[November 5 - Ending] Death Is Not The End Mafia

Recommended Posts

Death Is Not The End Mafia


A strange family with roots stretching far back to the days of old, the Fernández family has always had a penchant for connecting to the dead. Generation upon generation, members of the Fernández family have been recognized of having a stronger spiritual connection with those who have passed. They are no stranger to the voices that can be heard in the middle of the night nor the strange shadows appearing in abandoned hospitals and schools. 


With the coming of the Day of the Dead, the Fernández family have begun preparing for the annual celebration in honor of the dead, as well as, the channeling rites to give opportunities for people to connect with their loved ones. However, strange and malevolent forces have gathered to destroy the sanctity of the celebration. With the mysterious deaths of Fernández family members, they must be ready to stop these forces before it's too late, lest the Day of the Dead be ruined and their family legacy engulfed in flames.

 

An Overview of Mafia

 

Mafia is a social deduction game which requires analyzing, cooperation, and looking through lies. There are two main factions in a mafia game: the Uninformed Majority [Town], who have to find others of their kind while hunting for the mafia, and the Informed Minority [Mafia], who have a private chat and plan there on how they should trick the town and whom they should kill. There may also be Third Party or Independent roles, which have different agendas and win conditions.


At the beginning of the game, players receive a PM or a DM (in some cases) with their role and alignment.

There are two major phases in a Mafia game:

(1) The Day Phase  Typically lasting 48 hours, players use this opportunity to discuss about several things, which may include the outcome of the previous phases, behavior of players, and flow of the game; the ultimate goal in the day phase is for the Town players to find the Mafia slowly while Mafia players have to blend in carefully. Before the day ends, players must vote for a player whom they want to be eliminated on grounds of suspicion and the player receiving the most votes will be eliminated.

(2) The Night Phase  Typically lasting 24 hours, the thread is considered locked at this point and players may not comment at all. Instead, players with night actions, special abilities related to their role, may use these to aid their faction. The Mafia also discusses in the private chat on whom to dispose of.

The game continues until one of the major factions attains their win condition or unless it is no longer possible.

 

Factions

 

The Fernández family - The Fernández family members possess a strange connection to the dead. While some may have stronger senses and others have minimal to no level of spiritual ability, they are responsible for ensuring the Day of the Dead is taken care of. They are the UNINFORMED MAJORITY. They win when all members of the Malevolent are executed.


The Malevolent - They are a group of eccentric individuals and supernatural beings who have gathered to wreck the Day of the Dead celebration, as well as, ensure that the reputation of the Fernández family is tarnished. They are the INFORMED MINORITY. They win when they achieve parity or when the members of the Fernández family reach an equal or lesser number compared to theirs.

Third Parties - They are beings who have been involved with the Day of the Dead for as long as can be remembered. They bear no ill intent or good will to either factions. They have their own winning conditions.

 

Important Notes

 

(1) The game is a CLOSED SET-UP. Roles are not revealed prior to the game's start. All roles are taken up from EpicMafia and Mafia Universe with minimal to no revisions.


(2) The game is a NO ALIGNMENT AND ROLE REVEAL game. Upon death, the alignment and roles of dead players will not be revealed; however, their character name will be revealed (e.g Manuel Fernández) It is up to the players to ascertain who and what a certain player was.

Land of the Living


The Land of the Living is the realm of the people whose physical body and soul are intertwined together, and as such, are considered alive. Living beings thrive with their energy and joviality.

The Graveyard

The Graveyard is the place where living beings who pass away stay before they are cast away to the Underworld or the Land of the Dead. The spirits of once-living beings do not exist in physical form, but characters in the Graveyard can still, to some extent, influence the lives of the living.

The Underworld / The Land of the Dead

The Underworld is the realm where the spirits of the dead have been cast to after some time has passed on or certain forces have interacted with them. They cannot interfere in the affairs of both the living and the Graveyard, and can only wallow in their sorrows.

The Day of the Dead


The Day of the Dead is an annual celebration wherein the dead are acknowledged and remembered. It is a time wherein the dead have a stronger presence to the Land of the Living.

This event happens in this game when certain conditions are achieved and specific mechanics will be activated during this time.

 

The Day of the Dead will last for a number of phases.

 

Mechanics

 

* The game starts on Night 0. Day Phases will last 48 hours and Night Phases will last 24 hours.


* Majority is in effect starting Day 2. Day 2 onwards will be ended prematurely the moment a majority is reached.

* Votes are FINAL when LYLO is reached.

* No Lynching / Abstaining is not allowed.

* Mafia factional kills are mandatory. They are assigned to one of the members, meaning they can be tracked, watched, or roleblocked.

 

* Mafia members who have an active ability / action can perform the mafia factional kill at the same time. When this occurs, tracking, watching, and roleblocking abilities affect the primary ability; as such, the factional kill is unaffected in such cases.

 

* Third party players, who have the capacity to win in the middle of the game, continue playing even though they have already won. Their victory is not announced and game continues normally.

 
* Mafia may communicate at any time.

* Tied votes will result in a player being lynched at random from among the tied players.

