A few questions regarding the mysterious benefactor:

1. Do they get to use Kill at night, or do they have to rely on BO killing and/or lynching to kill? Or do they get APTX?
-- Update:
Depending on the number of people, the mysterious benefactor may be able to murder at night or can influence the lynch vote via a slightly improved sabotage (additional to their role's ability). When all his/her targets are dead, he/she wins and magically escapes the death cruise.

You already mentioned that he definitely does get Sabotage. This says he may be able to kill - have you decided if the game is big enough for that, or are there other factors? Will we know once the game starts?
-- 1A. What happens if the BO kills one of their kills and/or their target gets lynched (but they didn't vote for that person)?
-- 1B. If the benefactor gets Kill as an ability, will there potentially be two deaths (or three in the case of lovers) at night? Or will you randomly select between BO kill and benefactor kill?

2. Obviously, they lose if they die/get perma-arrested before they complete their three specific kills. If they kill all three targets, do they auto-win?
-- 2A. If yes, does the game continue until BO or Town wins too? (And if yes, is the benefactor removed from the game? Or does he keep playing? If he keeps playing, does he have to survive to the end to keep his win?)
-- 2B. If no, how do they win? With the Town + if their kills died?

Answered:
When the players with the three roles are dead, the mysterious benefactor disappears from the game mysteriously, appearing as though arrested. Those three players must be dead, and cannot be behind bars.


New question:
- If he/she does not kill the roles before all the BO are dead, he/she will lose.

Does this mean that the BO must specifically kill the benefactor in order to win, too? (I mean, assuming that the benefactor doesn't get his kills in before then and vanish from the game.)

Also, just for clarity:
- The mysterious benefactor isn't given a list of three player names at the beginning of the night 1. Two of those names are not his targets, and one of them is.
I think you meant is there.

1. I'm going with the mysterious benefactor being able to kill. As a handicap for the townsfolk (and per story plot), the BO won't be killing night 1. The mysterious benefactor gets a reply regarding the number of targets remaining at each phase after night 1 (because no one is dying during prep phase, right) in case a body is destroyed beyond recognition. I'll give the BO one abduct result on Night 1 to compensate for the antsy killing urges that I know you all have.

1A. The mysterious benefactor does not care who ends the life of those targets, as long as they are dead.

1B. Yes. 2 deaths. The mysterious benefactor's kill takes priority.

2. Because the mysterious benefactor can now kill, the BO must kill the mysterious benefactor in order to win. (If the mysterious benefactor can't kill, the BO wins if they can tie lynch votes accounting for sabotage).

when the benefactor dies, will it be revealed in phase change announcement that they were the benefactor?

No. It'll be obvious when the benefactor dies. The story MIGHT have some clues about it in a later phase (still deciding on this).

Thanks for the questions, PT, Link and Kamite. :D

Let's see... Clothes. Got to have enough so that you don't have to do laundry every day. Toiletry. You never know who you'll meet. Got to stay fresh. Bathing suit. No questions about that. Extra towels. "Your needs will be amply met. The crew for this cruise was meticulously chosen based on their experience in 'providing for your needs before you even know your needs' from their decades of experience." You don't want to risk getting a cold by not having a towel when you need one. Snorkeling and diving equipment. No way are you risking an indirect kiss on this cruise, even if it is a highly exclusive event. Taxi fare. No way I'm getting to Yokohama harbour on time without a little help. The ticket. Don't forget the ticket.

You can't help but admire the ticket design. The ornate ticket reflects the light like gold glitter. The weight of the ticket makes you wonder if the gold is real. At the back it reads: "Admit one. The boat is scheduled to leave one hour before sunset (17:34). Only valid while donning the mask sent along with the ticket."

You almost forgot about the package that was left on the doorstep when you got the ticket in your mail. You scrounge for it among all the other items you're packing. Here it is: the mask. It looks like something from those parties. What are they called again? Oh yes. Masquerades. Very traditional ones, covering the top half of the face. You recall the letter mentioning the mask.

