Ghostbusters: Total Protonic Reversal (Night 1)

Postby SuicideJunkie » Mon Jul 08, 2019 10:25 pm UTC

GhostBusters: Total Protonic Reversal

When there is something strange in the neighbourhood, you call the Ghostbusters. But when the Ghostbusters find themselves in a strange situation and it don't look good, who do they call?

Thread Index:
Day 1 (Hammered)
Night 1 (Timer)

Mod: SuicideJunkie
Speed: 4 day days, 1-2 day nights
Size: 7.
Setup: Medium Bastardry: Reversi + unusual powers.

Game start: Any Minute Now!

Details:
Reversi rules mean that everyone is trying to eliminate their own faction, including themselves.
- Town players must try to lynch town players until the mafia match or outnumber them.
- Mafia players must try to lynch mafia players until there are no more mafia.

(Essentially, a perfectly normal game except that everyone is a traitor.)

Sample Town PM:
Spoiler:
You are Teresa the Boo.

Power:
You automatically become intangible whenever a mafia player targets you at night. While intangible, all night actions targeting you will fail.

Reversi Win Condition:
As a ghost, you must vote off or otherwise eliminate ghosts, including yourself in order to win.
if all the Ghostbusters escape, you will lose..


Grittier Details on Reversi:
Spoiler:
Faction win conditions:
  • Town wins when all classical threats are eliminated and at least one member of Town is still alive.
  • Mafia wins when the Mafia faction controls the lynch vote. (50%+0)
  • Cult wins when the Cult controls the lynch vote. (50%+0 unless Mafia has 50%)
  • Independents have their independent win conditions.

REVERSI Special Wins
  • If your role PM indicates you are TOWN, then you must ensure the Town faction does not win in order to personally win.
  • If your role PM indicates you are MAFIA, then you must ensure the Mafia faction is eliminated (including yourself) in order to personally win.
  • If your role PM indicates you are CULT, then you must ensure the Cult is eliminated (including yourself) in order to personally win.
  • If your role PM indicates you are a SURVIVOR, then you must get yourself killed (ie: be lynched or NKed) in order to personally win.
  • If your role PM indicates you are a JESTER, then you must not be lynched (ie: survive or be NKed) in order to personally win.
  • If your role PM indicates you are an UNDERDOG, then you must be eliminated before any other factions lose in order to personally win.
  • If your role PM indicates you are a TRAITOR, then you must ensure your faction wins in order to personally win.
  • Personally relevant Faction vs Personal win conditions will be explained in the role PM.


Players:
  1. Sabrar (alive?)
  2. wam (alive?)
  3. freezeblade (alive?)
  4. moody7277 (Hammered - Role TBR)
  5. bessie (alive?)
  6. mpolo (alive?)
  7. BoomFrog (alive?)

"Still no calls, Janine?"

"Just a crank call and some spam lately. I told them Professor McQuack had a bath just yesterday, so we don't need our ducts cleaned."

"Nice one. I guess all this bright summer weather is to blame for the lack of business. Should have booked vacation when I had the chance."

"Say, I've always wondered; what happens to the ghosts in the containment unit? Does it not get cramped in there?"

"Ah, you see, the phase space of spooks is quite a bit larger than most people would think; phantasms, poltergeists, your common spooks and haunts, they're all somewhat tangent to each other. That's the same reason why most of them can pass through walls, and only very rarely interact with other ghosts in the outside world; low energy ghosts are intangible to not just us but each other as well. Although it is a small volume, there's enough room for them to spread out in those virtual dimensions. It is really quite fascinating mathematically."

"And it isn't going to fill up and spill out?"

"No worries about that. The containment grid allows a slow draining of psychokinetic energy, and we don't capture new ghosts anywhere fast enough to overwhelm that."

"Like weeping tiles on a septic tank then?"

"It is a high precision technological marvel! ... but essentially yes."

"Hah, don't worry, it won't be going in our advertisements."


(Still waiting for the 7th player.)

"Are you still working on that thing?" asked Ray as he descended the stairs to visit Egon in the basement.

"I'm retuning an interspacial gasket while it is in use. Do you have any idea how many parameters I've got to hold steady while I do this?" shot back Egon from chest deep in the bowels of the Ecto-Containment System.

"Given it is sealing a four dimensional manifold? Four."

"Well, true, but this is delicate work! If you want to have to recatch all those ghosts from around the world, then feel free to rush me."

"Nah, nah, it's fine. I'm glad you've got that attention to detail. Even brought you some coffee to help out."

"Thanks Ray. You mind handing me the hyperspanner while you're out there?"

"Metric or Imperial?"

"..."

"Huh, has Slimer been messing with your tools again? This is a bit goopy. Whoops!"

Meanwhile, inside the Containment Unit, the ghosts felt the sudden pulse of energy and a faint whistling sound.
A small leak, but enough to escape through perhaps?


Day One has begun.
With 7 remaining, it takes 4 to hammer someone through the leak into freedom.

Only 4 days for D1? I like that. I also like my ability, it provides a nice safety net. From what I hear you say? That would be telling.
I'm not a fan of this format because the mechanics mean that if you play well then you don't get to play for long.

Not necessarily. You can play well and super townie, but someone else may be townie too and get lynched first, and there is no reason for mafia to night kill you.

And playing super townie is not always alignment indicative.

Must admit, I'm trying to get my mind around how to play this with the reversi element. Essentially, we ghosts want to escape from the trap. So, let's escape.

Sabrar is not too jumpy for a ghost.

The flavor makes perfect sense. I expected the ghostbusters to not be in here with us. Probably SuicideJunkie is doing something normal and will just hand-wave a a ghostbuster lynch in the flavor. Maybe lynching a ghostbuster will shoot them out of the containment? Anyway, I think we have other scum in here, so we shouldn't focus on looking for a team, especially with our large number of players.

How do I think the mafia NK works this game? I'm uninterested in how it worked last game, but it is probably exactly the same.

In my reading of this, you think it may work the same as it did in the small game, but you're not interested in learning how it worked? That makes no sense to me

I would be interested in knowing how the mafia "kill" worked in the last game (or if there was one at all). Does anyone know off-hand, or do I have to dig for myself?

The game ended too quick for us to learn how the night kills worked. at least, IIRC.

Spoiler:
You are a Mafia Cleaner.

Night Effect:
Each night, you may choose what cop results will be given for each player remaining in the game. Default results are the same as sane cop until you change them.
(For each remaining player including yourself, make one choice from Town, Not Town, No result)

Faction Night Effect:
As a member of the Mafia faction, you may choose to attempt to NK another player each night. You may not self-target. This is optional; you may choose to withhold.

Win condition:
As a member of Mafia, you must ensure Mafia loses.
This means eliminating members of the Mafia (including yourself), without eliminating the Town.

Special:
In case of a tied vote, you may choose which of the tied players is lynched (choose yourself where possible of course).

So, my first instinct is that random voting as a serious option D1 is not the most terrible thing. Town's in the majority, so a shot in the dark is more likely to hit town. D2 is when the rubber hits the road with hard data.

I'm kind of meh as far as setup spec goes. There are only a couple of possibilities for numbers, and I don't want to get into the weeds of particulars (I'll leave that to our self styled expert bessie).
