Choose Your Own Wincon Mafia was a game designed and hosted by Aura based on her own idea.
It began on April 4th, 2012 and ended in a Usual Suspects win in N3 (April 11th).
Game Mechanics Edit
OOP - Redirect>trap>block ~~ Kills are non-blocking
No Faction OOP - Loop with only blocks = all blocked Loop of only traps = all trapped Loop of only redirects = all fail
Redirects: Cannot redirect FID Kill, RID Kill, ask host yes/no qu or a player who didn't act for any reason (e.g- blocked, didn't enter an action). Sucess/fail results will be returned. If spy redirected, spy receives correct result of new target (B is [B's role/action] not A is [B's role/action])
FID Kill can be blocked but not redirected. If correct FID blocked, FID Killer will be notified their ID was correct. Target can be trapped/protected.
RID Kill cannot be blocked or redirected but target can be trapped/protected.
ODTG Abilities cannot be acted upon as there is no action carrier. Each BTSC holds one set of actions and if a ODTG ability is included in the last post of submitted actions, it will be put through.
Resurrect, prevent reveal and lynch save are not used up unless needed. Hence, if the target isn't lynched/dead, the BTSC retains the action
Voting: Borda voting used whereby you vote for up to 3 players.
- If vote for 3 players, 1st choice = 3 points, 2nd choice = 2 points, 3rd choice = 1 point.
- If vote for 2 players, 1st choice = 2 points, 2nd choice = 1 point.
- If vote for 1 player, 1st choice = 1 point.
Strengthen your vote - Twice during the game, each player can add one extra vote to their own vote on a player. The extra vote can be added to your 1st, 2nd or 3rd choices (Borda voting). The catch is it must be added publicly as follows:
Aura - voting for [Bob, Anna, Lily] +1 Anna
The vote is used up if it appears on the final roster, regardless of who gets lynched.
Wincon - Last Alliance Standing OR RID Guess all factions. BTSC, no group kill
Last Alliance Standing - Around N2, all teams secretly nominate which other team they want to win with. When players from only two teams are alive, if either team allied with the other, they win. If not, it goes to last faction standing.
Example: Team A allies with Team B, B allies with C, C allies with A, D allies with C. At a certain point in the game, there are 2 As and 3 Bs remaining. The last of the Cs and Ds have died. In this case, A wins as C and D are eliminated. If B had allied with A, they too would win but as they allied with C, they cannot win until factions A and D are eliminated.
During N1/D1, all teams may send one message to another team and reply to all messages received. This is for the purposes of deciding their wincon alliance which will be submitted to the host on N2.
RID Guess all factions - Optionally, the factions can concurrently RID Guess the other factions each night cycle. As they have BTSC and 4 actions to help them ascertain roles, the only result they will receive in reply to their guesses are:
- 0-3 roles correct
- 4-7 roles correct
- 8-11 roles correct
- All roles correct
The first team to eliminate their competition, OR correctly RID Guess the other factions, wins. More than one faction can win if they reach their wincon during the same cycle.
- Each faction has the same make-up of roles:
- Action spy (discloses targets action not role or target)
- Trap (block/save at night; cannot vote/be voted for in day; is not silenced)
- Odd nights: Redirect, Even nights: Faction ID Kill
- Die roll
- Role Spy
- Ask host a yes/no question
- Protect a player from being acted upon, (allows player to act)
- RID Kill
Team A - PowerPuff Girls
- Blossom - action spy
- Buttercup - Odd nights: Redirect, Even nights: FID Kill
- Bubbles - trap
- Professor - die roll
Team B - Usual Suspects
- Kevin Spacey - action spy
- Nicolas Cage - trap
- Robert De Niro - Odd nights: Redirect, Even nights: FID Kill
- Gabriel Byrne - die roll
Team C - Half-shell Heroes
- Leonardo - action spy
- Raphael - Odd nights: Redirect, Even nights: FID Kill
- Donatello - trap
- Michaelangelo - die roll
Team D - The Powerplayers
- Akriti - action spy - Aki lies low and watches the players with her ever-logical mind.
- Sparrowhawk - Odd nights: Redirect, Even nights: FID Kill - SH will redirect the attention of those who suspect him then attack them when they least expect it.
- Nana - trap - Once Nana has you in her sights, she doesn't let go.
- Plasmid - die roll - Plasmid is difficult to read and has several tricks up his sleeve.
ODTG Abilities (Once During The Game) Each faction has all ODTGs
- Resurrect (night) OR Prevent reveal of a lynched players role (day) - Can only use one of these
- Resurrect a player not of your faction
- Spy dead player
- Make a player's action unblockable and unredirectable for one night.
- Lynch save someone from another faction. No RID needed.

Day and Night Posts Edit
I'll write up a proper post later but for now:
Player targets will always be in orange and actors in their faction color to differentiate between e.g - Nana7 the role and Nana the player.
Due to the Easter weekend, day 1 will end on Sunday at 10 PM Board Time. This is also the deadline for finishing the message sending and replying. I will forward messages on as they are finalized by factions.
Day 1 tie lynch rules are no-one dies.