"...will be required to wear the masquerade mask. A simple one has been provided to you. You are welcome to choose your own masquerade mask before coming. The organizer of the lottery require that all who participate on the cruise must keep the mask on when in public. While a peculiar rule, I hope you will enjoy your time on this exquisite adventure."

Is there anything else I need? I'm sure it'll all fit in the suitcase somehow.

You throw all of it into the suitcase you have prepared for this cruise. You plug in your phone to the phone charger.

You make a mental note: put phone charger in suit--.

You dream the sweetest of delights, the most thrilling of adventures, the most wondrous of sight. You smile, awaiting a bright new day.

Prep phase begins
Your roles will come soon. I'm putting people through the randomizer now.
All messages have been sent out. Let me know if you didn't get a role (or if you got 2 roles :-X which I'm pretty sure hasn't happened).

Re: Forum Mafia 76: Your Summer Vacation (Night 1)

You arrive by taxi at Yokohama harbour around 16:30. You fight the crowds and head towards Osanbashi-Pier D. There you see a cruise yacht of roughly four fifths of a cho (町). There are three rows of square windows, an open deck on top, a variety of navigation thingamabobs (because you obviously know everything about modern navigational techniques on the open sea) sitting above the top of the ship.

You head towards the aft starboard of the cruise ship, where two women dressed in a white uniform with gold and white epaulettes are welcoming the guests.

As you wait in line, you notice a submersible undergoing inspection at the stern by two people dressed in the same uniform, but with purple instead of white colours on their epaulettes. A lifeboat lies on the side of the ship between the two floors above you. Another two people dressed as those by the submersible are inspecting the boat.

You reach for your face, making sure the mask is on. You show your ticket. They each scrutinize the ticket a magnifying glass that seemingly appeared out of thin air.

"Welcome to The Taipan. We hope you enjoy your stay." The two women gesture you inside the centerline corridor behind them. "These two will take your luggage to your room and bring you to the dining hall, where we will give you an orientation of the Taipan when all the guests have boarded."

A man and a woman--dressed in the same uniform as the two women who handled your registration--take your suitcase and gestures you to follow them down the corridor. After they reach your room and left your bag inside the door, they hand you the key to the room. "Please follow us to the dining hall, where you will be given an orientation to the cruise yacht. Also, we were instructed by the organizer of the cruise to tell all our guests to refrain from revealing their true persona behind the mask. The reason? We're not sure, but you'll soon find that the organizer has a very peculiar taste regarding this cruise."

You follow them to the aft stairwell. After going up a flight (or two) of stairs, you reach deck four. You enter the forward doors from the stairs, and arrive in the majestic dining hall. The red radiance of the setting sun diffuses across the white luxurious curtains and tablecloths draped around 12 tables, 6 on each side of the ship. The radiance reflects from the mirrored ceiling to the 5 easels--covered with a thick white blanket for dust cover--sitting in the middle of the dining room. Several waiters (in the same white uniform) have come out in pairs with large platters of hors d'oeuvre. You take a few pieces of delight as you admire the scenery as other guests with masks trickled into the room.

You settle in and start to make light conversation with the other masked guests in this room. The weather, the senseless politics in faraway countries, the economy under Shinzo Abe's rule, the future of Japan, the next thing the Suzuki Corporation is going to build. You're not sure if you're following the conversation all that well.

Finally, there are 16 masked people waiting in the dining hall. A man with four gold stripes on his epaulette enters the room from the forward entrance to the dining hall.

He clinks on a glass and everyone turns their heads to him. "I am Captain Bulurufu Buregu, the one who will make sure you have a pleasant stay on the luxurious Taipan. My mother told me that she named me based on the proud traditions of my ancestors, who came from an island the name of which I can never remember. I mean, I can barely say my name that well. You can refer to me as Captain Buregu, if that makes it any easier. And to my left is my second-in-command."

"Ah, yes. My name is Yokomizo Kaigo (横溝 開悟)." He said in the most soothing of voices. "Before you ask, yes, I'm related to a certain pair Of famous police officers. My mother wanted me to excel in life. She didn't want me to be an afterthought to my brothers' naming scheme, so she made a pun with my name too. She has always reminded me that she wasn't serious about the other meaning from the pun. So she says."

