MAFIA: That game where you die a lot (SUMMER '14)

#21
"Pfft," Bob replied through a mouthful of chips. "I'm eating far too much to have time to kill anyone."

((NOTE OF EXPLANATION!

So one thing I forgot to mention is that in traditional Mafia games, folks in the equivalent of the Greek Chorus don't have a vote. Why? Because also traditionally, this kind of thing is played out in person, and when you're out, you can actually see who the murderer is.

But this is online, and I'm just saying that now because I'm too lazy to flip a coin. :V Sorry, Slayr!))


Peter clicks and tilts his head at Bob's question. Then, after a pause, he cheerfully replies, "I'm sorry. I don't understand. Searching ... searching ... did you mean where is the hamburger stand? Command result found! Hi, friend! I heard you're looking for the hamburger stand! We have sixteen hamburger stands in Happy Fun Candy Land! The nearest one to our current location is Moo Moo Patty, located down Main Street. Follow me!"

And thus, Peter Pikachu leads you to a hamburger stand manned by a cartoonish and apparently oblivious-to-irony miltank.

It was okay, although it probably would have been better if Mary Miltank didn't insert cow puns into everything she said. And also if she wasn't a cow.

After that, and only after that, you decide to throw Praxiteles in the park catacombs because you might as well enact justice, right?

Later that night, thinking that you've solved the murder mystery of the season, all of you retreat to your hotel rooms, barring the obvious absence of two of your friends. Or companions. Fellow test subjects. However you view Slayr and Praxiteles. However, not all of you stay in your hotel rooms.

And you know this because the next day, as you head out to test a few rides in another sector of the park, you find Peter Pikachu, the two chestnaught, and even more mechanical mon gathered by Latias's Wild Ride, the fastest roller coaster in the park. Barred in the front seat is Praxiteles himself, and you probably wish you didn't see him. His head is bent back at an odd angle, his skin is ghost-white, and his face is twisted into an expression of sheer horror—wide eyes, mouth open, and hair streaked backwards. It's clear to you that physics was not on Praxiteles's side.

Just like yesterday, Peter Pikachu rounds on you almost immediately.

"Good morning, friends!" he cries. "Don't worry about this! We've got everything all under control! It's just part of the show, haha! Today, we have a special treat for all of you: a water show at 11:00 sharp, right at the Magic Lake of Wonder! Don't miss it!"

Behind him, two of the mechanical chansey unceremoniously shove Praxiteles out of the roller coaster car and begin dragging him by the feet off the ride's platform.


((And thus, we have our second death! Thank you, murderer, for ensuring that our game goes on for another day or so. *le bow*

As always, players, you have twenty-four hours to submit guesses as to who the murderer is. Murderer, you have twenty-four hours to choose a next victim.

See you tomorrow~!))
Holmes: Punch me in the face.
Watson: Punch you?
Holmes: Yes! Punch me! In the face! Didn't you hear me?
Watson: I always hear "punch me in the face" when you're speaking, but it's usually subtext.

"Great, another death," Bill muttered. Bob only managed a quiet sob. "But who could it be?" He paused a moment and frowned. "This probably seems a bit reactionary, but I think it's you, An-chan. You were the only one here not suspicious of Praxiteles, despite their not uttering a single word. And they didn't die straight away, so they don't even have an excuse for that! When people start dying and you're surrounded by cheerful robots, you naturally are suspicious of those acting oddly, like people who don't say a word."

Bob moaned a bit louder now, but Bill ignored him.

"But... you didn't think that too odd, and tried to pin it on us instead for talking a bit more - not much more, I thought - than anyone else. And why would the true murderer be suspicious of someone who doesn't speak after all? Was Praxiteles quiet enough to make a good enough victim?"

"Uh, I can't take it," Bob yelped.

"There there, old fellow, it's fine," Bill soothed, turning to his friend. "Don't worry, we got that fancy private insurance, remember? If we get killed, we'll come back to life in time for the next death-filled holiday!"

