Code: Select all
Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the town
The people were stirring, for prices were down.
The merchants laid out their best goods with care,
In hopes that consumers soon would be there.
And as soon as the mall opened their doors,
Last-minute shoppers rushed through the stores,
All eager to buy what their children would need,
Be it My Little Pony or Assassin's Creed.
'Round the tree in the center the crowd intermingled
To fake joyful tunes and stale Christmas jingles.
But before any shoppers could take out their cash,
The songs were drowned out by the sound of a crash.
Everyone looked for the source of the clatter,
And it soon became clear what was the matter.
Up above was a hole in the glass dome of the mall,
And on the ground lay Santa's sleigh, presents and all.
There lay Dasher, and Dancer, and Prancer, and Vixen
Dead next to Comet, Cupid, poor Donner, and Blitzen.
And not far away from the remains of the deer,
A red-suited corpse confirmed the worst fears.
The horrible sight gave everyone pause,
As they wondered what had happened to poor Mister Claus.
But then someone saw by his head a large brick,
And declared that someone had it in for Saint Nick.
What was more, round his neck was draped a large banner,
Tied in what looked like a most unsafe manner.
Unfurling it revealed the words "Happy Holidays",
And it became clear to all who was behind this foul play.
For no Christmas-lover could do such a deed,
And the answer was clear to all who could read.
It was the work of those who denied Christmas' worth,
The PC police, the scum of the earth.
Time was short, and all were in a pinch;
The only solution left was the lynch.
Everyone knew the stakes of this fight:
A Merry Christmas to all, or death in the night.

This is Christmas-Themed Reverse Mafia.
Love it. Join it.
You'll know your job. You either team up with those bastards who want to put an end to any and all Christmas celebrations or you'll be fighting ON THE SIDE OF JESUS, armed with the powerful spirit of Christmas!!
Signups were out earlier, but THEY ARE STILL OPEN for we need to gather as many people as we can to save the coming festivities. I don't want us to keep on playing all the way through January, though, so they'll close fairly soon-ish and will have short day phases (48 hours or so).
THERE WILL BE GIMMICKS. PREPARE FOR IT. (but definitely not a grand scale gimmicks game; it's still mafia)
What we're going to use in terms of roles is still tentative. It will all depend on the number of signups, so we can create a balanced game. JESUS IS A CONFIRMED CHARACTER, though. Expect your favourite Christmas terrors to be present on the other side (Scrooge? The Grinch?? RUDOLPH?!?)

Satel - JESUS; mafia; immunity to roleblocking and inspections. it takes one less vote to get Jesus lynched
