Mafia II was a game designed and hosted by Unreality.
It began on June 29th, 2008 and ended in a Goodie win in D3 (July 6th, 2008).
12 players: 3 Mafiosos, 1 Grim Reaper, 8 Innocents.
Standard Mafia rules with night actions and day lynches.
Mafia - win by killing all the Innocents and the Grim Reaper. Every night they choose one person to bump off via PMs (this is the only time PMing is allowed in the game!!!). Also, at the beginning of the game, the Mafia is informed of who the Bomb is. Also, any night, but not two nights in a row, the Mafia can opt to "rough up" someone, in which two implications are given:
- do not continue your line of accusations, or we will kill you
- do not reveal that you were roughed up, or we will kill you
Roughing up is an option for the Mafia, and can have outcomes that aren't always good for the Mafia- so only do this if you've thought about it and want to.
- Grim Reaper - wins by killing the Vigilante (if this happens early enough, we will play for "second place"). The Grim Reaper kills every even-numbered night
Innocents - win by killing the Mafia and the Grim Reaper. During the day, a lynching vote occurs just like in Mafia 1, and the condemned person gets publicly executed and their role revealed. Every Innocent has a special role:
- Doctor- save someone every night by PMing me. If this person is targeted for death by the Mafia and/or Grim Reaper, the person will be saved by the Doctor and live. The Doctor cannot save himself/herself, nor can the Doctor save the same person two times in a row
- Vigilante- knows who the Defender is. The Vigilante kills for the Innocents every odd-numbered night, except for the 1st night. Can choose not to kill
- Defender- knows who the Vigilante is. While the Defender is alive, the Vigilante cannot die, and gets out of every death situation with badass awesomeness
- Inspector- PMed, by me, one Mafia identity at the beginning of every odd-numbered day (1st, 3rd and 5th for the three Mafiosos)
- Sage- can PM me anytime to get the list of the people the Doctor has been saving. Also, the Sage can choose to PM me every even-numbered day to see how many Mafiosos are alive
- Spy- can spy on anyone ever even-numbered day. They PM me who they want to spy on, and I reply, revealing that person's role
- Bomb- knows who the Inspector is. When (if) the Bomb dies, there is a half chance that they will take their killer down with them. If their killer is the Mafia, a random Mafioso will be killed- however the Mafia is informed at the beginning of the game who the Bomb is. If the Bomb's killer is the Grim Reaper, the Grim Reaper would blow up. If the Bomb is lynched, the Innocent who was most outspoken for the lynching (chosen by me) is blown up. If I can't decide, I pick randomly from the Innocents that voted for the Bomb
- Illusionist- every even-numbered night (the same night that the Grim Reaper kills), the Illusionist can make illusionary copies of one person to protect them ONLY from the Grim Reaper (the Mafia ain't fooled). The Illusionist cannot protect themself, nor can they protect the same person twice in a row. When (if) the Grim Reaper dies, the Illusionist's role may be obselete- or it may morph into something else altogether. If the Grim Reaper had died before the Illusionist, the role would've morphed into another role I made called the Sphinx
- Sphinx- appears normal by ay, but every odd-numbered night, they can protect one person (not themself and not the same person 2x in a row). If someone tries to kill the protected person, the would-be killer gets asked a riddle, to which they get one chance to guess correctly, OR they can back down and withdraw if they think the riddle is too hard (because of this, I make up the riddle, not the Sphinx). If they do accept the riddle, however, and guess correctly, the Sphinx steps aside and allows the killing. If they guess incorrectly, the Sphinx kills the killers. ALL of the killers. ie, the entire Mafia would be slaughtered (or if were the Grim Reaper or Vigilante, just the one person). That's why there's the option of backing down from the kill, lol. If someone tries to kill the Sphinx at night while the Sphinx is off protecting someone, the killer searches all night in vain. However, if someone tries to kill the Sphinx on an even-numbered night, the Sphinx can be killed normally, as she is not protecting anyone and is at her house.
- Itachi - Sage

Day and Night Posts
|"Tell us the story of Awesomeville again, grandma!" the little grandkids shrieked excitedly. At the sign of her reluctant face, they pleaded even more. "Pleeeeease, grandma! All those villains and spies and mafiosos!"
