"Welcome to Season 15 everyone. A lot has happened since we last spoke so lets get right to your questions and skip the small talk."

Welcome back, lets talk off-season.  What was your off-season like, what was your biggest addition to your team, and who is someone you wish you didn't lose?

"First of all, thank you. It is good to be back. The off season always feels stressful when you're in my shoes, you know? From discussions about the salary cap, to trying to make sure you're making the right personnel moves. From an additions stand point I think that the combination of Al Beard and Isaiah Simmons, from a rival no less, is a big deal for us. We had to give up a lot to get them here but we're thrilled with what they bring to the table. As for losses, well the loss of a guy like Coach Svech is going to be felt, there's no question about it. Someone as experienced and intelligent as he is.. the fact that he wasn't already a head coach in the league is a shame. But I'm thrilled that we were able to replace him with one of the brightest young minds in the league. We've got faith in Jonathan to have this defensive unit pick up where it left off last season."

Take us back to Draft Day, what lead to you taking the player you took with your first pick?

"We saw Thomas Pak as a player that has the potential to be  not just be a game changing defensive end, but a game breaking defensive end the way that guys like Waylon Hagan and Timothy Cobbs have been. It's not often you come across players of that caliber and with that potential outside of the top ten. For us? It was a no brainer and he's got the opportunity to watch and learn behind some really talented ends like David Lee and Isaiah Simmons, and have a veteran like Duane Gore there to hopefully help teach him some of the nuances of his position as well."

Coming out of Training Camp who is the player you wish you would have seen on your "most improved list" that you didn't see?

"You guys are going right for the hard hitting questions, huh? You know there's probably a couple of guys that we would have loved to have seen take that next step. I think a guy like Trey Dean has all the tools in the world to be the best strong safety in the league and we've given him some extra minicamp reps the last couple of off-seasons to try and get him there. It hasn't quite clicked yet but I still have faith that, with time and patience, everything is going to fall into place and he's going to take that leap from being a really good player, to a potentially hall of fame caliber player."

If you were to improve one position on your team with a trade before the season starts, what position do you target, and are you looking to trade picks or players to get a deal done?

"That's tough, you know? Because really we're bringing back most of the guys that made up a 15-1 squad a season ago so you don't necessarily want to tinker too much. I think another high caliber player in our DB room, specifically at cornerback, would go a long way to ease any concerns there might be about depth and experience. Plus, competition breeds success and I think a little extra push would be beneficial for our guys."

How many wins should your fan base expect this year, realistically what should fans expect to see?

"15-1 is a hard task to replicate. Are we capable of it? Sure, but how many times in this league have you seen even the best teams post a record like that? It's not an every year occurrence. But I do think fans can, and should, realistically expect somewhere in the ten to twelve wins range and another division championship. This is a playoff contender, and an impact bowl contender, and that's the standard that we're going to carry every single day. We've taken all the steps in the right direction since I've been here. Coming off of a 1-15 season the year before I came here, we improved our record in Season 12 and brought home three wins. We narrowly missed the playoffs in Season 13. Last year we posted the best regular season record in football and brought playoff football back to the city of St. Paul. This year? It's about the next step. It's about winning playoff games and ultimately, winning the Impact Bowl. So that's where we've got our sights set."

We can do it. I know we can I just want to make sure the guys aren't in their heads. We need them to be pissed off and want to fight hard that what we've asked them to up to this point in the season. It's a big series for us.

1. Talk about your series. Who on your team, was your series MVP?

"First of all, apologies for running a bit late this week. I would hesitate to ascribe an MVP for the series to anyone when we got swept on our home field. We didn't get a good enough effort from anyone."

2. Talk about at least TWO news headlines.

"Obviously the sweep stings pretty badly here in Brooklyn but if anything softens the blow a little bit it's seeing the idiot who used to sit in my office take an L against the team, and player, he ordered thrown at."

3. We have seen a few moves already as trade deadline approaches. Will you be trade deadline buyers or sellers?

"We'd love to be buyers but this organization has really put itself behind the eight ball in the past by trading young assets and draft picks away for short term fixes. We'll make a trade if the price is right, but we're not mortgaging our future."

4. Talk about your upcoming series. Where is one place your team will have the advantage against your opponent?

"We're looking forward to hosting New Orleans and trying to put an end to the skid we're on. I think we can point to our bullpen as a place where we have an advantage, but are going to need everyone to step up if we want to right this ship before things get too out of control.

