    So, I got to talking on IRC, and I've wanted to host a game for god knows how long, but I always felt that there were 'rules' in place for how many games could be running at a time, and lines to host games, and well, that is just not the case. If I don't get enough people, I'll just wait until I do. No biggie. Here's hoping that no one gets mad at me, but if you do, TOO BAD, BRO. This is primarily for those of you who haven't played many, if any games, but you can play whether you've played one or 7 games.


    Overview:
    Death Eaters is a Mafia variant. It is between two teams: the uninformed majority and the informed minority. At the beginning of the game, each player is told their role by the Game Host.

    The Villagers are told they are apart of the village and their role. They do not know who the other villagers are (unless otherwise stated) and are only aware of their own role. To win, all the Death Eaters must be killed. During the day phase, all players (Death Eaters included) can vote on a single individual to be "Kissed" or removed from play.

    The Death Eaters are told their role in addition to the roles of all other Death Eaters. They must work together to carefully get rid of the villagers until they are the majority group within Hogsmeade (and voting during the day phase is made irrelevant). During the night phase of the game, they can work together to kill a villager.

    NOTE: VILLAGERS DO NOT HAVE A QT, SO DO NOT MENTION YOUR QT IN THE THREAD....UNLESS YOU WANT TO DIE.

    Night and Day Phase:
    Both Night and Day are 24 hours, NO EXCEPTIONS WHATSOEVER.
    The game will begin during day. During day phases, the villagers will be able to use the thread to communicate and discuss who among them is guilty and should be Kissed. At any time a villager may submit a single vote to have another villager Kissed. When a person in Hogsmeade receives a simple majority of votes at any point in time, they are removed from play and their role is revealed. Players may rescind their vote at any time and cast it for someone else (so long as it is day phase). Players may cast a DEADLINE vote. They cannot rescind their vote after a majority is reached against one player. If a majority of votes is not reached against one player by the end of the day phase, no one is Kissed.

    During the night phase, discussion in the thread is prohibited. Death Eaters can collude via their group QT and the Game Host will check the QT to see the individual they want to kill. Roles (such as Healer, Auror) may additionally be used during this time. Both Death Eaters and Order Members may talk in their QTs during both Night and Day phases

    At the beginning of the next day phase, if a person was killed, their name and role is identified by the Game Host and the process starts anew.

    Villagers of Hogsmeade
    Wizard or Witch ( 8 ):
    Role is similar to Citizen in normal games of Mafia. Wizards or witches have no special abilities. They can vote during the day on who shall be Kissed.
    Abilities
    None (HAS NO QT)​

    Order Member (2):
    Role is similar to Mason in normal games of Mafia. Members of the Order of the Phoenix have the ability to communicate with other Members and so are thus aware of at least one other confirmed villager.
    Abilities
    - Communication with other Order Members via group QT​

    Tags in Hat
    2-Man Order of the Phoenix (value: 4)
    3-Man Order of the Phoenix (value: 7.5)


    Healer (1):
    Role is similar to Doctor in normal games of Mafia. Healers have the unique ability to target one individual for "protection" during the night phase of the game. Individuals who are being protected by a Healer cannot be killed. Healers can however be role-blocked, thus nullifying their protection powers for the evening. Healers additionally cannot target themselves for protection.
    Abilities
    - Has a QT to record his/her thoughts and night action
    - Can target one individual each evening making them invulnerable​

    Auror (1):
    Role is similar to Cop or Investigator in normal games of Mafia. The Auror has the ability to investigate any of the players. During night phases, they can target a single individual to find out whether that person is a Death Eater. Aurors can be role-blocked, making their investigative ability useless for the evening.
    Abilities
    - Has a QT to record his/her thoughts and night action
    - Can investigate one villager each evening to see if he or she is a Death Eater​


    Death Eaters of Hogsmeade
    Death Eater (2):
    Role is similar to Mafioso in normal games of Mafia. They can communicate with other Death Eaters and are able to vote on a single villager to kill each night.
    Abilities
    - Communication with other Death Eaters via group QT
    - Can vote to target a villager to be killed during night phase​

    Sorcerer or Sorceress (1):
    Role is similar to Consort in normal games of Mafia. The Sorcerer or Sorceress is a role-blocker. They can target one individual each night and prevent them from using any of their abilities. Additionally, they can communicate with other Death Eaters and vote on a single villager each evening to be disposed of.
    Abilities
    - Communication with other Death Eaters via group QT
    - Can target one individual each evening, preventing them from using any of their abilities
    - Can vote to target a villager to be killed during night phase​

    Dark Lord (1):
    Role is similar to Godfather in normal games of Mafia. The Dark Lord is the strongest Death Eater role. If targeted for investigation during the night, the Dark Lord will appear to be a villager. If consensus on who to kill cannot be reached by the other Death Eaters, the Dark Lord can step in at the last moment (see rules) to determine a target.
    Abilities
    - Communication with other Death Eaters via group QT
    - Will appear as Villager when investigated by Auror
    - Can vote to target a villager to be killed during night phase
    - Can determine which villager to target for kill if no consensus reached​

    Joining, because why not. It's been a bit since I mafia'd, and something a little less complex appeals right now, even with no Traveller... So I'm in.

    Because of my schedule and what I've already got I'm not sure I can play right off the bat however, about 4ish days or so I'll be free so, I figured if someone bombs out by then and an Alt is needed, I'll be free.
