  1. Prologue Kintobor gingerly carried his luggage out to the trunk of his car, watching his step as he made his way out of his house. His trip to the Far Far Away BrickCon had been a long time coming, and he was visibly excited for the road trip accompanying his time at one of the world's largest Lego conventions. "No, wait, stop! You can't just leave me alone for who knows how long?" Karie rushed out of the house, following closely behind Kintobor. She was dressed in clothing more appropriate for a comic book convention than a normal Friday afternoon. "Look, can't you take a plane or something? Take me along with you or something?" Kintobor turned around, trying to be as cordial as he could with his new housemate. "Look, Karie," Kinto explained, "I've had this trip planned for months, and you've known about me leaving to go to this convention for months. I know things haven't been great for you since Heroica ended, but I need time to focus on things other than planning more mafia games and occasionally finding myself playing in one. You need to find yourself a hobby, Karie, that doesn't involve you streaming yourself playing video games or being the deliverer of death in my mafia games. Perhaps if you need some help looking for one I can help you out during my trip." "Yeah... whatever. Have fun on your trip, Kinto. Leaving me all alone in a house. By myself." Karie complained. "You'll be fine. You have my cellphone number. If something comes up, give me a call. Feel free to invite people over, just..." Kinto paused himself, trying to find the words. "Don't make any big messes, okay?" Kintobor got into his car after finishing loading his luggage. Waving goodbye to Karie, his vehicle sputtered down the road, leaving a trail of dust behind him. Karie was left watching her housemate drive away, left with her own thoughts. She was left with no real human interaction for who knows how long, in a rather cramped house. She could go back to playing video games on Twitch for cash, she thought. It was then, with the speed of a strike of lightning, that an idea entered Karie's brain. "No big messes? Hmm... Maybe I can do something fun while Kinto's away..." --- Welcome to Karie's Cosplay Mafia: The House Party! If you don't know who Karie is, don't worry. All you need to know is she's bored, and has free reign of a house for an undetermined amount of time. Sign ups will close next Friday, or until we get fifteen people. If we have more than fifteen I can accommodate. Here are your three questions you need to answer to be signed up: 1. Have you ever played Mafia before? If you answered yes, when was the last time you played on Eurobricks? 2. Do you have time to commit to a game of mafia? The game is expected to last roughly one month. 3. "Why should I invite you to my cosplay house party?" -Karie --- Rules: (Thanks Def. I'm stealing your rules.) 1.

  2. The Story It's the weekend, yet somehow mail has been delivered. fhomess and Mostly Technic are having a Star Wars together. "Yo, holmes, we's is got an invite to a mad shindig! It be called, Pelly's Paradise." fhomess replies, "Pelly? Have I heard that name before? I'm cautiously optimistic." Bob wakes up in his teepee. "Woohoo! Got it going on!" Zepher is sort of pleased, but he isn't going to attend anything without his morning cherries. Brickelodeon opens the letter as she takes in some grog. "Arrrrgh, a parrrrrghty. Me be attending." Dragonator delicately brushes Shadows' soft hair. "Wait, buddy, you know the deal: just when I thought I was out, they pulled me back in." And so on for 13 other such vignettes of people getting their invites. Finally, in a high-tech lab, a door opens releasing it's carbon-based contents. "Oh, I need to stretch." Outside a nondescript building, a silent figure watches as people straggle in. "..." Inside an even more nondescript room, everyone gathers. "Looks like someone dipped into the beige bricks," someone observes. Pelly clears his throat. "..." Def speaks up, "Allow me to translate for my associate here. In this game, I will be his spokesperson." "..." "Welcome to Pelly's Paradise. "A beige room is paradise?" someone yells. "..." "He chose the name more for alliteration purposes," def explains. Pelly continues. "..." "As you may have guessed, you will be playing a little mafia here." Some not so surprised gasps flutter through the room. "What if we don't want to play a game to the death?" somebody boldly asks. "..." "Um, he said, uh, there was poison in the invitation letters, so you have to play to the death or the poison will kill you. Or something like that. Anyway, you're going to play." "..." "As well, he would like me to tell you that we will be starting shortly." Nobody gasps at that. "..." "And finally, he requests that you drop your accessories off with me before we begin." Huh?

