Hydra Event 2019!
Three is more than two!
1) @Ampharos, co-scheduler
2) @Lissa, co-scheduler
3) @mhsmith0, host wrangler
4) @Arapocalypse, hype squad organizer!!!
5) @sheepsaysmeep, general hype!
Any of the 5 of us can be contacted with issues relating to any aspect of the event, with the exception of any game we happen to be playing in!The Mafia Championship can sometimes be a bit serious business. And you know, sometimes girls just wanna have fun. So consider this an off-season "for fun" event with no pressure - it's all about meeting people from other communities and just showing off the unique qualities of your home community in the hopes that new bonds can be formed.
For those who don't know what a Hydra is, it's when two players play a game on the same account (two heads of a hydra). When the account dies in the game, both players making up that hydra are eliminated. So basically, this event is a chance for you to partner up with a friend and play against duos from other communities.
This year, we're adding a new twist of one game with three-headed hydras!!! Yes, you read that right: in the designated game, each hydra will be an account consisting of exactly 3 players, no more, no less! Due to scheduling complexity, there will only be a single 3-headed hydra game hosted on December 16th,with an open setup dependent on interest!
The 2018 event attracted 100 unique hydras, and we're looking forward to all the hydras signing up this year, new and old!!After you've signed up (details below), we'll slot you into a game according to your preferences, pinging you in this thread once the schedule is set!
No matter what setup is chosen, expect these to be some of the mechanics and rules of your game:
Mechanics: Deadline lynch w/ majority option after Day 1, in the case of a tie the lynch will be randomized, no lynch is a valid vote.
Night Chat: Not allowed, the thread is closed during night phases.
Out of Thread Communication: Each hydra pair is allowed to use any means of privately communicating with each other. Besides this, only the mafia team may communicate outside of the thread.
Minimum participation requirements: 10 posts per game day. If you do not meet 10 posts, you will be asked if you can improve or potentially subbed out. Hydras not meeting this requirement will only be modkilled in extreme circumstances, such as if no sub can be found.
Expect your game to start sometime between late October and early December (dates offered will be every Monday from October 28th to December 9th). As long as you and your partner can start your game somewhere in that time frame, we should be able to fit you into a game that suits you.
Be sure to sign up by November 1st and please do try to have your form/doodle completed by then as well, as the full schedule of game dates will be released shortly afterwards! If you wish to play in the game starting on October 28th, you will need to complete your forms ASAP in order for our schedulers to fit you in!!
Read our general site rules here.The following will be offered as setup options:
- A game consisting of vanilla town, mafia goons, and one town alignment cop!
- A game consisting of vanilla town, mafia goons, and one town vigilante!
- A game consisting solely of vanilla town and mafia goons, no PRs!
- D6 Mafia is a 13-player Semi-Open Variable setup designed to offer a more balanced experience compared to C9++.
Town Power Roles:
To determine the town power roles, roll a die six times and mark down the numbers. Each roll corresponds to a grouping below.
Mark down the number of each grouping and add the corresponding roles from the table below.
Investigative 1 Innocent Child 2 Role Oracle 3 Role Cop 4 Tracker 5 Parity Cop 6 Cop (with Night 0 peek)
Protective 1 Bodyguard 2 Doctor 3 Roleblocker 4 Jailkeeper 5 Jailkeeper + Bodyguard 6 Roleblocker + Doctor
Killing 1 1-Shot Vigilante 2 2-Shot Vigilante 3 Vigilante 4 Vigilante 5 Vigilante + 1-Shot Vigilante 6 Vigilante + 2-Shot Vigilante
Add as many Vanilla Town roles as necessary to bring the total number of Town roles to 10.
Mafia Power Roles:
Count the number of town power roles from above, then take that number minus one. Roll a die that many times and mark down the numbers. Add the corresponding roles from the table below.
Mafia Roles 1 Mafia Roleblocker 2 Mafia Roleblocker 3 Mafia Jailkeeper 4 Mafia Role Cop 5 Mafia Tracker 6 Mafia Watcher
Add as many Mafia Goon roles as necessary to bring the total number of Mafia roles to 3.
First, roll a die 6 times.
Town (6d6): 6 (K), 6 (K), 3 (I), 4 (P), 5 (P), 2 (I)
(x2 K) 2-Shot Town Vigilante
(x2 I) Town Role Oracle
(x2 P) Town Doctor
With 3 Town Power Roles, Mafia get two Power Roles. Roll a die 2 times.
Mafia (2d6): 2, 5
(2) Mafia Roleblocker
(5) Mafia Tracker
Fill up the rest of the Town and Mafia with Vanillas and you get:
x1 2-Shot Town Vigilante
x1 Town Role Oracle
x1 Town Doctor
x7 Vanilla Town
x1 Mafia Roleblocker
x1 Mafia Tracker
x1 Mafia Goon
- Custom Closed
Please note that while game size and setup are separate options on the survey, some of these setups are only compatible with certain game sizes.Sign up with a friend from your home community by posting in this thread. Be sure to name the community you're representing and the name of your partner. There is no limit to how many hydras a single community can send. If you cannot find a partner from your home community, then feel free to try to match up with someone else here in this thread as a "Refugee Team". You may sign up for as many hydras as you can find people for and are willing to handle!
Upon signing up you will receive a link to a Doodle and a Google Survey, which will help @Ampharos and @Lissa slot you into a game best suited to your availability and preferences. If you sign up for the three-headed hydra game, you will only receive a Google Survey for phase length and SoD/EoD times.
Either in your signup post or on the survey, please select a name for your hydra - this is the name of the account you'll be playing under. If you fail to do so, the organizers will create one for you, and it will probably be not particularly hype!

Note: I'll either put down MU or my best guess for community if you don't mention it while signing up, so if it's wrong please let me know!
We will need a number of hosts to help us run the event. If you're interested in doing so, contact me or @mhsmith0, who is our official host wrangler this year.
Hosts will be held to higher standards than usual, as this is a cross-community event with less uniformity than the Champs format. It's possible that some of you who apply to host will be asked to accept a cohost, or refused entirely. This will have no bearing on your ability to host other games on Mafia Universe.
The Game Hosts:
- Aquilla - Game 2
- Chemist1422 - Game 3
- iaafr - Game 5
- LordQuas - Game 4
- mhsmith0 - Game 1, 3-headed hydra game
- Virtuoso - Game 1
