Quick Fix Game 14: Corruption in the Senate

Corruption in the Senate?

The Elendel Daily. 7th of Doxil, 194

Rumors have been flying fast and furious of corruption in the senate. Senators have been accused of embezzling senate funds, offering incentives to their own houses, vanishing troublesome opponents, and otherwise acting in shady and illegal ways. In an effort to deal with the situation, Governor Macmuller has called a conference, inviting several dozen senators and close friends to determine what should be done. It is unknown which senators he has invited, but we at Elendel Daily will be sure to report their names to you as soon as we discover them!

Constable-General Yosef, of the first precinct is in charge of security at the conference, and was quoted as saying, “ Will personally see that any corrupt Senator is brought to justice.” Yosef is noted to be a close friend of the Governor, and has a history of overkill when it comes to threats to the Governor. We pity anyone foolish enough to break the peace of this conference.

The newspaper was crumpled into a ball and thrown into the hearth as the reader yelled in frustration. “Why can’t he just leave well enough alone?”

Two senators sat in the office, one patient, the other scared. Patience relaxed at the desk, while Scared paced by the hearth. Both knew their illegal dealing would come to light at this conference they had been invited to.

“Don’t worry. I have plans to ensure he won’t discover us.” Patience unlocked a drawer on the desk and withdrew a vial of liquid. “I’ll have my aide slip a few drops of this into his drink, and he’ll die a quick, painless, natural death.”

“We’re already suspected of smuggling and embezzlement, now you want us arrested for murder?!”

“It’s either murdering him now, or life in jail and dishonour on our houses. The choice to me seems obvious. Macmuller must die. And when I replace him as governor, our illegal dealings can be easily swept under the rug.”

Scared sank down into one of the chairs before the desk and sighed. “Fine. We’ll do it. But this better not backfire.”

“No one will ever know. And if they do, we’ll remove them, as we’ve removed all the others.



Quick Fix rules are in effect. Each turn will be 24 hours long, and will feature a lynch. There are two teams, The Senate, who must arrest or kill all the Corrupt senators, and The Corrupt Senators, who must Arrest or kill all the Senators.

The game will begin on Tuesday, at 9pm PST. (One week, and about 5 hours from this post.)

The Lynch:
Classic rules. At least two votes to be lynched. If a player is lynched, she is sent to the Holding Cells beneath the Senate. Alignment will be revealed upon being arrested.

Ties are a bit different. In the case of a tie. I will flip a coin for each player. If Tails come up, that player is arrested. If Heads comes up. That player is freed. Yes, this means that multiple players can be arrested per cycle. At least four votes need to be involved in a tie for the coin flip to happen. So if two people are tied, they each need to have two votes or more. But if four or more people are tied, they only need one vote or more to have a coin flipped. (If you’re careful, you can get every player arrested in the first cycle.)

If a Player is successfully lynched, the Constables confiscate all their items except the bags of boxings. All boxings owned by the Constables will be distributed among the voters of a successful lynch.

The Holding Cells:
Where the Lynched players are. They all get a doc to communicate in. Players who have not been arrested or killed can start PM’s with these players. A list of who has a PM with what player will be posted at the start of each cycle. Unarrested players can still use items on jailed players. Jailed players can use those items against other jailed players.

PM’s:
Make sure to include me. Pm’s can only be one-on-one. You can have as many as you want.

Roles:
Corrupt Senator: Can communicate with their fellow corrupt in a doc. They do not have a group kill action.
Senator: No special actions.
Governor: You have three Votes. You can split them up, or put them all on the same person. Nobody starts with this role. Players must instead vote for a player to receive this role. The vote must be made in purple.The player to become Governor must have a majority(More than half) of all players votes. The Governor cannot be affect by any items, except the Execution (See; Bags of Boxings)

Items:
Players may use each item once. They may use all of their items at the same time, or save them. Once an item is used, it is given to the player it was used against. EX: If Mailliw drugs Wilson, then Wilson will be given the drugs, and can choose to drug someone else the next turn. You cannot give a player an item.

If a Player is killed by the Dagger, the dagger and all other items will go to a random person who voted for them. If nobody voted for the player, then all items will be confiscated by the Constables.