  3. Xenomorphic Monoxide tries to defend himself. "Um, I can't change your minds, I guess. I suppose I could nominate someone better, and give reasons, or I could go through the voting record and consider the events of the last week and try to put something together." The crowd moves closer. "Nah, you guys have made up your mind." The crowd moves round him, and gives him a hearty beating. He was Town. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Goliath contemplates on his position. "Hard to believe I almost quit day one! And now I'm one of the few to make it to the end! Must be because of my sharp gameplay!" In the prattle of self-congratulations, he never hears Stickfig approaching. "Hey Goliath! I think you have something in your eye!" Goliath turns around to get a blast of Stickfig's optic beam in the face. Satisfied in his evil, Stickfig himself never hears the dark crusader enter the room. WHAP! Stickfig never stood a chance. Captain Settle takes a moment to congratulate himself. "Did I vig kill four of the scum in six nights? Holy megabluck!" The lights turn on, and Cutcobra enters the room. "Hey bro! What's up?" He takes a look at the two bodies. "Whoa! Like, did you do that? Is it just us left? Cuz I'm town. And if you're the vig, that means you're, like, town too! Gnarly! I won!" And so it is, their host enters the room. "Yes, it is over. You two are the lone survivors. I suppose it is best that town won this game, what with the hinky stuff on days four and five. Town might legitimately complained if scum won. At the very least, we can happily say that some of town was playing, and some of scum was playing, so it wasn't a cakewalk for either team. Congratulations!! Congratulations Town! You win! Captain Settle, Cutcobra, Kintober, Jamesn, Scaevola, Mencot, Goliath, Mostly Technic, Stinky Dave, Lind Whisperer, Adventurer1, and Xenophobic, you were the winning team! Thank you all around for your patience. I know there were some hiccups, and I know I lacked tact in places as I scrambled to keep things going, but overall, there were a lot of great things going on in this game, and I'm looking forward to seeing a bunch of new players join the ranks of EB's mafia tradition! I'll be doing a write up rating everyone, and give whatever feedback you want. Anybody is free to post in this topic. Night actions: Player Ratings! I know everyone looks forward to this, and at this point, as a host I dread it. The main reason is this: if any of you have played with me, you know I get irritated with people not playing. I get mad sometimes. I get into mafia, and I think people who play apathetically make the game frustrating for those into it. So, to give feedback, that's where my head is at, but the key point is to be encouraging to all of you, to make you want to try this again! So, I need to choose my words carefully. With that, let me state it up front: Captain Settle and Jluck played well, and everyone else was okay or worse. Keep in mind, that the best mafia players tend to play about 50% good games, but 25% good games may be more realistic. Those other games, you can be competent, but you're not hitting homeruns. You're simply participating well. Also, I don't know most of you, so you were all a big blur from sign up to about day two. Okay, so, person by person: Captain Settle - Great game. I have to imagine you have some mafia experience, since you played quiet enough, didn't freak out when nominated for lynch like many other players did (which pushed them deeper in trouble), and you had a great scum killing record. Well done. Big pass. Cutcobra - I don't know what you did. You showed up and commented, but really, you need to dig your teeth in more in the game. It was no surprise you lasted to the end. Pass, with reservations. Kintober - Now, I gave you a bit of private advice about how to be the cop, and I think you went with it and consulted Settle, but I really don't know how you communicated. I am still baffled about you claiming cop. You could assume scum had a role cop, but they would just kill you if they knew you were the cop. So, that was a bad strategy, but you took the advice about getting in touch with the people you investigated, with the caveat that a godfather exists, so that means a lot. Not much of a mafia school if you don't take instruction. Pass. Jamesn - I think you could have done it a lot better. Put up a much better fight on the day one lynch. Doctor is an overrated role, since it is usually effective only once per game, but claiming it with two hours left on the clock wasn't the best thing to do. I was a little disappointed that a vet played that way. N/A Scaevola - I thought you played okay, but didn't have much time to do anything. Scum wanted you gone, and that's a good thing. Pass. Mencot - I still think you have a very weird attitude to mafia right now. There's this massive confidence, but I think you're missing some fundamentals. Like, that last game, you investigated me (the godfather) and said you didn't think there was a godfather, despite it being the main role of scum. And the thing with Dave. Like, right from the start, I said to not lynch active players immediately, and Dave was one of the most active, actually talking game rather than doing any sort of role playing. So that just seemed the wrong direction to me. I know Jluck kept posting your lists to the scum board, and they were 30% right, but I didn't understand why they chose to kill you. It seemed like Jluck could have strung you along a little longer. Goliath - You were much like Cutcobra. On day one, you were