    Season 6, Game 8: The Last Picture Show [The Mafia Championship]

    SEASON 6, GAME 8: THE LAST PICTURE SHOW (MAFIA CHAMPIONSHIP)



    Welcome to Season 6 of the Mafia Championship!

    An international forum-based tournament for Mafia players from 187 different communities

    Sponsored by Werewolf Online



    Hosted By: Our automated @Mafia Host w/ @Capage providing flavor
    Start Date: June 3*, 2019 (strictly speaking, June 4, 2019)
    Start of Day/End of Day: 12 AM EDT (05.00 UK time)
    Phase Lengths: 48/24
    Lynch Mechanics: Deadline Lynch (person with most votes is lynched at the end of the deadline). In case of a tie, one of the tied players will randomly be lynched. No lynch is a valid vote. Starting Day 2, Majority is enabled, meaning the players can end day early if someone attains a majority of the votes.
    Night Chat In Thread: No, thread will be locked during Night Phases
    Out of Thread Communication: Only the Mafia team may communicate with each other outside of the thread (24/7)
    LYLO Rules: Votes are automatically locked in at LYLO. I.e. when the game reaches a point where one more mislynch leads to a loss, you cannot change your vote once you have cast it.
    Minimum Posting Requirement: Minimum 10 posts per Game Day
    Maximum Posts Allowed: 175 posts per player per Game Day (restriction is lifted 2 hours before EOD though, so if you've reached your max you can post again at that time).
    ROLES
    13x Town
    4x Mafia


    Of the following 18 roles, 1 will randomly be discarded and the other 17 will be assigned at random to one player in the game without regard for the player's alignment. Each role is restricted to using its action only on the nights listed on the chart. The Mafia will be told which role is not present in the game.

    Role Acts On These Nights Modifier
    Watcher n1 Only Macho
    Watcher n2 Only
    Alignment Cop n2 Only 1x Ninja
    Alignment Cop n3 Only 1x Ninja
    Vigilante n2 Only
    Vigilante n3 Only
    Doctor n1, n3
    Doctor n2, n4
    Tracker n1, n3 1x Strongman
    Tracker n2, n4 1x Strongman
    Jailkeeper n1, n3
    Jailkeeper n2, n4
    Roleblocker n1, n3
    Roleblocker n2, n4
    Role Cop n1, n2, n3 1x Strongman
    Jack of All Trades
    (Role Cop, Tracker, Roleblocker)
    n1, n2, n3
    Jack of All Trades
    (Doctor, Jailkeeper, Voyeur)
    n1, n2, n3
    Voyeur n1, n2, n3, n4 1x Strongman


    Watcher: Learns who visited the target, but not what actions they did

    Alignment Cop: Learns whether the target is town or mafia, but not their role

    Vigilante: Kills the target

    Doctor: Protects the target from kills on that night only (cannot self-protect)

    Tracker: Learns who the target visited, but not what actions they did

    Roleblocker: Prevents the target from using their action on that night only

    Jailkeeper: Performs both a Doctor and Roleblocker action on the target, both protecting and blocking them (cannot self-protect)

    Role Cop: Learns the role of the target, but not whether they are town or mafia

    Jack of All Trades: Can use one of their abilities per night without repeats

    Voyeur: Learns what type of actions were performed on the target, but not who did them

    Macho: The player cannot be protected from kills

    Strongman: Kills performed with Strongman cannot be stopped in any way (serves no purpose if the player is town)

    Ninja: Night actions performed on the night that Ninja is used are invisible to investigative roles (Trackers, Watchers, and Voyeurs)

    MECHANICS
    • Role reveals at death are alignment only. You will not learn a player's exact role when they die.
    • Usage of night actions is optional, but unused actions will be lost.
    • Mafia factional kills are optional. Mafia may submit a factional kill each night, but are not required to. However, starting night 5, the factional kill will be mandatory.
    • Mafia factional kills are assigned. They can be tracked, watched, or roleblocked.
    • Mafia share a factional Night Kill, which is a single standard shot for their faction.
    • Mafia members may perform the faction kill in addition to their regular action at the same time.

    FAQ
    Please note that Mafia Host - the Modbot - will post a FAQ as well that might contain answers to some questions that aren't covered here.

    Q: What changes to the setup have been made since the practice games?

    A: The Roleblocker role has been split into two roles, creating 18 total. One role will randomly be excluded from the setup, and the Mafia will be told which one it is. Also, both Tracker roles have gained Strongman modifiers.


    Q: What does Cycle mean?

    A: Cycle is Modbot terminology for the night(s) on which a role can act. This is an example of how some roles might appear in Role PMs and Role Cop investigations:

    Jack of All Trades (x1 Doctor, x1 Jailkeeper, x1 Voyeur) | Cycle 1, 2, 3
    Doctor | Cycle 2, 4
    Alignment Cop | x1 Ninja | Cycle 2
    Macho Watcher | Cycle 1


    Q: What do the Voyeur results look like?

