    This mini-game is sponsered by the Temple of Furuyama.

    This little game is similar in style to the Mafia games played in the other games forum occasionally here at CFC. The premise is simple: Of the group of players, one or two are chosen (secretly) to be the 'Mafia.' Each 'night,' the Mafia sends a PM to the game master, indicating one person among the group he wishes to murder. Each 'day,' the murder is discovered, the group of players attempt to deduce whodunnit. The players vote for whom amongst themselves they think is the Mafia, and in a sudden flash of justice, he with the most votes is murdered by the players. Of course, the players won't always be right. The game continues until either the Mafia is killed by the players, or until everyone other than the Mafia is left standing.

    For the purpose of our mini-game, there will be some differences:
    One, we will use your RPG character (though, this game affects nothing else - even if your character is murdered here, it won't count anywhere else).

    Two, players will be encouraged to roleplay the entire affair. There will be a setting (my current idea is that players will play the role of guests at the Temple of Furuyama).

    Three, when the Mafia does kill someone, a story will accompany with the details of the murder. Clues will be placed in these stories, so read between the lines. :)

    So, if you're interesting, say so here, and suggest ideas to make the game more interesting. Then, we'll start the official sign up after some opinions have been expressed.

    The Cast of Characters
    (names in red indicate a deceased person).
    1. Riko Anjin (revolutionary)
    2. SaaMsan (crazy person/Commander of the Imperial Intern Army/MURDERER)
    3. Real Pave (part-time fisherperson)
    4. blackheart (soldier)
    5. Meta (charismatic monk)
    6. BCLG100 (SaaM's wacky sidekick)
    7. Civanator (rouge samurai)
    8. Jack Ijuno (samurai and trainer)
    9. Zio (thief)
    10. Noldodan (rather unfriendly goverment agent/MURDERER)
    11. Hydrino Quatton (bowman)
    12. Wolfgansan (musician)
    13. Myein (swordsman of the Imperial Army)
    14. CivGeneral (skilled fighter)
    15. Ankka
    16. Octavian V (Temple Keeper, game master)

    SaaMsan is the winner! :goodjob:

    Sounds nifty. Count me in. Now the question is: is the nasty assassin Internal Security officer a member of the Mafia?

    SaaMsan is so in. And he even has a crew! Miei Interni (as opposed to the famous Cosa Nostra, which I'd don (heh) if I had to)

    edit: SaaMsan.
    Age 21.
    Occupation: Mild Manered Associate Trade Deputy Who Does All The Work, Gets None Of The Credit And Is Just Generally Pissed (see also: Postal Worker)
    NPCs: 14 nameless interns, a flautist named Qui.
    REAL Occupation: Crazy person.

    This looks good. :D

    OK, then, we'll go on with my intended them: the guests of the Temple will be our poor suspects. To finish the sign up, just state the 'occupation' of your character. This is, of course, for the purpose of our RP during the game. :)

    And, remember, only one character per poster. You may have NPCs around, but then it gets unfair if multiple people have multiple personalities.

    So... Ankka is someone who hangs around waiting for action... that can be often found around certain people, he has found out.

    I think that was all...

    the purpose of my character is probably to go on 'wacky' adventures with SaaMsan and occasionally ankka and octavian V if they feel like it.

    My character is a thief. He is mainly a simple pickpocket/conman, but he is working on a major heist(But thats another story, coming to a forum near you).

    Pretty stereotypical character: government assassin/interrogator/intelligence-gatherer, generally very unfriendly.
