    C9 Mafia Game: Snowblind

    This short mafia game is a C9, which means that I will need only seven signups. First seven people to sign up will play. There will be two scum. There might be a doctor, and there might be a cop, but those are not guaranteed.

    The game will have 24 hr nights and preferably 24 hr days as well, although this might be changed for the first day since it likely collides with New Years Eve.

    Setting: Eight men are transporting a very valuable freight across the frozen wastes of Siberia. It's locked safely inside the strong hold of their two trucks, but a violent snowstorm has pinned them down, night is falling, and it looks like the storm won't wane for at least a couple of days. The men know of the importance of the goods they are carrying, and the urgency of their arrival, and decides that one of them, Ryan, who is an experienced skiier, will leave next morning to warn their superiors of the situation.

    But when they wake up in the morning, Ryan is lying prone in his sleeping bag, brandishing several bulletholes in his chest. Apparently, someone among them wants the valuable load for themselves.

    Stuck in a snowstorm with no means of escape for what looks like many days and with someone among them willing to murder to secure the cargo for themselves, the men must resort to the primitive, martial laws of nature in order to survive and guarantee the security of their cargo...

    The game will start with a day phase, and there can be no support votes or abstaining from lynching. Ties will be resolved by a random number generator. Mark votes in traditional manner (Example) and withdrawal of votes in red strikethrough (Example)

    Game will start when sign-ups are filled, in this thread:
    Signups (7/7):

    Choxorn - Lynched Day 1, Scum
    Snerk
    Catharsis
    Civgeneral
    Civplayah
    rhawn
    Electric926

    The game is running! The day ends in roughly 27½ hours.

    Those of you without PMs are ordinary innocents/townies.

    Let the game... Begin!

    Brrr, it's cold innit? We should probably all go and stand near choxorn - do you notice how none of the snow is falling anywhere near him? It's like that guy has his own little microclimate.

    I don't trust Snerk the Norwegian fancyman, he sees faces in inanimate objects you know, he's obviously not all there.

    I'll abstain for now. There's not really anyone to vote for.

    The inanimate faces are telling me to vote for Catharsis.

    I think Snerk knows what he's talking about, let's hang Catharsis.

    Abstaining is a wasted vote. Read the original post.

    In that case, I vote Catharsis. I don't really like random votes, especially when we have nothing to act on.

    Alright, fair enough. Random votes can be annoying. But consider the following:

    We all have to vote for someone because abstaining is not allowed. Traditionally, the first day of a mafia game such as this one starts with a flurry of nonsensical random votes for whoever takes each player's fancy - for example, every single game ever hosted at the .org. My vote put Snerk in very little danger, and I would, of course, have abandoned it if any better leads came up (which they have, now: see below). You can bandwagon me if you wish, choxorn et al, but cease with the 'I don't like random votes' rhetoric and have the decency to call a spade a spade: you voted for me because I was the first person to speak up.

    It is only by tossing some names into the pile that leads will appear - you're all veteran mafia players and you know that very well. The lead that has appeared from both my vote and the votes you placed on me is that some players are unwilling to contribute to the procedure, even going so far as to break the rules by abstaining. In my opinion, that is, to borrow a phrase that Diamondeye might use, 'scummy'. For that reason I remove my vote for Snerk and place a new one on electric926, because being the second to do something is more suspicious than being the first, I think.

    Now see reason, chox, that doesn't make any sense at all. If we have nothing to act on then every vote is essentially a random vote. In fact, the situation you described is the only case where random votes are excusable. :p

    That's not very nice. :(

    Changing my abstination to Catharsis even though it doesn't really matter now.
