Intro

------

Around 2373, shortly after discovering a Wormhole to the Gamma Quadrant, the nations of the Alpha Quadrant encounter one of the biggest military force they have ever seen - The Dominion.

The Dominion moves to establish a foothold in the Alpha Quadrant by admitting the Cardassian Union as members of the Dominion. Diplomatic moves establish a neutrality with the Romulan Star Empire. Tensions rise as Dominion Changelings penetrate the Federation and the Klingon Empire and lead to an all-out war in the Alpha Quadrant.

Trapped in the Alpha Quadrant by the Federation minefield and without reinforcements, the Dominion has to break the blockade. Alpha Quadrant alliance needs to stop the Dominion's forces from conquering key strategic points in the quadrant and find a long-term solution to block the wormhole to the Gamma Quadrant.

Join this war and ensure this battle is won by your faction!

United Federation of Planets / Starfleet

--------------------------------------------------

WinCon: Wins if all Dominion forces are dead (including Odo if he chooses to side with them).

Captain Jean-Luc Picard - Captain of the USS Enterprise, a celebrated and well-respected Starfleet officer, archaeologist and diplomat that witnessed and played a key role in major turning points of galactic history. He favors taking risks and is a brilliant tactician in warfare. He believes in peace and the strength of alliances, both during peace times and war times. Famous quote – “Reports of my assimilation have been greatly exaggerated”

Action: Cannot be killed at night. His word carries weight (x0, x1, x2) depending on where he chooses to put that weight. Has BTSC with his First Officer.

Captain William T. Riker – First officer of USS Enterprise, refused to accept a command even after being field-promoted as Caption during the first invasion of the Borgs. Famous quote: "Fate protects fools, little children and ships named Enterprise".

Action: Plays the role of fate - can redirect one person at night. Has BTSC with his Captain.

Captain Ben Sisko – Commanding officer of the Deep Space 9 station and the USS Defiant. He blames his wife’s death on Picard who was leading the Borg attack at Wolf 359 after being assimilated by the Borg. Due to his exemplary leadership, he is promoted from commander to captain and becomes a key leader of Federation forces against the Dominion. He will break his or Starfleet principles if he sees no other way to win a war. Famous quote: “Ignorance to what is to come is the most important thing to understand about humans. It is the unknown that defines our existence. We are constantly searching, not just for answers to our questions, but for new questions. We explore our lives day by day, and we explore the galaxy, trying to expand the boundaries of our knowledge.”

Action: Can block a person each night. If Worf dies, his block ability is replaced by a trap ability.

Lt. Commander Worf – The first Klingon to enter and graduate the Starfleet Academy. Has served as a Lt. and Lt. Commander on the USS Enterprise before moving to DS9 and subsequently to USS Defiant. Famous quote: “If winning is not important, then, Commander - why keep score?“

Actions: Trap a player for the night. He has a 50% chance of finding out his role.

Lt. Commander Data – Second officer on the USS Enterprise. A Soong-type android, the first and only such being to ever enter Starfleet. Unfortunately, being the only android in the service, the natural disinclination to attribute command abilities and respect to an artificial being - as well as the long-undetermined issue of his self-determination rights - hampered Data's command advancement and led to service in operations division only. As a tactician, Data devised the first known defense to the Picard Maneuver. Famous quote: “I come from a town so small, we had a fraction for a zip-code. -... - It was so small, in fact, we didn't have a godfather of crime, we had a nephew.”

Action: His logical reasoning serves him best, yet sometimes he needs a human’s gut-feeling to make him reach his target. (Oracle - He can ask the host two yes or no questions each night.)

Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge - Chief Engineer on the USS Enterprise. Due to a birth defect, he was born blind. He received a VISOR (Visual Instrument and Sensory Organ Replacement) rendering him able to see in the infrared and ultraviolet ranges and beyond. His excelent technical and analytical abilities as well as his versatility and his cooperative leadership style earned him quick promotions from Lt (junior grade) to Lieutenant and then to his present position. Famous quote: “I think it's the universal greeting when you don't like someone.(answering Riker’s statement "Photon torpedo. Isn't that the universal greeting when communications are down?")”

