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.

We all know that Robert De Niro is a great actor. He doesn't portray characters on film...he creates characters. Literally. Creates them. They exist in a dimension that most of us can't access. Only he is able to tap into them and bring them to life. However, they interact with each other. While you may think that they would all get along, you would be mistaken to do so. A collection of the biggest egos and most outlandish personalities ever put on celluloid,Robert De Niro's characters have recently begun to jostle for control of his legacy.

BADDIES - GOODIE TWO SHOES: Believe that Robert De Niro should be remembered for his fine acting, even when he portrays everyday people and family men. WINCON - Gain a majority that can not be overcome. Have BTSC and a NightKill. The NightKill can be traded for two attempts at a RID Kill, but not two nights in a row. If either attempt fails, whether due to Indy or because wrong, both fail. RID Kills can be saved. This does not count as a failure.

Michael Vronsky - The Deer Hunter - Vote Manip. Can make any other player's vote = x0 or x2

Donald Rimgale - Backdraft - Uses knowledge of fire to stop target's action. Block

Jack Byrnes - Meet the Parents - Selects a target. If Jack is spied he will be told the target's role and the spy will be told that Jack is the target's role. On subsequent nights Jack can choose whether to be seen as the previous role or the current target. Forger/Passive Spy

Pat Solitano, Sr. - Silver Linings Playbook - OTDG, inherits action of any dead Gangster. Chooses at any time after a Gangster has died.

GOODIES - DELINQUENTS AND PSYCHOPATHS: Believe that De Niro's best work was when he played characters who existed on the edge of society. WINCON - kill all baddies and Indies

Jimmy Conway - Goodfellas - Has connections with influential people and can prevent actions from happening. Block

Sam "Ace" Rothstein - Casino - Casino executive with mafia ties. Dice Roll (1.Spy 2. Save 3. Block 4. RID Kill 5. Kill 6. Reroll {odd = none, even = choice})

Travis Bickle - Taxi Driver - Uses his cab to tail his target. Choice between Target and Follow Spy*

Jake La Motta - Raging Bull - Boxer. Save. Can not save same player twice unless all live Goodies have been saved

Al Capone - The Untouchables - Has connections all over the city who provide him with information on people. Role Spy*

Max Cady - Cape Fear - Unstable killer. Kill

Vito Corleone - The Godfather II - Vote manip. Can make any other player's vote = x0 or x2

Neil McCauley - Heat - Burglar that can get into people's homes and leave messages. Messenger. 200 characters. Smiley's = 1 character

The Creature (Frankenstein's Monster) - Mary Shelley's Frankenstein - From Dr. Frankenstein's lab, the Creature has come across doses of L-Dopa. Each night, he targets a player to give a dose to. Further explanation in the Indy RD. ODTG can take a dead player into Dr. Frankenstein's lab and revives them. The creature can not die until N2.

Gil Renard - The Fan - Trap - Selects a player and kidnaps them. They do not act at night and are saved from Night Kills. They will be given BTSC for the DAY (any other BTSC will be lost). The target can not speak on the main thread nor be voted for during the day. Gil may execute the target. The choice is made in the BTSC and may be changed up to the end of the day. BTSC's will be saved and accessible by Gil, but he may choose to "delete" them. If Gil chooses Jack Byrnes he will die at the end of the night and Jack will gain access to all saved BTSC, unless Gil is saved.

* the Goodie spies will get the results of the other spy's action and not their own so long as the other spy was alive when the night started. Otherwise, they will get their own result.

INDY: Would not mind if De Niro's work was just forgotten, much like him. WINCON - Successfully RID two goodies.

Leonard Lowe - Awakenings - 1) each night chooses a goodie role. If the role is dead they will receive only that player's name. If the role is alive they will receive that player's name plus a random alive goodie and alive baddie.
2) RID Zombify - each night may choose a RID. Target must be a Goodie. If the RID is correct, then that player will be moved into a "catatonic state". They will not be notified, but Leonard will be given a success notice. It will be as if that player is dead. Beginning that night, they cannot be acted on nor act. All actions of those types will return as a failure. Votes on them will not count. The only action that can be done on them is for The Creature to give them a dose of L-Dopa. This will "awaken" them for one cycle, night and day. If L-Dopa is given the same night as a successful RID then the catatonic state is delayed one cycle. If Indy wins then the game continues but Leonard goes back into a catatonic state. If a RID Kill is tried on a catatonic player it will fail. Action 1 can be blocked, action 2 can not. Can not die until D2.

