GTF Mafia XXVIII - Overwatch Role Madness

Image


Over thirty years after the Omnic Crisis, Winston was attacked by operatives of the infamous organization, Talon. After the attack, Overwatch reformed into what it is today, albeit a shadow of its former self. With the rise of Sombra, the need for peace grows ever stronger. With her ability to hack Overwatch operatives onto her side, a second Crisis looms ahead.

As Sombra hacks more members into Talon, Soldier: 76 plans a full assault onto the enemy. He's called for every operative he can get his hands on, before it's too late.

---------------------------------------------------------------------


Hosted by Cobalt and Corrdorr!


General Idea
A number of players are thrown into a situation where you don't know who to trust. There are two teams: the Civilians and the Mafia.

There are two phases: Day and Night. During Day, all players deliberate and submit a vote on a player. The player with the most votes is lynched and eliminated from the game. During Night, the mafia deliberate to kill and eliminate a player from the game. The civilians win the game once all mafia have been eliminated. The mafia win the game once their numbers are equal to or greater than the number of civilians.

Game Size
24 Players.
18 Overwatch operatives
6 Talon members
NOTE: If Roadhog or Junkrat is drafted into Mafia, the other will also join. In this case, the team composition will be 17/7. Read further to understand.

Roles
This is an open setup Role Madness game. There are no vanilla townies or mafia goons. There will be some roles you've seen before, and some you haven't. Some roles are built with the Overwatch game itself in mind. When all roles have been randomized, Sombra, Widowmaker, and Reaper will have 24 hours to deliberate amongst themselves and select three teammates from the roster of roles, not players.

The roles that the mafia team selects will receive their role pm with their Talon ability, and will be recruited into the mafia chat. The rest of the players will receive their role with their Overwatch ability. (For players whose abilities are the same as both alignments, they will be told their alignment.)

Note: The four top roles on the list that do not have a Talon ability listed will always be aligned with Overwatch, and cannot be converted.

[Reveal] Spoiler: Roles!
Mercy (Revivor / One-shot Bulletproof)
Overwatch - Resurrect: Each player will remain in stasis for 1 cycle (day/night) after they die. At any point, you may activate your ultimate ability and instantly restore one of those players back into the game. If they had any stocks or abilities, they will keep them, but this will not restore abilities that have been already used up. You can only use this once.
- Guardian Angel: You automatically fly towards a distant ally, avoiding danger. You can survive one kill attempt.

Soldier: 76 (Cop)
Overwatch - Tactical Visor: Your visor detects members of Overwatch who have defected to Talon. You can select a player each night and find out their alignment.

Reinhardt (Medic)
Overwatch - Energy Shield: Your shield and armour are built for war, protecting your comrades. Select a player each night. They are protected from Night Kills.

Tracer (Jack of All Trades)
Overwatch - Recall: If ever you or a friend is stuck in a sticky situation, you can instantly retrace your steps back to safety. You can protect yourself or another from a kill attempt once.
- Blink: You can zip around in a blind of an eye, relatively unnoticed. You have enough power to investigate a player at night once.
- Pulse Bomb: You are prepared just in case you manage to find an enemy. You may stick a pulse bomb on a player during a night phase once. The targeted player dies.
(You may only use one ability per Night phase.)

--------------------------------------------------------------

Reaper (One-shot Strongman)
Talon - Death Blossom: During the night, you materialise at your target, spraying a myriad of shotgun shells at them. This amplifies the night kill to be successful regardless of protection. You can only use this once.
- Triple Kill: During Night, instead of the usual Talon kill, you may name three players and guess which role each of those players hold. If all three guesses are correct, those players will die that Night. No kill will occur if you guess incorrectly.

Widowmaker (Mafia Role Cop)
Talon - Infra-sight: You wear specialty headgear designed to keep enemies in your sight. Select a target during Night Phase. You will be told their role.
- Triple Kill: During Night, instead of the usual Talon kill, you may name three players and guess which role each of those players hold. If all three guesses are correct, those players will die that Night. No kill will occur if you guess incorrectly.

Sombra (Roleblocker)
Talon - Hack: Your enhancements and technological superiority have given you the unique ability to hack living things. You may hack a target each night phase, and any active ability they have will be nullified for that phase.

----------------------------------------------------

Ana (One-shot Triple Vote Amplifier OR Silencer)
Overwatch - Nano Boost: You have a combat booster mounted on your arm. When applied to a player, they will receive triple voting powers for that day. Only they are aware of this and the extra votes will not appear in vote tallies. You can only use this once.
Talon - Sleep Dart: You carry a sidearm equipped with potent chemicals that causes your target to fall asleep. The target you choose each night is silenced and may not post for the following day phase.

