Mafia 72.5 - Down In The Projects

Recommended Posts

Gods, this is too confusing. I'm gonna just stick my vote back on Rawls, based on the process of elimination; Carver's and Hauk's reveals (and retractions) are too weird for FM play, and I can't believe that McNulty would have voted for Moreland in that scrum if they were partnered.

Where the hell are Carver and Hauk anyway?

with so few people seeming around, and me having to go out for an hour, I guess I have to seal Rawls fate. I have liuttle in the way of suspicion OR trust for him (yes, wishy washy fence sitting), but a no lynch is worse than an innocent lynch right now.

Things were heating up in Something-Or-Other Precinct in West Baltimore. After their very own Detective McNulty turned out to be a spy, the surviving detectives were getting nervous. No sign of Avon anywhere, even after they'd combed the streets of Baltimore doing...um, typical narc officer stuff. I can't write gritty urban police procedurals, so I'm hoping no one will notice that this scene sucks if I cram it with as many bad in-jokes and "ironic" meta references as possible. They knew that anyone could be the last killer.

"This is fucking ridiculous," said Major Rawls, in what I hope is in-character dialogue, because this is The Wire and everyone curses up a blue streak. "None of you lazy bastards has put in a day's work to solve the case, except for Moreland. That's why I'm voting Moreland. No real detective in this force would be that competent. He must be one of Barksdale's boys."

"I agree with your logic," said Detective Moreland. "Rawls, for being the only one remotely close to my post count."

They stared at each other and waited. And waited.

Hauk and Carver both looked unsteady on their feet, but every time Dep. Chief Burrell approached them to check for signs of life, they motioned that they were fine.

Twenty hours later, they realized that they were down to the wire (haha), and no one had done anything all day.

"Oh, screw this," said Detective Greggs. "Hauk and Carver are both so batshit insane that they'd never last in the drug underworld. I'll just vote Rawls, because Detective Moreland always brings tasty donuts to work, and I'm a crazy speed-eater Moreland is cleared by the Day Two lynch mob."

"Rawls it is," said Hauk.

And so the detectives ignored all the dead weight on their team and decided to lynch their very own commander, Major Rawls...

...except actually, that wasn't such a bad idea after all, because Rawls was a very guilty Gert. Innocents somehow win, despite having tried their very hardest not to win all game.

Woohoo! :cheers:

This is the first Mafia game that I've actually survived, much less won; usually my crapness gets me lynched on about day 2...

At least I made you guys work for it ... ok, I made Piper work for it.

Yeah, it was funny seeing everyone act so shocked that the innocents had so many roles, because the game was actually balanced in favour of the FM (giving you the guard was a mistake). But luck was on the innocents' side.

For what it's worth, I didn't make that post to mess with you. But that side effect was hilarious. :lol:
