    M-FM Valhalla

    Basically, this setup is an improved version of Sengoku Jidai and should be seen as such. I'd like some feedback on it and I'd want to know if you think this is balanced as yet.

    Special Mechanics: You may override your fellow team members' night actions, controlling their night actions.

    Pertinent Rulings: The first time a Mafia PR dies, you will inherit their ability. If this Mafia PR is a blackmailer, you may not use the Blackmail ability to force someone to push a Lynch.

    Apprenticeship gives you a limited usage of their night ability (if they aren't a killer of some sort) and converts you to their alignment. You and your master share a permanent night chat. If your master dies, you will inherit any night abilities and charges they may still have, even if they are a killer.

    Goal: Receive a random person as a target. You and your target must be the last remaining living players in the game. The Tormentor is considered a side of his own, thus the game will not end until he wins or is killed.

    Ability: You can torment your target in two ways, one is by sending anonymous one-way messages to your victim during the day (by PMing the FM master). The other is you can decide to jail him. While in jail your target is roleblocked and protected from death, you can chat with your victim while he is in your holding cell.

    Events: If your target dies at night your new target will be the first one who killed him, you will of course know who it is. If your target is lynched during the day your new target will be randomly selected out of the voters or be the hammer vote (depending on setup), but you won't be able to jail the new target that night even if you planned to jail your former victim. If you ever vote to lynch your victim and he is actually lynched you will suicide the following night.

    Special: The Tormentor always wins alone.

    Spoiler : Sleuth :

    You are a corrupt palace guard, secretly gathering information for sinister motives.

    Spoiler : Joker :

    You MAY target yourself.
    Two charges.

    Potential Feedback

    Spoiler : Feedback :

    Spoiler : Roleblock/Attempted Roleblock :

    An attractive entertainer occupied your night. You were roleblocked!

    Spoiler : Jailed/Kidnapped :

    You were inspecting your cherry garden when you heard a curious noise in your quarters. Suspicious, you draw out your sword and slowly approach your quarters... A quick rush of air and alas a hooded, masked man has overpowered you and knocked you out from behind! You frantically try to resist, but the man manages to stab you with a pin! As the stars in the sky slowly blur away, the gravity of the situation dawns on you: you have been kidnapped!

    You awaken, alone, in a dark room, your hands unbound. A parchment lies on the table in front, reading:"[Jailor's Jail Message Appears Here]".

    Your captor finally enters the room and starts interrogating you.

    Spoiler : Auditor's Feedback :

    You investigated the late [TARGETNAME]'s finances last night, uncovering their occupation: [TARGETROLE], as well as their testament: [TARGETWILL].

    Spoiler : Sleuth's Feedback :

    You stealthily made your way to [TARGETNAME]'s quarters last night, finding and stealing their last will and testament. Upon returning home, you...

    a) decide to keep the last will as is and return it to your target's home
    b) decide to forge the documents

    Their last will was:


    Spoiler : Private Message from the Tormentor :

    While walking in the streets of Kyoto, you pass by a shadowy but well-mannered samurai, dressed in ceremonial robes. He slips, and, you, in good faith, offer to help him up. The stranger is thankful, but he immediately disappears after you turn around. Bewildered by his sudden disappearance, you reach for your sword, when you notice a small piece of parchment in your sleeve. It reads:


    Spoiler : Ronin Pledges Allegiance To You :

    Late at night, a landless retainer demands an audience with you. 'This man says he will pledge himself to you, body, sword and soul, if only you would teach him your ways', one of your guards says. You hastily let the man in. Bowing before you with great respect, he refuses to reveal his identity, for he says he has many enemies at court and that these are dangerous times. 'Dangerous times indeed', you remark as you ponder whether you should accept his loyalty or not. After much debate, the samurai convinces you to take him in and you decide to grant him a parcel of land from your personal estate, in exchange for his service.


    Link to anon chat: [LINK.GOES.HERE]

    Spoiler : Your Master was lynched! :

    You did not believe it at first. It seemed that time itself was shutting down. Your master, of all people, accused of plotting to overthrow the Shogun himself? It was a baseless accusation, one without honour. And yet, he was found guilty of treason and executed. One thing is clear in your mind. You are forever dishonored by having followed this man. Bushido code demands your honorable death by suicide. But perhaps it would be a stronger message indeed if you took someone else with you first? Your Master would've wanted it so. His killers must be brought to justice.


