そしてあの日、恋になった。
and on that day, I fell in love.


自己紹介 Introductions

This is a UPICK set in a high school in an unknown region of Japan that is never directly stated.  You are a high school student. Maybe you are a girl that is on a revenge quest to find her dad's killer using some weaponized stationary. Maybe you are an esper. Maybe you are the new transfer student who has been hooked (pardon the pun) by an alien to go on a fishing trip. Maybe you have the uncanny ability to leap through time.

You can't help but think you've seen this all before.

This is Gakuen Mafia Season 2: School Festival.

Once you pick your character archetype, you must go into this avatar creator and create what your character will look like.

The sole caveat is that this is being animated by a different studio than Season 1. It is a spiritual sequel.

So: you cannot choose the same archetype as the one you had in the previous season, or in other words, you can't  play the exact same character again. Call it a consequence of staff shuffling or the ending of the previous anime being polarizing. I am going to tentatively say that you can choose a trope similar to one found in Season 1 that someone else had, except for your own. Do not try to circumvent this by saying you are the twin sister of your character from season 1 with astonishingly similar interests and personality. It will not work.

Make them look as anime as you want. Here are some guidelines.

Use the plain blue default background.

Please don't add anything that goes outside of the frame. A little bit is fine, for example some of the hands/accessories might get cut off, but don't go crazy with the wings.

The character design you create will be paired with your actual username, so don't make a design so embarrassing that you won't want it associated with your name.

You can change the portrait over the course of the game, but new portraits still have to be made using the maker.

Your character design, along with your character archetype, will be posted openly in the main post, but otherwise this game will be closed-role.

でも…なぜ? But... Why?

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." - Lao Zi

I am going to say right now that
I don't know if this game will become a visual novel.

告白 Confessions

No high school setting is complete without a ridiculously overcomplicated method of telling your fellow students that your heart goes dokidoki when you are near them. This game will feature a romance mechanic.

During any phase, you may confess your love to another player. PM the host with the name of the player and a short message declaring your love. The confession message will be forwarded to the other player as soon as the host is available.

The person you confess to can either accept or reject your love. You will be made aware of the response as soon as the host is available.

If they accept, then starting the next phase, the pair of you can send one private message to each other per phase through the host. You can send the message at any point during the phase, but you will both receive the other person's message at the end of the phase, at rollover.

If they reject, nothing happens.

Unless your role specifically allows it, you may only be in one relationship at a time. If someone confesses to you and you are already in a relationship, you must break off your relationship or reject the confession.

If you would like to end a relationship, send a PM to the host saying that you want to break up. This effect is instantaneous and both you and your ex can confess to another player again immediately.

規律 Rules

Unlimited vote changes. Please spare me from the grief of 95% of the game voting in the final minute. Please.

No lynch and no vote are both valid votes.

Ghosts Players in detention may not post in thread.

There will be an activity clause of some sort in this game (48 hours without posting anything in-thread), unless you tell me in advance of your disappearance or it was an urgent emergency.


  • If you let me know of your disappearance or inactivity ahead of time (e.g. during signup) I'll be cool with it.

  • The punishment for inactivity is something I haven't decided yet, but I'm thinking it'll be 48 hours without posting. In a previous game I hosted long ago, the punishment was a modkill, I think, but the player numbers on this forum are not conductive to modkills. I am currently leaning towards nulling your ability to vote during the day phase/nulling your night phase ability (if any) the phase immediately after the 48 hour timer is up.


If there is a tie, then whoever is lynched is RNG'd.

Rollover will be at 12:00PM EST. This is partially because given life constraints I can't do rollover in the morning/afternoon, and it also accommodates individuals that I may be forcing against their will to join that live in Pacific timezones.

Action priority, even though roles are a blip in the distance at the moment, will be:

Bus > Stun > Protect > Other actions/Kill

If a role of higher priority than the kill is killed while attempting the action, it will go through. If two roles that attempt to act on each other are of the same priority (stun vs another stun), then it falls to inbox priority. If one role acts on another role and it has higher priority (a stunner targets a killer who tries to kill them), it will have higher priority than the kill/other action.

Club actions are completely separate.

部活 Clubs

Normally, this would be your typical anime high school. This is not any high school semester, though. This game is just in time for this particular high school's annual cultural festival, where all the clubs get together to make some sort of stand or event to show off. Your glory is on the line. Your school reputation is on the line. Maybe if you have the best yakitori stand at the school festival senpai will finally notice you.

For more information on this trope, please check out this link.

Maybe there will be a volleyball club. A light music club. The Far Eastern Magic Nap Society of Summer.

There will be a club mechanic, on top of the romance mechanic.

At the beginning of the game, during signups, players can PM me what clubs they would like to see in the game. Whichever suggested clubs end up being the most popular or are easiest to adapt to the game (in the case of ties) will be used in the game.

