Grand Idea Mafia: Town of Salem Edition

Postby TheCow » Thu Nov 12, 2015 10:52 pm

Grand Idea Mafia is a gamemode originating from MafiaScum. In this thread users post random roles -- any role. When it comes time to host a Grand Idea game, the moderator RNGs numbers for all players corresponding to a post number in this thread. That post is your role.

Rules
  1. Bold your role's name, your post's post number, and spoiler your role's text.
  2. Do not spam this thread needlessly.
  3. Balancing is optional but don't get mad when someone makes a role specifically designed to kill your super deathproof role.
  4. Minor discussion is allowed, however, remember to include a role at the top of your post.
  5. Always explain what a role is and what it does.
  6. Include your post number at the top of your post. Failure to include a post number results in post deletion/editing. Don't be that guy.

Spoiler:
In post 0, BBmolla, of MafiaScum wrote:Vanilla Town


In this topic: The role list for Grand Idea Mafia. Post a role to be included at the top of your post. This can be anything, a normal thing like a Cop or a weird thing like a Compulsive Firebreathing Serial Killer Jester. For Grand Idea Mafia, a person simply takes this thread, and randomizes between 0 - last post number. They then become the role at the top of that post.

If you want to post in this thread something that isn't a crazy role (commenting on a role or something), at least put Vanilla Town at the top of your post. I mean we'll need some of those anyways.

And go

Q and A:
Isn't this Worst/Best role ideas?
No, a shit ton of Worst/Best role ideas is discussion. This is going to be a role list. With discussion. But the discussion has Vanilla Town at the top. So basically yes it's Worst/Best role ideas.

chesskid posted about how dumb this thread is and didn't put a role at the top of his post and I rolled his post number! What do?
You're a Vanilla Townie.

Can I steal a role from Worst Role Ideas/Best Role Ideas?
Yeah sure.

What's the point of this thread?
Theoretically, when this reaches 200+ posts, I'll use it in a micro.

Wow! X posted a role that really god damned broken! I want to run Grand Idea, what do I do?
Just say it's excluded. I'll try to keep a list in an early post of "Roles I would try to exclude" but I'll probably stop updating after 10 posts.

The alignment of the role isn't stated...
If the description doesn't mention win con, assume it's town.

Jesticutioner

Spoiler:
Jesticutioner

You are a Jesticutioner.

Your alignment is Neutral Evil.

This is all just a sick game isn't it? Mafia, murder, public lynching? Inside your head it's all in the name of fun! There are more like you, the ones who took the pact as well. They wont beat you to the punch and if they do, you won't be the one to lose.

You are unkillable at night. If somebody tries to attack you, they will receive a message saying that you were immune.
You will also receive a message stating you were attacked.
Your goal is to get lynched by a majority vote.
If you succeed at this, you've won the game.
If any other Jesticutioner dies, your goal instead becomes "Get the other Jesticutioner lynched by a majority vote or killed"; you will receive their player name and you will lose your immunity.
You know there are 2 other Jesticutioners.

You win with the Town
You win with the Mafia
You win with Survivors
You win with Witches
You win with Arsonists
You win with Serial Killers
You win with Stalkers
You win with Bombers
You may spare anyone else

Centaur Man
You are the Centaur Man. Half man... half man. People laugh at you and call you a man, but in your heart you know you are a Centaur Man.
During the night, you may visit a player. If they are a power role that directly interacts with another player by giving or receiving any feedback, you will know that there is evil mockery in their heart and you will strike them down with your hooves... feet. This kills them, somehow.
(A power role in your scenario is any role that intentionally visits another player as an ability or part of one.)

You win with the Town.

Detective

Spoiler:
Detective

You are a Detective.

Your alignment is Town Investigative.

You're an inspector, particularly admired for you comparisons between criminals and forming connections among suspects. Always ready for a challenge, you're excited to see what these petty lowlifes bring to the table.

Each night you may question a player.
When you question a player you will be informed if they have a connection to the previously questioned player or not. If they are connected then they are of the same alignment (Town, Mafia, Neutral).
Your questioning can be tampered with by outside forces and, on good word, you've heard the leader of the Mafia appears almost exactly like any other Town member.

You win with the Town
You win with Survivors
You must kill the Mafia
You must kill Arsonists
You must kill Witches
You must kill Serial Killers
You must kill Stalkers
You must kill Bombers
You may spare anyone else
