"HELLO, EVERYONE, MY NAME'S JAVE COHNSON. THAT'S COHNSON WITH A "C" LIKE WISCONSIN IF YOU'VE HEARD OF IT, AND MANY OF YOU PROBABLY HAVEN'T. I HADN'T UNTIL WE DREW UP A CONTINENTAL MAP JUST THE OTHER WEEK. LAB BOYS ASSURE ME IT EXISTS, BUT UNTIL SEVERAL TESTS CONCLUDE, I HAVE REASONABLE DOUBTS OTHERWISE.

I SEE MY LOVELY ASSISTANT CAROLYNN HAS ALREADY BRIEFED YOU ALL ON OUR SERVICES HERE AT ERUPTEA, BUT ALLOW ME TO TAKE A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME OTHERWISE. WE HERE AT ERUPTEA PRIDE OURSELVES ON OUR INNOVATIVE WORKS AND CLEVER VISION FOR THE FUTURE. IT'S NEVER A MATTER OF "WHEN" OR "WHY", BUT "HOW" AS IN "HOW SOON CAN I EXPECT ALL OF YOU TO SAFELY CONCLUDE THESE PROTOTYPE TRIALS", AND THE ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION MAY SURPRISE SOME OF YOU.

LET'S NOT MINCE MATTERS HERE, FOLKS. WE'RE DOING SCIENCE. AND SCIENCE IS UNPREDICTABLE. IF IT WERE PREDICTABLE, IT'D BE SOMETHING NOBODY NEEDS LIKE GEOGRAPHY. IF SOMEONE OFFERED ME THE CHOICE BETWEEN LOOKING AT A MAP OR RUNNING THROUGH A NIGHT PHASE WITH A ROLE COBBLED TOGETHER OF THREE ACTIVES AND FOURTEEN DIFFERENT PASSIVES, HA, WELL, I THINK WE KNOW WHAT I'D CHOOSE. JUDGING BY THE FACT THAT YOU ARE PROCESSING THIS MESSAGE, I DARESAY YOU WOULD DO THE SAME.

NOW, FOR THESE COMING PROTOTYPE TRIALS WE HAVE A WHOLE WIDE ASSORTMENT OF ROLES LINED UP FOR YOU FOLKS. EVERYTHING FROM STUNNER TO POISON DOCTOR - - EVEN SOME OF THE MORE USELESS ONES LIKE NAIVE COP. IN THE NEXT ROOM WE'VE STUCK SOME GOOD OLD FASHIONED LABELS ONTO EACH BOX
HOLDING A ROLE, AND YOU'RE FREE TO CHOOSE WHATEVER YOU LIKE. JUST DON'T EXPECT IT TO WORK PERFECTLY. THESE ARE PROTOTYPES AFTER ALL -- PROTOTYPES OF SCIENCE! AND SOMETIMES THINGS DON'T WORK EXACTLY AS YOU THOUGHT. OR WORSE. BUT DON'T LET THAT SCARE YOU AWAY! THOSE OF YOU --
I MEAN ALL OF YOU THAT MAKE IT THROUGH THESE TRIALS WILL COME AWAY FROM THIS WITH A BRIGHT, HEALTHY, HAPPY UNDERSTANDING OF THE JOYS OF SCIENCE! SO COME ON UP INTO THE NEXT ROOM AND GRAB A ROLE. YOU'LL KNOW WHEN THE TEST STARTS.

- - mechanics
For this U-Pick game, every player need only submit five (5) roles to the host via PM after registering in thread as a test subject. Registration will run for a few days and will be clarified through in-thread updates and edits, however expect it to last roughly three or four days from whenever this game is posted, with the game ideally starting two or three days after that. Once all players have submitted their roles, I, your host for this prototype trial, will select one of your desired roles. You will then receive this role as your designated role at the start of the game . . . After a fashion.

These roles must not be some crazy invention of your own doing - - I'm the scientist, here, not you. Many standard roles should be obvious enough via name, however I would appreciate it if all non-obvious or obscure role submissions could be paired alongside a link to the role from a popular source such as Mafia Scum, Epic Mafia (appears to be having server troubles as of this writing), or similar. Feel free to link the standard fare (doctor, cop, vigilante, etc.) all the same if you are one of those sticklers for consistency.

Do be advised that I will not allow you to submit a set of roles that are predominantly identical in function. That is to say if over half or all of your roles are some variation of the same thing -- like submitting Doctor, Bulletproof, Bodyguard, and similar -- I will reject your submitted roles and ask for a new set.

The roles you then receive will merely be something interesting along the lines of one of your desired roles. There are no crazy flavor-based or additional game mechanics. There may end up being some themed or unusual mechanics as part of the interpretation of your chosen roles, but we'll see when the time comes, won't we? While the roles are "prototypal", they will not be needlessly unreliable, RNG-based, or anything else. Consider "prototypal" merely to mean "in the spirit of" your chosen role in this context.

And that's it. Simple registration. Simple gameplay. Simple fun. Not so simple experiment. There may be some mid-thread interjections by Jave Cohnson and Carolynn, but these will have no effect on gameplay and will be marked as such.


- - warning
Test subjects may be exposed to highly intense and stressful environments. Side-effects of testing may include swearing, crying, nausea, confusion, the sudden urge to post, aversion to large walls of text, spontaneous fits of laughter, new-found pleasure from finger pointing, a fear of buses and clothing workers, rope burns, and in some cases death. The experimenter may not be held responsible for any sudden emotionally-charged fake modkills that may occur.


- - rules
I will update this closer to game start, since I have no idea what to expect in terms of roles and interactions. Standard rules will apply, such as:


  1. No quoting or screencapping your role PM.
  2. Dead players may not speculate in thread or discuss the game with living players.
  3. If you do not post for 48 hours, you will lose access to your role for 24 hours and may be replaced or modkilled if this continues.
  4. Town wins if they eliminate all mafia.
  5. Mafia wins if they equal or out-number town, probably.


These rules are subject to change and may end up slightly modified. I will notify you if this happens