I will post the number of clubs and the name of each club at the beginning of the game. The number of clubs will be equal to the (# of players)/3, rounded down. Each club can have a maximum of 3 members.

On N0, I will post the names of all the clubs in the game on the game start post. During N0, players can send me the name of the top 3 clubs that they would like to join. Club assignments on N0 will be based on inbox priority; if the club you want to join is full thanks to being ninja'd, you will be bumped into the club that you chose second (taking inbox priority into account once again). If there is an odd person out or someone is just really unlucky with club selection, I will inform you that you are not a member of a club. However, you can always try again once per phase to join one club if you couldn't join one on n0.

All joining of clubs is processed at rollover. It's not immediate, so if you experience SECOND THOUGHTS you can always rescind your decision before rollover.

You cannot leave a club once you have joined it. You signed a blood pact with the club and now you must honour it, even if your character despises the other two characters in the club. It's a bonding exercise.

The first member to join a particular club during the game will be crowned the Club President. This is a title in name only and confers no extra powers or abilities.

Should the Club President leave the club by detention or other means, whoever among the remaining players in the club who has been in the club for the longest time will assume the position of Club President during the next Day Phase, and so on. There's a seniority clause here.

Players will not be informed of the identities of fellow club members upon joining, but will be informed through PM at rollover if any club members have left the club either through death or other means (though identities will be kept secret).

Should all members of a club die without anyone joining the club to replace them (that is, any club that had at least 1 member at one point in time loses all of them at some point), the club will be rendered defunct and no one will be able to join the club in future phases. Clubs becoming defunct will be announced in rollover.

Each club confers a special ability to its members, which will be told to the members upon them joining the club. These are in addition to relationship abilities and regular abilities, which will be maintained from Season 1. These powers will affect only the club metagame, and will not influence relationships or players or the whole mafia vs town battle in any way.

If there is only one club left standing at any point in the game (and the rest have all become defunct through death of all members or other means), then at that point in time the current members of that club will receive a win condition, to be awarded once the game ends so as to not reveal the identities of the members of the club. This is a competition, after all.

This win will be given regardless of the alignments of the players in the club.

ye s yes yes yes ye sy esyes yes yes yes yes ye s eys yes yes yes!!!!!

this looks really cool nautilus omfg. The only thing that doesn't appear clear to me is that, at one point you say it's impossible to leave a club and, at another, you say "if everyone dies OR leaves a club it will become defunct", like there's a way for ppl to leave?? ?? Also when you say "no one will be able to join that club again ever", it also contradicts the "leaving not allowed" rule.

Anyway this is gonna be great. oh my god.

OKAY SO YOU WERE THE ONE WHO SUGGESTED CHANGING CLUBS so:

Originally there was a plan for someone to be able to change clubs with a 4 phase cooldown, but upon discussing with others I realized that it could be confusing with respect to the win condition and also slightly awkward if someone who enters a club the same phase when a bunch of people leave it somehow ends up winning the club battle royale

Therefore you actually can't leave clubs ever*, and anything referring to being able to leave a club = me forgetting to remove references to it in the post

Long story short: you can't leave clubs ever*

*Someone's personal ability/relationship ability may affect these rules (much like how Plot could construct a harem and break the relationship limit in Season 1), so assume rules such as these apply to the majority of players (e.g. 99% of players cannot leave a club or whatever).

All club abilities will not affect the game in any way outside of the club battle royale, mostly because that makes it easier for people to claim clubs without experiencing any actual repercussions in the maf/town fight. I mean, if you want your club affiliations to become public, instead of riding solo

Tossing all the BBCoding stuff here so I can have easy access to it later. I also made new banners and a sensei portrait1 so I'll probably adjust the BBCode colours while keeping everything the same at some point.

Someone brought up why club members are anonymous to each other when clubs are notified at death if someone's """"left the club""""" through dying.

I know this is a moot mechanic, but I really want to emulate that experience. You know, that experience where your teacher puts you into groups and you don't know who the fuck your group members are until the initial meeting. You know the one. You probably have had this experience before.

Also: clubs are completely optional because they have no bearing (powers-wise) on the game itself unless you really want that extra random win condition (and even so that's technically not towards any alignment). So you can choose to never join a club. But why would you hate fun.

I haven't decided whether or not I'll keep the student table, we'll see.

1 Sensei's appearance will be secret until the game's start. I have... a plan.

Posting to say that I gutted any mention of communication between clubs or within clubs, mostly because there's no guarantee people won't use these club messaging methods to communicate actual game sensitive information (e.g. Club President uses their bulletin to out their investigations privately). Club President will still exist, they

They just won't have a power

You are the human form of the RNG. You're not sure why you're playing this game, to be honest.