    A: The Voyeur sees the type of action performed on the target, but not the exact action. Modbot groups the actions into four categories: Protection (Doctor), Manipulative (Roleblocker, Jailkeeper), Killing (Vigilante, Mafia Faction Kill), and Investigative (all others). The Voyeur does not see their own action in their results. This is a sample results PM: "theknightsofneeee had Manipulative, Investigative, Killing done to them."


    Q: What is the order of operations? What happens if a roleblocker targets a roleblocker?

    A: The automated post at the start of each game contains a FAQ (in a spoiler tag) which answers these questions and more. However, there is one important clarification: the order of operations lists Strongman Kills first because they are immune to blocks, and regular kills are listed ahead of investigative actions because investigative roles can witness killing actions, but this only means that the target is marked for death before other actions are processed. No deaths actually occur until after all actions have been processed. In other words, dying at night never stops a player's action from happening.

    The other important pieces of information are that Roleblockers act before Jailkeepers and that those roles are capable of blocking another player who attempts to use the same action. For more detailed information, please consult the aforementioned FAQ.

    Q: Can Mafia players target their teammates with night actions?

    A: Yes. The Mafia's faction kill cannot be used on a member of their own team, but all other actions (including Vigilante kills) may be used on members of their own team.


    Q: Can Doctors and Jailkeepers self-target in order to protect themselves?

    A: No.

    Q: Which roles can self-target?

    A: Only Watchers.


    Q: Are the Strongman and Ninja actions limited only to the nights listed on the chart?

    A: No. If a player is Mafia, they may use their Strongman or Ninja ability on any night.


    Q: Can players be investigated while they are jailkept?

    A: Yes. Jailkeep is a combination of roleblock and doctor, neither of which prevent investigations on the target.

    HELPFUL INFORMATION

    The boxes below contain very helpful information. If you're a first-time player, we highly recommend that you read through it all.

    MAFIA GAME RULES
    Rules may vary from community to community, so we highly advise you to carefully read these rules.

    • Only post/talk about the game in this thread. Don't PM other players, unless you are mafia and wish to talk with your teammates. Also, don't post anything about the game in other threads or on other forums.
    • Don't try to use the form of your role PM. So a screenshot of your role PM would be cheating.
    • You are not allowed to change your avatar, location or any other profile info during game in any way that could be construed as hinting at your role.
    • This is a game of lying. Players are expected to lie. No statement or promise a player makes within the game has any force outside the game. As an example, a bet offered in a game is not something you can collect if you win.
    • If we believe you to be bending the rules intentionally in a way that clearly goes against the spirit of the rules and the game, then that would also be grounds for modkill.
    • If you have any questions about rules, send a PM to your host. Avoid asking questions to the host in the thread. And definitely do not make a post in the game thread asking the host to sub out a player. If you feel that a player is not being active enough, PM Thingyman or Lissa about it (but we're always keeping an eye on this anyway, so don't worry).
    • Don't ever refer to private communications with the Game Host.
    • If you should ever require a replacement, PM both Thingyman and Lissa and stop posting in the thread.
    • No hydra'ing / multi-accounting is allowed. Do not share your account with anyone else.
    • You are not allowed to reference the post-game voting during the game. I.e. you cannot post "if you lynch me, you're not getting my vote after the game" or anything like that.
    • Treat your fellow players with respect. Hostility will not be tolerated.

    Refer to this post for the complete, standard ruleset for mafia games.



    I will repeat this particular rule once more in big letters to make sure you understand:

    DO NOT EVER REFERENCE THIS GAME OUTSIDE OF THIS GAME THREAD. YOU SHOULD NOT BE TALKING ABOUT THIS GAME WHATSOEVER ON YOUR HOME SITE. IF PEOPLE ASK YOU QUESTIONS, TELL THEM YOU CAN'T TALK ABOUT THE GAME AND LINK THEM TO THIS THREAD.
    MINIMUM ACTIVITY REQUIREMENTS
    All players are required to make a minimum of 10 posts per game day.

    The game hosts and tournament organizers reserve all rights to immediately sub out any player not meeting this requirement, regardless of whether or not the player has met the requirement on previous days. Similarly, if players are only meeting this requirement by spamming and/or posting in the last hour of the day, that and similar circumstances would also be cause for substitution.

    If players aren't posting, the tournament organizers will always first try to prod the players in question.

    SUBSTITUTION PROCEDURE
    If your representative needs to sub out during a QUALIFIER, your community's backup will take their place, assuming 1) you've elected one, 2) they've registered a user on Mafia Universe, and 3) that I'm able to get a hold of them within a reasonable amount of time (i.e. with enough time left in the current phase for the sub to work with).

    If I can't get a hold of your backup, I will give the spot to a representative from a community that joined the series late - or failing that, a backup from one of the larger communities.

    If your representative needs to sub out during a WILDCARD or FINALE, your community's backup will NOT take their place. Instead the next person who was in line to receive a wildcard or finale spot will take their place.
    As was specified in the invitation, some of you will be picked by the jury to advance to one of this season's two wildcard games. In total, the jury selects 23 players that they feel are deserving of a second chance.

    Below is a statement from the jury foreman.

    Hello and good luck to all representatives!

