    Default Upick 2: Electric Boogaloo

    NIGHT 2

    This phase will end on 23/10/2021 at 21:00 GMT.

    (If you were in the previous Upick, tl;dr it works exactly the same as before.)

    Spoiler: Standard Mafia Stuff
    Show
    Mafia, AKA Werewolf, is a game in which members of an uninformed majority, known as the Town, who don't know anyone else's alignment but their own, try to find members of an informed minority, called the Mafia, who know who is one of them and who isn't. The game starts at "Day", and players vote for who they think - or are pretending to think - is a member of the Mafia. Whoever gets the most votes is eliminated at the end of the Day. After each Day is one Night, in which people activate abilities that they may have access to, and the Mafia can choose one person between them to eliminate. The game ends when only one faction remains, or nothing can prevent this from happening.
    Spoiler: Specific Game Rules
    Show
    • Days and Nights are 48 hours each.
    • The execution vote will kill the person with the most votes, counting the last vote that is not crossed out. For example, Avatarvecna, Xihirli, Avatarvecna is a vote for Xihirli, not AvatarVecna. Tied votes will kill the person who was first to get to at least that many votes the last time they did so. For example, if Xihirli is at 4 votes, then AvatarVecna is at 4 votes, then Xihirli drops to 3 votes and goes back up to 4 votes, AvatarVecna will die, not Xihirli.
    • You may vote for No Execution. No Execution is calculated the same way as any vote for a specific person, but choosing not to vote is not counted at all. For example, four votes for No Execution and four votes for AvatarVecna is resolved like any other tie, but if there are four votes for AvatarVecna and four people not voting at all, AvatarVecna will die.
    • No early day end or "Hammer" vote is used, even if more than half of people end up voting for the same person at some point. Days are always 48 hours.
    • Some abilities may require a public broadcast that you are using them. I will resolve them as soon as possible; if you have an ability that won't be useful at the end of the day, using it near the end of the day might be inadvisable! Do not fake using abilities requiring a public broadcast (Such as REVEAL: INNOCENT CHILD or DAYVIG: XIHIRLI). This means you, Vecna and Valmark. Anyone doing so will die, and also lose the game even if their faction would otherwise win the game.
    • Kill flavours may tell you something interesting about how someone died, and what faction did it.
    • All actions are given a priority number. First goes first, last goes last. Generally, this tends to follow Natural Action Resolution, which is to say, abilities that can't possibly be affected by another ability go first.
    • Either you'll get a faction QuickTopic because you're the Mafia, or you won't, because you're not, and will have to use your personal QuickTopic. You can't get more QuickTopics unless you have an ability that says you can, so no chatting with your fellow players behind the scenes.
    Spoiler: Role Assignment: Upick
    Show
    Upicks are so named because you pick your role!

    When the game is in the preparation stage - that is, after everyone has signed up to the game, just before Day 1, you will have a chance to send me two character concepts. These character concepts can be whatever you like so long as it's board-appropriate and otherwise just obviously not yikesy in any other way (be reasonable about this); the first concept should be your first preference, and please link an explanation for both concepts if they're something I might not know about. Other Upicks I've seen have featured anime characters, tanks, and the concept of YouTube Music videos as characters so do whatever you like.

    Please don't use other real people - board members or otherwise - as characters, partly because yikes and partly because I don't want to have to write the sentence "AvatarVecna's role was Xihirli".

    I will roll up the list of who is which faction before I create your character roles, so if you use a character who's actually a mafia member or actually a werewolf, you may still end up as town. I will then assign abilities that I think are appropriate to one of your chosen characters. I will try to use the first one, but if there's some problem with them I'll use the second one instead. They will match as best as I can make them while also (a) making sense within the context of Mafia, (b) not being very terribly overpowered, and (c) not being horrible to play with.

    Abilities I promise I won't be using are:

    • Cults and other alignment changing abilities;
    • Dreaming gods, false seers, inventors who don't know what their inventions do, and other hidden/random chance abilities;
    • Jesters (a role which wins the game by being executed);
    • Antisocial, Flagbearer and other modifiers which mess with who wins and loses the game to a significant extent;
    • Effects such as death millers which lie about death-reveal information;
    • "Janitor", "Cannibal" and other effects which can prevent deaths from being revealed.
    • Effects such as Beloved Princess which mess with the day/night order;
    • Effects that restrict how a player can post other than by killing them;
    • "Enabler" or "Switch" effects that can shut off a specified type of role (rather than roleblocking a specific player);
    • "Bus Driver", "Transporter", "Transmuter", "Mind-controller" "Mindslaver", "Witch", "Lightning Rod", "Mirror" or other names for a variety of effects which force someone to target someone other than their intended target;
    • "Normalizers" or other effects which permanently alter other people's roles (short of killing them);
    • "Phantom Queen", "Reviver", "Resurrectionist", "Retributionist" or other effects which change how death works for players other than yourself.