There are multiple of each item. Each player will start with at least one item

If a Player is arrested, their items will be confiscated by the Constables.

Dagger: One kill action. (Alignment will not be revealed)
Drug: A Drugged player may not talk in thread or in PM’s for one turn. Drugged Players will not be listed in the writeup.
Ledgers: Look through another Senator’s papers, and discover whether or not they're corrupt.
Medical Kit: Prevent one attack against a player. (Does not protect from Lynches)
Search Warrant: Steals all items and Gold a player has

Bag of Boxings:
1 bag: Change someone’s vote.
1 bag: Talk to an arrested player without your name being posted.
3 bags: Buy a random item from the Constables
3 bags: Bribe a player to target someone with their item.
5 bags: Buy a specific item from the Constables.
15 bags: Bribe the Constables to execute the Governor. Cannot be blocked.
30 bags: Bribe the Constables to execute all other players. You win. Your team does not.

Some prices will be determined by the number of players in the game.

Is the only way to get bags of boxings by being involved in a lynch?
Players start with Bags of boxings. They count as items.

Will drugged players be revealed in the writeup?
No. Which means that it is possible to fake being drugged.

If you start a PM with someone in the holding cells, will you keep that for the entire game? And if so, will you re-state that the PM exists every cycle?
Yes. You can use the same PM from turn to turn, but every turn will be reported in the writeup.

Can I give someone an Item or a Bag of Gold?
No. You have to use it on them.

Does the Medical Kit protect against Lynches?
Of course not. That make's no sense. They're being arrested, not killed.

Can I kill someone in Jail?
Yes.

Can I use any Item on someone in Jail?
Yes.

Can people in jail use items?
On other people in jail? Sure.

Can Players in Jail vote?
No.

What happens if two people bribe the same player to vote for someone?
Shenanigans happen. You'll have to try it and find out. (It involves a coin flip though.)

 

If I have multiple Bags of Boxings, can I bribe the same person multiple times?

Are there things you're not telling us?
Would you believe me regardless of my answer?

I think Elentari would be a fine name.

I actually have a character for this game! (Surprise!) And I'm going to actually keep that character for the whole game! (Double Surprise!)

So this is my PM-heavy character, who I also used in LG17. Unless I feel it is absolutely necessary, I will not post in the thread at all. I will create a PM with every player within the first couple of cycles. Up to you how much you know about my views. If I do, it will likely be only a vote. If you want explanation, PM me for it. And I'll be telling the players I voted upon why I voted on them, by default.

Other than that, there shouldn't be much change in me. I'm not really certain enough of this character to set up speech patterns, unfortunately.

I'm looking forward to this game!

Will drugged players be revealed in the writeup?

Players start with Bags of boxings. They count as items.

 

The Order of Actions is now in the Rules Clarifications post. It comes first. Before everything else. It's meant to act as a roleblock.

 

Will drugged players be revealed in the writeup?

No. Which means that it is possible to fake being drugged.

You can use the same PM from turn to turn, but every turn will be reported in the writeup.

 

Incidentally, does anyone have a better name for the thief's cloak?

Thieves Mark? Maybe it's a pin or something that you can attach to someone to mark them for thieves to rob?

Purse cutter, as in a person who cuts purses, or a tool that does the same? Asking because I've heard of the first but am unaware of anytool specifically called the second.

Yeah, that works. I'll still look for something better, but it works.

Maybe a "Giant Electromagnet"? Although... they don't have electricity yet, do they... I'll keep thinking.

Edit: How about "Search Warrant"? Or "Forged Search Warrant" or "Confiscation of Evidence Notice".

Search Warant is perfect. I'll update the rules with it when I get home.

Things that will be revealed in the writeup

Votes, arrests, deaths, prisoner PM's and Playerlists.

Things that might be hinted at in the writeup

If these things happen, they might be seen in the writeup, but they might not be. Players involved will not be revealed.

Druggings

Failed attacks due to medical kits

Boxings being used

Thefts

Does that mean that if I sign up as a character based off of Hillary Clinton, I have to do stuff for bags of boxings?

Edit: Oh, and leak some PMs.

I don't get this question. Why would you base a character off of Hillary Clinton? Everyone else is making original characters...