    We, the jury, would like to take this occasion to somewhat clarify our mission and criteria. We consist of finalists from Season 5 who have agreed to follow this year's qualifying games in order to select a number of players for the wildcard rounds who were not directly voted in but otherwise displayed skill - to give them a "second chance" of making the finals, in other words.

    This past offseason, there was some momentum to make the jury's exact criteria for advancing select players more transparent, in order to give them an idea of things that we're looking for over the course of the games.

    The problem with doing this, especially before the games start and we've really had a chance to talk to each other in detail, is that each individual juror has their own opinions of what constitutes a player worthy of advancement. Over the coming months, we'll certainly talk about it, argue about it, and come to a consensus - that's the entire point, after all - but singling out specific things we're looking for at this stage is unfortunately something we cannot do. Nor do we want to unduly influence games by having players play "unnaturally" simply because they know we're observing and judging them.

    That said, we will be examining each player's output holistically. How accurate a player's reads are, how sound a player's logic and rationale is behind their reads, how well they know and use the game's mechanics, how well they work with others in order to accomplish their team's goals, and many more traits are all things we'll be taking into account. The only question is how heavily we weigh each trait in determining who to advance to the wildcard round, and that's going to take up a great amount of our time over the coming months.

    tl;dr just play your game, try your best, good luck, and most importantly, have fun!

    WHAT THE $#@! DOES "WTF" MEAN?

    Are you not familiar with some of the terminology used by the other players? Maybe this will help you: TERMINOLOGY EXPLANATIONS.
    DISCLAIMER ALERT
    The beauty of the Mafia Championship is that it brings communities closer together, and it provides an opportunity for players to learn new playstyles, metas and mechanics. And hopefully make new friends as well.

    All that being said, the games can also very quickly become overwhelming and frustrating since you probably won't be able to play completely in the same way that you're used to. You don't necessarily need to adapt, but you will probably need to accept that some of the other players will have a different approach to the game than you.

    We hope that you will embrace this as part of the experience. It's easy to grow frustrated with people when you don't know them (imagine how you would have felt playing with your friends on your home site if you didn't know any of them when you played your first game together), so a huge part of playing in the Championship is also getting to know the other players in some way.

    Specifically, the seasons have taught us that you should be prepared for:
    • A very high level of activity. On average, there will be 600 posts per 24 hours during the early stages of the game. This is a melting pot of dedicated and enthusiastic players all gathered in one game.
    • You will likely face very different posting styles: Some will post walls of texts with many quotes, some will post a ton of one-liners, and some people will be very keen to interact in real-time in the thread (using the thread as a chat rather than a thread you pop into a few times a day).
    • A flurry of activity towards the end of the day. This means that if you check out 5 hours before the day ends, you should not be surprised to return the next day to see that the wagons were changed multiple times. If you want your vote to count, be careful to not agree to a game where you can never be around for EOD.
    • A few players in your game will probably have played with each other before. This has become impossible to prevent as increasingly many players have played on Mafia Universe.
    • We do not condone abusive remarks and we have banned several communities from participating based on this before, but each season features dozens of new communities, so there is always a slight risk that you might encounter abusive players. If you do, please report them and we'll take care of it.

    Some advice:
    • Get an avatar. This makes it easier for everyone to tell each other apart.
    • You can choose between different forum themes (i.e. make the forum look different) in the bottom left corner of the site. Some of them are better suited for mobile devices than others.
    • Look at your settings. You can customize profanity filter, you can choose to automatically receive email notifications of new replies to the game thread if you wish, and you can edit Posts per Page (many regular MU'ers have it set to 100 per page).
    • If at all possible, try to make a habit out of checking in as regularly as you can, especially during the very beginning of the game. Don't delay your first check-in - or you will face a swamp of posts and you will feel like you're constantly trying to catch up.

    Most importantly, just do your best and have fun. The experience is mostly what you make it. There will be tryhards, there will be noobs, there will be meme posters, and there will be people just here to make friends. All are accepted, all are welcome.

    All that being said, past seasons have shown that players get more enjoyment out of the games when they make connections with the other players, so we highly encourage you to join our Discord server either before or after the game.

    FINAL NOTES

    This is already covered in "Using our software" above, but since this is a role-heavy automated game with a lot of new players to the site, we want to make extra sure that people are submitting night actions correctly.

    All roles have actions to use, and these actions can only be used on certain nights. The Cycle modifier part of your role will make it clear which nights you can use your action on. For example, if your role ends with "Cycle 2, 4", you can use your night action on nights 2 and 4.

    One more thing that's important to understand is that you can pre-submit your actions for any given night on the day phase leading up to that night. So if you know that you'll be away during the night phase, or even if you're afraid that you might just forget, you can just submit it in advance. I.e. if your role has a Cycle 1 modifier, you can submit your action at any point on Day 1 - you don't need to wait until Night 1 begins.

    If you choose to not use your action on a night that you are able to use it on, you will lose it and will not be able to "save" it for later.

    How do I submit my Night Action?

    In automated games, you may submit your actions by scrolling to the bottom of the thread and selecting your target(s) from a dropdown list using the Night Action Form for the each action. When you have selected a target, press Submit, and your current target will be changed to the player you selected.

