Close Circle Sign-Ups - Matthew - 08-15-2021

Welcome to Crunch City. A city, which like most of the big name American cities, has its glitz and glamor. A popular spot for vacation, with big name entertainment with the football team The Crunch City Chokers, the theatre scene, a hot spot for gambling, a nice place to meet friends and hang out, and also a city known for its diverse population, bringing in all kinds of people from all over the world. Crunch City has it all. But of course like most of the major cities, Crunch City also has its own crime problem. With drug dealers, killers, thieves and gangs. And one of them being the crime lord named Carmello Bianchi. He's a man who's hungry for all the money and power the city has to offer. Quite ambitious, but knowing he can't do it alone, he has his consigliere Incognito (LavenderDream) to help run his organization. In addition, he's brought in 16 new people to work under him, to help him rise among the ranks and form one of the biggest criminal empires in Crunch City. The hard work they all have to put in aside, it seems simple, right? Wrong! Among his ranks of his 16 hires, there are four undercover cops, hired by corrupt Officer Frank Shannon, who have their own job; to kill off the 12 mafioso members and to take down Carmello and his entourage for good. And these people are all violent killers; they are most certainly not your friendly neighborhood policemen. Can Carmello become one of the biggest names in Crunch City and take out all his enemies? Or will Shannon's cops erase them all from the city limits? Whatever side you fall on, make sure your wits and your brawn are top-notch, otherwise this city will eat you alive!

Meet Your Hosts
   

Carmello Bianchi (Played by me): A power-hungry gangster who started off as a hitman before deciding to branch out to form his own criminal empire. He's made quite a name for himself so far, but now he's ready to take the next step and become the top dog of Crunch City, that is if the other criminals or corrupt cop Frank Shannon don't take him and his organization out first.

   

Incognito (Played by @LavenderDream): A serial killer who eventually go tired of killing people alone. Impressed by their handiwork, Carmello brought in Incognito as his personal consigliere. They are somebody he greatly respects for their smarts and killer instinct.



Gameplay
Close Circle is a mafia-style game, with 12 town players facing off against 4 scum players. The goal is for all the town to vote off the scum, while the scum tries to kill off the town. The town wins if all the scum get voted off, while the scum win if town members are equal or lesser than surviving scum. Initially, all alignments will have no special abilities to start off with, but will be able to gain some, buying them using money earned from completing challenges, to be described later.

Every day, there will be an investigation to figure out who killed the latest victim. The investigation will incorporate RNG rolls going from 1-10. And evidence can be destroyed if one gets enough bad rolls. If the players think they have enough evidence, they can call a meeting, where they will be taken to The Meeting Room and can vote off whoever they think is guilty of murder. And for added incentive, the money of the victim will be put to stake. If the innocents successfully vote off the killer, the money will be split between the surviving town. However, if an innocent gets voted off, then the money will go to the scum. And after this, there will be the daily challenges, where players will be given a series of tasks to complete and for a chance to earn money. The success of these tasks will be determined by RNG. Whoever has the highest score will win the biggest cash prize and immunity from kills during the night. However, for those who do not do the challenges by the time the deadline ends, they will not receive any cash prizes at all. The money the players earn will be PMed to the once night phase begins, which then they will get the chance to buy and use the abilities, which will be detailed below.



Abilities
Both town and scum members will have their own abilities to buy during night phase using cash players earned completing missions. After buying the abilities, players can choose to use the abilities or save them for another night. At the beginning of each night, players will get a PM stating how much money they have or any abilities they still have and can choose to do whatever. And note, just to keep things balanced, only one ability can be used at once. For example, if three players choose the Watcher ability, one will be picked randomly so their ability will take effect. However, the ones who don't get chosen will still keep their ability to be saved for another time, unless they get role-blocked, on which it will be gone forever. Both town and scum will have their own abilities to be used as well as the prices as follows:

TOWN

Watcher: (Costs $500) Any areas you think may be a hot spot for cops to come into? Then take charge and watch a room for the night. Whatever happens in there, you will see. Players who activate the ability will be able to watch one room for the night and whatever happens in the room, they will know. Cannot be used on consecutive days.

