M37: Peak Oil, 200 Years Too Soon - Town Wins

Alright, role PMs have been sent out and the game is finally ready to start...

The year is 1855. The setting, the American West. A team of gangsters, commissioned by a time-traveling oil tycoon from the year 2180 named Big Doyle and led by legendary outlaw Jonny "The Fastest Gun in the West" Peterson, has infiltrated the once-peaceful mining town of Gunshot Gulch, Nevada in order to dig up a plentiful source of oil located below the surface. Oil is exceptionally rare in the late 22nd century and Doyle plans to bring the gallons he would dig up back to his own time, where he will sell it for trillions of euros.
The gangsters' only opposition is the 13 innocent townspeople of Gunshot Gulch who are determined to protect their village. Well, that's not totally right. Thankfully, Doyle was followed back in time by a Time Cop who has taken a vow to prevent the timeline from being altered and to stop the villainous oil tycoon at any cost. Unfortunately, he's already failed the first part, what with making his presence known to villagers in 1855 and all. But that's alright; he can still succeed in the second.
Oh yeah, and there's some prospector who wants all the gold in Gunshot Gulch for himself or something too, no matter who he has to kill. The townspeople will have to deal with all this in...

M37: Peak Oil, 200 Years Too Soon
Format: Roleflip - 18 Players
This is a roleflip game. Since every player is a unique character, their specific role will be identified when they are killed (by default). However, cardflip colors are still included.

The Gangster Squad
Big Doyle: A greedy oil tycoon from the year 2180. He is the diabolical mastermind behind all of this, and can use cloaking technology to alter his appearance to appear blue if no autopsy is performed on him. (TheDinoKing)
Jonny "The Fastest Gun in the West" Peterson: A legendary outlaw in 1850s Nevada. As long as he's alive, he will be able to kill one player on even-numbered nights, thanks to his incredible quick draw. (Waddle Derp)
Black Bill Redford: Named for his ashen face thanks to his work with explosives, Bill can place a bomb on one player each night that is rigged to explode if that player dies; if so the player will cardflip black with no name revealed. The bombs will decay by the next night. (Supershroom)
Mr. Skull: 160 years before he joined the ghost pirate crew, Mr. Skull was a gangster in the Old West. He spies on other players and gives them good bones and calcium, and can visit one player each night to eavesdrop on any host PMs they received. (Sanct)
(All members have contact with each other and conspire to kill one player each night.)
Goal: Eliminate the Prospector and equal or outnumber the townspeople.

The Townspeople
Doc Fesstival: The doctor who performs the autopsy on players every morning and night after someone dies. If he dies, the roleflip mechanic will be retired in favor of regular cardflips, since he won't be able to identify the bodies. He can also choose to permanently retire and disable this ability during the night from Night 2 onwards, which will be announced to the whole game. (Zeldamaster12)
Time Cop: A mysterious time cop from the future who doesn't play by the rules. He's extensively researched the population of Gunshot Gulch and can inspect one player each night to learn that player's cardflip color. (MECHDRAGON777)
Sheriff Westin: Gunshot's sheriff, who has been set aside in his inspection capabilities by the Time Cop. He's looking to build up a posse to combat the gangsters himself, and can reveal his role to one player each night. (ShadowStarX)
Crazy Carl Williams: If Jonny Peterson is the fastest gun in the west, Carl Williams is the craziest. He can kill one player each night, but will lose this ability for one night if he kills an innocent. (glitch4)
One Horse: The only horse in this town, he can sit on one player each night to prevent that player from being night killed. Obviously, he can't sit on himself. (Nanaya Jacob)
Eric the Bartender: Has no ability, but cardflips blue if not identified by Doc Fesstival. (thehelmetguy1)
Lester the Kid: Regular townsperson (Danny)
Timmy Claymore: Regular townsperson. (Timmy Claymore)
Frank Strange: Regular townsperson. (PixelPest)
Vinny, the general store owner: Regular townsperson. (Megar)
The Texan Smoker: Regular townsperson. (Ness-Wednesday)
Barney the Carnie: Regular townsperson. (witchking666)
TNT Tyrone: A legendary former mercenary who previously worked with Jonny "The Fastest Gun in the West" Peterson. He has been retired for years, but will appear guilty if not identified by Doc Fesstival.
Goal: Eliminate the gangsters and prospector.

