    Season 8, Game 7: Heroes Assemble! Saving Universe City from Itself [The Mafia Championship]

    SEASON 8, GAME 7: HEROES ASSEMBLE! SAVING UNIVERSE CITY FROM ITSELF (THE MAFIA CHAMPIONSHIP)



    Welcome to Season 8 of the Mafia Championship!

    An international forum-based tournament for Mafia players from all over the world




    Hosted By: Our automated @Mafia Host w/ @Beck providing flavor
    Start Date: June 14th, 2021
    Start of Day/End of Day: 9 PM EDT
    Phase Lengths: 48/24
    Elimination Mechanics: Deadline Elimination (person with most votes is eliminated at the end of the deadline). In case of a tie, one of the tied players will randomly be eliminated. Sleep 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 miselimination 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: 150 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).

    2x Mafia Goons
    1x Mafia Roleblocker
    1x Town Motion Detector
    1x 1-Shot Town Vigilante (n2+)
    1x Town Doctor
    9x Vanilla Townie

    Flips are alignment only.

    Relevant mechanics info:


    • Day start.
    • Majority elimination is enabled Day 2+, but majority is not required at any point for the elimination.
    • Tied votes will result in a player being eliminated at random from among the tied players.
    • No outside communication. I.e. you may not contact the other players outside of the thread (unless you are Mafia and wish to speak with your teammates).
    • Phase Lengths and Deadlines will be up to the players themselves (I’ll organize your representative into a game with deadlines that suit their preferences).
    • Thread is locked during Night Phases.
    • Votes are automatically locked in at LYLO.
    • Mafia factional kills are assigned. They can be tracked, watched, roleblocked, etc. (In this setup, that means they display as an action to the Motion Detector action.)
    • Mafia share a factional Night Kill, which is a single standard shot for their faction. The mafia factional kill is mandatory.
    • Mafia may communicate at any time.
    • Each individual player may make a maximum of 150 posts per day phase (this restriction is lifted 2 hours before day end).
    • The game will have a host to oversee everything and make sure everyone’s following the code of conduct, but otherwise the game is completely automated (automatic votecounts, thread locks and reveals alignments automatically, the bot receives and processes actions, etc.).

Submit your Night Action each night using the form below the game thread. You may change your target as many times as you want. The last action submitted will be used.

    If no Mafia submit an action, a player will be picked at random from the living non-Mafia players.



    Mafia Roleblocker

    As Mafia Roleblocker, you have access to the Roleblocking Night Action. Roleblocking another player prevents them from being able to successfully use any Night Action that they might have that night. You will not learn whether your target had a Night Action.

You cannot target the same player on consecutive nights.

    If you do not submit an action, you will forego your action on that night.

You will not learn what type of Night Action was used on or by your target or who used those actions. Submit your Night Action each night using the form below the game thread. You may change your target as many times as you want. The last action submitted will be used.

    You can act on Cycle 2+ in this game.

    X-Shot

    The X-Shot modifier limits the number of times you can use your Night actions. If you spend all of your shots then you will not be able to use Night actions anymore.

    You have 1 shots at the start of the game.

    REPRESENTING: webDiplomacy

    NATIONALITY: Australian

    STARTED PLAYING MAFIA (YEAR): 2019

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: WebDiplomacy

    BIO:

    Let's start with some stats to give you a glimpse of how amazing I am:
    8 games played
    37.5% winrate
    37.5% survival rate
    37.5% playing as town rate
    25% winrate as mafia except I died early and didn't do much in that game
    50% last surviving mafia member rate
    50% first killed mafia member rate but let's not talk about that
    100% survival rate as town

    In case you hadn't noticed, I'm not the most intimidating presence, especially statistically. It took me 6 games to really find my feet, but my last two games have been outstanding (read: less awful). For example, this quote concerning me:

    "Bob is terrible as scum, right?"
    I only played with him when he subbed in as scum and was killed pretty quick after not doing much, so I don't know. But honestly I would be absolutely shocked if he were this good.

    Spoiler alert, I was scum. And I only got caught in the end due to a large number of mech clears. And also horribly misplaying twice on the mechanics side of the game. And also accidentally suiciding at night lol. And last game as 3P I towned hard enough that mafia tried to NK me (3P was NK immune) and then outted me because they were too scared I would win otherwise. (Spoiler alert, I wouldn't, I had played the role poorly enough mechanically that I was a fair way off winning).

