So, a long while back, I played this game with a group of people and it was like, super fun. I was kinda sad that the person running it ended up dropping out so we didn't get to see it through, but I've really been wanting to play this again, so I figured I'd try to run one myself, and hope people are interested.
So that all said, here's the rules!
In character roleplay is not required but is encouraged.
During the Action Phase, you may ask any dead players up to three questions divided (question length = 100 characters). The dead player may respond to each question(20 characters). This is done by P Ming the Mod with the question. Three per game, during the Action Phase, you may ask the moderator of the current game and ask 1 question about someone who is already dead. Questions against anyone who is currently alive will be ignored. The Moderator will not lie about what they tell you; the information is correct.
Three times per game, during the Dinner Phase, you may intimidate one player, preventing them from acting (challenging/being challenged) in duels. PM the Moderator to use this power. If you intimidate a player, the intimidated player will be announced at the beginning of the Challenge Phase.
During the Dinner Phase, you may blackmail one player. PM the Moderator to use this power. Blackmailed players must challenge during the Challenge Phase, or will die. Only the blackmailed player will know that they are blackmailed.
At the beginning of the Action Phase, you will be notified of the intended winner(s) of the accepted duel(s). Three times per game, during the Action Phase, you may change the winner of a duel. PM the Moderator to use this power. You may use this ability once on yourself.
When a player dies by non-execution your position on the duel/dance list is randomized. Once per game you may choose to entertain your fellow guests and force a skip of the current voting phase and preventing that the MAA Shot, Poisoner's Poison and the Current execution from taking place.
Once per voting phase, you may shoot one person. They will not survive the shot unless they are the Soldier. If you shoot the Soldier, the Soldier will kill you instead. You can only shoot losers of duels/dances. Additionally, you also gain an additional shooting every time you defeat a player in a duel or dance. The shooting is silent, meaning it does not reveal your role. You cannot store more than 1 shot at a time. You start off with one shot.
At the beginning of the Action Phase, you will be notified of the intended winner(s) of the accepted dance(s). Three times per game, during the Action Phase, you may change the winner of a dance. PM the Moderator to use this power. You may use this ability once on yourself.
You will be notified whenever the Blacksmith or the Musician interferes in a challenge. You will be notified of any secret plate switches. You will be notified of the original target for the poisoner. (Not post-switch)
You may poison a player's food during the Voting Phase. If they eat it, they will die during the dinner phase. PM the Moderator to use this power.
Whenever you guess a player's role, you may also submit a secondary guess to the moderator for the same player. If the secondary guess is correct, it will be displayed as your submitted guess, otherwise, your primary guess, whether correct or incorrect, will be displayed. Whenever you win a challenge, you may submit a third guess the following Dinner Phase.
Your vote counts as two during the Voting Phase. PM the moderators to cast your second vote secretly. Once per game, during the Voting Phase, you may force a vote. PM the Moderator to use this power.
Once per game, you may choose a player to magically kill. PM the Moderator to use this power. When you use your power, you will be revealed as the Sorcerer. There are no restrictions on when you may use this power, only that you cannot use it if you are one of the losers in a voting phase.
You are immune to poison. You will kill the MAA when he shoots you.
Each time you lose in a duel or dance, you move up two slots on the corresponding list. Each time you win in a duel or dance, you move up one slot in that list. Dead players count as being on the lists.
You may switch player's plates up to 5 times per dinner phase without their knowledge. PM the Moderator to use this power. If the poisoner dies, you will become the new poisoner.
And that's about it! The game will start when we have fifteen people, which I'll be adding to the OP as they come up. I really hope yall enjoy this game as much as I did!

Eh, the voting phase is the only true similarity, but yeah iirc it was inspired by such
don't feel like editing the OP so player list goes here
SLOTS ARE FULL. If any new players wish to sign up, they will be added to the waitlist.

What animal mask will you be wearing?
Welp, I hoped I'd edit it in quick enough. Apparently not.
Oh oops lmao.
11 slots open!
Cool! Whats your animal mask?
/join as the wolf, also are normal non secret plate switches mentioned here or in dm's and are the ranks from best to worst or from worst to best when it comes to dueling and dancing?
Normal plateswitches are done here, duel/dance rankings are from best to worst.
~Autistic Alivia you still need to choose an animal mask
Alright! Nine slots left!!
Bunp. Still looking for players, I really am looking forward to running this.
I can see why, while no doubt a lot more complicated than maffia this looks fun and our maffia games end rather soon anyway
Tbh, I don't think we even have that amount of active people on this forum.
Or more like "amount of active people who would be interested in a game like this", if they haven't replied yet. I would love to try it though, sounds interesting, plus I prefer games like this with a larger amount of players anyway