    You can change your action as many times as you'd like. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    Sending your action via PM to the host does NOT work! You need to use the form!

    The Mafia Championship is, first and foremost, about building bonds between communities and creating new friendships.

    You are all here to compete, but you are also here to represent your home community. Amongst the 187 communities that are participating this year, we have many different community types, nationalities, playstyles and experience levels represented. The Mafia Championship is all about celebrating these differences and opening up an opportunity for us all to learn from each other.

    As long as you are playing to win, there is no wrong way to play this game. Some people enjoy roleplaying, some enjoy "$#@!posting", some enjoy solving the logic puzzle, and some enjoy an aggressive approach to discerning others' alignments. They are all valid playstyles.

    So we ask that, in the true spirit of the Mafia Championship, that you, as players, do your best to enjoy the experience for what it is: A melting pot of unique and wildly varying playstyles and personalities. You may grow frustrated at times. In fact, it is easy to grow frustrated when you're playing with people that you don't know, which is why we also hope that - besides following our Code of Conduct - you'll make an effort to get to know your fellow players at least a little bit. As the five previous seasons have shown, a majority of you will make several friends from this game.

    Good luck and have fun!

    BIO:
    The games where I come from are usually role madness games as these have historically been the most fun / most engaging for players. This has created a catalogue of both legendary and infamous games throughout the mafia history on the site. One of the craziest plays I personally made was using my own Bus Driver power to swap myself with another player Night 1 who turned out to be mafia. The same night I was targetted to be killed and the kill redirected onto the mafia player instead. Another particularly infamous game was completely broken in the space of half an hour when the mods were forced to allow character claiming after putting a 'Flavour Cop' in the game. After the existance of a Flavour Cop was known the change was made to allow character claiming and the town mass claimed characters causing the game to be over in the blink of an eye.

    As you can see I come from a background of pretty insane games. I think that the vast majority of Mafia players would feel like they had entered an alternate mafia reality if they were to play a game on our forum. In my last appearance in a Mafia Universe game I played a Hydra game with another member and we were lynched Day 1 due to a difference in rules we were used to between our forum and how everyone else apparently plays. On our forum it's reasonably common to vote for a 'policy lynch' if no better options present themselves as lynching somebody is better than nobody and often the only way to reach a majority is to bargin to policy lynch someone if scum hunting is unsuccessful.
    What we didn't know when we came into the game was that you don't need to reach a majority Day 1 to perform a lynch, whoever has the most votes at the end of the day is lynched instead. This unfortunate difference in what we were used to was enough to have mafia push to lynch us to which some of the town followed. The vast majority of the game discussion also happened during different time zones to us so we found it difficult to defend ourselves coming back to 500+ posts every morning we woke up.

    I'm looking to improve on this last performance on Mafia Universe as I believe myself to be a very capable player and feel like I didn't get the chance to show what I can do the last time I played a game here. Even though it was a Hydra game and probably not to be taken too seriously it left a bad taste in my mouth and I want to show that the players from AuSmash can compete with the best of them.

    BIO:
    I guess the most interesting fact about myself is that I'm ranked 2nd in the world in time trials at Mario Kart 64. On the forums for the website I've also played mafia for the last few years and have also played some IRL mafia. I feel like I enjoy being mafia or VT the most, the most pressure I feel is as a PR and trying to get the most out of my night actions. I would call myself a very analytical player that's good at finding trends on D2 or D3 from early game posts that other people didn't notice. As a mafia member I like to communicate a great deal with my teammates.

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: Student Doctor Network and Mafia Universe

    BIO:
    This one is known as Dubz. She is cute and sweet and oh so likable. Who doesn't like small and cute things? She has a fierce love of ties, pretending to have post restrictions, and being a wolf all the time. She's very agreeable and people like her and her backwards reads so they keep her around. Trying to start a lynch on her is akin to a Herculean task and is always wrong no matter the affiliation which is why (almost) no one does it.

    Up until endgame, no one thinks she knows anything. Secretly, silently, sneakily, she's been collecting all sorts of information on all of her comrades. Either wolf or village, she brings down anyone in her path with fire and destruction. Suddenly, those who thought her adorable, cower before her, shielding their eyes from her vicious posts. In the end, she always wins, one way or the other. Do it for the lulz.

    When not power-wolfing, dubz loves walks on the beach looking for Cthulhu and eating hats.

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: ToS (did not enjoy the pace), HWW

    BIO:
    I started playing/hosting Mafia intermittently in 2005 when I worked at a summer camp. We would all sit in a circle while my friend Jimmie would walk around our perimeter. He would make up complex, graphic storylines on the spot to explain our deaths and immerse us in the game. I have a lot of fond memories of those days. I didn't play regularly until 2016 when I started HWW with another friend, poomps. Since then, I've played by my gut. I like to encourage #boldmoves and loud strategy, which often gets me voted out early, but for some reason they still like to keep me around in the community. The posting format for this forum is quite different, but I'm hoping to hit the ground running.

