This will be a completely Normal game of mafia (i.e. no weird roles, just standard stuff). The twist is that everybody’s role and alignment will be posted in this thread when the game starts.
Let’s say I roll the dice and they tell me that Urist and Mantis are scumbuddies. I’ll post in this thread that Urist and Mantis are the scum, then we all move into the anonymous subforum to play a game with our anonymous alts. Easy peasy!
Q: How do the scum stay hidden?
A: We will play in the Anonymous subforum. The scum will have to keep the identity of their main account secret to avoid being lynched.
Q: Why wouldn’t the town just massclaim names?
A: For each anonymous account, the scum has one chance to guess the player that goes with that account. If they are correct, that player will die. The town will have to keep the identity of their main account secret to avoid being killed.
This game will use plurality-driven 72 hour day phases. Let me know ITT if you have any other questions.
The game will not start for at least a couple of weeks. Right now I’m aiming for a Oct 7th start date, although that is subject to change.