The grandma's eyes twinkled as she remembered her days as a boat hijacker in the canyon river behind the now-peaceful desert town of Tumbleweed, Zazarazalaf. "Alright, kids," she gave in, smiling. "But go to bed straight after the story."
The kids huddled excitedly around the old lady, eager to hear the story again.
"Awesomeville was a relatively normal, suburban town to the north of here, but still in the Zazarazalaf region," the grandma started. "North of the desert. In fact, the weather was always good in Awesomeville, leading to its growth. Not like Tumbleweed, where the same families have lived for generations. No, kids, Awesomeville had a diverse population, and was located on a major trade route to the capital city of Denbrain. Due to the money that flowed through Awesomeville, the Mafia soon set up a small cell of operations within the town. However, they were at first unaware that a mysterious Grim Reaper had already taken up residence in Awesomeville, and eager to test out his scythe. Once the Innocents of Awesomeville discovered they were being preyed on at night, they become an angry mob, lynching one person every day."
The grandchildrens' eyes twinkled as they imagined Mafiosos and Grim Reapers burning at the stake and being hanged and shot and drowned and and...
"Yes, their war against the baddies was short-lasted, though," the grandma said sadly, though she was not sad at all. She herself was a terrorist agent from the neighboring country of Quarky. "Due to a mistake by the Host God known only as Unreality due to his unreal nature in our real world, the Mafia was too strong, and although the Grim Reaper was burned at the stake quite early in the war, the Mafia took control of Awesomeville, killing the Innocents that stood in their way and setting it up as the center of the Mafia in our good country of Content Phoenix. Now, the sultan of Content Phoenix, a man named Phoenix, was not happy with the Mafia, and sent the Fiery Armies to root out Unawesomeville and make it Awesome again."
"Yay!" the kids screamed in delight as the grandma told the tale of how the Mafiosos were slaughtered and their operation thrown out of the town.
"Oh, that's not all," the grandma chuckled, with the hint of a cold smile. "Do you really think the Grim Reaper stays dead for long? No, he was back in Awesomeville, living like a peaceful citizen for a few years after the rebuilding. In fact, I think he was acting mayor for a couple months. Good guy, Reapy. But his bloodlust and connection to mysterious nighttime deaths could not be quelled for long. Soon he would be back to prey on Awesomeville."
The kids stared in horror.
"But that's not all," the grandma continued. "The Mafia, rankled at Sultan Phoenix's hasty cleanup of Awesomeville in the name of Unreality, started rebuilding their cell within Awesomeville, claiming to the Host God that the game would be fairer this time. Of course, Unreality knew this. He had optimized the rules of the game, making it better and awesomer than Mafia I."
"It's a game, grandma?" the kids asked confusedly.
"Never mind," the grandma said hastily, just as confused as her grandkids. Why had she said those strange words about a 'game'? This was no game! "Anyway," she continued. "My point is, the Mafia was back. And the Grim Reaper was back to old ways, too. Another hard time was coming for the sleepy town of Awesomeville, kids. But the Innocents were more prepared this time, thanks to the sultan. They were ready to fight back."
And so begins Mafia II.
|A Wild Evening|
|The wind howled through the trees of Awesomeville and swept through the streets like an invisible flood, leaving all the civilians of Awesomeville waiting in their houses as the gales roared on. Then came the rain, at first pattering and quiet, then intense and stormy as foggy grey sheets of rain lanced from the sky, pounding the pavement and drumming on rooftops. Lightning crackled and blazed and sparked outside, emitting bright flashes that illuminated the streets, and thunder boomed and rumbled, shaking the very foundations of the town.
However, the night was still active, despite the tempest raging outside...
The Mafiosos were meeting to discuss their first victim, and the Doctor was preparing his/her medical kit, ready to lurk outside someone's house to save them if necessary.
|N1: The Blue Octane|
|"DANGER" urged a sign taped onto the blue octane tank. "CONTENTS UNDER PRESSURE. NO SMOKING. HIGHLY FLAMMABLE"
Dnae was worried about his octane tank as a particularly close bolt of lightning seared across the sky. What if the lightning hit the octane tank???
