Welcome to MafiaManiac, a site is dedicated to the growth and expansion of the online forum game of Mafia.

Mafia is that party game you may have played, where there is a mafia (informed minority) trying to overtake an entire village and the villagers (uninformed Majority) are trying to stop them. We play these mafia games over several days in our forum and we have people from all over the world playing them. These mafia games can be themed from movies, real life situations and almost anything you can think of! Mafia involves a lot of creative strategy, making you think on your toes. You'll be forced trust your gut, check your logic, and deceive or be deceived. If you think you can handle playing, here are a few links you should definitely check out.

Ummm... I don't know how I feel about you voting on my first thing (if that means what I assume it means). Luckily I don't know enough about Skyrim to risk that. We good. http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/thumbsup.gif

Hirkala Are there any restrictions as to what Vignar can put in his messages? (Including those related to the use of encryption)


No hard encryption. Simple codes are fine, but no encryption keys or anything like that.


Where exactly is the line between hard and soft encryption? Sorry if it's common knowledge here, but I forgot to ask after Amber III ended.
Anything that can't reasonably be decoded by a human being?
Or anything that converts text to and from something like this:
051403182516200504

(The word "ENCRYPTED" converted to A=01 - Z=26
Obviously an actual code of this nature would have the corresponding numbers randomized)



Either way, Vignar could benefit from passing a code around, assuming he manages to give it to 2 goodies. (Although using it himself might get him RID killed)
Another possibility that comes to mind is that he could hand out a unique code to each person he messages, and ask them to claim an RID using it. If the code is strong enough, goodies have no reason to not oblige him that I can think of, and baddies can't even see what roles have already been claimed, making them more likely to get caught in the act.

Thoughts on random-blocking?
Hirkala, For the goodie and baddie block, is it announced which is which in the NP? Or does it just say "X was blocked?"
If we can tell between the goodie and baddie block, then that obviously changes things and adds some pseudo-spy potential, I think.

I don't see any reason for the Dragonborn to hold onto their role spy, so it should probably just be used right away.

As for what the other roles can do, I'm not seeing much that sticks out as easy to overlook. ...Probably because I'm overlooking it myself.


If it requires using anything other than going back to the message from Vignar to translate a message, it's not allowed.

The Blocks WILL show which role blocked which player.


Beware the Scotch of Clumsiness!!!

Through power, I gain victory

Hirkala what about things like smiley codes or "use the alphabetical number of the first letter of the third word in your last sentence to indicate the number of your role in the roster?" This is how messages have been commonly used from what I've seen.

Machina I think both goodie block and Dragonborn should abstain unless they pick up a decent read during the night. The first has a much higher chance of screwing up other goodies and the second has limited actions.

I can see your point for the block, but I think it would be better for the dragonborn to gain information earlier rather than later, as the spy doesn't really gain any value later in the game if held onto IMO. And if useful information is gained, dying before it can be put to use would be bad.
Even if the target dies later, that's still a role they know for sure is in the graveyard.

I have a bad habit of either being the d1 lynch target (though never get lynched d1) or the n1 (in this case n2 i guess) nightkill.

You can kill me some other game?

Hmm, I thought we gathered here to share meme's http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/shrug.gif that's what themes Mafias are famous for ...

Now I feel like I can't sleep anymore. Must be enemies nearby.


... A red bird of my desire came and sat upon my shoulder, and I wrote a note and tied it to its leg and sent it off into the west. It said, "I'll be back," and it was signed by me.
... I saw my earlier selves as different people, acquaintances I had outgrown. I wondered how I could ever have been some of them.
... *shrug* Good-bye and hello, as always.

Meh, the N2 spy has the potential to be much more informative than a random spy on N1. But it can be used on N1 just to cycle through it.
