The village started with only 12 guaranteed members, but had quite a lot more powers than is usual, at one point in the game there were up to 6 villagers that were immune to death that night! There were only 12 guaranteed villagers because I took into account neutrals that would want to help village, power of village roles, and mafia crossfires. The village: Toothache was the standard village alliance checker, but unfortunately he died on the first night without accomplishing anything. Was later revived by Team Aether, which was a good choice, but Da Letter El was unable to unite the remaining village members or get many claims, and died with Team Aether before he was able to sign on and defend Team Aether who he knew was clean. He was checking asim on the one night he had available but was directed to Phantasia by Eo Ut Mortus whom he found clean, but was unable to tell anyone at all with the speed lynch on the following day. Although, Suicune's revival did have the hilarious side effect of de-wolfing asim temporarily. Standard martyr ability commonly found in many villages, he martyred Team Rocket's silencer, Mekkah, the first night, but forgot he was silenced! He posted, resulting in a godkill, and didn't even get to tell anyone before he died who he had targeted that night. Agape was standard village watcher role with a twist, if he survived until later game, if any bad guys (or good I suppose) had targeted him, they would have found themselves hooked + silenced for a cycle. However, he decided to use his second ability, Singing, on Nights 2 and 3 instead of gathering information for the village, and nobody targeted him on those nights. He then died a few nights later without doing anything else, as he was mostly repeatedly hooked. This role could pseudo-inspect as well as copy roles, but all Thunda did was find out that Team Aether's ability was 'Night X - Fishing' on Night 1, and then led a failed lynch against LonelyNess that got himself lynched instead. Mayor and itemfinder role in one, with the 'corpse looting' item transfer system in this game, it was relatively easy for the mafia to suddenly 'stock up' on lots of items, and this was a role that was supposed to help identify possible mafia. Sidd gave Pyromanic's role PM apparently to Team Rocket, however, which resulted in a failed kill on Scrubs while Pyromanic was protecting Scrubs being turned into a successful kill on Pyromanic as the Rockets changed targets that night. After that, jumpluff voted with Scrubs, and then Jedil kindly agreed to sub in, being informed that he was about to die in one day to contribute his aid for one vote. Thanks Jedil! A standard vanilla BPV role that's been quite uncommon lately in small mafias, so much so that every single person had Phantasia marked down as evil in their spreadsheet. Also started out with a one time BPV item that could have helped the village (or mafia!) but was stolen on Night 2 by ExplorerAce. Didn't really do anything that helped the village all game and just sat around, and was never targeted for a night kill either (except asim got martyred away from targeting Phantasia by Mr_Goodbar.) The village thief that could also 'find Pokemon' if he whiffed, but managed to come up hands empty 5 nights in a row for the first 5 nights of the game. On Night 6, he stole all of Scrubs' items except for the Bracelet which Umbreon Dan got first, and then on Night 7 he was stolen from by Umbreon Dan's increased priority and then died to asim's time delayed kill. The village 'backup' role, he would fish up a new item each night that would (ostensibly) help the village. All in all, he fished up a Leppa Berry (use night ability twice - this would have worked for Pyromanic too!), Sitrus Berry (eat to gain 2 extra votes,) Enigma Berry (auto protection from all night roles for one night if targeted,) and the Revive, which he chose to bring Suicune back to life with, a great choice, because Revive's effects only lasted 1 day/night cycle. He did attempt to give the Enigma Berry to Scrubs though, on the same night that Scrubs attempted to steal from him, so unknowingly, Scrubs screwed himself over a bit with that by using up the Enigma Berry. The Master Ball was stolen by the Neos on Night 1, and he was inspected by the Rockets/Neos by Night 2, but survived remarkably long because of his ambiguous role. Unfortunately, was speed lynched by Scrubs before getting on to defend himself. Standard bodyguard role that could self-protect (all the bodyguards in this game could self-protect.) Never did anything with the Blue Orb since macle never claimed item identifier, which was an item thief role. Accent, on being subbed in, protected LightWolf instead of LonelyNess, and then the following night, died to Scrubs (while protecting him!), losing the Blue Orb and giving Scrubs the ability to steal from then on (the wolves automatically knew how to use items.) Village hooker role that could only hook male humans, which the mafias were largely composed of. Also had a special item that could hook Celebi only, but the GS Ball didn't see any use until Night 9 of the game when asim hooked askaninjask with it. Hooked Thorns Night 1 and prevented his theft, and died Night 2 to asim's rand targeting. Jack of all trades role used here, with mole-proof inspection, hooker, bodyguard, and vigilante being the available options. Tried to inspect LonelyNess both Night 1 and Night 2, (but changed to Jimbo on Night 1,) and ended up getting hooked Night 1 and not being able to inspect the already dead LonelyNess on Night 2, which