    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

Stealing-and-Giving Mafia


Always a sucker for bubble tea
You live in a town in which everyone is a thief, including you.

Basically, in this mafia game, you can steal from everyone each night in addition to any night action you may have. Every role has two designated objects you can steal.

If the object you use for your night action is stolen, you can't have your night action. But if you get an object that you can use to kill or protect, you can use that.

In addition to stealing, you can give an item you have to the person you choose to steal from.

Stealing and giving rules:
- You can only steal once a night.
- You have a 50% chance of stealing, unless you are the plucky child.
- The item you steal is random.
- Whether or not you steal from a person, the person will always get a PM saying they got targeted.
- Of course, you will know when you are stolen from.
- If more people "successfully" steal from you than the number of items you have, whoever gets the item will be determined by a random number generator. For example, if the doctor only has two items, three people try to steal from him, and all three people's stealings work with the number generator, then only two will get items, determined by the number generator.

- You can only give items to the person you decide to steal from.
- If you give an item to someone, it can't be stolen from you that night.

Mafia don: The leader of the mafia. He can communicate with the rest of the mafia at night, except for the terrorist, who he doesn't know. Each night, he must send in a PM saying who to kill. However, without a knife or gun, he cannot kill.
Initial inventory: Knife, gun

Mafia poisoner/doctor: The right-hand man of the mafia. He can use his poison medicine to poison someone, and that target will die the next night. Or he can use his medicine to heal someone. If the mafia don dies, the mafia poisoner/doctor will be the one sending in the kill.
Initial inventory: Poison medicine, medicine

Terrorist: A citizen who has chosen to side with the mafia, but does not know who they are, and they do not know who he is. If he has a bomb, he can choose to kill himself and someone else during the day phase. If he loses the bomb, though, he can't do so.
Initial inventory: Bomb, briefcase

Inspector: A citizen who has the power to investigate someone and learn if they are on the pro-town or pro-mafia side. He needs a magnifying glass or a camera to inspect someone.
Initial inventory: Magnifying glass, camera

Suicidal townie: A nervous citizen who hates death. If anybody dies during the day, then he is forced to kill himself. However, if he has no weapons, whether or not he gives them all away or they are stolen, he cannot kill himself. After the first death happens, though, he is forced to kill himself when he gets his hands on a weapon.
Initial inventory: Poison medicine, gun

Recruiting mason: A citizen who has started a group intended for those who hate the mafia, called the mason. Each night, he can recruit someone into the group, regardless of what items he has. In addition to stealing and giving, he also automatically gives a robe to any mason member he recruits, and if any of the members' robes are stolen, he gives them yet another. If he tries to recruit a mafia member, he dies.

Initial inventory: Kitchen knife, pen and paper

Tracker: A citizen who is determined to find out who is the mafia. Each night, as long as he has a magnifying glass or camera, he can track someone and find out whose house they went to. If he doesn't have a magnifying glass or a camera, he can't do anything except steal or give.

Commuter: A businessman who has been using his faraway workplace as an excuse to get away from the town.

Order of actions
1. When Night 0 starts, I will PM you your role and night action.
2. From each night onwards, send in who you want to steal from, what you want to give that person, and your night action. All are optional.
3. The stealing/giving action happens.
4. The night action happens. That is, if you are a vigilante and your knife was stolen before this, then you can't kill anyone. As another example, if your knife was stolen AND you were given a gun by the suicidal townie or something, then you can still kill.
5. You will get a PM with your final inventory by the time day is about to begin.
6. Day phase starts, with any notes left during the night revealed to the townies.

14 roles, with 2 mafia, 1 terrorist, and 11 awesome innocents. I'm only going to allow up to 14.

Is anyone else interested in joining? If not, then with 13 players I'll remove the Chef role and the kitchen knife.