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: epicmafia.com

    BIO:
    While I originally learned how to play in real life, I was shown EpicMafia (est. 2008) by friends in 2011 as a 15 year old, Since then, I have made numerous contributions to the website, including the creation and rewriting of multiple site rules, and the creation of the Mentoring Program: a Mafia mentorship program by which users are paired with "mentors" to help them with whatever they need help with in terms of their mafia game. I also have a YouTube channel on which I have made educational Mafia-related videos (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzu...lZ_yb5OzRiNqbA -- I haven't made any videos in a long time, however). I have also moderated for the website 8 different times. I have the third most Mafia trophies from competitions in site history (14--the most of any active user) and have the most Mafia trophies on any one account in site history (Giga13 - https://epicmafia.com/user/220988). This same account is also tied for the #1 ranking on EpicMafia's Current (last 18 months) Most Decorated Hall of Fame, and is ranked #1 on its All-Time Most Decorated Hall of Fame for Mafia trophies.

    While I've played far less mafia in the past few years than I once did (mainly due to life becoming busier), I still absolutely love to play the game of Mafia when I have the time, and am happy that I have the opportunity to try my hand once again in the Mafia Universe Championships--I played in the inaugural season as one of three representatives from EpicMafia back in 2014, and am looking forward to playing in it again.

    BIO:
    i actually have the 2nd highest winning percentage (supposedly) within our active players.

    my approach has changed in recent games as I used to tend to play too much on the suspicious side whether or not I was town or mafia.



    overall, I think this is a really fun game that really doesn’t overlap into my real life.

    I undestand the language gets dirty sometimes and that’s cool with me.

    im looking forward to playing with people I’ve never played with before and hopefully I do ok...

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: labsk.net, not only werewolf (NSW), castronegro.net

    BIO:
    It all started on labsk.net, the reference forum for board games in Spanish.

    One day in 2007 a small game of werewolf was organized... Two years later werewolf players had to migrate to a new forum because our activity was so big that labsk.net had problems with the server. Finally labsk.net was hosted on a new server, but we didn't play there anymore...we had created our forum: not only werewolf (NSW)

    After 4 years there, we settled definitively in castronegro.net, and there we play now, paying the server between the users.



    To be brief:

    There is no board game in the world capable of matching the sensations of an online werewolf game.I love this game, that's why I'm here.

    I have played countless games. And I've played practically every role. Although our way of playing is not exactly yours, and I will have to adapt.
    And I'll have a lot to read...

    BIO:
    I can't be a wolf, because I am, in fact, a hyena! Easy, right?

    I started playing mafia at Town of Salem (the game) after watching people play at DailyMafia on Twitch. Then, I started playing forum mafia after I saw my ToS friend, TiltedComedian, doing so on ToS's forum. The concept of mafia really vibes with me because I like figuring out and understanding how individual people work. They're all different, y'know? :3 Plus, it's a good way to make friends.

    BIO:
    I'm MoonRaven and I hail from DCTP which stands for Detective Conan Translation Project. Our forum has been playing mafia for a long time and personally I started joining the games 2014 onwards. In person Tabula Rasa/Werewolf I've played since 2009 but it has been years since my last game.
    With Forum Mafia I'm mostly used to the roles customed to Detective Conan character but I believe I'll quickly start remembering the 'official roles' as well.
    As a player regardless of an alliance I tend to be quite homicidal but not very plotting. Even if a townie is lynched in voting, I'm glad because in my opinion that just means smaller pool of suspects to pick from.
    Let's have a great Mafia game!

    FAQ

    Are you unsure about how actions are processed or how roles interact with each other? Then read more here:

    ORDER OF OPERATIONS

    Night actions are processed in this order:

    Strongman kills
    Roleblocks
    Jails
    Doctors
    Bodyguards
    Kills
    Investigations
    Backups

    When an action was submitted during the night will never matter when the actions are processed.

    ACTION FEEDBACK

    These are the results you will get when you submit certain actions.

    Non-investigative roles when they submit an action (they also receive this if they are roleblocked):

    Your action on Player A was received.
    Investigative actions return results even if the target dies on the same night.

    Actions that count as visits are counted as visits even if the actor dies on the same night.

    Investigative roles (Tracker, Cop, etc.) when roleblocked:

    Your action on Player B did not return any results.
    Trackers when tracking a person that didn't visit anyone (or if they targeted a Ninja):

    Player C did not visit anyone.
    Watchers when watching a person that wasn't visited by anyone (or only visited by a Ninja):

    Player D was not visited by anyone.
    Alignment Cop when investigating a town-aligned player (or a Godfather):

    Player E is Town
    Watcher when watching a person that was visited by multiple people:

    Player F was visited by Player G, Player H, Player I
    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    How do I submit my action?
    Use the form below the game thread. If your role has a night action, the form will only be visible during night phases. It's not possible to submit actions in advance of the night phase.

    What does it mean if the Mafia Host says that night kills are assigned?
    In games with this setting turned on, the member of the mafia team that made the most recent night kill submission will be the one assigned to the kill, which means that the kill can be blocked if a Town Roleblocker or Town Jailkeeper target the mafia player in question. Similarly, the kill can be tracked and watched by Town Trackers and Town Watchers. If this setting isn't turned on, then it doesn't matter who the last person to submit the mafia kill is, as the kill is unblockable and untrackable in this case.