Bastion (Undetectable; Vote Multiplier OR One-shot Day Vigilante)
Both - Reconfigure: As a siege automaton, you have the unique ability to change your shape and use in battle. You can only change form once every two phases, and can only do so at night.
- Configuration: Recon: This is Bastion’s standard and default configuration. While in this form, you appear as a regular Omnic. Your alignment is undetectable until you change your configuration.
Overwatch - Configuration: Sentry: This configuration is for the long battle ahead. If your target the same lynch candidate on consecutive day phases, you get bonus votes on them. This stacks up to three votes total, and these are invisible to everyone else.
Talon - Configuration: Tank: This configuration is for aggressive battle. You may select a player during any Day phase, and the chosen player will die. You may only use this ability once.

D.Va (One-shot Bulletproof OR Mafia Bomb)
Overwatch - Meka: Your first death will not kill you, instead your mech will fail and you will be ejected, and continue the game.
Talon - Self-Destruct: Upon being lynched, you may choose one player who voted for you to be killed as well. Upon being killed, your attacker will also die.

Genji (Rival & One-shot Deflector)
Both - Bad Blood: You must outlive the man who ruined your life and put you in this cybernetic prison; your older brother, Hanzo. If either Overwatch or Talon wins the game, the game will continue until one of the rivals is dead.
- Deflect - You are deft with your blade. You draw your sword and automatically reflect any ability that targets you on one night of your choosing.

Hanzo (Rival & Watcher)
Both - Bad Blood: You must outlive the one who brought dishonor to the family name; your younger brother, Genji. If either Overwatch or Talon wins the game, the game will continue until one of the rivals is dead.
- Sonic Arrow - You are equipped with a myriad of arrows for different uses. You can use your Sonic Arrow at night to determine who targeted your chosen player, but not the action.

Junkrat (Lover & One-shot Passive Nullifier)
Both - Steel Trap: You are paranoid of followers, as you’ve lived your life in crime. As you rest for the night, you set a steel trap nearby. Should a player use abilities on you during the night phase the trap activates, interrupting them. You will be told if your trap activates, and may no longer use it afterward.
- Criminals in Arms: You and Roadhog have had many years of partnership between you two. You must be on the same team as Roadhog, and share an individual chat with him.

Roadhog (Lover & Two-shot Roleblocker)
Both - Chain Hook: The dreaded hook that instils fear in everyone’s hearts; choose a target during the night. If they use their ability, it automatically fails. You may use this once.
- Criminals in Arms: You and Junkrat have had many years of partnership between you two. You must be on the same team as Junkrat, and share an individual chat with him.

Lúcio (Motivator)
Both - Speed Boost: You tunes make everybody feel good. Choose a target during the night phase. They have an extra stock of their ability to use, but it must be used that night. You may use this twice.

McCree (Vigilante OR Vote Suppressor)
Overwatch - Peacekeeper: You have 3 kill stocks to use during the night phase. You may only shoot one target each night.
Talon - Flash Bang: Select a player during the night. You stun the player, making them incapable of voting the next Day phase. When they game hits 8 players, you can no longer use your flash bang.

Mei (Pacifist OR Obstructor)
Overwatch - Ice Wall: You erect giant walls of ice around the battlefield, nullifying all potential kills for the night. You may do this once.
Talon - Blizzard: You call upon a snowstorm, ending the day phase early. Nobody is lynched, but any abilities prepared that day still activate. You may do this once.

Orisa (Oneshot Invulnerable)
Both: Fortify: When you choose to activate this ability, you become immune to all abilities that would negatively affect you for one night phase, including kills. You may only activate this ability once.

Pharah (Oneshot Day Vigilante OR Redirector)
Overwatch - Barrage: You unleash a flurry of rockets on an unsuspecting target. During any day phase, you may select a target and they will be killed. You may only do this once.
Talon - Concussive Blast: Select a target at night. If they use their ability, your blast knocks them about and in another direction. Their target is now randomized. You may use this twice.

Symmetra (Delayed Jack of All Trades)
Both - Sentry Turrets: You build a sentry turret out of light each Night Phase. When you hit three turrets (after three nights), you may use them to kill a target at any time, during the day or at night.
- Photon Barrier: On the second Night Phase you gain use of the Photon Barrier. It acts as a one shot kill-proof, and can be used on anyone including yourself.
- Teleporter: On the third Night Phase, you gain use of the teleporter. When activated, it randomizes the targets of all actions the following Night Phase. This is announced publicly, and you must activate it during the Day so that it can be announced at the beginning of the Night phase.

Torbjörn (Tracker OR Bulletproof)
Overwatch - Motion Detector: Your turrets come fully equipped with the best detection technology. Select a player each night, and you will be notified of the identity of their target, if they targeted someone. This will not track the night kill.
Talon - Molten Core: Your powerful molten heart stops you from dying by conventional means. You may only die from being lynched.

Winston (Bodyguard OR Revenge Killer)
Overwatch - Jump Pack: Select a target. If they are targeted for a kill during the night phase, you throw themselves in front of them and die instead.
Talon - Primal Rage: If you are a target of an ability, you go into a frenzy. You are still affected by the ability, but you kill the player who used it. This only works once.

