Default If Anyone Wants to Try Chaos Management...

I've decided to release the full record of proposals from the first Calvinball Mafia. It might or might not be better to forbid repeating past proposals in future attempts. In any case this is how I kept the game balanced.

There's no telling if I'd personally be around if someone started a reboot, but fond memories motivated and made this project worth it. It's funny to recall that I had very specific relationships with people here.

Without further ado:

Night 0

Condition: Hilda is lazy and will only let you make one kill per complete day/night cycle. Furthermore, when you use Hilda she will let out a battle cry that gives you away as the killer.

Granted.

The lie detector will buzz as soon as I read a post by Phantom that contains a lie, with no explanation as to why this happened.

Conditions: You may send one message per phase of the game to any number of recipients (in any combination of CC/BCC), and you may receive one response per recipient, so long as you 1) copy me on the PM, and 2) tell the recipient(s) to copy me and that they may respond once. You may save your messages for later if you don't use them in a given phase. Anonymous messages can be mediated through yours truly.

At the end of the day phase, before a lynch is carried out, everyone must vote for their three (different) favourite puppy pictures. (Players may vote for at most one of their own puppy pictures.) The players who posted the three puppy pictures with the most votes win the game immediately (although gameplay still continues). If two (or three) of a player's puppy pictures are voted as the best, that player wins twice (or three times). I do not know what this means.

It is up to the lovely GM to decide whether or not the townspeople will be informed of why they are posting photos of puppies. Perhaps the townspeople will not be aware that incorrectly following puppy protocol will get them modkilled until one is killed as an example. Perhaps the townspeople will not know there will be voting until the poll goes up. Perhaps the townspeople will not know what happens to the people who win the vote until the poll ends. WHO KNOWS?!

"Potatoes.

OR
-Give me a username with a 100% instead of 87.5% chance of being innocent, but don't heal anyone or do anything else.
Granted.

Granted, but immunity to lynches and modkills is now non-negotiable, and each vote to lynch you will now count for 1 + 1/3 votes.

I've been trying to make these reasonably vague, for better or for worse?
Granted. Starting tonight, you will see a number of proposals from the same night balanced on factors such as how many proposals were made, and the actual content of the proposals. Proposals will not be associated with the names of the people who made them.

Okay, sure.

Granted, except it might not always be exactly every third word if there is information that needs to be covered up.

Granted.

Additionally -- and this one is admittedly more for the sake of messing with people -- any players who make further proposals involving me will find themselves struck by a V-Create from Rayquaza and will subsequently drop dead.

This good to go? I only vaguely recall the actual rules of the game right now, so.
Yup, you are good to go.

In exchange, I may not propose to change another player's alignment for the rest of the game.

(I declare that my proposal should be accepted because given that innocents can be absolutely any role they want to be at any time, mafia should be allowed to make much more powerful proposals than the innocents in order to make up for this grave imbalance! :D)
Granted, and I'm not even going to say you definitely can't convert again this game. I'll give DA the link to the quicktopic.

Also, in order to bar Eifie from any temptation of simply getting the town to lynch DarkAura, Eifie may not speak in the discussion today. Lastly, in an effort to balance the fact that the mafia will subsequently be made up of two "confirmed" innocents, Eifie may not submit a proposal tomorrow night.

As the leader of this faction I can knee one person a night. Kneeing means they cannot post the following day, essentially silenced. The person must be described as 'doubled over in pain'. If they do talk, they die by being turned into babies. Since there is no known cure, they are essentially dead. This, however, means I cannot bodyguard, because bodyguarding equipment is heavy, y'know?

Uh... what else... If any person makes a The Office reference they are automatically added to the Office.

If I am inspected, the inspection turns up 'MGS'.

This proposal cannot be revealed in any way, shape or form unless I mention it. If someone tries to bypass this, send them "Scott sends his regards" linked to this video.

You give me the win condition.
Granted. The Office team gets 1 victory for every time an office member is successfully lynched. When lynched, Office members come back to life the following morning.

Once another player joins the Office, office members will be able to communicate via a quicktopic thread that I will create.

I'm just gonna straight up veto this one. Phantom got frustrated and said she didn't want to play, plus, three mafia would make the game over. Tonight, no reviving, no killing, and no converting, because we need to have at least one more day.

(and the secret initiaton handshake is a firm shake with the words, "How do you do?", because ripping off SpongeBob is the way to go!)
Granted.

Do not give out any dead mafia members' names. For example, you could include "Warning: You are at THREAT LEVEL MIDNIGHT. Additionally, you have received the following Mysterious Names: Yoshi, Mario, Luigi." with nothing more, if for example Luigi and Bowser are mafia and Yoshi and Mario are town, even if Luigi was originally town or Mario was originally mafia and they had their alignments changed over the duration of the game.
Only edit I'm going to make is that there will be 2 usernames sent out instead of 3. Granted.

Proposal: Every time someone types the word "mafia" a system message goes "bleep". If there are multiple occurrences of the word "mafia" when you go to post a system message, there will be one bleep for every occurrence.

Additionally, this proposal is exempted from any attempts to reveal proposals to the general town. In other words, it is not to be shown to anyone.
Granted.

Keep all Office alignments in practice, however, and keep the ability to revive when lynched. If this proposal is given to anyone, have it read that The Office has been completely disbanded and destroyed.
Eifie: I propose that Mai is to be given one "build-their-own" announcement, to be written and posted at will with no indication of its player-based origin (i.e., that it is posted as any other announcement made by the GM). In addition, I propose that this proposal stays completely secret: that it will not be posted in a thread, PMed to anyone, or given out, even if any other proposal calls for such.
DarkAura: I propose that Mai is to be converted to mafia alignment; in exchange, both Eifie and I die.
Granted.

Also, if anyone attempts to recruit another living player who is not in their faction into their faction with their proposal tonight, prevent all effects of that recruiting proposal. Do this working in conjunction with Mai and/or I liek Squirtles to reduce the conditions, if any, that are to be imposed on this proposal.
Partially granted.
