    Mafia XXVIII: Star Wars - Sign up thread

    If you love Star Wars or the chance to win credits, sign up for the next exciting mafia game! I'm planning to start the game Monday the 30th to give some folks a bit of a break.

    Episode XXVIII
    A New Mafia


    It is a dark time for the Rebel Innocents. Having been pursued relentlessly across the galaxy by the evil Empire, the Rebels have established a new secret base. Unfortunately, Imperial spies soon discover the location of the hidden Rebel hideout.
    The Imperial mafia quickly infiltrate the base, biding their time for the right moment to eliminate the rebel scum and restore order to galaxy.
    But the Rebels will fight valiantly to rid their base of the Imperial Mafia as they continue the struggle to bring freedom to the galaxy.
    Imperial Mafia -
    The Imperials have the Death Star, which allows one instakill for the game, day or night, in addition to the regular night kill. This kill cannot be prevented by protection of any kind. It will not lead to any mafia players being revealed if the target is protected or the target has the ability to randomly reveal a mafia player during a normal kill. This kill isn't associated with any single mafia member, so as long as one member remains alive, the instakill can be used if it hasn't already been used. Cannot be used if there are less than 5 players left in the game.

    The Emperor has the ability to act in the open without anyone knowing he is really a Sith Master. As such, he will always turn up innocent during investigations and will never be randomly revealed.

    Darth Vader - "He will join us or die". Vader is obsessed with finding his son, Luke Skywalker, and converting him to the Dark Side. Each night he can, but doesn't have to, select a player to recruit. If the player is not Luke, nothing happens, no deaths and no identities revealed. If the player Vader recruits is Luke, there is a 50% chance Luke joins the Imperial Mafia, and a 50% chance Luke is killed.

    Stormtroopers make up the rest of the mafia and have no special powers. Exact numbers are unknown.

    Rebel Innocents

    Yoda - Judge him by size, do not, for his ally is the Force. Through the Force, things he will see, allowing him to investigate players. Investigations will return results of Innocent or Evil. The Emperor always shows up as innocent.

    Obi-Wan Kenobi - If he is struck down and killed in any fashion, he shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine. Upon his death, he can no longer interfere by voting, but he can still offer his own advice by continuing in the game discussion like normal. He can't cast a vote, and can't be a target of other votes, protections, or hits since he is already dead. If all the innocents are killed, he vanishes.

    Luke Skywalker - The Force is with him. He cannot die from a lynching, a mafia regular hit, or a Boba Fett hit during the first 2 days and nights. Would still die from the Death Star kill. Would still be affected by what is described in Darth Vader's recruitment of him.

    Princess Leia - The Force is with her. She cannot die from a lynching, a mafia regular hit, or a Boba Fett hit during the first 2 days and nights. Would still die from the Death Star kill.

    Han Solo - he can smuggle 1 player each night to safety, protecting the player from being killed. Can't smuggle the same person 2 nights in a row. Can self smuggle, even though he never thought he'd be smuggling himself. He cannot protect when there are less than 5 players remaining. Death Star kill can't be stopped by his protection.

    Chewbacca - It's not wise to upset a Wookie. He will protect a player each night, and would give his life to do so. If the protected player is targeted by the mafia or Boba Fett, Chewie dies in their place and the identity of the target remains unknown. However, before he dies, the upset Wookie will take one of his killers with him. If the mafia made the kill, a random mafia member other than the Emperor will also die. Boba Fett dies if he is the only killer. If both the mafia and Boba Fett were trying to make the kill, Boba Fett or a random mafia member will die. If the Emperor is the only mafia member left, Chewie will not be able to kill him. Chewie cannot self protect. He can't protect the same person two nights in a row. He cannot protect when there are less than 5 players remaining. Death Star kill can't be stopped by his protection, so Chewie would not end up sacrificing himself in this case.. If Chewie is protected by Han Solo, Chewie still sacrifices himself and dies if who he is protecting is a target of a hit.

    Lando Calrissian - a scoundrel, he can't be trusted, but he's got no love for the Empire. He just made a deal that he thought would keep him safe from the Empire forever. His part of the deal is that his daily vote will not count in the final vote tally. Instead, his vote will always secretly count against Han Solo as long as both characters are alive. If the Imperial Mafia alters the deal and kills Lando, he will die, but he has his own backup plan - a random member of the mafia, except for the Emperor, will be revealed. If the Emperor is the only mafia member left, Lando will not be able to reveal him. If he is lynched or killed by Boba Fett, Lando will reveal no identities. If Han Solo dies, Lando's vote will count as a normal vote going forward. (Even though I described this as being a "deal", Lando doesn't know who the mafia is and the mafia doesn't know who he is)

    Vigilante

    Boba Fett - bounty hunter. He works for himself. He can make a kill each night. He will be paid the full bounty if he is the last player standing.

    Remaining players are regular innocents. Everyone should receive a PM Sunday evening after 8.

    May the Force be with you.

    Rules:

    - Days: 9 Am - 9 PM (nights opposite) (the 9 AM start time is the normal time, but the day and voting can begin as soon as I post the overnight results. "They" don't let me play on the internet at work so depending on my schedule, the overnight results may come earlier than 9. Also keep in mind I won't have access to answer questions or post any kind of update during the day until late afternoon).
    -
    Friday night from 9pm to Sunday morning at 9 am is one night period.
    - If you don't vote 2 consectutive days or average 3 posts/day you get the clap and you die.
    - No editing of posts
    - Votes must be in bold or they don't count.
    - Earlier votes must be rescinded to avoid confusion on which one to count. If not rescinded, the earlier vote will stand.
    +2 minute leeway on votes (example: I will count a vote up until 9:02 PM on CF time).
    - Only mafia can PM amongst themselves.
    - I will add/change rules if we run into a problem with something.

    1,000,000 credits split to the winning team.

    Yeah I was going to try to pharaphrase an answer from a Yoda quote, but I'm too tired for that right now.

    Mafia is not an exbox360 game... (or certainly not exculsively)

    It's a game played with 20-30 people, usually in person but in this case on the forum.

    The basic game play is you have a group of people that are mafia, and group that is innocents. The innocents try to find out who is mafia and try to eliminate them before the mafia kill them all off.

    During the day there is discussion in the game thread, and people vote for who they think is mafia. At the end of the day one person is eliminated.

    Then at Night the Mafia kill an innocent.

    There are specials for the innocents that try to help, like a detective who can investigate one person each night, and a doctor that can try to block the mafia's kill

    I'll find you a game thread with basic rules...




    As for this game, it's being set to a Star Wars theme, so game play is essentially the same, just different names for the characters

    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    A Basic explination of Mafia game play on CF can be found here:

    http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/...up-thread.html



    Current game play will have some different rules, but the basic idea is the same