 

* The role priority is as follows: all actions are bound to happen unless if another role prevents said action from happening and as such, being killed will still make the action go through.

 

* Dead players do not know each other's alignment and role.

* To show that you've read this, comment your answer to this question: "If Fernández was your last name, what would your first name be?"

 

Rules

 

(1) The Reborn Forum rules apply here.


(2) All Player Discussion must be kept in the thread; mandated special private chats may also be utilized. Other forms of contact outside of these such as Private Chats without the Host’s permission, IRL contact, and other methods are not allowed.

(4) Voting is done in the format: [Eliminate] Player Name or in similar formats. Changing of votes may be done in this format: [Unvote] Player Name. All votes must be placed in bold or they are not counted.

(5) Night Phase lasts for 24 hours. Players are not allowed to comment in the thread. Violation of this rule will result in warning (1st offence) and disqualification (2nd offence).

(6) Sharing of Role PMs – through screenshots, verbatim copying, or other forms – to other players is illegal. Consequences will be given to violators.

(7) If you are eliminated in any way, you may NOT have a final post, nor will you be allowed to react to in-game posts, unless if you will be given the permission or ability to do so.

(8) Actions – day or night – should be sent to me or L'Belle via PM (Forums) or DM (Discord).

October 28 - Night Zero

 

The ancestral home of the Fernández family was a particularly quiet and calm place to be in. Its halls and rooms were often uninhabited most of the year as the members of the family had been scattered in the pursuit of different interests. Among the family, only the Family Head and his wife stayed in the house to maintain its upkeep and tradition while the Main Line and Branch Family leaders only visited habitually in response to their obligations.

 

At this odd time of the year, however, the ancestral home felt less empty than before as family members who had come from both near and far entered the home. The young children of the families were running around the narrow halls despite being warned by the housemaids to stop playing around because they might break the expensive antique vases and figurines decorated in the corridors and rooms.

 

As more and more family members were gathered in the main room of the ancestral home, conversations began between some of the more acquainted family members. Mothers expressed genuine interest as they shared stories of their children while fathers and bachelors of the same age bracket compared their latest acquisitions and achievements. The ancestral home had not been filled with such a high level of energy, as only selected members of the family were required to assist in the preparation for the Day of the Dead in the past years.

 

The Day of the Dead celebration was more special for this year, as it would be held in commemoration of the 1000th year since the establishment of the Fernández clan by Jose and Valeria Fernández. As such, all members of the family were invited and greatly encouraged to be present for the Day of the Dead. The jovial interactions were interrupted by the sound of the gong being hit by Carlos Fernández, the Family Head. Although he was 95 years old, his strength and youthful features made him appear younger. 

 

He began to speak. “As the Fernández Family Head, I thank all of you for travelling to our ancestral home for the Day of the Dead. It has been heartwarming and gratifying to see all of you here again. In celebration of this gathering, a banquet of food and drinks will be served, as well as, entertainment and music to last this night long first night of this reunion.”


He took a wine glass from the table and raised it up to the air. “I hope you enjoy this night. Cheers!”

 

Most of the members of the family enthusiastically raised their wine glasses. The night was just beginning.

October 29 - Day One


After the family banquet that had been organized late in the evening on the previous night, the guests had settled into their rooms comfortably, happy and jovial with the outcome of the gathering. They were exhausted, but it had been quite a while before they had the opportunity to gather as a clan. For most of the clan members, it had been sometime since they had communicated with each other for long periods of time.


Deep into the night, a few members of the Fernández family exited their rooms as silently as possible and gathered in the Rose Garden situated just outside of the main room. They settled in one of the dark dead ends of the Rose Garden, only basked by the light of the moon up above. One of them started the conversation. 


"Who should we kill tonight?" they said.


Another one, a younger one at that, replied. "Do we really have to kill members of the same family?"


"Yes. The gathering earlier had shown us that this family is not concerned at all with dealing with the transgressions it had caused upon not just us, but also with the other members of the family." The third replied. "The dark ways of this family have long been unpunished and this should change."


"Umm, alright then. I suppose we could do that." The younger one replied. "It just feels ethically wrong though."


"Worry not, young one." The oldest among the three said, moving forward to the young one. "They shall be ushered into the Land of the Dead in peace and we shall correct the errors of the Fernández family."


In the morning, most of the family were woken  up by a scream from one of the farther rooms in the ancestral home. It was Cecilia Ecleo, standing at the front of her family's second room, her face pale and shocked. The other family members who had responded to the situation quickly realized the reason for her shock.


Her son, Lorenzo Ecleo, was found with a gunshot to his head in the side of the room. The words, "This is not the last," were etched behind his back in blood.


Crimson Dragon has been killed. He was Lorenzo Ecleo.

OK, so we just get the name of the character who died, rather than the player? Huh, I interpreted the initial rule as seeing the player and their character name, but I guess I interpreted wrong.

 

In any case, I feel like a good starting point (unless someone has more direct information) is to see who is present (and thus, still alive), so we can try to determine who the player that just died is.
