    Default [Mafia/WW] A Crazy Idea

    Welcome to the Crazy Idea mafia, which is my take on the Great/Greater/Greatest idea mafia games. If you don't know how it works, read on!

    The Basics of Mafia

    Every player is part of one of the game's factions: usually either a member of the town (who are a large faction unaware of who are town and who are mafia) or the mafia (who are a small faction, but are aware of the other members of the mafia, can communicate with each other, and can remove one target from the game each night). The game cycles through days and nights, and each day, all of the players in the game vote between them for one player to be removed from the game. The game ends when only one faction remains, or nothing can prevent this from happening.

    A Crazy Idea

    You will be dealt three cards. Each of those cards will have a power, and a faction. You must choose one of the three cards and gain that power, then choose a second card and gain that faction. For example, if you draw "Killing Town", "Investigative Mafia", and "Innocent-Looking Alien", you could choose Killing from the first card, mafia from the second card and discard the card saying "Innocent-Looking alien."

    Note: Discarded cards, and only discarded cards, are public. All players will get information like this:

    "Unavenger discarded Innocent-Looking Alien".

    If by some miracle one faction starts with control of the game (for example, 4 town+5 mafia or 9 town), all cards are reshuffled and picks start again. No cards are revealed. This is very rare.

    Factions

    If there are fewer than 10 players, there will be two factions, the town and the mafia. If there are 10 or more players, alien cards will be added to the deck. If there are 14 or more players, werewolf cards will be added to the deck. If there are 18 or more players, cultist cards will be added to the deck.

    The town are your bog-standard town. You're more likely to have lots of allies as town, but you don't get any special abilities.
    The mafia and the werewolves are both ordinary mafia-style factions. Each one gets a nightkill, and each one has factional chat.
    The aliens don't have a nightkill, but do get a factional chat. Any non-killing role is stronger on an alien than it is on any other faction.
    The cult have a factional conversion. Any time the cult use their ability on a member of the town, that player joins the cult. Any time the cult use their ability on anyone else, the cult is informed of the faction (but not the role) of the target.

    There is also one Survivor card and one Serial Killer card thrown into the mix. The survivor wins if they last to the end of the day, and the Serial Killer acts as a mafia of one. If you were dealt, but didn't pick, one of those roles, you know none are in the game!

    Abilities

    The ability on your card may change depending on the faction, so they are grouped under headings here. For example, if your faction is "Alien" and your role is listed as "Innocent-Looking", then you gain the alien's Innocent-Looking role, "Psychotrooper."

    If you are a Survivor you gain the listed town ability, and if you are a werewolf or a serial killer you gain the listed mafia ability.

    Killing

    Town or Alien Vigilante: Once per night, you can choose one target and kill that target.

    Mafia Strongman: When you perform the factional kill, it can't be blocked.

    Cult Fanatic: When you perform the factional conversion, if you target a member of the mafia, a werewolf or an alien, the target is killed.

    Investigative

    Town Seer: Once per night, you can choose one target. You learn that target's FACTION.

    Mafia or Cult Spy: Once per night, you can choose one target. You learn that target's ROLE TYPE.

    Alien Researcher: Once per night, you can choose one target. You learn that target's FACTION and ROLE.

    Innocent-Looking

    Town Innocent Child: At any point, day or night, you can post "REVEAL: INNOCENT CHILD". When you do, all of the votes on you are removed (although they can be re-added) and I will confirm your alignment as soon as I can. You will be revealed as either town or survivor, as appropriate.

    Mafia or Cult Secret Agent: If investigated during the night by a seer, you are listed as TOWN. If you are investigated during the night by a spy, you give NO RESULT. If you are investigated by a researcher, you give TOWN INNOCENT CHILD.

    Alien Psychotrooper: Once only, at night, you can use your ability. Whether or not your ability is active, you have the powers of a secret agent above. If you activate your ability, ALL investigations are incorrect.

    Protective

    Town, Mafia or Cult Doctor: Once per night, you can choose a player. That player is immune to night kills the same night. You cannot target yourself twice consecutively.

    Alien Protector: Once per night, you can choose a player. That player is immune to everything the same night. You cannot target yourself twice consecutively.

    Roleblocking

    Town, Mafia or Cult Roleblocker: Once per night, you can choose a player. That player cannot activate their ability this night.

    Alien Mindslaver: Once per night, you can choose a player. That player cannot activate their ability this night. You may activate their ability by attempting to choose a new target for it. If you choose a valid target, you use their ability on that target.

    Tracking

    Town Watcher: Once per night, you can choose a player. You learn WHO TARGETED that player.

    Mafia Tracker: Once per night, you can choose a player. You learn WHO WAS TARGETED BY that player.

    Cult Stalker: Once per night, you can choose a player. You learn WHAT ACTIONS WERE TARGETED AT that player.

    Alien Overseer: Once per night, you can choose a player. You learn WHO DID WHAT TO that player and WHO WAS TARGETED BY that player, but NOT WHAT THAT PLAYER DID.

    (Suppose person A heals person B, and person B roleblocks person C. The following are the investigative results on B:

    Watcher: A targeted B.
    Tracker: B targeted C.
    Stalker: B was healed.
    Overseer: A healed B, and B targeted C.

    Jack of All Trades

    Town, Mafia, Cult or Alien JOAT: You may use your faction's Investigative, Protective and Roleblocking powers once each ever.

    Universal Backup

    Town, Mafia, Cult or Alien Universal Backup: The first time ever that a member of your faction dies, you gain their powers. If you are the only member of your faction, you immediately gain the role listed on your discarded card instead.

    If anyone is interested, there should be around 48 combinations.

    I make it 56: (Town+Mafia+WW+Alien+Cult+Surv+SK) is 7 and (Kill+Invest+IL+Protect+RB+Track+JOAT+UB) is 8. There are also nineteen differently named roles (Vigil, Strong, Fanatic, Seer, Spy, Researcher, IC, Secret Agent, Psychotrooper, Doctor, Protector, RB, Mindslaver, Watcher, Tracker, Stalker, Overseer, JOAT and UB). In a game of infinite size, 42 different role-alignment combinations can appear in one game.

    Yeah, you're right, there were 56, not 48. I think I skipped the cultists by mistake. Or counted only sk or ww instead of both.

    @Valmark: you might want to sign up a bit later to avoid self-voting.
    Werewolf games won: 7 (as town three times, wolf, evil mutant, town a fourth time and Russian spy. Don't ask.)

    Werewolf games lost: 1 (as survivor)

    Number of deaths: 4 (killed night one for trying (and mostly failing) to do crazy stuff; killed night zero for being crazy enough to narrate a game; horribly murdered by Valmark, Xihirli and Lord Athos for no particular reason night one; killed night two for being the Seer)

    No, it means you could be a murderer. But sure, you look cute as well if you like.
