    Mechanics:
    Days last 48 hours
    Nights last 24 hours
    Last wills allowed (and encouraged)
    No death notes
    Lynch requires 51% votes and will use the [vote] tags.
    Day immediately ends after a lynch
    Night actions must be PM'd to me or posted in night chat
    Graveyard will reveal role but not method of death
    Game starts with day 1, lynch possible.

    Special Mechanics:
    Before the game begins, I will decide if we will be playing Setup A,B,C,D,E, or F. Which setup we are playing will not be publicly announced, and it is up to players to figure out and pursue the appropriate win condition.

    Win Conditions:
    Setups A,D:
    Mafia: Eliminate the Town and have at least one member of the Mafia survive, or make it so nothing can stop you from doing so.
    Town:Eliminate the Mafia and have least one member of the Town survive.
    Conspiracy Theorist: Recant your theories, and achieve your new role's win condition.
    Survivor: Survive until the end.
    Amnesiac: If you remember you were another role, achieve that role's win condition. Otherwise, survive until the end.
    Jester: Be lynched before the end of the game.

    Mafia wins all ties.

    Setups B,C,E,F:
    Illuminati: Eliminate the Non-Illuminati and have at least one Illuminati survive, or make it so nothing can stop you from doing so.
    Non-Illuminati: Eliminate the Illuminati and have at least one Non-Illuminati survive.

    Illuminati wins all ties.

    Rules:
    1. Inactives will be replaced. Missing a night action without telling me "perform no action" counts as inactivity, as does not posting in the first 36 hours of a day.
    2.No out-of-game communication.
    3. No editing or deleting posts.
    4. No videos or links. (Pictures OK, but keep them reasonable)
    5. No invisible text.
    6. No quoting PM's.
    7. English only.
    8. No excessive trolling/personal attacks

    Re: S-FM Illuminati

    I love this setup.

    If th Consiglire kills the Godfather in setup B does he become the Illuminati?

    Also, please reconsider the Conspiracy Theorists win condition. Currently he should just claim and lurk the whole game.

    Perhaps make him always see things as if the illuminati is real, and his wincondition is to declare his assumption of the real setup at the time of his death/game end.

    Glad to hear it! My current thoughts for revision are to add more possible setups, (One of which probably includes SK; I'd like to make Conspiracy Theorist show as SK to sheriff to make his win harder) and buff the Illuminati somehow; it seems right now that if the Illuminati lose the Godfather, they simply lose.

    No, a Consig killing an Illuminati GF remains anti-Illuminati. (it wouldn't make sense if killing someone to pursue his wincon would change his wincon, anyways)

    My intention is that he should not be safe claiming right away. I was hoping I had given enough tools for town to consider lynching him if they felt like they were in Setup A and didn't have any leads, and I wanted him to have a vest so he felt like he could lurk and then scumside. In setup B, he's basically just a town role, and he's in a good place there. It's just setup A I'd worry about, so I'll look into it some more.

    I had considered making him a "setup guesser" win condition before, but I couldn't find a way to do that that actually encouraged him to play/post.

    No it doesnt. I was just making sure, im glad you have the right view there.

    Any thought to Conspiracy Theorist? I like the idea of a sort of self aware role, but right now hes just a lurking role, which seriously doesnt seem like your goal.

    I mean, town shouldnt lynch him cause he shouldnt do anything in the game.

    I really think finding a setup guessing process would be good, thematic and forces him to be involved, which currnetly he just isnt

    I actually imagined him more as an Illuminati-overthrower, who may or may not be sane. I don't want him to just find out if he's right; I want him to help kill the Illuminati as well. Balance wise, the missing role in Setup A that makes the most sense is a survivor, which is what he is. Would you say that you're against survivors in setups in general, or against this one in particular?

    My idea for "why should town kill him?" was that he has a gun, which could really change, say, a 4v2v1 situation. I've also considered having him flip scummy to sheriffs, which is part of why I also want an SK-normal and SK-Illuminati setup.

    One mechanic I had considered was giving him the ability to "recant." If we're in setup A, he instantly wins. If in setup B, he loses, even if Illuminati dies at the end.

    My intention is that they cannot. I'm still mulling over letting there be extra masons who share a mason chat with illuminati masons if they exist, but I'll update the OP to reflect that masons can't random at this point.

    I am not opposed to this.

    Re: S-FM Illuminati

    I've thought it over some more, and now I'm favoring adding the 'recant' mechanic to the Conspiracy Theorist. If he recants in Setup B, he loses for giving up on his true theories. (probably resulting in a kill that night; I'm not yet sure how to make sure his death isn't a clue there is an illuminati, or if I should just be fine with this) If he recants in Setup A, however, he becomes schizophrenic (becoming an amnesiac), suicidal (becoming a jester), or withdrawn (becoming a survivor).

    Thoughts? I like that it makes it harder to win (no inactive lurking to victory for this neut) and involves him actually deciding if there is an Illuminati.

    Re: S-FM Illuminati

    That works, its a bit more convuluted, but so are conspiracy theories. It stays thematic though which is the main goal.

    I wouldnt say im against Survivors in any way. But i am infinitely against Survivors that think they arent just survivors. I had a Survivor in all 3 of my Avatar series games. They had the option to sit and lurk, or to solo win by playing the game mechanics properly. Even in the case of having the chance to solo win the only one that won just claimed early and waited for victory.

    I dont mind the role at all, but the surviving until end of game isnt a very dynamic one, and shouldnt be applied to dynamic roles and mechanics.

    Re: S-FM Illuminati

    Also added a little bit of RP.