Thanks for your time, guys."

"Skip, that was a rough one."

Hero after hero continued to fall or mysteriously disappear and it was certainly no question that the nerves of the people were Alexandria were shot. Their Princess was still missing and in her absence violence seemed to increase by the day.

And when the mob starts to rule, they look for any familiar face with any sort of power to blame.

For Adelbert Steiner he had served the people of Alexandria and the throne for as long as he could remember. Yes, he had served the Queen but he had also served the King before his death, and had been a friend to the Princess as well.

But mob justice, looking for anyone to blame for the hysteria, reared its ugly head in his direction on this day.

And this faithful servant of Alexandria would not live to see another day because of it.

Zidane Tribal had been desperately searching for Princess Garnett since they had been separated a few days earlier. Panic had set in when what little remained of Vivi Ornitier, one of his closest friends, had been discovered.

And so he had decided to take a risk. He was quite good at getting into places that he shouldn't be. Places that were fraught with danger and with Queen Brahne on the throne Alexandria castle was probably the most dangerous place that Zidane could find himself. But he knew... he just knew that there had to be some clue inside the castle that would lead him back to her.

Unfortunately, as good as he was at sneaking and sulking through the shadows, on this day he wasn't good enough. Maybe it was because Brahne and her forces were looking for him. Maybe it was because the castle was on high alert. Whatever it was, his luck ran out as he rounded a corner right into a trio of castle guards who were on patrol.

It didn't take long for him to be arrested.

It didn't take long for him to be dragged out of sight.

Out of sight and never to be seen again.

As a new day dawns, the gunblade that had done so much good over the course of the last six days, lays still on the bricked street. Blood trickles down the side of a little stump as the body of Squall Leonhart lies motionless, its body separated from its head, right in the middle of the main thoroughfare.

Upon each storefront and building are signs, posted by the forces of Queen Brahne during the night, warning of the penalty for treason and other crimes against the people of Alexandria and pointing toward the example of an outsider, a man from a place and a nation far far away, for evidence of just how serious Brahne is.

The relief that had been felt a few days earlier has once more been staunched. Windows remain boarded and shut. Commoners only peak their heads out of their homes for a moment. They only scurry up and down the street to get to their places of employment as quickly as possible.

Hope was rapidly being extinguished beneath the gluttonous rage of the tyrant Queen of Alexandria.

"I'll probably reach out to a team or two to see what their asking price is and if a deal can be made, great. If not, we just keep grinding with what we've got.

I don't see any need to make any changes to how we've got things set up now, do you? Other than maybe relying on Demby over Galiano a little bit more in longer relief situations?"

A group of individuals, a collective really, trying to get to the bottom of what was happening in Alexandria had spent the majority of the night talking and discussing what their next move was. How could they put a stop to the madness that was unfolding. It was Aerith Gainsborough who first noticed the absence of the little black mage Vivi Ornitier. At first she thought nothing of it. Each of them had their own loyalties, and the things that were important to them, but as the evening drew near morning she began to worry. And so she quietly took her leave of the rest of the group and went in search of the black mage.

A scream that pierced the air just as the sun began to rise quickened her pace.

A wave of sadness at seeing the blue coat that had belonged to Vivi nearly knocked her off her feat but quickly shifted and morphed into rage.

She could sense the magic that had been used to kill him. She could almost see the trail left behind, and so she followed. Followed until she finally found the person who it was associated with.

"You'll go no further," Aerith said, closing the distance between her and the other woman, Sorceress Adel, and with a flourish of her hands froze the sorceress in her place. But even as she had the woman stilled in her grasp she knew that her magic could not last forever. Thankfully, just in time, the flash of a gunblade and the torrid assault of a large man in full plate armor with a massive greatsword in his hands, charged at the sorceress and dealt with her quickly.

It was over before Adel had time to react. And though justice had been taken into their own hands, rather than given to the hands of the people of Alexandria, there was a sense that the kingdom was a little bit safer.

AFTER A LONG DELAY IN WHICH THE MOD SAT AT THE PAUSE SCREEN FOR A WEEK BECAUSE HIS LIFE WENT CRAZY...

She always did like to watch the peasants squirm under the might of another. Typically, she was the one whose might had caused the suffering of many but this Brahne, she was delightful. But now she needed to get involved, to hold up her end of the bargain that been struck. And so, she finally put her magic to use.

