In 1989 Dawkins commented, 'The word meme seems to be turning out to be a good meme' (Dawkins 1989).
I needed to host a game that would work for a relatively small number of players, and Mega Man 1 has a small cast, and i had a good idea for it, so here we go.

Section 1: How to play the game
1. At the start of the game, every player will receive a role PM telling them what their role is, and mafia members will be told who the other mafia members are.
2. The game will consist of alternating night and day phases, starting at Night One. Night phases last 24 hours, and day phases last 48 hours.
3. During the night, players can send night actions by responding to their role PM with their action. In addition to night actions listed in each role description, the mafia can collectively choose one player to kill every night.
4. During the day, all living players can discuss in the thread to determine their next course of action. Anyone can post "Vote: PlayerName" to cast a vote to lynch that player. At the end of the day, if more than 50% of the living players are voting for the same player, that player will be lynched.
5. When voting for who to kill at night, the mafia member that actually performs the night kill is decided by the mafia. This is done by having the visitor of their choice include that they will be the visitor in their night action PM. If none do so, the last mafia member to vote will visit.
6. When a player dies, their role will be revealed in the thread.
7. The village wins when all mafia members are dead. The mafia wins when the number of mafia members is equal to half of the living players. All third parties have unique win conditions explained in their role description.

Section 2: What not to do
8. If you have a night action, and you don't post or send any actions for three consecutive phases, you will be inactive killed. If you don't have a night action, you'll be inactive killed after missing two consecutive day phases. Players killed by inactivity do not win, even if their win condition is met.
9. Don't do metagaming. That's when you use info like "Oh, that guy is using the PM system shortly after the night began! He must have some sort of night action!" Metagaming has many forms, so if you think something might be metagaming, check with the host first.
10. Play for your side. If your actions are obviously aiming to sabotage your team's chances of winning, that is bad. If you think something might count as playing against your side, ask the host if it is.
11. Don't post in the thread at night.
12. Don't post anything that could influence the game after you're dead. This also applies if you aren't in the game at all.
13. Don't copy and paste or screencap anything sent to you by the host or other players as a form of evidence. This is to make your information not super easy to confirm.

Also see the Mafia Code of Conduct here: https://nuzlockeforums.com/forum/index.php?threads/nuzlocke-forums-mafia-community-code-of-conduct.19483/

Mega Man: The Blue Bomber himself! Every night, you can visit a player to kill them. If you kill a Robot Master, you'll take their weapon. If you have any other weapons, you can use both your regular weapon and one other weapon every night, but no more than that.


Dr. Light: You're the scientist who created all of these robots. Not only do you know how to repair them, but you can also tell who is who at a glance. You have two night actions, both of which can be used every night. One action protects the target from death, while the other will let you learn the target's role.


Roll: Unlike all the other robots in the game, you don't have any fancy abilities. At the start of the game, you're basically a named villager, but if Dr. Light dies while you're still alive, you can choose one of his actions (protection or investigation), and you'll be able to use that action for the rest of the game.


Of the six Robot Masters, only three of them (chosen at random) will be in the game. It won't be revealed which ones are in. There might be more than three if the game gets more players than expected, but if that happens I'll also have to think of some village roles to even things out.

Cut Man: Every night, you can visit a player to throw your Rolling Cutter at them. The attack will circle around the target, preventing anyone else from visiting them on the same night. This action will be prevented if Mega Man kills you using his normal weapon or Super Arm.

Guts Man: Once during the game, at night, you can use your Super Arm to pick up a heavy rock. When you do this, you'll protect yourself from death. On the following night, visit a player to throw the rock at them, killing them. Throwing the rock will reveal you as the thrower. If you try to use either of these actions while you have a Hyper Bomb on you, the bomb will explode, killing you.

Ice Man: Every night, you can use your Ice Slasher to freeze a player, preventing their action. This cannot stop a player from using Thunder Beam, and if Mega Man uses Thunder Beam on you, you'll die.

Bomb Man: At night, you can throw your Hyper Bomb at a player. The bomb won't explode immediately; instead, if the player holding the bomb dies at night, the bomb will explode, killing anyone who visited them on the same night. You can only have one bomb out at a time, so until the player with the bomb dies, you won't be able to use another one. If Mega Man uses Fire Storm on you, you'll die.

Fire Man: Every night, you can visit a player and use your Fire Storm to light up the area around them, which will let you learn that player's role. However, doing this also lights up the area around you, so if you're visited by anyone on the same night, the visitor will learn your role. If you're hit by Mega Man's Ice Slasher, you'll die.

Elec Man: Every night, you can visit a player to use your Thunder Beam on them. The electricity will scramble their circuits, redirecting their night action to a target of your choice. (I know this isn't something Elec Man does but i'm REALLY stretching with some of these powers.) If Mega Man blocks your action with a Rolling Cutter, you'll die.

Cool, we have enough players that I can run a balanced setup without cutting any roles. Putting the game in 24 hour mode now.

Alright, time to close signups and get started. We'll have an even 9/3 split. Role PMs coming soon.

---

Role PMs have been sent. If you didn't get one for some reason, let me know.

Night One begins now. It'll end 24 hours from the time this post was edited. Actions sent after that time won't count.

Wait a second, if Megaman gets one kill and mafia gets 1 nightkill, then there must be another person who can perform a nightkill. Looking at the mafia roles, I think we can guarantee that Bomb Man is in the game.

Does the bomb activate on the same night it's used?