up to lynch, and cracked under the pressure (fair enough, especially early games can get your blood pumping and make your temper rise) but then after that, you became a lazy player. It was no surprise you lasted to the end. Pass, with reservations. Mostly Technic - Taken out too early to make any judgment. Stinky Dave - I thought you were doing great early on except for one point I disagreed with: you were against discussing mechanics (that was you, wasn't it?) In general, it's a way to get the ball rolling, and especially in a game like this where a lot of people had wacky ideas of the number of scum (three vs 16 town?!! What?! ), it was pretty necessary. That thing with Mencot was not good, as discussed on the Deadboard. Lying about evidence against another townie is a bad scene. In a proper game, that would have been auto-lynch for Mencot. Only the n00biness of this group prevented his lynch. Lind Whisperer - I'm really on the fence about your participation. You were somewhat aggressive about how others were playing, but in numerous places, showed that you didn't fully grasp the rules. I think especially in your situation, you needed to be humble. Still have an opinion, but be nicer about it, especially when you're technically a n00b. I debated about explaining why mandatory voting was important, since I worried it may peg you as a townie, but it was an important thing to point out. You were voting with the bandwagon, and were not in any way obligated to do so! Just vote for anybody else, and you will no longer be part of the bandwagon. I've had disagreements on the phrase "throwing away your vote" in other games, since a vote for someone that definitely won't be lynched is a way to make an easy decision and not weigh in with the group (or push for a non-lynch). After that, you never joined the Deadboard, which would have been a place to figure out better ways to approach the game. You really should have spent a lot of time on the Deadboard. I encourage you to continue, but you need to take in a lot more strategy and concepts about the game. Pass, with major reservations. Adventurer1 - Three scum? That was you, right? The rest of your play was okay. Xenophobic - You should never have been lynched. You were up for lynch against Brickelodeon, and scum voted against you to save her. In fact, Jluck and Brickelodeon had been killed and came up scum. Did you bring that up when you were up for lynch? Nope. You, of anyone playing, should have been acutely aware of that, because you were town, and there was no lynch that day... You were town, and you just let them vote you out, no argument, just a "What can I do?" That was bad. Not a matter of failing to succeed, but failing to try. That is the key to this whole thing. Your effort. Fail. Please try again. Pyrovisionary - You broke the rules twice, you were kicked out, you still haven't contacted me to apologise (not in a major, on your knees sort of thing, but a common mature adult, "Sorry, I <excuse>. My bad.). With that type of commitment and attitude, I would have reservations about passing you in future games. You'd have to show a major turnaround. This is not the worst kind of player, but it's pretty high on the host's list of people to avoid. Fail. The Lazy Chicken - Honestly, you weren't doing great when you were pulled out. The part where you said, "People are saying I'm scum for not participating, so I'm participating," was not great strategy. You tried to defend yourself, and failed by posting photos of your PMs. The EB mafia rules may have to be rewritten because of you. I think you'll be three times as good a player three games from now. Trumpet King can be your big brother. As promised, N/A. ​Brickelodeon - You posted a lot of back ideas in thread. In a very early game, it is passable, but people won't put up for it in the future. You will get quickly lynched if you seriously want people to read into the pictures. But, you have real enthusiasm, so I think you'll be a great player in the future. Pass. Richela - You were busy day one, then taken out early. I don't know your abilities, but I appreciated that you kept up with the game afterward. You seemed to have a good attitude. Pass, with reservations. Lord Duvors - You were really active at one point and I had a favourable review of you, then dropped out and never defended yourself. And never took part on the Deadboard, that I remember. Pass, with reservations. Stickfig - You had a weird strategy, posting vote tallies every time you posted. You were really scumming. I mentioned it already, but presenting info isn't enough. You need to make conclusions, whether wrong or right. It's not enough to look active. It is all fluff if that's all you do. Pass. Jluck - You did good, Settle did better. Still think you should have strung Mencot along more. The scum team on the whole took suggestions very well. They had a conflicting voting record, they were generally active. Jluck got busy with the PMs, and the rest of the team would be well-served to do so as well. The more you play town, the easier it gets to merge your town and scum game, and the harder you are to read. Some of you may take umbrage at my results, and I can't help it. If you disagree, the best thing you can do is prove me wrong in the future. Hopefully a proper game comes up soon. I have to dig into my comic work again for the next number of weeks, but if no game has popped up by December, I'll consider hosting another variable ability mafia game (like in Bloodbrick II), which is super fun for n00bs, since everyone gets a chance to have abilities.
