Mafia: Black Sails [GAME OVER]


Recommended Posts


Welcome to Nassau, 1715, and the Golden Age of Piracy. New Providence Island is the home to many of the world’s most notorious pirates, as well as an established trading system to keep piracy profitable and bring self-sufficiency to the Island. The Guthrie Trading Co. is the pillar in which the Island stands. Without it, the Island would be dysfunctional, and would give Britain’s Royal Navy the opportunity to stop piracy in its tracks.


Upon capturing a Spanish cargo ship at sea, Captain James Flint of the Walrus discovers the route and coordinates of the Spanish treasure galleon called the Urca de Lima. Upon his arrival back in Nassau, secrets are revealed, blood is shed, and select pirates of Nassau have set out on an expedition to acquire the Urca gold for themselves, no matter the cost.


The Nassau Loyalists, the crews and townsfolk of the city know that if the Urca gold is acquired, it would mean the end of piracy in Nassau. Spain will send forces to retrieve what is theirs, the gold would disrupt the trade within Nassau, and the Royal Navy will see this as an opportunity to strike as well, and take Nassau for the Crown.


Nassau Loyalists – it is your job to stop the Urca Expedition at all costs, for if they acquire the gold, it means the end of piracy in Nassau.

Urca Expedition – it is your job to remove Nassau Loyalists who stand in your way, for if the gold is obtained, rich lives await in the colonies.


Roles that will be used include:

Sheriff - The Sheriff is a Townsperson who can investigate one player per round. He will send a PM to the GM with one name; the GM will then inform the Sheriff if that player is Townsperson or Mafia.

Doctor- The Doctor is a Townsperson who can choose one player to "protect" during each night. If the Mafia try to kill a player the Doc has selected for saving, their kill will not go through as the target will be shielded by the Doctor's ability. The Doctor cannot self-save him/herself at all this game. The Doctor's save only applies to one kill attempt per target per round - if, for example, both the Mafia and Serial Killer target the Doctor-protected player; the first attempt will be "saved" but the second will successfully eliminate the targeted player. Doctor saves do NOT keep a TB from dying when they use their ability so don't waste saves on a TB.

Vigilante - The Vigilante is a Townsperson who can kill one person each night. By the end of every round, he must send one name to the GM, and the player he names will be killed prior to the beginning of the next round.

Serial Killer & Blocker Faction - The serial killer/blocker(s) are their own faction. They have the choice of killing or blocking a player once each nightfall. The only way the sk's can win is by being the last one(s) standing (difficult but has happened on several occasions).

Kingpin - The Kingpin is the head of the Mafia. The exact aspects to this role can vary, but generally the Kingpin will get an investigative power every two rounds. He or she will select one name, and the GM will reveal if that name is a Regular Townsperson or a Special Role (i.e. Sheriff, Doctor, Vigilante, Serial Killer). The Kingpin will also show up as "Not Mafia" to the Sheriff. However, the Kingpin cannot submit kills on the Mafia's behalf.

Mafia Nurse - Like the Doctor, the Mafia Nurse chooses one player to protect, except the mafia nurse only does so every odd-numbered round. If a killing faction (Vigilante, Serial Killer or Twinblade) try to kill a player the nurse has selected for saving, their kill will not go through. The Mafia Nurse cannot self-save this game. As with the Doctor role, the Mafia Nurse's save only applies to one kill attempt per target, per round.

Twinblade - The Twinblade is a Townsperson who has a one-time ability to kill another player. However, the catch is that the Twinblade will die as well in their attempt. Doctor saves or Medkits do NOT keep a TB from dying when they use their ability so don't waste saves on a TB. A Lackey block or Mafia Nurse save keeps a TB kill from taking place.

Lackey - The Lackey is a role-blocker who secretly works for the Mafia. The Lackey shows up as Town on investigation. The Lackey chooses one player every even-numbered round to role-block. The chosen target will then be blocked from performing his/her action. The Lackey cannot block an action taken against him/herself. Blocks take place in real-time.

Watcher - The Watcher is a Town-aligned role who chooses one player to "watch" every even-numbered round. If any action is performed on the watched player (i.e. Mafia kill, Vig/SK kill, Sheriff investigation) the Watcher will be informed who targeted the player, although not what action was taken. If multiple actions were performed, the Watcher will only learn of the first action taken. The Watcher is able to "watch" him/herself.