    It's been a few games since I've played town so I may be a bit rusty, but I probably have some better scumhunting instincts now. As scum I can probably put on a pretty good show of being town, mechs permitting. You can expect to see thought dumps, tone reads, sarcasm, a refusal to participate in most mechs discussion and poor PR decisions (if that's what role I roll). I haven't decided whether I'll use capital letters this game or not.

    BIO:

    “What up, I’m Ren, I’m 15, and I’m writing Bun’s bio because they never $%#!in’ learned how to write.”
    In all seriousness, I’m a bit lazy so instead of writing out a paragraph myself about how cool they are and their various accomplishments and accolades, I’ve elected to make a bunch of other people do it for me.

    "They make a mean batch of parking lot waffles and wolf reads"
    -Feffy

    "The personification of be gay, do crime"
    -Pawn Lelouch

    "sometimes im good and sometimes i get peeked n1 by mistyx or forgotten about"
    -Bunnelby

    "bun is a part of the explorers of sky, so they must be good, right? also i heard the bee has a gun."
    - vanity.

    "Why does the bee have a gun? Because it randed vig again. Hope it is of your alignment"

    - Apogee

    "bun try rolling town"

    BIO:

    Last year, my girlfriend broke up with me in the middle of my Champs game, causing me to step away and ease the pressure on a wolf in my crosshairs. One of my greatest regrets. I’m here this year in hopes of making up for that. My relationship status, I mean. Hi, I’m Chilly. I’m 27 and I like puppies, long walks on nature trails, and preferably not getting killed at the end of the day.

    Will hero-shoot for food!
    Considering the length of time spent and number of games playing mafia, you would think I'd be a better player. I enjoy the camaraderie of scumming and the detective work of towning. It's why mason is my favorite role.

    BIO:

    He sat there on the crumbling hilltop, staring listlessly into the sky. His bones ache. His muscles tire. His soul weeps. He thought he would be able to find peace out here in this wasteland. Perhaps find himself. Or maybe it was all a mask to escape the pain from failures of the past. Once in a while he thought of the accolades he had earned and the plaudits given to him by voices of repute. But those were all minor accomplishments that belied the weak and battered soul that resided underneath. “Never again,” he said to himself quite often when his mind went down these rabbit trails.

    It was all he could think as the message delivered by carrier pigeon whipped in his hand from the emphatic breeze. Despite his desire to stay away, the call needed to be answered by someone. Few others had the wherewithal to take up the challenge.

    He sighed deeply after days of contemplation, feeling he’d regret his decision. He slowly rose to his feet, the tattering cloak barely covering his ankles. And with a flick of his wrists, he draws the hood over his head and turns around to leave this wasteland. He told himself that he wasn’t going in seeking glory, but deep inside he felt a fire beginning to spark into existence.

    BIO:
    I'm a very instinctive intuitive player, I have been described as very difficult to read and grow more powerful as the game gets longer. I'm much better at mafia than town. he community has retired these memes in order to not run them into the ground, but the ancient wisdom of the forums is "Never trust stoutfish, always vote stoutfish"


    14) tabitha



    REPRESENTING: LA Gaming Circle

    NATIONALITY: USA

    STARTED PLAYING MAFIA (YEAR): 4

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: None

    BIO:

    "Tabs Tabs Tabs. What I can say? I've never met a player with more passion for the game. She'd take an 8-hour train ride weekend after weekend just to get the reps in. She'll travel the West Coast convention scene in search of the next match. Some cons don't even have official games. You'll just find Tabitha in the hallway slinging accusations with a rag-tag group she spent all day rounding up.

    Tabitha's got more than just passion though. She's got skill. Her ability to play the game from both sides with efficiency and instinct is remarkable. She often won't live through the first night, but if she does good luck chopping her until you're staring her down in the Final 3 and praying she's on your side. How her skills will transfer to forum play I don't know, but it'll be a blast for anyone reading." --Sheppard

    HAVE PLAYED MAFIA ON THE FOLLOWING SITES: Personality Cafe/Mafia Cafe, Mafia Universe, The Syndicate, Mafia.gg, Forum of Lies, MiniMafia, Mafia451

    BIO:

    Hi, I’m Thunal and I’m a mafia playing cat that enjoys math, mafia, and cats. My favorite ice cream flavor is mint chocolate chip. My favorite role to play is mason because I like having someone I know is town to bounce my ideas off of. One of my favorite mafia moments is when I got converted to the mafia team N1 because of how correct I was D1. Another of my favorite mafia moments was being in a 3 way masonry with two players I enjoyed talking to.

