    This one is a little different, but I think you'll love it. Pun intended.

    LOVERS
    In Lovers Mafia, every player has at least one Lover.

    A Lover is a player who is linked to you and whom you can have private, out-of-thread discussions with, but whose alignment you do not know. They could be Mafia or they could be Town. What you do know is that if you or your Lover is lynched, then both of you will die, Romeo & Juliet style.

    Only people directly Lovered to the lynch target will die with them.

    Each player will have at least one person they are in love with and most will have someone who is in love with them, depending on numbers. That means three people die on your average lynch, but as number dwindle we will see independents whose lovers have died indirectly.

    There are a few different scenarios based on these mechanics. Take players A, B, and C.

    A loves B and C loves A, but B does not love C.

    A <3 B
    C <3 A
    C </3 B

    If A is lynched: All three die.
    If B is lynched: A and B will die.
    If C is lynched: A and C will die.

    Back to the basics.

    Mafia games consist of two opposing factions: One good team (the Town) and one evil team (the Mafia). The objective of the Town is to eliminate all the members of the Mafia, thereby securing the safety of the town, whereas the objective of Mafia is achieving equal numbers with the Town, at which point they can't lose a lynch vote.

    All members of the Town are informed only of their own identity; they have no idea what roles other players in the game may have. The Mafia, on the other hand, has the advantage that they all know each other’s identities. However, the town starts the game with more members than the mafia. For example, in a 9-player game, you might expect there to be 2 mafia and 7 townies. The game is often referred to as a battle between the uninformed majority (the Town) and the informed minority (the Mafia).

    The game comes down to whether the Town can sniff out the members of the Mafia before it is too late!

    I am going to run it as either a 13-player game with 5 mafia and 8 town, or a 16-player game with 6 mafia and 10 town.

    Who's game?

    I'll probably be useless again and get lynched but I'll join.

    lol, well I know I played a spectacularly terrible game last time, but I'll go ahead and tentatively join up. Hopefully, I learned a little something and this time I'll only fail 75% of the time instead of the whopping 100% fail I was last time. XD

    Haha, I just hope I'm not gif-worthy this time. :p Anything better than that and I'll be okay with myself. XD

    Don't let me the man get you down. Failing spectacularly is better than idling, and it is the players who make the biggest mistakes that make the biggest progress. And we can laugh about it!

    Probably not, considering I am going on vacation with family within the time it would actually be played. Perhaps the next one, considering these seem to be going fairly smoothly. Glad you're keeping this going btw.