Protection: (Costs $700) Do you know someone whom you fear for their lives. They could use a little protection, just in case someone tried to off them, right. Put this into play to save them from any cops. Players can choose anyone of their choosing, which will save anyone that gets targeted by a Cop. Will not protect from Cleaner kills.

Background Check: (Costs $1000) Do you want to see if someone is on the level or do you suspect they might be one of the cops? Run a background check on the person and see how they're on your side. Players who run this ability picks a player of their choice and will find out if they're one of the Mafia or a Killer Cop.

Contract Killer: (Costs $1300) Does your gut instinct tell you that someone suspicious may be a Killer Cop, but they're still at large trying to off your guys. Then hire a contract killer to off that someone suspicious. Players who use this can target someone they think is a Killer Cop. If they are a Cop, they will get killed and you will live. But if they are a Mafia, they will live and you will die instead.

SCUM

The Blocker: (Costs $500) If you don't want to kill someone just yet, but rather you want to prevent someone from using their ability, this is the one for you to stop them dead in their tracks. Players can use this ability to block one from whatever ability they're using, if they're using it. And if they are, then they will waste the ability.

Investigator: (Costs $900) Do you want to see who has certain abilities and see if a player is dangerous or not? Use the Investigator ability and see what the player has in stock and discuss it among yourselves if the Mafia member needs killing. Players who use this can find out what abilities a town member has.

Cleaner: (Costs $1300) Do you think someone may be too dangerous to live, or maybe you just want a free kill. Hire the cleaner, and whoever you choose will disappear without a trace, no questions asked. Players who activate this ability can choose anyone to kill, no body, no evidence found. It cannot be used in consecutive days.



Rules
  1. No god-modding allowed. Your character is the only character you can control. No one else can change other characters or settings without the permission of the hosts and/or players (if it involves one of the players).
  2. No turbo-lurking allowed. It is expected that anyone who signs up to play this game to participate regularly as much as they can and not give out any meaningless posts just to skirt by. If two game days pass by without any significant posts from a player, their character will be killed off. If you can no longer participate, let the hosts know and a replacement will be sought.
  3. (For the scum) If you become a scum, it is expected that you kill someone everyday as it is your role in-game. One person has to be killed every night, so don't stall. Failure to kill someone when the night phase is up will result in one random player being killed off. It could be a town or a scum, so get killing. It will be in the best interest of everyone.
  4. While jerkassery is all right IC, it is stated however that you don't be a jerk to your players OOC. Be respectful and cool with your players.
  5. And while jerkassery and the occasional off-color comment is acceptable, no NSFW, inappropriate or otherwise disruptive actions (i.e. Bill's Brother or Elizabeth Afton) will be tolerated in-game.
  6. Remain in-character in thread.
  7. If you're dead, you can no longer post in the thread. You are still however free to spectate. However, do not give away the killers or any clues outside the thread. Otherwise, you will be permanently banned from the game.
  8. For anyone sending messages to the hosts, please send the messages to ALL TWO HOSTS (i.e. Me and LavenderDream), so we can all be in the loop and we can log all the actions within our private server as soon as possible.
  9. And above all else, have fun with your characters and the game.

RE: Close Circle Sign-Ups - Florien - 09-05-2021

Name(s): El Presidente (f)! (And Penultimo)

[Image: unknown.png]

Age: As old as the Revolutionary People's Democratic Republic of Tropico, but the love (and mandatorily voluntarily donated organs) of the people keeps them both looking young. (Penultimo is probably slightly younger though.)

Height, Weight, and Size: 5'10'' and 5'6' respectively, both probably weighing somewhere between 150 and 190 pounds.

Abilities: El Presidente has The Strength to carry Tropico through troubled times, The Sight to see insufficiently loyal citizens, the will to pull off some completely insane plots which usually work out surprisingly well all things considered, and an almost remarkable level of corruptibility. Also the loyalty of the Tropican Privateers, Commando Team, Spy Agency, and Hacking Professionals. (Oh, and Penultimo can swim while carrying at least a ton of gold away from an erupting volcano, so presumably he's pretty strong too.)

Other: El Presidente owns the moon. Also, El Presidente talks in High-Quality Tropican Red Smallcaps! while Penultimo talks in Blue Smallcaps.