  4. The Lazy Chicken makes his defence. "Guys, I can totally exonerate myself, look, I have photos! Look!" The small crowd around him isn't impressed. "Look! Why so ser--" And he disappears. The host is baffled as well, as the whole thing is a bizarre sort of new territory. The day ends. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The night has come. Kintober wanders the halls. "I told them I was the cop. Did they believe me? Do they think I'm the cop?" She hears a sugary voice summon her. "Well howdy, Investigatirino! How do you do?" The Ned Flanders dressed character approaches her with purpose. As he speaks, he raises his tool box toward her. "You must know that publicly claiming cop is a death diddly-eath sentence." And he brings his tool box upon her head. And again. And again. Leaving behind a Town corpse. "Diddly." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Brickelodeon reflects on her continued existence. "I survived. It was a technicality of sorts, but I survived." A whirring and clicking, and the hum of electricity alerts her of something that is probably predictable by now. "I am MODOK, the greatest character ever created, also known as MECHANISED ORGANISM DESIGNED ONLY FOR KILLING. It is not my choice. That is all I can do." Brickelodeon is about to scream when she is vaporised, a hint of scum left wafting in the air. And that is the end of night five and the beginning of day six. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Dr. def is tired and cranky, writing up mafia captions on a Saturday night," MODOK says, surprising the reader. "Already in this game, there has been a rule break God kill, and now on day five, a massive disruption that ruptured the entire day. I trust that the remaining five of you can manage to get through this day without any major problems?" Voting begins in 24 hours.

  5. The crowd stands around, thumb up their butts at the end of day four. "So, no lynch today, eh?" Someone asks Pyrovisionary, "Hey, you only posted once today, and you didn't even vote, despite receiving a warning on day one, and rule 11 being posted every game day stating that a second offence would result in death. That doesn't seem particularly sporting of you. You would think that if you were absolutely too busy to play, you would inform the host of the problem and come up with some sort of solution?" Pyro doesn't answer. He's not here. In an unprecedented event, heretofore unseen on Eurobricks, God themselves enters the scene, plucking the lazy raccoon fetishist from his plot. With a few quick snaps, reflective of the power of an omnipotent ruler, Pyrovisionary is rendered into pieces. The Lazy Chicken laughs, "Why so serious! Ha ha ha!" The crowd eyes him dirtily. "What? Too soon?" ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Night falls, and poor Adventurer1 can't enjoy themselves without their cosplaying Leia partner. "Oh dear, I'm in a night scene, I know what that means." A dark figure approaches. "Fa- father? Is that you?" Adventurer meekly asks the figure. "No." They are enveloped with a force blast, rupturing all internal organs. "It... kind of... tickles!" ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Later, the Batmen are getting ready to say goodnight. "No worry guys, I'll be in bed in a sec, I just want to do one more round of the floor and see what's up." "Uh, which one am I? I'm the comic book Batman, so I guess I'm Jluck?" Jluck hears a cackling voice that chills his spine. "Riddle me this, Jluck, when is a banana not a banana?" Jluck grunts. "I'm not a big fan of riddles." Striking the cosplayer with his massive banana, he tells the none-too-humourous answer: "When it's banana splitting your head open!" ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The good doctor makes his filmed appearance. "Well, again, this is an interesting result. You'll be unsurprised that Pyrovisionary is town. It's rare that someone plays so lazily when they are involved with such a tight knit team. He was the quintessential "lazy townie" that you hear so much about in these games. Adventurer1? Total townie. But Jluck? Utter scumbag, through and through." He pauses to offer a pep talk: "You've taken out three scumbags in four days. Not bad at all. Can you keep it up?" ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Day five has begun. Voting will begin in 24 hours.