"It's not that, I think I have a stomach ache..."

"Oh. Yeah, well, I told you to stop eating so much candy," Bill replied nonchalantly.

"I'm leaning towards Bob and Bill's reasoning there," Bay said and nodded. "Yes, my vote goes to you too, An-chan. I still find it odd you weren't fazed by the robots."

((Hey, guys! Sorry this took me so long. I was practically out of it all last night. That said ...!))


At Bob's explanation, Peter Pikachu's eyes flash. "Detecting presence of unhappiness! Searching ... searching ... found! Hi, friend! You seem to be experiencing mild discomfort! Come with me to the infirmary, and we'll get you right as rain again!"

Thus, unless Bob protests, Peter Pikachu will likely literally drag him away. But that's okay because the water show is actually pretty awesome. You were not aware that goldeen could actually do that, but there you go.

That night, all of you return to your hotel rooms, except An-chan, who is politely escorted by eight-foot-tall mechanical tyranitar with cattle prods. And, of course, the killer.

And you know that the killer is still on the loose because, of course, one of you is him, another is his accomplice, and the third finds An-chan's body broken and bloodied in a six-bumper-car pileup. All of you stand next to the bumper car attraction and Peter Pikachu the next morning, watching a mechanical wartortle use the Jaws of Life on one of the tiny cars.

"Don't worry about this!" Peter Pikachu says with flailing arms. "We've got everything all under control! It's just part of the show, hahaaaaaaaa—ERROR. ERRRRROR. COMMAND NOT FOUND. Command cache purged. Remote user detected. Please input command."

And with that, Peter Pikachu turns directly to bobandbill.

Bay Alexison probably has the distinct feeling she's not going to get that paycheck.

But I for one find it improper to speak for other people.


AND THERE YOU HAVE IT! Congrats to bobandbill and Bay for being the last two standing. :D You both receive 150 points and the Mafia Ribbon when it's finished. Applause goes to bobandbill for the creative deaths.

In the meantime, feel free to play out the rest of the scene (if you so choose). We still have time in the posting blitz to have one more round, so if you're interested in signing up again, feel free to post in this thread as well! Setting and circumstances will be revealed if there's enough interest in round two.

Watson: Punch you?
Holmes: Yes! Punch me! In the face! Didn't you hear me?

Oh my gosh, I knew it. My first guess was right! It was a shame I was the first one gone.

Sorry, Slayr! As last time when I was the killer, I went with rng to choose, and it happened to like you. Exexex

Yay for a mafia ribbon! Now I can pretend to be cool. Do we have time for another round though...? Already the evening 31st for me, and I can only do it up to my 4th. If that's okay I don't mind doing another though, just that it would run past the posting blitz. But that needn't be a reason to go again!

Haha, that depends on how many people are up for another round. 8) I mean, totally, it's going to be running past the Posting Blitz, but, like, if we started a round already, it would be the shortest and most hilarious round ever created.

Like:

Me: *rolls RNG*
bobandbill: ...
Slayr321: ...
Me: CONGRATS, BOBANDBILL, YOU'RE THE MURDERER AGAIN.
bobandbill: I CHOOSE TO KILL OFF SLAYR.
Slayr231: ASDFHGKDJFOWUEGOB

Or something to that effect. Depending on whether or not Slayr's cursed by all RNGs or just bnb's.

Still, if people are interested in another round that continues after the Blitz, feel free to sign up anyway!

I'd be up for another round! Sorry for missing yesterday's vote, durr. Not that it would have made much of a difference... But still, I'm sorry, and I distinctly would not mind another round because this was way short and apparently I figured out who the murderer was right off the bat. Let's have another go!

Wooow, I was out of everything the entire time and got killed quickly. This is just like real life.

I wouldn't mind having another round... This time I'd actually do it properly (even if it was a hilariously short one).

Since the others are cool for another quick round, why not I'll join too. XD
