Mafia Twilight Zone Mafia

Thread Description
Maple Street, U.S.A., late summer. A tree-lined little world of front porch gliders, barbecues, the laughter of children, and the bell of an ice cream vendor. At the sound of the roar and the flash of light, it will be precisely 6:43 P.M. on Maple Street...This is Maple Street on a late Saturday afternoon. Maple Street in the last calm and reflective moment - before the monsters came.

Welcome to the twilight zone. Here there is a miasma of a mafia game. One where it truly may be impossible to tell who among you seeks to destroy and who is only doing what they believe to be right. But if you join hands and stay the course, whether the darkness that shrouds the space you live in, you may find light at the end of the tunnel.

We've also updated our terms of conduct, so please take a few moments to review them here at this link.

Section 1: How to play the game
1. At the start of the game, every player will receive a 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 a player dies, their role will be revealed in the thread.
6. The village wins when all threats to the village 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
7. 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.
8. Don't metagame. 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.
9. Don't play against 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.
10. Don't post in the thread at night.
11. 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.
12. 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.

Unfortunately, we're experiencing some severe interference in the radio transmissions from our information center. This isn't the first time this has happened, but I can see why you may be concerned. Unfortunately, I haven't completely memorized the details, but I'll do my best to inform you of what I know.

I do know that there is a Doctor in town, he should be able to keep you safe both night and day should that mean anything to you. There also exist a few roles that craft or give away items of all kinds, though I know not of their efficacy or intentions with such items. There are also people like your neighborhood watch, you know perhaps some sort of investigative type role. In addition, an insidious role among you may spread lies and misinformation, so do not simply trust everything you see or hear about the neighborhood. One thing is for sure however, the Information Center will tell no lies when posting directly in the thread. So there's at least one reliable source of information in the game.

We ask that you hang on until the end of Day 3, when our Information Center will conclude with it's scheduled weekly repairs. We would have asked for the repairmen to come sooner, however, they were fully booked until that time. It seems many communities are experiencing these issues with their radio televisions. Thank you for your patience with us at this time.

This is a hidden role game lol just look at the above spoiler

Things of note; a doctor exists as well as some form of investigator and item giver.

Not everything you receive in your pms will be the truth though.

You can, however, expressly trust everything put in the thread by the host of the game, being me.

At the end of Day 3 communications out of town will be restored and you will receive more information on the split, roles in the game, and most questions you'll probably have.

the game also may or may not end depending on play

So shall you step through the doorway with me and prepare to take your first steps into, The Twilight Zone?

She's like a sea urchin. Tough and prickly on the outside, but delicate and easily wounded if hit the wrong way. Please handle gently.

11 players is about what I expected.

There are approximately 24 hours until the event occurs. Please remain calm. As long as everyone acts in a dignified manner, no harm shall befall you.

This is an announcement from the Community Information Centre.

Sign-ups for the Initiative Program have been closed. All townsfolk participating may resume their daily lives, of which I am certain you will recall most of any moment from now. An additional announcement will be made shortly once the preparations are complete, where nonparticipants will cease to exist and your continued normal, ordinary lives will continue in earnest.

There is no cause for alarm.

Everything is normal.

This is a follow-up announcement from the Community Information Centre.

There was a slight clerical error in the last announcement. Non-participating members of the community will continue to exist despite the initiation of the Program. They were, in fact, not terminated in any capacity and will continue to live long prosperous lives alongside you. We advise against speaking to them for a short while, however, as it may render the program...inert.

In any case, the program has officially begun.


Night has fallen, in 24 hours, or at 6 PM EST May 24th, the sun will rise and the day will begin. The split is ų̵̨̗̝̙̳̞̗̦̾̋̉́̉̈́̉ṉ̴̛͇̳͓̪͕̳̟̦̳̥̪̦͈͇̖̙̮̒͒͐͒͆̊͑̕͜c̴͉̳͕̀͋̊̄̑͆̐̎͝e̵̘̎͗͐͒̄̅͒̀̒͌̌̓̊̈̚̕r̷͖͙̭͙̮̥̞̲͖̻̅̈́̎͐̅̚ͅẗ̷̛̛̥̺̭̓͋̏̊͑̏̈́̅̎͌̔̀̄͝á̸̡͎̱̦̖̦̯̻̟̺̳̞͇̺ͅỉ̴̧̠̥̱̦̭͇͚͔̖̣̬̝̳̩͎͍͖̖͈͊̓̄̊͂̐͆̉̈́͝ņ̶̨̛̗͎̬̞͙̮̦͍̣̾̃̈́͆̓̎̑̓̑̊̆͒͛̓͛̚̕͘͜͝

We hope you have a restful and uneventful evening.

As the morning sun rises as day breaks over the town you expect an announcement from the Community Informational Centre. None ever comes. Instead at precisely 6:20 pm, all electronic devices cease functioning for some inexplicable reason. As you begin to congregate in the street you find yourselves confronted with a horrible reality.

You stare down at a dead body left lying prone in the middle of Maple Street.

DEAD: TheHumanCleric

??? - Village

Day 1 has begun. In 48 hours or at 6:30 PM EST Tuesday, May 26th the sun will set.

PMs have been sent out. You now have all information required.
