Schedule: 38/10 with night at 8 or 9pm ET depending on my work schedule. Night 0 begins at 9:00pm Fri Sep 22. Day 1 begins at 7:00am Sat Sep 23. First lynch is Mon Sep 25 at 9pm ET.
13 young-looking men
--10 twenty-something straights
----Emissary - 1-588 - On n0, you are told the alignment of one other non-Mason Town player, randomly chosen.
----Cop - 589-1176 - Results are guaranteed reliable for all players.
------Starting n1, you may nightly investigate a player to learn his or her alignment.
------If you holster n1, you may on subsequent nights investigate a player to learn his or her alignment and role.
----Mean Jerk - 1177-1765 - Starting n1, you may nightly hide behind another player. If you are then targeted for devouring, the player you hid behind is devoured instead of you. If the player you hid behind is targeted for devouring, you both are devoured. This does not work against being "hit on." However, you are immune to the negative effects of any explosions that may happen near your person as a result of your nightly shenanigans.
----Pacific Mediator - 1766-2353 - Starting n1, you may nightly target another player to PROTECT or ROLEBLOCK if you had no vote against anyone at the immediately preceding EOD (“No Lynch” or abstain). You may not target the same player twice.
----Vigilante - 2354-2941 - Starting n1, you may nightly target another player for death. You may not target the same player twice.
----DNA Analyst - 2942-3529 - Starting d2, you may daily (by EOD) take a DNA sample from any un-lynched dead player of your choice, comparing it to the DNA of your choice of any other living or dead player to discover whether the latter’s DNA matches your sample. A match indicates you have found the killer. Format your action thus: “Gather from Alpha; compare to Beta.” The result will return at dawn: “Match” means Beta killed Alpha. “No match” means Beta did not kill Alpha.
----Command-Based Robot - 3530-4118 - You may daily (by EOD) select another player to have the power to perform a vig any night thereafter. That player will not know who gave it to him or her, nor how it got there.
You may not select the same player on consecutive days.
----Vanilla (3) - 4119-5882
--2 twenty-something gay masons (24/7 private chat) (both vanilla)
----Virgin - 5883-6471
----Tinder Grinder - 6472-7059
--1 forty-something (but fit) straight virgin (vanilla) - 7060-7647
3 forty-something cougars with 24/7 chat
--Inaccurate Flipper - 7648-8235 - When you die, you flip "Town" or "Town Power Role" (your choice, indicated daily by EOD). This flip is corrected exactly one cycle later. For example, if you are lynched, you are revealed as "Town" or "Town Power Role." The reveal would then be corrected at the next lynch. Or if you are killed at night, you are revealed that morning as "Town" or "Town Power Role," and corrected to Mafia the next morning.
--Wary Mary - 8236-8824 - May devour a man each night, inspecting him first to make sure he's fit for consumption. For example, "Inspect/Devour Player A" means inspecting Player A to ensure he is a suitable meal (and not the kind that devolves into ennui or explosions) before devouring him. If the meal is not suitable, it's as if Player A was never even visited.
--Serial Monogamist - 8825-9412 - May devour a man each night.
If a cougar devours a
--twentysomething straight, that man dies (yum yum for cougar!).
--twentysomething gay, the gay and the cougar both explode (KABOOM!).
--fortysomething (but fit) straight virgin, the cougar must post vomit-related lolcats all day long the next day (or nothing at all), with the last post permitted to contain whatever the cougar wants it to contain (including a vote), then dying of yucky oldness a moment after the lynch. Caveat: The last post may not also be the first post.
--Neutral Daddy Bear, it results in absolutely nothing at all for either party but bitter ennui (target not notified).
1 forty-something (but fit) Neutral Daddy Bear - 9413-10000 - You are a grocery-store hookup artist, trying to snag the young men but navigating the treacherous differentiation process between straight and gay. You've become quite good at it. On n1, you may investigate two players to learn whether those players are the twentysomething gay mason virgin, the fortysomething straight virgin, or neither of those. On n2 onward, you may similarly investigate one player nightly. You may daily (by EOD) hit on one player. If you hit on
--a twentysomething straight or a fortysomething cougar, nothing happens for either party but bitter ennui (target not notified).
--the twentysomething virgin, you exit the game victoriously, leaving that virgin deflowered and forlorn--his Tinder Grinder masonbro, who had mad unrequited love for the virgin, takes his own life in reaction.
--the twentysomething Tinder Grinder, you exit the game as a loser, having contracted numerous debilitating STIs from the Tinder Grinder, who gains an explosion-proof vest as a result.
--the fortysomething straight virgin, you both explode (KABOOM!).
Do your daily "hit on" by PMing the Mod, who will process it with the lynch.
The following players are eligible to win vests (immunizes against devouring and vigging):
--each of the 3 vanilla town twentysomething straights
--each of the 3 mafia
--the Daddy Bear
All 7 of those players gravitate toward 0.5 vests each, except the Daddy Bear, who gravitates toward 1.25 vests:
--Probability of the player having X number of vests for all except Daddy Bear (poisson distribution):
----0 vests = 60.65%
----1 vest = 30.33%
----2 vests = 7.58%
----3 vests = 1.26%
----4 vests = 0.16% (1 in 625)
----5 vests = 0.02% (1 in 5,000)
--Probability for Daddy Bear:
----0 vests = 28.65%
----1 vest = 35.81%
----2 vests = 22.38%
----3 vests = 9.33%
----4 vests = 2.91%
----5 vests = 0.92% (1 in 109)
The Town wins when the only players alive are Town.
The Mafia wins when the Neutral is dead and parity with the twentysomething straights in the Town (not parity with all Town) is achieved.
The Neutral Daddy Bear wins when he beds the twentysomething virgin.
The Neutral may win with Town or Mafia.
At death, the following information is revealed:
--The Cop, the Emissary, and the Daddy Bear are fully revealed (alignment and role). The Emissary's peek is part of his or her role, and so will be revealed at death, unlike the reveal of the Cop.
--The Mean Jerk, Pacific Mediator, Vigilante, DNA Analyst, and Command-Based Robot each reveals only as "Town Power Role."
--All other players will have only their alignment revealed.
No ITAs; no broken mechanics; no conversion; no Mod lies; a tied lynch is randed. Day never ends early.
Anti-Claim Mechanic: The Mafia may submit up to two names and roles nightly. If the submission matches exactly, the name(s) on the list die. Otherwise, a Mafia dies, chosen randomly between the Serial Monogamist and Wary Mary. If both of those are already dead, then the Inaccurate Flipper would die.
All night actions must be submitted via private message; your first submission is binding. I will enforce this strictly in this game unlike past games.
Be nice, or you will get the John Goodman treatment. You definitely don't want this:
By signing up, you promise to make at least 15 substantive posts each day phase (including at least 2 substantive posts within the first 46 hours of d1), or you will be modkilled unless a substitute is available before the night action deadline.

It is night. Do not post.
