Host Wars Mafia was a game designed and hosted by Hirkala based on original design.
It began on June 26, 2011, host became MIA during Night 5 (after July 9th, 2011), and game was officially stopped July 26, 2011.
No results were officially published of the last actions (including RID guesses of the hosts in the last night) so the outcome is impossibe to determine, yet the threads have been published making any continuation of the game impossible. Allegedly, at least team 1 and team 4 had submitted correct RIDs guesses during Night 5, yet only team 4 had achieved plurality during Day 4 (and it is unknown if this plurality would still have been achieved at the end of Night 5).
Game Mechanics Edit
There are 4 Factions: 1,2,3,4. Each faction has a host and 4 players.
- Block > Redirect > RID Kill > Spy
- The Day phase will have Sequence Voting. The votes necessary for passing a sequence are (N/2)+1 where N=total number of players. The format for a sequence will be Spy Yuli [Hirkala]: (Pro-vote 1, Pro-vote 2[Anti-vote 1])
- Kill - Kills a player, but does not reveal their role.
- Lynch - Kills a player and reveals their role.
- Spy - Spies a player and learns their faction.
- Courier - Can send and return one message to one player. (CC me)
- Block - The target is blocked the following night.
- Reveal - Initiator's faction is revealed to the target.
- Veto - A victim initiated sequence that negates a sequence against him.
- Hosts (1,2,3,4)
- BTSC; Completely invincible;
- Each night, will write 1/4 of the night post and may change (add or subtract) one thing.
- WinCon: Must submit their entire faction and one other complete faction to win (correct roles must be given.). (Added during Day 1): In addition, their faction must have more members than any other faction (but not necessarily more than all factions together i.e. plurality)
- In BTSC, the 4 Hosts may choose one player to spy on. Result will be published in BTSC thread.
- Hosts will be intermixed with the other players, unknown to all. During signups, each player must send a PM informing whether or not they would like to be a Host. 4 Hosts will be randomly selected from those and the rest will be randomized amongst the player roles.
- Each night, each player (A-D) may submit 4 names and will be told (yes or no) if their Host is on the list.
- A (1,2,3,4) - Each night, the A's can redirect one player to another target.
- B (1,2,3,4) - Each night, the B's can block one player from acting.
- C (1,2,3,4) - Each night, the C's can spy one player and learn their role. Spies will be shown in the night post, but the target will not.
- D (1,2,3,4) - Each night, the D's may attempt to RID Kill one player.
Host's Summary Edit
Game Idea and Expectations Edit
Here on MM, we have a lot of games. And a lot of games means a lot of players. But, what we also have are hosts. Not as many, but they are there... Watching your every move. Waiting for your actions. Laughing behind the scenes. Ridiculing you for a blunder. Telling their friends about how dumb you are! (Note: I am not including myself in this list of Hosts. I am always respectful and compassionate toward each and every player. )
But, now... The Hosts are on the spot. The Hosts are the ones who will win or lose the game! The Hosts must face off in............. HOST WARS!!!
Winning Faction Edit
Day and Night Posts Edit
|Night 1: The War Begins||!|
A2 was on the prowl. Jealous of his older, more steak sauce-like brother, he wanted to prove his worth. He didn't like being called 2A--it sounded too apartment-esque. He was noble. He was mean. He redirected Maurice. And then went home.
Host 4 decided to play it safe. He gathered intel and stalked the streets. He ended up spying the syrupy, walnut-covered Maurice. He patted A2 on the back as he passed. They even went out for beers later. Host 4 bought the first round.
4A was an apartment and proud of it. He loved the 4th floor. It's where the crazies went. So crazy was A4 that he decided to invite Yuli over for dinner. He slipped a roofie in Yuli's drink and told him to go out and find a new target. Yuli was too drunk to not listen.