    Re: S-FM Illuminati

    How would anyone feel like a Setup C with 1 SK, 2 Jesters, and 7 town, with a Setup D where the SK and Jesters are actually Illuminati?

    I had also been thinking of a setup where the Godfather, rather than the Consig, is Illuminati. This way, a mafia GF doesn't know they're in Setup A. I'm not sure how/if I want to do something similar for the Masons.

    Re: S-FM Illuminati

    As another "balance" thing, I'm thinking of changing the Conspiracy Theorist's Setup A night-check mechanic. I worry that currently he can check a confirmed non-mason/mafia and then disprove his theory if he gets an Illuminati result. I might make it so positive results are the would-be Illuminati, if one existed.

    My main reason why not is that it's harder to balance a higher number of setups, and I don't want this to be total chaos. I wanted more of a "you can't trust your leaders" feel than a "you don't know who to trust" one. I'm still open to having a few more permutations, but I don't want them too different in flavor from what I have here. While they don't make a lot of sense in 2-scum games, I was thinking of a permutation that includes a mayor who may or may not be part of the Illuminati.

    Re: S-FM Illuminati

    My first impression is that Setup A is so town favored that it is not reasonable for you to run that one, making it obvious which setup is being run. 2 man Mafia vs essentially Town and friend, except the Town has Masons.

    It was understanding that 7v2v1 was considered the usual "balance" around here for 10-player games, but I can run 6v3v1 if that seems better. 3 Mafia could give me more opportunities for permutations of who's in the Illuminati, but I was predicting 6v3v1 to be far too pro-mafia to be fair.

    Looks good, I think having a mayor in this setup with only 2 mafia is very over powered though . . . .but given the WIFOM could definitely work.

    I like how once you figure out if there is or isn't a mayor in the setup the amount of variability in the setups drops down to just 3 from 6. This might give the mayor a little too much advantage in the beginning. . . .

    I like how once you figure out if there is or isn't a mayor in the setup the amount of variability in the setups drops down to just 3 from 6. This might give the mayor a little too much advantage in the beginning. . . .
    I agree that the mayor has it too easy; they know which setup they're in! I am open to suggestions for how to screw over the mayor. Right now, I am hoping the possible lack of trust in them would be good enough, but I doubt it is. (How much of a reason does a Conspiracy Theorist have to NOT shoot a revealed Mayor?)

    I can see an argument for this, since the Illuminati can't control the Mafia kill anymore. This means I'll have to make more Illuminati rolecards, though. I worry that if any role can be potentially Illuminati, I'll have crossed the line into "paranoid chaos."

    Discuss if this would be a good thing or bad thing.

    Mayor is illuminati in 2/3 of the setups he's in, making him super underpowered due to the sheer scare factor that an illuminati would be running the town.

    I can't quite do that because there are some rolecards I want to be different; I need the mafia consig to be able to kill a godfather, but an Illuminati one can't. A sheriff doesn't make sense as Illuminati, since they already know the mafia, so I made him detect exact role.

    This is by design. I like this mechanic.

    Re: S-FM Illuminati

    Now that your other game is finished, I can begin another round of review on this setup and approve it in a reasonable amount of time.

    There's a lot of setups though so it'll probably take me until after work to start.

    Setup A is a town steamroll. Masons prevent Mafia from taking control of day chat and the Mafia night chat will be filled with paranoia, which gimps their coordination. Setup D is slightly more winnable but the numbers have it stacked against the Mafia

    To the illermernerty, the lone Mafia represents one of the greatest threats to them, as he can cull one of their main members. But it's very easy to dispose of him since they already know his identity. Is this intended?

    My plan was to balance setups with the hidden roles, and I already planned, but not publicly shared, how many power roles I would put in each setup. Or are you saying that A and D are too hard to Mafia, even if every hidden is a cit?

    Re: S-FM Illuminati

    Despite the one-time vest and one-shot gun, Conspiracy Theorist has a very difficult wincon. Basically needs the Illuminati to be eliminated (or not exist in the first place), recant, and then win as another role with that role's separate wincon. Also, information in the non-Illuminati setups is unreliable so it would be difficult to know when to recant. I might suggest giving him an alternate win condition of survive until the end of the game OR if you recant, win as your new role's wincon. Survival isn't necessarily going to be that easy either given the different factions.

    I've designed the non-Illuminati setup to give him some clues, such as if he checks role that would be in the Illuminati (mayor, mason) and it comes up as not being in it.

    I actually think survival is a relatively easy goal if he has to claim his role; after all, if there is a conspiracy, he's one of the strongest anti-Illuminati forces, and that chance alone may keep him alive.

    For setup A, even if every hidden role was a citizen I'd think it's too hard still. Masons are insanely powerful in this small setup.

    Orpz, I can drop a hidden town and make this a 9P game. I think I might also make the Godfather's kill a sanitize+kill, with the Godfather being told the role of who they cleaned.

    Beyond that, I kinda have to ask you to trust me that I will balance this in the hidden roles.

    All due respect, but I think most around here would consider 2 Masons+5 Cits vs 2 Mafia vs 1 Neut to be a little more scumsided than your usual S-FM.

    I am a man of my word and have done these things. Now that I think about it, I may just make this a no-role reveal game. Looking for feedback from Orpz before making further modifications.

    For setup E, I'm a little concerned about the power of the Illuminati faction. It's 3v6, but they start off with majority since Mayor gets a total of 3 votes. Of course, that is a high risk play so it's not necessarily game breaking.

    All in all, I can trust you for these setups.

    Hmm... good point. Mayor votes reduced to 2.

    I also changed setups D and E to have Hidden Illuminati instead of hidden citizens as part of my behind-the-scenes balancing. Hidden Illuminati can now also be cits.