    Where do I find example role PM's?
    This thread contains example role PM's for all roles currently supported by the Modbot as well as information on the various modifiers. Here you will find the answers to a lot of questions not covered in this FAQ section.

    Which roles can self-target?
    Only Watchers are able to use their ability on themselves at night. This means that Doctors or Jailkeepers aren't able to protect themselves, for example.

    Which roles are not able to target the same players on consecutive nights?
    Doctors, Jailkeepers, and Roleblockers are not allowed to target the same player twice in a row. Everyone else is, including Bodyguards. Note that this non-consecutive restriction still holds true even if one of these three roles were blocked the night before when targeting the person that they're attempting to target again.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A and Jailkeeper B or Roleblocker A and Roleblocker B target each other (and are not targetted by other blockers)?
    In the case of Jailkeepers, they will block and protect each other. In the case of Roleblockers, they also block each other. This means that the two players are trackable to each other that night by Trackers and Watchers. It also means that if one of them is mafia and happens to simultaneously be the one submitting the factional kill that night in a game with assigned kills, then this kill is blocked. This same principle applies to longer loops. I.e. in a A > B > C > D > A loop, everyone is blocked.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A targets Roleblocker B who targets Jailkeeper A?
    Jailkeeper A will be blocked in this scenario. Refer to the order of operations: Roleblocks process before jails.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A targets Roleblocker B who targets Player C?
    As stated above, roleblocks process before jails, so Roleblocker B will successfully block Player C. I.e. Jailkeeper A will fail to block Roleblocker B, but will still protect Roleblocker B.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A targets Jailkeeper B and Jailkeeper B targets Jailkeeper C (who isn't targeting any of the former two)?
    In this case, Jailkeeper A would prevent Jailkeeper B's block from occuring, meaning that Jailkeeper C's action is not blocked.

    If an X-Shot role is blocked while using a shot, do they lose that shot forever?
    Yes. A 1-shot Vigilante being blocked while attempting to kill someone will not have their shot refunded.

    If someone with a Strongman modifier kills Player A who is protected by Bodyguard B, who dies?
    Player A will die, and Bodyguard B will survive.

    Can a mafia team choose not to kill anyone during a night?
    The host can determine this using the Mafia Factional Kill setting. Kills can be mandatory, optional, or disabled altogether.

    The default is No. The mafia factional kill is compulsory. This is done in order to avoid deadlocked games where the town keeps no lynching and the mafia refuses to submit a kill. If the game has assigned kills, it will be randomized which member of the team is carrying out the kill.

    If there is only one mafia member left in a game without assigned kills, can the mafia factional kill then be blocked and/or tracked?
    No.

    Can the mafia submit a kill for one of their own members?
    No.

    If I kill someone, does their night action, if they have one, still succeed?
    Yes, killing someone doesn't prevent them from performing their night action (unless they investigated someone, in which case they will not receive a report). Refer to the order of operations: All kills happen at the end of the night, and everyone pulls the trigger simultaneously.

    Can individual night actions be proxied on mafia teams?
    No. If the mafia team has a Mafia Roleblocker, for example, and they want to use this role's action, then the player occupying that slot must submit the action themselves.

    If a Lover is shot during the night, while the other Lover is protected that night, does the other Lover still die?
    Yes. It's not possible to prevent a Lover from dying of love sickness.

    If a Bodyguard protects Lover A, while Lover B is shot during that same night, what happens?
    A dies of love sickness and Bodyguard lives.

    If there are any Innocent Childs in the game, are these confirmed in the thread right when the game begins?
    No. Innocent Childs are able to decide themselves when or if they wish to have the Modbot confirm their role and alignment in the thread. Note that this is exclusively a day action and that it can take up to one minute for the Modbot to process the action.

    What results are Alignment Cops, Full Cops and Role Cops given if they investigate a Godfather or a Miller?
    Alignment Cops are told "Town" for Godfathers and "Mafia" for Millers. Full Cops are told "Vanilla Town" for Godfathers and "Mafia Goon" for Millers. Role Cops are told "Godfather" for Godfathers and "Miller" for Millers.

    Can Role Cops tell the difference between a Vanilla Town and Mafia Goon?
    No. They are told "Vanilla" when investigating either of these two roles.

    If I roleblock someone with a Bulletproof Vest, will that nullify the effect of the vest?
    No. Bulletproof Vests are passive modifiers that cannot be blocked from working.

    If I roleblock Masons, Neighbors or Lovers with out of thread communication privileges, can I prevent them from talking at night?
    No.

    If I roleblock a Godfather, will they still be revealed as being town-aligned to Alignment Cops and Full Cops that night?
    Yes.

    USING THE SOFTWARE

    Are you wondering about how to vote, submit night actions or multi-isolate players? Read about this and more here:

    VOTING BBCODES

    Our forum votes for someone by using the vote tags: [V]Thingyman[/V]. Preview:

    ##Vote Thingyman

    Make sure that you spell out the full, correct name. Abbreviations or misspelled names will not be registered by the Modbot.