C1 also rebelled against his apartment name. He was the youngest brother of a powerful explosive. Powerful, indeed. C1 couldn't destroy, however. C1 could see one. As in spy. He spied. I don't know who he spied and neither do you. Unless you're C1.
Akriti was walking down the street. She suddenly was chased by a bee. Then another!! And another!! Not quite a swarm, but before she knew it 3B and chased her into a pole, rendering her useless for the night.
3C made her way up the telephone pole. She noticed someone down the street. But that wasn't her target. She tapped into the telephone wires. She heard all that she needed to hear for the night.
4C remembered something he had to do. He set some tire tacks on the street behind Yuli's car. Then he placed a banana in his exhaust pipe. If Yuli was doing anything tonight, it would be by foot.
2C hoped that being covered in sewage would be worth it. He popped his head out from the manhole and peaked into the alley. He saw who he was looking for. Yeah, it was worth it.
Yet Another Host!!!
Phaze had a great time that night. But the next morning, he woke up in the hospital with a broken jaw. Turns out, stepping on big 4B’s toes before exiting the bar was not such a great idea to end the night.
2D saw Aura in the restaurant and kept staring at her for a while, unable to shake off an eerie feeling. He followed her out on the street, but quickly turned around when he saw the ring.
The Last Host!!!
C4. That’s right, C4, not 4C. C4 had an explosive temper. Get it? But, he also had self control. So, keeping his temper in check, he simply watched and saw what he wanted to see.
1D got the point of his mission. He was to eliminate the other teams so that his could win. He found Fox, who had pawsed, I mean paused in the middle of the street for some reason. 1D made it a point to stay in the shadows as he crept up on her. Suddenly, she unpawsed, UNPAUSED, CRAP! And he realized that he, ironically, had missed the point.
|Day 1: A Quick Halt|
|The day progressed quickly, a multitude of sequences being started. But, the support was desperately lacking. At the end of the day, only 3 spies and a courier had passed. The warriors looked to the coming night...|
|Night 2: First Blood|
Auramyna went out that night, trying to get rid of the annoying feeling that someone was stalking her. Several calls had freaked her out at the beginning of the night. No voice, just a muffled breathing at the other end. Turns out 1D was indeed trying to get RID of her. And he succeeded.
4A was out too, not too far from his target, always a step behind. He tipped a boy to deliver a note to Vineetrika and watched her as she read it. He had pondered the content of that note all day long, trying to find the perfect balance. And apparently he had found it, as Vineetrika smiled and changed direction.
I spy a colour and it is....brown! C3 spied something else. Three things. But only one person. The other two were paintings or something not related to Host Wars.
C1 was the same, but he only saw one (as we established yesterday). Garbage. All of it garbage. What?
4D went for Phaze, with no real results. Perhaps 4D was drunk. Perhaps 4D had one too many 4Ds.
2D was on target, though, and went right for Aura's throat. She didn't stand a chance. (Welcome to the bullseye club, Aura!)
Yet Another Host!!!
2D was in the middles of something (an R and a 2 to be exact) when he saw araver walking by. "I know that no good..." he said to himself. he pulled out his Bowie knife and followed araver. He took a shortcut and got ahead of araver's path. He climbed a tree, hoping to drop in on him. When araver approached, 2D noticed the person he thought araver was across the street. Startled, he fell from the tree.
4B closed in on the secret room. There was a window, from which he could see what the Hosts were up to. He grabbed a couple of boxes, so that he could position himself to see through the window. "What are you doing?" asked Akriti. Without answering 4B bopped her with a sockful of pennies, knocjing her out. The ruckus must have got the hosts attention because 4B heard the door opening. He made a run for it.
4D awoke from his slumber. He'd had a vision in his sleep. He ran over to Aura's building. He saw her apartment number listed on the mailboxes. It was her! He ran up the stairs and knocked down her door. He was too late...
1A wanted something done and he wanted it done tonight. Who would be foolish enough to do as he asked? He saw maurice sitting on a stoop, eating ice cream from the tub. He dropped off another tub with a note. maurice looked at the tub, looked at the note, looked at the tub again and nooded, never looking up at 1A.
