Thank you for the info to the extra account. It may come in handy, I got two extra accounts now.

Game starts September 5th after the holiday. I know a few people will be busy so I don't want that to disrupt the game. I'm waiting on 3 of my people to get their posts approved and we're good. 18 players. Night 0 start. I will throw up the thread soon but wanted everyone to know that it's high time we get this show on the road.

Will you send out role-pm-s early or just before the official start?

I thought you might ask that Sabrar :lol:

I'ma send out role PMs early, maybe even today depending on how much time I got tonight. I have a bit of hesitance because I have two guys who can't post yet, but I imagine their posts will go through by the 5th and worst case scenario they can utilize the alt accounts we have.

As for Night starts, I personally prefer Day starts, but yes, there is a large group of mafia/werewolf players who prefer Night starts. It's common in a fair amount of places.

Does Night start include killing powers?

There are setups that do this but it's usually done with a fixed group where the choice of the victim is more meaningful. Otherwise you're just removing a random player from the game before s/he got to play and that is just plain cruel in my opinion.

As HILARIOUS as I find N0 kills...

Everyone will be alive at the beginning of D1!

Good news y'all. I'm just waiting on one last player to obtain posting capability and everyone's accounted for. Expect role PMs sometime this week, possibly tonight.

I'm really excited about N0! I got my start on epicmafia back in the day and having info to start on D1 made all the difference.

Cool, so can you submit night actions if it's a night start? What if your night action heals/kills someone? Does it take effect?

Oh man, did someone say EpicMafia? Good times indeed. You just took me waaay back with naming that site Madge.

Peaceful Whale, non-lethal night actions can indeed be sent/used during Night 0 unless the player is told otherwise. N0 doubles as a good time to throw any and all questions one might have about their role at me/Rajam; I'll say as much when we kick things off.

Just read the rules for the crossover mafia game and super excited to discover what fun mechanics it contains. Can't wait to get my role PM!

This one really surprised me:

If deadline is reached without a majority lynch decided, there will be no lynch.


So, you need to come to consensus. No voting for someone with no other votes. Interesting.

@Madge: it was already mentioned before. What was also mentioned in that thread but not present in the rules (unless I'm blind) that flips would be posted immediately after the lynch and not in the morning, so night-actions can be adjusted accordingly.

No, everyone's welcome to post in Gojoe during the game. That rule is meant to bar players from talking with each other in ways inconsistent with the spirit of the game


Thanks for making this explicit. I'm not sure if other sites have the same arrangement for behind the scenes info like this one.

No problem.

xkcd is the only site I know of that has a Gojoe thread. I've seen others where communication between mafia is released postgame as well as a spectator chat, but yeah, xkcd is unique in its ongoing private discussions.

great, I've got an ablilty, I can choose who I'm masoned with. I should have read more comics, I've got no idea who I am. Oh well, in town, I'll probably pair with Sabar or Bessie. Added bonus, if they aren't town to cop, I won't pair with them, and I'll know that they're scum.

Crossover Mafia:
Spoiler:
I'm maintaining my 50-50 town/scum ratio. 3 Mafia seems quite few in a game with 20 players so I'm assuming there's another scum team as well. I get to absorb the lynched player's main power but it will be publicly announced. Weird role, have to ask my scum-buddy about its previous incarnations on the other board.

Crossover mafia
Spoiler:
I am Samus a mafia roleblocker. No night kikl though :/

Ice Beam: Each Night, you may choose a target. That target will be unable to use any active abilities that Night. Passive abilities and other abilities used on them that allow them to do actions will still take effect – only the active abilities they possess will be blocked. They will be notified that they have been roleblocked.

Scan: Once during the game, you may scan a player and will receive their role name.

Possess: Each Night, including Night 0 before the game, you may choose a player. This player is then added to the top of your "Possess" list. This ability is considered a "killing ability" for all intents and purposes.

Upon your death, that Night (following the Night if lynched, current Night if killed during the Night) you will move to infect the town player at the top of your "Possess List"; if the ability fails for any reason (e.g., they are not town, are immune to Night Actions, bulletproof, etc.), it will move down the list until an acceptable target is met. If you die and do not have an acceptable target on the list, this ability will fail.

The possessed player will retain all of their abilities but will be a part of your mafia faction. There will be no public notification that this has occurred, but people may guess given the role name!

Crossover Mafia:
Spoiler:
Think I'd have much rather have been scum in such a large game. Not sure how I'm going to be able to keep track of everybody! I'm a town vote limiter - once per game, as a night action, I can select two players, and assuming that I understood my role right, players will only be able to vote for those two players on the next day. No idea how I'm going to use this yet.

I get to be a lyncher again, this time I know to not claim 3p, especially this role. It's basically lyncher that has to get it's target 3 times or survive, and it has a slowly expanding list of targets. Seems simple enough.

So, I'm Mira from Guardian Legend (no idea who I am…), Town Bus Driver (swaps two players so that actions directed at the one affect the other). I can use the power N0 and self-target, but since I want town to have good results, I withheld for N0.

Not an easy power to use effectively…

Hallo all!

I just found all my old mafia setups and just started writing a new one. Would anybody be up for co-modding a flavoured medium with me? I may be somewhat unreliable so don't want to forget and waste everyone's time.

Thanks and missing you all :)

Hello lynx, it’s been a while, welcome back! I would love to co mod one of your games! Or if there is another volunteer to co mod that isn’t interested in playing, I would (probably) sign up to play. We have a large game starting this week, and we’re not a big enough community anymore to support multiple games. A new game would probably need to wait a few weeks to get enough players (the large game will have 1 week cycles). Feel free to hit me up if you need a co mod.
