Tribal Mafia

So I decided to make a public rules game so I wrote a new game for my first game and it'll replace my other game in the queue.

9-10 players

The Tribe is a peaceful community living together for years and their is an idol which they revere that protects them. This idol is protected by Ten Guardians working together to ensure the security of the idol but unfortunately two of the Guardians have become corrupt. The 8 Guardians who remain must work together to capture the two Corrupt Guardians using the powers of the idol.

There is an idol in which each night sent via PM is a vote on who should receive the idol. The idol makes them immune to NKs and activates a special ability each Guardian has to use that night. The idol may not be received by the same player more than once.

If however in the rare circumstance everyone alive has already received the idol it may continue to be used for NK immunity but not for actions.

The Guardian who possessed the idol shall learn of it upon sunrise. They also will learn of what their action resulted in. They are not required to share with the town what happened or even that they possessed the idol however should they desire too they may share it.

There will be a 3p if there are 10 players and will not be if there are 9 players.

Scum win by having more of them then town. 3p has their own defined VC. Town must lynch all scum.

Day Time: 72 hours
Night Time: 24 hours

Everyday there will be 1 and only 1 lynch. In order to be selected for the lynch you must have more votes than any other voted target.

Everyone at night must submit a vote (no self-voting) for who they want the idol to go to along with who they are targeting with the ability should they receive the idol.

Should there be a tie the vote goes to whoever had the idol holder on their side. The votes are held anonymously. If the idol holder did not vote for either member of the tie then the vote is resolved randomly. This is both for the Idol Vote and the Lynch Vote.

There is no End Day and no Speed Deadlines.

Everyone must vote in Large Red Letters. If the voting tabulator doesn't process it then I won't use it.

If the GM must clarify something in the thread he will use This Color. No one besides the GM may use it.

No PMs outside of the game between other players about the game unless your role specifies you may.
You may not copy the GM's PMs.
Editing posts result in a removal from the game.
Use common sense.

May people give me feedback?

How would tied votes for the idol resolve? Giving scum/3P just half of a vote could create some way to mechanically hunt them. For instance, proposing a system whereby the top half of the roster is to vote for Zoomzip, and the bottom half of the roster is to vote for asudevil has the potential of letting town know which pool had more voting clout. Enough iterations of this, enough different groupings, and eventually there will be one group of all towns assigned to vote for Person A, and the other group assigned to vote for Person B that will have all the non-towns in it. Person A wins, letting us know the non-towns are all in the assigned Person B voters. Non-towns can't really fuck with the vote, because voting for Person A instead of their assigned Person B just makes Person A win even more. Same if they tried to vote for Person C.

So the votes for the idol are via PM therefore they are anonymous. So you will not see 0.5. If there is a tie then whoever currently holds the idol will have their side win. If they are not voting for either side of the top 2 then the vote will resolve randomly.

You don't see the 0.5 directly, but if the town sticks to a voting plan, you can figure it out. If town gets everybody to publicly commit to half the votes going to A, and half the votes going to B, the half that has more scum in it is going to be weaker, and that side will reliably lose. There's nothing the scum can do to prevent the guy they were assigned to vote for from losing.

True…

Alright I'll change that to make everyone's night vote be equal.

Do you see any other issues?

Is it the Guardian's location public knowledge, or players get to choose to reveal or not?

I'm not clear on if there's a lynch mechanic in this game or not--seems like there is? If so, how are ties in a lynch vote resolved? And do lynches have to be majority, or just a plurality?

Also...do 3p count towards scum/town wincon? As in, if there's 2 scum/1 town/1 3p, do scum win? Or are they their own separate thing? Or is that left purposely vague?
