her throat, she began to speak:


Madame Aames wrote:Welcome my dear guests, to my home. As some of you probably already knew, you are not here for a simple funeral. No, you are here to play a game. For
the victors, all of my riches. For the less fortunate, a price must be paid to me. Your life.


Some guests stirred in their seats, clearly disturbed by Madame Clio's words. A few had perked up at the mention of the fortune to be won.

Madame Aames wrote:I am sure most of you are feeling...less than enthusiastic about the possibility of losing your life. But, let me assure you that I care not for the plights of the living. You thought I was a hard-ass alive? You have no idea. For those of you eyeing the door, you will find escape to be quite impossible. Even if you were able to leave, you would not find the world as you know it outside of these walls. Welcome to my purgatory. Your only escape is to play my game. If you survive, you win and will exit this house to find that exactly one hour has passed in the world outside since you have entered.

Here are the rules. At sundown each night you must bring me one person. This person will be lynched and ultimately will join me in the after-life. How will you decide on who gets lynched? That is entirely up to you. Let me warn you that while you all think you are strangers, you are in fact broken up into different factions. Some of my old friends have joined us, and let me assure you, they will do all they can to make sure they leave here with my money. But do not worry, you are not without your own champions, while it is ultimately up to each of you individually to determine your own fate, you will find out in time just how useful your fellow players can be, or perhaps how deadly. Good luck.


And with that Madame Clio was gone. One by one each candle suddenly snuffed itself out until only the middle one remained lit. It lingered lit for a moment, and with a *puff* it too went out.

Being night already, the 12 guests took leave to their respective rooms. Tomorrow the game would begin...


I have posted Rules, Win Conditions, Role Descriptions and other things in the first two posts. PLEASE read them. You are responsible for knowing all of it. There will be a quiz. I will let you know if I make changes to the rules.

Also, please confirm in thread once you get your role.