Zarya (Absorber)
Overwatch - Projected Barrier: Select a target. If an ability is used on them the following night phase, you gain that stock to use yourself. You may use this once.
Talon - Particle Barrier: Select a target. If you are the target of an ability that night, you gain that stock to use yourself. You may use this once.

Zenyatta (Temporary Tree Stump; Passive Guard OR Vote Inflictor)
Both - Transcendence: Upon your choosing during Day, you have a sudden moment of Zen, becoming immune to everything for one day and night phase. You cannot post, vote, or use your other abilities while transcending. You may only use this once, and you cannot use it when there are six or less players remaining in the game.
Overwatch - Orb of Harmony: Select a target during the night phase. They are immune to silencing, stunning, roleblocking, or anything that would nullify their ability for the following night phase.
Talon - Orb of Discord: Select a target during the night phase. If that target has any lynch votes on them the following day, the discord orb acts as a +2 to that vote. This will be invisible to the rest of the game.



Phases
One whole cycle (Day and Night) will amount to 48 hours. The Day phase will last 36 hours, starting from 10:00 AM EST and ending at 10:00 PM EST the following day. The Night phase will last 12 hours, starting from 8:00 PM EST and ending at 8:00 AM EST the following morning.

Posting is allowed during all phases.

Voting
Votes must be submitted in the thread using the following format: Lynch Player. Bold and Underline and RED so we can see it while making tallies. No Lynch is a valid voting option. Votes may be changed as many times as you want - the last submitted vote is what will be counted. Votes for the Day phase will not be accepted after deadline.
NOTE FOR EXPERIENCED PLAYERS: PLEASE MAKE THEM RED NOW. THANKS. :heart:

Elimination
Once you have been lynched or killed, your allegiance and role will be revealed. You may no longer post in the game thread nor are you allowed to coach any remaining players. You will only be invited to the observation chat after your 1 cycle of stasis has passed and it is no longer possible for you to be resurrected.

Disqualification & Rules
  • All players must post five (5) posts of substance in the game thread during each Day phase. All those who do not will be warned or disqualified and replaced with substitutes. "Posts of substance" refers to posts that contribute to the group discussion or provide ideas, insight or evidence. One-liners and "fluff" posts will not be counted toward this total.
  • Missing a vote will result in a warning. Missing a second vote will DQ you from the game. These missed votes no longer need to be consecutive. Miss two and you're done. Sporadic inactivity is just as bad as constant inactivity. There is no reason a placeholder vote cannot be placed early, or a no lynch vote to be changed later.
  • Editing a post will result in a warning. Editing a second post will DQ you from the game.
  • Do not PM anyone playing the game about the game. If I find out, it will result in an automatic DQ.
  • Do not post any screenshots or direct quotes of PMs I send you. That will result in an automatic DQ.
  • If for some extenuating circumstance you need to leave the game, talk to me about it and we will try to sub someone in for you. If you do not have time to dedicate to the game, please do not sign up.
  • Harassment of another player in any form outside the context of the game thread will result in an immediate modkill. This is a zero tolerance policy.
  • Threats of leaving the game or disqualification, as well as encouraging other players to forfeit or concede, will not be permitted. You may be warned, but I reserve the right to DQ at my discretion.

Starting Date
This game is estimated to begin around Monday, July 10th.

IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ:
IF YOU DIE, YOU COULD STILL BE REVIVED THE FOLLOWING ROUND.
Because of this, if you are eliminated you will not be invited into the spectator chat straight away. There is a limbo period of a full cycle (1 day/ 1 night).

HOUSE CUP POINTS!!!
- Players who are members of the House Cup will receive 2 points for simply signing up for the game and playing actively. If you aren't active and disqualify or replace out, your points will be revoked.
- At the end of the game, the hosts will rank players from A to D, with a special S rank for only one person which lies above A. Rank A players, if they are participating in the House Cup, will receive 20 points for their team! If a House Cup player achieves the S rank, they will receive 50 points! Ranks are based on the hosts' assessment of how well each person played.

Good luck and have fun!

Also, just a question about roles that have abilities that we can use during the day phase: If it's not specified that we have to disclose that we used the ability (thereby revealing our roles), then how exactly would that work? I mean sure we can pm you or Corey, but with certain abilities, timing would be pretty integral. Does that mean that if we want to ensure that our ability is used during the day without blowing our cover we can pm you the night phase before it to say that we're going to use it?
I finally found something to put here!

For dayvig kills it will just appear as "x player was killed", and flavor will not indicate which role performed the action. What other day actions are you referring to?

If you're worried about timing the day kills there are multiple avenues to reach Corey or I during the game and response shouldn't take too long.

See GTF Mafia VII, Harry Potter, for a similar role madness setup wherein the mafia team chooses their teammates and there's a triple kill.

I can tell you from the start that numbers will probably be an issue, so I'll put you and Matty both down as substitutes for now and put you in right away if it looks like it won't fill up in a few days. Thanks! :heart:

If the player that achieves the 'S' rank isn't formally aligned to any particular team (say, hypothetically a Host or House Cup Judge) are they able to 'donate' the points to the team/s and player of their choice?
