Round 79: Sherlock Holmes Edition [Mafia Win]

Post by Rainboy on Sat Aug 16, 2014 5:06 pm

By popular request (from all five of you who voted), we're doing Sherlock Holmes mafia.

Basic Rules:

  • Extension Rule: Game rounds will be 24 hours long unless fewer than half of the living players have voted, in which case the round will be extended 24 hours. No round shall go longer than 48 hours regardless of activity.
  • Weekend Rule: No round shall end on a Sunday. If a round would end on Sunday, it will instead end on Monday. A round that starts on a Friday will not be eligible for the Extension Rule mentioned above.
  • I will attempt to write a story for each round, but school is starting up and I cannot guarantee that they will be either good or consistent. Sorry about that.
  • Per usual in my games, self votes and no lynches are accepted. There should really be no reason for self votes, but hey, who am I to stand in your way if you have a death wish.
  • Failure to vote for two rounds in a row will result in modkill. If you let me know you're going to be afk before hand, this can be extended.



Role List:
Scotland Yard Inspectors
The Scotland Yard Inspectors will compose the majority of the game (eg, they're the basic villagers here). Each inspector may peek a player each round to discover if they are part of Moriarty’s crew. However, 1/3 of the inspectors will secretly have the ‘insane’ secondary role, which will flip all their peeks. An additional 1/3 will be naive, meaning that their results (almost) always come back as Not Mafia. If we have a strange number of inspectors, remaining inspectors will be Confused and will have their peek results randomized each night.

Sherlock Holmes
Known far and wide for his excellent deductive reasoning, Holmes is the best of the best when it comes to crime fighting and the only one who can accurately spot Moriarty (even if it is only postmortem). While Sherlock is alive, he will know the true role and sanity of all dead players.

Watson
A loyal military doctor, Watson can protect a player each night, preventing them from being killed. If Watson protects a member of Moriarty's crew (besides Moriarty himself), the two will exchange shots and kill each other.



Professor James Moriarty
A man of (nearly) unmatched intellect and skill, Moriarty can usually slip past Scotland Yard inspectors with ease - but even a blind squirrel finds the occasional nut.
Sane Inspectors will see Moriarty as Not Mafia.
Insane and Naive Inspectors will see him as Mafia.
Confused Inspectors will see him randomly as Mafia or Not Mafia.

Lord Henry Blackwood
Dabbling in the dark arts, Blackwood can use his sudo-magical powers to discover the role and sanity of a chosen player each round.

Colonel Sebastian Moran
An expert marksman and loyal associate of Moriarty, Moran is able to shoot and kill one player once during the game in addition to the kill made by Moriarty’s network of spies each round. Alternatively, Moran may instead choose to assist in the spies' attack one round, ignoring Watson's protection and additionally killing him if he is protecting the target.

Dr. Roylott
Even the exceptional ingenuity of Dr. Roylott is dwarfed by the other players in this chess game and he has no exceptional powers to bring to the table.



Notes: The current iteration of the game is built for 15-17 players. I imagine we won't have that many, so I will probably have to trim some of the mafia roles out. Roylott will be the first to go, followed by Moran if we end up with truly pitiful numbers. If Moran is not in the game, Watson will not be allowed to successfully save a player more than once in the game.

[signups open]
Whoops. My own bot and I forget to open signups for him... brilliant.

[in]. Not gonna lie, it'll be strange being in a properly themed game (i.e. something that's not Anime/video games(. xD

Also, I'd argue that a properly themed round is not dependant on the source material but more on how well the host can make the game/the story fit the source material, French.

Not disagreeing with your argument Link, it'll just take me a bit to get used to given our regular themes. :P

though Sebastian's power seems like overkill for the Mafia, two kills in one night every night?

Sebastian is able to use one of his powers once during the game. He can't even use both.

I'm thinking that I need at least 9, preferably 12 to do this. I'd like to end signups Thursday, but will have to extend if we don't get more than the 7 we have now.

Not particularly considering this is about the normal amount of people. Not to mention school is starting around this time as well. This isn't a big forum.

Alrighty, I'll be starting here in roughly 45 minutes. Sorry in advance for the lack of story to kick things off... college and a part time job are being mean to me.

With eight players, I'm gonna have to juggle things a bit. Given the vast amounts of information and logic available to the village via the inspectors, I am regretfully going to remove Watson. We will have one of each base type of inspector (sane, insane, naive), two confused Inspectors, Holmes, Moriarty and Blackwood in the game.

Post by Rainboy on Mon Aug 25, 2014 8:36 pm

PMs going out now. Given the number of players and the likely duration of the game, I'm going to give out R0 negatives to all peekers.

This means that all Inspectors will be given the name of a random player who they would see as "not mafia" and Blackwood will be given the name of a random Inspector. This means that Confused Inspectors will be given a random player in the game, and the Insane Inspector will be given Blackwood.

(Before anyone complains, remember that Inspectors do not know their sanity, so the Insane Inspector will not know he is insane at the start of the game.)
