I've played Mafia with friends before, but never on a forum. This is a lot more complex, but I'm up for the challenge. I've read through a previous game, too. This'll be fun. :)


Welcome benjer3 :thumbsup:

Hope you will like it!
PM me for any questions you might have during the game.

P.S.: Please note that day has 24h and night has 24h unless specified otherwise, so that everybody has one or more chances to be on, regardless of time-zone. So the feeling might seem different from real-life mafia at first, but I think it will become more familiar after discussions begin day 1 (and later) ;)

A couple of explanations/clarifications (I'll carry them over to the game thread once signups are over):
- First, Dominion (baddies) have a night-kill (forgot to put that :duh:)
- about vote-manipulators: Picard can make a vote (any vote) count x0, x1, x2, Dukat can make a vote (any vote) count x0, Sela can make her vote x1 or x2. Vote-manipulators are multiplicative and can interact - e.g. Picard makes A's vote x2 and Dukat makes it x0 then it's x0. Picard makes Sela vote x2 and Sela makes her vote x2 then Sela's vote is actually x4.
- Odo appears as a random Starfleet if spied by either LaForge or Weyoun.
- Odo only joins Dominion BTSC if he chooses to side with Dominion in N1 and he is spied by Weyoun in any night (including night 1).
- Female Changeling changeling ability is steal&gather ability. So each night she can choose to either to A) steal X's ability OR B) use a previously stolen ability. Regardless of the choice, she still appears as a random Starfleet if spied by LaForge (or Weyoun but that makes less sense).
- Picards invulnerability at night is for Dominion night-kill, Thomas' kill, Ometiklan kill. He is still vulnerable to RID Kill.
- Picards invulnerability at night cannot be stolen (but First Ometiklan's shroud ability can be)

Just a few questions about roles:
Does the order of actions mean that a later action cannot affect the results of a previous action?
Does Sela have a choice to RID kill or normal kill if her conditions change?
Does the Founder target a person or a role, and can she use acquired day abilities?
Who is Omet'iklan's target if the Founder is killed at night?

Glad you ask.

Does the order of actions mean that a later action cannot affect the results of a previous action?

Pretty much. It says in which order the actions are evaluated by the host - trap being the first.
Trap > RID Kill > Save > Redirect > Kill > Block > Oracle> Steal action > Spy/Follow.
E.g: If someone submits an action but was the target of a trap, his action is discarded since the trap is executed first. Saves protect from a Kill but not a RID Kill. Traps protect the victim of a Kill /RID Kill, etc.
Each game has its own order / rules set by the host, so nothing should be assumed unless explicitly stated.

Does Sela have a choice to RID kill or normal kill if her conditions change?

Nope. If she loses her initial targets she goes into a "murderous rage" - that is why RID Kill is replaced by a "blind" kill.

Does the Founder target a person or a role, and can she use acquired day abilities?

Founder targets a person, not a role. Practically, everyone targets a person.

Who is Omet'iklan's target if the Founder is killed at night?

Yeah, I left it kinda ambiguous, sorry about that.
He is a bodyguard of the Founder. So if Founder is targeted by X with a Kill (or a successful RID Kill) and Omet'iklan is still alive (not trapped), then Omet'iklan will die instead of the Founder and kill X /take X with him.
So more accurate would be: "If the Founder is targeted for a successful kill / RID Kill then Omet'iklan will die and take the attacker with him. The Founder will remain alive."
And in the unlikely event that the Founder is targeted by a kill AND a RID Kill the same night, then Omet will kill the RID-attacker (since that action comes first) and die leaving the second attacker able to kill the Founder.