    To unvote, use the tags: [UNV][/UNV] . When unvoting you do not need to enter the name of the person that you are unvoting. Preview:

    ##Unvote

    VOTING BUTTONS

    You can also quickly vote for someone by clicking on the box with a checkmark icon, which will bring up an alphabetized dropdown containing the names of living players:



    This will insert [V][/V] tags with the name of the player you selected in the dropdown, perfect every time.

    Click the empty checkbox button to insert [UNV][/UNV].

    SUBMITTING NIGHT ACTIONS

    If you have a night action, simply submit this at night by scrolling to the bottom of the game thread. Here you will find a night action form like this:



    Click the dropdown and select the player whom you wish to use your night action on. You can change it as many times as you wish before the deadline expires.

    CALLING UP A VOTECOUNT

    Votecounts will appear automatically at various intervals, but you can also call up votecounts yourself by following these steps:

    First, you need to apply to join "Mafia Game Hosts" under Permission Groups.

    Second, once your request has been approved, you will be able to call up votecounts by simply pushing the "Post Votecount" button in the top right corner of any game thread that you'd like an updated votecount for.


    VIEWING VOTE HISTORY

    There are three ways to access the vote history for any game.

    1. Click on the "Vote History" button in the top right corner of the game thread:

    2. Click on the "View Vote History" link, which accompanies all votecounts:

    3. Click on Modbot in the top forum menu. This will give you a list of ongoing and completed games:



      Next, simply click on "Vote History" to view all votes for that game.

    Following any of the above three steps will bring you to an overview like this one:



    Click on a Voter's username to view all of the votes by their slot.

    Click on a Target's username to view all of the votes for their slot.

    ISOLATING A PLAYER'S POSTS

    If you wish to read a player's posts in isolation, simply click on "ISO" in the top right corner of one of that player's posts in the relevant thread as illustrated here:



    Alternatively, you can access a player's posts in isolation by clicking on the number next to "Replies:" in the forum lobby.



    Doing so will pull up a window listing the post counts for everyone who has posted in that thread. You access someone's posts in isolation by simply clicking on the number next to "Posts:" for that person.



    The ISO view itself has Quote and Multi-Quote buttons inside it, which will make it very easy to quickly quote a lot of a player's posts for analysis or commentary:


    MULTI-ISOLATING

    If you wish to read not just one player's posts, but you want to ISO multiple players, then click the "Multi ISO" button to the left of "Game Tools" and select the players in question as shown here:


    MULTI-QUOTING WHILE THREAD IS LOCKED

    Note that you can multi-quote posts from even locked game threads. This is useful for when you wish to reread the game and do work during night phases.

    After quoting the relevant posts, you simply open a different, opened thread and press "Go Advanced". Then add the quotes to your post by clicking the prompt below the post area as shown here:



    Now, of course you can't post your work in the game thread while the thread is locked, but you can copy paste and save your work to a local file or the cloud and have it ready to post the very next day phase (if you're still alive, that is).

    BOOKMARKS

    Whenever you open a game thread, you are able to bookmark posts. This is for many players an important tool for keeping track of and remembering vital pieces of information, reads, claims etc.

    Also, note that these bookmarks are saved to your user account, meaning that it eliminates the trouble associated with keeping notes between different computers/devices.

    If you want to bookmark a post, you simply scroll to the post that you want to bookmark and press "Set Bookmark" as shown here:



    This will call up 5 different colored icons (Blue, Red, Yellow, Green, and Black) on the right side of the post in question. You can click any of these icons, which will then prompt you to include a note for the post.

    If you don't want to include a note, you don't have to - just leave it blank. The color coding in itself can be a valuable tool. Maybe you want to use Red bookmarks for posts that you find suspicious, Green bookmarks for posts that you find townie, Black bookmarks for posts containing claims, or whatever system you can think of that will be helpful to you.



    Once this is done, you have now successfully bookmarked a post with a certain color and maybe even a note. If you wish to remove the bookmark again, click on "Unset Bookmark".

    How do I access bookmarks?

    There are two ways to access your bookmarks.
    1. Inside a game thread, you can access the bookmarks for that specific game by simply right clicking on the "Bookmark" button and opening the link.

      This will bring you to a separate page that is automatically filtered to only show bookmarks from the game thread that you accessed the page from.
    2. You can also access your bookmarks by going to Features in the site's top menu:



      This will bring you to a page where no bookmarks are shown by default. However, you have several filtering options.

      You can filter by Game, by Player and by Color - and all of them at once if you so wish.

      Here's an example of filtering by only red bookmarks in one specific game:



    If you want to be taken directly to one of your bookmarked posts, you just click the post number.

    How do I quote bookmarks?

    You can also multi-quote bookmarked posts by clicking the little "+" button seen above on the far right side of each bookmark.

    Once you have multi-quoted all the bookmarked posts that you want to quote, you will then have to go to the game thread in which you wish to quote the bookmarked posts.

    Here you have two ways of quoting the posts.