"HAHAHAHA" Captain Buregu's laughter interrupts Yokomizo-san. "It may be hard to tell, but without him, I'll never be able to run this ship," Captain Buregu exclaimed.

"Anyways, let me give you a tour of the cruise yacht. We're currently on Deck Four. There are several stairways on the Taipan. The most frequented are the two interior stairways, the forward stairs and the aft stairs. All of you came up from the aft stairs. Let's go back there to begin the tour."

"Further towards the stern (the back of the ship) is a small patio cafe service, the Blue Lagoon. You can relax while looking at the sea. Let us head upstairs now."

"On Deck Five, we have seating for the cafe. Near the center of the deck is the gym with one treadmill and two multi-purpose machine, along with various exercise tools at your disposal." Further ahead is the hot tub portside of the ship. Further forward is the pool we have recently installed for your enjoyment. Now let us go down the forward stairs."

"We're now back on Deck four. Here is the lounge, where we have two musical group playing from 8 pm to 2 am. You'll also satisfy your alcoholic thirst here. Be nice to the bartenders. I don't want to lock you up and bar you from the bar. HAHAHAHA," Captain Buregu's voice echos in the lounge. "Let's head down to the Deck three."

"Towards the bow of the ship is the bridge, and my quarters. This area is highly restricted. We ask that you not enter in case you mess up the delicate navigational system. As you look aft, you'll see some of the living quarters for our guests. The self service laundry can be found near the middle of the ship on this deck. Room 301, 302, 303, 306 are connecting rooms, and is used to store some of the painting that we will be seeing during our time here. Please refrain from entering them, as the environment in those rooms are set to keep the paintings from being damaged by the elements. Let us head down towards Deck Two."

"Deck Two contains the rest of living quarters for our guests. Since you probably did not have a chance to see your rooms yet, let me describe its opulence for you. You'll all have a room about seven tatami mats large containing a queen size bed. We would have put in a larger bed, but it doesn't fit through the door. Each room has a marble bathroom and a view of the open seas. You'll find our other self service laundry room in the middle of Deck two. Below here is Deck one, where our crew resides. We ask that you refrain from entering belowdecks. You may hear some strange noises. Do not worry; they like to conduct séance during their free times. I assure you those from the beyond would not bother you during this trip." Captain Buregu booming laughter catches you by surprise. "Let us make our way to the aft."

"Here is where you all boarded the yacht. I'm sure you have seen our submersible. It holds three people, and two of our crew will board along with you to help you navigate the world under the sea and enjoy the wonders of the Pacific Ocean. Each trip is an hour long and held during the day. Also, as per our organizer's request, we have set up one table for some card games should you wish to gamble. You'll see it on starboard of the aft stairs. On the portside, there's a small pantry, should you find yourself hungry and thirsty in the middle of the night. Let us head back up towards the dining Room."

"We're now back on Deck Three. You will find the lifeboats anchored on each side of the yacht around Deck Four by the stairs that run on each side of the ship that extends from aft Deck Two to Deck Five. Here we also have the doctor on board. Across from the doctor's office is the beauty salon. We offer a spa service, massage services, and hair-styling services so you look your best. Don't worry. Our crew members are instructed to allow only one person in the salon at a time, so that no one see your face underneath the mask. Now let us head towards the Dining Room once again."

"Now that you've seen all of the yacht, you're welcome to look around between Deck Two to Deck Five. We'll reach Ogasawara in the morning two and a half days from now. In the meantime, let me know what services you would like to enjoy this evening, and I'll make sure that the crew fulfills your every need."

Come on now. Don't wait. The marvels of the open sea awaits. You only have to tell Captain Bulurufu Buregu.

Night 1 Begins.

Night 1 Actions can be sent up to 8:00 pm PDT on Sunday, September 23.

Seriously, tell me what you'd like to do on this evening. I'll add it into the story somehow.