The characters had come together to engage in this battle of wits. They had fully expected it to be gory and had engaged therapists, gone through advanced warfare training courses and most important of all, written cheesy victory songs to maintain morale. Now, after 4 days, still no-one was dead wacko.gif
"As soon as I saw the Powerpuff girls on the roster, I freakin' knew this would either be a cake-walk or an all out blood thirsty battle. I mean, they are cartoon characters, ffs." said Plasmid. " wacko.gif " the others said.
"Why are you talking like Aura? Is she playing and you're hosting?"
"Nah", said Plasmid, "but she is writing the story" shrug.gif
After breakfast, the characters looked at their timetables. "Great, we have an obstacle course today, at the adventure playground! But first, we are supposed to lynch a player." hm.gif
"I don't know... " said one of the others. "No-one died last night. Isn't that how it goes? The baddies kill someone and then we get all indignant about it?"
hm.gif "Okay. Well, I suggest we forgo this lynch until we know a little more about who our friends and enemies are," Prof said, with Nana agreeing.
To cut a long story short, after Prof. T went back to his dorm, he realised someone had put a plastic spider in his bed and traced it back to Aaryan. So the truce was off and after the gossip mill got going, the group decided to lynch Aaryan. They all bit their lips and covered their eyes in a dramatic "leaning-backwards,-back-of-the-wrist-to-the-forehead" manner; too scared to take off his mask and identify him.
Fat Tony stepped up. "Me wantz Airy's mask!1!!11!" yes.gif XP.gif BOO.gif and he ripped it off, unceremoniously.
scared.gif ohmy.gif "Oh My Gosh! It's SparrowHawk!" His team mates groaned: "we are screwed now sad.gif " and his opposition cheered " woohoo.gif They are screwed now yes.gif ". This was the most polarizing result to come out of an adventure playground camp and from this moment, the players were in it for blood! mad.gif
As Raphael made his way through the dimly lit corridor, he heard footsteps around the corner. Peering through the gaps in the wooden slats that made up the wall, he saw Hidden Z creeping along the parallel walk-space. :boo: He jumped out and shot Hidden Z with his paintball gun. Hidden Z tried to fight back but his gun jammed. Unknown to him, earlier that day, Michaelangelo had tampered with Hidden Z's paintball gun in order to block him from winning the tournament. Hidden Z collapsed, and as the red paint spread, Raphael realised it was blood. Suddenly he realised his paintball gun had been replaced with a much smaller hand gun. wtf.gif How did I not notice that until now? he thought. "Whatever..." he thought shrug.gif and he slid off into the night.
Elsewhere, Bubbles was coloring in a unicorn in her book. Fat Tony was sitting alongside, drawing a picture. " hm.gif Yellow would look good on this part", he thought, and reached for the yellow pencil in front of Bubbles. "NO!" yelled Bubbles. "That's MY lellow pencil! You don't need lellow, use bwoo pencil instead dontcare.gif " "But I don't want bwoo, I want lellow!" Fat Tony replied and then wtf.gif 'd at himself for mirroring Bubbles' baby language. Just then, Buttercup jumped out and whacked FatTony over the head... a little too hard. As blood poured out his nose, ears and eyes, the sisters realised he was dead.
Donatello and Nicolas Cage were looking for mischief. They decided the best way to get a laugh was to push Shadow and Zweefer into the quicksand. And so Nicolas Cage pushed Shadow and Donatello pushed Zweefer. Those two wouldn't be escaping anytime soon.
Robert De Niro was lying down. He had a headache. Suddenly, he sat up and grabbed his garotte from the top drawer of the night stand. "I'm going to kill Nana and I don't need a reason." And so he did. (In respect to Nana I am leaving out the gory details.)
Professor was missing his chemistry lab. In fact. he was in withdrawals as he was used to the dizzying effect of the chemical fumes. He stumbled inside, out of the cloying fresh air. As he got safely inside, he slammed the door shut and leaned against it. Unfortunately, Thalia was trying to enter and was summarily knocked out. It was thought she only had a concussion but she died later that night.
In another place, but a similar time, hooded people were hunched in a circle around a table. As they chanted unintelligible mantras, the hazy forms of Aaryan and Fat Tony appeared in the air, slowly lowering down to the ground as they became more clear. As their bodies fully formed, they ran out the door, searching for revenge on their attackers.
Buttercup FID Killed Fat Tony Professor RID Killed Thalia Raphael FID Killed Hidden Z Donatello trapped Zweefer Michaelangelo blocked Hidden Z Robert De Niro FID Killed Nana Nicolas Cage trapped Shadow Aaryan and Fat Tony were resurrected.
The players were walking through the woods when they saw a box lying on the ground. One of them stepped up and lifted the lid:
Night posts are overrated. Nicolas Cage trapped Zweefer Donatello trapped SparrowHawk(Dante) Michaelangelo blocked Aaryan Nana7 trapped Shad
MiKi and Thalia were resurrected
As I did the results, I realised one team had them all correct.
Congratulations to the Usual Suspects! (I suspected they would win, as usual.)
Commiserations to the other teams, especially the Half-shell Heroes who were left behind by their allies!
Sidenote: The description for the role Akriti was originally written for Vine, but I didn't know if she would want to be put in the spotlight so I changed the name. As you can see, the description is accurate. Vine did a fantastic job of sorting out the Role IDs.
I will post my comments, commendations and the choice of MVP tomorrow. This is going to be a very, very difficult choice.
