    Best Of Forum Mafia WIFOA Game Thread

    This is a game of Mafia. For those unfamiliar with Mafia, here is a basic description. Source .

    In its simplest form, Mafia consists of two sides: the Mafia, and the Town. The Mafia's goal is to kill the innocents, while the Town's goal is to kill the Mafia.

    At the beginning of the game, the Moderator will secretly send everyone their role. The Mafia will know each other, while (in the basic game) everyone else will only know their own role.

    The game has two phases, the first of which is Day. During Day, the Town must choose someone to Lynch; they are trying to eliminate the Mafia, but the Mafia can lead them astray by casting suspicion elsewhere. Generally, players will vote for someone they think is Mafia (the Mafia will vote so that they seem to be doing this as well, and might even vote for each other to confuse the Town); when a player gets a majority of the votes, they are lynched. Their role is revealed by the Moderator, and it becomes Night.

    During the Night, the thread is locked and no one can talk publicly. The Mafia, however, can speak to each other privately to plot strategy and decide who to murder before the next Day begins. In this way, they can silence members of the Town who are threats to them. At the end of the Night, the murder is carried out and another Day begins. In effect, the Town gets to kill someone, and then the Mafia gets to kill someone.

    The game alternates between Day and Night until either the Mafia are eliminated, or the Mafia have killed everyone else (or nothing can prevent the same).
    Forum rules apply while playing in this game.


    • Everyone has a single vote. The vote format is: Vote: Name. Bolded. With colon. With a name.
    • Simple spelling issues in the name are acceptable.
    • You may only have one vote at a time.
    • You may change your vote during the day. In order to change your vote, you must first unvote any current vote and then vote for a different player. Format: Unvote: Name. The name is also required.


    • One player may be lynched per day.
    • A player receiving more than half of the votes will be considered locked and will be lynched at the end of the day.
    • If no player receives enough votes to be lynched by the end of the day, no one is lynched.


    • No one is allowed to post during the night.
    • No one is allowed to talk about this game outside of this thread unless your role specifically tells you otherwise.
    • No one is allowed to post after they die.


    • The first rule of forum mafia is that you donít talk about PMs.
    • The second rule of forum mafia is that you donít talk about PMs.
    • If you have something to say or ask, then say it or ask it without referring to PMs.
    • Referring to information contained within a PM is OK. Quoting that information is not!
    • This also applies to any QuickTopic you participate in.


    • Violating any game rules may result in modkill.
    • If you are modkilled, you canít win.
    • Intentionally modkilling yourself will result in some type of penalty placed on the rest of the members of your alignment. The penalty will depend on the severity of the infraction. This penalty may include: factional roll block, withholding information and giving the other side an extra night kill.

    Miscellaneous Rules

    • Do not edit your posts unless instructed to do so by the moderator.
    • Stay active. A minimum of two, contributive, non-consecutive posts are required per day phase.
    • A Temp Ban from the forums results in a modkill from the game.


    • If your role conflicts with any of the game rules, follow the instructions on the role. The role supersedes game rules.
    • I may modify these rules at any time to create a better play experience.

    Questions, Feedback, Issues
    I welcome all questions and feedback. If you donít want to post in the game thread, do so via PM or the e-mail address found in your initial alignment PM.

    If you see any mistakes or other issues, please bring them to my attention (publicly or privately) promptly.

    Game Specific Rules

    This is a Wine In Front Of All (WIFOA) style game similar to City Mafia and Night of the Living WIFOA. In a WIFOA game, all roles are bid upon by the players. To determine the bidding order, all players choose two numbers between 1 and 20. The first is the primary number, the second is only used for tiebreakers. The person who chose the lowest number will have first pick of roles, with subsequent people choosing as you go higher in the numbers. However, if any number is chosen by multiple people, then they will choose a role after all single number picks have chosen. In a nutshell, lower numbers are better, but singles will always beat out duplicates, which beat out triplicates, etc. If the tiebreaker numbers are equal as well, then time of submission is used as the final tie-breaker.

    Once all bids are submitted, the pick order list will be published and we can proceed into picking roles.

    Role List:

    1. Boromir (LoTR). Can blow his mighty horn during the day and disrupt all night talk meetings for that night. Boromir's Horn will last one good blow before cleaving. [Not in a Shawshank way...]

    2. Professor Farnsworth (All My Circuits). Inventor! Could invent one of three things each night and pass them around.

    • What If Machine - must be given to someone, one-shot role-blocking item, may be invented multiple times
    • Box to another Universe! - must be given to someone, one-shot bus driver item, may be invented multiple times
    • Dooms Day Device - can't give away, can't use until next day, target dies, along with everyone the target targeted/got targeted by (save for Farnsworth himself). may be invented a single time

    3. Fifth (Stargate). Human Form Replicator. X% chance to recruit non-mafia into your cult. Recruited players lose all abilities and traces of their former life. Only Fifth will know the exact value of X% (but it's not too different from the original role).
    This role replaces your alignment and has a Cult Win Condition: You win if your cult makes up over 50% of the remaining players.

    4. Parrot (And Now For Something Completely Different...). You may be blue, but you're definitely not Norwegian. Also, you're not dead, yet. You have the ability to mimic the first night action of other player. Each night, you may choose one player to parrot, and X players to target with your mimicked ability (X is chosen to match the other roles in the game).

    5. Adam Faulkner (Saw). Photographer. Each night you receive a picture from a randomly chosen action. During the day, you may choose to show it to everyone else.

    6. Papa Smurf (Press Your Luck). You have a post restriction: You must always talk like a smurf does.

    7. Henry Porter, Governor (Hellsmouth). You have one opportunity to block a lynch. However, you cannot block your own lynch.

