Mafia: Trials and Tribulations [Thread 2] - Day 7 (4/17) - Mafia Win!

Welcome to Mafia: Trials and Tribulations, hosted by @Arete, @Geyde, and @Arctic and reviewed by @Osieorb18!


  • Follow the Global Rules and Forum Game Rules.
    • To ensure the game runs smoothly, players who fail to meet the requirement of 15 substantive, on-topic posts will be immediately replaced. Players who zero-post in the first 24 hours of a day phase without informing the hosts in advance may also be replaced (if you must miss the first 24 hours, inform the hosts). These requirements may be adjusted if the day ends early due to majority.
  • Refrain from excessive ATE (appeals to emotion). Excessive ATE includes, but is not limited to, statements that directly say or imply that something in the game is having a negative impact on someone’s out of game relationships or well-being. Ordinary manipulation is still allowed.
  • I will be closely monitoring the thread for toxicity, harassment, and excessive ATE. However, please do not hesitate to bring problematic posts to my attention if you believe I missed them.
  • Alts are allowed, but you must inform the hosts of your identity.


The setup is CLOSED. All roles will be based on characters from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Trials and Tribulations. Flavor is not alignment indicative, but may be role-indicative. Flavor knowledge is helpful but not required; the game MAY contain spoilers for games in the Ace Attorney original trilogy.

Additionally, the following information about the setup is public:

  • There are two factions, Town and Mafia. There are no third parties or alignment changing effects. There are four members of the Mafia.
  • The Town win condition is “Eliminate the Mafia.” The Mafia win condition is “Reach parity with the Town.”
  • This game is rolemadness. There are no vanilla roles.
  • All flips will be truthful and include alignment. However, information may be redacted from them.
  • There may be roles that cause investigators to receive false results, such as Godfathers or Millers.
  • The Mafia have a mandatory, assigned factional kill, which may be performed alongside other night actions. It may not be used on members of the Mafia.
  • Unless otherwise specified, players may use only one action in a single night and one action in a single day.
  • Unless otherwise specified, players may not self-target with actions.
  • Unless otherwise specified, players will not be notified of their action being prevented in any way or their target being changed. The exception to this is players using investigative abilities.
  • There may be additional hidden mechanics not discussed in the OP.

Sample role PMs:


The Judge

Town Instant Game-winner

“In order to fully understand that world, first we have to immerse ourselves in it completely.”

Example (Passive): You are an example role, and will not appear in the game.
Ruler of the Courtroom (Night): Instantly end the game in a Town victory. (1 use)
Eliminate the Mafia.

Court Profiles

  • Every night, all players may submit two lists, a Truth List, of players they believe are Town, and a Deception List, of players they believe are Mafia.
  • Players do not need to include all living players on their lists.
  • In a given submission, a player may only include a given other player on one list, not both. If they include a player on both lists, that player will be removed from both lists.
  • Players may not submit themselves as part of either list. If they include themselves, they will be removed from the list.
  • If a player fails to submit a list, this will be treated as if they had submitted a blank list with no one on it.


  • Days are 48 hours unless majority is reached early and nights are 24 hours. SoD/EoD will occur at 2022-01-01T21:00:00Z on the relevant day (4:00 PM EST).
  • All actions (day or night) will lock 2 hours before the scheduled end of the phase. Actions submitted after this point will not be counted.
  • Executions are majority and plurality.
  • No-execute is a valid vote, and may be hammered to end the day early. In cases where no-execute and another vote are tied at the end of the day, no-execute will have priority in the rand. In all other cases of a tie, the execution will be determined at random from among the tied players.
  • Self-votes are considered valid votes.
  • Votes are locked in LyLo, but NOT in MyLo. For this purpose, the determination of LyLo ONLY takes into account the number of living members of the Town and Mafia, and NOT additional killpower.
  • All votes must be in the form /vote [name of player] to be considered valid, and all unvotes must be in the form /unvote . Additionally, votes must ping the host account. Votes that do not follow this format will not be counted.
  • The Mafia will communicate through a private Discord server.

SoD4 flavor

May 25, 2:58 PM
District Court – Defendant’s Lobby

As the sun rose, the twelve survivors reconvened outside the courtroom. All of them breathed, or feigned, a sigh of relief at the sight of all of them still alive.

“Well, let’s get started, then!” said the Judge, coming up behind them. “Lead the way!” He gestured to a young man with white hair, strangely short and wearing some sort of hybrid of a suit vest and a child’s dress.

The man smiled at him and pulled open the door to Courtroom 8. As he did so, there was a sharp, loud pop, and the man fell over, a red stain blossoming on his shirt.

“Wait, isn’t that the guy who got shot two days ago?” someone said. “Real bad luck there, I guess.”

Yet even as she spoke, the young man transformed before them, his white hair melting away into brown hair, tied up in a bow, and the person lying on the ground no longer a man in his thirties but a child, who scarcely looked to be nine years old.

“Bailiff!” said the Judge. “There’s a nine year old bleeding out in the lobby!”

“Yeah, I can’t really do much about that,” said the bailiff. “We’ve already called an ambulance, either they’ll make it or they won’t.”

The speaker from before looked at the crowd with fury in her eyes. “She’s a child,” said the speaker. “Or – was – I don’t actually know. Look, the point is, you can give me all the rationalizations you want about how you don’t have a choice, but I find it really hard to believe anyone here – whether you’re a terrorist, or whether you’re trying to practice mob justice, or what – has a valid reason to kill a child!”

The speaker left her words hanging in the air as she stalked into the courtroom, followed by the remaining others – eleven in total, now, after what had happened. They had work to do.

Night 3 has ended. Atlas has died in the night. He was:

Pearl Fey

Town Universal Backup

“I, umm… I’m not very good at reading.”

Kurain Channelling Technique (Night): Inherit the role of a dead member of the Town, including ability uses and other restrictions if applicable. This happens instantly and cannot be roleblocked. You may use an ability in the same cycle as you inherit a role, if possible. (1 use)
Eliminate the Mafia.

At the time of his death, he had inherited the following role:


Town Bodyguard

“I tried to avert my eyes from the truth… to escape from the harshness of reality.”

Protect (Night): Target a player. If they are attacked tonight, you will die in their place. If you die due to this ability, you cannot be protected. (Infinite uses)
Eliminate the Mafia.

Day 4 begins and will end in 48 hours, at 2022-05-27T20:00:00Z. With 11 players alive, majority is 6.