Action: Using his VISOR he can see people’s true colors, but only if he focuses on one area. (Spy one target per night)

Lt. Thomas Riker - A result of a transporter accident in 2361 that created two William Thomas Rikers, genetically indistinguishable from each other, with personality and memories identical up to the point of the duplication. He was stuck on Nervala IV alone for 8 years until he was rescued by Enterprise. He remained an impulsive and reckless person, as opposed to his cautious and duty-driven counterpart who served as first officer under Picard. He joined the Maquis resistance, stole USS Defiant from DS9, and was captured and imprisoned in a labor camp on a Cardassian planet. Famous quote: “Looks like you got your evening all planned. Hope you've got room for the unexpected”

Action: Can’t help himself to take out people standing in his way (Kill)

Lt. Julian Bashir – Deep Space 9 chief medical officer. Although Human, his parents had him illegally genetically enhanced when he was a child because he could not keep up with his peers. The procedure made him mentally superior to most humans, and greatly enhanced his physical abilities. Somewhat tactless, he nevertheless develops friendships with several of the station's residents. Famous quote “ Inter arma enim silent leges. "In time of war, the law falls silent." Cicero. So, is that what we have become - a 24th century Rome, driven by nothing other than the certainty that Caesar can do no wrong?”

Action: He’s eager to use his skill to save someone even if they just met. (Save)

The Dominion – Have BTSC.

--------------------

WinCon: Win by majority and only if both Picard and Sisko are dead.

Female Changeling (Founder) – a Founder chosen by the Great Link, a giant gelatinous sea of shapeshifters, to represent the interests of the Changelings in both the Gamma and Alpha Quadrants. Instigated a bloody, genocidal interstellar war in order to conquer their inhabitants and worlds and subjugate them to the rules of the Dominion: a major galactic political power established by the Founders to defend their interests at all costs.

The Female Changeling harbored a particular mistrust and hatred towards non-Changelings - whom she referred to as solids - believing them to be infinitely inferior and unworthy beings by design. She was trapped in the Alpha Quadrant during the start of the Dominion War and helped coordinate the Dominion's war efforts. Famous quote: “You may win this war, Commander, but I promise you, when it is over, you will have lost so many ships, so many lives, that your "victory" will taste as bitter as defeat”

Action: Follows her target and assumes his abilities. Does not forget any stolen ability, but can only use one per night and only if she forfeits using her Changeling ability that night. If spied upon, she assumes the form of a random Starfleet player (Steal and gather abilities).

Weyoun(Vorta) - The Vorta are a humanoid species genetically engineered by the Founders of the Dominion to act as field commanders, administrators, scientists and diplomats. Vorta act as the commanders of the Jem'Hadar and are tasked with the distribution of ketracel-white, the drug that ensures the loyalty of the Jem'Hadar. Weyoun became a well-known Vorta in the Alpha Quadrant during the Dominion War, serving as the Dominion representative to the Cardassian Union. He is the only "Solid" that the Female Changeling claimed that she had ever trusted. Famous quote “Of course I'm paranoid, everyone's trying to kill me.”

Action: Can follow one person each night and learn his role. If he spies Odo, his identity is revealed to Odo only. If Odo already chose to side with the Dominion, he joins the BTSC. (Spy)

First Omet'iklan (Jem’Hadar) - The Jem’Hadar are a genetically engineered humanoid race from the Gamma Quadrant, the military arm of the Dominion and one of the most powerful military forces in the galaxy. The Jem'Hadar worship the Founders as gods, even if the vast majority of the Jem'Hadar have never actually seen a Founder. They have built their service to the shapeshifters into a religion, literally regarding the Founders as living gods, to the extent that the Jem'Hadar ritualistically commit suicide if they fail to protect a shapeshifter from harm. Jem'Hadar uniforms allow their wearers to be almost completely unaffected by many forms of anti-personnel force field. Famous quote: “I am First Omet'iklan, and I am dead. As of this moment, we are all dead. We go into battle to reclaim our lives. This, we do gladly, for we are Jem'Hadar. Remember - victory is life!”

Ability: Each night can choose to either draw his weapon and engage in combat with the enemy (Block) or "shroud" themselves, a form of camouflage that acts as a personal cloaking field (Invulnerable to kill). If the Vor’ta is dead, his ketracel white reserves will be depleted and his block is replaced by a Kill. Will die and take his target with him if the Founder is targeted for a successful kill / RID Kill.