    8. Forger (Ravenwood Retreat)

    • Framing - Targeted player, if investigated by rolecop this night, will show up as role X, the default is hitman but you chose X each night.
    • Tailor- You will show up as a redirector to rolecops. This can be changed to another role of your choosing..
    • Two Shot Redirection - Target playerís action will now target the player of your choice until the next night.

    9. Malcom Berrett (Stargate II). A Human. You own an Anti Replicator Gun. During the day, if you include the word ďARGĒ in one of your posts, and a replicator makes a post in the following 4 posts, it dies instantly. You can use it two times during the whole game.

    10. The Advisor (Half-Life). You are a terrifying psionic entity that in some odd way, can tap into the vast portal energy generated by the combine. Protect this technology for it can also be your undoing. You are bulletproof and lynchproof at the start of the game.

    11. Old Lady Mallard "Mother" (NCIS). Reads as anti-town to cop investigations. Will stab and wound anyone trying to enter her mansion except Ducky or she believes he is there to move her furniture. Anyone stabbed by her goes to Bethesda Hospital for the day and cannot post for 24 hours time.

    12. Gray Man (Wheel of Time). Soulless: Your unique nature makes it hard for people to see you. You are unwatchable, untrackable and unfollowable.

    13. The Abominable Snow Monster of the North, aka Bumble (RRRR). You are a Strongman. Being a Strongman, if you perform a kill, you will bypass any doc, bodyguard, bulletproof, etc.

    14. Kotaro (Black Blood Brothers). Sage Blood - Sire (recruit) Immune.

    15. Darcy (Till Death...). Barkeep. During the day, you can choose 4 players. One of them is chosen randomly and you both can speak during the next night phase. No information about roles / alignment is revealed.

    16. Mystery Win Condition (City Mafia) - An alternate win condition. What is it? IT'S A MYSTERY. You'll know before game starts. The Mystery Win Condition will be a neutral/third-party win con able to share a win with town and mafia. This role replaces your assigned win condition.

    17. Rogue (Roles of Madness). Stealth is your key weapon. Each night you can either track a target or watch a target.

    18. Stan Marsh (South Park). One shot global role block.

    19. Cliff Clavin (Cheers/Frasier). Barfly. During a day phase you may pick one person. Actions affecting said person on that day phase or following night phase will be delayed until their next active phase (Lynches will not be affected). You will be seen targeting the affected postal recipient that night.

    20. Jack of All Trades (Night of the Living WIFOA) - Comes with following, all one-shots: Doctor, Cop, Coroner, Roleblocker.

    21. Athena (Greek Gods). Goddess of Wisdom. Namecop/Rolecop. Each night, you may choose to investigate a player to reveal their name and role.

    22. Melisandre (ASOIAF)

    • War Planning: Prevent the night kill of every living member of your House, one time use. (For town, House = yourself. For mafia, House = mafia faction)
    • Read the flames: Learn the abilities used by one player each night (follower)

    23. Julian "Bean" Delphiki (Ender's Game). Listener. You will receive one randomly chosen night chat message per night.

    24. Kangaxx (Baldur's Gate). JOAT Mage. You have the following 1 shot abilities:

    • Mirror Image - You cast three duplicate copies of yourself to confuse your foes. Any effect targeting you will have a 75% chance to fail for the duration of this spell.
    • Domination - Choose target player. That player cannot cast a vote for the duration of the next day phase.
    • Power Word, Kill - The pinnacle of the Dark Arts, uttering this spell instantly kills the target. Due to the demanding nature of this spell and your current weakened state, you may not vote during the following Day phase if you cast this spell.

    Pick Order List

    1. Malevolent 4 // 4
    2. djmbbandie 7 // 19
    3. Solar Ice 9 // 2
    4. pharphis 10 // 10
    5. Sathoris 11 // 1
    6. coju 17 // 20
    7. flubbucket 2 // 5
    8. Noammr 2 // 23
    9. Caluin Graye 3 // 1
    10. thefranklin 3 // 2
    11. Drixx 6 // 3
    12. Pyrotechnician 6 // 5
    13. kestegs 6 // 13
    14. Moar 5 // 8
    15. Bad Ash 5 // 18
    16. Gwaihir 5 // 1
    17. BipolarChemist 5 // 1
    18. Ankeli x // x
    19. Noodle x // x

    Time to send in your role picks. I hope it doesn't take as long as bids.


    1. Everyone sends in their pick at the same time. Send em!
    2. After picks are received...
    3. starting with picker #1
      1. if their picked role is not taken, they get to play as that role.
      2. if their picked role is already taken by someone with an earlier pick order, they get to play as a vanilla role (vanilla townie or vanilla goon, depending on alignment).

    4. repeat for picker #2
    5. then picker #3
    6. and so on

    Fair warning to all...

    I plan on starting the game tomorrow whether or not everyone has submitted a pick. Don't tempt fate (or a maniacal mod)!

    Role PMs are being sent...

    Everyone is getting a quickie role PM right now. It'll be pretty much copy/paste from the Role List. I'll have more detailed role PMs written after I've had some dinner.

    Don't be surprised if you see something like this:

    Iím a slacker and need a co-mod. ThunderCat has graciously offered to co-mod. Because both of us need access to any role actions, decisions and questions, we have set up a QT specifically for this purpose.
    Your QT is here.

    You want fun? Let's play a game...

    Day 1 has started. It will end on Monday at 5pm EST.

    There are 19 players alive. It takes 10 votes to lynch/lock.

    I'm looking for a replacement for FredOfErik. If you hurry, you still get to pick a role.
