[GAME OVER] Open Janitorial Mafia

Recommended Posts

Open Janitorial Mafia is an open setup, which means the possible roles are known from the start of the game. The setup itself is called Janitorial thanks to the pivotal mafia role, the Janitor. The setup only has one doctor and one cop, plus a few other basic roles that haven't been seen on this forum before. Scumhunting is a must, but it shouldn't be as "in the dark" as a true basics game.

JANITORIAL MAFIA ROLES

  • Villager (3)
    • The most basic of town roles, the villager has no actions except their vote.
  • Doctor (1)
    • The doctor is a town power role with the ability to protect one player each night, including themselves if desired.
  • Sane Cop (1)
    • The cop is a town power role with the ability to investigate a player each night and discover their alignment.
  • Miller (1)
    • The miller is a basic town role that is essentially a villager, but they will appear as mafia on cop reports and flip vanilla mafia on death.
  • Oracle (1)
    • The oracle is a town power role with the ability to target a player each night to be mod-revealed if the oracle dies. The oracle will only reveal their previous night target. The ability does not stack.
  • Vanilla Mafia (1)
    • The mirror role of the town villager, the vanilla mafia has no actions except a nightkill and a vote during the day.
  • Janitor (1)
    • The janitor is a mafia power role with a one-time ability to hide the role of the nightkill. The killed player will not be revealed for the duration of the game.
  • Lawyer (1)
    • The lawyer is a mafia power role with the night ability to make their target mafia teammate appear innocent on cop reports.

This game setup requires 10 players to play. If you are brand new or have only a few games of mafia under your belt, this is a great entry point!

The game will start within 72 hours of the minimum player count being met. Official date and time will be announced within 24 hours of the minimum player count being met.

*This game is estimated to last up to Night 5, which equates to 15 days (48 hour days and 24 hour nights). Depending on how the game plays out, the timeframe might be longer or shorter.

I'll sign up.  The full schedule isn't out yet, but doesn't look like I'll be playing in the championships before the end of the month.

30% Mafia, and three ways for Town to get fooled off of reports and one of the death flips can be deceptive on it's own. Yikes.

It's going to be super hard to be detective when there are so many things that can be wrong.

Still, I'm up for the challenge.

It's a common competitive setup at epicmafia.com (don't play there it's just tumblr weebs and sjws). They have strategies posted on the setup page. Of course, the setup is irc chat based instead of forum, so there's going to be a difference in how it plays out.

Yep, I believe I'll go ahead and sign up, having open roles should make this more of a straightforward game.

I believe it looks unbalanced at first glance because we're used to fakeclaims as mafia, but not counterclaims. In this setup mafia needs to be able to counterclaim and win during the day. Meaning Shade will have a migraine. ;)

Doubtful, the possibilities are far more constrained when you don't have to take fake claims into account.

After what we just witnessed with you having to find the real doctor in Category 5 and TheIrishMan, God help the players. :p

Right, that's true. Hard for mafia to fake claim when all roles are known in advance.

Mafia must convince the town why the fake news is real news. It's essentially most Americans vs. CNN.

Actually, I'd like to sign for this, if it's ok. I'd like a little more experience before running another game.

If you don't mind a rusty mafia player, I'd love to join in.

Rusty? You’re not fresh meat? I don’t recall your name in any games I’ve ever played or hosted. Welcome!

Rusty as in I haven't visited these forums and played mafia (epicmafia.com) for a long long time (think close to 10 years D:).

Have you played with us over at BHP? I remember you (or player with your name) playing my games (e.g. APB Mafia/RPG)

It'd have to be an APB mafia game.

I actually have a spreadsheet I maintained back then of player records and Inferno's name is on it. He played in three games, winning none. (Allie29, Chaos_Knight and Nodlied won the most games back then, for the record)

Muffia: Lynch All Muffins (Town Loss)
Red Alert: A Mafia Rising (Mafia Loss)
Red Alert: A Mafia Beyond (Town Loss)

All games hosted by Glaed. They were the first three games I have on record.

He also played in my APB RPG, and a couple of others iirc.
