[Mini] The Songs In My Head: Game Over: Mafia & Neutral Victory

World is on fire
It's more than I can handle
I'll tap into the water
Try and bring my share
I try to bring more
More than I can handle
Bring it to the table
Bring what I am able

-Sarah McLachlan, "World On Fire"
20061164lastfm.png

The music in my head has always been a little unusual, some might call it quirky or diverse. But it's worked - it's been an environment that engenders thought. And now - something's changed. I can't think any more - the music's dying, bit by bit. Something's killing it, breaking it down, murdering inspiration and energy in equal measures.

Help me.

Please.


The scene inside the mind is a little different - the grand central chamber, a ballroom beaten out in glass, gold, silver and stone choked with throngs of people, collapsed against each other on the floor. There's no song, no dancing, just nervous murmuring. The Muses take the stage - a quartet, the rulers of this solemn, sacred space. They arbitrate, control, administer. "Calm down, calm down everyone," they ask in harmonic unison. "We are not sure that anything is wrong...certainly these recent disappearances are unnerving, but we will do our best to understand and deal with this issue." They continue, but any further words have been obliterated, shut out by the high, girlish scream that comes from a nearby hallway.

Everyone turns and looks in alarm: Vow's voice is...was unmistakable.

    The usual phalla stuff:
    If you are dead, you may not speak to any other player, LIVING OR DEAD, about the game. One dead post is acceptable, but it should be nothing more than “Oh crap I died.” or some variant thereof.
    No anonymous contact. All PMs or messages outside of the forums must be done with full disclosure of your forum identity.
    You may not use screenshots to “prove” anything to anyone.
    You are free to create Proboards, make sure you give me access so I can examine them. You can send in orders by Proboard; if there is a conflict, PMs override the Proboard.
    No direct sharing of role PMs.

    Vote to lynch someone in red.
    Clarifications in orange.

    Vote close is at 11 pm EST.

    Game mechanics:

    Order of Actions: Primary actions occur first, then secondary actions, and finally tertiary actions. Special actions may occur at any time.

    Gender: Each role has a gender - male, female, both, or none. Some effects may only apply to roles of a specific gender.

    Remix: Some abilities in the game possess the ability to remix players, granting them new or changed abilities and/or qualities.

    Whim & Whirl: Each day, the mass of music in my head will pull something out of the mind to focus on. The song chosen will provide an additional effect for that day. Effects are generally quite powerful; they can harm or hurt the village.

    A list of the songs that can be chosen from follows:
    Ada - Cool My Fire (I'm Burning)
    Amon Amarth - Free Will Sacrifice
    Anaal Nathrakh - Timewave Zero
    Anthrax - Room For One More
    Arsis - We Are The Nightmare
    ATB - Miss A Day
    Billy Talent - Red Flag
    Bloodbath - Ominous Bloodvomit
    Boards of Canada - Magic Window
    Bruce Dickinson - Kill Devil Hill
    Children of Bodom - We're Not Gonna Fall
    Chimaira - Inside The Horror
    Cradle of Filth - An Enemy Lead The Tempest
    Dark Tranquillity - The Endless Feed
    Dead Can Dance - In Power We Entrust The Love Advocated
    Delain - Day For Ghosts
    Emiliana Torrini - Telepathy
    Husky Rescue - Nightless Night
    Ladytron - Destroy Everything You Touch
    Khoma - One Of Us Must Hang
    Throwing Muses - Bright Yellow Gun

    Sourcing: All songs (from which roles and game concepts are developed) are taken from my listening history, available at http://www.last.fm/user/Arivia. No roles are generated at the artist or album level, and no roles have been generated from soundracks (Yuki Kajiura, Shoji Meguro,) or long narrative works (Jeff Wayne, Stuart McLean.)

    There is no generic villager pm. Most players however, do lose the game when outnumbered by inimical forces to music, and win when those forces have been eliminated. This is not a faction phalla.

    The votes have fallen
    My value has dropped
    But don't shed a tear
    Network heads walk like they own the place
    Whilst others creep in fear
    So try if you can to walk like a man
    But you don't come near

    You've got to fly like an eagle
    Prowl like a lion in Africa
    Leap like a salmon home from the sea
    To keep up with me
    You've got to walk like a panther tonight