He rushed outside, running through the hissing rain and booming thunder. Wind whipped his hair into a cyclone and the trees waved back in forth as if their roots were caught in a blender.
Finally he arrived at the tall blue octane tank, and wondered what to do with it.
The Mafia had already decided.
A sniper's bullet pierced the tank, and Dnae had a yoctosecond (a very small unit of time) to realize what happened before the tank exploded into a massive fireball, blasting outward with force that paralleled the mighty storm that continued to rage on, even after Dnae's yard was turned into a smoking crater, his body nowhere to be found, his house in ruins, flickering with flames that hissed as the rain pounded them relentlessly.
Across town, the Doctor (waiting by a quiet house) turned in confusion. What was that noise?
|D1: To The Sharks!|
"A witch!" yelled GC, shouting and waving a pitchfork.
"She's a wiiiiiiitch!" agreed Itachi, brandishing a closed fist. "Send her to the shaaaaaarks!"
"The shaaaaaaaaarks!" hollered Kingofpain. "To the sharks!!!!"
"No, wait, please, I just moved into Awesomeville-" Puzzlegirl started.
"That doesn't mean you're not a Mafioso," Kingofpain said accusingly. "They could've moved you in recently!"
"No, no, you've got it all wr-"
"To the sharks!!!!" shouted GC, yelling and chanting. The crowd pushed the Awesomeville citizen closer and closer to the giant Shark Tank in the brand new Awesomeville Aquarium, which the Sultan Phoenix had installed when he had the town repaired.
The crowd was on the roof of the Aquarium, pushing the victim closer to the top of the open Shark Tank. The hammerhead sharks inside started swimming faster and faster in hungry circles, their long eyes trained on the meaty subject about to be pushed in.
"Wait!" Puzzlegirl yelped, as GC started to push her in with the pitchfork. "I'm the Illusionist!"
Kingofpain laughed. "It's a trick, silly."
"No, no, I can show you my powers," Puzzlegirl explained, summoning within her the ability of illusification. As she started to make a fake body double of herself, Itachi cried "A witch!" and the crowd surged forward, pushing both of the Puzzlegirls into the Shark Tank, just in case.
Within seconds she was gobbled up. Fish food. Even the bloody water was quickly siphoned by the rapacious hammerheads.
"Wow," mumbled Frost, after the excitement was over. "We need to feed those sharks more often."
Somewhere in the crowd of Awesomeville citizens, the Grim Reaper was snickering. With the Illusionist dead, the Grim Reaper would have an easier path to victory.
The Innocents of Awesomeville hurried home, as night was falling on the town, and nobody wanted to be out and about with the Mafia and the Grim Reaper prowling around. Of course, those people pretended to be hurrying home too, but the Mafia were secretly gathering to plan who they would bump off next, and the Grim Reaper was heading down into the dungeon to sharpen his/her scythe. At another house in Awesomeville, the Doctor was gathering his/her medical kit, hoping that he/she would be able to save an unlucky Awesomevillager tonight.
|N2: Open Warfare|
The pond known as Grim Pond was still tonight, the moonlight reflecting off its peaceful waters. The pond was surrounded by tall reeds that shaded it from the rest of Awesomeville.
A few people were out by the pond, dipping their legs in the cool water, taking advantage of the calm night.
A stupid thing to do, with the Grim Reaper lurking about.
Grey Cells, standing alone at the edge of the pond, spun around as the moon glinted off of a curved blade behind him.
"So you're the Grim Reaper?" he sputtered, recognizing the face under the dark hood.
"Yes," the Grim Reaper hissed, and scythed down the unfortunate victim, the bloody body splashing into the pond.
A Few Minutes Later
The dew-tipped reeds around Grim Pond rustled as a dark-clad Mafia assassin slipped through them, clutching a syringe. The assassin waited at the verge of the reeds until a dark form, silhouetted against the moonlight, walked past.
The assassin lunged from his hiding place, stabbing the syringe deep into Scott's neck. By the time he fell, coughing and choking and kicking, into Grim Pond, the assassin had disappeared among the reeds.