The Prospector
Ol' Ben, the Prospector: A crazed and greedy prospector who is obsessed with taking Gunshot Gulch and its oil for himself. Each night, he can kill one player. He can also protect himself by hiding in a hole if someone tries to kill him, rendering him immune to night kills. People don't think of him as a bad guy normally, so he cardflips green if not identified by Doc Fesstival (revealing his stolen gold). (Doesntpostverymuch)
Goal: Be the last player standing.

You were sent back in time from your home era of 2180 to assist the town of Gunshot Gulch in apprehending Big Doyle and his gangster cronies before they do irreparable damage to the timeline.

Your goal is to eliminate the Gangster Squad and prospector to protect the town at all costs.
Role PM wrote:You are Crazy Carl Williams! While Jonny Peterson may be The Fastest Gun in the West, you are the craziest - and you have nowhere to stay outside of Gunshot Gulch. Each night, you can shoot and kill one player. While you may be a little crazy, you still care about your fellow man and will not kill a player on the next night if you kill an innocent.

Your goal is to eliminate the Gangster Squad and prospector to protect the town at all costs.
Role PM wrote:You are the One Horse in Gunshot Gulch! And you know... somehow, you might be mistaken for a human. Maybe. You can imagine yourself as walking around like a person or something. I don't know. I didn't. Each night, you can sit on one player to protect them from being nightkilled. If you are successful, the following message will be included in the phase transition message the next morning:

You cannot sit on yourself, obviously.

Role PM wrote:You are Eric the Bartender! While you are a normal townsperson, you have quite a reputation in Gunshot Gulch for being the one everyone talks to when they're having problems. For this reason, you might be mistaken for having some special abilities among the town and you will cardflip blue if your corpse isn't identified by Doc Fesstival.

Role PM wrote:You are Ol' Ben, the Prospector! You are an elderly oil prospector and, unbeknownst to anyone else, you've been trying to get your hands on the oil under Gunshot Gulch for as long as you can remember - specifically, last Wednesday afternoon. Each night, you can kill one player with your pickaxe. Additionally, you live in a hole out in the desert that is unknown to anyone else in the town, so you will be safe from being killed at night. If someone makes an attempt on your life, the following message will be included in the phase transition message on the next morning:
Protected wrote:Someone tried to kill <you> last night, but they were nowhere to be found!
The town thinks of you as a harmless old man, your name lost to history, and only Doc Fesstival has diagnosed your obsessive tendencies, so you will cardflip green if he does not identify your corpse.

Day 2
Doesntpostverymuch was a very troubled miner. 2 days ago, he had decided he was going to take the town of Gunshot Gulch for himself in the chaos of the gangsters' strike on the town. From his secret base on the outskirts of town, he had been planning the systematic deaths of the whole town. But when he was discovered by the town for shady comments made early on, he crumpled under the pressure. He attempted to bargain with the town for immunity in exchange for offing the gangsters with his pickaxe, but they ultimately refused. He suddenly revealed that he never needed them, and pulled out a jetpack that he had stolen from MECHDRAGON777's abandoned time machine. Before he could get away, though, the townspeople grabbed him and hanged him in the center of town.
Doesntpostverymuch has died!
The office of Doc Fesstival issued an autopsy, identifying him as crazed local miner Ol' Ben, the Prospector!

Night 3
glitch4 got up bright and early after staying out late the previous night, stalking his target. He was determined to stop the gangsters at all costs, and as the craziest gun in the west, he believed that all the responsibility fell to him to do so. Excited after his exploits last night, he paraded into the town square carrying the body of his victim King of Eterity.

"I got one of 'em!" he shouted to the townspeople, stopping at every house.
But just as he threw the body to the ground, it exploded, destroying all the evidence.
King of Eterity has died! The corpse was unidentifiable.

The shockwave from the explosion sent glitch4 flying into the general store, the impact breaking his neck.
glitch4 has died!
The office of Doc Fesstival issued an autopsy, identifying him as vigilante gunman Crazy Carl Williams!

Day 3
The townspeople rallied together for an insta!

