Marvel Cinematic Universe Mafia (ft. The Thing, v4)
Setup information is below, shamelessly ripped from Logic, who shamelessly ripped it from Manasi, who shamelessly ripped it from Amy, who shamelessly ripped it from Visorslash.
This is an all vanilla (mountainous game) with a twist. The game is played under anonymous accounts provided by me with an unknown playerlist, so you will need to PM me if you want to play.
Twist: (Lifted from TinCow's The Thing game on the Org, of which this is a straight port).
The Thing (mafia): (3 players), the bad guys. The mafia gets one kill per night, however the mafia will have two options on how to kill:
Option 1: Normal Kill. A mafioso kills a person and they die. Dead player's account is unlinked to their Anonymous account.
Option 2: Doppleganger Kill. A mafioso kills a person, but takes their form. The dead player is unlinked from their Anonymous account, while the mafioso takes control of the dead player's Anonymous account and uses it as his own. The mafioso's old Anonymous account shows up as dead.
The other 14 players will be the villagers who have to use their wits and powers of deduction to work out the impostors.
Game Start: January 5, 2020.
Phases: 5/2 (days) with deadline at 8:00 Eastern.
No majority lynch, no locked votes.
15 posts/day phase minimum.
The game is anonymous, but the hosts are not. If you want to be added to the sub list, or if you wish to $%#!post with us in DVC, contact Voxx (Cynical#2964) or Manasi (Manasi#5561) on discord. Or PM this account, I guess.
Players will be assigned accounts. You are not to change the avatar or password of the account provided to you. You can change user-side settings as you wish - theme, posts per page, etc, but nothing visible.
Ciphers/Codes/Trying to be Overly Clever is all forbidden. Make it difficult to have your body inhabited via posting style and quality, not by pointing back to the 6th letter of the 5th post of each day phase, to prove you are who you initially were. Play to the spirit of the game, both regarding The Thing mechanic, and regarding the Anonymous Account aspect. Yes, this signup thread was initially on DLP. Yes, you probably do know a good chunk of the people in the game. You may not make public reads based on who they are. You may not hint as to who you are. You may not hint as to other people are. You are to pretend you know no one and no one knows you in this game. This could mean you get lynched by people who would otherwise never lynch you. Tough luck! Do not indicate that you have never played/have played on MU before. Do not indicate that you exclusively play on DLP. Say nothing that can be used to more easily identify you. I will beat you over the head with a rubber fish, and possibly modkill, you if you violate the spirit of the game knowingly. Use your brains, I'm 97.26% sure most of you have one. Maybe not you. You know who you are.
You'd think this would be obvious, but be very, very careful about not posting on the account you have for this game elsewhere. Triple check if you want to post outside of the game thread for some reason that you are on your primary account, not this one.
Complaining about the phase lengths/speed of game counts as an identifying feature. You know what you signed up for, suck it up. As long as people meet their 15 post per day phase quota, host intervention will not happen regarding activity.
This signup thread may have initially been on DLP, but MU rules fully apply. Familiarize yourself with them. They are in some aspects more lax than DLP, while in other aspects, stricter than DLP. I will personally come down on you if you disappoint me. You're all playing in this game because I asked you to, and thought you'd enjoy this game together. There are long phases. If you lose your cool, take a step away. Attack the play, never, ever the player. This game could be a long slog, as a 17 player 5/2 mountainous game. Make people want to open up the thread, rather than dread opening up the thread, and have a good time. This is not optional.

The only person we will be able to tell has been taken over is Groot. Their style is too unique.
I disagree, I think keeping tabs on everyone's style and content is important to reduce paranoia about takeovers if no one has been taken over, and to be able to root out takeovers if and when they happen.
