The Rise and Fall of Papa John Plainman:
2 slices of pizza one is poison


Based on a flavor by CoolRanch

Business has been booming over in Papa John's Transylvania but the local restaurateurs are starting to grow tired of this foreign culinary invasion. Although they love Papa as a person (because who wouldn't?), they want to see his business fail more than anything else. They've managed to get some of their goons hired on at the flagship Papa John's location and have taken to poisoning the pies in order to drive the whole franchise into the ground.

Each night, the Papa John's will bake two varieties of pizza, and the goons will choose one type to poison. Papa's caught wind of this scheme and has told the employees to inspect the pizzas and throw out the flavor that they think is poisoned. Unfortunately, the goons have hacked Papa's servers allowing them to not only choose each day's menu but also choose which employee is responsible for pizza inspection. Papa takes this role very seriously and will shitcan the employee if they throw out the wrong one causing his valued customers to get sick. At the end of each day, the employees will vote to report the employees (one per day) that they think are responsible for the poisonings to Papa. Papa's a busy man and doesn't have time to investigate whether the reported employees actually did it, so he'll just fire them without a second thought. Luckily, worker's rights are pretty much non-existent in Transylvania. The pizzeria will need to get all the goons fired before they're the only ones left working.

Roles:

Goons - These sneaky bastards have glided through Papa's rigorous background checks and are ready to drive him out of business. Each night, they will choose two varieties of pizza for the next day's menu and which one of them to poison. They will also assign the pizza inspector role to a player as well as provide an alternate if that player is out sick. (These are the werewolves)

Employee - These lazy bums aren't too good at their jobs. They should be able to figure out who's poisoning the pizzas pretty easily, but they're not especially perceptive. They also don't really do a whole lot besides blaming each other unless they're called on to be pizza inspector. (These are the villagers)

Temporary designations:
Pizza inspector - A new inspector is chosen each day and is responsible for quality control. If they let a poisoned pizza get sold to customers, they will find themselves in the unemployment lines at the end of the day. They will vote for the pizza that they want to serve to customers like so:

Pepperoni
Code: Select all
[b][color=#0000BF]Pepperoni[/color][/b]


Employee of the Month - The best and brightest employee or just whomever Papa likes the most at the moment. Who knows how they are chosen. They can't get fired no matter how bad they fuck up. It's called Employee of the Month, but Papa is capricious and will choose someone new whenever he feels like it.

Sick days
If you are feeling sick and can't make it in to work, you are allowed to take a sick day. If you are out sick, you can't be chosen for inspection duties and can't be reported on (i.e. you can't be fired that day). However, you will also not be allowed to come to the restaurant (i.e. post in the thread) because then Papa will know you were faking it. Please be aware that employees caught abusing sick leave may be subject to immediate termination. Sick leave requests are only granted if staffing levels are sufficient. All sick leave requests will need to be made during the night phase and will be effective until the next day.

Vote to fire:
The Unblinking Eye
Code: Select all
[b][color=#FF0000]The Unblinking Eye[/color][/b]


Rescind vote:
The Unblinking Eye
Code: Select all
[b][color=#00FF00]The Unblinking Eye[/color][/b]

Miscellaneous:

There will be no "no kill" votes counted. You can refrain from casting a vote, but the player with the most amount of votes will be fired. In the event of a tie, both (or all) players with the most votes will be fired.

PM me during the night phase if you want to take a sick day - sick days will be granted on a first-come-first-served basis.

It may be possible to be Employee of the Month on successive days. However, you will get a separate PM each day informing you of this, so assume you will only be EOTM for one day.

There will be no banned words, but players caught praising other fast food restaurants may be fired for disloyalty.

That sounds interesting. Even an obvious N1 target might survive and still get to play a little, which I like. N1 kill is probably the most unfair part of the game.

I of course am in.

VHB, I think you'll really enjoy the mechanic, but yeah, that's one of the things I like about the way it will (hopefully) work.

Nights should be fairly short depending on how fast people get back to me. There will only be one type of evil, so it hopefully shouldn't take too long. There will be a short intermediary phase between night and day, and the day phase should last a few hours depending on how fast people vote.

If we get two more sign-ups soon, would people want to start earlier than Tuesday? Would anyone have a problem if we did?
