Default Re: Pokkén Tournament Choice Mafia - Game Thread

Perhaps losing their wits, perhaps making difficult decisions, the trainers begin speaking of more plans to finally settle the evil rotting within their group. They make plans for dying and killing as they see necessary. But they never seem to reach an agreement as to whose plan would be the right one, and in the bleak heat of the moment, some of them begin to shift their thoughts towards murdering over dissent.

By the time it all comes to a head, a Weavile's carcass is plunged through both of a Garchomp's claws, sporting a crooked smirk even as death approached; and as if to synergically match the Pokémon, Kratos Aurion's hands brutally attempt to choke the life out of Zero Moment, his last drifting sight being a sudden flash of horror in his attacker's eyes.

"Meheheh... Worth it..."

As the last conspirator's Battle AR flashed out, his executioner sprinted away, fraught to the core with doubt and regret. Along with his partner Pokémon, he was lost to the woods that day, his fate left unknown and uncertain to all and sundry forever, but naturally, it was unlikely to have ended in a joy ride.

Somehow, the few remaining trainers could feel a spark of Synergy coming on as the deed happened -- as if the lethal struggle had started to awaken Gaia Power once again. With a knowing nod, they all rushed back to Ferrum proper.

The League as a whole breathed a sigh of relief as Sceptile, Pikachu Libre, Machamp, and a healed Mewtwo exchanged blows in the timeless Ferrum Stadium, each sporting strike steadily returning glorious glow to the Synergy Stone.

-----

Zero Moment, Weavile's trainer, is dead. He was mafia.

Kratos Aurion, Garchomp's trainer, is dead. He was innocent.

Town wins!


Give me a few to get the endgame goodies rolling, as this was, obviously, not exactly a precisely scheduled finish.

Move List
-Appeal(Free Move): Targets a player other than self and gives them a Support Pokémon, picked by this power's user. The same Support Pokémon can't be given out twice until all others have been given out at least once.

Using a Support Pokémon does not increase the user's Synergy, but a player targeted by a Support Pokémon still gains Synergy. All Support Pokémon are used by targeting a different, living player, although some will not affect the targeted player.

-Distraction Kick(Cost-1 Synergy Point): Targets a player. During this Night Phase, any information that player is attempting to gather will be replaced by a message specified by this power's user (eg, if the message is "Mafia", then a role discovering alignments will discover "Mafia" instead, and a role discovering information about night actions will discover "Mafia" instead of the relevant information, and so on forth).
-Heat Wave(Cost-4 Synergy Points): Targets a player. Choose between alignment and night action. During this Night Phase, the targeted player will return the chosen information incorrectly to information-gathering roles, giving the most alarming results possible instead.
-Gatling Distraction Kicks(Burst Power/Cost-9 Synergy Points): When using this power, provide, for at least one of the following categories and as many of them as you'd like, a piece of information to be delivered to the inforoles that might seek it: an alignment; up to 5 players as having targeted someone; up to 5 players as being targeted by someone; a yes-or-no answer; and a Day message. Your false information needs not correspond to any actual existing possibility in the game (so you can, for example, fill in the yes-or-no answer with "mayonnaise") -- the categories are only relevant in the sense of what role is seeking them (so, in the example given, an Oracle's question would be answered as "mayonnaise", even though it would normally be answered as "yes" or "no"; however, a Cop's alignment check would not return "mayonnaise" as well unless you were to also fill that into the alignment field).

Day Seven
=DAY SEVEN=

Zero Moment(Weavile) used Taunt~Night Slash on Kratos Aurion(Garchomp). Zero Moment(Weavile) and Kratos Aurion(Garchomp) are dead.



Overall, I guess I set the cost of moves a little too high (and/or was too stingy with the means of acquiring Synergy), which rendered a significant part of everyone's setlist moot, even beyond just making it difficult to use Burst Powers. Still, I'd like to give this mechanic a few more spins in the future -- on the one hand I worry a little about it running too much on star power (see also: Butterfree getting 5 Synergy Points N0), but on the other hand, and almost by the same token, it seems that a fairly reliable way to draw Synergy was to simply leave a mark on the Day discussion, so if the mechanic really can work as a way to organically convince people to be participative, I may have struck gold.

As for future games -- as usual I'll be giving it some cooldown before I churn out another game (and besides, not to hype or anything, but I hear somebody around here's been toying with a setup), but I do already have a bunch of ideas swimming around in my head that I could definitely go for in the semi-near future. Some projects include PMD choice mafia, a Capitalist Democracy Mafia sequel, and a setup which I'm referring to as "third-party party" where everyone has a personal win condition along with a factional win condition (and in any case I'd run such a setup explicitly that way and not as a twist so I can just put that thought out there). If any of those appeal to you, well, a little feedback might just be what gets one of them on the fast track over the others.

I hope most if not all of you enjoyed the game! Also, while we're all at it: if anybody's looking to get wrecked on Pokkén Tournament, I'm all set.

This was a lot of fun! I agree with you about the Synergy balance — it's a very intriguing mechanic that seems very promising in terms of organically encouraging participation, but the costs in this particular game seemed a bit too high. I'm very excited to see whether you continue with this kind of mechanic, and what new things you bring to the table with it, in the future!

All in all, good game to play, but A+ game to spectate once I wasn't worrying any more about getting enough Synergy to use my burst power, haha.

oh dangit it I stopped ILS from killing ZM :( This would've been the first time I made it to the end of a game without dying in a good while, too. Ah, well. Maybe now, since I've finally died as what amounts to Yet Another Goddamn Doctor, I'll actually get to survive as some other role for once?

This was fun! A bit odd to have the game continue after all the nightkilling mafiosi were dead, but the communicating scum group was small, and it managed to run pretty close even with that. The synergy costs could do with some tweaking (and maybe some adjustments to how synergy and supports interact, to better incentivize trying one out instead of a normal action?), but that's how it goes with any new mechanic. It's definitely true that it did give us something to talk about when we were otherwise stymied!

Man, this is giving me a bit of an itch to try running Evolution Mafia again... but probably not for a while, heh. I'm exhausted enough from other things that I don't need to spend all that extra time counting a million friggin' posts a day again. :P

I died pretty early, but even watching this game was fun.

Out of curiosity, who would be interested in a U.S. political figures mafia? It seems to complement the capitalism mafia rather well.

OMG KRATOS NO



ZM YOU MONSTER WE WERE SO CLOSE. WE COULD HAVE LIVED TOGETHER FOREVER IN OUR BATTLE PARADISE BUT NO. NO, YOU HAD TO GO AND KILL MY LOVER ON THE LAST. GODDAMNED. DAY. DDDDD:<<<


(also this post is a good six hours late, for which I blame Butterfree, it is all Butterfree's fault)

Good game! The day phase didn't really heat up much, unfortunately, but the synergy mechanics were definitely interesting. Thanks for hosting, MF, and I look forward to trying some of those future games! And thanks to Kratos for being my leech seed bro for the whole game (or ALMOST the entire game, ZM), definitely made things more fun.

Hehehe! I have terrible, terrible things in store for you. There'll be tentacled horrors, and swarms of locusts, and spicy meatballs! Hell, there'll be foods I ain't even tried myself! Now, it looks like there are a few others waiting in line to run mafia games... but make no mistake: they're just delaying the inevitable! The time of bad eats and badder murder is nigh!