    1. Click on "Reply With Quote" on another post as shown here:



      You will then probably want to delete the last post quoted in the reply box, but otherwise you should be good to go.
    2. Or you can do the more smooth option and click the "Reply To Thread" button at the top and bottom of the game thread - as shown here:



      By doing this you will open up a reply box containing only your multi-quoted bookmarked posts.

    The Anarene Herald
    Everything’s alright in Anarene.

    After an uneventful evening Andy, the night watchman, has started his watch. There’s not much to worry about. Prairie wind howls through abandoned streets and every approaching car is old news by the time it passes his old white Nash. He keeps rolling cigarette with his brown thumbs. Only an occasional passerby can throw him out of his lethargy.
    It’s Sonny, the co-captain of the local high school football team. In a levi jacket he heads to the picture show his hair combed back. Sonny’s a good boy and a terrible football player. Andy doesn’t waste words on the kid. He wish the boy could learn tackle. He puts the finished cigarette in his mouth and leans back. Sonny passes the empty ticket booth and disappears inside of the picture show.

    There’s ain’t no drama happening tonight, Andy Reckons.

    I’m at work for the next three hours but had to make sure to say hello hahaha. Look forward to talking to anyone who is around for what will probably be the graveyard shift for anyone else (will be 5pm for me though).

    Sup Bijou! Hope the both of you have had a good day so far.

    Bijou, were you hoping to be a specific alignment going into this game?

    Also, Indigo and the other people who don't have avatars, could you add an avatar? It's not required but it just makes the thread a little easier to follow.

    Exclamation

    What’s up MU! Rons said this place was the $#@!, so here I am, man. Now let’s get to the plan, Stan.

    First thing is first, none of you have relevant bios and I’m super disappointed.

    Third thing second, I’m playing mostly from my phone so expect horrible typos and syntax.

    Nextly, have I ever told you about what’s hiding in the sea? besides the Kraken of course, which is what we lovingly refer to Chesskid’s big ol $#@!sickle as over at ye olde 451.

    (The answer is merpeople, probably maybe definitely.)


    Now let’s skip to D4 so I can figure this game out and we can go home #winners #truebelievers #getwoketomerpeopleyo

    I had an edited version of my bio that mentioned a game I played recently where I singlehandedly made it to lylo as scum before promptly being killed. It was a good game until a devastating slip on my end.

    Well for starters none of you actually listed skills, you all just put hobbies. Unless you’re actually in the mafia but I doubt that, Rico would’ve mentioned it.

    I see, I see. As far as skills go, I like to think I've got good reads and am good at putting together really good town circles (I find town easier than I do scum). I'm horrible with mechanical stuff.

    What kind of books do you read in these town circles? It sounds lovely tbh. Not sure that’s really a skill though, unless you’re bragging about being literate I guess.

    Scum is pretty hard to find in a well maintained town, you have to go out into the woods and find a good forest pond usually.

    Do you enjoy playing both alignments for the same reasons? Or, do you, like, have reasons you enjoy playing as one alignment and other reasons you enjoy playing as the other?

    Statistically and analytically speaking one of the 4 of you who have posted in this thread are highly likely to be scum this game. Not certain who yet but I'll figure it out.

    I enjoy the puzzle solving aspect of playing town while I also find the challenge of misleading town to be fun also.

    Playing either alignment is pretty different, if I had to pick I prefer playing as town because I don’t need to stress about what I’m posting being a lie or anything like that. Playing with a free conscience is nice.

    How about yourself and Keldeo? Do you have any preferences for alignments?

    Early gut thinks Bijou, but the troll-y game style that Conqueror is playing with is a super tough one to read to his credit so I'd say 50/50 on them.

    There's a 30% chance that four random people in this game are town.

    In my experience, if you play relatively honestly and try to play as town hunting mafia, you'll blend in much better as long as you aren't suspicious about the nit picking you'll inevitably have to do as mafia to pull off a mislynch without drawing attention.

    Sorry, didn't see your post before posting.

    Could you elaborate on why Bijou or is it just "gut"?

    The game started 40 minutes ago. Does something make you think Nanook will continue posting in this way?

    The 30% town is the statistically part. Naturally, for the one who is scum that 30% is reality.
    I mentioned already but Bijou is an early gut read. I'm willing to give them the benefit for now but I'm throwing the thought out there in the meantime.

    There's a 30% chance that four random people in this game are town.

    Do you have a particular suspicion on someone who's posted?
    Sorry, didn't see your post before posting.

    Could you elaborate on why Bijou or is it just "gut"?

    The game started 40 minutes ago. Does something make you think Nanook will continue posting in this way?
    He reminds me of someone from my home site like i said. The nature of his posting style is just a really good way to blend in. No reason to think he'll keep it up right now since also on my home site D1 is basically $#@! post until someone slips.

    Mostly gut but more in the sense that their posts strike me as trying to be particularly friendly early. Yours felt like getting a feel in the room theirs feels like "try to blend in" if that makes any sense. Could just be their nerves I'm picking up

    It's Day 1, not much to say yet. Still it doesn't hurt to start a discussion.
