Wrestling (Main Event) Mafia

All players will be asked to create their own wrestlers during an extended Night 0 using a pretty simple template, and subsequently receive alignments. Players will also be asked to identify their pre-existing relationships with other players through a series of questions such as "Which players coached you into how to take a fall?" "Which player is your former tag-team partner?" "Which player interfered and made it hard for your to get your attentions heard by the writing staff?" The answers to these questions will be made public to all players. Some of these answers may create special game mechanics, which will only be known to the person who answered the question.

All role mechanics will be built around the wrestling concept of ridiculous drama and shenanigans.

During Night Phases, all players may make one post in thread as a "Promo" -- Sometimes this will be required to activate role powers, sometimes it is just for flavor, but if you ever wanted to call someone out at Night, now is your chance.

Players: 9 to 11
Potential Third Parties

Sample Wrestling Template
Please fill out this template below. The results (but not mechanic notes) will be posted to the thread by the GM after you send it in. You will also receive your alignment and any additional role abilities after your submission:

PlayDip Player Name: ZoomZip
Wrestler's Name: William Kidney
Nickname/Handle: "The Quant"
Height: 6' 1" Weight: 267lbs
Appearance: Slightly stained shirt and tie with traditional wrestling brief bottoms.
Gimmick: Feels he has solved wrestling through the use of advanced computer algorithms stored in his laptop, which he brings ringside and will consult during matches.
Finishing Move: The Optimized Suplex -- Basically just a set of three rolling suplexes that is overhyped by the announcers
Introductory Music: "What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)" by Information Society

Which wrestler did you idolize before turning pro?
JeanPhi (Mechanic Note: Any vote cast for this player before D3 will not be counted)
Which wrestler took you aside to show you a few moves? Crunkus (Mechanic Note: No Impact)
Which wrestler resents you being allowed to compete? TheWyseCat (Mechanic Note: If this player is eliminated before your are eliminated, you will receive their role power)

Is the flavour game-relevant, or just for fun?

Flavor is just for fun except the relationship questions you would answer.

Will players know the mechanical impact of these relationships before they answer the questions, or only after?

Before. But they will not know their alignment when they answer. Or their other roles
If any.

The form is standardized, or are there multiple forms randomly distributed?

The form is standardized except for the relationship questions, which will vary from player to player (though with some overlap). Everyone's form, stripped of any mechanics notes, will be published on Night 0/Day 1 start.

vary from player to player randomly, or possibly according to role/alignment?

Vary from player to player without regard to role or alignment, which are assigned randomly.
