Zoo Mafia-End-The Evil Penguin is Dead!

Postby Silknor » Sat Nov 06, 2010 3:01 am UTC

Day 7 has begun.
Mods: Silknor and ElectricHaze. Include us on all PMs.


The year was 2047. Twenty two years after the accidental detonation of seven nuclear weapons. And two years after the elimination of the Zombies in the 20 Years War. That's right, this is a post-apocalyptic Mafia game. But that doesn't matter too much.

What matters is that it's been more than a year since a human (of which there are less than a million remaining) set foot inside ZooKCD, the massive Zoo on the premises of the Kansas College of Dinosaurs. And by now the food supplies are running low, and no cage remains intact.

A small group of warriors with great initiative banded together to launch a first strike. Together they took down some of the biggest eaters: the giraffe, the elephant, and the cloned Woolly Mammoth. Without any easy way of identifying these warriors, the best animal minds in the Zoo got together to determine a plan of action. But...they're animals. Not the most creative or analytical creatures. So they just copied the rough outlines of a structure they had heard rumors of in their oral histories, passed down over the generations (22 years is a lot to some of these creatures!). They copied the lynch mob.

And so they gathered in the pen of the long escaped T-Rex, where they assembled into a circle, sat down on their tables, aim their heads straight up, and began the discussion. They might've misremembered a few of the details.


Enjoying your Visit to ZooKCD:

There is a single Mafia team.
There is no cult.
One role, while not strictly speaking a bastard role, has some definite bastardly characteristics. If they die, you'll be told it was them. They do have a fixed set of rules without any randomness, but they're sufficiently outside the mainstream that I wanted to give a heads up.

Player List:
Spoiler:
-3. Lataro
-2. Elvish Pillager (one-up on Lataro! neener-neener-neener)
-1. Misnomer (I'm not caged in here with you... you're caged in here with me!)

1. Krong (is intrigued)
2. mpolo (after the utter failure in the last turbo, I need redemption)
2.718281828 Martin (I never said I'll be back. Ah well, back in any case)
3. existential_elevator
π. RoadieRich (RoadieRich = R squared)
3.333.... djkjr (rawr?)
4. _infina_ (maybe I can handle 1 game right now.)
5. greenlover (I never really did anything last turbo, soooo)
6. ForAllOfThis (two by two...)
7. ahippo
7.5 weiyaoli
8. Mavketl (gone Nov 13 - Nov 16)
9. roband (there's no limit to player numbers, right?)
777. Brooklynxman (not really 777)
134. Dr Ug (moo).
1337. rrwoods (woof)
SQR(-1) BigNose (You decide where it goes)

You can signup here or in the signup thread. I'll keep them synchronized.

You can expect more details soon, I was expecting a bit more time before starting signups, but the previous game ended quickly. Big flavor incoming. I may be interested in a co-mod, depends on signups.

Silknor's First Closed Forum Game Signups

Turbo. Closed. Signup now! I may be interested in a co-mod, depending on number of signups.


Extensive flavor will be present. It won't be bastard, but may draw on some unusual roles.

I can now add a bit of extra information:
Starting time: Monday night EST (30ish hours from now)
I can only guarantee you get your animal if you sign up at least 6 hours before that.

There's no cap on player count to answer a question I got earlier.

The year was 2047. Twenty two years after the accidental detonation of seven nuclear weapons. And two years after the elimination of the Zombies in the 20 Years War. That's right, this is a post-apocalyptic Mafia game. But that doesn't matter too much.

What matters is that it's been more than a year since a human (of which there are less than a million remaining) set foot inside ZooKCD, the massive Zoo on the premises of the Kansas College of Dinosaurs. And by now the food supplies are running low, and no cage remains intact.

A small group of warriors with great initiative banded together to launch a first strike. Together they took down some of the biggest eaters: the giraffe, the elephant, and the cloned Woolly Mammoth. Without any easy way of identifying these warriors, the best animal minds in the Zoo got together to determine a plan of action. But...they're animals. Not the most creative or analytical creatures. So they just copied the rough outlines of a structure they had heard rumors of in their oral histories, passed down over the generations (22 years is a lot to some of these creatures!). They copied the lynch mob.

And so they gathered in the pen of the long escaped T-Rex, where they assembled into a circle, sat down on their tables, aim their heads straight up, and began the discussion. They might've misremembered a few of the details.

The flavor seems to imply that the scum took out these three animals, attacked them. Keep in mind, just because you are copped as one of these animals, I'm not going to assume whether you are town or not.