Gul Dukat - A Cardassian military officer known for both brutal actions and cunning schemes. He was a Cardassian military officer who was assigned command of Terok Nor, the mining station and command post in orbit of Bajor that was later known as Deep Space 9. He was the Prefect of Bajor in the final years of the Bajoran Occupation and opposed the Cardassian withdrawal from Bajor which damaged his career. After the withdrawal, Dukat became the commander of the Second Order in the Cardassian Military. He can be charming, generous, do the right thing and but also commit atrocities towards those he perceives as enemies. He negociated Cardassia’s entry in the Dominion.

Famous quote: "Cardassia will be made whole. All that we have lost will be ours again. And anyone who stands in our way will be destroyed. This I vow with my life's blood: for my son, for all our sons."

Action: Can follow a target each night and tell which person they visited.

He can “sweet-talk” someone during the day to forget his vote (Make one vote count x0)

Romulan Star Empire

----------------------------

WinCon: Successfully RID Kill 2 out of 3 secret targets selected by host before the game starts. If two of her targets are killed by others or is lynched, no new targets are added but ability and WinCon is changed: she can kill instead of RID Kill and can only win if she’s the last one standing.

Commander Sela - A Romulan-Human hybrid; her mother was Lieutenant Natasha Yar of the USS Enterprise-D from an alternate timeline, while her father was a Romulan general. She became a commander in the Romulan military and became a major player in plots to disrupt the alliance between the Federation and the Klingon Empire. She tried to kidnap and brainwash Starfleet officer Geordi La Forge into killing a Klingon governor, supported the sisters of Duras in an attempt to covertly gain control of the Klingon empire and conspired tricking Spock into providing the Romulans with a reason for invading Vulcan. Since the Romulan Empire is still neutral in the Dominion Wars, she continues to pursue the empire’s interests only. Famous quote: “Everything in me that was human died with my mother; all that's left now is Romulan. Never doubt that.”

Action: Can RID Kill at night. Her RID Kill takes precedence over both Starfleet and Dominion kill. Is able to make her vote count x2 during the day (only if she chooses to via PM).

Indy

----------------------------

WinCon: Win with the faction of his choice.

Odo - Constable Odo is the DS9's incorruptible chief of security. He is a Changeling, capable of assuming any shape he wishes, but usually assumes a shape of a male adult humanoid. He was found in the Denorius Belt, brought back to the planet Bajor by the Cardassians (who maintained a military occupation of Bajor), and raised in a laboratory by a Bajoran scientist. Odo yearns to find his own people, but when he finally does, he is less than pleased to discover that they rule the Gamma Quadrant with an iron fist. Famous quote: “Patience is a lost virtue to most. To me, an ally.”

Action: He must decide to join a faction (Starfleet or the Dominion) in N1. If he does not choose, the host will choose for him. He does not have a night action but as a Changeling has the ability to appear as a random Starfleet when spied.

Day Rules:

- Tie lynch on day 1 means no lynch. Any other day it means random lynch among the tie.

Night Rules:

- Order of actions: Trap > RID Kill > Save > Redirect > Kill > Block > Oracle> Steal action > Spy/Follow.

- Trap = Block + Save and stops a RID Kill

- All succesful actions are shown in the night-post, including spies and redirects (only the person that was redirected is shown).

DL, also consider reading some previous Mafias. It'll give you a good idea of gameplay and you can see how some of the things in the guide actually play out.

I'd be willing to mentor Darth Legion for this one if that's alright with everyone. All final actions would be Darth's alone, but I could demonstrate how to use a spreadsheet, picking up on the night post's elimination clues, etc., until s/he gets the hang of it. I'd be willing to do the same for any other newcomers who have never played a Mafia before.

Alternatively, if this game needs one more player to get started, I would also being willing to play as a last resort.

DM92, do as araver asked Darth Legion to do and also read older Mafia...those things should answer your questions.

And signing up is just a matter of copying and pasting (or quoting and removing everything but the roster) the post with the most recent roster and adding your info. I only mention this because you will need to do the same for voting.

Hi dark_magician and welcome to this section of BrainDen.

As maurice already told you:

2. Join the roster.

3. If you still have more questions PM (private message) the host (ANYTIME) or ask for a mentor (one available see signup roster) ONCE THE GAME STARTS.

4. Until the game starts, you can read on previous Mafias in the same "Games" section of BrainDen.

Also, please help keep this signup thread clean by removing the quotes when you reply. Thank you.

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.