Each player is expected to participate during the Day Phase. Therefore at the beginning of each day phase players eligible to be lynched will start with 5 votes on them. Posting reduces the votes thusly:

1 Post - 3 votes
2 posts - 1 vote
3+ posts - 0 votes

Posting the roster and adding a vote, without saying anything else will not count as a vote. Posts within 10 minutes of each other will count as 1 post, unless they are addressing different posts quoted within the post.

Tie rules -
1. Fewest posts up to 3
2. Most votes on previous days
3. Roll of 20 sided die. Highest number dies.
4. Nobody dies

Kills are not blocking. RID Kill can be saved.

The Prologue should clear up which roles have which abilities. In any regard the OP of the game thread will be more explicit.

Content Hidden

They will be assigned the following abilities. The roles and abilities will be revealed with the OP/RD's.

Content Hidden

I will be revealing only positive actions in the Night Posts. So no blocks and as usual no spies, unused saves etc.

HOST - maurice
1. MissKitten (please confirm)
2. EDM (please confirm)
6. Akriti (please confirm)

Right now I have roles and abilities paired up. The Prologue will give strong hints as to who does what, the OP of the game thread will be clear. The Prologue also will have character fleshing out.
maurice - Night Club Owner
Cocktail Waitress
Private Dick
Cop 1
Cop 2
Cheating Wife
Her Boyfriend
Rival Club Owner
My ex flame
A Street Thug
My Driver
A News Reporter
A "Dancer"
A Street Performer
A Wino
A Boxer
A Police Captain

They will be assigned the following abilities. The roles and abilities will be revealed with the OP/RD's.

It appears as if this is a 15 v 4 game. In fact it is a 12 v 5 v 2 game. Two "goodies" are in fact Indies. One "goodie" is in fact a baddie. The baddie RD will be revealed with the Day 3 post. The Indies will be revealed as well. It will be described in more detail in the Indy section.

Goodies: WinCon- Kill all baddies and Indies

Spy - Faction/Role
RID Kill
Reverse Die Roll*
Dice Roll
Baddie Subset - Gives player list, returned # of baddies in list
Trap - choose between Night Only or Night/Day
Vote Manip - 7(?) extra votes that may be added to other players' votes during the course of the game.
Vote Redirect - Votes on player may be redirected elsewhere
Role Copy - per night
Add to Post

* - a randomized target will be selected, player chooses from 5 actions to take on the target.
**- Once during the game, the Medium will select a dead player and gain BTSC with them. That player will lose access to Ghost BTSC. Until this point Ghost BTSC will not contain roles or secret information. The identity of the player will not be known in-game.

Baddies: Have BTSC (all 5) and a Night Kill WinCon- Gain majority

RID Kill - chooses N1 whether to use only on odd nights or even nights
Spy - target
Self Vote Manip - x0, x1, x2

Indies: Have BTSC WinCon - partially secret. When the secret part is complete, the remaining WinCon will be revealed, as will the RD's of the Indies. Have a secret ability related to the secret part of the WinCon that will be swapped out for an additional ability once the secret part of the WinCon is complete. That ability will be revealed as well.
On any night either Indy can use their role or swap it for one of the following abilities (both Indies may not choose the same ability)
Oracle - ask the host a single yes/no question
Modified Additive Vote Manip - to a non Indy's vote may add a factor of -1, 0 or 1 @100% probability, or add +2, +3, + 4 at 1/2, 1/4 or 1/8 probability respectively.

I will be attempting to reveal only positive actions in the Night Posts. So no blocks and as usual no spies, unused saves etc.

Props to Brandon for initiating the Medium role idea. http://www.mafiamaniac.net/img/Smilies/thumbsup.gif
