Themefia End (It's a Nice Day for a Red Wedding)
[Image: Themefia.png]

It was one fine Thursday when, on the CPI forums, a bunch of errant themes gathered. See, though the community was pretty good, with great players, able moderators, and an incredible and very handsome administrator, mafia activity had been flagging. The themes knew that a new game would help revitalize the subforum. Problem was, choosing the theme. All the themes gathered were unused thus far and wanted very desperately to be the one chosen for the new game. Thus, it was agreed that they would all diplomatically decide who would get the job, through democratic voting and all that boring stuff.

It gets more interesting though, because a small group of the themes didn't want any part of that nonsense. They were willing to make sure that they'd get the spot - over the metaphorical bodies of the other themes, if necessary. Of course, standing alone would do no good, so these ne'er-do-wells teamed up and resolved to just sort it amongst themselves once everyone else was out of the way.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Alright so this will be a medium flavour, straightforward setup game. No clusterfucky stuff, no weird roles, etc.

For fun though, feel free to send in a theme or two that a mafia game could have. They can be shows, games, music, or even just general concepts. The theme can't be something that you've seen run here or on an affiliated forum, so for example Cults or 1920s Big Band would be acceptable suggestions, while Adventure Time or Insomniac would not. Who knows, you might just kill (or be killed) by one of your suggestions if you do!

Rules:
Shamlessly stolen from speedchuck who stole it from others:
1. Massclaims (Large numbers of players revealing their roles at once) is highly unadvised. Such claims will likely not help, and it tends to suck all the fun out of the game. Really bad instances of this will result in horrific punishments which can instill fear into even the most stalwart of hearts. Don't massclaim, okay.
2. Flavorclaiming will not save you and is also discouraged because meta.
3. Days will be 120 hours long (5 days) and nights will be 48 hours long (2 days). Extensions may be granted in specific scenarios. Even if the day has not been announced over, DO NOT POST PAST DEADLINE. The state at deadline is the state at which the day ends.
4. When casting lynch votes, please bold or color your votes. Heck, do both.
5. All player-to-moderator communication should be done through provided Quicktopics, which are controlled discussions.
6. Don't copy/paste from Quicktopics, this threatens game stability and may be treated as cheating action. Which is punishable in bad ways.
7. And don't share quicktopics with others.
8. And keep game-sensitive details inside the game, please.
9. While you're at it, refrain from editing or deleting posts.
10. Death will grant you one spoilered "bluh" post, which may not contain game-relevant information.
11. Do not post during the night phase.
12. Day Activation / "Karkat" Rule 1: In the event a day activation is claimed (someone using a role power in the day), assume day has ended and it is nighttime. Game will resume once I have intervened and resolved the action.
13. Day Activation / "Karkat" Rule 2: Faking day activations is strictly forbidden and punishable by moderator kill.
14. Refrain from ciphering or concealing posts. Also avoid whiting out text, that's really annoying.
15. Maintain a reasonable level of activity (minimum of one post per day). Failing to post (or have a reason for not doing so) opens you up to Replacement Kills after a game day.
16. Flavor WILL NOT SAVE YOU. The mafia has access to the town wincon.
17. Please, this is a game. Take it easy, play to have fun, but play to win! We all want to have fun. Remember that.
18. Guarantees: This setup involves no cults, jesters, obliterators, quicktopic spying, mod bastardry, alignment-changing, or game-ending third party win conditions.

RE: Themefia (10/10)
DAY ONE

And so, having learned of the Mafia Themes Mafia's goal - of taking control of the ever important decision as to which mafia theme gets to be the theme of the next mafia - the group decides that they need to gather around and figure out a way of stopping them.

The most obvious solution lay in the very game they were debating about - they could just treat it like a regular game of mafia!

Softlynch is 4, hardlynch is 6.

Day ends at 11:59 pm EST on Sunday, June 5.

RE: Themefia (10/10)
Typically obliterators should not be a thing ever unless it is a werewolf style game.

Factoid Corner:
Considering it is a 10 person game I'm going to guess we have a considerable number of vanillas, some sort of protective role and some sort of investigative role at a minimum.
1/4 rule of 10 suggests this setup is about 2 or 3 scum, likely the former, and we probably have about 2 guaranteed, likely 3 mislynches available to us.

RE: Themefia (10/10)
Fine, it's obviously irrelevant because either he's being sincere and didn't spot it or he's staging the whole thing in which case, uh, it's staged and therefore it's basically impossible to deduce anything useful from it. It doesn't even help us tell whether the whole obliterator thing is staged on his end because it's the correct and more or less only reaction to your wild speculation being pointed out as against the setup guarantees.

Like, that comment says nothing new that the original comment about obliterators didn't and any inquiry about the post is worthless now that you've made me point this out.

I may be mildly peeved about this >_>

Re. DC vote: Eh, i don't really see what he's supposed to fearmonger about, since our themes aren't even relevant to anything. Even if our roles were directly related to our themes you could have a dozen different themes for each role anyways. If there were a theme-obliterator they would have the shittiest role in the game.