The Final Host!!!
Darth Nox sat pondering life. As he stared off into the distance 2B approached. Or was it not 2B? Nox was confused. As he sat there thinking hard about whether it was 2B or not 2B he forgot to do anything else for the night.
3A set a course for Aaryan intent on changing his mind. He intercepted his target and exchanged some harsh words. After several minutes of heated argument Aaryan changed his target.
|Night 3: More Indians Down!|
4B was out with his list today. He had a couple more names to cross off and was just about to decide who was next, when he stumbled upon GM. Well that's just plain dumb luck, he said to himself and threw GM to the back of the nearest alley. Just as he was about to cross GM from the list, the pencil broke. Bad omen.
1D awoke from his slumber. Those damned messages he kept receiving made his mind race. Haunted his dreams. No more. He packed his gear and went out to the coordinates he had received in his mailbox. As he pondered how to get through the door without alerting the neighbors, a muffled police siren sound reached him. He ducked just in time to see Akriti come down the stairs. He sighed and blessed his karma. Killing is fine, but B&E without a reason, that simply won't do.
1C ran along happily in the street, without a care, staring at the neon lights as he passed them by. A sound to the right and he spotted a strange figure going through garbage cans. That made 1C suspicious so he snooped around some more. Till he found what he was looking for. Cause that's what snooping is about. Enough said.
1B knocked on the door of apartment 3A. Lionheart opened the door and was summarily dragged into the public toilets 2 A terrible fate. "This B 4 teaching you a lesson." And with that, 1B dragged Lionheart into stall no. 1B and plunged his head into the toilet, blocking him for the remainder of the night.
4C went out for a night stroll. He had his fake-mo on and his baggy trench coat; all the things he needed to be cleverly disguised. He spied his target and continued on home.
It was a full moon as 3D climbed the fire escape to the roof of the A1 Acme building. He set up his sniper rifle on his B2 grade tripod and looked through the sight. Just then, Shadow7 walked across infront of the window of apartment 4C. "Ping." One shot and she was dead. Bye bye birdie ￼
3A didn't like the way Araver was looking. No scratch that he didn't like who Araver was looking AT. He decided to change his mind. After much discussion, a broken baseball bat and four fingernails later Araver had a new target for the night.
2D was on a mission. A mission to eliminate the competition. He had his sights set on phaze with an idea in his mind. As he approached he realized however that he was wrong. So wrong. But it had felt so right.
4D's mission was similar, and he chose to accept it. He followed GMaster through the night, intent on removing him from the picture. As he crept though the hallway he saw a picture on the wall and took it down. There was GMaster, just as he had suspected. He entered GMaster's room and drew a knife, sliding it swiftly across his throat. When he had finished he dropped the picture on his body. GMaster's face had been cut out.
1B found his target sitting at a table at Starbuck's. Brandon looked perplexed. He wrote it over and over again. In seven different languages even. He tried it in cursive, he tried it in print. He tried braille. But no matter how hard he tried not to, Brandon was always able to spell "Honest" without Bb. 1B just watched to make sure, but yeah Brandon was just stubborn enough to keep trying. Which he did, all night.
2B wondered why it was his curse to be shaped like a cylinder. That is how he got the nickname "Tubey" as a kid. Thinking back made him angry. He found his tormenter from his youth at the waterpark and let her have it. "Oh yeah", he told her when he found her "Well you're Fox-y" "Why thanks," replied Fox while she batted her eyelashes. This just made 2B even angrier. He picked up Fox and took her to the lazy river. He shoved her into a stack of four inner tubes and sent her floating away. "Who's 'tubey' now?" he asked, as she bobbed away, unable to complete her task.
