April Fool’s No ITA/Bastard Large Game:
Who Killed Roger Rabbit?Hosted By: @Goofy, @Phighter, @Arapocalypse
Start Date: Monday, April 1st
SOD/EOD: 7am EST/7pm EST
Phase Lengths: 12/12, night actions due by 5am EST
Mechanics: Deadline lynch, no maj, until the game loses half of its players, each lynch will have the TWO people with the most votes die. In the case of a tie at the deadline, the lynch will be randomized between the tied parties, only two parties will die. No lynch is a valid vote. No locked votes at LYLO. Any players that PM the account Goofy with the four colors mentioned in this post will receive a non-insignificant bonus. Alt play is encouraged but very much not mandatory to fit into the flavor, and all alts will be outed in the player post (so if you hate playing the game of discovering alts, need not worry).
Night Chat: Thread will be locked, nontown will have appropriate Discords/private chats to chat
Out of Thread Communication: Anything nontown will have standard Discord/private chats
Posting Requirement: 15 POSTS. IF YOU DO NOT MEET THIS, YOU WILL BE SUBBED OUT.
Posting LIMIT: 200 POSTS. IF YOU MEET THIS, GET AN ADDITIONAL HOBBY - lifts one hour before EoD!
Setup: Semi-open -- expect some April Foolery as everyone will know all roles
Secret Good Guys vs. Secret Bad Guys is a long phase game will be on day 1 when this game starts, and there's a good chance it'll still be on day 1 when this game ends! The only EoD which might coincide with this game's is its EoD 1, which would be two hours after this game's EoD!!!
Second Annual Bastard Mash will be on day 8 if it is still running (unlikely) by the time this game starts! It is 12/12 and its EoDs are two hours after this game's EoDs!!
New Player Light+ 13er will begin at the same time as this game's! However, New Player Light is 36/12 and, on days when its EoDs are on the same days as this game's, they are two hours after this game's EoDs!
Others to come!
75 years after the events of the first film (Who Framed Roger Rabbit, one of the best movies to come out of the ‘80s), ToonTown is a bustling place. Mayor Roger Rabbit oversees the community of Toons, who have successfully integrated into both TV, movies, and even the Internet. Fair elections are held every four years, but Roger Rabbit always wins. Everyone loves him as a good and honest mayor, and in addition to his business expertise, he has done a great job of welcoming newer, modern digital and CGI cartoons into the town.

Welcome to Who Killed Roger Rabbit! I’m your host, Goofy (Phighter/Ara, mostly Phighter), and this game is being cohosted by the fantastic as always Arapocalypse. Get hype!!!
This game is inspired by my love for the ‘80s classic, but also one of my favorite holidays: April Fool’s!
Q: Does the flavor matter? Are roles flavor indicative?
You don’t have to watch the movie to get the game. This is inspired by it, but it’s not like people are going to rand Mafia Weasel or Town Jessica Rabbit here. There will be player names in the flavor, but that is NAI, that’s just me having a flair for dramatic storytelling. There may or may not be anti-claim mechanics in effect that are or are not MU-standard.
Q: What is this about alt play?
The World of ToonTown is filled with animated cartoon characters. In the ‘80s movie, it was ‘40s cartoons, but I imagine a 2019 ToonTown would also have animated characters from any of your favorite mediums. You are encouraged to sign up for this game and use your favorite animated character (first come, first serve) as an alt for this game, because it’ll help me with flavor. All alts will be outted from the first post on, so if you hate alts, ignore this. I’ve claimed Goofy, so sucks to be you if you love him, but you can go as like -- top of my head thoughts here -- Archer, Shrek, Hello Kitty, the characters from the LEGO Movie, Mickey Mouse, Snow White, Dragonball Z characters I don’t know, among others.
If you hate alts and just want to play as you, meet Bob up there. The whole concept of the movie is that he’s a real detective who hates cartoons. You can be the real you, that is 100% okay, I know that switching accounts on and off suuuucks.
General Game Questions:
Yes, but only all day long events that may affect night actions. All events, unless stated otherwise, come with a chance that one event participant dies.
F*** ITAs. KP will be high enough to end this definitely by roughly a week.
Q: How large will this game be?
As large as we can get. I will be inviting every community I know that plays mafia. 40 to run this game, 80 to play in double time, more than that because hell yeah let's do it.
Q: What’s with the 15-post minimum?
Ara and I are working our asses off. Respect our time.
Q: Did I see a post limit?
Yeah. I’m tired of the meta of MU being post a lot = town. This limit shouldn’t be a problem for 90% of you. I’m also trying to keep this game accessible for casual players as possible despite the size.
Q: What about my behavior?
Because other communities are invited and there will be players who are completely green to forum mafia, I’m asking y’all to really not be $#@!s here and to report any posts to mods and game hosts asap. I will punish more harshly than a standard host. It is your job to control yourself, and your team’s job to reign you in if you’re not controlling yourself.
Q: I received a PM that said my night action was processed.
Yes, you did.
Q: How helpful are hosts going to be this game?
In responding to problematic posters? Helpful. In helping you solve the game? Not. We reserve the right to answer any and all questions with “No Response’ to protect the spirit of the game. If you do not receive a response to a question, operate under the assumption it’s “No Response” until we either send that or send you an answer.
Q: Is this multi-ball? Are there third parties? Is this one of those games where everyone is mafia?
No Response, No Response, No!
Q: Are the flips going to be bastard?
No. All flips will identify roles and alignment correctly. There will be no godfathers or town millers.
Q: Do I have to worry about any of this first-post communication being incorrect on purpose?
No, that wouldn’t be fair. I see you rereading the rules on d4, put away the gray tinfoil.
Q: Is this role madness?
Yes! There will be no vanilla town or ITA specialists. I can not give everyone equally powered PRs, but we've been designing this game since January, so yes role madness.
Q: Is this going to be an unwinnable bastard game?
If you play to win, you should have a fair chance to win. If you play to have fun, you should have a fair chance to have fun. Essentially, the more effort you put in, the more likely your team is to win/have fun. Try to do both.
Q: How many people are you looking for? When do signups close?
Due to the nature of this set-up, we are looking for 40 or 80, and can do up to 200. Signups close Wednesday, March 20th so Ara and I can finish balancing the game. Subs will still and always be welcome to sign up, however!
Q: There’s another bastard/April Fool’s style game.
Yes, there is! You should sign up for that, Mantichora was a $#@!ing gentleman and let us have this slot I’ve been campaigning for for months. That’s over here: https://www.mafiauniverse.com/forums/threads/21449
Q: Can I vote to lynch the hosts?
Yes, but this has no effect.
Q: Can I reference this post later?
Go for it.