The sort of mage like Vivi Ornitier was disgusted a woman of immeasurable power like Sorceress Adel was. And ridding the multiverse of the likes of him would bring it one step closer to being more suitable to her tastes.

She spotted him crossing the street, perhaps in search of Princess Garnet or her little friend? Who could be sure? That bit of nonsense didn't mean much to her one way or the other.

What did matter was the threat that a black mage could pose to her. And so she held her hand out, a glittering spear of ice appearing in her hand. With the flick of her wrist she flung the spear in Vivi's direction and the moment she let it go she new it would strike true.

And strike true it did, piercing the small mage with such force that it pinned him to the side a nearby building. He struggled for a moment but ultimately, he passed. Once he was gone, nothing remained of him but the coat that he wore, frozen to the side of the building where he had been stuck, just in time for the dawn to rise and the people of Alexandria to bear witness to what Adel had done.

The appearance of JENOVA a few days earlier has seemingly rattled the town. Who would have ever thought such a creature was real? And here in Alexandria? They had heard stories. Rumors. Whispers. But surely they had been children's tales... or so they had thought. She had been dealt with, swifitly, but for the people of Alexandria, there was one name they tied to Jenova besides Sephiroth.

One name. Cloud Strife.

He wasn't a man to beg. Instead a man of action who tried his best to do right by those he cared about. But as the mob descended upon him, wanting to rid their land of anything that might even SLIGHTLY be associated with Jenova, his words fell on deaf ears. They demanded he pay, if for no other reason than they needed someone to blame.

It's a shame, really, for such a hero to go out this way. A hero of the people. Someone who could see through even the vilest intents of the heart. Someone plagued with visions that warned him of those who were his enemies, and gave him peace of mind about those who were his friends.

He deserved better. But on this day, the justice of the mob prevailed. One has to wonder if they'll live to regret it.

Discuss the results of your last series.

"Obviously we're disappointed to not win the series but I think we sent a message to the Tide either way. This isn't a team that rolls over and lets them take wins for free anymore. They fought for every run scored, and for every out achieved, and if a break here or there goes our way instead of theirs? It's an entirely different series.

That said, we've got work to do now because we're a game back of both London and Virginia Beach now. So life got harder, but we aren't afraid of the work."

If you had to bet on a team to win the College World Series, who would it be on?

"I'd go with the guys from Long Beach State for no other reason than I love a Cinderella Story. After knocking off USC in the Super Regionals you've got to believe they're flying high and that's something I could put my money on."

Talk about at least one other piece of news.

"Well we know from experience just what kind of a tear Maeda is on right now. He might be the best player in all of baseball and we got a first hand, front row seat of that."

Talk about your upcoming series.

"We need this one. Simply put. We need to bounce back from a series loss to take at least two in this one. But at home? We're aiming for all three, especially against a squad without an active general manager in place. The stars have talent on their roster, but so do we and I think our pitchers can neutralize their lineup and our hitters can take advantage of some solid matchups when we're at the plate."

Maybe it was the familiarity of the setting, a local tavern with the hustle and bustle of people, that made this foreign place feel so much like home to Tifa Lockhart. Alexandria, a place that felt so different than her own home, had unsettled her a little bit. Maybe it was her time working with Avalanche that had caused her to sense when things were off, when someone whose thirst for power had long sense rid them of any moral fiber, that made her feel like she needed to stick around and make sure that everything ended up okay.

Sephiroth. Jenova. Those were names, and forces, she had dealt with in the past alongside her friends. Seeing them dealt with once more had brought some peace to her. And now, being in this little tavern... for just a moment she let her guard down and let herself believe that everything was going to be okay.

And maybe it would have been if she had chosen another establishment. Or if she had just left in search of a way home. But she hadn't, and soon enough the forces of Queen Brahne had kicked the door down. Tifa didn't even have time to put up a fight before the soldiers were on her, dragging her out into the castle courtyard in the middle of the night.

Torchlight was all that lit the scene as she was interrogated in broad daylight and then sentenced to death.

The same swift death that Amarant Coral had suffered at the hands of Brahne's forces just a few days earlier.

As dawn breaks, the screams of the caravan master Underhill still echoing in the minds of many, it seems the forces of good have decided to strike back. JENOVA, recognizing she might have left herself exposed, tries to slink back into the shadows. But it is not to be. The sounds of footsteps running across the rooftops are one of the final sounds that she hears as a man dressed in mostly black, a white undershirt, brown hair and a jagged scar running diagonally across his face leaps from the top of a nearby building and plummets down toward the unsuspecting form of the monstrosity that is JENOVA. He had had a close night of his own the night before and was looking for vengeance now.