Please note that the above may change depending on the amount of players to start the game.

Round Layout
Each round lasts 24 hours; the next round begins once the previous one ends with a GM update.

During the round, the players will debate and discuss the identities of other players in the game thread, trying to uncover the Mafia in the group. They will then vote on one person, who they believe to be Mafia, to be lynched. At the end of the round, whoever has the most votes will be lynched.

At the same time, via private conversation over the forum's messaging system, the Mafia members will discuss and vote on who they wish to kill that night. Once they've decided, they will inform the GM.

Also during the round, the Sheriff will investigate a player, and the Doctor and Vigilante will send in their target player to save or kill. Any other special roles will also conduct their business prior to the end of the round, unless their role states otherwise.

At 10:00pm, the round will end. The GM will then post the results of who was lynched, who was killed, and whether anyone was saved. The new round will then begin.

Note on order of precedence:
All kills, investigations, saves, etc must be sent via PM to the GM prior to 9:45 pm.

The kill order is:
1) Lynch
2) Twinblade
3) Serial Killer
4) Mafia
5) Vigilante

Any of the above roles who are killed prior to their own attack occurring will not have their kill go through. God Kills (for inactivity or rule-breaking) take precedence over everything.

Notes on voting:
1) Please bold and number your vote in the game thread. E.g. Vote1 Intoewsables (as usual). If you wish to change your vote, please do something like: Unvote1 Intoewsables Vote1 Master Radishes. The exact format does not matter so much as long as it is bolded, with the round numbered and it is clear who you are voting for. Only bolded, and numbered votes count.Nicknames are acceptable, as long as it is obvious who you are referring to.

2) Any votes in edited posts will not count. This is to prevent anyone going back later and secretly changing their vote once it has been cast. If you edit your post at all, you must recast your vote.

3) In the event of a tied vote, there will be no lynching. Instead, the following round, there will be a tiebreaking vote, alongside the regular lynch vote. Therefore, players will vote for two lynchings - one between the tied players, and one for everyone else.


1) Specials must submit their actions to me before 9:45 PM PST each night. All votes must be submitted before10:00 PM PST, at which point Nightfall will commence. Once the Nightfall summary has been posted, the next round will begin.

2) Players are required to submit a vote at least once every 2 rounds. If you go 48 hours without placing a vote, I WILL KILL YOU (I may show leniency to those who post gifs, it better be good or you will die).

Round numbers do not need to be included with votes, but please make sure that all votes are bolded or they will not be counted. (Example: Vote Kryten)
Note: "Vote Abstain" is not a vote, and will not save you from being god-killed.

3) Editing posts is against the rules, you will be given one warning. If it happens again, you will be godkilled. I suggest that if you have something to add or correct, quote your post and fix it in another reply.

4) Last words are for lynched players only. Players killed by Specials do not get last words.

5) Once you've been killed off, do not interfere with the game. Offering your opinion or providing information to players who are still alive takes the fun out of the game for everyone. Failure to abide by this rule may result in a ban from future games.

6) Conversing with other players through PMs is highly encouraged, but inviting players into private role conversations with the GM is not allowed. Taking pictures or screenshots of any PM conversation is also against the rules.

7) Do not bring outside factors into the game. Making bets, offering real-life rewards, or claiming to ban yourself from future games to prove your innocence will not be tolerated. You're all clever enough to come up with better defenses than that.

Each player will also be given an objective and a character. You may choose to pursue your objective, or you may choose to ignore it altogether. Your objective has no affect on how the game is won, however completing your objective gives you bragging rights, and shows that you have what it takes to survive in Nassau. With your character, do with it as you will, however it may be in your best interest to keep your identity a secret, for you never know who may be looking for you!

Hello Rick


By the way, sorry for bailing on that game, I hated Horvat with a burning passion and could NOT get by it do not know why, I haven't disliked anybody so much since UMB/Tiger Singh, I hope you guys don't hate me for it, if you do, sorry, everything he posted pissed me off and made me want to jump through the monitor and rip his throat out;I was hoping exactly what has happened to him would happen.

Besides that, I'm addicted to CDC.

Pretty sure he was a Tiger dupe though. No hard feelings, I was pretty pissed myself.