The Doctor waited by a house- once again, a quiet house. But nearby, he/she heard sounds of someone being beat up, but unfortunately he/she couldn't place the location of the noise, and had no way of helping. Distressed, the Doctor returned to his/her house, wondering who had been offed during the night.
|D2: The Web of Lies|
It was the pinnacle of the second day in Awesomeville, and a web of lies had been spread over the town, snaring the careless and confusing everyone. The mass of deceit has settled on one victim, an almost unanimous lynching decision: Brandonb.
"You'll all die!" he shouted hoarsely as he was dragged to the town square. "The Innocents are going down! Mafia to victory!!!"
"Put him to death!" the townies chanted. "Yeah! Yeah!"
Brandonb snarled as he was hoisted up to a noose in the middle of the square.
"Any last words?" Pieman asked.
"We know who the Doctor is!" Brandonb shouted. "Pw0nzd is gonna die tonight! He's the Doctor!!!"
"Hang him already," Itachi said, rolling his eyes.
"YEAH!" roared the civilians of Awesomeville.
"Death to the Innocents!" Brandonb shouted, grabbing the noose and wrapping it around the executioner's neck, kicking the support, snapping the poor man's neck. People screamed as Brandonb drew the guy's knife and waved it around. "Come on," he hissed. "Who wants to take me?"
"You're a liar!" Frost retorted, his right hand trying to discreetly remove the Penguin Pistol he kept in his back pocket. "I'm gonna kill you myself!"
"Hahahahahahahahaha!" cackled Brandonb. "Death to the Innocents!" He jumped at Frost, bringing the knife toward his enemy's neck, but Frost leapt out of the way and shot Brandonb five times in the back of the head before the Mafioso even hit the ground from his jump.
Ignoring the blood that splattered onto his clothes, Frost tucked away the pistol and turned to the shocked crowd.
"It's gonna be a real storm tonight," Itachi observed.
"It is," Slick agreed. "I saw it with my ESP."
The citizens of Awesomeville were dispersing now, the executioner cut down (somehow the poor bloke had survived his neck breaking) and led to the Awespital. The third night was arriving, and with that, danger and intrigue. The Mafia, if still around, would be striking out for a vengeful kill- or a carefully calculated one. In addition, the Vigilante's first kill (if the Vigilante is still alive) would hopefully help out the deceit-confused Innocents. Of course, the Vigilante could choose not to kill if he or she pleased.
Entering his house, pw0nzd was shaking a little. Brandonb had specifically called him out at the lynching, claiming he was the Doctor.
|N3: Last Girl Standing|
The Dead of Night
The Doctor sighed- once again, the house he was waiting outside was quiet and sleepy. He should've known. Muttering, the Doctor set out to return to the Awespital and get a good night's sleep.
A Few Minutes Later
Akaslickster grumbled at the incessant knocking on the door. When would it stop? Would it ever stop?
This was the third night of the Mafia rampage in Awesomeville, and he felt a tad nervous about opening the door. But if he didn't, he could never fall asleep! Grudgingly, he headed over the door, unaware of the shadowy form rising up from behind his couch.
As he opened the door, he came face to face the Vigilante.
"Hola, Slick," the Vigilante said, and shot him dead, smoke curling from the end of the pistol.
The shadowy figure behind the couch quickly left the house, afraid of the Vigilante.
Half an Hour Later, Across Town
The same shadowy figure found himself inside a different house, holding a flamethrower. He had been the same Mafioso that had sniped Dnae's blue octane tank, and he liked fire. A lot.
"Vigilante, is that you?" Nayana called, coming down the stairs. She was the last girl standing.
Not for long.
"You know who the Vigilante is?" the Mafioso asked. "Tell me, or die!"
"Of course I know who the Vigilante is, I'm his Defender," she said.
The Mafioso clicked back a safety catch. "Tell me now, or roast."
"My a$$," she quipped, and ran for her rifle, but she was too late. The Mafioso cackled as he turned the house into a giant fireball, tossing a few firecrackers and grenades behind him as he leapt out of a window into the safety of a bush.
