    [Signup] Hunter x Hunter Mafia (Game 23)

    I have too many fun ideas for this theme to not implement them. I have hosted before, so do not doubt my prowess. I will adjust the balance for the number of players we get, but every character will have a role (no vanilla).

    I don't wanna see any of that "he claimed X character so you must be Y!" moron action. Play mafia, not multiple choice. Night chat will be allowed and there will be a dead thread. 48 hour day phases like the previous game.

    If the mods tell me I can't host yet I will wait but I have enough of this planned out in my head already to see how many people are interested.

    Sign up here.

    Players so far:
    1. Riki
    2. Nordlending
    3. DoflaMihawk
    4. The Gad Guy
    5. Solaire
    6. Darthe
    7. Ray
    8. Phoenix
    9. King Neti
    10. Cake
    11. Tsu
    12. Shoe
    13. Tiger
    14. Leo
    15. Mish
    16. Kong
    17. Zoro
    18. csarmi
    19. raynp
    20. Great Potato
    21. Cloud
    22. Ragnarok

    SIGNUPS ARE NOW CLOSED

    Rules as I come up with them:
    1. 48 hour day phases, with possible extensions for weekends. Phase change at 9 PM EST.
    2. 24 hour night phases, with possible extensions for weekends.
    3. Talking in-thread is allowed at night. Off-topic discussion is allowed but continuing to hunt is encouraged.
    4. No character revealing, just to thwart you guys who think this is how to play. Cough cough.
    5. Role/ability revealing is allowed but strongly discouraged. Cough cough, hint hint.
    6. Don't sign up if you don't wanna put some effort in and have a memorable game. I'm putting effort into designing and hosting the game for you.


    Here's an example of a character that will NOT be in the game.

    Welcome to Hunter x Hunter mafia! Mind your Ren.

    You are Machi, a member of the Phantom Troupe. You are a Transmuter, which allows you to change the quality of your aura.

    Your ability is Nen Stitches. Your dexterity with stitches allows you to reattach severed limbs.



    [You are a Doctor. Use once per night.]



    Some background on the Hunter x Hunter theme

    From the HxH wiki:

    Hunter × Hunter (ハンター×ハンター, Hantā Hantā), pronounced "Hunter Hunter", is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Yoshihiro Togashi. The story focuses on a young boy named Gon, who discovers that his father, whom he was told was dead, is actually alive and well. He learns that his father, Ging, is a legendary Hunter, an individual who has proven themselves an elite member of humanity and who specializes in finding rare creatures, secret treasures, and other individuals.

    So the premise revolves around the concept of these "Hunters" who have a variety of abilities and goals. Skilled hunters utilize an energy system known as Nen, which is a more complex and interesting version of chakra or ki from other manga series.

    This game is based on the Yorknew City arc of the series, which introduced a lot of cool characters. There are at least four factions of interest highlighted during this arc, which more or less centers around an Underground Auction of illegal and rare goods:

    1. The main protagonists and their allies
    2. The Ten Dons, mafia bosses who run the Underground Auction
    3. The Phantom Troupe (aka the Spiders), rogue villains who plan to rob the auction
    4. Assassins who are cold blooded mercenaries for hire.

    These four factions all have a different interest in the Underground Auction, and they all collide in Yorknew City.

    For the purposes of this game, we haven't actually decided who the "mafia" and "town" are. Due to the complexity of the series, it will likely be more complicated than the standard win conditions of whoever survives wins.

    You are welcome to read more about this arc here: http://hunterxhunter.wikia.com/wiki/Yorknew_City_arc

    You are probably going to see some stuff you haven't before, but don't be scared. New is good.

    The real world is cold! The real world doesn't care about spirit! You want to be a hero? Then play the part and die like every other Huntsman in history! As for me, I'll do what I do best: lie, steal, cheat and survive!

    One thing that will probably be new to you is detailed night action writeups.

    Who needs voting and alignment when you can actively annoy every single player.

    Actually, instead of playing can I mentor someone?

    I could do it as a post game analyisis if you need the players.

    We will probably have trouble finding players otherwise

    If you wanna do that I could compile my own thoughts and share the night actions when the game ends. But I would rather you play than not.