would have made for an interesting village/LN team, discovering LN's true win conditions. Inspected and cleaned Sidd Night 3, which ended up in his death as Sidd obtained his role PM and promptly gave it to Team Rocket, resulting in his death while protecting Scrubs (from a kill, too!) on Night 4. A really unlucky player. :( Unfortunately, Jimbo was subbed out on Night 1 because I 'accidentally told him too much info,' and macle came in to replace him. Was stoned on Night 1 by Scrubs, turning him into a BPV for two nights, but claimed both the roles of unsilenceable and BPV, leaving the mafia to ignore him instead of waste roles on him. Never claimed item identifier to my knowledge, leaving the village with a plethora of mystery items. Eventually got lynched by secret ballot on Day 3, and left the village without any real village leader ever again. asim was basically village inspector that turned wolf if a specific user died. He could also steal the Master Ball only and attempt to turn himself into a wolf that could recruit Suicune, and he left a Poke Ball behind everywhere he attempted to steal a Master Ball. He had the ability to hide himself from all night roles instead of kill at night (stolen from Dark Link in Zelda Mafia,) but he couldn't hide more than 2 nights in a row or kill 2 nights in a row. It was actually kind of pointless to write a mole pm for asim as asim was the only full inspector in the entire game. If he had published Suicune's info early on, he would have gained a partial ability to protect Suicune from death, but was turned into wolf on Night 1 with Toothache's death. asim also lost moling abilities after turning wolf, but was never rolechecked. Did well convincing everyone that Eusine was a non-threatening role to have around, since his existence was basically revealed to everyone on Night 1 with Suicune's death. Every kill he made managed to be concealed by some other factor even up to the very last nights of the game, with a combination of luck and oversight by other players. (Mr_Goodbar martyred asim's kill onto himself, but the kill was blamed on Scrubs, who had failed his kill that night, for instance.) Everyone believed he was the village inspector up to the very end. Congratulations! He flew under everyone's radar, and successfully pulled off a wolf's win. Team Rocket: A borrowed concept from vow mafia, the future leader(s) of the mafia would keep the thief and kill choose options. GTS never self-protected despite claiming to be the world's biggest target, and died on N3 because of it. His bodyguards also had the interesting side effect of allowing him to claim the Stalker role, which he did, but also told LonelyNess he idled it, causing suspicion. He protected Mekkah Night 1 which was a good guess as HD tried to kill Mekkah, which failed anyways because HD was hooked by ExplorerAce. Standard hooker fare, that also started with a rolename inspection item that would look like a regular Pokedex. After his death though, I just called it the Black Pokedex since there was no need to conceal it. Nailed Eo Ut Mortus as Pryce and a bad guy, which every villager seems to have forgotten confirmed Scrubs' inspection of Eo Ut Mortus. Was lynched when Scrubs made a deal with Eo's team to work together. A twist on the standard reverse martyr that also came with role finding abilities. Vacuum never did anything except PM me once with a question, so soon after Bass came in. Found out that Phantasia had no night role under GTS's orders on Night 1, which I think was information never relayed to the two substitute members, Bass and askaninjask (correct me if I'm wrong?) Bass tried pretty hard for his team, but kept getting hooked by Eo's team while they were trying to hook askaninjask and never got anything besides 'you were hooked, you were hooked, you are dead' while he was alive. :( He could have stopped the hook or even kills by threatening the user that targeted him, but repeatedly attempted to threaten Sidd/jumpluff, a villager. Another candidate for 'unluckiest user' with Pyromanic. A role that could silence OR persuade, but persuade wouldn't work on all characters. Mekkah chose to keep the persuade part hidden until late game, and tried to silence LonelyNess on Night 1 which was martyred away by Ace Matador. and Vacuum's idleness. Took over the team after GTS died, but then got lynched right away because Mekkah got inspected. Tough luck, man :( A different kind of kidnap, the time jump actually set everything that happened later by one day/night cycle, including votes and deaths. He also had the extra kills for his team, so it was quite lucky that askaninjask survived quite late into the game. Needed the boss, Carr, dead to win, but it was balanced out by the fact that Carr was quite likely to die to natural causes anyhow. Many thanks to askaninjask for subbing in for Lightwolf who was unable to continue the game, and for staying active and not losing hope in winning. If only you had ever counted the kills and suspected asim, :( Neo Team Rocket: At one point, it looked like Neo Team Rocket had the game all sealed up with repeated hooking abilities, and 4 users alive to Team Rocket's 1. However, Eo never made use of his team's available Martyr + Bodyguard combination, keeping bodyguard on himself, when the hooker and night kill abilities would have transferred in the event of his death. Also chose to tell his teammates to Scrubs, resulting in a future lynch of Shade and 100% accurate coordinated killing between Scrubs and askaninjask later, wiping out Neo Team Rocket. You could