Supershroom cackled to himself as he worked on his next bomb in the back of the sheriff's office that the gangsters had taken over. They were so close to having the town for themselves, even if it meant selling out to a mysterious man from the future. Suddenly, half the town broke into his office, accusing him of having covered up King of Eterity's death to confuse the town. Supershroom denied everything, hiding the bomb behind the desk, but it wasn't enough, and he was shot.
Supershroom has died!
The office of Doc Fesstival issued an autopsy, identifying him as gangster and explosives expert Black Bill Redford!

RSuperTheGreat has died!
The office of Doc Fesstival issued an autopsy, identifying her as townsperson Timmy Claymore!

Ness-Wednesday was smoking one of his custom-rolled cigars, but it seemed that someone had poisoned it.
Ness-Wednesday has died!
The office of Doc Fesstival issued an autopsy, identifying him as townsperson The Texan Smoker!

Day 4
Waddle Derp had been shifty-eyed all night. He and Supershroom had been in this business for years - how could anyone have found them out? He was furious at his old partner TNT Tyrone now more than ever - that traitor! Thankfully he had tricked that wannabe gunslinger glitch4 into taking him out -- or had he? Waddle Derp wasn't any more sure than the others about that; Supershroom's bombs always did the trick, after all. Waddle Derp had poisoned Ness-Wednesday, too - not his usual forte, being the fastest gun in the west and all, but he felt an ironic death was necessary when the townspeople were so infuriatingly close to taking him down. Unfortunately, he was in such a panic when the townspeople came to interrogate him that he had no defense - and the fastest gun in the west was no more.
Waddle Derp has died!
The office of Doc Fesstival issued an autopsy, identifying him as notorious gangster Jonny "The Fastest Gun in the West" Peterson!

Night 5
Nanaya Jacob was a hardworking work horse brought west by the first settlers of Gunshot Gulch. His business was sitting on people, and though he had never saved anyone, he had done his best. Tonight, as he sat and hoped the gangsters wouldn't find the one he was sitting on, he found the gangsters coming for him - the one thing he dreaded more than anything.
Nanaya Jacob has died!
The office of Doc Fesstival issued an autopsy, identifying him as the One Horse in town!

Day 5
Sanct had bone-chilling plans for what remained of the town. As an undead gangster, he was committed to the spreading of death across the world - and working with TheDinoKing, oil tycoon from the future, was his latest venture. With the deaths of their close allies Supershroom and Waddle Derp, the two criminals realized they were doomed - and they walked into the town square, dejected, to meet the townspeople. Zeldamaster12, the old country doctor, was packing a pistol and he shot Sanct, shattering his bones.
Sanct has died!

Zeldamaster issued an autopsy right there, identifying him as undead gangster Mr. Skull!
TheDinoKing was next. He demanded that the town listen to him, and let him defend himself, but they were having none of it. Finally, he shouted out in a rage that even though he hadn't succeeded, it wasn't over, and he would do anything to survive. He activated a portable time machine and created a gateway back to the future, intending to complete his plans in another time, another place. Before that could happen, though, Megar and thehelmetguy, the local general store owner and bartender, both shot at the gateway as TheDinoKing stepped through, closing it and slicing him in half.
TheDinoKing has died!
Zeldamaster issued another autopsy, identifying him as Big Doyle, oil tycoon from the year 2180!

Zeldamaster12, thehelmetguy1, and Megar went on to win a Nobel Peace Prize as well as a Daytime Emmy for their work in the sitcom "Megar in the Middle".

Sanct went on to reform over 100 years later, changing his name to Bloodedge and joining a band of ghost pirates.
Phases will shift around 8:00 PM (in Eastern Time) each day, or earlier if all required actions are performed (all ability PMs received during the night, or an insta-lynch during the day).

THE TOWN WINS!

Please include me in your alliance PMs and secret Discord groups, and send me relevant IRC (lol) and private Discord logs! This will help me write player analyses after the game is over (and helps me make sure that people aren't doing anything shady).

Also, if you have a night ability but are not using it, please PM me anyways to confirm this!

Thanks, and good luck to everyone!

A player asked me earlier if Black Bill Redford's ability obscured a dying player's role to the Gangster Squad (mafia), so I'll clarify that it does - no one, including the Gangster Squad, will learn the role/color of the player targeted (it is essentially a painting ability).