Then, a few minutes later, when he was sure that Nayana was dead, he ran into the street, screaming "Fire! Fire! Fire!" Soon the Awesomeville Fire Fighters were on the scene, spraying the burning house with pressurized water and jets of carbon dioxide foam.
In no time, all of Awesomeville- or at least the important people- were on the scene, angry when they learned of Nayana's death. They wanted to lynch someone RIGHT NOW, even though it was very early in the morning. The sun was barely poking above the horizon, shedding its fresh light on the sleepy town- which wasn't so sleepy anymore.
|D3: A Firelit Lynching|
The fiery wreck of Nayana's house illuminated the semi-circle of Awesomeville citizens. They knew there was still a baddie among them, and they wanted him dead.
They had chosen King of Pain.
"Cmon guys," he pleaded. "Frost is lying to you!"
"I'm the Sage," Itachi replied. "And that makes me wise- I say you're a Mafioso. Burn in the fire you started!"
"Yeah!" the others yelled. "Burn in the fire that you started, KOP!"
"Wait, guys," King of Pain said desperately. "I played a good game, didn't I? I distanced myself with Brandonb after realizing he was going to be lynched. I shifted the focus off of myself. I brought the downfall of other Innocents..."
"You did play a good game," Pw0nzd acknowledged. "But that ends now."
"Sorry I'm late, guys," Pieman said, just arriving at the scene. "Who are we lynching?"
"King of Pain," Frost explained. "The last Mafioso left in Awesomeville. Burn in the fire you started!"
"Wait, wait," King of Pain snarled, as the crowd of Innocents advanced on him slowly, pushing him closer to the hungry flames behind him. They were busy consuming Nayana's house, but they wouldn't mind it if King of Pain fell in as an entree.
KOP was starting to get angry now. Of course he was a Mafioso! He had tricked them from the beginning, playing an excellent game of deceit. And they repaid his devious lying and night-killings by lynching him?
"One day, the Mafia will rule this town like it did in the past!" he roared, stumbling a little backwards. The heat from the sweltering fire behind him rolled against his back in waves. "One day," he repeated. "One day, you'll be sorry. Sorry for lynching Brandonb! Sorry for lynching me!"
"Who was the other Mafioso?" someone called out, the leader of the Awesomeville Fire Department, though everyone else already knew.
"Grey Cells, silly," they said.
KOP nodded, his eyes wide and calculating. "Yes, my friends, it was me, Brandonb- and Grey Cells. It's unfortunate he was scythed down into Grim Pond, or we may still be infiltrating you to this day!"
"Nonsense!" cried Frost. "I'm the Vigilante!"
KOP laughed. "So what? I just roasted your pretty Defender, didn't I? You aren't invincible! You may have shot Brandonb five times in the back of the head with your Penguin Pistol, but you can still die like the rest of us."
"What about me?" Pw0nzd asked. "I'm the Doctor."
"And I'm the Sage," said Itachi, and everyone chuckled. That wasn't much of a disputed fact anymore.
Even KOP chuckled, then caught himself. "Do you think I'm gonna let myself be pushed into a giant fire? I don't think so!"
"Ohhhh," said Pieman. "Really? You want to die like Brandonb?"
"Well, he was agreed to be the Most Bada$$ Mafioso," KOP admitted. "And his way was better than being hanged.... but I'm not going to die at your hands! No, I'm getting out of this town and heading to Oasis! That's where the action is! The Glorious Mafia has installed a new crime ring inside Oasis... I've also heard that there are Quarky Spies infiltrating Oasis too..."
"I'm curious about people's roles," Pw0nzd said. "I'm the Doctor... who was the Inspector?"
"Dnae," Pieman responded, nodding intelligently.
"Ah, too bad," muttered Frost. "He was the first to die- he could've helped us a lot."
"We didn't need help," Itachi pointed out. "Though maybe more of us would still be alive today."
Among their discussion, nobody noticed KOP slowly slinking away to his left.
"And Puzzlegirl was the Illusionist of course, and Nayana was the Defender," Frost was saying.
The firelight glinted in KOP's eyes as he spotted his exit route, down the street and out of town. He would hide in the massive chain grocery store until everyone had stopped looking, living off of food, then he would head to Oasis to serve the Mafia once more.