Visciously he drives the gunblade down through her skull, the force of the blow carrying both himself, and the sword, all the way down to the ground, splitting JENOVA in two, slaying her once and for all.

DEAD - SEPHIROTH/JENOVA (Bennett) - MAFIA RID KILLER/MAFIA GOON

A few of the commonfolk nearby peak their heads out of their windows and doors at the sound of the noise and give a hearty cheer. Certain that, at least in this moment, good has prevailed.

This good news is enough to lift the spirits of the people of Alexandria enough that they are able to both continue and enjoy the festival that had begun a few days earlier. For a moment they forget their troubles. For a moment they forget even that Princess Garnet's whereabouts are still unknown.

As the night overtakes the day and people bar their doors and shutter their windows, fear has gripped the kingdom of Alexandria. The average person finds themselves trying to make sense of the things that had taken place in broad daylight. And yet if great evil can occur in broad daylight, imagine what might happen when the sun settled on the horizon and darkness took hold.

For Underhill, it didn't stop him from having a job to do. There were faeries that he had bottled and sold, and business didn't stop simply because bad things had happened. Not so quietly his caravan rolled down the street, the wooden wheels cracking and creaking against the paved streets. But as he rounded a corner he came face to face with the same... beast. The same creature. The same.. whatever she was that the whole city had seen transform out of the body of a tall, slender silver haired man with a terrible sword in his hands.

No words came forth from her mouth. The creature, JENOVA, simply raised her hand and ignited Underhills mind with what felt like white hot heat, burning and searing through his body. He screamed. And screamed. And screamed.

Screams that echoed through the city and danced on the night air.

And then those screams fell silent and where Underhill had once been, nothing remained. Nothing except for his cart and the bottled faeries waiting to be purchased.

The sparkle and shimmer of a long, slender sword glistens in the sunlight of the day. Silver-white hair hangs loosely in Sephiroth’s face as he hunts the prey that has alluded him for so long. His ultimate goal isn’t the Elephant Woman’s daughter-heir. She would just be a means to an end. A means for him to root out the one he truly wanted. The one whose materia would give him power unlimited. He would find h…

“I know you.”

A voice cuts his thoughts short. Standing before him is a man with dark brown hair and a jagged scar that runs diagonally across his face. Across his shoulder is draped a unique sword in its own right. And as the crowd began to gather, the two men began to circle in the Courtyard of Alexandria Palace.

“I know what you’ve done…”

Swiftly, in response to the words, Sephiroth casually flicks his the lengthy sword in the other man’s direction. A battle ensues with eyes watching closely. But Sephiroth, arrogant as always, doesn’t account for the skill of his opponent. Skill which, after a few moment, sees the long, gun like sword pierce the clothing of the infamous villain.

“And now you pay for your crimes.”

However, Sephiroth merely smiles in an almost pitying fashion. That smile turns to a sneer as his visage flickers and shifts. With a twist he pulls the hilt of the sword free from the other mans hands and uses his own to draw it out of his own body. The wound closing as his features contort and shift.

Emerging from the mass that was once Sephiroth is a horrifying figure, but one surely familiar to those who have done their research.

My guess Pancho is Sephiroth,  yeah I said it

Well at least you got me to wikipedia some stuff. What made you guess that?

It was a joke, but I think he would be someone that you might like lol .

Vote BD

If you think someone’s the biggest villain lan in all of final fantasy why would you not vote him?


Because I was making a joke, but your reaction same a little overdone

Vote Oldfield

THIS WILL BE THE ONLY WARNING. ANY FURTHER POSTING DURING ANY NIGHT PHASE WILL RESULT IN A MOD KILL.

In the shadow of the Dragon King that looms high above, a festival of sorts has begun in the courtyard of Alexandria Castle. People from all over, from places far and wide, many of which bear names unfamiliar to the people of Alexandria, have arrived. There’s a touch of excitement in the air, mixed with a hint of nerves, as the common people have made their way to get a glimpse of Princess Garnet up close for the first time in a while. Her mother, Queen Brahne, casts a shadow down upon the crowd, a look of disgust mixed with greed as she observes them. They don’t know what troubles her.

