For a third week in a row, the Philosophic Basis of Practical Governance Society held a meeting with only Connie, Jen, and Chuck, leaving their conference room looking pitifully empty. The other students at Eastbridge University simply didn’t seem to understand how fascinating it could be to learn the intricacies of how and why ideas about how to run a state ended up being thwarted by real-world problems from the question of making guns or butter to outright corruption. But no more. This week, Connie decided to try to beef up attendance by offering free beer at their next meeting. So now Jen is preparing to host a dialogue on how Plato would have viewed the Electoral College with a crowd of twenty thousand undergrads.
Alas, Chuck carelessly allowed two of the kegs of beer to get warm while he was getting ready for the meeting. And serving warm beer at a time like this simply wouldn’t do. So the beer had to sort it out among themselves and weed out the warm ones, without knowing which other beers were warm or cold. Aside from themselves. Except the warm beers, which knew each other. Because that’s how it works. And there’s also an indy beer.
Baddies – BTSC, group NK, group tiebreaker (can add 0.5 votes to any player each day)
Wincon: Insurmountable majority
Wincon: Wipe out baddies and indy (if present (which it is))
Sam Adams: Kill + Role and Faction spy. All on the same target. Spies succeed only if kill succeeds.
Guinness: Save. Cannot target self, but can be redirected to self and end up self-saving.
Fat Tire: Redirect. Is told if he successfully redirects an action.
Sierra Nevada: Follow spy. If you follow Beep spy, you see the first target on his list. Does not see factional abilities (including RID machine gun if an indy is present).
Goose Island: Vote multiplier. x0-2 on anyone.
Corona: Beep spy. Find out if there’s one baddie among a group of three targets. If redirected, the first choice of three targets gets redirected.
Heinekin: Mimic. Name a player during the day and gain their ability for the next night/day cycle. Each player can only be mimic’ed once. Factional abilities (including RID machine gun if an indy is present) aren't copied.
Dos Equis: Inheritor. Gain the ability of the first player that dies. Does not affect your faction. Factional abilities (including RID machine gun if an indy is present) aren't copied.
Budweiser: Coroner. Learn the role of successfully NK-ed players.
Coors: Block. Appears in the NP. You’re told whether it successfully stops an action at night. It does prevent actions that would occur on the following day, but if that happens you will only be told going into the day phase that it did not stop a night action.
Shiner Bock: Messenger. 300 characters max counting spaces. Smilies count as the number of characters within and including the colon tags.
Grey roles are sir not appearing in this mafia since we have 9 players instead of 11.
There are 2 warm beers (baddies), 6 cold beers (goodies), and an indy.
Wincon: Last standing
Has one of the normal abilities, plus an ODTG RID machine gun: Name however many RIDs you want and if they’re all correct they all die. Unblockable, unredirectable, and unsaveable. But if any are incorrect then the kills all fail and you lose the ODTG.
In addition to the usual daytime lynch vote, there will also be night-phase votes where you vote for one of the roles in the game to have their faction revealed at the end of the night phase. Except the kill+spy role – that one will definitely be goodie if it’s in play (which it is) because otherwise it’d be way overpowered. The rest of the rules are pretty much the usual.
NP shows all kill attempts (except failed RID machine gun), needed saves, blocks.
(Mimic or) Inheritor performs an action that would appear in the NP, then it appears as being performed by the Mimic or Inheritor and not the copied role.
Lynch shows faction and not role.
Tie lynch rules: Baddies have a tiebreaker ability, but if they don't use it and it's a tie then no one dies. If there's a tie vote for faction reveal, then no role gets faction revealed.