have had this game :(. Eo's best moment was turning around a 9-0 lynch on him despite 2 inspections, and lynching the other mafia instead, which was amazing to see pulled off. This was Mr_Goodbar's original role PM, a martyr with some game knowledge. An inventor was later added last minute because Earthworm felt that the Neos might have been slightly weak compared to the Rockets, but it ended up being unused. Came with the 'numbers knowledge' role that was a safe claim, but to my knowledge Mr_Goodbar stayed low all game and talked to nobody. Ended up martyring asim away from a failed kill on Phantasia onto himself, beginning Neo Team Rocket's downfall. Mafia mayor to go along with a village mayor, could also creatively use announcements like Shade attempted to and have a secret voting contest to get rid of any problematic user that was heavily rigged in Neo's favor to win. COTH claimed DJ Mary early game to avoid suspicion, and broke a record by being the only user to not be targeted for the first 5 nights in a row. Shade later subbed in as COTH had internet problems Optional negative voter and item-tied bodyguard abilities, as well as another itemfinder. Listened to his team and played his part, but unfortunately got stolen from by reachzero eventually and then killed by the Scrubs/askaninjask alliance. Only used his negative vote ability once, to help Shade, which ended up being part of the hatchet on Shade's grave when HD died. Role finder and item thief in one, he stole successfully from Team Aether on Night 1 and Scrubs on Night 2 (when Scrubs didn't have a kill!) Unfortunately, was killed in crossfire by the other team and was the first casualty of his team, so he didn't get to do much, sorry :( A neutral vigilante that could only win with village or wolf options, but came up bad on inspection to anyone but Pyromanic. His was a role that both helped and hurt village, but he never got to use it, being targeted by a ton of roles on both Night 1 and Night 2, getting killed by GTS on Night 2. Had the best chance of leading the village successfully and accurately pegged many false claims, except for Lightwolf's claim which he posted about, leading to his own death as Accent decided to protect the 'secondary village trusted person' instead, and COTH's claim. The role this game's new corpse looting item system was designed for, so items don't go out of this game and he instant loses. A neutral that would annoy all the factions but could win with any of them. reachzero accurately pegged the location of the Magma Emblem on Mekkah, but kept getting martyred by Mr_Goodbar. reachzero lost track of the rules of the game though, and targeted a dead person to steal from on Night 4, while finally getting one of his items, Red Orb, from HD on Night 5. Umbreon Dan ended up replacing reachzero, claiming around, and finally managed to obtain all his items right before asim would have killed him otherwise. Good job! In case people were wondering, the Magma Emblem would have provided Brodie with immunity to all night roles except kills. Ah, Scrubs. Before this game, I hadn't heard of you, and by the end of this game, I was duly impressed. Fooled people with a pm that had grammatical errors and started with two unrelated items (which he had to include to cover his ass) and led the village all the way to its doom for the longest time without coming under suspicion. Had a few close calls on being killed by other users, but lasted all the way until deciding to vote Umbreon Dan who could have won with him instead of the silenced askaninjask. Had the most complete info on the game except for accurate information on asim. Good job on moling the village and Eo's mafia into trusting you, that was amazing. Successfully misled the village into killing off Team Aether, Da Letter El by extension, and jumpluff/Jedil, all without coming under suspicion. Had a wolf that had item-dependent abilities, both of which were lost by the end of Night 2, but managed to make a successful recovery thanks to the corpse loot item system. Host's awards: Best NPC: macle, for being the only real NPC to attempt leading the village. That's saying something. Worst NPC: Sidd, for selling out his own teammate to his demise. This caused much confusion and got me requests from all 4 factions to sub him out. Honorary mention goes to Ace Matador. for getting godkilled under silence and not telling people about martyring Mekkah. Best Team Rocket: askaninjask, survived incredibly long and almost had the game... if not for asim. Worst Team Rocket: Vacuum, who gave the impression that he was active, but then disappeared into thin air. Best Neo Team Rocket: Shade, the strategies he thought about using were well planned out and solid, and found a really creative usage for his announcement ability as well. Unfortunately, timezones prevented him from discussing much with Eo, and he was kind of left alone and then subsequently lynched. Worst Neo Team Rocket: Eo Ut Mortus, sorry man, but you really screwed up on choosing not to use the repeated hook on the same person, by far one of the most powerful mafia roles, on Scrubs or a suspected Rocket, but a villager instead. Best Neutral: asim/Umbreon Dan/reachzero, congrats for winning! Inconspicuousness wins the day. Worst Neutral: LonelyNess, for playing in a way that gets him on everyone's enemy list and killed ASAP. Sorry man, there's not that many neutrals to choose from :(, you did have a pretty good spreadsheet but Scrubs one-upped you on that with more accuracy later on. Thanks to everyone for playing!
