LOOKING FOR HIRE

I don't know if anyone will read this posting. I'm desperate for work, and I resent having to write this like a beggar desperately looking for money.

I am a 41-year-old former freelance private detective with upwards of 20 years of experience in the law enforcement field. I was working on a high-profile case when my employer suddenly fired me. He paid me a lot of money, more than I ever expected to earn from any single case. One day, however, he fired me on the spot, saying he found a better group to investigate. When I returned to the police station where I worked as a cop, all the former staff had been cycled out and none of them would give me a position.

It's been months since I've last worked, and the money I earned working on the aforementioned case has since dwindled. Winter is approaching, and I will be unable to pay to heat my home or even feed my family. I have a beautiful wife and two daughters, and I can't afford to not care for them. They're all I have. Please help a man at his wit's end and his financial end. My number is written below. Investigative jobs preferred, but I'll take anything I can get.

- V.B.
[NUMBER REDACTED]

There's a good chance if you're reading this, you've seen that above post of mine. As this new job requires me to travel and it's not in the prettiest place in the world, I'm going to keep a record of all that happens to me. Should something happen to me, I want this record sent to the police and to my family back in my hometown.

[ADDRESS REDACTED]

Enough of the necessary information and executive orders above. Let me tell you about myself and my situation.

My name is Vincent Blanchard. I'm a private investigator for hire, and former police officer. I had a good run as an enforcer of the law until a bullet through the leg put me out of a job for six months. That was when I took up private work, and I ended up doing that full time for years.

My last line of work was with the Ultramanious family, those rich business tycoons we've all come to love or hate. I was the investigator assigned to Diana's disappearance. I had interviewed the witnesses, collected data, found a few leads - I was making excellent progress on the news story of the year. All of a sudden, amidst a resurgence in crime in Silver Hills and an apparent scandal regarding the expansion practices of the company, I was fired by Richard himself. I returned to the police force I used to work with, but positions were jammed shut with temporary workers hired to combat a sudden rise in crime.

I think it's all connected. Nobody believes me. And now I'm an older man out of work in the dead of winter. My wife and daughters won't have food or heating for what's set to be the harshest winter on record. I was at the end of my rope, and that's when I accepted a position as a cafe cashier.

Of all places, the one job I could find was in Caribou's Den.

Caribou's Den is the northernmost city on the continent, nestled between an arctic sea and the harsh, unforgiving mountains of the treacherous, uncharted regions behind them. You need a light jacket in the summers and going outside during winter blizzards isn't an option. The only reason to live anywhere near that icebox is the prosperous nature of the city. Meatpacking's the dominant industry, and both corporations and privately owned businesses thrive. Thankfully, my job isn't in a slaughterhouse. Not my kind of thing. Just hoping it pays enough to cover my commuter costs, especially with the tolls in Whitewash City being through the roof.

I suppose Caribou's Den isn't the worst place to work. When I drove up here to see the place, however, something wasn't right. There was an uncomfortable tension hovering in the air. The small business owners weren't happy with the corporate takeovers in progress, and the representative from the industrial side didn't have nice things to say himself. The tension's like a tightly wound cord that could snap at any given moment.

I'm on my way there for my first day of work. Here's hoping nothing goes down until I can get back on my feet and back into law enforcement.




tehpilot presents
frozen hearts mafia
a forum mafia game

(fancy banner coming soon)

Hey guys! I'm Pilot, and welcome to the next mafia game of my own machinations. I was the designer and moderator of Radiotower Mafia, and I was the mastermind behind games like Potato Cult Mafia and Retrocausality Mafia 2 for those of you coming from other forums.

Frozen Hearts Mafia is a balanced, closed-setup mafia game for 19 players. As with all of my games, there may be some unusual or non-standard role mechanics in place. The following, however, are guarantees:
  • No alignment changing mechanics
  • No third party, game-ending win conditions
  • No cults or jester roles
This game's setup has been checked by Dragon Fogel and designed in conjunction with amosmyn. Both have give their approval.

General Mafia Rules
  1. Massclaiming is unadvised. Having a lot of players reveal their roles at once generally takes all the fun out of the game, nor will it help you to begin with. Don't do that.
  2. Day cycles will be 120 hours long, and nights will be 48 hours long. Extensions may be granted in specific circumstances.
  3. Make sure you bold or color your votes. If you do both that works too!
  4. Any player-to-moderator communication (or vice versa) should be done in the relevant Quicktopic. Quicktopics are controlled discussions that help the game run smoothly and securely.
  5. Don't copy and paste from your Quicktopic, this is punishable by modkill for the stability threat it produces.
  6. Do not share your Quicktopics with anyone, and try not to talk about game-related details outside of the game.
  7. Refrain from editing or deleting your posts. Vincent has enough trouble writing it all down, don't make him cross out and erase.
  8. When you die, you are permitted one "bluh" post. This post should be spoilered, and should not contain any game-relevant information.
  9. Please don't talk during night cycles.
  10. Day Activation Rule - In the event a day activation is claimed (someone using a role power in the day), assume day has ended and it is nighttime. The game will resume once I have intervened and resolved the action. DO NOT FAKE DAY ACTIVATIONS.
  11. Refrain from ciphering or concealing your posts.
  12. Maintain a reasonable level of activity (minimum of one post per day). Replacement will be used for players who fail to post for a 72-hour timespan, with a prod both 24 and 48 hours into that timeframe.
  13. Remember, this is a game! Play to have fun and play to win. We're all friends here.
I'd like to get this game started around June 14th. Due to prior travel arrangements, an early start will not take place.

PLAYER LIST [19/19]
All main slots are filled! Replacements always welcome (and in demand).

REPLACEMENT PLAYER LIST [1/??]
When a player is eligible for replacement, all those on the Replacement Player List will be messaged. The first person to respond gets the slot. If nobody is on the Replacement Player List or the those on the list do not respond in a timely manner, replacement kills will be enabled.

Any player whose name is grayed out (but not stricken out) can be replacement killed. To do so, simply post in the thread with Replacement Kill: <playername>. You will receive your Quicktopic(s) and information as soon as possible.

You failed in radio tower?

Donut I challenge that, I clearly failed way harder than you.

Actually, now that I think about it my track record in Pilot games is not stellar to begin with. Maybe this will change things?

Donut has the dubious honor of being town's only flavor survivor - you can't just kill a little girl after a full week of what happened in Radiotower.

Jackson "Palamedes" Duskbrood, however, had it coming to him. ;3

This game's all set to go aside from the writing, whereas kitchen utensils!mafia will probably need more time. You can think of this game as an appetizer.

...Well, more like a frozen TV dinner with a lot of melancholy and dread written into it that leaves you hungering for a more satisfying, robust mafia experience.

If I'm still alive after seven weeks or so, then I will have to be replacement killed. Otherwise,

The wizard is in!
(Filthy Elven wizard necromancer isn't one of the excluded roles, so...)
