Introduction Round 3:

Misinformation and Information:

In 7.2 you were introduced to a variety of roles that will commonly appear in the game of Mafia. A majority of these roles provide valuable information that help figure out who the Mafia is. In fact, you were told to trust no one but yourself, and that results could be taken at face value.

No longer. In this game, the motto is: Trust no one, not even yourself.

Roles like Cops and Watchers can take center stage, as they have an unsurpassed ability to confirm Town and Mafia alike. As such, it is not uncommon to introduce opposing roles and flavors that interfere with these results.

Roles can commonly be attached to modifiers, also known as "flavors" which alter how that ability works. The player may or may not know that their role is flavored. Common flavors that are known to players include:

ODD/EVEN - The player's role only works on ODD or EVEN night phases.
NON-CONSECUTIVE - The player can use their role on any night they want, but not two nights in a row.
X-SHOT - The player can use their role a limited number of times.
% ROLES - Not commonly seen here, but some roles only have a percentage chance (usually 50/50) of working.

However, some flavors are secret modifiers to a person's roles. These are commonly applied to Cops in the following manner:

Sane - Gets accurate results
Insane - Gets opposite results
Naive - Always gets "Innocent"
Paranoid - Always gets "Guilty"
Random - Gets random results

Though these flavors appear mostly on Cop roles, any role may be "flavored." Occasionally a role will be "Naive". Naive roles do nothing, but the user of that role doesn't know that. As stated, these kinds flavors are secret and known only to the mods until the end of the game.

There are other forms of information manipulation, but you'll have to discover these on your own.

Third Parties and Conversions

So far you've only been playing with two parties: The Town and Mafia. This game we will introduce Third Parties. These parties are in it for themselves. They are anti-town AND anti-mafia. Third Parties are also the Parties of extreme. Some are Parties by themselves, and can't rely on help from anyone else and hardly ever win unless the game is specifically balanced to support them. Others are very powerful and can exploit whatever situation the game is to leverage a win as they really don't care who, Town or Mafia, has an advantage.

Also, regardless of the validity of your results, you could at least count that, whatever their alignment was, that's what they were. Guilty or Innocent. Conversions change all that. While there are conversions that maintain a player's alignment, many change a Player's alignment. Conversions are particularly insidious as you can't rely on a player's past behavior as an indication of their current affiliation.

This game will be chaotic. I'm not sure who it favors, if it favors anyone. As the last game, enjoy and have fun. Many of the roles here you probably won't ever see again in a DDO game, but you will probably come across some of the mechanics, so pay attention!

Set-up:

This game will be a Closed Setup. No roles will be known in advance. Good luck!

Mod Note: Though this is a closed set-up, I will note that roles are not necessarily unique, which is another common element of flavored roles. Some duplicate roles complement each other, while others are red-herrings designed to make the town think.

6.Fubar
7.Airmax
8.Thett
9.Vmpire
10.Xerge
11.Royal

With 13 Players, it takes 7 votes to lynch.

Okay, this is gonna suck hard.

Are you also a Miller?

No no. Wasn't CCing you.
I was just marveling at the flavoring, as I tend to rely on results a bit to make my decisions.

That's also pretty hasty. Why do you say so? She did claim Miller.

He has refused to claim.

Note for the n00bs: When someone refuses to claim, put even more pressure on him or her.

You generally do the same thing though. Which is why I'm looking at your insta-claim with zero pressure pretty odd.

Why is everyone always suspcious of me? If I do not claim, everyone claims that I am scum. If I claim, everyone claims that I am scum. I am always scum, right?

Millers should claim on their first posts instead of after they are investigated.