"I think we got it down," Itachi was concluding. "But what about the Spy? Was that Scott?"
"I think so," said Frost thoughtfully, scratching his chin.
"Muhahahahahahahahahaaaaa!" came a malicious laugh from down the street. The Grim Reaper was whisking closer, surrounding by a wind-tousled black cloak. Underneath the hood, they saw a familiar face.
"Scott?" Pw0nzd asked. "You were the Grim Reaper?"
"Indeed," Scott/GR laughed. "Only a day or two after I was killed did Brandonb realize the mistake- if the Mafia had decided not to stick a poison syringe in my neck, more Innocents would be dead. Of course, the Mafia killed me because they were sure I was some Innocent role, I forget which. It was definitely Open Warfare that night- I had decided to kill Grey Cells because he had been outspoken against me the previous day. Little did I know that he was there at Grim Pond to watch me, as the Mafia were planning my execution that same night."
"How are you- how-?" someone sputtered.
"The Grim Reaper never stays dead for long!" the Grim Reaper announced proudly, quoting the Quarky Spy known as "Grandma" who lived in the town of Tumbleweed. "Just as I arose after my previous death in Awesomeville, I arose again! However, you guys beat me in this place, that's for sure. I'm off to Oasis, where the action is now!"
The Grim Reaper disappeared into the darkness.
"So that means... Slick was the Spy!" Frost said, realizing his mistake the night before. He slapped his forehead. "My kill as Vigilante wasn't the right one."
"Don't beat yourself up," Pw0nzd said. "I understand now that it was Slick that was roughed up that night- when I was the Doctor, that night I was protecting Brandonb- stupid, I know, but I didn't know better at the time. I heard someone getting roughed up- it was Slick, cuz he lives near Brandonb, and Brandonb was a Mafioso!"
"Well," said Itachi. "I think we've got it down... except," he added, turning toward the fiery ruin that used to be the Defender's house. "Where's KOP?"
KOP laughed from the edge of the fire. Unless something was done NOW, he would escape.
"Everyone move," said Pieman grimly. "I'm going after him."
"No," Frost said, reaching for his pistol, but it wasn't there.
"Don't be an idiot," Pw0nzd said. "If KOP pickpocketed Frost, then you can't run at him."
"I'm not running at him," said Pieman, then, before anyone could stop him, sprinted straight into the massive fire.
It took a second of utter shock. Then:
BOOOM!!! The Bomb exploded with a massive eruption of fire and light and noise and bellowing shockwaves that roasted KOP on the spot, turning him into a human-shaped cloud of fiery cinders for a moment before the shockwaves came rolling outwards, blazing over the street and tousling everyone's hair like a cyclone.
Then all was still, and nobody moved for a while minute.
Then: applause. Everyone started clapping, clapping away the fear and confusion and death and deceit and lies that had been spun the previous three days and nights. It was over- it was finally over, and Awesomeville had come out on top. They had lost some great Innocents, but they were sacrifices in the name of the ultimate victory. The Mafia and the Grim Reaper were dead, and Awesomeville was at peace.
|"That's the story, kids," the grandma said, finishing with her cruel cliffhanger meant to scare the little brats. After all, the grandma was a Quarky Spy, a sleeper agent from Content Phoenix's neighboring country, Quarky.
The sleeper agent had just been reactivated.
The grandma left the kids sleeping (or quivering and quaking in their beds, scarred for life of tales of Awesomeville, the town not too far north from Tumbleweed) and rode on her dune buggy across the desert toward Oasis, a large, sprawling desert trading city gathered around a cluster of watering holes and palm trees. It was the southmost city of Content Phoenix, and very close to the hazy desert border between Content Phoenix and Quarky. It would be Quarky's first prize in their advance northward, using Quarky Spies to infiltrate the people and kill them off. There was also a rumor that the Mafia had set up in town... and of course, the Grim Reaper had arrived a week before after the explosion at Awesomeville (the grandma's story had been a very recent one) and was ready to cause some trouble, as always.
The Host God Unreality shifted his focus to Oasis, thinking about roles and promising to make the topic for Mafia III soon ;D