3B wandered down the wrong hallway. He found araver, however. "Ahh, 3B", welcomed araver. "So you are not 2B, huh?" 3B shook his head, expressing a lack of understanding. "Ah let me explain", began araver. 3B smiled to himself. He knew about Hamlet, but he'd make sure araver would spend the evening explaining rather than doing what he had intended to do.
3C opened the package. His latest gizmo had finally arrived. He sent out the RC car with the camera attached on its maiden expedition. After looking up a couple of girls' skirts, 3C had a grand idea. The car could also be used to spy on that one person he was wondering about. He recharged his car and sent it out again.
|Night 4: Beginning of the End|
3C spied with his little eye, someone beginning with... Hey, that's cheating!
Akriti set out with all the equipment she needed to carry out her plan. As she passed a side street, a hook came out and grabbed her around the neck, pulling her into the dark recesses. Standing in the alleyway were a gang of hoodlums headed by none other than 2D. They beat her into a bloody pulp and left her dead on the pavement.
2C was out walking their dog. "Ooh, what a nice full moon", they thought. They had really hoped to find their host but failing that, they decided to spy someone else instead. They saw the light on at their target's house and after peering through the window with good results, they carried on home.
Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine. I managed to sneak upstairs. Yeah, I missed her but those days were behind me. I was hosting nowadays. Life was just too complicated to keep her in my life. She deserved better. I had decided long ago that I would no longer be a hindrance in her life. I watched her from the two-way mirror. She walked up to the bar and I could see her asking the bartender for me. He just shrugged his shoulders. She dropped hers, ordered a shot of whiskey, took a look around and walked out. The lone tear meandered down my cheek. I turned to 4C and gave him the sign. He followed her and got all of the needed details. I'm a reasonable man, but I do have a soft spot. Maybe one day this whole Host Wars will be over, and we can continue what we once started. Maybe.
I stood there and allowed that tear to soak into my cheek, slowly making its way down to my chin. Once it dropped off I knew I needed to finish taking care of one last thing. My driver took me to the airport. I met up with 4B who was holding his target. The target came running up to me. "Host! He's saying I've got to get on this plane. But I have things to do, we have unfinished business you and I." "Now, you've got to listen to me! You have any idea what you'd have to look forward to if you stayed here? Nine chances out of ten, you'll wind up RID Killed! Isn't that true, 4B?" I tried using reason. "You're only saying this to make me go", was the reply. "I'm saying it because it's true. Inside of us, we both know you belong with Victor. You're part of his work, the thing that keeps him going. If that plane leaves the ground and you're not with him, you'll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life." "But what about us?" I shook my head. "We'll always have Paris. We didn't have, we, we lost it until you came to MafiaManiac. We got it back last night." "When I said I would never leave you." I was getting good at holding back tears. "And you never will. But I've got a job to do, too. Where I'm going, you can't follow. What I've got to do, you can't be any part of. Phaze, I'm no good at being noble, but it doesn't take much to see that the problems of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you'll understand that." Phaze lowered his head and began to cry. In my most comforting voice, "Now, now..." I gently placed my hand under his chin and raised it so our eyes met. "Here's looking at you kid. " Then 4B hit Phaze upside the head and threw him into my private jet.
2B was not amused. He searched for someone who was and found Phaze. Well, great minds think alike and unlike minds think ... alike. Phaze was phazed for not thinking alike. Or was he?
4A was amused but confused. So he thought he'd share that state of mind with others. Walking down the street he met Glyc who was less confused, so 4A took it upon himself to make him more. Confused that is. Couple of beers later, Glyc became less and less sure of the true meaning of life and other stuff not worth mentioning. But, according to 4A, there was a path to enlightment just around the corner. Satisfied, 4A called him a cab and searched for more recruits to the cause.
1D was just confused. He looked for Phaze and found him in a daze. Great timing, don't you think? Nah. See, you missed a hint, 1D *was* indeed confused
4D looked around. He saw Akriti and he wanted death. He achieved his desires.
3C spied something. Only he knew what it was.
