I need someone who can invest a relatively minor amount of time to help me with my upcoming concept game; I'm posting this here because a mafia player would be optimal.

The only prerequisite is that you have to be awesome at maths.

No but in all seriousness, I'm a very creative writer, if you needed help in that aspect id volunteer, but i am not good at math so my apologies sir.

I'm pretty terrible at anything outside rudimentary maths (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) and I need help working out a quick way to run some projections and adjusting my chance elements to balance the game.

You're good at maths? I can see that you're Asian (if you're that boy in your profile photo) and that's definitely a start. (lol)

Well, it might even be better if I have a few people helping me really. It shouldn't take too long; I'll do all the work, I just need some advice really.

What kind of math? I'm up to about halfway through pre-calc and a year ahead.

Add me to the pm: I currently am doing my final maths test before maths at uni.

I can say what's needed and the equations and the like, but I'm too lazy to get the hard graft done myself (can't access excel to do my maths for me :P)

From what I infer, the math needed here involves probabilities. For example, if all the players act a certain way given certain abilities, what are the odds of certain events happening (for example, one side winning versus another).

For example, you can take a Mafia game of vanillas and goons and, based on random lynching and random night killing, determine the probability of Town winning versus Mafia winning.

While such answers can be derived via pure mathematics (e.g. figuring out the equations and plugging in the variables), I've always preferred a more "hands-on" approach of constructing an actual simulation (Monte Carlo simulation) and running a million or so iterations and seeing what the results are.

It's more in line with my skill set, so it's easier for me to do than to figure out the maths involve in discovering the necessary equations. I mean, even the simplest form of Mafia I just described involves what I would consider complicated mathematics: http://en.wikipedia.org...(party_game)#Game_experience_and_strategy

So, TV, if you're interested, shoot me the set-up of your game and I'll see what I can do.
