    Reminder

    If your team name ends with a "d", please contact me. We have a proboard and are on our way to getting that power.

    Infiltrators beware: I've already had some people who were clearly taking a shot in the dark and thought they knew what my team would be, those people are now on my shortlist.

    Get it out of your system, Obifett.

    I called you a prick on some proboards a few months ago because you were being one.

    Plus, I am thinking there are 5 teams. Because with 40 people the only factors are 4,5,8,10. 4 teams of 10 is too much for anyone to get their team power. 5 teams of 8 is a little more difficult but at least somewhat manageable. Pretty sure there aren't 8 or 10 teams, that would just be too many factions and no enough mafia to infiltrate all of them.

    Possible team list:

    Hey guys.

    Bonus powers are good for the village.

    So don't go around infiltrating other teams because you think you're too cool for school.

    I highly doubt most teams are going to get all 10 (8?) people because, you know, inactives and such, but we shouldn't be hampering each other at this early stage.

    Except there is no common village. You would know that if you read the villager PM. Since you clearly didn't, you're obviously a cheater MrT[/color

    Then why does the OP say:
    Villager Role PM
    It may well be a faction game, but everybody has to take care of the mafia. Ergo, the factions are a village in a sense.

    No, the mafia is a separate faction. And the not-mafias are factions.

  • ObiFettObiFett Use the Force As You WishRegistered User regular
    hm

    8 mafia would fit better in a 4 team game at 2 mafia per team

    8 mafia fit awkwardly into 5 teams.

    Are there usually more or less mafia in faction games like this?

    THE MAFIA BE A FACTION THAT INFILTRATES OTHER FACTIONS
    Victory Condition: At the end of the closing ceremonies, your team must lead in the medal count. Your team will receive 3 points for every gold, 2 points for every silver and 1 point for every bronze medal. Be aware that cheaters are in it only for themselves. Any medal earned by a cheater will be counted towards the cheaters, not towards their team.

    Yes. that's standard in faction game (otherwise you could easily filter mafia by comparing team lists).

    One of burnage's games even had mafia within mafia within factions within somethingelseIlosttrack

    Not just a faction game, but also a 'get medals' game rather than elimination. That's a big factor.

  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    There was a mafia and then two other, super secret mafias I think.

    Also, the mafia actually don't necessarily have to be dealt with. We just have to make sure they're not on top... sort of like every other team. The game ends after a fixed number of days and whichever team is on top, wins. The mafia are simply in a better position to win due to being able to cut down winning teams due to infiltration

    hm, no offense Saber, but I am realizing that this is a borderline phalla. We don't need to eliminate the mafia to win. I don't see the uninformed majority v the informed minority.

    Because of that, I have no idea what a balanced number of mafia would be and am tired of trying to figure it out. I assume we will get a better idea of everything in play after day 1 narration and results.

  • MrTLiciousMrTLicious Registered User regular
    There's almost certainly way fewer cheaters than usual mafia. Even if the village did have to eliminate the mafia to win, the rivalness of the game gives an advantage to the mafia, meaning their numbers would have to be lower.

    Of course, there's the possibility that cheaters don't know other cheaters, and they are more like neutrals than anything else.

    It sorta fits with uninformed majority vs informed minority, it's just in this case the uninformed majority is also competing with itself.
    It's still in every teams best interest to deal with the mafia/cheaters first. It doesn't matter how much it looks like your team is winning if at the end it turns out half your medals go towards the cheaters faction instead.

  • RetabaRetaba A Cultist Registered User regular
    Eh what? Why would the mafia be more like neutrals? That would just this make more of a faction game, I think that we got a village PM means they are more than that. This is more like Popephalla.

  • BluecyanBluecyan Oh great. It's Master BelchRegistered User regular
    Well, I wouldn't make so many assumptions yet. If I understand things properly after a few nights we should be able to hazard a guess at the % of mafia based on medal count presuming mafia medals are kept separate from the teams. For the time being we should probably play by normal phalla logic, mafia = bad, if they win, we lose. First things first inactives are going to be crippling ALL teams this game, please be active people, any village team with powers is bad for the mafia, so while it may not benefit you individually to help another team, overall the village is better. If everyone goes by this logic then the all village members will benefit.

    I might make the suggestion that each team nominate a mouth piece for their board. This should allow us to facilitate information, further there are already a few people that have declared their teams so its not like they are giving up more information. If we focus too much on team versus team stuff it'll make it easier on the mafia. Therefore as a village we should strive to keep things as balanced as possible, atleast for the first few days.

    I'm tired and probably won't check in the rest of the day due to real life game day until almost vote close. So, here's my vote on Vagrant Winds for outing me in the last mini in case I don't make it at all.

    since I can't edit, PrecisionK seems like the obvious choice. But it seems odd that people would be aware of him.

    That would be a tad unfair, although if I recall correctly jdark's l4dead game did that (I think it was l4dead). 8 max. 7 and 6 are also possible, even though there would be uneven distributions among teams. Ahava rng'd this in her faction game (which teams got mafiosos), but I believe she did it in such a way where a team could be completely clean and another could be infiltrate to high hell. It turned out to turn out that most ended up with only 1 and only one other ended up with two (I believe).

    It would also be unfair to have basically 5 equally sized factions (the case where there are 8 mafia and 4 groups of 10), the only difference being that one of the factions is masoned.

    Agreed, but I think that's the one of the few alternatives to my other explanation, which was that they are much less numerous than in a typical game.
