Day 4 - Why's the rum gone?

Itachi backed up against the side of the ship as the angry crew members formed a circle around him. "You must be the last pirate!" Ben Law shouted as he loaded his pistol with gunpowder.

"Yes, there is only one suspect left and that is Itachi," said Woon, brandishing a dagger.

"Aye, he tried to be tricky last night, but we were not fooled", said Joe's Student as he advanced a little closer, sword pointed directly at Itachi.

"Are ye sure about that? I be the last pirate, but I did fool all o' ye last night. All your rum are belong to us", said Itachi as he climbed up onto the ship's railing.

"Arrr! You took our rum?" asked GC angrily as he raised his scimitar.

"Don't worry, he didn't get all of it," said Slick, emerging from the circle with a drink of rum in one hand, sword in the other. "I took some back to my cabin to help speed my recovery", laughed Slick as he took another swig.

"I wouldn't drink that if I were you," said Itachi as he glanced out at the sea behind him.

"Yer a lying pirate scum, and now yer going to die", said Slick defiantly.

"Fine, suit yourself. Ye may have figured me out, but I'll not allow the lot of ye the pleasure of killing me", said Itachi as he drew his pistol, raised it to his own head, and pulled the trigger.

The body of the Pirate Alchemist fell out over the railing and hit the water below with a splash, then sank into the depths with an odd smile still on his face.


Epilogue

Later that night...


"Land ho!", shouted Joe's Student, the lookout, from his position up in the crow's nest.

"Have we reached our destination?", asked GC, the bartender, as he cleaned up some mugs off the bar.

"It is good that nobody else die", said Doctor Woon as he tended Slick's bandages.

"Aye, and now that the pirate scum are all dead, lets find that treasure", said Slick, the wounded Navy Officer.

"Did somebody say treasure?" asked Ben Law, also known as One-Eyed Jack, as he emerged from his cabin. "I can come out now that the blasted Kraken is gone."

Captain Sinistral anchored the ship near the deserted island, and went ashore with the remaining crew to search for the treasure. He glanced down at an old piece of parchment in his hand from time to time as he led the crew through the jungle, instructing them to turn left or turn right at seemingly random places. Eventually they got to a small clearing, where Sinistral mumbled something about "X marks the spot", and instructed the crew to dig. After about an hour of digging, one of the shovels made a loud clang as it hit something metallic. The crew unearthed a small treasure chest and carried it back to the ship. "As promised, we will all share this treasure, ye have been a fine crew", said Sinistral as he opened up the chest. Inside were hundreds of gold doubloons, jewels, and other valuable items. After dividing up the treasure evenly, Sinistral raised his jeweled mug and shouted, "Arrr! Lets have a drink to honor our fallen crew members, and another drink to the pirates and Kraken who made this such a fun trip!".

"But Cap'n", GC said sadly, "The last pirate took all our rum, remember?"

Sinistral laughed. "Arr! He did get SOME of the rum, but not ALL of it, matey. I always keep a secret stash down below deck for emergencies. And having no rum to celebrate counts as an emergency!"

The crew members brought out the rum and drank and celebrated long into the night before heading back to their cabins. The bartender GC started cleaning up the bar when he noticed one crew member who had fallen asleep in his seat. "Slick matey," said GC, "ye've had enough to drink, wake up and lets get ye back to yer cabin. Ye need not worry about pirates tonight." GC tried to wake Slick, but Slick lay perfectly still.

"Arrr! Blast you, Itachi!" shouted GC.

Brilliant Game Captain! Thanks alot!

Innocents: Woohoo! Well done guys! :D

Btw, Sinistral, i thought it was a brilliant idea to give the first 1 dead a chance to still participate. It sucks when you die early in a game so i thought that was a brilliant addition :D

FIF: nice script man!

Pirate Rank & Awards - Pirate Mafia I

Disclaimer: Due to the nature of the game of Mafia, it is very difficult to qualitatively analyze a player's performance.
Nevertheless, I have made an attempt at putting together a ranking/awards system for Pirate Mafia with the hope that players will enjoy the game more because of it. I realize that the system has many flaws, and that some roles are much easier to score points with than others. I figure that over the course of a few games, players will end up with different roles, so it should all average out in the end. Please do not be insulted/offended if you have a lower score than someone else, this does not mean you are a bad player. This system is experimental and I will probably end up changing it quite a bit, or may even get rid of it entirely.

As usual, comments/suggestions are always welcome.

Generally speaking, players with a pirate role earn points by killing innocents and by staying undetected. Players with an innocent role earn points by using their abilities effectively. Example: Doctor making the correct choice and saving an innocent earns 3 points, while doctor attempting to save a pirate earns negative 1 point.
Voting is a key aspect of mafia and was very difficult to define a points system for, so this is probably the most flawed part of the whole thing. The first vote against a player is important, a player must go out on a limb and attract suspicion onto themselves by casting the first vote; therefore, a correct first vote which results in the player being planked is worth 2 points. Swing votes (the last decisive vote against a player) are also important, but since it is easier to jump on a bandwagon than to be the initial voter, swing votes are only worth 1 point. Similarly, an initial vote which leads to an incorrect lynching is worth negative 2 points, and incorrect swing votes are worth minus 1 point.
Voting as a pirate role is tricky, players often need to feign innocence so they may vote for one of their own, which is difficult to analyze in the points system. Still, an initial vote by a pirate against an innocent which leads to that innocent being lynched is still worth two points.

Ranking System:


Congrats to Joe's Student for being the top ranked player in Pirate Mafia I (based on this system). He voted for a pirate correctly on EVERY single day, and never once voted for an innocent, which is no easy accomplishment in Mafia. Not only that, he was the initial voter for two out of the three pirate plankings, and used his ability effectively almost every night (though Itachi was very sneaky in avoiding him). He was a key factor in the innocent's victory. He has earned the rank of Cabin Boy, and an additional 3 Pirate Points™ for coming in first place.

In second place was Cherry Lane, the Pirate Wench. She got credit for all of the pirates' night kills, even killing the elusive Kraken, while still using her visiting ability to cancel out saving attempts and also prevent the investigation of one of her fellow pirates. As it turns out, the one being investigated was the Pirate Lord, which would have been beneficial to the pirates, but the system is flawed so she still gets positive points for this action. She has earned the rank of Cabin Girl and receives 2 Pirate Points™ for coming in second place.

Q. What does my Pirate Rank do exactly?
A. In the event of a tied voting, instead of a coin flip to determine the outcome, the person planked will be the one
with the LOWEST Pirate Rank. If the tied players have equal pirate rank, then there will be a coin flip to determine the loser. (A role with the tiebreaker ability overrides this.)
It may also be used to decide other coin flip situations, but overall impact on the game will be minimal.
Your Pirate Rank also determines which items you are elegible to purchase with your Pirate Points™.
