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.

Ok... I decided to read the OP.

Questions:

I assume night ends 1 minute past 11:59pm on Wednesday. Correct?
Is Emmeryn's vote always x3?
If Emmeryn's vote is redirected, the x3 is also?
Trap saves and blocks?
What happens in the event of a tie vote?


Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity - Hanlon's Razor
Sufficiently advanced cluelessness is indistinguishable from malice - Clarke's Law
I always tell the truth, even when I lie - Tony Montana
What' chu talkin' about, Willis? - Arnold Jackson

The world is my oyster. It gave me diarrhetic shellfish poisoning.

Yes.
It can be 1x or 3x, apologies.
If it's by a vote redirect yes.
Yes

Alright so, strategy time. Gonna include even my own role in here for WIFoM purposes.

Not much to say on Chrom. RID people you don't think are gonna die, I guess.

If Robin rolls a block, kill, or trap, he probably shouldn't use them N1. (Though a case could be made for the trap, see Flavia) Can we agree random blocking/trapping in general = bad?
Though, I suppose it could give Lucin-- I mean, Marth, some information. So what say the rest of you?
Are the blocks even useful at all for anything other than preventing Gangrel from getting the double RID kill? Baddie kills aren't carried, Gangrel's redirect has the highest priority(?) I assume Aversa's action is used during the day, and Validar has a block himself.

Not much to say about our masked friend. Spy people. Keep track of who's claiming/hinting what, see if it lines up with their visits.
If someone claims Bassilo, Flavia or Emmeryn and their target wasn't trapped/killed, or in the case of an Em claim, they visited someone, out them. The 1 for 1 trade with Gangrel is worth it. (Assuming the fakeclaim isn't Validar himself, in which case it's not even a trade and we don't have to worry about RID stuff anymore. Though Aversa could still be an issue for Em claiming.)

As for Frederick, just don't block anything unless we decide blocks are actually useful somehow. You got the short end of the stick here, I think.

Lissa just do whatever, unless you have a really strong read on who's going to die tonight.

Emmeryn needs to lay low no matter what pretty much, I think? Unless Validar is ever the last bad alive. Don't split the vote or otherwise make yourself obvious.

I'm split on Flavia's trap. On one hand, since blocks and redirects are announced, useful info could be gained with some early random trapping. But it also is much more likely to just disable a goodie without yielding any useful info.

And I don't think I need to explain why Bassilo shouldn't just randomly axe someone in the face tonight.

Great. Now I'm wondering if you actually did this.

As you should. I would question the skill of anyone who didn't take this chance to do a bit of poking and try to get a read on me.
But I will say I opted not to leave a hint as to my role in there this early, so there's no need to try and dig through it all in order to find something suggesting I'm Lissa and you should stab me.
...Besides, even if I was, maybe I'd be self-healing. (Wait, Hachi can Lissa self-heal?)
I'd rather not set Gangrel up for a an easy double kill later down the line with my first post.

Hachi when the OP says "Blocks will be told if successful" does that mean they'll be told whether the player that they targeted for a block would have otherwise used a night action that got stopped by blocking? Or just whether the block went through (like it wasn't stopped by one of the other blocks) regardless of whether the target was trying to use an action that night?

Machina Blocks might be able to give that sort of weak spy info. But yeah N1 the odds of stopping a baddie action vs the odds of stopping a useful goodie ability might be bad enough to not warrant using it anyway.

They'll be told if it went though. The user having a night action is irrelevant.

You should be.
This setup looks far simpler and I know what sort of rules I'm operating under better. You can bet I'm gonna try and play more aggressively this game. Plus, I think Lucina and Robin are going to leave much to be desired in lieu of a more reliable spy.
As I've always said in other mafia-style games, a passive town is a losing town

And I'm going to start by asking both you and maurice if you have anything to add to what I just said, rather than simply throw some shade around.

It's nice to see some incisive N1 strategizing instead of the usual random banter. Time will tell if it's genuine goodies coordinating to solve this thing or if it's baddies attempting to obfuscate their roles. http://mafiamaniac.org/smile/inspect.gif


A good programmer is someone who always looks both ways before crossing a one-way street.

Two novels can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other involves orcs.