    Spoiler : Role Card :


    You win if you are lynched during the day.

    Spoiler : Your Master was killed at night! :

    You hurriedly race towards your Master's quarters, knowing full well you have little time to waste. The walls appear to have been hacked with an axe! And the guards are dead. Heart pumping and filled with a mixture of fear and disgust, you rush to your Master's bedroom, only to find him already dead and the killer escaped. You vow vengeance on those who have killed your master and dishonored you! 'There is no way out of this, save to commit sepuku! But I may take some of those spineless, honourless scoundrels with me, first,' you think to yourself.

    Spoiler : Role Card :


    You win if you are lynched during the day.

    Rules of Conduct

    Insults are alright, but do not take it too far.
    Don't discuss the game outside of officially approved channels.
    Do not quote PMs from me.
    Be active.
    Don't gamethrow, threaten to gamethrow, or even attempt to gamethrow.
    Don't grief.
    Anon accounts, if people want. I recommend this so I can replace Mafioso with Disguiser.
    If a Ventriloquist/Disguiser/Blackmailer end up in the game (i.e. the setup is anon), then you are allowed (and encouraged) to encode your posts with a cypher. You have to PM me the code beforehand and explain in detail what exactly your code does. You may only submit codes that you generated yourself, pen&paper; don't use a computer program to generate it for you, because it would be unfair then.
    Everything else is allowed.


    1. Q: Can Janitor (Incense Master) sanitize a lynched player's role and last will?
    1. A: Yes. They would have to use their ability on that specific player the previous night.

    2. Q: What happens if we lynch a Dishonored Ronin?
    2. A: A random voter will perish.

    3. Q: Can Jailor or Kidnapper use their ability if a player was lynched that day?
    3. A: No.

    4. Q: Can Ronin (Student) be roleblocked?
    4. A: No. It is a non-targeted ability, meaning that they do not visit they target.

    5. Q: What kind of night actions can a Coroner detect?
    5. A: They can see a role blocker, Disguiser/Mafioso/Vigilante, Auditor, Blackmailer, Coroner, Sleuth and Janitor visit at night. In addition, they can detect Jailor or Kidnapper executions.

    6. Q: What happens if the Tormentor's target dies?
    6. A: The Tormentor commits suicide.

    7. Q: Can we lie about the Mechanics?
    7. A: Yes, but if I am asked directly, I will give the correct answer to the question. I won't cover for your lie.

    8. Q: Can a blackmailed person state that they are blackmailed?
    8. A: Not unless the Blackmailer specifically told them to do that.

    Additional notes

    There are three separate jail chats, not all of which are necessarily active at the same time. They have similar names (Cell Block R-47, Cell Block J-19 and Cell Block G-48. I will randomize (before game start) the roles which are assigned the Cell Blocks (Jailor, Kidnapper, Tormentor).

    I'm adding an observer/dead chat for this game. It's located in the same place as the night chats. If you want to talk to join in the observer discussion, you need to PM me (after the game starts) so I can send you the password and login. I may add some mini-games in the Observer chat so people can have fun.

    Link to the night chats (they are or SHOULD be invisible):

    Re: M-FM Valhalla

    Please, PLEASE, no 36h days....... it means that either start or end of day will be in a shitty time for literally everyone.

    And with so many people, plurality would be nice IMO. It always ends up being the only way to make the game move anyway.

    Re: M-FM Valhalla

    I didn't know there were Shōguns, Odas, and samurai/ronins in Northumbria. ;-)

    I think the setup itself is nice. Maybe removing 1 neutral would be nice, though, as there are a lot of anti-town roles, and Mafia has 4 members. 1 neutral should be enough.

    Just realized Mafia has no factional kill! Nevermind the last sentence, it's perfect. By handpicking roles, you can really make this a fun game. Just fix role names, descriptions and wincons, and we should be good.

    Also, Vengeful can just be called Vengeful Thane lol

    Also, putting a Disguiser into that changes the whole thing...