On another note, I will be said if a hippo didn't chose a hippo.

There's only one of each animal, right? I'd be surprised then (and a little suspicious) if anybody claimed any of the animals that we've been told are already dead.

I know we're in a fairly big ole game, but I still get uncomfortable when people put votes in so soon. Especially poorly explained votes thinly disguised as "discussion" votes. I mean, we haven't all confirmed yet. How do we even know that Lataro is playing and hasn't been carried off by a large, marauding badger?

Well, if you'd been paying attention, you'd know that multiple sub-species are allowed. Ergo we could have a Reticulated Giraffe and a Kordofan Giraffe but it may be that the Rothschild Giraffe is indeed, our resident ex-giraffe. It really depends on how much information people will give with a claim, and indeed, how much information we'd actually get out of that. I mean, you could be a Rothschild Giraffe and I'm not really sure what I'd want to guess about your role on the basis of that.

This should be understood more as a joke vote / meta-frustration vote. Not even a discussion vote, really, as it had no basis at all. If you'd like, I can take the vote off.

Unvote: Lataro

There.

As I understand the opening flavor, the mafia is a group trying to ration the food, and which killed off the three biggest eaters during N0. There is no real reason to think that these "big eaters" have a special relationship with the mafia. I would tend to think that the mafia will either be a few who have selected similar species or maybe species that are known for storing up food or the like. Of course it could be something simple like carnivores/herbivores, too…

I'm here. And ready to play.

Speculation about roles is pretty much pointless and there are lots of people in this game, so the fact it's turbo (presuming people post accordingly) could be interesting

Okay, I'm here, and ready to go. I do believe this game will be interesting.

As it stands, I really think that we should postpone scum hunting until everyone has confirmed. Also, I don't think that trying to figure out what animals are in the game is going to be very helpful, simply because its our spec'ing abilities against the imagination of. every. player. From that, I think it is a failed cause. Also, powers and alignment are not necessarily linked to role name.

Roles almsot certainly in this game:
Invisible Pink Unicorn
T-rex
Narwhal

Anyone care to disagree?
We figure out what all this means, then do something large and violent

I would disagree with this, simply because they would then have NO reason to fight over food.

OP wrote:A small group of warriors with great initiative banded together to launch a first strike.
Is this referring to humans, or am I looking into this too much?

I would venture to disagree with your assumption that there is a tyrannosaurus in this locality: the opening flavour says our ferocious erstwhile companion has heretofore vacated the enclosure in which we currently sojourn.

My inquisitiveness is currently directed towards the emotional sentiments our accomplished moderators necessitated when we enlisted in this game. It is my intention to encourage discourse on this subject.

I have been ninja'd, I will respond to that at a later point in time: I must presently prepare myself to depart for University.

Make sure you send all PMs to both EH and myself.

Oh Happy Day, it is Day 1. Pure bliss this is, 11 of us needed to lynch.

So, we probably have cats and dogs of some sort, as well as some aquatic creatures, most of which I would expect to be pro-town, if not town. More later when I am awake.

Care to explain your reasoning?

I'm mobile posting so I'll keep it brief & blunt. Role spec is no use, though I have a flavour theory to be explained later. Meanwhile, the big thing we don't know is the set up. Are we playing against cult, sks, mafia, etc. It would be good to know if anyone has a hunch.

Also the game being in the future may mean something, too?

I watch you, posting anaylsis and leading bandwagons so sweet
maybe we should go out for dinner sometime-my treat?
...
And you attack them-placing your votes near and far
I've been loving you-and I always are

And though now thou speakth of the finest rolespec, which I love
you could have picked any animal-even a dove

turbo is not a place for lurking, you know
so lets get moving, lets get posting-heave ho!

and while I know everyone's a suspect
I hope you can see, that you should love me, it seems
maybe together we'll post some more role-spec
and together we'll make
a great mafia team.

I ask that question about every player in every game...Yeah, I might have a minor issue with fear of badgers...

Anyway! I did intend to give some basic information about the game. I just was falling asleep by the time the last of the role PMs went up and the flavor was started. So here goes (I'll edit this and any future information like it into the first post for easy reference):

Enjoying your Visit to ZooKCD:

There is a single Mafia team.
There is no cult.
One role, while not strictly speaking a bastard role, has some definite bastardly characteristics. If they die, you'll be told it was them. They do have a fixed set of rules without any randomness, but they're sufficiently outside the mainstream that I wanted to give a heads up.
