Welcome to the peaceful community of Easyville, Arizona. But do not get fooled by the apparent peace. Rumor had it that the infamous Tortellini family had managed to infiltrate the town. Any moment now they can make their presence known in a very painful and lethal way.

And indeed, this morning the town's citizens find the body of one of them at the town square. It is Smarty. On his back a note: you were too slow... arrivederci signore!

The cops of the town can start thinking about their strategy for the coming night. But meanwhile, the townsfolk are keen to revenge Smarty...

The rules of the game:

1. There are four Tortellini's, who know eachother and discuss only during the game's nights by E-mail to select a victim. They announce the victim to me by E-mail.
2. There are two cops who do not know eachother. They investigate one townsfolk per night by sending me an E-mail with the name of their choice. I will tell them whether they have found a mafia or not. How they use that information is to their discretion. Blurting it out means certain death by mafia in the next night....
3. In the game's mornings, I announce the events of the night. During the game's days, the townsfolk select a victim for a lynching by voting in this thread, with or without stating reasons. The first one to get the majority of votes dies. I can decide to set a time limit (at least 24 h in advance) on the voting to speed up the game.
4. Under no circumstances are you allowed to reveal your role in this game outside this thread to other players, not in other parts of the GL, not in chat and not in real life.
5. You are not allowed to show E-mails stating your role either.
6. When you are dead, you are dead!! Under no circumstance can you post relevant information after you die, whether it is by lynching or by mafia . This may be the most important rule of all. It is OK to say something like Ouch, or Bugger, or Go town!, but leave it at that. This holds for the cops as well!
7. If you can no longer play, let me know and I will try to get a replacement for you. Do not commit suicide in the thread.
8. If anything is unclear, E-mail me please.

The living:

Greg
Loki
VinnyQ

The dead:

Purgation (town, lynched)
Silverwolfe (town, killed by mafia)
Felonix (mafia, lynched)
Sifu (cop, killed by mafia)
Sweetwater (mafia, lynched)
Loopydog/Chienfou (town, killed by mafia)
Lube999 (mafia, lynched)
Ferris (town, killed by mafia)
The Master/Death mage (town, lynched)
Fezzik (cop, killed by mafia)
Zesty Spanker (town, lynched)
Coyote/Galin15 (town, killed by mafia)
Avczilla (town, lynched)
Wordcross (town, killed by mafia)

I think only the Mafia would be willing to throw someone out in the wind like that to lynch right away. Just doesn't sounds like the way a proper law abiding citizen would act, therefore I

Yeah, from what I read from the previous maf threads, the first lynching is usually just to start the game off. They rarely get the maf in the first lynch. It's after the first night that people can go back and see if there is any suspicous behaviors.

I am going to hold of on voting for now, till we get a few more posts.

I agree it'd be lucky if we got a Tortellini at the first go. Having followed a few of the games, it seems the better ones are those with lots of discussion and opportunity for people to make defenses - and then hopefully give themselves away as Mafia. What we don't need is lots of non-posters and bandwagons.

With that in mind, we need everyone to speak. I'm going to randomly:-

Vote: Avczilla

until such time as we get a reply. Then I'll be happy to review it.

So far, Smarty, a non-playing member has been killed to mark the beginning, so yes, it's the town's turn to start lynching people, try not to take out the cop in the first round, contrary to good maf tradition

(You don't mind me butting in and help a little on the rules, do you DP?)

Vinny, why did you vote for SilverWolfe saying it was semi-random? Are you mafia trying to pop someone you know is trouble, or are you a cop trying to pop a mafia? Or was it an inside joke that the rest of us missed?

One of the other things I have noticed from the other mafia games is that discussion is good, but it usually took a bandwagon to get that person to finally speak up in their own defense. If everyone just votes for someone else, we won't end up lynching anyone, and then the mafia can just pick us off one by one.

I think we should vote the first voter, just in case.

The "semi-random" comment seems to refrence directly above it. Come on, think outside the box once in a while.

Whoah, so if there's no 50%+ majority, then there's no lynch at all?

I just assumed it was whoever had the most votes...

Felonix, Death Mage is correct, the semi-random comment was referring to the post he did about trying not to be a non-poster, but now that I think of it, it's prbly not a good basis of suspision. I will keep my vote on Wolf for now, since I still haven't a clue who is EVIL SCUM.

so i vote AVCZILLA.
sorry

Zesty = Spirited
Spanker = Fast Horse

The one with the majority of votes gets lynched. For this round, that is 9 votes. If you do not come to a majority in a reasonable time, I will announce a time limit on the voting. At the point of the time limit, I will lynch the one with the most votes. In case of a tie, I will lynch the one who got to that number of votes first.

I will be happy to clarify things along the way - and others can join in as well in the clarifications. Thanks Jesternl.

Oh, and one more thing that most of you have already picked up, please mark your votes in bold so I can easily track them. If you don't know how to make words bold, just put {b} in front of them and {/b} in back, but then with [] instead of {}.

From time to time I will give a voting update, but at the moment that seams a bit superfluous.

content that VinnyQ couldn't be evil AND still give out such nice juicy bones...

Unvote: VinnyQ

I'll follow DeathMage's logic for now, or like others say, we'll get picked off for lack of lynching.

Vote: Purgation

Avczilla is a harsh name?! It's godzilla with my initials replacing the 'god'! bah! and the other person who voted for me supposedbly randomly! i bet you just looked at the list and i was first! bah @ you too.

Now if Purgation was mafia, do you think he would really go and bring attention to himself like that? Maybe since this is his first game he wouldn't know better, but c'mon, how dumb would a maf be?

Im going to wait for more people to vote before I do.

I am agreeing with wolfie, he's a smart doggie after all. I am going to switch my vote to Purgation even tho I am still uncertain on who's who. It's hard to analyze in the first round, especially in a newbie game.

Purgation, if you are maf, good riddence. If not, sorry. Let's see if you can convince me and the others not to lynch you before some of the others vote. And who knows, we might make a matyr out of you, b/c i am sure whatever happen this round will give us a good general direction to weed out those mafia dirtbags by the root in the next.

I agree, I would like to see some better defense than just "sarcasm". Something feels kind of not right about it, but I don't want to lynch an innocent either. So until a poor defense is made, or we start to run out of time...