They don’t know that Princess Garnet escaped from the castle with the help of one of her closest friends and confidants early in the morning, having discovered the depths of the depravity and suffering that the Queen was responsible for. Garnet always did stick her nose where it didn’t belong, disobedient little... It is all that Brahne can do to keep her rage held deep within her. However, she had a plan. A plan to make sure she got her way. A plan to make sure her rebellious daughter never got out of her sight again. And once the girl was back safely under lock and key? Then these blasted peasants that idolized her would pay. Every. Single. One of them.

Turning away from the crowd and returning to her throne room, it wasn’t long before the individuals whose audience she had requested made their appearance. Yes. She had a plan.

It was coming together now.

---------------------------

Later, long after the sun has set and the crowd, having long forgotten that the Princess was supposed to have made an appearance, has had a chance to heighten their revelry Queen Brahne and her guards drag a red headed man out into the Courtyard. One of the guards slams a stump down onto the ground as the man is forced to his knees, having his head pressed to that very stump. It is then that the voice of the Queen booms out loudly throughout the crowd.

“PEOPLE OF ALEXANDRIA AND THOSE WHO HAVE COME FROM VERY FAR AWAY…”

Her words hang on the air as she pauses to collect her breath, and also for emphasis.

“A great tragedy has befallen our kingdom on this day. The Princess, Garnet Til Alexandros XVII, has been taken by ROGUES and is being held ransom. But fear not. She did not fail to put up a fight. This SCOUNDREL was found in her chambers unconscious.

Have faith, good people, that the Princess will be returned to us. No stone will be left unturned. But let it be known that the justice of the kingdom of Alexandria is swift to those who cross us!”


Queen Brahne looks over to one of her guards and nods her head. A moment later the individual raises a large greatsword into the air.

Desperate, the red haired man screams two words as the greatsword plummets toward his neck.

“SHE LIES!”

And with a sickening thud the sword brings the man’s life to a close as a wave of confusion and fear falls over the crowd.

Who to believe? Their queen? Or the man who was just executed before their very eyes? These thoughts likely keep the crowd, and the heroes within, up all night as they consider what to do.

WELCOME TO FINAL FANTASY MAFIA



Let's keep up the string of good, fun play. Hope you enjoy the game.


THE RULES

  • Vote and Unvote in BOLD and on a separate line of text to help the mods when compiling votes for the vote counts. Example:

Quote
Your stuff here

Vote: ELI

Oh wait, I'm a flip flopper.

Unvote

Why don't we just let this day phase go by so the scum can do their thing?

Vote: No-Lynch
  • Don't use secretive code or hidden text to hide cheating in your posts.
  • Don't talk about the game outside of the game other than in a mod-approved Discord channel.
  • If a player reaches the necessary votes to initiate a lynch, that player will be lynched even if someone quickly unvotes.
    • Regardless, until I call for a lynch and tell you you're dead, you can continue to fight and post in the thread.
  • However, once you are dead, you are dead. No more posting, not even a BAH post.
  • Once night phase begins, there will be no talking permitted in the game thread. Any post during this time will be punished.
  • You must PM here on the boards any actions you would like to perform if you have an active ability (unless I give the ok to send it on discord or some other means of communication). If they are sent anywhere else or not sent by deadline, they will not be counted.
    • If you want to choose not to use your ability, PM me that so that we're not waiting the whole night phase.
  • Day phases will last 72 hours.
  • Night phases will last 48 hours.
  • Never quote anything sent to you from me. You may paraphrase if you so chose but just remember there may be in game consequences (like if you're dumb enough to claim lie detector on day 2 like me smh).
  • Flavor is important in this game to an extent. Role claiming and character claiming are not forbidden, but remember that flavor does matter.
  • Be kind to each other. Don't be an jerk. Avoid personal attacks.
  • Be active. I'll prod you if you're not. Punish you if you repeat. Mod-kill if I have to.
    • I've worked hard making this game and I have a co-mod to help if I have questions or concerns or need an opinion on something. So a lot of effort is going into this. So please, be as active as you can. Don't make me have to do this..



THE GAME WILL BEGIN SOON.

DO NOT POST IN THIS GAME THREAD UNTIL I SAY DAY 1 HAS BEGUN.

VIOLATORS WILL BE PUNISHED

I’ve never played final fantasy… but up for the mafia game if I won’t be hindering things because of it.

You won’t be hindering things.