    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.
    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.
    • Don't ever refer to private communications with the Game Host.
    • If you should ever require a replacement, PM 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 SEMIFINAL or FINALE game, your community's backup will NOT take their place. Instead the next person who was in line to receive a semifinal or finale spot will take their place.
    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 500-600 posts per 24 hours during the early stages of the game in qualifier games, and likely more in semifinal/finale games. 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.


    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.

    Finally, we encourage you to at least skim some of the season 7 games to get a sense of how the games usually play out: https://www.mafiauniverse.com/forums...nship-Season-7

    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 failed.
    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 eliminating 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.

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

    HOW TO VOTE

    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].
    HOW TO SUBMIT 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.
    HOW TO REQUEST 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.

    OTHER SPECIAL FEATURES

    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.

    Welcome, spectators from every walk of life and Internet forum.

    My name is Beck, and I will be your fabulous, humble Host. I have been a member of Mafia Universe for many years and have hosted many games. I've even participated in a Mafia Championship or two myself -- I did OK.



    Thank you for having me. I am accompanied by the cuddly, damp @Manatee.

    Say hello, Manatee.



    Manatee and I have hosted and participated in games of Paint in the past. Manatee is a fan of colourful pictures and Photoshop, and dislikes small enclosures and motor boats.

    Together, we have combined our talents for sick lyrics and imagery that could make you cry, to tell you a tale of severe importance. This is not just any story, but one brought to you by our Season 8, Game 7 Champions.

    That's right! We tasked each Champion with the challenge of submitting to us one to two nouns and/or adjectives, and we did the rest. Of the many submissions we received, we narrowed the list down to our favourite 15.


    Alcohol
    Blue
    Cats
    Cheese
    Chicken
    Colony
    Ephemeral
    Furry
    Obliteration
    Payment
    Peaceful
    Powerful
    Sociological
    Spaceship
    Tasty

    With these words alone, we created a magical world of crime and heroism for you to explore. If you enjoy this story, you’re welcome. If you don’t, it was the players’ ideas, and totally not our fault.

    Take our hand/flipper, and follow us. Heroes Assemble!

    Introducing Your Do-Gooders

    Find out more about our cast of characters below. We have more information we will share in-time, on a case-by-case and need-to-know basis. Of course, if anyone dies, that might be when. But I cannot confirm that yet. Maybe. Who knows. Nobody will die, though, because they're all mature, well-established and thoughtful do-gooders, who cannot be bought.

    Captain Colony

    John Smith, AKA Captain Colony, accidentally stumbled upon a time machine after crossing the Delaware River. Curious, he strapped it to his wrist and teleported forward in time 200+ years.

    Cats

    Simon, Lucky, Mr. Mittens, Bean, Daisy, Bubbles, Kiwi, CocoPuss, AKA Cats, are cats. Little is known about their true identities or their power(s).

    Count Chicken

    Dennis Barker, AKA Count Chicken, claims he knows the secret to the universe. This has not been confirmed (or denied). While he often keeps to himself, he can sometimes be heard mumbling oddities at inconvenient times, and fails in social situations more often than he would like to admit.

    Knight Blue

    Jan Bothi XXXIII (33), AKA Knight Blue, found themselves on Earth through grave circumstances we cannot yet detail here, and fell in love with Knights. Upon this realization, he became a hero to model his favorite justice-seeking Knights.

    Peaceful Prince

    Powerful Princess

    Christina Ful, AKA Peaceful Princess, was raised by the world-renowned Super Hero Duo, father Fighting Fire and mother, Incredible Ice. Born with a twin brother, she hopes to carry on her family's legacy using power and conviction.

    Say Cheese!

    Katelyn Leibovitz, AKA Say Cheese! found an old camera in her grandmother’s attic, soon becoming a local hero at a young age. She rollerblades to those in need and freezes enemies in place with the snap of her powerful photography.

    Sociological Seer

    EB-349-A, AKA Sociological Seer, was created in a lab designed to help humanity solve problems. After the lab lost its funding the Sociological Seer was let go. It computed that fighting crime was the best way to fulfil its original programming.

    Spaceship Cowboy

    Yomoxo Equin, AKA Spaceship Cowboy, is from a space-race not of this galaxy. He arrived on Earth attempting to wrangle a stray meteor shower, and now spends his time searching for love.

