The Mansion Mafia - Hold on tightly to your secrets

São Paulo, Brazil
No one truly knows who owns the Mansion that sits atop the hills overlooking the city. But everyone knows about the huge, weekend-long parties that happen within it.

Throughout the years, inhabitants of the small city have grown accustomed to seeing huge processions of limousines and expensive cars making their way to the Mansion. Sometimes, people would catch glimpses of the partygoers through half-opened windows - Hollywood celebrities, powerful politicians, and sometimes even religious leaders. They never stopped to interact with the commonfolk in any way, but showed up for their little galas like clockwork.

But now, things were different. The 24 that were invited for the next party at the Mansion weren't extraordinary in any way, but instead regular people from the city.

The rest of the city watched them make their way up the hills in a mix of celebratory glee and piercing envy, as if they were chosen ones selected by some form of higher entity.

And now, its gates are finally open...

Sample Role PM:

Welcome to The Mansion, Pedro! We’ve long been waiting for your arrival.

Your true name is Pedro, and we know your secret.

You are a Vanilla Townie. Your only power is to vote.

You are aligned with Town and win when all threats against Town have been eliminated.

During the Day, you can also vote for the next Room you want the group to visit by posting the command MOVE: <Room Name> in the main game thread.

The game thread is here.

After reading this message, please reply to it or post in the game thread to acknowledge it.

I hope you have fun in our little gala.

Mentor Program:
For new and returning players who would like some assistance, we offer a mentorship program where a volunteer veteran player can assist you. If you are interested in having a Mentor for this game, please contact your Gamerunner. For more info, please check the main MafiEra OT.

What Is Mafia?
Mafia, also known as Werewolf, is a famous social deduction game that puts two teams against each other: Town and Mafia. Mafia players know who everyone in their team is, while Town players only know their own alignment. Cut into two ‘Phases’, Day and Night, the game entails Town trying to eliminate the Mafia via discussion and voting while the Mafia are trying to not get caught in order to match or outnumber the Town in order to win.

Interested in joining or learning more? Check out our MafiEra OT!

1. All site-wide rules apply here.
2. Unless explicitly told otherwise, players may not discuss this game outside of this thread.
3. Unless explicitly told otherwise, players may not directly quote or post screenshots of any PMs, posts, conversations, or any other type of document that was not made in this thread.
4. Players are allowed to lie, within reason, about any game-related material such as the content of a role PM.
5. Please respect all of your fellow players. We ask that you respect a player’s personal pronouns and be aware of accessibility when using non-default text formatting. Please do not refer to, or discuss, player activity outside of this thread, for the sake of the game’s integrity.
6. Mafia can be an intense and stressful game at times with situations becoming heated. Despite this, being overly hostile towards your fellow players is not allowed. If a player is caught name calling, using slurs, and/or other aggressive behaviors determined by the Gamerunner they will be warned. If these behaviors continue despite the warning that player will be modkilled. No exceptions.

7. Players are required to post a minimum of 10 posts per day phase. Failure to adhere to this will first result in a warning. On the second offense that player will be removed from the game.
8. If a player posts fewer than 5 posts in a day phase without alerting the Gamerunner to their absence, they will be removed from the game without a warning.
9. If you are unable to continue playing for whatever reason, please contact your Gamerunner.
10. If a replacement is added to the game, they may request the current/upcoming night phase to be extended up-to 48 hours to allow time to catch up.

Voting and Lynching:
11. In order to vote for another player to be lynched, you must present it on its own line and in the following format with no spaces: [ HIGHLIGHT ]VOTE: playername[ /HIGHLIGHT ]. Misspelt votes are only accepted within reason. Any other format will not be accepted.
12. To remove a vote from a player, you may simply vote for another player, or you may present it on its own line and in the following format with no spaces: [ HIGHLIGHT ]UNVOTE[ /HIGHLIGHT ].
13. Players may vote for a “No Lynch” to end the day phase without a lynch. This is done by using the formatting above and typing: [ HIGHLIGHT ]VOTE: No Lynch[ /HIGHLIGHT ].
14. When a player has received a strict majority of available votes (>50%), the day phase ends with the lynch of that player. Once a day phase has ended any in-game discussion stops and votes cast after that will not be counted.

Death and the Spectator Thread:
15. Once you are dead, you may no longer discuss the game in any manner with any of the remaining players.
16. Once dead, players may have a choice between the spectator thread and the replacement list. PM your Gamerunner for more information.

17. Outside of explicit allowances the use of the highlight tag is strictly for Gamerunners. Do not use it.
18. Do not edit your posts or hide content in the formatting. Repeat offenders will be removed from the game.
19. If a player is Banned or they are replaced due to inactivity they will have the lowest possible priority when signing up for a spot in their next game.
20. Gamerunners reserve the right to add, remove, or modify existing any rules at any point, and enforcement may be applied retrospectively. However, all players will be informed of changes beforehand.

The Mansion Mafia Specific Rules (IMPORTANT!)

21. Each Day phase in The Mansion Mafia happens within a particular Room. All Rooms have their own characteristics, which alter the game in different ways.
22. During each Day phase, on top of voting for a lynch candidate, players must also vote for the Room they want the following Day phase to happen in.
23. Rooms are identified by colors, and are listed alongside hints of what their special effects entail. The exact particulars of each Room are only revealed at the start of the Day that will play out in said Room.
24. Players must place votes for the Room they want to visit next by posting the command [ HIGHLIGHT ]MOVE: <Room Name>[ /HIGHLIGHT ] openly in the main game thread.
25. Players can move votes for Rooms around freely. The Room with the most votes at the end of a Day will be visited in the following Day.
26. In case of a tie between two or more Rooms, one will be randomly selected between them.
27. Each special Room can only be visited once during the game. Certain Rooms may become unavailable depending on which other Rooms are chosen by the players.
28. If the game lasts long enough that no new Rooms are available, the starting White Room will be automatically selected in every subsequent Day phase.

An enormous Silver Statue welcomes the 24 invitees into the Mansion, sitting in the middle of the entrance hall.

The Statue is of a masked lady in a long dress, with her hands extended invitingly towards the front door. An inscription on its base reads "Apate, the personification of deceit."

Right below that, there's a strange mechanism holds 11 differently-colored buttons. The White one seems to have been pressed, and is locked into place.

The curiosity of one of the invitees makes them try pressing the remaining buttons - and the loudspeakers pinned to the walls respond in kind, with a synthesized voice seemingly describing what each button represents.

LIst of Rooms:

White Room - “Everything remains as is.”
Green Room - "The voices will be pacified."
Red Room - "Backs will be turned against the glass wall."
Purple Room - "Unincisiveness will be punished."
Blue Room - "Fates could change."
Yellow Room - "The voices will also protect."
Dark Room - "Silence will be punished"
Orange Room - "Noise will muddle the voices."
Pink Room - "All eyes will look across the glass wall."
Grey Room - "Uncertainty will be punished."
Teal Room - "The shield will rise."