  6. And so it begins. Letters are sent out around the land to giddy Eurobricks members. Stickfig opens his mail. "Wow! A cosplay party! How'd they know I liked to dress up as Cyclops? He is the most misunderstood of the X-Men, carrying the burden of responsibility of leadership that no other does, while at the same time, suffering the guilt of losing his girlfriend to an elemental being, losing his first wife, who was a demonic clone of that girlfriend, and when finally getting to marry the girl, she dies too!" he ruminates in a long Claremontian schpiel. "Nobody understands me." Far, far across town, a young fellow with questionable acting chops named Adventurer1 opens his mailbox and perks up. "Honey! Put the buns in! We's is goin' to a cosplay party! Woooee!" Meanwhile, an old man finds his place in the world. "Whao, might I, Mencot the old, find a place in this world? Perhaps at a cosplay party?" he contemplates to himself in his small bachelor apartment. "Lo, I have no costume, these garbs will have to suffice." In a poorly MOC'ed representation of the New Mexico desert, Lind Whisperer opens her invite. "Lind Whisperer go party, make friend. Lind Whisperer so lonely." Long story short, everyone got an invite and showed up at an old theatre at roughly the same time. Inside, the crowd starts to get to know each other. "Yeah, Scaevola and I have been doing cosplay together for years. It's kind of sexy, you know?" Lord Duvors looks them up and down. "You know they're brother and sister though, right?" Scaevola looks a little embarrassed. "But not in the first movie. They kiss. They kiss in the second movie too." "Yeah, but they were still related. It's not like the first movie was in a different continuity." "..." Luckily the awkward silence is broken by the Lazy Chicken. "Why so serious?! Ha ha ha!" No, that's not going to get old. XM explains himself to Kintober. "Obi-Wan is the epitome of Jedi values. He is honourable, brave, and British." Kintober is diplomatic. "Yes, he's nice and all, but why would you choose to be a prequel version?" "Why so serious?! Ha ha ha!" Oh jeez. Stinky Dave is putting on the moves. "So, you know the Ghostbusters were all men, right?" Brickolodean has heard it before. "You know the Ghostbusters are fictional characters, right? That characters are limited by the imaginations of creators, and not stuck in some uptight concept of canon, right? That the number of male characters in fandom massively outnumbers the number of women, forcing women to take action in order to participate, right?" "Um..." "Why so serious?! Ha ha ha!" Oh.... Finally, a real debate has broken out. Jluck states with alarming confidence, "Obviously the comic Batman is superior, it's the source material." Captain Settle isn't having it. "The movies have a viewership that dwarfs the comics, obviously that is the form that resonates most with people." Goliath comes along to settle things. "Fellows, if I may. First of all, popularity is not and never has been a quantifier of quality. Absolutely horrendous things 'resonate' with the public. The comic Batman is far superior to the film Batman, and not only because it's capable of multiple tones at once, while the movies have one tone they must stick to. The main reason is the movies insistence on being 'serious' when it's in essence, a totally ridiculous character: a child's idea of what a badass adult is like. The character is simply wish fulfilment: no parents, filthy rich, super handsome, always succeeds, he's a Mary Sue!... If you can't have a little tongue in cheek humour with that, you're possibly emotionally stunted. Objectively, Spider-Man is the superior character. While Batman tortures himself over an event he could never have prevented (and is incapable of having healthy relationships on top of that), Spider-Man has a true reason to fight as he does, has powers, which makes him winning every time less ridiculous, and to top it off, he has functioning relationships. He's not a 'playboy billionaire.' Anyone who thinks Batman is a better character..." Foot steps approach, and the trio brace themselves for an unwanted statement. "I'm Arctic Batman." So, the movie is about to start, and the motley crew settles down. Pyrovisionary grumbles, "Figures Marge Simpson would sit up front." The lights dim, and a handsome figure fills the screen. "Forgive me if I monologue here, I am short for time. I have another engagement to make. This is my grand scheme, You may call me... DR. DEF. I have brought you here to play a little game. A number of you work for me. One by one, they will be taking you out... for good! I am a sporting man, and will give you a chance to live. If you kill them before they kill you, you may live. May..." He pauses. "You may begin. Voting opens in 24 hours. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We're playing. It's started. To begin with, some opening day strategies. 1. Should you lynch the person who votes first? No. That person is being pro-active and trying to get the game going. You are about 90% likely to lynch a townie day one, and it can't be helped. But, this can lead to good points in future days. Consider who voted for who, who switched votes, etc. etc. It will show someone to be town or scum. <Scum, consider voting for a teammate on day one or two. If that person is killed, you'll look good, and if you're killed, that person will look good. Ruin the voting record for town> 2. How do decide your vote day one? Vibes. Who's just being nonsensical all day? Who seems like, if they ended up town and not scum, wouldn't make a big difference? Of course, you want scum, but if you don't, err on the side of safety. <Scum, as long as it isn't you, you're good. BUT, don't go defending townies strongly so that you look good when they come up town. That will backfire. Only scum knows who town is.> 3. How much role-playing is too much? Role-playing should be considered the dressing on the salad, not the salad. So it's fine to do, but it isn't the point of the game. Herica is basically role-playing, and, to be honest, very little strategy (I'll use my strongest weapon against the bad guy, etc). Mafia is you outwitting other humans. It's something you get better at. What are people doing? Why? That's the point. Then role-play on top of that. 4. Anything else for day one? Consider day one you placing the sticks down for a fire, night one will be lighting the fire, and things will take shape from there. Send PMs to people you suspect and say you seem to trust them. Send PMs to people you think are townish, and don't tell much. DON'T BLAB YOUR ROLE DAY ONE. Don't blab. Have fun. All roles in this game are from the section on this page under the heading Roles which are explicitly Normal: http://wiki.mafiascu...tle=Normal_Game Have fun!