    Tasty Fingers

    Hunter Vinder, AKA Tasty Fingers, discovered his love for food and hunting through a college hunting and cooking class he took because a friend didn’t want to take it alone. He hunts evil- doers to pay for his massive appetite for justice and BBQ ribs.

    Tha'toglock the Elder God of Payment

    Tha'toglock the Elder God of Payment, AKA Tha'toglock the Elder God of Payment, after traveling the cosmos collecting near infinite wealth, arrived on Earth to do the same only to realize he was underaged in human years. Terrified of the American prison system he chooses to make deals granting his cosmic powers to mortals in exchange for earthly treasures.

    The Alcohol Thaumaturgist

    Smeezel Humbert, AKA The Alcohol Thaumaturgist, was once a well respected brewer within Universe City, back in the day. In a taste-testing gone wrong, his wife and family were killed by an evil wizard, so he sought revenge. He often squabbles with Knight Blue.

    The Ephemeral Shinobi

    Juniper Weeping, AKA The Ephemeral Shinobi, was born into a family of ninjas through ancient Japanese magic many, many moons ago. They are the last surviving member of it’s clan, and will protect life at any cost, as they believe it is fleeting.

    The Furry

    Brittany Murphy, AKA The Furry, discovered in 4th grade that she could control her own and other people’s hair telekinetically, shortly before growing a horrible un-shavable mustache. Hopefully it will go away soon, but until then she's constantly embarrassed by it. Please don't bring it up.

    Total Obliteration

    Todd Anderson, AKA Total Obliteration, discovered his power at a young age. Since, he has amassed a massive debt through use of his power, destroying entire city blocks at a time. He wears a jacket covered in ads to try and offset the cost of his destruction.

    Chapter 1 - Meddling at Manatee Manor

    Officer: Hansen, there's another incident at the corner of High and Fifth, we're meeting up with Wolf Boy and Thingyman to take a look.

    Beck: Dammit, again? I would help, but I'm headed out to The Aquarium. Y'know.

    Officer: It's that time of the month?

    Beck: It is. But this time, it will be different. I've been planning this conversations for a long time, and I'm going in prepared. When I get back we'll finally be in control.

    I grabbed a folder off my desk and opened it up.




    Oops, wrong folder. That's my file. Life as Dr. Prof. Detective can get extremely busy, between the operations, the instructions, and the investigating.

    I grabbed another folder. Yes, this is the one I need. Motwell Gluggerous, my arch-nemesis.




    I set out to visit Micromanaging Manatee and the Manatee Men at his Manatee Manor located deep in the back of The Aquarium. There, I would confront his crime syndicate and begin Universe City's respiration project, finally...

    ~~~

    My footsteps filled the empty Aquarium halls as I approached a large door. I pushed it ajar like I had many times before, and there he lay.

    Micromanaging Manatee and The Manatee Men: Ah, Hansen. Or should I say, Dr. Prof. Detective? What a pleasant surprise!

    Beck: I have no time for your schmoozing, Micromanaging Manatee and The Manatee Men. You know why I'm here. Universe City's crime has been rising steadily, and I know you're to blame!

    Micromanaging Manatee and The Manatee Men: Oh, glub glub! But have you any proof? And even if it were little, old me, how could you stop me?

    *Micromanaging Manatee and The Manatee Men takes a long puff from his kelp cigar, smitten with himself.*

    Beck: I won't stop you. Alone, that is. But I've assembled a cast of Heroes across our galaxy to save Universe City from your slimy fins.

    *Micromanaging Manatee and The Manatee Men takes another long puff from his kelp cigar, and rolls his head back in laughter.*

    Micromanaging Manatee and The Manatee Men: You stupid, stupid fool. You see, Dr. Prof. Detective, or whatever you like to call yourself. You're a Loser. You shall never win. How do you know your Heroes can even be trusted?! How do you know I haven't gotten to them first?! You would be surprised how little kelp it costs to buy a Hero's allegiance. But I suppose you will discover that yourself soon enough!

    My mind began to spin. Was I doing the right thing? Or is he bluffing? Could I actually trust the Heroes I had meticulously assembled? Or would I end up having to... Save Universe City from itself?

    So far he got me right and backtracked the assessment when I was doing >rand scum meta posts, so I'm calling him tentative town.

    I don't have a read on anyone else, due to low content.

    Don't disagree.
    She seems to be eager to get into the game, but I'm not as sold as you seem to be.