    However, this does not mean that any of these won't show up:
    • "Doublevoter", "Loved", "Hated" and other modifiers that can change the number of votes flying around or the number needed to kill someone;
    • "Gladiator" or other effects which limit who is a valid target for a vote;
    • "Godfather", "Framer", "Lawyer", "Psychotrooper" or other effects which cause someone else's investigation to provide misleading information;
    • "Lover" and other roles that can cause a player to die when a condition is met;
    • Roles which return the truth or falsehood of an arbitrary statement;
    • "Copier" or "Illusionist" abilities which copy someone else's ability and use it on another specified target;
    • "Parity cop" or "Parity seer" roles, which provide the same result for two members of the same faction, but no indication of which faction yields which result (so it might yield "Winter" for town and "Summer" for Mafia);
    • "Restless Spirit" or "Vengeful" roles which change how death works for you;
    • "Medium" or "Necromancer" roles which can talk in dead chat while alive.

    I'll be extending the preparation phase, probably by one day, because one player didn't get their info post. Apologies.

    SETUP PHASE END

    Three things:

    First, you are given two role names: one proper role name and one thing that's like "roleblocker" or "bulletproof vigilante" or something. The second one is meaningless mechanically, it's just a shorthand for roughly what you can expect out of your abilities.

    Second, I've put descriptive priorities instead of priority numbers in all your abilities, but if you want to know how they stack up, it's:

    1. Fast
    2. Roleblock
    3. Protection
    4. Kill
    5. Investigative
    6. Slow


    Which I think is pretty much how it was last time.

    Third:

    You feel an ominous presence looming over you. It might be a good idea to hide your identities.

    DAY 1 START

    This phase will end at 22:00 GMT, 17/10/2021.

    I'm sure, he won't mind if you call him Cao. Much shorter.

    Sorry Bat. But do you really want to kill me day 1? Remember, as a wolf, I tend to bus my partners

    All I know is that I don't really know anything. Killing you for destroying what little faith I had left in my ability to read people seems like a good enough reason at this point.

    That does sound vaguely familiar. It seems like the theme of the day is quickly becoming "Rogan's past coming back to haunt him".

    In my first game, PJ, I killed the Seer night 1. And Xi(wolf) tried to get me killed for this day 2.

    Since I joke about this myself, Xi has a point. I guess I should promise I ain't going to kill at night this time. But I don't expect anybody to believe me...

    Only one game as town. In the second game, my team killed two town seers, but I didn't carry the kill in those cases.
    And in love letter, there was no proper Seer to kill.

    Two points of interest: I forgot to mention this but in case it's of strategic relevance, the mafia have daytalk; I feel it's unfair to let you incorrectly assume they don't if you're familiar with Crazy Idea or other games where they don't, and I am checking QTs periodically so if you have questions, try to ask them there rather than PMing me.

    Hi all, I think this is the first time I'm playing with you, but since I've read Love Letter, Afterlife and Percy Jackson, I feel like sharing that I had suspected AvatarVecna of being maffia all four times (yes, even after being resurrected), so my firm decision for this game is to only lynch her if everybody else does.

    I am, however, going to symbolically vote for Xihirli today, because without her YOLO wombat hunt in Upick 1 there was a (slim) chance that game might have ended with a win (for more people than just the serial killer).
    78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature.
    The cleric was walking through a forest when he heard a loud explosion. Upon investigation, he quickly uncovered the ruins of a large tower he couldn't remember seeing there before. He decided to search the rubble for anything worth looting. At that point, I told the wizard to start rolling to see if he would stabilise.
    Hi Gac! Sorry for lynching you :(

    Voting for
    Batcatthat
    Because that name is an abomination and it must be purged.

    Voting Xihirli because she screwed me over in the first UPick game by being unkillable.
    (Okay, we would have lost that game regardless, but still.)
    I'm Chaotic Good! Ish!

    Seems like Xi and I have something in common. We both get targeted for our pervious games.

    Which reminds me...
    I am not willing to vote for AV today. Not willing to vote for someone new (to me) either.
    I would not like to vote for Xi today, unless I have to do so in order to save myself.

    This does not mean I think they are town. But I think, they deserve a chance to play and / or are nice to have around. So, while there is not much to go by, I'd rather lynch someone else.

    I think, I will go to bed soon. I hope there will be some interesting posts tomorrow. Good night.

    Is there a role who gains power by knowing the role names of other players? Perhaps some kind of death note? Write the (role)name down and the player will die. But this seems quite weak, unless it can be used more than once per phase or has some other advantage.

    I think it's or actual names, or perhaps guessing our powers. Or it's just flavor for why we're all being suspsicious.

    My guess is that there is a hunter in the game who has to find and kill one specific character, and if Unavenger only warns that particular player then it becomes too easy if everybody else starts dropping hints about who they are playing. There might even be several people who have some win condition/mechanic that requires them to figure out who's who, since that's one of the more exciting aspects of this particular game.
    78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature.
    The cleric was walking through a forest when he heard a loud explosion. Upon investigation, he quickly uncovered the ruins of a large tower he couldn't remember seeing there before. He decided to search the rubble for anything worth looting. At that point, I told the wizard to start rolling to see if he would stabilise.
    Hi Gac! Sorry for lynching you :(

    Not in my experience.
