My name is Barry Allen: I am the Flash Mafia Game Thread
A Sylar the Deathsmark Production of The Flash Mafia
Barry Allen is a Central City police forensic scientist with a reasonably happy life, despite the childhood trauma of a mysterious red and yellow lightning killing his mother and framing his father. ...
With Barry's new powers and team of scientists, he becomes "The Flash" and helps fight crime and protects Central City.
As always town must eliminate all threats to town in order to win and will fail to do so when they can no longer achieve a lynch on their own.
Mafia need to gain control of the vote or stop town from being able to lynch on their own.
Your town alignment is Central City. Your win condition: You win when all threats to Central City have been eliminated.
Alignments will read: Town or Mafia in parenthesis in the Alignment section, but your town's name is Central City. Everywhere else town will be referred to as Central City.
Spoiler for a sample role PM:
Welcome to Central City, reader!
You are Wade Eiling, a General of the U.S. Army
"Still pulling needles out of Barry Allen?."
—Eiling to Dr. Wells
Wade is shown to be a ruthless and immoral man. He will do anything, including inhumane activities such as experimenting on humans and animals, to strengthen the US military. It could arguably qualify as a monomania, since Wade dismisses the fact that he knows Barry Allen is the Flash, given that they have a mutual enemy (Eobard Thawne). He does seem to have some respect for Eobard, as Harrison Wells, even calling him the smartest guy that he knows.
Eiling is a remarkably intelligent man and master strategist, as seen how he used highly specialized weapons against both Flash and Firestorm to target their specific traits and abilities. This shows his dynamic and adaptable mind and how he is always preparing for every possible threat or eventuality. He is very much the worst example of a utilitarian, ready to kill anyone who resists him so long as they can still be of use to him, such as when he attempted to shoot Martin Stein in the head upon learning that he didn't need Stein alive to learn more about the F.I.R.E.S.T.O.R.M. matrix. Despite his corrupt nature, ruthless and inhumane actions, he truly believes his actions are for the betterment of the U.S. and the army, always claiming that more soldiers lives can be saved and more enemies of the U.S. defeated through his plans to use metahumans as living weapons for the army, and feels the ends will justify the means without remorse.
Alignment: Central City (Town)
Goldfinger – When Wade threatened Wells, Wells said if he did it again, he would end him, meaning he would use his powers to kill him. Wade left the crippled scientist alone, reminding that they could've changed the world together. Despite all his bravado, Eiling never accomplishes much and as such you are a vanilla townie.
You win when all threats to Central City have been eliminated.
Independents - Mafia - Town win in that order if it becomes unclear who won.

My games have a lot of moving pieces.
There will be a lot of role overlap. Some of the time it will be town/town, scum/scum, or even town/scum so I wouldn't hunt on this alone.
There is always a strong possibility of players changing alignments. Either given a choice, not given a choice or activated purely off how the game unfolds.
